    Initiating Startup Sequence


    This may be in the wrong forum so I apologize in advance if it is but does anyone happen to have the 2 uncompressed .wav files used as the startup and shutdown greeting on the current version of Microknoppix (KNOPPIX 6.0 / ADRIANE 1.1)? I can't seem to figure out how to find/pull them out of the .iso.

    Not sure about Knoppix. I changed my startup .wav in AntiX to something more to my liking. Maybe you can find something in my thread that will pop a lightbulb in your head on how to find your files.

    I actually run Mint, I want to take those files from Knoppix and use them in Mint. I can change my startup greeting and all that in Mint but these 2 files are proving to be a pain in the ***.

    My problem is that when I have the .iso mounted I can't get to where the .wavs are stored. When I'm actually running it on my laptop it is all in German and ignoring the fact that it's in German...I'm not very familiar with Knoppix so I have no idea where to look. I found the 2 .wav files from an older version, someone just extracted the .wavs and hosted them online but the problem is that they are compressed and my OS doesn't like playing compressed files for system sounds.

    I don't even know why I want to do this. I just liked the way Microknoppix started up. So if nobody has any answers it's no big deal, I'm just about done messing with this.

    Just uzip them

    but the problem is that they are compressed
    I have xarchiver in AntiX for uncompressing files. I can't seem to find what knoppiX uses to unzip compressed files. But all Linux distros come with something/application with a gui to unzip compressed files.

    Extracting ZIP Files

    Search Knoppix Linux

    after you unzip those compressed sounds . you can rename them ogg,mp3 ............etc and put them in /usr/share/sounds file

    If the OP just can't find the files, they're in /usr/share/sounds/

    The files are startup.ogg and shutdown.ogg (ogg-vorbis format). IIRC, they're from a movie, and at one point Klaus took them out because he had some concerns about whether they were a copyright violation; I guess he got approval for using them. If you can't find the movie, you might just do a soundcard rip, or see if there's an ogg-vorbis to wav converter.
