Re: [K12OSN] Is K12Linux el6 actively maintained?



I am not sure that I understand your question the best. 
K12Linux offers thin client image based on CentOS (previously on Scientific Linux 6.1 and few years ago on Fedora 14 and 11, 10, 9). So thin client on boot stage downloads Scientific Linux or CentOS or Fedora OS from the server  (Scientific Linux or Fedora OS - if somebody has older version of theses images and properly configured LTSP server is).
But which environment the user uses - it is separated matter. Owing to LDM mechanism and protocols we can offer user different environment: Fedora, CentOS, SUSE, Windows and others.

So, my quite new thin clients (i686) use Scientific Linux image (OS), sometimes CentOS (x86_64), older (i586) - Fedora 11. Owing to theses images I reached whole expected functionality including multimedia, local devices (DVD-RW with write option too).

Hi Radek,

That is very interesting.

Are you using CentOS instead of Fedora for the desktop OS that is
distributed to the thin clients?

I couldn't compare to Ubuntu, but my installations on CentOS 6.5 x86_64 (upgraded from CentOS 6.3 -> 6.4 -> 6.5 and from LTSP 5.2 to 5.4) work fine and I can confirm there are stable including both cooperation: with Linux and Windows.
