Hiya Maurice
 This will sound silly, but have you updated  your Pardus at all yet ?


( BTW, if the reset button needs a new home , give me a call   )   Grin

Hi Maurice,
 Grin
I checked the specs at the newegg online e-tailer for the specs of your CPU "64 bit support - yes" for Kentsfield core, that is why I suggested trying the 64 bit version of Pardus.  Now that is using my guruness.  Wink

Yes but I have only one repo and maybe I should add the German one.

That reset button is very handy. I remember my first machines way back in the 60s -- C64, Amiga et al --  all had them, then they disappeared for a long time. My wife's latest Dell lacks one too.

Indeed it is Lisa. Smiley and thank you for it.

But the result of my uname -a

Linux pardus2011.2 2.6.37.6 #1 SMP Wed Mar 30 16:31:56 EEST 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

seems to indicate 32bit only.

I would like to get the 64bit version but am a bit wary still. Huh?

Thanks Anglo. I downloaded it and it added quite a lot of new stuff.

Almost.  Roll Eyes

I tried it 4 times - on 3 occasions it closed down properly but the fourth time it failed.

Going back over my files on Pclos forum on this subject I find that it was not perhaps the pae kernel that did the trick. I was using 2.6.38.7 and I was advised to try 2.6.33.7pae. It seems that reverting from .38 to .33 was perhaps what solved the problem.

I apologise for not checking this before now.

Looking for a kernel on the repos I have used the search term 'kernel' but found nothing. What is the right term please?

Try with

Code:
pisi info kernel

or if you want to list packages in repos then

Code:
pisi list-available pardus

I didn´t find any other kernel then 2.6.37.6 so I don´t know how will you downgrade it.

Hi Maurice,
I found your thread at pclinuxos and found it informative and found the link posted there about a similar bug for RedHat in kernel .40. 
Sorry to say there is no kernel .33 available in the repos for Pardus 2011.  I was trying to see what had changed in kernel 2.6.37 at 'kernelnewbies' website and how it compared to kernel .33, but that is beyond me. 
What file system did you use to install Pardus?  What are you using in PCLinuxOS?  You might try Ext4 if you are not using it.  I'm out of ideas. 
As a side note, with Pardus 2011 installation disc, boot it up and you will find handy utilites: Memtest86 (I let memtest run for about an hour, it ran several tests in that time period and you can quit (esc) when you want, and Hardware Info that will show what motherboard you are using.  When you posted "Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 5044", I have no idea what that means but it doesn't sound like a motherboard name.
And yes, as zvacet said.   Cheesy  no other kernel than 37.
I would suggest a bug report to pardus including a link to this thread as well as to the one at pclinuxos.

@ Maurice

Code:
sudo pisi it lshw

Then

Code:
su
and after entering password

Code:
lshw

You will see your motherboard model in top of output.Maybe that info can help someone to solve your problem.

Don't know how to put in double quotes but thanks for your post too zvacet.

And, my word Lisa, you're going to a lot of trouble. I use ext4 file system on both Pardus and Pclos. Actually I've decided to give the 64bit version a try and am downloading it right now. I'll transfer it to a usb and install it on another partition and keep my present installation - just in case. Roll Eyes

Hopefully my next post will be a whoop of joy.

This is going to take a bit longer that I thought. Huh?

I've downloaded the 64 bit version but, for some very odd reason, all my usb sticks, which vary from 1 to 16gb, are showing up on the screen as 1.1gb and all of them showing empty. I've never encountered anything like this before.

Betcha bippy if you examine the usb sticks with gparted you'll find that the 1.1 gig is a DOS  partion......linux doesn't much care what type  partiton  you use on the stick only the size matters......
