Coverdisk - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Postby Les » Sat May 12, 2012 2:36 pm

I'm hoping that the LXF#159 coverdisk will feature Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as a 64-bit distro. Can the editor give us a bit of a heads up please? No HUD pun intended!

Also - and hoping for the best of both worlds here - that Xubuntu, Lubuntu will feature on the disk too as 32-bit distros (since they're aimed at older kit - which we all have, surely?)

Hi Les,

The DVD contains Ubuntu 12.04 with the Kubuntu and Xubuntu packages added. We've followed Canonical's recommendations and used the 32 bit version.

We've also included Arch and Scientific Linux - Arch contains both 32 and 62 bit packages, and Scientific Linux is 64 bit.
