linux on thin clients


In the company where I used to work, we bought 2 thin clients, thinking it were just TFT monitors. So we don't have a server. Is it possible to run linux on it without a server, just the thin client.

I have no clue

I'm not into sun systems or solaris whatever it was, but I know we just could turn it on and only a waiting cursor appears on the screan, I thought it was waiting for a sun server to boot up from LAN and I was thinking, isn't there a way to fake a sun server with a linux pc to run the thin clients from that pc.

It looks like you are talking about SunRays.
There's no O/S on them, so they do not really boot from LAN, but definitively need a Sun server to be used.
There are plans to have the server software released for Linux:

I think you meen indeed
You can also use them as TFT monitors, until you find a server.
