<eu^62249362dslxi>
good morning, I have a 64-bit ubuntu based operating system (linux mint 20.1) and I want to offer the clients a 32-bit bootimage.  I understand that I need to run the command "ltsp image x86_32". I get the message "Image does not exist: x86_32".How can I run a 32-bit client on my 64-bit server?  Greetings Tobias

Good morning
06:06
eu^62249362dslxi: you can type "/nick tobias" to change your nickname if you want (without the quotes)
06:07
You'll need to install virtualbox. Then you'll need to install ubuntu 18.04 32bit (or mint) inside a VM
06:07
When vbox prompts you for a disk, select "vmdk, fixed size"
06:08
Then you'll run: sudo ln -s "/home/tobias/VirtualBox VMs/your-image/your-image-flat.vmdk" /srv/ltsp/x86_32.img
06:08
THEN `ltsp image x86_32` will work
06:16
<eu^62249362dslxi>
thank you I'm trying now ...I'll get back to you
06:58
shall i give the command: sudo ln -s "/home/tobias/VirtualBox VMs/linux mint 32/linux mint 32-flat.vmdk" /srv/ltsp/x86_32.img in the VM or the real machine?
06:59
<alkisg>
On the ltsp server
07:01
<eu^62249362dslxi>
the ltsp server is running in the VM right? i do not have ltsp installed in the real machine.
07:02
<alkisg>
What is the real machine OS?
07:09
<eu^62249362dslxi>
linux mint 64-bit 20.1 cinnamon
07:11
<alkisg>
Does it have virtualbox installed?
07:11
Is ltsp server a virtualbox vm? Does it run linuxmint 64bit as well?
07:12
And where did you put the ltsp client, as a separate virtualbox vm?
07:12
(the client image, the 32bit one)
07:20
<eu^62249362dslxi>
now i have created a VM with linux mint 32-bit (linux mint 19.3). the ltsp server is running in this VM. the real machine has linux mint 64-bit (linux mint 20.1) installed. the ltsp client is a real machine (old laptop) with 32-bit CPU. it is connected via the lan network.
07:21
<alkisg>
eu^62249362dslxi: if I understood you correctly, you deleted your 64bit ltsp server VM and you created a new 32bit ltsp server VM
07:21
Then you don't need any symlinks etc, you can just run `ltsp image /` inside the 32bit ltsp server VM
07:23
The basic question is: Where do you want to have the ltsp user accounts and their /home? In bare metal or in the ltsp server VM?
07:28
<eu^62249362dslxi>
i understood you to say that i should create a 32-bit VM because that's the only way it works. So I created a new 32-bit VM and deleted the 64-bit VM. What do you mean by bare metal?
07:28
<alkisg>
Bare metal is the "real pc"
07:28
(10:23:28 AM) alkisg: The basic question is: Where do you want to have the ltsp user accounts and their /home? In bare metal or in the ltsp server VM?
07:30
<eu^62249362dslxi>
if it is possible, i would like to install the ltsp server first on the VM for testing purposes and later on the real pc when i understand everything. So I want to create the user accounts first in the VM
07:31
<alkisg>
Now you have only one 32bit virtual machine, correct?
07:31
Then just run the "chrootless" command insite it: ltsp image /
07:31
<eu^62249362dslxi>
yes
07:31
<alkisg>
Remember to put the VM in "bridged networking mode"
07:32
<eu^62249362dslxi>
yes this i found out by a few tryings xD

<eu^62249362dslxi>
ok it works. thank you. I would like to ask again out of interest. in what case do i need the symlink? is it the case when i run the ltsp server on the real machine?
07:56
<alkisg>
Yes
08:00
<eu^62249362dslxi>
ok thanks. do i have to keep the virtual machine running in this case or is the virtual machine only there to create the bootimages? because in this configuration as i have it now, i have to keep the VM running.
08:01
<alkisg>
In that case, you won't have to keep the VM running
08:02
<eu^62249362dslxi>
ok thanks. can i donate something for your help?
08:03
<alkisg>
eu^62249362dslxi: sure, you can send me donations to my paypal, alkisg at gmail dot com, thank you :)
