Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Prepping

Now,Pardus comes in Turkish by default.But thanks to our translator(yes,me) I will show how to make it english.Now,the boot menu comes up.Press F2 to open the Language menu and pick your language from the drop-down(drop-up in this case) menu that comes up.

Step 2: Accept the Licence

'Tis GPL licence,you will be told what to do with the notes

Step 3: Select Keyboard Layout


Step 4: Do the Time Zone

Again,obvious.If the time is not correct even with the correct time zone,adjust it.

Step 5: Make the Users

Fill in the fields,check the admin thing if you want,then press create user,simple

Step 6: Pick the Root Password

Fill the fields in and click next

Step 7: Do the HDD Up

Partition as necessary,but note that Pardus requires at least 7 gigs for the installation

Step 8: Sit Back,bask in the Awesome Glory of the Explanations

Sit back,and don't have a beer while waiting for the setup.Beer kills brain cells and damages the body,like any other alcoholic beverage.

Step 9: In Use

This section was made from the request of AnarchistAsian,here are a few pics of it in use.

    Then how do you install it on broken computers? :)

    What's the advantage of Pardus over any other Linux Distro? I have ubuntu now and I like it (except it's causing me some problems!).

    This distro is a national software project of Turkey :) Just another distro of Linux :)

    Problems like what? My favorite Distro is either Ubuntu, or Ubuntu Studio.


    Lol, everytime I install linux I seem to keep wandering back to Windows. I spend a week setting it up, and then it sits, waiting in the grub menu, just dying to be selected but I just hit enter. I don't know why I hate Windows so much, but I understand it WAY better than linux. Linux is so hidden, i mean i don't even know where stuff like installed program files are, or changing settings. Yep, I'm a PC.

    Windows just makes it easy for the user. There are other o/s that are much less obvious about how they work till you get to know them, which can take months or years of using them, and it does not make them less useful. Windows and Linux are relatively simple and Linux is no more hidden than Windows. Other O/S like UNIX variants as supplied by the hardware makers, and very high end ones in that subset like OpenVMS, NSK, MVs, etc, seem even more 'hidden' than Linux until you get to know them. Each of these are very different in the way they work internally. So don't give up on Linux. The esiest way to know it is to use it instead of Windows for common tasks of e-mail, www, and file storage. I use VMS daily from the command line as a webserver, and after no more time spent than with Windows, it is not really hard to use at all. It has a window manager for ease of use like any common PC o/s, but I don't find I need to use it in my applications. Just saying don't be put off by things that are different. Each o/s is like a world waiting to be explored.

    That's true, but what was difficult for me when I switched to linux was figuring out how to install stuff. All this compiling stuff just confuses me, which is annoying because I had started to learn a lot about computers and once I took the next step, I just fell. I actually think linux is hard to use because it is too unhidden, there's almost too much information because they don't hide anything from you. It's also such a vast operating system that you really have to search to find the answer to something, because linux has an infinite amount of options once you learn what you're doing.

    Yeah, sorry, no offense, but I also don't see why this would be featured. You forgot to add the link to the website on the steps (not on here in the comments). In that case, I can make an instructable on what I feel are the 50 applications for Windows Mobile that are a must.
