Hi Dan,

if the image is a couple of months old, it will be quite out of date now.
Rather than doing a massive zsync (which you can if you wish), it may be
easier to re-download the latest daily build from There is a bug that
affects when you start lubuntu 12-04 you get a blank screen. You can still
type in your password and log-in. See for where we
are up to with it.

As for worrying about meagre skills, do not! The willingness to try the iso
out is all that is required. If you are not familiar with filing bug
reports have a look at  /
ask on the #lubuntu support area or simply just email this list for further
help. We are very short of people with Macs to help with testing, so your
help would be greatly appreciated.

Happy testing!
