[linrad] Knoppix 3.8.2 ; Re: [linrad] New Knoppix CD uploaded
Great job Roger!
Being equipped only with a 44k modem at present
I cannot download the ISO-file for now. On the
other hand I have done a couple of hard drive
installs of the previous version and subsequent
edits of configuration files, which I will report
(if not bypassed by your new edition).
Of course the Live_CD is intended for testing
existing PC's for Linrad-operation, and indeed
even for repeated use. As such there is no need
to constantly upgrade the Knoppix-part of the
Live_CD; however I would like to draw your
attention to the newest Knoppix 3.8.2 which
was dated 2005-05-05 and which reportedly
uses a different installer. I have not been
able to download that ISO either.

There is a new version of the Linrad Knoppix CD uploaded to Leif's site.
As before, the reference to the CD is from Rein's page:
As Zaba suggested, the distros will be numbered yyyy-mm-dd, so this is
The changelog for the various versions is at
The changes since the last edition are:
More widespread clean-up of unnecessary files to reduce size
Greater attempt to remove configuration files peculiar to w3sz hardware
Linrad version updated to Linrad-01.34
Linrad directory changed from /knuser/linrad-01.33 to /knuser/linrad
Linrad par* files removed from /knuser/linrad directory
I have made several CD's of the new iso after uploading it to Leif's site
and then downloading it, and it seems to work fine here. I have uncovered
no new 'issues'.
If you go to the Rein's link or directly to my link page, you will
download the new version. I will delete the old version, which currently
doesn't have a direct link, tomorrow after giving any downloads that might
be in progress a chance to complete.
I came across a superb, easy-to-read book on Knoppix today while at
Borders to get some College Guides for my daughter. It is "Knoppix Hacks:
100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tools", by Kyle Rankin. It goes from the
very basic to some very advanced tips. If you want to play around with
Knoppix a bit and if like me you are not a computer expert, you will find
this very helpful and fun. If you basically don't want to play with Linux
at all, you won't want the book. If you are a real expert, you won't want
it either. But if like me you are somewhere in the middle, you will find
this a very helpful, enjoyable, interesting book. I got it this afternoon
and have already finished its 300+ pages. O-Reilly press.
I also found a nice book on "Linux Shell Scripting with Bash: A
comprehensive guide and reference for Linux users and administrators" by
Ken O. Burtch. It looks very good too, but I have just skimmed a dozen or
so pages so far. It looked like it would be very helpful for script
writing, moreso than other books I'd picked up in the past. And I still
find a paper book easier to read than a bunch of computer screens ;)
