46  Assistance / Bugs / Re: firefox crash on: January 30, 2011, 17:09:37 PM
Given that you've reintalled firefox, and the fact that the problem isn't universal, I think the problem is somewhere else. Given the original error message, my next target would be glib. A useful command here could be:
Code:
pisi check glib2
(Or any other package you might suspect).
47  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: LVM on: January 30, 2011, 16:58:50 PM
I think there should be a workaround (such as modifying grub, etc.). If there is no way it can be installed on an external HD, then, in my opinion this qualifies as a bug

I've not tried LVM, but I have installed 2011 on an external hard drive using custom partitioning so if there is a problem it must be the combination of External+LVM, or be specific to certain hardware.

The procedure I followed (disk selection stuff only) was:
Code:
[Ensure that USB HDD is ahead of internal HDD in the BIOS boot sequence (The order I have is CD, USB, Internal).]
Select disk --> /dev/sdb
Custom partitioning: Make 3 partitions: 15Gb for /, 1Gb for swap and the rest (about 23 Gb) for /home.
Install grub on MBR of /dev/sdb

I was actually somewhat surprised that it found the Kubuntu boot options from /dev/sda & lists them as well (though I think that the machine has been upgraded through enough Kubuntu releases it may not have transitioned to grub2).

I tried when i used the 32bit version, since the 64bit didnt have chrome or Konqueror, and It didnt work.

Konqueror was installed by default on my 64-bit install, and I've just installed chromium-browser and am using it to post this message.

I am used to ubuntu, and sudo apt-get install, isnt exactly working on Pardus. hehe

The Pardus equivalent is "sudo pisi it". ("pisi help" lists the available commands).

As far as I know the Pardus devs don't go in for having multiple versions available.

I'd say the problem you're having is something that should be reported upstream (i.e. to the Firefox bug system) and then if it gets fixed there, request an update in the Pardus system -- however since they have released with a beta, I guess the plan is to update to the 4.0 release when it comes along.

Do you have any NFS mounts?

I have seen similar problems in the past on some Debian systems where the NFS server had gone away before the client shut down (since this was 4 or more years ago, I don't recall the precise details).
51  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Nvidia driver on Pardus 2011 on: January 26, 2011, 21:07:43 PM
I see it with the nvidia173 (older cards) driver, but not with Nouveau. The effect is also present (on a different machine) with openchrome driver for VIA cards, so the problem may be nearer to the core.

The reviews of 2011 are starting to arrive:

54  Assistance / Bugs / Re: Network Settings dialog shows no connections on: January 14, 2011, 23:01:18 PM
Another possibility is wicd. I've used that extensively on laptops as older versions of the KDE network manager did not scan for ESSIDs. I can't quite remember where it is (I don't have a Pardus box to hand here) but I think the "system settings" tool has a chooser to let you pick which tool to use to manage network connections (one of the many nice little admin tools that are Pardus-specific).
55  Assistance / Bugs / Re: Network Settings dialog shows no connections on: January 14, 2011, 22:23:00 PM
I'm not sure if this is best described as a bug of a feature. It is however definitely not specific to Pardus -- I see the same thing on Kubuntu.

Essentially the automatically-generated profiles are not shown in the network manager's "Manage Connections" tool, only the user-defined ones. What would be useful is something like a "New from current" option to allow you to use the automatic profile as a starting point.
56  General / Wish list / Re: Official English forum on: January 11, 2011, 21:00:01 PM
The best thing to try would be to put in a wishlist bug (I'm pretty sure I've seen a section for the forums in the bugzilla navigation).
57  Assistance / Software / Re: Let Pardus become #1 on: January 09, 2011, 23:32:39 PM
yeaj, but then as a spin-off of all work and effort put in (autonomic growth) and not as the result of a beauty-contest or a popularity test in which hundred-thousands of people echo each other as a group of sheep  Grin

I get the feeling that Pardus gets quite a bit of attention in the technical Linux sites which may be a better indicator.

Talking of which, there's another on TechRadar which has just published brief reviews of several distros under a number of categories, and Pardus is included in the Easy to use section:

There's a brief note (not much more than a repeat of the announcement) in Linux User & Developer:

59  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Swap Partition Size ? on: December 29, 2010, 21:57:49 PM
1) Do I need a swap partition  (I have 2 Gib of Ram) ?
2) If I need it should it be as big as the Ram ?

Although in principle you don't, there are things that run better if you have one even if they fit into real memory. I'm not sure why, maybe some pseudo-filesystems actually try to write into the swap space.

Swap size == Memory size is the "traditional" value (although in the 2.2 kernel era there was a time when swap <= memory was useless this is no longer true [nor was it for 2.0.x and I don't go back to the 1.x kernels]) however with the larger real memory available these days it's probably not necessary to have that much. I'd suggest that a 1Gb swap partition is a reasonable size (I've not had any issues with 1Gb on systems ranging from a netbook with 1Gb RAM all the way up to a 24Gb compute server).

Also remember Seymour Cray's reason for not putting virtual memory on his computers: "If you haven't got it you haven't got it".
