1  Assistance / Software / ICA Client on: April 17, 2007, 10:35:53 AM

on the other hand it is also quite easy using the citrix JAVA client. I have been testing this on arch64 where I also couldn't get the ICA client installed and the JAVA client seems to be working fine out of the box.

You can get this client from the citrix site and just have to edit the <client>.html in examples to suit your configuration.

i got ICA10 running smoothly on pardus2007.1

I just downloaded and comlied openmotif from source: http://ftp.motifzone.com/om2.2.3/src/
actually it is just the libXm.so.3 file in /usr/lib thatis really important,

the linuxx.tar.gz containing the ica client: www.citric.com

. When i ran setuwfc as root everything went perfectly. it even integrated with KDE.

It is too bad that openmotif and ICA are not in the repositories.

3  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / installed Pardus 2k7.1: some important questions! on: March 19, 2007, 22:19:35 PM

I didn't know you could use beryl without aiglx... I don't own a Nvidia, sorry  :wink:
But you shouldn't have many problems, since nvidia drivers does all the work... so if you install it right, it should work  Cheesy

actually it works perfectly without aiglx/xgl. It just SUCKS that i have to build beryl from svn source. Are there any plans on integrating beryl into pardus and creating menu items for it?

it really works great with nvidia, way better than with ati/xgl/aiglx. i just build it with a "makeall"  and gave these commands:

nvidia-xconfig --composite
nvidia-xconfig --allow-glx-with-composite
nvidia-xconfig --render-accel
nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals

and added an:
Option "NoLogo" "True"
to xorg.conf to get rid of the irritating startup logo

then just:

and we're in business, on my geforce4 6200 it works like a charm. with xgl it gives me a load of +3, now it is just 0.48

if anyone can help me with the rest of the q's that would be great.

1) I guess you should check Suse documentation, since they created it
3) As long as beryl it's in the unofficial repositories it won't update automatically. but it's a quite easy operation nevertheless.
For the use of beryl without aiglx or xgl, it's not possible. I think Suse does all the necessary configuration for aiglx automatically, so the user thinks it doesn't need anything

thanks. I can't find anything related to the kickoff size in any documentation, however on all distro's it is Way too big in 1024x768 (half the screensize)

it really should be possible to run beryl without aiglx/xgl:

i will try the nvidia-xconfig commands myself and make beryl from svn wuthout aiglx and report back then.

pardus 2007.1 is out, try it and I'm sure you'll not go back to other distros :wink:

thanks for your reply! however I am already running pardus 2007.1 and this does not answer any of my currently open questions.

As i stated before I am quite content with pardus and 2007.1 does not change this (although it is not a HUGE improvement over 2007, it is just as stable and fast for me).

The only things I am missing are my open questions and maybe more packages/configuration. The latest and greatest binary video drivers are already installed, it would be nice to have beryl 0.2.0 available from the configuration, etc.

anyone with some more information?

I like parsus so far but the documentation/information/forum activity is somewhat sparse. I like the fact that it "just works" but am also one who likes to play around a bit (on the CLI).

I'm also trying out sabayon 3.3 at the moment and that seems okay too, although imho the update/compile/package software is sooooooooo slow and cumbersome that i probably won't stick with it, it takes Ages to check dependencies en install/upgrade packages on sabayon.
7  Assistance / Hardware / Newby Problem with SoundCard (Pardus 2007.1 RC1) on: March 13, 2007, 09:26:36 AM
I too had this problem, albeit on another pc with another soundcard. It was indeed solved by messing with kmix and running alsaconf.

But why is pardus the only distro that goes about this in the really strange manner? On all other kde based (and gnome for that matter) distros sound "just works", like mepis, kubuntu, opensuse, etc. I never even new of the existence of alsaconf let alone messing with the defaults in kmix.

this is no pardus bashing because in other ways i prefer pardus to the others, i just think this is really strange, especially when I plug in my usb webcam as well, then pardus thinks it is a new (primary) sounddevice and sound will be broken again (and my webcam will be always on).

8  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / installed Pardus 2k7.1: some important questions! on: March 13, 2007, 09:14:48 AM

i recently switched my home pc from MEPIS 6.5 to pardus 2007 and have some questions about this otherwise excellent distro. If anyone can help that would be just great.

1) I really like the OpenSuse KICKOFF menu, but compared to my "tiny" 3/4 sized taskbar it is HUGE. is there any way to downsize the kickoff menu? i prefer NOT to switch back to the classic menu.

2) when I install Beryl from the WIKI howto, is this just a "one-time-event" or will it be added to and updated by the package manager just like it would with apt-get? Is there already a way to install beryl 0.2.0?

3) I use pardus for my home desktop but it looks really promising. For my Work desktop I currently use Opensuse 10.2 for its good Windows integration. Can Pardus replace this as well, are there professional tools available, ie: citrix ica 10, AD integration, wireshark, kwallet, etc.? I really prefer to install software to package managers channels next to compiling it myself.

*THANKS*) Can anyone explain how the pardus init system compares to feisty's upstart in terms of speed and functionality?

*THANKS*) is it correct the there are hardly any updates for pardus? if this means that there are no problems that is allright, but for opensuse and ubuntu I almost get daily updates and for pardus none after the first batch right after install

*THANKS*) is there an ETA for pardus 2007.1? How can I upgrade to this version or would it be better to just do a clean install?

7) can i run beryl on native nvidia without aiglx or glx. i ran it this way on opensuse and i have a feeling it was somewhat faster.

answers to any or all of these questions would be appreciated.
keep up the good work on this excellent distro.

9  Assistance / Hardware / pardus 2007: No Sound onboard intel soundmax! HELP! on: March 05, 2007, 20:28:32 PM

alsaconfig did the trick! sound is working fine now.
thanks a lot. It is a bit strange it didn't work automatically but I'm glad it did eventually.

Now I will keep testing pardus, I did have to manually edit the xorg.conf to get resolution>800*600, is that normal behaviour?

thanks again!
10  Assistance / Hardware / pardus 2007: No Sound onboard intel soundmax! HELP! on: March 05, 2007, 10:37:36 AM
Hi all.

i am currently looking for a new desktop distro. I have tried Opensuse (too slow and yast ?$#!@), kubuntu (fast but looks bad), debian (too much work for desktop OS),  fedora (sucks, slow and gnome?), xandros (stable but old software), mepis (looks good, fast but not very stable imho).

So now I tried Pardus and my first opnion is very positive. I did have to do some manual CLI tweaking but it is fast, looks good (almost on par with SUSE) and the package manager rivals debians'.

BUT. one of the largest showstopper is that SOUND is not working! I am installing on a Dell Optiplex GX270 and everything appears to be working ok, but I can't get sound working. ALL other distros had this working out of the box and it is something I really need.

I believe I have a Soundmax Intel onboard ICHP5 soundcard.

At first somehow my USB webcam was detected as primary sound device, and then I got an error:

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

this was resolved by removing the Webcam since I don't use it that much (although I would like to get it working in the future).

Now I don't get the error anymore but sound isn't working either.
At boot time I can see the following message:
isapnp: no devices detected.

Can anyone help me get sound enabled? I would like to keep Pardus but missing sound is no option for me!
