    For anyone who's been itching to get their hands on the latest test build of Linux ICE, here's your chance! We need lots of help testing/debugging if we are going to get a release anytime soon. So get your VM's and your CarPCs ready for the bleeding edge.

    LinuxICE-Alpha4-8 Test build

    what's new:
    - Matchbox Desktop2, Panel2, and Window Manager 1.1 with custom LinuxICE theme
    - Updated Calibrator (works with more touchscreens)
    - Latest evtouch driver and udev rules (works very well)
    - New ICEInstall (sets up autologin and tuxonice aka suspend2) - run this after install
    - nGhost 0.95 test build (still a WIP, but very usable)
    - CarMan 0.6-1 obd-II Monitoring program

    What we are working on:

    - Get Matchbox-panel2 to work
    - Get the desktop theme to load
    - Make a deb package for navit

    If you can help us with what we are working on trying to debug, we would most appreciate your help. My time is split many different ways these days so I'm opening up to the community for help.

    If you have any tips or bug reports, here would be a good place to file a fix/bug report.

    You can also discuss the development with myself and the other devs on the Linux ICE IRC channel #linuxice on irc.freenode.com

    Big thanks,
    Kev

    Some more screenshots from LinuxICE Alpha4-12. We are getting pretty close:

    1) check the MD5 sum of the image you created, sounds like a bad burn/download.
    2) which version did you try?

    the latest test build = http://nextabyte.com/nanonymous/down...-Alpha4-12.iso
    the latest test build's MD5sum = b48f406e3768947a6383cc8db25ba470 LinuxICE-Alpha4-12.iso

    thanks for the feedback.

    ps to check the md5sum in Linux type: md5sum [name-of-iso-file]. In windows you'll have to download a md5 calculator (sorry, windows just works that way).

    were you able to check the md5 to see if it matches? what are your hardware specs? which version of ubuntu were you able to boot?

    ran the test build you linked me to, so i assume that it's md5 matches. i am running intel d845gvsh mobo with a samsung hd, then i tried a newer seagate hd. i could boot ubuntu 7.04. i've changed about every setting in bios because i researched the prob and concluded that some changes will help it run better, but didn't.
