greetings.

i've recently been experimenting a little with the ThinClientServer PBI.
i'd like to explore using it as a base for additional customizations.

where is the source code used for building the ThinClientServer PBI? i
tried looking for it at http://trac.pcbsd.org/browser and i couldn't
find the parts specific to ThinClientServer.

i've maintained the LTSP (http://ltsp.org) packages in Debian for the
past few years, and was looking at porting some of the code over to
PC-BSD and/or FreeBSD, though admittedly my skills with PC-BSD and
FreeBSD are weak at this point.

one starting point would be the login manager, LDM:
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/ldm

older versions of LDM at least compiled on Debian's GNU/kFreeBSD port,
though recent versions apparently introduced some system calls not
available with a FreeBSD kernel.

it may also be interesting to get a port of LTSPFS, although i'm not
sure if the FUSE implementation for FreeBSD would require many code
changes to LTSPFS:
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/ltspfs

thanks!

live well,
  vagrant
