Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.17.1!

Posted 10-15-2014 at 05:13 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.17.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.17.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released today (141015).

DebEX Barebone/KDE - Install Gnome 3.14 or/and KDE 4.14.1

Posted 10-12-2014 at 01:43 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Rolling distributions
Please note that Debian Jessie/DebEX Barebone and DebEX KDE are rolling distributions, which implies that once you have installed the systems on the hard drive there is no need for re-installations (which otherwise is common in the Linux world). This means, for example, that you can go on and install Gnome 3.14 or/and KDE 4.14.1 in DebEX Barebone/KDE. I.e. the latest versions (as of 141012) of Gnome and KDE.
