    Please check whether it works in the original Knoppix you used as a base for your remaster. If it does, the packages in your remaster ("apt-get upgrade") are incompatible with the respective klik recipe you are using to run.

    Great! Some ideas I had on this:
    apt-get should run on the server. You can access apt-get through php (exec, I think). Now, at least for KDE apps, there is all you need: Let the PHP page call apt-get to display the available packages and to create the list of URLs to be included in the recipe (but always make sure you are using http://snapshot.debian.net/ with the date matching to the Knoppix version you want to generate the klik script for, e.g. http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2...14/debian/pool for KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-14, otherwise you might end up in broken packages and/or too many packages downloaded and broken URLs in the recipe - thanks Fabrian for this hint). Then, let the server extract the neccessary meta information for the klik recipe from the deb package. Finally, let PHP write the klik recipe. Should all be possible without too much hassle. HOWEVER this takes only into account the apps that were in unstable at the point of time the Knoppix version you are writing for was available. If you want more recent apps to run, you will possibly have to hand-write your recipe anyway, sometimes even using "dirty" sources such as Fedora RPMs and the like.

    If it all works, it will be coooooooool

    If you need some script snippets for the apt-get server side part I am talking about, drop me a line. I have them here (for my local use, not yet embedded into php, however).

    Sorry about that. I have bolded the KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-14 on the homepage as a quick fix. Don't want to rewrite all the recipes right now (this shows that all such generic stuff should be handled by php-includes server-side in the recipes to make it easy to change just one include file instead of x recipes...)

    Hi probono,

    Has someting changed with install?

    I must be snafu time.
    ( I don't use bad language -- this is a proper
    US military term )

    KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-19 appears to run install but
    It does not work now.
    This worked without problem yesterday??

    It is expected that some app's won't work smoothly from
    version to version -- but surely the installer will install itself.
    I expect some install script changes are being made.

    Hmmm with multiple installs I get .klik .klik.1 .klik.2

    We are standing by.

    Best Wishes

    Hi paradocs, nope - nothing has changed with the install in the last few days. I tried it 5 secs ago and it worked as always. Please run the install command in konsole, perhaps you can see what goes wrong. Maybe berlios.de just had a server problem at the time when you tried?

    This is what I get when I run klik from konsole on the official KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-19:

    knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ /home/knoppix/.klik
    /home/knoppix/.klik: No such file or directory: shell has changed!

    The file is there (I ran 'ls -a'). As I stated before, the wget script installs but doen't allow me to 'install' apps.

    Please reinstall your client. I could fix this bug.

    Tried that. no luck. I even deleted the .klik file just in case.
    Running the same command on 2003-11-14 works fine.

    Sorry about that. That must be obviously a very bad bug, I will investigate this, but I cannot promise a quick solution.

    Btw, if there are people out here who seriously want to join the klik team and are willing to spend some time on this, please leave a message.
