Anyone know of a way to make a global MOTD display when a user logs in?

starting the day off with a bang:
03:17
<erdinc>
hi dan
03:18
<SiCk>
anyone have any ideas on a simple thin client solution for an HP T5000, all it needs to run is a webpage in kiosk(fullscreen) mode
03:18white has joined #ltsp
03:18
<dan__t>
xmotd looked promising, however, appears quite old and not able to run on any recent machines.
03:19
<white>
hi, does anybody know or maybe checked the FL_Teacher-Tool? I just read a short mail about it
03:26
<dan__t>
I LOVE LTSP.
03:26
Just thought I'd let you all know that.
03:29
<SiCk>
i dont :(
03:29
it doesnt boot to my thin client
03:29
but it does to my pc laptop
03:32
<dan__t>
what kind of errors are you getting when attempting to boot?
03:33
Just running Firefox fullscreen?
03:33
<SiCk>
i'd like that aye
03:33
and no errors
03:33
thats the odd thing, it just doesnt boot
03:33
<dan__t>
Are you turning the power on?
03:34
I'm not trying to be a dick - you're just being terribly vague, and I don't quite know where to start :)
03:34
<SiCk>
haha yeah, it gets most of the way through the boot
03:34
tried turning quiet and splash off
03:35
so it boots to Uncompressing Linux - OK
03:35
then does nothing, though it does respond to keypress
03:35
no prompt tho
03:36
<dan__t>
What kind of processor is on this machine?
03:44
<SiCk>
Via Eden
03:44
400mhz
03:45
<dan__t>
I'd doubt that the booting kernel on that machine supports that architecture.
03:45
That stopping point is pretty much a classic 'processor not supported' error.
03:47
<SiCk>
was hoping that wasnt the case

03:48
<dan__t>
Have you ever compiled your own kernel before?
03:48
<SiCk>
nope
03:48
though... there is a kernel already on the machine
03:49
its pre-installed...
03:49
but you cant really do alot with it

Bah, Someone gave me some hackery yesterday about how I can tell which client is connected on which X server. Of course my buffer ate it. Anyone know how I can do that by chance?

now with vnc support ... http://www.progbox.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/tcm2.png ;)
05:34
(still needs some polish, but will be ready for feisty)
05:34
<cliebow>
looking
05:34
coolo
05:35
<dan__t>
ogra, is that one of your creations??
05:36
<ogra>
dan__t, i created the initial app a year ago ... pete took over and added all the neat stuff :)
05:36
<dan__t>
I am.... extremely impressed.
05:36
<cliebow>
Very cool..i do something like that manually..
05:36
that with vnc.so?
05:37
<dan__t>
I'd be more than happy to help test, if you wish.
05:37
<ogra>
nope, i havent seen the code yet, but i think the tiles are just forwarded xwd schots to save bandwith ... the real conection is done by a wrapper stolen from vnc2swf
05:37
<cliebow>
i set x11vnc to scale at .2 and open a bunch of desktops
05:38
<ogra>
in a later release iÄd like to have popups like tooltips that show you a live image at 640x480 ;)
05:38
(if you hover over a tile)
05:39
we tried x11vnc but the preformance is horrible if you have multiple connections
05:39
<cliebow>
so vnc.so?
05:40
<ogra>
i dont know what vnc2swf uses ... its a python wrapper

06:04
<dan__t>
So which is the preferred method of vnc?
06:05
<cliebow>
dont think there is one..a lot of diff solutions going on
06:05
clearly ogra/Pete have a very cool thing
06:05
<dan__t>
Yeah. The only one I've played with so far is through the use of vnc.so
06:05
Indeed :)
06:05
Who is Pete?
06:05
<cliebow>
i dont know how much strain vnc.so puts on clients
06:06
whether it is running all the time? mmy x11vnc runs only on demand
06:06
and dies when done
06:07
most of my clients are 32 meg roadkill machines

I'm liking this. A lot.

Know what would be completely bad-ass? An X client for Windows Mobile, so I could VNC into the office or do whatever I needed to do in user PCs, via VNC, remotely.
06:09
NWEA?
06:09

dan__t, well, since IRC is my office, "meet" is about right :)

cliebow_, yep, with the bcm43xx driver and the right firmware i get through fwcutter
08:47
<cliebow_>
would the firmware bork the apple side?
08:50
<erdinc>
cliebow use this: http://cekirdek.pardus.org.tr/~ismail/dist/bcm43xx-firmware-3.130.20.0.tar.bz2
08:52
<ogra>
cliebow_, there is a package for that integrated in ubuntu, dont use any externat tgz's
08:52
it will select the right fw for your specific card and download it for you (you need a wired connection for it)
08:53
bcm43xx should be loaded by udev automatically so after a reboot it should all work
08:55
<cliebow_>

I have a x86_64 K12LTSP5.0 that I've tried to split to serve two subnets over two NICs and two switches. My client will get a proper IP, boot the kernel, however will fail after trying to switchroot. There aren't any errors in /var/log/messages on the server. Any ideas as to where to start looking?
09:36robbie has quit IRC
09:36
<Blinny>
Is dhcpd.conf and /opt/ltsp/*/lts.conf the only places I need to specify the next-server and SERVER fields?
09:39
<cliebow_>
in /etc/exports..you have nfs shared to both subnets?
09:40
<Blinny>
cliebow_: Yes. I've copied /opt/ltsp/i386 into /opt/ltsp/i386-1; the first for 192.168.0.0/24 and the second for 192.168.1.0/24. The remainder of the shares are untouched and permissioned to 192.168.0.0/16
09:40* ogra dances
09:40
<ogra>
sbalneav, https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/feisty-changes/2007-January/004154.html
09:41
:-D
09:41
should be available in ~1.5h
09:41
<Blinny>
cliebow: When attempting to boot, a client on 192.168.1.0/24 does this: "Mounting root filesystem: /opt/ltsp/i386-1 from: 192.168.0.254 then I get nfs server errors of 192.168.0.254 not responding after the switch is attempted.
09:42
I can't find where 192.168.1.0/24 clients are being instructed to use the 192.168.0.254 server's NIC -- it should be 192.168.1.254
09:43
<ogra>
Blinny, you dont need two client roots ... just share one to both networks
09:43
(in /etc/exports)
09:44
<Blinny>
ogra: and 'root-path' in dhcpd.conf will be the same for both subnets, except different server IPs?
09:44
<cliebow_>
Blinny showmount -e and see if /opt is shared out to your.1 network
09:45
<Blinny>
cliebow_: Yes. '/opt/ltsp/i386-1 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0'
09:45
<cliebow_>
ogra:it should automagically find bcm15.sys?
09:46
<Blinny>
ogra: The reason I created two client roots was because I needed to define SERVER in lts.conf differently for each subnet so that the two would be kept separate.
09:46
<sbalneav>
ogra: cool
09:47
<cliebow_>
1.0 and 0.0 are differnt subnets huh..so two cards onr for each subnet? then you should get nfs for 1.0 on perhaps 192.168.1.254
09:48
<Blinny>
To my eye, there must be some error in dhcpd.conf that tells a 192.168.1.* client to mount a 192.168.1.* share from a 192.168.0.254 server
09:48efra has joined #ltsp
09:48
<efra>
Morning everybody
09:48
<Blinny>
cliebow_: Yeah. Two NICs, two subnets, two switches.
09:49
cliebow_: I agree. I *should* get NFS for 1.0 on .1.254 however the .1.* clients mount root from .0.254 and I don't know why.
09:50
<jammcq>
Blinny: what is your 'root-path' set to ?
09:51
<Blinny>
jammcq: I have two shared-network definitions, each with a subnet in dhcpd.conf. Each one has its own 'root-path'. for 192.168.0.0/24 the 'root-path' is "192.168.0.254:/opt/ltsp/i386"; for 192.168.1.0/24 the 'root-path' is "192.168.1.254:/opt/ltsp/i386-1";
09:51
I copied those directly from the dhcpd.conf file just to make sure I wasn't seeing things (;
09:53
<jammcq>
can you email your complete dhcpd.conf file to me at jam@ltsp.org ?
09:53
<Blinny>
I think it's mounting the correct location, however somehow the client is requesting the mount over the wrong NIC.
09:53
( mountd[28952]: authenticated mount request from ws1-251.ltsp1:937 for /opt/ltsp/i386-1 (/opt/ltsp/i386-1))
09:54
<jammcq>
also, on the server, do this: ifconfig -a
09:54
and email me the results
09:54
and one more thing: showmount -e
09:54
send me those results too
09:55
<Blinny>
jammcq: Oops. First email already went out. Subsequent will follow.
09:55
<jammcq>
no prob
09:57
<ogra>
cliebow_, it shoudl, yes ... and install the firmware into /lib/firmware
10:00g333k has joined #ltsp

<jammcq>
Blinny: are you sure there's no chance that your 2 nics are physically connected in some way?
10:03
<Blinny>
jammcq: Other than being in the same machine, yes. Both go to fiber lines to separate switches in separate buildings.
10:03
<jammcq>
hmm
10:04
<Blinny>
jammcq: I do get this on the client, recurring: "nfs: server 192.168.0.254 not responding, still trying' \n 'nfs: server 192.168.0.254 OK'
10:04
each message is roughly a minute apart
10:04
<jammcq>
what's the IP addr of the client?
10:04
<Blinny>
jammcq: 192.168.1.252
10:04
<jammcq>
this is k12ltsp-5.0 ?
10:05
<Blinny>
Yes.
10:05
x86_64
10:05
<jammcq>
so it's ltsp-4.1 I think
10:05
<Blinny>
I think so; the first with localdev support IIRC
10:06
<pscheie>
k12ltsp5 is ltsp-4.2
10:06
<jammcq>
so, the next thing I'd try is capturing a packet trace.
10:06
do this:
10:06
tcpdump -i eth1 -s 1520 -w /tmp/tcpdump.out
10:06
and then try booting the client
10:06
after a minute or so, kill the tcpdump
10:07
and mail me the /tmp/tcpdump.out file AS AN ATTACHMENT
10:07
<cliebow_>
ogra:seems i have to d/l bcm15.sys independently
10:07
<ogra>
that shouldnt be ...
10:08

10:08
?
10:08
<ogra>
sudo dpkg-reconfigure bcm43xx-fwcutter
10:08
<Blinny>
jammcq: Let me kill my NXSession on eth1 so you don't get tons of extra crap
10:08
<jammcq>
Blinny: yeah, that would be great
10:08
<ogra>
that will attempt the download again
10:08
even though it should have asked you before
10:09
<Blinny>

Extracting firmware from an old driver is bad..Choose a more recent one
10:15

10:17
<Blinny>
jammcq: Thank you for taking the time to look at this. I only hope it's not some silly configuration parameter I've skewered.
10:22
jammcq: The only other possibly-relevant piece of information I can think of is that the switches are managed. They're still at default values, as they're new. However, I can mount the .1.254 NFS exports from a normal-boot Fedora machine on .1.* without issues or latency.

<Joffrey>
hello i have to make a LTSP server and i have a problem. when i want to log in with my username and password my screen turns black and after a couple of sec it returns to the log screen can anyone help me
10:27
<ogra>
Joffrey, which distro ?
10:31
<Joffrey>
Ubuntu 6.10
10:31
<ogra>
run: sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys on the server and try to log in again on the client
10:33
<Joffrey>
did that allready
10:33
<ogra>
do you have sabayon installed ?
10:34
<Joffrey>
what is that :)
10:34
<ogra>
ok, ten you likely dont
10:34
check the users ~/.xsession-errors file
10:34
it might reveal something
10:34
<Joffrey>
just a second
10:36
<jammcq>
Blinny: dude, I'm seeing 'Option 17: Root Path = "192.168.0.254:/opt/ltsp/i386-1"' in your packet stream
10:37
<Blinny>
jammcq: Are all instances of /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/* set via lts.conf's SERVER field?
10:37bjohnson has quit IRC
10:37
<jammcq>
huh?
10:38
at the point of doing the NFS mount, we don't have a /opt/ltsp/i386/etc yet
10:38
<Blinny>
jammcq: I'm too new to LTSP to be able to think of places where that could begin manifestation other than lts.conf and dhcpd.conf, both of which are set correctly as far as I can see.
10:38
<jammcq>
dhcpd.conf is correct now, but is there any chance you haven't restarted dhcpd since making the change?
10:38
<Blinny>
jammcq: Ah, okay. Thank you. -- so it must be in the dhcpd.conf options then?
10:38
jammcq: heh I wish
10:39
jammcq: I'll do it again just to be sure. (;
10:39
<jammcq>
yeah
10:39
and.... what's the complete pathname to your dhcpd.conf ?
10:39
seems like eric did something to create a new location for the file, but that might be for k12ltsp-6.0
10:40
<Blinny>
Yeah, when I've said 'dhcpd.conf' I've really meant 'dhcpd-k12ltsp.conf' -- I edited for simplicity's sake
10:40
<jammcq>
k
10:40
heh, I see the problem :)
10:40
<Blinny>
jammcq: I see this in dhcpd-k12ltsp.conf: 'if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 20, 3) = "ppc" { do something} else {192.168.0.254}"
10:41
jammcq: Is that what you saw?
10:41
<jammcq>
right
10:41
that's the problem
10:41
<Blinny>
Shesh.
10:41
<jammcq>
yeah, change it to 1.254
10:41
on both of those lines
10:41
<Blinny>
My mind skippd right over that, thinking "I don't use ppc". You'd think I had the hang of if/then clauses by now (;
10:41
<jammcq>
only in the 2nd shared network
10:41
<Blinny>
Testing now
10:42
Hrm.
10:43
Now it mounts root correctly, but the same message appears, albeit with 192.168.1.254 instead. "nfs: server 192.168.1.254 is not responding, still trying'
10:43
rpc.mountd, nfsd and rpc.rquotad are all running
10:44
<jammcq>
yeah, does it eventually work?
10:44
<Blinny>
And, messages says: mountd[28952]: authenticated mount request from ws1-251.ltsp1:937 for /opt/ltsp/i386-1 (/opt/ltsp/i386-1) -- I'm guessing this is the first mount prior to the SwitchRoot?
10:44
<jammcq>
"first mount" ?
10:44
i'm not sure what you mean
10:45
there's only 1 NFS mount taking place
10:45
<Blinny>
jammcq: The client says: "Mounting root filesystem: /opt/ltsp/i386-1 from: 192.168.1.254" and proceeds for another five lines or so. I was assuming this meant a successful mount
10:45
<jammcq>
yeah, that's a success
10:45
the 'nfs server not responding' is happening AFTER the mount
10:46
<Blinny>
Yes.
10:46
Next is 'setting up new root ramdisk area', then 'doing the switchroot', then the switchroot tag, then 'Freeing ram used by initramfs', then the errors
10:47
Still hanging, though not locked. I haven't yet received the 'OK' I received before, after which it would continue to throw non-response errors
10:47
<jammcq>
Blinny: can you get to the ltsp wiki ?
10:48
<Blinny>
jammcq: Absolutely.
10:48
<jammcq>
somehow, I can't get there from here
10:48
<Blinny>
Oh wait. 'Connecting to wiki.ltsp.org' -- no response.
10:49
<Joffrey>
hello i have to make a LTSP server and i have a problem. when i want to log in with my username and password my screen turns black and after a couple of sec it returns to the log screen can anyone help me
10:50
<Blinny>
jammcq: I'm guessing you're restarting the service, and now it's DOA
10:50
<jammcq>
Blinny: had to restart apache. it's working now :)
10:50
<mhterres_>
I'm back
10:50
<jammcq>
Blinny: ok, read this article:
10:50
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/NFS#NFS_Server_not_responding
10:50
<Blinny>
jammcq: Thanks, will do.
10:51
<mhterres_>
again with my xdosemu problem :-(
10:52
<Blinny>
jammcq: Will these option-128's override previously set option-128's of "code 128 = string" in dhcpd.conf?
10:53vanya has quit IRC
10:53
<jammcq>
Blinny: the entry you already have in dhcpd.conf is only setting up the 'TYPE' of option for 128
10:53
it's not setting a value
10:53
<Blinny>
jammcq: Excellent. Success.
10:54
jammcq: Thank you very much for all your assistance, via email as well as IRC.
10:54
jammcq: Sorry for it turning out to be a stupid configuration parameter; I was afraid of that.
10:54
<jammcq>
no problem-o
10:55
<ogra>
mhterres_, whats the prob, dosemu runs fine here ... even on a ppc client :)
10:56
<mhterres_>
ogra, xdosemu is not working in the clients
10:56
let me see the error
10:56MoL0ToV has quit IRC

<Blinny>
jammcq: Oh, wow this thing is fast. Now to convert all my users from Win98 to this. Hurray!
10:56
<ogra>
hmm, whats xdosemu ? i only see dosemu
10:56
<Blinny>
jammcq: Cheers mate. I'm going to play.
10:57
jammcq: Thanks again.
10:57Blinny has quit IRC
10:58
<mhterres_>
ogra, xdosemu = dosemu -X :-)
10:59
ogra
10:59
X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)

11:00
<jammcq>
mhterres_: ahhh, can't do Shm on remote terminals
11:01
Shm is X Shared Memory, where the client and the server share a piece of memory
11:01
but you can't do that remotely
11:02
<mhterres_>
$_X_mitshm = (off)
11:02
<jammcq>
did that fix it?
11:02
<mhterres_>
no
11:02
that is the problem
11:02
:-(
11:03
<jammcq>
are you sure you specified the option correctly?
11:03
I've never used xdosemu
11:03
<mhterres_>
yes, Gadi said yesterday to do this
11:08
ogra, any idea ?
11:08
<ogra>
nope, like jammcq i never used dosemu
11:08
but i see the same error
11:09
<mhterres_>
hmmm
11:09
<Joffrey>
hello i have to make a LTSP server and i have a problem. when i want to log in with my username and password my screen turns black and after a couple of sec it returns to the log screen can anyone help me
11:09
<ogra>
Joffrey, whats the error log file saying i pointed you to ?
11:10
<Joffrey>
i cant find the one you mean
11:10
whats the dir
11:10
<ogra>
the homedir of the user
11:10
there is a file .xsession-errors
11:10
look into it
11:10
see if you find errors
11:12Joffrey has quit IRC
11:12Joffrey has joined #ltsp
11:12
<Joffrey>
think i found it
11:13
<ogra>
what does it say ?
11:14
<Joffrey>
no window manager and no xterm
11:14
gnome message ..... returning -1
11:14
<ogra>
but you installed it on a standard ubuntu 6.10, right ?
11:14* Lumiere thinks he may need to clean . dirs
11:14
<Joffrey>
yes 6.10 servers
11:14
<ogra>
not on an ubuntu server
11:15
that cant work
11:15
ltsp needs a desktop installed
11:15
<Joffrey>
?
11:15
so i have to have a desktop edition before it can work ? no server of 6.10 ?
11:15
<cliebow_>
apt-get install edubuntu-desktop
11:15
<ogra>
or ubuntu-desktop :)
11:15
<cliebow_>
or ubuntu-desktop
11:15
or..or/
11:15
<ogra>
Joffrey, right
11:16
ltsp needs somethin you can log in to :)
11:16
<Joffrey>
but i use a thin client and when that starts up a graphical log screen appears
11:16
<ogra>
yep, thats running locally on the client
11:17
as soon as you log in you log in to the server and the ltsp loginmanager wants to start an X session
11:17
if there is no desktop environment it cant start that :)
11:17
<Joffrey>
so first i have to have a desktop edition and repeat the ltsp quickinstall from the ubuntu site and than it should work?
11:17
<ogra>
well, you can as well just apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
11:18
<jammcq>
Joffrey: just add a desktop environment to your current server
11:18
<ogra>
even thouch you likely want a desktop kernel as well ... the server kernel has preemption disabled
11:18
<jammcq>
they already showed you how
11:18
apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
11:18
it's sooooo easy
11:19
<Joffrey>
not for a noob like me ;)
11:19JMBarbosa has joined #ltsp
11:19
<Joffrey>
it's for a school assigment
11:19
<jammcq>
even a noob can type that command
11:19
<ogra>
or copy and paste it :)
11:19
behind a sudo :)
11:20
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
11:20
is better :)
11:20
<cliebow_>
even cliebow can type that..twice..without an error
11:21
<Joffrey>
can you give me some tips to make ltsp a little bit better because it's for school and i want to get some good points you know ;)
11:21
<ogra>
Joffrey, you should really have taken edubuntu then ...
11:21
thats targeted at edubuntu
11:21
err shools
11:22
<Joffrey>
i'm going to try all the platforms with ltsp ;) so edubuntu is the next one :)
11:22
is it that easy ?
11:22
<ogra>
if you have two network cards in the server it should all work out of the box

Oooooh - 'ltsp-update-sshkeys'. You mean I didn't have to do that manually??!? :-)
11:39
<ogra>
moquist, usually not ... its done by ltsp-build-client or by an if-up.d script if the interface comes up
11:40
<moquist>
ogra: Heh - OK, if what I sent you is already useful, great. But I could do a lot more as long as I know I'm not doing something drastically wrong...
11:40
<ogra>
it is useful ... we'll create a udeb from it to preseed the debconf data for slapd and pam-ldap
11:41
<moquist>
ogra: Right. But I had old ssh keys I wanted to use on my new Edubuntu installation, so I replaced the contents of /etc/ssh/. After a while I figured out that this meant I had to replace /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts.
11:41
<ogra>
(udebs are only run by the installer)
11:42
<moquist>
Hmm. OK. I'd like to help more but I don't know what to do or how to test.
11:42
...and I just haven't had the tons of time yet to sit around and figure all of that out.
11:42
:\
11:42
<ogra>
hmm, i thought we had an opportunity to use /etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts.ltsp
11:43
or something similar ...
11:43
<moquist>
?
11:43
<ogra>
vagrant once worked on a patch fpr that ... but ssems it never landed
11:43
(for additional sshkeys)
11:45
<moquist>
ogra: would you be interested in a patch to allow sysadmins to specify multiple "application servers" in lts.conf; each TC would then choose an application server (deterministically or not). This would provide user-level load balancing of sorts.
11:45
I say "a" patch, but I'm not sure quite how much it would really take.
11:46
ogra: It was about 20 lines of shell in the LTSP screenrc, but Edubuntu also has the ssh keys to worry about, and I'd have to think more about how to make the configuration as secure+automagic as possible. (In straight LTSP the sysadmin just lists her hosts in lts.conf.)
11:46
<ogra>
define "application server"
11:47
you mean the ssh server ?
11:47
or the nfs server ?
11:47
<moquist>
ogra: In the straight-LTSP implementation, we just connected to a different XDMCP server.
11:47
<ogra>
so the ssh server then
11:47
<moquist>
ogra: Yes.
11:48
<ogra>
if its sane and doesnt require users to type user@serverip like vagrant wanted to add it to ldm
11:48
<moquist>
ogra: BTW, we've switched to Edubuntu at the High School now, where we have several hundred TCs.
11:48
<ogra>
wow !
11:48
and everything is fine ?
11:48
<moquist>
Two Edubuntu servers, DHCP failover between two servers.
11:49
<ogra>
nice !

11:50
<ogra>
yeah
11:50
<moquist>
ogra: Also, there are some local political reasons I don't want to make too big a deal out of it.
11:50
<ogra>
well ...
11:50
:)
11:53
<moquist>
ogra: I *have* put my killing-me-mostly script in place, so every login kills all of a user's other processes. I suppose I could add a logging feature to the script, so that we have a record of how much and what it has to kill.
11:53
That would help with debugging.
11:54
<ogra>
tie it to an ssh login ... if there is no parent kill it ... then its proper and you wont kill multiple logins
11:55
but loggong would help for a start
11:55
so i can tackle the real problems
11:55
<moquist>
tie "it" to an ssh login? tie what?
11:55
<ogra>
the killing ...
11:55
dont kill anything thats a child of an sshd process
11:56* moquist nods. I'll put the logging in place and that'll tell me more about what's going on.

Hi guys! anyone can tell me what is the file /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default and what is it for? thank you?
14:10
<sepski>
paolob-parroquia, it's the default config file for pxe booting
14:10
<paolob-parroquia>
sepski, ogra told me: try adding: "MOPTS=nolock,ro,wsize=2048,rsize=2048" to the kernel line in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
14:10
should I add it on the 1st line (DEFAULT=....) or in a separate line?
14:11
<sepski>
append it to the first line.
14:11msinhore has quit IRC

<sepski>
it's um
14:11
wait i dont know :)
14:11
looks like a separate line
14:12
<paolob-parroquia>
where is that file documented?
14:13
<sepski>
it's just the kernel arguments , so i assumed it was on one line.
14:14
append it to the kernel line.
14:17
<paolob-parroquia>
sepski, ok
14:18
sepski, the line would be: DEFAULT vmlinuz ro initrd=initrd.img quiet splash MOPTS=nolock,ro,wsize=4096,rsize=4096
14:18
is it reasonable?
14:20
<sepski>
actualy i think it depends on your pxe version. i see examples to both things on google
14:20
so im perplexed
14:20
try one first. then the other :)

So I've been interested in trying to make users part of groups, and in those groups, they have access to certain applications. i.e. admins would be able to add/remove software, cust service reps would be able to only use gaim, thunderbird, and firefox, etc etc.
18:18
I know this is more of a Linux-centric question, and not necessarily that of LTSP, but I thought it would be best to ask here since I'm sure you guys would be familiar with that just due to the nature of how LTSP works.

hi all
22:18
anyone installed Xubuntu with LTSP
22:19
<Shingoshi>
Has anyone here used LTSP to boot openmosix?
22:19
<knight>
and is the issue with the thin client shuttingsdown the ltsp server resolved
22:20
openmosix is that the cluster application
22:20
<Shingoshi>
yes
22:20
<knight>
why would you want to do that
22:20
<echo09090>
anyone know how to point the thinclient to the server when using an etherboot floppy?
22:20
<knight>
:???
22:21
it should look for an dhcp server
22:21
<Shingoshi>
I would like to have only one server providing my cluster's kernel to all units on the network.
22:21
<knight>
if you have one settup to redirect it to a image file
22:22
isnt cluster about making all units work as one
22:22

Yes. But I have already seen a blurb on it on the internet. It provides for a unified architecture across all machines.
22:24
<knight>
ok
22:25
meaning that they all work on the same workload
22:25
same thing I said

but on simple terms
22:26
this is good to know
22:26
and interesting Idea
22:29vagrantc has joined #ltsp

<Shingoshi>
There are two things I believe should be standard in every linux kernel. LTSP and openMosix.
22:30
If these two things were present, Linux would truly be an Enterprise Networking System without rival.
22:31
<dan__t>
Well good thing that places like www.ltsp.org exist ;)
22:31
<Shingoshi>
You would only have to install it once, and everything would be automatic.
22:32echo09090 has left #ltsp
22:33
<Shingoshi>
You would never have to worry about verifying compatibilty across your network. There would only be one point to configure for the whole environment.
22:36
<knight>
oh ok
22:36
thats cool
22:38
<Shingoshi>
Check it out on the internet. Someone wrote a peice about it. Just google this; LTSP-openmosix
22:40
There is even a distribution which is set up for this.
22:40
The problem for me is that I am x86_64!

22:50* vagrantc notes for reference that LTSP is not part of the linux kernel, per se ...
22:56
<Shingoshi>
But it would be nice if it could somehow be attached, so that when you install the kernel, you automatically also have LTSP.
22:57
Kind of like the one default application that everyone gets uniformly.
22:57
<vagrantc>
LTSP is a collection of services...
22:57
it is not part of the kernel.
22:58
it is a bunch of services that when properly configured, provide an LTSP environment ...
22:58
<Shingoshi>
Ok, I understand that. I am just saying it would be nice if the kernel came bundled with LTSP. We wouldn't be worse off for it.
22:59
<vagrantc>
i don't really understand why you are trying to tie LTSP to the kernel ...
22:59
it doesn't make any sense to me ...
22:59
<mathesis>
i have a card video with chipset sis
22:59
<vagrantc>
i could see "it would be nice if LTSP was automatically configured"
22:59
but that has little to nothing to do with the kernel ...
23:00
<mathesis>
and whe XSERVER=sis tne try in the tty
23:00
<Shingoshi>
If everyone had LTSP, any environment of multiple computers would have only one point of configuration and distribution. You would only have to install Linux ONCE.
23:00
<mathesis>
*and when XSERVER=sis tne try in the tty
23:01
and no startx in kde
23:01
<Shingoshi>
If the kernel was preconfigured as openmosix, every Linux installation would be a cluster.
23:02
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: well, there are *many* situations in which the services that LTSP uses would not be at all desireable... but yes, making LTSP easy to install where you want it installed is something i can many people in the ltsp channel could agree is a good thing.
23:02
ditto for openmosix
23:03
<Shingoshi>
What situations are not appropriate?
23:03
<vagrantc>
it would be a huge security hole to have LTSP running on my firewall, mail server or web server.
23:03
<Shingoshi>
Couldn't you set up controls for them?
23:04
<vagrantc>
well, i'd rather not have to spend a lot of energy deconfiguring services that i have absolutely no use for.
23:04
and actually introduce additional points of potential security holes ...
23:04
<Shingoshi>
I have IpCop for my firewall. Give me a moment to explain myself and see if you still disagree with me.
23:04
Hold on.
23:05
There are many advancements taking place in Linux. One of them is virtualization.
23:06
It gives you the ability to have one machine running multiple os's.
23:06
Let's say we kept all of our networking controlled by something like ipcop.
23:07
All external networking were channeled through it.
23:08
Yes it would require everyone to have two network cards o the master machine. But that's no big deal.
23:09
A red interface for external access. Green for internal access.
23:09
All of your openmosix and LTSP would be on the green interface.
23:10
With only one machine, you have security controlled by it. The master machine.
23:10
That machine would be your application server and your firewall.
23:11
Virtualization could run ipcop.
23:11
No one on the outside could break through what is essentially a chroot where ipcop would be running.
23:12
Done^^^
23:13
What do you think now?

<mathesis>
vagrantc: tengo un problema con un cliente
23:14
<vagrantc>
i still fail to see how forcing this on *everyone* will not cause undue and unnecessary complication for those who do not need all these services. i think you'd be much better off merely making it easy to set up this environment so people can easily configure it.
23:14
you will never win anyone with a one size fits all approach.

Think of something a simple as a home network. One computer with all applications on that computer serving the entire home.
23:15
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: how wil lthat scale to a 10,000 computer network?
23:16g333k has quit IRC
23:16
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: your fundamental premise is that there is no situation in which this would actually be detrimental, and i just don't buy into that premise.
23:16
<Shingoshi>
I think it would actually simplify things. Does Linux scale across 10000 computers? Openmosix may not have that limitation.
23:16
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: but i strongly encourage you to make it an option.
23:17
<Shingoshi>
Besides, if it become the major point of activity for Linux, every application could be developed to support it including the kernel.
23:17
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: and i think it is a useful idea that would interfere with many existing installations.
23:18
<Shingoshi>
You could always turn it off!
23:18
<vagrantc>
if i wanted to spend all day turning things off, i'd run windows.
23:18
<Shingoshi>
Just having something, doesn't mean you are forced to use it.
23:18
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: how well do you think this would work on an embedded device?
23:19
<Shingoshi>
It depends on how many devices were on the network.
23:19
<vagrantc>
and just because something might be useful to lots of people doesn't mean everyone should have to include it.,
23:20
<Shingoshi>
Think of public libraries with multiple computers. Or colleges. All of them would suddenly without effort be clustered.
23:21
As well as having applications readily available to everyone. With security restrictions provided.
23:21
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: you don't have to sell me anything. i see how the idea would be useful.
23:21
<Shingoshi>
Are you a developer?
23:21
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: and you continue to ignore my fundamental point.
23:22
yes, i develop LTSP for debian...
23:22
amoung other things...
23:22
<Shingoshi>
Can we continue this elsewhere?
23:22
<vagrantc>
there is really nothing to continue- you seem to miss my entire point.
23:24
<Shingoshi>
You believe it would be wrong to force this option on everyone. I get that. I also said it would be optional. Just immediately available to anyone who wants it, without having to configure it.
23:25
There are many features in the Kernel that are optional. If you don't want them, you either turn them off or don't enable them.
23:26
<vagrantc>
Shingoshi: have you set up LTSP before?
23:26
<Shingoshi>
It's just like filesystems. I use xfs. Not every one does.
23:26
I am running slackware. Do I need to say more???
23:26
LOLOL!
23:27
<vagrantc>
i'm just really perplexed why you keep talking about features in the kernel...
23:27
<Shingoshi>
No. I was wrong about LTSP in the kernel. But not openmosix. That requires the kernel.
23:28
openmosix requires a custom kernel.
23:28
So not too many people know about it.
23:30
The reason why I included LTSP and openmosix together, is because you can only have one version of openmosix on your network. That would be solved by LTSP.
23:31
I am currently transitioning to Gentoo-AMD64.
23:31
<vagrantc>
well, there are reasons that openmosix hasn't been merged into the mainline kernel ...
23:31
<Shingoshi>
They have both of these.
23:31
How about low contribution.
23:32mathesis has left #ltsp

<Shingoshi>
I guess I just have big ideas. I would like to see less fragmentation in Linux.
23:33
It seems like everytime anyone wants to do something, they
23:33
they're told to start a new distro.
23:34
<vagrantc>
well, my work on ltsp actually is to get rid of the LTSP distro and integrate it into existing distros ...
23:34
<Shingoshi>
I would also like to see OM run as a kernel module. Just like BSD has linux kernel support as a module.
23:35
That's preciselly what I am saying!
23:35
<vagrantc>
essentially though, it is the burden of the person with some idea to demonstrate to the skeptics why it would be better.
23:35
openmosix is likely far too intrusive a patch to make it a module.
23:36
<Shingoshi>
I guess my idea is a problem for distributions which make money from Linux. It would limit their sales potentials.
23:36
<vagrantc>
pfft.
23:37
no, your idea needs a *huge* amount of fleshing out and proof of concept before people are going to accept it.
23:37
<Shingoshi>
Well, think of SuSE. Do you think they would support selling less boxes of Linux to their customers.
23:38
Or Redhat for that matters.
23:38
I just need to get LTSP running on my system. After that, it's easy!
23:39
