[K12OSN] Testing Needed: ltsp-5.1.38 and ldm-2.0.23



http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/ltsp/
http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/ldm/
http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/ltspfs/

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:

* Oops, yesterday's ldm-2.0.22 broke LDM_DIRECTX=true which is the default config for Fedora. This has been fixed.

* LOCAL_APPS_WHITELIST now makes it possible to limit commands you can run as a local app. Almost nobody needs this option, but it is at least possible now.

* 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
updates.

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