SlackEX Build 171223 (Slackware 14.2) live dvd/usb with KDE 4.14.38, kernel 4.14.8-x86_64-efi-exton, Nvidia 384.98 and VirtualBox 5.2.4

Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. In comparison with for example Ubuntu and Linux Mint, many people believe that Slackware is “difficult”. Any novice can quickly learn to use Ubuntu they say. My remaster of Slackware Current (14.2), which I call SlackEX 14.2/Current 64 bit Linux Live DVD/USB, is however just as easy to use as Ubuntu and/or Linux Mint. Some tend to complain that the Program Management in Slackware is awkward. That was perhaps earlier the case, but not anymore. Now we have the Application Managers Slackpkg and GSlapt – a GTK version of slapt-get. They are a piece of cake to use! Users of Synaptic will feel at ease with GSlapt.

New features in version 171223 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.12.9-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.14.8-x86_64-efi-exton with support for “everything”. Kernel 4.14.8 was released 171220. KDE is upgraded to version 4.14.38 (latest KDE version). All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware Current version by now. I may also mention in particular GParted 0.29.0, VirtualBox 5.2.4 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), Google Chrome 63.0.3239.108 (not in Slackware’s repositories – you can download my build at SourceForge.net), Gimp 2.8.10 (installed from source), SMPlayer 17.11.2, GSlapt 0.5.4b, Slackpkg 2.82.1, Firefox 57.0.2, Thunderbird 52.5.0, Samba 4.7.3 and GCC 7.2.0. Furthermore I have installed Grub2, which can be used as boot loader (if you want) after a hard drive install. Study the full package LIST. Note: I have replaced Wicd with NetworkManager. It works better in SlackEX.

The end of the road…
I will end my SlackEX project now. It’s not needed anymore (if it ever was). Alienbob’s Slackware systems are built with liveslak scripts. Anyone can use the scripts. No special knowledge of Slackware (or Linux) is needed. A lot of different Slackware systems (built with liveslak) can be downloaded. They can all be installed to hard drive using a script called setup2hd. They can also be transferred to a USB stick using a script called iso2usb.sh.

Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

LINUX.EXTON.NET15.06.2014
A new version of EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS is ready. Changes: New (latest) versions of GParted, Puppy Linux, 4MLinux and SliTaz.

What’s the point of running EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS?
Anyone who is slightly interested in Linux and want to see how far the development of the most famous mini Linux systems have reached should try it. Naturally, also all who own older 32 bit computers that require a smaller system, which can run smoothly (quickly). Easy then to test the current systems on the CD (DVD) live to find out which one suits you (and your computer) best.

Three different servers
This means among other things that the above mentioned distributions now are available from three (3) different independent servers. Namely The Swedish Linux Society, Sourceforge.net and Softpedia.com. So now I am guarded for all eventualities. On the other hand, the title is a bit misleading. The correct title would read “Three different Download places” or if you include LINUX.EXTON.NETFour different Download places.” If you click on the blue Download button on Softpedias different pages you will in fact be linked to Sourceforge.net. (The aforementioned applies not only to my Linux distributions). Now there are only three exton distributions (out of sixteen), on just the one (1) server – The Swedish Linux Society. These three are: KNOPPIX-EXTON v7.0.4 32bit Linux Live DVDPCLinuxOS-EXTON 2013 32bit Linux Live DVD and EXTON-MAN 2014 (Mageia 4) 32bit LXDE Live CD. The two first mentioned have in common that the system language is Swedish.
