Re: Once PC supporting 10 clients

Actually, I have asked for test hardware to get it working out of the
box in Debian Edu.  The multiseat package from Ubuntu used to work for
a four seat solution, but it has not been updated for a long time and
do no longer work.  It is not very hard to get this working, if the
video cards used can be used together.  With USB keyboards and mice,
it is no problem to have several plugged into the same machine, and
the only challenge is grouping of the displays, keyboards and mices,
which can be done by displaying information in the screen and asking
for feedback on the keyboard, as <URL:http://userful.com/> obviously
is doing.

If you want to check out the multiseat package, it is in the etch-test
APT repository.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
