Knoppix 3.3

La dernière version de Knoppix 3.3 est disponible. Pour rappel, Knoppix est une distribution populaire, elle tourne directement à partir d’un CD-ROM, sans être installée sur le disque dur. Knoppix est basée sur la distribution Debian GNU/Linux.

Knoppix 3.4 est prévue pour le premier trimestre 2004.Lire la suite pour le changelog

Voici le Changelog de la 3.3:

* V3.3-2004-02-09 (Updates)
– Kernel 2.4.24-xfs
– KDE 3.1.5 from Debian/unstable
– mozilla 1.6 from Debian/unstable
– fixed Knoppix-Terminalserver problem with new libacl
– XFree 3.4 from Debian/experimental
– removed prelink (caused memory leaks under certain conditions)
– removed for space reasons: kjots, kcoloredit
– added drivers for wireless cards

Prevision des changements apportés par Knoppix 3.4:

– switching to IsoLinux plus a 2 floppy boot option in order to allow inclusion of more drivers in the kernel and initrd (USB and Firewire, possibly), since the space on the 1.44 MB floppy is exhausted for Kernel 2.6 alone already.
– Inclusion of ACPI. I know this will break many things, and you may have to boot with « noacpi » on many machines.
– Kernel 2.4.23+ and/or 2.6.0+, depending on the first stability checks. Maybe a dual boot option for different kernels.
– More utilities in the Knoppix service menus.
– Some more interactive options for selecting language/services on bootup via dialog menus.
– NTFS write support by using a linux kernel loader for native windows ntfs.sys (if present on the corresponding ntfs partition).
– Experiments with an overlay file system to allow easier on-the-fly installations of new software and possibly eliminating the need of a separate /ramdisk virtual partition.
– Project fork of a beginner and blind-friendly « talking » version with different voices and languages, with most of the « complicated expert-only stuff » removed. This version may rely on Kernel 2.6.0 because of the newer soundcard drivers for cheap/badly-designed/windows-only soundchips.
– first release scheduled for the end of the first quarter of 2004, maybe a download location for adventurous people who don’t mind destroying their hardware with the first Kernel 2.6 releases, will be provided. I hope to be able to have a release ready for CeBit 2004 (end of march).
