1  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Interesting discussion of mandriva-seed on: August 04, 2011, 13:50:01 PM
This discussion explains, among other things, why mandriva sometimes doesn't seem to work in windows and how it differs from dd.  https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=150

Some days I'm so brilliant I can't stand myself  Grin

Today I logged in as root and repeated the whole process. Now package Manager displays the full listing from both repositories. Pardususer.de now updates properly from the command line. Pardus no longer complains about any missing sha1sum.

Now I can take over the world!

But first I have to repair the partition table that I mangled on my usb stick. Smiley

I have re-installed pisi. However, attempts to update pardususer.de fail with the message  http://pakete.pardususer.de/http://pakete.pardususer.de/pardus-2011/i686/pisi-index.xml.xz.sha1sum' not found.

According to About.com.Linux, sha1sum performs a checksum. It would appear that a needed checksum is not being performed for the database for the pardususer.de repository.

Perhaps the server is updating. I'll try again tomorrow.

As you see, Pardus says the repository has been updated. But iso-writer and libpng are still missing from the list.

So, I did a search from the command line - and both of the missing programs are listed. So, I should be able to install them from the command line.

I knew I'd have to learn pisi from the command line one day. I may as well start now Smiley

As mentioned in my first post, I could have solved this whole thing by isntalling Macpup to a cd and using that install to install to the usb stick. However, then the wiki would not have been updated for people wanting to install Pardus to a netbook.

So, this is solved as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks everyone.

Edit: Both isowriter and mandriva-seed are now installed and running on my Pardus install.

Thanks, Atolbo.

I tried adding the pardususer.de repository, but have not been successfull. I first used the GUI method; and, while the repository list does show up, I cannot download the libpng library. Package Manager says: item not found. Isowriter is not even listed.

So, I removed the repository from the GUI Package Manager and tried the command line method. Pardus returns the message: No signature found for http://pakete.pardususer.de/pardus-2011/i686/pisi-index.xml.xz

Thank you for your assistance. However, nothing is working.

I tried the command line method first. I have all my partitions backed up in case of catastrophe. Pardus reported that it had copied the correct number of files totalling the correct number of mb. However, the stick won't boot. I know it is a bootable stick because I have booted from it before on this machine. When I tried to verify the status of the boot flag using Pardu's GUI based partition manager, the file system was marked "unknown" and there was no boot flag.

Tomorrow I plan to boot into freedos and reformat this stick using dos tools. I can't find the format command listed in the list of Linux commands my brother printed out for me.

I can't find isowriter listed in the Package Manager. I downloaded Unetbootin but it won't run in Pardus 2011. If all else fails, I can boot into Vista and run Unetbootin from there.


If pardus no longer supports mandriva-seed, maybe the wiki should be changed to reflect that.

I am unable to run mandriva-seed.

I am working in Pardus 2011 in my regular user account with administrative privileges. I am attempting to install Macpup520 to a usb stick using mandriva-seed (2010) as discussed in the Pardus wiki http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pardus:Installation2008netbook Method 2 for Linux and Windows.

At the command line, I made the file executable as described here http://linux4us.org/mdv_seed.php#note2 and then attempted to run the file as instructed on the same page. Pardus returned: command not found.

In Dolphin, I verified that the file is executable and that regular user owns the file. I tried to run it again. No luck.

Using Krusader in root mode, I tried again. This time, I received the following errormessage.

Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


I don't know what font is needed to reveal the missing characters above. If anyone needs to know what it says, i could take a screenshot of the message window.

I suspect the important information is in the last line. I'm guessing that libping12.so.0 is a dependency for mandriva-seed and in my case it is missing. A google search indicates that "png" is a reference to the graphic file format ".png", not the network command "ping". Without the needed lib file, pardus is unable to read the mandriva-seed file.

A search on libpng in the Package Manager shows it is not available to install from the official repository. I do not know how to install this file from the command line. Presumably, I would need to download it and then include it in a PATH statement; but, I only know how to do that in DOS.

Alternatively, I could use method 3 in the wiki. I understand that I need to replace "filename" with the name of the install .iso file, and "x" in sd"x"  with the drive letter of my usb stick. I understand how to obtain the drive letter. What I don't understand is what bs=4M means.

As a last resort, I could follow the advice on the puppy forum and install pup to a cd before and then use the cd to install to a usb. But I'm cheap and don't want to waste a cd :)

There's a new update for flash plugin in Pisi, which I am now downloading.
11  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How to update Flash player in Pardus? on: April 28, 2011, 20:15:52 PM
I'm troubleshooting a graphics issue and am eliminating possibilities. Since upgrading to Pardus 2011, I have had intermittent but persistent problems with screen freezes. When this happens, Pardus does not respond to the usual keyboard solutions i.e. Ctrl + Alt + Del etc. and I must power off and reboot.

I have checked with the Adobe Flash versions checker at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and find I have an old version, 10.2.153.1. They recommend 10.2.159.1. 

I'm guessing that recent changes at Youtube require upgrading Flash for smooth viewing, as Youtube is constantly tinkering with the way things work at their site. Neither Flash nor Java provides timely support for Opera; and updates for Opera often lag. I have checked with the Java tester http://javatester.org/version.html  and find that my Java is currently up to date.

If it's not a Flash issue, the next possibility I plan to explore would be the nvidia driver for my Geforce 6150LE. I have had the issue discussed here http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3589.msg19448;boardseen#new and here http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3582.msg18891#msg18891 successfully applied the solutions offered here http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=16210#c12  and have blacklisted the nouveau driver. I have also disabled hardware acceleration in Flash.

I may need to tinker with my browser's Flash settings. I'm using opera 11.01.

I have successfully used this video card with Pardus in 2009-2009.2.

There were rare and minor issues with these versions of Pardus. Occasionally, when closing a program via the x button in the top right hand corner, kde would tell me that the programme had closed unexpectedly. This was amusing rather than annoying. Even more rarely, kde programmes would close unexpectedly. I figured this was a kde issue, an it did clear up with an update.

Another factor that may be complicating things is my mouse usb connector. I have had minor mouse issues across in both Vista and Linux - different issues with different mouses. My current mouse performs very well in Pardus but poorly in Vista (which I only use for playing Myst).

Any insight would be appreciated.

I need to update Flash but don't know how to do that in Pardus. I know very little about the command line in Linus; but, if the instructions are simple enough I'm sure I can manage. Thanks.

Opera is my primary browser. I've never had a problem logging in to Pardus Worldforum with it; although, I do seem to recall having had a problem with the password manager on the first few times. I had to type the password in by hand a few times by hand before it would work. that may have been a stupiduser issue, however.

I must be going blind in my old age! Thank you.

According to an old thread here  in the forum, Pardus was originally based loosely on Gentoo, but this basis was abandoned early on. Maybe there's a connection there somehow.
15  General / The Pub / Bug in there? on: March 19, 2011, 06:09:16 AM
Some weeks ago, I downloaded and installed Pardus Elegant Ksplash   1.0  KDE 4.x Splash Screen from kde-look.org http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?action=content&content=126105&PHPSESSID=b9c884be42f8434c55ac7d5f6b7c806e Not being a Turkish speaker, I have wondered what "icinde Pardus var" means. Today I looked it up on several online translation pages. Several translated as "bug in there", which can't be correct because Pardus does not mean bug. One page translated it as "Pardus in there", which sounds more reasonable. Another translated it as "Pardus over there", which sounds possible, but less likely.

Can anyone translate this short phrase for me?
