Ubuntu Quick Installation Preseed Link Updated!




priority=critical locale=en_US url=http://bit.ly/uinstall


I've maintained for some time now a preseed file (previously called "uquick") that you can use with your Ubuntu Server and Alternate ISO boot options, to quickly and automatically install an Ubuntu server.

That url (http://bit.ly/uquick), has been broken for a month or so since I've left Canonical and all my people.canonical.com/~kirkland/* pages have been purged.

I've actually set up a new bit.ly link at http://bit.ly/uinstall.  This is hosted on a Google Sites page that I own, so I'll be able to maintain it there permanently.  Note that the source is actually under bzr revision control under lp:bikeshed here.

So now, you can boot an Ubuntu Server ISO, press F6 for Other Options, and append the following::

local=en_US priority=critical url=http://bit.ly/uinstall

Enjoy!
