    Some one-liners for Knoppix 6.4.4 LiveUSB

    Some One-Liners for Knoppix 6.4.4 LiveUSB made from LiveCD:

    /etc/X11/Xsession, change line 77 to read
    exec >"$ERRFILE" 2>&1 # was originally exec >>"$ERRFILE" 2>&1
    Cuts back on accumulation of hidden file ~/.xsession-errors.

    Defined /etc/X11/Xsession.d/15x11-synaptics as
    synclient "TouchpadOff=1"
    One-line config file disables laptop touchpad in favor of external mouse.
    I made mine root:root, since the other Xsession.d files were so.

    Add two one-liners and a comment to /etc/syslog-knoppix.conf
    to reinstate /var/log/kern.log and /var/log/syslog:
    # Add back kern.log and syslog Note: tab separates the two fields.
    kern.* /var/log/kern.log
    *.*;auth,authpriv.none /var/log/syslog

    I use the following line to let me know when /etc/rc.local is done.
    aplay -vv /usr/lib/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/gallery/sounds/ok.wav

    Depending on where you live, changing URLs for repos in Synaptic
    from '.de' to '.us' may speed up some downloads. Look under
    Preferences/Synaptic/Settings/Repos/('URI' must be German for 'URL')

    sylinux.cfg, change the first line to read
    DEFAULT knoppix no3d edd=off fromhd=/dev/sdb1 nonetworkmanager
    Disables Compiz, Network Manager & edd testing; points to KNOPPIX
    location on USB. All these help make 6.4.4 more responsive or help
    get on-line quicker. Of course, you need an alternative to Network
    Manager for this to really play out. I have mine; it's just a few
    lines added to /etc/rc.local.
