Since Ubuntu and Debian are fairly close, you might be able to install one from
the other, but you'll need to force the VENDOR used. For example, on an Ubuntu

  VENDOR=Debian ltsp-build-client --dist wheezy

or on a Debian server:

  VENDOR=Ubuntu ltsp-build-client --dist precise

Mint is a little odd, in that it's essentially Ubuntu with some extra packaging
and settings, so it's technically implemented as an Ubuntu variant in

And Mint Debian Cinnamon 64 bit has been installed on the server we are setting up at our LUG to experiment on LTSP. 
We were forced to specify --dist and we specified

ltsp-build-client --dist wheezy

Time to fix the DHCP server that didn't start on the second eth and we'll see...!

I can't speak for how the other linux distros work...

It is our intention to test a few of them, hope to be able to share the results.

Many thanks!
