According to the release notes, KNOPPIX 7.6.0 is now based on the latest Debian GNU/Linux 8 (Jessie) operating system, but it’s powered by a recent Linux 4.2 kernel. It includes updated graphics drivers for Nvidia and Radeon cards, as well as various packages from the Debian Testing (Stretch) and Unstable (Sid) software repositories.
“Version 7.6.0 of KNOPPIX is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (jessie) and newer graphics drivers or desktop software packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable (sid). It uses kernel 4.2.2 and xorg 7.7 (core 1.17.3) for supporting current computer hardware,” says Klaus Knopper.
