    make a woody a knoppix-live-cd????

    Hi@all
    I managed 6 month ago to build a knoppix live-cd with woody which i installed on HD before. the cd boots, but fails to detect the vga. it falls back to vesa. but it works!!!! and starts kde 3.1.4
    unfortunately i didn't write a doc.
    Now I'm trying to do the same with working hardwaredetection. I can't remember what i did.

    So please help me. I need to know, which directories i have to copy to the woody installation to manage the hardware detection. i know that the knoppix autoconfig script has to be in /etc/init.d

    but where are the files for the hw-detection???? the files, where the script checks, wich identifier is used by which hardware???

    and finally, i will build a cd, that supports my fiberline usb-wlan. that means, i need a new Kernel, sources and need to compile the driver. lateron it is planned to include IPSEC .

    thx

    hwsetup is in /usr/bin i believe. you also need the hw database and the knoppix-autoconfig.
    it's easier to just compile it as a monolithic kernel with your hardware drivers built in without futzing around with autodetection.
