Run Raspberry Pis PIXEL Desktop on a PC or Mac an Exton modified Build 220505 with Refracta Snapshot

Run Raspberry Pis PIXEL Desktop on a PC or Mac an Exton modified Build 220505 with Refracta Snapshot (so you can create your own Raspberrypi Debian 11 Pixel system)

NEWS 220505 about Raspberry Pi Debian 11 Pixel 32bit an Exton Build
My previous Debian Pixel Build from is from 201108. Study all included packages in Build 220505 latest by 220505. Ive added NetworkManager and also Wicd, which makes it easier to configure wireless connections. Choose the one which works for you.

Most important changes in Build 220505
This build replaces version 161223 , 170425, 180316, 180928, 190705, 191102 and 201108 . Ive upgraded Raspbian/Debian from Buster to Bullseye Debian 11. Ive also upgraded the kernel from 4.19.0-12-686-pae to 5.10.0-13-686-pae. Ive also included kernel 5.10.0-13-686, 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 youll have a browser when logged in as root. You cant run Chromium as root. Another good thing about Firefox is that you can use it to watch Netflix movies. In Build 220505 I have removed Chromium. I saw no advantage in keeping it. You can run the system in full screen in VirtualBox. Thats because VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed. Watch this screenshot.

This Debian PIXEL 32bit build is for non-efi computers.

As far as I know there is no official Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) image with Debian 11.
