What's new in Knoppix 7.4?
For a grand overview, please see the release notes at the Knoppix website .
Version 7.4.0 of Knoppix is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (wheezy) and newer Desktop packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable (jessie). It uses kernel 3.15.6 (Figure 1) and Xorg 7.7 (core 1.16.0) for supporting current computer hardware. The bootloader now starts the 64-bit version of the kernel automatically once a 64-bit-capable CPU has been detected, so more than 4GB of RAM is correctly addressed, and chroot into a 64-bit Linux installation is possible for rescue tasks.
