KNOPPIX-6.2 A short review...

Well, got home and saw KNOPPIX-6.2 on distrowatch
so got the english cd
and burned it

I first booted to ram off cd
and encountered a "bug"
well, maybe an omission of information...

Seems when using toram option
the usb installer quits saying it can't find /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg

so, dont use toram when booting off cd if you wanna
install frugal to usb

I rebooted and didnt do toram
and the usb installer worked OK!
(note- still no graphical boot menu)

there is also a hd installer
doing that tomorrow....

after initally booting off usb
it asked if I wanted to make a persistent knoppix img
on usb
I mistakenly entered 500MB and it didnt work
although it also didnt tell me anything...

anyway I rebooted and entered just 500
which worked...

So, I started customizing LXDE and got flash and some audio stuff...
knoppix has synaptic now and is basically Debian Live...?

heres my desktop

hell yeah

anybody try it yet??

Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely add it to my to-do list. I'm taking Sabayon 5 for a spin right now (liking it a lot too).
