28-FEB-2014: Released version 18 in both 64-bit and 32-bit versions. This version adds Python 3.3, upgrades Subversion to version 1.8, and is based on Xubuntu 12 LTS ("Precise Pangolin"). The default memory allocation has been increased to 1 GB for the 64-bit version, and both versions now have more free space available on their disk images.
 05-FEB-2014: Uploaded a 32-bit version of version 17, named 17-m32, for those who have trouble running the 64-bit version. Also, we've found that the 64-bit version needs its memory allocation bumped up to 1 GB for stability, so please make that change if you're currently using that version.

13-APR-2013: Version 17 released. Ubuntu+LKB now requires an x86 CPU with 64-bit extensions (so-called amd64, Intel 64, or EM64T capabilities), which is true of most hardware made in the last several years. This was done in order to include ACE, the Answer Constraint Engine. English Resource Grammar version 1212 in the format required by ACE has also been added.

10-APR-2013: Version 16 released. This includes a new LKB version, a default .lkbrc file with (lui-initialize), and python3.

To run Ubuntu+LKB 17 and later under VirtualBox, you will also need:
  • A 64-bit CPU (amd64, Intel 64, or EM64T) -- this includes recent Xeons and all Core 2 and higher processors.
  • At least 512 MB of RAM over and above what your OS requires.
  • Approximately 5.8 GB of available disk space. (1.8 GB of this is for the installation files, which can be deleted after installation)

If you need a less resource-intensive solution, the older Knoppix-based versions are still available from the download site. They require only 32-bit CPU and 512 megabytes of RAM, plus 750 megabytes of free disk space if you choose to run under VirtualBox.

To boot the CD or USB version, you need at least the following:
  • An Intel-compatible CPU, i486 or better (including Intel Macs)
  • An SVGA-compatible graphics card
  • A serial, PS/2, or USB mouse
  • The ability to boot from CD or USB.
 To run under VirtualBox, you will also need:
  • At least 512 MB of RAM; 1 GB or more is recommended.
  • Approximately 2.5 GB of available disk space. (750 MB of this is for the installation files, which can be deleted after installation)

  If you're in a hurry and know what you're doing, you can go straight to the download directory.

Running in VirtualBox

Changed:
<
<
KnoppixLKB can be run in a window under VirtualBox. For many users this is the simplest method. Click here for setup instructions.

Booting from a USB stick

If you have a Windows system available and your computer can boot from a USB drive, you can install to a USB drive.

Booting from CD

Download the CD image (the file ending in ".iso") from the download directory.

You'll need to burn this image to a CD. Do NOT just copy the .iso file to the CD; it won't work.

  • If you're running Windows, you should use something like ISO Recorder to burn the image.
  • If you're using a Mac, you should double-click the .iso file to open it, then run Disk Utility, select the .iso file, and click Burn. The image is 646 megabytes and should fit on any standard CD blank.
  • If you're using Linux, your distribution probably provides CD-burning tools. Right click the ISO file and see if you have an option to burn it to disk.

To boot the CD, you may need to change your BIOS configuration; try it first, though, it may just work.

  • If you have a Dell system, tapping F12 (or F11) once or twice when the Dell logo appears will probably pop up a menu that will let you select a boot device.
  • Intel Mac users should press and hold the C key when they hear the power-on chime.

When the CD finishes booting, click the Usage Notes.html file on the desktop for more information.

Additional Info

Troubleshooting

Linux taskbar not showing up at bottom of display: This happens sometimes in VirtualBox. Resize the VirtualBox window slightly and the taskbar should appear.

Deleted:
<
<
Monitor displays "INPUT OUT OF RANGE" or a similar error: This means Knoppix is detecting your monitor and/or graphics card improperly. Try manually specifying both the type of graphics card you have and your monitor's resolution. For example, if you have an NVIDIA card and your monitor can handle a maximum of 1680x1050, you would type the following at the boot: prompt:
knoppix xmodule=nv screen=1680x1050

Supported values for "xmodule" are ati, radeon, fbdev, vesa, savage, s3, nv, i810, mga, svga, and tseng. If you don't know which is correct, it's safe to try them one at a time until you find one that works.

I/O errors, system hangs during boot, boot fails: These can be caused by a damaged CD, or a CD that was not burned properly. Try typing knoppix testcd at the boot: prompt to test your CD.

 Writing to a shared folder gives "permission denied" in Windows 7: Right-click the folder you're sharing (in Windows, not in VirtualBox ) and make sure "Read only" isn't checked. Also note that it appears some folders cannot be successfully shared -- e.g. "Desktop."

Known Issues

  • Because of a conflict between SCIM and [incr_tsdb()], input method switching does not work inside the itsdb podium.
Deleted:
<
<
  • Due to limited space on the CD, not all foreign language fonts and input methods are loaded. However, if you need one that's not on there, let me know; I can probably squeeze it in.
  • Tap-to-click does not work on MacBooks.
 
  • The clock is wrong. Even if it looks right, it's probably wrong. See ticket #14 for the hairy details.
  • Font sizes in Emacs and the incr_tsdb podium change dramatically when they are launched after the VirtualBox window is resized. See ticket #19.

7-JUL-2010: For those of you waiting for version 11, feel free to check out the release candidate in the pre-release directory. It fixes the shared folder issues in 10. I'm hoping to do a final release of this version with a few other fixes later this month.

16-JUN-2010: Version 10 is out. This version should fix the LISP heap problems in version 9, and the resulting LKB instability.

*EDIT:* Looks like VirtualBox shared folders are broken in 10. I apologize, and will fix this in version 11. (Ticket #21)

26-MAY-2010: LKB is unstable on version 9, due to the LISP heap being scaled back to a very small size. (Ticket #18) I'm withdrawing that version, and recommending everyone switch to version 8 until I get 9 debugged. I've generated a VirtualBox appliance for 8, to make switching over easy for those of you who prefer that installation method.

07-MAY-2010: KnoppixLKB is now available as a VirtualBox appliance. This provides a much quicker and easier way to get KnoppixLKB up and running on VirtualBox. I have also provided instructions for creating a bootable USB drive from Windows.

06-MAY-2010: The download sites have changed. The preferred site is now http://uakari.ling.washington.edu/knoppixlkb/, and the site on pongo.ling.washington.edu is being phased out.

09-APR-2010: Version 9 is out. New in this release:

  • Now based on Knoppix 6.2.1. This mainly brings better hardware support and better video autodetection. If you needed command-line parameters to get a usable display in version 8, you may not need them anymore.
  • VirtualBox Guest Additions have been upgraded to version 3.1.4. This means that running under VirtualBox versions earlier than 3.1.4 is no longer supported.
  • MacBook trackpad support is greatly improved; two-finger scrolling and two-finger right clicks now work, making it possible to do work on a MacBook without keyboard hacks or an external mouse. Tap-to-click is still not available, however.
  • The screen saver is now automatically disabled when running under VirtualBox.
  • I've removed the BitTorrent download links. The torrents were always poorly seeded and were a headache for me to maintain. If you need a restartable download, try using a client that can restart HTTP downloads, such as wget.
  • Behind the scenes, the build process has been completely revamped to make it more managable and make the process of generating a new release less error-prone. Please let me know if you find any problems with this release, especially things that used to work under version 8 that don't work now.

07-MAY-2010: KnoppixLKB is now available as a VirtualBox appliance. This provides a much quicker and easier way to get KnoppixLKB up and running on VirtualBox. I have also provided instructions for creating a bootable USB drive from Windows.
 06-MAY-2010: The download sites have changed. The preferred site is now http://uakari.ling.washington.edu/knoppixlkb/, and the site on pongo.ling.washington.edu is being phased out.

09-APR-2010: Version 9 is out. New in this release:

  • The ability to boot from CD or USB.

To run under VirtualBox, you will also need:

  • At least 512 MB of RAM; 1 GB or more is recommended.
  • Approximately 2.5 GB of available disk space. (750 MB of this is for the installation files, which can be deleted after installation)

To save your files when working from CD you'll need one of the following: a working Internet connection, a USB memory stick, or a hard disk partition Knoppix can recognize.

06-MAY-2010: The download sites have changed. The preferred site is now http://uakari.ling.washington.edu/knoppixlkb/, and the site on pongo.ling.washington.edu is being phased out.
 09-APR-2010: Version 9 is out. New in this release:
  • Now based on Knoppix 6.2.1. This mainly brings better hardware support and better video autodetection. If you needed command-line parameters to get a usable display in version 8, you may not need them anymore.
  • VirtualBox Guest Additions have been upgraded to version 3.1.4. This means that running under VirtualBox versions earlier than 3.1.4 is no longer supported.
Line: 10 to 11
 
  • The screen saver is now automatically disabled when running under VirtualBox.
  • I've removed the BitTorrent download links. The torrents were always poorly seeded and were a headache for me to maintain. If you need a restartable download, try using a client that can restart HTTP downloads, such as wget.
  • Behind the scenes, the build process has been completely revamped to make it more managable and make the process of generating a new release less error-prone. Please let me know if you find any problems with this release, especially things that used to work under version 8 that don't work now.

10-MAR-2010: I'm beginning work on Version 9, which will be based on Knoppix 6.2.1. As part of this, I'm making an overdue effort to automate much of the process; this will make releases easier and more consistent, and let me version control changes. Feel free to check out the Trac for the new build scripts.

23-JUL-2009: Version 8 is out. New in this release:

  • VirtualBox Guest Additions are now included, and load automatically if Knoppix+LKB detects it's running under VirtualBox. This means you can now resize the VirtualBox window, access shared folders, and use dynamic mouse pointer integration. VirtualBox version 2.2.2 or later is required. See KnoppixLKBVirtualBox for instructions on setting up VirtualBox, and see the "Usage Notes.html" file on the Knoppix desktop for information on mounting shared folders.
  • Arabic and IPA fonts are now included. I'm not sure how well LUI and Trollet currently support Arabic, but the fonts are there and work in Emacs.
  • Many additional input methods are now supported in SCIM, via the "scim-tables-additional" package. This includes a table-based input method for IPA. There do appear to be some coding system issues with IPA in Emacs -- it works using Emacs' own input method, but using SCIM gives blank squares. SCIM works OK for IPA in other apps, however.
  • The "Usage Notes.html" file has been revised to be less UW-centric, since we now have several users outside the UW community.

08-MAY-2009: Version 7 is out. Based on some user feedback I've added a few new features in this release:

  • Trollet, Pavel Mihaylov's alternative LKB frontend.
  • Pavel Mihaylov's alternative, Pango-enabled LUI. This has been installed as "pangolui", as recommended on LkbLui. Issue (lui-initialize :lui "pangolui") at the LKB: prompt to load. This LUI is intended to offer better support for non-English character sets.
  • Basic Thai language support, in the form of Thai fonts and a Thai SCIM input method. This is probably still not complete, but may be enough to do basic work in the language.

30-APR-2009: I just upgraded to VirtualBox 2.2.2, and it appears to have fixed whatever was preventing LKB from working, at least under MacOS. VirtualBox is free for academic and personal use, and may prove more convenient for some of you than rebooting to run Knoppix+LKB. Indeed, I use it heavily for Knoppix+LKB development and remastering. To boot Knoppix+LKB in VirtualBox, configure it for Linux and connect the Knoppix+LKB ISO image to the virtual machine's CD-ROM drive.

29-APR-2009: Version 6 is out. This release fixes the missing /home/knoppix/tmp directory in version 5, and updates the LKB version to 2009-04-27. I've also removed some unneeded archive files from the LKB installation, shrinking the CD image by about 40 megabytes.

27-APR-2009: Version 5 is out. A request for Korean fonts prompted me to begin adding proper foreign language support:

  • The default locale is now "en_US.UTF-8" instead of "C".
  • SCIM is now included. Currently the only input methods on the CD are English, Hangul, and Raw Code, but I can easily add more as needed.
  • The ttf-unfonts package has been installed to provide Korean font support.

Note: There is a bug in this version; LKB may complain about /home/knoppix/tmp not being writable when loading a grammar. I will do another release to fix this soon, but in the mean time, just open a terminal and do "mkdir tmp". I think this bug was actually introduced in Version 4, but I didn't notice it until now.

17-MAR-2009:Version 4 is out. This is a complete rebuild based on Knoppix v6.0.1. It features greatly improved hardware support, especially for laptops, and a new lightweight desktop manager. Boot time has also been reduced significantly (by about 1 minute on my test system.)

Because of the new desktop manager, the user interface has changed somewhat. After booting the new version, please click the Usage Notes.html file for details.

The .iso is a bootable CD image; do NOT just copy it to a CD. If you're running Windows, you should use something like ISO Recorder to burn the image. If you're using a Mac, you should double-click the .iso file to open it, then run Disk Utility, select the .iso file, and click Burn.

The image is approximately 593 megabytes. It should fit on any standard-size CD-R blank.

  • Pavel Mihaylov's alternative, Pango-enabled LUI. This has been installed as "pangolui", as recommended on LkbLui. Issue (lui-initialize :lui "pangolui") at the LKB: prompt to load. This LUI is intended to offer better support for non-English character sets.
  • Basic Thai language support, in the form of Thai fonts and a Thai SCIM input method. This is probably still not complete, but may be enough to do basic work in the language.
 30-APR-2009: I just upgraded to VirtualBox 2.2.2, and it appears to have fixed whatever was preventing LKB from working, at least under MacOS. VirtualBox is free for academic and personal use, and may prove more convenient for some of you than rebooting to run Knoppix+LKB. Indeed, I use it heavily for Knoppix+LKB development and remastering. To boot Knoppix+LKB in VirtualBox, configure it for Linux and connect the Knoppix+LKB ISO image to the virtual machine's CD-ROM drive.

29-APR-2009: Version 6 is out. This release fixes the missing /home/knoppix/tmp directory in version 5, and updates the LKB version to 2009-04-27. I've also removed some unneeded archive files from the LKB installation, shrinking the CD image by about 40 megabytes.

Note: There is a bug in this version; LKB may complain about /home/knoppix/tmp not being writable when loading a grammar. I will do another release to fix this soon, but in the mean time, just open a terminal and do "mkdir tmp". I think this bug was actually introduced in Version 4, but I didn't notice it until now.

 17-MAR-2009:Version 4 is out. This is a complete rebuild based on Knoppix v6.0.1. It features greatly improved hardware support, especially for laptops, and a new lightweight desktop manager. Boot time has also been reduced significantly (by about 1 minute on my test system.)

Because of the new desktop manager, the user interface has changed somewhat. After booting the new version, please click the Usage Notes.html file for details.

Overview

KNOPPIX+LKB is a bootable Linux live CD intended to make it easier for students to run LKB on their own computers. It requires no hard disk installation to run. It's similar in concept to Grammix, but defaults to English and contains somewhat more recent software.

KNOPPIX+LKB

Overview

KNOPPIX+LKB is a bootable Linux live CD intended to make it easier for students to run LKB on their own computers. It requires no hard disk installation to run. It's similar in concept to Grammix, but defaults to English and contains somewhat more recent software.

KNOPPIX+LKB is a work-in-progress and the current release should be considered a beta test. Please email brodbd@u and let me know if you find it useful, if you encounter bugs other than those listed below, or if there are software packages or fonts you'd like to see added. I'm not a linguist and I don't work much with LKB myself, so I'll be relying heavily on feedback from other users to refine this tool.

What's on it?

  • Emacs 22
  • The most current LKB as of 18-JAN-2008.
  • Most of the packages included in Knoppix. (Some, such as OpenOffice.org, had to be removed due to lack of space.)

System requirements

To boot the CD, you need at least the following:

  • An Intel-compatible CPU, i486 or better (including Intel Macs)
  • 96 megabytes RAM
  • An SVGA-compatible graphics card
  • A serial, PS/2, or USB mouse
  • The ability to boot from CD.

To run the LKB, you will probably need 256 megabytes of RAM. For complex grammars you may need 512 megabytes or more, or you may need to create a swap file.

To save your files you'll need one of the following: a working Internet connection, a USB memory stick, or a hard disk partition Knoppix can recognize.

Getting KNOPPIX+LKB

Visit the download directory and download the .iso file. There is also a checksum file (ending in .md5) if you'd like to check the integrity of your download.

The .iso is a bootable CD image; do NOT just copy it to a CD. If you're running Windows, you should use something like ISO Recorder to burn the image. If you're using a Mac, you should double-click the .iso file to open it, then run Disk Utility, select the .iso file, and click Burn.

The image is approximately 690 megabytes, so you'll need to use a 700 megabyte (aka. "80 minute") CD blank.

Using KNOPPIX+LKB

Boot the CD. If you have a Windows machine, you may need to change your BIOS configuration to boot from CD; try it first, though, it may just work. If you have a Dell system, tapping F12 during the Dell boot screen may pop up a menu that will let you select a boot device. Intel Mac users should hold down the C key while powering on the computer.

When the CD finishes booting a window will pop up with some information on how to get started and how to save your files.

Media Check

If you have trouble with the live CD failing partway through the boot process, or some software fails to load, you should make sure your burned copy isn't damaged. To do this, boot the CD and type knoppix testcd at the "boot:" prompt.

Known Issues

  • When LKB is loaded, it gives a fallback font warning. (Any tips on resolving this would be appreciated.)
  • Clicking on file and directory names in LKB file select dialogs doesn't work. You need to type the complete path in the "Selection" box -- e.g., ~/starter-grammar/script. (The symbol ~ represents your home directory.) This is a known LKB bug.
  • Due to limited space on the CD, not all foreign language fonts are loaded. However, if you need one that's not on there, let me know; I can probably squeeze it in.
  • If the CD is run from within VirtualBox, LKB fails to pop up its window. This is also true of Grammix; there seems to be some kind of interaction between the LKB and VirtualBox's virtual machine.
