I am trying to get some older intel atom foxconn thin clients running. My ltsp server runs ubuntu 16.04. The ubuntu 16.04 server installer disc can run in graphical mode but the ltsp image does not display graphics when it boots. The 16.04 desktop live cd does not either. Any idea how I can set graphics to match the 16.04 server installer?
17:52
I am not having much luck and not really sure where to start
17:52
I'd be happy just to get started if I coud just get a text console running
17:55
<alkisg>
!install
17:55
<ltsp>
install: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu for Ubuntu, or http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation for other distributions

<mwalters>
gp: I've had issues with some atom mobos having built in laptop display connectors (LVDS), which can cause issues when X is starting
18:01
also just causes issues in general. Sometimes you can disable them in bios, othertimes they need lines in lts.conf to fix
18:06
<gp>
mwalters: Yes on 14.04 I was able to disable LVDS with xrandr. But just getting a blackscreen with any configuration I try
18:06
<alkisg>
Do you have epoptes installed, so that you access the terminals even with black screen?
18:07
<mwalters>
that's where I was just about to go :D
18:07
<gp>
Whoa live cd just kicked on finally!
18:07
maybe that will let me see the right params
18:14
No but after looking that up it appears I should be
18:15
<alkisg>
Are you using a chroot, or chrootless?
18:15
<gp>
chrootless
18:15
<alkisg>
apt install epoptes; ltsp-update-image -c /
18:21
<gp>
Is it possible to run nomodeset on one client?
18:21
<alkisg>
!quiet
18:21
<ltsp>
quiet: to enable the Debian kernel and initramfs to show up more messages, in order to better troubleshoot the boot process, remove "quiet" from /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
18:22
<alkisg>
So, you copy default
18:22
to 01-mac-address
18:22
and you modify that one to your liking
18:22
<gp>
Thanks
19:07
I am getting an error I must be a member of the epoptes group to run the program. Trying to read through the docs but is there a way to add allowed groups? I.e. anyone in the domain_admin group?

alkisg: Got my user added to the epoptes group. Was having trouble with gpasswd accepting the username and had to add it manually to
