hi all. correct me if i'm wrong - does lts.conf go in the chroot the client uses, or the server /etc?
01:27
i get an error about teh line "LOCAL_STORAGE = Y$
01:27
" in my lts.conf
01:31
np. in the chroot.
01:32
probably pebkac... lets see anyway
01:34
ah. didnt have a [macaddress] bit
01:35
are Y and TRUE interchangeable in the config file?
01:36
brb, testing client.
01:39

localdev works with ubuntu and ltsp5
02:48
you need to use ldm als login-deskop-manager

I reckon I followed the proper installation guide. But tftp server does not respond to requests. DHCP serve IP address but no tftp any pointers
06:06
<cliebow>
be sure it is running..netstat -anp|grep ":69"
06:06
which tftp server?
06:06
in which distro?
06:07
<blablaman>
it is running - just verified
06:07
<cliebow>
then check -s argument in /etc/inetd.conf or perhaps /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
06:07
<blablaman>
I'm running k12ltsp on fedora5
06:07
<cliebow>
so the latter
06:08
prob -s /tftpboot
06:08
so that is prepended to the filename statment in dhcpd.conf
06:08
Also be sure you have a next-server statement
06:09
<blablaman>
server_args = -s /tftpboot
06:09
<cliebow>
grep filename /etc/dhcpd.conf
06:13
<blablaman>
next-server was pointing to default setting.
06:14
<cliebow>
is that good?
06:15
<blablaman>
I've only 1 nic and am using different subnet. What is the issue with the -s argument to tftp
06:20
<cliebow>
grep filename /etc/dhcpd.conf..dhould be like /lts/-->
06:20
next-server must point to where your tftp is running
06:21
if dhcp daemon >3.9.3
06:21
3.0.3
06:23
i ama off to school..bbiab
06:23
<blablaman>
cheers
06:24
<cliebow>
ill look in from there...

hi
06:32
i have done ubuntu
06:33
i have installed ltsp that shiped with ubuntu
06:33
its not ppicking tftp
06:33
why
06:38
any idea
06:43
helo
06:43
any idea
06:45
<yanu>
for ubuntu-edgy: next-server (in /etc/tftp/dhcpd.conf) must point to where your tftp is running

06:57
<ogra>
you dont need to set next-server as long as the server is the same machine as the dhcp server
06:58
(in any ubuntu dhcp that is)
07:02
<yanu>
ogra: it took me a day to figure out that if ltsp is installed, that dhcpd.conf is located in /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf, why is that?
07:03
<ogra>
because we store all overriding config files for ltsp in there, in edgy syslog was added for example ...
07:04
that way you dont need to touch the default config file and dont mess with users ecisting setups ...
07:05
<yanu>
ach, normaly dhcp is set with ltsp-manager, that's te reason? i did it manually, and didn't know the change
07:06
here ltsp-manager didn't work, it gave an error, i had to change this:
07:06
in file /usr/bin/ltsp-manager change line 18
07:06
self.wTree=gtk.glade.XML ("./ltsp-manager.glade")
07:06
to
07:06
self.wTree=gtk.glade.XML ("/usr/share/ltsp-manager/ltsp-manager.glade")
07:06
<ogra>
yep
07:07
<yanu>
yet another thingy: could you mark an your webpage, for localdev to work, people need to use ldm (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EnableLTSP5LocalDevices)
07:07
<ogra>
the one in edgy is only for coders to get to the sorcecode quickly ... for feisty we have a spec i'm working on to make it work correctly
07:07
<yanu>
that was also something i didn't know
07:07
<ogra>
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/ltsp-management-gui
07:08
yanu, the docs all assume you go with a default ubuntu-ltsp ... feisty will have localdev support for xdmcp, sbalneav is working on that atm
07:09
<yanu>
nothing worked with the default ubuntu-ltsp
07:09
<ogra>
did you file bugs ?
07:10
<yanu>
no, i have made a persenal list, things that didn't work here, you want it?
07:11
where to fill in bugs? i never done that
07:12
<ogra>
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+filebug
07:12
assign them to the package ltsp ...
07:13
<yanu>
wierd, i already have an account there :)
07:15
<ogra>
heh
07:16
<yanu>
i ordered some cd's, that's why :)
07:17
<ogra>
ah
07:18
<yanu>
is this bad? LDM does not warn when a user is already logged in
07:19
<ogra>
hmm, might be ... ldm needs some pam message integration i guess ...
07:19
<yanu>
i just read it in the bugs
07:19* msinhore is back (gone 12:41:30)
07:19
<ogra>
yeah its an open whishlist bug iirc ...
07:22
<yanu>
ogra: are you aware of problems with /lib/udev/add_fstab_entry if you use also the server to run X
07:25
<ogra>
?? can you be more detailed ?
07:26
<yanu>
well, when sticking in a usbstick, a window pops up, to open a filebrowser, to mount the device
07:26
the filebrowser opens, but the mounting doesn't happen.
07:27
reason i found: in /lib/udev/add_fstab_entry there's a line that adjust the /etc/fstab
07:29
echo "/dev/${1} ${MOUNTPOINT} ${2} defaults 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
07:29
<ogra>
yeah ...
07:29
<yanu>
i had to change it to
07:29
echo "/dev/${1} ${MOUNTPOINT} ${2} defaults,user 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
07:30
so it could be mounted
07:30
<ogra>
the problem here is that the subsequent scripts wont find the ssh socket
07:30
no
07:30
there is no user
07:30
not on thin clients
07:30
the mounting on the client happens as root ..
07:31
the fuse mount from the server to the client happens as user
07:31
<yanu>
uhu, i talk about the X-session on the server
07:31
there is where the problem exits
07:31
<ogra>
??
07:31
/lib/udev/add_fstab_entry runs on the client
07:31
<yanu>
i am running X on the ltsp server
07:31
it is also installed on the server
07:32
<ogra>
with xdmcp suport ?
07:32
no
07:32
then you broke something
07:33
the ltspfsd is strictly a client package, see the package description
07:33
<yanu>
i did a normal install, plugged in a stick, and had a problem, so i search where it was ...
07:33
<ogra>
"... that connects with the daemon on the client. This package
07:33
contains the daemon to be run on the ltsp thin-client..."
07:34
<yanu>
ach, indeed, i installed first ltspfsd, later, after reading what you said, i removed it, apparently no all of it
07:34
ok, now i get it
07:35
<ogra>
i'll talk to sbalneav, it should depend on ltsp-client which is not installable on a server

<yanu>

07:58

Empiric: about Ltsp 5?
08:02
<Empiric>
i ahve put three clints just for test
08:02
i did apt-get install ltsp-server
08:02
i wont know its ltsp 5
08:02
ubuntu-edge builtin ltsp 5 i think
08:03
after picking ip it wont go to ltsp server
08:03
<yanu>
if ubuntu edgy, it's ltsp5
08:03
<Empiric>
i wont see any thing in logs
08:04
ok
08:04
here is my dhcp
08:04
http://pastebin.com/836106
08:04
what ptah should i use for filename
08:07
<yanu>
hmm, pastebin.com ??
08:07
pastebin.ca
08:07
<Empiric>
pastebin.com
08:07
any prb in viewing the page
08:08
<yanu>
now ok
08:09
<Empiric>
any prb
08:10
<yanu>
filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0"; i have filename "ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
08:10
option root-path "192.168.0.11:/opt/ltsp/i386"; i have option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386";
08:11
but if that would make a diffirence ??
08:11
<Empiric>
no i wont think so
08:11
what abt filename
08:11
is that correct
08:12
<yanu>
think so
08:12
<Empiric>
then
08:12
<yanu>
with or without an / , don't think it makes a diff
08:12
<Empiric>
whast the idea
08:13andresmujica has joined #ltsp

<Empiric>
tftp cant open connection
08:14
<yanu>
i would try : subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 { and range 192.168.0.200 192.168.0.250;
08:14
staying in the same subnet
08:14
<Empiric>
well if i from my machien do ftp 192.168.0.11
08:15
its wont ftp 192.168.0.11
08:15
ftp: connect: Connection refused
08:15
ftp> quit
08:15
my ip is 192.168.1.232
08:15
<yanu>
is your tftp running?
08:16
/etc/inetd.conf -> tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot
08:16
<Empiric>
ya
08:17
its running
08:18
so u mean its only network defference
08:18
right
08:18
subnets basically
08:18
<yanu>
is it working right now?
08:18
<Empiric>
no
08:18
what
08:18
<yanu>
ach ok
08:18
<Empiric>
ftp is ruunig
08:18
any idea
08:19
<yanu>
did you change the dhcpd.conf , everything to 192.168.0.x ?
08:19
restart the dhcp3-server
08:20

ogra_: for ldm, ssh_keys, must they been set manually?
08:31
<ogra_>
the chroot installer runs ltsp-update-sshkeys in the end of the install ... if you changed ip's you either need to ifdown/up the interface or run ltsp-update-sshkeys again
08:31
that will copy the keys
08:32

Hello yanu
09:16

filled in some bugreports
09:34

Where?

launchpad ;)
09:35
hey scottie :)
09:35

09:35* ogra waves from the first fat-client built with the new plugin
09:36
<sbalneav>
Ohhh!
09:36
Excellent
09:36
<ogra>
well, this partz was easy, even though there were a lot more dirs we need in rw mode
09:37
now everything depends on ldap auth and mounted /home
09:37
<sbalneav>
Ah, I sorta suspected we'd need more than just the gdm log rw
09:37
Yeah, ldap's still the blocker.
09:37
<ogra>
yeah, dbus was a bit nasty to me :)
09:37
and /media needs to be writeable for automounting devices
09:38
buut currently i'm surfinbg, IRCing and listening to my music from the mounted ipod via rhythmbox
09:39
<sbalneav>
I've been playing around with gnash the last day or so.
09:39
They're in the process of adding movie support now.
09:39
<ogra>
nice
09:39
is it finally half way stable ?
09:39
<sbalneav>
The big win from my point of view is: gstreamer's a backend for sound.
09:40
It's getting there.
09:41Kodex has quit IRC
09:41* ogra needs to find some food ... bbl
09:41
<sbalneav>
If sabdfl's looking for a place to spend some money where it will make a better out-of-the-box experience, helping to get gnash to the point where it's a viable replacement for... other products :) would be a huge win. Flash support out of the box, and flawless with thin clients would be a huge win.

how you doing?
10:25
<Empiric>
i have ubuntu-edgy
10:25
<sbalneav>
Doing fine
10:25
<Empiric>
its ltsp 5 i think
10:26
<sbalneav>
then you don't use ltspcfg
10:26
<Empiric>
is there any prb in ltsp 5
10:26
ya
10:26
i just create my lts.conf
10:26
well i wont need it
10:26
ubuntu by default logins
10:27
<sbalneav>
The lts.conf file should be created automatically when you do an ltsp-build client
10:27
<Empiric>
well i create it
10:27
it wont login
10:27
as soon as enter username paswdor
10:27
scren blinks and again i got login screen
10:27
this si odd
10:27
what should id o
10:27
am stuck
10:28
<sbalneav>
ok, so what you need to do is do a "sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys"
10:28g333k_work has quit IRC
10:28* vagrantc really thinks ldm should properly implement ssh-askpass and handle when the keys have changed...
10:29
<sbalneav>
Probably.
10:31
<Empiric>
i did
10:31
nothing isd seen
10:31
nothing happens on server
10:31

<highvoltage>
hi, I need some help with ltspfs on Ubuntu Edgy with LTSP 4.2. anyone brave anough to help me? :)
12:46
<vagrantc>
!ubuntu

<ltspbot>
vagrantc: "ubuntu" is a Debian based GNU/Linux distrubution that includes a Ubuntu specific version of LTSP. It can be found at http://www.ubuntulinux.org
12:46
<jammcq>
highvoltage: what's the problem?
12:47
<vagrantc>
Empiric: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
12:47
!topic

<jammcq>
hey jonathon
12:48
<vagrantc>
ltspbot: learn ubuntuquick as https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
12:48
<ltspbot>
vagrantc: The operation succeeded.
12:48
<highvoltage>
I had this working in dapper with ubuntu 4.2, so I just copied my ltsp directory to the edgy installation
12:49
<jammcq>
ok, that's the easy part
12:49
do you have the FUSE module loaded?
12:49
<highvoltage>
then I installed ltspfs on the server, and copied the files acrros to start ltsp in the gnome session
12:49
yes, fuse is loaded
12:49
<jammcq>
is the user a member of the fuse group?
12:49
<highvoltage>
yes, the user is a member of the fuse group
12:49
<jammcq>
does lbussd get started?
12:49
<highvoltage>
I'm not sure
12:49
because the "Drives" directory doesn't exist
12:50
<jammcq>
the 12-point troubleshooting document would be VERY helpful for you to figure out where it's failing
12:50
<highvoltage>
is there a 12 point troubleshooting document?
12:50
<jammcq>
there's a script that runs on login that probably isn't running
12:50
<highvoltage>
I think that's the problem
12:50
it should work if I manually run it as that user, right?
12:50
<jammcq>
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LTSP-42-LocalDev#Troubleshooting
12:51
<highvoltage>
jammcq: thank you, I will look at that right now
12:53jernst has joined #ltsp
12:53
<highvoltage>
bingo!
12:53
for some reason 51lbus-start is not executable
12:54
thanks jammcq
12:54
<jammcq>
heh
12:54
that's scotty's beautiful troubleshooting document
12:54
<highvoltage>
he's really good at documentation
12:55
hmmm... seems like I'm missing a perl module too, it says Can't locate X11/Protocol.pm in @INC
12:55
<jammcq>
yeah, you'll need that
12:56
<highvoltage>
hmmm... any idea what the ubuntu pacakge might be called?
12:57
<jammcq>
in Dapper, it's called: libx11-protocol-perl
12:57
prolly the same in edgy
12:57
<highvoltage>
ok, I'll try that
13:02
<jernst>
would it be possible to improve nfs mounting by having portmap start before mounting the root fs ?
13:03
<jammcq>
how would that help?
13:03izak has joined #ltsp
13:04
<jernst>
jammcq: I (and I see other people do to) have big problem with nfs and ltsp
13:04
the problem is that it won't mount (probably because of race condition/timeout)
13:04
<jammcq>
but how does portmap help that situation?
13:04
<jernst>
if the server is using gigabit and the client has a 100Mbit nic or is connected using a 100Mbit switch
13:05
jammcq: I'm not really an expert about nfs, I just know that when you don't have portmap installed and try to mount an nfs share it takes longer and I thought it could help with the timeout
13:06
btw do you have some advice to fix it another way (I tried what I read in the wiki, but it didn't seemed to change anything)
13:06
<jammcq>
that's got nothing to do with portmap. that is because as of the 2.6 kernel, the NFS blocksize is 32k, and when you try fragmenting 32kb into a 1500 byte MTU, and then throttle it down from 1000mb/sec to 100mb/sec, problems arise
13:06izak has left #ltsp
13:06
<jernst>
ok, and is there a working workaround (edgy, muekow) ?
13:07
<jammcq>
in a NORMAL setting, where you are doing an NFS mount from one machine to another, you need portmapper for lockd. but in the case of LTSP, you don't need that, cuz we mount the filesystem readonly, so we don't need mountd
13:07
<jernst>
I see, so I guess the init script mount the root fs with -nolock then
13:07
<jammcq>
the speed/blocksize problem is documented on the wiki, but i'm not sure if the MOPTS parameter is recognized by LTSP-5's initramfs
13:08
<Gadi>
heh, just found a bit of a problem in the edgy ltsp screen scripts
13:08
hello, all, btw
13:08
<jernst>
I tried both MOPTS and NFSOPTS to no avail
13:09
<Gadi>
ogra: u around?
13:09
<jernst>
jammcq: in the ubuntu ltsp's section when it says you have to append NFSOPTS=..., does it mean append on the same line as the existing line or append to the file (next line) ?
13:10
<jammcq>
it's a KERNEL commandline option
13:10
so, you need to pass it on the same line as the other options
13:11
<jernst>
ok that's what I thought and what I did... too bad it still doesn't work
13:11
maybe I'll have more luck adding the options in the script that calls nfsmount ?
13:13
<jammcq>
jernst: I'd suggest talking to ogra when you get a chance. he wrote that part of it, and understands it very well
13:13
<jernst>
ok thanks, I'll try to talk about it with him

jammcq: thanks, it seems to work now :)
13:45
<vagrantc>
i think the ubuntu initramfs-tools uses kernel commandline options more similar to the in-kernel nfsroot support.
13:46
nfsroot=<serer-ip:>/path/to/nfsroot<,nfsopt1,nfsopt2,nfsopt3>
13:47
presuming they pulled my patches from debian's initramfs-tools, anyways.
13:48Sp0oKeR has quit IRC
13:57
<jernst>
vagrantc: so I should add this in /tftpboot/lts/2.4.26-ltsp-3/pxelinux.cfg/default ?
13:57
<vagrantc>
jernst: not if you're using ubuntu's ltsp.
13:57
jernst: that sounds like an ltsp 4.x install
13:58
<jernst>
vagrantc: in http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/NFS#NFS_Server_not_responding, they speak about it in " Different syntax in ubuntu's LTSP version"... where would you put your nfsroot line then ?
14:00
<vagrantc>
/var/lib/tftpboot/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
14:00
or maybe without the i386, depending on which version
14:01
<jernst>
ok thanks, I'll try
14:02
one last question : is it nfsroot=<serer-ip:>/path/to/nfsroot<,nfsopt1,nfsopt2,nfsopt3> or nfsroot="<serer-ip:>/path/to/nfsroot<,nfsopt1,nfsopt2,nfsopt3>" or NFSROOT="<serer-ip:>/path/to/nfsroot<,nfsopt1,nfsopt2,nfsopt3>" ?
14:03
<vagrantc>
lowercase.
14:03
<> indicate an optional argument
14:08
<jernst>
ok but what about the quotes ?
14:08
<vagrantc>
shouldn't need them, but shouldn't hurt either.
14:15
<jernst>
ok I'll try and report back (then if it works we could update the wiki)

It feels so good to copy data from a failed RAID to a fresh pair of drives

<PMantis>
I really could've used a 3ware card... would've saved me about 3-4 hours of playing with dmraid.
22:13
<jammcq>
I had a drive failure in my big machine last week. I popped the new drive in, it automatically rebuilt the array, and Duane just kept on working, without noticing a problem
22:13
that's how it's supposed to work :)
22:13
<PMantis>
Yeah
22:14
I happened to have a server that wasn't used. Ordered 2 350GB drives, and build a new server with the pair.
22:14
Happened to have on-board "RAID" with the MB's SATA controller.
22:15
Had to follow the Ubuntu Wiki's "fareraid" howto.
22:15
Uses a device mapper to see the drives as a single device... so at least it's a hardware assisted RAID.
22:17
jammcq, so, how'd you *know* it was a drive failure? Have a real server class machine with lights?
22:19
Whatever the situation, it's gotta be bed time... too many late nights this week.
