View Full Version : [edubuntu] Ltsp fat client cannot mount nfs during bootup
November 20th, 2008, 09:22 AM
I'm trying to setup Ltsp under Ubuntu 8.10, I follow the instructions from the LTSPFatClients page and used the fat client plugin to setup the image, but whenever I logon the fat client machine, the message "Your home directory is listed as: '/home/user1' but it does not appear to exist...." any ideas?
Thanks in advance

I fixed it by adding the server ip address on the nfsmounts.sh

Hi jonatman, I have the same problem, can you pls. help me?
I can't login using my fatclient, it says, "Your home directory is listed as: '/home/user1' but it does not appear to exist...".
What did you do? I found this: http://up-stream.co.uk/2009/05/installing-a-netbooted-fat-client-with-nubaes-scripts/
Maybe it's what you're talking about.
Can you teach me step by step on how to do it? Plus, when I look at my /etc/nfsmounts.sh - it's empty, how do you put your server IP there? Forgive me for being a newbie.
Also, I already followed these:
sudo apt-get install portmap nfs-kernel-server nfs-common
echo "/home 192.168.2.10/24(rw,no_root_squash,async)" | sudo tee -a /etc/exports /dev/null
(192.168.2.10/24 - my LTSP server)
sudo exportfs -a
But still getting the error message.
Do you really need to tweak the script in nubae.com? Then afterwards, INSTALL sudo ltsp-build-client --chroot (name-of-chroot) --fatclient Ubuntu
just to PUT your SERVER IP address?
Thanks for your time. Hoping to hear from you soon.

I'm having the same problem. The home directory doesn't exist. Can anyone help with this?

Hi clarkville, you can press Alt+Ctrl+F1 to switch to terminal1, login and type, mount, as you WILL see, there aren't any "/home" mounts only /proc, /sys, etc...
So you can sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.2.10:/home /home
Where 192.168.2.10 is your server ip.
Then login w/ Alt+F7, then it finds the home directories.
My only question is, how can you do this automatically at boot up?
Is Nubae's script bad or what? I think it's unreliable.
