Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.8.1 :: build 141117

Posted 11-17-2014 at 09:44 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

A new and much better version of Exton|OS (based on Ubuntu 14.10 and Debian Jessie) is ready. I have replaced kernel 3.16.0-5-exton with kernel 3.16.0-21-exton. (‘s kernel 3.16.4). The Mate Desktop is upgraded to version 1.8.1. I have also replaced Ubuntu’s installation program Ubiquity with Exton|OS Installer, which is a clone of Debian Live 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....

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.17.1!

Posted 10-15-2014 at 05:13 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 3.17.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.17.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Released today (141015).
