    I've got 6.3 from Linux Magazine and it did not work on my laptop with Rymbeke's 6.2 version of minirt.gz.

    There again the Live CD didn't work either - but the error were different. I'm a bit concerned since this is the first Knoppix that has not worked on my laptop. I will have to check the checksums (if they are on the DVD).

    Would it help you if I posted the initrd.gz somewhere for you to download?

    Yes so I can figure out if / what are the changes in the init boot script. (can you also add the kernel)
    Thanks to offer your help,

    Ruymbeke,

    I have posted the requested files here:

    http://www.icpug.org.uk/national/ruymbeke/index.htm

    Please let me know when you have got them as I want to remove them as soon as possible.

    I did a check of the checksums on the DVD against all the files on the DVD and they matched ok. This means that this version does not seem to work with my laptop. I suspect the intel 810 chipset of my laptop is not covered by the intel driver now used by Knoppix. I have a similar problem with the experimental version of Puppy (called Quirky). If this is the reason that Knoppix 6.3 does not work then I am somewhat annoyed it is not backward compatible with a common chipset, albeit quite old now.

    Knoppix 6.3 Kernel & init boot scrip (initrd)

    Hi ICPUG,
    Got it, you can now remove the files. Thank you very much !
    It looks like that the 6.3 kernel is exactly the same as for 6.2.1
    so my guess is that the kernel modules should be the same as well.
    The init boot script is almost identical, just a couple of minor cosmetic changes.

    So my recompiled kernel + initrd for large memory footprint (>4GB) may just work "as is", cf:
    http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...=122822#122822
    (also allow for iso boot from ntfs, network via nfs or samba + vmware tools patch)
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Thanks Ruymbeke

    That's good news. All I have got to do is find a Windows machine with 4GB spare NTFS disk space that will work with 6.3 to confirm your findings.

    Hello,
    I finally got my hands on one of the Linux Magazine Pro and got the Knoppix 6.3 DVD,
    and confirm that both my init ramdisk (c2_minirt_621a.gz and minirt_621c.gz)
    initially created for Knoppix 6.2.1 are also working just fine with Knoppix 6.3.

    Is a package list for the 6.3 DVD posted anywhere?

    It would be nice to see a package list for the 6.3 DVD. I'm particularly interested in whether gfortran has been added, since it was missing from 6.2.

    Package list

    The package list was created with the command
    Code:
    COLUMNS=200 dpkg-query -l > knx630-packages-list.txt
    and packed with zip afterwards.

    The short answer is, "libgfortran3" is installed but gfortran isn't.
