I have a client, who is using an older version of the LTSP on CentOS6. They are having some issues, and I want to be able to do a software update so they're at the latest version of everything to see if that solves the problem.  I thought I could setup a test system in my office, and try it first before I do it for real on site.  However, getting a fresh CentOS6 with LTSP turns out to be harder than I thought.

I feel a bit sad that LTSP has slowly died - it is an excellent solution for small networks.  My client has a relatively powerful server, and about 6 diskless workstations (old Pentium 4 machines), and it's worked very well for them.  

I think the only viable option for my client is to switch to a windows server solution, but I can already hear the $$$ - none of the workstations will run in that new environment, so it's going to cost a lot upgrade.


I told my wife she was drawing her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised.
