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.

I use this primarily as a rescue disk. Especially when dealing with Windows. If you try to mount an NTFS partition that has a corrupted hibernation file it will even provide the mount command required to open it.

While most "live medium" Linux distributions are lightweight daypacks, KNOPPIX is a full frame backpack. It's heavier, but it's still very portable, and it's got everything you expect you may need. This is both a full toolkit for troubleshooting, and a portable desktop, with more applications installed than I usually put on a permanent desktop installation, while maintaining good organization. And, its boot prompt options allow for an amazing degree of flexibility: you can choose 32- or 64-bit kernels, you can forego a GUI or choose between several desktop environments, and you can specify all sorts of options to get the thing to boot despite odd hardware limitations.

The full "DVD version" includes a tool to burn itself to a USB stick, and can use extra space as an encrypted overlay partition. An 8 GB USB stick, which is on the small side now, will have several gigabytes free for that purpose. This allows for considerable customization. (Curiously, the trend in "live medium" images is towards ISO hybrid images, which are easy to burn to a USB stick, but use up the whole stick and lack the option for an overlay).

One peculiarity is that, if you use the encrypted overlay, during the boot process, it will pause and wait for you to enter your passphrase -- but there's no prompt, so it looks like the thing's just locked up. You just have to type it in blind when the boot process pauses.

One of the best most stable and light operating systems, whenever i'm in trouble and all else fails Knoppix saves the day. I have been using it for years and i love it.
