Cool Knoppix Query!!


Hi I'm new to Linux. Am actually considering Linux because of Cinelerra, which is a video editing software that runs on Linux. Currently I am running on WinXP. Can I use Knoppix as a boot disc and install Cinelerra on my hard drive and run it that way? Or do I need to have Knoppix running as an opsys on the HD instead of WinXP?
Much appreciate your input!!

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

If you set aside a partition that Knoppix can write to there's
no problem in booting Knoppix of CD and keep software and settings
on the drive. I don't think that trying to use Knoppix with NTFS
would be a good idea, though.


Cheers,
Tink

So you think that buying an extra drive would be much better? Then I can choose the OS on boot.

That would certainly speed up Knoppix boot-time and over-all
performance ... I find Knoppix good for a look&see, but to
actually WORK with it I'd recommend a hard-drive install.


Cheers,
Tink

If you want to 'look and see' a live CD with Cinellera you can download the dynabolic LIVE CD
it contains Kino, Cinelerra and LiVES, to edit video and publish clips

http://www.dynebolic.org/

There is even a way to do a HD install from the Live CD if you so desire..
