vporo, you need to hive it a path ... relative to your chroot ...
04:42
so if you store the file in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/xorg.conf-myconfig, the variable needs to point to "XF86CONFIG_FILE = /etc/xorg.conf-myconfig"

hi
05:03
uhm.
05:06
I have a local ubuntu mirror, my sources list is modified to fetch packages from the local mirror, however, when I run ltsp-build-client it still tries to fetch packages from the internets.
05:06
even If I use the --mirror option
05:08
how do I get ltsp-build-client to fetch packages from my local repo?
05:11
<ogra>
did you set --security-nirror to none ?
05:11
*--security-mirror
05:16
<le_dog>
hmm
05:17

Hey ogra!!
07:47
Was working on ldm2 last night.
07:47
<ogra>
i saw that
07:47
<sbalneav>
Managed to get myself logged in using the new chat-enabled greeter!
07:47
<ogra>
wlaready metioned it in the edubuntu meeting ;)
07:47
<sbalneav>
Oh, cool.
07:47
Meeting still going on?
07:48

yup
07:49
<cyberorg>
hi guys
07:50
check this out http://dev.beryl-project.org/~cyberorg/suse/40/hack-week-and-kiwi-ltsp-project/
07:51
<sbalneav>
Looks cool
07:52
<cyberorg>
hope we can pursuade some hackers to look into it
07:53
<ogra>
as long s you contribute your cod eback to the main tree, all is fine :)
07:54
<sbalneav>
cyberorg: What channel do the kiwi ltsp people hang out in?
07:54
<cyberorg>
ogra: would love to do that, but havent coded a single line so far, I have been able to package your code and got it partially working, real work should now start when real suse hackers get invloved
07:55
<ogra>
cyberorg, i didnt mean *you* should do it :) but if you talk developers into it, tell them to work based on our branch and together with us in here :)
07:56
<cyberorg>
sbalneav: #opensuse-kiwi, but it is only me and fxliberty who helps out with testing, no suse devs involved yet, schaefi implemented many things we requested in kiwi for ltsp
07:56
<sbalneav>
I'll idle there

howdy sir. you're in late for work
09:36
indeed
09:37
<Gadi>
Ive been running errands
09:37
seems my shipping dept's asleep at the wheel...
09:37

09:37
anywho...

hey hey

ogra: does l-b-c work in gutsy?
09:37
<ogra>
l-b-c`
09:37
?
09:38
oh
09:38
<Gadi>
ltsp-build-vlient
09:38
<ogra>
indeed it does
09:38
<Gadi>
er, heh
09:38
I have been too lazy to set up a gutsy box
09:38
<ogra>
i'm just building edubuntu milestone CDs with the latest ltsp :)
09:38
<Gadi>
so I tried just grabbing the ltsp-server deb from gutsy
09:38
<ogra>
so it should better work :)
09:38
<Gadi>
and doing a DIST=gutsy ltsp-build-client
09:38
but it seems to barf on me
09:38
:(
09:38
always in different spots
09:38
<ogra>
never tested that
09:39
<Gadi>
ok
09:39
<ogra>
where does it pull its pakages from ?
09:39
us.u.c ?
09:39
<Gadi>
hmm
09:39
either us
09:39
<ogra>
try using the --mirror option
09:39
<Gadi>
or just archive
09:39
<ogra>
and try with a different mirror
09:39
but no promises
09:39
<Gadi>
ok
09:39
thanks for feeding my lazyness
09:39
:)
09:39
<ogra>
might be that feisty deboostrap simpl doesnt knwo how to build a gutsy bases system
09:40
so you should try to upgarde that as well to gutsy
09:40
<Gadi>
ah, good idea
09:40
let me do that
09:40
<ogra>
i guess it dies very early, right ?
09:40
<Gadi>
not always
09:41
sometimes it dies on dependencies of later package
09:41
s
09:41
<ogra>
does it actually say it builds gutsy in the beginning ?
09:41
<Gadi>
yup
09:41
<ogra>
intresting
09:42
well, neither me nor vagrant tested the --dist option since several releases, its a historic option when we hadnt solved the differences between debian and ubuntu, so you could use --dist sid

<Gadi>
ogra: upgrading debootstrap seems to do it
10:13
<ogra>
good
10:14
hmm, you probably need gutsys nbd-server package as well
10:14
and ltspfs
10:14
<Gadi>
roger that
10:14
:)
10:14
<ogra>
the new package uses options the ld one didnt know
10:14
so it *might* break
10:15
<Gadi>
btw, dont know if you already do this, but you can exclude the /boot dir when making the sqashfs (to save a few bytes)
10:15
<ogra>
i can exclude a lot :)
10:15
will do that if i go more into details
10:16
cdrom, tmp, proc, sys probably dev .... boot home ...
10:16
<Gadi>
well, those are all empty dirs anyway, no?
10:16
<ogra>
i'll go over that later for now the basic functionallity has to work
10:16
must not be ...
10:16
i.e. i have a cdrom mounted if i run ltsp-build-client in the installer
10:17
that produces a beautiful 900M image :)
10:17* Gadi rolls eyes
10:17
<Gadi>
:)
10:17
<ogra>
instead if the 120 we have :)
10:17
<Gadi>
the rest are empty, tho
10:17
and prolly needed as mountpoints
10:17
<ogra>
wel, everyting where you *could* have something mounted should be excluded automatically
10:18
<Gadi>
fair enough
10:18
<ogra>
one essential thing i still have to solve is ltsp-update-kernels not deleting NBDROOTD
10:18
err
10:18
NBDPORT, sorry
10:19
it breaks with multiple chroots/images atm
10:19
<Gadi>
i thought ltsp-update-image takes care of everything
10:19
even the kernels
10:19
no?
10:19
<ogra>
and ltsp-update.image needs more error checking, its still all a quick hack i ave to fix over time
10:20
no, ltsp-update-image only builds the image and copies it in place
10:20
<Gadi>
ah
10:20
<ogra>
it does everything thats needed for the image handling, but nothing beyond that
10:20
<Gadi>
aptly names ;)
10:20
er, named
10:20
<ogra>
i.e. updating inetd.conf if nbdrootd isnt there yet
10:20
<Gadi>
i cant type today

So what's the most fun you guys have been able to come up with to mess with client displays
10:48
I'm fond of the export DISPLAY= trick with a little gqview hackery
10:51
Ah well. So how about DNS - I want to set up DNS so that I'll have username.internal.domain.tld, and I'd like this to happen dynamically when a user logs in. Anyone know if this can be done?

Hi :D
11:41
this computer stop the boot and only say

<edgarin>
Top of ramdisk is 0x077E000
11:41
Ramdisk at 0x076A8000, size 0x00138000
11:41
Uncompresing Linux...Ok, booting the kernel
11:45
<gvy>
edgarin, is the kernel home-built?
11:45
like no vga console support
11:45
<edgarin>
but this computer are working ago 1 year with ltsp
11:46
<gvy>
especially if it seems to actually boot further (blinks with hdd, replies to pings, etc)
11:46
<edgarin>
and today say this message
11:46
<gvy>
one or all?
11:46
<edgarin>
one
11:46
<gvy>
try to vacuum it (i mean, clean out the dust)
11:46
then check with memtest86 (it's available on floppy/as iso)
11:46
memtest86.com
11:46
or in your distro
11:47
<edgarin>
ok

4 hours is usually enough

Is possible install Beryl in a computer ltsp with a Nvidia card?
12:04
<ogra>
edgarin, ubuntu gutsy's (7.10) ltsp will support compiz by default if the HW is capable
12:04
<edgarin>
cool!!
12:05
<ogra>
its a beauty on i810 based systems
12:05
<edgarin>
Is fantastic!
12:05
<ogra>
we dont ship the restricted drivers by default in ubuntu ltsp though (they eat up 15M extra ram) so a bit manual work is required to get nvidia cards running properly
12:08cyberorg has quit IRC
12:09cyberorg has joined #ltsp
12:10
<gvy>
we do ship nvidia. :)
12:10
nvidia-legacy's available too
12:11
<ogra>
well, its available in ubuntu as well, but we dont install it by default since the volatile kernel directory has to be mounted in ram .... that means 15M extra ram you waste on all clients
12:11
<gvy>
like, it's moronic to pretend to be better just laying the same burden for those cards on the user with added inconvenience of self-assistance
12:11
<ogra>
regardless if they have nividia cards (rare case) or not
12:11
<gvy>
hm, we just do same old nfsroot
12:12
<ogra>
ltsp as well (at least until next release)
12:12
<gvy>
ogra, what's the point of the dir?
12:13
<ogra>
faster loading ? no idea i'd have to ask our kernl team, i only know that there was an upstream request to handle it like that
12:13
<gvy>
hm
12:13
<ogra>
in any case thats the way its handled by the ubuntu package, i wont change that :)
12:13* gvy will hopefully ask around or google
12:14
<gvy>
well, don't fix what ain't broken as they say :)
12:14
<edgarin>
the cards ATI use a restricted drive?
12:14
<ogra>
its two commads to install it and nvidia clients are rahter not a common thin client case
12:15
<gvy>
edgarin, only newest ones (Xxxx)
12:15
upto 9600 you can do with "ati"
12:15
<ogra>
they can either use a free one or a restircted one for the newer models
12:15
<gvy>
ogra, yup
12:15
<edgarin>
ahh ok
12:15
<gvy>
sorry, moving off the office...
12:15
ogra, glad to see ya every time :-)
12:15
(guess it's harder to say vice versa)
12:15

:)
12:16
nah, i like to see you :)

I am having problems with the Thin CXlient Manager. When I click on Screen View I get a message that xv11vnc is not installed on the client. How do I do that?
13:04etyack has joined #ltsp
13:05
<Gadi>
try: sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install x11vnc
13:05
<skipper>
From a client terminal? I already did this on the server.
13:05
<Gadi>
actually, looks like it is in universe
13:06
<mopey>
skipper, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=406220&highlight=edubuntu&page=2
13:06
<Gadi>
you will need to add universe to /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/apt/sources.list
13:06
ah, thx mopey
13:11
<skipper>
Thx guys, I'll try it.

Tried to install x11vnc for a client by entering "chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install x11vnc". Got error - "Can't find ..."
13:30
<cliebow>
did you check ogra's notes on installing x11vnc?
13:31
<skipper>
no, where is that?
13:31
<Gadi>
skipper: you need to add the universe repo to the chroot
13:31
edit: /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/apt/sources.list
13:31
add universe to the end of the first line
13:31
<skipper>
I copied that information from the server's sources.list file
13:31
<Gadi>
then: sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get update
13:32
then: sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install x11vnc

<Gadi>
indeed
13:40
<cliebow>
ogra have a blog describing ?
13:41skipper has joined #ltsp
13:41
<skipper>
So I installed x11vnc, now how do I get it running for the clients?
13:43ogra has quit IRC
13:44
<cliebow>
skipper, if it is the chroot it Is available to the clients
13:44
err..on the clients..
13:44
i use a python script..some use tcm
13:47
<mopey>
you have to have it start up with an rc script I think
13:48ltspNtraining has joined #ltsp
13:48
<mopey>
try putting this: x11vnc -display :6 -forever -loop -shared & on the last line in /opt/ltsp/etc/rc.local
13:49
and move the K99rc.local to S99rc.local in /etc/rc2.d (in the chroot.. /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc2.d/)
13:49bobby_C has joined #ltsp

<ltspNtraining>
greetings all.
13:50
<mopey>
Problem is, this doesn't require a password, so any of your users can vnc into any of the other users screens.
13:51
So, you probably want to enable one. But it might take some tweaking to get the vnc manager to work, which is what you wanted in the first place.
13:51
<ltspNtraining>
has anyone ever managed to setup an thin client with three monitors?
13:51
<mopey>
err, the thin Client manager

I have tried everthing I was told to do, except I could not move the K99rc.local to S99rc.local because there wasn't one to move. Now how do I get x11vnc to run?
14:10skipper_ has quit IRC
14:11
<skipper>
No I haven't
14:12
I inadvertantly had two windows open
14:12
<Gadi>
try adding: RCFILE_01=/etc/init.d/rc.local
14:12
to lts.conf
14:13
and make sure you: chmod 755 /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/init.d/rc.local
14:14
this should get u going mopey's way
14:15dan__t has left #ltsp
14:15
<Gadi>
i would prolly add a password to vnc, or alternatively launch it through ssh with ssh keys exchanged
14:15
but, this will get u going
14:16
<skipper>
I hate to sound so newish, but where is lts.conf?
14:16
<Gadi>
/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf
14:16
<mopey>
/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf
14:16
ahh, beat me to it.

What does that "RCFILE_01=..." do in the lts.conf file?
14:23
<Gadi>
it should tell the client to run that script on boot
14:24
<skipper>
I see, if my server is AMD64 and my clients are i386, will there be any problems?

bbiab
14:27
<skipper>
was that comment aimed at me? Then please explain what "bbiab" means?
14:28
<mopey>
cliebow, I think so... Java is weird.
14:28
<ogra>
cliebow: whats odd about that ?
14:28
<cliebow>
i know..sometimes search finds it sometimes not
14:29
<mopey>
I think java is weird since jdk is always a different version from jre, and I always seem to have java dependency issues, but maybe that's just me.
14:29
<sbalneav>
skipper: bbiab stands for "be back in a bit"
14:29
<skipper>
got it
14:30

mopey: in ubuntu ?
14:30
<mopey>
not with feisty :)
14:30

ive installed with apt-get before..but dont seem to fine the right pkg this time
14:31
ogra:are you blogging your improvements anywhere?
14:31

sun-java6-jre or sun-java6-plugin i guess :)
14:31

ltsp-server does that in its postinst
14:33
or -standalone, cant remember
14:33
<cliebow>
apt-cache search java|grep sun brings up nada
14:33
<ogra>
multiverse enabled ?
14:34
<cliebow>
ill double check
14:34
<ogra>
you can also do apt-cache search java sun btw :) save teh grep
14:34
<Q-FUNK>
ogra: no sir. not on debian, at least. it's still marked as disabled.
14:34
<ogra>
marked as disabled ???
14:34
<Q-FUNK>
tftpd-hpa disabled in /etc/default/tftpd-hpa
14:34
<ogra>
whaerem, how ?
14:34
thats right
14:35
tftpd breaks booting if you run it standalone :)
14:35
its run from ietd
14:35
*inetd
14:35
<cliebow>
seems enabled..and queried with apt-get update..
14:36
<Q-FUNK>
ogra: ok, inetd indeed has it.
14:37
<ogra>
:)
14:37
nfs, inetd and dhcp are autoconfigured in ltsp5 .... dhcp autoconfig is disabled in debian iirc but the rest should work

<Q-FUNK>
ok, debian has incorrect paths in the default dhcpd.conf sample
14:54
the pxe and nbi are in /opt/ltsp/i386/boot
14:55
the defaults show something completely different

ok, it seems that the sample dhcpd.conf is the problem. the sample dnsmasq config worked better
15:16
well, it fetches the kernel, but then the screen turns blakc during kernel bootup and it never recovers
15:17
<cliebow>
maybe you'll have to comment quiet splash in pxelinux.0?
15:17
<Q-FUNK>
etherboot
15:18
<mopey>
what does it say when your press ctrl+alt+f1? Anything?
15:18
<Q-FUNK>
I'm not on pxe here
15:18
nothing
15:18
nothing on vcons1
15:19
<cliebow>
k..perhaps pastebot your dhcpd.conf? ..iso you are using nbi.img?
15:20
<Q-FUNK>
i'm guessing that the default rez in the boot kernel is something that my monitor doesn't like
15:21
yup, nbi.img and it loads
15:22
<cliebow>
i must defer to ogra..
15:23
<mopey>
This might be a crappy solution, but you could change your chrooted xorg to include a good default resolution.
15:23
<Q-FUNK>
I see the "loading /ltsp/i386/nbi.img" and the the begining of the kernel's boot messages right after, it appears that it tries to switch monitor resolution and that's when the screen goes black.
15:24
<cliebow>
mopey: so he hasnt gotten to that point
15:25
<mopey>
right.
15:25
<cliebow>
try another monitor and/or box?
15:26
good luck..im going for a swim..
15:26
<ogra>
cliebow: and i must defer to vagrant :) i have no clue abotu teh debian kernel and as far as i know teh ubuntu nbi image works
15:26
<Q-FUNK>
the monitor itself works with that client hardware as a regular desktop. i have to assume that the ltsp boot kernel is the issue.
15:27
<ogra>
Q-FUNK: definately a framebuffer issue ...
15:27
<cliebow>
Q-FUNK: i could zip my kernel and put it up if it will help?
15:27
<ogra>
how do you boot your clients, floppy or bootrom ?
15:28
<Q-FUNK>
ogra: bootrom.
15:28
<ogra>
ah, crap i was hoping floppy ...
15:29
<Q-FUNK>
:)
15:29
<cliebow>
ogra:what were you thinking?
15:29
<ogra>
rom-o-matic defaults to PXE emulation nowadays ... so an etherboot floppie would have been teh easiest
15:29
etherboot itself is a lot harder to debug ..
15:30
<cliebow>
heh i still se 5.0.11
15:30
<ogra>
ltsp ?

<Q-FUNK>
ogra: where are the kernel boot options configured in ltsp?
15:34
no lilo or grub, but there must be a place where boot options get defined before building the nbi and pxe images?
15:34
<ogra>
well in pxelinux.cfg/default :)
15:34
<cliebow>
Q-FUNK, i always used option 128 and 129 to tell the kernel stuff like what nic
15:35
<ogra>
i dont think we configure any for mknbi during teh etherboot image generation
15:35
<Q-FUNK>
cliebow: 128 and 129??
15:35
<ogra>
dchp options to hand over kernel commandline variables
15:35
<Q-FUNK>
dhcp option 128 and 129?
15:35
<cliebow>
it may be old stuff..
15:36
<Q-FUNK>
is that documented anywhere?
15:36
<cliebow>
i can look at wiki.ltsp.org

ok, x configured itself according to the host hardware
15:39
so it might well be X
15:40
<ogra>
well Xconfigures itself quite late in teh bootprocess
15:40
<cliebow>
you can watch your packets with ethereal see if problem is after the nfs mount
15:40

(second last initscript)

15:44
<Q-FUNK>
ogra: I said that I see the kernel being loaded and the first few lines of boot messages, but then it tries to switch fb rez and the screen goes blank
15:45

yeah, thats what i dont undrestand ...
15:45
because there is nothing that should chage your framebuffer ...

ok
15:47
How does one become a member of that tree?
15:47

so ping either of us if you got something :)
15:47

15:49
<ogra>
thats what you should do anyway
15:49
debian has its own mainline and ubuntu has distro specific branches
15:49
<mistik1>
ok, That's what i've done locally
15:49

s/distro/release/
15:50
beyond that we try to keep feature development in its own branches
15:50
<mistik1>
*nod*
15:50
<ogra>
i.e. ldm2 is developed in two branches of scott and me ... if we'Re done we'll merge all of it into mainline
15:51
but keep teh old branch around ... in case someone wants to merge his own ltsp :)
15:51
... out of different feature brnches

Can anyone tell me if using a generic Linux kernel (for compatibility with a mini-itx EPIA 800 (VIA cpu)) on an LTSP server (ubuntu) would affect, at all, thin clients booting?
17:11
I'm still learning the diff between what uses the chroot env. and the actual system stuff on thinclients

mistik1, it seems so...i have two identical hardware thinclients - one boots and one does not. verified all BIOS settings, PXE is strange in that it required the "server-identifier" parameter for it to find the LTSP server. There was some weirdnesses going on so I'm just re-loading ubuntu 7.04 now and starting from scratch

i guess bad weather ... i got the impression it was the chicago side ...
