Test of Ubuntu 18.04 on Linux login server lilo6

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 18.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server lilo6.science.ru.nl. In a few months it will replace the five year old login server lilo4. The name lilo, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old lilo5 to the new lilo6. The new lilo6 is a Dell PowerEdge R440 with 2 Xeon Silver 4110 CPU @2.10GHz 8-core processors and 64GB RAM. Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 32 processors. For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server, see the section about our loginservers. Please report all problems with this new version of Ubuntu Linux.
