Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.1.1 is out.
Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.1.0 is out.
You can experiece amazing high-speed boot!!
"LCAT" (Live CD Acceleration Toolkit) is out.
Accelerated-KNOPPIX and the Acceleration Kit for cloop Live CD was released under GPL (GNU Public Licence).
Accelerated-KNOPPIX is a fast boot KNOPPIX by optimizing start-up part of live CD.
The development of Acclerated-KNOPPIX is developed by Alpha Systems Inc. and adopted as a "Project of Infrastructure
Building for OpenSource-Software 2005" by Information-Technology Promotion Agency, Japan. We evolve live CD to not only
trial, but the base of open source software.
"A LiveCD is an operating system stored on a bootable CD-ROM that can be executed from it, without installation into a
hard drive. Live CDs have a reputation for supporting advanced auto-configuration and plug-and-play functionality.
This is necessary so as to avoid requiring the user to configure the system each time it boots, and to make them easily
usable by those who are new to the operating system. " (Wikipedia.com)
It is not only KNOPPIX to benefit from the development of boot time improvement, but also other Live CDs which use cloop
The target of this project is to make the start time of conventional live CD below the half !
The mechanism of acceleration in the live CD
The visualization of access situation to cloop
A cloop profiler is developed in order to grasp the access situation of CD.
Rearrangement of a cloop block, and development of a driver for cloop
Although various files are referred to in Live CD in the case of a system startup, since each position of media is dotted
with the file, a lot of seeking will generate it at the time of reading. If the seek time of this CD is lost, it will be
said that data can be transmitted at a stretch from CD. Then, the seek time of a pickup is reduced by rearranging the file
read at the time of starting on a block level.
The optimization of entire boot sequence
Live CD performs automatic recognition of the peripheral equipment of PC at the boot sequence. Although the cache of the
file required for starting of a desktop are predicted and carried out in the meantime, if there are few memories which can
be used for cache, starting will become slow conversely. By this development, memory capacity is examining making it an effect
show up at least because the predicted data carries out the cache of the compression image of cloop as it is.

!ATTENTION! Thank you for your interest in Acclerated KNOPPIX. Due to heavy demand, it is now very hard to download iso image.
Please try again later.
->English version KNOPPIX can be used by inputting the following boot option. boot:knoppix lang=us
Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.1.1 | http://knoppix.alpha.co.jp/iso/
1.0 -> 1.1 Changelog
OpenOffice.org version up (2.0.1 -> 2.0.2.).
MultiVNC1.4.1 is install. http://www.alpha.co.jp/biz/rdg/multivnc/

0.9 -> 1.0 Changelog
The base of KNOPPIX was changed to Version 4.0.2. Enjoy KNOPPIX that is increased start up speed!
The start sequence was reviewed. Not only the start sequence but also the block of the data of the application was read ahead.
The competition of the CD-ROM access generated in the data block lookahead has been decreased.
Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.0.9 | http://knoppix.alpha.co.jp/iso/
0.8 -> 0.9 Changelog
The detection of the serial device was divided as part of boot sequence that executes concurrently in parallel with
other device detection. The service process runs parallel and is started. It uses the following command to "prelink"
the load module. It corresponded to an external drive that was not possible to start by the previous version.
Please input the option that's below when KNOPPIX start up by an external drive.
boot: knoppix usbboot
boot: knoppix fwboot
Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.0.8 | http://knoppix.alpha.co.jp/iso/
!CAUTION! Accelerated-KNOPPIX Ver.0.8 can't boot from USB and Firewire CD-ROM drive
