    ... As far as I can tell it is not a hardware prob as the hardware works correctly with WinXP and Knoppix. .... I am taking about almost 2 times better performance with knoppix. ...

    This is about the time when someone trots out that "Knoppix isn't meant to be run as a stable USB or hard drive based OS." But it could be! What I would like is the great tech advantages of Knoppix:...

    Call it a Debian-compliant Knoppix or a Knoppix-enhanced Debian, that is what some of us have been looking for. We're even willing to build it ourselves, but stripping Knoppix down until it is...

    Would this be a one-off or would you maintain and improve a separate distro? Would you take each successive Knoppix and Debiam Live release and "Re-Knoppify" it or will you do that once and fork off...

    Enter the cheatcode "2" at the beginning of the boot. You can edit the syslinux.cfg file to make this automatic. Read "micro-remastering Knoppix" available online. or if the GUI boots, open a...

    I appreciate the thought that has gone into this, and I would add my voice to those who see the utility of a minimalist knoppix. My only additional suggestion is to modularize the desktop as well. ...

    The goal is to have a flash drive that can be plugged into any machine I run into and boots into my chosen desktop, with my chosen software installed and available. That way I can carry my computing...

    I understand that. It's seems a shame to me that that is so. I also understand that there have been many derivatives of Knoppix that went in alternate directions. That is a GOOD THING. What some...

    I second that! It would be marvelous to have the HW detection and file system of Knoppix and the modularity of Porteus. I think it would be possible to do that starting with a bare bones Knoppix. ...

    I also would like Knoppix to be modular, like the slackware derivative porteus (http://www.porteus.org/). I would use porteus, but they have split their 32- and 64- bit kernels and so you have to...
  12. Has anyone created a minimal 7.0.5? Willing to share?

    I am one of those who have tried to pare Knoppix down to a minimal size, in order to then construct a customized, modular Knoppix using the ramdisk KNOPPIX 2-9 method. I might suggest, that a...

    Yes, I agree. I am taking a two-pronged approach.

    I am systematically stripping out small sections and then testing the resultant remastered KNOPPIX. This is slow going.

    I have installed...

    Can we build a minimalist knoppix from say Debian live?

    To do so would probably mean we would have to Kang (android slang) the scripts and the Knoppix deb packages Klaus created with the normal init sequence of the Debian live. I cannot judge whether...

    I'm having the very problem you describe

    I can't determine (on my own) which packages to take out of the mix. I have had some experience in the ancient past of recompiling Slackware 0.98, but no experience with modern linux. I don't mind...

    Hi Werner -

    I think we can decide who we can trust or not on our own.
    To be clear, for those who need a hand hold, don't EVER download something you don't trust.
    Thanks for your concern,...
