[SOLVED] LTSP, “error: LTSP client installation ended abnormally”

I wanted to test ltsp in my Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and installed ltsp-server-standalone. Then I set up ltsp-client by using

sudo ltsp-build-client

and despite of getting no error messages during installing and configuring, I got this error:

error: LTSP client installation ended abnormally

and it stopped. I searched around and found the solution here.
The solution was to use the following set of commands instead of sudo ltsp-build-client

sudo -s
su -

This is probably a bug and hope it is fixed in the newer release.

[SOLVED] Unable to get Exclusive Lock Problem While Launching Synaptic, /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) Error

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Alpha and I encountered this while installing ltsp-server. The package being configured was ldm-server.

I was installing an application and Synaptic Package Manager just froze forever while configuring a package. I had to shut it down using sudo killall synaptic. Then, when I tried to launch t again, it would come up with “Unable to get Exclusive Lock” message. When I tried apt-get from Terminal, I got /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable).
