31  Assistance / Hardware / Re: wireless lost on reboot on: June 29, 2011, 17:38:38 PM
Thanks for pointing me to your thread. All my penguins except Pardus 2011 (and now 2011.1) connect to my hidden wireless network from this somewhat elderly HP Compaq V2000 series with the Air Force One wireless hardware (bcm4318). If I un-hide the network, the issue is solved, but, like you, I want to keep it hidden. I realize you are having problems with all but W7, which is mysterious.

Now, a complete surprise to me. The venerable Atolboo suggested to me and now has suggested to you placing a startup script in the Autostart folder inside /home. When I tried it back in March, it did not work. I just tried it again - and this time it worked. The wireless connection to my hidden network was established at boot. As I often quip, the problem back in March may have been "between the keyboard and the chair."

I hope that the script will solve your problem. It nevertheless seems that there is an issue between Pardus and hidden wireless networks. I will soon (probably not today) slip an old Netgear PCI wireless G card into my desktop machine running Pardus to see whether the connection is made to the network using other-than-HP hardware.

I've just appended this statement to bug #17248 to which I've received no response:

Much to my disappointment, the same issue confronts Pardus 2011.1 Beta. While I don't have to remove security on the router for Pardus to find the hidden wireless network, the connection is lost on reboot as before with Pardus 2011, and the iwconfig wlan0 command is required to re-establish the wireless connection.
33  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Samba won't start on: June 28, 2011, 17:51:31 PM
I thought it had to be running on both server and client. You may be correct, as the "top" command does not show it running on my Pardus machine. But my experience has been to connect to the shares only when samba-client/samba-common are installed and samba is running.

I'd welcome an education on this issue, but it's a sidebar to Cnaeus' problem. I'm having no trouble connecting to the server or to printers on the network (not connected to the server).

[edit] fixed a typo in the paragraph just above.

[edit] I installed Mandriva 2011 RC1 yesterday. It would not connect to the server until I installed samba-client and samba-common (+ cifs-utils, and maybe nss-wins). Pardus 2011 and above appears to have only samba-server, giving service to files on network machines while advertising the Pardus machine and its shared files.

[edit2] In direct contrast to Mandriva, I installed Fedora 15 Gnome from the live CD. I punched a hole in the firewall to allow networking, including samba, and was able to connect to the server shares -- without samba-client and samba-common on the Fedora side. So, atolboo, you appear to be correct and I incorrect about whether those two packages have to be running to connect to a server sharing files. Embarrassed

Explanation (no ssh or ftp):

I could not use Pardus if samba were not working, since I must have access to files from the server mounted on the local machine at boot. Here is a brief explanation of my system:

I have a server running FreeNAS. It is home to working files for my wife and me. (She used Windows until about 4 months ago, when I put Mint 10 on her machine.)

On this "client machine" running Pardus 2011.1 Beta, my workgroup is identified in /etc/samba/smb.conf (the only modification of smb.conf), and I have /etc/fstab statements to mount files residing on the server on this Pardus machine and my wife's Mint machine at boot. Those statements are modeled after this:

//serverIP/folder /mnt/folder cifs user=%,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

There are a couple of laptops here, one a MacBook Pro. The server files get mounted on all machines at boot.

Also the build and release number are very interesting to know, as these numbers vary between a Samba with and without problems. I expect the version to be the same.

Here you go:

# pisi info samba
Installed package:
Name                : samba, version: 3.5.8, release: 66

For what it's worth, I can confirm the same result from

service samba status

The only thing that may possibly be buggy is the lack of the word "running" in the command output after issuing

service samba on

Samba version 3.5.8 is working perfectly on my rig. I can see and change files and folders on my server from the Pardus machine.

37  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Reconfiguring networking from the beginning on: May 07, 2011, 16:43:36 PM

The naming of interfaces is controlled by /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

You can change the eth0, eth1, etc., but be sure to match with the proper MAC.

Hope this helps.

See Bug 16210, Comment 12 for an apparent solution:

39  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Nvidia driver on Pardus 2011 on: April 01, 2011, 05:28:03 AM
I'm seeing these short little lines blinking at the top also, but only noticeable when I have a window up that high and there's a bright background for the little lines to dance on.

I have an ATI 4650 Radeon PCI Express, using the proprietary driver, so this is not limited to nVidia.

I solved the issue with the procedure (as laid out by andyb above)
System Settings>Windows Behaviour>Screen Edges> De-select "Maximise windows by dragging to the top of the screen"  and "Tile windows by dragging them to the side of the screen"
but it's back after a few re-boots.

[Later] I returned to the System Settings routine, re-checked the two boxes, logged out and in, and the lines are gone for now. Go figure.
40  Assistance / Software / Re: Audacity is unstable on: March 31, 2011, 21:41:24 PM
I've switched to the proprietary driver for my ATI 4650 Radeon PCI Express card, and Audacity appears to be more stable than under the default driver. I did some recording and editing last night without any problems.
41  Assistance / Software / Audacity is unstable [Solved] on: March 28, 2011, 19:54:27 PM
I see one other user having trouble with audacity (importing mp4), but my issues are more comprehensive - if somewhat vague.

Audacity tends to lock/freeze and even make the entire system unresponsive. It is typical in my experience to stress the software with navigational clicks, track modifications (such as Effects --> Amplify), selection of a portion of a track for export, and/or repeated clicks of the arrow to advance a track in the window. Sometimes - perhaps most times - the software will thaw/unlock after a period of waiting . . . but other times, such as yesterday as I selected the entire 55 minute track, started the process of amplification, got up and walked away while that process was taking place, I returned to a completely unresponsive system. Fortunately, Audacity recovers tracks upon restart, so I didn't lose the music.

There are a three bug reports on Audacity, two of which are in Turkish, so I cannot tell whether this issue/these issues have been reported. I don't want to file a duplicate report, so am requesting some feedback here on the issues and the bug report(s).

....for over 1000 helpful and precious posts in this forum.

Also thank You for Your outstanding work in the wiki of Pardus and Your translations and and and  Grin

Please keep up the good work - we all can benefit from Your knowledge!


I agree with all of the above! Add my "voice" to the growing 
43  General / The Pub / Re: The first real review of OpenSuse 11.4 on: March 27, 2011, 20:27:43 PM
I've tried it, too. This release gave me networking problems (home server). With every other distro, putting mount statements in fstab gave me access, but this one gives only an error message derived from the recent changes in samba denying access to all but root. The deeper I delved into Yast2, the more I realized I would need a computer science degree to fix that issue. I looked on their forum, saw others with the issue but without solution, and shelved it. I really like KDE4.6 (now 4.6.1), but shares are more important.

And obviously a spirit of humility pervades this piece of teamwork -- pretty rare, not to mention refreshing!! Thank you for responding to my prior silent frustration by taking on this little project. We'll all benefit from it, and I'm sitting here this Sunday morning rather amazed ... again ... and glad I tried Pardus 2011 a little more than a month ago, where users make a difference.

Noisy, extended applause indeed to you and to Atolboo for all of your contributions. And again, "What a community!"

And, inspiried by atolboo's applause smiley:

45  General / Wish list / Re: CD/DVD labeling program on: March 27, 2011, 00:43:13 AM

Made my day! Thanks very much for glabels. gscan2pdf yesterday, glabels today ... now I'm going to have to think really hard to come up with something Pardus lacks. My head hurts already!!  Wink

Wow! What a community. SW, thanks for the note.
