Hi, i'm new to ltsp and triing to get it work for some days now. i have ubuntu 18.4 desktop and followed the installation steps from the wiki for chrootless clients. i have a raspberry pi with berryterminal that i want to use as client. when starting the rpi, i get a login screen. when i try to login i get the message "no response from server, restarting". on the server i found "sshd: Connection closed by authenticating user xxx
09:09
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port xxxxx [preauth] in auth.log. does someone have an idea whats going wrong?

!ltsp-update-sshkeys | echo mze:
09:44
<ltsp>
mze: ltsp-update-sshkeys: If you changed your server IP, you need to run ltsp-update-sshkeys, and if you're using NBD (Ubuntu) you also need ltsp-update-image afterwards
09:45
<alkisg>
mze, it could be that
09:47
Although note that berryterminal is using an ancient ltsp version afaik, which might even be incompatible
09:50
<mze>
thanks for the advice. didnt work :(. same behavior.
09:50
is there a other way to try ltsp with raspberry pi?
09:52
<alkisg>
!raspberrypi
09:52
<ltsp>
raspberrypi: (#1) Ubuntu/LTSP on Pi 2: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/RaspberryPi, or (#2) Debian/LTSP (with raspbian chroot) on Pi: http://cascadia.debian.net/trenza/Documentation/raspberrypi-ltsp-howto/, or (#3) unofficial Ubuntu/LTSP (with raspbian chroot) on Pi: http://pinet.org.uk/
09:53
<alkisg>
Unfortunately LTSP is having a big update now, from version 5 to version 19, and raspberry pi isn't yet ready for the new ltsp 19, where it would be much easier
09:54
and version 5 isn't very actively maintained, so.. (#1) and (#3) should work, but they might need a bit of tinkering
09:54
The best way would be to use ltsp 19 with raspbian chroot, but it's not documented yet
09:58
<mze>
all options using raspbian/arm chroot? i'd like to use chrootless because of not linking raspbian gui much and i would like to use some old windows apps with wine
09:59
but thanks i'll read and maybe try
09:59
<alkisg>
mze, chrootless means that raspbian has intel/amd cpu
09:59
*raspberry
10:00
Which it doesn't, so you can't use chrootless
10:00
Now you *think* you're using chrootless, but you're not, you're using the "berryterminal chroot" in the sd card
10:00
You can however make the raspberry pi function as a thin client, and connect to the server (like remote desktop), and run x86 applications there, wine and all
10:01
<mze>
confused :D
10:04
what could be the minimal setup for the pi that boots him to the remote login as a thin client?
10:05
<alkisg>
This is called a "thin chroot". It's what berryterminal also does, but it puts it to the sd card instead of the server
10:05
All those #3 options above support both thin and fat mode
10:06
A fat chroot can also work as a thin chroot
10:06
LTSP_FATCLIENT=False in lts.conf is all that is needed for that switch
10:07
It's also possible to run some applications locally and some remotely, using `ltsp-localapps`
