what do you run on the ThinClient ? any other software than standard LTSP3 ?
LTSP3 needs 16-20MB RAM on the ThinClient when NOT using a Font-Server.
I have no experience with Font-Servers. I heard rumors that Fontservers
have problems when used by many Clients(=X Servers).
So far noone could answer my question if XFree86 needs more RAM with or
without using a Font-Server.

there is no need to port anything, look in the contrib area of
the LTSP Website. there is a little program call "spy" that you install
(copy) into /opt/ltsp/....
It lets you read any file or directory on the ThinClient, also /proc

shows numbers, every number is a Process(it's Process ID)
and is also a dircetory tah contains more info about the process.
/proc/<PID>/cmdline tells you the name of the program
/proc/<PID>/status shows yout the memory usage
shows you (in total) how much RAM & Swap is used for all processes.

is LTSP 4 already part of Debian ?
