RE: [K12OSN] Fedora 9 Live LTSP Server, Beta 1



Warren, I did download the Fedora 9 Live LTSP Server, Beta 1 to play around
with. I will get you some feedback as soon as I get a breath from getting
the school going for this year. 

I spent a great deal of time working on the Edubuntu LTSP over the last one
and a half years and was running it up through release 7.10. However, with
the new 8.04 release it is just too buggy especially around networking. I
finally gave up in frustration due to limited response and very confusing
documentation. 

I am now on the K12LTSP RHEL5 version, which has some issues with the 64 bit
CD 8 and the 64 bit DVD ISO's. Since the 64 bit has ISO problems I am
rolling out the 32 bit K12LTSP RHEL5 version for the school labs as I have
to have them up and working ASAP. In the interim I will be trying to get the
64 bit version resolved as I need long term support for the schools as I do
this work for them for free. I actually spend anywhere from 8 to 16 hours
per week working on their computer systems, network, and phone system.

I should be able to get some lab time over the next week to play with Fedora
9 LTSP. 

Thanks

Charlie

Are people giving this a try?

This is THE successor of K12LTSP so I really expect people to try it and 
give me feedback.  Even "Hey it works great!" is more helpful than 
silence.  I am also interested in suggestions to improve the README file 
that the user is faced with.

Since releasing Beta 1, I fixed a pile of bugs and added some missing 
features like making Etherboot clients boot automatically.  Due to the 
many fixes there will be a Beta 2 image soon before the planned release 
candidate.
