Folks, I have a weird problem: I cannot unpack (cpio -imud) and immediately repack (cpio -o -H newc) LTSP-5's initrd.img. If I do that, the LTSP client boots the kernel, but panics with: "Failed to execute /init/", "Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found." -- See http://channels.debian.net/paste/5181
05:04
I've searched the web hi and lo, and the steps I executed seem to be perfectly right. But still, the repacked initrd.img doesn't work. :-(
05:06
Could anyone repeat the few steps in http://channels.debian.net/paste/5181 and see if their LTSP client still boots?

<ogra>
why would you fiddle with the initramfs ? and if you really need to do thet, use initramfs-tools
05:28
*that
05:29
(the ubuntu initrd has *all* possible modules included)
05:29
is that debian ?
05:29
<mjk>
ogra: Yep, Debian.
05:29
ogra: I have to fiddle, because it seems that LTSP tries to boot from eth0, but my client needs to be booted from eth4.
05:30wizzy has joined #ltsp

<mjk>
ogra: http://channels.debian.net/paste/5180
05:31
<ogra>
mjk, thats trivial
05:31
<mjk>
ogra: What? tell meeeeeeeee!!
05:31* mjk has found initramfs.conf which has a DEVICE=eth0 declaration. And that's what he wanted to change.
05:32
<mjk>
And this initramfs.conf is inside the initrd.img.
05:32
<ogra>
edit /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf and rund update-initramfs -u
05:32
no need for manual fiddling
05:33
<mjk>
ogra: Wow!
05:33
ogra: If this works, then ... "actually" all my problems might be solved!
05:33
ogra: Thanks!
05:34
<ogra>
thats how ubuntu works (we worte the initramfs-tools stuff) :)
05:34
<mjk>
ogra: But additionally: Why can't I modify an initrd successfully? I cannot even repack the cpio archive, and according to "file" and to the Web, everything looks perfect! Except that the re-packed initrd.img isn't accepted by the LTSP client. :-/
05:34
<ogra>
look at what update-initramfs does, its only a script
05:35
<mjk>
ogra: Yes, and it does (via calling mkinitramfs) what I do: (cd "${DESTDIR}" && find . | cpio --quiet --dereference -o -H newc | gzip -9 >"${outfile}")
05:36
ogra: I used exactly the same line, but still the initrd didn't work.
05:36
ogra: Could my cpio be broken? Well, I'll try running update-initramfs as you suggested, then we'll see
05:37
<ogra>
right
05:37
if you need a certain version that should be solved thrugh dependencies ... else debian broke something
05:39
<mjk>
ogra: Okay. I'll test update-initramfs now ... if it doesn't work, either, it might be Debian's fault, and if it /does/ work, I'm gonna analyze mkinitramfs further.
05:40
<ogra>
it should work, debian uses it by default ...
05:40
that would be a major RC bug
05:40
<mjk>
ogra: Yeah, Debian sometimes updates its own initrd after certain upgrades, so it /should/ work.
05:41
<cliebow>
ogra:wierd stuff..swapping yaboot.confs back and forth..the old ppc kernel nfs mounts every time..the ltsp5 wont mount at all
05:41
<ogra>
yeah, you have to update the initrd in certain cases
05:42
<cliebow>
ill lok you up gfrom school if that is ok
05:43
that Is English..more or less
05:43
<ogra>
heh
05:43
ok
05:50
<mjk>
ogra: One more question: What is affected by changing /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf? Only LTSP? I fear that it affects more than that, and I don't want to break my Debian installation.
05:52
<ogra>
err, indeed you only change it in the chroot
05:52
and run the update command in there
05:52
<mjk>
ogra: Aaaaah!
05:52
<ogra>
then ctrl-d out of the chroot and run ltsp-update-kernels
05:53
<mjk>
ogra: So just edit it, "chroot /opt/ltsp/i386", "update-initramfs", Ctrl-D, "ltsp-update-kernels", right?
05:53
<ogra>
right, but dont edit your servers initramfs.conf indeed
05:53
<mjk>
ogra: Yeah, only /opt/ltsp one =)
05:54
ogra: Oh, /another/ tiny question! :-} Why is there "BOOT=local" in the chroot-initramfs.conf?
05:54
ogra: Shouldn't that be "BOOT=nfs"?
05:55
<ogra>
yes
05:55
<mjk>
ogra: Interesting ... but with the default (I didn't change it!) "BOOT=local", the LTSP client booted (err, until waiting for IP-config eth0 :-}
05:56
<ogra>
see /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/ltsp :)
05:56
or wherever debian puts the override file
05:56
<mjk>
ogra: Hm, that's empty
05:56
ogra: Oh, okay ...
05:56
ogra: Will check where it is
05:56
<ogra>
might be in /usr/share ...
05:58
<mjk>
Let's do a find / -xdev ... :-)
06:00
ogra: Yep, it's in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/initramfs-tools/conf.d/ltsp
06:01
ogra: So changing BOOT in initramfs.conf wouldn't make any difference, as it's overridden by ...conf.d/ltsp, right?
06:04
<ogra>
yep
06:04
<mjk>
ogra: Thanks a lot! Now I feel informed and safe. :-)
06:10
Okay, testing updated initramfs.conf now ...

As I can't find it in http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/TroubleShooting, I'll ask here: What do I need to log in as root? (Can't log in as user, as the LTSP client is normally the server for /home :-)
06:48
Um .. that Searchfield on wiki.ltsp.org is ... strange, to say the least. :-) No hits for "login" or "log in" or "username".
06:48
!login
06:48
<ltspbot`>
mjk: Error: "login" is not a valid command.
06:49vanya has joined #ltsp
06:52
<mjk>
Hm, okay, I found out that the root account in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/shadow is disabled ("!" as password). Is there a clean way of activating the root account? Or should I copy my LTSP server's encrypted password string to the chrooted shadow?
06:53
Embarassing. It's more or less explained in Debian's /usr/share/doc/ltsp-server/workstation. Sorry for the waste of bandwidth! :-(

Hi, how can I disable the Ctrl + Alt + F2, Ctrl + Alt + F3...... Ctrl + Alt + F12 ?
09:21kaminski-ltsp-br has quit IRC
09:28
<mjk>
g333k_work: You could comment out the appropriate entries in your /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/inittab, I guess.
09:29
g333k_work: You then might still be able to switch consoles, but those are just empty screens without logins.
09:31
<g333k_work>
mjk, what I want to avoid is if someone press ctrl+alt+f2 the station stay with a blank screen (because the empty tty), any other clue?
09:32
<mjk>
g333k_work: I think there's a compile time option (don't know if kernel or X11) to disable VT switching.
09:33
g333k_work: But you could instead simply edit /etc/issue and put a text there like "This is a text mode console. To get back to the X Window System (your "desktop"), hit Ctrl-Alt-F7 simultaneously.
09:33
"
09:34
g333k_work: Option "DontVTSwitch" in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
09:36
g333k_work: See xorg.conf(5) on where to put it exactly.
09:36
<g333k_work>

hello everybody :-D
10:06
I need some help with printers in thin clients
10:07
who can help me ?
10:07
:-)
10:07
hi jammcq, hi ogra
10:07
hey cliebow
10:12cliebow_ has joined #ltsp
10:18cliebow__ has joined #ltsp

<jammcq>
mhterres: printers are easy... You still using 4.2 ?
10:18nicoAMG has quit IRC
10:18
<mhterres>
jammcq, no 5
10:18
jammcq, the question is
10:18
jammcq, I added the printer parameters in lts.conf
10:19
<jammcq>
ok
10:19
<mhterres>
I need to know if all thin clients could access this printer in a specific client
10:19
do I need to add it in cups ?
10:19
<jammcq>
umm, I don't know if ltsp-5 in ubuntu supports printers
10:19
<mhterres>
in the server ?
10:19
<jammcq>
yes, you add it to cups
10:20
<mhterres>
it's a matricial printer
10:20
<jammcq>
matrix printer?
10:20envite has quit IRC
10:20
<mhterres>
yes
10:20
sorry :-)
10:20
<jammcq>
is there a cups driver for it?
10:20
<mhterres>
I mixed portuguese and english
10:20
it is raw
10:20
<jammcq>
heh
10:20
<mhterres>
no driver
10:20
<cliebow__>
ogra: so i ned to mount the intrd?
10:20
<jammcq>
yeah, use raw
10:21
mhterres: you using edgy or dapper?
10:21
<mhterres>
but in cups, I use ipp ? socket ?
10:21
dapper
10:21
that is my question
10:21
<jammcq>
i'm pretty sure printing is not supported
10:21
for LTSP-4.2, we use socket:
10:21
<mhterres>
cause all clients need to print it using a clipper app running on dosemu :-)
10:21
<jammcq>
but, that's cuz we have lp_server running, waiting for a socket connection
10:21
<mhterres>
hmmm, It'll be a problem
10:22
<jammcq>
where is dosemu running, on the client or on the server?
10:22
<ogra>
jammcq, ???
10:22
<mhterres>
socket, port 9100, correct ?
10:22
<ogra>
indeed printing is supported
10:22
<mhterres>
jammcq, running in the client using LTSP
10:22
<jammcq>
ogra: in dapper ltsp ?
10:22
<ogra>
no, since edgy
10:22
<mhterres>
oh no
10:22
:-(
10:22
<jammcq>
but, he's using dapper, so it's not supported :(
10:22
<mhterres>
another problem
10:22
<ogra>
right
10:23
<mhterres>
hmmm, I can use edgy cause I need a LTS distro
10:23
<ogra>
dappers ltsp was far from the shiny edgy implementaion
10:23
<mhterres>
oops
10:23
can't
10:23* jammcq thinks it would be great to offer Edgy LTSP packages for Dapper
10:23
<mhterres>
I have to go back to 4.2 again
10:23
<cliebow__>
ogra: ineed to mount the initrd?
10:23
<ogra>
jammcq, saldy not easily possible, else i would have done that already
10:23
<jammcq>
hmm
10:23
<ogra>
cliebow_, why would you want that ?
10:23
<mhterres>
jammcq, I agree, cause lots of people will use Dapper for a long time specially because LTS
10:24
hmmm
10:24
<jammcq>
mhterres: yes, exactly
10:24
<ogra>
jammcq, parts that are in universe in dapper went to main in edgy ... ltsp depends on them ...
10:24
<jammcq>
I REALLY like dapper
10:24Blinny has joined #ltsp
10:24
<ogra>
so it would be quite some hacking which i'm not allowed to do
10:24
<mhterres>
well, I'll go back to 4.2
10:25
but I still need to resolve the gdm/kdm problem :-)
10:25
<ogra>
policy is that the package needs to be plainly rebuilt and work on dapper to be beackported
10:25
<mhterres>
anyway
10:25
<cliebow__>
ogra: i thought you mentioned a change to initrd re nfs?
10:25
<ogra>
cliebow_, not to you, no ... that was to the guy who abuses muecow as LVM resizer
10:25
;)
10:26
jammcq, and -updates isnt allowed to add new features, only bugfixes ...
10:26
<cliebow__>
heh..so any clue why nfs is being such a pain?
10:26slipttees|lunch is now known as slipttees
10:26
<ogra>
is it ?
10:26
i have no problems here
10:26
<cliebow__>
if i use the 4.1 kernel nfs mount to either chroot works fine
10:26
ppc
10:27
<mjk>
ogra: I was abusing muecow as LVM resizer? Hey, it worked great! No piece of software was harmed! :-)
10:27
<ogra>
mjk, i didnt complain ... only facts ;)
10:27
<mjk>
ogra: :-)
10:28
<cliebow__>
but with the new kernel client stops at initramfs> command prompt and wireshark shows ERR_ACCESS for nfs
10:28
<ogra>
mjk, i'm happy that you did that... it shows how easy it is to tweak muecow to be anything you want :)
10:28
<jammcq>
ogra: but... it seems like the ltsp-build-client script could point to the edgy repository
10:28
<mjk>
ogra: Yeps. It was actually the perfect tool for that purpose.
10:28
<jammcq>
I guess I should dig in there more, to understand it better
10:28
<ogra>
jammcq, hmm, thats an option indeed, but would still need a bunch of code changes
10:29
<jammcq>
scotty and I are planning to get together in february, to get our minds back into this stuff
10:29
<ogra>
jammcq, the problem is that ltspfs for example needs tweaks on both sides
10:29
<jammcq>
ogra: yeah, that's true
10:30
<ogra>
while things like printing only need the edgy initscripts
10:30
<jammcq>
I think it's still something to consider
10:30
<ogra>
so i could add a mode to buuld from edgy in dapper but that would only help for some things ...
10:30
and i need allowance t add that *feature*
10:30
*to
10:31
<jammcq>
ogra: I completely understand
10:31
A guy still has to dream tho :)
10:31
<ogra>
cliebow__, hmm, i have no such problems here ... give me a hint how to reproduce it and i can fix it
10:31
<mhterres>
:-)
10:32
<ogra>
jammcq, you could host a repo for the edgy packages .... and we could tweak them there ... its no clean solution and mark wont like it ... (as well as mdz might chop off my head for it) but thats something thats possible
10:33
actually that would put some load on your new server to test it ;)
10:33
<jammcq>
ogra: lets just think about it for a bit, and maybe there's a good way
10:33* ogra hopes mdz doesnt look on his screen ... (he sits lsft of me)
10:33
<jammcq>
heh
10:33
did mdz move to the UK yet?
10:34

cliebow, can yu try it without 192.168.0.254: in your dhcpd.conf ?
10:35

Sure..
10:35

(only /opt/ltsp/powerpc)

jammcq, to finish my doubt, in 4.2 i Use socket, port 9100 ? Is it ?
10:36
<ogra>
i have seen something like that where it didnt work for a user with ip in that line ... at the beginning of the week ... smells like a bug ...
10:36
mhterres, its all the same over all ltsp versions and wont change ...
10:36
<jammcq>
mhterres: correct, and you can do: telnet 192.168.0.1 9100
10:36
to test it
10:36
<mhterres>
thanks
10:36
<ogra>
s/all ltsp versions/all ltsp evrsions apart from dapper and breezy/
10:41
<cliebow_>
ogra:same thing..no nfs mount
10:41
<ogra>
exports are correct on the server ?
10:42
well, if you can mount from other machines i suppose it is
10:42
<cliebow_>
but if i switch to other kernel..yes exports is fine
10:44
now i am booted to 4.1..bill_c s kernel and chroot
10:45
except there are no radeon drivers so x fails

<ogra>
cliebow_, i cant see a reason why it shouldnt work ..., sadly we have to leave the room so i have to log off
11:00
do you see mount requests on the server ?
11:03
<mathesis>
tail /var/log/syslog
11:08
<mhterres>
again the old gdm problem
11:09
If I try to logoff from a remote client (just try, don't need to logoff) the gdm parent is killed
11:09
then nobody else can login
11:11andresmujica has joined #ltsp
11:11
<cliebow_>
yes mount request v3 mount
11:11
<mhterres>
and If I use kdm instead of gdm, every time some one logoff from a client, the screen of server becames black and I need to press CTRL+ALT+F7 to return to X
11:11
<cliebow_>
v3 mount reply Error:Err_ACCESS
11:13
<ogra>
sounds like a server problem ... strange
11:13
if you see this in the servers logs at least
11:15
<cliebow_>
ill kepp frigging with it..got to be something stupid..
11:16
<ogra>
well, seems the request from the client gets through ...
11:16
the server is edgy ?
11:16
as well as the client chroot ?
11:17
<cliebow_>
yes it is
11:17
4 packets..mount request from client

11:18
<ogra>
thats portmap, isnt it ?
11:19
yeah ... /etc/services agrees
11:19
anything on port 2049 (nfs) ?
11:20
<cliebow_>
netstat shows it running alright
11:21
so i see tftp packets until packet 33476..then dhcp discoveroffer request ack
11:21
then arp isat
11:22
from client is aportmap dump call
11:22
10 sunrpc packets
11:22
then mount requesyt
11:23
<ogra>
right so the initramfs and kernel are fine ...
11:24
since you get beyond that steps
11:28
<cliebow_>
unionfs involved?

What the... My scroll wheel on my logitech usbmouse is all wonky, but only in Firefox - using it to switch between tabs switches backwards with an odd number of tabs (3, 5, 7), and only switches between two tabs if there are an even number (4, 6).

NVS appears to be very unstable.
13:07
Clients that reboot can no longer mount shares until the server is restarted, in most cases.
13:08
Is there a defined limit to the number of mounts that can be present off of a server?
13:09
<cliebow_>
you saying stale nfs mounts then?
13:09
nfs is rock solid here in rhel4
13:11

I guess that's what it appears to be, ees
13:11
yes

Wait, it's not only in firefox, it's only in dealing with tabs. Probably has something to do with the ZAxisMapping
13:28
Can I put things like 'ZAxisMapping "4 5"' in lts.conf for a workstation definition?
13:30
<dan__t>
Sure can.
13:30
er, wait.
13:36
I am not sure, check lts.conf.readme
13:36
Anyone know how one might go about killing a stale NFS share, from the server?
13:43
<cliebow_>
dan__t:set aside /var/lib/nfs create a new /var/lib/nfs restart..you can always fall back to original
13:44
<dan__t>
Eh I'm not too keen on doing that when I currently have 20 other machines with mounted NFS shares :/
13:44
<cliebow_>
Eh: that could be a problem
13:44
<dan__t>
yeap.
14:02
<Blinny>
What about video drivers for specific clients (such a Livna's kmod-nvidia package)?
14:02
I see where I can create workstation-specific xorg configuration files, however I'm wondering about the module loading. I guess that goes in lts.conf?

sucede que he instalado en un debian testing
18:58
<irule>
si?
18:58
<marce_gal>
y al momento de dar boot en los terminales tardan mucho para cargar el pxelinux.0
18:59
18:59
y va bajando..
18:59
<irule>
se queda espèrando y no carga o carga despues de una larga espera?
18:59
<marce_gal>
pero muy lento.. y cuando llega al default dice: Could not find kernel image: linux
19:00
<irule>
ok mira ahi va
19:01
<marce_gal>
ok
19:02
<irule>
entra como root y escribe: " cd /tftpboot/ ; ls -la " solo lo de adentro de las comillas y sin las comillas, esos son los nombres correctos y los tienes que ajustar en donde veas nombres similares en /etc/dhcpd.conf del servidor, el problema es simplemente que el nombre de la configuracion es diferente que el nombre real de los archivos que quieres que cargue
19:03
erp, si ajustaste el /etc/dhcpd.conf.sample? ahi viene el ejemplo, para ponerle bien los detalles
19:03
saludos, ya me corren jeje
19:03
<marce_gal>
ya hice todo eso...

i have a debian server with etch
21:11
with ltsp programs installed
21:11
the clients can load the file pxelinux.0
21:11
but can't load the kernel
21:12
they said: Loading pxelinux.cfg: 01-00-40.....
21:12
untill loading pxelinux.cfg: default
21:13
Could not find kernel image: linux
21:13
boot:
21:13
and nothings more happens
21:13
<jammcq>
hmm
21:13
what version of ltsp ?
21:13
<Leumas>
i was reading in google
21:13
4-2
21:13
4.2
21:13
<jammcq>
hmm
21:14
<Leumas>
i have the file 01-00-40-d0-6d-87-8c
