MeX 64 bit Linux with Cinnamon 2.2 and kernel 3.16.2 :: build 140917

Posted 09-17-2014 at 02:32 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 09-17-2014 at 02:33 PM by exton

All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140917. 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. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process.

Exton|OS Light Live CD 64 bit with Openbox 3.5.2 :: build 140910

Posted 09-10-2014 at 03:39 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 140910 about Exton|OS Light Live CD – ISO file of 692 MB
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, GParted (Partition Editor) 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...

Build 140831 of SlackEX 14.1 live USB with kernel 3.16.1

Posted 08-31-2014 at 12:05 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

New features in version 140831 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 140831 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to an USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. KDE is downgraded to version 4.10.5 from version 4.11.1. All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware version by now. I may mention in particular GParted 0.17.0 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), VirtualBox 4.3.14 (latest, not in Slackware’s...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.16.1!

Posted 08-23-2014 at 01:57 AM 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 3.16.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.16.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140814).

I have made a new version of the extra version of DebEX, wich I call DebEX KDE Live DVD. (The first version is from 140626). It’s a pure Debian system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.13.3 as Desktop environment. (The latest stable version of KDE). Study the full package list.
