NEWS/CHANGES 150714
All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 150714. Cairo-Dock has been replaced by Docky. 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. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process. Also: Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela is based on Debian and Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr. MeX build 150714 is based on Debian 8...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.1.1!

Posted 07-03-2015 at 09:42 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.1.1!

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 and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.1.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.1.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20150629.
