31  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Installer hangs - HP Mini 110 with SSD [SOLVED] on: October 21, 2009, 00:34:57 AM
I have a new HP Mini 110 with a 16GB SSD in lieu of a hard drive.  The installer hangs at:

*Populating /dev

I've done some digging and the problem does seem to be how Pardus tries to recognize/access the SSD.  (The HP Mini 110 with a standard hard drive works for other people.)  Ubuntu 8.04 with the HP Mi desktop is the preloaded OS and the SSD partitions are recognized as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2 (swap), /dev/sda3 (recovery).  

I've had other distros not work (Zenwalk, Parted Magic) but Debris Linux (based on Ubuntu) had no problem.  I was able to use gparted to create an additional partition (/dev/sda5) for Pardus.

Any suggestions?

Wait a minute!  My /home is shared by VectorLinux, Pardus, and Ubuntu with no problems.  It is VERY possible.  What you will need to do is use a different user name for your account so that settings from Mint and Pardus don't mix.

What you need is an entry in your /etc/fstab file that looks like this:
/dev/sdb1    /home            ext3      defaults,user        1 2

This assumes that your home partition is formatted ext3.  If it's ext4 or xfs or jfs or reiserfs you'll substitute the appropriate filesystem.

If you follow that link at the bottom of the thread is a link to the Bugzilla report.  There is a script posted there which solves this problem.

See: http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=10982

I use Xfce rather than KDE and the screenshot plugin is very limited.  I much prefer shutterbug, one of the sample apps that is included with the toolkit.  There are other apps which are interesting which use the FOX toolkit that could be built eventually.

I posted this maybe three weeks ago -- no response so far.

I'm still hoping someone is going to build this for Pardus Smiley
36  General / General topics / Re: How did you hear about Pardus? on: September 09, 2009, 23:16:11 PM
I initially heard about Pardus on DistroWatch, long before I started writing for Ladislav.  When 2009 came out I decided to download it, try it, and review it.  (Yes, I wrote the review of 2009 for DWW.)  Anyway, I'm still here which speaks volumes.

Except for the (now fixed) bug in pisi I've actually found Pardus 2009 to be very reliable and to have far fewer bugs than a typical Ubuntu release.  It also is the first distro where everything (and I do mean everything) worked out of the virtual box on my netbook.  I'm actually very pleased with this release.

Your solution in comment #48 at http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=11110#c48 works well for me  Grin
39  Assistance / Software / Re: text editor? on: September 09, 2009, 23:05:44 PM
if im in root mode, i cant access it.

I work with Pardus 2008.2 and have no problems to open kwrite in root-modus.

You work with Pardus 2009 I think. Perhaps it can be a Bug in Pardus 2009  Huh?


Hi, bubbel,

It's not a bug.  It's part of the security built into X.  You can enable local root access to the default display with the command:

xhost +local:root

I put that in my .bash_profile so that it runs every time I login.  That way I never have a problem accessing any X application as root using sudo or su.

medit is now also in the contrib repository.  If you do any development work it can handle syntax highlighting for a number of languages, including HTML and xml for the web developers out there.  Anyway, it's one of my favorite graphical editors.

41  Assistance / Software / Re: Other Applications on: September 09, 2009, 22:57:49 PM
Pardus has some applications (base or contrib repositories) that you might find to be as good as or better than some of the ones you are looking for.  wxcam was already mentioned.  It does everything cheese does without the GNOME dependencies.  I actually prefer vlc for my media player over audacious.  Homebank is a good home finance package.  I actually never heard of eqonomize before reading your post.

Anyway, if you check these out you may like them and save yourself some work  Grin
42  Assistance / Software / Re: Systems locks during package upgrade, PiSi no longer functional on: September 09, 2009, 20:47:54 PM
Yes, that did it.  I was trying to run the script like a shell script instead of prefixing the script name with python.  Stupid mistake on my part.   Anyway, pisi is working again  Grin

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and help.
43  Assistance / Software / Re: Systems locks during package upgrade, PiSi no longer functional on: September 09, 2009, 09:01:18 AM
Unfortunately the script did not work for me.  I get the following error after
it runs for some time:

nyssa phaedra # ./fix-zero-file-bug.py

./fix-zero-file-bug.py: line 6: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./fix-zero-file-bug.py: line 6: `broken_packages = set()'

pisi is still non-functional on my system.  I'm not a python coder so I'm not
likely to be able to debug this script myself Sad

I've already added this information to bugzilla.

I'm not 100% sure it's the same bug.  In case it is I have posted my information as a comment in the bug report. 

Based on the information there it looks like I may have to reinstall.  That is really not good.  Embarrassed

Hi, Lisa,

Unfortunately the second set of errors is my attempt to rebuild the database.  Both of your suggestions require me to rebuild the database.  I appreciate your trying to help.
