1  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Strange monitor behaviour with Nouveau driver Pardus 2012.2 on: March 27, 2012, 22:23:46 PM
Did an install of Pardus 2012.2 on an old PC with a GeForce4 MX 440 video card installed. When the Nouveau driver is in use, the monitor (Iiyama CRT) flashes off (for about 2 seconds) and on again every 30 seconds. Can't find anything useful about this using google so just wondered if anyone has any idea what might cause this behaviour?

I'm not sure if this is useful, but you could try power cycling (or running the auto-sync option in the menu since it's an analogue output) the monitor after the system has come up (or not turning it on until the login screen has has time to appear). On one system I have to do that to prevent a similar flashing -- however the hardware is not comparable (Intel graphics, LCD monitor with DVI connection -- but it is Pardus 2012.2), but it might be worth trying.

If you're really not getting any EDID info, then you could try giving explicit resolutions in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (however the only time I've encountered a true no-EDID monitor is on an old G3 iBook where Apple presumably couldn't be bothered to connect the necessary wires since they have a table of the capabilites based on the laptop model number).

Thanks for the suggestions James. Tried the auto-sync option and waiting for the login screen until turning the monitor on, but no difference. I'll just stick with the Nvidia driver.

Cheers.

Thanks for the replies, atolboo and Anglo.

Just to be clear, there was no "Out of Range" message with the Nouveau driver, just the periodic flashing.

I found another video card, a GeForce2 MX/MX 400 and tried that.

With the Nouveau driver there is still a flashing every 30 seconds, but instead of the screen going completely black some white horizontal lines flash at the bottom of the screen.

With the Nvidia driver there is now no "Out of Range" warning message whilst booting up. The only thing that's not quite right is a small oblong at the top left corner of the screen that does not draw, ie. it is always black.

dmesg returns the same output for both these cards:

Code:
dmesg |tail
[...]
[ 471.465731] nouveau 0000:03:00.0: VGA-1: EDID block 0 invalid.
[  471.465740] [drm] nouveau 0000:03:00.0: DDC responded, but no EDID for VGA-1
[  471.483319] [drm] nouveau 0000:03:00.0: Load detected on head A

There is no noticable performance difference between these two cards so I'll leave this GeForce2 MX/MX 400 in the machine. This is on my Mums machine because she wants to try Linux and she has a flat screen monitor that will be used when I take the machine back to her, so no big deal about this. I was just curious about why the Nouveau driver wasn't working properly with the video card.

This doesn't occour when using the Nvidia driver, but whilst booting up there is a message:

Attention
Out of Range
H: 29.7 KHZ V: 36.9HZ

displayed until the logon screen is reached. The monitor works ok after that. Any ideas about this too?

Thanks.

Tried both sites in Firefox and Chromium with the same results as csaenemy. There are some javascript errors on the first site so that's probably what's causing the problem there. Can't see any problems on the second site though, so it should be working as long as you've got JS enabled for forvo.com.

6  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Problem with Upgrade Manager - P2009.2 on: January 24, 2012, 20:18:34 PM
To be honest, I don't think anyone can help now because

I have a system image so I can put everything back to how it was before if I want to,  or I'll do a clean install of 2011.2, just keeping my home partition as it is.

This is what I know and maybe will be of any help.

In P2009 your personal settings are in /home/username/.kde4
In P2011 they are in /home/username/.kde

And to get all my Kmail messages and etc. back, I replaced the directory /home/username/.kde/share/apps/kmail with a symlink:
Code:
atolboo@pardus2011 ~ $ ls -l /home/username/.kde/share/apps/kmail
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 18 dec 15:36 /home/username/.kde/share/apps/kmail -> /home/username/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/
(I have replaced [my username] with  [username]

And the addressbook is in /share/apps/kabc

Thanks atolboo,

That's useful to know. I would have left my personal settings where they are now and then be wondering why they weren't being found.

Cheers.

I tried using yahoo advanced search to find that comar error, but didn't come up with anything, but I suspect it is a python error which goes back to this conflict:

[python-qt-webkit conflicts with: PyQt release <= 42]

I have Pardus 2011.2 with testing repo and it is using python-qt and python-qt-webkit versions 4.8.4 release 57. 

If I were you, I would do:
Code:
pisi it --reinstall python-qt python-qt-webkit
before doing the mass install of packages, and if it says it needs extra dependencies for that action, let it get them too and then do the remaining packages.  Just guessing.  Undecided


Thanks Lisa, but I couldn't do that. There's no gap in the process to allow it and pisi seemed to take care of that by itself. I think the script error was perhaps referring to the libuuid package but what it meant is anybodies guess.  Huh? What I decided to do was to replace P2009.2 with my backup image, uninstall the two broadcom wireless packages to eliminate that conflict and then try again with Upgrade Manager. This time, it downloaded and installed the packages and all went well untill right near the end of the process when everything was being configured and then the system abruptly rebooted. Saw some errors, then Plymouth came up and I saw another error about not being able to locate the logon splash theme. Clicked past that and got a text logon prompt. Logged into my account and tried:

Code:
startx

Xserver loads, then the splash with the icons appearing and then the system kicks me out to a text screen again with several screens full of errors mentioning dbus, akonadi and lots more. Seems that the configuring in the upgrade process had not compleated, there must have been another error of some sort and that left the system broken. Oh well, it very nearly worked . Sad

Going to have to do a clean install of P2011.2 (just the system partition) and see how that works out.

Hi airtight,
I won't be of much help as I've never tried to do an upgrade via the package manager. 
Can you list your repositories?
Code:
pisi lr

Hi Lisa,

To be honest, I don't think anyone can help now because pisi is broken and neither Package Manager nor Update Manager will run now. This what pisi returns:

http://pastebin.com/6HCEsrvL

The repository being used is the stable 2011 repo but as you can see from what pisi returned, the system seems well and truly broken. Maybe I made a mistake and once I had the wireless dependencies sorted out I should have used Update Manager to carry on with the process. It's hard to know because I don't know what this:

Code:
Script error: tr.org.pardus.comar.ImportError: No module named select

means.

I have a system image so I can put everything back to how it was before if I want to,  or I'll do a clean install of 2011.2, just keeping my home partition as it is. I really wish the upgrade had worked though, it would have saved me from having to reinstall quite a few programs that are not in the repo and also I may need to customise everything again to get it back to how I like it. Maybe it won't be as troublesome as I imagine though, I'll have to see.

If anyone knows what that script error means, I'd be interested to know.

Thanks Lisa.

Right, realised that the wireless modules were already installed so removed the broadcom modules and tried again with pisi. This time no conflicts with wireless modules, just:

Code:
[python-qt-webkit conflicts with: PyQt release <= 42]

which pisi offered to sort out so I said 'yes' and the upgrade is under way...
11  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Problem with Upgrade Manager - P2009.2 on: January 23, 2012, 01:06:06 AM
Noticed that the 2011 repo is now in Package Manager so tried to upgrade using pisi. Got this error:

Code:
Selected packages [module-compat-wireless module-broadcom-wl ] are in conflict with each other.

Can't see how to exclude a package with pisi so back to Package Manager and uncheck module-broadcom-wl and its userspace from the upgrade list and continue, but module-broadcom-wl appears in the dependency list.

Unchecked module-compat-wireless and its userspace package from the list of upgrades as well but module-broadcom-wl still appears in the dependency list and there's no way to de-select it.

Try to carry on with the upgrade anyway and get the same error about module-compat-wireless and module-broadcom-wl being in conflict with each other even though non of the wiress modules are selected.

I'm trying to upgrade Pardus 2009.2 to 2011.2 using the Upgrade Manager. It rebuilds the Package DB and checks for dependencies and then I get an error (see attachment).

I've tried a few times over the last couple of months and always get the same error. Is there anything I can do to get this to work?

Guys, you should take a look at this; http://www.ozgurlukicin.com/forum/haberler/23880/

Ozgurlukicin forum decided to track the transformation process of Pardus. So this thread was opened. This thread also aims to stop rumors among community and give better & healthier information.

You will see the English translation of the news given by Ozgurlukicin moderators at the end of 1st entry.

Thanks a lot for this information! Much appreciated.
14  Assistance / Software / Re: Saving Settings in VLC Media Player on: January 04, 2012, 18:36:21 PM
Using 'Show Enhanced Settings' I sharpen my vids under 'video effects' but I don't seem to be able to make the changes permanent.

How can I do this?

To be able to save the settings you need to make the adjustment in Tools > Preferences. At the bottom of that window, select 'All'. Then click the little icon to the left of Video > Filters which will drop down the list of things you can alter. Select 'Sharpen', make your adjustment and Save.

The adjustment control here is different to the way it's done in the menu that you used so I'm not sure if it does the exact same thing. Both are called Sharpen though, so you would think it would be the same.

Then click on the word 'Filters' and select the 'Sharpen video filter' and save again to (presumably) activate the sharpen filter with the adjustment you made.

Anyway, seems to me that's what's needed to make the adjustment permanent.

15  Assistance / Software / Re: No version of 'locate' in Pardus 2011.1 (Solved) on: September 24, 2011, 00:57:05 AM
Strange that they left P2011.1 without any version of locate at all. It's not exactly a new program.
Maybe it's a matter of human resources.
And if you can't wait: goto http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/testing/ (i686 or x86_64) and from there you can install it by selecting the appropriate package.
This as easy as life can be at this moment Wink

Thanks a lot. Got it installed but updatedb -U doesn't work, says it requires an argument but I don't know what to put. Any ideas?

Ok, I got it now. In this version the command is:

Code:
updatedb -U /
