Logging into virtual consoles on thin clients (ctrl-alt-f1)
 
Edubuntu 8.10 amd64

How does one log into a virtual console on an i386 thin client? I can see
the consoles by switching to them, but can't log into them with any of the
system users/credentials.

Thanks.

You can only log in with any user specified in the /client's/ log-in
chain.
I don't know, how exactly it is with ltsp, but you should take a look
into /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/passwd. If the thin client uses this directly,
you'll need to chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 and then use adduser to add some
admin user for your debugging usage.

Other than that - don't let users use the virtual terminals as they
don't have access to the server's apps.

Greetings,

Mika

Perfect Mika!

sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
passwd [user]
passwd -u [user]
exit
ltsp-update-image --arch i386
