    Is it possible to replace these with genuine Debian packages? How to do that?

    I'm satisfied with my Knoppix but some of my Debian friends don't think that Knoppix hd-install would ever be compared with pure Debian install. What do you think?

    You can remove/replace just about anything you want using apt-get. I have installed Knoppix on several machines and I usually remove knoppix-graphics and knoppix-sounds. I stick to standard KDE graphics. I also replace the cursor (pointer) graphics using one downloaded from www.kde-look.org. You can also edit the file: /etc/motd It is the "message of the day" that says something like "Welcome to Knoppix 2.4.24" I usually change it to read "Welcome to Linux".

    I also usually change sysvinit to the standard one as well. You have to be careful with that one becasue some key packages depend on it. I have written how I did it here: http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...light=sysvinit

    The other packages can be removed/replaced if you want, but it doesn't hurt anything. Some are very useful, like the "netcardconfig" script which is not a part of regular Debian.

    Thank you. I tried to change sysvinit but the package (from unstable) contains some bugs at this time. I installed it anyhow.

    So I have the new sysvinit package but something is not right because X and KDE doesn't start as a user (I can run WMaker as a root).

    I tried 'apt-get dist-upgrade' again and nothing is to be installed. I think there's no fatal error but some tuning is to be done
