I’ve made yet a new version (20140210) of exGENT 2014. This time for the 32 bit architecture. The new version (140210 of 1080 MB) uses LXDE as Desktop environment (as my previous 64 bit version from 140207). All installed packages in exGENT have been updated to the latest available version by 140210.
I’ve made yet a new version (20140207) of exGENT 2014. This time for the 64 bit architecture. The new version (release 140207 of 1090 MB) uses LXDE as Desktop environment. Used kernel: 3.13.1-gentoo-exton. Kernel 3.13.1 is the second latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. All installed packages in exGENT have been updated to the latest available version by 140207.
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 Linux can be installed to hard drive in 3 – 10 min. (Depending on computer type). 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 (Gentoo) installed on your computers very easy.
Who is exGENT/Gentoo for?
My answer: Experienced Linux users or those who really want to learn Linux. (Perhaps also for people who are bored with mainstream distributions like Ubuntu).
