A few observations from installing ltsp-5.2.4-5:
1. Note that ltspfs and ltspfsd are not available on download site. However,
they are required by the ltsp-client and ltsp-server rpms. I installed them from
Fedora 13, using versions used are 5.13-1, and then installed the
the ltsp-client and ltsp-server rpms.
I followed the installation instructions at
2. Messages from ltsp-build-client:
/usr/sbin/setenforce: SELinux is disabled
(Note: I have NEVER been able to get ltsp to work when SELinux was running
on the server.)

3. I continued the install procedure. After running yum update and exiting from
the chroot, and running ltsp-update-kernels, I ran ltsp-update-image:
Could not create destination file: No such file or directory
ERROR during mksquashfs creation of /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img. Aborting...
/opt/ltsp/images did not exist. I created the directory, and then
the command worked.
At this point I could successfully boot the thin client, and get
the blue k12Linux login screen.
However, I am still having the problem, mentioned in my previous post,
that for any user who tries to login, I see the message:
Verifying password, please wait.
The screen goes black for a moment and flashes a
message (too fast to be readable), and then
returns to the blue login screen again.
This happens with all user accounts, so nobody can
I was having this problem when I installed ltsp-5.13-1 from Fedora
13, so I don't know whether this is a problem with LTSP per se,
or something else that isn't configured properly on my server.
I tried suggestions posted by Sergio Chaves (re-running ltsp-update-sshkeys
and ltsp-update-image), and those posted by Barry Cisna (eg. creating
a fresh user account) but none of these things has made it possible
Further ideas would be welcome.
