    Re: Trusty Tahr Release Schedule, Partial Upgrades and Common Questions

    I don't have Windows installed on any of my systems, and that last time I used a Windows system I got so frustrated, that it wouldn't do anything the way I was used to.

    I use dd to create a usb thumb drive using the following command:

    Code:
    dd if=trusty-desktop-i386.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=1M
    I used the device to create a new Lubuntu installation on an old Celeron powered system, that was having a hard time running XP with all the latest service packs.

    Just tried your method on Lubuntu 14.04 and it worked! Thanks again.

    Edit: The reason why I Upgrade from 13.10 is that my Pen Drive Linux Software for Windows 8.1 has NOT yet been Updated to Support 14.04 LTS Nightly Builds by the way.

    Please read this:

    Should the initial warning be changed from:

    Warning: Unless you are willing to have a broken system, please make sure that that Pre-released updates are disabled in Software & Updates, as this repository is now used as a holding area while packages are waiting for dependencies to be built.
    To something like:

    Warning: Unless you are willing to have a broken system, please make sure that that proposed-updates are disabled in Software & Updates, as this repository is now used as a holding area while packages are waiting for dependencies to be built.
    I'm sort of clueless ATM so this is NOT a recommendation, just a question

    Of course I have, but based on recent comments maybe we need to amend that to reflect the entire message

    I was puzzled how this happened:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...9#post12859139

    Or, thinking harder, are proposed updates already applied in current testing isos????

    That's why I made sure to say, "I'm sort of clueless ATM so this is NOT a recommendation, just a question"
