Mobirise

Thank you for installing iLinux OS!

Now that installation is finished let's take care of a few things to adjust iLinux and keep your Data Safe!

  1. Expand Disk Partition
  2. Adjust Dynamic Virtual Memory (Swap)
  3. Detect New Hardware
  4. Change Passwords
  5. Adjust Display Sleep Time
  6. Setup Local Backups with "iLinux Backup"
  7. Setup Network Remote Backup with "Deja Dup Backup Tool"

STEP 1

Expand Disk Partition


iLinux installation creates a 32GB Partition on the Disk it is installed.

The rest capacity of that Disk is Free Space and we must now expand the iLinux Partition to occupy that Free Space too.


1) Startup from iLinux OS.


2) At iLinux Log In Screen use the following credentials:

USERNAME: user

PASSWORD: 1234


3) Open Disk Utility by pressing the keys Win+P or from Section Hardware in Control Center.


4) From the Left Side of Disk Utility Window, select the Disk iLinux was installed on.

STEP 2

Adjust Dynamic Virtual Memory (Swap)


Dynamic Virtual Memory (Swap) is essential, especially if your Computer has little Physical Memory (RAM).

If you execute Demanding and/or Intensive Tasks, it is advised to Enable Dynamic Virtual Memory anyway, no matter how much RAM you have.


1) Open Control Center.


2) From Section Administration open Dynamic Virtual Memory.


3) Select the size of Dynamic Virtual Memory, keeping in mind how much Free Disk Space you have in your iLinux OS Disk.

STEP 3

Detect New Hardware


If you plan to use this iLinux OS Disk to Startup Multiple Computers, you can SKIP this Step.


In this Step, iLinux will try to Detect All Hardware in your Computer.

If something is NOT Detected, please Report it to iLinux Talk.

iLinux has many Hardware Drivers Preinstalled but this STEP is MANDATORY and RECOMMENDED for Optimum Performance of your Computer.


1) Open Control Center.


2) From Section Hardware open Detect New Hardware.


3) Read All the Instructions in the Detect New Hardware Window before proceeding.


4) Press the Button Start Detection of New Hardware in your Computer and wait for your Computer to Restart Automatically.

If your Computer does not Restart Automatically and remains at the Shut Down Screen for too long, Shut it Down from the Power (On/Off) Button. This is NORMAL for some Computers at this STEP. RESTARTING WILL BE NORMAL after next Computer STARTUP.
