Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2008-11-07 15:08:26 CET
It would be nice if we could provide a YUM repository with the latest version of the ThinLinc client. Two things are necessary:

1) We need to provide a repository on our web server (like 
http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/ or
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os/).
A repository needs a "repodata" directory. We can probably include such a directory on the client CD. 

2) We might consider a RPM with a YUM repo configuration file. Even Adobe does this nowadays:

http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Such a package could also be included on the client CD.
