    Re: One Button Installer, 'OBI'

    There is a new and special version of the 9w installer, the OBI-9w installer

    This version is made for very old computers without PAE capability. The One Button Installer in run from the 9w installer's debian system. Now there is a super light-weight installer, that can

    - install from CD, DVD and USB
    - create not only single boot but also dual boot systems.

    Prepare partitions with Gparted and run the One Button Installer at the advanced level to create dual boot or multi boot system.

    There are special tarballs for the 9w installer, and these tarballs come with the iso file.

    Tarballs for old computers

    Two new tarballs are created for the One Button Installer. They are up to date with a new version of phillw's non-pae kernel and updated/dist-upgraded packages:

    Lubuntu_14.04oem-npae5.tar.xz # in OEM mode, password: 123456, contains several tweaks

    Trusty-nonpae-txt5.tar.xz # user: guru, password: changeme

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

    These tarballs contains PhillW's 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). The generic (pae) kernel is better when there is more than 2 GB RAM. See these links

    More details about the OEM tarball

    Please help us test Lubuntu with Phill's non-pae kernel

    Version 2.5 of the One Button Installer

    Version 2.5 is released. It is mainly a bug-fix update from 2.3 (and 2.4 OBI-9w) including updated pdf documents. The operating system (14.04 LTS) is also updated/upgraded.

    New feature: the starter menu will set the default item (command line) in a logical way prompting to download and select tarball, select OBI level and then install a system. Two-digit partition numbers (/dev/sda10 ...) are recognized at the advanced OBI level.

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

    Edit: In addition to the compressed dd image file and tarball of the OBI version 2.5 with 32-bit generic PAE kernels, there is now also a compressed dd image file with a non-pae kernel by phillw
