 I was afraid that was the link you were referring to, John.
It's pretty useless for me.
 I know my suggestion about a sub-forum on LinuxQuestions.org is not the best answer but I do feel it is a good one to start with. It would not really require anything from the Pardus devs except a request to have it set up and possibly a link to it from the Pardus homepage.
I'm sure user participation would suffice to keep it going.
I like the idea of it being in a general Linux community environment.

If something of this nature does not occur I may be forced to move to a different o/s with the hopes of continuing development. User base is almost as important as the basic platform. Other distros do not differ that much. I expected a quicker and more robust response to this matter already. It seems it's just not happening.

In another post I suggested the idea of a sub-forum at LinuxQuestions.org.
I still think this is a good idea. Spreading the word about Pardus is what will help the most once support is established. This site has thousands of visitors and I use it regularly.
Here is a page that tells how to get a sub-forum for Pardus on their site.
Here's a small excerpt from that page about this.
 "Politely email the (Pardus)distro makers and point out that LQ (LinuxQuestions) has over 250,000 members and that is firstly a lot of people who help with any support questions and secondly a good sized number of people to read any "new release" press releases they may write.
If you see any of the distro devs on an IRC channel, suggest they get in touch with Jeremy with a view to setting up a forum - point out the low overheads for them: we will do the moderating, Jeremy will set up the forum and all they need to do is turn up to answer questions
Point out that you and a number of other <Pardus distro> users are members here and you would love to be able to ask and answer questions on a dedicated forum."
 "It should be clearly noted though, that monetary support is not a requirement. In fact, LQ does not ask for monetary support and does not receive it from any of the distros who have sub-forums. What we need is for that distro maker to participate in some way in LQ and help maintain the level of activity in the forum."
 This is the page that I would like to see Pardus listed on.
Any thoughts on this from anyone?

What's the link to the English forum you're referring to John?
This is a VERY serious problem that needs to be worked out quickly if Pardus is to ever find a serious place in the English world.
 Right now Pardus sports several desirable characteristics that give it a real edge in the Linux world.
But if another English based distro should appear with similar advantages (and it will), Pardus will quickly lose the present opportunity it has to become a very popular distro. If this window of opportunity closes it will not be very easy for Pardus to catch back up. Pardus has a unique chance to become something more if it gets this right.
 Also, it's imperative that a "clean" presentation of the 2011 and Corporate 2011 versions be presented in this effort. There is simply too much overlap with the older versions and this causes frustration in searching for up to date info. While much of the old is still valuable it is not what new users want to wade through for answers. This applies especially to Pardus Wiki.
 This is simply my opinion and I realize the work that goes into such a task so please don't think that all of the hard work that is done now is taken for granted. I'm speaking as a general user (which most people would be) and not as real "Linux guru", but all of Linux in general will have to cater to this crowd if they are to ever rise very high amongst the general populace of the world.
4  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Flash plugin overlaps other windows on: August 03, 2011, 05:31:55 AM
Not sure if my experience will help or not. I'm running 2011.1 64bit

The first time I tried to run a flash movie in Firefox it wouldn't run. It said I needed a plugin update.
I had the latest stable plugin but found that there is an 11.0 beta plugin available but it's in a tar.gz package and I didn't install it. Here:http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11.html
 I rebooted Firefox and it started to play my flash movies fine. Huh?

 After reading your post I tried Konqueror and it did the same thing, wouldn't play, said I needed an update.
I went to Settings/Configure Konqueror/Plugins/the Plugins tab/Scan for plugins button. It ran a scan, I clicked on the flash movie once more and it played just fine. Guess it just had to locate the updated plugin.
Strange, I know. Just thought I'd share.
 Wish you the best.

Um, registration to this forum is actually disabled, how could it attract people?  Huh?

 I SO agree with this point!
I remember well when I first came here it was a real turn-off for me but I persisted and then ....waited.
NOT a very good first impression IMHO.

I would also like to see a sub-forum for Pardus added here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-distributions-5/.
There are a lot of viewers at the LinuxQuestions.org site and any exposure to Pardus will help to grow the community.
6  Assistance / Download/Repos / Re: Pardus 2011.1 repos on: July 18, 2011, 01:00:51 AM
It seems that repos for Pardus 2011.1 is different. Also, no community for 2011.1 exists so far. If you know of any please tell me.

OK, this is as near an answer to my question as I've seen. But I've not found a 2011.1 repo anywhere. With my upgrade, the "normal" repo as well as the pardususer.de repo remained as before the upgrade. If there is a 2011.1 repo that is distinct from 2011, I'd like to know where it is.


David, I'm using this for my 2011.1 "stable" repo.
I thought it was already included in the original package manager but I will see if I can find it in another place.
This one is for the 64 bit install. Do not use it if you installed the 32 bit.
I will see what i can find. i do know there are two different ones for certain.

Edit: O.K., I guess I might have got my link from the post above at this page.
Thanks, JohnA.
I use the "MyTranslator" add-on in Firefox to do a translation of the page if you think you need it.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

WRONG...scratch this...This is 2011 as well.  Undecided
Not sure how I came up with it but I'm looking for you.

As of this post I have 4,627 packages under "All Packages" tab with just the 2011.1 repo.
I have 4,777 packages when I add the 2011 "Dev" repo to the "stable".
This is in the 64 bit install. Do you have a package count close to this?
7  Assistance / Download/Repos / Re: Pardus 2011.1 repos on: July 17, 2011, 23:21:35 PM
I tried this repo (http://pakete.pardususer.de/pardus-2011/x86_64/pisi-index.xml.xz) to install "gpodder" which worked in the 2011, but it was missing a dependency (python-feed parser).
After you have added this source to your Package Manager, all dependencies are also taken care off.
And installing "gpodder-with-privacy" should not be a problem Wink

 Well, that's what I did but it didn't offer to download the needed dependencies.
After seeing your post I decided to try once more.
On my first attempt I removed the 2011.1 repo from the package manager and added the devel by itself.
Apparently, this was my problem because on my second attempt I left the 2011.1 repo in the list and added the devel along with it and it worked!  Shocked
Great to have this program back.
Thanks for your encouragement, Altoboo.

Maybe it's possible to use the community (Pardus Germany)  repo for version 2011.1 to?

 I tried this repo (http://pakete.pardususer.de/pardus-2011/x86_64/pisi-index.xml.xz) to install "gpodder" which worked in the 2011, but it was missing a dependency (python-feed parser).
 I want to attempt "google-earth" but will have to try later.
NO patience, I guess... Roll Eyes
Actually, I need to set up my Thunderbird email client first.

 Ooookkk....looks like there is going to be a little delay.
Guess I'll go ahead and install the stable 2011 64 bit and do an upgrade when it's ready.
I could do the beta but sometimes they change dramatically.
I've had some problems installing the beta on my machines anyway.

Thanks for the update, Altolboo!

 Any word on the 2011.1 being ready?
It's the 4th of July.
I am guessing it will just show up as an update on the main download page but it would be nice to know if it shows up somewhere else first.

So much disgust seems to be coming from folks over Unity that as a new Linux user I will not be trying out Ubuntu right now. It looks like the change will hurt Ubuntu in the short run for sure.
We are celebrating Independence Day in the U. S. (4th of July) and I have an extra day off from work. I was hoping to do an install of the new Pardus 2011.1 while I had some extra time off but since it won't be available till Monday I might try an install of Mint. A friend said he really liked it well.

JohnA, I found a couple links with helpful info for newbies like myself looking to learn more about Linux.
Might want to bookmark these for the next helpless newbie.  Roll Eyes
All of it free.
I'm liking this one pretty well. http://www.linux-tutorial.info/index.php
Several others are listed here. http://education-portal.com/articles/10_Sites_Offering_Free_Linux_Courses_Online.html
13  General / General topics / Re: Updated Pardus 2011-Now starts in command line. on: June 26, 2011, 07:54:36 AM
Thanks for the replies.
I used the "startx" that Altoboo suggested and it didn't work the first time but on my second attempt it worked great.
From error messages I was able to surmise a full disk error, which I don't understand. It shouldn't be full but I have not been able to prove this since I slowly lost my system while searching Dolphin to see what has caused the disk to fill up. It is possible because I am not running a very large partition (40 gig) and I did install a VM within that.
On subsequent reboot attempts I was unable to get it to load and I'm presently looking for a way to access my files so that I can delete some files and make some space.
 I have other Windows systems on this computer but have not found a way to access ext4 files from Windows except to "read" them. I'm out of time for working on it right now but will post as I make progress.
14  General / General topics / Updated Pardus 2011-Now starts in command line. on: June 25, 2011, 19:15:00 PM
I ran my all updates from package manager and now my when I boot up I get a command prompt.
What do I need to run to get into my GUI?
Hopefully I can go to system settings and reset the boot options.
I am able to login at the command prompt.

It's possible to write comments there. They are in 5 different sections:

Can be interesting to read what programs are included in the Pardus repository to. Smiley

 Now this is the kind of site that I find useful, John!
Don't know how I missed this post but glad to have found it.  Thanks for sharing.
