How to boot in Linux?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi friends,

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?

  • Do not is a 'Safe level' default in Linux. Rather, there is what is known as 'Levels of implementation', which is inherited from Unix.
  • Services of Unix are associated with run levels. the most basic services are in the initial run levels, and additional services are built on the highest levels of execution
  • Boots from a Unix system, increases their levels of execution and services for each run level are initiated prior to increasing to the next level of run.
  • Therefore, the equivalent of a 'safe mode' on a Unix system is to boot to only a specific level of execution: run level 1: single user root only.
  • This is the distribution application specific charger, but the system using your currently must provide documentation for this (or Google just is).
  • Note: since the XWindows GUI and network services are initialized in higher levels of execution, access to the system to runlevel 1 is by command line (so it can access the system even if the GUI environment is broken / crashing).

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.
