I upgraded LTSP5 using yum yesterday, and now my thin client won't boot.

The boot process proceeds to the message

Adding udev persistent rules

and then the following message appears:

SCREEN_01 contains a screen script ldm Please change to another screen

After this message appears, I can't change screens with ctrl-alt-F1 -

No further messages appear, and the thin client hangs. I can get it
to start a reboot with ctrl-alt-del, but it seems to get frozen and
will not even finish halting the system.

My /etc/lts.conf file is empty, as is the lts.conf in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc,
so no screens are being set up there. It seems likely that something
was changed in the recent update that causes this error.

Server: laptop running Fedora9 and LTSP5
Terminal: Diskless Workstations 1420 PXE
