Linux Lite 1.0.6 Beta

Release Announcement

This is the second development release for version 1.0.6 of Linux Lite. We've added more content to the Help Manual, added new slides for the install, and fixed some bugs from the 1.0.6 Alpha. Thank you to everyone who helped test the alpha build, I hope that you can join us for this beta test.

If you haven't already, please consider 'liking' our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Linuxlite/572323192787066 and help spread the word to people who may not have heard of linux operating systems before.

NOTE: Intel have stopped developing 12.04 graphics driver releases so I have removed that part from the Help Manual, when you get your copy of this Beta, please do Menu, Install Updates so you have the latest version of the Manual. The Manual now has an updated Intel drivers tutorial.

    These are test builds, you can't upgrade because there have been changes, bug fixes. If you want the full 1.0.6 experience installed to your computer, wait for the final. I don't have a release date for that yet sorry.

    I don't mind re-installing I just cant figure out this mount function in terminal. I've been on google for two hours and still can't get it. I can burn a disc but I would rather not use one if I don't have to.

    Start a seperate thread and we'll help you with that :)

    I went for downloading LinuxLite 1.0.6 Beta today since i've tried the Alpha and was my first Linux distro but everything worked so easy that i'm captivated! Internet and the other packages all started to function right away! Amazing! Now i really love Linux (I've tried other distros in Live mode but i prefer Lite!) The only nag i have is that i wanted to download as Torrent but surprise! NOBODY is seeding! Yes: 0 seeds! I have Tixati and could see other users trying to download the torrent and they eventually disconnected... Bummer! I would seed if at least the torrent iso had 1 other seeder there (i don't know how to upload torrents) but no way! It's a real shame! Now i have to download from SourceForge Slo-mo (really sssslllloooowwww) server so it's Sunday and i don't feel like waiting an hour and half for that! Maybe tomorrow or when i go to sleep... Anyway thanks for the AMAZING Lite distro! Makes my Intel Atom 1.66 Ghz 1 Gb Ram Notebook look like 2013! (and it's graphically beautiful and cool too! Hate Ubuntu's orangy/red crap!) I'll be in touch man! Have a nice one!I'm sorry! I downloaded from SourceForge and it took only 18 minutes with 12 mbps Wi-Fi... Pretty fast for 720 MB! So forget the torrent thing! Now i wanted to install alongside my Win 7 OS but the Ubuntu (from Canonical) tutorial says you have to download the legacy Ubuntu server edition yada yada yada or else you'll overwrite your Windows MBR, so partiton /boot /sys /home in ext3 (some other is ext4) yada yada yada and then more ladidadi & blabla... So Linux alongside Windows is a pain in the neck! I'm really trying how to do it so i can have Linux Lite on my HDD too (now i've only used the Live USB version... can't download anything coz it's an old 1 Gb stick...) but it seems to be a daunting task! Maybe you Linux Jedis could put together a more clearer tutorial than the one on Ubuntu Raring site! (Or i can buy a 16/32 Gb pen drive... I have a 4 Gb pen but it's not enough and it's being used already) So any help as to install alongside Windows with no screw-ups would be welcomed! Thanks!

    Unable to install via USB stick. Same method worked fine with the Alpha. Tried twice, same error.

    EDIT: I just installed 1.0.6 Alpha. My USB stick is not the problem. Also MD5 Checksum of my ISO matches above.

    What was your method of burning the iso? And what version where you trying to install?

    Hi Kafshiel, welcome to the community.
    The beta torrent works fine here as you can see from the screenshot. Maybe try another bittorrent client, I have never heard of 'Tixati'

    In regards to dual booting with Windows, the installer takes care of all that, please see the Install Guide section of the manual - http://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/install.html

    UNetbootin did not work, so I used Win32DiskImager to write this new Linux Lite 1.0.6 Beta iso to USB pen. This install method has worked with all previous linux Lite iso, including the 1.0.6 Alpha.
  • jlostjlost Registered
    When I am on a different internet connection in a few days, I will download the iso again in case it is corrupt, despite the matching checksum.
  • ValtamValtam Registered
    Was noticing that 1.0.6 seemed to boot quicker, so ran 5 tests back to back with 1.0.4 and got the same result each time:

  • ozcanozcan Registered
    Really very nice distro, just wonder that why not shipped XFCE 4.10?
  • ValtamValtam Registered
    Hello ozcan, welcome. All packages are shipped according to the Ubuntu 12.04 repo's since the distro is built on 12.04. Next year when we do the next major release 4.10 will be installed by default.

    If you've installed 1.0.6 and a drive is asking you for a password, just means you didn't give it a mount point during the install. If that's the case, mount it and change the permissions to your user.

    I will look closely during the install, any chance of adjusting volume with the keycombo?, previous 1.0.4, amixer set Master 5+ worked but not now...

    The volume configuration has changed since 1.0.4, please refer to the Help Manual for an overview of sound on 1.0.6. Cheers.

    The Help & Support information is very helpful. Great work. I have a suggestion:

    Consider adding the following to the section "Add Another User":
    Adding User to Group

    More specifically, how to give a new user sudo permissions or just standard desktop permissions.

    Enjoying Linux Lite,
    Thanks

    was this reference to login automatically to a separate partition, without logging in?, can't seem to do this with sudo chmod... On my machine I have one user "apa" and will like to maintain it that way...

    Hi Valtam,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Time permitting maybe you can comment on the following question:

    I've added a new user to the sudo group successfully using the two different methods that follow. Is one method recommended over the other?


    Example
    To add a user 'name' to sudo group


    Method #1

    adduser name sudo



    Method #2

    sudo nano /etc/sudoers

    # User privilege specification

    root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
    name ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

    1.0.6 Beta Review:

    Am keeping this nice distro close to my heart waiting for the final to come out. Sincerely hope you will be adding the replacement for Remastersys into the final (SystemImager?). I notice you've left it out of this version because Remastersys has gone south. Or at least add it to the list of installers. I have a linux distro that has been discontinued so I've got my eye on this very easy to use yet efficient distro. Great Work.

    By far the simplest option is to: sudo adduser user sudo
    The second method should only be used as: sudo visudo

    Cheers.
