Pardus Terminal Server Project ------------------------------ What is PTSP? PTSP aims to create an easy to setup and use thin-client Pardus servers with management scripts and graphical user interfaces. With pisi, mudur, coolplug, zorg and comar tools Pardus has all the infrastructure to create an automatically bootable rootfs with its own packages. The management of these packages are all done by Pardus developers. Why not LTSP? LTSP is another distribution that is used on the thin-client machines. It has its own packaging system with a perl based management tool. The created rootfs by ltsp admin tool is not Pardus. Updating the packages, and keeping up with the distribution is not an easy task. The management and configuration scripts are hacky. Why not MueKow? MueKow is just an idea right now. As stated at the wiki of the project: """ An important point I want to make is that what we're outlining below is just an experiment at this point. We're going to try it to see if it works. If it works as we hope, it will likely become the basis for the next major release of LTSP. If it doesn't work, well... at least we'll have learned something. """ Python where possible Pardus also mostly uses Python where possible. LTSP uses mostly hackish bash scripts. With zorg, mudur and Comar configurations can be done mostly automatically on the clients with standart distribution packages. Comar is also a ready advantage for thin client management, configuration and information gathering needs, which is also an important part of Pardus.
