I tried to install ltsp to Ubuntu 14.04 with nonpae kernel. I installed PPA and seems ltsp-pnp command no longer exists, so tried ltsp-update-image --cleanup / -method, but it says ltsp-cleanup is missing. Did I miss some package?
muppis-: I don't think I ever published ltsp in the ppa for 14.04
It was 12.04=full, 14.04=none, 16.04=little, 18.04=full
Why are you sticking to a release that will expire in a few months?
It's latest that I founded with nonpae kernel as hw really misses pae support.
Have you tried with forcepae?
Yes, with no luck.
Which cpu is it?
Btw, if you're trying ltsp-pnp, you missed installing the ltsp-client package on the server
I wonder what's the situation about pae on debian
I guess though, if you only have thin clients and no fats at all, you could just run ltsp-build-client and create a thin chroot
In PPA there's ltsp package with version 5.5.7~r2732+p1249+201603261523~ubuntu14.04.1 ;)
Probably just testing; we never installed any schools with 14.04
I just reinstalled whole system and running apt upgrade. It's a slow machine.
jessie-backports has ltsp 5.5.8
So you're using ltsp with a single client?
One as server and 5 as clients. Identical machines.
Better to use 18.04 on the server, and create a 14.04 chroot
This way you'll have recent firefox and all
Main goal is to try how Dosbox performs in these machines.
So no real use, just test and if possible to play some old dos games with kids.
To build pnp-client I need ltsp-server and ltsp-client installed on server?
Yes. How much ram do the clients have?
Oh wow, then you're planning to make them fat clients, ok
Well, if runs well.
Yeah then 14.04 or jessie, with ltsp-pnp, are the best choices
Now it says no aufs or overlayfs detected even both are installed.

Merry christimas :)
mmarconm, merry christmas for you too.
I think that missing pae support is short of show stopper for now.

Without --cleanup starts to build the image. Seems that special build kernel doesn't have overlayfs module, so cleanup isn't possible.
muppis-: sudo modprobe overlay; sudo modprobe overlayfs; lsmod | grep overlay
This will tell you if overlay is supported
alkisg, I did that already. Whole file is missing.
So that kernel has no overlay and no overlayfs and no aufs modules?
LTSP needs one of those 3
All of those 3 are missing.
Get another kernel then
What's the kernel name? uname -a?
That's not really uname -a...
Anyway, get another kernel
It not much more. Linux nonpae 3.13.0-nonpae #2 SMP Thu Apr 24 02:35:19 BST 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux
As it's a custom build kernel but not by me and I'm sure do I build proper one as being fun project anyway.
I took vanilla 12.04 non-pae installer and if I don't get working with that, I either abandon the idea or try with Windows XP.
You can also test with jessie
12.04 should work fine, many schools here still use it

|19:03||* alkisg will need to change the path to sch-scripts, and synchronize the change...|
(lts-el.conf, dnsmasq-el.conf etc)
Image build nicely. Need to set up real enviroment, used VirtualBox for building.
alkisg: i tried to make it backwards-compatible, but i guess it doesn't quite fallback for locale-specific files
alkisg: sorry for the trouble
No worries, it shouldn't take more than a couple of lines
i accidentally built it with the nodoc profile, which caused it to not include those files, which resulted in a non-useable ltsp-config
which, was good to see that it broke in that way, as that is a legitimate, if corner-case, build
ltsp is working much better with Debian now, so that's good
alkisg: thanks, as usual, for all your great work on it :)
Thank you too! Marry Christmas btw! :D
Happy belated solstice!
