Today was no end of hassle as I tried to get SMB shares mounted — the problem here seems to be that it needs IP numbers; then I tried to get latex installed — tetex is broken, as you need to put the main directory in TEXINPUTS, TeXLive just doesn’t install; and finally a recurring problem with vmware server which I think I have solved (removing vmware player services), but won’t know till the reboot. Hmmm.
