knoppix-installer

The knoppix-installer script should work right, but :

  • You should choose knoppix as the new user (or reconfigure as root the /usr/share/optgeo/optgeo.cfg file and perhaps xffm configuration files)

You CAN install KnoSciences on harddisk, if you wish, though installation is not required for productive use. If you want to do this, you should just make sure there is some empty space on your harddrive so you can create at least 2 Linux partitions, one for the System (for Knosciences, minimal approx. 3 GB) and about minimal 200MB for Swap during the installation process. It is VERY important that the swap space partition is of type “Linux Swap space” (or equivelent”). A partitioning program (qt_parted) is integrated in the knoppix-installer.

It’s recommend to use 5 GB for root partition and 400 MB for swap partition.

(NOTE: Be sure the root partition is the first partition on the drive, is formatted with ext2 or ext3, and is set to “active.” The swap partition must be formatted with “linux-swap.” Installation and subsequent booting will not continue otherwise.)

You should type “sudo knoppix-installer” in the shell if you want to do this. Please ALWAYS make sure that you have a working backup of your important data prior to experimenting with ANY new software, no matter if Windows, Linux or anything else.

In knoppix-installer, arrow keys move focus and space bar selects options. Better choose knoppix.knoppix as user because some

Note: Do not use “knx-hdinstall” anymore. “knx-hdinstall” is no longer maintained, use “knoppix-installer” instead.

Or the Knopper FAQ on doing it manually. http://download.linuxtag.org/knoppix/KNOPPIX-FAQ-EN.txt

Once knoppix is installed on a hard disk, it’s no longer a Knoppix ;-) it’s a uncompressed complete Debian GNU/Linux.
