Since there are major differences between LTSP4 and 5 I presume this
isn't an option.
I installed iTalc at one point but it started popping up error dialogs
for all users so I just removed it. It really isn't made for thin
client environments, and it is unclear if it works well over low
bandwidth connections (which I need). While it appears it is possible
to get it working there are no Fedora instructions so it looks like an
uphill battle. Since all I need is remote desktop it is overkill anyway.
Is what I am trying to do impossible with standard tools (ie: VNC)? If
I could figure out where the X server/client are running I expect I
should be able to get x11vnc working. However, I have not seen any
documentation about how X works in LTSP5 so this is a black box for me.
Any tips would be appreciated.
