LTSP-4.1 beta 1 is going really well. We've been squishing lots of
bugs, and things are looking good.
Among the bug-fixes/enhancements are:
o Updated the niclist in the initrd (part of the kernel pkg).
Somehow, the niclist in the first ltsp-4.1 kernel package was
o Created a kernel modules package.
o Fixed the rdesktop screen_script. It was looking for XFree86 instead
of the newer Xorg binary.
o USB Mice and Keyboards should now be automatically detected and used.
No additional entries in lts.conf should be needed.
o Applied patch from Eric Harrison, so that if the video chipset can't
be auto-detected, a warning will be displayed, but then the 'vesa'
Xserver will be used.
o Additional video chipsets added to the vidlist, for video chipset
o Fixed the kernel panic problem when booting with Etherboot.
A wrong value was being passed to the kernel for the root fs,
which caused /linuxrc to be run twice. The 2nd time would fail
because dhcpcd was already running.
If you are running LTSP-4.1 Beta 1, then updating is really simple.
As root, just run the 'ltspadmin' utility and choose
"Install/Update LTSP Packages"
It will show you the components that have updates available.
Go ahead and select those updates, and when you leave that screen,
the updates will be installed.
