1  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Multiboot without disturbing other distros? on: October 23, 2010, 13:57:03 PM
It installed okay, although the installer hung the first time as soon as it started to unpack files. I ran it a second time and no probs at all. The hardware detection went well, it didn't miss a beat. However it is giving me a little trouble with compositing. Say's its too slow and turns it off.

Currently PCLOS KDE 4.5.2/kernel 2.6.33.5.bfs.1 and Fedora 14beta KDE 4.5.2/kernel 2.6.35.6-46 both composite very well with functionality checks enabled. I am using an Intel 82G33 on an ASUS Benecia which is normally very Linux friendly and has always provided decent accelerated 3d for KDE4.x and Gnome/Compiz. I'm thinking it's a kernel thing.

Everything else is running quite well but the compositing issue is kind of a show stopper for me, so I think I'll wait for a few more updates and see what happens.

To start ........... and 

Will the Pardus 2011b installer allow me to take the appropriate measures?
Yes. (< this a short answer)

Figured I could save myself some time and trouble by asking people who know the Pardus installer a lot better.
Any help will be met with gratitude! Thank you. 
I will try.......
In screen "Add Users" > select Advanced for UID and more....
In screen "Partition" > select "create Custom Layout" > etc...
(see also this remark about this Beta GUI compared to the P2009.2 GUI)
In screen "Configure Bootloader" > Advanced settings > select the partition where Pardus is installed.

I hope this short manual will answer your questions. Wink
But remember: This is only a Beta version and will show some problems.


Thanks for the reply! I think I'll take it for a spin.
Betas aren't a prob. It won't be the only OS on board so if something is broken or breaks down the line, I'm covered. I just wanted to try something new that wasn't a fork of a respin of a fork, or something like that Tongue lol.
I'll check it out. Thanks again!

Greetings, I'm a semi-new but relatively adept Linux user. I have spent a lot of time distro hopping already and have developed a couple of favorites over the last few months.
Anyway, I've been hearing a lot of really good things about Pardus and have been wanting to try out and possibly adopt another KDE 4.5.x based distro. After reading the package list on Distro Watch, Pardus 2011b looks very intriguing. But, I need to find out if it can fit into my current setup without disturbing my three main distros which are very sweet setups.
My hard drive is already partitioned into 5 sets of / and /home with a couple of large shared data partitions(one primary, one extended containing a bunch of logical, I already have 5 working distros and wish to replace one of them with Pardus)
A more specific example would be - I would like to install Pardus to sda11 / and sda12 /home and install the bootloader to sda11 so I can chain load from grub2. I also need to make sure my UID ends up as 1000 - after which creating my mount directories and adding the UUIDs of my shared data partitions to fstab to keep it all seamless.
