or possibly: ssh $server ltsp-chroot --chroot $myteam apt-get install foo && ssh $server ltsp-update-image /opt/ltsp/$myteam
if not exactly that, something basically like that
then reboot their client to get the updated software
but they remote into the main server itself and install the software, then build the image and reboot back into that instance
you could give them privledges to install locally to experiment to make sure that's what they need ...
to me, i'd just build debian packages out of whatever projects you're using and use sbuild with schroot, or pbuilder ...
then you have to define what the build-dependencies of your project are, and then sbuild or pbuilder installs those build-dependencies in a chroot and builds your project
and spits out an installable .deb

Hello there! I'm trying to use a fresh install of Ubuntu Mate x64 (with updates) with LTSP-manager. But every time on client side I ended with this repeated message: Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... done.
After 15-20 lines it ended with (initramfs): random: crng init done
Does anyone know any fix or maybe workaround?
Eugene_: that usually means that you didn't apply all of the wiki page
It has a section there for ipappend and for nbd, which are the 2 most common causes of the error you're mentioning
thanks I also thinks it's about nbd but still didn't find the solution
Eugene_: run this:
vnc-edide: To share your screen with me, open Epoptes → Help menu → Remote support → Host: srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr, and click the Connect button
(anyway bbl, ping me before running it to see if I'm here :))
not sure I'm able to launch that.. feeling me so newbie
Epopte shows me Permission denied / must be a member of Epoptes group though I'm already there
Eugene_: that means you haven't read the ltsp-manager wiki pages
Eugene_: please run them all again...
Eugene_: I'll be back and available for help later on, maybe in 40 mins...
vnc-dide: To share your screen with me, run this: sudo apt-get --yes install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr - this is a reverse connection, it doesn't need port forwarding etc.
At that point, you'll be able to use that to share your screen with me, if you still haven't read the wiki pages then

thanks alkisg I seemd to set epoptes correctly and add you to remote support channel
I did read and install LTSP fix from oficial wiki page, update LTSP image afterwards but nothing changed
|12:43||forum has joined IRC (forum!~Thunderbi@62-47-178-104.adsl.highway.telekom.at)|
Eugene_: so, the problem is that you followed the ipappend step afterwards
|12:43||forum has left IRC (forum!~Thunderbi@62-47-178-104.adsl.highway.telekom.at, Client Quit)|
I.e. you followed some of the wiki steps but not all of them, and LATER you went and run some of them again, but not in order
Boot a client now, it should work
(you had ipappend 2 instead of ipappend 3)
yes you're right.. Instead of doing everything in order, I'm trying now to fix something
hmmm.. unfortunately nothing changed
how may I show you the client screen?
among others, it says /dev/nbd0 does not exist. Dropping to shell. Probably that may be an issue
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems - Boot args / Check root delay / Check root / missing modules
Eugene_: I restarted your nbd-server in case you created the conf file afterwards
(again not following the steps in order)
Try to boot a client again
in fact, I've been trying to make it work for a week already, starting with the server version
Yeah next time just follow the steps exactly, it takes 1 hour including the os installation :)
but due to lack of knowledge this took time))
Nah. People that lack knowledge follow instructions, those that know a bit, think they can ignore them :P
Veeeery usual here with teachers :D
|13:16||* alkisg supports 1000+ schools here|
its really impressive
ooopss.. it daoesn't work again.. i'm really sorry
Eugene_: ok let me see with virtalbox
because i need to leave asap...
Eugene_: are you connecting the client to the second nic directly, without a switch?
nbd-client: To try mounting the NBD image from the client initramfs: nbd-client 192.168.67.1 -N /opt/ltsp/i386 /dev/nbd0

Eugene_: you didn't follow the nbd-server commands at http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager/Installation
All is ready, I'm off, bye
