NAME

ltsp-build-client - Builds an LTSP client system for use with the LTSP server

 

SYNOPSIS

ltsp-build-client <options>

 

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

OPTIONS

Not all options are available on all installations. For a complete list of available options, use the --help and --extra-help options.

--arch arch
Builds a chroot with the specified architecture. Must be a supported architecture of the distribution, and compatible with the host architecture. Defaults vary by distribution.

--base dir
Sets the default path for the ltsp chroots to be installed into. Defaults to /opt/ltsp/.

--chroot file
Sets the default name for the ltsp chroot. Defaults to the architecture selected with --arch or the running architecture.

--config file

--dist distribution

CONFIG FILE

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)
 BASE="/srv/ltsp"
 # build an amd64 chroot by default (--arch)
 ARCH="amd64"
 # build a Debian sid environment (--dist)
 DIST="sid"
