RE: [K12OSN] LTSP Client Configuration Program?



http://www.webmin.com/

and it works...
I dl'd it last week onto k12ltsp 4.0 and it worked fine...
of course you must have installed some other things for some of the
modules to work..
but that will be self-evident when you attempt to utilize those modules.

Hello Immanuel!
Where is this webmin module you're talking about?! I'm aware of only 
one, lightly discussed here with the caveat that it doesn't work.
http://www.k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/index.php/Software%3AWebmin

Do you have other info!? If yes, please share!
thanks
Dennis
