The source code and all the files necessary to install LinuxMCE are available for download on various mirrors. This page provides instructions for downloads.

Note
Since this wiki page is editable we can not keep the md5sums here without the risk of tampering. To ensure you have the right one, verify it on the front page of the release announcement.
It is a good idea to use md5sum and the checksums to verify your download is not corrupted.


Please use the Bit Torrent downloads wherever possible, to ensure a clean, uncorrupted download, and then leave it seeding as long as possible. Important: Always burn the DVDs at the slowest possible speed your drive supports ... this is critical! Faster speeds regularly cause corruptions on the burn which will be fatal to your install.


What version to choose?

The current preferred installation candidate is LinuxMCE 1404.
While the current preferred installation candidate is still being worked on and may have some known issues, it generally works better with newer hardware and works at least as well as previous versions. The versions older than LinuxMCE 1404 are stable but no longer under development.

The latest version under development is LimuxMCE 1604, and the up to date snapshot DVDs are linked in the download locations.

Download locations

You can download from one of the mirrors or torrents here.

The latest releases are always under IPTP Release dir.

Follow the steps laid out on the install page, and be sure to check out the Snapshot overview before downloading the latest snapshot DVDs.
