31  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [solved]Can't get resolution right after installing nvidia driver on: August 10, 2008, 16:31:15 PM
After being away for a week I ran a large update on Saturday and upon reboot pardus went to the command line. I logged in and ran 'startx' and it said there was a mismatch between the version of the nvidia driver and the kernel - sorry, don't recall the exact error.

I didn't how to address this so I just simply did a reinstall. On first boot it came up with the proper resolution - 1600x1200 - but when I installed the nvidia driver through tasma, it booted into 800x600. I tried several times with the same result.

After another clean install I ran 'pisi up' from the command line to update the kernel first, then tried the tasma route, same result. Then I did another clean install, ran 'pisi up', installed nvidia-new from the command line, rebooted, ran nvidia-xconfig, and still 800x600. Then I edited xorg.conf to change the res to 1600x1200, saved it, rebooted, and the change didn't stay! Xorg.conf still show 800x600 even after I edited and saved it.

Right now I've got a fully updated pardus with nvidia-drivers-new installed (installed and tried nvidia-drivers as well) with a resolution stuck at 800x600 that I can't change through either tasma or manual editing of xorg.conf

Any ideas as to what I can do to get my resolution back to 1600x1200 with an nvidia driver installed?

It is not a problem, to look in the package-manager, whether new packages are available.  Wink

Is there some kind of 'new in the repository' function like synaptic?
33  General / The Pub / Re: Browser on: July 08, 2008, 22:09:52 PM
It could be the fact that Andreas and myself are still using the 2007.3 version of pardus.

That could be a very important difference.

p.s. I`m just building 9.51 trough pisibul

Let us know when it's ready. Will it show up as an update in pisi or will you have to go through pisibul?

Opera. When I installed Pardus 2008 I installed Opera 9.5 from the community repository. I've found it to be terribly buggy. It freezes constantly and becomes unuseable after a couple of minutes. That, along with not being able to get any sound meant I had to walk away from what was otherwise an excellant distro that I had been awaiting for some time.

Has anyone else found a similar problem with the Opera from community? Anyone do a tarball install with better luck?

The German Community is offering updatet versions:

Let's pretend that my German isn't as good as your English  Wink   Cheesy

What is going on there?    Shocked
36  General / Fun website / Re: Your-Free-OS Website by Me on: June 24, 2008, 17:07:28 PM
Definitely Pclinuxos and Sidux.

Also consider Sabayon (3.5 final due out in a couple of weeks), and Mandriva. Yes, I'm kde biased  Cheesy  For small xfce distros there is the aforementioned Kateos which I haven't looked at in some time, and Vector and Zenwalk.

You might want to wait until Pclinuxos 2008 final comes out - although no one knows when that will be  Huh?.  The current main install cd is over a year old and the updates are huge at this point. The 2008 mini is good but very limited in applications and I think is already a couple of months old. (My memory isn't too good here). You will get a better take on this distro with 2008 final.

Perhaps we just form the wish to a
Grub-loader-recovery-tool which is able to reinstall grub which also get you to elect where grub is placed to /root-partition, mbr, or on your first or second HDD.

Is that a suggestion?Huh? Smiley

Great idea. I've used the pclinuxos grub largely becasue of the redo-mbr feature available that makes reinstalling grub painless. I install a lot of distros to look at and play with and this feature has made my life very easy quite often.

With Pardus RC 2 I've switched to using the Pardus grub to see how it works. Was quite disappointed it didn't pick up any of the other distros I had installed - had to manually edit grub for that.

Picking up other distros on install and an easy way to reinstall the grub would be two very nice features to see in Pardus in the future.

  • 16 June Monday : Pardus 2008 RC2

I'm a programmer, so no hassles about release delays  Cheesy, but any updated estimate for RC2?

It's great to see someone from this neck of the woods using a real OS .

Here's a link to the bridge cam

Cool, thanks. Haven't seen that much fog for a long time  Grin

@Caber

Charlottetown or Summerside? There's not much else on the Island is there?

I grew up in Nova Scotia and spent a fair bit of time camping on PEI. Used to love the ferry rides as a kid. Took the bridge in 2005 when I went home to visit for the first time in almost 20 years. Impressive piece of work.

Good to see someone from Atlantic Canada using good software.

Thanks. Is that new? Don't recall seeing it before. Will give it a try when I get home tonight.
42  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Getting nvidia driver to work with 2008 RC? on: June 12, 2008, 16:01:41 PM
Is there a trick to this I'm missing? From pisi I've installed nvidia-new drivers along with the config tools. After this I run 'nvidia-xconfig' and xorg.conf is good to go but when I reboot I get nvidia driver not found.

After that I unstalled/reinstalled the driver but got the same thing. Then I uninstalled and installed the driver manually after downloading the driver from nvidia. So far no joy. Am I missing something obvious here?

Oh, and I really like the look and feel of 2008 so far and can't wait for the repos to get more filled up (Opera 9.5) and to sort out this nvidia driver thing.

2nd, 3rd, etc.......

Can't live without my Opera!!!

Ok, ignore this thread - which, apparently everyone is already. I removed contrib from pisi, added it again, updated, and now Opera appears, which it didn't this morning.  - ? -  The joys of computers...
45  Assistance / Software / Where did Opera go? (Solved) on: March 20, 2008, 12:33:43 PM
I reinstalled 2007.3 last night and, following several posts on the forum, added the contrib repository to pisi and went to add Opera. But it wasn't found.

It's been a long time since I've installed from scratch and had to add Opera. Has something changed? Is there a reason it isn't in contrib anymore?
