The alpha 3 for 10.10 is out, '''Pre-releases of Maverick are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.'''
Please ensure that you read [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Developers/Maverick/Alpha/3| About 10.10 a3]] for where the project is up to and known issues.

It is recommended that you join the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved|lubuntu mailing list]] so as to keep abreast of changes. As always, please try to use the torrent download & be a part of it. Torrent Download shares the work between several computers and should be much faster.

The Server Download depends on one computer, if that is busy, the download speed will slow; if it gets too many requests it will refuse them (think 200 people, one computer... it just cannot keep up).

[[http://phillw.net/lubuntu-maverick-alpha3.iso|Secondary Server Download]]

[[http://people.ubuntu.com/~gilir/md5sum.txt|md5CheckSums]] You should not need this, as the md5checksum and checking is detailed below.
== Minimal Installation and 64 Bit ==
By using [[http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/|32 Bit minimal]] or
[[http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/|64 Bit minimal]]
You can add the '''lubuntu-desktop''' package, or the '''lubuntu-core''' package. [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/MinimalInstall|Minimal Install Instructions]] is where to get further deatils, along with a work-around for the "Unmanaged connection" bug.
== General Testing ==
During the release cycle, things will get broken. You can really reduce these occurrences by taking the time to read [[http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1479146|Partial Upgrades]]. The discussions at [[http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=385|Maverick Meerkat Testing]] are also a great resource.

== Check downloaded image file and CD ==
 1. Get an LXTerminal session started (Accessories --> LXTerminal).
 2. Go into the directory with the '''lubuntu-maverick-alpha3.iso''' file in it. If you have it on your desktop, then it would be {{{
cd Desktop
 3. To check you are in the correct directory {{{
ls lubuntu-maverick-alpha3.iso
}}} will return {{{
 4. Once you have confirmed you are in the correct directory {{{
md5sum lubuntu-maverick-alpha3.iso
It should report back '''aaa7f31fd712cd7376859594849d4806'''. If it does not, the download is corrupt and you need to re-download.
 5. Burn the cd (help on this can be found at [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto|Burning an ISO]], there is a screen cast for using xfburn at [[http://lubuntu.net/node/38 | Burning CDs/DVDs (using XFBurn)]]). Always burn at a slow speed (4X, or slower).
 6. Check the CD {{{
dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=2048 count=282225 | md5sum

It should also report back '''aaa7f31fd712cd7376859594849d4806'''. If not, the CD did not burn correctly.

== Test cases ==
There is some test cases for people who want to test if there is no regression in each release (stable or developement)
