Description

exGENT version 160123 Linux Live DVD is - as the name suggests - based on Gentoo Linux. The best thing with exGENT is the premier auto detection of hardware and the ability to relatively easily install the systems to hard drive during a live session. Xfce 4.12.1 is used as Desktop environment. Used kernel: 4.4.0-gentoo-exton.

INSTALLATION
The system can easily be installed to hard drive and/or a USB flash drive. The installation takes 3 - 10 min. (Depending on computer type).

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 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.

SPOTIFY
Just emerge it!

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

    ##UPDATE: Thanks, Arne for pointing me at a mirror that still has the old ISO. I can't post a URL here, but the mirror was: mirror.onet.pl /pub /mirrors /sourceforge /e /ex /exgent/ Great work, Arne! I know you no longer support the 32-bit image, but if any one else has it saved somewhere, I’d really like to give it a go on a 32-bit laptop that I have spare. Be good to compare it to Calculate Linux. I'll follow this good work, by subscribing. Cheers, Chris.

    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?
