1  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / how to preserve time attribute on move/copy to NTFS partition on: August 15, 2009, 11:29:06 AM
I just installed Pardus on the new computer of my wife, because she cannot stand Vista and XP refuses to install from the CR-Rom provided with her previous computer. She appears to be satisfied with the functionality provided by Pardus. However there is one big problem. I prepared a NTFS partition on the hard disk to put her data, presently saved on an external USB disk formatted with VFAT filesystem. I tried two copy the files either using Dolphin, or the 'cp' command with the '-a' option to preserve all file attributes, or via a tar file extracted on the NTFS partition.
In all cases, I get an error msg stating that it is not allowed to preserve the date attribute on copying a file to the NTFS partition.
Is there a method to preserve the right time stamps ?
BTW, I formatted the data partition as NTFS in case my wife would eventually return to XP. Is it a good idea or would it be better to format this partition as VFAT ?
Thank you for your help and advice. Best regards

No I did not succeed to complete the install.
In fact with the first installation procedure "caracal caracal" I can see the bootsplash, then a grey horizontal part at the bottom with 'pardus' written on it, but I happen to be in text mode, after some blinkering of the screen indicating that xorg is trying to start.
At this stage I can type bash commands in the console, that is how I managed to peek at the errors msg on my first post.
PS. dmesg tells me that Intel 830M chipset is detected.

I forget to state that I can see the Pardus bootsplash. It seems that's the program called yali that fails to start. I guess any working xorg.conf file from another distro should be OK in Pardus provided it does not resort to some tools unavailable in Pardus (such as the pcidata module requested by the Zenwalk xorg.conf file ?)

Yes I did try the 3 install procedures available including 'minimal options', all of them lead me to the same black screen, and I cannot get back to the console: ctr-alt-backspace does not work, presumably because X is not properly running ?
This pb is specific to my laptop. I tried to install Pardus on my old desktop computer at home and went successfully though these early steps. I just had to stop at a latter step as the 3 Mo on the free partition were not enough... Hopefully in latter versions it will be possible ton install a minimal system without X and get other packages through the network (as with ArchLinux, my current distribution).

I try to install Pardus on a laptop. However the installation stops, yali being unable to start owing to xorg problems. I get many errors in /var/log/messages/Xorg.0.log:

(EE) Failed to load module "synaptics" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) intel(0): detecting sil164
(EE) intel(0): Unable to read from DVOI2C_E Slave 112.
(EE) intel(0): Unable to read from DVOI2C_E Slave 236.
(EE) intel(0): ivch: Unable to read register 0x00 from DVOI2C_B:04.
(EE) intel(0): Unable to read from DVOI2C_E Slave 112.
(EE) intel(0): tfp410 not detected got VID FFFFFFFF: from DVOI2C_E Slave 112.
(EE) intel(0): No valid modes.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

In contrast, a working xorg.conf file taken from a Zenwalk distribution installed on another partition yields only one error when used during Pardus insllation:

(EE) Failed to load module "pcidata" (module does not exist, 0)

Instead of tinkering the Zenwalk file, I tried to start installation with xorg=safe as kernel option as adviced on this forum. Unfortunately I get stuck with black X screens with no way to get back to a console  Huh?
Is there a simple way to get around such problems ? Thanks.
