    Ive also just tested the force boot of 64bit knoppix, I changed the kernel command from booting vmlinuz to vmlinuz-4-4-0-64 Now when give the arch command I get x86_64 rather than i686 Yet once again when I attempt to install Chrome I get the error processing package amd64 does not match system 1386

    google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb
    libappindicator1_0.4.92-2_i386.deb
    libdbusmenu-glib4_0.6.2-1_i386.deb
    libdbusmenu-gtk4_0.6.2-1_i386.deb
    libindicator7_0.5.0-1_i386.deb
    This Chrome (series 48 ) is not current; also i386 is for 32-bit systems.

    The Chromium which comes with Mint17.3 usVersion 50.0.2661.102 Built on Ubuntu 14.04, running on LinuxMint 17.3 (64-bit)
    So if you can find a Chrome (series 50 or later) that might help.

    I am quite aware that the Chrome 48 is outdated and the specified filename is for 32-bit system as both points have been mentioned in my original post. Besides, from my limited on-line search, it is most unlikely that Chrome (not Chromium) v50 and above for 32-bit Linux can be found on the net. It is also not doable to run Windows 32-bit Chrome via Wine and is too expensive to use the approach of virtual machine just to run this single software.

    I'm not saying that you should run a virtual machine. But in what way is it more expensive to do so? There are free options available. And since you are already committed to running a 64 bit version of the browser, i assume that you're not talking about any need to upgrade hardware for this. Please explain the "too expensive" comment.

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    That comment solely refers to the ratio between the storage space of Chrome and that of Windows OS.

    This is seeming more and more evident that Knoppix will not run the latest version of Google Chrome.

    I agree. It has become evident that the original poster needs to re assess their goals. Which is more important, using Knoppix or Chrome. Since Chrome on Knoppix doesn't appear to be a viable option it has become clear that the only viable option is to switch to a different distro that does he can run Chrome on. The more time he wastes bashing his head against the wall trying to make something that simply isn't going to happen work his time would be better spent on setting up a distro that will run Chrome.
