How do I work with Knoppix and mount a partition
I have Knoppix 3.9 for i386, but somehow I can not find the partition where I installed Suse Linux 9.3 Pro. I am a newbie, and there are some things that I am trying to figure out.
I have two hard disk drives. On one of them (D0) Windows XP Pro is installed, and on the other one (D1) Suse Linux 9.3 Pro is installed.
When you say "Mount the partition", at what part of the filesystem should I type the mount command, and how is the mount command written?
Your kind assistance will be highly regarded.
Since you can't use the keyboard, you won't be able to edit a config file. So, boot from the install cd (use it like a live cd to boot from cd, not hard disk), or use Knoppix.
If booting from cd, edit the running version of /etc/fstab to add a mount point for the suse partition. Then create that mount point in /mnt.
If using Knoppix, knoppix will create a mount point and an fstab entry in it's filesystem.
Mount the partition, then cd to /mnt/hda1/etc/sysconfig (or whatever the partition is called). Edit the file 'keyboard'.
Look for these lines:
# Keyboard mapping
# e.g. KEYTABLE="de-latin1-nodeadkeys", "us" or empty for US settings
COMPOSETABLE="clear winkeys shiftctrl latin1.add"
# The YaST-internal identifier of the attached keyboard.
Make your file look like that, then reboot and try the keyboard again.
While I was trying to add the US International keyboard layout in Suse Linux 9.3 Pro I accidentally did something wrong. The keyboard seems to have freezed, and whatever I type fails to appear on the screen.
When I installed Suse the default language was English (US). However I would like to use the US International keyboard layout in Abi Work, Open Office and other applications.
How can this be corrected?
