ltsp-build-client builds an ltsp client chroot using standard packages for use with the ltsp server. This chroot installation can be modified in a number of ways as outlined in the OPTIONS section. If present, defaults will be read from the configuration file /etc/ltsp/ltsp-build-client.conf, and will be overridden by using the command line options. ltsp-build-client is usually run as the root user. Visit http://www.ltsp.org for more information.
Not all options are available on all installations. For a complete list of available options, use the --help and --extra-help options.
ltsp-build-client will read a configuration file to override built-in defaults. the default location for this configuration file is /etc/ltsp/ltsp-build-client.conf, and can be specified with the --conf commandline option.
values are NAME="VALUE" pairs, with # representing commented lines. most commandline options have an equivalent. an example Debian based system with an alternate base location, architecture, and distribution:
# set alternate default location for ltsp chroot (--base)
# build an amd64 chroot by default (--arch)
# build a Debian sid environment (--dist)
ltsp-build-client is part of ltsp package and the latest versions are available in source form from https://launchpad.net/products/ltsp.
