ExTiX 16.4, Build 160731, with KDE 4.15 together with KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 and kernel 4.6.4

extix-logo-black-white-bgI have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.4 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.2).

ABOUT
ExTiX 16.4
KDE DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.5 Jessie/Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 16.04.1. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 with KDE 4.15. KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms.

The system language is ENGLISH.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.6.0-9-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.6.4. You can download “my” kernel if you want to use it in another Ubuntu/Debian system. Extract ubuntu-kernel-64bit-4.6.0-9-exton.7z with the command 7za x ubuntu-kernel-64bit-4.6.0-9-exton.7z.

Compatibility
A general truth: If an original system can run on a particular computer an Exton “remaster” of the same original system can run on the same computer. I never change a Linux system for the worse in terms of auto configuration and hardware detection, etc. It happens that I replace the original kernel, but always to a “better” one with even more native support for various hardware etc. (Which I have done in this case).

ExTiX 15.4 – LXQt and KDE versions – Build 151017 with kernel 4.2.0-16-exton (4.2.3)

extix-15.4-extix-desktop-smallI have made two new versions of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call them ExTiX 15.4 LXQt Live DVD respectively ExTiX 15.4 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 15.3).

ABOUT
ExTiX 15.4 LXQt/KDE Live DVD 64bit is based on Debian 8.2 Jessie/Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.9.0 respectively KDE Frameworks 5.15.0 with KDE 4.15. LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects: A lightweight, modular, blazing-fast and user-friendly desktop environment.

STABLE?
Ubuntu 15.10 will be released in a stable version 151022. Regardless of this fact you can consider both my ExTiX versions of 151017 as stable. The “Final Freeze” of Ubuntu 15.10 was yesterday (151016).

The system language is ENGLISH.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.2.0-16-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.2.3.

What’s new in kernel 4.2? One million new lines of code in kernel 4.2! (The biggest kernel release ever according to Linus Torvalds).
