And it appears that they have repeated their error with KNOPPIX 4.0
Unionfs is still there, and it is still broken. (kernel oops)
Hopefully they came up with a "nounionfs" cheatcode by now
I like to use newer knoppix on some of the newer computers with SATA hard drives for image backups like the Dell GX280s.
By the way, Dell is getting REALLY cheap with their motherboards. The 280 motherboard comes with a primary and secondary SATA controller, but since chassis expansion space is limited they chose not to support the secondary controller. All they did was eliminate the $0.02 plastic socket from the side of the motherboard. The solder points are still there, but no socket. VERY annoying when you are trying to clone SATA hard drives.
Older knoppix and DSL do not recogize the controller. Even the 2.4.27 kernel in knoppix 3.7?
Knoppix could use an alternative 2.4.x kernel, it could use a "nounionfs" and it should also bring back captive-ntfs
I really liked the knoppix 3.4 version that was used as the base for DSL 0.8+
