ExTiX Linux Live DVD 64 bit is based on Debian Jessie/Ubuntu 14.10. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed Gnome 3.14 (in ExTiX 15.1, build 150104) respectively Razor-qt 0.5.2 (in ExTiX Light, build 141019). The system language is English in both versions of ExTiX.

NEWS 141229
All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 141229. 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.

New features in version 141220 of SlackEX

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.18.1!

Posted 12-18-2014 at 03:18 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 3.18.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.18.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20141216.
