Lubuntu 13.04 PPC Testing

I guess the source of my (self-created) confusion is this link found via iso
which has a download for alternate ppc ISO. I will wait and see what comes
from the dailies.



RE: testing netboot - no promises, but if I find time


On another but somewhat unrelated note: As a Linux newbie, I have been
"lurking" for about a year and have some thoughts/observations on building
community involvement specific to PPC users. Would this mailing list be the
appropriate place to present those?


Thank you.

there was not a beta-1 release of PPC-alternate (just as there is not one
for beta-2). Once the dailies start to rebuild, please feel free to test
(and get others to test). Lubuntu would love to have both -desktop and
-alternate out for very architecture we support; this can only happen if
people roll their sleeves up and help test :) 


Head over to for details on joining
lubuntu-qa, details on PPC-MAC and links to how more information  on testing
and reporting bugs. The lubuntu-qa email list is the better one to ask for
help on, none of us bite :)


Thanks for the interest you have shown in helping test PPC, we really do
need each and every tester across all our proposed iso releases,

Phil mentioned in the forum that beta1 was missed. I'm not familiar
with how the release schedule works.
Does this mean testing PPC 13.04 beta 1 alternate would be a waste of time?
When installing on older (G3) hardware, I usually prefer the alternate
due to they usually also have low ram.

Thank you.
