Knoppix 5



It’s hard to believe it’s time for a version 5 of knoppix, but … I guess it is. I was just booting up Knoppix 4 in a qemu session last night and already several days behind 5… Anyway, Knoppix 5 was released on June 2nd. I saw the note the day after the Ubuntu dapper release, but never got to do a post. (It’s actually 5.0.1 available for download – the 5.0 release was released at CeBiT). Anyway, there are DVD and CD iso’s and bittorrent downloads are available. You might look here for a list of torrent download links.


For those that don’t know, knoppix is a livecd distribution of linux (it was one of, if not the first in that category….) It packs in a good number of applications, from desktop software, servers, network clients of various sorts and a good number of utilities that can be helpful in working with “sick computers”.

It’s basically having a portable/bootable linux distribution available at almost any pc you visit.
