Re: [K12OSN] New server suggestions



How many accounts will you have on it :-| ...  We're still chasing a problem with 1000+ accounts causing login slowdowns that doen't happen in K12LTSP/CentOS 5.  I just put K12Linux on a T105 for a 1:1 classroom server, and since I won't have that many accounts, and assuming I can solve the video issue with my IBM R31 Thinkpads, I'm planning to use K12Linux.  I did have to use Andrew's SWCursor trick on LTS.CONF to get the mouse working on the HP thin clients however. (Thanks Andrew!)  It was also a bit of a pain that I had to manually install OpenOffice (which was included in K12LTSP) but I understand the rationale.

Subject: [K12OSN] New server suggestions

Greetings from El Paso, TX
One of the schools I support is receiving a Dell Power Edge T105 server (2.9GHz Athlon Dual Core 5600B Processor, 2GB DDR2, 250GB SATA Storage, Intel Dual 1GB NIC) and I would like to hear what the experts suggest should be the OS I should install on it. It will serve 10 Symbio-Technologies SYM 1112 diskless thin clients. My inclination is to use a reliable K12ltsp 5.0 install, but I am tempted to use 6.o. Any words of wisdom you may have?
