76  Assistance / Pardus Project / Re: Desktop setting on: November 10, 2010, 23:04:28 PM
And the wallpaper? I think it is an old wallpaper of pardus 2009.

I think that that is a splash screen rather than a wallpaper (the KDE startup screen?) I'm sure I've seen it but I don't quite remember where.

I just spotted this review of YALI via FSDaily.

The regular KDE session crashes back to log in. KDE safe works fine. Spell checking in Firefox is broken, actually I have never had a fresh install of Pardus with it working. The rest of the desktop seems to work and look fine. Is there some output I can provide to help and see what is going on ?

This sounds very like the problem I mentioned in an earlier post, that I've reported as bug 14167. If you can add your error messages and hardware set up it may help the developers to isolate the problem.

It seems there's a problem with the openchrome video driver, which causes a segfault on starting KDE.
I've reported it as bug 14167.

The URL for the download link looks to have got corrupted, the address appearing in the message is OK but the link has an extra ftp// in it. As far as I can tell, it's a bug in the [ftp] option in the posting tool as I could not get it to insert a correct FTP URL. (So if you want to download, copy the URL off the original message and paste it into a browser address window).

Though it's been reported for a while, it's good to see that the 64-bit version is also available.
82  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: can't view .CSV format [solved] on: August 18, 2010, 23:14:06 PM
It's also worth noting that the CSV import in OpenOffice can handle a wide range of separators beyond just commas, and in recent versions does a pretty good job of guessing the format of the file.  Though you may need to tweak things like the behaviour with multiple separators.
83  General / The Pub / KDE 4.5 release? on: August 09, 2010, 18:09:15 PM
KDE 4.5 was supposed to release last week, but there's nothing yet on the KDE web site. Has anyone heard the reason for the delay?
84  Assistance / Software / Re: Download manager other than aria2 on: August 06, 2010, 21:54:27 PM
I don't have either of my Pardus boxes to hand to check the actual packages involved but it looks like you have one or more packages that supply header files not installed.

I think it should be considered a Pardus packaging bug in that the package that supplies /usr/include/errno.h should also supply /usr/include/linux/errno.h (to pick just one example from the errors listed) or at least require the package that does.
85  Assistance / Laptop / Re: Which laptop to buy? on: July 31, 2010, 19:45:18 PM
Hi good people,

I want to buy a laptop (1000$ at most). I have in mind Acer, Asus or Packard Bell (no HP, Dell nor Toshiba). I want it to be

64 GB SSD unit (I don't need more because I work with an external usb hard drive)
4 or 8 GB RAM (8 better)
15'' screen.

You might want to check out Zareason to see if any of their laptops meet your need, they claim that their machines work without special drivers. They have an option for no-pre-installed system (the default is Ubuntu with other *buntu and Mint as alternatives). I'm not sure where you are located but they do ship inernationally.

I was not able to get my System76 laptop to recognize many of the Fn keys when booting from the Pardus live-CD, but I didn't fiddle with it for very long. I suspect that things like Fn-F1 to disable the touchpad would need a bunch of hacking to get the System76 drivers installed on a non-Ubuntu system.
86  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Migrating to Pardus - on: July 23, 2010, 21:05:24 PM
I guess one other thing I should add is that the package selection is pretty good though less comprehensive than in the Debian/Ubuntu family. Given the fact that Pardus is funded by the Turkish research funding agency, it not surprising that it's strongest in the scientific & office software, but less so in games and other recreational programs.
87  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Migrating to Pardus - on: July 23, 2010, 20:05:34 PM
    I would like to migrate to Pardus without losing all my existing set up.

 My hard disc is partioned as follows:-

PClos root 12GB/swap 3.9GB/Home 449Gb

So, using "advanced" if I set it up I to just format root and swap will I retain My home folder?
It should, but I would strongly advise making a backup just in case anything goes wrong. There might be issues with ownership and group,  I don't know enough about PClos to know how it handles users & groups.

and will all my existing programs run correctly ?
That depends -- scripts should be just fine, c & fortran code will probably be OK, c++ might need to be recompiled & relinked depending on whether your previous distro had similar versions of the c++ libraries. (Of course if your previous distro was 64-bit then any compiled code will need recompiling).
88  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How does Konqueror compare to other web browsers? on: July 23, 2010, 19:55:46 PM
I use Konqueror as my main browser on some machines and these are just a few thoughts:

  • Integration with file-management
  • Support for other protocols (FTP, SFTP...)
  • Handling of links to movies, images etc.

  • Flash plugin -- inclined to go into a "runaway" 100% CPU state
  • Recognition by web sites (not really konqueror's fault but many site including gmail go to a minimal version or refuse to work). You can tell it to lie to the site but do so at your own risk.

Another concern is the state of future support, KDE now defaults to the Dolphin file manager over konqueror, and it looks likely that the WebKit-based rekonq will become the preferred browser, the current version (which is not the one in Pardus) is getting quite usable though there are rough edges. [As a personal aside here: I think that the integration of file manager & browser was a good thing and that KDE is going the wrong way in separating them].
89  Assistance / Software / Re: q(t)emu -- does it need hardware accelerated graphics? on: July 17, 2010, 06:35:33 AM
There is a virtualbox package in the main repository for 2009.2, which I have installed but:
That is correct, but the repository version does  not have all the support that the Wiki version has.
The Wiki version will automatically show a screen to mount an iso file at first start when no OS is detected inside VirtualBox.
Otherwise you can add an iso file in Settings > Storage (translated from Dutch).

That certainly works a lot better than qemu, thanks for the pointer.

(As regards the resolution with the Nvidia drivers, all I know is that I had the same issue with at least 4 distros.)

There is a virtualbox package in the main repository for 2009.2, which I have installed but:
1) I couldn't find an option to install from an ISO on disk,
2) I've not had a chance to mess with it since fixing the bad memory, that was causing both virtualbox & qemu to crash during installations.

I'll give it another go over the weekend.

[As for the Nvidia drivers and the FX5200, as I recall the proprietary driver works at 1680x1050 over VGA but not DVI, and the VGA quality on that monitor is significantly less crisp than the DVI. The resolution issue was discussed somewhere, probably in the Ubuntu forums.]
