Thank you! It's a good ad-blocker and deserves to be available.

2  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Privoxy for Pardus 2009.1? on: February 08, 2010, 00:44:06 AM
Hi. I've just installed Pardus 2009.1 in Virtualbox. I'm looking to install an advertisement blocker for my browser (Opera). My favorite ad blocker is Privoxy, but I can't find any info on Privoxy and Pardus in your wiki or forum, or in Google, or in your repositories.

Is the Privoxy package available for Pardus 2009.1 in another Pardus repository? Or, is there another ad blocker available for Pardus? Not the Firefox ad blocker, please!!!

Thank y'all for your help. I tried deleting all virtualbox from Pardus and then installing the Guest Additions that I already have, but it didn't work. I reinstalled but, after the first update I'm back to the black screen. Seems like it just doesn't like me. Maybe it was the kernel update. I'll try Pardus again later on; maybe things will have settled down by then.

I hadn't felt the need yet to update my Virtualbox from 2.2.4 to 3.0.6 as 2.2.4 does everything I need ("If it ain't broke, don't fix it").

Thanks anyway.

I have Pardus installed inside Virtualbox. Virtualbox is installed in Antix-M8.2. So the host is Antix and the guest is Pardus.

Thanks, Lisa, but no go. In frustration I deleted everything Virtualbox, and still get only the black screen.

Maybe I'll try Pardus again later. Have a good time over there in Arkansas!

I have Pardus 2009 installed also in Virtualbox (2.2.4) and, after updating today, my login screen is trashed. It looked very much like FoxXav's picture.

He said he solved it by "unstalling the virtualbox kernel module". I didn't understand: In Pisi, under 'Installed', I have three: 'module-virtualbox-guest', 'module-virtualbox-guest-userspace', and 'virtualbox-guest-utils'. Which of these do I uninstall?

7  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: New installation of P2009 + ~123 updates = DBus error on: September 24, 2009, 21:07:33 PM
That possibly confirms my suspician, that it's a problem of something not being there when Pisi (GUI) gets there and wants it, _IF_ I understood that command: pisi up -y would mean 'Pisi, do an upgrade, answer all questions with 'yes".' ('up' is short for upgrade?)

So I reinstalled from the ISO into Virtualbox, and immediately did '# pisi ur', and then '#pisi up -yN' (some of the colors were awful hard to read, so I addad the N). It went through to conclusion just fine, no hangups. Then I rebooted, and my login screen was trashed, but that's a subject for a different post.

Looking around in y'alls documentation, it looks like Pisi is the ONLY package manager in Pardus. There's an old proverb about putting all your eggs in one basket :^).

Anyway, I decided to see if Pisi on the command line was any better than Pisi at the GUI.
Code:
# pisi update-repo
# pisi upgrade firefox

Well, that worked! Now I have Firefox 3.5.3. So:
Code:
# pisi update-repo
# pisi upgrade

Wow!!! It went through a LOT of packages which apparently had been cached, then downloaded a few, then went to installing. 124 out of 124 (it had been 135 before I upgraded firefox). Now the GUI Pisi shows no updates due and looks like it's ready to go.

So, until Pisi gets fixed, use the command line pisi for your updates according to the instructions HERE:
http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pisi_CLI_Usage#Updating_Repositories

Wish I had done this before I made my last post!

I've just installed Pardus 2009 in Virtualbox 2.2.4 in an Antix M-8.2 host. I was unable to complete my initial upgrade after a bunch of tries and several reinstalls, but Pisi is not among the packages listed for upgrade so I couldn't try updating it by itself. I downloaded the fix...py script and got these error messages when I ran it:
Code:
Searching for broken packages...
0 broken package found...
Re-installing broken packages...

After 4 cycles of start... stopped, restart... stopped, etc, Pisi refused to access the internet any longer.

Gee whizzz!!! Any fix in sight?
