Default Dell Mini 9 Ubuntu Restore iso image - 10-15-2008, 02:03 AM

Uploaded to Demonoid here: http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/1654425/8783450/

and The Pirate Bay here: http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4446...tore_iso_image

Thanks again to UnaClocker for creating the iso and originally uploading this torrent. These two trackers will ensure wide distribution. Oh and thanks Dell for making this freely available :?: :!: :?:

Im downloading and seeding as well 120KB/s up obviously no one else is or my download speeds would be better... Nevertheless I'll seed for a bit.

Would it be possible to install this iso via a USB stick in the same way as other versions of Ubuntu, I can't get hold of an external DVD drive!

Thanks,

I tried many times to get the iso onto usb but it never works, it gets to a stage where it says it's mounting root from device and then just hangs.

I have checked around other forums saying to use dd bs=1024 /if=iso /of=usb to do it but when i do the usb stick becomes unreadable.

Use unetbootin to do the iso to usb and change the linux boot syntax from boot=cd to boot=usb and let me know how you get on.

No USB stick boot joy here either. I had the same issue with creating one and gave up after the third try.

thanks for posting this. i have a lot of bandwidth, so i'll leave it seeding at half a megabyte/second upstream for a week or two... should make things a bit faster for the next few people to download.

Thanks for the help. Went for Hardy Ubuntu instead in the end which worked fine from USB. Just realised I need to ditch the swap partition though, so will have to reinstall. Otherwise working lovely!
