Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP 4.2.0 officially released



Eric,

I had K12LTSP 4.1.1 (FC2 based) working on my AMD Athlon, but there's something screwy with 4.2. Just as some high level troubleshooting, I thought I'd try FC3 on the same box and it loads without problems.

It has trouble pulling dhcp and it locks up at the NTP server query at boot, but didn't get too much more detail than that. Interested in hearing if others encounter similar problems. If so, I'd very much appreciate a copy of your post to my personal email address as well, thanks all.

Miss my java and flash plugin wizards, can I get them for FC3?

Cheers and Happy New Years,

Brian

Release Notes for K12LTSP 4.2.0
============================================================================



What's new:


* K12LTSP 4.2.0 is based on Fedora Core 3. Be sure to read the FC3
  release notes at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc3/x86/

* The installer media check has been turned off by default. This check
  does not work if the ISO were burned on a 2.6.x kernel without
  being "padded" (i.e. the "-pad" option in cdrecord). If you want to
  run the media check, you may still do so by specifying the following
  at the CD boot prompt:

linux mediacheck

* K12LTSP "meta" packages are now included. These are "empty" packages
that contain dependancies for all of the packages in a particular
group. This makes it easy to install a group of packages by
specifying only the meta package. For example "yum install k12ltsp-core"
would install off the core K12LTSP packages. Meta packages included
are:
k12ltsp-core
k12ltsp-education
k12ltsp-education-devel
k12ltsp-extras
k12ltsp-scripts
k12ltsp-utils



* Tuxpaint now has a graphical configuration utility: tuxpaint-config


* The up2date and yum packages no longer need to be modified
  to included the K12LTSP repository information. These config
  files are now in the fedora-release and k12ltsp-release
  packages

* The up2date and yum repositories are now mirrored at the
  University of Tennessee at Knoxville

* The default web browser has changed from Mozilla to Firefox.
  Firefox as been modified to use the K12LTSP bookmarks.

* The LTSP Build Environment (ltsp_i386-lbe) is no longer
  included on the install CDs in order to free up some space.
  Use apt, up2date, or yum if you wish to install it.
