Last Friday alkisg helped me configuring a Wheezy chroot under Ubuntu LTSP correctly. I'm now setting up the second server and have it almost all done, except I cannot find the file in which you had we change NFS to NBD to switch the Debian chroot to the Ubuntu way. Which file is it? (It's not in the irc logs, since it was a private chat), but if I recall correctly it was in chroot.
16:23
highvoltage: Is there by chance documentation somewhere how to setup up NBD for clients rather than NFS?
16:23
I can't find anything that deals with this on the web...
16:27
<DJUnreal>
!nbd
16:27
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'nbd', but I do know about these similar topics: 'disable-nbd-proxy', 'nbd-proxy', 'nbd-compression', 'quick-nbd-tests', 'nbd-client'
16:28
<DJUnreal>
!nfs
16:28
<ltsp>
nfs: the protocol that serves the files needed by LTSP. You can find info at http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/NFS
16:28
<DJUnreal>
!nbd-client
16:28
<ltsp>
nbd-client: To try mounting the NBD image from the client initramfs: nbd-client 192.168.67.1 -N /opt/ltsp/i386 /dev/nbd0
16:28
<DJUnreal>
if you do ltsp-update-image it says something about NBD there too
16:28* DJUnreal doesn't use NBD so doesn't know for sure

17:03
<lifeboy>
I also found http://doc.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/edubuntu/handbook/C/customizing-thin-client.html
17:04
The files that contain the changes are /etc/default/ltsp-client-setup in the chroot and /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/ltsp

I have been told (and have read in various logs that running ltsp-update-image for a debian client chroot will the LTSP client to nbd. I have the second server now where it doesn't do this. So I edited /etc/default/ltsp-client-setup and have root_write_method="unionfs" and deleted /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/ltsp. Now my client starts booting, but then I see on the console "Begin: Running /scripts/nfs-premount" and then "connect:
19:23
Connection refused" followed by "read: Connection refused"
19:25
Of course, this is because it seems an NFS connection is attempted, but I don't have an NFS share for the client since I want to use NBD. What now?

Why would crucial files in an LTSP server installation not be created? I installed ltsp-server-standalone and subsequently replaced isc-dhcp-server with dnsmasq, but some config files are just not there. For example /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-image.conf

alkisg: The changes you helped me with on Friday a week ago, which files where they done in. I cannot find them. I thought it was in the chroot and it was /etc/default/ltsp-client-setup...?
20:57* alkisg needs to wave goodnight, gotta wake up at 05:20... tomorrow :)
