[K12OSN] Re: Rsync from K12ltsp: iso versus files in directories

1.Something weird happened when I tried yum update. It started downloading 127 files mostly with fc5 in the name.

2. How can I set it up so that the yum first looks for the files in my http directory so I only have to download files once. Using this method how can I add the latest updates to this directory and save those files for any future installations?

Every time I install I learn more about how the system works which is good. At the same time I want to make it as easy as possible for anyone else to pick up and use the system.

Thanks in advance.

I think I made a mistake. Instead of downloading the iso files I downloaded the /i386 directory of k12ltsp6
I was able to install from these files using PXE boot with http install.

The trouble is ltsp didn't work out of the box as it used to. I had to use ltspadmin (For the first tiem ever!)
At first I thought it was because I changed the ip address of the server from to but after installing again I found it was because the needed services were not running like tftp, dhcpd, xdmcp, etc.
I have got it running now using ltspadmin but I am afraid I might have missed some of Erics special tricks.
Should I download the isos and start again. Or is there some way to fix the situation. I want to install again soon (reinstalling over my current k12ltsp5 server to set up loadbearing arrangement.) I would rather it worked out of the box. Who knows someone else might need to take over running the computer system here and I want to keep everything as simple as possible.
