For those who are interested in 3D acceleration when running Knoppix 7.0 as a Vmware guest
since Linux guest graphics are currently very badly supported by Vmware (they are working on it):
as an example, a compile (as the Linux kernel) can take up to twice the time in a single cpu config
depending on the Linux console window size as half of the cpu time is used for the window scrolling !
So I played with the 3D acceleration of the Knoopix 7.0 guest in the beta VmWare Workstation
and I got it working more or less after adding few very new packages: mesa, vmwgfx, ...
This is obviously an experimental preview and is not recommended for normal use.
Please find below as info the script I used. Hope this helps.
