I've switched to using K12LTSP 5EL 32bit and really love it. It seems to
be a more stable than 6 was and I've had better luck with integration
into AD. Actually everything is working great except I'm having some
weird trouble with wine. I've got 5EL installed on my server at school
and on my pc at home, reinstalled twice now. But every time it's the
same, there is no text in wine. The menus, buttons, etc, are there, but
no text. I've checked for font packages but that hasn't seemed to help.
Should I ask the Wine list, or the CentOS list? I've always had great
luck here so I thought I'd ask you all first. I need it for a couple of
legacy windows apps hosted on a file server. They ran great on K12LTSP
6, but I like the release schedule better for EL. Also, I've got another
app that won't run under wine, and was considering using a virtual xp
setup. Any thoughts on a good way to do that? Or would it just be easier
to run a windows terminal server? Thanks.
