<James_Epp>
PxE related question: In my /var/lib/tftpboot/ I have a pxelinux.0 file and pxelinux.cfg folder containing a default file. My DHCP server is set to forward network booting to the server with filename pxelinux.0. However, when booting a client, I get the error "PXE_E32: TFTP open timeout", yet the client receives an IP, mask, and default gateway.

Is it possible to load a fat client and not use nbd for the /home of the client, just put the entire thing on the remote machine and don't allow saving changes/files, etc.

hi
19:44
i'm trying to boot a thin client, but the screen gets black after boot :/
19:45
the ltsp-server is the latest, and i have followed the recipe step by step without any error to this point
19:47
i have managed to obtain the /var/log/messages from the client, and i have found a this error:
19:47
<||cw>
JesseC: /home has to be writable or your desktop env and many programs won't work. you can use NFS for /home, I think
19:47
well, /home/$user

JesseC: nbd in ltsp is read only and is not used for /home. By default, sshfs is used for home, and one can configure ltsp to use nfs too.
20:24
JesseC: but, it's very easy (2-3 lines in lts.conf) to set up a writeable nbd /home, that is cleared on reboot, to have exactly what you want...
20:24
How much RAM do your clients have?
