Hi folks,

I tried the steps Wolfgang suggested above. It was quite a pain and took
long due to my rather bad internet connection.

I seams that most of the packages are available on
debian-edu-9+edu0-USB.iso. Therefore it helped me a lot to copy them into
/var/cache/apt/archives/ prior to the building process to reduce the
number of downloads.

The building process was successful, which is good news. I then tested
LTSP with a client pc.

To boot using option ?LTSP diskless workstation? seems to work perfectly.

Booting with option ?LTSP thin client? fails. The booting process starts
as expected returning a number of messages. The following message is
thrown but may not be serious, since it also appears with option ?LTSP
diskless workstation? not causing any problems apparently.

[FAILED] Failed to start Simple Desktop Display Manager.
See ?systemctl status sddm.service? for details.

After this, the screen turns black. I can then switch to console but I?m
unable to go further since login and password is required. I tested root
and first user login without success.

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
