Hi,

Live[1] and Installation[2] images of Pardus 2011 Beta release for 64-bit and
32-bit architectures are ready.  For a smooth installation experience, please verify the checksum of
the ISO files after you have downloaded, use quality DVD's and burn them in low speeds.

In this release:

* If we mention about the important feature of Beta release, first noticeable
one is YALI with renewed interface, LVM/RAID support and disc partitioning
screen.

* The boot splash of Pardus has completely renewed. 2011 release offers
richer theme support and more capable animations by using Plymouth technology,

* Pardus 2011 Beta release, coming with latest release of KDE desktop
environment, KDE 4.5.2. With this release the backbone of desktop environment Plasma, the file manager
(Dolphin) and desktop effects has become more stable and faster with a lot of
fixes,

* Firefox gets new stable release rapidly. 4.0b8pre release presents many new
features like the new interface of the browser as well as tab grouping, bookmarks
between computers, passwords and history matching, a new add-on interface.
HTML5, CSS3 and WebM technology supports are also most important features for the developers,

* The alternative web browsers such as Chromium and Rekonq are ready for the
users which prefer the alternative internet browsers other than Firefox,

* The applications which are frequently used by desktop users such as Amarok
(multimedia player), Skanlite (browser interface), KTorrent (torrent
interface), SMPlayer (video player) is installed in Beta version,

* Those who use office applications extensively, can try LibreOffice, OpenOffice's
continuation project, with improvements like Turkish spell checking, add-ons
and compatibility which are prepared by Pardus developers,

* As well as the some innovations and effects on The Package Manager interfaces,
more fast package updates and installation can be performed with the
improvements in Pisi infrastructure. Package scoring and screenshot features
which are the users' ambitions expected for 2011, now supported. Screenshot
from the web interface and voting will be done soon,

* System Settings configures Wacom tablet, Touchpad and Bluetooth devices no
longer. 2.6.36-rc7 version of Linux kernel provides support for the users who
have new computer with current hardware,

Known problems for this release:

* Shrink partition option YALI has some bugs.
* YALI sometimes does not set system time correctly.
* LibreOffice start in second run.

Keep in mind that this is a beta release and because of the fast development process, you will
get massive number of package updates as more bugs are fixed.

We'll be pleased to hear about bug reports and enhancement requests
through product of 'Pardus 2011' in bugs.pardus.org.tr address.

Regards.

Are there any mirrors? This server is extremely slow and at the moment it can't even keep a connection for more than about 20 seconds.

Right, thanks. Would be good to have some though, don't you reckon? And a torrent too? I for one, would seed it.

Well, my connection got a lot better after a few hours and I was able to download the files. Smiley

So, I want to report some bugs but cannot figure out how to get the backtrace information from it's window to somewhere else. I've seen one posted so I guess there must be  a way to do it. Can anyone enlighten me?

I realise I could do it using a VM but I can't do that on the laptop I am using for this because there is no OS installed on the drive.

kaptan did not run after install for both 686 and x86_64 installs. I can't get it to start manually either. Is there a contrib repository to add yet?

Also is there a way to add the ati driver? In past I can remember adding it through somewhere in the system settings but I don't see it now. I also can't find catalyst anywhere.

I didn't have any problem with Kaptan.
Try this:    Alt+F2 and enter kaptan + <enter>.

No.

This is still BETA Wink

In Package Manager do a search with fglrx and catalyst.
May be this the one you are looking for Huh?

Nothing happened. Kaptan is there as when I try to install it pisi says it is already there. If I try to run it from cli it craps out also. I tried running "kdesu(do) kaptan" but get told kdesu(do) isn't there. I looked for it but couldn't find it.

I installed the fglrx modules from the package manager and then ran "aticonfig --initial" like I usually do in other distros to activate it. Now Pardus stalls at the initial boot screen.

I know, I know, it's a beta. But I do like Pardus and haven't had a good install of it since I got my new ati video card a few months ago.

It seems to be a lot of trouble with this beta version:

I hope they will solve the problem to the final version.

Nothing happened. Kaptan is there as when I try to ......
My result is in kaptan.png and also in:
Quote
LC_ALL=C pisi info kaptan
Installed package:
Name                : kaptan, version: 5.0.2, release: 78
Summary             : Kaptan, Pardus workspace configuration wizard
Description         : Kaptan lets you configure your workspace on first login.
Component           : desktop.kde.addon

Can you give more info on the problems/bugs?

The installation version, from the booted USB stick:

If I try to validate, or choose any other partitioning option besides "Use All Space", it throws an exception and I can't continue. Also, I cannot capture and send the backtrace.

If I choose "Use All Space", I can continue with the installation, but then the install process freezes at "Installing mplayer".

The live version:

Doesn't boot. Can't remember the details at the moment.

And the place to report problems/bugs is: http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/

I know. I've already made an account and reported the one bug that didn't have any backtrace infomation:

http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=14853

I've seen one posted so I guess there must be  a way to do it.
Where did you see this?

But maybe the poster was using a VM.
