Installing GoboLinux

Installer is a program included on the GoboLinux Live-ISO that installs GoboLinux to your hard drive.

It takes care of basic configuration, package selection, and boot loader setup. It can be run from the command line or via the window manager menu.

Graphical Install

The GoboLinux Live-ISO supports a complete graphical display environment.

In most cases, the X server automatically detects the keyboard and display hardware, so you can start the graphical mode by typing:


Clicking on the top-left icon brings up a menu. Look under System Tools, select “Install GoboLinux”, follow the instructions.

Console install

Type Installer in the console. Note the capital “i”. (GoboLinux utility scripts are generally named with an initial capital and follow the CamelCase convention.)
