LTSP on Debian: Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I use the ltsp-utils package with ltsp-server(-standalone)? (as of 11.04.2007 / Debian Etch)

A) No, the ltsp-utils package is from LTSP version 4 and the ltsp-server(-standalone) is version 5.

Q. If I specify SCREEN_01 through 06 in lts.conf (/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf) my keyboard doesn't work.

A) SCREEN_01 through 06 conflicts with inittab. Either comment out the getty lines on tty1 through tty6 in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/inittab or do not use SCREEN_01 to SCREEN_06.

Q. Where can I get more information on LTSP 5 MueKow?

A1) LTSP5: http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/Ltsp5

A2) The MueKow experiments evolved into LTSP5: http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/MueKow - no deeper information but only primary goals (as of 11.04.2007).

Q. LOCAL_STORAGE in lts.conf doesn't work. Why?

A) In LTSP 5 it is called LOCALDEV. See also: LTSP/Upgrading_4.2

Q. How do I configure boot prompt options?

A) See Debian bug 428446. Create /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/update-kernels.conf with the following line (adapt to your needs):

export BOOTPROMPT_OPTS="root=/dev/nfs ip=dhcp nfsroot=/opt/ltsp/i386"
And create a symlink for backwards compatibility:
ln -s /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/update-kernels.conf /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-kernels.conf
