    Knoppix 7.5 at CeBIT 2015

    .
    Knoppix 7.5 may be in the works.

    See for example this clue in the March 2015 CeBIT promotion.
    Hopefully, there might be English lectures alternating with
    the German, if the past is any guide.

    Knoppix 7.5, Linux Magazine Edition, released in conjunction with the CeBIT 2015 Exhibition, can be found on the April Edition (No. 173) of the UK version of Linux Magazine.

    Before anyone starts jumping up and down demanding the public edition should be available for download it is as well to remember that past experience is that the .1 public edition does not usually appear till later, (maybe as late as September). The benefit of the wait is you get some bugs fixed. Klaus Knopper releases when he is ready.

    Please provide the Linux Kernel 64 bits header files of Knoppix 7.5.0

    From: https://lists.debian.org/debian-knop.../msg00001.html

    Hello Klaus,
    Thank you very much for the new Knoppix 7.5.0 and I hope you and your family are doing well.
    Could you please provide the Linux Kernel 64 bits header files of Knoppix 7.5.0 ?
    Only the 32 bits Linux Kernel header files are included in your DVD and these header files
    are required to compile 64 bits Kernel modules.

    Could you please also enable by default the "composite" (3D) extension for the VMware video driver ?
    3D is currently disabled for VMware by the line echo "export NOCOMPOSITE=1" >/tmp/hwsetup.env
    in the /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig file (HW auto-detection). 3D can be forced by using the "3d" kernel
    cheatcode but as far as I can tell 3D rendering works well with Knoppix 7.4.2 and 7.5.0 and the latest
    VMware Workstation 11.1.0. It probably also works well on older versions of VMware. It works with
    and without the VMware tools installed and also under various versions of the Harware compatibility.
    Most of the VMware drivers are now included in the main stream Kernel tree and MESA-DRI is already
    included within Knoppix 7.4.2 and 7.5.0. So it would be better now to enable 3D by default for VMware
    Knoppix guests knowing that the "no3d" kernel cheatcode can still be used.

    As always, thank you so much for all these years of great development !
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    ============================================
    === Work around for the 64 bits Linux kernel headers: ===
    ============================================

    Please follow the below instructions to recompile the 64 bits Linux kernel used by Knoppix (7.5.0)
    and as a side effect have the Linux Kernel headers files available to compile extra modules such as
    the vmhgfs VMware kernel module installed by the VMware tools to enable file sharing between
    the Knoppix guest and the host operating system.

    #!/bin/sh
    pushd /usr/src
    tar -xvjpf linux-source-3.18.6.tar.bz2
    mv linux-source-3.18.6 linux-source-3.18.6-64
    cd linux-source-3.18.6-64
    cp /boot/config-3.18.6-64 .config
    make -j8 EXTRAVERSION=-64 CROSS_COMPILE= all
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-source-3.18.6-64 /lib/modules/3.18.6-64/build
    popd

    PS: For some reason the Linux Kernel header generation below did not work for me: a lot of necessary data is missing.
    make -j8 EXTRAVERSION=-64 CROSS_COMPILE= INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/usr/src/linux-headers-3.18.6-64 headers_install
    Is there a better way to generate the Linux Kernel headers ? What is the method used by Klaus to generate them on the DVD ?

    FYI: Knoppix 7.5.0 as a VMware 11.1.0 virtual machine guest with 3D & optional persistence:

    I recently got my Linux Magazine # 173 April 2015 edition with the Knoppix 7.5 DVD included. Very delighted with both items, the magazine and the DVD. The Best Live Distro on Earth, indeed!

    May I express my heartfelt thanks to Klaus Knopper for all his work over the years. A 'trial floppy disk with Knoppix 3.x on a magazine bought from a garage/shop/fuel filling station during a rainy day out on a visit to Wales got me started on Linux. Thanks.

    Any idea about when 7.5 will be available for download? Haven't been able to get the Magazine Edition. I know that the quick answer is when it's ready, but seriously can't we get some idea of when it will be available for download?

    Knoppix 7.4.2 will be one year old at the end of September.


    But it is not a distro and only upgrades in its own sweet time (or way).
