List V3.9 2005-05-27 bugs here

1.) It seems that v3.9's UnionFS has broken Debian package management. To reproduce the bug: Boot Knoppix V3.9, download a package & install it.

wget http://debian.mirrors.pair.com/pool/main/a/aterm/aterm_0.4.2-11_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i aterm_0.4.2-11_i386.deb

Confirmed. Note that apt-get update; apt-get upgrade gets partially through an install before freezing, not all packages trigger this bug.

2.) The "ub" kernel module is still compiled into the kernel. This prevents Knoppix from booting on USB CD/DVD-ROMs. <a href="http://linux.usc.edu/pipermail/usclug-chat/2004-December/000111.html">This has been known since Linux 2.6.9</a>. --PopeFelix 16:29, 4 Jun 2005 (GMT)

3.) Please config out CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UB (the ub driver). This driver has the bizzare side effect of stopping the usb-storage driver from ever seeing a USB device, irrespective of whether the ub module is loaded or not. As PopeFelix noted, this stops knoppix being able to use USB CD/DVD drives. One reason I have switched to kanotix is that absence of the ub driver.

4.) Please use the "ati" driver for ATI Radeon 7000 based video cards. Mine was detected properly, but the generic "vesa" driver was loaded, so no 3D for me!!
