CruxEX 3.1 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB with kernel 3.18.3-x86_64-cruxex

Posted 01-19-2015 at 12:11 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

CruxEX 3.1 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2015 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with “my” special kernel 3.18.3-x86_64-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

Kernel etc
Kernel 3.18.3 is the latest available...

EDIT 141221
A new version of PuppEX Tahr is ready. Most important changes: I've changed kernel from 3.17.6 to 3.18 and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65.
