Run Slackware (Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack) from a USB stick and save all system changes

Posted 03-13-2013 at 12:56 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made new versions of Exton-Slack 14.0 version 130217 and Exton|Defender version 121120. The new versions can as before be run from a USB stick. The difference now is that any changes you make to the Systems (including upgrades and new software installations) are automatically saved on the stick. You will thus be quite portable, because the Systems on the stick (of course) can run on any “normal” computer.

I’ve kept the old file names (exton-slack-64bit-kde410-906mb-130217.iso...

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

Posted 03-13-2013 at 12:52 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 3.8.2-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.8.2 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130303.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.8 kernel

Stability and cutting edge. Mutually conflicting, but we want it!

Updated 03-13-2013 at 04:23 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

This is my first attempt to write a blog. I have never had an interest in doing such things, but the time has come to rant. For the last two years, I have seen posts on numerous fora by people looking for, or complaining because they cannot find, stability and cutting edge. There are two problems I do not understand:
1) The desire for SNS. Version 3.18 that was released three or four months ago is too old. I MUST have 3.19, and I MUST have it NOW! This growing trend of believing software is...

Windows: Will it survive, die or thrive????

Posted 03-12-2013 at 03:27 PM by Nbiser

http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/...er-windows-era

This is a very interesting article in my opinion. Windows is only hanging on because that is what people are used to, and Microsoft has, so to speak, cornered the manufacturers into pre-installing it on their computers. This article was written in the days of Vista; 7, a relatively good OS, came in-between Vista and 8, helping to stave off the death of Microsoft. Now with the advent of Windows 8, we are seeing another...
