1  General / General topics / Re: How did you hear about Pardus? on: July 23, 2009, 03:10:11 AM
I first heard about Pardus just a few days ago from Softpedia.

The more I use it the more I like it. As a Matter of fact, IMO Pardus is right up there with my other favorites, openSUSE and Mint KDE.

Keep up the good work Pardus team!

Yes that would be possible but I don't like to wait for the 20GB file to copy over.

Plus the way I do it now all changes, files, updates and installed software are accessible no matter which distro I choose to run VB.

If I install a program or add a file in VB while in Pardus today, I will have that same program/file when I use VB in openSUSE or Mint tomorrow.

Figuring it out initially is sometimes hard, sometimes not but always worth it in the long run.  Smiley

I was weaned on openSUSE 11.1

Been using Linux since February.

openSUSE is the distro I compare all others to. (KDE)

So far in addition to openSUSE I really like Mint 7 KDE RC1, and Pardus is looking good so far.

Mandriva was nice but just not for me.

Did not like Fedora, Kubuntu and PCLinux at all, although I'll try PCLinux again once they release 2009.3 with KDE4.

I just think it's great that there's so much to choose from.

Yasp is a great system monitor widget, if you have Nvidia graphics. I tried to compile it but failed.

Yawp is a nice weather widget.

By the way I do this so that I can use the same virtual hard disk in Virtualbox without having to reinstall the OS everytime I install or reinstall a new distro.

i hope this helps someone else.  Smiley

I'm going to see if I can't mount it under a different directory with different options in fstab.

This worked for me. I removed:
Code:
/dev/sdb2            /mnt/sdb2        ntfs-3g   dmask=007,fmask=117,gid=6,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

And replaced it with:
Code:
UUID=1F4D93145B084DAB /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

Try this:
Open Dolphin > surf to the file > right-click on the file and in the Permissions tab > Set "Is executable"
In the Permissions tab also the owner is shown.
If root is the owner of the file, the above isn't going to work.
In this case press simultaneously Alt+F2 and enter:
Quote
kdesu dolphin
Enter the root password (wait some seconds) and root-Dolphin will appear.
And repeat the above.
I hope this is the solution!  Wink

Thanks but I already tried both of those. Root is the owner, but using Dolphin as root still won't let me change the permissions.

I'm going to see if I can't mount it under a different directory with different options in fstab.

Thanks but that did not work. Here is my fstab. /dev/sdb2 is the partition the file is in.

Code:
mark@Family ~ $ cat /etc/fstab
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#
#   <fs>             <mountpoint>     <type>    <opts>               <dump/pass>

LABEL=PARDUS_HOME    /home            ext4      defaults,user_xattr,noatime 0 0
/.swap               swap             swap      sw                   0 0
proc                 /proc            proc      nosuid,noexec        0 0

Thanks

Hi everyone,  Smiley

I heard about Pardus for the first time yesterday morning. Seems like a nice distro.

I'm always looking for nice KDE distros. This one has been added to openSUSe and Mint 7 KDE RC1.

Looking foward to playing around with Pardus and posting in the forum.

Mark
