    Knoppix 5.1.1 vm with [b]on/off persistence selection[/b]

    Hello,
    Please find below an other Knoppix 5.1.1 VmWare virtual machine update
    with an on/off selection (in grub) of the data & program persistence:
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/vmk511_45731p2.zip Knoppix 5.1.1
    This Rescue mode (persistence off) will allow to run "fsck /dev/sdb2" (as a root)
    to clean a persistent partiton not properly unmounted (or after crash).
    Have fun and please give me some feedback...
    Gilles

    PS: I did not update the Knoppix 5.2 vm ... yet.

    hi there,

    im encountering one little problem in my workstation6 and ur newest vm.
    i have to run the netcardconfig script on each boot, assigning all the parameters like ip, gateway and so on manually. on other vm it connects automatically. on the ifconfig dialog it doesnt show the eth0 until i have run the mentionned script.
    i know this is probably not really connected to ur vm but maybe u got an idea...
    thx
    jeff

    Ruymbeke,

    I have been using your modified minirt.gz files ever since this thread started in order to do a Knoppix 'Poor Man's Install' on NTFS systems.

    I was recently asked whether Damn Small Linux could be started this way. I can get DSL to start from a FAT32 partition but not NTFS, presumably because the minirt24.gz needs altering.

    This got me to wondering. We are all totally reliant on you for these updates with each new Knoppix. Have you ever documented what you have altered - or is it closed source?

    Of course, I am interested at this minute to see how to change the DSL minrt24.gz. However, I shudder to think that I will not be able to use Knopix this way, should you become indisposed to provide these updates for us in the future.

    ICPUG,
    First of all, this is not black magic nor close source code, but only inclusion within the minirt boot ramdisk
    of kernel modules (already on the cd) and linuxrc boot script edits to add the double loop back from ntfs.
    The list of changes is quite long and I would suggest you to use a diff of the linuxrc scripts and a tree comparison between the two minirt.
    (This is what I do when working on a new Knoppix release) All the changes are quite obvious when you dig in the bootstrap mechanism.
    But the linuxrc boot script is quite hard to read as it is now and would need to be rewritten from scratch since it is a real patch work.
    I have asked several times Klaus to include these changes in the official Knoppix release and as far as I know, he is open to consider it.
    I do not plan to disappear any time soon and will do my best to provide updates until Klaus includes these changes in his official release.
    I worked on these improvements for my own use and since I found them quite useful, I like to share the results with others.
    Best regards,
    Gilles

    Knoppix 5.2 - VMwareTools and Free VMware Server V1.0.3

    Hi,

    i use the VMware Server 1.0.3.
    The Image for Knoppix 5.2 is only for VMware Workstation V6.
    I can´t find one for the VMware Server.

    Is it possible to transfer the Diskimage in the Server Format?,
    or can somewhere make a installation in these one?

    I think the Configuration must be functional for both Versions
    or is there some limitations for working only in VMware Workstation6?

    Thank you

    Wow, that was a fast answer.....
    Thank you. It seems to be running.

    But i am a new linux user
    First priblem i see is that there is no network.
    Vmware is configured properly.

    Is it possible, that the network card is designed for vmware 6, and not compatible with the vmware
    server version? But this is my first try - I take a look tomorrow and tell you more about my test.

    Good Night
