    Just in case this will help anyone else, as I always forget how to do this, even though its been explained to me more that once (thanks to those patient enough). I am putting it in my own words from...

    I haven't done anything with Knoppix 8.0 since then, and wasn't aware of the bug. I will give that a try next time I fire up that machine.

    Where can I get a copy of 8.0? It seems silly to invest lots of time working with 7.7.1 if its being replaced soon.

    Thanks...

    Don't think you are going to download it from Filenugget. Its a German company, but its a total scam, complete with fake looking google answers and $12 a month to get your credit card, and you...

    When I click on Linux Pro Magazine the only magazine it gets me to is Linux Magazine, which did come with a Knoppix 7.7 DVD, but no newer Knoppix since then. Has anyone seen or heard anything? I...

    in 7.7.1 the program you are asking about in in a package called gpointing-device-settings. If you install that you will have control of it via GUI. The persistence stuff is covered in...

    Flash drives are faster and more reliable. If you have a windoze machine you can download and then burn a USB with RUFUS. Trying to hunt problems on a 5 yr old version isn't worth the effort.

    Get a notebook cooler. I have 2 aluminum Zalman coolers that are excellent. Try the no3d option on the boot. Run from flashdrive, SSD or the hard drive. Maybe one of those will help. Another...

    I assume you have persistence enabled, otherwise you will lose what you change when you reboot, so make a small obvious change and reboot to see if it gets lost before spending much time customizing....

    I have 7.7.1 running well, thanks. Is there someplace we can download 8.0 now? Its been almost a month since the announcement.

    I got it fixed. I rebooted from the flashdrive with knoppix64 tohd=/dev/sda5 mkimage screen=1440x900 lang=en and that got it to prompt for the .img file size. I then changed a setting and...

    Thanks, fredvej. That looks to have made progress. The only thing I never saw was any prompt for the persistence file. The 15 inch screen is almost impossible to read at 3840x2160, but it never...
  20. How can I run well from the hard drive with persistence

    I have Knoppix 7.7.1. I really like the KDE games section, as it has some of my favorite games. I also hope to use the Wine, which I don't have working on any other distro. The distro looks nice...

    Klaus,

    I understand the idea, and appreciate the suggestion.

    I spent the evening looking for a good how to or example, and didn't find anything close enough that I could work from.

    You make a good point because I haven't gotten any Windows games to work under Wine, so don't know what to expect in terms of performance.

    The main game I'm trying to get to work is a Windows 95/98 game called Star Wars Episode I Racer.

    There is no such thing as a durable joystick, I don't think. The real device I like to use is a...

    Yes, Harry. I can't justify buying a SCSI or IDE DVD Burner special for the old thing.
