    Knoppix 7.3.0 "universal" minirt_730.gz init ram disk

    Hello,
    After finding out that the knoppix-terminalserver of Knoppix 7.3.0
    is rejecting the 64bits config because different kernel modules
    need to be loaded, I modified the init script to fix this issue and
    created some kind of a "universal" minirt.gz replacement which
    can be used for all boot configurations: normal cd/dvd boot,
    usb boot, hdd boot (including from ntfs), pxe boot (nfs or smb),...
    I also added some other very useful modules when running under
    virtualisation like vmware: BusLogic.ko mptbase.ko mptscsih.ko
    mptspi.ko and of course the ptp.ko pps_core.ko besides all the
    network 32 and 64 bits kernel modules for the pxe network boot.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    VMware tools on Knoppix 7.3.0: /mnt/hgfs shared folder not working

    Hello,
    I finally got the latest VMwareTools-9.6.1-1378637.tar.gz (VMWare Workstation 10.0.1)
    to compile with the Linux Kernel 3.13.0 and run properly on the latest Knoppix 7.3.0 using
    https://github.com/rasa/vmware-tools-patches
    except that the very useful /mnt/hgfs shared folder does dot work properly:
    ls -al /mnt/hgfs ==> ls: cannot open directory /mnt/hgfs: Not a directory
    All suggestions are welcome (besides waiting for the next VMware Tools release)
    Thanks,
    Gilles

    Knoppix 7.3.0 with 3D support/rendering (compiz) underVMware (not working yet)

    Hello,
    I am trying to get 3D rendering (compiz) with Knoppix 7.3.0 under VMware (Knoppix as a Linux guest)
    using my script: http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/...uild_3d.sh.txt
    So far everything builds now but 3D still does not work as I got it working previously for previous Knoppix, cf:
    http://knoppix.net/forum/showthread....l=1#post129607
    All helps and suggestions are welcome.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    .
    Last year's March 2013 CeBIT version of Knoppix
    was not replaced by 7.2.0 until June 27, 2013.

    Any chance to download it anywhere?
    Can't anyone create a torrent?
    I want 7.3.0 as it introduces experimental uefi boot, which I'd love to try.

    Greetings, ramoncio.

    You might see how Knoppix 7.2 works with UEFI while we are waiting for the 'Community Edition'
    of Knoppix 7.3 to arrive.

    FYI: Knoppix 7.2.0 Release Notes on Klaus K's site includes the following:
    Experimental support for UEFI-Boot (DVD: 32 and 64bit, CD: only 32bit) after installation
    on USB flash disk.

    And, there has been some Knoppix 7.2.0 UEFI discussion on this forum which you might audit
    if you haven't already done so. 'UEFI' in the forum Advanced Search box gives seven entries
    in addition to your post.

    Is it possible to buy a copy of Knoppix 7.3.0 anyplace? I read that it has not been released to the public yet for download.
