Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Excellent CDrom and DVDrom used during work for rescue of various machines, cloning drives, and doesn't affect the drives worked-on if you need to fix or copy stuff. Mostly rescuing Windows machines, but also occasional sprinkling of Linux machines too. Recent interest in UEFI bootup also brought this distro to the forefront. We use a few versions, but latest version at moment is 7.6. If limited to CDrom, we will use an older version.

Recommended distro for anyone who needs a live distro.

Because I needed light distro I could not use DVD version of current KNOPPIX, which is above 4GB. So, I stayed with older KNOPPIX CD version 7.2.0 from 2013, which still runs great on USB stick with my old hardware. I wish Mr Knopper still supported CD version same way like live DVD. Updating packages for KNOPPIX live CD version and keeping it up to date can be tedious and time consuming.
There is planty of old hardware out there and current KNOPPIX live CD would be perfect for it. Great distro anyway.
Please create current version of KNOPPIX Live CD.
