[deleted fine description of basic LTSP requirements]

Actually we already have the LTSP basic server requirements separated out
and running on bare metal. As you say, there is not much to do here.

The unstable VM is running the desktops for the LTSP. Also a lightly
loaded httpd and a lightly loaded samba server. There is also a light
load of NFS which I have almost disabled while this problem persists.

Well yes, seems I've hit trouble this time. Was expecting some trouble
with the desktop apps and was happy to deal with that.  I was not
expecting significant kernel trouble however.

Rebuilding a modern desktop distro with an older kernel is a lot of
work. That's what distributions are for right?
