Bug Description

Attempting to perform an ltsp server install on powerpc fails because ltsp packages are not seeded on powerpc.

Either we seed the packages, or remove the ltsp-server option from powerpc images. I am enclined to do the latter, as the images are somewhat tight for space.

Should be filed against debian-cd but can't file bugs against that project for Ubuntu.

I'd +1 the removal of the LTSP option on powerpc as that'd only be useful if your clients are PowerPC too.

If you want an i386 ltsp chroot on powerpc, you'd need to do it manually after installation anyway (as we can't ship both i386 and powerpc binaries on the same CD).

Also, I never tested LTSP with PowerPC (as in, actually booting a PowerPC thin client), it's very very unlikely to work with Natty.

powerpc is no longer a supported arch that we are producing images for, so closing wontfix.
