Changing the document route is easy, it's the gateway that's hard

hi ltsp users, I have an unusual question: is it possible to save and run an ltsp image on a local hardrive?
10:32
<muppis>
Well.. It's not that unusual. :D
10:32
Yes, it's possible. There's multiple ways to do it.
10:33
<roland>
My plan is to use notebooks as ltsp fatclients, which would be a giant step for our system. I could run the image locally and use nfs and ldap to connect to our servers
10:33
best would be to have the notebooks boot with pxe, but I understand, that that is hard to do
10:34
<muppis>
Not at all.
10:34
But depends the way you connect them to lan.
10:35
<roland>
so I want a pxe menu label "download and install fatclient" which can be done with the network cable attached. and after that boot from local disk (image or fs) and then use the ltsp server wireless
10:37
"multiple ways" ??? sounds promising
10:38
do you have a link for me?
10:39
<muppis>
Easiest way, if you already have GRUB installed, is have image on disk as is and load it from there. There little things to do to (afaik) actually load it from the image.
10:39
!local
10:39
<ltsp`>
I do not know about 'local', but I do know about these similar topics: 'install-localapp', 'localdev', 'localapps-print', 'RDP-localdev', 'localapps', 'LocaldevCommonGroupWorkaround', 'localxterm', 'local-disks', 'local-boot'
10:40
<muppis>
!local-boot
10:40
<ltsp`>
local-boot: If you want LTSP fat clients on a low-speed network, you can put i386.img on e.g. C:\Boot\LTSP\i386.img and use this command line in pxelinux.cfg: APPEND ro initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img init=/sbin/init-ltsp root=/dev/sda1 rootflags=ro loop=/Boot/LTSP/i386.img; IPAPPEND 3
10:40
<muppis>
That's for Windows machines, but you can adapt it to grub.
10:53
And, if your know how to do it, I suggest you expand that image to actual hdd so it's easier maintain.

<roland>
Thanks a lot, I did'nt know it is that easy. I will try it.
