Lubuntu 14.10 beta testing
« on: September 05, 2014, 02:22:35 AM »
Hi All,

(L)Ubuntu reached the beta state last week. The Lubuntu developers are looking for beta testers with PPC hardware. Link: ubuntuforums.org
I have just updated my Lubuntus to 14.10 on my A1-X1000 and on my Sam440ep Flex. I want to do some beta testing. Srtest also has installed Lubuntu 14.10 on his A1-X1000.

Here our experiences:

Testing has begun for the Final Beta (Beta 2) of Lubuntu 14.10 Utopic
Unicorn. Head on over to the ISO tracker to download images, view
testcases, and report results:
http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/324/builds

If you're new to testing, anyone can join and they don't have to be
Linux Jedis or anything. You can find all the information you need to
get started here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing

Please note that we especially need testers for PPC chips and Intel
Macs. We have a special section discussing it here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing/PPC%26Mac64

In particular, if you have an Intel Mac, I have a few questions for
you that might help us trim down the workload of the testing team.
Please get in touch with me directly.

Also, if you have a PPC chip, we're about the only distro actively
supporting this architecture. However, we are community supported, so
without formal testing, the arch will lose more support. So please
join in testing!

Please crosspost this everywhere, especially to any folks that may be
willing to help with PPC.

If you have any other questions or comments, please don't hesitate to
get in touch with me directly by email and/or IRC.

Hi All,

I have bad news for you. Lubuntu 14.10 PPC wasn't released last week.

Quote  Lubuntu QA Team:

Quote

Due to several bugs, including a showstopper for those with Radeon graphics (1377878), there will be no ppc release for this version. We recommend using one of the LTS versions.

Radeon graphics bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1377878


Note:

This bug doesn't affect our Sam440ep (Flex), Sam460ex (Lite), and AMIGA one X1000 computers. They haven't got this bug. The AMIGA one X1000 has even 3D acceleration with the unofficial Mesa package for Lubuntu 14.10 PowerPC (MesaLib-1.0.0.4-Lubuntu_14.10-powerpc-test.tar.bz2).

The AMIGA one X1000 is the only computer which supports Lubuntu 14.10 completely.

Rgds,

Christian
