A couple of questions to straighten things out:
I'm trying to identify the version of the DVD install I have;
1. Is there some way to find the LMCE version info?

I found
Code: [Select]
Kubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" - Release i386 (20071016.1) in the /.disk/info file...

2. Does LMCE do an update over the internet (automatically) at the moment, after say, a clean DVD install?
I remember on several occasions seeing errors passing by when doing apt-get update like these:
Code: [Select]
Err http://deb.linuxmce.com 20dev_ubuntu/main Packages
  404 Not Found
Hit http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/main Packages
Hit http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/restricted Packages
Hit http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/multiverse Packages
Hit http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/universe Packages

Reading package lists... Done
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Thanks for your input!

On point 1; There is no simple way to differentiate between a late release candidate and the release. One sure way would be to download the release DVD again... but this is clearly a long process. However if you cannot be sure that you downloaded the LinuxMCE-0710 release DVD iso then I would recommend a fresh download as your best choice. The version info you mention is purely for the underlying Kubuntu-0710 base OS.

On point 2; There have never been any LinuxMCE-0710 automatic updates pushed out since release. However you can use apt-get from the console to install new packages etc (this can cause breakages though if you do not understand what your doing)

All the best
