Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.8.1 :: build 141117

Posted 11-17-2014 at 09:44 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

A new and much better version of Exton|OS (based on Ubuntu 14.10 and Debian Jessie) is ready. I have replaced kernel 3.16.0-5-exton with kernel 3.16.0-21-exton. (Kernel.org‘s kernel 3.16.4). The Mate Desktop is upgraded to version 1.8.1. I have also replaced Ubuntu’s installation program Ubiquity with Exton|OS Installer, which is a clone of Debian Live Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process....

Updated 12-21-2014 at 07:01 AM by exton (New version of PuppEX (141124))

EDIT 141221
A new version of PuppEX Tahr is ready. Most important changes: I've changed kernel from 3.17.6 to 3.18 and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.1 in PuppEX version 141221. (Kernel 3.18.1 can't be used in Puppy/PuppEX just yet).

EDIT 141209
Today I have uploaded a new version of PuppEX Tahr. It uses kernel 3.17.6-puppex. Kernel 3.17.6...

A new (perfect) 3.17.0 kernel for Puppy Linux

Posted 11-07-2014 at 05:07 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I don't know how useful this info is for the average Puppy Linux user is, but today I have compiled a new perfect (as I think) 3.17.0 kernel for my PuppEX installed (not "frugal") system. I call it 3.17.0-puppex.

The kernel can be used in all newer 32 bit Puppy Linux "fully" installed systems. I.e. not "frugal" systems.
