Presented Kanotix2013 with Steam pre-installed

In CeBIT This week's distribution has been presented Kanotix 2013, which incorporates auto-detection of proprietary drivers for Nvidia and AMD GPUs, and comes with the Steam client for GNU / Linux pre-installed.

The graphs supported by this autodetection are the series GeForce9, HD5000 and above, although logically it also incorporates OpenSource drivers.

The best thing about this "new" distro is that it is based on Debian (Wheezy) with a KDE environment, as well as incorporating some of the latest software packages:

  • Kernel 3.8.2 (Ubuntu 3.8.0-10 patched)
  • Nvidia 313.18 and Fglrx 13.2 Beta 
  • Table 9.1 for Open Source drivers
  • amarok 2.7.0
  • Wine 1.5.25
  • LibreOffice 4.0.0
  • Grub 2.00 (prepared for installation on computers with UEFI)
  • Iceweasel 19

    Going down to test, my GTX580 graphics gives me problems with the drivers that
    It brings Linux by default, I hope that with KANOTIX it works correctly.

    Did you try that solution of the -nomodeset on boot? I have ever needed it with desktop PCs with integrated graphics + graphics.

    Are you on Steam? For something else it is not valid, in the discussion forums there are all kinds of "goings-on" to find the right driver. What distro are you using?
