[K12OSN] ltsp on MIPS and ARM architecture

  Hello Terrell,

Thanks for the suggestion regarding Atom or other ULV processors, but I 
think this is the easy way out and circumvents what could be a very 
meaningful development in LTSP.  We can get about 3-4 arm or mips thin 
clients for the price of one atom based client.  Moreover, I am trying 
to do this as way to redress the apparent technology gap here in the 
developing world.  It should be pretty easy to build a thin client image 
for ARM (particularly as linux already runs on ARM).  I understand that 
MIPS has some support, but it is not as good as ARM.

Anyway, I was actually hoping to find if anyone knew if there was work 
under way to get LTSP working on these architectures.  Does anyone else 
have any ideas?  I suppose I could start by compiling my own, but I 
would like to see this make it into the standard development chain.
