Earlier today, November 25, we've been informed by Arne Exton, the developer of several GNU/Linux and Android-x86 distributions that are available for download right here on Softpedia, about the release and immediate availability for download of his CruxEX 3.2 operating system.
Arne Exton, an independent GNU/Linux developer, known for many Linux kernel-based operating systems, posted an interesting tutorial a couple of days ago about how to install the latest Linux 4.1 LTS kernel on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, or Debian distros.
Operating system: Linux Mint 17.1 “Rebecca” MATE 64-bit
File name: Linux Mint 17.1 64-bit.ova (Format: OVF 1.0)
The first release candidate for Linux Mint 14 was announced yesterday, but it seems that the distribution has a problem with 32-bit applications. The Linux Mint developers have issued a note stating that the 32-bit support is not included the Linux Mint 14 RC.
The new version sees a number of important changes affecting graphics drivers. The x32-ABI promises the advantages of x86-64-CPUs without the overhead of 64-bit code. Btrfs is reported to be quicker, and Yama prevents processes from accessing each other's allocated memory.
The x32 ABI promises to make the advantages of x86-64 CPUs accessible while avoiding the overhead that comes with 64-bit code. Version 3.4 of the kernel will improve the power-saving capabilities of Xen. The new Yama module prevents processes from examining the memory of other processes.

The x32 effort, an undertaking to provide a native 32-bit ABI for x86_64 on Linux, is finally moving closer to fruition. Peter Anvin has published the set of x32 patches for the Linux kernel that are now up for review and comments.
