The highlights of new packages:
– Uses clicfs for NBD/AOE root image. clicfs: Compressed Loop Image Container is a file system created by Stephan Kulow. So we do not need squashfs and aufs anymore for LTSP images. Clicfs gives better compression, image size is about 10% smaller than same image created using squashfs.
– Kernel 2.6.30
– New look by Samyak Bhuta
– New xorg, CONFIGURE_X in lts.conf no longer necessary
The packages are available in server:ltsp repository.
Follow these instructions to test the development packages on already configured LTSP server:
