Important Notes

Black Lab Linux 64 bit can boot on either UEFI or BIOS devices (we recommend turning off secure-boot if not necessary)

Black Lab Linux 32 bit can boot only on BIOS devices

Some NVIDIA GeForce cards don't work well with the open-source driver provided by the Black Lab Linux kernel. If Black Lab Linux freezes during boot, use the "nomodeset" boot option in grub.

Some Virtual Machine setups will not allow boot into Live mode, if this occurs boot into the direct installer from the boot menu.

Upgrade from 7.0.x

Open a terminal and type the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Download

You can download Black Lab Linux 7.6 from Ibiblio.org
