Wow - seems more complicated than I thought.

Thanks for all the replies - rather too many to quote.

Ok, points taken - I shall stop my cavalier shutdowns. Grin

It freezes and is not at all responsive so I can't use a terminal; however I did try the shutdown command before shutting down but it didn't work. Also tried the raising elephants..... but no joy.

So what I did was press the Restart button and, guess what? It actually did shut down, light went off but it immediately opened again.

What I can do until I find the answer is to restart into Windows or Pclos and then shutdown from there. A bit roundabout but worth it if hard shutdowns are risky.

I did think of downloading a pae kernel from Pclos and trying to use that in Pardus. That cured the problem in that Pclos. Would that be doable?

Maybe the next trick (up to now for older mobo's) does solve this Huh?
System Settings > Boot Manager > Edit > add to Boot Options
Code:
acpi=force
And restart to become active.
If not successful, remove the added option again.

just a tip: powering off a computer the hard way, pressing power off till it stops, can and often will damage your hard disk drive...
so i discovered with my notebook (500gb@7200rpm is making funny clicking and ziiiiiiiiiiiii-noises now).  Sad

atolboo -my mobo would be getting on a bit now but forcing acpi didn't work unfortunately.


Thanks for that owiknowi- that's new to me. So now I pull the plug from the computer and then replace it. Hope that isn't screwing anything. Huh?

I've managed to fix it thanks to all your suggestions.

I logged into Minime, opened up Konqueror as root and Dolphin. I then opened Pardus in Konqueror and Minime in Dolphin. And that did the trick. Should have thought of that but that's the way it goes with computers sometimes - something looks difficult then up comes a simple solution. Frustrating but very satisfying.

Thanks again chaps

Maurice

Hi Maurice ,
Question, how old is your PcLinux?
I ask because I've seen where similar filesystem in different distos are at different stages of development, and not always readable between.
Pclos is a rolling release OS rather like Pardus and a user would update it every 2 weeks or so. I have always kept it fully updated and, from time to time, reinstalled. The actual version I have is PcLinuxos Minime 2011.2, which is a cut down version with a minimum of programs. But, it is right up to date. In fact its Firefox is later than the one in Pardus.

Which motherboard/computer are you using Huh?

Custom built - Intel 06600 cpu quad-core, 4gb ram, Nvidia  8600GT (512mb)gcard, SATA 500gb hard drive, 22" AOC lcd.

With breaking open the case I don't know what the motherboard is. Huh?

Edit - Without breaking open the case. Duh

Perhaps you have the PCLinux partition password protected or encrypted?

I suspect the issue revolves somewhere around this issue or something similar.  Windows isn'r a vewry secure system by default, especially when compared to Linux; one of the reasons why viruses and hacking is so common in WindowsWorld.

...... I try to extract anything from PcLinuxOS I get the error message " Could not enter folder /media/....".
This probably has to do with the way the properties and file permissions are set in PcLinuxOS.
Set/check them in PcLinuxOS to the wanted values.

Thanks Mark and atolboo. I tried various settings that I thought might be the cause but nothing worked. However you have given me an idea where to look.

I have been with Pclos for 4 years and have lots of files I would like to transfer. It is an excellent OS in almost all respects but Pardus has the edge. That they share the same Forum system is an extra bonus.

This guide is about a dual boot:
http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/04/14/how-to-dual-boot-pardus-2011-and-windows-7/

But maybe it can give some help anyway.

Thanks John. Some quite good articles on that site on dual booting but they do not go beyond the actual setting up.

I have Pardus, Windows XP and PcLinuxOS triple booted. If I am in Pardus I am able to extract docs from Window but when I try to extract anything from PcLinuxOS I get the error message " Could not enter folder /media/....".

Is there a way to get stuff from another OS?

Thanks for any help

I had this problem with PcLinuxOS and it was solved, oddly enough, by changing the kernel to a pae one. (or it may have been a bfs - so long ago now I've forgotten which) but whichever, it did the trick and the shutting down problem was solved

A search for a similar kernel on Pardus came up blank.

Is there another simpler way to fix this?

Thanks for any help.

Perhaps you could elucidate. Huh?

This is as clear as I can make it from a distance. Cheesy

Duh.  You made it very clear.

That was a bit syupid of me - on my first post too. I hang my head in shame. Roll Eyes

It worked, of course.  Thanks a lot atolboo - the SOLVED still stands.

Hope you're still around because I have the same problem and I'm not sure what you mean by

Maybe a temporary removal of the complete connection entry in Network Manager will do the trick

Perhaps you could elucidate. Huh?

Many thanks
Maurice
