ExLight 64bit UEFI, Build 221130, based on Debian “Sid” (unstable/development) with Enlightenment 0.25.4 (latest) as DE, Refracta Snapshot and Calamares InstallerNEWS 221130 ABOUT ExLightI’ve made a new version of ExLight with the Enlightenment 0.25.4 Desktop environment, Refracta Snapshot (create your own Debian Sid System) and Calamares 3.2.61-1 Installer Framework. The very nice Enlightenment theme e25 Neonz is used.NEW SOURCES 221130This new version of ExLight is based on Debian Sid (unstable/development). Build 221130 is a total rebuild of ExLight. The ISO file size is of only 1850 MB, which means that you’ll need about 3GB RAM to run ExLight even faster from RAM. I.e. load to RAM. You can remove the DVD or USB stick when ExLight has booted.KERNELExLight Build 221130 uses kernel 6.0.10-amd64-exton-rt14 built from Debian kernel sources with Debian patches.THE REAL McCoyExLight is a pure Debian system. I.e. no traces of Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc. New releases of Ubuntu are always based on Debian Sid. So is ExLight.KNOWN ISSUEYou can’t login to the Enlightenment 0.25.4 Desktop unless you use a “fairly new” computer. Not older that about eight years according to my experience.

DebEX KDE Plasma, Build 221115, based on Debian Sid/Bookworm with kernel 6.0.6-amd64-exton and Refracta SnapshotNEWS 221115 ABOUT DebEX KDE Plasma - a Refracta BuildI have made a new extra version of DebEX KDE Plasma Live DVD - uefi. It's a pure Debian 12 (Sid/upcoming Bookworm) system. (unstable). I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE Plasma Sid uses the KDE Plasma Desktop 5.26.3 - latest version, released 221108 - as Desktop environment. Kernel 6.0.6-amd64-exton-rt14 is used. All included packages have been updated to the latest version as of 221115. DebEX KDE Build 221115 works in the same way as DebEX KDE Build 220926 - see debex.exton.net. I have kept Build 220926 since it is based on Debian 11 (stable). In Build 221115 I have added LURE (Linux User REpository). "LURE is intended to bring the AUR to all distros. It is currently in an alpha state and may not be stable. It can download a repository, build packages in it using a bash script similar to PKGBUILD, and then install them using your system package manager". Read about how to use LURE: github.com/Arsen6331/lure/blob/master/docs/usage.mdVirtualBox Guest Additions and VMware Tools are pre-installed, which mean that you can run DebEX KDE in full screen – see the screenshots below.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
