Hi there,
05:44
I'm in trouble with LTSP5 on Xubuntu Feisty.
05:44
When I want to start an Xfce session on the client, the session is closed as soon as it is opened: black screen for half a second and return to the gdm greeter.
05:44
If I start a "failsafe terminal" session, it's ok. I can even "startxfce4" from the terminal...
05:44
What makes that I can't start an Xfce session directly?
05:44
Thanks.

i have problem using blender with ltsp ! can someone help me ?
06:48
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: I would hang tight in here for help. I doubt that many blender users in blenderchat can help much
06:49
<haier_on_Mars>
ccherrett what should i do so ?
06:49
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: what is the problem. Not that I think I will have the answer
06:50
<haier_on_Mars>
i'm using ltsp under debian gnome and when i try to open blender, i don't have anything.
06:50
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: I wonder if it is opengl over the terminal
06:50
haier_on_Mars: that would be my first guess
06:50
haier_on_Mars: do other programs work?
06:51
<haier_on_Mars>
all other programs
06:51
expect bzflag, a 3d game
06:51
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: sounds like an opengl problem
06:51
haier_on_Mars: blenders interface is opengl
06:51
<haier_on_Mars>
yes
06:51
perhaps
06:53
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: check this out: http://www.mail-archive.com/ltsp-discuss@lists.sourceforge.net/msg05476.html
06:53
haier_on_Mars: seems opengl is possible
06:53
<haier_on_Mars>
i found exactely the problem
06:53
when lanchiung blender in a terminal, i have this message :
06:53
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display "ws198.ltsp:0.0".
06:53
ERROR: Unable to open Blender window
06:56
<ccherrett>
haier_on_Mars: sounds like you are missing the drivers on the server
06:56
<haier_on_Mars>
i think that the display is missing in xorg.conf

Hello. I hope everyone is doing well. I think I screwed up my LTSP server (Fedora Core) rather stupidly, but I'm hoping that it isn't as bad as I think it is.
12:53
In a nutshell, it won't boot because Grub can't find a file.
12:54
Error: 'Booting Fedora Core 2.6.22.1-32.fc6"
12:54
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.1-32.fc6 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
12:54
Error 15: file not found
12:55
Press any key to continue.
12:55
Pressing a key takes me to the Grub screen where there is the one option for FC and then it cycles. I have access to the FC installation CDs and Knoppix.
12:56
I understand that the issue is that it can't find the appropriate image file to boot up (I think!) but I don't know where it should be or how to confirm it.
12:56
Any help would greatly be appreciated. thanks
13:14
Update: ok playing around with the rescue CD shows me under /boot I have no files (and therefore no Kernel!)
13:14
how can I download the appropriate file?
13:32
<evarlast>
mount all your filesystems to some mountpoint like /mnt, then chroot to /mnt and then reinstall your kernel rpms
13:33
<TheProf>
evarlast, thanks for helping. I mounted everything up using the rescue CD then I checked under /usr/src/redhat but all the directories under it are empty
13:36
Is this as simple as a yum command?
13:45
<evarlast>
if your network is up and yum points to network, then yes.
13:45
the real worry you should have is why were all the files gone from /boot
13:45
<TheProf>
evarlast, I just did as you suggested and yum-med in the kernel group.
13:46
There are now the appropriate files in /boot
13:46
<evarlast>
good luck on reboot
13:46
<TheProf>
In regards to why they are gone from /boot to begin with, I believe that was my error - a power failure occurred (which is where I found out that the UPS connected to the server is dead) and it wouldn't boot so I tried to uninstall and reinstall the kernel
13:47
that's when /boot was wiped.
13:47
I rebooted but I have the same error. I believe grub is looking for a different version/file than the one just installed in /boot
13:48
I'm rebooting back in to rescue CD to get the exact name of the vmlinuz file

Alright I think that yum and then renaming the file in grub.conf did it
14:09
just in time as I have to get going. thank you for your help.
