Re: [K12OSN] How to update K12LTSP-5.0.0EL-32bit chroot



Hi Dan,

yeah , I noticed things worked alot differently.

I do have a frankenbox setup with primarily a K12LTSP5.0.0EL chroot,
with all the libraries , or at least the great majority stripped out and
replaced with those from a fed root. on this last attempt, i kept the
cent kernel under tfptboot. I had been trying the wraplinux kernel from
fed on previous incarnations.

the tc comes up ok, worked lib inconsistencies out. all apps from the
host come up ok. if i enter the tc shell i can communicate with a
locally attached scanner, run scanimage and have it pull the paper thru,
so I'm somewhat encouraged by that.

however, if you have a decent way to update the chroot in K12LTSP5.0.0EL
without having to kludge things like I have, I sure am interested. I
noticed the ltsp-build-client script from fed and ubuntu. that would be
perfect but not trivial to adapt i notice.

I'm more or less married to getting a working ltsp implementation on my
kickstart based on centos 5.4    .... and hopefully 6  .. someday,  but
5.0 libraries in the chroot are pretty ancient and wont work with some
of the hardware I need to get working.
