MX Linux Exton Remix 64bit - Build 191018

Posted 10-18-2019 at 12:38 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

MX Linux Exton Remix 64bit with all Debian packages upgraded to “Buster” (Debian 10) and kernel 4.19 replaced by 5.3.6-exton – Build 191018

ABOUT my MX Linux Remix 191018
MX Linux (based on Debian) is by far the most popular Linux system in the world according to DistroWatch.com. I tested MX Linux two days ago and noticed immediately that one can change the MX system and create a new ISO with MX Snapshot.

So today I quickly made a remix of MX Linux 18.3 (released...

Slackware, Unix, PLASMA and Nethack: A discussion-based retrospective of the 1980s to the 2010s - Pt II

Earlier this month I conducted a discussion with a close companion and programmer who I will call M. M has been programming since the 1980s and has been using a host of different languages and operating systems since. Going from CP/M and Unix-based systems at work and home in the 1980s to Slackware in the 1990s and the 2000s, this discussion maps out his experiences and opinions on the world of free and proprietary software, parts of which will hopefully be of some interest. He is not, as far as...

Create a bootable USB drive with persistence using Mkusb – only for Ubuntu

Posted 10-12-2019 at 11:55 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Tags exton, mkusb

OSTechNix has written an excellent article about How to create persistent live USB on Ubuntu.

I’ve tried Mkusb today and it works perfectly well. Unfortunately not on my derivatives of Ubuntu. I.e. all ExTiX versions. That’s because they are made with Refracta Snapshot. You’ll have to use an Ubuntu original ISO image. I myself used eoan-desktop-amd64.iso (Ubuntu 19.10). As promised I could save all system changes directly on the stick. Persistence!

After a lot of trial and error and reading of wikis and forum posts, I've got three screens running out of two GPUs with full acceleration throughout.

I'm running Arch Linux on a Gigabyte H81M-DS2V motherboard with an Intel Core i7-4790 featuring Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics.

Plugged in to the PCIe slot is an AMD/ATI RV710 [Radeon HD 4350/4550] graphics card.

I have xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-intel installed....
