Re: [K12OSN] How to update K12LTSP-5.0.0EL-32bit chroot

Not exactly. I'm suggesting that you backup the existing /opt/ltsp/i386 subdirectory, or just rename it. Then, from your K12Linux Fedora 9/10/11/12/13/14/WhateverYouChoose box, copy *that* /opt/ltsp/i386 subdirectory tree--the entire thing--over to your K12LTSP 5EL server. Your clients will thus be using that Fedora version of the client binaries vs. the ones that came with K12LTSP 5EL.

not sure I completely follow.  are you advising to backup the existing
directory , drop in the new c libraries (libc)  and see what happens ?

The way I always did it when I needed a specific set of binaries for the
clients was to copy the entire /opt/ltsp/i386 subdirectory (or
/opt/ltsp/ppc, or /opt/ltsp/sparc, as appropriate for my architecture)
to my K12LTSP server.  Beforehand, I would typically rename the existing
/opt/ltsp/i386 subdir. to, say, /opt/ltsp/i386.orig.  These binaries
should have *zero* affect on the server itself, since they run only on
the client.

Give that a shot and let us know.

Hi Barry,

when i was trying to get my centos host run with a fedora 10 prebuilt
chroot I had problems with the tc after loading the kernel from my dhcpd
server on port 1067,  the kernel loaded but the tc was making a second
dhclient call but back on port 67 and not being able to load a desktop.
i wound up moving sysinit_early and a couple other files from the centos
chroot into fed10 prebuilt.

 it then  behaved as it should have more or less. when i was on a telnet
screen as defined in lts.conf, I was able to login. shell screens give a
prompt at the TC,  when i specified an x session screen, I had the x
mouse cursor and gray/silver desktop background.

the K12LTSP-5.0.0EL-32bit iso worked perfectly, my only problem is the
packages in the chroot are too old. i need to update libc from 2.3.2 and
i cant find any utility thatll update the chroot so i have been trying
to adapt ltsp-build-client from fedora, without success , so far.

What are you seeing on the TC when it is completely booted up? From what
        you explain you are only presented with a telnet login? No other
        blinking as if X is trying to start? What have you set in your
        file for screens? If you do CTL-ALT-F2 do you get a bash prompt?
