    Understand that T10 needs to extract base.arm.pkg from dove_boot upon startup since thinOS8.3/8.4.

    I wonder “what if ” I remove the dove_boot file and what is the impact of not loading the package?

    PS: Maybe time to replace them all with 5060

    Then ThinOS will not run 100% fine. Could be that you get error messages, ICA not working, etc.

    Replacing sounds like a good way to go.

    If I understand correctly, the ThinClient loads the base.arm.pkg with each restart completely from dove_boot and transfers the full 13MB of the pkg over LAN respectively WAN from the ftp server?
    Is there a way to get around that?
    Why did the firmware get so much bigger?
    Is it possible to minimize other areas to completely integrate the firmware into the BIOS chip?
    Thanks

    Firmware size increased due to enhancing and adding features.
    There is no way to stop loading the base package on each boot. This is the only way to get the latest firmware on the T10 and give customer the chance to still use these units.

    When you take this option into wnos.ini “autoload=1 LoadPkg=0” the base.pkg didn´t load every startup and until now everything works very well.

    You will see issue, for example, when using Multimedia Redirection as part of the base.pkg are the needed Codecs.

    I am  surprised about the prospective impact of “autoload=1 LoadPkg=0” entry.

    I use it for my production clients with no problems so far, however, they don’t use any multimedia features. I definitely would like to avoid 600 clients in a warehouse to download packages from FTP server at the same time after power failure…

    Does it mean that when WDM FTP server is not available (and unable to download the packages), in some scenarios thin clients may be unable to connect to resources even if “EnableCacheIni=yes” is used…?

    Interstingly, in Wyse 3040 base package is loaded at first boot and stays in the device even if “autoload=1 LoadPkg=0” entry is in use.

    3040 has enough flash to store it. 3010 doesn’t.

    sorry to rehash the topic –

    The solution “LoadPkg=0” did not change anything for me.

    i.e. i can ignore this message and have to accept it when using 3010 devices, right?
