    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try this out as soon as I get time for it, and report the outcome. I also tried an ordinary install of 7.7.1 under Workstation 10.X, using flash-knoppix. Seems to work fine, but I won't go further along that line until I have a remastered ISO to start from. Knoppix ran just fine with the 64-bit kernel. The host, Debian Jessie, runs with 3.16 kernel as default.

    Knoppix 8.0.0 as a VMware 12.5.5 virtual machine guest with 3D & optional persistence

    Hello,
    Please find below the latest Knoppix 8.0.0 minirt for nfs, samba and iso boots (32 & 64):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k800/minirt_800.gz (17.7MB)
    and the VMware 12.5.2 virtual machine guest zipped with 32/64 bits boot, 3D and optional data persistence
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/vmk800_4352439.zip (63.4MB)
    As usual feedbacks are always welcome.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    PS: Please find below the last working VMware Tools 10.0.6 cloop file (also used for Knoppix 7.7.1):
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/k800/vmt4352439 (34.7MB)
    For some unknown reason the latest vmware tools distributed with VMware 12.5.5 cannot be installed properly.
    But the older vmware tools installed in the above vm guest do work just fine also with the latest VMware 12.5.5.
    I am still trying to understand why the latest tools cannot be installed as I am getting the error message below.
    Please let me know if you have a solution.

    ...
    Making sure services for VMware Tools are stopped.

    Failed to stop vmware-tools.service: Unknown unit: vmware-tools.service
    See system logs and 'systemctl status vmware-tools.service' for details.

    Where can I get a copy of 8.0? It seems silly to invest lots of time working with 7.7.1 if its being replaced soon.

    Thanks...

    minirt_900.gz checksum, size, function, etc.

    Have downloaded minirt_900.gz in the faint hope that it will somehow lead me to a way of obtaining Knoppix 9.0. Have run into two issues so far.

    1. whereas your post gives the download size of minirt_900.gz as 23.5MB, Windows file manager gives te size as 63.7 MB (66,866,176 bytes)

    2. I've searched for the meaning of minirt with Duckduckgo, but the only hit is your post above, so I still have no idea what this file contains or is meant to do

    3. I don't have a hash or checksum to test the integrity of the file.

    PS. I have a (somewhat) working copy of Knoppix 8.6.1 At least, it boots reliably from flash, but has a fatal flaw it shares with the last six or more versions - Synaptic doesn't work, and I haven't found a way to fix or replace its function. So there is no way to install or update any apps, including virus signatures for Clamv.

    I've also been unable to use my desktop monitor with any variants of Knoppix 7.xxx or 8.xxx (the display will not size to fit, so no functions are accessible via gui) and am forced to use my laptop's screen. This is why I keep looking for the latest version, in the faint hope that these issues will have been fixed.
