<ltspguy>
I'm trying to use a 32bit ubuntu 16.04 for thin client. I created the image file ubuntu-ltsp.vmdk with Virtualbox.
12:58
root@tequila:/srv/ltsp# lsimages ubuntu-ltsp.img
12:59
root@tequila:/srv/ltsp# lsimages ubuntu-ltsp.img
12:59
oops
13:00
root@tequila:/srv/ltsp# ltsp image ubuntu-ltsp.img LTSP command failed: blkid -po export /srv/ltsp/ubuntu-ltsp.imgAborting ltspI don't know how to mount /srv/ltsp/ubuntu-ltsp.img
13:00
the command part is: ltsp image ubuntu-ltsp.img
13:01
the rest of that is the output
13:01
how can i fix this
13:02
it is symlinked to the location of the original vm image
13:05
i was going to use the chrootless method, but my thin clients are 32 bit cpu, and my server is 64cpu. so i thought I'd try the virtual box method

<ltspguy>
so when i originally tried to boot the thin client it said "This kernel requires x86-64 cpu, but only detected i686 cpu. Unable to boot
13:08
<alkisg_web>
ltspguy, what's the output of: file ltsp-ubuntu-flat.vmdk?
13:09
<ltspguy>
no such file
13:10
<alkisg_web>
Its in your vm folder
13:10
Cd there first
13:11
About chrootless, you'd need a 32 bit installation on the server
13:11
<ltspguy>
ubuntu-ltsp.vmdk: VMware4 disk image
13:12
<alkisg_web>
Its not suitable
13:12
It should be fixed size
13:12
<ltspguy>
ah.. i make it dynamic
13:13
<alkisg_web>
So that it would show msdos boot sector, disk
13:13
<ltspguy>
ok i'll trash that vm and make a new one that's fixed
13:14
thanks
13:15
<alkisg_web>
You could also clone it, bit sure new is also fast
13:19
<ltspguy>
ok, i will try clone in vbox

Hi, my clients are getting "ltsp/ltsp.ipxe":
16:10
No such file or directory. When I try to pull it with tftp from the same client running on a local hard disk, it works fine
16:10
I have tried swapping in tftpd-hpa for dnsmasq, which didn't change the problem.
16:11
It loads iPXE fine via undionly.kpxe, then fails
