    Could your .. recombining script, be integrated in such a way as to allow a user with a running modified Knoppix USB system, to 'simply' press the "install to usb" button, and have the 'new' system installed on an empty USB drive, with all the personal modifications recombined;
    Short answer: recombine on the fly isn't possible.

    Oh well, it was just a hopeful thought. Thanx for the reply, Werner.

    Hello,
    I finally got my Knoppix 7.0 DVD with the magazine shipped to me by a friend in UK.
    I guess there nothing confidential in a md5 hash of the iso file
    I created from my purchased DVD using dd from the running Knoppix 7.0:
    dc87b42bbd1b60099e33790b5798dd11 *knx70.iso
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    BTW, I did post here my Knoppix 7.0 modified minirt and virtual machine:

    Knoppix 7.0.0 DVD: "Knoppix testcd" fail sha1sum

    Hello,
    As reported by Edwin Evenson in the Debian-Knoppix mailing list:
    "KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX failed sha1sum on 2 copies of this dvd.
    Anyone else have this problem?
    TIA
    Ed"
    I confirm that the sha1 of my /KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX file is:
    a5d6cce5250c0a03ad6f501cd0d8b5eb09a48c5c */KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX

    instead of what is in the /KNOPPIX/sha1sums file:
    c873541e03834e9b9574089bf3461e8a8b0f4931 *KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX

    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Hello,
    Please find below the content of the file broken-files.txt after running
    the following command from a konsole when running the Knoppix 7.0 Live DVD: "sudo tar cf - /KNOPPIX/ 2> broken-files.txt | dd of=/dev/null"

    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: /KNOPPIX/dev/log: socket ignored
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/amd64-mingw32msvc/bin/strip: Read error at byte 0, while reading 2560 bytes: Input/output error
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/bin/amd64-mingw32msvc-strings: File shrank by 65932 bytes; padding with zeros
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/bin/amd64-mingw32msvc-strip: Read error at byte 0, while reading 2560 bytes: Input/output error
    tar: /KNOPPIX/var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged/pipe: socket ignored
    tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

    Interestingly copying the same DVD content from a Windows 7 machine to a hdd does not create any error and
    running the same command within a virtual machine using the iso created from the DVD gives the exact same errors:

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ sudo tar cf - /KNOPPIX/ 2> broken-files.txt | dd of=/dev/null
    18583120+0 records in
    18583120+0 records out
    9514557440 bytes (9.5 GB) copied, 124.68 s, 76.3 MB/s
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ cat broken-files.txt
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: /KNOPPIX/dev/log: socket ignored
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/amd64-mingw32msvc/bin/strip: Read error at byte 0, while reading 2560 bytes: Input/output error
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/bin/amd64-mingw32msvc-strings: File shrank by 65932 bytes; padding with zeros
    tar: /KNOPPIX/usr/bin/amd64-mingw32msvc-strip: Read error at byte 0, while reading 2560 bytes: Input/output error
    tar: /KNOPPIX/var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged/pipe: socket ignored
    tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$

    Please find below the link to the md5 file of the /KNOPPIX content using the following command (skipping the /KNOPPIX/dev directory):
    sudo find /KNOPPIX/ | grep -v /dev | xargs md5sum >> knoppix.md5
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/...noopix_md5.zip

    Does Knoppix 7.0 support USB3.0, DVD-RAM, and/or UDF/DLA access for optical media?

    The sha1sum result from the torrent iso matches the one for the iso generated from Linux Pro Magazine: 08a031b548cba80fa83a12ab803661799a15900c. They both fail bootable self-test, however.

    Hello,

    the first time I noticed a problem with the DVD was when I tried to use the feature of copying it to HD from the running Live system. It always failed towards the end of the process. And GRUB is not being updated. When I update GRUB from a different linux installation it finds KNOPPIX and puts an entry into the boot menu. I can start it from there.
    Then I ran knoppix testcd and it fails. I tried testdvd and it fails too. Then I thought I have a broken copy so I wrote to Linux Magazine and they sent me a new copy. But it has exactly the same problem.
    My machine has 4 GB of RAM of which I have set 1 GB for the video card. My CPU is AMD E350, which is an APU (CPU+GPU).
    I tried this on a laptop with 6 GB of RAM and it has the same problem.
    I am wondering whether I need more RAM in order to get a successful testcd/testdvd?

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    My sha1 is the same as yours:
    a5d6cce5250c0a03ad6f501cd0d8b5eb09a48c5c */media/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX

    I've been following this thread for over a month now, keenly waiting for Knoppix 7 to appear on the mirror sites, having been using 6.7.1 since it was released.

    Is it expected to have been released by now, or could there be anything that's delaying it, i.e. known bugs etc..?
