A new version (130721) of Exton|Defender Super Rescue System (SRS)

Posted 07-21-2013 at 05:15 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130721) of Exton|Defender based on Fedora 19 64 bit with Mate 1.6.1 as Desktop environment.

Exton|Defender SRS is a Linux system available as a bootable USB stick (Slackware 14.0, 32 bit – version 121120) and Live DVD (Fedora 19, 64 bit – version 130721) for administrating or repairing your system and data after a crash.

Changed the root password on the Beagleboard.

Already had motion working on the RPi. The RPI basically only uses digital. Might experiment with r2r before getting some adc and dac chips.
