    Hi Utu,
    I did send the exact same post in the Knoppix Debian mailing list.
    I just thought that some of the answers provided by Klaus may
    already be of some interest for other forum users.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Hi, Gilles.

    I saw your note on the Debian-knoppix site today.
    Thanks for sharing your news with us.
    And thanks for whatever help you can provide to Klaus K.

    Hi there, using 6.4.4 and working well, but just wondering when we can expect 6.5 to be available? Thanks a lot.

    @ jacksbutler

    Klaus K indicated about a month ago in a note to ruymbeke that
    there'd be a Knoppix 6.5, other than the CeBIT version,
    possibly in May. Not a word since then I'm aware of.

    Need new Knoppix for kernel bugfix

    I hope the weird kworker issue that keeps cropping up in 6.4.4 (kernel 2.6.37, see, for example https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/3/30/836) will be fixed in the next release.

    Running 64 bits Knoppix, the bug is not completely destructive, though: 94% of one core is occupied with this futile activity, but the other 3 intel i7 cores seem relatively unaffected - I'm running vmware workstation with two virtual machines, and R with multiple regression on 1000000 records, and all goes fairly well. But it sure kills the laptop battery fairly quickly.

    @capricorny

    I'm not using 64-bit kernel, but I do have a weird 'cpu-run-away'
    that occurs 'sometimes' after closing a LibreOffice spreadsheet
    operation. I also have Intel graphics and 64-bit cpus. I've never
    figured out exactly what the conditions are that trigger the event.
