This thread has nothing to do with this one. The other thread for suggestions and idea. This one is for sharing Testing Results with everyone over here. Please don't get confused.
One day or less to go for the first Alpha Release of Lubuntu 12.04.
From Julien Lavergne (Lubuntu Developer)
I asked him some Qs and here is the answers:Hi,
The 1st Alpha of Lubuntu 12.04 is planned for Thurday. We started the
ISO testing for Alpha 1, so if you want to help, you can join the
If you know how to use a virtual machine (Virtualbox) and how to install
Lubuntu, you can help ! You can follow the steps on this wiki page :
We uses a new ISO tracker to collect the results : http://18.104.22.168 .
There are 4 ISOs that you can test : Live CD (Desktop) and Alternate
ISO, both on i386 and amd64. All need to be tested, to be able to
publish an Alpha 1.
To be short, just download the ISO, run it into VirtualBox, check the
testcase on the page of the ISO, and report the result.
You don't need any technical knowledge, and if you have questions, you
can ask on #lubuntu or #ubuntu-testing.
Thanks in advance !
What do I have to do?Ah but it's temporaly, the site should be available on a real DNS adress for Alpha 2 ( http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/). Still, the ISOs are available in http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/daily-live/current/ is people just want to have a look.I was unable to open this: http://22.214.171.124
Site is blocked by my ISP and anyway it doesn't seem a valid IP address anyway.
Not exactly, because the hardware on the virtual machine is generic. You can test many things on a vm, but it's nice to test it also on a real hardware.Another thing: I understand testing in Virtual Machines (VirtualBox) is SAFE but will that be the same as testing on real installation?
However, for Alpha 1, it's not important to test it on real hardware. It's still very early in the cycle. It's more critical for Beta ISO for example.
ALL what you need to do is follow the instructions on the above Email from Julien and share your feedback and/or your test results with everyone here. This thread will be active from 1st of Dec, 2011 until the final release day (26th of April, 2012).
