Installation file for Ubuntu 7.04?
« on: May 01, 2007, 10:33:37 pm »
I'm totally new to linux, and I have installed the 7.04 version. It was not until afterwards that I discovered that the linux mce only works on 6.10. Does anyone know when the installation file for 7.04 will be out.

I tried to follow some steps that I found here on the forum to make the 6.10 installation work on 7.04, but since I'm not particularly good at linux I couldn't make it work. If someone can tell me exactly what to do to work around this, I would appreciate it. Otherwise I'll just wait for the new installation file.

The 7.04 installer will be out in a week or two, as far as I know.

Will there be an installation file for 64 bit processors as well?

Since the packages would have to be ported from the 32bit to the 64bit platform, I'm guessing it will be a long time before we see support for 64bit kernels.  I'm hoping the next rev will play better with existing apps, i can live using the 32bit version if it doesn't try to take over the network in my house :-)

"in a week or two". I've come across that phrase a few times.
What is the source of that information? Is there a definite date set?
