The OS: http://rpitc.blogspot.com/
What this means is that you will be able to run a remote desktop server right out-the-box on a RPi! No more limitations, but for your mind.
I followed a couple of steps to get this going:
- nano /etc/network/interfaces
iface lo inet loopback
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
- nano more .config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
@rdesktop -u <USER> -p <PASSWORD> -f -E -x l -z -P -r sound:local:alsa:default <IP ADDRESS>
The system booted straight into my RD and I had a powerful RPi!
TODO: Get this to work with XBMC!!! This will be the bomb!
