LXF 155 cover disc - Ubuntu 11.10 re-spin - 64 bit?

Postby brianread » Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:27 pm

Hi

I am very keen to move onto the re-spin Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome 3, however (guess what?) i am already running 64 bit "standard" Ubuntu. i am assuming that the re-spin is 32 bit - is there a 64 bit version anywhere I can pickup?

cheers

Brian

No, the idea was to provide a live environment that all could use in association with Jon's article. If you already have 11.10 set up, just install gnome3 to get the same thing.

Yes, I could do that. It is stable now? Previously I'd read that installing Gnome 3 was problematic.

That's exactly what I did to produce the DVD, it's a standard 11.10 with Gnome 3 added and the default theme and desktop changed to suit.

LXF155 coverdisk??

That's clever. The magazine is not yet released, surely.

I presume you mean LXF152.

Yes I do subscribe, but have not seen my copy yet.
When did it appear?
What am I missing?
