    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    In order to make it more convenient to use the advanced OBI level (introduced in version 1.2), there is now version 2.2.

    A. Version 2.0: The underlying operating system is upgraded to Ubuntu version 13.10

    B. Version 2.1 release candidate: Lubuntu-desktop is installed and tweaked to create a graphical desktop environment with desktop icons for the main tasks during installation with the One Button Installer. See the attached picture file!

    0. Toggle the touchpad (to prevent accidents with laptops and notebooks because the palm is touching the touchpad and causing unwanted commands).
    1. Run Gparted to edit the partitions (preparing for the advanced OBI level).
    2. Run the OBI in a normal lxterminal window
    3. Run the OBI in a maximized xterm window with high resolution, in other words with more lines and columns

    Edit:

    USB 3 pendrives with at least 8 GB are recommended (4 GB is possible, but will soon be full). See this link Howto help USB boot drives

    C. Version 2.2 is released. It has the same features as 2.1 plus a few bug-fixes. The pdf documents of the version 1.2 are also updated for the usage of version 2.2.

    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    There is a new experimental tarball of Lubuntu 13.10 with a non-pae kernel. You are welcome to test it, but beware, it is an early version, and you can expect that there are some problems. For example, I cannot connect to wired internet (ethernet) in Toshiba laptops with Realtek ethernet chips. But many things work as they should.

    Lubuntu_13.10oem-oct28-tweaked_nonpae.tar.xz

    Use this link http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer/rc/

    Edit: The kernel was obtained and installed via hyperair's ppa into an already installed Lubuntu 13.10 system (in a USB 3 pendrive).

    Code:
     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hyperair/staging

    A USB 3 pendrive with at least 8 GB is recommended for the graphical desktop environment. But there is also a flavour of version 2.2 with a text desktop environment, which is suitable for very old computers. A 4 GB pendrive is big enough for the text version.

    You can find some USB pendrives that are good booters in this link Howto help USB boot drives

    Use this link http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer to download the One Button Installer.

    How to install and run the OBI with a current list of tarballs (January 2014)

    OBI quick start manual

    Please view or download this OBI quick start manual file with a short description how to make a boot drive with the OBI and how to use the OBI to install an Ubuntu based linux operating system.

    README

    If you want to read more, please view or download this README file, which describes with more details how to make a boot drive with the OBI and how to use the OBI to install an Ubuntu based linux operating system to your computer, to make a portable system or to make a tarball from an existing system for backup or sharing.

    Download the following files

    Select one of the compressed image files

    Code:
    dd_blank-obi_4GB_22_text.img.xz

    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    There are two experimental tarballs made from Lubuntu and Xubuntu Trusty Tahr pre-beta daily builds. You are welcome to test them, but expect that there might be problems, particularly when you try to update/upgrade.

    LubuntuTrusty-oem-feb12.tar.xz
    XubuntuTrusty-oem-feb13.tar.xz

    Use this link http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer

    Edit
    : These tarballs contain a 32-bit pae kernel and fake-pae and can be used with most Intel/AMD CPUs including Pentium M and Celeron M processors.

    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    New tarballs are created by Jack Trice from LXLE 12.04.4 with 32-bits non-pae kernel and OEM style installation.

    lxle32-12.04.4-oem0.tar.xz # in OEM mode, password: 123456
    lxle32-12.04.4-oem1.tar.xz
    # OEM: ready for the end user


    Use this link http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer

    These tarballs contain a 32-bit non-pae kernel and can be used with most Intel/AMD CPUs including Pentium M and Celeron M processors. The non-pae kernel does not manage memory above 2 GB well (but it is seldom a problem with old hardware). LXDE is specified for minimum 512 MB RAM, so these tarballs are suitable for computers with RAM size in the interval [512 MB, 2 GB] See this link

    http://wiki.lxle.net/doku.php/requirements

    -o-

    We selected this kernel to make good tarballs for old computers. The 64-bit version of LXLE is better for newer and more powerful computers, but there is no such tarball (now).

    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    Version 2.3 of the One Button Installer is released. It is mainly a bug-fix update from 2.2 including updated pdf documents. The operating system (13.10) is also updated/upgraded.

    New feature: the OBI will share an existing swap partition, when selected at the advanced OBI level.

    USB 3 pendrives with at least 8 GB are recommended for the version with Lubuntu desktop. 4 GB pendrives are still possible for the text version. See also this link Howto help USB boot drives

    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    There is an experimental version of the One Button Installer built on Trusty Tahr and Phill Whiteside's non-pae kernel

    Compressed image name: dd_blank-obi_7.8GB_23_LubuntuTrusty_non-pae.img.xz

    Kernel version: 3.13.2_3.13.2-1_i386

    Location:
    http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer
    http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer/rc/
    http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer/dd_images

    User name: myself
    Password: 123456

    I recommend mkusb to install the compressed image to a pendrive or a hard disk drive. If you have or can borrow a really old non-pae CPU,
    please try it in *text mode* to keep memory requirements low! It should be happy with 128 MB in text mode.
