Ethernet disconnects on battery power/ac power is unplugged.

Posted 01-22-2015 at 01:18 PM by s.verma

This problem may be due to the fact that laptop-mode tools is running and it's configuration has entry

in file /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/ethernet.conf

or may be in /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf file.

So change it to
and now restart the laptop-mode service.

(If you do not know how to (re)start a service, then search on google for how to start/restart a service...

Posted 01-22-2015 at 09:59 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 150122
I have made a new version of DebEX 64 bit Gnome Live DVD. It replaces version 141014. It’s a pure Debian system. It uses Gnome 3.14 and Mate 1.8.2 as Desktop environments. Gnome 3.14 is winning back disillusioned Linux users. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65 in this new version of DebEX. Furthermore Google Chrome to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version as of 150122.

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
