Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.12.7 and kernel 4.5.3-exton :: Build 160512

Posted 05-12-2016 at 01:13 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Exton|OS Build 160512 is based on Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit and Debian Stretch/Sid (upcoming Debian 9). Exton|OSís ISO file is a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can even run Exton|OS from a USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence!

Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel Ė 4.5.3!

Posted 05-10-2016 at 02:13 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.5.3-exton, equivalent to Kernel.orgís latest stable kernel 4.5.3 released 160504.

Whatís new in Linux kernel 4.5.3?

Install kernel 4.5.3-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Linux Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.4) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9)....

RaspEX Build 160426, based on Ubuntu 16.04, with Kodi Media Center 16.0 and Fluxbox

NEWS 160426 ABOUT RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2
In RaspEX Build 160421, based on Ubuntu 16.04, I could not include Kodi (XBMC) Media Center (a free and open-source media player software application developed by the XBMC Foundation) without removing LXDE and many other programs. Now Iíve found a solution. I was able to install Kodi 16.0 alongside Fluxbox. A Desktop environment besides Kodi is needed so you can configure your wireless network and other stuff.

Study all installed packages in Build 160426...

RaspEX Build 160421: Now based on Ubuntu 16.04, released today (160421)

Posted 04-21-2016 at 04:50 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 160421 ABOUT RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2
Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus was released today. I therefore (of course) simply had to upgrade RaspEX. Unfortunately I could not get Kodi (XBMC) Media Center to work in this build. I have therefore kept the "old" version (from 160402) of RaspEX with Kodi on the servers. Study all installed packages in Build 160421.
