ThinLinc on an USB stick

A few weeks ago I published GitHub - oposs/dbrrg: Docker based RamRoot Generator a system for booting ThinLinc clients directly over the network. Yesterday a colleague asked: Can this also run from a stick? I would like to run it at home.

I was not quite as simple as I imagined, but … tata … there you go.

git clone
cd dbrrg
make image
dd if=image-export/thinlinc-efi-boot.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1M status=progress conv=fsync

Ready to EFI boot your NUC or BRIX. No local disk required, and the thing will even save your ThinLinc settings between reboots.

If your client has plenty of ram, you can also install additional packages at runtime, your user has sudo rights!
