A new 64 bit version of exGENT (gentoo) live is ready!

I’ve made a third version of exGENT 2013. Now with LXDE and kernel 3.9.2-gentoo-exton. Version 130521 is for the 64 bit architecture. I’ve kept my two previous versions 20130423 and 20130415 on Sourceforge.net. The old versions are for the 32 bit architecture.

exGENT 64 bit version 130521 is in very good shape. Yesterday I could run the following commands without problems:

# emerge –ask –update –newuse –deep –with-bdeps=y @world
# emerge –depclean
# revdep-rebuild...

A new version of exGENT live with Cinnamon 1.6.7 and kernel 3.8.8

Posted 04-30-2013 at 09:40 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The best thing with exGENT (Gentoo) Linux Live DVD is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to easily install the system to hard drive and/or a USB stick.

Quick install to Hard Drive and/or USB stick
exGENT Linux can be installed to hard drive and/or a usb pen drive in 1 – 5 min. (Depending on computer type). This means that all of you who might hesitate to perform a normal Gentoo installation – which can take up to a couple of days – now have the chance to...

Yet another new version of exGENT (Gentoo) with LXDE

Posted 04-15-2013 at 02:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.

Running a free Gentoo

Posted 10-29-2012 at 05:52 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Gentoo is overall a great distribution, but unfortunately it is not dedicated to free software with the same determination as distributions like Trisquel and gNewSense. If you have been running Gentoo for a while, but are not familiar with this issue, you may be surprise to learn how much non-free software is in your system, from application software to the kernel.

The offset to this, however, is that built-in Gentoo mechanisms make it very easy to change this configuration, so as...
