Re: Fwd: Gearing up for 15.04 image testing


Yeah, I am one of the people who were able to get some 32bit images booting
on my system. The other flavors worked fine except for lubuntu 32bit. I
believe it had something to do with the xsever not supporting my GPU.

Walter is right. It is hard for developers to fix bugs if they don't have
the hardware to perform the testing on. It would be like finding a needle
in a stack of needles. Luckily, Xubuntu is my primary favorite. We'll just
have to see what happens.
