    New series of spins built from Debian-- SpiralLinux

    My reaction is a smile :) Thank you for creating Gecko Linux; I've used it a couple of times as an easy/lazy way of installing openSuSE (it was great!); and I'm sure SpiralLinux will be a great and useful tool for users who want a Debian base too. (Sorry I'm no longer a user, I replaced my...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Note: this is from memory; so little details maybe in incorrect. Ubuntu Desktop & its then leader (Will Cooke) was trying to be engaged with the community and many blog posts were published, and Will Cooke provided links to ~raw data that generated many of the blogs that remain. Ubuntu blog...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    I'd have to look for the discussion (which was a prior release; likely groovy [20.10, if not hirsute [21.04]) which involved Ubuntu Core devs on the reasons why it was slow.. but it was clear to me from stats of the users using that media in focal [20.04] the users were few, thus paid developer...

    Joey (OMG) often uses the lp. bug ID as his source, but it hadn't been raised when his article was done, and I didn't see a source provided. I'm guessing Joey saw either https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/kinetic-kudu-release-notes/27976 or sil2100/Łukasz sticking his head into room(s) on IRC &...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Two of the last four burns of DVD media for me have had the drive fail... Most CD/DVD burners are now getting rather old. On most my boxes the drives are standard, and that means I just have to get the box open, replace drive with another from a pile of replacement drives (since my replacement...

    And the codename for the next version of Ubuntu is...

    I'd not expect the daily to be started for a week if not longer.. and even then it's mostly to test the changes in setting up for the release are correct/valid. The bug report I'm looking for causes the infrastructure to be modified to handle the new release, ie. a scan currently of...

    And the codename for the next version of Ubuntu is...

    Thanks for posting this, I'd not see the source was Łukasz/sil2100 as I watch for the bug report that is generated that leads to the repository being created. Omg is usually correct; but I wanted something official, which you've now provided :) Yeah it's slow, it's now Tuesday my local time...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Mostly FYI.. but it was me that merged them (and removed the word 'severe' from the title of the other one) as to me they were the same issue. As always, if you disagree with any decision made, please yell out & we'll (or I'll where it was me) re-think it. Lubuntu (along with all flavors)...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Lubuntu media does not come with closed-source proprietary drivers which main Ubuntu (and most flavors do), so with Lubuntu you're using `nouveau` (the open source nvidia driver), which may account for differences between Lubuntu and main Ubuntu or other flavors. Main Ubuntu also include OEM...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Alas another error is detected... Sorry. In my tired state I said "swap partition" when I meant "swapfile", which was the change in `calamares` that got added with Lubuntu 21.04 (and thus applies to later releases). `calamares` has always handled swap partitions, they were available via...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Yeah I did mean 22.04... I should stick to codenames as I'd have been correct if I said jammy, even if many of the readers wouldn't understand what I meant. I was also incorrect in my reading of the time; it was 04:35 and not 05:35; I read a bird feed clock in my tired state that hasn't been...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Lubuntu 21.04's use of `calamares` defaults to creating a swapfile... Same applies to later releases. https://discourse.lubuntu.me/t/swap-and-lubuntu-faq/2591 `calamares` didn't handle swap before our 21.04 release except via the user of "Manual Partitioning" @kc1di All of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    You had me laughing when I read that... Our testing is I suspect the envy of all the flavors, and you're a HUGE part of why. Anyway; release is close.. I just noted a "speak now, or forever hold your peace" type of question...

    Ubuntu (and official flavors) new LTS (22.04) is scheduled for release tomorrow!

    Lubuntu 22.04 LTS has been marked READY. Lubuntu weren't the first flavor to be ready, but weren't last either. Most flavors are now marked READY. http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/432/builds (if unsure what I mean by READY, you can view details at the ISO QA tracker link I...

    Today's article has you changing your DNS settings in Lubuntu...

    I've been writing summaries for UWN since mid-2015, so I've had quite a bit of practice. It's a voice I hope is useful to readers, ie. hopefully enough detail to know if they will benefit from reading the article, but not enough that they won't click the link.. I left off the author name...

    Further to last... It's posted at https://discourse.lubuntu.me/t/external-links-users-may-find-helpful/3156 my intention was to look for 1-2 others to add... I'll get around to that when I can.. (the summary is written in the bot-like format I use for UWN summaries... feel free to edit if...

    > My concern is that I'd appear to be a spammer/promoting myself. If you were a spammer or someone into self-promotion on the Lubuntu discourse, it'd be me that deals with it... so I would not worry about that - and I don't believe anything you'd ever consider posting would concern me from what...

    Today's article has you changing your DNS settings in Lubuntu...

    I'll suggest adding an entry on Lubuntu's discourse with a summary maybe of the article then link to your web site article. It'll maybe allow more people to find it, esp. Lubuntu users who may search our site? Currently I only see VPN type DNS queries (and nothing in the manual if I search...

    That took me a *bit* to understand..... Which is a shame, as I've been hearing it all my life... but alas it was read & not heard o_O

    Today's article has you turning Ubuntu into Lubuntu (and back)...

    Why I started doing it. Doesn't apply now, but my ISP used to allow me to download Ubuntu ISOs quota free (ie. didn't count towards my monthly quota), plus upgrades/package were quota free (when using their provided mirror which was an official Ubuntu mirror anyway), so that's what started me...
