    Knoppix 7.6.1

    Hello,
    It looks like that Knoppix 7.6.1 DVD is out of the bakery and is available on some of the mirrors:
    0db0b36fc7bad7b50835f68c369e854c *KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso (md5)
    Have fun,
    Gilles

    No release notes? What are the main changes?

    @ruymbeke Many thanks for the newsflash. Cannot wait for the release of CD (or CD-ish) flavour...

    A new kernel version hit the Knoppix repository the same day the 7.6.1 torrents went up on the tracker, so there's probably a new kernel in the latest release.

    There are many small-number version upgrades in Knoppix 7.6.1 relative to 7.6.0.
    The more likely significant upgrades in programs I use include:
    Kernel 4.2.6
    Flash 11.2r202.559
    GParted 0.24.0
    Gedit 3.18.2
    Nautilus 3.18.4

    Excerpt from Klaus K comment regarding Knoppix 7.6.1 DVD

    7.6.1 is actually a bugfix release which
    addresses many of the glitches reported for 7.6.0, but I did not manage
    to write release notes or an announcement yet. The main change is that
    compiz is only started if the graphics adapter supports acceleration, so
    a few graphics cards which were, in theory, able to run compiz, but very
    slow, will now happily start the 2d window manager unless you use the
    "3d" cheatcode. Also, the harddisk installer has been fixed and the
    terminalserver works again.

    I don't know why systemd invokes aumix restore, it really shouldn't.
    HOME=/var/run/alsa looks wrong to me anyways. I wish I could get
    completely rid of systemd, but some essential programs like
    network-manager require it in Debian. At least, using the real sysvinit
    instead of systemd's idea of init has been kept for now, which
    circumvents a lot of boot problems introduced by systemd.

    Regards
    -Klaus
    In my case, I noted that Gedit and Nautilus had improved.
    I also noted a strange response to dmesg | grep fail
    which mentioned some '/var/run/alsa' restore problems.
    I'm using aumix to tweak my audio which may have provoked this.
    I'm ignoring that dmesg for the present.

    knoppix 760 and knoppix 761 dafault boots to different languages without cheat codes

    Good morning!
    I have downloaded KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-DE.iso from many mirrors listed at knopper.net and they all default boot to the English Language instead of the German Language; however, when I downloaded the KNOPPIX_V7.6.0DVD-2015-11-21-DE.iso, this version default boots to the German Language. I'm concerned that my computer may be making mistakes when downloading--or did Professor Knopper make the newer version (7.6.1) to default to the English Language? I know about the boot code of "lang=de" and/or "lang=us" but I liked the way that the KNOPPIX_V7.6.0DVD-2015-11-21-DE.iso image booted default to the German Language without needing any additional "lang=de" code added to the command line before booting the OS.
    Blessings

    Please look at the file '/boot/isolinux/syslnx64.cfg' within your DVD - not within your USB and/or HD installation - and tell us the output of
    Code:
    sed -n '/lang/p' syslnx64
    For me with "KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-DE.iso" I've got for each line "APPEND lang=de ..."

    Hi Werner.
    When I look at the file '/boot/isolinux/syslnx64.cfg' within my -DVD, the output of
    Code:
    sed -n '/lang/p' syslnx64
    is the following:

    APPEND lang=en apm=power-off video=640x480 initrd=minirt.gz nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1 adriane

    Werner, I very much appreciate your help with this. I now realize that I must have renamed the .iso improperly with DE instead of EN after I downloaded it because the output that I got from
    Code:
    sed -n '/lang/p' syslnx64
    shows each line "APPEND lang=en instead of "APPEND lang=de ...
