A new version of Exton|Defender

I have made a new version of Exton|Defender. I call it Exton|Defender 2012 Super Rescue System (SRS) LiveDVD.

Special features in version 111115 of Exton|Defender
I have replaced Slackware´s 13.37 original kernel 2.6.37.6 with kernel 3.0.9-exton with support for “everything”.All component software is upgraded to the latest version by now (20111115). Most importantly, however, is that I have arranged for all of your changes to the system to be saved even if you run Exton|Defender from disc (DVD) or USB stick. If you run Exton|Defender from a USB stick, all your changes can be saved directly on the stick. That will make you really portable. I have also arranged so this new version of Exton|Defender (111115) can be downloaded for free.

System Tools included

NTFS-3g, GParted 0.10.0, PartImage 0.6.9, Shred 8.11, Sfdisk (util-linux-ng 2.19), Rsync 3.0.8, Ddrescue 1.14, FSArchiver 0.6.12 and Midnight Commander 4.7.5.2. Other programs (among many others): Wicd, Firefox 8.0, Gimp, Samba, Java Runtime Environment (JRE), Emacs and many compilation tools.

Note
that Exton|Defender 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, Exton|Defender 2012 can be seen as an alternative to Mandriva Flash (which costs 50 Euro).
