    Re: HOWTO Ubuntu Lite

    Forgive the suggestion, but for us poor slobs that do NOT understand Linux and do NOT program, and still would like to run Ubuntu LITE - is there a version (or can someone make one) that will just install automatically? Like the Ubuntu distributions? Can someone make one single file that can be downloaded, burned to a CD and then booted from?

    Re: HOWTO Ubuntu Lite

    Here's a (somewhat) simplified guide:

    1) Put the Ubuntu install CD in the drive and (re)boot your computer.
    2) You'll encounter a screen with the Ubuntu logo that asks about the type of installation; type "server" and press ENTER.
    3) There will be some screens asking questions; simply follow the directions (or, when in doubt, choose the default option).
    4) Ubuntu will install. After it finishes and the computer reboots, login at the prompt with the name and password you provided during installation.
    5) The trickiest part: You need to edit a text file, sources.list, in order to install ubuntu-lite-desktop.

    After you log in, type the following:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    You'll see some text. What you want to do is go down the list, and if you see a line that starts with a # symbol and has the word "deb" immediately after, remove the #. This will allow your computer to access the package servers (known as "repositories") and download/install the files from there.

    You'll also want to add another line to the end of the file:

    Code:
    deb http://blueeyedcreature.net/ubuntu ./
    This will allow for your computer to download and install the ubuntu-lite-desktop package, which is the point of this exercise.

    After you add that line, press CTRL-O to save the changes.

    6) Only two more commands, and you're ready to go! Type at the prompt:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    which will let APT (the utility that communicates with the repositories and handles package downloads/installations) know that you changed sources.list. After that finishes, type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-lite-desktop
    This downloads and installs the ubuntu-lite-desktop package.

    After that finishes, type

    Code:
    sudo reboot
    to restart your computer. After the reboot, you should be at a new login screen; if you are, then Ubuntu Lite will have properly installed!

    As previously stated, if you have any questions, please ask; we're more than happy to help!

    Re: HOWTO Ubuntu Lite

    after
    sudo apt-get update
    i would also include
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    to upgrade the packages already installed with the server install...
    just to make sure everything is up-to-date

    Re: HOWTO Ubuntu Lite

    Yay! It works!

    I've got it running on a CTX EzBook 700E with 128MB and a AMD K6-2 475Mhz in it (originally it was only 64MB and 233Mhz).

    Now I just gotta figure out how to get my PCMCIA wireless going, and it will be GOLDEN.

    Thanks, gang!
