EXTON OpSuS KDE 64 bit Linux Live USB - build 151112


EXTON OpSuS 42.1 KDE is based on openSUSE Leap 42.1, released 20151104.

EXTON OpSuS KDE uses kernel 4.1.12-1 and KDE 4.14.10. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp, SMPlayer, NetworkManager, GParted and LibreOffice. You'll run the system as root or as the ordinary user live. Root's and live's password is root/live. EXTON OpSuS can easily be installed to hard drive (of those who so desire). That is directly while running the system from a USB stick. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of November 12, 2015. The system language is English.

Installing to a USB stick with persistence and then to hard drive
After installing EXTON OpSuS 42.1 to a USB stick, you can change the system completely and then install the system to a hard drive. You can also continue to have it only on the USB stick and run EXTON OpSuS (all three versions) on any computer you want. If you install EXTON OpSuS on a large enough (and fast) USB stick, you can go ahead and install for example LXDE, Mate or Xfce4. All your system changes are automatically saved to the USB stick.

Install EXTON OpSuS 42.1 on a USB stick with persistence
1. You shall/must install EXTON OpSuS 42.1 on a USB stick.
When downloading EXTON OpSuS KDE, it comes in the form of a zip file (EXTON-OpSuS-64bit-42.1-KDE4-1040mb-151112.zip) of 1040 MB. After unpacking with (for example) 7-Zip, you will have a file named EXTON-OpSuS-64bit-42.1-KDE4-3380mb-151112.img. It is of 3380 MB. This is the file you want to install to a USB stick of at least 4 GB.
2. Format a USB stick with FAT32 file system in Windows. (Right click and select format).
3. Download the program Win32 Disk Imager in your Windows system and start it. It will then look like this.

4. Find your img file and make sure that you select the correct "Device" to install to.
5. Then just restart the computer with the USB stick in place and have fun!
If you follow the above five points all your changes to the system are automatically saved on the stick. I.e. your changes to the system are retained even after reboot. It's also pretty good if you then decide to install the system to hard drive. One reason for such an installation may be that you want to run the system faster. NOTE: You must use the latest version of Win32 Disk Imager. NOTE ALSO: Your first upstart/boot from the USB stick is rather slow. That's because your hardware has to be configured during the first boot. The second upstart/boot will be faster.

Alternative USB installation in Linux

You can (of course) install EXTON OpSuS 42.1 to a USB stick also in Linux. For example in OpenSUSE 13.2. In openSUSE, you shall use the program Suse Studio Imagewriter. In openSUSE, you must change the file extension .img (of the IMAGE file) to .raw.

Log in to KDE
Log in to the Desktop as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser). Passwords: live/root. When logged in as live you can use Sudo to become root. (Command sudo su). That can be useful sometimes.

Configure X
On certain computers your graphic card may not be detected/configured properly. You will then end up in console mode. Do this:
1. Log in as root with password root
2. Run the command: X -configure
3. Run the command: mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
4. Enter X/KDE with the command: startx

Samba in EXTON OpSuS KDE
You can use Samba to connect to your Windows computers in your Network. Just open up Konqueror Web Browser and go to (for example) smb:// It can look like this.

Network connections in EXTON OpSuS
Use Yast2. To find out the names of your network interfaces run the command iwconfig. It can look like this - Terminal screenshot.

Wireless connections
Use YaST Control Center. It can look like this. You must tell Yast to use NetworkManager Service instead of Wicked Network Configuration - see this screenshot.

Install EXTON OpSuS to hard drive
You'll find the install program (Live-Installer) under Menu >> Administration >> YAST Control Center. Just install EXTON OpSuS as any other Linux distribution. I.e.: Follow Live-Installer's instructions. The program is in Swedish (for example) if you choose so.

Google Chrome and Netflix
To be able to watch Netflix movies in Linux you'll need the Google Chrome Browser. It can be installed in EXTON OpSuS. Just follow this instruction.
