Using Knoppix Live CD as installation media...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2003
I've been following knoppix from 3.1 to 3.2 to now 3.3,
( http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-old-en.html - for an ugly web-page descriping this beautiful project)
and it is probably one of the best examples of just how powerful Linux is. Not only does this livecd autodetect and load appropriate modules and drivers for just about *any* hardware you throw at it (x86 based mainly), but on a single CD it has just about any program you could imagine, with a KDE 3.1 desktop and all the trimmings...
Anyway, flattery aside, does anyone know of an easy way to use Knoppix as installation media? In otherwords, boot from the CD, get into a full linux filesystem, and then use that state to partition and initalize a Hard Drive, and put the fully inflated Knoppix CD down to the drive, so that Knoppix is your actual HD based distro? There must be some (relatively) easy way to do this, so perhaps people have had luck with it...
Grub reinstall help using knoppix
- date: June 7, 2004
ok so i reinstalled windows 2000 added sp4 and grub went missing
so i downloaded knoppix
#i have no floppy drive and i know i can just goto 'rescue' or even
# 'upgrade' on redhat install discs to fix this problem but i dont want to
anyways so i go into knoppix and change the mounted patitions to write access by clicking on it and going to actions and change read write access
and changed to root using the 'su' command
and type in '[email protected]
and i get this
'mkdir: cannot make directory '\boot\grub' : read-only filesystem
but i changed it to write access
so the i thought id do it manually
# mount -o rw /dev/hdb2 /mnt/hdb2'
# mount -o rw /dev/hdb3 /mnt/hdb3'
and got the same result.
#hdb1 is windows 2000
#hdb2 seems to compaling grub and its contents soo i assume thats the /boot parition
#hdb3 is the rest of
expanding an ext3 partition using knoppix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2007
ok, i'm kind of desperate here...
I'm using knoppix to expand my ext3 partition..
i ran fsck on sda2 (the partition i want to expand), and removed the journal to change its type to ext2..
Then, i used fdisk to delete the partition and to create a new one, specifying the first and last cylinder, so it would enclose the free space i had behind the partition and the partition itself.I finally wrote the partition table on disk (using w) and quit fdisk. So far, so good... Here's when the problems started. I rebooted and went back on Knoppix.then I tried to run e2fsck /dev/sda2 and the output was the error quoted below.
Using Knoppix to scan Windows for ViriHow?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 1, 2005
I bought Kyle Rankin's excellent book "Knoppix Hacks" and one of the main reasons was to scan Windows machines with Knoppix for viri using f-prot. He explains it for Knoppix 3.4 but I can't make it work with 3.9 which I'm using. When I go to the f-prot website there are Windows versions and Linux versions. i want to run it on Linux but scan and disinfect Windows. I've been googling and looking around but there doesn't seem to be any easy way to do this. I tried the method Rankin describes in his book but there isn't an option to select it in 3.9 as he describes. Then I tried a command line method I googled:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install f-prot
It returned no such package.
I also tried using 4.0 the DVD version with no luck.
Any guru's have any ideas how I can make this work? I'm a relative newbie so please use small words!
Using Knoppix to Test, Diagnose & Benchmark
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2005
In Windows I use a program called Sandra by SiSoftware to discover all kinds of information about computer systems, to dignose problems, identify hardware and benchmark and do burn-ins. I'm interested in doing similar things with Knoppix. Please help me use Knoppix to do some of the things I use Sandra on Windows to do. To start:
How do I identify a motherboard?
How do I identify memory by slot?
How do I test memory?
How do I test hard drives (surface integrity)?
How do I benchmark IDE throughput?
What testing and benchmarking tools should I be aware of?
Using Knoppix to recover files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 8, 2009
Hope someone here can help can help a newbie out.
I am trying to recover some files from an unbootable computer. I created a Knoppix CD and booted from there. At first, everything worked great, I was able to copy my files onto a USB key.
While copying an entire folder, it began to give error messages and said that some of the files did not exist. I skipped through these messages and completed the copy. Then I tried to copy more files but I could not access the partition anymore. Now when I boot the system, it will not detect the partitions, only the USB drive.
Any idea what happened and how I can fix this?
Thanks in advance.

Using Knoppix for disk image backup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 28, 2004
I'm wondering how I can backup my Windows XP NTFS partition with Knoppix. I'd either like to copy and compress the image to another partion (I could make a .5-3 gig FAT partition) or I would like to compress and burn to CD.
Can anyone walk me through it?
Using KNOPPIX just to surf online? Is it secure?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2006
1. Also, about security, what are the benefits of KNOPPIX security wise if I just want to go surf the Internet? It doesnt leave traces or anything in the cache? I think thats what I heard...But I want to confirm this. I heard from somebody that if you load KNOPPIX CD just browse the Internet, is more secure? I heard it doesnt leave any cache or cookie traces one after ejecting KNOPPIX...
2. Now the how to use part of KNOPPIX....
Suppose I have Windows 2000, And I load Knoppix CD into the CD drive and it boots up, then everytime I have to set my Internet connection up everytime I load the Knoppix CD just to surf the net?? If thats the case, than thats a hassle. But its more secure though.Thats what I like about it..And If I dont want the KNOPPIX CD anymore running in the CD drive, how can I eject it or shut the PC down if I dont want to go back to Windows again? Or, if I want to go back to Windows, then how will I eject the CD and then go back to Windows again? Do I need to eject
