Should I perform updates?

In the past Vinux recommended users not to upgrade packages after installing Vinux unless they had a very good reason. We now recommend that when possible users perform updates on a regular basis. This will enable the Vinux team to update packages, and introduce new features.

This does not include upgrading to new Ubuntu versions, this will more than likely break the Vinux specific settings that make your system accessible.

Below, you can download tools to assist booting to USB via CD boot disks and previous releases of Vinux.

Please be aware that the previous Vinux releases referred to here no longer get updates from Ubuntu or Debian and are not officially supported by Vinux.

USB boot CD for older computers.


This CD is used when a computers bios does not support booting directly from a USB stick, or if you generally just want to boot from CD instead of USB to save enabling USB booting. Simply plug your pen drive in to the PC after burning the boot manager to a CD and restart your computer. When your pc restarts, press any key to boot from CD. Then, assuming CD booting is enabled and your pen drive is plugged in, the CD will boot Vinux from your USB drive.
