LinuxMCE 1.1 BETA?
« on: May 16, 2007, 03:34:29 pm »
The Wiki and 'Install troubles' pages indicate there is a 1.1 BETA out there somewhere. Anyone knows where to download this baby for testing ?!

There is no link available yet, but it will be available very soon, maybe even today.

YAY!! it's now available!  wiki has a torrent!!!
The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
My other computer is your windows box.
I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.

I believe you need Kubuntu Fiesty..

Part of Fiesty is an update to X11...
Looks like the disks may contain a livecd version of it... I'm still downloading the torrent...
I downloaded the Kubuntu Fiesty DVD a couple of days ago when I first noticed the wiki..
I've installed kubuntu and running it now... all setup ready for 1.1. :)

Good luck!

Having already installed Ubuntu Feisty on a machine ready to try v1.1, is there a simple procedure to convert this to Kubuntu?  or do I need to D/L another installer to start again?

Also, I don't know the first thing about Torrents, will the 1.1 beta be available to download from any mirrrors?

Thanks,

Mark.

You should be able to download KDE from the ubuntu mirrors..
haven't done it personally, but I have installed gnome onto a server.. pretty straight forward

Search ubuntu's site for installing KDE on Ubuntu...
it's probably something like sudo apt-get install KDE
there may be a how-to there too... it's probably faster, but not as quite as easy...

Before you do that, it looks like the new installer has a livecd so you may not need to.

The torrent:  click the link, and open it with (whatever your torrent proggy is)
ubuntu installs one by default, can't remember which one...
I think it's BitTornado...
anywho, Torrents are Distributed files... the actual file is broken up into chunks.. and the chunks can be downloaded virtually on their own... This way, you can have multiple chunks downloading at the same time..
and vice versa, when you start downloading, the data you download is available for whomever needs it..
Most torrent clients try to download the hardest to find chunks first, to make them available to the swarm.

The swarm is simply a group of computers that are all trying to download the same file.

hope that helps.
