Linpus Linux 9.6 Installation Guide

I am reading page: 1 2 3

The next step after all the partitions have been created is to set the boot loader options. The defaults should be fine. GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) is the only boot loader supported by the Linpus installer.

Select your time zone here.

The default network setting is to use DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). This specifies how the system will obtain its IP address from a (DHCP) server. If you have no idea what this means, just go on to the next screen.

Linpux 9.6 is only one of a handful of distros that allows you to tweak the firewall settings during installation. By default, the firewall is turned off. This is one default setting, even if you have no clue what a firewall is, we highly recommend that you change. Just click on Enable firewall to change the default.
Firewall default

When the firewall is enabled, by default, the options to enable Remote Login, HTTP, FTP, and SMTP servers are turned on (enabled). For a purely desktop use, you do not need to run any of these servers. If you have no idea what any of these servers do, or just do not have a need to run them, disable them so that the firewall settings window looks just like the one below.

This is where you set the root password. On a Linux or BSD system, the root account is the administrator account, also known as the Super User account. The root password you set here will be required when you need to perform any system-wide admin task.

At this step, you are given the opportunity to set what type of system is installed. The available options are:

  • Desktop
  • Workstation
  • Everything
  • Custom

If you stick with the default, Desktop, the Linpus installer will install all the applications you’ll most likely need. So, we recommend that you stick with the default.
Installation type

One of the applications that Linpus installs is Adobe Acrobat Reader. At this step you may either accept or decline the Adobe License Agreement.

We are almost there. Here the installer gives you the opportunity to review your settings before the it starts installing the application. Verify, and click NEXT.

Now that the installer is performing the actual installation of the applications, you may just sit down and watch, or go do something else because unless something goes wrong, your attention will not be needed for the next 20 minutes, depending on the installation type your chose. Once the applications have been installed, the system will reboot for the final phase.
