I would like to install the vmwareplayer, which is available for Linux as a
tar.gz package or as a rpm package.

Is it possible to install this via the console, and what are the commands to do this ?

Is it possible to give all the details, because I'm an absolute beginner.

Or is it only possible to install pisi-packages in Pardus ?

Thank you very much for your answer

Most of the tar.gz packages can be compiled and installed under Pardus. But first you must install compilation tools by typing this command in *console:
Code:
pisi it system.devel
Note that this is only required on Pardus 1.0. Pardus 1.1 comes with those tools already and you don't need to type this.

After installing that tools you need to extract tar.gz archive and compile it using these commands:
Code:
tar xzvf acrhivename.tar.gz
cd archivename
./configure
make
sudo make install


After installing successfully, cou can run the program by typing its name on the console.

*You may open a console window using Pardus menu>Programs>System>Konsole

Can you also make a pisi file from a tar file (for easy sharing with other pardus users)?

Sometimes ./configure, make and make install just don't work. In that case, you should read the README or INSTALL file to find out how to install it.

Actually, following all the instructions, I was able to install my first program in Linux: Krusader, an excellent file manager.

This was with the latest Pardus hard drive installer (not the live cd)

First, I opened a console window, and logged in as root , you do this by typing sudo su. The console will ask for your password, and you type your root password. (you won't see anything ; in Windows, the letters of your password are shown as little stars)


I downloaded "Krusader-1.70.1.tar.gz" to my desktop

I then extracted this file using the following code in the console :

tar xzvf /home/fret/Desktop/Krusader-1.70.1.tar.gz
cd Krusader-1.70.1
./configure
make    (this can take a very long time, so be patient)
sudo make install


When the whole process is finished, simply give in the name
Krusader
in the window "Run Command" (click on the panther-head below, and
you'll see all choices, among which "Run command),
and there is your new shiny "krusader", a twin pane file manager, with an exquisite "find"-command.

It lets you find files, of which you only have a fraction of the name (it will find "krusader" if you give the search string "usade")


You have to indicate the proper path however.


In Windows, I know where my files can be, but in Linux, I have no clue.
So with "Krusader", I can find my files back.

I want to suggest you all that before installing any program, search for it on here and if you can't find it there, you can isntall it with the "./configure", "make", "make install".
I am telling this, because Krusader is already packaged  Cheesy
Code:
sudo pisi bi http://pisidepo.dt.gen.tr/kaynaklar/desktop/kde/krusader/pspec.xml

Code:
sudo pisi it krusader-1.70.0-1.pisi


Note: Do not give "./configure" and "make" commands with root privileges and "make install" command should be given as "sudo make install"

Sorry, you can't. Because we're having some hosting problems there with the server Sad
I put one pisi package a day here: http://pisidepo.dt.gen.tr/paketler
You can download these packages and install them using pisi.
Code:
sudo pisi install packagename.pisi

Note: pisi can directly install from URL. So,
pisi it http://someaddress.com/x.pisi works...

edit: that pisi packages will not work with pardus 1.0. They are built for pardus 1.1.

Ok, i have worried about it's license.

Before preparing VMware player package, packager must read vmware player distribution guidelines.

Better way of distributing the player is let users build their own binary packages from source package (vmware-player/pspec.xml).

Because it asks for accepting of license during installation. By-passing this section at packager's side is not legal. License must be accepted by user.

And a wonderful job you did of it.  I am excited about the direction of this distribution.
