    Question Live CD issues. Yeah, I'm a N00B.

    I don't have much experience with linux but I know it's not supposed to hang on the boot.
    It hangs on knoppix booting and gives a low version (like 2.something).

    I am using a Toshiba A215 series with 4G ram.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem. Is there a way to update the iso file to incluse a newer version of knoppix?

    Be nice to me. Just cuz I don't know much about live cd doesn't mean I'm a comptard. ~LOL~

    Thanks

    Have you read the sticky thread? http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=9618

    Have you tried "cheatcodes"?
    My BT3 will not boot on my acer laptop unless I use some. At the boot screen, scroll to the VESA option, press tab, then type this in after all the other stuff: acpi=off noapic
    The following statement is true:
    The previous statement is false.
    :confused:

    Nope, didn't make a difference. I used a different brand of DVD to encode it and it froze at the same point. Right after init-knoppix ver 2.78.

    Havent a clue what you mean by cheat codes since it never gets very far into the boot process. Haven't seen a vesa option nor any tabs.

    Last time I checked BackTrack isn't knoppix.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Sounds like the live-CD he is trying to run is not Back|Track.

    Okay, just making sure I wasn't at the wrong forum or anything. Hey Homer, try these guys over here. They should be able to help you out better.
