    Knoppix on Android phones? Ubuntu is there already..

    Of course, Android runs on a Linux kernel, Nokia N900/N950/N9 (basically) uses Maemo, which may be considered a Debian derivative. MeeGo is already up and running on several devices. And more standard Linux versions on smartphones isn't that far-fetched anymore.

    HTC Desire HD was recently hacked to run Ubuntu natively:
    http://www.pcworld.com/article/22897..._natively.html

    Why then, not introduce our really tried and true distro to the phone: Knoppix? (I have a HTC Desire Z - slide phone where I would really like to run Knoppix. I realize that getting the standard phone functions up and running may be a tall order, though.)

    But - a Wayland-based Knoppix on phones - think it might be a good idea!
    Probably, most of the MeeGo work will be usable here - the beauty of open source again.

    Hi. I think this idea, to use KNOPPIX on tablet or phone is good! (if possible)
    I see there are several ways to run linux desktop on android device.
    And i think if it was (perhaps it is?) possible to run knoppix on android device, it would be great.
    Running linux on android, is connected to some problems - have to install soft. and solve problems when it will not install. Have to root android device , and so on...
    Running ready to use KNOPPIX, would be much easier (if possible). And KNOPPIX is much more useful than android.

    For example may be it would be possible to make some app that when started will bring feeling of using knoppix?

    Or perhaps there are apps for android that will work as virual machine (virtualbox or something) and allow running of Knoppix live cd or dvd or usb?
    Modern phones and tablets exceed in power some older PC. So why not knoppix on android?

    Can some help on this?

    Thanks
    Best regards.

    Hi!

    I think it would be a really good idea to run Knoppix on mobiles, but I would prefer a solution for Wndows Phones since Microsoft does not support them anymore.

    Some years ago Klaus Knopper talked about an Knoppix version for Raspberry Pi.

    Hi! Initially it seemed strange to me that you prefer unsupported devices.
    But some time later I understood. : (((
    The truth is rather nasty. : ((


    Although we give our money for the "devices" and note - a lot of money, the "devices" remain the property of Google. And Google will not allow us to do something unprofitable for Google on its precious "devices".
    And whoever tries to do something unauthorized by Google, Google can find a way to punish him. Or buy him. As a commodity! No matter that he's a human being.
    And our money, it's not just money in the wind! Money for nothing! With the money we buy a dog leash to be controlled through it. Who will allow us to escape?
    Note also: Google, Apple, M$ and others so on. They have the same strategy. Hence they seems to collaborate. Like wolves in a pack! And if they found some one weak, They just eat him. Or buy him.
    But as wolves have no written contract, so wolves packs does not exist! (We believe in this! Such as we believe in holly commercials (holly - as ultimate truth)! The commercials keep our minds clean! ) And market economy remains stone stable "free". O yeah!


    And how is this possible?
    Well, very simple! All this is possible thanks to the very intensively and precisely cleaned and really titanic mind of the "higher being" - his majesty the consumer.


    So my question was stupid. And hopeless. And meaningless. I apologize.

    By the way, how do you see the future of Knoppix , according above mentioned wolves / consumer situation?
    I hope the future of knoppix do exist but is not as a puppy of M$ or Google or Apple ...


    Thanks.
    Best regards.
