Google your problem first. Check the Wiki. Read the existing threads. It's okay to "hijack" an existing thread, yes! If your problem is not yet covered, open a new thread. To get the quickest possible help, mention the exact release codename in your post (uname -a is a good idea, too). Due to the lack of crystal balls, attach the output of lspci -nnk if you encounter hardware problems.

Older BBQ spins

I put this statement also into the support section to avoid that users download older or better said, *outdated* spins.

The recommended period between ISO birthday and first upgrade should be less than 3 months. Everything else, check the Upgrade Warnings section back, and don't waste your time asking anything else, because we don't know it.

In other words. If you are new to the grill, grab one of the *recent* releases. If you already use older spins, then you can upgrade as usual, always having an eye on upgrade warnings.

Do not bother us with breakages if you try to install a very old BBQ ISO. LinuxBBQ is a DIY distro, we do not support months old upgrade paths.

Check always the release notes before downloading blindly a LinuxBBQ ISO.
