    Hi Utu,
    Please try the following command: "cpio -ivu --no-absolute-filenames < minirt.gz"
    Best Regards,

    Thanks, Gilles.

    What seems to work is gunzip minirt.gz, then

    cpio -ivu --no-absolute-filenames < minirt (not minirt.gz)

    Then go look at init to see what the magic is.

    Hi Utu,
    Yes you are correct. I was going a little too fast... Something like this works better:
    gunzip -c minirt.gz | cpio -ivu --no-absolute-filenames
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Knoppix 7.7.0 as a VMware 12.1.1 virtual machine guest with 3D & optional persistence

    Hello,
    Please find below the latest Knoppix 7.7.0 minirt for nfs, samba and iso boots (32 & 64):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k770/minirt_770.gz (16MB)

    PS: Please find below a link to the VMware Tools 10.0.6 cloop file also used in the above vm:
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k770/vmt3770994 (33.6MB)

    PS2: you may notice that in order to get the cut & paste and drag & drop between the guest and the host
    working properly the file /etc/vmware-tools/vmware-user.desktop had to be modified as follow:
    Exec=/usr/bin/vmware-user ==> Exec=env VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=1 /usr/bin/vmware-user

    Knoppix 7.7.1 as a VMware 12.5.2 virtual machine guest with 3D & optional persistence

    Hello,
    Please find below the latest Knoppix 7.7.1 minirt for nfs, samba and iso boots (32 & 64):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k771/minirt_771.gz (16.8MB)

    PS2: to avoid mouse problems with the automatic grab/ungrab feature
    not automatically grabing input when cursor enters the window
    it was necessary to add to the VMware config file (.vmx) the following lines:
    mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE"
    mouse.vusb.useBasicMouse = "FALSE"

    Thank you very much Gilles!
    Just a question: Is there any relatively simple way to make 7.7.1 run under VMware WS 10.X? (That's what I have got running under Debian Jessie.)

    Hi Capricorny,
    Did you just try to edit the vmk771.vmx file and replace virtualHW.version = "12" by virtualHW.version = "10" ?
    I did not try your exact configuration but this should be ok. Could you please let us know if this works ?
    Thanks,
    Gilles
