About Exton|Defender SRS (in two versions)

 

 

Description

Exton|Defender SRS is a Linux system available as a Live DVD (based on Mageia 4, 32bit - version 140403 and on Fedora 22, 64bit - version 150531) for administrating or repairing your system and data after a crash. Exton|Defender aims to provide an easy way to carry out admin tasks on your computer, such as creating and editing the hard disk partitions. It comes with a lot of Linux software such as system tools and basic tools (editors, Midnight Commander, network tools). Exton|Defender can, however, also be used as a normal Linux Desktop System. It requires no hard drive installation, but can easily be installed to hard drive if you want. Desktop environments: LXDE in version 140403 (Mageia 4) and Cinnamon 2.4.8 in version 150531 (Fedora 22).

 

System Tools included

NTFS-3g, GParted, PartImage, Shred, Sfdisk (util-linux-ng), Rsync, Ddrescue, FSArchiver, TestDisk and Midnight Commander. Other programs (among many others): Google Chrome (in both versions) for watching Netflix movies, LibreOffice (in fc22), NetworkManager, Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp, Samba, Java (JDK 7u9) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE), Emacs, Safecopy, kernel headers (Mageia 5 and Fedora 22) and many compilation tools. See a complete LIST of all installed packages 150701 (Mageia version) and 150531 (Fedora version).

About Exton|Defender - Mageia 5 version

Read my special page.

 

About Fedora
Please read this overview.

Passwords
The password for root (superuser) and live (normal user) is: root/live in the Mageia 5 version of 150701.
In version 150531 (Fedora 22) there is no password for liveuser and root. Just login to Cinnamon as liveuser and/or root without any password.

Configuring X
X is auto-configured during the boot from the USB stick/DVD.

Default language
The default language (locale) is set to English.

Sudo
Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Mint and many other so-called beginner distributions (and other Linux systems) use Sudo to do something that requires root (superuser) privileges. There really is no need for a root password. "Examples of Command": sudo mkdir /usr/MyFiles. Read HERE about how Sudo works. When logged in as liveuser in the Fedora version from 150531 just run the command su to become root. (You can also run sudo su).

The ISO-files are of 834 MB - the Mageia 5 version and 1720 MB - the Fedora 22 version.

Installation to hard disk - Mageia 5 version
Exton|Defender mga/Mageia can easily be installed to hard disk. Start up a terminal as root and run this command: draklive-install. Then just follow the instructions. NOTE: If you want your own user/users you'll have to add him/them when you have started up Exton|Defender mga from hard disk. Do it as root with the commands useradd MyUser and passwd MyUser or go to Mageia Control Center >> System >> Manage users on system. It will look like this.

INSTALL Exton|Defender - FC22 (version 150531) on a USB stick of at least 2 GB
Use Fedora LiveUSB-Creator in Windows. Works very good. All system changes are PERSISTENT.

INSTALL Exton|Defender - FC22 (version 150531) to hard drive
Just use Anaconda (Fedora's installer). Please read this INSTRUCTION. You can (if you want) use Grub2 as boot loader.

Feedback
Mageia 5 and Fedora 22 is at least as "good" as Ubuntu 15.04/Linux Mint 17.1 and/or OpenSUSE 13.2. I think. Tell me what you think of Exton|Defender SRS in combination with the Cinnamon Desktop. Did you find the included Rescue System Tools useful?

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.
