(Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface).  All packages in ExTiX Light 14.2 have been updated to the latest available stable versions as of October 19, 2014.

CruxEX (CRUX 3.1) live USB, build 141017, with kernel 3.17.1

CruxEX 3.1 2014 64 bit Linux Live USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86_64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2014 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel 3.12.24 with “my” special kernel 3.17.1-x86_64-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

NOTE 141017
Today (141017) I have compiled a new special kernel for CRUX 3.1. I call it 3.17.1-x86_64-cruxex. The CruxEX system now boot up faster than ever before. I’ve added more support for different network cards and sound cards (in the kernel).

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.17.1!

SlackwareI 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.

Exton|OS Light build 141007 :: Based on Ubuntu 14.10 with kernel 3.16.0-21-exton (3.16.4)

NEWS 141007 about Exton|OS Light Live CD – ISO file of 703 MB
I’ve made a new extra version of Exton|OS based on upcoming Ubuntu 14.10 (alias Utopic Unicorn) 64 bit with only a minimum of packages pre-installed. Among them a terminal emulator (LXTerminal), a Web Browser (Chromium), PCManFM (file manager), NetworkManager, GParted (Partition Editor) and Synaptic (Package Manager). I give you the pleasure of installing all extra packages you need after a hard disk installation of Exton|OS Light. Use Synaptic for that. You can of course also install new packages while running the system live (from CD/USB stick), but nothing will be saved after a reboot. Unless you have followed my USB Install Instruction and used Boot alternative 2 – Persistent. If you have plenty of RAM you can even install big programs (such as LibreOffice) while running the system live even from CD. Exton|OS Light’s Window manager Openbox guarantees lightness and elegance.
