I had a LTSP server setup quite a few years ago... With Ubuntu And Redhat Clones And now want to setup a new one.

I Would Like To Set Up A Classroom With LTSP...

I have Xeon Servers and Workstations... and about 40 Dell d600 and Higher Laptops...

I have Ubuntu, Fedora, And Windows 10.

I am best with Fedora But would use anyone.

Where would I find the latest RPM's to download along with the current manuals...

On the LTSP.ORG page and the UBUNTU SUPPORT site I cannot make heads or tails of it...

The Ubuntu site every link I clicked took me back to the same page.

I seem to be going in circles... Just to let you know I am really computer literate ... but this has always gotten me.

I Still receive Newsletters so I assume there is still support.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Michael,

I'm not technically strong, but I think I can help with your question.
For me, once K12LTSP was no longer easily usable, I switched to
Edubuntu. I found it just as easy to run as K12LTSP was - download
the ISO, install, and everything just worked. We have about 50
computers on our server and it's been up and running for years without
an issue.

https://edubuntu.org/

Give it a try - the documentation is all there as well.

Have a nice day.
Joseph

​Then I would take a look at Debian Edu. It is maintained, supported, and
actively developed.

Even given what I had said earlier, K12Linux (the new K12LTSP) is based
on CentOS 6, and as such, CentOS updates will still be coming for quite
a few years yet.

Here's what I would do if I were you.

That's great, but if you follow the links to the install guide, it points to a repo that no longer exists - you can't follow these instructions and get a working system.

Regards,
Paul.

I'm having trouble finding the ISO download. Is that not available anymore?

A little Googling turned up this location. You should be able to use it
as a repository.

Get a look a Kiwi-LTSP.
It's stable and supported.
