upgrade rdesktop on thin client
I've got a HP Compaq thin client t5525. It's a small thin client from 2006 with a VIA 800MHz, 128Mo RAM and 256Mo flash disk.
I'm a beginner with this kind of hardware, and my english isn't very good. Sorry.
I got it without any document or any software installed. So on HP website I've found a Linux image (2.4 kernel) and installed it.
My test "Server" is a Windows 7 Pro PC.
When the thin client boots on its Linux system, it can ping and be pinged from the Windows 7 PC. The integrated Firefox browser can access Internet. I've tried my Windows 7 PC IP and the PC name as "Computer" without success.
It seams I must install a newer version of rdesktop, but I can't make it. I've downloaded 1.7.1, uncompressed it, but when I enter "make" I've an erreur message. How to do ?
I just want to run RDP for my Windows PC, so if the solution is to install another linux or another OS, another tool,... I'm OK with this. Just want to make it work ! ;-)
Thank your for your help.
