Not-so-lucid Lynx?: Ubuntu 10.04 not ready for ADMIRAL

We recently tried to update our ADMIRAL system configuration to use Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) rather than 9.10 (Karmic Koala). It has been our plan to base ADMIRAL on a version of Ubuntu designated for Long Term Support (LTS), and 10.04 is the most recent such system.

Unfortunately, we have run into a number of problems that mean we shall stick with 9.10, which has been performing very well, for the time being.  At the heart of these problems is the vmbuilder package we use to generate ADMIRAL system images.

Ongoing notes about the problems encountered can be seen here
