Hi Eric (...and anyone else interested in LTSP thin
What type of thin client do you have spare?
If anyone would like to have a play with thin client PC's, then I have a
of HP T5735's. HP Quickspecs.
For local booting they came with Debian Linux 4.0 with Kernel 2.6, so
they are from
The BIOS supports PXE booting to so they can download their OS and
image from a Linux Terminal Server (LTSP).
Possibly the easiest way to set up an LTSP server is to use the Edubuntu
These thin clients will then boot an i386 OS image from the server.
However these days for a thin-client you might be better off to buy a LCD
with an HDMI input and bolt a Raspberry Pi to it. The Raspberry Pi
can be setup to boot from the LTSP server. There was a Raspi-LTSP project
which has evolved and become the PiNet project. I like the way they used
the Motorola lapdock 100's as the human interface for the Raspberry Pi.
PS: If you'd like an 84 page guide to LTSP
Here's an idea, Ian. Would you mind showing off a working setup of LTSP at
the next meeting? Then we can discuss setup issues and other such things.
