Good morning!!! I use LTSP with Raspberry Pi since... a lot of time. I was going to update my mix of RPI getting new RPi4. However, there is a crazy shortage of them and there are no option to get them in Spain unless you are willing to pay as much as >200 € each.
So I am thinking about switching to another board. Is there any board that could work with my current LTSP without having to reinstall all the boards OS?
I've been offered with RockPi 4 C+ but there is almonst no information after searching in the IRC logs.
Any help would be much appreciated
antares_gades: are you sure you don't want a classic x86 mini-pc? https://www.aliexpress.com/category/70803003/mini-pc.html
You can get them cheaper than rpi4, and they're at least 10 times faster, even if you get refurbished ones
That would be so nice, and in the future I'm even thinking about getting panel PC's (our application needs watertight enclosures and panel pc's are a great solution) but because I work for a gov. agency trying to get the mini-pc would bury me in red tape for ever. RPI's are a nice way to override silly paperwork issues and they are sufficient for us now.
However, I fully agree with you about what's ideal and what is a reasonable solution
I think someone here booted rockpro64 with ltsp. I'm not sure about the other boards. In general if they can get debian they should be bootable, even if it'll take some time to configure uboot
Do search "netbooting <boardname" before buying it
If you can netboot it with debian, it'll be rather easy to add ltsp to the mix
OK, I was unable to access here for a while!!! Anyway, maybe it looks promising... There is some info about it and mybe it is matter of egtting one of those and try. Maybe this can make sense to you, look slike it is possible without much effort.
OK. Note that they might NOT support proxydhcp, which means that in that case, you need full control over your dhcp server, it can't be a cheap router
In my setup I host the DHCP dnsmasq) in the server, only using switches
could it suffice?
Well, then it is matter of getting one of those boards and see what happens. I'll keep you people updated. Thanks a lot
Good luck! :)
