[linrad] Re: Second round on HD; slight progress, but no 'Linrad'; Re: [linrad] Re: Directories and ETH-networks; Re: [linrad] new knoppix.iso
Try running Linrad from the Live CD after you have installed the HD
version. It may put the files onto the disk.
It is also possible that a directory is missing on the HD. Look carefully
at the error messages when you boot both from the HD and with Live CD, and
if this is the case, create the necessary directory.
There should be no problem downloading and installing svgalib and Linrad
in the usual fashion from the HD version.
Maybe one of the Linux experts knows about the assignment of /root.old as
/initrd. That seems concerning to me...

Thanks again Roger!
As I stated to Rein in a private mail, with Linux it seems
like we are living in an Aquarium: we see that there is much
on the other side of the glass, but we are not able to reach
it (I think that Mike/W5UC will like this)... [no worries, the
problem is mainly over here: Zaba's ignorance... only 3 years].
Despite reinstalling your first W3SZ-Knoppix.iso onto the HD,
I did not get 'Linrad' running from there (hopefully there
have been no intermediate versions of the *.iso). It complains
about the missing ~linrad-01.33 directory and continues loading
all of the Knoppix graphics. The only positive difference this
time is that all of the Network-stuff works. I did the apt-get
update/upgrade and got 239 new packages in 258 MB downloads
(this all will be ready and waiting for us on your second CD).
Actually I did 'sudo knoppix-installer' from the CD, and did
not take a "Beginner"-configuration, but the option: "just as
on the CD". This means no login when starting Linux (safety!).
During boot from HD it lists about 20 errors relating to mkdir
mentioning UNIONFS and missing ~linrad01.33 directories or files.
The /home/knoppix directory does not hold linrad-01.33 ...
it only shows ('ls'): Desktop none tmp
The prompt looks like: root@1[knoppix]#
'updatedb' and 'locate' yields the same as described (below)
during the first install to HD... 'locate' also fails to find
anything relating to an installed SVGALIB....
So there is clearly something missing. There is plenty of
KNOPPIX-software on the HD... 'df' lists 2.3 GB of KNOPPIX.
A bit worrying is the listing of 'df' showing the following:
/dev/hda7 (mounted as /)
/dev/root.old (mounted as /initrd)
Wonder if this root.old is creating any confusion...?
All of the above is relating only to one of the many PC's.
The Live_CD is meant for a quick introduction to 'Linrad'
in real-world circumstances. Would I miss anything if I do
it the old way: i.e. install pure Knoppix and add the two:
SVGALIB 1.9.21 and Linrad-01.33 as usual? The only difference
I notice is the far better screen resolution of the Live_CD
Linrad's upon opening the application first time after boot.
Setting screen parameters (S) does not give me a choice of
the finer resolutions (beyond 1024x768) usually with the
private installs of SVGALIB and 'Linrad'.

P.S. I noticed the knoppix.img and knoppix.sh files on the
FAT-drive (C:\ in Windows); so "config-storage" works.
