tty question


Hello,
I wonnder if it's possible to handle a Linux computer via more than 1 I/O terminals with ttys. Is it possible for example to have a central computer in a house and than there're terminals in the rooms and the different rooms can listen to different music, for example, from the central computer?

Yes, of course. See the Linux Terminal Server Project. Many different distributions have LTSP in their repos.

Hi,

In one short answer: yes. In fact, this is where Linux shines. But, a terminal may not even be needed. You could simply hook stuff up and be off...depending on what you're setting yourself as goal.

In my experience? Okay, well, I run a private network, there's a print server, I can print from anywhere in the house, there's a webserver where central stuff/documents are kept, but...ther's also an Icecast server, to listen to music. The sky, and the modem are litterally the limit!

Anything you need to know, here's the place!

What about...

Maybe set up a streaming server? http://www.google.com/search?q=linux...ient=firefox-a

thank you,
and is it possible that these terminals are LCD panels in the walls with touchscreen? I mean if I can learn how to write a program in C that will switch the lights in the house and the music and so on, everything from the central computer, can Linux handle terminals which don't have keyboard and mouse, only a specific interface in a touchscreen.

A number of modern Linux distributions support touchscreens out of the box. They generally look to the system like a drawing tablet.
