View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Ubuntu LTSP when using a separate DHCP and TFTP server

March 17th, 2010, 05:59 PM

I want to install Ubuntu LTSP on top of an already existing system. However, I want to use a different DHCP and TFTP server. Do I simply just install ‘ltsp-server-standalone’ with apt and run ‘sudo ltsp-build-client’, stop the DHCP and TFTP server and stop them from starting automatically? Would I then just copy over the pxelinux.cfg/default file from /var/lib/tftpboot along with the initrd.img and vmlinuz images to the TFTP server?


Edit: Do I need to actually copy the whole /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp directory over to the TFTP server?

I've set this up as I described in my original post, and AFAICT it seems to work. I just copied over the contents of the /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp directory to the TFTP server.
