Knoppix rev’d – News – Linux for Devices

Klaus Knopper has released version 6.2 of his Debian-based live-CD Linux distro. Based on Debian 5.0 (“Lenny”), the new version uses the lightweight LXDE as the default desktop, and includes a new version of the ADRIANE talking menu system for vision-impaired users.

The live-CD version of Knoppix, called Microknoppix, offers a complete rewrite of the Knoppix boot system, and includes a number of bug fixes and updates, says Knopper in his release notes. The release is said to be based on the “Testing” and “Unstable” branch of Debian 5.0 (“Lenny”), as well as Linux Kernel 2.6.31.6, and X.org 7.4.
