OpenSLX - Open StateLess eXtensions version 5.0.7b
OpenSLX is a software package for setting up, managing and booting of
"stateless client systems" (a.k.a. "diskless X stations").
Information on installation and the required packages can be found in
the doc/ folder (especially intro.txt). Further information is available
through the web pages:
--> http://www.openslx.org (project)
--> http://www.openslx.org/projects/show/openslx-doc (documentation)
--> http://lists.openslx.org (mailing lists)
New versions will be released in short timeframes - at least once a month -
such that we can react to feedback promptly. Aim of the git head phase is to
stabilize the software in preparation for the upcoming beta release.
Upgrading from one svn release to the other should be a seamless operation, as
eventual differences between the DB-schema should be adjusted automatically.
Only for *downgrades*, manual intervention might be needed.
NOTES ABOUT THIS RELEASE
* Cloning is the only form of vendor-OS creation we can currently recommend
for a vendor-OS that is meant to be run in production.
The fresh installation of a vendor-OS into a folder will not work any more.
Questions, wishes and general feedback are very welcome. Please direct them
