Re: Offline installations no longer possible with DebianEdu Stretch?
The offline installation incl. chroot worked perfectly. Thanks so much!
For the first time I also used boot parameters and I switched from kde to
I?m facing issues with my thin clients. My diskless workstations work just
fine. None of my thin clients is able to boot anymore. The login screen
never shows and I get a black screen. I faced this issue before with a few
somehow special hardware thin clients but now all seem to be affected and
on both subnets.
When I start the server and get to the login screen I have the option
?Plasma? available. When I choose it and log in I get an error message
telling me that packages are missing. The user is then stuck and can?t
logout anymore. Is there a way to fully remove kde so the user cannot use
it anymore and get stuck?
