Here are my tips in case you want to replace Pardus by another KDE-OS, in this case its's Mageia.
My presumption is that you have a separate system and home partition.
At installation make sure that the  system partition / is formatted and the home partition /home is not formatted.
This last one is very important.

After the installation make the following changes in the media sources of MCC.
  • Remove DVD image.
  • Enable Nonfree mirrors + Nonfree Updates.
  • Enable Tainted mirrors + Tainted Updates.
Install (set category to All)
  • flash-player-plugin
  • flash-player-plugin
  • drakwizard
  • unrar


(new Wiki) will take care of Kmail transformation. Wink

Another very promising looking distro is Manjaro (http://blog.manjaro.org/).

It's a user-friendly derivative of Arch (and having been experimenting with it for a while I can definitely say that that's not an oxymoron). There are still a few rough edges as might be expected for a first beta release that's only been out in the wild for about 3 weeks.

I am aware of at least one other Pardus refugee active on the Forums (and a few others I'm sure I remember from here though no longer active). There are also several active forum members from Turkey, but the names are not familiar.

The default desktop is XFCE, but a KDE version is available and works well.

@James T

I use Manjario with Xfce and is perfect  Smiley

in my personal blog http://deblinux.wordpress.com/2012/08/27/manjaro-linux-y-xfce-4-10-aterrizan-en-deb-linux/

Manjaro forum http://forum.manjaro.cppdev.de/index.php/topic,237.msg1281.html#msg1281


Now use three distributions: SolusOS Gnome, Manjaro Xfce and Pardus KDE  Smiley

I don't think it's always possible to quantify what makes a distribution special.

IMHO Mageia is a serviceable distro but it doesn't have that something extra that I can't quite put my finger on.

Before we start any flame wars let's remember that although it is reasonable to assume that everyone here found/finds Pardus to be a solution to their needs,  we may well have liked different aspects of it and hence will find that our most comfortable alternative places are different. By all means chip in with your favourites but remember it's only personal preferences not an absolute "this is where we should all go".

about mageia:
- mind-closed team
- it is only an updated mandriva 2010.2 with no significant added value (no beautiful artwork, no rolling release, ecc...)
- the international forum is in the hands of 3 or 4 people, and if not think as their most often they respond poorly

about pclinuxos:
- small team but they love what they do, and do so with the few resources available
- more added value to mandriva instead of mageia (not beautiful artwork but it's rolling relase, they working hard on their packages)
- the forum is very friendly (texstar, the boss, is a true companion)

OK thanks for adding those aspects, although sad to say/notice that at this moment your first and third remark regarding Mageia to some extent hold true for Pardus itself too  Sad What and what is not the current Pardus developemntal team and how big or small it is is absolutely totally unclear for people outside the core people, and the friendly and dynamic atmosphere in this forum has gone months ago....the last half year from the outside, for people not directly involved, Pardus is on a dead track.

I have used PCLinuxOS before, and I did like that one, quite fast and without complications running dostro, but..as you state..also there a rather small developers team.

I totally agree with

I don't think it's always possible to quantify what makes a distribution special.

I don't want start a flame-war. I've only reported my experience with the mageia team and with pclinuxos one.
This weeks i'm trying to find the replace for pardus in case anka will not be released but i have not found.
The few distro that can be a choice are pclinuxos, chakra or opensuse (maybe).
Nothing is like pardus.
