hi, i'm trying o solve my nfs problem when connecting a client that has a 100mbit nic to a gigabit server
06:46
after editing /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/pxelinux.cfg/default, should I make a ltsp-update-kernels (I'm using Ubuntu edgy)
06:49
<yanu>
think not, just fire the terminal
06:50
i think if you do ltsp-update-kernels, then your changes will be overwritten

Hello, can i ask a question?
06:57
<yanu>
no :)
06:57
<antocm>
ok :(
06:59andresmujica has joined #ltsp
07:00
<yanu>
hehe, shoot as the topic says
07:01
<antocm>
I would like to include a bootsplash under ltsp terminal boot. Is it included in standard LTSP kernel?
07:02
<yanu>
think so, look at /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/pxelinux.cfg/default
07:02
and theres a page on the wiki, iirc
07:02informatica has joined #ltsp
07:04
<antocm>
I dont have that directory, but i do have /tftpboot/lts/2.6.17.8-ltsp-1/pxelinux.cfg/default, and there is no mention to bootsplash
07:05
<yanu>
ach, you use ltsp4.2
07:05
<antocm>
The wiki page talks about patching a kernel, however that page was for 2.4. kernels, not for 2.6.x
07:05
<yanu>
i'm talking about ltsp5
07:05
<antocm>
I am using 4.2
07:05
<yanu>
then i can't help you
07:06
you have to wait for the devs to wake up :)
07:06
<antocm>
:-) what time is it there?
07:06
<yanu>
all different :) accuse god for that hehe
07:07
<antocm>
Ok, oll bring it here later. Thank you for replying...

yanu: the page onthe wikiabout botsplash seems outdated, do you know how to put the bootsplash image on edgy/muekow ?
07:17
<yanu>
no
07:17
i'm a user
07:18
<sep>
jernst, install the usplash package in the chroot, make sure your bootargs contain " quiet splash "
07:19
<yanu>
sep: i have to get rid of 'quiet splash', otherwise i see nothing on the screens (driver i810)
07:20
no bootsplash at all
07:20
<sep>
yanu, i have to add them to see it
07:20
otherways i get regular console messages
07:21
<yanu>
ya, if i let them in the default-file, the spash never appear
07:21
<sep>
ohh and recreate the initrd too i think is needed
07:21
<yanu>
i think it's a problem with the driver
07:27xbow_ is now known as xbow

sep: usplash is already installed, on VT:1 I can read: usplash: No usable theme for 1024x768
07:36
I fixed it I installed usplash-theme-ubuntu and thjen ltsp-update-kernels

<meduxa>
hi all, one of the technicians of the group I work for sent an e-mail about what we have done fon gettings the sound working on KDE with ltsp 4.2 . Can you guys give it a try and tell us if there is a better way for configure it?
11:03
it works fine with both KDE and gnome apps
11:03
the next step is putting the config on a kde profile so every user get it when they log in
11:03
envite is the guy
11:04J45p3r_ has quit IRC

i cant login to gnome with one of my users from the client
12:09
kde works fine, also new users
12:10
any clue?
12:10FernandoMM has quit IRC
12:10
<Gadi>
mathias: have the user logout and then do: ps -ef|grep <username>
12:10
see if there is a stray gconfd-2 process, and kill it if there is
12:11
that tends to be a culprit
12:12
<mathias>
i've tried to reboot the server, same problem
12:13
where on the server is the log for X? for the client
12:14prpplague has joined #ltsp
12:15
<cliebow__>
it isnt
12:15
it isd in ram on cklient
12:15
<mathias>
oki
12:16_LD_away_ has quit IRC
12:16_LD_Busy has joined #ltsp
12:17
<Gadi>
mathias: the X log has nothing to do with Gnome
12:17
if the user can log into kde and not gnome, its a gnome issue
12:18
<mathias>
ok, i thougt there maybe something in the log
12:18
but there wasnt
12:19
<Gadi>
it could be a problem with a /tmp file owned by the user
12:20
you could switch to the user and rm all /tmp files (which will remove all of the user's /tmp files)
12:21
<mathias>
in the server /tmp dir or client /mnt/tmp?
12:25
<Envite>
you can tru to log in gnome and look to the .xsession-errors file
12:25
s/tru/try
12:26
<mathias>
cant find any EE or WW in client logfiles
12:26
<Envite>
it uses to have some gnome starting info in that file and related ones
12:26
they're stored in user's home
12:29
<mathias>
1141719770.713830 Session manager: gsm-remote-desktop.c:128: activation of OAFIID:GNOME_RemoteDesktopServer failed: (null)
12:29
?
12:30
only thing i can find thats make any sense
12:30
the login is working from the server
12:30
but not client
12:32
<Gadi>
sorry, gotta run - I meant the /tmp on the server
12:32
gnome places a lot of config stuff in /tmp when it runs
12:33
<mathias>
removed a lockfile from there but it came back
12:33mrlinux_ has joined #ltsp
12:33
<Gadi>
on the server, if you: su - <username> and then rm -rf /tmp/*
12:33
<mathias>
oki
12:33
<Gadi>
it will remove only the /tmp files owned by the user
12:33
be careful to make sure you are the user and not root
12:33
and then, try logging the user in
12:33
<mathias>
got a lot of not permitted
12:33
<mrlinux_>
i have an error in my dhcp any help please
12:33
<Gadi>
good
12:34
<mathias>
:( didnt work
12:34
is there any userbased login script for the ltsp system?
12:34
<cliebow__>
mrlinux_:tell us
12:35
<mathias>
that could mess it up
12:35
<cliebow__>
or pastebot it..Not in here
12:35
<mrlinux_>
my error is The error was: drop_privileges: could not set group id: Operation not permitted
12:36Gadi has quit IRC
12:36
<cliebow__>
No No Gadi..Come back!!!!
12:41
<mrlinux_>
so what do i do
12:41
<vagrantc>
mathias: what do you mean by "userbased login script" ?
12:43
<mathias>
the problem only appears to one user, only on the thin-client and Gnome. I thought maybe i could have some corrupted ltsp-script for that user
12:43
that runs for that user
12:46
god damn computers are great! :D what would i otherwise to tonight :P
12:46
<mrlinux_>
The error was: drop_privileges: could not set group id: Operation not permitted
12:46
<mathias>
mrlinux_: when do u get that?
12:47
<mrlinux_>
when i try to start the server
12:47
<mathias>
dhcpd?
12:47
<mrlinux_>
/etc/init.d/dhcp*-server start
12:47
<mathias>
in fedora i only run: dhcpd
12:48
to start it
12:48
<mrlinux_>
i run edubuntu
12:48
i am a suse man but this is for school and i have to use edubuntu
12:48
i have to set up ltsp
12:49
<cliebow__>
mrlinux: never come across that..you are trying to start dhcp3-server as root/
12:49
<mrlinux_>
one sec
12:50
ok i tryed this sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp*-server start
12:50
i got this * Starting DHCP server dhcpd3 [fail]
12:52
<mathias>
tried to do: sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp*-server restart?
12:53
if the dhcp is already running
12:53
<mrlinux_>
nope
12:53
it is not runny
12:53
running
12:54
<mathias>
ok, googled on that and found that solution
12:54
<mrlinux_>
ok what
12:55
<mathias>
the restart thing
12:55
is that the only thing you get? not anything more above that line?
12:56
<mrlinux_>
all i get is that dhcp failed
12:57
i'll paste bin my config
12:58
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, My server died :(
12:58
I'm swapping almost 300M of 1Gb... do you think it is dangerous?
12:59
<Envite>
mrlinux_: check /var/log/syslog to see the CAUSE of dhcpd not starting
12:59nicoAMG has joined #ltsp
13:00
<Envite>
that is, do: /etc/init.d/dhcpd start ; tail /var/log/syslog
13:02
<mathias>
mrlinux_: found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LTSPServerSetup, its not about the fail but a guide, maybe something to look at
13:02
<mrlinux_>
first i have to get the dhcp working
13:03
http://pastebin.com/837060
13:03
<g333k_work>
Can somebody help me how to manage the load of my server?
13:04
<mrlinux_>
afk
13:05
<mathias>
mrlinux_: do you have a dhcp conf?
13:05
<Envite>
http://pastebin.com/837060 does not load for me
13:05
<mathias>
hm.. not me either
13:06
<Envite>
maybe pastebin is heavily loaded
13:06
first page works
13:07
<mathias>
or a huge conf file :P
13:07
<Envite>
From pastebin main: " Sorry folks, this hasn't been performing too well recently. Fixes are coming!"
13:07
<mathias>
ok
13:07
<mrlinux_>
ok i can dcc the actual file
13:07
maybe
13:07
<mathias>
i dont know if you need anything more in the conf than whats on http://www.edubuntu.org/GettingStarted
13:08
<Envite>
i think first is to know why dhcpd does not start
13:09
I'm going out for a coffe
13:09
<mathias>
but if you dont have a conf it wont start
13:09
maybe
13:09
a wrong conf i mean
13:10
<mrlinux_>
i think it's set wrong can some one look at it
13:11
i'll dcc it
13:11
<mathias>
i can make a try
13:13
<mrlinux_>
wont go
13:13
<mathias>
mail? storskogen_7@hotmail.co
13:13
com
13:14
<mrlinux_>
sent
13:14
<mathias>
got it
13:17
<mrlinux_>
ok whats wrong
13:19
<mathias>
I cant find anything wrong, i have compared to mine and it looks almost the same
13:19
did you try Envite's suggestion
13:19
<Envite> that is, do: /etc/init.d/dhcpd start ; tail /var/log/syslog
13:20
<mrlinux_>
i know thats why i m like wtf

I'm using Ubuntu 6.10.. any good How-To about installing FreeNX on Ubuntu / Debian?
13:31
<dberkholz>
probably. search your forums or google it
13:32* vagrantc suspects gadi knows a thing or two about freenx and ltsp
13:32
<mathias>
mrlinux_, Damn! cant find any sample dhcpd.conf for you :(
13:32
<mrlinux_>
i am getting pissed because i need this

<sbalneav>
g333k_work: ping
13:36andresmujica has left #ltsp
13:36
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, pong
13:36
<sbalneav>
Run out of memory?
13:37
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, I think yes... I just add 512M more
13:37
<sbalneav>
That should help
13:37
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, We have 15 clients running just firefox and XFCE X manager
13:37
<sbalneav>
It's not "dangerous" to swap, as you asked, it's just slow.
13:37
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, what about the size of the swap?
13:37
<mathias>
mrlinux_, try: touch /var/state/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
13:38
<sbalneav>
Well, one gig's ok
13:38
<mathias>
and then ..../dhcpd -d -f
13:38
<mrlinux_>
touch: cannot touch `/var/state/dhcp/dhcpd.leases': No such file or directory
13:38
<mathias>
last is for debug mode
13:39
try -d -f then
13:39
<mrlinux_>
what
13:39
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, My server is a P4 3.0Ghz HT with 1G of RAM now..... how many clients using just firefox will be able to support?
13:40
<mathias>
mrlinux_, /etc/init.d/dhcpd -d -f
13:41
<sbalneav>
It depends upon what they're browsing to, but with 1G of ram, you should be able to support at least 30 or so.
13:41
<mathias>
mrlinux_, sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp*-server -d -f
13:42
mrlinux_, found a how-to at: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DHCP/x369.html#AEN422
13:42
mrlinux_, look at 4.4 Starting the server
13:42
<sbalneav>
mrlinux_: You the same one from edubuntu?
13:43
<Envite>
re
13:47
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, now my server is using 0 swap
13:47
<sbalneav>
There you go
13:47
In an LTSP server, ram is the most important thing you can add.
13:50
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, is there a way to know which clients are alive, working ok?
13:50
<sbalneav>
Well, ping will work
13:51
as well, you can see who's logged in with ps
13:51
the "w" command should also tell you who's logged in.
13:51
<g333k_work>
sometimes they answer to the ping but they are not working ok...
13:52
ps -w ?
13:52
ohh
13:52
ps aux | grep ws
13:52
?
13:52rangerhomezzz is now known as rangerpb
13:53
<sbalneav>
No, just "w"
13:53
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, what w command do you refer? is it a ltsp command?
13:53
<sbalneav>
No, it's a unix command
13:53
just type "w" and hit enter
13:53
<Envite>
w is mostly the same as who

g333k_work: and when you say connected, do you mean logged in as a user? or just at the login screen?
13:57
<sbalneav>
Is someone logged in on ws002?
13:57
<g333k_work>
vagrantc, I updated ubuntu dapper to edgy
13:57
sbalneav, yep
13:57
sbalneav, me.. I have this pc in my side as a test client
13:57
<sbalneav>
Hm, interesting
13:58
<vagrantc>
if you're using ldm, rather than gdm or kdm, user's may not show up in the w or who commands
13:58
unless they have an xterm open
13:58
<sbalneav>
vagrantc: ssh doesn't make an entry in utmp?
13:58
ick
13:58
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: i don't think so, no.
13:58
sbalneav: because it's run as the user, not as root. so it doesn't have write permission to utmp
13:59
or wtmp, or whatevertmp
13:59
<g333k_work>
vagrantc, I'm usign gdm + XFCE
13:59
<sbalneav>
when you first ssh in though, the main daemon runs as root, and forks off a copy. I guess Theo & company drop privs almost immediately, and don't cut a utmp record.
13:59
<vagrantc>
g333k_work: ok, then users should show up when they log in.
14:00
<g333k_work>
vagrantc, show in the w command?
14:00
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: yeah. maybe there's a way to configure openssh to log the users in... not sure.
14:00
sbalneav: i also think it would be difficult on logout to handle it properly.

the best way I found is checking my clients with the top command... I see if they are using firefox
14:05
Is there a way to show a popup message in my clients? ie. "The PC id going to shutdown in 5minutes, Save your work now!"

how do i assign a protocol to eth1
14:17

a protocol?
14:17
<mrlinux_>
tcp
14:18
udp
14:18rangerpb has left #ltsp
14:18
<Envite>
a NIC can use every protocol, typically
14:19
<mrlinux_>
yes i know but how do i make eth1 show that it has at least some protocol attached
14:19
<sbalneav>
mrlinux_: Is the interface configured?
14:20
ifconfig eth1 should tell you this.

start by getting eth1 to have an IP address
14:24mdz has joined #ltsp
14:24
<mrlinux_>
ok but i am trying to get my internal dhcp to give it an ip but my dhcp fails when i start it
14:26
<sbalneav>
You don't have an IP address assigned to eth1
14:26
<timborn>
any clues in the logfile on the DHCP server (typ /var/log/messages or /var/log/dhcpd)
14:26
<mrlinux_>
yes
14:26
<sbalneav>
Are you running Edubuntu?
14:27prpplague has quit IRC
14:28
<mrlinux_>
yes
14:28
<sbalneav>
ok
14:28
So, go to the System menu, and select Administration
14:28
Select "Networking"
14:29
Click on the Eth1 card
14:29
and select the "Properties" button
14:29
Give it a static IP address
14:29
<mrlinux_>
of what
14:29
192
14:30
<sbalneav>
Well, is all you're going to hang off of eth1 going to be terminals?
14:30
Do you have a separate ethernet switch for this interface?
14:30
<mrlinux_>
i will
14:31
afk
14:31
<sbalneav>
ok, then the simplest will be to assign it the standard address
14:31
192.168.0.254
14:32
<mrlinux_>
this is what i assigned 192.168.0.203 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway is blank
14:34
what now
14:35
i fucking love you
14:35
sorry
14:35
afk
14:35
<sbalneav>
Keep the swearing down, please
14:36
what does ifconfig eth1 show now
14:36
<mrlinux_>
that is y i said sorry
14:36
<cliebow__>
I'm melting....
14:36
nite from ellsworth maine!
14:36
<mrlinux_>
it shows the ip and now my dhcp server is running
14:37
<g333k_work>
hi, how can I slow the mouse pointer speed?
14:37cliebow__ has quit IRC
14:37cliebow_ has quit IRC
14:38
<sbalneav>
ok
14:38
so, you should be able to try to boot clients off that interface
14:39bobby_C has joined #ltsp
14:39
<mrlinux_>
now i have the dhcp running how do i enable ltsp
14:39
but don't i need to set up the routing table
14:39
<sbalneav>
It should be enabled already.
14:40
No, you won't need routing, as the clients processes run on the server.
14:40
g333k_work: X_MOUSE_* parameters in lts.conf
14:40
<mrlinux_>
how do i set up clients
14:40
<sbalneav>
Set them to pxe boot
14:41
from their network card.
14:41
You'd usually do that in the bios setup
14:42
<g333k_work>
sbalneav, I have read... but I dont see anything related with speed, maybe the resolution is related to speed=
14:42
??
14:43
<mrlinux_>
ok how do i check to see if my pxe client on my sever work
14:43
<sbalneav>
Yes, resolution affects the "speed"
14:44
mrlinux_: Try booting a machine
14:44
off of eth1
14:44
So, connect up a thin client to eth1, and set it to boot pxe from the bios.
14:44
<mrlinux_>
does the machine have to have anything installed
14:45
<sbalneav>
Doesn't even need a hard drive.

Does anyone knows how to make bootsplash out of plain LTSP kernel 2.6.17 ?? Do you still have to manually patch the kernel?
18:02
<cliebow>
best speak to jammcq
18:03
<antocm>
He's not around right now. Thank you for the hint.
18:07
<Kodex>
antocm, yes, you still go to patch it. "Piercing" the init with 'splash' is a little different though.
18:11pipedream has joined #ltsp

in debian or ubuntu, you should be able to use usplash and/or splashy without many changes.

Do you know where i can find an 2.6.17 LTSP kernel already patched with bootslplash?

no idea. i prefer to use unpatched kernels.
