    One Windows program we can all use

    Makes USB and SD Cards from isos.
    Not just Knoppix, but about any Linux you can think of,
    complete with persistent storage.

    I installed KNOPPIX_V7.0.4DVD-2012-08-20-EN.iso taken from that site in a pendrive, have the iso file and its md5sum. What have I to do for checking the file integrity? Thanks.

    Greetings, Porteno.

    I assume you have indeed installed the iso on a pendrive and have your
    computer set to boot from a usb.

    If that is so, my next move would be to see if the pendrive boots into linux.

    If it boots into linux, I would then re-boot with the cheatcode 'knoppix testcd'.
    That checks the main KNOPPIX file.

    I would then try out the distribution and see if it seems to be working.
    That is try some menu commands and work with the desktop a little.
    See if you can get the wifi setup to get on-line, etc.

    If at any point, I had any question about the integrity of the iso itself,
    I would then use a working command line to do an md5sum test on the original iso.

    You'd have to give us more information for us to know where you might be
    in this general progression.

    Thanks, Utu, for your reply. I've done all that, testcd says
    All files OK
    .
    I want now to test the original .iso file for integrity. I have two elements, the .iso file and the content of
    ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix-dvd/KNOPPIX_V7.0.4DVD-2012-08-20-EN.iso.md5

    which is 1b70a9aaab03dad5cf1545dbc3146274 *KNOPPIX_V7.0.4DVD-2012-08-20-EN.iso
    What is, please, the next step?

    • A string in that URL: 1b70a9aaab03dad5cf1545dbc3146274 *KNOPPIX_V7.0.4DVD-2012-08-20-EN.iso

    But I have no .iso.md5 file to use as an argument for md5sum.


    Thanks in advance Utu and Werner.

    Porteņo - You provide an example why it is best to use the ordinary download mirrors to obtain KNOPPIX ISO images. Everywhere, you will find the .md5 file together with the ISO. And you should always check the download before proceeding further with an ISO image.

    A safe way to do it is: Start out at the primary source, http://knopper.net/knoppix/knoppix705.html, follow the KNOPPIX-Mirrors link from there.

    On the mirrors, you will find something like:

    Code:
    KNOPPIX_V7.0.5DVD-2012-12-21-EN.iso               21-Dec-2012 22:33  3.8G    
    KNOPPIX_V7.0.5DVD-2012-12-21-EN.iso.md5           22-Dec-2012 01:52   70
