View Full Version : [ubuntu] LTSPCrossArchSetup PPC client failed

April 24th, 2008, 04:33 PM

I have followed the instructions here : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPCrossArchSetup
But I'm not able to complete the building of the ltsp for Powerpc. (testing on powermac G4)

Somebody has an idea why the chroot failed ?

Thanks in advance

sudo ltsp-build-client

I have this exact same problem, does anyone have any suggestions. vfxjbg: Did you ever find a solution?

I'm also getting this problem. Has anyone figured out a work-around?

If anyone has a working PPC chroot, could they tar it and share it. K12Linux has done this, so it is easy to setup... but I would prefer to be able to use Ubuntu.

It seems the PowerPC client option failed a while ago and no one has come up with a fix. I am hoping to understand LTSP and perhaps create my own image by hand. If I do, I will post the URL to the 'root' image and show how I did it.
