Hello sruli

16:30
<Robert__>
Allo.
16:30
Anyone around to answer a quick question?
16:30
about LTSP.
16:30
<alkisg>
Yes, ask your question...
16:34
<Robert__>
Thx. I have a ton of wyse/dell zero clients from a vdi-in-a-box implementation that imploded.
16:34
Is there a way to use these to connect to a LTSP server?
16:35
They use HDX protocol.
16:35
I think it's the only option for remote protocols on them.
16:38
<alkisg>
Zero clients in general mean "without a cpu"
16:38
If that's the case, no, they cannot run linux, and of course not ltsp either
16:38
If it's "thin clients", it's a different thing, that means that they have a local cpu, local ram to run the OS etc
16:41
<Robert__>
Hmm. I didn't know zero client meant no CPU.
16:42
I didn't know the client would have to be running linux.
16:42
<alkisg>
Well, mostly "no cpu capable of running linux", they of course would have some kind of microprocessor there
16:42
<Robert__>
yeah.
16:42
<alkisg>
It's "Linux Terminal Server Project", the client needs to run linux
16:43
<Robert__>
So is it just providing a terminal interface to the clients or a linux desktop environment?
16:43
I guess I assumed the latter.
16:44
<alkisg>
LTSP provides a complete desktop
16:45
It runs a linux distribution over the network
16:45
The LTSP code just configures things so that they run over the network; other than that, it's normal ubuntu or debian etc etc
16:49
<Robert__>
Ok.
16:50
I'm casting around trying to find out how to make these zero clients run a browser without relying citrix xenserver anymore.
16:50
Thanks for the help.

<alkisg>
Robert__: buy clients like these ^ and throw away the zero ones :)
16:52
<Robert__>
Heh. This isn't the first time I've regretted going the zero client route.
16:53
That's a pretty low price point. Not a bad idea. but 100 client's later it's a big number.
16:54
<alkisg>
If you can't make the zero clients work, at least that's one option

LTSP is good for netbooting and centrally managing 100 clients, that otherwise would be able to run linux locally if they had disks
16:56
<Robert__>
Indeed. Thanks for the info and help. I appreciate it.
