Hi, for all of you who are using the Live CD:

at reboot, the file /etc/fstab is dynamically (re-)created by Knoppix, and the klik-specific entries are lost. So you have to add them back after every reboot. Fortunately, there is an easy solution:

Simply put in your knoppix.sh (search the forum if you don't know what knoppix.sh is):


cat >> /etc/fstab <<\EOF
/mnt/app/1/image /mnt/app/1 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/2/image /mnt/app/2 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/3/image /mnt/app/3 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/4/image /mnt/app/4 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/5/image /mnt/app/5 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/6/image /mnt/app/6 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/mnt/app/7/image /mnt/app/7 auto user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
EOF

Alternatively you can use Kanotix 2005-01 which has all set up for you.

The knoppix.sh you refer to is located wherein? How does one add to a .sh?.
The knoppix.sh file is a simple shell script. When Knoppix boots, it scans the KNOPPIX directory on the CD for a knoppix.sh file (or if you use the myconfig=scan cheat code, it will also scan other devices on your system). If it finds this file, it will execute it. Windows users can think of this file as an autoexec.bat script. You can basically put any series of commands into this script and Knoppix will execute them upon startup. (Cited from http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/wlg/5964)

Probono;

The download obtained in klik via wget was initially as referenced in the previous post.

The download received in recent days is as follows: (edited to enable users)
================================================== ==============================
/tmp/app/1/image /tmp/app/1 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/2/image /tmp/app/2 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/3/image /tmp/app/3 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/4/image /tmp/app/4 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/5/image /tmp/app/5 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/6/image /tmp/app/6 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0
/tmp/app/7/image /tmp/app/7 cramfs,iso9660 users,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0

================================================== =============================
The klik files downloaded from the klik repository, i.e., galculator and Opera respond properly.

NVU on the other hand requests :/root/.zAppRun: line 127: /tmp/app/2/wrapper: No such file or directory....................

Nero.cmg produces error:
================================================== ===================

I have received error messages describing the need for /mnt.

Are these throwbacks to the original setup perhaps?
