CruxEX 3.1 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB with kernel 3.18.3-x86_64-cruxex

Posted 01-19-2015 at 01:11 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

CruxEX 3.1 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2015 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with “my” special kernel 3.18.3-x86_64-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

Kernel etc
Kernel 3.18.3 is the latest available...

I used a ASR33 for programming I/O but that got old fast so I built a paper tape reader for the board. I created my programs using the paper tape punch

for those Web servers that do not offer it natively. Pound is distributed under the GPL -- no warranty, it's free to use, copy and give away.

The all-powerful moderators/heroes of some internet discussion boards...

Posted 01-15-2015 at 12:32 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just a rant/laugh... I just stumbled on a thread on a non-anglophone Ubuntu forum... the translated thread subjetc was "WHAT'S THE BEST NOTEBOOK BRAND FOR LINUX", in all-caps, and without a question mark.

A moderator warned about the all-caps title, asking the OP to fix it... he didn't... the thread continued for a while... until after 14 messages the thread was locked, because the thread subject wasn't fixed.

So, now it's solved, right? The internet population...
