Please test the latest versions of these packages.  It should maintain 
all previous features for existing users, but it adds a few exciting new 
features and capabilities like:

* It is now possible to set a non-GNOME default desktop session for all 
new users.  lts.conf now contains 
LDM_GLOBAL_DMRC=/etc/ltsp/ldm-global-dmrc, or you must add it manually 
if you have upgraded from a previous version.  You can edit that file to 
specify a particular non-GNOME desktop session or language.  A few 
examples are included commented out.

* If the user selects a desktop session or language, it now asks if they 
want to save that choice for future logins.  It is saved to ~/.dmrc in 
the user's home directory.  Delete that file if you want the user to 
fall back to the LDM_GLOBAL_DMRC defaults.

* All of the X_* lts.conf options should now be supported now, although 
this functionality is less proven at the moment.

Please report back if you have tried these updated packages.  I want to 
hear a few "IT WORKS" reports on both F-9 and F-10 before pushing to 

ldm installs into client
ltsp-client installs into client
ldminfod installs into server
ltsp-server installs into server
