Knoppix 7.7.1 Release Notes

  • Version 7.7.1 of KNOPPIX is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (jessie), testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) for newer graphics drivers or desktop software packages. It uses Linux kernel 4.7.9 (not affected by the "Dirty Cow Bug") and xorg 7.7 (core 1.18.1) for supporting current computer hardware.
  • Kernel Patches: cloop, aufs, BFQ, TCP Stealth.
  • In addition to the 32bit standard kernel, the 64bit version of the same kernel is installed, supporting systems with more than 4GB of RAM and chroot to 64-bit installations for system rescue tasks. The bootloader will start the 64bit kernel automatically if a 64bit-capable CPU is detected (if not manually specified otherwise).
  • New in 7.7.1:
    • Kernel and system software (Debian Jessie+Stretch) updated,
    • New, experimental version of 3D window manager compiz,
    • LXDE (Default) with filemanager PCMANFM 1.2.4, KDE 5.7.4 (boot option knoppix desktop=kde), GNOME 3.22 (boot option knoppix desktop=gnome),
    • Wine version 1.9.20 (git) for integration of Windows (TM) based programs,
    • qemu-kvm 2.6 for (para-)virtualization.
    • electrum 2.6.4 for managing Bitcoin Wallets,
    • Experimental support for UEFI-Boot and Secure Boot (USB version only)

64-bit Support

Knoppix supports 32-bit and 64-bit PCs. During bootup it will detect your CPU and automatically load the correct version.
