NEWS 191102 about Raspberry Pi Debian 10 Pixel – 32bit – an Exton Build
My previous Debian Pixel Build from is from 190705 . Study all included packages in Build 191102- latest by 191102. I’ve added NetworkManager and also Wicd, which makes it easier to configure wireless connections. Choose the one which works for you.

Reason for a new Raspberry Pi Debian 10 Pixel build right now
Yesterday (191101) two members on this site wrote to me saying that Refracta Installer didn’t work for them. I checked it and they were right. The Refracta Installer had to be upgraded from version 9.3.3 to version 9.5.3. While I was at it I also upgraded Refracta Snapshot to the latest version – 10.2.9.

Most important changes in Build 191102
This build replaces version 161223 , 170425, 180316, 180928 and 190705 . I’ve upgraded Raspbian/Debian from Stretch to Buster – Debian 10 stable. I’ve also upgraded the kernel from 4.19.0-5-686-pae to 4.19.0-6-686-pae. I’ve also included kernel 4.19.0-6-686, which shall be used on older computers. PAE (Physical Address Extension) increases the physical memory addressable by the system from 4 GB to 64 GB. Firefox have been installed so you’ll have a browser when logged in as root. You can’t run Chromium as root. Another good thing about Firefox is that you can use it to watch Netflix movies.

    Softpedia's article 191104 about my Debian Raspberry Pi PIXEL remix 191102

    "GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton released a new version of his Raspbian PIXEL fork for PC and Mac with a whole new system base and up-to-date components.

    As you may know, Raspberry Pi Foundation forked the LXDE desktop environment to create PIXEL, an optimized desktop environment for their Debian-based Raspbian operating system for Raspberry Pi computers. A couple of years ago, Arne Exton forked PIXEL and created an installer to allow users to install it on PCs and Macs.

    The latest release of Arne Exton's Raspberry Pi PIXEL is a major version that upgrades the system base from Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" to the latest Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" operating system series. It also ships with two Linux 4.19 kernels for PAE and non-PAE systems, Linux kernel 4.19.0-6-686-pae and Linux kernel 4.19.0-6-686."
