Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.13.1!

Posted 01-30-2014 at 11:36 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 01-30-2014 at 11:37 AM by exton

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 3.13.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).

ExTiX 14, MeX Linux, LFA (Linux for ALL) and ExLight (among other “exton distributions”) can be installed to a USB stick with UNetbootin.

NEWS 140123

1. MeX Linux is once again based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 16 - codenamed "Petra", released 20131130 and on Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed "Saucy Salamander", released 20131017).
2. The MeX ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run MeX from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I've found two scripts which...
