alkisg: Hi, the 64bit clients are working great, but Is it posible to boot a 32bit client(s) off the 64bit server? I have built the 32bit client - I have the /i386 folder and images/i386.img, but 32bit clients not booting.
08:51
<fiesh>
"not booting" is like the worst problem description possible

<Hyperbyte>
It's up there with "it's not working", "I get some error" and "something is wrong"
11:38
<fiesh>
slightly better than "something happens" though!
11:59
<veryn00b_again>
more focus on the part " but Is it posible to boot a 32bit client(s) off the 64bit server?"
12:00
like with a 32bit client image?
12:54
<Hyperbyte>
Yes it is, but you'll have specify via PXE which client gets which image. I believe that can be done via mac address.
12:54
Are these thin clients?
12:55
<veryn00b_again>
yes
12:55
Hyperbyte: yes
12:57
Hyperbyte: some thin some fat
13:22
<Hyperbyte>
veryn00b_again, why do you care about 64bit for thin clients? Just make them 32bit.
13:22
You're making a lot of work for yourself if you start configuring thin clients on a per-mac basis, but that's usually what will be required.

13:37
<veryn00b_again>
If I could just get one 32bit client going for now that would be fine
13:37
How does one config to specify which clients get which image?
13:43
<Hyperbyte>
veryn00b_again, via dhcp would be the easiest.

14:17
<very_n00b>
how do you make all clients 32bit?
14:20
or can one edit it into the "Default LTSP dhcpd.conf config file"
14:26Faith has joined IRC (Faith!~Paty_@unaffiliated/faith)

<||cw>
very_n00b: if you only build a 32bit client image, then they will only get the 32bit

<derick_>
Is it even possible to add support of RaspberryPi client to ltsp-manager?
18:01
<||cw>
derick_: only if the server is also an rpi
18:01
ltsp-manager would need extended to support multiple chroots. right now it just clones the server install for clients
18:02
likely would still need some minor mods for pi-server
18:04
<derick_>
For my GSoC project I need to make that happen in 3 weeks
18:04
|| cw : Is it even possible?

I really can't tell you what timeframe you can do something in. I probably could if I worked full time on it even though I don't even know offhand what language it's coded in. but I've at least peeked into the scripts once before, have been using linux since '99, and programming since the 80's.
20:25
I'd be happy to advise where I can, though I'm not really a ltsp developer, just a user/admin
20:32
<derick_>
linux since '99, and programming since the 80's. Thanks super cool.
20:33
I started with linux 1 year ago. Got to know about LTSP a month ago.
20:34
It would be great to get advice from as experienced as you.
