<antares_>
Good morning!! I've followed the instrucions on the wiki to set up a LTSP server. Also I've followd the same for making raspberry pi clients
05:22
However, I couldn't make them work.
05:24
Looks like vmlinuz and/or initramsfs don't work.
05:24
At first I got stuck at rainbow screen, Changing some parameters I've been able to start boot but it hungs.
05:26
Well, the question is: Which vmlinuz and initramfs should I use? Or how should I focus my questions to this forum to get an answer?

I don't know more than that, but do stick around and someone with more knowledge / experience will probably show up and give help

<antares_>
quinox: thanks a lot. In fact, the first link is where I got the directions for it without success. I'm trying the second one, let see

<alkisg>
antares_: I wrote the first page there, and the ltsp code that all those methods use, but it's been a while since I last tested LTSP on raspberry pi, so issues might have arisen in the meantime. If you can't make it work, and you need professional support for it, I'm available.

Hi
12:56
Does LTSP render graphics etc on the server or on the clients?

!fatclients
13:02
<ltsp>
fatclients: Nowadays LTSP supports thin and fat clients. They are both diskless and netbooted from the same LTSP chroot, but while thin clients run the session on the server and transfer the screen, fat clients run the session locally with their own CPU/RAM, thus performing amazingly better. See also !ltsp-pnp and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FatClients
13:02
<alkisg>
Bas_: read this ^
13:02
ltsp thin clients = remote desktop, ltsp fat clients = remote desktop
13:06
<fiesh>
so, by the transitivity of equality, ltsp thin clients = ltsp fat clients
13:06
<alkisg>
*fat = remote disk, i mean
13:06
<fiesh>
:-)

<alkisg>
Thin clients run the application on the server, and render it via network/xorg to the client
13:55
So it's a remote display, not a local one; but it's not rendered on the server either
