Thread: KnoppixKDE

  1. #21

    Re: KnoppixKDE

    Bugzilla is when it comes to the point the defacto linux bug system.
    Just for your information. Bugzilla can - somewhat easily - be put on top of knoppix 3.1. Just made a Knoppix remastering with Bugzilla 2.16.2 on top and this runs fine (thanks to all on this site and the linuxtag knoppix-site!).
    I plan to find a webpage for this special 'Knopzilla' version.

    ok, I have a mirror now :
    http://ktown.kde.org/~dirk/knoppixkde/

    *features
    cool fbb boot screen
    kde 3.1 with every app thats been packaged
    full kde dev environment
    there are apps that were on knoppix but are not on this edition, it is pretty much just kde + kde apps
    it also has a memtest boot cheatcode
    457Mb

    you may report bugs about this remaster on http://www.knoppix.net/bugs/ under KnoppixKDE. Yes it's a new bug system. Yes it's slow ( damn perl ), I'm working on it. You may also report bugs on knoppix on this bugtracker ( Klaus wanted a bugzilla ). I need new hardware to make it faster.

    Why would you want a CD with bugzilla on it? .... it's for a website!

    Re: KnoppixKDE

    Yes, you're right, running a website from Knoppix is not really the optimal idea.

    However when you got it running/integrated first on the Knoppix CD, you have got a true, but slow yes, working-demo and any serious webserver installations (if you want that) can successively in theory be made with hdinstall scripts.

    IMO this 'pattern' counts for other somewhat-hard-to-install-for-newbies (web)tools. I can think of - and read from this site - many applications being 'sold' via a Knoppix demo

    ok, so I got the new version of knx-hdinstall and everything went smoothly.

    However, I tried to install the latest nvidia video drivers and ran into trouble (I'm a newbie).

    How do I get the proper "kernel-headers" package for this distro? I didn't see any packages listed for version 2.4.19-kkde using apt-get...there is 2.4.19-k7, will that work (i'm running an Athlon)?

    Thanks!

    Hm... the kernel is one that I compiled, and I didn't make a kernel-headers package.. doh! it's just 2.4.19 with one patch ( the suse framebuffer ) but that probally doesn't help you much. Try compiling it for just plain kernel-headers-2.4.19, you may get errors, but give it a shot. When you modprobe the module, there should be a force option that will force it to load in the wrong version.

    Ok, I'll try that. Thanks!

    On a similar note, how can I update the kernel? Can I use apt-get, or do I have to compile from source? The only linux experience I have is with RH 8.0 and updating the kernel was pretty automatic...but, I much prefer Knoppix as it seems to runs WAY faster than RH8.0. And the KDE 3.1 stuff is dead-sexy!

    It's possable to update the kernel using apt-get, that would also solve your "no headers" problem.

    download the latest sbminst, and when running it ( it's a binary so you run it like
    ./smbinst as root)
    and look for the "where to install it" option, install it to floppy (/dev/fd0)

    3.7 release 1
    sbminst-static (Linux binary, static)
    Or
    sbminst (Linux binary, glibc)

    Once installed to the floppy, how did you set it up to start the CD boot? What file on your CD starts the boot?

    either one should work.

    It just boots a bootable cd. When you boot off the floppy you'll be given a menu, and you just press down, select CDROM and press enter.

    I'll make one for Linux and another for DOS.

    Thanx.
