Good news.
Here is an i386 RPM for F9 or F10 prepared by Barry Cisna. Incredibly,
it also takes care of the entire installation process except for
adding persons who will run Fl_TeacherTool to the teachers group. I
have *not* tested this RPM so please report any problems to this list.


Thank You Barry Cisna!!

This rpm is for the k12linux build of FCx. It is built from the
fl_teachertool source developed by Robert Arkiletian. The only systems
tested on at present are FC9 , FC10 32-bit and 32-bit smp kernels. It
should work on FC11,possibly. Everything is done by the rpm to run
Fl_TeacherTool,other than each user allowed to run fl_teachertool
needs to be added to the 'teachers' group that this rpm creates.
