Corsair Hackers Reboot:: The Birth

Posted 03-16-2014 at 02:57 PM by jheengut

The LinuxFest 2013
was well covered by great topics on Linux and BSD and we have had a good and interactive audience.

I felt that there was not enough awareness of
FOSS, UNIX, OpenHardware here in Mauritius and the impact they have on our everyday life.
Secondly when I was reading

DebEX Barebone 64 bit Live DVD with LXDE and kernel 13.3.1-amd64

NEWS 140227
The DebEX Barebone ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred to a USB pen drive. You can then even run DebEX Barebone from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Read this INSTRUCTION. NetworkManager has been removed. It doesn’t go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. I’ve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer....

Why use Linux?

Posted 02-15-2014 at 03:33 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I found something memorable about Linux on the Internet. I reproduce it here. The author is unknown to me.

: () { : | : & } ; :

We tell people we use Linux because it's secure. Or because it's free, because it's customizable, because it's free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support...

But all that is just marketing bullshit. We tell that to non-Linuxers because the wouldn't understand the real reason. And when we say those...

EXTON-MAN 2014 (Mageia 4) 32 bit Linux live cd with LXDE

Posted 02-03-2014 at 10:09 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 02-05-2014 at 10:34 AM by exton

I’ve made a quick and simple remaster of Mageia 4, released 140201. Mageia has been the third most popular Linux system in the world for some time now (according to Distrowatch.com).

Who is EXTON-MAN 2014 32 bit LXDE for?
There is no official live Mageia 4 ISO with LXDE for downloading. (Only with KDE and Gnome). EXTON-MAN 2014 can be useful for people with older 32 bit computers who like to run an eminent Linux system (Mageia) live with some speed. Also of course for all people...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.13.1!

Posted 01-30-2014 at 10:36 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 01-30-2014 at 10:37 AM by exton

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.13.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).
