Re: [K12OSN] Update on Morley's K12LTSP situation

Hi Nick, well I have to say it's not easy at all.

I wrote my own wiki entry. The page you named was none too helpful, but at
least it gave me the idea of trying pulseaudio. I hope that my own entry
is at least a little better, but I haven't had any feedback on it and I
can't yet say whether it has any errors. It uses yum instead of the rpm
stuff. You might have to enable additional repositories, I've forgotten.


This works for K12LTSP 6.0 64-bit, but I would think you could adapt the
bottom half for 32-bit and ignore the top half.

Please let me know if it works for you. It's pretty straightforward once
you figure it out (or so I seem to recall). But I went through misery
trying many, many things that didn't work. Why it isn't a simple,
functional default is beyond me.... the web as a multimedia tool depends
on Flash with Sound. Or am I completely confused??

The pleasure I felt when I first successfully fired up a noisy Google
video cannot be described.
