    New Debian based Distro

    Not to belittle our beloved Knoppix, but I saw a story on distrowatch to a new Debian based distro called Munjoy Linux. It looks nice but what is it with Debian based Desktop distros? Why do they all have strange names. Mepis and Munjoy. Wierd. In any event I think Munjoy may borrow a few things from Knoppix.

    Thanks for the link.

    Actually, this has many of the features I always loved to see in Knoppix:
    - supermount (no more mounting)
    - bootsplash, finally
    - very professional unified and clean look

    The overall look and feel is more "polished" than the Knoppix default settings (e. g. anti-aliased fonts, clean background picture). it almost looks like my own desktop

    Now I dream of a Knoppix that looks and works like Munjoy.

    Yeah, the supermount feature caught my eye as it's been discussed here a bit already.

    What does it mean by automatic partitioning? Is that just an option? I wouldn't want it partitioning my drive without my input.

    You can choose "No" for automatic partitioning and it will start cfdisk.

    I was intrigued enough to dl today and burn iso. It bots but gets stuck on loading I burned another CD, slow. No difference. Does anyone have mb5 checksum for the download? I didn't see anything at the site.

    The MD5 checksum for "munjoylinux-0.5.4.iso" is (or should be, anyway):

    22c1fbd2c2ca92d3ffe5e01251bb39e0

    Be advised you apparently can't actually run it from the CD -- it starts giving you installation options right after it boots. If you dump out of the installation, it runs Damn Small Linux. Unless I'm missing something...

    What does the "supermount feature" do?

    It makes popping and mounting cd's and floppies easier. You don't have to type the mount commands if you have supermount, it does it automatically for you in the background. Nice, eh? Btw, if you're into compiling kernels, there's a supermount patch out for 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. I have it compiled in my 2.4 kernel and it makes it easy for me to take out my cd's without having to run mount/unmount especially since I forget to do that sometimes.

    Ahh, ok. Thanks for the info. In that case it sounds like a nice feature.
