ones there was a beautiful mountain lion named pardus
it became extinct
because we're just stupid

i see a similarity with that mountain lion and a certain penguin

thank you all for very skillful help and a nice time on the forum!
but i'm signing off, leaving the building so to speak.

regards,

owiknowi (also a former governmental i.t. developer)

p.s. for those of you who want: you know where to find me.

Oh, i am really chill .. but also very curious Wink
But the only thing is, and that also help people, .... give information.
So yesterday there was some news form the official front .. and that helps a little.

I love Pardus, tried so many distros, and believe me ... Pardus is one of the best, if not the best (that works out of the box without extra repos, etc)
Every day i put a lot of energy in Pardus ... building packages, try to give information, etc ..
But if in about 2 or 3 months the news is .. we only continue with the corporate edition or we stop ... how do you think the community feel?

And are the signals good?
- They drop so many developers (and they are your pardus brains, and you never drop your brains, or do you?).
- In the official mailinglist we see spam.
- Only one official message with not much more news then we already know.

Believe me .. i also work for a government ... so there are already plans about the future of Pardus.
And they only simple thing they have to do is share the plans, and i think there are 4 options:

1) Pardus and Coporate Pardus
2) Only Pardus
3) Only Coporate Pardus
4) Nothing anymore

Inform your community every day, that is all we ask for.

Read this comment on a Pardus review:

http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/09/28/pardus-2011-2-review/

Pardus 2011 is absolutely amazing. But it has one fatal flaw I think that keeps people (like me) from switching to it. The software repositories SUCK. Plain and simple.

I mean come on, Linux Mint is stable,or ubuntu, or Kubuntu, and I can still run Windows stuff with it (via WINE),or use the amazing Picasa.
Nope, can’t get those in Pardus. Its a shame too, because everything else is perfect.

If they can fix this issue, I think over time, they could topple the Ubuntu and Mint giants in terms of popularity. There would be no reason not to use it then. So please fix it
*DON’T cry over anyone who won’t cry over you*


I guess a larger repo is a must. But version 2011.2 is not so bad I think.
Most stuff I using is there.

If you use the pardsuser.de repo you get almost all the software you want.
And they did not use this in the review, even on Ubuntu or Mint or what else you
need users repos to get sometimes software you like to use.

A mistake many do who use Pardus 2011.2 is they forgott to do a Pisi update directly after the installation process.
Then it be only about 900 packages in the repo if you search and many of the most popular applications missing.
(maybe what happend with the guy who write the comment?)

After a Pisi  update the packages are about 4500, and that not so bad. Wink
