How do I export other partitions?

something like

/dev/sda7 client_computer_name(rw,sync)

in exports does not work!

At the risk of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, the export path should be the mount point not the device name. So if the partition /dev/sda7 is mounted as /data then the export line should be:
Code:
/data client_computer_name(rw,sync)

Thanks James, that is similar to what I am experiencing.  Also, when logging in the screen doesn't reflect what I have typed for several seconds.

I don't see the lag in typing, either on the login screen nor on authorization boxes.

When typing in the Admin/Root password or just about anytime authentication is required, there is a substantial delay before the screen actually reflects it. In the case of root, by the time the screen has entered what I typed authentication has timed out. So, I cannot add new software, for example.

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Not exactly, but one thing I did see (which could be interpreted this way) was that with the very long list of updates after an install of 2011 beta2 there was quite a long delay between clicking on the update button in the package manager and the authentication screen appearing and I clicked again thinking I'd either missed the button or moved the mouse during the click.

When I did this the authentication window appeared, and I entered the password; but a window appeared saying that I was not permitted to do the operation. The system went ahead and did the updates anyway, but the only progress indication was the network monitor plasmoid, and the only way out of the package manager was via window manager kill.

Am I going bonkers or is there a major problem?

Well slightly bonkers it appears! The setting comes after the reboot (IMHO not very good).
But the installer did ask if i remembered my password before the reboot.

I'm just installing 2011 beta 2 64-bit version on a new machine and nowhere did it ask me to set a username & password or a root password! Actually I'm doing it a second time in case I missed something.

Am I going bonkers or is there a major problem?

I think I've now got enough evidence that the wireless issue is a Pardus bug, since it works as it should with another 2.6.36 based live CD (Chakra) that also has the kerrnel rfkill as a module.

Now reported as: http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=15552

Try in a normal console (wihout first downloading the package rfkill):
Code:
sudo pisi it http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus-2009/rfkill-0.3-1-1.pisi
For 2011: the path is http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/stable/x86_64/... (or i686 for 32 bit).

Turns out that there are 2 problems:
1) The package database isn't correctly set up on the live media and
2) /usr is read-only

[I'm wondering if there is a regression in the kernel rfkill in 2.6.36, there were some comments to that effect in one of the Arch forums. I'd be surprised if the Pardus devs go to 2.6.37 before the release after nearly getting burned by a late kernel update last time round.]

Turns out that the touvchpad is toggled by Ctrl-Alt-T on Pardus, not sure how it overrides the FN-F1 as that is (according to the folks at Sytem76) a hardware switch that should work on any OS [even DOS].

The wireless is still a bit of a mystery. One test I'd like to try is to see if it needs rfkill which is not on the live image. Does anyone know if the following scheme would work?
  • Download the pisi package for rfkill to a USB stick
  • Boot from the live image
  • Mount the USB stick with the rfkill package
  • Go to a root console and run "pisi it /media/mpt/rfkill.pisi" (or wherever the stick is mounted).

No partitions were selected -  the installer failed immediately after selecting the time zone.

What sort of system do you have? I've been having a  problem at a similar location (http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=15207) with a VIA CPU machine (HP2133) and when I looked at /var/log/syslog
  • it was complaining about the CPU not being supported, while it may well not be related it could be.
  • Goto a console with Ctrl-Alt-F1 and then "tail -f /var/log/syslog"

Partly solved: The setting for different activities for each desktop is in the pager widget, not the system settings nor the activities menu
  • Right-click on the pager
  • Select "Pager settings"
  • Go to the Virtual desktops selector
  • Select "Different widgets on each desktop"

Not that discoverable but it is there.

The final release will be later then the first roadmap. But I suppose they have good reason for the delay. Smiley

Better to delay than to release with problems.

Sorry I forgot to say: I'm running 2011 Beta.

For the drivers, it decided to use the NVIDIA driver and that doesn't support the resolution of the monitor (the 173 driver for 5200 series cards won't go above 1600 pixels in the x-direction) so I wanted to force Nouveau, preferably by a less brutal means than uninstalling nvidia173.
74  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Tools for Video driver and multiple desktop activities. on: November 28, 2010, 23:12:14 PM
Can anyone recall/find where the following have gone:

1) The tool for selecting a video driver (e.g. forcing a particular selection from nvidia, nouveau and nv), I'm sure there used to be a select-driver option in the system settings -> display menus.

2) The tools for selecting "different activity of each desktop", again it's been a while but I'm sure there used to be a menu option somewhere that allowed you to zoom the desktops and then there was a set of options to do that, but right now I've lost the zoom menu item.


I know this isn't Pardus-specific as I've also looked for them on Kubuntu  and can't find them there either.

75  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Hotkeys on System76 laptop (Pangolin P5) on: November 23, 2010, 23:58:56 PM
Has anybody here tried to get the hotkeys for a System76 Laptop working on Pardus (specifically the Pangolin P5, but I think they are mostly quite similar)? Using the live image for 2011 (64bit) most seem to work -- in particular the behaviour of the video selector (Fn F7) is better than under *buntu, but there are 3 that don't seem to work:

Fn F1 -- enable/disable touchpad -- without this the system is pretty much unusable certainly for typing any amount of text.
Fn F11 -- toggle wireless -- important as there are times when I don't have access to a Cat5.
Fn F4 -- sleep -- less important (I don't think I've ever actually used it).

If anyone has done any or all of these I'd like to know what to do, otherwise I'll try the Ubuntu forums and report back any useful information.
