Fedora 9 Update: ldm-2.0.12-1.fc9

Fedora Update Notification
2008-09-05 10:53:01

Name        : ldm
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.0.12
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : https://code.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ldm-trunk
Summary     : LTSP Display Manager
Description :
LTSP Display Manager handles network logins for remote desktop sessions.

Update Information:

This update contains many bug fixes and additional features over the previous
version ltsp-5.1.15.    * NBI and ELF netboot (generally Etherboot) is now fully
supported. Images are generated automatically, and the new dhcpd.conf should
automatically serve the right image to a client.  You may need to install your
/opt/ltsp/i386 chroot fresh with ltsp-build-client and update your
/etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf from ltsp-server to benefit from this new support.  * NBD
swap by default actually works now!  (Except it is disabled if the server is
running from a Live image in order to conserve memory.)  * John Ellson fixed a
few bugs to get x86_64 clients installable and working.  Requires some
configuration but it should work now.  * Old kernels and images are safely
cleaned from the tftpboot directory if they are no longer installed in the
client chroots.  * (ADVANCED USERS: Most users don't really need this.)  NBD
root is now supported as an option.  Default is still NFS root. Update your
dhcpd.conf to the latest version from ltsp-server.  It contains example syntax
to switch your clients from NFS root to NBD root.  ltsp-update-image will
generate a NBD root image from /opt/ltsp/i386 and drop it into
/opt/ltsp/images/i386.img.  Note: This requires the patched mkinitrd also in the
k12linux-temporary repo to be installed in the client chroot.  This will go into
rawhide soon, and Fedora 9 updates in a few week later.  I really need to write
documentation for this on the Wiki.  You can still use this without the patched
mkinitrd but it will work with NFS root only.  * (ADVANCED USERS: Tech preview
status)  Working Local Apps support, requires openssh-server-5.1 on the ltsp-
server side, available in Fedora updates-testing.  I will write up some docs for
this on the Wiki soon.
