Dear Mrs. Monville,
I do know what knoppix is,
it is some kind of bootable el torito CD which contains
a Linux derived from debian Gnu Linux.
It is used for some system administration and maintenance.
It is comparable to suse 9.1 Live CD.
I don't think knoppix can help you much with this,
Perhaps Portland can ? They did the debugger, and the problem is debugging.
If portland is known or reported to run better on debian,
then knoppix can help you.

I have the problem of debugging a huge cod (that I had
to change) on a
Linux cluster "cpile".
please, I am serious, do you mean computing on demand ?
cpile and cod is greek to me, perhaps the same compiler as originally will
If portland was initialli used, please continue with portland.
Of course I can connect to cpile from my home desktop
running SuSE 9.1
In spite of Comcast fast internet having at the same time the Portland
Group debugger (pgdbg) running on cpile but displaying on my home box s
and a couple of remote terminal-windows opened on cpile and running
Konqueror remotely to browse the manualls on-line on cpile ....... slows
down my debugging process. Expecially browsing the on-line P.G.
documentation (residing on cpile) is a pain ...
You have to access the documentation. A notebook will do for that.
On the other in the department where I work they only
have Windows boxes
from which I cannot connect to cpile (Linux cluster) without
installing cross-platform packages that require time and experience to
make them working. ... I do not have either one at the moment.
I was advice to use Knoppix ... I do not know what is is and what it is
I wa told: "Have you tried knoppix? It's a cd-only based linux
distribution. You can boot directly off of the CD
and don't need to install."
Does this mean that Knoppix replaces the current operating system even
if it does not get installed ? Does it run on top of Windows ?
no, knoppix bootes and does not harm the hard disk,
it can be used to repair or vipe away Windows
I'm questioning the speed of this solution ...
How fast can my debugging get if the poor PC processor has to access
the CD to be able to connect to cpile and take care of all
the message/data exchange between the PC and the Linux cluster....
sorry no idea,
I'd appreciate your comments and advice about it
