Yet another version of “The Ultimate Linux System”!

Posted 11-10-2013 at 04:51 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 13 is now based on Ubuntu 13.10, released 131017. I’ve replaced Unity with Gnome 3.10 (latest version, not yet in Ubuntu’s official repositories). Used kernel in version 131109 of ExTiX 13: “My” special kernel 3.12.0-2-exton (Kernel.org’s latest STABLE kernel 3.12) with support for “extra everything”.

Crunchbang Linux Install Vaio Pro 13

Posted 11-05-2013 at 01:00 AM by Rearden888

Got this laptop new to replace an older Lenovo Thinkpad X220. Mine is the Core i7 4500U with a 256 GB hard drive, but nothing here should be different in other versions besides drive partition sizes. It was kind of a bear to install, so I thought I'd post a write up here that might be useful to others.

Feel free to point out mistakes and improvements!

Lets start off with some background:

Hard drive comes partitioned a lot. It’s a GPT table, with...
