A new and much better version of Exton|OS is ready. I have replaced kernel 3.19.0-5-exton with kernel 3.19.0-14-exton. With kernel 3.19.0 there is no real need to use Nvidia proprietary graphic drivers since this kernel has better support for the open-source Nvidia driver Nouveau than any other older kernel.
