1.) Reported by Mkurz

The "Start Samba Server" does not create proper shares. The script /usr/sbin/sambastart does not write a correct /etc/samba/smb.conf file. It has worked in Version till 4.02, but with 5.0 it does not.

2.) Reported by phil42

UPDATE: This is not a bug. Previous behavior can be restored with a KDE panel configuration change.

If the panel is moved to the top of the screen, hidden, and the panel-hiding buttons are removed, it does not reappear when the pointer moves to the top of the screen.

3.) Reported by Jackobli

Seems that the persistant homedir does not work properly. I can create a persistant home on my USB-Stick. But the home will not be loaded on the next boot (home=/dev/sda1). --Jackobli 00:37, 21 Mar 2006 (GMT)

4.) Reported by jab (jeff@jab.org)

Radeon xorg driver does not work with Dell 2405FPW monitor and radeon 9250 card; when X starts the screen goes blank and is unrecoverable (alt-backspace and ctrl-alt-f2 do nothing). This worked fine in knoppix 4.0.2 and xfree86. I can use the vesa driver (knoppix lang=us xmodule=vesa) but that really limits my screen resolution.

5.) Reported by MrMoor

"knoppix bootfrom=/dev/hdc3/KNOPPIX_V5*.iso" does not work. During boot I get:

Accessing KNOPPIX DVD at /cdrom2.loop/KNOPPIX_V5*.iso...ERROR: Module cloop is in use
umount: Device or resource is busy
insmod: error inserting '/cdrom/boot/modules/cloop.ko': -1 File exists
insmod: can't read '/modules/cloop.ko': no such file or directory
Found primary KNOPPIX compressed image at /cdrom2/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX.
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Device or resource busy

and it continues to boot from DVD. hdc3/KNOPPIX_V5.0DVD-2006-02-25-EN.iso is -rwxr-xr-x KNOPPIX:KNOPPIX on ext3.

6.) Reported by mkrufky (mkrufky at linuxtv dot org)

Unable to mount Compact Flash drives connected via an IDE interface. This worked in all Knoppix versions 3.8 through 4.0.2, I have not tried in versions earlier than 3.8.

7.) Reported by mkrufky (mkrufky at linuxtv dot org)

Missing hybrid v4l/dvb kernel modules: cx88-dvb, saa7134-dvb, but their dependencies are all present. This causes bugs in the cx88 driver (loud static on startup), due to some missing init code that should run in the missing cx88-dvb module. Of course, the lack of these modules also prevents DVB operation for those devices.
