Tips and tricks for using Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 Flash Pen Drive
1. There is no password set for “root” and “bluewhite64” users, just hit enter whenever the system is asking for password.

2. If you want to don’t use “save changes” feature and use it as a Live System then you have to remove the “changes=” option from the boot options. This can be done at the boot menu by pressing the TAB and removing the above parameter, or, to make it permanent, by editing the /mnt/sdX1/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg after the system has started (the X is your pen drive in the system).
3. To run CLI applications that need root privileges you have to use ‘sudo [program_name]’ and for KDE applications you have to use ‘kdesu [program_name]’.
4. If you don’t want to automatically mount your HDD partitions during boot then you have to use the ‘noauto’ boot option. This can be done at the boot menu by pressing the TAB and typing the parameter or by editing the syslinux.cfg (see above at 2).
5. During the Bluewhite64 12.1 Flash boot the system is asking to try automatically configure or not the X.org server. If you choose “y” (yes) then a new xorg.conf will be created with your hardware. If you choose “n” (no) then the xorg.conf VESA (default) config file will be used to start the X server.
6. You have to restart the network settings after using ‘netmanager’ (Kmenu – NetManager) with the ‘/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart’ command.
7. On some systems, the sound is muted by default. Check if Kmix is present near the clock and left click on it and select “Mixer” to adjust your sound settings.
8. ALICE managers can be found at the “Kmenu -> System” section. Thanks to the DARKSTAR Linux team for ALICE!
