Re: [K12OSN] Install packages from full Fedora 10

Now I am confused.  And getting frustrated.

I explained this before. 

I tried K12Linux (Fedora 10 with LTSP 5) and it is a bowderlized version of Fedora 10. It does not let you create network shares (samba) or anything much else because much of the necessary packages are missing. (or, are they? If so, point them out where they are? )

You mention K12LTSP 5.0EL.  It is said to be part of Fedora 9 but I cannot find it anywhere. 

I am not a Linux geek and I want to create a simple terminal server setup with the full packages from Fedora 10 and not some cut up shortened version of Fedora 10 that is called K12Linux/K12LTSP whatever.

I don't understand why LTSP 5 software cannot be found to be downloaded?  I don't understand why LTSP 5 can't be RPM'd into Fedora 10 or 12?  And all of you keep pointing me back to some K12Linux which I keep saying it does not contain the full version of Fedora 10? 

There's a big difference between the older verision of K12Linux (Fedora 6 LTSP 4) and your current K12Linux (Fedora 10 LTSP 5).   The older version is the full Fedora 6 with all the packages and the current version is not even half of the Fedora 10 package. 

Can anybody help me by explaining the genius thinking behind selling a K12Linux package whose elevator does not go all the way to the top or explain to me where to FIND a LTSP 5 package and download it and install it on a full packaged Fedora 10.

How about just using K12LTSP 5.0EL?  This one is the most stable and "just works" without problem.

Hello.  I don't have a network connection to the outside.   You are right, the fedora 10 DVD files are RPM not RAR.  My mistake.
Are you saying the LTSP 5 package is not part of the Fedora 10 full package and that I would have to access some online software repository for the LTSP 5 package?  I don't understand why I can't download the LTSP 5 package and install them.
Otherwise I would have to go back to Fedora 6 and LTSP 4 because that's the last full Fedora package there is.   I don't even understand the genius behind the act K12linux was deliberately bowderlized with barely the minimum Fedora 10 stuff.
Is there another Linux brand that offers BOTH the full package and LTSP 5?  ubuntu?  What's the download link?

   The software installer should go and get these for you
   automatically from the software repository (assuming you have a
   network connection). Yum is the software updating/installation
   tool. It can be run from the terminal as long as you have
   root(administrator) privileges. The software updater and installer
   GUI tools are frontends for Yum and the RPM packages it uses to
   install the software. I don't know where you got the RAR files from.
   The bolded instructions on the page describe the terminal commands
   to use. You will probably need to log as another user, open
   terminal and enter "su", followed by the root password. Then you
   can run those YUM commands.

       Thank you.  Where do I find the ltsp-server and the

       me the link?

       This explains how to get LTSP working on any version of Fedora
       10 or higher.
