    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try this out as soon as I get time for it, and report the outcome. I also tried an ordinary install of 7.7.1 under Workstation 10.X, using flash-knoppix. Seems to work fine, but I won't go further along that line until I have a remastered ISO to start from. Knoppix ran just fine with the 64-bit kernel. The host, Debian Jessie, runs with 3.16 kernel as default.

    Knoppix 8.0.0 as a VMware 12.5.5 virtual machine guest with 3D & optional persistence

    Hello,
    Please find below the latest Knoppix 8.0.0 minirt for nfs, samba and iso boots (32 & 64):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k800/minirt_800.gz (17.7MB)
    and the VMware 12.5.2 virtual machine guest zipped with 32/64 bits boot, 3D and optional data persistence
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/vmk800_4352439.zip (63.4MB)
    As usual feedbacks are always welcome.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    PS: Please find below the last working VMware Tools 10.0.6 cloop file (also used for Knoppix 7.7.1):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k800/vmt4352439 (34.7MB)
    For some unknown reason the latest vmware tools distributed with VMware 12.5.5 cannot be installed properly.
    But the older vmware tools installed in the above vm guest do work just fine also with the latest VMware 12.5.5.
    I am still trying to understand why the latest tools cannot be installed as I am getting the error message below.
    Please let me know if you have a solution.

    ...
    Making sure services for VMware Tools are stopped.

    Failed to stop vmware-tools.service: Unknown unit: vmware-tools.service
    See system logs and 'systemctl status vmware-tools.service' for details.
    Failed to get load state of vmware-tools.service: No such property 'LoadState'

    PS: the work around to install the latest VMware Tools 12.5.5 is to use the option
    --skip-stop-start when starting the vmware-config-tools.pl
    in order to avoid the following error: (cf: https://communities.vmware.com/thread/561909)

    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...
