    For the DVD case, is this this most likely kind of "syncing" update? To keep the package versions on CD and DVD releases in sync?

    Greetings, Blacksimon.

    Initial observations on 703 CD-version, after a few hours:

    CD-version is new, and a nice adjunct to 702 DVD-version.
    IceApe replaces IceWeasel; fiddleware may be different.
    3d has some frame-loss problems, easily reset via MainMenu.
    Lovely ability to stack compressed images.
    Cured an ntfs oops for Brasero present in 702.
    Something new about KDE time and date.
    2 Gb SD-card LiveUSB boots-to-on-line in 34 seconds.
    b43 change-over from wl for Broadcom wifis still works for me.

    No release notes yet; these will show at site listed in Post #1, most likely.

    No release notes as far as I can see, and it looks very much like 7.0.2 on first sight.
    This is written from CD version running under qemu. To test and to install to flash. Used the command (in the CD download directory)

    Code:
    sudo qemu KNOPPIX_V7.0.3CD-20120-06-25.iso -hdb /dev/sdb -m 1024
    and used the "Install Knoppix to flash disk" menu item in the virtual machine. Seems to work just fine.
    No 64-bits kernel with the CD, but it still comes with the basic applications. And Synaptic is there, so it's just to start installing whatever is needed.

    PS: It's Iceweasel 10.0.5 I'm running, 10.0.4 on 7.0.2.

    IceWeasel vs IceApe

    I installed flash via Install-Components, which is the 'preferred' method.
    It may be that causes a changeover from IceWeasel to IceApe as well.

    IceApe build ID is dated 6/08/2012.

    Installing flashplugin-nonfree with apt-get avoided the conversion from weasel to ape. I'm a bit unsure about a couple of things. Synaptic wouldn't run because of some obscure complaint, had to run aptitude update first to get it going. mkfs.ext3 didn't work out of the box, had to install it anew. (And don't blame bad burning here, md5sums were OK, and the image was never burnt, but run in a VM as described.) Still, there may be some USB write errrors.

    It doesn't seem to be easy to add a 64-bits kernel the "official" way.

    Greetings, Capricorny.

    I had about the same experience as you with Synaptic; however after a few minutes with
    Aptitude, and with a single apt-get-install, when I returned to Synaptic it was open for business.
    I've alerted Klaus K.

    Need to know more about your mkfs.ext3 experience.
    mkisofs works like a charm for me, stacking things away as I do.

    First thing I tried was knoppix64; maybe you can write-up a cheat-sheet for us to use on this.

    Do a testcd if that's possible with your setup.

    Testcd: If ISO md5sum is OK, and there never was a CD anywhere close?
    64-bits kernel: It should be properly installed as a .deb package, like 32-bits 3.4.4 is. I won't recommend surgery, even if I may end up doing it myself.

    My worst disappointment so far is that the init trouble with squashfs persists. It hangs in the udev hw recognition/init - always on squashfs images (I've tried a few versions, they all behave alike here), but never with cloops. And, strangely, not with squashfs and the somewhat mismatched 3.0.4 kernel. With patience, it solves itself, Knoppix always gets up and running, but it takes a looong time. I'm writing this from squashfs remastering of the CD - installed ca 2.4GB of programs, so KNOPPIX.sq is now ca 1.9GB.

    And of course two VMware kernel modules refuse to compile again. I'm pretty sure it's because I paid. Seems that LibreOffice is up for an upgrade, Synaptic tells me so. Somewhat bad timing there.

    Yep.
    'knoppix testcd' is a good way to check out a LiveUSB, too.
    Try it on your virtual whatever.
