I made a 'LiveCD' on a 16 GB USB stick using this command after the GUIs didn't work and looking at some blog posts:

sudo dd if=SL-7.3-x86_64-2017-01-20-LiveCD.iso of=/dev/sdf

Debian doesn't like EPICS. Or our XY plots of beam spots...Sad!

No, not confused on that point. We just will not be testing OS versions at the 40m or running multiple OS's on our workstations. As I've said before, we will only move to so-called 'reference' systems once they've been in use for a long time.

Ubuntu16 is not to my knowledge used for any CDS system anywhere.  I'm not sure how you expect to have better support for that.  There are no pre-compiled packages of any kind available for Ubuntu16.  Good luck, you big smelly doofuses. Nyah, nyah, nyah.

K Thorne recommends that we use SL7.3 with the 'xfce' window manager instead of the Debian family of products, so we'll try it out on allegra and rossa to see how it works for us. Hopefully the LLO CDS team will be the tip of the spear on solving the usual software problems we have when we "~up" grade.
