It now comes with the 2.6 kernel (though 2.4 is default).

I'll update just exactly what cheatcode you need to use to be able to use the 2.6 kernel when their site gets back up. ;-_-

This new version of Knoppix includes KDE 3.2.2, OpenOffice.org 1.1.1 and Gimp 2.0.

Apparently it also has a much nicer installer, which should be intresting to see.

I downloaded it last night, and havn't gotten a chance to play around with it yet, but I'm probally going to write a review on it when I get home, after trying it out. (Wayyy too many RH based reviews here) biggrin.gif

Don't bother trying to go to knoppix.net to get the ISO, their servers are overloaded at the moment.

A link to the torrent can be found Here. You'll obviously want to pick up KNOPPIX_V3.4-2004-05-04-EN.torrent wink.gif

I agree with Johnny on this one. I like Knoppix a lot, but only as a live cd. It was nice to have while in school to show it off to teachers and stuff to try to get them to switch. So far, it has worked out nicely.

As for instlaling on the hard drive, Debian is better to install because of the bloat factor. Installing knoppix onto a harddrive is good for the device detection, however, you end up with a bloated system of redundant apps for the most part. I like the speed and control that debian gives you with each and every install.

Whenever I installed Debian in the past, i would take teh default package selection from the install, and that's it. As i needed a program or package, I would install it individually rather then just doing a mass install.

However, for network-less machines, or dial-up connections, maybe knoppix is better? *shrugs*
