06:21
<cliebow>
not too sure how your network is set up but something is choking..the thins get only x traffic from the server so it shouldnt be a ltsp porb
06:21
blub:working?
06:22
Empiric:the nrain trust should be around by and bye..I am just sort of the dorrman..

hi all, what is (realistically) the maximum size required for /usr partition ? I'm making an LTSP server on a machine with 320gb of space - I want to dedicate the maximum amount of space to the users' home directories, but will probably also be doing some development work on it
09:23
i'm going to be on kubuntu, btw

hello all, does the monitor resolution depend entirely on monitor or also on video card?
14:57
<pscheie>
also on the video card
14:58
<jwalanta>
pscheie: i was using ltsp to run old pentium i computers, but the resolution didn't go beyond 640x480
14:58
<pscheie>
how much ram is on the video cards?
14:58
<jwalanta>
pscheie: vesa ran on 800x600 but the screen updates were too slow..
14:59
pscheie: 1MB
14:59
pscheie: card is cirrus logic
14:59cascade_ has quit IRC
14:59
<pscheie>
the driver also affects the resolution, near as I can tell
15:00
with 1MB you *should* be able to get 800x600 at 16bpp
15:00
I've noticed that as time goes by, more older cards get the vesa driver
15:01
<jwalanta>
pscheie: but it didnt
15:01
<pscheie>
which sometimes doesn't work as well as a specific xfree_86 driver
15:01
<jwalanta>
pscheie: vesa runs at 800x600 though
15:02
<pscheie>
I just installed FC6 on a box that I also dual boot as a thin client
15:02
FC6 is using the vesa driver and gives me 1600x1200
15:02
but as a 4.2 client, the best I've gotten so far is 1024x768
15:03
<jwalanta>
can u guess what might be the problem??
15:03
any checks to do??
15:03
<pscheie>
have you specified a higher res in lts.conf?
15:03
<jwalanta>
yup
15:03
<pscheie>
and it just ignores it, right?
15:04
<jwalanta>
yup
15:04
when i do XSERVER = auto, it doesn't work
15:04
but when i do XSERVER = cirrus, it works (the video card is cirrus logic)
15:05
but only in 640x480 mode
15:05
<pscheie>
I've got an iPaq that I have to use these settings for:
15:06
XSERVER = vesa
15:06
X_VIDEORAM = 4096
15:06
USE_NBD_SWAP = Y
15:06
SWAPFILE_SIZE = 48m
15:06
You might try specifying how much video ram you've got
15:06PMantis has quit IRC
15:07
<pscheie>
I'm no expert on this, obviously
15:07
<jwalanta>
video ram is 1 mb
15:07
it's an old computer..
15:07
<pscheie>
so try X_VIDEORAM = 1024
15:08
<jwalanta>
vesa driver works fine, but not acceptable to me coz screen updates r horrible
15:08
<pscheie>
Yeah, I've got some old video cards still, 2MB I think
15:08
haven't tried them in a while
15:09Administrador has joined #ltsp

<pscheie>
jwalanta: what if you lower the color level?
15:12
<jwalanta>
nope doesn't work
15:13
<pscheie>
X_COLOR_DEPTH = 8
15:13
<jwalanta>
no change
15:13
<pscheie>
so, you still get 16bpp?
15:14
<jwalanta>
no no, still 640x480 in 8bpp too
15:14
<pscheie>
ah, just uglier 640x480
15:15
<jwalanta>
strange thing is, vesa works for higher res, so there's mus be enough vid ram right?
15:16
<pscheie>
so it would seem
15:16
<jwalanta>
is it the problem with cirrus driver??
15:17
<pscheie>
sounds like it
15:17
<jwalanta>
is there any way i can update it??
15:18
<pscheie>
I think if you set SCREEN_01 = shell you can then call startx to start X, but twiddle with the xorg file beforehand
15:18
<jwalanta>
i've tried that too..
15:19egypcio has quit IRC
15:20egypcio has joined #ltsp
15:21
<pscheie>
you can add other settings to the X_MODE_0 line for scan rates, etc.
15:21
<jwalanta>
tried that too..
15:21
<pscheie>
I wonder if you'd get a different result with a different monitor
15:22
<jwalanta>
i also found a xf86config file on net for the same monitor as mine, but that didn't work
15:22
i changed the monitor too.. didnt work
15:22
now it's time to change the cpu altogether .. :)
15:23
<pscheie>
I hate having to do that--it should be possible to make it work
15:23
<jwalanta>
yup i totally hate being defeated by computer
15:23
<pscheie>
have you tried loading an XFree86 driver?
15:24
as I mentioned, I sometimes have better luck with those on older cards
15:24
<jwalanta>
i tried svga one, but that too didn't work
15:24
atleast svga should work no?
15:25
<pscheie>
you'd think so, but I seem to recall that not always being the case
15:26
<jwalanta>
now i've realized that too..
