Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.16.1!

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.

DebEX KDE, build 140821, with KDE 4.13.3 and kernel 3.16

DebianI have made a new version of the extra version of DebEX, wich I call DebEX KDE Live DVD. (The first version is from 140626). It’s a pure Debian system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.13.3 as Desktop environment. (The latest stable version of KDE). Study the full package list.

DebEX Barebone build 140819

DebianThe 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. Study the full PACKAGE LIST of 140819. DebEX Barebone can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 3 (Copy to RAM). When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You’ll need at least 2 GB RAM to run DebEX from RAM. Furthermore I have installed Pacapt.

LFA build 140817, 14.04.1, 64 bit, with Unity (Ubuntu) and three other Desktop Environments

LFALFA (Linux for All) is a remaster of Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, codenamed Trusty Tahr, released July 25, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.

A new version of ExTiX Light 14.1.2 64 bit is ready!

ExTiXNews about ExTiX Light 14.1.2 64 bit build 140815
I’ve made a new version of the lighter version of ExTiX. It uses Razor-qt as Desktop Environment, Slim as Login Manager and kernel 3.16.0-7-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s stable kernel 3.16, released 140803. (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). My info/instructions also apply to ExTiX Light. I.e. just log in as root (with password root) or extix (with no password) from Slim’s login screen to Razor-qt.
