hi everyone

<jernst>
I'm testing muekow using ubuntu edgy and I have speed problems
09:34
<vagrantc>
jernst: what speed are your thin-clients ?
09:34
<jernst>
I tried xdmcp, ssh with and without compression, 16 bits, 8 bits, it still takes ages until the desktop is loaded and then it takes one second to react for each clics
09:34
<vagrantc>
hmmm...
09:34uwe has quit IRC
09:34
<vagrantc>
how fast is your server?
09:34
<jernst>
for my tests I have used dual cores with 1GB ram, old P3 with 512 MB but they are all slow
09:35
my server is an intel dualcore#2.13 Ghz
09:35
with 2GB DDR
09:35
running Gnome locally on the server is very fast
09:35
<vagrantc>
xdmcp shouldn't be slow at all...
09:36
<jernst>
when using cdmcp even gdm is appearing very slowly, gdm is comming bloc by bloc on the screen
09:36
it feels like doing vnc over dial up
09:36
and I have gigabit lan here...
09:37
<vagrantc>
strange.
09:38
<jernst>
it takes like 6-7 second to maximize firefox from the tray, I guess it's not normal....
09:40
<vagrantc>
how fast are the thin-clients ?
09:40
CPU/RAM
09:40
<jernst>
text is fast (gnome-terminal, firefox status bar, etc.) but creating windows is slow

I currently use a laptop: Intel core 2 @ 2.13 Ghz, 1GB Ram
09:42
<vagrantc>
ok...
09:42
<jernst>
I wonder how I can find the bottleneck
09:42
<vagrantc>
at this point, my only guess is a buggy switch or buggy NIC somewhere on the network.
09:43
jernst: does that laptop have linux installed on the had drive?
09:43
jernst: you could test xdmcp from there to see if it behaves the same ...
09:44
<jernst>
vagrantc: yes it has
09:45
<vagrantc>
jernst: you could boot to the hard disk, stop X from running, and then at the commandline: sudo X -query your.server.ip.address
09:45
<jernst>
ok will do
09:45
and I will try to connect to another linux machine
09:45
<vagrantc>
have you tried with other thin-clients besides the laptop?
09:45
<jernst>
this way I will be able to tell if the server's nic is faulty
09:45
vagrantc: yes
09:46
<vagrantc>
yeah, that's about exhausted all my troubleshooting ideas :)
09:46
<jernst>
the motherboard on the server is quite new
09:46
and the driver is provided by the vendor in source form
09:46
I guess it could be the problem

does rdesktop printers should have line PRINTER_0_DEVICE = /dev/usb/lp0 and PRINTER_0_TYPE = U , must I setup something more to see it in session od RDP ?
09:51
<jernst>
vagrantc: ok I'm trying xdmcp from the laptop to the server (from hard disk). It's slow too
09:51
vagrantc: gdm is comming in blocs
09:52
<vagrantc>
jernst: ok, well, then it must not be ltsp-specific, then.
09:53
<tmjb>
jernst,slow hmm maybe some resolv.conf problem
09:55
<jernst>
tmjb: how ? I'm using ip adresse and no host name I think
09:56
<tmjb>
jernst, what it your network card
09:57
jernst, try copy something via scp on our remote server to is if the bandwith is the problem ?
09:57
<jernst>
tmjb: the driver is atl1

10:13
<jernst>
I just logged in from the same laptop to another X server on a very old machine. It's lightning fast compared to my other tests, I will now replace the nic on the server. Thanks everyone for helping me find the problem
10:13
<tmjb>
shoud I have cups on my LTSP to see my printers in rdp session
10:13
jernst,np
10:14* vagrantc knows very little about RDP
10:15
<tmjb>

10:15
I will solved it tomorow anyway tnx seya

hi I'm back ;-) now that I fixed my networking slowness problems by replacing the nic, remote sessions work well. However I rarely can finish the boot prrocess because nfs time's out
11:25
I found something about nfs server not responding in the wiki but it doesn't seem to fix it

Hello, I'm new to LTSP. I've cofigured a server with k12ltsp ver. 5 and I can start and use my clients normally. Now I'm trying to print to a client local parallel printer (HP LaserJet 6L), but the client is missing the /dev/lp0 entry. I also tried to load the kernel modules parport, parport_pc and ppdev, and with these loaded I've a device named /dev/parports/0 but I'm still missing the /dev/lp0 device. Obviously, when I

Greetings, I have an ltsp setup on the suse9.3 system and nfs. For some reason after the holiday break is acting funny in that the clients fail to mount with bad mount point error. If I change the export from /opt/ltsp to /opt/ltsp/i386 it will work for a while. Once it acts up again, I can switch back to /opt/ltsp to work for a while longer. Any ideas.

hello all

<jernst>
hello
13:21
<TurtleBoots>
can anyone please advise on how to connect TV to Ubuntu box?
13:21
PLEASE :-)
13:22
<jernst>
using ltsp ?
13:24
<TurtleBoots>
ermm no I don't think so. I completely new to this so please be patient :-)
13:24
I was advise to join this channel
13:24
and ask if anyone knew how to connect Ubuntu box to external output such as TV ?
13:26
<jernst>
this channel is to discuss ltsp, a way to use thinclients in a networked environement
13:26
I guess you should go to #ubuntu
13:26
<TurtleBoots>
ohh... wrong place completely then I guess
13:26
<jernst>
however you can just connect the TV Out of your video card to your TV and it should work (maybe you'll have to change something
13:27
<TurtleBoots>
jernst: yes it's the maybe having to change something part I'm stuck at... I was advised that the xorg.conf needs to be changed?
13:27
Can you please advise?
13:29
<jernst>
it depends of your video card
13:31
<TurtleBoots>
jernst: I've got the name of my video card, so is there anywhere you can recommend I should start looking please?
13:32ruede has quit IRC
13:32
<jernst>
TurtleBoots: what video card do you have (chip)
13:33
<TurtleBoots>
jernst: this is what I took from lspci: VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34M [GeForce FX Go5200]
13:33
I hope this is what you mean. Like I say I'm very new to all this and am still finding my way
13:34
jernst: is this what you meant by video card chip?
13:35
<jernst>
yes
13:37
TurtleBoots: are you using edgy or dapper
13:37
TurtleBoots: did you install the proprietary nvidia drive ("nvidia") or the free one ("nv")
13:38
bon tant mieux alors si je t'ai pas trop fait ch...
13:38
<TurtleBoots>
jernst: in xorg.conf it reads "nv" so I assume this is the free one
13:39
<jernst>
oups wrong channel
13:39
TurtleBoots: what version of Ubuntu do you have ?
13:40
TurtleBoots: I'll continue this discussion in private because it's not ltsp related
13:40
<TurtleBoots>
that'd be great! :-)
13:42
jernst: I've left you a note in private chat.

Hi, I have a problem with firefox, when my clients have a unexpected reboot and then try to load firefox it says that its already running and have to kill the old process before run it. I want to add a line to the /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sysinit that kills all the firefox process for each user every boot, but I 'm not sure if I will kill all the firefox process of my clients, any clue?
13:44
<jernst>
TurtleBoots: it doesn't seem to work
13:44
TurtleBoots: you can follow the guide here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=98456

that was really helpful of you jernst. Thank you for the help and I'll go take a look at this. :0(

"that's what I said a few minutes ago"
13:56
<jammcq>
g333k_work: you can't do that. at least not that way
13:56
rc.sysinit runs on the client, firefox is running on the server
13:57
g333k_work: what distro are you using?
13:57
<g333k_work>
jammcq, so how can I kill the "dead" process of firefox before login as a user?
13:57
<jernst>
g333k_work: you can kill the process in a script executed when the client is logging in, it will only kill his own processes

So where should I put that script? and can you help me to write it?
14:00
<jernst>
g333k_work: I mean if you use gnome on the clients you can use gnome-session-properties
14:00
<g333k_work>
jernst, I'm using xfce btw
14:02
jammcq, any other clue?
14:02
<jammcq>
g333k_work: jernst seems to be leading you down the right path, i'd follow him

14:30
<mrlinux>
i need help setting up the dchp
14:31
<Gadi>
mrlinux: clairvoyance is not our forte
14:32
what seems to be the problem?
14:33
<mrlinux>
the problem is that i have 2 nic's one is for internet the other is going to go to the clients
14:33rjent has left #ltsp
14:34
<mrlinux>
the dhcp config says 192.168.0.1 but i have to use 172.31.4.02
14:36
i need help configuring it
14:38
gadi, so can you help me
14:38
<Gadi>
um, sure
14:38
<mrlinux>
i am just unfammiler with edubuntu
14:38
6.10
14:38
<Gadi>
you have a sample that you are working from?
14:39
oh, and just out of curiosity, if you have 2 nics, why do you need to use a particular subnet?
14:39
<mrlinux>
sample?
14:40
ok how i want it so that this server has the 172 addy but i want it to send the others a 192 or different ip addy
14:41
<Gadi>
just plug the 172 side into the network switch that connects to the existing network, and the 192 side to another switch that only connects to the thin clients
14:42
<mrlinux>
ok good execpt i want this machine to give the other computers the 192 address
14:42
via a lan not a switch
14:43
<Gadi>
ok, lets take a step back, cause Im a bit confused:
14:43
<mrlinux>
ok
14:44
right now i need help setting up the dhcp config
14:44
<Gadi>
you have both fat clients (PCs) and thin clients connected to the thin client switch and the server connected to the switch of the existing network
14:44
is that right?
14:44
<mrlinux>
ok here is how it is
14:45
server to this machine (thin server) then from this machine to the clients
14:46
<Gadi>
"server"?
14:46
<mrlinux>
this is a school project
14:46shogunx has quit IRC
14:46
<Gadi>
you have 2 servers?
14:48
<mrlinux>
the schools server which is on a super net connected to a bunch of routers then from those routers to our computers

14:54
ok my eth0 is connected to the internet but i want my eth1 to connect to the client
14:56
<Gadi>
have you taken a look at: http://www.edubuntu.org/GettingStarted
14:57
once you figure out how it is you want things to connect, you should find everything you need there

Please, where can I find a document about LTSP history?
19:11
All references that I found currently doesn't exists anymore since ltsp.org was remanaged.
19:11
<vagrantc>
otavio: debconf talk? :)
19:11
<rangerpb_shop>
any tricks to when a workstation cant seem to find a resolution?
19:12
<otavio>
vagrantc: do you have a pointer for it?
19:12
vagrantc: how are you doing?
19:12* vagrantc looks
19:12
<otavio>
vagrantc: does it has something about its history? I don't remember
19:13
<vagrantc>
otavio: this is kind of the starting point: http://ltsp.org/longstory.php
19:13
<otavio>
vagrantc: Ah! Nice
19:13
That works to me
19:13
vagrantc: thanks a lot ;-)
19:13
vagrantc: I'm looking for to another long hacking section together with you ;-)
19:13
<vagrantc>
otavio: it was crazy to actually visit the place
19:13
otavio: i'm hoping i can make it.
19:14
<otavio>
vagrantc: I'm missing your usual fights about project design decisions ;-)
19:14
vagrantc: and tequila, of course ;-) or even better, cachaca ;-)
19:14
<vagrantc>
otavio: as soon as etch releases, i'll surely be stirring up a lot of crazy new ideas.
19:14rangerpb_shop has quit IRC
19:14
<otavio>
vagrantc: Me too
19:15
vagrantc: i'm finishing one product here and the next will use most of ltsp on it
19:15
vagrantc: so I'll be on it with you ;-)
19:15
<vagrantc>
otavio: we got a spanish translation for ltsp, but the review process seems to suffer from the "manyana" syndrome.
19:16rangerpb has joined #ltsp
19:18
<otavio>
vagrantc: hahah
19:18
vagrantc: i see
19:18
<vagrantc>
hopefully it will make it into etch.
19:18
<otavio>
vagrantc: will you try to make debconf7?
19:19
<vagrantc>
otavio: i want to. though it's probably only feasible if i get full sponsorship
19:19
otavio: and even then, i might not be able to.
19:19
<otavio>
vagrantc: really? why?
19:20
vagrantc: I'll also making it only if I have sponsorship. It won't be possible to me to expend money for it :(
19:20
<vagrantc>
otavio: well, i'm not going to fly half-way around the world only to spend two weeks there. i'd like to go to spain and practice my spanish more :)
19:21
otavio: if we both make it, we should do a better ltsp talk :)
19:21
otavio: maybe even sleep the night before and prepare for it :)
19:25
<otavio>
vagrantc: ahah sleep isn't too useful
19:25
vagrantc: why do you think that sleep is need? ;-)
19:26
vagrantc: I would like to make a round-table to bring new ideas to ltsp and then improve it during debconf
19:26
vagrantc: that would be nice
19:26
<vagrantc>
otavio: definitely.
19:27
otavio: ogra said he'll go.
19:27
otavio: and i imagine petter will be there.
19:28
<otavio>
vagrantc: oh! great!
19:28
vagrantc: that would be awesome if you can make it
19:28* vagrantc wonders if we'd be able to get some people from the other distro's for 1-2 days.
19:29
<otavio>
vagrantc: It would be great, indeed.
19:29
vagrantc: Since you're more active then me, latelly, on LTSP... what's the improvements that you're planing to push after Etch goes out?
19:30
<vagrantc>
otavio: i want to make it possible to install a bare-bones install- no X, no sound, no nothing.
19:31
otavio: probably also want to get pulseaudio support. seems to be the latest sound fad.
19:31
otavio: so, basically, we need to implement plugins for the client-side scripts.
19:31
otavio: split ldm into it's own source package ...
19:31
<otavio>
vagrantc: indeed
19:32
vagrantc: i would like to try to implement support to work without NFS
19:32
<vagrantc>
otavio: i want to make a cross-architecture debian-installer .udeb
19:32
<otavio>
vagrantc: using a single image file, too
19:32
<vagrantc>
otavio: so that you can network-boot a machine of the appropriate architecture using d-i and then install another arcitecture on the server.
19:32
otavio: root on NBD ?
19:33
<otavio>
vagrantc: no. Plain initramfs system
19:33
vagrantc: so we would need to reduce even more the chroot
19:33
<vagrantc>
otavio: that'll be challenging.
19:33
<otavio>
vagrantc: for a bare minimum system
19:33
vagrantc: yes, it'll
19:33
vagrantc: but also add a big plus to us
19:33
<vagrantc>
otavio: i'm probably not too interested in that :P
19:33
<otavio>
vagrantc: that's more or less what thinstation support now
19:34
<vagrantc>
right.
19:34
<otavio>
vagrantc: no? why
19:34
<vagrantc>
otavio: i think the only way to make that work is custom-built binaries.
19:34
<otavio>
vagrantc: no. Expecially on Debian where we have a very granullar system
19:35
vagrantc: we can add just a minimun set of applications on X for example
19:35
<vagrantc>
otavio: it will still be very difficult to get it small enough, i think. but feel free to prove me wrong :)
19:35
<otavio>
vagrantc: let's see
19:35
vagrantc: but before it I wish to use qemu for cross-arch building
19:36
vagrantc: chroot building
19:36
<vagrantc>
otavio: i was playing with that just the other day.
19:36
otavio: i think qemu is a long ways off.
19:37
otavio: i'm going to dinner... talk more later :)
