RE: [K12OSN] State of Centos Based k12ltsp



I'm using it and so far I'm pretty happy with it.  I started with TEST1,
and there was a bug that prevented local devices from working.  That's
been fixed.  

My only other problem has been that numlock was not on by default, and
there was no numlockx package available.  I tried to compile numlockx
from source, but failed.  I eventually tried an rpm made for fedora 6
and that worked.  

I only have a handful of users right now, with fairly basic needs
(office stuff).  I haven't used any multimedia.

Subject: [K12OSN] State of Centos Based k12ltsp

I've about to setup a k12ltsp box to have play with but I'd like to use
the version based on CentOS to keep in line with all out other servers.
Looking on

ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP/5.0.0-EL-32bit/iso

It would appear that these are based on CentOS 5 but file names of

  K12LTSP-5.0.0EL-32bit-TEST4-disc1.iso

worry me slightly, well the TEST4 bit actually :-)

Is it OK to install these on a server that might be used in anger by
students or would it be better to stick with the older version ??

Thanks
