sukker: ltsp doesn't support uefi out of the box yet. I've done some tests with various levels of success. The best one was with grub efi
07:19
So, I used the client's uefi pxe stack to load grub efi over the network. Then, grub can load whatever, from .efi kernels to non-efi kernels
07:19
It's possible to directly load a kernel.efi over the network, but it would be much harder, so I don't think there's any point in trying that
07:19
ipxe.efi cannot load non-efi kernels though. grub efi can do it
07:20
So if you're trying with ipxe, you'd need ipxe and kernel.efi. With pxe stack + netgrub efi, any kernel will do.
07:20
And syslinux also has some efi support, but it's not easier than the other two
07:29
Btw, why "build" a kernel? Which distro is that?!

Hello, Just upgraded from Debian 8 to 9. Having trouble getting latest version to work.
09:43
Following instructions at https://wiki.debian.org/LTSP/Howto

nfs on way out. All clients set up as fat. How do I change back to thin?
09:45
Fat clients work but cannot unlock a screen. Need ldap?
09:46
Would prefer to keep clients as thin, or at least know how to swap between
09:47
tried LTSP_FATCLIENT=false but did not work :-( not in man page for lts.conf
09:59
<alkisg>
simonc: if LTSP_FATCLIENT=False didn't work, then your clients don't read your lts.conf
09:59
To unlock the screen, see this:
09:59
!hash
09:59
<ltsp`>
I do not know about 'hash', but I do know about these similar topics: 'ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH', 'LDM_PASSWORD_HASH'
09:59
<alkisg>
!LDM_PASSWORD_HASH
09:59
<ltsp`>
LDM_PASSWORD_HASH: LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=True in lts.conf saves the password hash to /etc/shadow on login, so that the users can unlock the screensaver etc. If they happen to change their password though, that only takes effect until logout.
10:04
<simonc>
Thanks will try your suggestions!
10:09
:-) LDM Password Hash works a treat. Cheers.

Fat Client works, when lts.conf changed to LTSP_FATCLIENT=False the client boots but no graphical display, just dreaded single flashing cursor in top left :-(
12:58
Will try and debug in the meantime.
13:06
<alkisg>
simonc: you may have conficting lts.conf directives; what's your current lts.conf?
13:07
Ah, also try this: X_SMART_COLOR_DEPTH=False

<simonc>
Hi Alkisg, thanks for the help. I can get CTRL-ALT-F1 to get a console, the hostname is that of the client not the server, then login as root using root passwd of server, then startx works fine. But only as root user.
13:25
Am I right in thinking master lts.conf is in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf then after making changes you should update the image?
13:27
[Default] LDM_DIRECTX=True, LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=True, USE_LOCAL_SWAP=True
13:28
[mac1] LTSP_FATCLIENT=False [mac2] LTSP_FATCLIENT=True
13:29
This seems to be a very retrograde step. Jessie worked more or less straight out of the box. Stretch on the other hand :-(
13:39
<alkisg>
simonc: distros are not important, software is
13:40
E.g. kernel devs don't really support i386 anymore,
13:40
xorg devs don't really support 16 bpp color modes anymore,
13:40
etc etc
13:40
Did you try X_SMART_COLOR_DEPTH=False? I don't see it in your lts.conf
13:41
You don't need to update the image after updating lts.conf
13:41
<simonc>
Will try it.
13:41
Okay thanks.
13:44
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet !
13:47
That worked. WooHoo. Kudos to you Alkis. I assume you are the person in the changelog of ltsp-doc along with vagrant.
13:48
<alkisg>
Yes, I'm an ltsp developer
13:48
Cheers for now, later...
