    Knoppix 3.1
    Submitted by grolschie on Wednesday, July 31, 2002 – 23:16
    CD ImagesKnoppix 3.1 has been released. Based on Debian woody 3.0, Knoppix 3.1 has KDE 3.02, OpenOffice.org 1.0, Gimp 1.2 and kernel 2.4.

    The live system runs from CD with no install required. The installer autodetects hardware, and is up and running in seconds

    Subject: Slashdot article and clustering?

    Slashdot has an article on knoppix now.

    To clarify my above comments, I was only comparing it to Progeny because Progeny has a nice installer that is not standard because it was part of what was essetially a fork of debian (and the gui 1386 specificity). It just sounds like knoppix code would make a great debian i386 installer, but it would be a pitty if the code was not brought into the debian distro proper (if that makes sense).

    Also, I’ve been thinking about knoppix and clustering. We have a heap of computer room machines sitting around at late hours. I envision a knoppix clustering CD – insert the CD which would add the box to the cluster then reboot when people want to use it as a workstation again.

    A bit silly probably, but I’m thinking about the possibilities 🙂

    Hi Ian,

    there was a clustering CD mentioned somewhere in the
    LNX-BBC mailing lists. If you don’t know LNX-BBC, it’s a business card sized bootable CD. One guy made a version specially for clustering, you may want to check it out.
