Hi - really liking the look of LXLE 14.04.

However I cannot get the 32bit revisited .iso to boot at all on my Samsung n150 netbook... (which would be better due to low ram)

I have downloaded via torrent twice - if I dd the image to USB stick it doesn't boot at all (I have tried multiple usb sticks also) - using dd works fine with 14.04 iso.

 if I wipe the usb stick and make a vfat partition - then use the usb startup disk creator (from kubuntu) - I get the grub bootloader (missing when I use dd) however after  a few seconds I get

(Initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.sqashfs failed: Invalid argument
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

How can I get the 32bit revisited iso to boot?

usb formatting issue, sounds crazy, but reformat your usb using fat16 and i'll bet it will work.

Kubuntu 13.10 is broken for UEFI installs. You will just get the grub2 cli after reinstall..

Which a really easy fix - you just need to copy the kubuntu folder in the efi directory to ubuntu.

I.e - install kubuntu - it won't be able to boot (just grub2 cli) - load up kubuntu live cd - mount the /efi partition then

sudo cp -rv /boot/efi/EFI/kubuntu /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu

Will 'fix' it.

What happened to Q+A?

One word of warning - if you dual boot with ubuntu (why would you want to) you will get multiple UEFI entries that all load ubuntu - kubuntu is accessible via the 'ubuntu 13.10' entry in grub (what a mess).

I tried unity to see how things were going..

I'd say its like self harm at present.

Everytime you look for an application you spam yourself.

It really is a joke - I search for terminal in unity - dash found some Italian jazz or something similar.

@openSUSE download.opensuse.org seems down - is there anywhere I can see the 'official' status?
