i'm actually running a knoppix 3.6 hd install, and i can't remember what happened but for some reason the original installation stopped working, so i apt-got it. and now, for some reason, even though i have myspell-en-us installed, it can't find my english dictionary. when i try to spellcheck, it says:
"Error executing the spellcheck.: English(USA) is not supported by the spellcheck function or is not presently active. Please check your installation, and, if necessary, install the required language module or activate it under 'Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids."
which i promptly checked, only to find no available language modules. please help, cause this not having spell check thing sure sucks.

At least you got feedback. I didn't get anything at all. I'm not upgrading because of that issue.

I'm thinking it's something wrong in the DEB package.

Knoppix is not Debian, please go to the knoppix forums, or the IRC knoppix channel (#knoppix).

Some of us actually use Knoppix as Debian. It's a quicker install process, and it gives us most of the options we need when we're setting up a Debian system without having to apt-get everything.

I'd say it's legitimate.

good news. it appears the new debian packages are out, so after my last apt-get upgrade, things appear to be working properly.
