= 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 [[http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1594833 | 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 [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved|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.

== Lubuntu Oneiric 11.10 ==
||<rowstyle="background:#0066CC; color:#FFFFFF;"> Version || Torrent Download || Direct Download || MD5SUM || Announcement Mail ||

== Minimal Installation and 64 Bit ==
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.
##By using [[http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/natty/main/installer-i386/beta-2/images/netboot/|32 Bit minimal]] or [[http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/natty/main/installer-amd64/beta-2/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 details, along with a work-around for the "Unmanaged connection" bug.
