I've downloaded the driver from the nvidia website, but I have no idea how to install it..

This might help click

p.s. In versions newer than 2007.3 changing to root is done by using the su- commnad.
2  General / Wish list / Re: Lotus Symphony and more on: July 24, 2008, 18:48:45 PM
Hello rfpa!

I tought I would share my experiences and thoughts with Lotus Symphony


Lotus Symphony is a lovely office suite, I have installed it a couple of weeks ago and must say I`m surprised how polised it looks.

Regarding building a pisi package for Lotus Syphony I`m not familiar with the licence under which Symphony is released, nor do I have the knowledge to anwser, if there will be a pisi package in the future. All I can say is for now, there is no official packages whatsoever for any distribution. Installation of Symphony is only possible by using a binary file.

Startup time has been a pleasant surprise after using OpenOffice exclusively for almost 2 years now. I do however hope boot time is going to be considerably faster when 3.0 is released.

GUI looks like an upgraded version of OpenOffice with some additional attachments (tabs), all together is rounded with a nice and very eye pleasing blue theme. Overall GUI`s are a matter of personal preference, it`s up to the end user to decide which one is more mature, intuitive, easier to use or has a better look.

It supports most common office formats out of the box. There were some rumors about IBM has gotten rid of some advanced functions and features, but so far this are only rumors, but I`m not an advanced Office user so I haven`t noticed any lack of features, it`s all there and works like it should.

Hello Thane!

Here is the easier way. As I can understand you got past step 2.

Libflashplayer.so file should be stored in one of those two directories or maybe in both (/opt/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.so or in
/usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/libflashplayer.so)

1. Start console and login as root to get this # sign at the end fo the line (su- hit enter and then enter your root password).
2. If your libflashplayer.so file is stored in /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins then copy this line into your console and press enter
Code:
cp /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/opera/plugins/

the other possibility is that libflashplayer.so is stored in /opt/netscape/plugins/ then copy this line into console and press enter
Code:
cp /opt/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/opera/plugins/

If it is stored in both directories it doesn`t matter from which one you copy the file, just choose one.

By following what is written above you can skip step number 4.

Step 5 is a bit modified, here is the right path

Code:
5. open opera go to tools ----> preferences ----> advanced----> content ----> click on plugin options ----> click change path

Everything else should work with no problems

I do agree however the version of opera in repo is 9.50, while if you build it yourself from pisibul, you can get 9.51 which isn`t in the repo, at least the last time I checked it wasn`t.
5  General / The Pub / Re: Browser on: July 09, 2008, 08:46:13 AM
I`m not sure if it will show in package manager. I also don`t know if 2007.3 will still be officially supported with fresh pisi packages and developed any further (should ask the devs that questions). My guess is, this is not likely going to happen.
So far the only way I can think of getting opera 9.51 on 2007.3 is to build a package yourself trough pisibul.
6  General / The Pub / Re: Browser on: July 08, 2008, 21:17:03 PM
Same here no problems whatsoever with 9.5 (flash works like a charm) release. It could be the fact that Andreas and myself are still using the 2007.3 version of pardus.

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

Hi alvx!

It`s almost the same situation in Slovenia, only major cities have interenet connection trough fiber optics and cos of that they are given option to use high speed dsl connections for low price. On suburbs many are still using adsl as this is the only way to get internet connection, but things are looking better  Grin
I had luck when I started learning linux cos at the time many users were still on adsl and instructions weren`t hard to find.
8  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Adsl setup problem on: June 29, 2008, 16:35:17 PM
I`m out of ideas.

One last thing have you configured pardus adsl-setup with the same username and password as in windows?
Cos I also dual boot with windows and I have configured my internet connection in windows just by following the wizdard and using username and password my isp have provided to me. Considering this it might me a driver issue just like you said.
9  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Adsl setup problem on: June 29, 2008, 15:37:32 PM
just one more question are you using windows aswell (dualbooting). if so what kind of information do you use to connect when using windows?
another try using username sabihergun without @ttnet on the end.
10  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Adsl setup problem on: June 29, 2008, 14:50:25 PM
according to screenshots you have posted, you have`t specified dns adresses.
try running adsl-setup again (su-) and fill dns adresses with these two

Code:
primary dns: 208.67.222.222
secondary dns: 208.67.220.220

about the firewall option put it to 1 not 0

p.s. just in case pay attention when filling in username and password when asked about, both have to be valid (capslock on/off).

12  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / [solved]Re: New Pardus user: ADSL - PPPoE help on: June 29, 2008, 10:14:23 AM
I`m another adsl user who had the same problems regarding internet connection.

After reading trough the tread i saw that some things changed again :S (su-), on top of all rp-pppoe pisi isn`t included in pardus package installation process. It is true that majority of users don`t use adsl anymore but still there are few that need pppoe pisi to get internet connection going. From new user point of view this can be a very important aspect especially if this user doesn`t use dual boot with windows, he is basically left in the dark to do his own research. Another thing is command line tools for new user is a no go, there is a big posibility that they will freak out and ran to another distribution or back to windows (point and click mentality).

@ alvx: Regarding setup of the internet connection, you seem to have quite a few experiences with different distros, I`m glad to hear you got connection up and going.

Here is another way how to get connection up at boot time

1. open console and login as root
2. use konqueror or mc to make copy of sudoers file. back it up to another location prior to editing it.
3. open sudoers file located in /etc with your favorite text editor
4. edit sudoers file to look like this
Code:
# sudoers file.
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.
#

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# Defaults specification

# Runas alias specification

# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Allow members of the group "dialout" to connect to the internet:
%dialout   ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pppoe-start, /usr/sbin/pppoe-stop

# Same thing without a password
#%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL


5. the key line that must be added is
Code:
# Allow members of the group "dialout" to connect to the internet:
%dialout   ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pppoe-start, /usr/sbin/pppoe-stop
6. save it and exit

Second part consists of making yourself an executable script that will be started at boot time

1. open your favorite text editor and
2. copy this lines in to it
Code:
#! /bin/bash
# dsl start
sudo /usr/sbin/pppoe-start
3. save the file and name it like you want (ex. adsl-start)
4. right click on the file ----> properties----> permissions tab----> make a tick in the is executable box----> confirm the changes
5. open console you can use mc to navigate to ~/.kde3.5/Autostart
6. find your script and copy it to location mentioned above
7. restart your computer and try if it works
8. if you want you can make another script for disconnecting your connection
Code:
#! /bin/bash
# dsl stop
sudo /usr/sbin/pppoe-stop

p.s. I can`t confirm that this is working on pardus 2008 but I`m using it daily on 2007.3 and other distros, so it should work without any problems

Regards,
bandito

@capweb

have you tried to manualy install nvidia drivers?

here are some references regarding manual installation of nvidia drivers click

p.s. maybe it would be a good thing first to uninstall all the nvidia packages that have been installed prior the installation.
