1  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Problem with grub Pardus on: April 06, 2007, 19:27:15 PM
Quote from: "mistermaarten"
I understand what you are saying. Pardus on the live cd looks really nice to. But if I see all solutions miserably failing in a terminal, I feel like a donkey. Don't know what to do, don't know what I can do, asking myself if I ever get the hang of this all...?! But I believe that once you get the hang of it/Linux/Pardus, it's 1 milion times better then Windows. But thats the thing with Windows, why Microsoft is so big: every donkey can use it (and if it fails, reinstall the donkey).

Send a Private Message to murat,  he should be able to sort something out such that you can at least boot back into XP.

To be fair, it's only relatively recently that Pardus has been aimed at general users as opposed to hobbyists, though that's no excuse for not being able to boot into a perfectly straightforward hardware configuration.

In the terminal the files are not found (cd /mnt/hdb1/boot/grub/)

In which case it sounds as if hdb1 wasn't automatically mounted by the LiveCD. Open up a terminal (Alt+F2, "konsole") and type
su root ("uludag")
mount /mnt/hdb1
cd /mnt/hdb1/boot/grub/
kate grub.conf

Failing that, you could always burn a DamnSmallLinux iso (they're not much bigger than 50MB), boot into it, open "ATerminal", and type in this sequence of commands;
sudo su (no password required)
mount /mnt/hdb1
cd /mnt/hdb1/boot/grub/
beaver grub.conf
Having made the changes you can then right-click the wallpaper to reboot into Pardus.

It has to be said, Pardus is a generally well put-together distribution, so don't let this experience put you off from using Linux (and in any event, Ubuntu Feisty's being released at the end of the month :wink:).

Don't know for certain, but the user and root password is probably "uludag".

FWIW I had the same problem after installing Pardus to a second hard drive and electing to put the bootloader on the MBR of hda, which I solved using a KateOS LiveCD.

My guess is that you would have to open up a terminal,
cd /mnt/hdb1/boot/grub/
sudo cp grub.conf grub.conf.original
kdesu kate grub.conf
and, as you suggest, change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) where it refers to splashimage and throughout the section headed title Pardus 2007.1 Felis chaus.

My Windows partition settings were actually set correctly, so yours should presumably read:
title Windows (ntfs) - hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title Windows (fat32) - hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

title Windows (ntfs) - hda2
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

if there's a "Windows restoration" partition.

Fixed after the major update yesterday!
Thanx for your requests

They'd have done it anyway, sooner or later  :wink: .

I've experienced that the Pardus developers do the updates in bulks every couple of weeks.

With the result that Pardus security updates tend to lag behind. A few recent examples:

tcpdump vulnerability

thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities
CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0776, CVE-2007-0777 etc.

They don't put every update on the net, as soon as it is there, but do some testing of it.

For a fortnight?

And I think it's better that way

Not if it leaves my machine and its data vulnerable for any longer than is strictly necessary, I'm afraid.

(I remember a update of X in Kubuntu, which made the system crash, so it's not wise to always trust the developers of a software-package)

IIRC that was more down to lax bureaucracy  than anything else -- the X.org maintainer pulled a package from Debian Experimental and put it straight into Ubuntu's Bug Fix Updates repository.

Resolved as of April 3's set of updates.

Updated today.

All things come to he who waits 14 days (I notice Ubuntu posted their patch some seven days before  :roll: ).

Released upstream on March 20, where is this security update in the Pardus repos?

The same problem in openSUSE 10.2: http://help.lockergnome.com/linux/Firefox-2x-unable-click-open-htm-html-files-spaces-ftopict416402.html.
11  Assistance / Bugs / Peculiar bug in Konqueror/Firefox on: March 29, 2007, 02:12:30 AM
I've no idea whether this bug is particular to Pardus or endemic to KDE 3.5.6, but would be interested to know if there's a simple solution...

Saving a web page to file with spaces in the filename, Firefox can open the saved file from within the File > Open File dialog. However, if I try to open that same file from within Konqueror (acting as a file browser) by right-clicking its icon and selecting Open With > Firefox, Firefox returns an error.

So for example, I save to file the tuxmachines.org front page using the default filename tuxmachines.org | Do you waddle the waddle?.html, and am able to open the file from within Firefox. However, when I open the file by right-clicking its icon in Konqueror, Firefox reports

File not found

Firefox can't find the file at /home/Tiedemann/Desktop/tuxmachines.org.

Likewise if there's a space in the file path itself, so attempting to open /home/Tiedemann/My Documents/main.html results in

File not found

Firefox can't find the file at /home/Tiedemann/My.

The problem is specific to Firefox, i.e. there isn't a problem with Nvu or Opera (or Thunderbird, in the case of .eml files). It still persists when Firefox is set as Konqueror's default web browser. The only solution is to manually substitute either underscores or %20s for spaces.

I have a stupid question: how to change the language of the text in an OpenOffice document? (For example the default is English, but I want to set all text as Dutch)

I can't find where to do that..

Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages > Default languages for documents

Will it work for 'OpenOffice' when copied to the Mozilla folder?

No, you need to copy them to /opt/OpenOffice.org/lib/ooo-2.1/share/dict/ooo

There's a guide to manually installing OpenOffice dictionaries here.

Incidentally, adding .aff and .dic files to /usr/lib/MozillaThunderbird/components/myspell/ is currently the only way of adding dictionaries to Thunderbird (adding one via an .xpi file doesn't work).

I've got the answer already!

Found the dictionaries.pisi and the help.pisi I believe on the Pardus FTP, downloaded, put them on the USB stick, moved them to the desktop in Pardus, installed manually via the terminal, both works like a charm!

OpenOffice language packs are also compatible with Thunderbird and Firefox, and can be used to add dictionary support for languages not otherwise supported by Mozilla.

The relevant spelling dictionary can be downloaded from http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Dictionaries, unzipped, and the .aff and .dic files copied to /usr/lib/MozillaThunderbird/components/myspell/ or usr/lib/MozillaFirefox/dictionaries/

Hi there,

When I activate 'spell check when you type' nothing happens: no red underlined words appeared - even when I make mistakes.

When I activate 'spell check' (with F7 key) spell checking opens and quits again immediately stating: 'Spell checking completed'.

How come?


You'll need to install the "openoffice-dicts" package.
