What about this Grml distro, started from 2004? you like / use this distro , experienced it ... ?
I frequently use GRML LiveCD, particularly when I'm on the road and need to use computers that do not belong to me. It is an excellent distribution that includes almost any user or admin tool you could think of.
It even has a basic X Window environment in the rare occaisions when the command line will not do the job.
GRML has installed a "default" background that shows up no matter whick window manager you use, ie fluxbox, twm, etc. The backgournd is not very nice according to my taste. I would prefer to have something else when showing off Linux to new customers, clients, or friends. I have been unable to find the location of this background image. I have also been unsuccessful in trying to change or disable the image.
Where can I find the default background image so I can either remove or change it?
grml is a bootable CD (Live-CD) originally based on Knoppix and nowadays based on Debian. grml includes a collection of GNU/Linux software especially for system administrator and users of texttools. grml provides automatic hardware detection. You can use grml (for example) as a rescue system, for analyzing systems/networks or as a working environment.
