    Greetings Werner & kl522

    I've got my new Knoppix 6.7 LiveUSB running.
    Kernel is 2.6.39.3 #21; desktop background is new; Chromium replaces IceWeasel.
    adriane not on menu, but lots of /user/bin/adriane components.
    mis-behaving aumixer applet on my install. Flash not working for my Chromium; is for IceWeasel.
    otherwise much like old-faithful 6.4.4. Was hoping for a built-in re-mastering option.
    CD version really fills a CD with 730.7 Mb.

    ps

    Knoppix 6.7 still uses networkmanager, but now goes from start-of-boot to wifi-on-line in 52 seconds.
    Best in this regard of any LiveUSB I know of.

    It fits on a standard 700 MB CD-R (which may contain up to 737280 bytes). Flash should work OK if installed via the flashplugin-nonfree Debian package, though you have to enable the plugin in Chromium on a per-page base (click on the icon in the address bar).

    Greetings, Herr Knopper.

    I've discovered most of what I didn't know at first about Knoppix 6.7.
    It is really a nice distro, and even an improvement over 6.4.4.
    It is the only distro that anticipates (both) my laptop's display & wifi.

    I do have some second thoughts, however:
    1..Chromium seems like a backward step, relative fo Firefox 5.
    2..It would be nice if there were a LibreOffice Lite, that just gave us
    ...calc and write, say for 2/3 the Mbs of the all-up suite.
    3..I'd like to see a remastering menu item ala PCLinuxOS that would
    facilitate remastering for the intellectually challenged.

    Best Regards.

    May I know why you think so?

    I may have to do this sooner or later, since space is tight on the CD.
    However, it will not save too much space, since the largest part is the Libreoffice core.

    What should a remastering menu do, exactly?

    Just adding your own packages should be fairly easy, using the overlay feature in an USB installation. Rebuilding the compressed part, on the other hand, is surely not a beginners task, and I don't think this can be done easily with just a few clicks.

    Regards

    Welcome to Knoppix forum. I am particular amused by Klaus Knopper coming to this forum who is registered since 2002 but the status is a junior member. This forum is particularly hostile to new comers due to anti-spamming measures.

    My Knoppix 6,7 Chromium still will not do flash even after update synaptic & re-install. I like IceWeasel better anyway & have exchanged these.
    My LXterminal & root terminal will not hold preferences unless I add the 'optional' LXDE package with synaptic.

    LibreOffice seems to be a full-monty version to keep up with the Joneses.
    Apparently all the extra dimensions don't add much space over and above just calc & write.

    First rate, snappy LiveUSB, a trifle better than 6.4.4, but that was already superb.
    Hidden adriane capability needs some explication.

    I don't know of a changelog, but this DstroWatch table lets you compare 6.7 with previous versions:
    http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=knoppix

    This table indicates Firefox 5 to be an option with 6.7.
    I was unable to verify Firefox 5 as an option with my CD version of 6.7, even opening up all possible repositories.
    I had found Firefox 5 to have a few problems in Ubuntu Unity, so I'm not that anxious about this.
    For example, it would not retain preference changes in font maxes & mins and disabling of url underlines.
