KNOPPIX: problems

I am succefully booting knoppix from a USB key. I have two strange problems however:

1. When I boot, if I type "knoppix myconfig=/mnt/uba1" then knoppix succesfully finds the file on the root of my usb key. If instead I add "myconfig=/mnt/uba1" to the APPEND line of the appropriate syslinux.cfg section, knoppix does NOT see the file. Why? (I confirmed this by adding the line 'echo "Test" >> /tmp/test.txt" to the file.

2. More importantly, even when does run, it will not start ssh! I added the line '/etc/init.d/ssh start' to the top of the file. Still, it doesn't seem to run or work. I CAN run this command from a bash shell, and then sshd works great. Why is not running this line?

KNOPPIX: problems


I'm not sure of the answer but I think :
when is used, the full env is not loaded when is running. This may leed to some problems to run some commands correctly.

Solved both problems:

1. A typo in the ssh line prevented starting

2. It appears that a bug in syslinux/knoppix causes it to ignore the myconfig= parameter if at the START of the line, but ok at the end
