       ltsp kernel - copy the kernel and initrd from an image to TFTP


       ltsp [ltsp-options] kernel [-k kernel-initrd] [image] ...


       Copy  vmlinuz  and  initrd.img  from an image or chroot to TFTP.  If image is unspecified,
       process all of  them.   For  simplicity,  only  chroot  directories  and  raw  images  are
       supported,  either full filesystems (squashfs, ext4) or full disks (flat VMs). They may be
       sparse to preserve space. Don't use a separate /boot nor LVM in disk images.  The  targets
       will always be named vmlinuz and initrd.img to simplify ltsp.ipxe.


       See the ltsp(8) man page for ltsp-options.

       -k, --kernel-initrd=glob-regex
              Specify  a  kernel glob and an initrd regex to locate them inside the image; try to
              autodetect if undefined. See the EXAMPLES section below.


       This section is for advanced LTSP sysadmins.  Let's suppose that you want to test if  your
       users  would  prefer  Xubuntu  to  your  existing Ubuntu MATE. First, move and rename your
       Xubuntu CD to this location, without using symlinks, and then update kernels and ipxe:

              mv xubuntu-18.04-desktop-amd64.iso /srv/ltsp/images/xubuntu-18.04.img
              ltsp kernel xubuntu-18.04
              ltsp ipxe

       If you reboot your clients, they'll now have the option to boot with the Xubuntu  live  CD
       in  LTSP  mode! This is like booting with the live CD, except that all the users and their
       homes are available! So the users can normally login and work for days or weeks in the new
       environment, before you decide that they like Xubuntu and that you want to move from using
       the live CD to maintaining a Xubuntu image using a virtual machine.

       You can also do this with virtual machine images! For example:

              mv ~/VirtualBox\ VMs/debian/debian-flat.vmdk /srv/ltsp/images/debian-vm.img
              ln -rs /srv/ltsp/images/debian-vm.img ~/VirtualBox\ VMs/debian/debian-flat.vmdk
              ltsp kernel debian-vm
              ltsp ipxe

       These commands move your "debian" VM to the LTSP images  directory,  symlink  it  back  to
       where VirtualBox expects it, and update the kernels and ipxe.  After these, you'll be able
       to boot directly from the "debian-vm" iPXE menu item without having  to  run  ltsp  image!
       It's  the fastest way to test image changes without waiting 10 minutes for ltsp image each

       Some advanced users may think of using the opposite symlink instead:

              ln -rs ~/VirtualBox\ VMs/debian/debian-flat.vmdk /srv/ltsp/images/debian-vm.img

       Unfortunately NFS doesn't follow symlinks outside of  the  exported  directories,  so  the
       clients  wouldn't be able to boot in this case. Advanced users may use bind mounts though,

              mount --bind ~/VirtualBox\ VMs/debian/debian-flat.vmdk /srv/ltsp/images/debian-vm.img


       Typical use:

              ltsp kernel x86_64

       Passing a glob to locate the kernel and a regex to locate the initrd in a Debian live CD:

              ltsp kernel --kernel-initrd="live/vmlinuz-* s|vmlinuz|initrd.img|"
