NAME

ltsp-update-kernels - copy LTSP chroot kernels to TFTP directories

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

Copies the boot/ directory from LTSP chroots to the TFTP directories in order to make them available to PXE clients. Copying kernels from inside NBD images is also supported. CHROOT can be a fullpath or a subdirectory of the base directory, and if it's unset, all available chroots are processed.

OPTIONS

-b, --base[=PATH]
The LTSP base directory. Defaults to /opt/ltsp if unspecified.
-h, --help
Displays the ltsp-update-kernels help message.
--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 location, 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.
