Static or no?

(MADCello) #1

Hello all.

I’ve just installed Linux 2 days ago, but i’m a noob.

My questions are:
Do i install normal version or static? What are the diferences?

Thank you very much!

Try the dynamic version first, only use the static version if you can’t get the dynamic one to work.

The dynamic one has many things over the static one - it’s smaller, and it’ll use your graphics card to draw the interface (it’ll still only use the cpu for rendering though). The static version will only use software to draw the interface, but it will work on some systems that have OpenGL problems.
