Ubuntu Live CD

Post by Treloar » 30 Apr 2016, 03:28

Try as I might the download or type of disc I can get is for installation, which is NOT what I want :!:

You'd have to get an older version for a Live CD. Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin) seems to be the latest one in their back release catalog and those ones don't seem to have been updated since 2014.
But you can find them here if you really do want a CD version: http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04.5/

I would probably try and get a DVD drive into the target computer though. Or get a USB stick if the computer can boot from those and use LinuxLive USB Creator: http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

In the finish I used Google to get one, trying to get 1 from the actual Ubuntu site is apparently impossible.

Am going through the motions of trying to setup and use my laptop as a hotspot, that is to say it's wireless to provide connection to tablet' and iphone and so on, using the wired connection for shared internet.

Unfortunately, try as I might it does not work.

Before anyone asks why I am trying to do this, it's because the wireless on my 7800n no longer works. Looks like I will have to go buy a router or wireless access point, disappointed I cannot use stuff I already have to do the job.

I don't understand.

You either didn't read the replies in this thread, or you were looking for something different than what you asked for. The latest Ubuntu ISOs can be found at http://www.ubuntu.com/download. Presumably you want the latest desktop version in 64 bit which is located here:

http://releases.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu ... -amd64.iso

If you're saying you specifically want CD ISOs rather than DVD, then as Mythor says in his post, the last CD ISOs were available for version 12.04.5 then you can get from http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04.5/

If you were trying to download from the Internode mirror it might've been down. Not sure if they've fixed it yet but I saw someone mention it being broken yesterday.

Also be aware that you won't get your laptop running as an actual access point (i.e. in "infrastructure mode" as some call it) without specific hardware (some wireless cards will do it, most will not), and software that isn't included in the Ubuntu CD/DVD. You will get it running in Ad-Hoc mode, sure. But not everything supports connecting to ad-hoc access points.

Just buy a wireless access point. You can get them from $40 at your typical computer parts shop. Then you don't need to worry about your router.

If you want to use linux as a router, try using iptables masquerade. Google should give you some simple instructions... or just use a distribution designed for that, like smoothwall.
