Hi boss, so the information for 11.10 is correct at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/GetLubuntu#A11.10 I hope! If that is correct, then adding the section for 12.04 will be a much easier task for me :) Hoping you had a good Christmas, Phill. On Thu, Dec 29, 2011 at 10:47 PM, Julien

I used the alternate to install to an old laptop 1.3 GHz Celeron M 256 Mb RAM (since upgraded). Ubiquity kept crashing the alternate worked just fine. It gave me a full Lubuntu install. Today I have used the Mini iso to install to a Compaq TC1000 Tablet with a 1GHz Transmeta Crusoe CPU

Hi Hùng, an apology from me. We will get it updated to the alternate ISO. As we got full adoption, the builds and releases of Lubuntu having both the approved system and our older not fully approved builds. I do thank you for bringing this to our attention, we are a small team can miss things.

As you know, before we were adopted, we only had 'home spun' disks... The Full On Ubiquity was always to be the official one, but not a great deal of help for lower spec computers. The argument did go up as to why they botched a bug by requiring 2 X Ram instead of simply putting your patch in.
