I (Peter Eriksen) will be updating this page as I'm setting things up. I didn't find anything similar in the documentation, so here goes. It applies to release 011, and hopefully some of the things are built into the upcomming 012 release.
~]mount /Mount/Floppy ~]cp /System/Settings/X11/XF86Config /Mount/Floppy/
If networking with DHCP doesn't work on the LiveCD try this:
Add user peter to the system group "sys". The user could also be added to a group wheel, but I guess, since there is already a group sys with user gobo in it and no group wheel, then it's natural to use sys as the administrator group.
~]usermod -G sys peterBelow only applies to GoboLinux 013 and earlier as it is default since GoboLinux 014
Next give peter root privileges by configuring the sudoers file.
~]visudoAdd e.g. the following line or something similar
%sys ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL
~]ls -l /Programs/Glibc/Settings/localtime lrwxrwxrwx 1 gobo gobo 56 2004-12-16 13:42 /Programs/Glibc/Settings/localtime -> /Programs/Glibc/Current/share/zoneinfo/America/Sao_Paulo ~]sudo ln -sf /Programs/Glibc/Current/Shared/zoneinfo/Europe/Copenhagen /Programs/Glibc/Settings/localtime ~]sudo ln -sf /Programs/Glibc/Current/Shared/zoneinfo/Europe/Copenhagen /System/Settings/localtimeIt might be relevant to set the zoneinfo of the system clock.
~]ls /usr/share/zoneinfo(Suppose you want to use GMT)
~]ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/GMT /etc/localtime
If the X configuration file from the LiveCD was saved on a floppy, copy it to the installation.
~]mount /Mount/Floppy ~]sudo cp /Mount/Floppy/XF86Config /System/Settings/X11/XF86Config
~]sudo cp /System/Kernel/Boot/grub/menu.lst /System/Kernel/Boot/grub/menu.lst.backup ~]sudo vi /System/Kernel/Boot/grub/menu.lst
If remote ssh programs doesn't work it might be because of the terminal settings. In that case a workaround could be:
~]echo $TERM xterm-color ~]export TERM=xterm
~]sudo vim /Programs/Compile/Settings/Compile/Compile.confPut your name in compileRecipeAuthor="" and uncomment. Comment the line "http://cscience.org/~gobo/recipe-store". Use http://www.gobolinux.org/recipe-store/ instead.
Updating the GoboLinux Infrastructure
It might be wise to upgrade Compile and other programs before attempting to compile or install other programs

In GoboLinux 0.14.1 you will first have to compile a custom kernel without Xen virtualisation as that is unsupported by NVIDIA's proprietary driver. Once that is done, just do:
Then edit /System/Settings/X11/xorg.conf. You need at least to change 'Driver "nv"' into 'Driver "nvidia"' outcomment "Load dri" if present.
