hank7, I have some time now if you're around
awesome. Yes i have time
so i need to open epotes from my ltsp server and put that info you put earlier, correct?
i connected in epoptes
hank7, all ok, you just needed to apt update ltsp
you had the old 19.12 one instead of the new 20.01
oh ok.. good to know. I will try booting up the diskless workstation once the current process is done and post results.
Thank you so much for your help. It is much appreciated.
ok thin client is booting up now
ok it gave the same error as before: Image doesnt exist /root/images/newubuntu-ltsp.img
ltsp command failed mount_img_src /root/images/newubuntu-ltsp.img /root
aborting ltsp, enable DEBUG_SHELL to troubleshoot
is it looking for the image in the wrong directory?

hank7, try `sudo ltsp ipxe`
i did that and reboot thin client but same
well actually not same, different errors
That keyerror doesn't sound like an ltsp error
Can you take a photo?
yes, where can i put photo for you to see?
haha ok.. i thought maybe it can be through the irc.. ok
let me get a link

hank7, sounds like you have a broken passwd file, did you ever edit it manually?
run pwck etc on the server to check its integrity
I have not edit it.
user 'nagios': no group 999
correct that, then run `ltsp initrd`, then reboot client
i used to have that application on this machine. ok ill look at that
hank7, passwd can't have comments
OK let me fix it
oh ok i ran deluser nagios and it said no user
Also, #www-data is wrong too
hank7, don't edit it now
let me fix it
hank7, ok try to boot the client now
Yay! I got a login screen.
thanks so much. This really should be a dedicated server and not other services.
runnign at the same time
You're welcome :)
the desktop is slow. i suspect it is this old thin client though.. diskless workstation 1720
The new ltsp doesn't support "thin clients", only "fat clients"
The specifications are the same as normal ubuntu installations
Core i3 etc should be fine
fat clients, meaning like a normal desktop.
i got somehting unexpected for me. I'm thinking that this is how it works but I'm just ignorant/learning. On my ltsp server I have a user, erik. When I boot up the thin client and login as erik, I can see files that are on my desktop on the ltsp server. I was thinking that it got all that from the virtual machine image. For example, the user(s) I created on the virtual machine in virtualbox, i thought these were the users that were going to be presented to the
hank7, this is by design. Create users on the server. The VM is only the programs, not users nor home.
Ok. so to install programs, i'd need boot up the VM, install app, shutdown the VM, and run ltsp image myimage.img. Do i have that right?
can this be done whilst users are logged in to clients, or should they log off for admin to install apps?

Hello everyone, I have no idea what I did wrong. In a fresh OS installation (Ubuntu 19.10 and Uuntu MATE 18.04) I followed the steps from here https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/ (CHROOTLESS) The client goes directly to the iPXE boot menu and only Memory test and other but there isn't the image created to boot. Please any idea what am I doing
