ExLight Linux Live DVD - 32bit
ExLight 13.04 Linux Live DVD is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.04 (alias Raring Ringtail, released 130425). The Desktop Environment is Enlightenment 17 STABLE (Beauty at your fingertips). Kernel 3.9.0-0-exton is used. "My" kernel works better than the original Ubuntu kernel 3.8.0-19-generic. (That is; the system runs faster). Program content: AbiWord, Skype, Wicd, Thunderbird, Firefox, Gimp, Vlc and GParted. Also all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. Study the full program LIST. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as at May 9, 2013. The system language is English.
Login to Enlightenment
When you start up your computer from the dvd you will end up in X/Enlightenment as the ordinary user live. LightDM Login Manager is used. Logout and login again (if you want) as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser) with password live respectively root.
Use Wicd (Menu >> Applications >> Network) to configure your network connection. You may have to change the Network Interfaces eth0 and wlan0 to eth1 respectively wlan1 or...
Installation to hard disk
Note that you in advance (just in case) should create a partition of at least 6 GB for ExLight and a SWAP space double the size of your computer's RAM. Ie if you have RAM of 1024 MB or less. If you have RAM of 2 GB or more it's enough with a SWAP space of 2 GB. The installation program in ExTiX 13/Ubuntu is otherwise "intuitive". Choose manual partitioning and select the partition you created in advance for installation. If you receive the error message The username you entered is invalid: See this solution. SAFE INSTALLATON: Do not change language/locale from default English during installation.
You should use UNetbootin in Windows or Linux. There's other ways to do it, but using UNetbootin is the best/safest way. NOTE: You must replace syslinux.cfg in the root of the stick with this file. However, if you want to install ExLight to harddisk you will have to run the system from a dvd disc during installation. If you use Startup Disk Creator in Linux to transfer ExLight to USB it is possible to install ExLight to harddisk later on from the USB stick.
Create new users via System Settings
Go to Applications >> System Tools >> System Settings >> User Accounts. Click Unlock and give the root password. Add a new user with the plus sign.
Changing the root password
If you install ExLight to hard drive you should immediately (for security reasons) manually change root's password. This is because the installation program does not ask about a new root password. (Ubuntu original uses no root password). The root password is changed by running the command sudo passwd root. After installing ExLight to hard drive, you can alternatively remove the root password altogether. This is done with the command sudo passwd root -l.

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.
