Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

Posted 11-21-2013 at 09:07 AM 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 3.12.1-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.12.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Released yesterday (20131120).

MeX Linux 13.10 64 bit with four Desktop environments – stable version

Posted 10-19-2013 at 07:16 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.10 – codenamed Saucy Salamander, released 20131017. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.1 (Ubuntu). I have replaced Unity with KDE 4.11.2, Gnome 3.8.4, Gnome Fallback (Classic) 3.8.4 (which makes Cinnamon expendable) and Razor-qt 0.5.2.
