I got a lot done today, but didn't get to packaging the vnc X11
module for ltsp.

I'm not overly-optimistic that I'm going to get another big enough chunk
of time in the next week to figure this out.

If someone wants some fame and glory, here are a couple of things that
need to be done that would help Robert out with fl_TeacherTool...

1) Figure out how to build the vnc X11 extension module within the LBE.

    The source code and build instructions are included in the vnc src.rpm.
    (the vnc-server package sticks this in
     /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/vnc.so, the LTSP version would be

2) There might be a missing library as well, if that is the case it will
    need to be built in the LBE as well.

3) Once the LBE packages are created, we then need to figure out how to
    make an rpm of 'em.
