    sudo knoppix-installer : command not found

    Hi, I have just downloaded and burned Knoppix 7.0.1 to a DVD and it works fine. But when I boot my pc with the DVD in the DVD drive and open a terminal and issue the following command as root to install it to my hard drive there is an error.

    Code:
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# sudo knoppix-installer
    sudo: knoppix-installer: command not found
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# sudo knx2hdd
    sudo: knx2hdd: command not found
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix#
    Please help me with this. I have read people's views saying it is possible to install it to a hard disk even though it is meant to be a live DVD. I want to install it as the only OS on my 500 GB SATA hard drisk. Thanks.

    Re: sudo knoppix-installer : command not found

    Hello, tech291083.

    Reason:
    The executables files knoppix-installer and knx2hdd cannot be found by following the lists of folder given in the search PATH variable.

    Solution:
    Find out where these two files have been stored.
    Change to the corresponding folder.
    Launch them from this folder like this:
    Code:
    ./knoppix-installer
    and
    Code:
    ./knx2hdd
    Sorry, cannot be more precise at the moment, because I have not got any Knoppix live system at hand.

    Note:
    As you are root already there is no need to prefix any sudo the commands.

    Kind regards,
    Karl

    Posted the same message twice. Sadly this forum does not allow me to remove my own (duplicate) post although it is still the last post in the thread at this moment. So I could only delete the content.

    Re: sudo knoppix-installer : command not found

    Recently I installed Knoppix 6.4.4 to a very old computer (Compaq Presario, CPU 400 MHz). After adding some RAM from another oldie, it was straight-forward to follow the instructions in the installer. No fiddling around with hidden commands.

    The result was a 'very debian' installed system with the basic things working quite well including internet, audio and video.

    Many thanks for your reply, but can you please help me further as to how I can find out the path to these two commands. Please let me know the exact steps. I also tried the other method which meant using the Start menu and selecting Knoppix then selecting Knoppix hard drive install, something like that, but there was one process that went on forever and I had to abort it midway. It was the copying files process. Thanks.

    1. Maybe you were not patient enough, because the copying process takes long time.

    2. Try
    Code:
    sudo find / -name knoppix-installer
    sudo find / -name knx2hdd
    3. Or try an older version 6.4.4, 6.7.1 or the newest version today, 7.0.2.

    Well, you are right. First time I ran it for 45+ mins and aborted. Today I ran it for almost 2 hrs, but it looked to me that it will never end so again I aborted. So can you please tell me as to how long it take actually.

    Try an older version 6.4.4, 6.7.1 or the newest version today, 7.0.2.
    Well, I would love to try the new version. I always do. I tried to look for torrents for the latest version ie 7.0.2, but i could not find any, can you please help me? Thanks.

    http://torrent.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/

    This page has the torrent for a previous version 7.0.1, but not for the latest ie 7.0.2. Where do I look now? Thanks.

    I think two hours should be enough but I am not sure. Was it only copying from the DVD or also downloading via the internet?

    Did you check the integrity of the downloaded file with md5sum?

    Try ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix-dvd/

    It was not connected to the net at the time of HD installation and was only copying files.

    Try ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix-dvd/
    I am not sure about checking the integrity of the iso. I have already written it to a DVD. I no longer have the iso file. Can I still do the checking? If yes, then how? Thanks. I am still looking for torrents for 7.0.2
