<alkisg>
I just implemented using .isos instead of chroots/images. I.e. one can download ubuntu.iso in /srv/ltsp/images/x86_64.img, run `ltsp kernel x86_64` (takes 1 second), and have the clients boot with it, with proper authentication, sshfs or nfs home etc.
05:18
It currently works with all ubuntu live isos (which cover mint as well) and debian live isos.
05:18
Question: are there any other distributions out there, that use systemd and .debs, and that offer live cds, so that I add support for them too?

Hey alkisg :-) I just had a thought. Didn't you say that NDB swap is arranged automatically in never versions of LTSP?
08:24
As in, enabled?
08:24
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: nope, the opposite. The new ltsp doesn't use nbd anywhere at all
08:25
NBD_SWAP was arranged in ltsp5
08:25
(well if you mean "ltsp5" with "newer versions", you're out of date :D)
08:33
<Hyperbyte>
Ah, okay

alkisg: So to diable the user list you can follow the instructions at: https://help.gnome.org/admin/system-admin-guide/stable/login-userlist-disable.html.en
08:55
I'm not sure how to include that into ltsp though.
08:56
It works to just do those and recreate the image

alkisg: Do the live isos still autologin as the default user as they normally do or have you got a way of disabling that?

<alkisg>
uumas: the live isos are booted using the ltsp code, NOT the casper/liveboot code
13:02
Thus, they behave like any ltsp chroot/image
13:02
I.e. they show the user list, you can enable passwordless logins, autologins or whatever, like with any other ltsp image

Usually I follow minor Ubuntu releases, it was a bit busy this year so I'm still at 18.04
14:18* alkisg is testing the new ltsp in 18.04 too
14:18
<alkisg>
(and I don't follow non-lts releases)

Hi paulo5

<paulo5>
i need to connect my ltsp clients to a RDS 2016 farm
16:51
using one TS Broker
16:52
is this option supported?
16:52
<alkisg>
I think it's more of a linux question than an ltsp question
16:52
What is the command to do this in a normal linux installation?
16:52
<paulo5>
ok, i´ll check that
16:53
<alkisg>
OK, once you figure out how to do it in a normal linux installation, then if there's anything ltsp-specific, we can tell you how to do that additional part
16:54
<paulo5>
ok, thanks
