I have the same problems. The problem with first attempting to log in I
solved (I believe). This solution concerns i386 and x86_64 thin client
image (epel6-i386 and epel-6-x86_64).
I added to /opt/ltsp/chroot/etc/sysconfig three files which I couldn't
find after ltsp-build-client script execution:
and my /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp_chroot is not empty but includes
and /opt/ltsp/x86_64/etc/ltsp_chroot includes
Now LDM doesn't reload and works fine.
I am not sure that this the best solution, but it helped me.
Thin client still doesn't reboot or shutdown.
I tried Debian LTSP too, but I retrieved. Finally I moved Debian thin
client image to LTSP on CentOS 6.4 and I can use it, but I prefer epel-6
images. In my opinion the most stable thin client image is Scientific
Linux 6.1 (ltsp-server 5.2) and I recommend it.
