Updated 04-13-2016 at 03:48 PM by exton (MORE INFO)

I have made yet another version of SlackEX. It has the latest kernel (4.5.1, released 160412) and the latest KDE (4.14.18) Desktop Environment.

New features in version 160413 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.4.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.5.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e. Slackware 14.2. KDE is upgraded to version 4.14.18 (latest KDE version). All other component software is...

RaspEX Build 160402: Now with Kodi (XBMC) Media Center, Bluetooth, Samba, SSH and VNC4Server

Posted 04-02-2016 at 04:25 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 160402 ABOUT RaspEX
I discovered to my horror that Build 160331 of RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3/2 didn’t have support for YouTube in Kodi Media Center. Many Add-ons (extensions) in Kodi are dependent on the YouTube Add-on. I therefore (of course) had to correct this error and upload a new version (160402) of RaspEX. While I was at it I took the opportunity to install some additional popular Music, Video and Picture Add-ons.

NEWS 160331
A new version of RaspEX especially built for the new Raspberry Pi 3 is ready. I have upgraded the whole system, replaced the old kernel, added support for Bluetooth and installed Kodi (XBMC) Media Center as an alternative to the LXDE Desktop.

The Raspberry Pi 3 is the third generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B in February 2016.

Compared to the Raspberry Pi 2 it has:
A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.5!

Posted 03-17-2016 at 06:02 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.5-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20160314.

What’s new in kernel 4.5?
