Mailman,

Right click on the network manager icon in the system tray and select "Edit Connections."  Then,  make sure the checbox for your connection is NOT checked.  Then,  follow the above instructions from the command line as superuser (you can just arrow up until you find the commands--they are given in order from most recent to the oldest).  After uninstalling and reinstalling,  now you should be able to get a connection.  For some reason,  the connection must be off when entering the commands.  Sorry I forgot to mention that in my other post.

Mailman,

I'm not certain that will work.  It may work,  but I never tried it that way,  so I can't garantee that it will.  You can try it that way and post back if it solves the problem.  What I do to get my broadcom chipset to work is open a terminal,  type "su" to get root privaleges (you have to supply the root password).  Then I use modprobe to uninstall the module and reinstall the module.  Type "modprobe -r bcm43xx" then hit enter.  Then type "modprobe -i bcm43xx" and hit enter again.  Now,  your module for the wireless card is ready.  Make sure the wireless hardware is on by typing "ifconfig eth1 up" (you may have to replace "eth1" with "wlan0" depending on how your system is set up.  I know this seems more complex than the way the user in the thread you quoted did it,  but I know this works for me because I do it.  Also,  because the commands you enter frequently in a Terminal can be scrolled by using the up arrow key,  its just a matter of scrolling to the right command and hitting enter,  rather than retyping.  I'm the only user of my laptop,  so creating another user seems silly to me.  You'll have to do this right after each startup to get connected,  but it takes only a second.  Once you run these commands,  you can get connected as usual by clicking the network icon in the system tray.  Good luck!  If you need more info,  just post again.  I'll try to help if I can.

Mailman,

Do you use a broadcom wireless card with the bcm43xx module?  If so,  check this thread: http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php/topic,721.0.html  It may help you sort out the wireless problems.

Spidey,

I think you also need to install the kernel-source package to build modules.  Install using tasma and then retry your VMware.  Good luck!

And if I make it the home page on all of the computers I use in a day,  Pardus will become about 15 times more famous.  More is better!!

I think this is a bug.  According to the above article "Amdcccle is only at version 0.8, and everything isn't 100% set so if you run into any problems please report them."  I ran into the same problem.  It sounds like there will be improvements as the program matures from its current 'beta" status.

roverrat,

Thanks!  I found and edited the pisi.conf file and Package Manager works perfectly!  Thanks a lot!

It seems that the Package Manager program fails to use the proxy as set up in Tasma to connect to the internet to download updates.  It tries to make a direct connection,  but fails.  For those of us who use a proxy,  this is a real problem.  Every time I try to use Package Manager I get the error about checking network settings and trying again.  Hopefully,  this will be resolved with future updates.

39  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: pisi vs package manager on: May 05, 2007, 15:01:26 PM
I got back from vacation and had a chance to work on my Pardus machine though the proxy.  I tried several configurations of the proxy settings in Tasma to try to get Package Manager (the graphic front end to pisi) to function.  All of my attempts failed.  I did learn that "pisi" from the command line does still work,  but that exporting the proxy configuration the way roverrat describes above is necessary every time you run it.  Apparently,  the proxy information is not saved from session to session,  so it must be reentered each time.  I have also been experimenting with Firefox to get it to work.  Again,  all attempts have failed for me.  Strangely,  Konqueror works perfectly every time.  I would like to get Package Manager and Firefox running,  but I've tried everthing I could think of and not been successful yet.  If I figure it out,  I'll post again.  If anyone has some recommendations,  I would appreciate it.

No,  Package Manager still does not work.  The last time I tried to use the machine in question was last week.  At that point,  Konqueror was the only program that worked to connect to the internet through the proxy server.  On the date that I posted above,  I could use "pisi up" from the command line to get updates.  Since then,  "pisi up" has not worked.  I know there have been more updates since that time because I use Pardus at home and have not had a problem updating with Package Manager because I don't use a proxy server at home.  When I tried last week using the machine at work from the command line,  I got the message,  "Program Terminated.  Please check your network connections and try again.  Name or Service not known."  I could connect with Konqueror but not with Firefox or Package Manager.  I'll try and spend some more time with it next week when I get back to work and post the results.  I wish I had some better information or more specific instructions to offer until then,  but I can't duplicate the problem from where I am--there's no proxy.

41  Assistance / Installing Pardus / could not start kstartupconfig, check your installation. on: April 19, 2007, 03:52:17 AM
There could be something wrong with your installation cd.  If you used windows to burn the cd iso image,  it may have errors that windows would not catch.  If that is the case,  your new installation may have failed to install some key KDE components,  giving you your current error.  You could try to check this by logging in from the command line and typing "pisi li" which will display a list of the installed packages.  Check if kdelibs is present on that list.  If it is not,  you can try "pisi it kdelibs" to install the kde libraries.  I'm afraid that you may have to replace your media and reinstall if the kde components are missing or damaged on your installation cd.  Aside from that,  I can't think of any other solution.  Good Luck.  I hope this helps you.

42  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / permissions with usb flash stick on: April 15, 2007, 19:15:33 PM
In almost 10 years of experience with linux,  I've never had trouble mounting and using a variety of file systems.  I curently have a 120 GB usb storage drive with vfat formatting plugged into my desktop,  and it works perfectly--reading,  writing and executing.  If you right click on the icon for your mounted flash drive and select "Properties" it should bring up a window with four different headings,  "General,  Permissions,  Meta Info,  and Mounting."  Select "Mounting" and see if the checkbox at the top marked,  "Read Only" is checked.  Mine isn't,  but maybe yours is and that might be the reason your Flash Drive is unavailable for writing files.  I can't think of anything else that could be the problem.

43  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / permissions with usb flash stick on: April 15, 2007, 18:29:07 PM
All of the usb storage devices that I use give ownership to the user logged in at the time they are mounted with the group listed as Root.  I'm not sure why your flash drive is different.  The chown command you already tried should have given you permission to read,  write and execute any file on your flash drive.  The only other suggestion I can think of is to try the chmod command to change permissions for all users.  You can do this by openning a terminal,  typing "su" then your root password.  Then,  with the usb flash drive mounted,  type "chmod a+r+w+x /media/sda1".  This should give all users (a) read (+r),  write (+w),  and execute (+x) permissions for the device /media/sda1.  I'm not sure why it doesn't already work,  but this should make it work.  Good Luck!

44  Assistance / Hardware / Network printer on: April 14, 2007, 02:50:21 AM
I have several computers and only one Epson Stylux CX4800 all in one printer.  I set it up on my desktop computer and it worked perfectly both as a scanner and a printer.  However,  when I followed the above instructions to make it visible over my network to the other computers (all running Pardus or Mac OSX with CUPS printing system),  it no longer works at my desktop computer and still is not available to any of my other computers.  I tried to set it up again with >Tasma>Peripherals>Printers using the KDE setup utilities but was unable to get it working as a local printer from my desktop or as a print server from the other networked machines.  If anyone has any suggestions,  I'd appreciate it.

45  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / linking [shortcut] problem on: April 12, 2007, 02:21:20 AM
From the command line,  type:  su,  then your root password.  Then type:  "chmod a+x /usr/local/games/armyops" to change the privileges of the game so that all users can execute.  Once this is done,  any link or shortcut to the game should function.  Have fun!
