have done my usual first cut tests. Only issue I found was that reboot and
poweroff are still not working from the icewm menus.
bus => agpgart, pcmcia, apm
network => 8139too, forcedeth, sis900
sound => via82cxxx_audio
storage => cdrom, ext2, ext3, supermount, smbfs sound => sound_nasd video =>
xorg6vnc, xorg-nv, xorg-r128, xorg-sis, xorg-trident keymaps =>
keymaps-en_us packages => vncviewer, xnest, xterm, ssh, nx, firefox, flash,
www utils => emelfm, LinNeighborhood, e3 wm => icewm, xtdesk
Have tested nx against my local FreeNX server (suse 9.1, KDE & using my own
ssh keys - not the nomachine generic ones).
Almost nothing defined in thinstation.conf.buildtime or network (just icewm
& requied stuff - all sessions started from there).
As stated above, everything worked except the reboot & poweroff (which do
work from the command line). Will look into it a bit more tomorrow (maybe
PS. Mike we need to add smbfs into the dependencies for LinNeighborhood (I
forgot and couldn't work out what was wrong for a little while....
