exGENT (Gentoo) 64 bit Linux Live DVD with Xfce4, Grub2 and kernel 4.10.1-gentoo-exton Build 170303

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. Despite this exGENT version 170303 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Even in VirtualBox and VMware. Faster than most other Linux live systems. All...

Dual-boot Windows & Linux?

Posted 05-01-2015 at 10:53 AM by beachboy2

**Warning

Before attempting to dual-boot Linux on an existing Windows computer it is essential to backup all personal data to an external drive.

There are two main reasons why people may wish to dual-boot Windows and Linux:

1.) They are familiar with Windows and are perhaps interested in replacing it with Linux. They may be reluctant to ditch Windows completely, in case they do not get along with Linux 100% and so decide to keep a foot in both camps....

Grub2

  1. Make your changes in /etc/default/grub:
    • Add kernel options to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. In my current case:
      Code:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet video.use_native_backlight=0"
    • Always boot the last selected kernel (instead of the first one):
      Code:
      GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
      GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
    • Disable grub showing up at all per default (hold "shift" to show it anyway):
      Code:
      GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
  2. Apply your changes
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

Fedora 17 and the nvidia geforce display driver

Posted 07-13-2012 at 05:27 PM by subvertigo

This is how I installed the nvidia driver in Fedora 17 for 64 bit x86 without using a 3rd party repository. My experience will not work with all configurations.

1. Download a compatible 64 bit x86 display driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_a...y_archive.html (32 bit x86 display drivers are at http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html)

2. Install the kernel-devel and gcc packages.

3. Create the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf...
