New in version 130318 (March 19th, 2013)

  • I've made a new version (20130318) of exGENT 32bit (Gentoo) Live CD. The old version of exGENT is from 20130215. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and "my special" Gentoo genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. Kernel 3.7.10 is the latest Gentoo kernel. LXDE is used because of its speed. The system language is English. Quite new is that I've found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I've also added more support for Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards.
