    Updating KNOPPIX 7 (CD)


    I've tried updating KNOPPIX 7 (CD) installed on a flash-drive through the command line;

    Code:
    apt-get update
    Code:
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    The first responds as it should, but the second gets hung-up on Orca, saying that the original and gnome package conflict, and then updates nothing.

    Has anyone other than me found this, and am I over-looking a way of updating that will bypass it?

    You've come upon the primary reason why Knoppix is not meant to be installed on a hard drive but used as a Live CD. Conflicts. See the site below at knoppix.net:

    HD Install Warning not to do it - Knoppix Documentation Wiki

    Read the fourth paragraph, beginning with "Hopefully". It can be done if you have a lot of experience with Linux but I would think your best bet for help would be at Knoppix forums.

    Yup, that's what I thought, too...

    And I'm really not sure if I want to go about mucking with sources.list for the limited use I have.

    Thanks for the input.
