    A new kernel version hit the Knoppix repository the same day the 7.6.1 torrents went up on the tracker, so there's probably a new kernel in the latest release.

    Well, my first attempt at rebuilding the DVD iso to boot in Adriane by default was a bust. Got as far as the "Initializing Boot Sequence"(or whatever the message is) being spoken, but the Adriane...

    If the CD version isn't released soon, I'm tempted to just download the DVD and rebuild it to boot in Adriane by default. To that end, I have a few questions: -Anyone know whish file on the DVD...

    It's probably possible, though stripping the bloat out of 7.4.2 would probably be easier, though I still wouldn't recommend such drastic alterations to a beginner. On the upside, it was around the...

  10. Formatting a SDXC Card for use with Knoppix.

    Not a knoppix-specific issue, but I recently bought a 64GB SDxC card and attempted to format as ext2. Using fdisk to create a blank partition table and parted to create an ext2 partition using the...

    It has been nearly a year since the last public release of Knoppix, which coupled with a new stable release of Debian earlier this year means just about every package included in Knoppix is an old...

    Okay, did some research and best I can tell, all I should need to do is move the contents of /home to /dev/sda3 and add an appropriate line in /etc/fstab for /dev/sda3. I've done this, and it mostly...

    Latest udev hoses my system.

    In my experience, using Aptitude to make everything as auto-installed and than marking just the meta-packages you need does a pretty good job for removing the bulk of the bloat. One downside is that,...
