Re: Fwd: Gearing up for 15.04 image testing


In my opinion there is too limited test data to conclude whether Lubuntu 15.04 i386 is working as too few tests have been done. My experience up to version 20150413 (which I will try today) is as follows. In the recent days I have tested a number of 32bit daily's in two single core machines and one dual core machine but none of these dvds could be booted to either live session or to manual disk partitioning, with bug #1432843. The dvds were burned with either Windows ISO Workshop or Linux XBurner, but this made no difference. All dvds are starting up but are hanging at some point. Crash dump is about Xorg. The 3 PC's I do the testing on all have nvidia cards. The amd64 vivid could be installed several times without problems on the dual core machine. Moreover I have crashed I think three alpha i386 installations when trying to upgrade to beta.
Only the alternate i386 could be installed in the recent days.
Meanwhile I have also installed on two machines Debian Jessie daily which are OK (but not so user friendly as Lubuntu).

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.
