EXTON OpSuS KDE/Cinnamon 64bit Linux Live USB - two different versions
EXTON OpSuS 12.3 KDE/Cinnamon is based on openSUSE 12.3. EXTON OpSuS KDE uses kernel 3.7.10-9.1 and KDE 4.10.1. An alternative Desktop environment is Razor-qt 0.5.2. EXTON OpSuS 12.3 Cinnamon uses kernel 3.7.10-1.1 and Cinnamon 1.6.7 as Desktop environment. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, Thunderbird, FileZilla, Gimp, Vlc, NetworkManager, GParted and LibreOffice. Study the full list of PACKAGES for the KDE version and for the Cinnamon version. You'll run the systems as root or as the ordinary user live. Root's and live's password is root/live. EXTON OpSuS (both versions) 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 Mars 22, 2013 (KDE version) and Mars 28 (Cinnamon version). The system language is English.
Installing to a USB stick and/or to hard drive
After installing EXTON OpSuS 12.3 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 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 Mate or Xfce4. All your system changes are automatically saved to the USB stick.
Install EXTON OpSuS 12.3 on a USB stick
1. You shall/must install EXTON OpSuS 12.3 on a USB stick.
When downloading EXTON OpSuS KDE4, it comes in the form of a zip file (EXTON_OpSuS_KDE4-x86_64-130322.zip) of 1140 MB. After unpacking with (for example) 7-Zip, you will have a file named EXTON_OpSuS_KDE4-x86_64-130322.img. It is of 3290 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. Ie 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. Use the same method to install the Cinnamon version (EXTON_OpSuS_Cinnamon-x86_64-130328.zip) to a USB stick.
Alternative USB installation in Linux
You can (of course) install EXTON OpSuS 12.03 to USB stick also in Linux. For example in OpenSUSE 12.3. 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.
Login to KDE, Razor-qt or Cinnamon
Login to the Desktop as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser). Passwords: live/root. When logged in as live you can run Dolphin and Filer as root using the command sudo dolphin or sudo filer. (That can be useful sometimes).
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.

EXTON distributions: The number of Exton distributions has decreased from 66 (all time high in June 2011) to 16. See a complete LIST. It was a bit too much for me to keep 66 distributions up to date. All Exton distributions on the Swedish Linux Society's FTP Server can be reached HERE. Thirteen (13) Exton distributions in English (English locale) can also be dowloaded from SourceForge.net.
