LTSP 5 and fedora 8

Since my involvement with Bijra High school project and working with ltsp , I am simply loving this thing . So i started playing with it . This is my first post .. more to come gradually .

Installation .

Ltsp 5 has still not being integrated to fedora. I downloaded the tarball of LTSP 5 from here .{http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/ltsp-5.0/ltsp_ubuntu_6.10_i386-2.tar.bz2}

This made primarily for ubuntu 6.10 but it works with fedora.

In order to install

1) TFTP, DHCP, NFS and SSH server are needed

2) ltsp-update -kernels package is needed . it is found here .{http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/ltsp-5.0/ltsp-update-kernels-2.tar.bz2}
This will copy the kernels from the ltsp tree to a place where your TFTP server can get them.

3) ltsp-update-sshkeys package is needed . It is found here
{ http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/ltsp-5.0/ltsp-update-sshkeys-2.tar.bz2}

This simply sets up the ssh_known_hosts file to know about the server.

4) The compresses archive is needed to be unpacked in directory (/opt here ) .

5) unpack the other two packages and run the scripts.

6) NFS and DHCP are configured .

7) Things to take care of :-

a) making sure of /etc/exports file containing an entry for /opt/ltsp .
b) making sure to have the right filename and root-path entries to point to the right kernel and ltsp tree in /etc/dhcpd.conf

  1. hi,

    we are also running ltsp, we’ve got Fedora 7 with ltsp 4. Just wandering with your hack version of ltsp 5 on fedora 8 have you got ltsp sound to work seamlessly.

    ie so if someone is looking at a youtube video on a client do they get audio?

  2. Subhodip,

    Thanks for publishing the document on ‘Making LTSP 5 work in fedora 8′. Currently I’m trying to install LTSP 5 on CentOS. Unfortunately I’m not able to download ltsp 5 tarball from http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/ltsp-5.0/ltsp_ubuntu_6.10_i386-2.tar.bz2 as it gives me the following error:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /pub/ltsp/ltsp-5.0/ltsp_ubuntu_6.10_i386-2.tar.bz2 was not found on this server.
    Apache/2.2.8 Server at ltsp.mirrors.tds.net Port 80

    Can I please request you to make this tarball available on your site, so that I can download and proceed.

    Also request you to kindly mail once you make it available on the site.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Prasad.
