Re: [K12OSN] Trouble with PXE Boot; Fedora 17



Radek,

Thanks for the note. Yes, I saw that note as well, but I also remember reading somewhere that LTSP works on fedora 17 (or there is hope for it). Plus, LTSP is in the fedora 17 repository, so I would have expected it should work. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons I cannot use CentOS. 

If you provide the centos version of ltsp-server-tweaks and can send me the directory where vmlinuz.ltsp resides (is it a link to something else?) that might be a good start.

I hope I can get this thing working soon!

Thanks

adrin
