03:04
<ogra>
Bhaskar1, if the distro is debian based you can just use the ubuntu or debian packages
03:04
<MoL0ToV>
Bhaskar1, i'm a lamer in LTSP
03:04
but i can help to integrate into gentoo (my preferred distro)
03:05

03:05
<ogra>
??
03:05

03:06
<Bhaskar1>

<MoL0ToV>
ogra, on a general Xorg client
03:08
<ogra>
Bhaskar1, so you first installed th etarball and then you used apt-get install ltsp-server and ltsp-build-client ?
03:08

<ogra>
MoL0ToV, it works differently in the two ltsp versions ...

03:11
<ogra>

03:11
<MoL0ToV>

03:12

09:21
i am running ltsp in opensuse 10.2 is there a better os to use?

<sbalneav>
You've already made the right choice in running Linux. After that, it's just how much window dressing you want :)
09:22
A lot of us love Ubuntu, and run it. But any choice is a good one.
09:22
<cliebow__>
jammcq: you around?i'm bumping one school to 4.2 but the chroot seems awful empty..
09:22
<jammcq>
cliebow__: yeah, I'm here
09:22
<lordbf1>
thanks guys!
09:22
<cliebow__>
i used ltsp-utils 0.25
09:23
<jammcq>
I think that's the latest
09:23
<cliebow__>
but /opt/ltsp/i386/etc seems incomplete..
09:23
no /etc/version for instance
09:23
i see i believe all packsages in pkg_cache
09:23
<jammcq>
cliebow__: look in /etc/ltsp.conf, see what LTSP_DIR is set to
09:24
<cliebow__>
k
09:24
ahh /opt/ltsp-4.2
09:24
<jammcq>
yeah, you must have had a previous version in /opt/ltsp
09:25
<cliebow__>
yes i did..ltsp-4.2 looks fine
09:25
<jammcq>
our "upgrade path" is really a "allow multiple versions"
09:25
so, either change your 'root-path' to point to /opt/ltsp-4.2/i386, or blow away the old /opt/ltsp, and rename /opt/ltsp-4.2 to /opt/ltsp
09:26
<cliebow__>
ok.. i can adjust that alright..i move my 4.0 to /opt/ltsp/i386-4.0 and ran ltsp-utilsi used the defaults
09:26
all set then..
09:26
ill give that whirl

OT: anybody here can help me with RHEL ?
14:29
to be exactly: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 3)
14:36
<jammcq>
mhterres: how about you tell us what kind of problem you are having with RHEL4 ?
14:37
<mhterres>
hmmm, I need to install the mysql headers to compile PHP with mysql support and I don't know where can I found the packages and how to do that :-)
14:38
<jammcq>
do you have rhn support ?
14:38
<mhterres>
You know that I'm a Debian/Ubuntu user, so it is strange for me :-)
14:38
yep
14:38
but I don't want to ask them for this kind of help
14:38
it is too basic :-)
14:38
<jammcq>
ok, right
14:38
but you should be able to do this:
14:38
up2date --showall -l | grep mysql
14:39
once you find the name of the package, you can do:
14:39
up2date --dry-run --install my_package_name
14:39
and if it looks ok, try again, without the --dry-run
14:40
<mhterres>
hmmm, great :-)
14:41
I imagine that, the problem is that our client can't find the subscription code for this server :-/
14:41
<jammcq>
oh, then yer screwed
14:41
<mhterres>
So I was thinking in install the mysql package version that came in CD
14:41
jammcq, Yeah, I know
14:43
anybody know how can I install the mysql-devel package from the installation CD ?
14:44
<jammcq>
oh
14:44
that's easy
14:44
have you mounted the cd ?
14:44
go find the package you want
14:44
and do: rpm -ivh my_package_name
14:47
<mhterres>
ok, thanks
14:49
They'll put the CD in the server

20:08
<cliebow_>

20:08
<dtrask>

20:08
<cliebow_>

20:11* ogra discovered virtualbox today ...
20:11
<ogra>
an awesome thing ...
20:11
<dtrask>
is it a vm thung?
20:11
thing
20:11
<ogra>
can easily cope with vmware ... but 100% open source
20:11
<dtrask>
easy to setnip?
20:11
setup
20:12
?
20:12
<ogra>
http://www.virtualbox.org/download/1.3.8/
20:12* dtrask is typing like cliebow
20:12
<ogra>
just doubleclick the one you need and let gdebi do the rest ;)
20:12
<dtrask>
very cool
20:12
<cliebow_>
i was just going to say..i'mdoing better than the rest of you
20:12
<ogra>
(expand the termonal window in gdebi, its asking questions)
20:13
*terminal
20:13
<cliebow_>
my bksp key on this ibook is missing so..correcting is a real pain
20:14
<dtrask>
I have a cheap (free) laptop from a local university....Dell C610 with two batteries (got 8.5 hours yesterday)....virgin install of Edubuntu 7.04....and room to play :-)
20:14* jammcq adds 'keyboard' to chucks christmas gift list
20:14
<dtrask>
bringing it to UES instead of my HP behemoth
20:15
<cliebow_>
jammcq: it won't do any good...tome as i get to the d key my brain is doing trask
20:15* jammcq can't imagine not having a real laptop when travelling
20:15
<dtrask>
chuck...is it old mlti one? I have one I can send you...I hoarded them
20:15
<cliebow_>
i ti s a g4
20:15
that we leased
20:16
<dtrask>
aw shucks
20:16
<cliebow_>
which wont take an image
20:17Gadi has left #ltsp
20:17
<cliebow_>
dtrask..i have parts enough here to build a couple more
20:17
<dtrask>
yeah....I lucked into this Dell....my tech was keeping an eye out...it's only a P3, but it flies...dunno why, but it's faster than my HP which is a P4 3ghz
20:18
<cliebow_>
i keep one dell going at home all the time..for 128 meg ram it does ok
20:18
<dtrask>
must be that awesome work everyone did with Feisty....or the generic kernel ;-)
20:19
<cliebow_>
how much memory?
20:19
<dtrask>
512
20:19
<cliebow_>
ahh..that does help
20:19
im fighting to get a 512 for my dansguardian..for like 2 months
20:19
<dtrask>
took Matt's advice and started using the generic kernel....seems to make quite a difference
20:20
<cliebow_>
generic is good
20:21
<dtrask>
I have Ubuntu ultimate edition on my HP...that used genetic by default....and WOW!....what a performance increase
20:21
generic...not genetic ;-)
20:21
<cliebow_>
what the hell is ultimate edition?
20:22tiagovaz has quit IRC

cliebow_, in case someone asks in the future about x11vnc and ubuntu ltsp ... https://wiki.edubuntu.org/InstallX11VncOnLtspClients ;)
20:22
<cliebow_>
Cool..thank you.. ill bookmark that
20:23
<dtrask>
it's a dvd install....loads everything you'd ever want and some you don't....loads all sorts of codecs...etc. And everything works in the end :-)
20:23
<ogra>
it comes up to often ... so i thought i'd wiki it :)
20:23
<dtrask>
good idea
20:23
<ogra>
yeah, libgimmecodec is really cool
20:24
<cliebow_>
thta is great..keep me from putting foot in mouth again
20:24
<ogra>
it makes the codec stuff just work
20:24
restricted-manager is also very cool ...
20:24
<cliebow_>
hahah..who thought of that one?
20:24
<ogra>
the name i think seb128 :)
20:25
<cliebow_>
i just cant keep up..and i monitor this All the time
20:25
<dtrask>
I was pretty happy with it as I didn't have frig around after the install....I had everything and it all worked....even Skype
20:25
<ogra>
yeah
20:26
i wonder if we should write an update-manager hook for ltsp chroots ...
20:26
<dtrask>
anyone looked at Linux mint?.....an Ubuntu derivative....kinda' cool
20:26
<jammcq>
you guys seen linuxmce ?
20:26
<dtrask>
thats an interesting idea
20:26
<jammcq>
http://www.linuxmce.com
20:26* dtrask looks now
20:27
<ogra>
so security updates would get in automatically and upgrades between distros would happen automatically
20:28* jammcq was very excited to hear about the new flavor of ubuntu with only completely free stuff in it
20:28* dtrask thanks jammcq for blowing his whole day tomrrow...has to try linuxmce ;-)
20:28
<jammcq>
:)
20:28
<dberkholz>
i think the better idea about that website is the free tech support on skype
20:28
<ogra>
jammcq, that existst since dapper
20:28
<dberkholz>
jammcq: so was i
20:28
<jammcq>
dtrask: my buddy John Terpstra pointed that out to me
20:28
<cliebow_>
dtrask: i installed linuxmint and talked a bit with the devs
20:29
<ogra>
jammcq, gutsy will just make it launchpad integrated :)
20:29
<dberkholz>
now someone just has to talk ubuntu folks into making the all-free version the default
20:29
<dtrask>
LOL
20:29
<dberkholz>
and having a 'proprietary penguin' as the variant
20:29
<dtrask>
oooh....can we name him Bill?
20:30
<jammcq>
ogra: it sounded like this was something new
20:30
<ogra>
dberkholz, http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Diskless_X_terminal_with_read-only_root thats looks nearly like ltsp5 ... if you wrap it in plugins for ltsp-build-client it would be perfect ;)
20:30
<jammcq>
something to do with gnusense
20:31
<dtrask>
jammcq, I agree....I saw the announcement too
20:31
<dberkholz>
ogra: yep, that's the goal. i already know how to do a manual setup..
20:31
manual setups aren't really interesting though, nor are unconfigurable, hardcoded, hard to change scripts
20:31
i need to find a week to set aside for this
20:31ogra_ has joined #ltsp

20:33
<ogra>

20:33
dberkholz, nope
20:33
<dberkholz>
01:30 < dberkholz> ogra: yep, that's the goal. i already know how to do a manual setup..
