exGENT (Gentoo) live 64 bit with Xfce4 and kernel 3.18.1-gentoo-exton

exGENTNEWS 20141227
I’ve made yet a new version (20141227) of exGENT. Now with Xfce4 and Lxqt. It is for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2015 Xfce4 Live DVD. It replaces version 20141130. Version 141227 of exGENT uses kernel 3.18.1. (The latest stable kernel). The ISO file is of 1690 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages preinstalled. Among them four different Web Browsers: Firefox, Opera, Chromium and Seamonkey. Despite this exGENT version 141227 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Faster than most other Linux live systems. All installed packages in exGENT have been updated to the latest available version by 141227.

Quick install to Hard Drive
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.

UPGRADE the System
The exGENT Systems (version 141227 and 141205) are in very good shape, since I, without problems, have been able to update the whole systems with the following commands:
# emerge –ask –update –newuse –deep –with-bdeps=y @world
# emerge –depclean
# revdep-rebuild
