Frequently Asked Questions What is this?
 This is a Linux live distribution for gaming. It will run on about any desktop computer without having to install any software.

I've downloaded it. How do I use it?
 You have to burn the file you downloaded to a CD or DVD. You can also write it to a USB flash drive. See detailed info here in the usage section.

The games crash while loading?
 Most likely you don't have at least 512MB of memory - try to configure the game to lowest grafics details, some video cards don't support all the features and let the game crash.

Can I install or copy the medium to my hard disk?
 Yes, although software was initially designed to boot from a live medium, you can now install it to hard disk easily by selecting that option from the right-clicknmenu. Be warned though that the installation will take up the whole hard disk you install it on.

How can I get a permanent/persistent home so my settings don't get reset each time?
 The following is for advanced users only: You need to create a partition labeled LGLIVE_HOME on a disk/usb device attached to the computer you boot live.linuX-gamers on. It could even be on the same usb device you boot from. To do this, use cfdisk on the device and create a partition. Then use mkfs.ext4 -L LGLIVE_HOME on this partition. The -L part is the label, it is important. Aferwards, your persistent home will be recognized on the next boot upTo do this, use cfdisk on the device and create a partition. Then use mkfs.ext4 -L LGLIVE_HOME on this partition. The -L part is the label, it is important. Aferwards, your persistent home will be recognized on the next boot up.

How does the network booting option work (right-click menu on the desktop)?
 This is a very cool option for LAN parties and demonstrations. It starts up a DHCP-, DNS- and TFTP-server and allows other network clients to boot live.linuX-gamers diskless over the network. After choosing this option, other clients will have to choose "network boot" while booting up or in the BIOS. Some BIOS require you to activate "network boot rom" or similar and change the boot device order. This way, you can serve 20 network clients with a single physical medium. A real LAN party saver!

Does this DVD destroy my Windows installation?
 No, the DVD does not touch your hard drive (unless you install it, of course).

Do I have to pay something for using the distribution?
 No, it is for free. If you think we are doing good work and you want to support us, you can donate some money using the donate button on the right hand site of this page.
