The only supported terminal for this OS right now is the T50, which is an
*ARM*-based client.

has more information. The Ubuntu platform uses some kind of deb packaging.

Settings are not retained across reboots. It seems /home is tmpfs, so it's not
a good place for persistent configuration.

We should probably automatically create symlinks into /wfs, which is in turn a
symlink to /etc/wyseroot. In order to do this, we need to verify how things
works on Wyse Enhanced Suse Linux. Unfortunately, our terminal has stopped
working. Trying to reflash. It's marked as Z60D but rumor says it is actually a
Z50D. But in any case, it does not accept a Z50D firmware imaage.
