    no3d cheat parameter gets in an endless loop of starting X with Knoppix 8.2

    I usually use knoppix with the no3d boot parameter, like "knoppix64 no3d noscreensaver" but I've noticed with 8.2 it will go into a endless cycle of trying to start X, failing and trying again.

    If I don't use no3d, everything is fine.

    I thought no3d would just disable compiz.

    Same observation here on laptop with Intel Haswell and desktop with nvidia GT218.

    Funny observation: on VirtualBox virtual machine with 16 MB video memory and no 3D acceleration, booting with cmdline "knoppix64 keyboard=dk" works fine, starting X without compiz. It seems that if Knoppix 8.2 is allowed to detect that the machine has too little graphics resources to run compiz, it starts X with window manager openbox-lxde just fine. However, when I boot the same VM with cmdline "knoppix64 keyboard=dk no3d" it fails to start X and enters the endless cycle of failing.
