As an experiment, I’ve installed the Anka “Kaya” Xfce 0.1 to a spare partition of my HD. It has worked smoothly on my hardware thus far, so I thought I’d expand on the information already provided by TicoLinux on Yoyo’s Pardus Life blog ... For those who haven’t abandoned Pardus / Anka and who are Xfce fans, you might be interested in trying out this version.http://parduslife.wordpress.com/2012/09/09/pardus-anka-kaya-0-1-test/
TicoLinux. “Pardus Anka Kaya 0.1 Test
.” 9 Sept. 2012Summary
Excellent work kalwisti, do you still installed?....works fine?
Kaya (‘rock’ or ‘stone’ in English); the “0.1“ numbering is in honor of the first official version of Pardus, 1.0, released in 2005 and based on Gentoo.
The .iso is an installation CD only (approx. 680 MB) -- there is currently no Live CD version.
64-bit version only, Linux kernel 3.2.5, Xfce 4.10, Chromium 17.0.963.33 (default browser), GRUB LegacyThis is a test (unstable) version which is not recommended for use in a production environment.
(However, despite a few minor glitches, it has peformed well on my HD partition during the past 1.5 days).Possible Installation Glitch with Nvidia GPUsNote
: Those with certain models of Nvidia graphic cards may need to use a cheatcode in order to get the Install CD to load / display properly. (In my case, “xorg=safe” did the trick).

“2011 Won’t Install
.” 24 Jan. 2011.Selecting the Repository
It has the TUBITAK repository enabled by default, so it would be a good idea to add the Anka repo and disable the TUBITAK repo (following the instructions below).http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=4366.0

(I did not uninstall the three virtualbox
-related packages before beginning, and I had no problems with updating the system or installing packages from the Terminal).
If you need a refresher on using PiSi from the command line, you can look at the Wiki:http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pisi_CLI_Usage
“PiSi CLI Usage
It is possible to install the GUI version of PiSi (package-manager
), but be aware that it will pull in a large number of KDE-related dependencies.Available Programs
A sample listing of programs which can be installed from the Anka 64-bit repo. (Programs with a strikethrough are not available in the repository):
SpeedCrunch calculator 0.10.1
Ristretto Image Viewer 0.6.0 (You will also need to install tumbler
Evince 2.32.0 (Caution
: This pulls in texlive-bin
[12 MB] as a dependency)
LibreOffice 3.4.3 [122 MB download]
Xfburn Asunder Quod Libet
One of the extra Xfce plugins I installed (I didn’t make a note of which one) pulled in a strange dependency of texlive-core
, which drastically increased the download size to over 100 MB.
Here is a screenshot of my Kaya Xfce 0.1 desktop (with the Anka “Turkalin" wallpaper):

Thanks to TicoLinux for being the guinea pig who tested this .iso
and wrote about it.
