<Vlad__>
hi, today i discovered that ndb section name MUST start with / else you get an error during boot
10:32
the cause is initrd script /scripts/local-top/nbd that parses "nbdroot" parameter
10:32
nbdport=${nbdportpath%%/*}
10:33
nbdpath=${nbdportpath#$nbdport}
10:33
was this made on purpose?
10:33
because it doesn't seem right

<alkisg>
Vlad__: that's a decision of the developer of nbd
10:49
If you want to change that, file a bug report in debian in the nbd package, and mention your thoughts there
10:49
ltsp-config properly generates configuration files, so it's not an ltsp issue
10:50
<Vlad__>
ok, thanks

Hi all
16:15
i am building a new server for our company
16:15
Can you recommend the best distribution for LTSP ?
16:16
We used Debian Lenny on the old server
16:16
Is there something better now ?

I like Ubuntu + the Greek PPA
17:13
but to be honest it has been a long time since I seriously used different distros

https://launchpad.net/~ts.sch.gr/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
17:18
actually, unless you can use that PPA on other distros as well Ubuntu might very well be your best experience

<alkisg>
exebat, quinox, no, that PPA cannot be used in other distros (I'm the one maintaining it)
18:41
Ubuntu is my preferred choice as well; Debian is also fine though.

ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is an alternative (upstream) method to maintain LTSP installations for thin and fat clients that doesn't involve chroots: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp

<alkisg>
That's a good how-to.
