<jeremy3811>
is there a reason why ssh service is masked in /usr/share/ltsp/client/init/56-mask-services.sh?
04:49
<alkisg>
jeremy3811: yes, any service with public secrets in the exported image is unsafe
04:49
I.e. the ssh keys
04:50
quinox: (1) at this point you're supposed to completely disable pam_ltsp using OMIT_FUNCTIONS
04:51
Search for OMIT_FUNCTIONS site:github.com/ltsp for discussions about this
04:51
(2) man ltsp.conf, go to the EXAMPLES at the end, and see one way to provide a *local* root password
04:51
You don't want them to use the server root password and enable root ssh access; a local root shadow entry is a lot more safer
04:52
(3) search for ssh port site:github.com/ltsp/ltsp, you'll need a "POST_INIT_..=...sed" parameter for now
04:53
(4) if accountsservice is installed, then that info is saved in /var/lib/AccountsService/user...., which isn't mounted from the server, thus not saved
04:53
Otherwise, ~/.dmrc is used, which is
04:54
(5) POST_INIT runs very early; POST_SERVICE_x runs later on, similiar to the deprecated RCFILE, so start by testing POST_SERVICE_x

<jeremy3811>
got it, thank you
05:07
<alkisg>
jeremy3811: that's why epoptes is using reverse connections, which require only the public key on the clients, not the private key
05:07
<jeremy3811>
ok that makes sense
05:33
<alkisg>
urly, to set the default keyboard layout, run `sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration` either on the server if you're using chrootless, or in the chroot

quinox: you need a manual entry similar to that ^ for ltsp5
10:25
The key part is init=/sbin/init-ltsp
