1  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Problems Running VMware on: January 05, 2011, 13:21:09 PM
Playing around on my exrenal hard drive it appears the problem is un-installing VMWorkstation.
Going on the VMware site the only solution I can finf is this:-

Note: Log on to the host to the root account to execute the Terminal commands in this article. If running Ubuntu, the root account is not available by default. Prepend all commands with sudo or switch to the root using the command:

sudo su -

Warning: This command provides unrestricted access to the operating system. It is possible to cause damage the system when using this access level.

   1.
      Open a command prompt. For more information, see Opening a command or shell prompt (1003892). Type the commands as indicated in the following steps.
   2.
      Shutdown all VMware applications and services.

      /etc/init.d/vmware stop

   3.
      Verify that all processes have stopped:

      lsmod | grep vm

      Note: A zero must be listed beside VMware related modules to indicate that they are no longer running.

   4.
      Move the VMware libraries to the /tmp directory:

      cd /lib/modules/<kernel_version>/misc
      mv vm* /tmp

      Note: If the kernel has ever been updated you must check and move the files from multiple paths. Substitute the kernel version where indicated above.

   5.
      Unload the kernel modules:

      rmmod vmnet.o
      rmmod vmmon.o
      rmmod vmci.o
      rmmod vmblock.o
      rmmod vmppuser.o

   6.
      Remove the VMware startup scripts:

      RedHat and Most Distributions
      rm /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc2.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc3.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc5.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc6.d/*vmware

      Ubuntu
      rm /etc/rc2.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc3.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc5.d/*vmware
      rm /etc/rc6.d/*vmware

      Note: If you are using a different Linux distribution, substitute the correct path in above commands.

   7.
      Remove the remaining VMware files and directories:

      rm -rf /etc/vmware*
      rm /usr/bin/vmware*
      rm /usr/bin/vmnet*
      rm -r /usr/lib/vmware-installer
      rm -r /usr/lib/vmware-vix 
      rm -r /usr/lib/vmware
      rm -r /usr/share/doc/vmware

   8.
      If an RPM package was used to install the VMware product, complete these steps to delete the RPM database entry:

      rpm -qa | grep VMware

      A list of VMware packages is presented. Copy the exact package name for the next step and paste it into the command where indicated.

   9.
      Remove the VMware packages:

      rpm --erase --nodeps <VMware_Package_Name>

Allthough this doesn't seem to work  Huh?
2  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Problems Running VMware on: January 05, 2011, 10:21:41 AM
I've been running VMPlayer 3.1 with no problems, I decided to try the Workstation version . having installed it I decided it wasn't worth the money so got rid of it.
I deleted (I think) all the files in"ect" on vmware and did a new install.
Now it won't run!!!

When I start VMplayer and click on "Play Virtual Machine" nothing happens
but I noticed that the verson is given as "Workstation 6.5-7.x virtual machine" Huh?
One thought came to mind- part of the new installation is "sudo mkdir /etc/rc{0..6}.d"
Now when I did the new installation I'm told "these files allready exist"
Could thes files have been altered by the Workststion version? if so how do I remove them?

 I have also tried to create a new virtual machine and I get the message
"Unable to create a new virtual machine: No permission to perform this operation" Huh?

Any ideas please

9  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Swap Partition Size ? on: December 28, 2010, 11:27:17 AM
I recently experimented  (unsuccsessfully) with the Beta version of Pardus, I have now reinstalled 2009.2.
However I have been left with the disk partitoned as follows-:

Root    -      16.39 GiB

Swap   -        7.81 MiB

Home  - remainder

So - My question is

1) Do I need a swap partition  (I have 2 Gib of Ram) ?
2) If I need it should it be as big as the Ram ?
3) If I have to alter it can I do so without losing any files ?
4) Should I Increase the Root size ?

10  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Missing KDE Text Editor (SOLVED) on: December 28, 2010, 11:11:17 AM
With the help of my friend atolboo I have just re installed Pardus - BUT Tried to use KWtite and get the message "A KDE text-editor compnent could not be found. Please check your KDE installation"
How do I do this please?

Or try (if possible) another CD reader.
(most of the problems are caused by a combination of medium and reader)
Or try (if computer can start from USB) Installing Pardus 2008/2009 on a Netbook.

Well my friend, thank you for all your help.Looking through your replies I thought about the above.

The above I think was the problem.

I downloaded the iso again , burnt it and it installed first time and a very interesting thing happened.
I installed PCLiuxOS into the "root" partition and assumed it had over written the Pardus files but it had'nt ! My desktop reappeared exactly as it was!!

Anyway once again thanks for your help.

12  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Cannot re-install Pardus !!! Heeeeeeelp! on: December 27, 2010, 19:52:20 PM
Which PCLinuxOS version are you using Huh?
When you said that I realized that my version was very old- so downloaded and installed the latest version.
Ran ./mandriva-seed.sh. Loads OK but when I click on "browse" it shuts down  :'(
13  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Cannot re-install Pardus !!! Heeeeeeelp! on: December 27, 2010, 17:08:31 PM
Well My good friend , I downloaded ./mandriva-seed.sh.
But When I try to run it I get- "Could not open the file /home/john/Downloads/mandriva-seed.sh using the Unicode (UTF-8) character encoding." Roll Eyes

OK I've come to a grinding halt.
A little more information. To enable me to have a running computer
I installed PCLinuxOS into the root partition of my hard drive. (Leaving My home partition intact)

Now I have a running computer.
Looking at the Wiki I opted for  - Method 3 (for Linux users)
So (1) I downloaded Pardus-International-2009.2-Geronticus-eremita.iso to My Desktop.
      (2) I then entered this - ls -la /dev/disk/by-id/usb-* into Gnome Terminal

and this is where I come unstuck-    as per the Wiki I entered- ls Desktop/Pardus-International-2009.2-Geronticus-eremita.iso
and I get "No such file or directory"

Need more help please.
