Knoppix 6.2 ~ is fun!

Installed pendrive version of knoppix-6.2 onto 4GB USB stick – Everything required just works. NOTE; Need Administrator permissions to successfully install to a usb stick

Setup Internet connection, (Not to hard – if you have the ISP / DNS ip numbers)

TESTED on older hardware HP – D530 mobo

Open Office 3, starts QUICKLY, .. most impressed. Will be using it again soon.

Downloaded Knoppix 6.2 from pendrivelinux

The distro is provided as an ISO file – and there is a installer file – USB-Installer-For-Knoppix6.2-v0.2.exe – which installs the OS to the USB without any fuss, just point the installer to the downloaded ISO file, and provide a path to the blank USB stick and thats it.

Some development information on wikipedia about ‘ADRIANE’ (development started around Jan-09, and Knoppix-Ver 6.2 / ADRIANE 1.2 released 18 November 2009)

The KNOPPIX 6.0.1 / ADRIANE 1.1 is a CD-edition again, and a complete rebuild from scratch. LXDE as default desktop and a very reduced software collection in order to easily fit on CD.

Adriane Knoppix is a variation that is intended for blind and visually impaired people, which can be used entirely without vision oriented output devices.

This review by Dmitri Popov provides a nice overview (If anybody is interested)
