Short for Virtual File Allocation Table, a virtual installable files system driver used in Windows for Work groups and Windows 95. VFAT operates in protected mode and serves as an interface between applications and the File Allocation Table (FAT).

The art of computing is often to bend with the system and not get caught in that what you cannot change.
In your case if it would do no harm to your stick or the content it holds choose for a format like FAT16 that is compatible for Pardus as well as XP. Cool

I am glad for you glas that you found a way out of your predicament!

Your conclusion that it does not work because of "the restrictive permissions inherent in Pardus" evades me.
My experiences with Pardus is that the restrictions inherent in it, achieve the security of the computer and does not compromise the docking of USB removable storage devices.
I have found no difficulties in switching different kinds of USB removable storage devices between the desktop and laptop I work with.

To list some combinations;
    USB harddisk with NTFS format
    USB harddisk with XFS format
    USB stick 1 GB with Fat16 format
    USB cardreader CF/MD, SM, SD/MMC/etc, MS pro/etc
May I suggest that you try out a different brand of USB flash stick(Fat16) to exclude hardware incompatibility. Cool

It is a gamble!
Click Pardus>Computer>Tasma.
Chose system>user manager select "glasiad" click tab edit.
Check the boxes, for if you have the rights for removable media, etc.

Before you used the console did you make sure your usb stick was mounted? Cool

Make yourself Root by opening console>su>password
Then type konqueror, when konqueror has opened go to system:/media and right click on your usb stick. click on Properties.
Select the Permissions tab. Change the field owner, group and others in "can view & modify content". Do not set UID,GID or Sticky.
Go back to console and type exit Cool
22  Assistance / Bugs / K3B disables DMA of Burners on: April 11, 2007, 22:38:10 PM
It would be great if it could be fixed!
I understand that this bug runs through different versions of linux.
You could state that it is a bug to be addressed by the developers of K3B, my concern though is that it could turn away potential users who lack the skill to use the console. Or simply do not want to have the hassle to enable DMA by hand!
Knowing that Pardus comes with K3B gives although it could be discussed as unfair pressure to fix a problem created by K3B.

Ciao Jan,

found a report (Id=5380) on BugZilla, date 31-3-2007

Maybe it is easy, but what am I suppose to write in that file after I open the console>su>password>kwrite>open location etc/config.d/local.start.

Quote from: "etc/config.d/local.start"
# /etc/conf.d/local.start

# This is a good place to load any misc programs
# on startup ( use 1>&2 to hide output)

When I start up K3B, it somehow disables DMA and then complains that the drive doesn't have DMA support enabled.

I know how to use the root and can enable DMA through
"hdparm -d 1 /dev/hd(x).

Q: My DVD drive supports 16X but K3B keeps burning at 1X! What's happening?
A: Your kernel most likely didn't apply optimal settings for your drive when it detected it. You can find out what are the current settings of your drive with the command

hdparm -v /dev/dvd

 IO_support   =  0 (default 16-bit)
 unmaskirq    =  0 (off)
 using_dma    =  0 (off)
 keepsettings =  0 (off)
 readonly     =  0 (off)
 readahead    = 256 (on)

The following options are known to maximize burning and playback performance:

hdparm -d1 -c1 -a8 -u1 /dev/dvd

To make these options permanent, a quick and dirty solution is to include the command in /etc/rc.local. Consult your distribution documentation for a tailored solution.
Some drives have buggy DMA support. If you experience instability, leave these options disabled.
Some useful references:

Is there a command in Pardus, to set DMA permanent for optical drives?

Do you use script through console?
If not you can install your w-lan through:
Klik on Pardus>Computer>Network Settings>select new connections>
select your W-Lan select make, select ESS Id through scan>select mode>
select wpa>fill in key>etc.(since pardus2007.rc wpa is natively support)
If you use script You have to wait for a more experienced member Cool
