I’ve made a third version of exGENT 2013. Now with Gnome 3.8.4 and kernel 3.11.5-gentoo-exton. (Kernel.org’s latest!). Version 131017 is for the 32 bit architecture. It replaces version 20130423 of exGENT, which had Cinnamon as Desktop environment. Cinnamon is no longer “needed” since Gnome version 3.8.4 has everything that Cinnamon has (and more).
I’ve kept my two previous versions 20130926 and 20130415 of exGENT on Sourceforge.net. Version 20130926 is for the 64 bit architecture and version
20130415 (32 bit) of exGENT is good for older computers since the system is quite small (631 MB). That can be necessary if your computer has RAM memory of less than 2048 MB.
GO FOR IT!
You’ll run exGENT super fast in RAM. The launch from the dvd becomes a little slow, but then… A wonderful way to run Linux if you have enough RAM. You’ll need at least 2 GB.
exGENT 32 bit version 131017 is in very good shape. Yesterday I could run the following commands without problems:
# emerge –ask –update –newuse –deep –with-bdeps=y @world
# emerge –depclean
The best thing with exGENT 32bit/64bit (Gentoo) Linux Live DVD/CD is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to easily install the systems to hard drive and/or usb pen drive. Installed programs: Gnome 3.8.4, LXDE and Fluxbox 1.3.5. Other programs: Abiword, SMPlayer, GParted, Firefox, Thunderbird and NetworkManager. Furthermore compilation tools so that you can install programs from source the Gentoo way. See a complete program LIST (version 131017 ). Three versions of exGENT is available. One for the 64 bit architecture (version 130926) and two for the 32 bit architecture. The system language is English.
The exGENT systems can easily (in about 5 min) be installed to hard drive or/and to a usb pen drive.
Who is exGENT/Gentoo for?
Experienced Linux users or those who really want to learn Linux. (Perhaps also people who are bored with mainstream distributions like Ubuntu).
