Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Knoppix Boot CD

Malte, I personally don't have any real need for an OpenACS Knoppix boot CD at all, but it is cool enough that I would want to burn a few just to try it and have available to hand out to friends and acquaintances! (Sorry, no demo data for you.)

How does this Knoppix install work exactly? E.g., it needs to write to a hard disk at least for the PostgreSQL database, right, so how/where does it do that? Is this Knoppix install adequate for setting up a Production OpenACS instance too, or is it strictly for quick demos and the like? And why?

(Haven't see Malte's Knoppix CD yet...)

You can write to a ram disk. I guess that's what PostgreSQL is doing there. You can install your Knoppix boot system to your harddrive, however that because Knoppix still is a mixture of Debian and RedHat it is usually not recommended.
