    Install GNOME 2.28 (and network-manager) on Knoppix 5.3.1DVD

    Hello. I installed KNOPPIX 5.3.1 DVD on HDD.
    Now I want to install network-manager (gnome) but i can't!
    I tryed with apt-get, with synaptic, with kpackage, it does not work. I also tryed to install the dependencies, manually, one by one..
    It always sems to stop at python or some packages from python. I tryed to remove them manually (because the package was always stopping at their removal), but i encountered other problems. I tryed to upgrade python, remove python packages (doh!), tryed to remove some x-window-managers, and session managers, nothing seems to work. Because all the problems, I had to install it on WMvare, and I made a copy of the knoppix newly installed then I replace it after I get an error. I'm doing that for a while, i think i copied the image files in WMvare for at least 50 times.
    Please, if someone can help me, please do!
    #edit: I also tryed with the hint to use only unstable sources. Tryed to install gnome, again, same result!

    I managed to install GNOME on knoppix DVD 5.3.1 installed on HD
    Unfortunately It needs a newer kernel. Still, it works, but udev gives one error, but it works.
    I have written how i did for the newbies like me... This is now, maybe it will change, but you have one start...
    I assume that you already have internet connection and all comands must be run as root
    The libxklavier12_3.9-1_i386.deb and libgnomekbd3_2.26.0-1_i386.deb will be downloaded from debian squeeze (testing) because are missing (for now) in unstable i386
    ------
    Code:
    vi /etc/apt/sources.list
    and comment all lines except unstable ones
    Code:
    vi /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig
    and modify default desktop-in gnome (from kde)
    with kuser make knoppix user member of netdev (or use command line) (to be able to use network-manager)
    reboot
    You have gnome now, but not 2.28
    Then i removed the packages that stopped the installation in my previously attempts (with an error) when dpkg tryed to remove them.
    Code:
    apt-get remove python-wxgtk2.* python-vtk python-wxversion pioneers*  libqt4-dev libquantlib-0.8.1 emacs* konqueror*
    Update
    Code:
    apt-get update
    Then I installed some packages that also stopped the installation with an error on my previous attempts when dpkg tryed to install them.
    Code:
    apt-get install libcucul0 libsasl2-2 libauthen-sasl-perl libjack-dev libquantlib-0.9.7 bogofilter
    Then i started to install gnome and his dependencies
    Code:
    apt-get install dpkg
    apt-get install libgnomekbd-common
    apt-get install libgtk2.0-0
    Now download and install the missing "testing" packages from squeeze.
    Code:
    cd /home/knoppix/Desktop/
    wget http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/pool...3.9-1_i386.deb
    wget http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/pool...6.0-1_i386.deb
    dpkg -i libxklavier12_3.9-1_i386.deb
    dpkg -i libgnomekbd3_2.26.0-1_i386.deb
    Install the rest...
    Code:
    apt-get install gnome-screensaver
    apt-get install xorg
    apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-all
    apt-get install gnome
    Change default windowmanager and sesionmanager
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config x-window-manager
    and choose metacity
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
    and choose gnome-session (auto)
    Then I made some modification because some programs not worked (network-manager)
    Code:
    sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor
    Then make network-manager able to manage your connections
    Code:
    vi /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
    and change
    Code:
    [ifupdown]
    managed=true
    (optional)
    Restart it with
    Code:
    sudo killall nm-system-settings
    Reboot
    Now it supposed to work
