May 18 2020: Using Live Linux (Knoppix).
To run Live Linux (Knoppix) in a Virtual Machine using Oracle VirtualBox on a machine on campus, you can choose Knoppix from your MyApps as soon as you log into Windows. If Knoppix does not show up in your MyApps after you login, you may look for C:\Knoppix\Knoppix.vbox and double click on the icon.

To use Knoppix from your home machine, or on your laptop, you will need to download and install Oracle VirtualBox for your operating system first and then download the Knoppix VirtualBox VM (approx 5GB file and this might take a while to download). When the download completes:
  1. Unzip the downloaded zip file (Right click and Select "Extract All")
  2. Read and follow the instructions in the PLEASE-README-FIRST.txt file. It has instructions for running Knoppix on your home machine.
  3. Should you still have difficulty running Knoppix on your home machine/laptop you may ask your instructor or the Learning Centre ULG leaders for additional help in troubleshooting why Knoppix was not working on your home machine/laptop.
