G'day everyone. I am having some issues. I installed LTSP and built a client, but on PXE boot I get an error. Can anyone help? pic related: https://i.imgur.com/2ixxbO0.png
umhello: distro/version/howto that you followed?
Start with: sudo ltsp-info | nc termbin.com 9999
the official tutorial was followed
except with the option of --fatclient-desktop lubuntu-desktop in ltsp-build-client
the command says No LSB modules are available.
The command also says a termbin.com/qwer url
That's what is needed
ah yes one sec
OK first of all you don't have the ppa in your chroot
yeah I think I might not have it is that a problem
But not the one you show in the screenshot
Did you run all the steps, configure dnsmasq and all?
Are you using proxydhcp or read dhcp?
Describe your setup a bit more
so uh just now I did the ltsp-config dnsmasq--noproxy-dhcp thing with the wget
from the tutorial
and restarted network-manager
same error still
also I kinda have no idea what the diff between proxydhcp and read dhcp is
but basically what my setup is
so I have this server on digitalocean (which I connect to directly through openvpn, allowing for dhcp)
and I need to use a virtualbox machine to use it for pxe boot
the dhcp technically works since it's not endlessly loading but I see the error
but the fact the error is a thing is a problem :D
any ideas on what could be done :/
any other information I could supply that could help?
also offtopic but when will the website be back up

umhello: I didn't understand your setup
You have a remote server and a VM client inside that remove server?
Why don't you test ltsp locally first, so that you understand how it works, before trying fancy stuff?
yeah I think I kind of realized I might of messed up the pxe part by using nat
currently wondering though
it is possible to use ltsp on a remote server right
like, have a computer from another ip connect to a server with ltsp and use it as a fat client
umhello: this makes no sense, you need lan bandwidth for that
Use x2go or rdp for remote servers
If/when houses get gbps connections to the internet, then it might be doable
so x2go can be then used for a fat client like setup right
cause basically I'd need to have remote fat clients, and been thinking if that can be done with ltsp
umhello: do "fat clients" mean "netbooted operating system" for you?
x2go is "remote desktop, from a local disk/os to a remote pc"
What do your clients have? E.g. if they have windows already, then use x2go/rdp, not ltsp
Describe your hardware and the connections involved. How many clients, how many servers, how many users, bandwidth, existing OS etc
well kind of. the idea was to use virtual machines that could connect to the server with ltsp since it allows for having each user access their files on the vm and also have the list of applications and stuff like that they would have centralised
so a netbooted os that would be used as a fat client is a nice thing to have

umhello: so you're playing with some idea, or are you trying to deploy something specific to your computer labs etc?
OK, please answer the questions above then...
How many users, bandwidth, etc etc
I answered the idea part, "bad idea", but maybe something in your specific situation isn't exactly like I think it is, and it might help you
bandwidth - 1 tb on the server per month for now but that's because it's in testing. the internet is pretty fast here so that's not a problem
users - at the moment a few, but would be increased into 10+ later. the idea was basically to use this as a working environment
like, remote work environment.

is your internet speed 100 mbps? 10 mbps? 1000 mbps?
~100 if connected to the server over vpn
umhello: how are the clients going to boot over vpn?
They need an OS first, to get vpn
well, the idea was to use virtual machines as the working environment
so the host os would be connected to the vpn
If you already have an OS, why on earth would you NETBOOT another os?
Instead of just remote desktoping into it?
What is the host os, windows, linux?
remote desktoping into it would be more resource intensive for the server though
You'd need 1 gbps ram per client or so
Loading libreoffice needs 150 mb
That's megabyte, not megabits per second or anything else
So, suppose that 10 users need to open libreoffice
That means that they'd need to download 1.5 GB from your server
Time it. In how much time can your server send 1.5 GB? E.g. in 1 minute?
Is it acceptable for libreoffice to open in 1 minute?
I think that you'd need a script for local synching of the VM
That way, your / would be local, and your /home remote
That would save a lot bandwidth, and would be rather acceptable
