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. This section is dedicated to the development version of Lubuntu. As with all alphas and non-stable betas they are not suitable for a production environment, please take the time to read [[http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1594833 | Common Questions for Testing]]
Line 11: Line 10:
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). '''Ubiquity (the installer) will ask you for keyboard configuration. Be sure to say No, so you will be able to configure your keyboard properly and select your layout. Otherwise, you may not be able to use your keyboard after the reboot.'''

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.
Currently there is no testing release available for minimal or 64 bit, this section will get updated when there is. Thank you for your patience.

== 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 {{{
lubuntu-maverick-alpha3.iso
}}}
 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
}}}

Testing Lubuntu

This section is dedicated to the development version of Lubuntu. As with all alphas and non-stable betas they are not suitable for a production environment, please take the time to read Common Questions for Testing

Ubiquity (the installer) will ask you for keyboard configuration. Be sure to say No, so you will be able to configure your keyboard properly and select your layout. Otherwise, you may not be able to use your keyboard after the reboot.

It is recommended that you join the Lubuntu mailing-list so you keep notified of changes and bugs. As always, please try to use the torrent download and keep uploading. Torrent Download shares the work between several computers and should be much faster. As it's free software, you don't need to worry about legal issues.
