Re: [K12OSN] Is This A Usable Thin Client For LTSP?



I've tested this $100 computer as a thin client with K12LTSP and it works fine one you set it to boot from the NIC:

http://www.ewayco.com/51-embedded-systems-100-PC-mini-ITX-low-cost/100-tu-low-cost-pc-thin-client-embedded-system.html

It comes with a 200 MHz CPU and 128 MB RAM.  The shared video memory can be set to a number of settings.  8 or 16 MB works fine.  I have tested the sound, so I can't say whether it works or not with K12LTSP.

A. Getting it off may not be possible
B. Getting a PXE boot capability may be impossible
C. Installing a Linux flash OS may not be possible

I would not recommend this device unless you just want to get one and do
some tinkering to convert it into an LTSP compatible device.
