Is it possible to have ltsp on mint linux? I have 18.2 and I tried the wiki page and another one, and neither worked, I wonder what I am doing wrong?
06:43
I tried to boot from a laptop And a virtual machine and neither works, it says no such file or directory

Also, better use ubuntu mate instead of mint, as mint packaging is horrible

Ok, will try going back to Ubuntu
15:11
<ZAJDAN>
fuzzmew: I personally use Debian8-32bit-mate and works perfect
15:12
<fuzzmew>
Yes I can supply the errors. These were the only errors I got, at the very end of when you do the install and download.

15:14
The instructions were this one
15:14
http://chschneider.eu/linux/server/ltsp-server.shtml
15:15
I can try Debian also.
15:26
<alkisg_web>
fuzzmew: the actual error is above those lines
15:26
Put all the screen output to pastebin
15:27
Is that inside a chroot?
15:30
<fuzzmew>
that is the chroot one
15:30
the other one was not a chroot one and did not work either, but I will get you the address of that one as well. I only saved that bit, but I can do it again and capture as much as you want and pastebin it if you need me to
15:31
<alkisg_web>
Nah, I prefer not to support mint at all since it's broken
15:31
If you can switch to ubuntu, do that instead
15:31
(or debian)
15:32
<fuzzmew>
ok
15:32
<alkisg_web>
Good instructions:
15:32
!ltsp-pnp
15:32
<ltsp>
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
15:32
<alkisg_web>
!forget ltsp-pnp
15:32
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.
15:33wim1 has left IRC (wim1!~Thunderbi@WEGC33.UNI-GRAZ.AT, Quit: wim1)
15:33
<alkisg_web>
!learn ltsp-pnp as ltsp-pnp is the recommented method to install and maintain LTSP for "usual" setups. Since it doesn't involve chroots, it requires little to no command line to maintain it. It automatically supports both thin and fat ltsp clients. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
15:33
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.

<alkisg_web>
fuzzmew: read the "DNS issues" section of the ltsp-pnp page that I mentioned above
16:50
This will solve the dnsmasq issues

Ok, I put in the dns issues stuff but got an error, am I to be using mint or ubuntu because I have not put ubuntu on yet. I am getting mixed messages.
17:21
<alkisg_web>
Put ubuntu and we talk later
17:21
<fuzzmew>
Ok will do. Thank you

<alkisg_web>
desperate_user, why are you desperate? :D
17:23
<desperate_user>
Looks like I screwed up my LTSP installation.
17:26
I am using LTSP-PNP with fat clients. It used to work, but recently the clients failed to boot
17:26
can't find the kernel image. Looks like they are not copied to the tftp directory. The symlinks are there but they point to nowhere
17:30
I did use ltsp-update-kernels instead of /usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels. Could that have caused the issues?

fuzzmew: since you created amd64, why do you try to open i386
18:22
It's a user error
18:54desperate_user has left IRC (desperate_user!4e2b136d@gateway/web/freenode/ip.78.43.19.109, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
19:18
<fuzzmew>
oh, how do I fix that?
19:19
<vagrantc>
try to edit the correct file :)
19:19
<fuzzmew>
oh. which file?
19:24
<vagrantc>
ltsp-config lts.conf
19:24
Created /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf
19:24
xdg-open /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
19:24
xdg-open: file '/var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf' does not exist
19:24
ltsp-config created an amd64/lts.conf, you tried to edit i386/lts.conf
19:28
<fuzzmew>
Oh! That's weird that the page would tell me to put that in. I wonder if I can email the webmaster and tell him about the error? I will just alter that.
19:28
<vagrantc>
fuzzmew: whatever documentation you're following was probably built on an i386 server
19:29
the documentation isn't wrong, per se, it just requires some adaptation
19:29
<fuzzmew>
oh ok, it did not tell me about that. I will make the alterations needed then.
