Andreas LoiblHi! This is my website where I share news about my work on Kanotix, HowTos, ideas and new developments, and - probably most important - unofficial test images where you can try the latest features and updates for yourself. If you are looking for official Kanotix releases and infos check out the Kanotix website and Kanotix at Distrowatch. For support try the Kanotix Forum or IRC on irc.freenode.net, Channel #kanotix (my nickname: acritox) 

Have fun with Kanotix!

Nightly builds

Nightly builds are automated builds every night of the latest development code of KANOTIX and with the latest packages from the repositories.

This process is fully automated, they are not tested at all, so be warned and expect them to have bugs or be completly broken from time to time...

You can find the images at: http://nightly.kanotix.acritox.com/
