I am about to receive an amd64 machine. I am planning on running it for 
a few months as a workstation, then replace the current K12LTSP box with 
the amd64.

I know that there isn't a 64-bit distribution of K12LTSP, but I remember 
Eric H. saying he had it running on a few of his machines.

Where do I look for the list of packages to install manually on top of a 
64-bit Fedora Core 3 install? I would like to compile the packages for 
myself  and then I can upload them somewhere, if that's of use to 
anyone. I suppose in the end I would like to propose that we 
(collectively) maintain a set of amd64 packages for use. If there was 
enough interest, we could probably even set it up as a yum/apt 
repository so installation of k12LTSP/64 would be as simple as 
installing FC/64 followed by adding a line to yum.conf and doing a yum 
install k12ltsp.

Ok, I admit it, there's a lot of work to achieve the dream, but I am 
willing to do my part to get my own equipment up and running. Anyone 
else interested in K12LTSP on the amd64 platform?

Angus Carr.
