When I find out that Kiwi-LTSP 0.5.0 packages were out I just thought NAAH another update. Then I thought again and decided gave it a testdrive and WOOT it worked like a charm. Never been better! I get everything working from the box. All I needed was add my Xorg driver (openChrome) and on extra-package dir and with the latest changes manually editing config.xml is not required anymore. add the space separated list of packages to LTSP_LOCALAPPS=”” in /etc/sysconfig/kiwi-ltsp and run kiwi-ltsp-setup -s. ( http://en.opensuse.org/LTSP/Localapps#Adding_application_into_the_image_to_run_as_localapps ). I was running fully working LTSP thinclient enviroment.
To try it out of the box follow wiki help here and then install at least there packages. edit your /etc/sysconfig/kiwi-ltsp to fit and run kiwi-ltsp-setup (See correct value what you need):
- kiwi-ltsp-bootimages (Kernel)
- kiwi-ltsp-prebuilt (LTSP image)
Biggest happiness is on localapps they work. I could get every X app pop to my screen from thinclient. Why is this so needed.
- When user goes Youtube. Flash player works as expected. Full speed
- There is some apps that should be runned on client (Develoment/Serialport)
- Playing video (See 1)
Sound is working with pulseaudio (ESD in some apps). Device mounting works as expected. Only think I can complaing is ugly LTSP start screen on LDM (I should commit another artwork!). Some other problem I should exam is that it creates working initrd but it’s size is 41mb which is HUGE! because original is something like 21mb
This was quick peek. I write more when I get really on this new season of LTSP.
