    HDD install

    I am pretty new to knoppix. But installation on disk was without problems. The only problem is, that on disk there is no KNOPPIX MENU for system changes and configuration-network cards...When you boot from cd, the menu is there.

    Did you log in as Knoppix or Root?

    I have already done some knx-hdinstalls and also missed the KNOPPIX menu on versions later than 2002-11-12.
    Here's a small HOWTO to keep it:
    In konsole
    Code:
    $ sudo su
    # cp /usr/local/bin/knx-hdinstall /ramdisk
    # cd ramdisk
    # vi knx-hdinstall
        search the line:
        chroot "$TR" rm -rf /usr/share/applnk/Knoppix /usr/share/gnome/apps/Knoppix
        and comment it (put a # before it) =>
        #chroot "$TR" rm -rf /usr/share/applnk/Knoppix /usr/share/gnome/apps/Knoppix
        save & leave vi
    
        run the script
    # ./knx-hdinstall (from the /ramdisk dir)
    Most progs in the KNOPPIX menu need root permissions to execute.
    To change this goto (on kde desktop of your new debian system):
    Menu K - system - menu-editor
    Edit the menus in dialog box:
    Check Run as different user (or similar - I use a german version)
    Run as : root

    Now it will work - you'll be asked the root password before the prog starts.
