MX Linux Exton Remix 64bit with LXQt 1.1.0 (latest) and kernel 5.10 replaced by kernel 5.17.7-amd64-exton :: Build 220524

ABOUT my MX Linux Remix 220524
MX Linux (based on Debian) is by far the most popular Linux system in the world according to DistroWatch.com. I tested MX Linux a few months ago and noticed immediately that one can change the MX system and create a new ISO with MX Snapshot. My first MX Linux Remix is from 191018.

MX Linux 21
My first remix was based on MX Linux 18.3 (released in May 2019). MX Linux 21 Wildflower was released on October 21, 2021. It is based on Debian 11.3 (Stable/Bullseye).

My changes of the original MX Linux 21 system
1. All packages have been upgraded to the latest version as of 220524. Study the full package LIST.
2. The original kernel 5.10 is replaced by “my” kernel 5.17.7-amd64-exton.
3. I’ve added the LXQt Desktop. It’s in version 1.1.0 released on November 6, 2021. Version 1.1.0 is still not included in Debian’s repositories so I had to install LXQt 1.1.0 from source. (Took me a few hours). NOTE: I have (of course) also kept the original Xfce 4.16 Desktop.
4. You can run my MX Linux remix in full screen in VirtualBox, since VirtualBox Guest Additions are installed. Watch this screenshot.

5. Some cosmetic changes. I.e. new nice wallpapers.

Installation to a USB stick
Please note that you can only use Rufus 3.18 in Windows for USB installations. If you use other software the stick won’t be made bootable. Note also that you must write in DD image mode. One exception: You can without problems use Ventoy (instead of Rufus).

Performance
Everything in my remix works very well. MX Linux works on new and old computers. I can mention that I could run (and install) my MX remix without problems on my 17 year old laptop Acer Aspire 5102WLMi. You can of course make your own MX Linux Remix with my remix as “groundwork”. The whole process will only take about 5 minutes! Also in VirtualBox.

Login
Login to the Xfce4 or the LXQt Desktop as live with password live or as root with password rootscreenshot.

Hard drive installations
Use MX Installer. It works very well.

SCREENSHOTS
1. root’s Desktop in LXQt 1.1.0
2. live’s Desktop in LXQt
3. live’s Desktop in Xfce4
4. Connection to a Windows computer with Samba

DOWNLOAD
The ISO can be downloaded from the Swedish Linux Society.

MX Linux Exton Remix 64bit with all Debian packages upgraded to “Buster” (Debian 10) and kernel 4.19 replaced by 5.3.6-exton – Build 191018

ABOUT my MX Linux Remix 191018
MX Linux (based on Debian) is by far the most popular Linux system in the world according to DistroWatch.com. I tested MX Linux two days ago and noticed immediately that one can change the MX system and create a new ISO with MX Snapshot.

So today I quickly made a remix of MX Linux 18.3 (released in May 2019) using MX Snapshot.

My changes of the original MX system
1. All packages are upgraded from Stretch (Debian 9) to Buster (Debian 10). Study the full LIST.
2. The original kernel 4.19 is replaced by “my” kernel 5.3.6-exton.  You can download my kernel if you want to use it in another MX/Debian/Ubuntu/Mint system.
3. Some cosmetic changes. I.e. new wallpapers.

Everything in my remix works very well. You can of course make your own MX remix with my remix as “groundwork”.

Login
Login to the Xfce4 Desktop as live with password live or as root with password rootscreenshot.

SCREENSHOTS
1. root’s Desktop
2. live’s Desktop
3. Connection to a Windows computer with Samba
4. MX Snapshot running
5. MX USB Creator running
6. MX Exton Remix booting up live
7. MX Exton Remix booting up from hard drive
