    Ubuntu Gnome daily images now available.

    I test several types of Ubuntu's. They seem to all call themselves "raring-desktop-i386.iso" (or amd64).

    Why can't they call themselves kubuntu-raring... or gnome-raring or unity-raring or ....

    Anyway I rename them to reduce confusion.

    zsync gets pretty confused, I can point zsync to a different URL but it is still looking for different versions of ubuntu with the same file name.

    I keep them all in an archive directory and boot whichever with a /etc/grub.d/40_custom entry. Let me try different directories. Install gets horribly confused if there are two (or more) "ubuntu-desktop-i386.iso" anywhere on any of the hard drives on any directory.

    I use the following script run from cron to keep all of my daily images up to date (I've just updated it to include Ubuntu Gnome as well).
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    # Script to update Ubuntu daily iso builds.

    Would you be interested in filing a bug on that? I'm not sure the right place, but you could try filing against livecd-rootfs.

    I'm not sure they would call that a bug since the greeter/login give you a choice of which de to start .

    edit: I often have several de's all in one install .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    I tried to install ubuntu-gnome amd64 both the original and a zsync'd one . The installer hangs on both . I tried both direct install without going to the live session and also from the live session .

    Re: Ubuntu Gnome daily images now available.

    I successfully installed the daily live image (amd64) from the live-session, have to wiggle the mouse or hit the keyboard during install though to prevent idle which will freeze the screen.
    So If you stay with Gnome 3.6 every thing seems to work.
    I tried to upgrade to pre Gnome 3.8 by using the Gnome3 ppa, the update itself went well but when i restarted the only thing I got was the blue blinds background with a mouse courser.

    I tried hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del which brought up the log out dialog box and asked if I wanted to log out from GDM-session ? Strange...

    I tried pushing the power button once instead which brought up the shutdown dialog box telling me again I was logged in as GDM ?

    Anyone else having this issue with pre Gnome 3.8 ?

    @ sgage
    And you are having an installation with Ubuntu GNOME only and using GDM as login manager like I am ?
