ExTiX 17.0, Build 161221, with KDE 4.16 together with KDE Frameworks 5.26.0, Refracta Tools and kernel 4.9 (latest)

Posted 12-21-2016 at 04:47 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 17.0 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.4 from 160731). The best thing with ExTiX 17.0 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Tools (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.9.0-11-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.9 – latest as of 161221. You can download “my” kernel if...

Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel - 4.9!

Posted 12-17-2016 at 08:42 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.9.0-11-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 4.9 released 161211.

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.9?

Install kernel 4.9.0-11-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.6) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9)....

Bad documentation?

Posted 12-15-2016 at 12:55 PM by peonuser

Sometimes you just want to tear your hair out when the documentation of a product is WRONG. Something I ran into recently when trying to attach an enc28j60 from Hanrun to my genuine Arduino. I have used the ethernet shield on the Arduino without a hitch. So I supposed there would be no problem again... So I thought. Followed the map for hooking the two devices together as follows:

VCC - 3.3V
GND - GND
SCK - Pin 13
SO - Pin 12
SI - Pin 11

One from the light-side:

The Shell is what gives a grey-beard his power.
It's an interface to all installed tools.
It surrounds them, and penetrates them.
It binds the UNIXverse together.

You too must come to Slackware if you are to learn the ways
of the Shell and become a grey-beard like your father.
And one from the dark-side:

Command-line control of network activation and deactivation

Posted 12-12-2016 at 12:33 PM by flshope

It took me a while to find this, so I thought I would post it. After searching through various sources, I finally took the time to read all of the hundred or so lines you get from 'apropos network'.

A terminal command to activate or deactive networking is

Code:
nmcli networking on
nmcli networking off
Under Ubuntu I usually depend on a networking control icon that appears on the tool bar of the indicator applet, but sometimes the icon is missing. I...
