The kernel repository is mainly there in order to provide the sources
for the installed kernel binary on Knoppix for anyone who wishes to
recompile, and in order to follow the GPL. However, on the DVD version
of Knoppix, the full matching kernel source is also installed in
/usr/src, so in theory, you don't really need a kernel repository.

No. Thanks for the notification, I'm uploading the missing 3.6.11 source
right now.

If you need it, I can also upload the binary package. But Knoppix 7.1
will contain kernel 3.7.7, so the 3.7.6 source is kind of obsolete, and
I tend to remove it since I never issued a binary package version.

Ok, also uploading Kernel 3.7.7 binary and source right now.
