Summary of miscellaneous parameters

DrakX made smart choices for the configuration of your system depending on the choices you made and on the hardware DrakX detected. You can check the settings here and change them if you want after pressing Configure.


As a general rule, default settings are recommended and you can keep them with 3 exceptions:

  • there are known issues with a default setting

  • the default setting has already been tried and it fails

  • something else is said in the detailed sections below

System parameters

  • Tidssone

    DrakX selected a time zone for you, depending on your preferred language. You can change it if needed. See also “Sett opp tidssonen din”

  • Land/ Region

    If you are not in the selected country, it is very important that you correct the setting. See “Velg Land/Region”

  • Oppstartslaster

    DrakX har gjort bra valg for oppstartslaster parametre

    Ikke gjør endringer hvis du ikke vet hvordan du konfigurerer Grub2

    For mer informasjon, se “Hovedvalg for oppstartslaster”

  • Brukeradministrasjon

    Her kan du kan legge til flere brukere. De vil få egne /home (hjemme) områder.

  • Tjenester:

    System services refer to those small programs which run the background (daemons). This tool allows you to enable or disable certain tasks.

    You should check carefully before changing anything here - a mistake may prevent your computer from operating correctly.

    For mer informasjon, se “Konfigurer dine tjenester”


  • Tastatur:

    This is where you setup or change your keyboard layout which will depend on your location, language or type of keyboard.


    If you notice a wrong keyboard layout and want to change it, keep in mind that your passwords are going to change too.

  • Mus:

    Her kan du legge til, konfigurere andre pekenheter.

  • lydkort:

    The installer uses the default driver, if there is a default one. The option to select a different driver is only given when there is more than one driver for your card, but none of them is the default one.

  • Grafisk grensesnitt:

    Denne seksjonen lar deg konfigurere grafikkkort og skjermer.

    For mer information, se “Graphic Card and Monitor Configuration”.

Nettverk og internettparametre

  • Nettverk:

    You can configure your network here, but for network cards with non-free drivers it is better to do that after reboot, in the Mageia Control Center, if you have not yet enabled the Nonfree media repositories.


    Når du legger til et nettverkskort, ikke glem å sette opp dette grensesnittet i brannmuren også.

  • Proxier:

    A Proxy Server acts as an intermediary between your computer and the wider internet. This section allows you to configure your computer to utilize a proxy service.

    You may need to consult your systems administrator to get the parameters you need to enter here


  • Sikkerhetsnivå:

    Here you set the Security level for your computer, in most cases the default setting (Standard) is adequate for general use.

    Marker det alternativet som best passer din bruk.

  • Brannmur:

    A firewall is intended to be a barrier between your important data and the rascals out there on the internet who would compromise or steal it.

    Select the services that you wish to have access to your system. Your selections will depend on what you use your computer for. For more information, see “Brannmur”.


    Bear in mind that allowing everything (no firewall) may be very risky.
