timma: what problem are you having?
I am dumb on using ltsp, but I installed syslinux and run ltspcfg. Also, set the client to boot order to the nic (LANDesk which uses PXE). But I how no respone on the client except
"DHCP MAC ADDR ~~~" "BOOTP...."
no need to install syslinux
nope. all of the pxe stuff you need is included in the ltsp-kernel package
pxe booting should be VERY simple to set up
what distro are you using?
Debian 4 stable.
ok, where are you seeing 'BOOTP' ?
on the client on booting it up atfer post
ok, Landesk actually supports 4 different boot methods. PXE is just one of them. Are you sure you have the Landesk rom configured for PXE ?
Actually I all I did was go into the bios and changed the boot order, nothing else.
landesk is the 3com rom, right?
ok, I think you need to hit a key, maybe Ctrl-C right after POST
to get into the Landesk config screen
|15:48||ltspbot has quit IRC|
is PXE-M00 a code?
sounds like it, but I don't know what the codes mean. If you are getting that, at least it tells us that you are using PXE
I tried Ctrl-C and even Ctrl-Alt-B but no response
ok, but are you getting a PXE-M00 error ?
ok, it's prolly configured for PXE. Ok, do you have dhcpd setup ?
|15:52||muh2000 has quit IRC|
|15:53||Q-FUNK has quit IRC|
yes, but I think my config is wrong http://rafb.net/p/idO4lO23.html
Oh, my tftpboot is on the root not in the /opt/i386/ltsp folder...
you are using Debian, so you'll need to add a 'next-server' entry to your dhcpd.conf file
take a look at this document:
|15:58||Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp|
any a specific order?
and just "next-server 192.168.0.254"?
timma: the ltsp-server and ltsp-utils packages are incompatible ... make sure not to use them both.
timma: put the line up near the top of the dhcpd.conf file
how do I restart dhcpd?
something like: /etc/init.d/dhcpd-server restart
but... I might have the filename not completely correct
go look in /etc/init.d for the script name
oh, that's okay I just forgot about the /etc/init.d part
it will not restart though line 51 or 52 is giving an issue
vagrantc: what do I need to do uninstall both then reinstall ltsp-server. (How do I configure it then?)
forgot a bracket.
timma: if you only installed the packages, you should be fine. if you ran ltsp-build-client and then ltspadmin, you may have problems.
i really wish i had put that conflicts in sooner
vagrantc I did not run ltsp-build-client, just ltspcfg and ltspadmin
timma: ok. you'll use ltsp 4.2 then
jammcq: would you look at http://rafb.net/p/RYVozy10.html
vagrantc do you mean instead of ltsp 5? I knew that. I am not good with linux administration yet and want to stay with Debian stable. Later I do want to use 5.
jammcq it says server not found
the server ip is 192.168.0.167
timma: well, LTSP 5 is in debian etch/stable ... it's the ltsp-server package
?! since when?
since etch released.
and before ...
so, me using the ltsp-utils makes it 4.2?
timma, what did you set next-server to ?
but your server IP address isn't that
timma: yes, ltsp-utils installs 4.2
maybe I should read the line below
on the page you gave
|16:18||greg_g has left #ltsp|
Now it is "PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File Not found" http://rafb.net/p/W1KnW216.html
I know that the tftpboot folder is on / Shouldn't it be in the /opt/ltsp/i386/ folder?
do this: ls -l /tftpboot/lts
it has ltsp-1 ltsp-2
ok, edit your dhcpd.conf file
change the 'filename' entry to:
|16:26||otavio__ has quit IRC|
|16:26||otavio has joined #ltsp|
okay, I was being dumb I thought from reading the docs (v4.1) that just needed what I had.
you may need to adjust your /etc/inetd.conf file too
which tftpd did you install ?
(debian has 3)
dpkg -l *tftp* | egrep ^ii
I checked synaptic and it is not tftpd. tftp-hpa version 0.43-1.1
tftp-hpa or tftpd-hpa ?
|16:33||mikkel has quit IRC|
ok, in your inetd.conf file, see how the 'tftp' line ends with '/var/lib/tftpboot' ?
you either need to change that, or move your kernels to /var/lib/tftpboot
to be more compatible with LTSP-5, which you might want to upgrade to, I'd suggest moving your kernel.
try: mv /tftpboot/lts /var/lib/tftpboot
if it's all the same filesystem, that should succeed
will the /tftpboot/lts change its contents with a new kernel on debian?
no, if you install a new ltsp kernel, it won't put it in the right place, but it's easy to move it
and we aren't releasing new kernels very often for ltsp-4.2
|16:40||muh2000 has joined #ltsp|
would doing this "mkdir /var/lib/tftpboot/ltp" then "ln -s /tftpboot/lts /var/lib/tftpboot/lts" be okay or am I thinking wrong? (for theory?)
it should work, if you DON'T do the mkdir
|16:43||Q-FUNK has quit IRC|
some of the tftp servers are fussy about symlinks.
yep, I think the symlink did not work or do I need restart tftp?
|16:47||otavio has quit IRC|
|16:47||otavio has joined #ltsp|
I removed the symlink and then moved the folder, it still does not work.
restart your inetd ...
invoke-rc.d openbsd-inetd restart
he hasn't changed inetd.conf
so he shouldn't need to restart it
have you restarted dhcpd since changing the 'filename' entry?
|16:48||ccherret1 has joined #ltsp|
yes I restarted both just now.
but the same message
ok, do this: ls -lR /var/lib/tftpboot
and paste that to the pastebot
and... do this:
grep filename /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
ls -lR /var/lib/tftpboot
and what's your 'filename' set to?
oh, I forgot I changed the filename when I first had this error
|16:54||ccherret2 has joined #ltsp|
now it is /lts/188.8.131.52-ltsp-1/pxelinux.0
ok, restart dhcpd, and it should work
TFTP and periods being added
I need to change it in conf
|16:56||otavio has quit IRC|
|16:56||otavio has joined #ltsp|
oh, sorry, was not thinking right.
"PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout." is printed on two lines
|16:59||ccherrett has quit IRC|
was it a PXE-E32 before? or did that just start?
no. it just started
it was a file not found before
do this: netstat -anp | grep ":67 "
do this: netstat -anp | grep ":60 "
do this: netstat -anp | grep ":69 "
THAT"s the one you want to run
udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:69 0.0.0.0:* 4341/inetd
udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:69 0.0.0.0:* 4199/in.tftpd
seems about right
dunno why you'd be getting a timeout now.
|17:05||ccherret1 has quit IRC|
paste your latest dhcpd.conf file to the pastebot
|17:06||otavio has quit IRC|
|17:06||otavio has joined #ltsp|
you've got other things in dhcpd.conf pointing to .254. You'll need to change those to .167
but that shouldn't be causing your current problem
how do I check to see if my nic is full or half ?
at this point, you can't, and it doesn't matter
that's not causing your problem

hello all: can samba handle non-flat /homes? can the smb.conf Global Option "template homedir =" be used to allow users to log in to their home dir if /home isn't flat? I.e if I have /home/groupa and /home/groupb/ can I use smb.conf to make sure that users end up logging into /home/groupa/bob or /home/groupb/janet?
john_s: sounds like a question for the #samba channel, eh?
I agree, I have it there too they are a little sleepy so I hoped one of the LTSP folks had been here before

3. TFTP and DHCP/BOOTP services are running on different machines, but the next-server (066) option was not specified
jammcq could the card be incompatible with TFTP?
jammcq should I reparition the hdd and then install grub and copy /var/lib/tftpboot/lts/vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-ltsp-1
vagrantc do you have an idea, should I boot locally and how?

|18:02||john_s has left #ltsp|
ignore that question, i am numb
timma: maybe your PXE client isn't respecting next-server
timma: you could try one of the boot floppies
vagrantc: "bootfloppy" is http://etherboot.anadex.de or ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP/Universal_boot_floppy
this would at least test if it does work.

vagrantc I accidentally rm /dev/fd0, but the floppy image you gave work on booting to ltsp. But why would that work? the client's pxe does not work right?
timma: sounds like it
timma: or your DHCP is configured to give etherboot a different file
some PXE implementations are broken.

vagrantc so now that this works, about ltsp 5. is ltsp-server(-standalone) version 0.99debian11 ltsp 5?
timma: basically, yes. it's missing a few features. if you need them there's backports available
vagrantc: "debian" is is a GNU/Linux based operating system that makes an excellent LTSP server. You can find it at http://www.debian.org. for information about LTSP on debian see http://wiki.debian.org/LTSP

when I first did that command two hours ago I kept the results
so did you run the command again, or did you keep looking at the old results ?

slow or otherwise

joebob777as7: I haven't tried this (I use an LTSP server under Kubuntu 6.10 with one Nic on a LAN router) but it may help as thought starters to redirect to eth1: "By default, DHCP runs on the first ethernet device on your machine (generally eth0). If you would like to have DHCP run on a different device you must specify it when you start the DHCP server /usr/sbin/dhcpd eth1" and "added eth1 to the end of the dhcpd command to tell it only to listen for requests
on my eth1 interface, $ dhcpd eth1", or try this (http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/LTSP_Server). good luck!
