NEWS 20170303 about exGENT
Ive made yet a new version (20170303) of exGENT based on Gentoo Linux. Now with Xfce 4.12.1 and kernel 4.10.1. It is for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2017 Xfce4 Live DVD. It replaces version 20170209. The ISO file is of 2760 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages pre-installed.

I swap Caps_Lock and Escape for editing with vim, and although easy to do in X, I never figured out how to swap the keys in console terminals.
The above links to a nice method to reassign keymaps so that the caps and esc keys are swapped.

People want their problem solved, not another distro.

Posted 02-17-2017 at 08:57 AM by goumba

I've really been trying hard not to post this. Really, but it gets harder each day.

One trend I've noticed growing on LQ lately.

Newbie posts their problem. "I can't get X working on distro Y."

A response from certain (many senior) users, "You don't want distro Y. You want to install distro Z. It's super fantabulous, lightweight, based on distro ZZ, and oh by the way nothing I have to say here solves your problem."
