I was working with my thin client and suddenly appear it the startup login screen, why this disconnection?
Check /var/log/Xorg.7.log.old on the client, it sounds like a possible xorg crash
alkisg: How to find the crash in the log?

fuzzmew: sounds like you didn't run the initial-setup from ltsp-manager
Ok will do again
btw, output of this? netstat -nap | grep :67
|15:50||lucascastro has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
fuzzmew: ok i see that now you ran initial setup and dnsmasq is running
Reboot and see if it works

at the attempt to boot client, it made it past the DHCP and on to TFTP error and it says the image file cannot be found
|16:37||vagrantc has joined IRC (vagrantc!~vagrant@unaffiliated/vagrantc)|
pxelinux.0 no such file or directory
fuzzmew: and have you ran ltsp-update-image -c /, or using the ltsp-manager menu?
I will run it commandline, the manager did not seem to do anything
fuzzmew: you went to the server > create image menu?
and it "didn't do anything"?
Did you read the documentation pages in turn?
It feels like you didn't read them, and you're asking to have them re-written here in irc :D
ltsp-manager: LTSP Manager is a GUI tool that makes LTSP maintenance easy. It's the recommended way to install LTSP in common setups. More info: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager
Just follow the pages there, it doesn't take more than 3 mins to read/execute them...
I will try doing the commandline instead then.
The correct way is to follow the wiki of ltsp-manager
If you don't follow it and you're trying various things, then you're asking for trouble :)
It's 4 lines there
If you try it and it doesn't work, we need to solve the issue
Ok sorry I did not know what to do wen I saw no indicator that it was building the image
But it's supposed to show a terminal that updates the image etc
It didn't show anything in your case?
If not , run ltsp-manager from a terminal, so that we see stderr
under the image it has only the choices update and revert
read the page
Now it is updating the image, ok so I pick UPDATE.
and if it fails, I can pick Revert right?
yes that's what the wiki says
read it please
Ok reading again
It does not say what to do when the client ends up with an initramfs prompt.
fuzzmew: I suspect you didn't read the other page?
the section about "ipappend 3" there
(of course, you need to do all of it...)

IT does not say anything about what to do if you get initramfs, I searched and searched and it isn't in there
I did everyting and pasted it all in.
well, I did my bit. I will just wait

hello everyone, I was wondering how can I troubleshoot X_BLANKING. It seems it is only effective when the machine is at the ldm login screen
is this normal behaviour ?
fuzzmew: I have a few minutes for vnc if you like
onixx: no, it's not normal, unless there are desktop settings that override it, e.g. gnome per user settings
For example many desktop environments come with preconfigured screensavers...
x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr
fuzzmew: so the problem was indeed that you haven't followed http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager/Installation until AFTER the installation :)
So it was too late to take effect :)
I.e. you had ipappend 3, but you had run the ltsp-update-image before the change... so it didn't take effect
In the next installation, just follow the steps in order
That is so strange, I could swear I read it all.........maybe I'm going mad, I typed in everything it told me to. I don't know how it could have happened
Hmmm, then maybe there's a 1% chance that I've missed something, although many people have tried it successfully...
Anyways, it should be fine now
Test with real clients etc
It worked once before a couple of years ago, so I don't know where I went wrong
Thank you 1000 times
fuzzmew: btw i didn't check,is that linuxmint?
And the only change necessary was --install-recommends, right?
Yes, 18.2 sonya
If I remember I will add that to anything I install

alkisg: i stumbled across this and was reminded of the idea to put all of ltsp into the initramfs: http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=SYSLINUX#INITRD_initrd_file
alkisg: using a similar technique for another project
