I'm having a bit of trouble getting a test LTSP server to show a desktop properly and was wondering if anyone could help. I've been googling and reading the wiki/list with no luck.

bdole42: what are you seeing??gray screen?
Sort of, it's not the blank gray screen with the X cursor. I can login. Once I login, the gnome initialisation screen appears with "Windows Manager". That eventually goes away, and I am then left with a grey desktop.
what distro is this..not sure i cvan help but if you carefully explain one of the other guys may jump in..
It's Ubuntu 6.10 server.
sounds like you haven't installed the gnome-desktop
'server' doesn't come with it
and the native ltsp ser ver..or ours
bdole42:see..i wasnt making this up 8~)
i tghionk i see..that must be local dm..but no desktop on server?
Hmm, I know gdm and kdm are installed (and kdm is picked,) but I did not install [k]ubuntu-desktop
I ran across a list message where an install of kubuntu-desktop on LTSP caused a lot of problems so I did not install it.
|11:32||* jammcq can't imagine why there'd be any problems|
ltsp doesn't care what the desktop is
<smacks forehead> I don't suppose that a lack of kdesktop wouldn't have anything to do with it?
well, sure it could be the problem
what kind of desktop would you expect to see, if you haven't installed one ?
you are probably getting the TWM desktop
Heh, well now I do get an Ubuntu-themed post-login screen saying "Window Manager", but it's still at the same spot
I'm still getting used to the various components of X and how they work together
jammcq - I'll give kubuntu-desktop a shot and see what happens. I can always roll back to a snapshot
Where can I check to see if TWM is indeed being used?
When screen_02=shell runs it appears in the upper left corner of the "desktop" with no window, but it does track the mouse correctly.

|12:07||vagrantc has joined #ltsp|
|12:10||* vagrantc is totally puzzled by a bug report against ldm|
I think you were right jammcq, my .xsession-errors file has "WARNING: No window manager can be found." in it. kubuntu-desktop is just about done so I'll see if that fixes it. Or at least gets me further.
|12:12||* vagrantc now understands|
ogra: so, i see why my code didn't work for you
ogra: the get_bool code in ldm ... i used "==" where i should have used "="
aanyone else com across grub error 16 when attempting daual boot?
fdisk /dev/hda says for all partitions partiton does not end on a cylinder boundary
could it be the 'LBA' vs 'Large Disk' setting in the bios?
hmmm..let me look]\

jammcq - thanks for the help. I got the LTSP server going on my VMWare test system, and have now migrated it over to my real server, and it's working great. Now to tackle sound and getting Capio's working with it!

I'm running opensuse 10.2... when I try to build LBE I get "gcc MUST be between 3.2 and 3.4 !!"
is there an updated .rpm of this project?
why do you want to build LBE ?
because I couldn't find an rpm, so I was going to build from scratch
ok, that's not a good way to do it. Just use the .tgz package of the ltsp-utils
and that installs everything I need?
that installs ltspadmin. run ltspadmin, and it will install the rest for you
ok great, thanks

this is kinda off topic, but is there any way to push a win32 desktop out without using windows terminal server? the closest thing I found was here: http://silent.gumph.org/content/4/7/071-diskless-windows-pxe.html
|22:00||* jammcq knows nothing about windows terminal server|
are there any good docs on how to configure wine and windows apps to work on the thin clients?
the docs i'm looking at on google are pretty old
where is the kernel file located?
that I'm supposed to configure dhcpd.conf to use?
the one in the example is showing a dir named lts, which doesn't exist
go look in /tftpboot/lts
ahh thanks again
ok I point it there, now PXE says "PXE-E79: NBP is too big to fit in free base memory"
ok, you are using PXE, so you need to load the pxelinux.0 file
NOT the kernel
pxelinux.0 will then take care of loading the kernel
and... I'm heading to bed, so good luck
thanks for all your help
so what should /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default look like?
can someone cat theirs?
smatt: perhaps this page is useful: http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/PXE
yes thank you
there's a lot of good information on the wiki.
|23:33||alien_ has joined #ltsp|
so you have to put the path in quotes?
do I meant
in dhcpd.conf, yes. if that's what you mean
no in the default file. i've got: kernel /tftpboot/lts/220.127.116.11-ltsp-1/bzImage-18.104.22.168-ltsp-1
and it can't find it
probably leave out the "/tftpboot" part.
most tftp servers run in such a way that the specified path is relative to the root of the tftp dir ...
i.e., use: kernel /lts/22.214.171.124-ltsp-1/bzImage-126.96.36.199-ltsp-1
there it goes! thanks a million
not a problem :)
seems like a good stopping point for the night. :)
thanks again, goodnight!
