KNOPPIX

Knoppix è una distribuzione Linux live basata su Debian fornita su CD o DVD che ha lo scopo di fornire un ambiente adatto al ripristino di altri sistemi o come dimostrazione delle potenzialità di Linux. Utilizza il desktop manager LXDE di default, ma sono avviabili anche KDE e Gnome. I punti di forza sono il riconoscimento dell’hardware automaticamente.

Versione 7.4.1

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

  • Version 7.4.1 of KNOPPIX is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (wheezy) and newer Desktop packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable (jessie). It uses kernel 3.16.2 and xorg 7.7 (core 1.16.0) for supporting current computer hardware.
  • In addition to the 32bit standard kernel, the 64bit version of the same kernel is installed on the DVD edition, supporting systems with more than 4GB of RAM and chroot to 64-bit installations for system rescue tasks. In the DVD version, the bootloader will start the 64bit kernel automatically if a 64bit-capable CPU is detected (if not manually specified otherwise).
  • Bugfixes vs. 7.4.0:
    • transparency problem (invisible mouse pointer) when using the “write on screen” or “fullscreen zoom” plugin fixed in compiz behoben,
    • stabilized speech-dispatcher 0.8 for ADRIANE,
    • added boot option “knoppix mkimage” for auto-creating writable overlay on flash-knoppix-installed USB flash disk, should behave as expected in “read only like DVD” install option,
    • dia and wxmaxima startable again,
    • network-manager+modem-manager update.
  • Update: Linux Kernel 3.16.2 with cloop and aufs plus a patch against the reiserfs file corruption bug in the kernel 3.16 series,
  • Update: New, experimental version of 3D window manager compiz 0.9.12.0,
  • Update: LibreOffice 4.3.1,
  • Update: Chromium 36.0.1985.103 and Firefox/Iceweasel 32.0 Web Browser with AdBlockPlus 2.6.4 and NoScript 2.6.8.36 security plugin,
  • Gimp 2.8.10,
  • Partly integration of system start and service manager systemd, which is apparently going to be standard in the next version of Debian, with a workaoround in order to keep the quicker, script-based KNOPPIX system start with sysvinit,
  • LXDE (Default) with filemanager PCMANFM 1.2.1, KDE 4.8.4 (boot option knoppix desktop=kde, DVD version only), GNOME 3.8.4 (boot option knoppix desktop=gnome, DVD version only),
  • Wine version 1.7 (git) for integration of Windows (TM) based programs,
  • Virtualbox version 4.3.14 (DVD version only) and qemu-kvm 2.0.0 for (para-)virtualization.
  • Optional integration of the Tor network for anonymously surfing the web (DVD version only).
  • Easy Desktop-Export via VNC and RDP for Remote Desktop Viewing under Linux und Windows (especially interesting for teachers),
  • SAMBA network volume search & mount utility smbmount-knoppix,
  • Possibility to update an existing flashdisk installation of KNOPPIX via flash-knoppix,
  • New version of the elinks text web browser, Templates for mail configuration with mutt, automatic page orientation detection in scanning/ocr utility adriane-ocr and keyboard mailing program KARL in ADRIANE Audio-Desktop,
  • bitcoin core 0.9.2.1 for managing Bitcoin wallets (makes only sense on USB flash drives >= 32GB because of the current blockchain size),
  • added a tiny “boot only” CD image inside the “KNOPPIX” directory for computers that can only boot from CD, but not from DVD or USB flash drive (please use boot option “knoppix lang=en” if it’s booting in german instead of english language by default),
  • Experimental support for UEFI-Boot after installation on USB flash disk.
