The question was locked when several of the vets [0scar and me mainly] were working on the infancy of the answer - it was 2 days of a hot mess as we went through the source code to find all the essential settings we usually forget after we have set them for our own machine distributions - if we even do our own distribution and not take one from another that was so kind to make it for the same machine.
