Interesting, I have a lucid setup at the office and it works quite well,
I'll try upgrading it and see if it breaks (I didn't update for a week
or so).

Actually, I was lying a bit above.

It's a known bug that I introduced upstream, it's been fixed upstream but the new version is not yet in Ubuntu (basically a typo in one of our init scripts function cause the script to crash and not start ldm).

Marking it fix commited, I'll prepare the new LTSP for upload so that'll be fixed just after alpha-1 (unless we absolutely want that for alpha-1, in this case, please poke me and I'll hurry).

Are the clients never getting the GUI?

I've got a 9.10 LTSP install where a client has about a 60% chance of getting LDM on bootup, the rest of the time I'm just getting the chroot text login as described. Does this sound like the same problem or something different?

Never mind my comment, stumbled upon disabling splash in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default and found that fixed it. Looks like something buggy with my hardware.
