is there a way i can limit which users log into which terminals? since i have some pc's out of the classroom, and i need them to have their own users, whereas the other pc's in the lab can log in anywhere

hey!
07:03
cliebow :I'm having a sleepless night with my 8363 :-(
07:03
I got it update my firmware
07:04
but it seems it doesn't realy understand PXE booting but I was able to boot a static linked kernel via NFS ..
07:06
but I tried compiling my own regular kernel static linked and try to let the client boot through a vmlinux that NFS exported
07:06
that didn't work
07:08
I noticed that it has a choice for tftp in its bios but it doesn't really use it ..is there a way to hack this bios or something!
07:45
<cliebow>
rafiks:it wont pxe boot
07:45
did you read the wiki?
07:46

08:11
J45p3r:Hey! ill go after your dansguardian.conf by and by..
08:15
<rafiks>
cliebow : I was looking at inside of TC ,there is an NS boot rom ,is it possible to replace this?
08:16
with a pxe booting rom..

daniQ?
10:50
<daniQ>
hey
10:50
i found lots of stuff on the wiki site that i hadn't run into before...the default screen depth kept going back to 16 instead of 24
10:52
<cliebow>
we should install nx and set your router so i can get in
10:52
<daniQ>
good idea.....i feel like a champion....!
10:52
did the paypal stuff clear?
10:53
<cliebow>
i dont see anythig more..
10:54
<daniQ>
huh....
10:55
<cliebow>
i dont see any payment
10:55
<daniQ>
so there is no deposit in your account
10:55
<cliebow>
right
10:56
<daniQ>
is that normal to get that type of e-mail and have it take this long for the $ to show?
10:57
<cliebow>
no
10:57
<daniQ>
what should i do..
10:58
<cliebow>
email her/him
10:58
<daniQ>
ok....so weird
10:59
<cliebow>
want to set your router so i can ssh in?
11:02
<daniQ>
i sent her an e-mail asking if she can check on her payment and if she could contact paypal to see what's up.
11:03
i got a falure notice from an e-mail to you from a day ago
11:04
didn't we try the router thing before and i didn't take for some reason
11:04
i think i have gremlins in my computer
11:05
<cliebow>
c-->@ltsp.org was down yesterday
11:05
<daniQ>
ohhh
11:05
<cliebow>
i think perhaps
11:05
<daniQ>
so you created your own server and thus have your own e-mail address off that?
11:05
is that the same as your firewall?
11:07
<cliebow>
no..jim offered me the address @ltsp.org and it forwards to midmaine..or anywhere ..i didnt jnow how long i'd have midmaine
11:08
<daniQ>
ahhh i get it...thats a great idea
11:08
<cliebow>
i am one of the proud..the few..with an ltsp.org address

what do you use?
11:11
<rafiks>
cliebow : do you have a working kernel config for the 8363?
11:12
<cliebow>
any durn thing i can find
11:12
ido..but it is for 2.4.19
11:12
<rafiks>
cliebow : i tried everything in the kernel static ,this is 2.6.16
11:12
<cliebow>
rafiks:you know..you can out a flash card in andf boot from that
11:13
NO one has gotten a 2.6 kernel to boot on netvista that i know of
11:13
<rafiks>
cliebow : i know..but i want to try out the network first..
11:13
cliebow :can I have that config please..
11:14
cliebow : i think the gotcha is the devfs thingy right?
11:14
sorry 2.6.19
11:14
<cliebow>
rafiks: ohh you want a .config to build a kernel..i dont know whether i can put my hands on that
11:15
<rafiks>
cliebow : i couldn't get that kernel in the wiki..
11:15
<cliebow>
but i soent a lot of time outting otgether ancd comparing the 2.4 and 2.6 ltsp configs..
11:15
you want 2.4.19?
11:16
it has to be <ltsp4.1
11:16
<rafiks>
yeah ,,i tried compiling a 2.4 kernel ..it bums out..i dunno whats wrong..a missing include something
11:16
<cliebow>
no..it must be an uncompressed kernel
11:16
has to be
11:16
<rafiks>
cliebow :ltsp4.1 ..ok ..
11:16
yeah..i used the vmlinux
11:17
i mean the compilition doesnt for 2.4
11:17
i compiled 2.6.19 ok..
11:17
<cliebow>
i am confused what you need..i have never compiled one to work'
11:17
only used someone elses
11:18
<rafiks>
i can't get a vmlinux from a package? or can i?
11:18
i dont see it in debian..
11:18
all i see are vmlinuz
11:19
and i don't I decompressed that ...can i?
11:19
and i don't think I can decompressed that ...can i?

hey people I have a problem with LTSP 4.2 in this moment a station with a network card Realtek 8139 says: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0 transmit time out Kernel Panic - Attempt syncing
15:20
ideas?
15:23
<vagrantc>
usually a bad network card
15:25
<edgarin>
vagrantc, ummm... In past time I have this problem, but I don't remember howto I solved this problem :S
15:26* vagrantc has only been sucessful replacing the NIC
15:27
<edgarin>
Ok
15:27
<vagrantc>
maybe sometimes the network cable or hub/switch ...
15:28
<mistik1>
hey fellas
15:28* vagrantc needs to do some testing of the latest debian packages

hi
15:29
what is the fix alreay for firefox flash sound problem ?
15:29* vagrantc needs to go for a walk while it is still light out
15:29
<yhan>
I think there is a way to start ff so every sound will be forced to be player with esd
15:30
<vagrantc>
esddsp firefox
15:33
<yhan>
umm I got a bus error
15:39
<edgarin>
ummm, I found a possible solution for my problem
15:39
but I don't know howto make this
15:39
put in the boot of the station acpi off?
15:40
<yhan>
edgarin, a kernel parameter
15:40
I don't know which exactly
15:40
something like acpi=off
15:47
<edgarin>
yhan, yes is a parameter of the kernel, but howto I can modify this parameters?
15:48gigabytes has quit IRC
15:50
<yhan>
do you mean the terminal ?
15:50
if yes you need to modify /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/pxelinux.cfg/default
15:50
there you can set the kernel parameters for the terminals
15:51
however if you need to do that for only one terminal, you will need to add an entry for this term in yr dhcp server and in tftp reposity
15:52
<edgarin>
ok

<cliebow>
not sure
