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.

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

  • Version 8.1 of KNOPPIX is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (stretch), testing (buster) and unstable (sid) for newer graphics drivers or desktop software packages. It uses Linux kernel 4.12.7 and Xorg 7.7 (core 1.19.3) for supporting current computer hardware.

The bootloader will start the 64bit kernel automatically if a 64bit-capable CPU is detected (if not manually specified otherwise).
