    Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

    Yes sir.

    The oart of the page where Download is spelled out and is a hot link.

    I am letting you know this/posting in uzbl browser so copy and paste are limited in this browser.

    Edit: tested in Iceweseal 24.6 middle link I posted that I got from your page for the Download. Right click "save as"

    error still comes up so I am not sure about where you mention The Download link works for you.
    Maybe a country filter? I have the multiboot iso already and md5sum checks out OK so I am just posting info for the multiboot site page Download link I used. Which maybe others may think is a valid Download link also in Texas, USA. That was why I posted the server link I found with a search later on. Hope it helps you out. I am a great admirer of your work,

    Happy Trails, rok.

    A new version of DebEX Barebone 64bit “Jessie” is ready!

    Subscribed. I have tinkered with your live CruxEX before.

    Just a Linux biker. I might try this on my Chromebook Acer C710 on SD flash class 10 after doing Developer mode first . That is why I subscribed.

    Why use Linux?

    The ability to play with my system is what I enjoy most. I am not an advanced user, I do not get into server stuff as I do not have to, I don't use it for work. Linux to me is easy to use, I can change it to get done what I need to, how I need to. I'm not being forced to do things a specific way. I can always change that again.

    I can play with it. I can make it mine.

    It's also usually easy to fix if I break it. No digging out a limited rescue utility offered by company X to pretty much have to reinstall everything.

    Why use Linux?

    You got that right in one!!!!! Except for the part about having to go to recovery mode. That stinks, but it's the price for too much fun.

    Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

    You got me worried so I simply had to check my kernel on a new Slackware 14.1 installation. Worked perfectly (as I assumed). This is my lilo.conf file.

    # LILO configuration file
    # generated by 'liloconfig'
    # Start LILO global section
    # Append any additional kernel parameters:
    append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
    boot = /dev/sda
    #compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.

    # Boot BMP Image.
    # Bitmap in BMP format: 640x480x8
    bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
    # Menu colors (foreground, background, shadow, highlighted
    # foreground, highlighted background, highlighted shadow):
    bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
    # Location of the option table: location x, location y, number of
    # columns, lines per column (max 15), "spill" (this is how many
    # entries must be in the first column before the next begins to
    # be used. We don't specify it here, as there's just one column.
    bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
    # Timer location x, timer location y, foreground color,
    # background color, shadow color.
    bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

    # Standard menu.
    # Or, you can comment out the bitmap menu above and
    # use a boot message with the standard menu:
    #message = /boot/boot_message.txt

    # Wait until the timeout to boot (if commented out, boot the
    # first entry immediately):
    # Timeout before the first entry boots.
    # This is given in tenths of a second, so 600 for every minute:
    timeout = 1200
    # Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
    # Normal VGA console
    vga = normal
    # Ask for video mode at boot (time out to normal in 30s)
    #vga = ask
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
    # End LILO global section
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz-3.12.1-x86_64-exton
    root = /dev/sda1
    label = Linux
    # Linux bootable partition config ends

    Please note that I had to add "lba32". Otherwise one gets errors when running /sbin/lilo.

    Please note also that my kernel can be useful if you want to build your own live Slackware system with Linux live scripts.

    No, I didn't, so maybe the download was at fault.

    Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

    Then your download of "my" kernel must have gone wrong. Did you check the zip-file with md5sum?

    Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

    Thanks for your reply,
    I am running slackware 14.1. I made the appropriate change in lilo.conf and tried to boot. The booting process hung after the kernel was recognized.The boot process ran for a while and then stopped. The screen was filled with hieroglyphics and I don't remember the details. For my purposes this is a moot issue because I was able to install a bootable version of this kernel using the makefile that is found in the esting/source/ directory of the slackware 14.1 distribution.
    best wishes, jwc

    Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

    Which Slackware system do you have?

    What do you mean by "did not load"? What do you use as boot manager? (Grub Legacy, Grub2 or what?). For the kernel "to load" you must of course change your boot loader configuration.

    If you didn't get any error messages while installing the kernel it must work.

    A new version of CruxEX 3.0 64bit with LXDE and kernel 3.9.6-x86_64-exton

    I have tried and recommended your respins and can say they are quite good.

    Your site is also one of my bookmarks on all of my Linux installs. I would never have tried Crux or GentooEX if not for you. Sabayon, though very nice is a bit heavy for my
    older gear.

    You are a asset to the Linux community and I would bar hop with you on my motorcycle anytime and buy you the beers.
