A new version of exGENT live with Cinnamon 1.6.7 and kernel 3.8.8

Posted 04-30-2013 at 09:40 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The best thing with exGENT (Gentoo) Linux Live DVD is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to easily install the system to hard drive and/or a USB stick.

Quick install to Hard Drive and/or USB stick
exGENT Linux can be installed to hard drive and/or a usb pen drive in 1 – 5 min. (Depending on computer type). This means that all of you who might hesitate to perform a normal Gentoo installation – which can take up to a couple of days – now have the chance to...

Run your Slackware 64bit system even better with the latest kernel!

Posted 04-15-2013 at 02:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.0 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk , SlackEX, Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel 3.2.29 huge. “My” kernel 3.8.7-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.8.7 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130412.

Yet another new version of exGENT (Gentoo) with LXDE

Posted 04-15-2013 at 02:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.

About DebEX Barebone
The system is a based on Debian Wheezy (upcoming Debian 7). There is also certain elements of Debian Sid (unstable). LXDE is used as Desktop environment. “The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE) is an extremely fast-performing and energy-saving desktop environment“. I have replaced the original Debian kernel 3.2 with “my special” kernel 3.8.0-15-exton (Kernel.org’s 3.8.4, stable). The system language is English.
