DebEX KDE Plasma (Debian “Buster”) Build 190407 releases: Linux kernel 5.0.6-exton

DebEX Linux

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton today released the latest release of Debian-based DebEX Linux, with several components including the Linux Kernel updated. The latest DebEX Build 190407 is now open for download, enabling the Budgie 10.4 desktop environment and the first GNU/Linux distribution with the upcoming Linux Kernel 5.0.6-Exton.

This release is based on the forthcoming Debian GNU / Linux 10 “Buster” operating system branch, which is still in the Debian Testing phase. The improvement in the new version of DebEX is that the ISO image capacity has dropped from 1.3GB to 925MB so that the system can be run directly from memory without installing anything on the computer.

In addition, DebEX Budgie is equipped with the latest Calamares 3.2.3 graphical installer and the Refracta Snapshot tool, which allows users to create their own Debian-based Live distribution, which takes only 50 minutes. Arne Exton added in the announcement: “You don’t even have to install DebEX to hard drive before you can use the Refracta tools.”
DebEX KDE Plasma uses the KDE Plasma Desktop 5:14 as Desktop environment. Kernel 5.0.6-exton (5.0.6) is used.
