Ok after this screenshot I had to buy an external CD romdrive. Can you upload the wallpaper you use? It looks great!!

it can be found here;


It is not identical though.  The archive includes the gimp fle, so you can edit to look the same.  For my eee I removed the bar accross the centre and added the Pardus text.  You may need to resize it.  If you cannot be bothered then I can upload the eee sized wallpaper Tongue

How did you d otuxedup it with Grub? Does grub give errors when you switch sd card?

I am not  entireley sure what you mean, sorry.  My exact setup is as follows,

Pardus installed to 8GB SD card using cdrom drive.
Pardus installed grub to SD card.
Built in SD I have reformated to ext3.  I use this as an extra /home/ space

You could keep xandros installed to to internal drive if you chose to and keep grub there.  But also have grub installed to Pardus SD card.  At boot press Esc and you are presented with a boot list.  If you want xandros let the machine boot normally.  If you want Pardus press Esc and select the SD card to boot.

In regards to grub I have no problems as I install grub to Pardus SD card.

Basically as long as you install grub to Pardus SD card you have absolutely no problems.

 m machine runs fine.  I am posting this from my eee right now.

Maybe I should buy an external CD drive...
I want a blank fresh Pardus install image so I can put in on the site for people to download, just as they did with Breezy.
By the way do the FN bottons work (volume etc)?

Kind of.  The brightness keys work correctly.  As does the sleep button.  The voe  do not work, nor does the wireless key (although it worked in 2007 strange).  For the rest of the fn keys to work the custom Asus Eee acpi module must be compiled (it is not in the repos).  I am lazy and cannot be bothered, so I just mapped volume to ctrl+alt+down/up.

I bought my External cdrom drive from Ebay.  I pai £14.00, it is just a straight cdrom drive, not a dvdrom.

What is the screen resolution for the eee and how do you make it fit Pardus?
is it just a quesiton of running Kaptan or do you have to tweak the xorg.conf?

The installation is a problem in 2008.  The installer is not designed for such small screens.  The problem is that the buttons along the bottom are not visable, so to navigate it takes a little patiance and trial.  I usualy press Tab a few times until I work out where the'next' button is.

After install the resolution is fine.  Pardus uses the correct resolution, no changes need to be made to xorg.conf.  It works fine out of the box.

A word of warning though.  If you intend for Pardus to be usable, do not install to the 4GB internal drive as it is useless, once you update the repositories it uses all space and kde will not even start.  I bought an 8GB SDHC card from Ebay for about £17.99.

Willem I will try to make a backup for you.  It will be big though as I have installed gcc etc.

On my Eee,I just used the simple method.  I bought an 8GB SD card and installed to the SD card leaving the internal storage intact.

I know it is not the most ideal method for the Eee, but it works.

Hello Micheal,

I wonder how many British people use Pardus? Make yourselves known Grin

Good to know I'm not here on my own.

All the best,

Tony (Duxford, UK)

No Idea, but I know there are not that many non-turkish devs Smiley
52  General / Tips and tricks / Re: Mplayer in English on: July 22, 2008, 15:22:53 PM
To get around the problem of the mplyer-gui being in Turkish I  packaged for Smplayer in contrib.  Perhaps people may wish to try this also.

As far as I know the reason why Mplayer-gui is in turkish is due to some limitation of how mplayer-  is coded.  It does not have very good multi language support.

Hello Tony,

Welcome from a fellow Brit.
54  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Pardus 2008, cpu fan is always on on: July 22, 2008, 15:09:18 PM
Sometimes (depending on your laptop) Pardus does not seem to detect that Cpu Frequency scaling is available by that processor.  In these cases you have to manually tell Pardus to load the correct cpu frequency scaling modules.

On my machine I have to add p4_clockmod and cpufreq_powersave


then cpu frequency scaling works.

What processor do you have in your machines?  We can then tell you the appropriate modules to load to test.  In my case I am using Intel Celeron M processors.
55  General / General topics / Re: Why does Pardus constantly stall and freezes? on: July 18, 2008, 12:48:04 PM
The laptop freeze may be associated with a problem with the touch pad.  On my laptop there appears to be a kernel / xorg bug that causes the touch pad to lose sync and causes the system to freeze for long periods.  I found in this case that using an external mouse was a work around.  I have posted my bug  to bugzilla but no replies as yet.

56  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: How to change Pardus menue icon/picture on: July 18, 2008, 12:42:27 PM
The colour of the Pardus text is determined by your current colour scheme (I think).  So in almost all cases the text will appear white.

57  Assistance / Software / Re: Problem with Compiz-Fusion (Pardus 2008) and Intel Chipset 915 GMA on: July 08, 2008, 10:51:23 AM
For Intel chipsets, you need only Option "AccelMethod" "XAA" line in xorg.conf
file. Than you will be able to use compiz-fusion.

Taken from a bug report I posted;


I was experiancing the same problem.  I have not tried this out yet as I have xorg problem of my own.

I suffer the same problem.  To fix the issue (which requires the removal of compiz-fusion).

Reboot the machine, at kdm login presss ctrl+alt+f1
enter sudo pisi rm pyrex sexy-python compiz-fusion
enter yes

now reboot and the desktop should come back.
59  General / Website building / website suggestions on: April 05, 2007, 23:14:53 PM

At present I have a webblog (www.tuxedup.wordpress.com) which was centred mainly around debian.  However after all the mess debian is in, I moved to pardus and now do the occasional packaging for contrib.

Anyway, I am going to be setting up my own real website with php support soon, I currently have draft versions created with nvu, but I am writing it again from scratch with xhtml and css and I am looking for features I could include.

The majority of the content will be pardus related e.g. guides and tutorials and things, but I will also be offering a small set of packages in the future.

In addition I plan to offer video tutorials for introductory topis e.g. using the package manager etc (assuming that demand does not consume all of my bandwidth for the month),  I will also have a simple php image gallery.

Are there any other features I could include on the site, please dont suggest articles, just featurs that would be useful.  Please note I do not have database support on this hosting as I cannot afford the next package up.

So if you have a suggestion, then please post.
