Props to Pardus Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2008
It's my habit to download and install in vmware new distro releases and distros that I have not installed before. Well, yesterday I downloaded Pardus and am most impressed. Impressed enough to take it out of vmware and install it on my computer. Anyways, as good as they are, I'm surprised that they are not more popular! So here I am spreading the love, and if you are like me and like to install distros and play around with them, then try Pardus and let me know what you think.
Linux Distro: Pardus
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 19, 2009
MTE has a brief but interesting article on Pardus, a Linux Distro maintained by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey.
It seems rather nice from a usability stand point, I haven't tried it yet.
Anyone have any experience with it?
Sharing Drives from Ubuntu with Arch Linux and Pardus
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2009
I have 3 Linux boxes in my house, 1 Ubuntu 8.10, 1 Arch Linux running KDE 4.2 and 1 Pardus 2008.1.
I have a 1TB drive in my Ubuntu box which I have got my music collection on. This drive is mounted permanently in /media/sda2 and has an icon on my Ubuntu desktop.
Now my daughter's PC is the Pardus box and my son's is the Arch Linux box and they want to be able to play the music on sda2 through the network.
I have tried setting up the share through NFS, but alas I cannot install nfs-common on the Arch or Pardus box as that file doesn't exist (I think arch has something like nfs-utils) and both boxes refuse to connect to the share.
So I thought I'd try the Samba route. I right-clicked on the sda2 folder in /media and select the "share" option, but it refuses to share anything, which I assume is to with permissions.
I don't want anything fancy, just read permissions. I have posted this in the Arch and Pardus forums to see if they can shed some light as w

I've been testing Pardus Linux (www.pardus.org.tr) for a couple of hours now, using vmware. It's on version 1.0 now and soon will go to 1.1 believe. Default is in Turkish, but I think it has English support as well. They are aiming for the gov. & home use of Linux.
So far, it seems ok. Although a little buggy, the package manager (called "pisi", meaning "cat" in Turkish) is fast and behaves like dpkg / urpm. The distro has also a repo, though it is small.
kde is used as a desktop. minimum requirements are fairly high (218mb ram, 1200mhz procesor).
the only thing I didn't like is the behavior of the devels and participants. I guess I'm too much use to Ubuntu?? Some of them seem to be rude and close bug reports you send very fast.
This distro has no Kurdish support, and seems not to be interested in it at all. When I suggested it to be added, a flamware almost got started. But I cannot be sure if all the devels have a "nationalist" (rea
Pardus is an interesting OS

I'm writing this from Pardus Linux, and I must say that it's an interesting distro. Speed at first was average at best, but now is about average. Fonts are dead-on and the theme is very attractive, giving the whole distro a very professional feel. Configuring fonts is another story. The settings I select appear to reflect relatively, but the font sizes aren't consistently interpreted by the system. Yesterday I installed the 2007.2 beta and I have yet to run into any bugs (cross my fingers), unless you count the odd English word misspelled. I don't think that any English spellchecker came installed, and I can't find one through Pisi, the package manager.
The package manager is decently responsive, its searches go at an average speed, and it's adequate as a whole, but once you select to install or upgrade packages, the service is painfully slow. I imagine that this may be because the packages are likely hosted in Turkey...Package selection is very limited, and I'm very disappointed th

Pardus 2011 introduction.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 5, 2011
I dont know if anyone here have tryed Pardus 2011? I use Ubuntu 10.10 mostly, but if I want to using a distribution with the KDE desktop I can recommend Pardus 2011:
Its a userfriendly distribution that "works out of the box" with preinstalled mediacodes.
Similar to Linux Mint. So give it a try.
Dualbooting Ubuntu and Pardus with GRUB2...Pardus no show?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 23, 2011
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed and used to dual-boot Fedora, but I replaced Fedora with Pardus.
After the install, I went into ubuntu, and did a sudo update-grub. It detected my Pardus 2011 install there. When I rebooted, it did not show up in my grub2 menu however. I went back to Ubuntu and did it again...then checked the grub.cfg, and it is not there. I have read that Pardus uses a grub legacy.
How can I get Pardus into my grub2 menu?

Trouble with dual booting kubuntu+pardus grub2 doesn't show all options
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
I originally had kubuntu on my entire hard drive, then I wanted to install pardus. During the Pardus installation, I told it to shrink the space given to Kubuntu, then install the pardus bootloader onto its own / directory. Now when I run sudo update-grub from ubuntu (I'm logged into a unity 2d session, but I don't think that's relevant) it only picks up kubuntu. Here's the output of the boot info script:

Is Pardus Linux dead....
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 9, 2012
Well, from what I have been reading it looks like there will be no Pardus Linux 2010. This somehow makes me sad. I installed this disto for my brother who does not even understand winduhs and he was supremely impressed with Pardus. For me personally their package manager - pisi was a wonder since I live in a place where internet is expensive.
I would be very happy if someone assures me otherwise.
