Made an attempt at using my maverick script to build the new machine (beet) but there were so many changes (package dependencies, config deprecations etc.) that I gave up and started on an oneiric builder - A LOT HAS CHANGED under the hood!
Spent a few days working on that and deployed beet with the new HCMC oneiric build. It seems OK, but still requires a few tweaks after a person logs in. I have a script on the desktop that will set things up and delete itself when done. One apparent bug that I'm tracking down: one cannot shut the machine down from the login screen. I think it's a lightdm problem at this point.
I'm continuing work on the oneiric build in preparation for pangolin as I intend to upgrade the lab to pangolin once it lands.
