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



Been there and done that. Yes, flash-with-sound worked, PAE worked, but there were other issues with Edubuntu that drove me nuts. Thanks for the tip though.

OK that settles the question of whether to go 5.0 EL or not -- if I
have to struggle another nanosecond with getting flash to work with
64-bit I don't want anything to do with it. I'd rather run the risk of
being hacked and cracked, and that's the truth. Although I side with
the philosophical arguments, my teachers demand flash with sound as
their #1 priority, way above Office compatibility for example.

WRT disadvantages of Edubuntu -- the disadvantages for me anyhow were
numerous. Getting flash to work with 64-bit operating system proved a
futile exercise, and I ran into all kinds of little glitches along the
way. I won't go into details. That said it's got great curb appeal,
and I hope that their spring 2008 version has more promise because it
could be worth another look.

How about just running 32-bit?  You can run the HUGEMEM kernel with PAE
extensions if you need more than 4GB DRAM (assumes Intel CPU's for PAE,
of course).
