    Exclamation Break Ubuntu!

    Hey everybody,

    I'm in search of ways to break Ubuntu. Why? Practice! I'm setting up a simulation lab using virtual machines and I'm in need of ways to break Ubuntu. Where can I go to find some? I was thinking to do some GRUB errors because I remember when first setting up Ubuntu, I got those errors. I need to recreate them, but I don't know how. Maybe a Black Screen of Death too. Any suggestions is appreciated! Need as much practice as I can get!

    Use a hammer, or a gun if you are in the U.S. Guarantee to work.

    But seriously + 1 to joining the Ubuntu+1 forum, you can break things to your heart's delight and put the observations to good use.

    If you want to break Ubuntu, like any other distro, start removing random packages.

    Yup. That and changing permissions on random files. Oh, and screw with config files randomly.

    I was specifically wondering how to recreate the "Grub Rescue" error. Can anyone guide me?
