Re: [K12OSN] Morley's Great K12LTSP labs - update



Terrel-
What vesion of Flash are you running on 5.0EL? I haven't wrestled with it for a while, but as I recall, Flash 9 was installed, but I could not get sound to work with it, even using the Pulse Audio trick from Revolution Linux.

Agreed, proprietary formats are bad. How many people recall email 20 years ago, where business cards had three or four email addresses on them, for Sprint, CompuServe, et al, because none of the systems talked to each other? Nowadays no one would even consider a closed email system. Audio and video need to be likewise.

That Flash issue also appears to depend on whether you're running 32-bit Firefox or 64-bit Firefox. I run 32-bit K12LTSP 4.2EL and 5.0EL, and so far, so good.

And *that*, folks, is why we need to avoid proprietary file formats. Right there.

Mostly it's plug & fly--excepting the Flash sound issues I've written about and have not been able to conquer. I've got it installed in a couple of sites where sound is not an issue, and it's working like a champ there.

The only thing I hate about the K12LTSP project(s) is the speed in which they are obsoleted. Just about that time I get around to upgrading, the
version I am comfortable with is already in obsolescence and no longer
supported. I was just getting ready to roll out FC6 K12LTSP and now I
hear it is obsoleted already.

It really makes me not want to mess with it anymore and I am a BIG FAN
of the K12LTSP project(s).

One of my reasons for going to it in the first place was the fact that
you plug it in and it works. But, it seems with every new version, there
are new kinks that you gotta work out or wait until the ones who know
how to fix them get them fixed, but by then, it is obsoloeted already
and it is no longer available. The upgrades aren't upgrades. They are
completely new installs with completely new sets of bugs and kinks. And
I am just a small-time user. . . My server at home that my family uses
is FC3. Still rock-solid and just works. I was going to FC6 as soon as
possible, but . . . I have several servers at work, also, and one is
running FC6 but I havent' touched it in a year. . .

Disheartened,

No need to be disheartened. Go with the EL flavor of K12LTSP!

The regular K12LTSP releases are based on Fedora Core and yes, Fedora Core has a very short life cycle. But there are also EL (Enterprise Linux) versions of K12LTSP, which are based on CentOS (which in turn is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux clone). The current version is K12LTSP 5EL, which is based on CentOS 5. CentOS has a supported lifetime of 7 years (compared to Fedora's ~1 year).
