  • Having so many problems with this release, from networking to trouble with Nouveau drivers.  It wouldn't write the network parameters - not even loopback came up with an address. Worked round that by manually configuring networking, but now stuck with rabbitmq seemingly freezing on startup and preventing full start up.

    I've tried adding entries for " alienvault" etc to hosts as this seems to be a commonly reported solution but it's just stick on rabbitmq startup.  Any ideas?  Why are the fundamentals so broken in these recent ISOs ?
