I have a lot of problem loading my Linux operating system.
If it were windows, i could have tried the bios menu, or i could have run in safe mode. But since it is Linux, i don't know what to do.
Someone please help me.
Is there any similar option in Linux?
How am i supposed to boot my computer?
How to boot in Linux?
Hi Cindy, Well I could give you five easy steps that can make your Linux boot faster.
Here they are:
1. Utilize a window manager that is lighter, so as to decrease memory use up. You can use KDE and GNOME, they are most commonly used window managers today.
2. Disable the less necessary services. For example, your having Linux only as a desktop, so dispatch services like sendmail, httpd, and others. If you are not using Bluetooth, then disable it. Just try to see and deselect the services you wont need.
3. Make use of a text-based log-in window. With this one, you just have to log in and proceed to start. The graphical one consumes more time.
4. Utilize a lighter Linux distro. You may want to use Puppy Linux and Arch because they have a lesser boot time.
5. Disable the less necessary modules of kernel.
Use Bootchart so that you will be able to recognize the kernel modules that are installed on your system and you'll be able to find out what's happening while your computer boots.
