atk8877,

What errors are produced when you try to use the terminal on one of those types of files?  I use the terminal all of the time for .run files and .bin files as root with no problems.  Maybe there is a problem with the path to the file.  Please copy and paste the terminal output so we can see what it's doing.

Baboo,

I'm still not sure,  but maybe the command I gave before needs an actual file name,  not just a directory.  It seems like pisi needs to access an index file in order to verify installed packages before it can upgrade.  Try to type the following command with root privs:  pisi ix /var/lib/pisi/index/pardus-2007.2/pisi-index.xml.bz2

Baboo,

Try to create an index in the proper directory by typing:  pisi ix /var/lib/pisi/index/pardus-2007.2

from a command line with su privs.  That should set up the index of currently installed packages.  Then,  once that index is present,  you should be able to either do a "pisi up" or upgrade packages with Package Manager.  It seems that it can't upgrade because it doesn't have a current index and doesn't know what to upgrade.  I'm not sure if this will work,  but by reading your above posts,  it should.  Please post back to let everyone know wether it worked or not.  If this doesn't fix it,  maybe someone else will come up with a solution.  Good luck!

Baboo,

Are you connecting to the internet througha proxy server?  If so,  the following thread will walk you through setting pisi and package manager up to make the connection:  http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php/topic,338.0.html

Alex,

When clicking on a video to start mplayer,  I can see the progress bar for the stream start to move for only a breif second.  Then firefox stops.  I restart firefox and get an error message saying that firefox quit unexpectedly with the option to restore session or start new session.  I was on youtube comparing the different beryl,  compiz and vista videos when it happened.  I never had the problem before the most recent pisi up.  Before Eren's post,  I thought that it may have been a problem with Pardus.  Now,  I think it may be a conflict with the upgraded firefox and a possibly not updated mplayer plugin.  I tried several of the videos and some worked perfecly.  It seems like it only fails intermittently.  Its not really a big deal.  It only happens when I'm killing time,  not when I'm working.

I noticed that the update to 2007.2 Beta did not update KDE to 3.5.7 but remains 3.5.6.  I've also discovered a bug with firefox when trying to play videos with mplayer.  Have any of you had similar results?

Alex,
I have the same results as you posted above.  I use the default repositories from my Pardus 2007.1 installation,  but my Pardus release shows 2007.2 Beta.  It is not a problem for me.  In fact,  it works and looks just like it did before.  It would have been nice to know before I upgraded,  though.

Richard,

I think I made a mistake in my last post.  If you cannot just right click and delete the .Trash folder,  you can open a terminal from the Konqueror tools menu from the folder where the .Trash folder is located as I described above.  The correct command would be " rmdir .Trash" without the quotes.  The command I gave above only works for files,  not folders.  Sorry about the confusion.

Richard,

I think you can just right click the .Trash files and select Delete to get rid of them.  If that fails due to permissions,  open up a terminal by selecting the Tools menu and clicking Open Terminal.  This will open the terminal with the correct path.  Then type su and your password to get root permissions.  Then,  just type: rm .Trash

Is there an English equivalent to the site you mentioned in the above post?  Unfortunately,  I can not read it.  Thank you!

Richard,

In my experience with Liinux,  I have been able to copy every file type onto devices no matter which filesystem they use.  I could not find any files in my Kmail directory with 2.S extension,  so I can't really tell what the problem is.  What I did to duplicate the problem was to browse to my Kmail directory (located in the directory /home/msull/.kde/share/apps) and copy it by dragging and dropping it into my usb flash directory with Fat32 file system.  I selected the "Show Hidden Files" tab from the View menu in Konqueror so I could see if there were any files with unusual extensions.  For me,  the directory /home/msull/.kde/share/apps/kmail contains all of my settings for kmail and all of my mail folders.  Maybe I backed up the wrong directory.  Did you find your kmail folder in the same place that I did?  The only part that should be different between your system and mine should be the "/msull" part because that is my local user name.  Your local user name would replace "msull" on your system.  Let me know if you backed up a different Kmail folder so I can try to reproduce the problem on my system and help work it out.

RMP,

I tried to duplicate your problem on my own system so I could try to help you figure it out.  All of my Kmail files copied without a problem onto my FAT32 usb stick.  When I've had problems copying or moving files in the past,  I have always received error messages which told me why it failed to copy--usually permission problems.  Does your system give any error messages when you try to copy the fles?  Also,  this post has some good step by step information about priveleges if that is what the problem is:  http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php/topic,917.0.html  Hopefully,  this information will help you.

Gabrieel,

Open a Terminal in superuser mode.  Then type,  "chmod a+r /dev/hda1"  This command should give all users read access to your windows partition /dev/hda1.

Mailman,

Sorry about the hassle in setting this up.  For me,  it is second nature,  so I may not have been specific enough.  After you enter the commands I mentioned above,  you have to right click on the network manager icon,  select edit connections and click on the checkbox to enable it.  If all of the settings are correct as far as nameservers,  essid,  encryption type and password go,  everything should work.  The checkbox for your connection should be off ONLY while you enter the commands to uninstall and reinstall the bcm43xx module.  After you verify the interface is up with "ifconfig eth1 up" you have to check the box to turn it on.  It works for me every time I use my laptop.  I'm sorry if I haven't been clear or if its not working for you.  The bcm43xx module is still listed as experimental.  Maybe you have a newer or older version of the chipset than I have which might make a differece.  With all of the other distributions of Linux I've tried over the last few years I've had this laptop,  I had to use ndiswrapper because I couldn't get the bcm43xx to work at all.  Pardus is the first distro I've been able to use it,  but it takes more effort than it should.  Maybe you should try to use ndiswrapper with the windows driver.
