DebEX KDE live with KDE 4.14.2 and kernel 3.18.0-7-exton (3.18)

DebianNEWS 141216
I have made a new version of DebEX KDE Live DVD. It replaces version 140821. It’s a pure Debian 8 system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.14.2 as Desktop environment. (The second latest stable version of KDE) and kernel 3.18.0-7-exton. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65. All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version of 141216. Study the full package list.

About Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65 in DebEX KDE version 141216
If you can and want to use said driver you’ll have to leave X/KDE by pressing Ctrl Alt F1. Log in as root with password root. Then run the command nvidia-xconfig (to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf). Then run startx to enter X/KDE again. You will notice a big difference if you have the right (modern/new) Nvidia card.
