    No way.
    If it was a well known/understood (by us) bug, that would have been more feasible, but it is not. I suggest you rather contact Klaus Knopper about this if you absolutely want it fixed...

    In principle, uploads would be a Knoppix derivative. Which is not advisable for several reasons. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the minimal modifications would suffice for all use cases,...

    Nope. This is all about using the standard Debian upgrade tools. Which, especially over time, may be somewhat limited in Knoppix, because it contains elements from several releases. But in my...

    Just upgrade the actual graphics modules, roll the modified system into a "new" Knoppix with the remaster option from flash-Knoppix, and you can boot with knoppix no3d. Worked for me in both 8.2 and...

    Your concern is not an argument against doing what I suggest, rather the contrary. You can set up a persistent store, but you don't have to use it normally. With the NOIMAGE (if I recall correctly)...
  6. Knoppix 8.3 read-only under kvm: A feature and a bug

    For several years I have run both the Knoppix ISO-image and disk-based versions under kvm for installs, maintenance etc. The basic method works for 8.3 too, but only as far as the first flash...

    Easy to upgrade packages with persistent store and Synaptic package manager

    If you have persistent store on the pendrive, you can just start Synaptic from the Preferences menu. In Synaptic, first press the Reload button, then choose the "Status" filter and select "Installed...

    Knoppix 8.2/8.3 may need updating of graphics modules

    I have seen a bit of the same problem, but in both versions, I get the impression that it goes away after updating graphics modules. I could at first not get it to initialize graphics correctly with...

    I got the magazine by mail, DVD works fine, have the 8.3 ISO image on disk. (And two "remasterings" so far, now there are five cloop files.)
    Caveat: Mounts mnt-system ro when run under kvm, even...

    Now I have tried the "remaster" option, and it seems to me that the new overlay KNOPPIX2 is simply created on top of KNOPPIX and KNOPPIX1. Which may seem like a nuisance if you have purged a lot of...

    Update for Knoppix 8.2: The same procedure also works with Knoppix 8.2, but there were a few complications I didn't really understand. I also tried the "hybrid" direct dump option, but didn't get a...

    It looks like we can order the magazine with the DVD - at least I have now paid for it for sending to Norway, remains to be seen if it will eventually turn up. (The Docker adaptation is the main...

    What is going on, I think, is that a slightly more "advanced" form of remastering is done, where the cloop images are created subject to the 4GB filesize constraint. The overlays are collapsed, but...
  14. I haven't tried that option, but in general,...

    I haven't tried that option, but in general, remastering means creating a new compressed image, while overlays are stacked compressed file system modifications relative to the rest of the stack.
    So...
  15. Sticky: The problem with flash-knoppix not recognizing...

    The problem with flash-knoppix not recognizing drives seems to depend on the type of drive. An old, quite slow 16GB USB2 stick (Kingston DataTraveler G2) was handled straight away. But the problem...
  16. Sticky: Workaround for problem with wrong resolution detection in 8.1

    Posting this from 8.1 Poor Man's Install. For the first time, I have had to manually set screen resolution - wrong detection left me with an unusable Knoppix.
    But, as so often, the...
  17. Sticky: Procedure applied to Knoppix 8.1: It basically works

    Have just repeated the procedure with Knoppix 8.1 under Debian 8.3 live. A bit more glitches than earlier, but it has worked.
    Downloaded the ISO+md5sums and went to the directory. Kvm had no...

    Welcome to micro- (or was it nano-?) remastering of Knoppix :-)
    You can do quite a few adaptations by editing the kernel parameters. For example, doing multi-booting in a more orderly fashion.

    Setup of Devuan 1.0 with Knoppix and kvm

    Deuan 1.0 is an excellent alternative if you want to stick to the original Unix philosophy, and (like me) have gotten fed up with systemd's sloppiness towards more complex use cases.
    But it isn't...

    If you want to track system changes for reproducing them, dpkg-query may be of help. Running it with the same parameters on fresh and completed install, saving the outputs, and taking the diff will...
  22. Sticky: Script for remastering Debian 9.1.0 under Knoppix

    For the record, here is the script used to remaster Debian Live 9.1.0. Basically, it performs the aufs union mount, copies the whole thing to a directory with rsync, and then compresses the result....
  23. Sticky: Update for Debian 9.1.0 under Knoppix 7.7.1

    Installing a fully functioning live Debian 9.1.0 on the HP ProBook 450 G3 was a bit of a challenge, as the Intel 3165 wireless adapter required non-free + drivers + firmware. Using Debian 8.3.0 can...
  24. Remastering Knoppix7+: New uses of old overlay techniques

    The 4GB file size limit of FAT32 has been an important premise for KNOPPIX (and similar live distros) in the past, and it still is the main reason why contemporary KNOPPIX comes with two...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try this out as soon as I get time for it, and report the outcome. I also tried an ordinary install of 7.7.1 under Workstation 10.X, using flash-knoppix. Seems to...
