31  General / Wish list / Re: CD/DVD labeling program on: March 01, 2011, 20:48:53 PM
Probably depends a bit on whether you are using label sheets or printable disks. But For the former, the tool that I have came with a .tiff template that I could then add designs using gimp, and for the latter again I always just filled in a circle within a square image either with gimp or OpenOffice draw.

P.S. You can upload any image from your machine as an avatar, just use the upload image option in the profile setting.

I just tested it and it works great, but it wont record in WMV, MP4 or DivX. It takes pictures of each frame and stores them in the Document folder.

Not really a solution, but transcode can take a sequence of images and turn them into a video. I use it to make movies from the outputs of data display and modelling tools where I can save each frame as a PNG or JPEG. One thing to note is that I've generally found that the deprecated imlist format where the input file is a text file with a list of the images works better than the recommended im format.
33  Assistance / Software / Flashplugin, firefox and Nvidia173 -- don't play nicely together on: February 25, 2011, 01:47:29 AM
Just a heads-up and/or query as to whether anyone else sees this.

It appears that since the latest updates to the Flashplugin the combination of the Nvidia173 driver (for FX5200) and firefox no longer works for most flash videos (YouTube & BBC News).

I don't see any problem with other browsers (e.g. Rekonq) or other X drivers (including Nouveau on the same machine).

Given that it looks to be an interaction of 2 pieces of non-free software there's probably not a lot of point submitting a bug (unless Adobe have a bug system, since it was their software that changed most recently).
34  General / General topics / Re: Mix Pardus 2011 and Corporate repos? on: February 24, 2011, 21:13:41 PM
You may get away with individual packages, but again they could have been built against different libraries
I would not recommend doing this.

That would be more likely to work in the direction of installing a corporate-2 package on 2011, as in general 2011 has more recent versions of libraries, and (apart from C++ code) there is a reasonable chance of something build against an old version of a library running with a newer one, whereas running with an older version than was used in the build is very unlikely to work.

That said, I tend to agree with mpie that mixing versions is not a great idea.
35  Assistance / Software / Re: libphp-serialization-perl on: February 23, 2011, 03:23:05 AM
It's been a while since I built any perl stuff, but as I recall the makefile.PL file is a perl script that finds all the dependencies and constructs the makefile (like ./configure in an autoconf build system). I don't remember offhand whether you then need to run make or just "make install".
36  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Installing Google Chrome 9 on: February 22, 2011, 21:23:31 PM
According to the package lists the repositories have:
chromium-browser 9.0.597.94

So all you should need to do is either select it in the package manager and install or at the command line run:
sudo pisi it chromium-browser
If you've not installed any packages with the package manager before, you may need to go to the updates tab and let it scan the repositories before it will give you a full list of available packages.

P.S. Does anybody else think it's silly that Google have chromium, chrome & chrome OS? An obsession with the number 24 perhaps!
37  General / The Pub / Re: LXER????? on: February 22, 2011, 21:13:19 PM
I can see it from work today, not tried at home -- but they OUGHT to be the same as they use the same network & DNS.

Edit: Works from home as well tonight, must have been some DNS issue.
38  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Wireless not powering on on: February 21, 2011, 17:58:18 PM
I must also say that this computer is dual booting with Windows 7, and there is no problem in windows (as expected). Perhaps the important question is how can Kubuntu automatically turn on the wireless and yet Pardus doesn't? Is there a program I am missing in Pardus?

This sounds very much like the problem I have with my laptop,  with Kubuntu and the Chakra live media the wifi toggle hotkey works fine but under Pardus (2011 and 2009.2) it is ignored and the wireless is stuck in the state that it powered up (usually off but occasionally on). This is with a different wireless card & driver (Intel, iwlagn).  I have reported this as bug 15552 (http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=15552). My suspicion is that the problem is with the keyboard handling  rather than the wireless or rfkill modules.

To verify that the problem lies with the card switching try the following command in a terminal window:
rfkill list
I would expect this to tell you that the interface is hard blocked. (You may need to use sudo [i.e. "sudo rfkill list"] to access the low level information I don't remember and I don't have the machine to hand right now).
39  General / The Pub / LXER????? on: February 20, 2011, 19:27:24 PM
Does anybody know what has happened to the Linux news site lxer (http://lxer.com)?  I've not been able to access it for a couple of days.
40  Assistance / News & Announcements / Re: Link to Pardus Worldforum. on: February 17, 2011, 21:41:36 PM
I guess the developers & maintainers are becoming more aware of the size of the user base outside Turkey.
41  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Networking error message on: February 04, 2011, 23:07:02 PM
On several systems that are running Pardus 2011, I've noticed the following error messages occurring in /var/log/syslog:
Feb  4 20:43:04 gabrielle NetworkManager[987]:    keyfile: updating /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Auto eth0.OCF6PV
Feb  4 20:43:04 gabrielle NetworkManager[987]:    keyfile:     error: File did not exist or was not a regular file
Does this make sense to anyone, or does it look like a bug?
42  General / General topics / LibreOffice on: February 03, 2011, 21:23:08 PM
In this summary of LibreOffice on Linux Devices, Pardus 2011 gets a mention as the first major release to use LibreOffice as its default office suite.

43  Assistance / Software / Re: ESPN3 on: February 01, 2011, 16:33:08 PM
Odd, I was able to do a google search for ESPN3 and click on the link and then get to the cricket reports without any problem. Maybe it was a temporary glitch either with the site or your ISP.
44  Assistance / Download/Repos / Re: Pisi updates in 2011. on: January 31, 2011, 23:04:55 PM
There are now separate 2011 and 2011-devel repository lists at http://packages.pardus.org.tr/. But so far nothing seems to have filtered through from the devel to the main -- in fact I've not seen any updates since the official release.
45  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: LVM on: January 31, 2011, 16:30:50 PM
Mahmood: I was not saying that I had a solution to what you wanted to do, only that the problem had to be in the interaction of LVM & external drive rather than a general external drive issue.

FWIW: The partitions are all physical as that seems to be the current default behaviour and I was just doing a quick & dirty install to assist in chasing down a wireless network or keyboard bug.

And yes, the custom configuration does disable LVM (I didn't look closely enough to see if there's an option to do custom with LVM).
