    Knoppix for Gamers

    We made a Knoppix together with a german game magazine. It's
    a bit hidden:

    http://www.pcgames.de/external/brows...mage_id=423720
    (see left bottom)

    http://www.pcgames.de/?article_id=336074

    It's a Knoppix 3.6 with lots of games (size about 1 GB compressed).
    It's not necessary to mention that this Knoppix is from our hands
    (of cource you may if you want . I think it's more important that a
    games magazine begins to care for Linux as gaming platform.

    Ati and Nvidia Drivers are included (they're installed into the
    RAM-Disk) and I installed a lot of games I ever wanted on a Knoppix:
    cube, vegastrike (makes only sense after installation), the demos
    from www.garagegames.com (Marble Blast, Mutant Storm, Orbz, ThinkTanks),
    Enigma, Imaze, BzFlag, ClanBomber, Gl-117, GlTron, Jump'n'Bump
    (special patches), neverball, neverputt, supertux, tuxracer,
    simutrans, battle for wesnoth, freeciv, netpanzer, pingus, stratagus,
    boson, netris and of course it's complete Knoppix.

    Perhaps you like to add this to your news section...

    Regards,
    Martin Öhler

    Update: http://www.pcgames.de/?article_id=336128

    It's only available inside this magazine (at least for now). Should people really like it.... perhaps a public version will follow.

    Indeed. So hidden that I can't find it. Eaden, do you have a link to the iso?

    OK, its 1GB compressed, so I can't burn it to a 700MB CDR. So, I could use bootfrom with a standard KNOPPIX liveCD boot from a copy on my hdd?

    TIA,

    Hi,
    No, I have no idea where to get the iso. I'm guessing someone will have to buy the magazine and upload it.

    Public Games Edition senseful?

    Do you think it would be senseful having gamers edition parallel to the "normal" Knoppix?

    Give us a hint/poll/anything...

    Ciao,

    I would certainly be in favor of it. But I would think that games that need a hard disk install should be avoided; they might as well be installed later from the network (perhaps the CD might include a list of links to them).

    knoppix with games

    I'd be a bit surprised if there aren't other Knoppices remastered for games, but I have a "Pol and Ona's Linux" which is 3.4 with all the games I could find in debian unstable.

    My kids like it OK - it gets about 30% of their game-playing attention, with the rest going to the leading brand. If anyone wants the .iso, let me know, michael.creel@uab.es
