I'd love to help test, but I have only one computer - an old hand-me-down 32-bit relic - and it's "mission critical."  I don't dare do beta testing on it.  The laptop, rarely used, is a backup of the desktop.

I have already been using the new Lite Sources app, though, from Ralphy's wonderful repository.

Hopefully you have more than a handful of people doing the testing!  It all sounds very positive, and the new logo is much nicer.

I've noticed that just like Xubuntu 17.04 Linux Lite 3.6 downloads & installs all OS updates automatically. There was a whole list of them last night & I didn't have to do a thing. When I did check for updates later in the evening there was only an update for 'unattended upgrades' left to install. Installed. No issues, very smooth. I also installed LL 3.6 32bit on my Acer netbook. Even with zRam on I didn't find much difference between it & LL 3.4, but there are many OS improvements so I'll install it permanently when the official release comes out at the end of the month. As I have only 1gb of memory on the netbook it uses about 7% of the CPU & about 21% of memory at rest. Nothing out of the ordinary there. But considering the only other OS I can run on a netbook is Puppy Linux, that's above expectations.

Well that was very sneeky of Ubuntu, it's certainly not something I have enabled manually. I'll look to fix this in 3.6 Final. Thank you.

Just curious - when is it decided to put a newer version of the kernel as the LL default? When Ubuntu updates it for one of their point releases?

Recurring installation bug...

The installer still crashes (same for all 3.x releases) when selecting French Canada (Franšais Canada) as language.
The only other changes is the keyboard layout selected is Canadian Multilingual and auto-login checked.
It will crash with or without third party / updates options checked. Time zone Toronto or New-York.
5 different physical computers and VMWare also tried. Hard drives used are unformatted or have been wiped prior to all installations.

ADD : Also note that if I retry the installation with the same settings 2-3 times in a row, it will get over the bug but this is very long as the bug occurs AFTER all files are copied and final settings are done at about 80%.

Translated from the French error message received...
The installer has crashed. We are sorry : the installer has crashed. When closing this window, you will be able to fill out a bug report with the integrated bug report tool. This tool will collect informations about your system and your installation process. Details will be sent on our bug follow-up tool and a developer will take charge of this problem as soon as possible.

Installed 32 bit first time and Keyboard on the V3405  lost the use of some of its letter keys -odd effect was not a number lock issue.  Reinstalled and eventually got num lock on tweaks to function..
Now been running basic but with Zram and preloaded apps.  for circa 2 hrs.  All seems to be working  = updates taken ok.  Resource CPu  currently hovering  between 3% and 21.    memory  running at between 350 and  567Mb of 1.9 GB on wifi internet..   No swap    Have no virus checker screen running.
System info speed checks  seem to be good.  Switched to England repository. Seems OK.

 Will keep testing.  Anything in particular needing  attention??

Jerry: I've ran 'lite sources' on 3 different computers after installation of 3.6beta. I had no issues with running it. Is there anything else specific to it that you would like us to test? I've run it on 2 x 64bit & 1x 32 bit computers. Nothing strange happened, as a matter of fact I've had exactly '0' issues with this beta. Even with my rotten old Acer with nVidia drivers. Have been using each computer daily since last Sunday.

Generally, when a Beta is released, the new features should be tested first. Then any typos in software, errors in the installer (typos, inaccurate information), Help Manual etc. Then what follows is just general, day to day usage of the things that you normally do on your pc to see if anything that you usually use, is not acting any differently (other than what the original developers have changed).

I'm using Lite Sources in 3.4, installed from Ralphy's repo.  It's flawless, easy, and very simple.  An excellent addition to 3.6!

His version is quite different. I need feedback on the official LL one. Thanks :)
