ExLight 64bit UEFI, Build 210125, based on Debian “Bullseye” (upcoming Debian 11) with Enlightenment 0.24.2, Refracta Snapshot, Calamares, Nvidia Graphics Driver and kernel 5.10.10-exton

NEWS 210125 ABOUT ExLight
I’ve made a new version of ExLight with the Enlightenment 0.24.2 Desktop environment, Refracta Snapshot (create your own Debian Bullseye System), Nvidia Graphics Driver 455.45.01 and Calamares 3.2.35-1 Installer Framework. The very nice Enlightenment theme NightBlue is used. It will be used also after a hard drive installation.

New sources 210125
This new version of ExLight is based on Debian testing 11 Bullseye. Build 210125 is a total rebuild of ExLight. The ISO file size is of only 1440 MB, which means that ExLight now can run even faster from RAM. I.e. load to RAM – screenshot. You can remove the DVD or USB stick when ExLight has booted – watch this screenshot.

ExLight Build 210125 uses kernel 5.10.10-exton, corresponding‘s latest stable kernel 5.10.10.

What’s new in kernel 5.10 LTS? – The most exciting kernel in years!

ExLight is a pure Debian system. I.e. no traces of Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc. New releases of Ubuntu are always based on Debian. So is ExLight.

1. The Enlightenment 0.24.2 Desktop for user user
2. The Enlightenment 0.24.2 Desktop for the ordinary root running Calamares
3. Connection from ExLight to a Windows computer using Samba
4. Using ConnMan for WiFi connections
5. Running ExLight from RAM

    Article 210201 about ExLight Build 210125 at by Marius Nestor (previously at

    "ExLight Linux distribution sees the light of day again after a long time sleeping with a new major release that promises a pure Debian experience with the latest kernel series and Enlightenment desktop environment.
    It’s been more than a year since ExLight Linux received an update, the last release being published on November 2019 and based on the Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” operating system series, and I realized that I never wrote about ExLight on 9to5Linux since the website was launched in January 2020.

    As its name suggests, ExLight Linux aims to be a lightweight GNU/Linux distribution for not so powerful computers. To achieve that, it uses the beautiful and unique Enlightenment desktop environment/window manager by default."
