Looking for a small footprint linux OS with PCoIP connectivity right out of the box

Jump to solution

Like the title says, I'm looking for a small OS like Ubuntu, or whatever really, that has native PCoIP connectivity right out of the box. I want to test an old hunkajunk PC (we have plenty) running that OS and deploy a W7 View Desktop to it.

Pleas include a link where I can download it. :smileysilly:

Thanks

You have to build it but here is a guide on how to do that:

That looks like it could work. A little complicated though. I guess I should've said it had to be "Easy"......lol

So this sparks my curiousity. So is this something you boot from USB or can install on the hard drive as the client OS. If you can install on HD, does it provide the same options as thin client or windows OS? (IE. multi-monitor, changing display resolution, local printers, local usb)

hard drive sure

USB yes

Multi monitor I think so

Everything else a big fat no.

Can't put the CDFS image on a hard drive.

This works great. Now I just need to figure out how to change the name of the pc running it and i'm good to go.

It can be changed using the /bin/hostname <newname> but my goal is to have different names.

I am going to try and dedicate some time into this when I can. This is a good product. Kicks butt on an old Pentium 4 PC with Parallel ATA drive.

Sorry I meant you can create a Linux distro on a HD. But I guess that was obvious.

I really like the look of how it just comes up to that screen. It would be great if it had more options for installing it as the client os. It'd be perfect for older computers to just wipe the current drive and intall a small footprint os like this.

Hi,  I wonder if you owuld be able to provide the ISO you were talking about in this forum as I am looking to do exactly this?  If you can't then no problem, just thought I would ask.

Thanks.
