LTSP | LTSP Client Upgrade06 Mar 2010
All the following commands are entered on the server. Normally this would be having logged into your normal LTSP desktop and opened a terminal session, but it could equally be from an ssh session to the server. The key thing is that you do not run these commands from a client shell, as the client system is read-only.
These instructions are for Debian, Ubuntu users will also need to update the client image afterwards.
Step by Step Process
$ sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 # mount -t proc /proc /proc # mount -t sysfs sys /sys # apt-get update # apt-get upgrade # umount sys # umount /proc # exit $ sudo ltsp-update-kernels
The mount proc and mount sysfs commands are not always required, and can be omitted in many instances, but if in doubt I don’t believe they cause any harm.
The ltsp-update-kernels command is only required if the client kernel has been upgraded, but again I don’t believe it causes any harm to run it unnecessarily.
