LTSP 5 Status

Integrating LTSP into a Linux distribution is not an easy job. It requires intimate knowledge of how LTSP works, and how the specific distro works. Here's the list of Linux vendors that are current providing, or plan to provide LTSP (NB: a bit dated, Fedora/Slackware status seems inadequate):

Vendor Status Comments
ALT Linux Good ALTSP5 is production quality since 2008, busy with merging upstream
Debian - Lenny Excellent Vagrantc worked closely with the Ubuntu team to provide a very robust implementation of LTSP for Debian
Debian - Etch Good Works but missing some features
Fedora Good Works now in in Fedora 9
Gentoo preliminary Work is underway, and a preliminary version is available on Gentoo bug #177580
Slackware not supported Work is being done to provide LTSP-5 in Slackware 10 and 11, community support
openSUSE Excellent Feature par with Ubuntu/Debian implementation, see http://en.opensuse.org/LTSP for more information
Ubuntu - 6.10 (Edgy) Excellent The Ubuntu team did most of the heavy lifting, to get LTSP to a point where it could be integrated.
Ubuntu - 6.06 (Dapper) Good The LTSP in dapper works well, but doesn't support some features and some are difficult to configure.
Mandriva - 2009.1 preliminary Implementation in Mandriva 2009.1 (released April 2009) is derived from Fedora. Currently ltsp-build-client is broken.
