- Included VLC AppImage does not include an icon.
- Our ISO is a standard ISO-9660 bootable image. However, our ISO dramatically differs from other conventional Linux ISO files in that ours is not a hybrid-ISO image and this means that the ONLY way to use Nitrux is deploying the ISO image using znx. We DO NOT recommend that you flash the ISO raw to a storage device AT ALL, please use znx.
- We only support booting from EFI and UEFI motherboards and not from the CSM or Compatibility Support Module or Legacy BIOS motherboards because of this, meaning that if you have enabled CSM in your UEFI to boot other systems, it must be disabled to boot Nitrux. Most Linux distributions already support UEFI boot.
- Nitrux, by default, uses OpenGL (3.1) acceleration as the rendering backend, this is to provide users of a great experience when they are running the distribution on their computers. We do recommend that in this case, testers use XRender instead. We also suggest that users don't attempt to install the guest additions from the VirtualBox Guest ISO or install the package using APT and this is because the Linux kernel since version 4.16 does already include the video driver and related modules.
