Hi all. I have been configuring a dual Opteron system as the server and
ran up on some glitches in the Fl_TeacherTool setup (up to and including

On the instructions page, several libs are copied into the /opt/ltsp/..
space for the clients to use. I found that the line:

#cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /opt/ltsp/i386/lib/

will cause all of the vnc-related tools to fail on the 64-bit version. I
will be testing the 32-bit this weekend. I reverted back to my saved lib
(Good call on that! ) and noticed the lib sizes were tremendously

I still have not been able to see anything happen other than a password
box appear on the teacher and client machines when testing the Broadcast

One last note: The screen shots on the web site show client data of
user, host, MB and PIDS. But on v.34 I get IP address instead of host. 

I thought the Instructional Technology guy I was with today was going
start dancing when we launched firefox with the exact desired website
onto nearly 24 machines at once! There were 3 systems that the launch
did not happen on. Still investigating.

Very nice tool!
