NEWS 20160123 ABOUT exGENT
I've made yet a new version (20160123) of exGENT based on Gentoo Linux. Now with Xfce 4.12.1 and kernel 4.4. It's for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2016 Xfce4 Live DVD. It replaces version 20141227. The ISO file is of 2280 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages pre-installed. Among them two different Web Browsers: Firefox and Opera. Despite this exGENT version 160123 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Even in VirtualBox. Faster...

RIP x86

I've had a goofy x86 pizza box for over a decade, some early PIII with 256 MB RAM. It has a couple of odd features, namely it boots off of CF and has dual on-board NICs, that made it a nice firewall machine. I got it when the ISP next door to the company I was working at went out of business, and the network guys didn't feel like hauling all the gear off.

Only problem is, it is the only 32 bit machine in my inventory, and I've been putting off upgrading it. Luck has it, fate chose...

I have made a new version of ExTiX The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.1 LXQt Live DVD. (The previous version was 15.4).

After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.10.0. LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the...

On Ubuntu

Posted 01-18-2016 at 11:23 PM by wagscat123

I started using Ubuntu when it gained popularity before Unity, MIR, and even the Ubuntu Software Center. There was just Synaptic and the apt stuff, and GNOME 2.
It was an updated version of Debian with Wubi, Ubiquity, and polish that made things "just work". This made it catch on fire, and become a good place for newbs and casual users. And from Debian it inherited a huge amount of compatibility, stability, and familiarity with experienced users.
Ubuntu has had to figure...

How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.10

Posted 01-18-2016 at 10:50 AM by sridhar11

NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today -- in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again,this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this.

In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk....
