A remix of the Debian-based MX Linux operating system that features a recent kernel and packages

What's new in MX Linux Exton Remix Build 191018:

  • All packages are upgraded from Stretch (Debian 9) to Buster (Debian 10). Study the full LIST.
  • The original kernel 4.19 is replaced by “my” kernel 5.3.6-exton. You can download my kernel if you want to use it in another MX/Debian/Ubuntu/Mint system.
  • Some cosmetic changes. I.e. new wallpapers.
Read the full changelog

MX Linux Exton Remix is an open-source and free GNU/Linux distribution forked from the MX Linux operating system, which in turn is based on the popular Debian GNU/Linux operating system. It features the lightweight Xfce desktop environment by default.

Boot options and supported architectures

The MX Linux Exton Remix ISO image is supported only on 64-bit (amd64) systems and offers standard boot options like the ability to boot the live system without installing anything on your personal computer, support for booting an already installed OS from the local disk drive, and the ability to run a memory test. The default username and password for live user and root are "live" and "root".

Newer kernel, newer base, updated artwork

The difference between MX Linux and this remix is that the latter features a more recent Linux kernel for better hardware support, and it's based on the latest Debian GNU/Linux operating system series. Additionally, MX Linux Exton Remix also features unique customizations and artwork that are not available in the original MX Linux OS.

Lightweight Xfce desktop with all the MX Linux tools

Just like MX Linux, the MX Linux Exton Remix distro uses the lightweight Xfce desktop environment by default and it features all the awesome MX Linux applications, among which we can mention MX Boot Repair, MX Cleanup, MX Snapshot, MX Codecs Installer, as well as MX Live USB Maker, which lets users create their own MX Linux live system.

Bottom line

If you want an up-to-date and customized version of MX Linux with a newer kernel that supports more hardware devices and packages from the latest and greatest Debian GNU/Linux operating system series, we recommend giving Arne Exton's MX Linux Exton Remix distro a try. Everything we tested in this unique MX Linux remix works very well.
