View Full Version : 'Freeduc' install

03-10-2003, 01:56 AM
I have 'Freeduc' disk from a magazine which is apparently Knoppix but with xfce instead of kde. I am trying to install it in HD but when I do sudo /usr/local/bin/knx-hdinstall it appears to enter the hdinstall script but it's in German. On the 2nd screen it seems to be asking for a hda to
install to but I can only do OK or Cancel...no option to tell it to go to hda6. Then on the 3rd screen it says 'Das Skript wird beendet' & it exits.
What's it doing & how do I get it to install on the HD?

Go to here (http://www.itm.tu-clausthal.de/~perle/knx/) and either download the .38 script or do what I did and open the script and extract the files to /ramdisk/home/knoppix and the open a console and sudo ./knx-hdinstall and you will have the english version.

Hopefully whoever put out the distro has not modified their knx script and it still will work.

I'm dnloaded the .38 script & extracted it. It's in windows 'My Documents' . I can mount the 'C" drive & run the script but it still doesn't work because it can't find the 'template' file which is also in windows My Documents instead of wherever it is looking for it. Where is it supposed to go?
May have trouble copying it anyway, the file system appears to be read only. I tries to copy the hd-install script to /usr/local/bin to overwrite the one which is there but it wouldn't let me.

You have the CD and are booted from it so just extract both files to the ramdisk that the cd is using ie. when it asks you where to extract the files on knoppix this would be /ramdisk/home/knoppix then run the install script. To find out the directory to extract the file to open a console and type pwd enter. Keep the console window open and after you have extracted then go back to console and ./knx-hdinstall enter and the script will work do not leave out the ./ or the german version will start.
