Knoppix 7.5.0: Linux Kernel 64 bits header files and enable 3D for VMware video driver.

Hello Klaus,
Thank you very much for the new Knoppix 7.5.0 and I hope you and your family are doing well.

Could you please provide the Linux Kernel 64 bits header files of Knoppix 7.5.0 ?
Only the 32 bits Linux Kernel header files are included in your DVD
and these header files are required to compile 64 bits Kernel modules.

Could you please also enable by default the "composite" (3D) extension for the VMware video driver ? 3D is currently disabled for VMware by the line echo "export NOCOMPOSITE=1" >/tmp/hwsetup.env in the /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig file (HW auto-detection). 3D can be forced by using the "3d" kernel cheatcode but as far as I can tell 3D rendering works well with Knoppix 7.4.2 and 7.5.0 and the latest the latest VMware Workstation 11.1.0. It probably also works well on older versions of VMware. It works with & without the VMware tools installed and also under various versions of the Harware compatibility. Most of the VMware drivers are now included in the main stream Kernel tree and MESA-DRI is already included within Knoppix 7.4.2 and 7.5.0. So it would be better now to enable 3D by default for VMware Knoppix guests knowing that
the "no3d" kernel cheatcode can still be used.

As always, thank you so much for all these years of great development !
Best Regards,
