I have a question about LTSP and I think this is the place to ask it, right?
I would like to create an image (chrooted) in which the users and passwords created in it are kept.
That is, the passwd, shadow, etc. files will not be modified.
Is it possible to get what I am asking for? Thank you!
uibsysadmin: my first question would be why do you want to do that?
embedding the users and passwords in the image has security implications ... anyone on your network will have access to that information

Hi, vagrantc. Thanks for your quick response
there may be some other way of accomplishing your goals...
Our clients must autologin and display only one web page in full screen. There are no more applications, no more documents to save, and once the pc is turned off, everything is deleted.
so basically a kiosk sort of setup
you shouldn't need any passwords at all, then ... just write some hooks to add your user at boot
and configure it for autologin...
https://ltsp.org/man/ltsp.conf/ search for autologin ... for the autologin part
|22:25||uibsysadmin has left IRC (email@example.com, Quit: Client closed)|
probably add an FSTAB_x entry to mount the homedir as tmpfs ... a POST_INIT_x to add the user ...
|22:27||uibsysadmin has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
Without creating users neither in the server nor in the image? :O
see the part about FSTAB... and POST_INIT...
or maybe you don't need the FSTAB bit ... just something like POST_INIT_USER01=adduser --disabled-password --gecos ,,, user01
that might populate /home/user01 sufficiently that it will not try to mount /home via sshfs
otherwise, you might have to mount /home as tmpfs or something
What if the user and his home are already created in the image? Is that enough?
that could work, but then you have to workaround the fact that ltsp deletes all that :)
which may be possible ... but why do you need that?
easier to paddle with the river than against it
What solution would you use?
set AUTOLOGIN and POST_INIT_USER01 in ltsp.conf ... and maybe an FSTAB_XX entry as well, if needed
I only need a browser that displays a web page, and little else.
you'll need to crate a custom .desktop file for that user as well, probably ...
to be able to specify your webbrowser-only environment ... but that is a more complicated subject
first just get autologin and user creation from ltsp.conf working, then move on to more complicated things
Don't worry about that! Is resolved yet! :D
My clients are VDI thinclients.
like i say, get the basics working first ... move onto more complicated stuff once you have that
Thanks a lot, vagrant. I will put your advice into practice tomorrow. Now it's time to sleep. It's too late!
there are other people around earlier in the day too :)
