This page is dedicated to getting the AMD Geode series video driver/xorg to work with LTSP thin-clients.

Steps to update to latest -geode and -nsc packages:

  • Become root:
sudo -s
  • Chroot to the LTSP client chroot
chroot /opt/ltsp/i386/
  • Update sources.list with Q-Funk's PPA containing updated packages:
echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/q-funk/ubuntu hardy main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade
  • Remove the transitional -amd package as this causes issues:
apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-amd
  • Exit the chroot:
exit
  • Update the image:
ltsp-update-image

NOTE: For AMD64 server installs and i386 clients, use:

ltsp-update-image --arch i386
