A second try on upgrading to this alpha ANKA release from pardus linux org and still having problems with their server stalling on retrieving packages.  I painstakingly got the packages available the first try, and when I rebooted computer, I got a scrolling message:
modprobe fatal error inserting microcode /lib/modules/3.2.5/kernal/arch/x86_64....microcode.ko and at login, the caps lock and num lock lights were blinking and I couldn't use the keyboard.  So I started over in case it was because I had partially installed some of the updates, like the kernel and its dependencies before getting all of the updates propertly installed prior to reboot.

So, a fresh Pardus 2011.2 install, all updates retrieved for main Pardus repo. 

Then did as recommended here:
http://www.pardus-linux.org/haberler/2012/05/pardus-2012-codename-anka
same as suggested here, and once again I am getting server stalls.  I correct myself above that it only happens on packages that take about 12 minutes to retrieve, but this happens on packages that are roughly larger than 300.0 kb.  If I set my timer, it seems to happen after one minute passes.
What I have tried is removing the default nameservers from resolv.conf and used 3com/Verizon free dns instead, and that seemed to improve things just a bit, where I could at least download files less than 1.4mb, but still I would get the http error 206, as well as http error 200.  I then tried using firefox to go to the pardus linux org website, and it wouldn't come up.  I have no other problems getting packages from pardus repo or pardususer repo, or visiting other webpages, so this has to be on their side (pardus linux org).   I tried on last thing, by going into system settings>network settings> connection preferences and increased some of the values for timeouts, but this did not help.

So, just a plea to someone who can let pardus linux org know about this problem for dial up user.  I have had a similar problem a few years ago when I tried open suse and every time I tried to get updates, they would stall.  The admin of the server fixed it by increasing the timeout period as he had it narrow to prevent spam on his server.  That fixed that problem for those of us who were using dial up.  I could carry on, but this is taking forever, and I have to babysit the computer to keep an eye on when the stalls occur and do another "sudo pisi up" to continue from where it left off downloading the package, or use wget to retrieve it. 

Thank you!

Hi richdb,

Thank you very much for doing so!  I'm still experimenting with increasing those timeout values under connection preferences. I've always left them at default previously, as it is something I've never had to alter in the past, but the kde help book does suggest if one has a slow connection, to change these, but they don't suggest to what. so I am having guesses at it.  The pardus linux org site/server is the only one I am having problem with, but I was able to bring up their webpage after waiting several minutes, more than normal for most web pages.

Back to watering the garden.  Smiley

Those who cannot even do that (like myself  ) can help with the translation work.

Where to put translations? I translated ~80% of Pardus on Croatian and translation is on Transifex,but i can not add any translations.Is there another place where I can upload translation?

Hello zvacet,

You can send you translations to pisiciftligi@pardus-linux.org, and they will take care of the translations.

Ah, swooshing success this time.  I had to go on a long drive yesterday and came home to retry getting the last downloads.  Still had server stall problems but I was persistent and just kept, sudo pisi upping, to get all 181 packages.  On the first try I had managed to save all of the packages I had cached before I got the modprobe error and couldn't log in, so that saved me some time re-retrieving those. 

A very good job on the ANKA release from the pardus linux folks!  They've been busy and I appreciate there work on this.
The only thing I notice from the start is there is no entry for some applications, like konsole, unless I just can't see it because of the default black theme.  But looking at KDE menu items, there is no icon for konsole or synergy.  Synergy does start its GUI but when I click on konsole, I don't see it anywhere.  I'll look some more after I eat breakfast that is getting cold.  Coffee is hot, though.   Wink

Yes, konsole was not install standard (like a few other packages), but as you already find out,
you can install them with the package manager Smiley. Glad you got the Anka repo running, and i
have send your question about the server to the developers.

A very short English summary of Mr. Nihad Karslı's message:

PARDUS 2012 ANKA "TEST" VERSION (64-bit) is now available.

Repeat: This is only a "TEST" version. Only 64-bit. Only those who consider themselves to be experts should try it. Non-experts should be cautious. Please be patient for the ultimate, approved version to be announced.

If you try this test version, we would appreciate any feedbacks. Please send them to:

pisiciftligi@pardus-linux.org

Pardus users should never lose hope. Pardus belongs to us, the users, the people, and not to the establishment (TUBITAK), as we had already declared, seven years ago.

Following days: Upon your kind feedbacks and other further studies, FINAL SET-UP "iso" FİLE will be published.

Remain free and with love,

Nihad Karslı
Attorney-at-Law
President
PKD (Pardus Users Association-Pardus Kullanıcıları Derneği)

P.S.: The new Pardus is at:

http://paketler.pardus-linux.org/pardus/2012/testing/x86_64/pisi-index.x...

Testers should remove other depositories and instead, install the above repo. Reminder: Only 64-bit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A very short English summary of "kuftikufti"s two messages:

Allow 8-10 GB for ANKA on a free disk space. Set up 2011.2 fresh. Don't use "virtual machine". This is only for testers, not for ordinary users.

Setting-up ANKA depository:

1) Set up Pardus 2011.2 on a free disk space.

2) Start Pisi and remove "module-virtualbox-guest, module-virtualbox-guest-userspace ve virtualbox-guest-utils".

Virtualbox package at ANKA depo has problems. We are trying to solve them.

3) Add new ANKA depo:

http://paketler.pardus-linux.org/pardus/2012/testing/x86_64/pisi-index.x...

Remember: The above is a stand-alone depo. Remove others (official stable, devel, PLO) or uncheck (toggle-off) them.

OR, use the Konsole:

sudo pisi dr pardus

sudo pisi ar anka http://paketler.pardus-linux.org/pardus/2012/testing/x86_64/pisi-index.x...

sudo pisi ur

4) Upon adding the new ANKA depo, update using Pisi's update feature.

5) During update, Pisi will warn about 4 conflicts:

a) digikam - kipi-plugins

b) libkipi - kdegraphics

c) marble - kdeedu-marble

d) kdebase - konqueror-plugins

(...)

6) Approx. 1.5 GB total, 350 MB download, 200 packages update, 50 new packages.

Upon restart, choose Pardus 3.2.5 on GRUB screen. Your system should start with kernel 3.2.5 and KDE4.8.2. If you have another Pardus in your machine (your daily Pardus), you should back-up "grub.conf" files. You may need to manually add these files into the new GRUB.

ANKA depository has approx. 5,200 packages, 22,300 Pisi files, 54 GB.

Has anybody else seen this error on trying to add the ANKA repository?

Today it has been repeatable for me , and I'm not sure if the package list is corrupted, or if there's a network issue?
