Barry,

thanks for letting us know.
I am planning on deploying k12linux on Centos7.

Greetings, johan
Hello All,
Thought this may be of interest to some here.
Decided to see how an install of LTSP on CentOS 7 would go,so here are
my findings and long story short LTSP can work on CentOS 7!
1) Fresh install of CentOS 7
2) Do the standard install of the ltsp repo.rpm
3)" yum -y install ltsp-server", fails with three dependencies not
fulfilled.
4) add the epel & repoforge repos., still fails with xorg-x11-xdm not
found
5) find this rpm on net in i386 and force install
6) ltsp-server now installs fine on server, and ltsp-build-client builds
fine as well.
7) thin client boots but fails login, same as a recent CentOS 6.6 & LTSP
with root trying to get a login from ssh right behind the standard user?
1) rename /tftpboot/ltsp and /opt/ltsp to ltsp_OLD on CentOS 7 server.
1a) from a working 8 month old install of LTSP on CentOS 6.6 on server
rsync -avz /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp remoteCentOS7:/var/lib/tftpboot/
rsync -avz /opt/ltsp remoteCentOS7:/opt/
2a) restart nfs & xinetd services
3a) ltsp-update-sshkeys & ltsp-update-kernels
4a) boot client - login success!
5a) usb sticks & sound works.
6a) #optional, install latest google chrome on server with,
http://tecadmin.net/install-google-chrome-in-centos-rhel-and-fedora/
Not necessary but all of the recent ltsp/k12linux server gets frequent
flash-plugin/plugin-container crashes using latest Firefox,
flash-plugin .
This is a known problem running flash-plugin on remote displays.
Hope this may help someone.
Barry

Hello Barry, Hello All,

so I'm also experimenting on Centos7.

I followed the procedure described by Barry below.

The thinclient boots fine, but users or root can't logon.
The EM I'm seeing is:
Apr 14 11:46:02 localhost sshd[5003]: Connection closed by 192.168.63.130 [preauth]

I tried the usual, ltsp-update-sshkeys, Selinux, ...

Can anyone help me with this?

Many thanks.

Johan

Hello Jim,

I tested with Selinux on or off, no difference.
Thanks for helping me ou though.
I seems Centos7 is eluding a lot of ltsp-people these days.

Greetings, Johan

Disable selinux with setenforce 0 and retry. Or you can go digging in the audit log for clues.

Hello,

it could be this is related to Lightdm, the server has mate-desktop installed. I'm also seeing this EM:
Apr 14 12:04:36 localhost lightdm: pam_unix(lightdm-greeter:session): session closed for user lightdm

Hello Barry, Hello All,

so I'm also experimenting on Centos7.

I followed the procedure described by Barry below.

The thinclient boots fine, but users or root can't logon.
The EM I'm seeing is:
Apr 14 11:46:02 localhost sshd[5003]: Connection closed by 192.168.63.130 [preauth]

I tried the usual, ltsp-update-sshkeys, Selinux, ...

Can anyone help me with this?

Many thanks.

Johan

Barry,

thanks for letting us know.
I am planning on deploying k12linux on Centos7.

Greetings, johan
Hello All,
Thought this may be of interest to some here.
Decided to see how an install of LTSP on CentOS 7 would go,so here are
my findings and long story short LTSP can work on CentOS 7!
1) Fresh install of CentOS 7
2) Do the standard install of the ltsp repo.rpm
3)" yum -y install ltsp-server", fails with three dependencies not
fulfilled.
4) add the epel & repoforge repos., still fails with xorg-x11-xdm not
found
5) find this rpm on net in i386 and force install
6) ltsp-server now installs fine on server, and ltsp-build-client builds
fine as well.
7) thin client boots but fails login, same as a recent CentOS 6.6 & LTSP
with root trying to get a login from ssh right behind the standard user?
1) rename /tftpboot/ltsp and /opt/ltsp to ltsp_OLD on CentOS 7 server.
1a) from a working 8 month old install of LTSP on CentOS 6.6 on server
rsync -avz /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp remoteCentOS7:/var/lib/tftpboot/
rsync -avz /opt/ltsp remoteCentOS7:/opt/
2a) restart nfs & xinetd services
3a) ltsp-update-sshkeys & ltsp-update-kernels
4a) boot client - login success!
5a) usb sticks & sound works.
6a) #optional, install latest google chrome on server with,
http://tecadmin.net/install-google-chrome-in-centos-rhel-and-fedora/
Not necessary but all of the recent ltsp/k12linux server gets frequent
flash-plugin/plugin-container crashes using latest Firefox,
flash-plugin .
This is a known problem running flash-plugin on remote displays.
Hope this may help someone.
Barry
