Workaround LWP install

The unattended installation of the LWP does not work with the new hardware being supplied by CentralPoint. As a temporary workaround here are instructions for doing the installation "attended":

During the installation make sure the root partition (/ = root) is at least 120GB and when asked for "Your computer's name:" use a unique identifier... don't use the same computer name if you're installing several PC's.

When the installation is done and Ubuntu starts for the first time, do not login right away, but do the following:

CTRL+ALT+F2

Login with the account you've created during the installation:

sudo -i
sed -i.bak 's/home/admin/' /etc/passwd
mv /home /admin
exit
exit #Yes, again!

Login again with the account you've created during the installation:

sudo -i
apt install curl
curl -s http://lwp130.lwp.rug.nl/menudo/heiko/puppet | /bin/bash #(password: iamsure)
Choose "lightdm"
Choose "Internet Site"
Leave empty, just hit Enter

Now wait for the configuration to finish, this will take 30-45 minutes.
