Re: [K12OSN] graphics problems w/ multiple SCREENs



I just bought a new LTSP Term 1000 PXE and I'm having the same problem. 
Has anybody else seen this happen?  I thought it might have been due to
my older hardware, but now I'm seeing the problem on a brand-new thin
client. 

The issue occurs when using either the sis or the vesa driver.

This is really screwing up my LTSP implementation here.  My users need
to toggle back and forth between the Linux and Windows terminal servers.

I ran ltspadmin to see if all my components are up to date, and
everything is except it says that ltsp_kernel is not installed.  This
can't be right, I don't think, since I am successfully running thin clients.

Any ideas would be appreciated.  I'm running K12LTSP 5.0EL, fully
updated from a beta version.
