1  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Internet connection suddenly fails after two months on: August 11, 2008, 17:17:55 PM

Can you please make
Code:
sudo pisi up
and please have a look in the following Threads:

http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=20.msg33#msg33

http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=721.0

Perhaps this are helpful for you.

Greetings

Andreas,

I could only do a sudo pisi up with an active internet connection, so I made an ethernet connection. That one works fine. When I then did a sudo pisi up, I got the error "no signature found" for 3 of my 5 repos. What does that mean?

When I looked at the threads I noticed that starting the wireless connection as root might work. However, how do you do that? In Pardus you cannot logon as root. And when I run "sudo network-manager", that does not work either. You can only start the network manager from the command line as user. So I am kind of stuck on this one.

Also, my other laptop - a Fujitsu Lifebook, also with Pardus and also after the latest updates - shows a connection problem, too. When I want to connect, the authorization window does not form properly, but is grayed out, so that I cannot type the password and I cannot connect. So, I am stuck here, too. 
2  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Internet connection suddenly fails after two months on: August 10, 2008, 01:29:52 AM
Hi,

After having used Pardus 2008 for two months on a daily basis in an office, my wireless internet connection suddenly failed. It used to connect during start-up to our encrypted wireless signal without a problem. This morning I got the message: "Connection failed - authenthication failed". So it seems that it sees the signal but does not get an IP address. I rebooted several times, I tried to delete the connection and set up a new one, but nothing worked. There was nothing wrong with the signal, as other computers (Windows) connected and also another Linux distro on my computer connected OK. So something in Pardus has changed suddenly. The only changes I made recently is to install some upgrades. Any suggestions as to what I could do to get connected again?

Hello,

please make in Console

Code:
sudo pisi up

The problem could solved with it.

Andreas

Andreas, this seems to have solved it. However, when I ran it, all I saw for my 5 repos was, "Packages up-to-date". So, it is not clear at all what the problem was.

4  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [solved]Internet problem after installing all upgradable packages on: August 02, 2008, 17:40:40 PM
Last Thursday there were many upgradable packages in the package manager. I installed all of them on my two laptops running Pardus 2008 (a Fujitsu Lifebook and a MEDION). I noticed some improvement: no more Firefox freezes and my Nvidia sound card in the MEDION is now finally working. However, on the MEDION I have a new problem: the Internet connection drops after a few minutes. The network applet still shows that it is connected to my wireless signal, but Firefox, e-mail, etc., no longer work. The only way to get reconnected is to restart the system, but after 5-10 minutes I have the same problem back. Does anybody have an idea what could cause these drops? Interesting is that I do not have this problem with the Fujitsu Lifebook.

Andreas,

Thanks for these threads. I followed them and I fixed the D-bus problem. I installed gdm and all the Gnome packages. I had XFCE installed earlier and I see it as choice when I log in. However, I do not see Gnome as a choice. How do I do that so that I can choose between KDE, XFCE or Gnome?

There is one more repository but only for Pardus-2008.

Who Gnome desktop wants to test, can add these repo.
Pardus-2008 and Contrib repositories must be added.
Code:
sudo pisi ar gnomeproject http://pardus-gnome.prj.be/pisi-index.xml.bz2 -y
All Gnome packages under Gnome section in Package-Manager and gdm package must be installed.

After Installation on console:
sudo service kdebase off
sudo service gdm on
and restart
or
install another kdm theme and choose it.
create a new user and login with gnome
Greetings

Andreas,

I tried that, but when I attemtp to install the gdm package I receive a "D-Bus Error Package Manager" What is that? Any suggegstions?

I hope a bug report can solve most of the problems.

Completely my opinion, because I wrote a lot of Bugs and many Bugs are now fixed. Smiley

Greetings
Andreas

Good to hear that you agree, Andreas. How do we get hold of these bug fixes such as pisibul and the Firefox freeze. I do not see them in the package manager yet.

did you try Kanotix, too?Huh?
Its debian-stable-based and a good support with a very good hardware-detection....

No, I did no try that one. My philosophy was initially - being a newbie in Linux land - to try all the big names first, Fedora, OpenSuse, Ubuntu, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, etc. How well are they suited to really replace Windows XP? None of them really performed well and consistently over a lenghty period of time of heavy use in an office. Since there are more than 500 Linux distros available, I then kept watching Distrowatch.com and tried every new one that came out (in at least the RC or final version). I was hoping to find what I would call a 'jewel'. I believe I found two, Sabayon 3.5 and Pardus 2008. All others were incomplete, did not recognize hardware well, or began to show defects soon after use. I am now comparing Sabayon 3.5 vs. Pardus 2008 head-to-head and Sabayon seems to be the loser. Although it is very comprehensive, it has given me some problems forcing me to re-install it three times. Pardus has remained perfectly stable with only the minor irritations I mentioned in my previous post. With a little additional polishing it can easily become the best Linux in the business, I feel.

Hi,

I am the only Linux user in a small office with various desktops and laptops running Windows XP. I have two laptops on my desk (a Fujitsu Lifebook series and a Medion system) and they communicate between themselves and the Windows computers (file exchanges, etc.) I have been a fan of Linux for 5 years now and I have been looking for the Linux system that does 'everything' that we need in a professional office, is easy to install, is easy to use and, most importantly, keeps doing that for a long time. Most Linux distros that I have used work fine initially, but after heavy daily use something suddenly stops working, or the the system does not want to start one morning. And I have tried around 15 systems, including the well-know ones. Even Ubuntu has that problem, I found. It is a great system, but after a few weeks of heavy use, it began to show problems that I cannot solve. The forums are not always helpful for finding solutions to such kind of problems.

The purpose of this message is to list the problems which I have seen so far with PARDUS 2008. Several have been reported by others as well and some have been reported as bugs. Yes, I find Pardus 2008 the best and most stable system for general professional use (so far), but there are still some problems, which I have not been able to solve.

- The compact-flash dirve on my Fujitsu is not seen by Pardus 2008 and having the CF disk inserted delays booting by  3 minutes.
- My soundcard on the Medion (a Realtek system) does not work; also reported by others; reported as bug by others; the Intel card on my Fujitsu works fine, however.
- I have two wireless internet connections, one at work (encrypted) and one at home (non-encrypted); Pardus 2008 has difficulties connecting to the right one when I move the Fujitsu system between home and work. The other laptop stays in my office at work and connects perfectly to the same wireles signal every morning.
- I like Abiword for a word processor, but it is nowhere to be seen in the repositories, it seems. Any ideas? Abiword does not download as an easy to install package from its own website.
- I cannot tether my AT&T 8525 PDA to the laptops with Pardus 2008, as the required software (svn) does not want to compile properly. It does that very well in Ubuntu and Sabayon, which I also have on my Fujitsu. It gives me internet connection with up to 600 kbps download speed in cases where there is no wireless signal around. Pardus 2008 would be a great system if I got this to work on the Pardus 2008 partition also.
- There is a bug in the pisibul version for Pardus 2008, also reported by others. As a result, it does not work.
- Firefox 3.01 freezes often, especially when you want to play an animation (also reported by others). I have never seen that same effect in other distros. One can stop the freeze by hitting Ctrl-Alt+Esc, but this problem needs to be corrected.
- Why Pardus uses the pisi format for packages is a mystery to me. There is no other Linux system that dos that, to my knowledge. The use of the package manager is very easy, but installing *.deb or *.rpm or tar balls is not so eay. Why not use synaptic (apt-get) that many other distros use? It is much easier and it enables you to install non-official packages from dozens of repositories. Pardus 2008 has only two repositories.

Thes are some of my experiences with Pardus 208 which is my system of choice now. I would really like comments or suggestions.

Hello wiliam5,

I understand, that you have the subversion package from the Repo.

Than you can build the pisi-package with pisibul.  Wink

Greetings
Andreas

Andreas,
pisibul does not want to run on my systems. I downloaded version 0.2.4.10 and installed it. When I try to run it as root on the command line, I get:

Fujitsu2 william # pisibul
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pisibul",
line 2, in <module>
    import pisibul
ImportError: No module named pisibul

In Programs -> Uitilities -> pisibul, it does not work either. I also tried an older version, but the results were the same. How do I install pisbul so that it works correctly?

1.  /configure

Andreas,

I did that but configure is not recognized. I get "no such file or directory" if I type "/configure" or "./configure".
Do you have any other suggestion?
12  Assistance / Software / Tethering my PDA using Pardus 2008 on: July 22, 2008, 01:16:45 AM
I want to use my PDA with Windows Mobile 6 as a broadband modem for connecting to the Internet. I know how to do that, but it does not work on Pardus 2008. I got it working on Ubuntu and one other distro. One needs to have the subversion package "svn" (available from the Package manager) and the package "make", which can also be downloaded. The first step is to run svn and connect to an internet site. That installs a directory usb-rndis-lite. You cd to that directory, then you run "make", a clean-up step and then "make install". That is all. It should work then. The problem with Pardus 2008 is that it does not get through the "make" step. IInstead of printing 14 lines, it stops after the second one with the message: "no such directory; stop; error 2".

Why would it work in other distros but not in Pardus 2008? Is the "make" build package different perhaps?

Hello william5,
for other users it would helpful, if you can give a output of your modified Pardus cupsd.conf-file.  Wink
I edit your Thread as solved.
Thanks and greetings

Andreas: yes, consider it solved. Here is the output of the modified Pardus cupsd.conf file. Most of it is already in the default file, but the first 10 lines or so are critical. They have been modified + a few others.

Hello,
have please a look in this Thread
Greetings
Andreas

I studied this Wiki and found that opening port 631 for CUPS Linux-to-Linux printing is really a matter of having the /etc/cupsd.conf configured right. It is tricky if you are not experienced. I also studied the cupsd.conf file on Ubuntu which does work (see my previous message) and I finally ended up copying the Ubuntu file as much as possible to the Pardus 2008 cupsd.conf file. It is working fine now and I can use all printers in my office on both Pardus 2008 computers, one directly and the second one wirelessly via the first one. If anybody is interested in getting a copy of this modified Pardus cupsd.conf file, let me know.

15  Assistance / Hardware / Re: How to open port 631 for Linux-to-Linux printing? on: July 10, 2008, 04:44:04 AM
I want to print from a Linux client to a Linux server. The latter has Pardus 2008. I used the Remote CUPS Server for the protocol and entered the IP address of the Pardus system and port 631. If the server runs Ubuntu, I then see all the pinters available on the Ubuntu server. However, if the server runs Pardus 2008, I get "unable to connect to <IP address> on port 631". Also, when I run nmap on the client I see that port 631 on the server is listed if the server runs Ubuntu, but not when the server runs Pardus 2008. So, the question is, I need port 631 open for CUPS printing to the server, but in Pardus 2008 it is closed by default. How do I open that port? Note that this has nothing to do with the firewall, which was turned off.

I now compared the output of nmap using localhost and the actual IP address of this server. The result was:

using localhost:

Quote
PORT     STATE SERVICE
22/tcp   open  ssh
111/tcp  open  rpcbind
139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
199/tcp  open  smux
445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
631/tcp  open  ipp
5800/tcp open  vnc-http
5900/tcp open  vnc

Using the actual IP address of this server:

Starting Nmap 4.62 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2008-07-10 02:32 EDT
Interesting ports on 192.168.0.4:
Not shown: 1709 closed ports
PORT     STATE SERVICE
22/tcp   open  ssh
111/tcp  open  rpcbind
139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
5800/tcp open  vnc-http
5900/tcp open  vnc
Notice that port 631 is only open in localhost. It should also be open in nmap of the IP addrees. Can anybody shed some light on this?
