Will I be able to use my current thinclient config in future versions or not anymore?

Basinator: no, distributions don't support 32bit anymore
08:38
You need to stay with older versions that support 32 bit
08:44gdi2k has joined IRC (gdi2k!~gdi2k@58.69.160.27)
08:48
<Basinator>
But would 64 bit thin clients still work?
08:48
<alkisg>
Why would you run 64bit clients as thin clients?
08:49
The idea is that no, they won't work unless you use vnc, rdp, x2go etc. If there's a use case where this is needed, I'd like to hear about it.
08:50
I.e. you'll be able to use ltsp to netboot clients, and then you'll be able to use vnc/rdp/x2go to make them "thin clients", i.e. remote desktop clients
08:53
Note that I'll probably have the new ltsp version, ltsp19, ready in September; so it will take a while to reach the distributions. E.g. it's possible that Ubuntu 20.04 will ship with the old LTSP.
09:02
(I may even deliberately do that, so that 20.04 users have both ltsp options, either with or without the ppa)

gdi2k: local-boot: If you want LTSP fat clients on a low-speed network, you can put i386.img on e.g. C:\Boot\LTSP\i386.img and use this command line in pxelinux.cfg: APPEND ro initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img init=/sbin/init-ltsp root=/dev/sda1 rootflags=ro loop=/Boot/LTSP/i386.img; IPAPPEND 3

hey, alkisg: a few weeks back you had posted the name of an ldap server (it wasn't openldap or freeIPA), any chance you remember what that was?
12:57
might've not been ldap... but some form of centralized auth system
12:57
Finally circling back around to this
13:03
<Hyperbyt1>
mwalters, 389-ds perhaps?
13:17
<alkisg>
mwalters: I haven't used ldap, so I'm not sure that was me. Maybe samba?

haven't tried this but this might also be useful for future ltsp implementations https://drewdevault.com/2019/04/23/Using-cage-for-a-seamless-RDP-Wayland-desktop.html

alright so stretch seems to be a little different in tftp setup than my previous ubuntu setup.
22:19
I'm trying to get the tftp stuff working again, but not sure where lts.conf should actually be placed the manpage is a bit ambiguous on how the client actually looks for it
22:19
it's just in a notes section at the bottom but doesn't spell out what the deterministic path checks are
22:20
on my new system th default tfpt directory has swapped over to /srv/tftp/ so I'm using that as the root now
22:20
and I'm not server i386 images so putting the file in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/ seems wrong.
22:20
sering*
22:23
ahh I see getltscfg -a can check the file. looks like I do have it in the right spot I guess since it's getting pulled into /etc/lts.conf on the client
22:33
ahh I think my issue is the newer ltsp packages need ldm-server
22:34
ldminfod isn't in inetd.conf
