I've seen somewhere that a download of 10.04 with all patches applied was going to be available , August 12th , from memory.

Does anyone know about this or is it simply that the normal download will the patched version.

Do you have a link? I'd love to read that article.

Usually when you check for updates it will download any fixes for you applications or system.

The closest you'll get is to download the MinimalCD (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD).

When you boot of the CD you'll get to a screen:


boot:

Type install and about half way through Taskel will open and ask what else you'd like to install. Arrow down to Ubuntu Desktop hit the space bar to mark it and tab to <ok>.

This will download all the newest fixes for you. As opposed to downloading a LiveCD and then having to update everything then.

No link , sorry...saw it in the forum "somewhere" but can't find it again.

I naturally figured such a download would be a much cleaner new install. Oh well.....

Yeah that minimal.iso is about as quick and clean as it gets. Are you having problems with anything particular keeping you from upgrading from 9.10?

Nothing of great import....Just thought I'd see if I could get 3g mobile broadband up on 10.04

there was a thread in the community cafe about it. it got pushed back again. i want to say the 17th. the sources in that thread, iirc, are the developer mailing lists.

it will be the 10.04.1 release. once you see that appear as the download from here (http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download), that's when you know this has been done.

the file offered will be

ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386.iso instead of ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso.

the minimal install method, described by posters above me, is also a perfectly fine way of getting the exact same thing.

Oh neat they changed the web site.

no, sorry. probably quality control issues. "we won't release until bug x and y are fixed" type thing.

Yes, there will be four bugfix releases after the present 10.04.0 initial release, like with 8.04. The first one has been postponed twice, and now the release date is 17. august.

I just hope that this will include everything to get mobile broadband up & running from scratch.

My only access at the moment is via this XP laptop ( which I have dual booted with 9.10 ) with a 3G dongle but that won't help if a new 10.04 install doesn't work straight off the bat.

Hope that makes sense.....:(

It is highly recommended to have wired internet access while installing, also if you are using 10.04.1.

Couldn't agree more but as I'm in a hospital without such luxury, I'm somewhat hamstrung.

Oh well, back home in a couple of weeks & I'll take up the challenge again then.
