    Hi Capricorny,
    Yes this patch works great with VMware 8.0.4 and Knoppix 7.0.3.
    (I also used previous versions of this patch successfully)
    Thanks for posting the link. Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Touchpad tapping interpreted as clicking is a big time nuisance to me.

    Touchpad

    Yeah, it has it's downsides, but I think a better touchpad interface like the one used in Ubuntu and SuSe etc would make Knoppix an even better OS and widen its appeal.
    My laptop has a touchpad switch, so I just turn it off to avoid the problems like you have. I have enabled touchpad permanently with scripts on my Knoppix, and just toggle the touchpad switch as required.

    Missing fonts with NX (nomachine) windows client since Knoppix 701 (700 was ok)

    Hello,
    For some reason I have some problem with NX (nomachine) since Knoppix version 700
    where some applications as lxterminal have missing fonts (especially in the app menus)
    when using some clients (as the nx web plug-in or nxclient for windows from nomachine).
    Openx under Windows always works fine as it includes locally some extra fonts.
    Knoppix 671 and 700 are working fine but Knoppix 701, 702 and 703 all have all the same issue.
    Enabling xfs (the X font server) does not help. Running the nx client locally is ok.
    But even using the nxclient from Knoppix 671 to open a session on Knoppix 703
    have the same missing fonts issue. Do someone have any idea what changed between
    Knoppix 700 and 701 and/or how to solve this annoying problem ? (as I really would like
    to have the web java nxclient and the nomachine nxclient to work from windows machines).
    I am using the latest version of nx 3.5.0. Thank you in advance for all good suggestions.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Howto recompile the Knoppix 703 Kernel from the source and get a compatible binary ?

    Hello,
    What do I need to do in order to get the same kernel binaries as in the Knoppix 7.0.3 DVD boot folder
    when compiling the kernel from the live Knoppix 7.0.3 DVD and using the the sources located in the
    /usr/src/linux-source-3.4.4.tar.bz2 file and the .config file from /boot/config-3.4.4 ?
    I am using: "make oldconfig; make all; make install; make modules_install"
    Do I need to use the virtualbox-guest.tar.bz2 file ? How to use it with the kernel source tree ?

    FYI, I am trying to recompile the kernel to get the oprofile.ko kernel module but
    the kernel binaries are too different and the module does not load with the original kernel.
    So I would need to change all the kernel modules + the kernel which I try to avoid
    for obvious reasons. I just like to add the oprofile.ko kernel module to my custom
    patch cloop so I can use it when needed.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    I think the kernel modules are "sensitive" to a few factors, gcc compiler version is one of them. Did you by any chance upgraded the gcc compiler version ? Since you only want to get the oprofile.ko, you might want to try to compile it inside a virtual machine, using the original DVD Live CD. In that case, hopefully you retained all the factors could cause the kernel module loader to fail the sanity check.

    Hello,
    Thank you very much for your reply.
    This is exactly what I did: boot the DVD iso within a virtual machine without any update nor modification.
    It worked with some previous Knoppix releases but not 7.0.3. It suppose that Klaus did not compile the
    Knoppix kernels from Knoppix, reason for the version mismatch probably created by a different gcc version.
    I guess it will help to find out which version of gcc has been used to compile the 703 kernel.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    try
    $ cat /proc/version

    Yeah likely he compiled the kernel using an older knoppix.

    Hi kl522,
    Here you go, I remember that Klaus mentioned once that he was using an eepc for development
    and yes Knoppix 7.0.3 is using a more recent version of gcc 4.7.1-2 than the one used to compile
    the kernel (gcc 4.7.1-1) as you read below. So I need to either downgrade gcc to 4.7.1-1 or use
    a previous version of Knoppix which still uses that version of gcc. I would be nice to have installed
    on Knoppix the correct version of gcc to recompile the kernel without complication. I guess this is a
    suggestion for improvement that Klaus may consider to use on his next release.
    Thanks for your help.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles
