Ubuntu FTW

The Ubuntu system image is almost ready, it by default installs:

  • Minimal base system
  • Removes OpenOffice (for some reason this is considered minimal even without a desktop environment)
  • gcc/g++
  • rdflib
  • pyRdfa
  • MFS
  • Boost

Unfortunately the network switch linking the cluster seems to be on its last legs. Under load it resets frequently, taking the cluster down for several minutes at a time – very annoying!
