<kgoetz>
can you do minimal ltsp installs with ubuntu-dapper, or can you only do 'graphical client' systems?
00:23
i want to network boot a gateway computer, and i'd rather it didnt X :)
00:24
that said, using a thin client for a gateway could get ugly, and dapper doesnt do fat clients
00:24
<vagrantc>
kgoetz: if you don't mind the X stuff being installed, it's fairly easy to do.
00:25
<kgoetz>
vagrantc: i asume i can remove it after install, so as long as thats fine i probably dont mind
00:25
<vagrantc>
kgoetz: well, the ltsp-cleint package depends on ... ldm | sdm | x-display manager
00:26
<kgoetz>
hm... :(
00:26* vagrantc has campaigned from the very beginning to not require this
00:26* kgoetz grumbles a little
00:27
<vagrantc>
i plan to work on splitting up the packages a little more so what you want is easier to do, while making the default behavior the way it is.
00:28
<kgoetz>
i'm still not sure it would work properly, but i'm going to give it a shot and see what happens. i have a seperate chroot for teh gateway
00:28
so i can mess around with it instead of all my clients together
00:36
<Mathesis>
error: LTSP client installation ended abnormally
00:36
<vagrantc>
Mathesis: that's always the error when anything breaks.
00:38
<Mathesis>
how I can solve that problem or I omit it ?
00:39
<vagrantc>
most likely, you can't skip it.
00:40
it might be that since it's debian's testing release, all the needed packages aren't available right now...
00:41
sometimes that happens ...
00:41* vagrantc does an ltsp-build-client run
00:43
<vagrantc>
mañana, tal vez.
00:43
<Mathesis>
:(
00:45
vagrantc: cewm can be translated the Spanish?
00:45
*vagrantc: icewm can be translated the Spanish?
00:45
<vagrantc>
Mathesis: no se.
00:46
Mathesis: no tengo problemas con http://debian.oregonstate.edu/debian
00:46
Mathesis: rm -rf /opt/ltsp/i386, y trata otra vez?
00:47
<Mathesis>
thats ok
00:49

dont forget the semicolon and restart the dhcpd

<Shurilla>
Here is a current configuration for example:
05:58
option routers 10.1.1.1;
05:58
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
05:58
option broadcast-address 10.1.1.255 ;
05:58
option domain-name-servers 10.1.1.1;
05:58
option domain-name "lochal.host";
05:59
option root-path "10.1.1.1:/opt/ltsp/i386/";
06:00
<cliebow>
on 10.1.1.1 there is /opt/ltsp/i386 and showmount -e says it is exported
06:00wizzy has joined #ltsp
06:02
<cliebow>
while we are it it netstat -anp|grep ":2049" shows nfs is running?
06:03
you dont have another machine giving out dhcp do you?
06:04
<Shurilla>
showmount -e it says:
06:04
"export list for localhost.localdomain:
06:04
/opt/ltsp/i386 10.1.1.0/255.255.255.0
06:04
/var/opt/ltsp/swapfiles 10.1.1.0/255.255.255.0 "
06:04
<cliebow>
another dhcp server?
06:05
<Shurilla>
in another subnetwork win 2003
06:06
netstat -anp|grep it says:
06:06
udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:67 0.0.0.0:* 2168/dhcpd
06:06Skarmeth has joined #ltsp

<Shurilla>
raw 0 0 0.0.0.0:1 0.0.0.0:* 7 2168/dhcpd
06:06
<cliebow>
can you watch your logs to see if the client is actually passing an address out twice
06:07
once to get the kernel down..again to find out its root-path
06:07
ethereala/wireshark is handy there too..
06:16
<Shurilla>
this part of log:
06:16

08:48FernandoMM has joined #ltsp
08:49
<pscheie>
what's the command to launch X on the client if SCREEN_01 = shell? Used to be something like sh_startx.
08:50
<Gadi>
are you on LTSP 4.2?\
08:50
<pscheie>
yes
08:50
<Gadi>
or muekow?
08:50
ah
08:50
startx
08:50
or /etc/screen.d/startx
08:52
<pscheie>
just plain startx? I must be confusing myself with the older versions where setting SCREEN_01 = shell required some command to start X
08:52
How is it done under muekow?
08:53
<Gadi>
well, in *ubuntu*'s implementation of muekow....
08:53
they put the screen scripts in /usr/lib/ltsp/screen.d (or some such)

09:11
(yes, i'm a noob ...)
09:14
<Gadi>
it should be: root-path
09:14
not: root_path
09:15
<chenapan>
pfff ok :)
09:16
mmmh, same error :(
09:18
<Gadi>
check that the preceding line ends in a semicolon
09:21
<chenapan>
yeah, ok, this problem is fixed :) a ';' was missing
09:22
now, i've another problem ...
09:23

09:26
Can anyone help me
09:26Sp0oKeR has joined #ltsp
09:27
<ao_>
aa: are you sure your tftp server is up and running=
09:27
?
09:28
<aa>
yes my tftp server is up and running as i had seen the same in ltspadmin
09:28
Loading 192.168.1.1:/tftpboot/lts/vmlinuz.ltsp TFTP error 1 (File not found)
09:30
<ao_>
in dhcpd.conf:
09:30
filename "/lts/2.4.26-ltsp-3/pxelinux.0"; # PXE
09:30
this corresponds to
09:30
/tftpboot/lts/2.4.26-ltsp-3/pxelinux.0
09:31
on the tftp server
09:32
<aa>
u mean i had to remove /tftboot from the filename?
09:32bobby_C has joined #ltsp
09:33
<aa>
actually the network is at my office where i have to try i don't have 2 machines over here and so can't tyry and give u results but can u give me some other options to find where i may have gone wrong
09:35
<ao_>
paste your dhcpd.conf line (the one with ^filename....)
09:38
<aa>
filename "/tftpboot/lts/vmlinuz-2.4.26-ltsp-3"
09:39
<cliebow_>
aa: what distro
09:40
<ao_>
filename "/lts/vmlinuz-2.4.26-ltsp-3";
09:40
remove the /tftpboot.
09:40
<aa>
knoppix
09:41
<ao_>
/tftpboot is there the tftp server is chroot()ed, so
09:41
<cliebow_>
aa: what is the -s argument in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp assuming you dont have /etc/inetd.conf
09:41
and what tftp server?
09:43
<aa>
I will do that . I mean that is one option which i will do
09:43
is there any way by which i can test on the server itself to check what should be the exact path
09:43
i mean is there any client or something to check the same
09:44Shurilla has quit IRC
09:44
<aa>
cliebow_: Actually I am also new to all this and so i don't know much about it
09:48
<cliebow_>
aa:what distro/
09:51
for the hell of it add next-server fillinyourserverhere;
09:58chenapan has quit IRC
10:03
<aa>
cliebow_: it is Knoppix
10:04
<ao_>
if you want to test your tftp server there is "ftp"
10:04
tftp
10:05
your dhcp line is wrong anyways
10:05
remove the leading /tftp from the line
10:07
<cliebow_>
aa: seems like dpkg -l|grep dhcp will tell you what server that is
10:08
<ao_>
tftp doin chroot() has btw nothing to do with the disto
10:13
<wizzy>
Has anyone tried using ATAoE to use idle disks on thin clients ?
10:13
<cliebow_>
aa:either inetd.conf or xinetd.d/tftp controls action of tftp..look for the -s flag

I mean i test tftp server with ftp client?

tftp and ftp are two totally different protocols
10:22jcgeuze has joined #ltsp

Actaully I am going through http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/UserInfo/Resources/Hardware/IBMp690/IBM/usr/share/man/info/en_US/a_doc_lib/cmds/aixcmds5/tftp.htm but there seems to be no commands
10:26

does someone knows where I can find a ltsp kernel with IPX?
11:13
(or even a how-to of how to compile a LTSP kernel)

ok
11:30
but one more thing
11:31
in ltsp4.2 we have eash hosts with an ip in hosts.conf
11:31
and that host we use with lts.conf to have set printer device
11:31
should i create an entry in hosts.conf to bind priner device

Hi everybody!!
11:46
I have a question about NX server...
11:47vykarian has joined #ltsp
11:47
<vykarian>
guys, where can I find documentation about kernel compiling for ltsp workstations?
11:48
<nicoAMG>
I'm using the free NX server to access the ltsp server, but it supports only two connections
11:49
How to support more users?
11:50
<Gadi>
nicoAMG: the NX server fromnomachine (the free one) is capped at 2 users
11:51
if you're using that one, you should buy more licenses
11:51
<nicoAMG>
Ohh!
11:51
<Gadi>
otherwise, use FreeNX
11:51
<nicoAMG>
Where is freenx?
11:52
<Gadi>
what distro are you using?
11:52
<nicoAMG>
NX form nomachine, ""free forever" :P
11:52
I'm using Ubuntu 6.10...
11:53
<Gadi>
I think the kanotix guys have freenx in a repo. do a search for edgy freenx
11:53
<vykarian>
does anyone know where I can find a ltsp kernel repository or instructions to build a new one or hack one already launched?
11:53
<Gadi>
its not in any of the ubuntu repos afaik
11:53
<jammcq>
vykarian: what version of LTSP ?
11:53
<vykarian>
4.2
11:54
<jammcq>
you need the ltsp_kernel_kit
11:54
<dberkholz>
jammcq: you up in portland?

i'd miss half of today

Empiric: barely
12:02
<Empiric>
ya
12:02
did u get my question
12:02
<vagrantc>
Empiric: just ask your question, and if anyone's around who knows he answer, they'll respond
12:02
<Empiric>
for printers in ltsp4.2 we have entries in hosts file
12:03a1 has quit IRC
12:03
<Empiric>
and each hosts has spicific ip in that file which we use ti bind printer in lts.conf file
12:03
but i dont have hosts entries in ubuntu eggy
12:04
how i bind printer settings for particular thinclient in lts.conf
12:04
<Gadi>
Empiric: edgy still uses the same lts.conf/hosts/dhcpd.conf methods as LTSP4.2
12:05
<Empiric>
but when i do apt-get install ltspserver
12:05
<Gadi>
just do what you would do in 4.2
12:05
<Empiric>
and ltsp-built-cleint
12:05
then i wont doa ny thing ltsp is done in ubuntu
12:05
no need to add entries in hosts file
12:05
<Gadi>
that just gives you a default generic setup
12:05
<Empiric>
for printers i have to create entries
12:05
in hosts file
12:05
ya
12:05
true
12:06
ok i got it will create hosts entries right
12:06
<Gadi>
if you need a specified client, you have to edit the files
12:06
as before
12:06
<Empiric>
ok
12:06
thanks i got it

jammcq, i found that page about building kernel for LTSP http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/Build-LTSP-42#Grab_the_lbe_from_cvs
12:13
<jammcq>
vykarian: there's an easier way
12:13
<vykarian>
did u follow that? after LBE is just like building a regular linux kernel??
12:13egypcio has joined #ltsp
12:14
<vykarian>
would be what?
12:14
<jammcq>
when you build the LBE, you'll end up with the 'ltsp_kernel_kit'. But, i've released the kernel kit as a separate tarball that you can grab
12:14
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LTSP-42
12:14
go to that page, and search for 'kernel_kit'
12:14
there's a link for a tarball
12:14
<vykarian>
http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/utils/ltsp_kernel_kit_4.2u3.tgz
12:14
=]
12:14
<jammcq>
yeah
12:15
grab that
12:15
it's got the config files that I used for various LTSP kernels
12:16ogra has quit IRC
12:20
<vykarian>
jammcq great, would be just copy that to a .config to /usr/src/kernel-$VER/ and run the regular linux compiling?
12:21
<jammcq>
vykarian: yeah, run 'make oldconfig' before modifying it
12:21
then, after building the kernel and modules, there's a 'build' script in the tarball that will put it all together for LTSP
12:22
<Gadi>
jammcq: do you know of a good reference for the best autodetect OSS video drivers in Xorg?
12:22
<vykarian>
12:22
<jammcq>
OSS video ?
12:22
vykarian: yep, that's the one
12:22
vykarian: isn't there a README file in there too ?
12:23
<vykarian>
root@ltsp:/downloads/kernels/ltsp_kernel_kit# find . | grep README
12:23
root@ltsp:/downloads/kernels/ltsp_kernel_kit#
12:23
<Gadi>
Oss meaning open source
12:23
<vykarian>
nope :(
12:23
<Gadi>
not getting into the binary nvidia/ati driver crap
12:23
<jammcq>
Gadi: oh, I was thinking OSS vs Alsa
12:24
<Gadi>
just Xorg out of the box detects and does a good job
12:24
and no options needed or special framebuffers, etc
12:25
I find more and more, things are autodetected as "special framebuffer + vesa video driver"
12:26
and if you do: "special framebuffer + appropriate driver" you get worse performance
12:27
<jammcq>
that's because vesa is the 'safe" choice when you don't really know what to do
12:27Kodex has quit IRC
12:27
<jammcq>
auto-detection of the correct driver was a big topic at the Ubuntu meeting last month
12:27
<Gadi>
right, but the good choice shouldnt perform worse
12:27
<jammcq>
well, most importantly, the "good" choice should "work"
12:27
<Gadi>
there seem to be more of a proliferation of framebufers, too
12:27
<jammcq>
performance is a secondary thing
12:28
<Gadi>
heh, you dont have my users
12:28
;)
12:28
but, in general
12:28
if you were to buy a videocard for your machine
12:28
and you wanted it to work well out of the box
12:28
what would you buy?
12:29
<jammcq>
a cheap ATI
12:29
Intel has great support, but you can't buy an Intel video card (yet)
12:29
intel is only on the mobo
12:29
<Gadi>
and you wouldnt need the proprietary ati driver to make it work well?
12:29
<jammcq>
the high performance ati and nvidia cards are not easy to setup
12:30
you can still get the ATI Rage cards, and they work reasonable well. I'm using one in my thin client at home, with 1920x1200 screen
12:30
my big problem now is that I want a 30" 2560x1600 screen, but they all require dual-DVI and I just know how to do that in a thin client
12:31
<Gadi>
we were discussing yesterday a bit about autodetection and ubuntu's "just fix the driver to do the right thing" philosophy
12:31
which I totally agree with
12:31
just wondering which drivers are actually "fixed"?
12:31
<jammcq>
dunno
12:31
<Gadi>
because AFAIK most dont 'do the right thing' to get high quality video out-of-the-box
12:32
<jammcq>
well, there's still short-comings in the free nv and ati drivers
12:32
and fixing that is really not easy, without help from the vendor, who doesn't want to give help
12:36
<Gadi>
actually, Im thinking the VIA drivers are prolly some of the best OSS drivers
12:37
<jammcq>
heh, even the via's are a problem, there's Unichrome, openchrome and whatever is in Xorg
12:37
<Gadi>
right
12:37
explains the dirth of Linux games on the market
12:38
<dberkholz>
xorg is basically unichrome pre-fork plus a few small tweaks that both sides can agree on

SOUND=Y in lts.conf
13:39
or, maybe SOUND=true
13:40
it drove ogra crazy to use Y/N for boolean, so there's a much easier to understand matrix of which use true/false and y/n :P

actually, looks like setting SOUND=false will even enable sound :(
14:00
seting SOUND= to anything other than "" will enable sound.
14:00* vagrantc HATES that kind of code
14:11

so... when the dhcp server sees a DHCPDISCOVER, makes a DHCPOFFER, does a DHCPACK , but the client never gets it... usually it's a bad NIC or switch?
