ok, found PXELINUX_DEFAULT=menu option in chroot /etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf mentioned in a chat log, tested and works! (to make the change available, outside chroot, do also ltsp-chroot --arch=i386 /usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels ; ltsp-update-kernels)

<BuddyButterfly>
hey
16:10
alkisg: ltsp runs so smooth now! perfect!
16:11
and patch helped. Clients boot up stable....
16:33
<alkisg>
BuddyButterfly: by patch, you mean the nbd-client dpkg-divert command?
16:34
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: yep, that one helped!
16:34
better to say workaround....
16:34
<alkisg>
Cool, nice to hear
16:35
<BuddyButterfly>
Last thing I am working on is to run separate ssh session on clients.....
16:35
<alkisg>
Meaning?
16:35
<BuddyButterfly>
cause I want to use the clients as "stand alone" clients and be able to connect to it via x2go.
16:35
<alkisg>
And you don't want epoptes, right?
16:35
<BuddyButterfly>
I want to "misuse" ltsp as central system management for the clients.
16:36
so only 1 system to maintain, configure and install software....
16:36
<alkisg>
You understand that you won't be able to ssh to the clients except as root, because there are no users to the clients?
16:36
I.e. you will only be able to use x2go as root
16:37
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: didn't thinkg about it yet, so I guess I do not understand it yet.
16:37
okey....
16:37
<alkisg>
What is the use case for x2go to the clients instead of to the server?
16:37
<BuddyButterfly>
that is a valid point.
16:37
<alkisg>
So that you run the programs on the clients to use their cpu/ram?
16:38
<BuddyButterfly>
yep, resource separation.
16:38
<alkisg>
And you'll be using x2go from some remote location,not from lan, right?
16:38
<BuddyButterfly>
you know, my ltsp is virtual.
16:38
both, remote vpn site and local lan.
16:39
<alkisg>
Your ltsp clients are virtual/
16:39
?
16:39
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: not all ;-)
16:39
mixed....
16:39
<alkisg>
Eh, you do know that doesn't make much sense, right? :)
16:39
Having what, fat clients booting as VMs on the same server?
16:40
Why not use some resource separation tool instead, like lxc or something?
16:40
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: for this I do only have 4 VMs...
16:40
remember that they are location independent and can move from one virtual to another.
16:41
<alkisg>
I can't see the point in this... why not x2go to the server itself then/
16:41
?
16:41
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: can not distribute VMs then. has to run on that server.
16:41
<alkisg>
But VMs run on the server...
16:41
<BuddyButterfly>
if there is a heavier load needed and I would like to move the vm to another pc, I can not.
16:42
<alkisg>
You can just boot a client at that point
16:42
<BuddyButterfly>
have you ever used kvm and moved VMs around from one hardware to the other?
16:42
<alkisg>
No need for VM
16:42
Sure, kvm, virtualbox etc
16:42
But linux can be moved too, it doesn't have need of a VM
16:42
It's not windows, it doesn't care about the underlying hardware
16:43
Anyways, whatever suits you :)
16:43
bbiab!
16:44
<BuddyButterfly>
alkisg: yeah, have to think a bit about it.
