[K12OSN] Few observations with ltsp-server 5.9 | Where I can find old ltsp-server 5.1 repository



Hi,

Owing to help Joshua (many thanks again) I installed new LTSP K12 on my
server, and I have few observation with it. I will try to do with this
something later, but today my fresh views are as follow.

Let me explain that my old thin clients are very old (the first one:
Pentium III 1000 MHz, 512 MB of memory, GeForce 7300; the second one:
notebook Compaq nc 8230, 2,4 GHz processor, 2 GB of memory, ATI graphic
card), ltsp-server 5.9 and LTSP client epel-6-i386. Both my old clients
cooperated with LTSP 5.1 very good.

Views:

1. Notebook Compacq nc8230 starts booting, but after starting loading
image from TFTP service (I can see information on my screen) I can see
black screen only.

2. Pentium III - boots, I can work with the client, but:
   - maximum resolution which I cant reach on my monitor (Samsung
SyncMaster T260HD) is 1680x1050, while with LTSP 5.1 I reached 1900x1200;
   - is very slow and watching movies is not acceptable.

I can add, that one my thin client with AMD K6 III 400 MHz, 256 MB of
memory, and GeFforce 5xxx graphic card with ltsp-server 5.1 worked fine,
including movies. I tested LTSP 5.1 with thnin client Pentium 200 MMX, 128
MB of memory, and GeForce 440 and I can say, that this thin client works
with LTSP 5.1 comparable to thin client Pentium III with LTSP 5.9 - not
acceptable. Thin client Pentium 200 MMX was fine with LTSP 4.2.

I will check later LTSP 5.9 with another thin client with Pentium 4 and 1
GB of memory.

But I have old thin clients, which I would like to use now too.

So my question is:

Does anywhere LTSP 5.1 repository exist, which I can use to use my old
think client (let's forget about Pentium 200 MMX, but Pentium III as a thin
client - why not?)?


Best regards,
Radek
