 Hello,

 Second testing release of Pardus 2009 is ready ! Like always you can
download this release from Pardus FTP servers at

http://ftp://ftp.pardus.org.tr/pub/pardus/kurulan/2009-Beta/

 For a smooth installation experience, please verify the checksum of
the ISO files after you have downloaded, use quality CD's and burn the
CD in DAO mode with 16x speed.

 Latest stable release of KDE family version 4.2.4 is available with
enhancements for Pardus. Pardus 2009 Beta comes with many new
features of base tools PiSi and COMAR, the installation program YALI,
Pardus manager family and KAPTAN.

 The new version contains up to date packages like
 
 KDE 4.2.4
 Linux kernel 2.6.30_rc8
 OpenOffice.Org 3.1.0.6
 Mozilla Firefox 3.5 RC1
 Gimp 2.6.6
 Xorg 1.6.2pre
 Python 2.6.2

 and many more in just one CD.

 Many more managers we have been using in 2008 are now ready for Pardus
2009. Managers now share the same look and feel, have many
optimizations and new features. Also there is a new tool in town,
System Manager, which can be used to manage system wide preferences
easily through the graphical interface.

 Package Manager has been through a major refactoring, and is now a lot
faster and easier to use. There are also new fatures like;

 - delta package support, decreasing the download size of updates from
40% to 98%
 - what is new support, allowing easy access to newly installed packages

 With the Beta release, new Pardus 2009 graphics are slowly hitting
the repos. Some of Cihan İncebel's photographs are available for our
users both in standard size and widescreen size.

 From Alpha release to Beta, there have been many more optimizations
and features are integrated to Pardus 2009, including improved
installation speed in YALI, language and desktop setting fixes in
KAPTAN, etc.

 Known issues of Pardus 2009 Beta is as follows;

 - Depending on the locale, the time of the system may be set different
during installation.
 - With some ethernet devices, if the connection is set to get the IP
address atomatically, the connection may not be established at first
try, but is successful after a retry.

 We remind you that this is the second testing release for Pardus
2009. Not all of the features and optimizations of the final release
are ready in the beta release. As this release is within the fast
developement cycle, there will be lots of package updates towards the
stable release.

 We welcome you to report us the bugs you encounter and feature
requests in our bug tracker http://bugs.pardus.org.tr

My first bug for Pardus 2009 Beta  Sad
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=10073
It isn't a bug but a hidden feature.
Have a look in the pictures bellow.
After activating [1] the picture on the right will appear.
And after activating [2] Auto Login can be selected at [3].
I don't think it is very logical !
But at least the option is present.

Edit: And I think it will change in the next release.  Wink Have a look in the bug report.

ALT+F2 -> sysinfo:/

If you come to this beta from the alpha version, update after update, like me, you must install sysinfo package.

I get the error

The process for the sysinfo protocol died unexpectedly
on two different versions of new installed Pardus 2009 beta. Sad

The third bug is about  Missing "Select all packages in this category" option in 2009 beta.

Not so much a bug, but I suggest that be a purple/gold KDE colour scheme,  to match with the colour Pardus is using for (in YALI, Kaptan etc) this release.

I had the same phenomenon, once instantly and once the sysinfo page turned up normally as we are used to, but after several seconds the white screen you are referring to came up again.

sysinfo is under K-menu (Kieker style)--> Tab Computer --> System Information (it does not show sysinfo as text in a subtitle though)

Also I am wondering where I can check whether I have the proper video driver instaleld, I miss the current Display Manager, and have noticed the settings section (formerly TASMA) has changed.

A minor annoyance is the clock being used in the taskbar: it has no option in the settings to set it to 24hour, I really dislike am/pm time watching< i am very much used to e.g. 23:12 instesd of 11:12 pm....

I also noticed that in YALI you can choose to add other OSs in the GRUB being installed, I checked that one, but after installing only Pardus 2009 beta came up in GRUB.
However when I visited the Boot Manager in settings it was really very very verya easy to add my old WinXP to the GRUB menu, I did not have to enter all specific boot settings, I only ahd to give it a name and give the proper partition for the OS to boot.

I also had this happen. It was pretty scary at first. Did you make a report?

Also I am wondering where I can check whether I have the proper video driver instaleld,
The answer is in
sysinfo is under K-menu (Kieker style)--> Tab Computer --> System Information
At the bottom-right you can see the video driver in use.
And I am sure that the video driver issue (nvidia, ati, etc 3D-support) will be solved before the final release,
Otherwise Pardus will have a major issue.
That's why I didn't make a bug about this issue at this moment.
You can always make a bug report, and see what the response is.

A minor annoyance is the clock being used in the taskbar: it has no option in the settings to set it to 24hour, I really dislike am/pm time watching< i am very much used to e.g. 23:12 instesd of 11:12 pm....
To solve this:
System Settings > Regional & Language > Country or region: (change)
and select Europe, ........   etc.
Restart the computer and the time, money ....... has been changed.
The above is general KDE stuff.

And to change the language:
Open Package Manager.
Search for "-nl" or "-de" or "-fr" or ......
Check  at least "kde-I10n-..." and "glibc-locales-..." (and openoffice)
Install these packages.
And change the language in System Settings > Regional & Language > Add Language.
And change the language in OpenOffice.  Grin

And "System Information" is only available when you have the Kickoff menu and NOT with the Classic and Lancelot menu.

Do a search with
Quote
xorg
in Package Manager and you will find the nvidia drivers.
And I expect that the process of (semi)automatic installation of these drivers will be in one of the next release !  Huh?

I installed module-nvidia185 and xorg-video-nvidia185 for the GeForce 6200 and after a restart the nvidia driver wasn't active according to System Information (2.1 Mesa 7.5-rc2) !
The contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf is
Quote
Section "ServerFlags"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "VideoCard"
EndSection
How do I activate this nvidia driver ?  Huh?
