eth0 detected, no interenet on knoppix live dvd but works on ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2007
Ok, basically I've used the knoppix live dvd, i managed to get the internet working through eth0 once, but not again after this occasion
i first tried ubuntu live dvd to choose my preference (i prefer knoppix), as my ethernet modem uses DHCP, ubuntu and windows pick this up and the internet works without setting anything up, etc.
however on knoppix, i have encountered numerous "freezes" where i have to switch everything off and back on (including my ethernet modem) otherwise i cannot access the net on windows or ubuntu
i've tried netcardconfig, network-admin but nothing works, i realised that on network-admin my eth0 shows and when i click properties, it is marked as enabled and the drop down option shows "DHCP", when I click ok, I see the main network-admin screen and when I click "Activate" for eth0, i get an error about incorrect settings, cannot proceed, etc.
sometimes when i run netcardconfig it tries to autodetect dhcp but it fails, as so
Knoppix Live DVD shows intro screen then goes blank on Compaq Presario
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2009
I am trying to run Knoppix from a Live DVD on an older computer. When I start it, setting the BIOS to boot from the DVD it shows the intro screen (Please press enter to boot Linux from the LiveCD), but when I start it, it goes to a blank screen and stays there. It is a Compaq Presario Windows XP Home Edition. I downloaded the ISO file and burnt the image to a DVD with a Windows Vista (also Compaq), and when I booted the Vista from the DVD it worked fine.
Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it? It you want any more information, I will do my best to provide it.
change route of knoppix live dvd
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 7, 2014
I'm using a knoppix live dvd which connects to a torVM (using qubes os).
The problem is I can't connect.
The output of the "route" command shows: (imagine these side by side)
By what I've seen in my other VMs, it seems like changing the 10.137.3.0 to 10.137.3.1 is what I need to do.
The question is how do I do this?
Knoppix 5.3.1 DVD download question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 26, 2008
I like using Knoppix 5.1.1 as a rescue/boot system CD, so I figured that I would try out the Knoppix 5.3.1 DVD.
I go to the download mirrors, and they all show the 5.3.1 DVD download to be 4.1 gig. Fine, When I first start to download, however, there is a note on the download screen that says "2.0 GB -- kernel.org." Also, even though I download using Mozilla Firefox, the download stops at 2 gig.
Is the 2 gig download in fact 4.1 gig? Why the difference? I can't see any reason for the difference on the knoppix web site.
problems using knoppix 5.3 Live DVD to virus scan XP window PC (using fprot)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 6, 2008
My PC decided not to boot. As I did not back up any of my files, instead of formatting my PC Ive decided to try and use Knoppix 5.3 Live DVD and f-prot. As I have read that it is possible to scan and dis -infect window virus.
I managed to boot knoppix up and also install f-prot. However I am having trouble scanning my window partitions as I can not find the directory. I have done a search on the internet and its worrying to read that Knoppix should automatically detect window partitions and have an icon on the desktop to represent the drive(have i lost everything?).
So I was wondering if any one is able to advice me on what to do next =(
N/B: I tried to find my window partition using Rootshell and typing in the following command: cat /etc/fstab
where i received the following:
/proc /proc proc rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0
/sys /sys sysfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0
/dev/pts /dev/pts devpts
Raising a file size download limit of an Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit Live DVD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 25, 2014
I am trying to download a file using my Ubuntu 14.04 Linux Live 64 bit, DVD. The file size is 2.2 Gb and when I try to download it says that that the file size limit is 2 GB and thus will not download the file. After it is downloaded it must be gunzipped so it will become even bigger.
How can I do this? I would rather not have to install Ubuntu on my hardrive just to download and install this file. So I guess that I must find a way to raise the file size download limit. It probably should be increased substantially, if this is possible.
How do I do it?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Installation of packages from Ubuntu 9.04 Live Dvd
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 20, 2009
I am new to the wolrd of Linux & Ubuntu so I need your help.
I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 i386 desktop edition yesterday from the live Dvd. However, I am not able to install all the packages which are there in the Dvd. I have tried adding the DVD-Rom as a repository using the Synaptic Package Manager but it seems the process is getting stuck at the point "Unmounting CD Rom " thought the status bar shows the process to be completed.
I have also not been able to configure my internet connection. I use BSNL Broadband with an ADSL modem.
Kindly help me out and please give any references of books/materials regarding ubuntu 9.04.
thanks in advance
