It was great to be at LinuxTag, it was the first time I have been to LinuxTag in fact!
So here is what happened to me at LinuxTag:
On Saturday we also had openSUSE day at LinuxTag and i had the opportunity of talking about Easy-LTSP (in English), a video of my talk and the slides will be available soon in the openSUSE wiki. And according to AJ it must be worth watching it
Beside these “major” things i had a lot of talks with teachers who want to use openSUSE in there schools and it was really great to show them how easy openSUSE Education Li-f-e is.
And of course it was great to meet all the people at the openSUSE booth and nubae!
Thanks to all who have visited us and to all who made it possible to present openSUSE and openSUSE Education in the way we could!
Be sure to checkout Adrian’s pictures, you can see our cool openSUSE Education shirts on some.
So Google Summer of Code is definitely over!
It was a great experience starting working in open source with such a program! My work on Easy-LTSP will continue and as you might have read her i have started to work on another great project for openSUSE, the openSUSE education project. The graphical part of the YaST module is almost done, so no new screens of that (only ycp code now).
But Easy-LTSP has some eyecandy for you Enjoy the new Easy-LTSP logo:
Thanks to cyberorg for having such a great artist on the hand. But that’s not all cyberorg did for Easy-LTSP, he made a great video about using Kiwi-LTSP and Easy-LTSP to setup an LTSP server on openSUSE.
For those of you waiting for photos of Hackweek and FrOSCon, be patient hopefully tomorrow i have more time!
After the release of the new Easy-LTSP packages, there was a little bug preventing it from starting It is fixed now and new packages are available in BuildService server:ltsp repository. And of course a tarball can be found here.
But not only the bug was fixed! Thanks to mhutch GLib.ExceptionManager is now caring about unhandled exceptions.
The Kiwi-LTSP module got a new look and the Kiwi localapp variable found it’s way inside the module
First implementation of an undo/redo functionality based on the savings is also in the package!
So go out and check it out! Please report bugs or enhancements to devzilla bugtracker.
There are also packages for Fedora9 availlable.
I am currently working on the new layout of the Easy-LTSP wiki page, there is 1-click install available there.
As GSoC is almost over Easy-LTSP is going into a new round!
Some new task found there way into this version:
- X Security
I also made some changes to the look of the whole app.
So go and check it out! If you want to have the Kiwi-LTSP specific module integrated run configure –with-kiwi
If you find any Bugs or want to request a task or have any other comment, feel free to leave it here or use Devzilla Bugtracker for it!
Last but not least a little screenshot:
As always feedback and comments are welcome! More info on this version coming tomorrow!
GSoC is going on and now I have a new version of Easy-LTSP. It is almost complete so give it a try!
Please give it a try and fill bug and enhancement requests here.
Since my last post it has been a while!
But work continued. Easy-LTSP now has the first base functionality to edit and create lts.conf!
You can use predefined tasks, like Display, to set resolution and color depth, or you can add variables in advanced view!
Take a look at my screenshot Page for a look at the current state! (New binaries are coming soon)
But I need your help now:
Please, tell me any further tasks that might be useful to have in Easy-LTSP! We currently have:
So if you have any further tasks, please tell me!
Looking forward for your comments!
The first part in advancing lts.conf has been made. I build a serializable data structure representing the lts.conf file!
The first serialized XML file can be viewed here :
It is serialized out of my data structure and can easily and quick be deserialized in the data structure (with manual edits in XML too). Have a look at it!
(One comment: some tags are needed by the data structure to work, others will be used by UI only)
After a long time not posting anything here’s one for you:
The advanced part of kiwi-ltsp configuration is based in the mainwindow. The whole process for setting up kiwi-ltsp is controlled by a menu.
Newest binaries are available at : ftp://forgeftp.novell.com/kiwi-ltsp/easy-ltsp-0.2.tar.gz
Check it out and if you like, give a little feedback!
After our Easy-LTSP project meeting yesterday i thought it was about time to proof i am right with what i’m saying. So i started a little coding yesterday.
So i tried to dynamically load a lib in my application and hooray it worked, so hopefully no problems with all the libs for the different modules and the door will be open for other distros to put in there parts.
The next thing that had to be proven is the network stuff and hooray this worked too. So the possibility for remote administration of an LTSP server is getting nearer, although this will not be part of the initial application but i will have an eye on this while implementing, so we can get this in the future!
Let’s put everything together now and get the final discussions running and look forward to the start of coding, ten days to go!
