downloading Kubuntu 710 ISO's
« on: May 28, 2008, 02:50:13 pm »
It seems like this release is not available anymore from Kubuntu.

Since Kubuntu 710 ISO live cd is a dependency for LMCE 710 perhaps the Kubuntu 710 ISO's should be kept on the LMCE mirrors.   How else can someone get the Kubuntu 710 "Gutsy" ISO as dependency of LMCE?

Cheers

I am not sure of your installation requirements, but the dvd iso images are prebuilt with Kubuntu 710. The drawbacks to this type of install, is that it will wipe your entire HDD. But the benefits are a very easy, and fast install (like 20 minutes) vs. the 1-1/2 to 2hr install via the cd's.

I have done this both ways, and I prefer the DVD install over the CD install. If you are concerned about disk space, slap a 30 or 40G disk in there, and use the DVD. If not, then just use the DVD. You will find that the install is much less painless, and you can be experiencing all that is LMCE in much less time.

Just my 2 cents  ;D

Hi Seth,

Yes, I realize that.  I need the flexibility of the CD ISO's

I also noticed that Kubuntu  has remastered 710 with the KDE 4.0 GUI.   I had read earlier that Kubuntu 8.04 is not compatable, but perhaps the remastered 710 with KDE 4 will be fine?

Main thing is I need a CD ISO!

Cheers

Hi.  I just downloaded 7.10 Gutsy the other day.  I Googled "kubuntu 7.10 download" and a choice was http://releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/gutsy/ where I download the .iso I needed.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Cheers. :)
