View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update ubuntu CD's?
July 22nd, 2008, 05:03 PM
when ubuntu updates libraries and other stuff do they update the downloadable live cd?
because i help allot of users in my region with the installation of debian builds.
every time i install ubuntu from my installation disk it has to update 300 MB of files. i was wondering if the ubunut cd's on the main pages get updated with the latest fixes or do i need to download them?

You'll still need to download the updates.
Maybe you should look at APTonCD here: http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/
You can download the updates from the repos and burn them to cd/dvd with this so that when you set up a machine you have all the updates on hand with no individual downloading for each machine. Its in the repositories. Check it out
I hope this helps

They don't update the LiveCD every time updates are made available, but they do create a decimal release (ex: 8.04.1) which contain the updates up to the date it was created. There will be a couple of these created for Hardy since it as a LTS release.

It would be overwhelming from a logistical and tech support point of view if CDs with the same version number had different contents and different versions of things. Hence 8.04.1.
