pff another error with ubuntu-ltsp, there is a hostname-file with a name, there must be no file with hostname
05:38
it is made when the client is booting
05:46
<ogra>
its overwritten when the client is booting ...
05:47
unless the hostname.sh initscript recieved a hostname by dhcp or other mechanisms ...
05:48
if you want additional hostnames, create /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/hosts.ltsp
05:48
it will get attached to /etc/hosts of the client
05:53
<cliebow>
ogra: any definitive docs antwhere?
05:56
<ogra>
cliebow, about this specific functionallity ? nope, i dont think so, unless debian (who implemented that part) has something ...
05:58
<yanu>
ogra: is that the default system?
05:59
<ogra>
thats in dapper/edgy and etch/sid (not sure if it was in the sarge backport already)
06:00
<yanu>
on mij debian with ltsp4.2, there is no hostname-file, it is created when booting
06:00
why do the ubuntu-dev put a hostfile if it is created, and cause a lot of trouble (by me :) )
06:02
wierd, normaly dhcpd must pass trough the hostname, and it was'nt changed?
06:02
<ogra>
i'm talking about ltsp 5pre, sorry then
06:02
<yanu>
ubuntu edgy here, that is ltsp4.2 , i think
06:03
<ogra>
do you use the ubuntu ltsp package ?
06:03
or did you download the tarball from ltsp.org ?
06:03
<yanu>
yes
06:03
<ogra>
the first is 5pre, the latter is 4.2
06:04
anyway, got a meeting now, bbl
06:04
<yanu>
there is no version in /etc/version
06:04
ok
06:04
<ogra>
then its ubuntu
06:04
in fact the file shouldnt exist on an ubuntu system
06:05
<yanu>
no the file doesn't exits

<psycodad>
jernst: yes
07:34
ask your question.
07:35rangerhomezzz is now known as rangerpb
07:35
<jernst>
psycodad: I just finished installing ltsp and everything works. I used ssh and xdmcp but I read that NX could improve my setup even more
07:36
psycodad: I'm using edgy and muekow, what are the steps involved to make my clients use NX after booting up ?
07:36rangerpb is now known as rangerhomezzz
07:37
<psycodad>
jernst: nx is not officially supported in ltsp, there is a screen script from gadi which you can add to your ltsp install (which would make for the client part) but you also need to install a NX server
07:37
nx is fine for anything below 100Mbit/s
07:38
<jernst>
so I won't gain anything in a 100/1000MB network
07:38
only if I want to access the server from outside
07:39
<psycodad>
basically yes
07:39
<jernst>
still it could be interesting, I feel ssh/ldm is slower than xdmcp so with NX I could have security and good performances
07:39
<sep>
we use NX for connecting to the ltsp server from pupil/teachers home. (modem/ISDN/adsl and similar speeds)
07:39
<psycodad>
it gives you local performance over >=64Kbit/s links
07:40
however if you want performant remote acces, you only need the server part - the clients wont be diskless then i assume
07:41
<jernst>
why not ?

<jernst>
I just found some infos on the wiki, I'll make some experiments, thanks
07:45
<psycodad>
jernst: tftp booting over non-local networks sucks plainly
07:45
and some other problems
07:46
<jernst>
I wondered that too
07:47
<psycodad>
jernst: maybe my webpages (debian) about freenx help you: http://www.telemedia.ch/publ/
07:47
<jernst>
thanks psycodad
07:48
<prpplague>
psycodad: thats an understatement
07:48
<sep>
jernst, we use the nxapplet on a webserver for remote nx access any client (win/linux/mac) can open the preconfigured nxclient there, and they only need to provide ldap username and password for remote access.
07:48
<prpplague>
psycodad: i'll never forget the first time we tried ltsp over a 64k dds line
07:48
<jernst>
sep: sounds good
07:49
<psycodad>
lol, i have a 16/18Mbit Link and i didnt get tftp booting over it ;-) now mac mini at home is the ltsp box with nx screen scripts
07:49
well, to be honest, it worked occasionally but far from being predictable of even usable
07:50
<prpplague>
psycodad: yea, thats why we went with an ltsp hybrid, we had small local storage for the boot process
07:52
<psycodad>
btw: anybody has an idea how to decrease mouse speed and/or accel. ? I get crazy on rdesktop with this crappy mouse (one the unix session i help myself with xset m 1/6)

09:26
i read it's not?
09:26

Yes, localdevices works fine on edgy
09:26
CD's, floppies, and memory sticks are all supported.

efra, hola hispanohablante :p = Hi spanish speaking :p
10:54
<sbalneav>
There's literally TONS of way to monitor the server.
10:54
It just depends on what you want to monitor.
10:54
<g333k_work>
tons?
10:54
<sbalneav>
tons.
10:54
lots
10:55
there's hundreds of monitoring applications for linux.
10:55
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, ohh... I know but that works with ltsp?
10:55muh2000 has joined #ltsp
10:57
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, ohh... I know that there are many monitoring apps, but one that works with ltsp?
11:01
<sbalneav>
Well, there's nothing that needs to "work" with ltsp
11:02
Your users are just logged into the server.
11:02
So, you just need to know things like how much memory's being used, how much swap, how much cpu, etc.
11:03
Personally, I can do all that using ps, free, and top.
11:04
There are more graphical tools out there, and you can investigate some of the options, but really, managing an ltsp server really isn't any different than say managing a file server, or a database server.
11:04
that's the beauty of Linux: it's all just processes :)

<g333k_work>
sbalneav, Ok thanks.... Happens that I'm adding gradually clients to my server... and I want to know the day that I have not to add more anymore.. I dont want to kill my server :p
11:09
<sbalneav>
Top's excellent for that.
11:09
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, Yeah I'm learning how to read the numbers that the matrix gives to me
11:11
I'm afraid.. I have just 6m of free RAM
11:12
sbalneav, free tells me that I have 6m of free RAM but top tells me that I have 59m
11:23fxrsliberty has joined #ltsp
11:25
<sbalneav>
g333k_work: top will include the virtual memory in the count (i.e. your swap space). Free will only put the amout of free ram. Having little free ram is ok, as the system will use free ram for disk buffering, so expect it to be low. What you DON'T want to see is a lot of swapping going on. If you're swapping, that will be slowing things down. The ware to cure that is with more ram.
11:26
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, ooh ok.... Maybe using local apps will release charge my server?
11:28
<sbalneav>
If you're not swapping, then there's no need to worry.
11:28
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, Swap: 1052248 148300 903948
11:28
(results of free command)
11:28
<sbalneav>
Yo've used a bit of swap, but not much. about 10 %
11:29
What does the "uptime" command say?
11:29
<g333k_work>
yep... maybe adding 10 more clients today the numbers change
11:29
12:22:45 up 2 days, 2:41, 4 users, load average: 0.42, 0.24, 0.37
11:29
<sbalneav>
yeah, you're not loaded down.
11:30
<g333k_work>
I dont know what value of load average is ok
11:30
<sbalneav>
how many terminals
11:30
anything below 1 is perfect
11:30
you're at .37 for the 15 minute running average.
11:30moquist_ is now known as moquist
11:30
<sbalneav>
how many terminals do you currently have?
11:41
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, like 10
11:42
<sbalneav>
And how much ram do you have in the server?
11:42
<g333k_work>
I will add 10 per day.... till about 40 or 50
11:42
sbalneav, well 512M but it is a testing server... I will have a 4G RAM server
11:43
<sbalneav>
Yeah, for 20 people, you'll want a bit more than 512. But 4 gig will be plenty for at least 40 people.
11:43
Probably more, depending on what they're doing.

<g333k_work>
sbalneav, I have a question... I'm using ubuntu, how can I disable the graphic mode in my server? to save resources... I want to close xfce and go to the console mode; I've already edited the inittab file and set up the default runleve to 3, but I dont want reboot my server now, do you have any clue?
11:54
<sbalneav>
You won't save that much in resources, only a few megs, at best. You'd have to modify the gdm.conf file to do it, and restart gdm for it to take effect, which will kick out all your users. If you're not logged in on the console, it won't take much ram up, so why not just leave it the way it is?

hi everyone
11:56
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, Ok thanks buddy
11:56
<jernst>
I'm still experimenting with ltsp
11:56
but have the following problem:
11:57
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, about the last issue... my clients will only use firefox, doc viewer and pdf viewer
11:57
<jernst>
if I am using a client connected with 10/100 Mbit/s it will never go past nfs mounting and will sit with filename: /ltsp/i386/nbi.img in vt1
11:57
if I am using a client with gigabit lan everything works as expected
11:58
<sbalneav>
jernst: That's something with your switch.
11:58
You've probably got a managed switch, right?
11:58
<jernst>
not I have cheap d-link desktop switches
11:59
<sbalneav>
Well, something's misbehaving in the switch.
11:59
<jernst>
It feels like nfs is having timeout problems. I read some things about it in the wiki, but it didn't work
12:00
sbalneav: how-come that I can make xdmcp sessions just fine and mount my nfs share just fine when booting from the hdd ?
12:01
and I don't see any indication that portmap is running when the image downloaded with tftp is running, this of course will not help nfs working well
12:01
<sbalneav>
Dunno. Have you tried substituting a different switch?
12:01
Say, one that doesn't do gigabit?
12:01
<jernst>
sbalneav: I will try right away

what triggers ltspfsd? the udev-script? /lib/udev/add_fstab_entry
14:28
kdm
14:29
<sbalneav>
that won't work.
14:29
You'll need to use the ldm for localdevs to work.
14:29
<yanu>
acha, i have to use ldm?
14:29
ok, i'll try it out, thx

Hi, im trying to set up a thin client, so far i can boot the kernel, but it doesn't starts x (monitor says sync out of range) can anyone help me?
14:29
<sbalneav>
Sure, what are you hosting this on?
14:30
<mighty-d>
im running slackware 11 with ltsp 4-2
14:30
ehterboot with 2.6... kernel
14:30

What kind of monitor is on the client?
14:32
<mighty-d>
its a samsung syncmaster
14:32
<sbalneav>
Is it a flatpanel?
14:33
<mighty-d>
no
14:33
its crt
14:33
<sbalneav>
Well, try putting X_MODE_0 = 800x600 in your lts.conf, see if it likes that.
14:34
<mighty-d>
how should my ltsp.conf look like?
14:34
[ws011]
14:34
XF86CONFIG_FILE = X11/xorg-ws011.conf
14:34
<sbalneav>
Well, you've got a custom xorg.conf file there.
14:35
<mighty-d>
it seems the thin client doesn't find it
14:35
i wrote xorg-ws011.conf on /etc/lts/i386/etc/X11
14:35
is it right?
14:36
<sbalneav>
Probably not.
14:36
<mighty-d>
uh?
14:37
<sbalneav>
where did you put the xorg file?
14:37
in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11?
14:37
<mighty-d>
/etc/ltsp/i386/etc/X11
14:37
yes
14:37
i mean
14:37
<sbalneav>
etc or opt?
14:37
<mighty-d>
/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11
14:37
sorry
14:38
<sbalneav>
then you'll want XF86CONFIG_FILE = /etc/X11/xorg-ws011.conf
14:39
<mighty-d>
ok
14:39
now, i wrote what you told me and commented the XF86CONFIG_FILE = /etc/X11/xorg-ws011.conf
14:39
line
14:40
now it stays on rc.sysinit completed switching to multi-user mode
14:41
<sbalneav>
Why do you need a custom config?
14:42
<mighty-d>
no, i'm not using it now...
14:42
i deleted those lines
14:43
<sbalneav>
ok, so is it working now?
14:43
<mighty-d>
no
14:43
now it stays after rc.sysinit completed switching to multi-user mode
14:43
it doesn't start either X or ask me for login name or anything
14:44
<sbalneav>
why don't you paste your lts.conf file to pastebin.ca so I can see what you've got.
14:44
<mighty-d>
ok
14:44
<yanu>
sbalneav: ok, manualy starting ldm from vt2 (ldm vt4 :0) , i'll get a login and the localdevs works great,
14:44
<mighty-d>
whats the address?
14:44
<yanu>
sbalneav: how do it automaticly
14:44
mighty-d: http://pastebot.ltsp.org
14:44
<sbalneav>
what do you have for your SCREEN_0x parameter in lts.conf?
14:45
no, that one doesn't work anymore.
14:45
We haven't seen the fellow who hosts it for a bit.
14:45
<yanu>
screen_0 = shell _1 =shell _2 = shell
14:45
it's still in the topic
14:46
<sbalneav>
Yep, someone needs to change it.
14:46
yanu: SCREEN_07 = ldm should work.
14:47
<yanu>
another wierd thing, i can't use screen_01 , it askes for a username and pass ..
14:47
<mighty-d>
the url doesn't work
14:47
<yanu>
no nothing on screen 7

15:09
<sbalneav>

15:09
<mighty-d>

15:09

15:10
<yanu>
mighty-d: in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default change the line to this: DEFAULT vmlinuz ro initrd=initrd.img (drop quiet splash) and restart the terminal
15:10
<sbalneav>
ok, so WHAT do you have on the screen?
15:11
<mighty-d>
rc.sysinit completed, switching to multi-session mode
15:12
<sbalneav>
ok, remove the X_MODE_0 line
15:12
restart the terminal
15:13
<mighty-d>
and then i got noghing
15:15
brb
15:15
please wait a second
15:15
<sbalneav>
What do you get? The monitor out of range error?
15:15
<mighty-d>
no
15:15
now i dont get anything
15:15
well
15:16
the same as above
15:16
rc.sysinit completed, switching to multi-session mode
15:16
<sbalneav>
ok
15:16
Sounds like it isn't detecting the video card.
15:16
What kind of video card is it?
15:16
<mighty-d>
it came with an i810 motherboard (integrated)
15:17
is there a way to start in shell?
15:17
<sbalneav>
yep
15:17
SCREEN_01 = shell
15:17
<mighty-d>
can we test it?
15:17
<sbalneav>
instead of startx
15:18
<mighty-d>
ok
15:18
lets C
15:18
maybe it is a problem with ssh?
15:19
its the same thing
15:20
<sbalneav>
You said you were on Slackware, yes?
15:20
And you installed LTSP-4.2 from ltsp.org, right?
15:21
<mighty-d>
yes
15:24
<sbalneav>
Lets see your lts.conf now
15:24

15:26
<sbalneav>
You didn't happen to have an older version of ltsp installed, did you?
15:26
<mighty-d>
no i didn't
15:27
<sbalneav>
lets see your dhcpd.conf file
15:27
<cliebow_>
mighty-d: did you get your tftp prob figgered out?
15:28

<yanu>
on my terminals, with i810, the monitors are blinking like hell when i doesn't remove 'quiet splash' from /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
15:32
<sbalneav>
mighty-d: seems ok
15:33
<mighty-d>
could it be sshd?
15:34
<cliebow_>
why would sshd havr asnything to do with it in ltsp-4.2?
15:34uwe has joined #ltsp
15:34
<mighty-d>
isn't sshd the protocol used to grant access?
15:34
<sbalneav>
mighty-d: no, it won't
15:34
On ltsp5, yes
15:34
you're not using ltsp5
15:35
<mighty-d>
ok
15:35
i think my problem is with the "thing" that grants access, i dont get a login message
15:35
<cliebow_>
mightd: you are able to get a shell?
15:35
on client/
15:35
<mighty-d>

15:37
<mighty-d>

15:39
<sbalneav>

15:39

15:39
<mighty-d>

15:45
<sbalneav>
SCREEN_01 = shell ALWAYS works
15:45
I've never seen it NOT work.
15:46
<mighty-d>
this ltsp has become a personal challenge! :P
15:46
<sbalneav>
is there another client you can try?
15:46
I'm suspecting hardware trouble.
15:46
<mighty-d>
yes, but its the same thing there
15:46
<cliebow_>
heh.. i spent 18 months off and on with the Macintosh side
15:47
sbalneav:rc.sysinit ends with Switching to multi-session mode..where does control pass next
15:47
<sbalneav>
to inittab
15:48
<mighty-d>
ok, maybe thats it, i dont have a xdm , kdm or gdm service running
15:48
i don't like it
15:48
<cliebow_>
and inittab is in ram
15:49
mighty-d:how will you get a login without a display manager/
15:49
<mighty-d>
mmm
15:49
i dont use a display mananger to login
15:50
so i just go init 4 and thats it?
15:50
<cliebow_>
on the server that is fine..but in ltsp you are left with a shell on the client
15:51
<mighty-d>
ok
15:51
<cliebow_>
so you'd have to think about access to the server
15:51
<mighty-d>
so i just do init 4 and thats it?
15:51

hello everyone, thanks to someone in this channel (sorry I forgot his name) I know a little bit more about my ltsp/nfs issue... if the client has a gigabit nic and is connected to the server (which has a gigabit nic as well) using a gigabit switch, the nfs root is mounted ; if the client has a 100Mb nic and is connected to the server with a gigabit switch, the chroot is never mounted, if the client has a 100Mb nic ans is connected to the serve

what would be good to know is how to fix it ;-)

I'm wondering if it wouldn't improve nfs mounting if portmap was loaded during the initial boot
17:35

nfs is a funky protocol sometimes
