    PuppEX Tahr Linux Live CD with kernel 3.17.2-puppex

    A "review" of PuppEX Tahr

    I simply must cite a member of Puppy Linux Forum: This is astonishing - outstanding even, boots fast and absolutely fly's on my old X60 Thinkpad. Lost for words to describe just how good this is. Anyone that want's a real OS experience and more should try this. Still playing - looking better all the time.

    ExTiX with Gnome 3.10 :: Now based on Ubuntu 14.04.1

    ExTiX 14.1.2 is mentioned on Distrowatch.com's frontpage. It has dramatically increased the download rate (as always).

    Yes of course you shall check everyone of my uploads with md5sum. That's why I always enclose a md5 file.

    Thank you for checking. I did use Firefox in Mint. I am messaging you on my Chromebook right now
    so it will be later when I try again on the other laptop. I don't know what happened as no error was given in Firefox downloader in mint 17 mate 64bit. Maybe just a bad spot in the universe kind of day I guess.

    I did not mean to be a PITA. I just thought maybe something might
    have gone wrong on the upload is all. Because as a Linux distro team member
    who downloads and tests new developer scripts and reports back.

    I every once in while get a corrupt uploaded file. Hence the md5sum checks always.

    Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

    The link you are referring to (http://ftp.se.linux.org/distribution...1mb-101206.iso) is from 2010.

    This is the correct link now: ftp://ftp.svenskalinuxforeningen.se/...3mb-140615.iso

    But thanks for your report. I see now that the word DOWNLOAD is also a link. To the version from 2010 as you said. (It's changed now).

    Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

    Yes sir.

    http://multibootcd.exton.net/

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

    http://ftp.se.linux.org/distribution...1mb-101206.iso

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

    http://postmyimage.com/img2/611_4.png

    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.

    Hi,

    Thanks, but you must have found an old site or one not edited by me. The download link at http://multibootcd.exton.net works.

    Do you remember where you found the faulty download link?

    Firefox can't find the server at ftp.se.linux.org.

    wget: unable to resolve host address `ftp.se.linux.org'
    Funny part was I got the md5sum text file OK through Firefox download.
    Just letting you know.

    Edit: Since site download button did not work for ISO. Further research lead me to

    ftp://ftp.svenskalinuxforeningen.se/...butions/exton/

    which works for my area of Texas.

    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.
