Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] PPC

2011-11-04 Thread Julien Lavergne
Hi,

Sorry for the delay.
I didn't understand if you tested the last PPC ISO from daily build or not ? If 
it's working, it can be considered as an unofficial ISO.
Also, it's possible to make it official for 12.04, but we need people available 
to test Alpha and Beta ISO, during ISO testing process.

Julien Lavergne

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] PPC

2011-11-04 Thread
At the time I wrote to the list, the only available PPC ISO was an old 
daily, NOT the most current. Also, there still has never been an 
official release build of Oneiric. At this time, I see 12.04 in the 
dailies. So I'd be happy to test that but I'd like to write instructions 
for Oneiric. Any chance of getting an official release build?

What do you mean by old ? If it's around October 10, it's the last daily build 
of Oneiric, so the most up-to-date you can have for 11.10. It's not possible to 
have an official release for Oneiric, you can only try to use the last ISO.

For 12.04, you can test dailies later (it's not useful right now, it's too 
early in the cycle). It's more important to test ISO before developement 
release (Alpha, Beta ...).

Julien Lavergne

As he is at UDS, it may be a couple of days before he can get a definative
answer. As with all community releases, I am happy to host them on my
server system. We just need the 'OK'.
