First Look at GoblinX 2.6 Mini

Filed under

GoblinX is a Live CD distribution based on Slackware and its primary goal is to provide a functional and easy to use desktop, yet beautiful and pleasant to use by users with any level of Linux knowledge alike.

GoblinX uses the concept of modular live CD, allowing you to build your own live CD with only the applications and packages you need.

Once you burn the ISO to a CD and boot it, you’ll see the boot menu which provides a few boot options to choose from.

You can use it as a Live CD but it’s pretty annoying to have to wait for it to read the CD for every action you make and also, there’s the free space available which is basically your RAM and on many systems, that isn’t more than 100-200 MB of space. So if you want to take full advantage of this interesting distribution, my advice is install it to hard disk.

Learning The Linux File System

Before we get started, let’s avoid any confusion. There are two meanings to the term “File System” in the wonderful world of computing: First, there is the system of files and the directory structure that all of your data is stored in. Second, is the format scheme that is used to write data on mass storage devices like hard drives and SSD’s. We are going to be talking about the first kind of file system here because the average user will interact with his or her file system every time they use a computer, the format that data is written in on their storage devices is usually of little concern to them. The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
