Exton|Defender SRS Changelog

New in version 140607 (Slackware)

June 10th, 2014
  • I’ve made a new version of Exton|Defender 64 bit based on Slackware 14.1. It uses Mate 1.8.1 and kernel 3.14.5-x86_64-exton. The Mate Desktop environment is not included in Slackware’s official repositories. To be able to install Mate in Exton|Defender I had to add Salix‘s repositories. The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. Note: I’ve also arranged it so that version 140607 can run from RAM. I wonderful way to run a Linux system. I.e. super fast! When Exton|Defender has booted up from the USB stick you can eject the stick. I’ve also changed kernel from kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton to kernel 3.14.5-x86_64-exton.

New in version 140403 (April 5th, 2014)
