slackware 14.1/ xorg-server rendering issues

ExTiX 14 on DistroWatch.com

Posted 12-25-2013 at 09:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 14 has been on DistroWatch.com since yesterday. It helps. I mean, over 2100 downloads in one day! Only from Sourceforge.net. How many people have downloaded the ISO file from the Swedish Linux Society server I do not know.
