No problem my good friend:


I wish we could get that assigned to a living, breathing person.


PS: remember I'm trying to track results here:

could you repeat the bug number for tasksel so I can chase it!

Just FYI, using the mini.iso (either standard pae or non-pae) just using Install, and later choosing "Ubuntu LXDE desktop" works great. Really! It just needs a rename in 'tasksel'.

I haven't yet tried the "minimal install" but the net-boot image seems almost bullet proof. I think we can almost eliminate the need for CLI instructions.

That said I do need to check a few other things, but it seriously seems to work just awesome. And there was a rebuild yesterday that needs more testing.

Every time there's a rebuild I have to test at least 5 different installation options.

Hi Lance,
we are going to be discussing the 5 (so far) variants of installing lubuntu, from minimal core to such estorics as desktop with no--reccomends. I proposed 3, someone else proposed a different 3. So we will most likely document all 5 :)  It will keep those wanting to explain things busy as we set up the new page area(s) ready to be slotted in when 12.04 is launched.

Our mini-iso install / Alternate does assume people do not have a system to do a Ubiquity install, as such it is a more of a command line driven install. But I certainly see no harm in adding some screen-shots into the wiki area, provided we do not have images so large as to create problems for people with limited speed / data caps on their internet connections.

Totally OT but I think we may be able to make use of this link for our mini.iso how-to:


Maybe we should ask for permission?

I also reassigned that "naming" bug from 'debian-installer' to 'tasksel':


I hope one of the devs picks up on that soon.

I still have much more testing to do, but remember my goal for completion is not until Beta 1. That should give us time to tweak what I get wrong.

That a problem of "taste". I personally think it's very useful to have
the terminal in fullscreen, to not be limited to the 80 pixel resolution.

However, it's true that people seem to be surprise by this change. But
we can drop it later in the cycle.
