Lubuntu Natty alpha 2

You already know, just for testing. A few changes within:

  • new kernel (2.6.38 rc)
  • audacious replaces aqualung
  • file-roller replaces xarchiver
  • removed cheese

Go to downloads and grab it while it's hot!


  1. Lubuntu LiveCD starts to boot -> Check disc for defects -> Check finished: errors found in 1 files!
    (ISO MD5 checksum is correct, VirtualBox 3.2.12)

  2. Testd and working. There's no defect disc. Maybe a download issue. If it persists let me know and we'll refresh the server.

  4. Ok, Lubuntu crew has been informed of that. Anyway, as a "tester" (you're installing an alpha), would you like to join the mailing lists?

  5. Ox, missed this from "our boss":

    I saw a report on the list that the checksum didn't match in the Alpha2
    ISO, so I will try to find a fix for that. To do so, I need to know how the details of these ISOs are being built, so I can create one with a fixed checksum, and also so I can then fix the build tools or build documenattion, so we always create ISOs with valid checksums in future, automatically :)

    As you can see, there's a fix coming. Thank you very much for your advice.

  6. I can't understand why distrowatch didn't put lubuntu natty alpha 2 in the latest distributions...mmhh...very strange.

  7. The "Boss" is the one who can upload to DistroWatch. Sure he'll upload soon. But you can always download from here.
