Read compressed filesystem...


Probably a simple question, I've looked everywhere (even in the mount help files ), bit I am unable to figure it out. I am interested in how the folks at knoppix did some things, but I don't want to boot into it everytime when I got a perfectly good running slackware system (which is the one I want to tweak)..

All I managed to find so far is information on mounting the boot.img files, but that is not what I need. I want to get the stuff inside the /knoppix/KNOPPIX (700MB) compressed file. I have enough hd space to store its contents, I just don't know how to..

Thanks for reading

After a little digging:

2-3 GB on a 650 MB CDROM--not bad. You must have enough available physical memory + swap to hold the entire 650 MB.
