CruxEX 3.0 64bit 2013 Linux
CruxEX 3.0 2013 64bit Linux Live CD is based on CRUX 3.0 (latest version, released 130119), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.0 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.0 2013 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel 3.6.11 with "my" special kernel 3.8.2-x86_64-exton, with support for "extra everything".
Kernel 3.8.2 is the latest available stable kernel as of 130313. Kernel 3.7.8 is the second latest available stable kernel as of 130222. Among all installed applications are Firefox 19.0.2, Gimp 2.8.2 and Wicd. Furthermore compilation tools so that you can install programs from source.
Install my new version of CruxEX 3.0 64bit from 130313 to a USB Pen Drive and save your system changes - read this INSTRUCTION. If you later on decide you want to install CruxEX to hard drive from the USB Pen Drive all your system changes will also be installed to the hard drive.
About CruxEX 3.0 version 130313
All packages have been upgraded to the lastest available version (with prt-get sysup). This means (for example) that Firefox is in version 19.0.2. Furthermore: This version uses kernel 3.8.2-x86_64-exton!
CruxEX 3.0 2013 is - as my previous Crux-remasters EXTON-CR LXDE and EXTON-CR KDE - unique in the world. I.e. there is no other CRUX Live CD in any language (as far as I know). In any case, not for downloading.
Kernel with support for almost anything
If you have a new or/and unusual hardware you should try CruxEX. This is because the system (using kernel 3.8.2) supports "all forms of" hardware.
The default language (locale) is set to English.
The default keyboard layout is American (us). Change it by running the command setxkbmap se (for Sweden). To make it permanent change /etc/rc.conf.
Install CruxEX to hard disk
CruxEX can be installed to the hard drive in live mode, which can be expected to be perceived as positive by some. CRUX - the original system - contains neither Xfce, Fluxbox, Gnome, KDE, LXDE, or any other Desktop environment. Please read my INSTALL Instructions. While installing CruxEX 3.0 to hard disk you can also install Grub2 as startup manager.
Install CruxEX 3.0 CD to USB Pen Drive
This can be done in two different ways. Please read my INSTRUCTIONS. But, please, read also this INSTRUCTION.
Login to LXDE
When you start up your computer from the cd/usb stick you will end up in console mode. Login as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser) with password live respectively root. Then run the command startx to enjoy X and LXDE.
Install new software
Please read about CRUX Ports System. Most important commands: ports -u, prt-get sysup, prt-get depinst UsefulProgram.

NOTE about CruxEX 2.8 32bit
I have kept the old version of CruxEX (CruxEX 32bit 2.8 2012) on the Sourceforge.net server. People with older computers (32bit) may like it. CruxEX 2.8 also uses the LXDE Desktop environment.
