NAME

ltsp-update-image - generate an NBD image from an LTSP chroot

SYNOPSIS

ltsp-update-image [OPTION] [CHROOT...]

DESCRIPTION

Generates a compressed squashfs NBD image from an LTSP chroot and exports it with nbd-server. Chroot can be a full path or a subdirectory of the LTSP base directory, and it defaults to the host architecture if unset.

OPTIONS

-b, --base[=PATH] The LTSP base directory Defaults to /opt/ltsp if unspecified. -c, --cleanup Temporarily remove user accounts, logs, caches etc from the chroot before exporting the image. The chroot arch is required to be compatible with the server arch. --compression[=TYPE] Compress the resulting image with TYPE (gzip, lzo, xz, lz4). If unspecified, use mksquashfs default. -e, --exclude[=LIST] List of dirs/files to exclude from the image. This is in addition to /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-image.excludes. -f, --config-nbd Generate appropriate nbd-server configuration files. It's automatically set if NFS isn't used or if other LTSP generated nbd-server configuration files already exist. -h, --help Displays the ltsp-update-image help message. -m, --no-compress Don't compress the generated image. -n, --no-backup Don't backup chroot.img to chroot.img.old. -r, --revert Swap chroot.img with chroot.img.old and update kernels. --version Output version information and exit.

AVAILABILITY

Part of the ltsp package and the latest versions are available in source form from https://launchpad.net/products/ltsp.

FILES

/etc/ltsp/<tool>.conf: Upon execution the tool will read a configuration file to override built-in defaults. Values are NAME="VALUE" pairs, with # representing commented lines. most commandline options have an equivalent. an example Debian based system with an alternate base loca‐ tion, architecture, and distribution: # set alternate default location for ltsp chroot (--base) BASE="/srv/ltsp" # build an amd64 chroot by default (--arch) ARCH="amd64" # build a Debian sid environment (--dist) DIST="sid" /etc/ltsp/ltsp-server.conf: Each LTSP server tool will read a generic configuration file. This file is typically used for setting BASE, TFTP_DIRS and TFTP_BOOT_DIR. These settings are overwritten by those set in specific tool configs.
