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

This is also known as the eBox 2300. I have one, it works fine with K12LTSP including sound; I think I had to use the vesa driver for X. As has been mentioned before, the video is fine although not quite 'snappy'. But if you had a classroom of nothing but these, users wouldn't notice the difference. Considering the price and size, I think they're pretty nifty.

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:


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.

    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.
