1  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Pardus init system on: September 22, 2007, 15:39:26 PM
I don't know about starting, but the stopping problem may come from an indentation problem: in the code you posted, stop() is indented to the level of start(), which makes it a local function in start() instead of a file-levvel function.
2  Assistance / Pardus Project / English documentation for Comar on: September 12, 2007, 13:16:27 PM
I was writing a patch to integrate slocate with cron, as some distributions do, by placing a cron job in /etc/cron.daily. I then realized that I can't guarantee that cron is available without adding a dependency.

I think that comar is supposed to help me with this, but all documentation of it (that I find) is in Turkish. Can anyone point me to a comar-guide or howto in English?

Thanks for the answer.

So the way I understand it, components are handled by repository managers, not by packagers - so when creating a package, I don't have to worry about the component where my package directory lies. Right?
4  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: I'm wondering about the Pardus Firewall on: September 08, 2007, 23:13:42 PM
It also prevents the possibility of some unauthorized program (virus, rootkit, just a misbehaving one) accepting connections without you knowing about it.

I used to configure my firewall to also block outgoing connections except for some ports, as a social service of a kind, but it turned out to be quite a hassle, for a relatively secure Linux box. On a Windows system it's a must, and all Windows firewalls do it (that I know of).

For the truly paranoid, you also have intrusion detection systems like Tripwire, rootkit scanners and such. Gentoo has an extensive security handbook that you might want to read sometime.
5  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Components in PiSi on: September 08, 2007, 21:45:23 PM
I see that every package is part of some component, and that PiSi has commands to list components. But what are they for, and where are they used? Could someone give an overview of this?
6  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Print job on: September 08, 2007, 21:27:40 PM
I think KJobViewer only opens automatically when kprinter (the KDE print dialogue) is used for printing.

Another way to handle jobs is from the command line:
Code:
lpstat -a  # shows available printers
lpstat       # shows names of pending jobs
cancel psc_1315-212 # cancel the job of that name

Hello, all.

I've just made a PiSi package for the Culmus package of Hebrew fonts, which I'd like to contribute to the community. What is the proper way to do it? Is there a development mailing list or anything?

Thanks.
