    Re: [8.04] Mythbuntu-diskless: Testers wanted!

    I tried editing the fstab file in the chroot but that didn't persist either. guess I'll comment out that line in the ltsp-client-setup (will it then take what i...

    Re: [8.04] Mythbuntu-diskless: Testers wanted!

    Okay, so it appears that /etc/fstab resets on every reboot? how do set up my nfs mounts in a persistent way?

    the mounting problem seems to be that /sbin/mount.* don't exist on the client.

    I'll definately add my experiences once I get a chance to sum them up.

    Sounds good.

    Quick question, is this intended mainly for true thin clients, or does it facilitate "fat" clients too?

    Also, do you have the trac id number on hand so i can keep an eye out?
