NAME

nbdrootd — Serve out LTSP images created with ltsp-update-image(8)

SYNOPSIS

nbdrootd

DESCRIPTION

nbdrootd will serve out LTSP images created with ltsp-update-image(8) which are filesystem images, and compressed with mksquashfs(8). The nbdrootd(8) program is a simple shell script wrapper for nbd-server(1) program, and it is usually run from an inetd(8) instance.

EXAMPLE

Add the following line to /etc/inetd.conf(5):
2000 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/nbdrootd /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img
Note that the ltsp-update-image(8) program will do this for you automatically.

SEE ALSO
