<CaPriCoRN^80>
any one ltsp i want out put of this command fdisk -l /dev/sda
11:17
any one using thin client with usb i want out put of this command fdisk -l /dev/sda
11:18
<jammcq>
can't do that with ltsp
11:18
we support filesystems, not block devices
11:19
<CaPriCoRN^80>
just want to know that if usb is mouted on thin client .. wat should be its system
11:19
<jammcq>
depends on how it was formatted
11:19
<CaPriCoRN^80>
i have formatted it on window xp with fat 32
11:19
<jammcq>
ok, then it's fat-32
11:20
<CaPriCoRN^80>
fdisk -l /dev/sda on thin client box showing me its system ad linux swap/Solaris
11:21
<jammcq>
type this: echo $DISPLAY
11:21
see what it says
11:22
<CaPriCoRN^80>
ws148.LTSP:1.0
11:22
<jammcq>
you aren't on the thin client, you are logged into the server
11:22
your session is running on the server. /dev/sda is the SERVER disk
11:23
<CaPriCoRN^80>
yea that was my server output
11:23
i m not in my office where my server is . i m at home .. i trouble shoot that n output was on doc so i told u

18:20
<vagrantc>
now all i need is a hub that works.

<vagrantc>
i need to have a talk or two with him...
18:42
Mathesis: ?
18:43
<Mathesis>

Anyone familiar on how to pull a development branch from Ubuntu's Launchpad?
21:27
<neuralis>
a development branch of what?
21:27
products that have bzr branches registered will have a 'code' link in their LP page, which you can follow to obtain branch addresses.
21:28
<bricode>
Specifically this: https://launchpad.net/people/ogra/+branch/ltsp/feisty-fat-clients
21:28
<neuralis>
it gives you the URL on that page, next to the bold 'hosted on launchpad' text.
21:28
apt-get install bzr; bzr checkout <that-link>
21:28
<dberkholz>
hi there neuralis
21:29
<neuralis>
dberkholz: 'evening
21:29
<dberkholz>
neuralis: have a look at http://dev.gentoo.org/~dberkholz/osel/osel_newsletter_web.pdf
21:29
<bricode>
Sweet. And it dumps the checked out code to the current directory?
21:30
<neuralis>
bricode: it'll create a folder with the branch name first
21:30
<bricode>
neuralis: Check. Thanks.
21:30
<neuralis>
dberkholz: before i read it, why such low photo quality?
21:31
<dberkholz>
neuralis: it's the web version.
21:31
see the other file in the same directory
21:31
163K vs 5M
21:31
<neuralis>
hm. on what kind of difference in dpi?
21:32
<dberkholz>
web is 100dpi
21:32
original is native dpi, no downsampling
21:32
<bricode>
dberkholz: Oregon State's in Corvallis right?
21:32
<dberkholz>
bricode: yep
21:33
<neuralis>
dberkholz: i suspect most people would rather have a 400K pdf at 200dpi or so than a 163k at 100, fwiw
21:34
<dberkholz>
if you can use evince or something to view instead of acroread/xpdf/kpdf, pelase do
21:34
<neuralis>
yeah, i use evince.
21:35
nice article, thanks for writing it!
21:35
<dberkholz>
everything else looks like crap in comparison
21:35
<bricode>
Yeah, the articles were interesting.
21:35
Nice to know you can make a living as an open source developer
21:35
<dberkholz>
the articles will be higher quality in later issues
21:36
i spent most of my time this month on design
21:36
<bricode>
You've got to start somewhere. Just getting the information out is important.
21:36
<neuralis>
dberkholz: could you post the cleaned-up photo in the same dir? i'll stick it on the wiki somewhere

neuralis: http://dev.gentoo.org/~dberkholz/osel/olpc_silhouette.jpg
21:37
neuralis: note that it's not perfect, but it's reasonable
21:38
<bricode>
dberkholz: Does the screen actually work on that prototype?
21:38
<neuralis>
bricode: that's not a prototype, that's a b1 engineering sample, fully operational
21:38
<dberkholz>
the bottom corner got cut off a little, and if you zoom way in, you'll see that all the gray areas touching the white are a little funny
21:39
<bricode>
neuralis: Nice. When I was down to MIT in August, they were using the A0 dev boards. Good to see progress.
21:39
<neuralis>
bricode: http://dev.laptop.org/~krstic/xo for photos showing an active screen (but they don't do it justice)
21:40
(click brings larger thumbnail, click on that brings full-size pic)
21:41
<bricode>
neuralis: Thanks.
21:41
<neuralis>
the moire-like pattern is a picture artifact, not visible on the screens themselves.
21:41
<bricode>
neuralis: What's the from? It's certainly not a coding artifact.
21:43
<neuralis>
not sure, tbh. now that i think about it, it's likely that that machine still had the plastic cover embedded in the screen.
21:43
(http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/495)
21:44
<dberkholz>
could be a difference of your camera dpi with the screen resolution?
21:45
<bricode>
neuralis: Silly film. The screens look great. There was a whole lot of thinking that went into them and how they drive them. Good to see they work.
21:45
<dberkholz>
oh they look great. i saw one playing videos on friday and it was fantastic
21:45
<neuralis>
the real shocker is when you take it outside in full sunlight, imo.
21:45
<dberkholz>
think it was 600mbit with no delay or anything
21:46
<bricode>
dberkholz: Don't suppose you know what resolution/format the video was?
21:46
<dberkholz>
let's see. there was definitely an h264.. don't recall the others
21:46
<bricode>
dberkholz: I'm working on a platform that uses the GeodeLX chip...working on video funk.
21:47
dberkholz: h264? That's a pretty heavy codec for that box.
21:48
<dberkholz>
looked quite solid
21:49
<bricode>
dberkholz: Wild. I need to track one down and play with it at some point.

neuralis: bumping to 200dpi increases the size by more than 3x
23:24
<neuralis>
depends who you're targetting. i doubt too many of your readers are on dialup, in which case 500k is completely fine. but yeah, i was just giving you an opinion, not telling you what to do by any means.
23:25
<dberkholz>
neuralis: i'll definitely think about it, and ask other folks for comments
23:26
i expect a lot of people reading the pdf will view it around 150-200%, where the difference is definitely noticeable
