Hello everyone,
	It's been too long since I've checked the list. I've had a lot
of "fun" working with our LTSP lab. I finally resolved my issue with
scholastic software. Even though I was able to get the older version
working in the lab, it came down to the fact that the database wasn't
stable. According to scholastic, "It is self-corrupting, two minutes
after running the maintenance you WILL have errors in it again." So we
upgraded to the new Enterprise Edition", which runs on a MySql database,
using a flash player as a browser on the client to access the apps on
the server. It uses Jboss as the appliation server. Funny how almost all
of the software used open source, good side though, wine opens the
executable to run any of the apps and uses native flash player, java,
adobe, etc. So there is one problem solved. Unfortunately I'm still
having a problem with a network drive that the school uses for both a
digital dropbox and a basic application server for apps like microtype
and geometer sketchpad. No on seems to have write access to the mounted
drive and that is the main problem. It seems like it shouldn't be a hard
thing to figure out, but I haven't had as much time to spend on it as I
need to. Where should I start looking to fix this aside from chmod,
because that doesn't seem to do it. If you need more info let me know,
I'm hoping to get it fixed by Monday, otherwise I may be forced into a
Microsoft Terminal setup, and that would kill me.
