atolboo,

Thank you very much for all of your hard work.  I just finished with the installation of isowriter and am looking forward to trying it out.  All of your efforts are greatly appreciated.

2  General / Wish list / IsoWriter for Pardus 2011 and Pardus Corporate2 on: April 14, 2011, 03:26:28 AM
There used to be a very  good program for writing iso images to usb sticks in Pardus 2009.x called IsoWriter.  Since I updated my Pardus to 2011,  I can not find it in the package manager.  I also use Pardus Corporate2 on several machines at work (older computers with less RAM and less than 2G processor speed).  I hope the developers make IsoWriter available for the latest Pardus versions. I found it very user-friendly and effective while I was using version 2009.  I imagine there are others who found it useful as well.

3  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Pardus and MeeGo dualboot on: June 14, 2010, 18:52:35 PM
I have never installed MeeGo.  I looked on their site and it looks like a pretty cool project.  I think you might have to start with the pardus installation tool because I know that pardus has a partition tool that works very well.  I could not find any information on the MeeGo site about its tools for partitioning or installing.  Once you have pardus installed,  you should be able to install MeeGo on one of the other partitions you created during the pardus installation.  The only trouble you might run into with this method is with the grub bootloader.  After you finish installing both operation systems,  you may need edit the /boot/grub/grub.conf file to include both operating systems and their paths.

Another method that may be easier would be to start with the pardus installation tool to do the partitioning.  Then,  once the partitions are created,  stop the installation and install MeeGo onto one of the partitions and note which partition.  Then install pardus onto one of the other partitions.  The pardus install tool will then install grub with both of the systems available.  The Meego installation will be found during boot under "Other Options" from the boot loader.

As far as having a partition that can be used by both systems,  you can create that partition from the pardus installation tool.  You have to name it with some name that is unique (eg. /myfiles) from the "set mount point" option in the partition tool,  unless you choose to make it the home partition.  That partition must be named the same in both pardus and meego.  If you do not make it the home partition,  you must make it readable,  writable and executable by using the chmod command (chmod a+r+w+x /myfiles).  If you make it the home partition,  you must select it during installation of both pardus and meego and use the same user name for both.

Mercurio,

If hardware detection is the problem,  check BIOS settings to see if ACPI is enabled or disabled.  If it is enabled,  set it to disabled.  I have had similar problems and setting ACPI to disabled solved the problem.  If ACPI is enabled,  the BIOS sends information to the operating system to start up.  However,  sometimes the BIOS information is not exact.  To force the operating system to autodetect the settings more accurately,  ACPI should be off in the BIOS.  Good luck.

Andreas,

Thank you very much for making that request.  I wish I had thought of doing that myself.  I could have saved you the bother.

If you right-click on the panel,  you can select "add widgets".  A selection of widgets appear above the panel with a search bar.  Select the "task Manager" widget.  I think that will then show running applications in your panel so you can switch from one app to another easily.

7  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Internet Sharing on: June 11, 2010, 04:24:05 AM
On your laptop,  the nameserver ip's should match both eth0 and eth1 of your desktop.  Also,  the order that you connect the two ethernet profiles on your desktop might make a difference.  On the xbox game that I set up,  I had to enable the "internet sharing" profile in the network manager first by clicking the checkbox,  then the connection that gets the desktop online (eth1,  I think you said in your post).

Please look at this post:  http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3366.0

I think you could use a similar method to connect your laptop through your computer,  provided that your computer has two network cards.  Good luck.  Post again if you have any questions.

9  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [solved]bridging an xbox 360 through pardus to connect to net using bridge-utils on: June 10, 2010, 23:38:02 PM
I have a solution that does not use the bridge-utils package as described above.  The solution is to go into the firewall manager in system settings and check the box next to "Internet Sharing".  This creates a "Internet Sharing" profile in the network manager.  Edit the connection of that profile to use the eth0 device.  My nephew uses his wireless device to connect to a wireless router and access the internet.  His wired connection eth0 then connects to the xbox.  For his computer,  here are the settitings we used to configure the internet to work for both the computer and the xbox game:

wlan0 uses 192.168.1.25 for the IP address,  255.255.255.0 for the Network Mask (there is a dropdown to select it) and 192.168.1.1 for the Gatway (use whatever the IP address is for the router).

eth0 uses 192.168.25.25 for the IP address,  255.255.255.0 for the Network Mask and 192.168.1.25 for the gateway (same IP as the wireless card that eth0 has to go through to reach the internet).

The xbox game has to be set with its own static address,  network mask and uses 192.168.25.25 (the computer's eth0 IP) as the gateway.  We also had to enter the nameserver addresses from the pardus network manager into the DNS settings of the xbox game to complete the connection.  One additional note:  we could not connect to the internet with either computer or xbox until we turned both devices on,  then connected the "internet sharing" profle,  and lastly connected the wlan0 device from the network manager.  
10  General / Wish list / Mangler ventrillo client for linux on: June 10, 2010, 21:28:06 PM
I currently have a voip linux product called Mangler.  See their homepage here:  http://www.mangler.org/

This is a client for the popular windows only software called Ventrillo.  It allows several people to talk together,  share information,  discuss different topics.  They recently released a beta version of their newest product and I use it at work for conferencing under Pardus 2008.2.  I had to compile it manually,  but a pisi package would be great.
11  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: screen resolution on: June 10, 2010, 21:10:07 PM
I have had similar problems in the past.  What I did was to log in in text mode (by pressing Control+Alt+F1).

Login as root,  give password.  Then

$rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You then get a message like:  "really remove file?"  type yes.

This removes the xorg.conf file.  The system cannot start into the graphical mode without that file,  so when you reboot,  Pardus autodetects the best config and rewrites the file.  That has worked for me in the past.  I hope it works for you.  Good luck.

Mercurio,

Please check your system BIOS settings (usually by pressing the F2 or Del key during startup).  Make sure the system is set to boot from the CD Rom or DVD Rom drive.  Many systems default to boot from the Hard Drive,  so the install program will not start.  Good Luck!
13  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [solved]bridging an xbox 360 through pardus to connect to net using bridge-utils on: June 08, 2010, 22:18:57 PM
My nephew is running pardus 2009.2 on his home computer.  He has a usb wireless network adapter that he uses to access the internet.  He also has an ethernet card on the same computer that he wants to connect his xbox360 game to so that the game can access the internet through the computer's wireless interface.  Has anyone done this in pardus?  I used this outline of how to do it: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=665578  but I had no success.  The above article describes setting up a network bridge using two ethernet devices (eth0 and eth1) which I changed slightly for the wireless (using wlan0 and eth0 instead).  I was able to create the bridge,  but unable to establish a connection to the internet or to the xbox game.  After reboot,  the bridge no longer existed either.  I was just curious if any gamers on the forum might have experience with using the bridge-utils package.  Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions.
14  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / kmix fails to start after recent update to 2009.2 on: June 07, 2010, 01:37:07 AM
I recently ran the package manager to update to the latest release.  My sound still works,  but when I try to launch kmix,  I get the bouncing icon for a few seconds and the application shows in the panel very briefly,  but nothing happens.  The mixer never appears on the screen.  Has anyone else experienced this?
15  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Print job on: September 25, 2007, 02:33:49 AM
You can also stop a print job through Tasma.  Just select  "Peripherals" and "Printers" and under the "Jobs" tab you can highlight and stop,  start,  restart or remove the print job.
