[K12OSN] flushing out my backlog... testing for version 4.1.1, followed by 3.2.0, then a 4.2.0 test build

I've worked really hard over the last week or two to get caught back up
after the standard start-of-school crunch.

I'm close to having K12LTSP 4.1.1 ready to go, mostly need to do some
more testing and hopefully include the new version of TuxPaint that Bill
keeps promising ;-)

If you want to help with the testing of the updated 4.1.x packages, they
are available here:


There are major updates to mindi, mondo, mozilla, qcad, scribus, and 
squidGuard that need as much testing as possible.

If there are any other major bugs or updates I've missed, please let
me know...

If you really want the full test-build ISOs (not production quality!),
they are here:

   rsync -Pav k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us::testing/4.1.1/ .

Assuming all goes well, I'll try to have 4.1.1 ready by Monday.

I'm also fairly close to having a K12LTSP 3.2.0 beta available. I have
been investigating moving from WhiteBox to Centos. Centos seems to be
doing a better job at keeping in sync with RHEL, which is important to
me since I'm working on RHEL boxes at work...

I believe I have all of the critical installer bugs squashed. What I
need to do now is finish off 4.1.1 & then back-port the packages to
the 3.2.0 build. This is mostly done.

Finally, in my copious spare time I have installed Fedora Core 3 test 2
on my laptop and have been keeping in sync with rawhide. All of the
tricky installer code ported over from FC2 without modification, that is
really good news ;-).  There are a couple show-stopping NFS bugs that
are known/being worked on, once this is fixed I'll probably put out a
set of K12LTSP 4.2.0 test ISOs for you all to start playing with. The
final FC3 release is currently slated for November 1st.
