Tribe 4 Released
Pre-releases of Gutsy are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
Tribe 4 is the fourth in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Gutsy development cycle. The Tribe images are known
to be reasonably free of show-stopper CD build or installer bugs, while
representing a very recent snapshot of Gutsy. You can download it here:
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/gutsy/tribe-4/ (Ubuntu desktop and Server)
See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors for a list of mirrors.
Some new exciting features have landed which cannot wait to be tried
and tested. Please refer to the following web pages for details:
This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some
bugs. Among these are the following (so you don't need to bother
reporting these if you encounter them):
* When starting the Ubuntu live CD, or on a freshly installed Ubuntu
system, you will sometimes get a crash report for the Deskbar
applet. Please ignore this crash.
* The desktop CD does not install translation support from network
repositories. Please use System -> Administration -> Language
Support to add translations after the installation.
* On Kubuntu, OpenOffice.org does not start. Please install the
package "openoffice.org-gnome" for now to make it work.
* The "Check CD" CD menu option does not work on the Kubuntu desktop
CD. Unfortunately there is no workaround.
* On Edubuntu server installs, the "Building LTSP root" step takes a
very long time (in the order of 15 minutes) without visible
progress. It will eventually finish, though.

Please be aware that this list usually has several dozen mails every
We also suggest that you subscribe to the ubuntu-devel-announce list
if you're interested in following Ubuntu development. This is a
low-traffic list (a few posts a month) carrying announcements of
approved specifications, policy changes, alpha releases, and other
Bug reports should go to the Ubuntu bug tracker:
