Making Fat Client

  1. Followed instructions on: and used the .conf install.
  2. Since I already had a working LTSP server working I skipped step of creating one--seemed fine.
  3. Next made backup of /opt/ltsp/i386 with cp -r -p /opt/ltsp/i386 (into my Documents folder).
  4. Had to rename the current i386 to i386-thin
  5. Then did the install, just changing the option to install the edubuntu-desktop (from ubuntu-desktop).
  6. Seemed to work fine.
  7. Made the script file to ease of install of other programs into the fat client chroot.
  8. Installed htop and locate seemed to work fine (sudo apt-get install htop, for example)
  9. Used the script and installed the loggerpro from  Pretty much went fine, just some mime type error messages but should be ok.
  10. Then tried to install CmapTools--downloaded, changed .bin file to executable: sudo chmod +x, with another terminal window moved to the chroot then ran: ./LinuxCmapTools_v5.04.01_10-28-10.bin but it didn't work with familiar looking errors:
root@gcos-server:/# ./LinuxCmapTools_v5.04.01_10-28-10.bin

  1. So anyway, looks like I'll have to use my old post to install this:
  2. I'm going to try on Tuesday to copy lts.conf stuff from old chroot into this, also copy the resolv.conf stuff.  And...?
