Description

exGENT version 141227 and 141205 Linux Live DVD are - as the name suggests - based on Gentoo Linux. The best thing with exGENT is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to relatively easily install the systems to hard drive during a live session. You can choose between running Xfce4 or LXDE. In version 141227 you can also try other Desktop Environments. Used kernels: 3.18.1-gentoo-exton and 3.16.5-gentoo-exton.

64 bit (Xfce4 version) or 32 bit (LXDE version).

ROLLING DISTRIBUTION
Gentoo/exGENT is a "rolling" distribution, which means that you can always get the latest software without reinstalling.

GO FOR IT!
You'll run exGENT (LXDE/32bit version) super fast in RAM. The launch from the cd becomes a little slow, but then... A wonderful way to run Linux if you have enough RAM. You'll need at least 2 GB.

WHO IS exGENT/Gentoo FOR?
My answer: Experienced Linux users or those who really want to learn Linux.

Both versions can easily be installed to USB.

    super job, over the years, I can do installation very quickly even from the original gentoo live, but I remember my first installation, it was really few days to get the desktop fully working and ages to rebuild when tuning USE variables :D haha ... using distcc already on 64core machine :D thanks

    I want to use this, but don't have 2 GB RAM. I have only 256 Ram. How do I prevent ExGent booting to Ram?
