Q: How to provision software across multiple laptops

mrKelleyI've got a bunch of laptops for my classroom and I'm using Ubuntu. I want to be able to add/update/remove software across them as easily as possible and I'm not sure how to go about it. I was thinking of editing the /etc/profile file on each machine to curl pipe sh a script that I would host on...

Anyone here?
5:23 AM
I am here.
Ubuntu boots to a black screen with a blinking cursor for me :(
Live cd seems to be working :/
The reinstall option is grayed out. Why would that be?
5:45 AM
@Braiam Thanks. Shog remembered to ping me elsewhere too, so all cool. Guess I have a writeup to do tomorrow.
who has been messing with the EOL notice? >:D it changed again :D
@Rinzwind winks
You know that you can see in the message history right?
@Seth yes, but that will not stop me complaining >:D
@Qwertieϟ what is the "reinstall option"?
@Rinzwind The one that doesn't wipe the drive
what is now on the hard disc?
5:52 AM
@Rinzwind 14.04 but it is broken
6:16 AM
@Qwertieϟ how broken? the OS? or the hardware so it seems it is the OS?
@Rinzwind OS, I think I messed up the nvidia drivers
I'm copying the home folder to another drive and I'm going to try to wipe and install
a bit more info would help :-)
did you get the notice where it states it goes into low graph mode?
@Rinzwind ?, I was watching a show when suddenly the video froze. Nothing I did had any effect on the screen so I restarted and then some text quickly flashed on the screen (somthing about "failed") and there was just a black screen with a blinking cursor
I managed to get into safe mode but couldn't fix it
hmmm that sounds more problematic.... are you sure nothing died?
@Rinzwind The hardware seems ok. Its working fine on a live cd
6:34 AM
ok :P seems weird though :+)
mind you: if the hdd is dead the live dvd probably will still work :D But since you are copying already that seems not to be the case :P
6:49 AM
It worked :D

9:27 AM
@Rinzwind I have to occasionally remind myself that I don't want a cigarette... But it's not a craving, it's just a situational thing. I still like the smell of cigarettes.

Q: From when it is possible to answer to a closed question?

Radu RădeanuAs far as I know if a question will be closed and in the same time someone write an answer, then a message will appear to that person telling him that he can't answer anymore and everything what he wrote was in vain. But (now I see first time) it seems that things are not really so:
