    Softpedia 170429: "After announcing the availability of new builds of his AndEX Nougat 7.1.1 Android-x86 fork that lets users run Android 7.1.1 on their PCs, now Arne Exton released a custom build of Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian PIXEL image.

    Arne Exton's custom Debian Raspberry Pi PIXEL Build 170425 is here to replace version 161223, which was the project's first ever release. The new build ships with NetworkManager for easy configuration of wired and wireless connections, as well as Refracta tools, which lets users install the operating system on their PCs or Macs.

    Refracta tools makes the installation of this custom Raspbian PIXEL image easier for all users, which will be able to not only install the OS on the disk drive of their PCs but also to create their own remix of Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian PIXEL image."

    Yet another version of exGENT Live (Gentoo Linux) – now with Xfce4 and LXQt – Build 170407

    Softpedia about exGENT Build 170407:

    GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced the release of yet another build of his Gentoo-based exGENT Live Linux distribution, using the lightweight Xfce and LXQt desktop environments.

    exGENT Build 170407 is dubbed exGENT 2017 Xfce4/LXQt Live DVD by Arne Exton, as it uses both Xfce 4.12.1 and LXQt 0.11.0 desktop environments on the same image. Users can choose between Xfce and LXQt from the login screen before using the distribution, which is powered by the Linux 4.10.4 kernel.

    "I call it exGENT 2017 Xfce4/LXQt Live DVD. It replaces version 20170331. The ISO file is of 2620 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages pre-installed. Despite this, exGENT version 170407 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Even in VirtualBox and VMware. Faster than most other Linux live systems," says the dev.

    Android-x86_64 Nougat 7.1.1 – Build 170201 – with GAPPS and kernel 4.4.40-exton-android-x86_64

    Running AndEX Nougat in VirtualBox and/or VMware

    You can run AndEX Nougat Build 170201 very well live in VirtualBox. You can even install new apps. You can of course also install the system. Unfortunately the sound is distorted. I have therefore kept my previous Build AndEX Nougat 7.0 161107, since you can run Build 161107 in VirtualBox and VMware with sound working. AndEX 7.1.1 Build 170201 can’t be installed in VMware. AndEX 7.0 Build 161107 works very well in VMware (and VirtualBox) though. Watch a slideshow, which shows all installation steps in VMware: http://andex.exton.net/andex-nougat-...-slideshow.gif
