NEWS 140604

MeX Linux is now based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 17 – codenamed “Qiana“, released 20140531 and on Ubuntu 14.04 – codenamed “Trusty Tahr“, released 20140417). All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140604. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it.

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.14.5!

Posted 06-02-2014 at 12:22 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 3.14.5-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.14.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140531).

Exton|OS Light Live CD 64 bit with Openbox 3.5.2 :: build 140524

Posted 05-24-2014 at 03:12 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new extra version of Exton|OS with only a minimum of packages pre-installed. Among them a terminal emulator (LXTerminal), a Web Browser (Chromium), PCManFM (file manager), NetworkManager and Synaptic (Package Manager). I give you the pleasure of installing all extra packages you need after a hard disk installation of Exton|OS Light. Use Synaptic for that. You can of course also install new packages while running the system live (from CD/USB stick), but nothing will be saved after a reboot....

NEWS ABOUT ExTiX 14.1 Light build 140515

I’ve made a new lighter version of ExTiX 14.1. It uses Razor-qt as Desktop Environment, Slim as Login Manager and kernel 3.15.0-0-exton. (Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface).

LFA 14.04 (Linux For All) build 140511

Posted 05-11-2014 at 02:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 14.04 – codenamed Trusty Tahr, released April 17, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE,Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.
