If I wanted to add an ISO to the LTSP 20.1 iPXE menu such as "system rescue cd" is this possible?
03:19
I have created a GRUB menu for the latest System Rescue CD but cannot see how to add this to the menu. https://github.com/map7/write_usb/blob/master/grub.cfg
03:19
I could use some of this in the ltsp.ipxe does anyone have any examples of doing this?

alkisg, with new ltsp, my users cannot run a snap application, getting error "cannot create user data directory: /homes/smithd/snap/tmcbeans/5: Permission Denied"
17:04
The dir exists and is 755 for smithd
17:15
<alkisg>
/homes? how is that shared?
17:18
<JuJUBee>
I am not 100% sure if it is sshfs or nfs, how can I verify?
17:19
Ah, in fstab I have a UUID=... /homes/ext4 defaults 0 2 just like I did in the prev version I was using.
17:19
In /etc/passwd their home points to /homes/
17:22
<alkisg>
Where is that uuid, local disk?
17:23
<JuJUBee>
That uuid is from the second virtual disk
17:25
Do I need to add to /etc/exports?
17:28
<alkisg>
I'm not sure how you're mounting this on the client
17:28
Login to the client and run mount to see
17:33
<JuJUBee>
smithd@server: on /homes/smithd type fuse.sshfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other)
17:34
<alkisg>
JuJUBee: temporarily try with NFS home; another try would be with a user in /home
17:34
snap configures apparmor to only allow network access in certain directories
17:34
And it's possible that they allow /home, but not /homes
17:34
<JuJUBee>
so my user is in /home and I can run the snap app
17:34
<alkisg>
OK, then you'd need to configure snap to add another apparmor exception
17:34
It's not an ltsp issue
17:35
<JuJUBee>
OK, thanks
17:35
<alkisg>
I think they have a forum that you could ask
17:36
<quinox>
https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/how-can-i-use-snap-when-i-dont-use-home-user/3352
17:38
<alkisg>
Ty quinox; JuJUBee, it would be nice to have a wiki page in the ltsp wiki for that :)
17:41
E.g. https://github.com/ltsp/community/wiki/snap

alkisg, would I be better off mounting that second disk on /home instead of this workaround? which, btw, zyga says I cannot do...
17:59
<alkisg>
I don't know what zyga is
18:08
<JuJUBee>
sorry, zyga is a user in #snappy that seems to be the expert.
18:13
<alkisg>
JuJUBee: then sure, just use /home normally instead of something else
18:21
<highvoltage>
/win 23
18:39
<JuJUBee>
alkisg, so I change the line in fstab to mount to /home instead of /homes. I changed etc/passwd for my user to /home rebooted the server and client. The user logged in and their home directory is still showing in /homes but on the server /homes is empty...?
18:40
<alkisg>
ltsp initrd
18:40
to update the ltsp client passwd
18:41
<JuJUBee>
crap, totally forgot... Thanks.
