DebEX Gnome with Gnome 3.38, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 5.12.8-exton – Build 210603ABOUT DebEX Gnome Build 210603I have made a new extra version of DebEX, which I call DebEX Gnome Live DVD. It’s a pure Debian system using the testing (bullseye) and unstable (sid) repositories. Gnome 3.38 is used as Desktop environment. GNOME 40 (latest) is not yet in Debian’s repositories. If you want to try out GNOME 40 you’ll have to run Fedora or Arch Linux. You can also run GNOME 40 in ArchEX (Arch Linux live) Build 210526.MORE ABOUT DebEX GnomeI have removed the Mate Desktop, since Gnome now can be used on all kind of computers. Also when running DebEX in VirtualBox and VMware. No need for Nvidia’s proprietary graphics drivers when running this new version of DebEX. You can of course install such drivers if you want to. Furthermore I have replaced Google Chrome with Firefox ESR. It is now possible to watch Netflix movies using Firefox ESR in Linux. I have also replaced Refracta Installer with Calamares Installer, which makes it possible to install DebEX Gnome in any language. You can even use Calamares in VirtualBox and VMware – i.e. non-efi computers. All installed packages have been updated to the latest version as of 210603. DebEX Gnome uses kernel 5.12.8-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s second latest kernel 5.12.8.THE REAL McCoyDebEX is a pure Debian system. I.e. no traces of Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc. New releases of Ubuntu are always based on Debian. So is DebEX.ROLLING distributionDebian/DebEX are rolling distributions, which implies that once you have installed the system on the hard drive there is no need for re-installations (which otherwise is common in the Linux world).SCREENSHOTS1.

ExTiX Deepin 21.5-2 Live based on Deepin 20.2.1 (latest) with Skype, Spotify, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 5.12.4-exton :: Build 210520NEWS 210520 ABOUT ExTiX DeepinI’ve released a new version of ExTiX Deepin today (210520). This ExTiX Build is based on Deepin 20.2.1 released by Deepin Technology 210513.NEW FUNCTIONS etc1. You can run ExTiX from RAM. Use boot alternative 2 (load to RAM) or Advanced. A wonderful way to run Linux if you have enough RAM. Everything will be super fast. When ExTiX has booted up you can remove the DVD or USB stick.2. You will have the opportunity to choose language before you enter the Deepin 20.2.1 Desktop. All main languages are supported.3. I have replaced Deepin Installer with the Reborn version of Deepin Installer. Works better in every way.4. I have replaced kernel 5.10.4-exton with kernel 5.12.4-exton. Corresponding the second latest available stable kernel 5.12.4 from Kernel.org.5. Spotify and Skype are pre-installed.6. You can watch Netflix while running Firefox.7. You can install ExTiX Deepin also in VirtualBox/VMware using Refracta Installer or Deepin Installer. (In previous versions you had to “chroot” into the install partition and install Grub).8. As an alternative to Apt you can use the Cactus Package Manager. Example commands: cpm i mousepad and cpm s gimp. (Install Mousepad and search for Gimp). CPM works very well.9. Install ExTiX to a USB stick preferably with Rufus 3.14 in Windows.10. In version 210520 I’ve also included Refracta Installer. Use it in VirtualBox if you want to have an exact copy of ExTiX Deepin installed. You don’t have to “chroot” to install Grub. Just choose to “Copy Grub files” when asked to. Watch this screenshot.11. VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed. With those installed you can run ExTiX in full screen in VirtualBox. Watch this screenshot: www.extix.se/extix-21.5-2-refracta-installer-ready-vbox.jpgUNIQUEI may add that there is no other live version of Deepin 20.2.1.SCREENSHOTS1.

    Have not been able to get an internet connection (hard wire or wireless) on this release of raspberry pi 2 os after numerous attempts and installs. Everything else appears perfect but can not get to internet. All other operating systems with same hardware operate perfectly.
    The first release was not a problem. Please advise
