[Lubuntu-qa] Final Beta

I can zsync the iso files and start testing, but where should I focus
during this week-end?

- testing in general according to the test cases

- or testing the freezing problem, or should I ask: which kernel do you
want me to test, the standard one or Joseph Salisbury's bug-fixed kernel,

- or should I test for freezing with zRAM switched off, to {find/rule
out} if there might be also some other cause of freezing?

I think for current testing, as we know of
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1227202 I don't think
it needs reporting during testing, until we get to the actual Final Beta
testing. We have a work round (either disable zram or reset the machine).
This will allow Joseph to work out where we go next in testing the proposed
fix on an ISO. For anyone who is running 13.10 as 'smoke testing' i.e. day
to day usage, I'd strongly suggest that they use the proposed kernel to see
if solves the 'freeze' problem that is experienced intermittently.

In order to 'keep all the ducks in a row' I include the details of how to
install the test kernel below.

Open LXTerminal

sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.11.0-7-generic_3.11.0-7.14~lp1227202v1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i

Please note that there is currently only an AMD64 version of this kernel.
