    Hi Blacksimon,
    Yes you are correct and I will fix it in the next rev (DISTRO="Knoppix 7.1" instead of DISTRO="Knoppix 7").
    Practically I verified that the two init scripts are functionally identical and I did not import this cosmetic detail.
    Thank you very much for catching this.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Ryumbeke,
    just a question:
    Does 7.2.0 run VMware 10 well, with no patching etc?
    I gave up the efforts to get Workstation 8.1 to run on 7.2.0.

    VMware Workstation 10 and Knoppix 7.2.0

    Hi Capricorny,
    Yes, the kernel modules of VMware 10 (for both the workstation hypervisor and the Linux tools)
    are much better and do compile without problem with the kernel 3.9.6 of Knoppix 7.2.0.
    I just regret that Vmware removed the video recording option from the workstation menus.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Knoppix 7.3.0 "universal" minirt_730.gz init ram disk

    Hello,
    After finding out that the knoppix-terminalserver of Knoppix 7.3.0
    is rejecting the 64bits config because different kernel modules
    need to be loaded, I modified the init script to fix this issue and
    created some kind of a "universal" minirt.gz replacement which
    can be used for all boot configuration: normal cd/dvd boot,
    usb boot, hdd boot (including from ntfs), pxe boot (nfs or smb),...
    I also added some other very useful modules when running under
    virtualisation like vmware: BusLogic.ko mptbase.ko mptscsih.ko
    mptspi.ko and of course the ptp.ko pps_core.ko besides all the
    network 32 and 64 bits kernel modules for the pxe network boot.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Greetings, Gilles.

    I'm looking forward to an 'After CeBIT' version of Knoppix 7.3, and do not have the CeBIT version.
    Do you know if KK plans to include an accommodation of your good works in that version?

    I know your minirt.gz is versioned 730, so I expect it might NOT be universally applicable to 7.3.x;
    is that the case? -OR-
    Would you expect your minirt.gz to work with any 7.3.x that shows up?

    Thanks & Best Regards

    I sure hope so but I don't know.

    The minirt is really Kernel dependent: so as long as the same 3.13.0 kernel is used, the same minirt can be used.

    Greetings, Gilles.
    Would you please remind us how to decipher a Knoppix minirt.gz?
    I've lost the old reference I had for this.
    Thanks.
