Update Raspberry Pi Install Guide

Hey everyone

Recently installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Bullseye. Last time I used the software, I was using 3.3 with Mono. Installing the required .NET 7 for a Raspberry Pi is not a straightforward or easy to access information on the internet to search for. I was able to find a script on github that handles .NET 7 automatically, works well. I recommend adding some sort of instruction/warning about installing .NET on a Pi.

Link to guide for strugglers like me: https://github.com/pjgpetecodes/dotnet7pi

dotnet installation doesnt vary with device but its OS based installation.
i had a look at the link you provided and your installing alot of stuff you dont need.

it installs..
dotnet sdk
asp.net core runtime

all thats needed to run webgrab is the .net runtime

if you look here..
https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet/7.0

its the last one on the right side(scroll down)
it says its for console apps which webgrab is.

if you read the provided links for installation its explains package manager,manual,scripted installation.
and yes the installation page should be updated,its been mentioned many times before but never seems to get done.

Package manager shows no installation candidate for ARM and Bullseye. The script only installs .NET 6.0. That page is where I started, is broken for Raspbian and ARM installs
