Breezy Badger (5.10) Ports and Versions Roundup October 13, 2005

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.
trackback

Now that Breezy Badger (version 5.10) is out the door, there are too many things to go searching for, like, where and how to find Kubuntu, Edubuntu, the new architecture ports, the dvd images with both live and install options etc, so let us do a quick roundup of the available options, shall we? I have been reading the announcements and the updates, and every other announcement gets me thinking, “Oh cool, so there is a downloadable image for this too. So lest we lose track, and have trouble finding stuff, I am going to list all the available CD/DVD images and options related to Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu etc here. If you find an CD/DVD image link missing here, please leave a comment, and I will add it in.

What is new for 5.10 is that Ubuntu has been ported to three new architectures on an experimental basis. Also Edubuntu makes it’s debut. The developers have also put out a seperate cd image for Ubuntu server installation, which, I expect leaves out the snazzy gui stuff :). There have also been releases of Kubuntu Images.

I’m not sure the ubuntu-server downloads are actually ‘released’ – it seems more like daily builds (compare the files’ names and location with the DVD releases).

2. Shetil - October 14, 2005

Yeah, the ubuntu-server only seems to be a daily build.

Can anybody tell me different from ubuntu-server and the ordinary release?

Shot, Shetil,

From the Ubuntu 5.10 Release Announcement

Ubuntu for Servers: This is a CD installer specifically optimised for server installation. Download this image if you will be setting up servers running Ubuntu.

4. Shot - October 15, 2005

Hm, I somehow missed the server announcement. The question, though: *which* daily should I use, given they all are named breezy-*, not ubuntu-5.10-*? :o)

5. ubuntonista - October 15, 2005

Shot,

The latest daily, perhaps? I suppose that will have any critical security updates as well. Breezy is the same as 5.10, so I suspect that is only a naming issue,w hich shouldn’t matter.

6. Shot - October 15, 2005

Yes, the catch is, in case of the desktop release every ISO up until release was called breezy-*, but the release ones are called ubuntu-5.10-*.

This, technically, shouldn’t matter, and I believe the latest ISO (pointed with the ‘daily’ link) is most probably the final one, but there’s nothing that would disprove a theory that this might as well be just a -server version of a pre-release breezy-* daily build, and not a -server version of the final, released build.

I wouldn’t raise this in case of a desktop install, but on a server, I’d love to be sure that I’m, in fact, using the final release, and not something with, say, some cryptic bug somwhere in /etc/skel that would trickle down to the default files of the users created at install. (That’s an example of a bug that can’t be fixed by upgrading.)

7. Shot - October 15, 2005

Ok, I guess I got it all sorted out in the end. The link in the announcement should lead to http://releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-server/5.10/ – there, in fact, are the ubuntu-server-5.10-* files. 🙂

8. ubuntonista - October 15, 2005

Thanks Shot, I have now fixed the link.
