Re: [K12OSN] Adding k12linux EL to existing centos install

I don't think K12Linux (which is LTSP 5 on top of Fedora 10 or 11 at this point) will run on Centos currently. Centos 5 is a respin of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5; I know Warren and some other RH folks were working on it at one point, but I think they concluded there were too many missing pieces, although I forget the particulars. RHEL is anticipated to arrive sometime in the first half of 2010, with Centos 6 presumably following shortly after, although RH has not made any announcements to such a schedule. These are likely to have proper support for LTSP 5.

So, today your choices are either run K12LTSP-EL which is LTSP 4.2 on Centos 5, or K12Linux which is LTSP 5 on Fedora 10 (or there's a beta on Fedora 11). The former is solid, if a bit weak in client sound, and works well with lower end client hardware. The latter is better if you have newer client hardware, e.g., sound just works, newer video chipsets just work, etc.

I have no dvd drive, and no flash drive over 4gb, so I thought I could install Centos and install a package from there. Is this possible? If not, how should I get K12linux EL installed? Thanks.
