Empiric: I don't know, I'm not an expert, just curiosity... "some of my thinclients".... are them different in hardware / config?
basiacally are of them r local machine
its only 3
any idea how i fix them
i have defined X_MODE_0= 800x600
but no use
how i check my thinclients are reading lts.conf
I've no idea, sorry
what about not setting it at all? should find the best resolution automatically
but what do you mean with "blinking"?
the image is ok but is going on and off? or is distorced / ruined?
or check a good value pair for the X_HORZSYNC parameter
or you can force the video chipset, if it does not recognize it automatically, like with XSERVER = via
if you have a via one (or ati...)
I mean, if you have ati, write "ati" instead :)
in any case, the X-Window SERVER is run on the client side, so google to find how to see how to know what setting is it using
yes its going on nad off
can u hhave exact things whete i put X_HORXSYNC
what do you mean? look at your monitor hardware specifications
if you are asking me what values use
Empiric: where are you from? are you an asterisk pbx expert?
is there an LTSP client that runs on top of win32?
markit: blinkenlights! woot
Quintin: blinkenlights ?
why u r asking that?

Empiric: because I have troubles understanding your english, and because I see "asterisk" in your irc signature
i have some thinclients
yes, you told me
wondering if Empiric is a secret agent, that can't answer my previous questions...
which when boot starts bliking
well sory i was on phone
where i put X_HORIZSYNC
well, where are the other X options for that specific client
of course in lts.conf
# ATI Card with ViewSonic P815 21" monitor running at 1800x1440
X_MODE_0 = 1800x1440 250 1800 1896 2088 2392 1440 1441 1444 1490 +HSync +VSync
X_HORZSYNC = 30-115
X_VERTREFRESH = 50-160
or better sampel for an LCD
# 17" flat panel. Had to add the X_HORZSYNC, otherwise it would do only 1280x960
X_MODE_0 = 1280x1024
X_HORZSYNC = "60-70"
(info taken from internet, or from some other ltsp documentation, don't remember)
i have 15' LCD
hai i have no entries in /etc/hosts
so what i do
get an installation guide, I'm not expert, and to be sincere, is long time I don't look at ltsp
but don't think that /etc/hosts is needed
and don't know how it could be related with your video blinking, no?
if you specify IP in your configs, hosts is not necessary, I guess
so, I got this ltsp-server thingie installed
is there a LiveCD with the client?
Quintin: to boot? you need a PXE or whatever boot rom in your ethernet adapter, or prepare a floppy boot, as far as I remember
better check the documentation :)
markit: ewwwwwwwww I just want it to werk :P
there is some PXE crap when I power up this computer
if you have correctly configured dhcp, it should find it and load the OS from the ltsp server
dhcp on the server side,of course
I have a diff box that is dhcp server...
couldn't a livecd using remote X login replace all this ltsp stuff? :P
Quintin: sure, if you want to manage 50 cd-rom drives and 50 cds for your 50 terminals.
neuralis: cd's never fail. unless you do something dumb like put a bunch of stickers on one side. cd-roms almost never fail
er, cds, not "cd's", oops
Quintin: CDs fail *way* more often than boot roms.
most network cards support PXE these days- it's a simple matter of turning it on.
my test client box supports PXE, yes
but why setup all these services etc.. when I can just boot a livecd and login with x.. seems to be more work
anything that is easily removable will be removed. and people will want to put their audio CDs in, and wonder why everything stopped working...
Quintin: if you think it's easier with a livecd, implement it with a livecd :P
i'll stick to network boot, thank you very much.
so how well does something like playing a movie work with this?
The requested URL /documentation/index.php was not found on this server.
the prices on some of these 'thin clients' are enough to buy a whole regular PC
are they the fanless kind?
tend not to break down as much without any moving parts.
maybe you are all crazy :p
yeah. thousands of happy users can only be wrong.
all depends on what you are doing
probably more useful for 100 seat net than 10 seat
i tend to find the usefulness at about 3 seats, myself.
as it's essentially one computer.
you didn't answer my question.. how is playing video .. ??
can something like that be done effectively? or is there too much network overhead ?
video can be hard if you're using encrypted connections. sometimes the remote sound gets messed up. but you can also run movies using local applications.
like many things, it depends
yes- running some or all of the applications on the local hardware, rather than the server.
that sort of defeats the purpose doesn't it? can that be automated? the making applications local bit
if all the machines are using the same root filesystem, you only still are essentially managing one installation for however many seats.
and what do you mean by automated?
well the clients don't have disks.. so how can the app run locally?
the same way they run at all.. over the network.
I'm lost :)
but the applicaion is using the local machines CPU and RAM.
but the filesystem is over the network.
does that clear it up?
sort of. how would you make the app use local resources instead of server resources?
there are numerous ways to set it up.
here is a probably very silly question
the simplest, is to just run all the applications locally, and just have your server be a file server.
here is question showing my ignorance, eh :P
|02:24||* vagrantc waits only slightly patiently|
let's say you have app xyz, that uses 16m of core. 100 users have it open .. server uses 1600m of ram?
only if it's a very poorly written program.
well I made it, so.....
most programs in linux use shared memory
but let's say it's GAIM. or k3b. or or or .. firefox
or opera. that's a good one
it varies widely, but generally each additional instance of an application is only an additional 5-20% RAM used.
to do a basic network boot... there is transfer of like 5m or so, ja? in setup as you describe, to have all things run locally and have the server used only as file server.. how much data is transferred when booting?
though firefox is prone to wasting lots of memory ...
firefox on linux = sux
hmmm... well, a traditional thin-client eats maybe 5-20MB at boot.
but if you start to add applications running locally, it will entirely vary based on the size of the application.
can you recommend any thinstations with usb and cdrom or dvdrom?
i generally just use recycled equipment
so i don't have a lot of recommendations for buying stuff.
what kind of setups have you done with ltsp?
i know disklessworkstations.com actually supports ltsp development pretty directly.
my main installation was done at freegeek ... about 20-50 machines at a time. though that was all using lessdisks, which is very similar. i've started merging my efforts into ltsp.
we also did small 3-terminal installs at coffee shops and stuff.
i did a small computer lab at a school

i know in norway, there are schools with hundreds of computers running ltsp
and there's telecentres in brazil with many seats as well.

Quintin: well, i hope ltsp works well for you, despite your doubts. or that you find something that works better for you.

Hm... I figured out why my ltsp server wasnt working but now i'm trying to do somthing else, but dont know how
I'm trying to use LTSP as a Point of Sale server.
im looking for some gpl POS software
ditto, i'm going to try and code one myself
k that is what I been thinking after grokking about
but first, naptime
what i want to be able to do is when a client connects to the server and logs in, i want to be able to connect to their X screen
i know theres a way to do it on the server

Can anyone solve my LTSP problem?
my crystal ball was broken last night
I am trying to configure LTSP Server on a Knoppix Live CD. I started the knoppix-terminalserver
And when it comes to Checking DHCP Connection it fails It says
Sending DHCP broadcast from device eth0 Operation failed
I start the client using Etherboot Floppy It Says Searching for Server(DHCP).... NO IP Address
Well The DHCP itself fails
What can be the reason?
does etherboot find the network card?
yes It finds the network card
as if the LAN wire is not attached to the Other PC it gives error saying cable wire problem
any log messages on the knoppix machine?
or other files in /var/log/
is the dhcp server running on the knoppix machine? ps aux | egrep -i dhcp
well on the server it says "Sending DHCP broadcast from device eth0 Operation failed"
actually i tried this at my office and I am using this bot from Residence and so can't say the output of the command
The entire problem is listed at http://pastebin.ca/264710 Can you provide me the various ways to solve the same
knoppix terminal server is weird. i'm not real familiar with it, but i don't think it's even really LTSP
it is ltsp
aa: this is just a guess, but try a new network card on the server? or a new switch/hub?
i think it may be *like* ltsp, but i'm pretty sure it is not ltsp.
I am not connecting this to any hub/switch I am connecting it directly from the PC to PC
and in the knoppix you can try ltspconfig and ltspadmin
with a crossover cable?
oh, perhaps i was mistaken, then.
yes I think so as I had used the same cable for Windows to Windows networking
it used to be it's own weird thing.
so, i have demonstrated that i really know nothing about knoppix terminal server. :)

hello. Does anyone know if kernel 2.6.17 already come with Boot splash implemented or do I need to re-compile Kernel to do it? Thanks
you'll need to recompile or use a user-space bootsplash alternative.
|18:57||surferdude has quit IRC|
user-space? The best I could do was a boot splash during bizintroimage charge, but it disapears when kernel starts.
|18:58||surferdude has joined #ltsp|
the user-space tools i know about are called usplash and splashy. pretty debian/ubuntu-specific.

Anyone here familiar with upstart?
only in the sense that it sounds cool.
PMantis:Just a howdy!
what are you working on?
My LTSP server is now a fresh install of Edgy, except using LDAP auth.
However, upstart brings up udev before slapd - causes udev to hang for a *long* time, and other headaches before I can *finaly* get a console and start them in the right order.
oh yeah..there have been some bug reports..
one way is to do a soft
So far, I've received no response in #ubuntu, and many comments in #ltsp - even if it's just to say 'Hi'.
ubuntu's so easy to use, it must be user error.
i just went thru this in edgy..with ldap
hell cant remember
bind_policy soft in /etc/libnss-ldap.conf
udev may also faial
vagrantc, Thanks for the vote of confidence. :)
libnnss-ldap is def a major stumbler
I never made that change to the school server
Both were scratch edgy installs
Wonder what the difference is.
i know just what you mean..it never bothered my laptop
anyway...i can look in my server upstairs if you need a cross chevk on anything
#edubuntu is SO much more useful
oh yeah the other hack was to addd a user nvram
oh yeah the other hack was to addd a group nvram
thanks, I'll look
Well, I'll change to soft for now - school server is not plugged in so I can get at it.
Can't test right now though - wife using a thin client.
