Kubuntu alternate or desktop
« on: May 25, 2007, 12:42:13 pm »

I want to get Kubuntu up and running ready for 1.1 release.  Should I install the desktop or the command line version?  Does it make any difference.

In the future I want to have the quickest start up possible - would the command line version be better for this?

Alternat or desktop are the same, except that alternate is in text mode, so people with fairly exotic hardware can complete the install and, for instance, install another graphics driver.
I installed Feisty using alternate (because I am using an ATI Xpress 1250 integrated graphics processor), installed linux-restricted-modules for the kernel, and installed xorg-fglrx :)

So bottom line: If you cannot complete the installation using desktop, use alternate to install, and solve your problems from there :)
