ExTiX LXQt Mini with LXQt 0.14.1, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 5.6.2-exton :: Build 200402

Filed under
GNU
Linux

I‘ve made a new “mini” version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. It is based on (upcoming) Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa. The ISO file is now of 1050 MB, which is good if you want to run the system super fast from RAM. When the boot process is ready you can eject the DVD or USB stick. Use Boot alternative 2 or Advanced options… >> load to RAM. The best thing with ExTiX 20.4 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu 20.04 system. So easy that a ten year child can do it! ExTiX 20.4 uses the latest kernel – 5.6.2. Released by Kernel.org today.

Study all pre-installed packages in ExTiX 20.4.

ExTiX “The Ultimate Linux System” Gets a Mini Version

  • ExTiX “The Ultimate Linux System” Gets a Mini Version Based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Linux 5.6

    Arne Exton released today a new version of his ExTiX “The Ultimate Linux System” distribution with a “Mini” flavor featuring the lightweight LXQt desktop environment.

    ExTiX 20.4 is now available for download, and it’s the first release of the so-called “The Ultimate Linux System” distribution that’s based on the upcoming Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) operating system.

    This is also the first release of this Ubuntu-based distribution to ship with the recently released Linux 5.6 kernel series (Linux kernel 5.6.2 is included by default) and a “Mini” version, which features the lightweight and modern LXQt desktop environment.

ExTix 20.4 ‘Mini’ Linux Distro Released: Based On Ubuntu 20.04

  • ExTix 20.4 ‘Mini’ Linux Distro Released: Based On Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    The Ultimate Linux system ExtiX 20.2 was the first Linux distro based on the upcoming Ubuntu 20.04 LTS “Focal Fossa.” Though v20.2 was an unstable version, Arne Exton, the ExTiX developer, has released a new mini version ExTiX 20.4.

    ExTiX LXQT 20.4 is tagged as ‘Mini’ release because it ships with the lightweight and user-friendly LXQT desktop environment. The v20.04 is also based on the next long term Ubuntu 20.04 and includes the latest Linux Kernel 5.6.2.

    [...]

    The installation process involves only three steps. First, download the ISO by clicking the button given below. Next, create a bootable USB using downloaded ExTiX ISO file. Then, plug in a USB stick into the system and finally reboot to either run in live mode or install ExTiX.

  • ExTiX LXQt ‘Mini’, featuring Linux 5.6.2 released

    With ExTiX 20.4 running live, users can take a snapshot using the pre-installed Refracta tool to create their own installable Ubuntu 20.04. While I can’t verify that doing so is ‘so easy that a ten-year-old child can do it’ as developer Exton claims, it is quite easy and intuitive.

    Another keen feature of ExTiX 20.4 is that the distro utilizes the latest Linux kernel, version 5.6.2-exton, surprisingly released on the same day as ExTiX 20.4, itself.

    ExTiX 20.4 also uses LXQt as its desktop environment.

Happy birthday Audacity: 20 years

Here is a next update for my ‘Digital Audio Workstation’ (DAW) software collection. Today, 28th of May 2020, the Audacity multi-track audio recorder turns 20 years old! This is a nice moment to also release the Slackware packages (only targeting -current, sorry) for their latest and greatest, Audacity 2.4.1 which was released a week ago as a quick bug-fix to the long-awaited 2.4.0. Along with this new Audacity release, I also have new packages for wxGTK3 (3.0.5.1) which you’ll need for Audacity to show its graphical user interface... Read more

What Makes a System76 Computer?

In homage to the revolutionary age of 1776, System76 revolutionizes open source technology and declares independence from our proprietary rulers. But what are the key ingredients that go into making a computer so revolutionary? The following delicious details outline the qualities we value in all of our computers. Note: Licking your screen is not an effective way to taste the deliciousness of this blog post. System76 users depend on heavy computational power to get their work done, and in some cases require a literal heavy computer. Our hardware is designed to support top-line processors and graphics cards, allowing you to consistently plow through your workload. We’re not going to call on a sedan to do a bulldozer’s job.

ZFS focus on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: ZSys general principle on state management

After our previous general presentation of ZSys, it’s “”“time”“” to deep dive to one of its main predominant feature: state management! A little technical detour first. as this question will necessarily arise, especially from those familiar with ZFS concepts. We have purposively chosen the “state” terminology to prevent system administrators and in general, all those familiar with ZFS to confuse if with snapshot datasets. Basically a state is a set of datasets, all frozen in time (apart from the current state), which regrouped together forms a system “state” that you can chose to reboot on. Those group of datasets can be either made of snapshot datasets (read only) (which is what most of advanced ZFS users will expect), but it can also be filesystem datasets (read write), made of filesystem datasets clone of the current state datasets. You can boot to any of those. Read more
