Yes. All users can login at the console.

Yes, I have done numerous installs of LTSP over recent years,
and have a written step by step protocol that has worked well
in the past. In essence it is the steps from


followed by

/usr/sbin/ltsp-build-client --arch i386
cd /etc/yum.repos.d

cp -p *.repo /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/yum.repos.d
setarch i386 /usr/sbin/chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
mount /proc -t proc proc

yum update yum

yum update

After yum is complete, exit the chroot by typing 'exit'.

sudo ltsp-update-kernels
sudo ltsp-update-sshkeyssudo ltsp-update-image

This has worked well for some time, with various installs.

I only have one NIC and an ltsp bridge. I shouldn't think that would cause
the problem I've observed, because clearly, the thin client is finding the image and downloading it and booting normally.

Now we get our hands dirty...
