ExTiX 10 with kernel 3.5.0-2-exton

ExTiX A new version of ExTiX 10 64bit Live DVD – based on Ubuntu 12.04 – is complete. I have changed (improved?) the system in various ways. Among others, compiled and installed a new Ubuntu kernel. The latest that you can possibly get. This kernel can also be installed in all other Ubuntu-64bit-systems, for example in MeX Linux, Linux for All (LFA), Linux Mint 10, 11, 12 and 13. The full name of the new kernel is 3.5.0-2-exton_amd64. Ubuntu has its own numbering. Kernel version 3.5.0-2 is corresponding to kernel 3.5-rc4 (latest) with Kernel.org’s naming.

Program content etc
Among many others Libre Office, AbiWord, Thunderbird 13.0.1, Firefox 13.0.1, Opera, Brasero, VLC 2.0.1, Gimp, Flash and win32-codecs. In addition, Java and all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of 1 July 2012. See a list of all installed applications.

A (big) change
In version 20120701 of ExTiX 10 you can – like in most exton distros – login to the Desktop as root. (For those who wish to do so).
