Can anybody help with a missing video driver question
|01:30||ari_stress2 has quit IRC|
Is there a channel for LTSP 4.x?
jakob__: yer on it.
OK I need to add an xorg video driver to my ltsp4 xorg-server. Is there an easy way to do this, maybe some prebuild drivers for ltsp-4
What I need is a s3 or via driver

When I boot my thin client (3 different types) they all end up using the vesa driver.
|01:51||zodma1 is now known as zodman|
Is there somewhere a repository of prebuild xorg video drivers for LTSP 4?
|02:20||zodman has quit IRC|
jakob__, ugh -- ltsp4 is very weird stuff :(
if at all possible, move off onto 5
|02:20||* gvy went so far as hiring a person and adapting ltsp5 for ALT Linux|
There are certain things I havn't solved regarding LTSP 5. We use kde (kubuntu) the login screen looks very wierd, but first of all the problem is that most of the clients arent fast enough to handle the ssh compresshion
jakob__, well you can try altlinux
we prepared the port in a way so older clients wouldn't suffer that much
in particular, ssh isn't use

altWhat is altlinux?
gvy, Where du I find it? Hopefully you don't meen switching distro?
jakob__, ftp://ftp.altlinux.org/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/4.0; depends on your setup and troubles
I was thinking rippnig the LTSP 4.2 tree. Is that possible
I once went there to replace some driver but finding a compatible (re options) build was too hard
and ltsp4 was doomed here anyways. :)
OK, so I'm left with rebuilding from the lbe
have you got something that's not supported by already present drivers?
ugh, both can be tricky :( didn't fiddle with both since xorg's properly maintained in alt...
older drivers like those in fc4 or what ltsp4.2 was based on could have troubles though
s3 trio64 was rather broken in xfree86 4.x/xorg so far
my clients are HP T5135 the specs say via S3
jakob__, gutsy has a kde theme for ldm and the option to switch off compression (and boots as fast as 4.2)
oh, and ldm is in C now ... way faster ...
we worked pertty colse with Riddell and the other kubuntu guys to get kde support rocking over the next two releases (full sound and localdev integration for example)
ogra, morning :)
jakob__, indeed :)
|03:27||iMav has joined #ltsp|
Last I tried (feisty) sound worked out of the box
well, kmix has its probs
|03:27||iMav has left #ltsp|
How about the driver question?
it doesnt see the virtual alsa card
and since kde doesnt use gnome-vfs and doesnt monitor /mdeia either, you dont get icons on the desktop for mounted usb keys
beyond that and a missing kde theme for ldm all was fine though
Does gustu-kubuntu get USB keys right (very important)
feisty already did

ogra, What would you say is the maturety-state of kubuntu LTSP-5 on Gusty, is it usable as is.
|03:32||ari_stress has joined #ltsp|
By the way is Gusty released?
it will release in october
but we released a new milestone yesterday
OK I guess that anwers my prior question too :-)
Is the plan to have LTSP-5 mature on release?
kmix and stuff like that?
ktsp5 is mature and the latest upstream release since edgy
i know Riddell was working on getting kmix fixed
ktsp will that be an actual package?
the missing desktop icons arent fixed yet, i'll probably add a small wrokaround to the mounter script though
Can't it be done like LTSP 4, usnig udev and fuse
there might be a ldm-qt at some point, the new ldm makes that easily possible
it is done that way
in fact we use the latest ltspfs (ltsp 4 isnt develped since 2 years anymore)
Why isn't it working on LTSP-5 then? works fine on LTSP-4
because we want to implement it properly
Fair enough :-)
the way it worked in 4.x was a hack
i'll add that hack back and add an option for lts.conf in gutsy i think, so kde people can enable it
for gutsy+1 we'll use hal and all problems will go away magically
(at least the ones with the differnt UIs)
I might want to help out at some point, just not right now.

hi, i am trying to build a network boot image (with cramfs) that starts a simple web browser and therefore needs no terminal server, only dhcp + tftp. do you know projects like this (customizing ltsp may be possible, but i assume it is way to big) ?
on ubuntu you would run ltsp-build-client --kiosk
ogrs: so this exists already. thanks.
that removes the ltsp login manager and various other bits from the ltsp tree and installs firefox and a window manager in the client environbment instead
it could need a lot improvement though ;)
ogra: that is *exactly* what i need, thanks
ogra: why a window manager ?
its pretty much the example at the bottom of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HowtoWriteLTSP5Pluginsn what we use
lol, firefox wont get the right screen dimensions to run fullscreen if there is no WM
you can start it with --fulscreen ... but then it wont cover the whole screen in most cases
ogra: years ago i had opera on some clients w/o a window manager
it always got it
well, you can use opera if you want :)
i cant put it in an uubuntu ltsp defaulzt install since we dont have it in the main archive ... but installing stuff in a chroot is trivial ...
thats the whole point of ltsp5 ;)
okay i am on debian etch now
so i assume that is not right
|04:39||* lol goes booting feisty|
debian etch should have a similar version of ltsp5 as ubuntu edgy had
there are backports of the feisty version as well somewhere
ogra: "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
i think at the bottom of the page is a link
many thanks - after experimenting a bit with debootstrap i assumed it would be a PITA to make all this working
and now it exists

Gadi, if i have a user logged in (non-root), and a terminal session, how can i 'su' to a priv'd (root type) session from that non-priv'd user acct? su root or su myserverprivacct doesn't accept passwd
if that user is non priveleged, you would need to do:
su - <priveleged_user>
and then give the password of the priveleged user
so, if 'bob' is priveleged and you are on joe
joe#: su - bob
|10:41||plamengr has joined #ltsp|
then, you will be bob and can sudo
sysadmin is my priv'd user, su - sysadmin doesn't work, note, this is in an LTSP env
it should be independent of LTSP
you're just one user wanting to switch to another
i wish :)
perhaps you have the wrong password
spelling counts ;)
what error do you get?
do you get prompted for a password?
is sysadmin a simple, local user
do you have any kind of network authentication as well?
this is a standard edubuntu install w/LTSP, i can only sudo su when parent process is sysadmin
you mean when you open a terminal as sysadmin
i start an x session w/sysadmin login, then sudo su
if i start an x session as 'bob', i can't sudo su - sysadmin
you *should* be able to just: su - sysadmin
(bob can never sudo - poor bob - he has no sudo privileges)
