NEWS 140910 about Exton|OS Light Live CD – ISO file of 692 MB
I’ve made a new extra version of Exton|OS with only a minimum of packages pre-installed.

hplip scanner: error during device i/o

Posted 09-06-2014 at 07:04 PM by vik

Squid is a Caching Proxy Server that reduces bandwidth, improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages so you have a faster Web Experience.
