    Cheatcodes for Spanish lang and keyboard don't work for me in v7.4.2

    I'm using v7.4.2 in a pendrive made with flash-knoppix. After typing knoppix lang=es and entering the password only a black screen is shown. Same behaviour with keyboard=es.

    Is there some workaround for this?

    Thanks,
    Eduardo

    Are there error messages using the cheatcode "knoppix testcd noimage" (omit "lang=es")?

    After telling

    Knoppix 7.4 found at: /dev/sdb1
    Checking Knoppix/Knoppix...

    a few minutes later the OS shows a black screen and gives no other sign of being alive. It no even asks for a password.

    It looks like a hardware error. Did you test RAM with the cheatcode "memtest" (not "knoppix memtest") for some hours?

    Will use another netbook, same model, and then I'll tell you. But cheatcodes worked fine with v7.2...

    Now I used both netbooks, but kept watching the screen:

    Knoppix 7.4 found at: /dev/sdb1
    Checking Knoppix/Knoppix...
    ALL FILES OK
    ...
    The graphical environment...

    And then the black screen.

    Can you switch to a console using [Ctrl Alt F2] and see anything? If so, type
    Code:
    su
    reboot
    and try some of the other cheatcodes to find a solution for your graphic chip. "memtest" had no errors?

    The OS does not respond to Ctrl Alt F2.
    Will run memtest tonight.

    Thanks, Werner.

    After a time far from Knoppix because of a Synaptic problem, I’m using it again as my main OS.
    When I enter cheat codes "knoppix keyboard=es xkeyboard=es" Spanish keyboatd works fine, but with
    LABEL knoppix
    KERNEL linux
    APPEND lang=en keyboard=es xkeyboard=es apm=power-off initrd=minirt.gz nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1

    in /mnt-system/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg
    it doesn’t.

    Is this the file I have to edit?

    Thanks.

    Which Knoppix version? Which installation - "Flash disk install" or "HD install"?
    Have also a look at the end of Cheat Codes → Micro-Remastering.
