    I have it booting and loading X at first but the second time I boot, X won't start.
    I am also seeing a TON of SQUASHFS error messages in the syslog (see attached).
    I think there is an nfs overlay issue because I see it mounted twice to the same place.
    This thread discussed an issue with squashfs. Maybe you should try the suggested fix to see if it solves your problem.

    Thanks for the reply Mal!
    Changing "pidof nbd-client > /var/run/sendsigs.omit.d/nbd-client" to "pidof nbd-client > /lib/init/rw/sendsigs.omit.d/nbd-client" in "/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/init.d/mythbuntu-diskless-client" actually did fix my problem with shutting down my LTSP clients so I am pretty satisfied now.

    However I encountered another problem, somehow I can no longer login to the "mythtv" user. The user is there as well as the home/mythtv dir but it wont login...

    I assume you're talking about logging in to the diskless client machine. On my system, I log in using my normal user name. Have you tried this?

    Yeah sorry if I wasn't clear. I meant logging into the "mythtv" user account on a "client" LTSP box.
    My "normal" user account does work. It's just that I like to use the mythtv user for mythfrontend and my normal user for doing other things.

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

    Figuring this is the best place to post this question...

    I want to run a diskless frontend over an atheros wireless card. I know that pxe/etherboot won't work over wireless so I am hoping to boot off a CF disk and then get the wireless working then nbd mount to the server over wireless.

    I also realise this requires adding the ath_pci module (and all dependent modules) to the initrd.img.

    What I am not sure about is exactly how to acheive that, and to configure wpa etc in the initrd.

    Any ideas?

    Here's a patch to add the local domain to resolv.conf.

    Is it possible to install a 9.10 image with ltsp on a server running 9.04? If so how?

    I have been running with an 8.04 LTSP image on a 9.04 server because the 9.04 Intel video driver doesn't work with my diskless frontend machine. I simply copied the appropriate directories from my server's old 8.04 partition over the top of the 9.04 partition.

    However, 9.10 comes with mythtv 0.22 which is apparently not compatible with 0.21, so I don't think you could run a 9.10 client with a 9.04 server.
