Thanks for all replies. I tried each solution but it appears to be a bug, as said by PhiX. So, i installed GDM and it works. However, its not a solution, only a workaround.
I will update the bug page as well.
3  Assistance / Software / No GUI autostart on: August 25, 2009, 21:45:22 PM

I have noticed that Pardus has stopped booting into GUI automatically. In fact, KDM does not start at all. I have to login to console and do 'startx'.

What is the service name that autostarts the gui and how can I get it back?

I would like to know if KDE 4.3 packages have been released (official or unofficial) and possibly, the repositories?

5  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Dual-monitor setup - laptop screen very dim on: June 24, 2009, 06:19:10 AM
This is a strange thing I have noticed. I have Pardus 2009 alpha installed on my HP 6530b laptop. I also have an external LCD monitor LP2065. When I use the laptop without the external monitor, everything is fine but when the external monitor is connected, the laptop screen goes very dim.

I have checked that power settings are ok (I am in performance mode) and I am connected to AC power when working.

Everything else works fine but the desktop is unusable because I like to have one large desktop across both my screens.

Btw, I have two other distributions (non-pardus) installed on the same laptop but I notice this dimming only when using Pardus.

I can wait for 2009 final or if someone has any idea, I will be glad :-)

Thank you.

7  General / General topics / What is Pardus? on: June 16, 2009, 03:43:38 AM
Okay, I know that Pardus is an excellent KDE-based Linux distro. However, my question refers to the underlying structure of Pardus. So far, I have used distributions that fall into one of the following packaging categories:
1. RPM - Redhat, Mandriva, openSUSE et al
2. DEB  - Debian, Ubuntu ...
3. TGZ - Slackware

Where does Pardus fit? When I look at the filesystem layout, I, once again, find it different, especially when I look for directories where startup services are listed etc.

Is there a guide for "advanced beginner"? I know that's an oxymoron, but its because I am new to Pardus but not new to Linux and Unix.

Wow ... if there's one 4-letter word for 2009 Alpha, its F-A-S-T  Grin

It seems very solid for an alpha release. I just installed it this morning and except for configuration box of the network plasma applet not showing up, I haven't noticed anything amiss yet. I am currently using the following apps on it:

Virtualbox with Windows XP VM in it

Looks great and boots very fast. The main thing I noticed (and KDE4 devs may take notice) that it logs out of the desktop almost instantly as compared to other KDE4 builds I am using.

Looking forward to final release already :-)
9  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Installer cannot determine partition table on disk on: February 19, 2009, 05:06:25 AM
I have heard a similar story from another user in #pardus - he said his partitions can be seen and accessed by windows but not during the Pardus installation. Not sure, what the prob was.

how about to make a "fdisk - l" and see if the partitions show up there
e.g. either before you start the Yali or e.g. start the live cd and do it from there

let's see if it is a yali bug or something else


Yes, I can see the partitions when I do fdisk -l in a konsole window. I've tried another distribution as well (latest alpha of Kubuntu) and it cannot see the partitions either. I also found a page on RedHat's site that mentioned a possible bug in libata ...

I don't quite understand your problem. You are at the partitionning stage of the install process, ok. But have you tried to make some partitions ?

See http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pardus:Installation2008#Partitioning_method

I have a valid partition table on my laptop. It has a Windows Vista partition (came with the laptop) and then I have created 4 logical partitions, one of them my common home directory and stuff.

One of the logical partitions is where I want to install Pardus. However, when I get to the partitioning page (Custom partitioning), I don't see all the parititions -- just /dev/sda.
11  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Installer cannot determine partition table on disk on: February 03, 2009, 23:09:20 PM

I am trying to install 2008.2 on my HP laptop 6530b. When it reaches the patitioning disk page, I choose 'Manual partitioning' since I already have multi-boot configuration on my laptop. However, on the next screen I can see the whole disk (/dev/sda) but no partitions under it.

The partition table is fine, btw, because I am writing this post from the same laptop booted into another Linux distribution!

Thanks for all replies.

PS: Using the same installation disk, I have installed Pardus 2008.2 to another laptop and it installed fine. Both laptops are different models.
12  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Pardus 2008 installer error? on: September 18, 2008, 07:05:28 AM

In the meanwhile I can confirm the same error with 2008.1 as well. I have also started a new topic for this issue with 2008.1.
13  Assistance / Laptop / Installing Pardus 2008.1 on my HP Laptop on: September 18, 2008, 07:00:38 AM
I have been unable to start the installation. I get some python error that says it could not re-read the patition table after setting one of the partitions for Pardus System files.

My laptop is a multi-boot one with Windows and two other Linux distributions on it.

So, my question is: Can I install Pardus 2008.1 on an existing partition?

Can I use 2007.3 to upgrade 2007.2 installation on my laptop?
15  Assistance / Software / screenlets with compiz-fusion on: September 05, 2007, 04:05:26 AM
Pardus is a cool distro. Lately, I got compiz-fusion running beautifully on my i810 based laptop.

Now, i want to install "screenlets" so I can have the widget layer feature of compiz-fusion. However, everything seems to have been installed except for . . .

xdg module for python.

I have searched high and low for it, on pisi, in pisibul as well as on the web, in general. No luck yet. There are packages for other distributions.

Any ideas?
