    Issues with knoppix


    Hi. I fit the title of this forum, I'm a complete newbie to linux. I downloaded and got knoppix to run from the live cd, but i want to install it as the only os on an extra computer that i have. i found instructions online using the knx-hdinstall command, but when i type it in to the terminal, i get a bash command not found message. i tried to get into the root terminal thing, but it asks me for a password which i don't have/know? Anyone know what Im doing wrong?

    Try this out, it's the how-to from the Knoppix site.

    It looks like the knx-hdinstall command is no longer supported, that's if you have ver 3.3.

    the "knoppix-installer" command worked, but it's still telling me i need root permission, which, whenever i try to get it, it asks for a password i don't have.

    go to a shell and type "su".
    if this doesn't work type "sudo su" this should give you root access, now run the knoppix-installer script...

    Yes,
    `sudo su` also works for Morphix
