46  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / pisi vs package manager on: April 11, 2007, 20:33:14 PM
I must have a different version of Firefox.  Under Tools,  there was no Settings.  I already tried to set it up by going to Edit>Preferences.  This brings up a window where you can select Advanced>Network>Settings.  It still did not connect,  even after restarting Firefox and double checking the proxy settings.  In other distros,  you can select an option to "Use System Settings"  which makes setup a little simpler.  I'm really not worried about it because Konqueror actually loads and surfs faster than Firefox,  even though some sites don't display the same.  I do appreciate your help,  though.  I'd still be stuck on the Nameserver settings if it weren't for your suggestions.

47  Assistance / Installing Pardus / grub error after install on: April 11, 2007, 14:09:37 PM
If you're looking for a live cd,  I've had good results from both Pardus and Knoppix,  but you'll have to download the iso and burn the disc in order to use it.  That may take more time and trouble than its worth.

With my last post,  I had assumed that because you had other drives and chose to install Pardus on your third hard drive,  you also had other distros.  Sorry about that.  If you have't been able to use your system since reinstalling Pardus,  why not change the way you have it set up?  You could reinstall Pardus on any one of your drives and place grub on the MBR of the same drive (which Pardus seems to default to).  Then you could choose to boot from that drive in the system BIOS.  Are you trying to save files on the other two drives?  Or did you choose to install on the third drive because of its size or speed?  The point is,  it might be quicker and less bother to reinstall in a more Pardus-friendly way.  Changing your system to fit Pardus might be easier and less time consuming than editing the grub.conf file.  Good luck with whatever way you choose!

I tried again today to export http_proxy as described above,  this time after using network manager to set up the nameservers.  This time,  I got pisi up to work.  I was still unable to connect to the internet using firefox,  but konqueror works perfectly.  I'll live without firefox.  I'm just glad I could get all of the updates.  Thanks for your help!

Another way to do it is to open the directory where you copied the file (/usr/local/game) with konqueror.  Then,  go to "Tools" along the top of the window and select "Open Terminal".  This automatically opens the terminal from the proper directory.  Then run the sh command as instructed by the game website.

Because you have multiple drives on your system,  make sure your BIOS is set up to boot from the drive you installed grub on.  If that is set correctly,  the next thing to try is to boot from a live cd and mount the drive that you installed Pardus on.  Go to /boot/grub/grub.conf and edit the file so that the line for each distro you have points to the correct drive for each distro.  For instance,  if Pardus is installed on your third hard drive,  make sure the line in the grub.conf file points to the root partition of the third drive (root=/dev/hdc1).  Because you have other distros,  you should also have those listed in the grub.conf file.  Those distros also have to have the proper root partition for each distro set in the grub.conf file in order for them to be booted.  Good luck!

You can add the proxy authentification information in /etc/bashrc and/or /etc/profile in the following way:

http_proxy=http://username:password@proxy.company.com:portnumber
export http_proxy

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I tried it today,  but still couldn't upgrade or access the internet.  I tried using pisi from the command line in super user mode and using the package manager,  but no luck.  I even tried to enter my username and password into the proxy settings in Tasma>Network Manager>Proxy in the same format you suggested I use with the command line. Strangely,  I get the green checkmark and an IP address from the network manager and I can print to local network printers.  I just can't get out to the internet.  I have the user set as wheel,  so it should be allowed to dial out.  There must be something else I'm not setting up right.  The login prompt for the internet never comes up,  but I don't know if it needs to with the information already set up using the command line.  I'm going to keep trying.  I'll post another reply if I figure it out.  Thanks again for your suggestions.
52  Assistance / Bugs / Lost wireless connection after upgrade on: April 06, 2007, 04:38:06 AM
I've also had problems with the wireless connection using the same broadcom chipset.  Intermittently it stops working with the bcm44xx driver.  I always get the connection back by removing and reinstalling the module using modprobe.  I've done some research on the driver and found that it is still considered "experimental."  Pardus is the first distro I've been able to get it to work in at all.  I've always had to use ndiswrapper with redhat,  fedora,  suse,  knoppix, kubuntu and every other distro I tried.  At least they're making progress with it.  The bcm44xx gives me far greater signal strength than the ndiswrapper module.  That's why I've stuck with it.

53  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / problems with proxy on: April 06, 2007, 03:27:52 AM
I am also having poblems upgrading from behind a proxy,  but I can't access the internet either.  My proxy server requires a username and password.  Tasma does not allow me to enter that information--it defaults to "prompt as needed" but then fails to prompt.  Is there a way to enter username and password for the proxy server from the command line?  Maybe then the package manager would work.  Just a thought.  Thanks for any suggestions.

54  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / How can I use Tasma to set up my proxy for internet? on: April 04, 2007, 04:43:57 AM
Hello everyone!

I have been using Pardus 2007.1 on my home computers for the last two weeks and have been thoroughly impressed by its performance.  I installed Pardus on one of my computers at work today,  but was unable to connect to the internet through our proxy server because I was unable to enter my internet username and pasword into the Tasma configuration for the proxy.  I was able to select "manual configuration" and enter the necessary addresses and port numbers,  but the default setting for username and password was "promt as needed" and I could not select the area to enter the required information.  I tried to open Tasma from the command line of an su terminal (thinking that I would gain root privs by doing so),  but the required feilds were still unavailable.  The network manager icon in the system tray shows the green checkmark and I get an IP address when I open the network manager,  but I cannot connect to the internet to donload packages or check email or get on to the internet.  Thanks for any suggestions!
