Not sure if i put it here or what, but i found a problem with the creation of Mddiskless, in that it didnĀ“t include any of the graphics drivers ATI NVIDIA, which in turn failed to start X

Tried to apt install manually, but first had to add postdrop:x:124: to /etc/groups after that everything runs.

ati and nvidia drivers are downloaded as needed by the individual machine.

There are rather a lot, and typically they are not free, so they cannot be pre-packaged. If you have not already, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade your core, then run /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh again to package the latest detection stuff which is very likely to pull down the CORRECT driver for the given machines.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Yeah i did update core, and rerun diskless install, however on the md, i couldnt apt-get upgrade untill postdrop was added in in the group file.
