New version of SlackEX – 111023

I have made a new version of SlackEX 13.37 Gnome 3 LiveDVD.

New features in version 111023 of SlackEX (compared with the previous version from 110518)
I have replaced kernel 2.6.38.2-exton with kernel 3.0.4-exton with support for “everything”. Kernel 3.0.4 is the latest available kernel on kernel.org. Moreover, I have installed Nvidia’s own graphics driver 285.05.09 and upgraded VirtualBox to version 4.1.4. Almost all other component software is also upgraded to the latest version by now (2011-10-23 – LIST).

Note that SlackEX advantageously shall be installed on a USB stick of at least 2 GB. The system is running really fast then and you won’t hear the sound from CD/CD-ROM drive. Note also that, among other things, SlackEX 13.37 Gnome3 can be seen as an alternative to Mandriva Flash (which costs 50 Euro).

exGENT (Gentoo) LiveCD with kernel 3.0.4

I’ve made a new version of exGENT (Gentoo) LiveCD. The old version of exGENT is from 2009. My new exGENT Linux system use Fluxbox as Desktop Environment and kernel 3.0.4-exton. Fluxbox is used because of its speed. The system language is English because I want to spread exGENT across the world. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. Even old exGENT could be installed to hard disk, but only “manually”. I have replaced the Gentoo kernel with “my” special kernel 3.0.4-exton, with support for “extra everything”.

About
The best thing with exGENT is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to easily install the system to hard drive and/or USB stick. Installed programs: Among many others Firefox 7.0.1 (latest version), AbiWord, Audacious, Wicd, GParted, gFTP, Pidgin, Apache (Web server), and Cups. Furthermore compilation tools so that you can install programs from source the Gentoo way.

History
The predecessor to exGENT, Exton-Gentoo, was built completely from scratch. I.e. all its programs were compiled from source. As for exGENT I have “cheated” a bit. I.e. exGENT is based on another Gentoo-based distribution, but I have changed (almost) everything. The changes are so great that virtually nothing remains of the originally distribution.

exGENT Linux can in 5 – 10 min be installed to hard drive. This means that all of you who might hesitate to perform a normal Gentoo installation – which can take up to a couple of days – now have the chance to get this great Linux system on your computers very easy. Read below on how the installation works.

Kernel with support for almost anything
If you have a new or/and unusual hardware you should try exGENT. This is because the system (using kernel 3.0.4) supports “all forms of” hardware.

Default language
The default language (locale) is set to English.

Keyboard
The default keyboard layout is American (us). Change it by running the command setxkbmap se (for Sweden) or click on the Swedish flag in the menu under System.

Install exGENT to hard disk
Please read this INSTRUCTION.

Install exGENT to USB stick

Use the program exGENT2usb or this method, which is the best one. To start exGENT2USB instead: Open up a terminal and run the command exgent2usb (as root). Follow the instructions on the screen.

Login to Fluxbox
When you start up your computer from the disc you will end up in in X/Slim Login Manager. Login as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser) with password live respectively root.
