Has anybody had the time to try the beta ISO out?

Using it right now.
Nothing strange to report.
Anything you want tested?
The intstall went fine. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. ext4 standard partition write.
Gdebi hasn't given me any errors like it did before when it was finished. I think that error has been documented here somewhere.
Wireless is working fine for me.
DDM found my nvida card and installed it ok.

The only thing I find strange and I'm not sure if I had this before is:
I do an htop and see that some swap space is being used. it shows just a little over 2 GB ram usage out of 4 GB on my system and swap shows 39/4999MB. Nothing I am going to worry about.

Edit1:
One other thing I want to mention. I have always had this issue and figured that is just the way it works.
For example this morning I say from grizzler there was going to be a security update.
My update icon in the task bar had a check mark in it suggesting no updates available. However when I clicked on it there was the security update ready for me to install.

Since I'm getting a brand new computer today and naturally we all know what I'll be doing with it... :mrgreen: I'll go ahead and grab that beta iso and give it a whirl and let you know how it goes on the new system. Give me a day or two since I have some preparations and backups to do on my old HP laptop, my T61, and the new machine.

Congratulations on your new machine!
Today I received mine as well and I'm going to use that one to implement SSD support for the next live-installer.

Since I haven't heard any breakages coming from the last ISO I went ahead and built the other ones as well.
I'm only going to test installing the ISOs and upload them.

Congrats on your new machine as well! Looks sweet! :)

I'm having trouble downloading the beta iso from the link you gave previous. (/dev/testing). It's so slow no matter if I try torrent or not. In fact, torrent wouldn't even start the download. Via web/firefox, looks like it'll take 4 hours. :(

I'm going to actually do the beta iso install (IF I can download it, even) on the HP laptop. Looks like the laptop could be a good candidate for testing, actually. Why not. The keyboard is hosed, so I velcro'd a USB keyboard on top of it. I can just use it as a test machine. I use my T61 as a spare in case my main system goes down. I have to update that one yet, actually.

Going to be a busy week.

Off Topic (Sorry): Forgot to share the link to the new computer since you mentioned yours: :)

Nice HP all in one. Should be interesting! Win8, Secure Boot, etc. I will be disabling that before I even let the HD boot the first time.

I've just put the download I picked up last week back in the transmission directory and started seeding. See if trying the torrent works for you now.

Downloading from the site now. Not torrent. Didn't see this until 21% downloaded. Don't want to start over at this point. But thanks. If this fails again, I'll try torrent again.

I just finished uploading the HE editions to http://downloads.solydxk.nl/dev/
The BE edition had to be rebuilt because a python image API in stable did not have the same functions as the version in testing and I had to update the live installer.

Dang, and what I was downloading was 68% done. :( At this rate, I'll never get it downloaded. Is this going to be the one that is going to be on the main download page?

With all that is going on, I think I won't do this after all until the ISO is already on the main download page. 1.8GB is a lot to have to keep starting and stopping. Today I really don't have to the time to wait, unfortunately.

I'll install the July iso that I already have and then update from there. Will be faster/easier. New computer is expected any time now so I really need to get the other machines prepared and stored away.

Downloading the SolydX64 iso now. I originally tried the torrent, but apparently the server isn't seeding. I'll stick the download in the transmission directory on my system once it's complete.

@RavenLX,
Now seeding both the SolydX64 201411 and SolydK64 201411 iso. Give it a try. If it's fast enough...

In case the user doesn't have an internet connection, the live installer crashes.
I will have to build and upload all ISOs again with a patched live installer :evil:

Because I don't want to have to download all that two times I think I'll just wait until the file is live in the public download page from the home page. For now, I'll try to do the UP on the T61 because I don't want to lose my configurations, etc. The HP Laptop is getting a low-level format right now. So that machine is out of commission for a little while (I'm like that in that if I do a fresh install, I do a low-level format first and really clean things - old crazy habit of mine).

Nice. Not. Just downloaded the lot. :evil:

By the way, isn't the torrent supposed to work even if nobody else is seeding? I.e. shouldn't the server itself be seeding as well?

Only when the ISOs are in production.

Good news, guys. Well, sorta I guess. Checked the tracking # and the new computer won't be here until tomorrow. Gives me more time. Since the HP laptop will be my test bed of sorts, maybe I'll wait until you guys get an ISO ready to test? Then I'll try to download it via torrent. Let me know when ready.

Meanwhile, the UP on this T61 seems to be going well so far.

i tried the previous iso (the 201410 from Oct 30th) and the live-installer behaved well in both situations i used it.
downloading now (for comparison) the latest K64

I'm afraid I'm not going to make it on time. The live installer keeps crashing when no internet connection is available. Unfortunately I won't have much time for at least a week.

@Schoelje: No worries. I'm going to go ahead and download the latest iso in the /dev folder via torrent anyway. Then I'll play around installing it on the HP. I normally don't install without internet connection anyway but I might do it just to see what happens on my machine.

If it works, that may be what I'll use for the new PC (connected to the internet during install on that one of course).
