Updated 12-22-2015 at 01:13 PM by exton

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.3.0-4-exton, equivalent to Kernel.orgs latest stable kernel 4.3.2 released 151210.

Whats new in kernel 4.3?

Install kernel 4.3.0-4-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.2).

SlackEX (Slackware 14.1) Live DVD Build 151211 with KDE and kernel 4.3.1-x86_64-exton

SlackEX is based on Slackware 14.1. Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993.

New features in version 151211 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.1.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.3.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. KDE is downgraded to version 4.10.5 from version 4.11.1. All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware version by now. I may mention in particular GParted 0.24.0...

Using an HP-2133 with an external display under Ubuntu 14.04

Posted 12-11-2015 at 09:23 AM by flshope
Updated 12-12-2015 at 07:49 PM by flshope (Fix typo)

This little note will be of interest to anyone (1) running an HP-2133 Mini-note PC (a little laptop), (2) with Ubuntu 14.04 and (3) Gnome Flashback, and (4) who wants to use it with an external Dell UltraSharp display. There must be maybe three such individuals (counting me) between earth and the Andromeda galaxy -- I include the end-points of the interval.

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.3.1!

Posted 12-10-2015 at 02:54 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.3.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.3.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20151209).

What’s new in kernel 4.3.1?
