[SOLVED] testing upcoming LMDE ISO

Postby ERwan on Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:14 pm

Hi there.

I thought I could help testing next LMDE ISO (mentioned in that page : http://community.linuxmint.com/iso)
But I just don't know where to find them !?

To get the iso's for testing you have to become a tester first. The iso's are not released public.
If you have a account on that Community site you have to contact Clem and he will add you to the testers group.

The current iso's of LMDE are going to be rejected due some DNS resolution problems, so testing these any further won't bring much. When the new iso's will be up for testing i don't know yet.

Thanks Mr. B.

Does that mean I have to be quite skilled ? (I'm not.)
I thought it was just about following instructions like that :

http://community.linuxmint.com/iso/reports/175/14 wrote:How to reproduce:

Launch the liveCD
At the isolinux menu, press Tab to edit the boot line
insert the option plymouth:splash=ubuntu-text
Boot with that modified line

What to expect:

The resulting splash screen should be properly branded for Linux Mint.

I didn't say you have to be quite skilled. And yep, it's following the instructions as you said.

Allright.
Then I'll probably create an account, ask for the ISO, and try to help.
Thanks again.

I'm interested in helping as well. Is it best to reach out to Clem on the community site or in the forums? I did the former a little over a week ago but did not hear back.

Jump in on IRC and ask there. Mind though he's very busy.

I see that the new iso's were recently approved for RC. How do we go about getting those iso's? I'd like to help with the testing effort, but didn't have any luck asking in irc.

Edit: Nevermind, Clem added me to the testing group.
