<dem>
would be the best way to run/test ldm (greeter) on one machine
09:25
i guess i'm slow today
09:26
but i can't figure out how get it to run in Xnest for testing, what not
09:28
it seams like everything (every path is hard coded)
09:29
<sbalneav>
yup
09:29
<dem>
i got everything i need for loadbalancing i just need to integrate it with ldm/greeter now
09:29
but testing is proving to be a real pita
09:32greg_g has joined #ltsp
09:33
<jammcq>
is your load balancing going to depend on LDM ?
09:34
<dem>
in this itteration, yeah
09:34sbalneav has quit IRC
09:36
<dem>
the plan/idea is to have ldm pool a list of servers (in parallel) at a fixed (it can be set by the admin) inteval
09:36
so it'll always know the "best" server
09:36
and as soon as the user types his password and presses enter, it'll just go to the best last server
09:37
and all that's done, i just haven't hooked it up to ldm yet
09:38
the other solution i was thinking of before is to try to find the best server before starting the x-server, but if it sits there at a login prompt for a day or so
09:38
it really dosen't do anything for it
09:38
<jammcq>

Hello everyone. In the past I have read that PXE booting conflicts with the RIS/WDS services on Windows Server and the only way to avoid this is was boot from an etherboot(?) floppy or a modified PXE. Is this still the case? Is it possible to get the PXE boot to offer a menu of options to choose between continuing with RIS/WDS or LTSP? I have started looking into this but I thought I'd pose the question in case anyone k
10:13mistik1 has joined #ltsp

<dem>
in the AD you can tell diffrent clients (mac based) to use a diffrent tftp server
10:19
all our thin clients in one group and they get diffrent dhcp paramters values from the other machines
10:21
<lamaslany>
I'm trying to find a way to dual-purpose an existing set of Windows PCs - essentially giving the user the choice at runtime whether they want to boot Windows or LTSP. We're a pretty Microsoft-centric organisation which means if it comes to a choice they'd rather have Windows.

10:21
<lamaslany>
I did consider a script to alter the reservations
10:22
But triggering the script would involve a degree of manual intervention that most of our users wouldn't be interested in.
10:22
<dem>
yeah, look at the above link
10:22
<lamaslany>
Okay; thanks. I'm sure I'll be back... ;)
10:23
<dem>
there's other ways i've seen people do

hi
18:06
question regarding local devices
18:07
I have a ltsp 5* with ubuntu, I can plug an usb key in the term, the user gets his key mounted though fuse, works great
18:07
but how can I unmount properly the usb device ?
18:07
so to prevent data lost because the buffers are not flushed, things like that ?
18:18
<cliebow>
yhan: i think they are fllushed every two seconds
18:21
by default

HEY!!!! long time no see
19:50
<vagrantc>
jammcq: any other locals? i know there's a lot of LTSP action in brasil
19:51
<jammcq>
well, as for "friends of LTSP", we have mfdutra
19:52
and his whole gang of developers working at Propus
19:52
but there's lots and lots of users of LTSP down here
19:52
a project in Parana,BR where they are deploying 2,000 schools with ltsp labs in them
19:54
<mfdutra>
most telecentros in brazil that run linux are using ltsp
19:54
telecentros = public places for internet access
19:54
<vagrantc>
yeah.
19:54
<mfdutra>
specially in poor areas of the big cities
19:54
<jammcq>
mfdutra: any idea how many there are now?
19:54
<vagrantc>
i know at least one person who works on the telecentros
19:54
<mfdutra>
I don't, because it's not centralized
19:54
many organizations have telecentros, as well the governments
19:55
both locals and federal
19:55
<jammcq>
a few years ago, I heard there were 6,000 telecentros
19:55
<mfdutra>
probably more now
19:55
I don't really know
19:55
there are many telecentros running windows too
19:55
m$ sponsors some of them
19:55
sponsor = free license
