1  Assistance / Hardware / Re: DVB-T support? (Freecom USB DVB-T + Pardus?) on: September 10, 2007, 21:19:10 PM
Hey,

You could have a look at the following website (in german and for gentoo):

http://www.johannes-bauer.com/dvbt/

But before you touch your kernel, it's probably better to first have a look at the output of the dmesg command. Just plug-in your device, open a terminal (Konsole for example) and then type dmesg. If it says something like:

Code:
usb 1-1.1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6
dvb-dibusb: found a 'TwinhanDTV USB1.1 / Magic Box / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device' in warm state.
DVB: registering new adapter (DiBcom based USB Budget DVB-T device).
dvb-dibusb: found demodulator at i2c address 0x8
dvb-dibusb: this device has the Thomson Cable onboard. Which is default.
DVB: registering frontend 0 (DiBcom 3000M-B DVB-T)...
dvb-dibusb: schedule remote query interval to 100 msecs.
dvb-dibusb: TwinhanDTV USB1.1 / Magic Box / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device successfully initialized and connected.

The device is recognized by pardus, if it displays something different (the name of the device itself is not mentioned and only the first line of the above shows) you should start looking at the kernel configuration, and after that install the dvb-dibusb driver. Most of that is described in the link above, and for the  kernel compiling there are enough how-to's on the internet.

Ben

Hey,

Quite an interesting question. Since I'm not a pardus dev I'm not sure my answers is complete, but after a bit of research it looks like these components are used to navigate through the filetree on the server where most of the packages are stored. Also I think these are used to categorise the packages in the package manager, but of this last part I'm not very sure.

3  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Installing BeFS Driver on: September 10, 2007, 20:54:19 PM
Hey,

The code you've downloaded is still quite old, from what I've read on their website the 'latest' version of the code was made available even before the 2.6 kernel was released. So probably that's the cause of the code not compiling. When I discovered that, I went on searching with google and found that BeFS is already available in the current kernel-source[1]. It should also be available in the pardus kernel tree, but probably it's not compiled yet. So the only thing you have to do is recompile the pardus kernel and add the BeFS support under FS (filesystems). There are quite a lot of how-to's on the internet on recompiling a kernel, so I won't describe it here.

Regards,

Ben

ps. If you can't find them, please post back again, and I'll post some instructions.

Hey,

I don't know which game this is, but you could do a search in wine application database to see if it is supported, or if there are any other people that had the same problems. The database is located here:

http://appdb.winehq.org/appbrowse.php

5  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How do i "exit x" on: August 21, 2007, 19:18:00 PM
Hey,

it's quite easy, just do the following:

first become root by using the su command (followed by your root password).

Then just type init 3

Then X will exit and you can login again.

Then if you want to get back to X just type init 5.

6  Assistance / Software / Re: Virtualbox on: August 21, 2007, 16:08:53 PM
Hey Willem,

I've been working with virtualbox yesterday on SuSE and had the same problem. It can be fixed by installing the guest addons on the virtualized XP. Just boot the virtual pc and then click the device > Install guest addons option when XP is fully booted. If I'm correct you should then get a setup window to install those. If it still doesn't work go to the hardware listing dialog (just rightclick this computer > properties and I believe it was somewhere in the second or third tab, in dutch it's called apparaatbeheer). Then find the ethernet card and if it's not functioning (it has a question mark symbol over the card icon) you will have to install the drivers yourself. If that is the case doubleclick the card, then take the second tab and click the install driver button. Then go to the cd player (in your virtual pc that is) and go to the AMD_PC (or some similar named folder) and choose the inf file there. It will install the drivers and then you should be able to use the network adapter, just configure the internet settings.

Regards,

Ben
7  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Canon Pixma ip1600 on: August 21, 2007, 15:46:32 PM
Hey,

Sorry for the late reply. Had some studying to do for a test at university. But I did some more research on this. For starters, I discovered (probably a bit late, but better late then never) that you were going to need the official linux drivers from Canon and that they are not supplied with Pardus (this, you allready discovered). Also I did some more work with google and found a thread in the turkish forum where this problem is also addressed. According to one of the links they gave, it's allready listed as a bug, so there is being worked on a pisi package. Untill that time you will have to install/compile the drivers by hand. Here are some instructions for that:

1. Download the drivers from (it's useful to create a new folder for all this stuff, since the canon file does not contain a folder) :
http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0024301.asp

2. Install rpm2tgz using the pardus packet manager (if it's not installed allready)

3. Open a terminal, go to the folder where you downloaded the package to and extract the rpm files using this command:
Code:
tar xvzf iP2200_Linux_260.tar.gz

4. Now we are going to convert the 2 rpm's we really need:
Code:
rpm2targz cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm
rpm2targz cnijfilter-ip2200-2.60-1.i386.rpm

5. Since these rpm's allready contained all the compiled stuff we only need to extract the files from the tar files we've just created and copy them to the right place:

extract
Code:
tar xvzf cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.tar.gz
tar xvzf cnijfilter-ip2200-2.60-1.i386.tar.gz

Install

If everything went OK you should now have a usr folder in the same folder as where the tar packages are. Now we are going to copy this to /usr folder:

Code:
sudo cp -r usr /

6. The installation has now been finished, you should now only restart cups, so that it will be able to find the new driver and backend we've just installed. To do this Open Tasma, then go the system category and click the services option. In the list find the CUPS printer server and click the restart button.

7. You should now be able to add the printer through the peripherals > Printers option in tasma, or through the CUPS web GUI at localhost:631 (open a webbrowser, then type localhost:631 in the addressbar, click the administration tab and click add printer). The Canon driver can be found under Canon and is named: Canon iP2200 Ver.2.60

I hope these seven steps are enough to solve the problems you were having.

Kind regards,

Ben
8  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: What is the proper way to reconfigure X if it fails on: August 15, 2007, 22:31:15 PM
Hey,

I don't really know how this problem is solved in pardus, but what I usually do when I have problems getting X to run is looking at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Usually I find the error there and most of the time the error messages there are quite readable (as in being able to understand what they mean). Then I always try to correct what's wrong in xorg.conf. Another possibility is that you just create a backup of your xorg.conf when X is running and you are planning to experiment with X. If something goes wrong you can always track down the differences between the backup and the new file using the diff command. And of course change the settings so everything works again.

Regards,

Ben

ps. If you still want to know how the pardus dev's solved it you could always try to contact them using the irc channel or through the personal messaging system on the site.
9  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Conexant winmodem .. on: August 15, 2007, 22:20:52 PM
Hey,

Did you also tried to configure the modem and compile the kernel modules ? Since that's also quite an important step. No kernel modules means no way for kppp to detect the device. Since the above knowledge also came from some other site I'm now going to refer to that site for more instructions :

http://xlife.zuavra.net/columns/20021104/

They also offer information on how to configure the modem from the commandline, but I don't know how comfortable you are with that (powerful) tool.

Regards,

Ben

ps. If you need more help, or there are things you don't understand in the column, feel free to post again.
10  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Locale problem on: August 15, 2007, 22:12:37 PM
Hey Marie,

What you could try is changing the character set to unicode in firefox. To do this go to view > character set > Unicode UTF-8.
I'm not sure if character set was the right word since I'm working on a dutch system, but just try to find the Unicode (UTF-8) option somewhere in the view menu and click it when visiting the site.

Ben
11  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: KDE sessions on: August 15, 2007, 22:04:45 PM
Hey,

you could try some of the following instructions (although I can't test them, since I'm now working on SuSE, still have pardus around though):

1) Open konqueror and in the adress bar type
Code:
settings:/
. If this works it could be possible that you can find it their.
2) From the commandline try running one of these commands:

Code:
kcontrol

or

Code:
system-settings

I hope one of these will work for you, since the instructions above are the only ways I know to access the kcontrol center for when it's not available in the menu.

Regards,

Ben
12  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Canon Pixma ip1600 on: August 15, 2007, 21:56:17 PM
Hey,

According to some info on the OpenPrinting database site, it should be possible to use the driver for ip2200. Here's the page where I found the info:

http://www.openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Canon-PIXMA_iP1600

Hope this info is enough for you,

Regards,

Ben

ps. If you need a step by step guide please post again.
13  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Tilt wheel on my mouse on: August 15, 2007, 21:50:21 PM
Hey Willem,

You will probably have to set these from the xorg.conf fille or using xbindkeys. Since I'm not really an expert on this I did a small search on google and probably found what you are looking for. It's not really the best readable guide but I hope it's useful enough to fix the problem. Here's a link:

14  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: kopete with webcam issues on: August 15, 2007, 21:33:11 PM
Hey,

For about three out of four I know the answer.

1. Skype protocol was supported in the past, but that was only audio, If you still want skype you can download the skype client for linux from their website.

2. MSN as well as Yahoo video are supported according to the following page on the kopete wiki:
http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page=Kopete%20Webcam%20Support

But you will have to make sure that your webcam is also functioning on linux.

3. For MSN you could also try using aMSN it also has webcam support.

Regards,

Ben

ps. If it doesn't work feel free to post again in this topic.
15  International Pardus Users / Dutch / Re: ACER dual-core on: August 09, 2007, 22:38:58 PM
Hoi Jack,

Meestal is voor het opstarten van de kernel (dus livecd bootscherm, waarna je op enter moet drukken) wel mogelijk om op F1 te drukken. Daar wordt vaak extra uitleg gegeven over de verschillende bootopties die mogelijk zijn met de betreffende live cd. Ik neem aan dat dit ook geldt voor de pardus livecd, maar aangezien ik deze niet eerder heb gebruikt, zou ik niet weten of het ook daarmee werkt. Wat betreft de support voor dualcore processoren zit het wel goed bij pardus. Ik schrijf dit zelf vanaf pardus dat draait op een dell dualcore laptop. Heb er redelijk goede ervaringen mee tot nu toe.

Groetjes,

Ben
