    Edubuntu LTSP Problem

    I have a problem with the Edubuntu LTSP thin client setup.

    I've got to the point where I put a floppy disk in my thin client and boot and all seems to be going well until I come up with these errors.


    Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ....
    Done.
    mount: Mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: No such file or directory
    mount: Mouthing /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
    Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init

    /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off


    After that I am thrown into the built in shell.
    The file sbin/init is on my server in the right place /opt/ltsp/i386.

    Re: Edubuntu LTSP Problem

    Is it getting an IP address from the server?

    The NFS server isn't running on the Edubuntu Server.

    Yes it is getting an IP address.

    That would explain it Geoff, I'll check it first thing tomorrow. I thought Edubuntu LTSP was supposed to run without any config changes except to the dhcpd.conf file ???
