    Hi, Mr. Schulz!

    Needs:
    (1) Linux doesn't implement ReiserFS totally.
    (2) After the arrest of Hans Reiser, ReiserFS and Namesys have uncertain future.
    (3) Ext4 is Linux standard. Reiser4 is not. Ultimately, Reiser is going to evolve as Reiser4, as there is no further development and bug fixes on Reiser3 FS.
    (4) That the script for Knoppix Flash Drive install 2nd ed., overlay option, did not work in my system, is a secondary issue.
    (5) That the script uses the 1st partition as FAT32 also appears as a convoluted choice to me. It had better been reiserFS, or ext4 or XFS. FAT32 is a very bad choice as a FS.
    (6) Had everything been in ReiserFS I would have had no issues accepting Reiser. At least, the Knoppix virtual swap on RAM uses the ReiserFS. But FAT32 entirely ruins the unison attempted.

    BTW, let me seek the occasion to thank you for your little gestures that shows your goodness.

    My regards.

    Mr. Schulz, I had the first part of your post when I posted & you, writing the 2nd pt

    Dear Mr. Schulz,
    I had only the first part of your post when I posted the first draft & you were writing the 2nd part.
    Yes, I went to the link and found that it was indeed Micro-remastering.
    Please request Mr. Knopper to brainstorm with his team so that the requirement of FAT32 partitions on the Flash Drive in Flash-Knoppix2 is eliminated, and in its place, the RaiserFS introduced in the first place.
    Regards,
    Rajib

    Again! Knoppix isn't a distribution, it's a Live Linux. Therefore KK has other considerations for Knoppix. The best option to boot a Live Linux medium also on elder computers is to use FAT32.
    Please request Mr. Knopper to brainstorm with his team ..
    You can ask KK yourself using the Knoppix Mailinglist but you have to convince him. In annother connection he wrote

    PS: 0wn uses reiserfs as only option, because it is the only file system I know
    which repairs itself in case of a prior sync-less poweroff by just mounting it,
    and is fairly easy to handle compared to other tree+ file systems. You can try to
    convince me to use something else in the furture, of course, if you know any
    good reasons.
    And the team of KK - there is no team apart from his wife, testing Adriane, the component of Knoppix for blind peoples.

    But how is it that a person who is so sold on ReiserFS would not invest his everything on ReiserFS in the first place? I did not impose my opinion about ext4 on you. You are far better aware of the issue on this matter. I was only talking about a script for Flash Drive implementing everything in ReiserFS. Is it too difficult a request?

    Next, about:

    But his Webpage http://knopper.net/about/index-en.html says otherwise:
    ... How to reach us Together with Klaus Knopper, several freelance software developers are working together at KNOPPER.NET on individual IT projects...
    Anyway, I wouldn't like you to invest efforts on these petty issues. Our goal having been met, let's focus on something constructive.
    My regards,
    Rajib

    The company "KNOPPER.NET IT" of KK is one thing to earn money and also his job as Professor at the University of Kaiserslautern. The Knoppix/Ariadne project is not a project of the company, it's his private project →The Klaus Knopper interview.

    Oh, I see! Well then, with our technical discussion over, let's move on to other challenges. We could always chat using PMs.
    Good day, Mr. Schulz.
