06:13
<ogra>
hey
06:13
<cdealer__>
ogra: after a reboot my clients cant loggin anymore... anyideia ?
06:13
<ogra>
did your IP data change in any way ?
06:14
<cdealer__>
ogra: maybe... but they are coming to the login screen .... but when they insert the username and password they back to the login screen and dont login
06:15
<ogra>
so did the IP data of the server change ? if so, run the ltsp-update-sshkeys command to adjust the keys for login
06:16
<cdealer__>
ogra: Hmmm god ideia ... =D
06:17
ogra: I knew that was something simple hahaha thank you =D

<diadicic>
Having a small problem. My clients seem to be ignoring my "/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf" file. Any changes I make to it do nothing.
09:22
<sbalneav>
diadicic: What version of ltsp are you running?
09:22
<diadicic>
4.2 I believe
09:22
<sbalneav>
And, cand you paste your lts.conf to the pastebot?
09:22
!pastebot
09:22
<ltspbot`>
sbalneav: Error: "pastebot" is not a valid command.
09:22
<sbalneav>
hrrm
09:23
pastebot.ltsp.org
09:23
<diadicic>
sbalneav: Ok I am figuring out how to do that. Hang on.
09:25
<ltsppbot>
"diadicic" pasted "lts.conf" (28 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/324
09:25tiagovaz__ has joined #ltsp

<sbalneav>
Looks ok
09:28
<diadicic>
well I am really only concerned with [ws240]. I need that client to run at 640x480. I ve also tried to force that use to run a shell just to test it out and it did not work.
09:29
I guess I will change the default and see if that does anything first. Then I ll have to take it from there.
09:30
<sbalneav>
Are you sure your workstations know their hostnames?
09:30tux_440volt has quit IRC
09:30jammcq has joined #ltsp

<sbalneav>
Maybe try addressing via the mac address.
09:30

g'morning all
09:30
<diadicic>
thats a though
09:30
<sbalneav>
[00:11:22:33:44:55]
09:30
morning jammcq
09:31
<diadicic>
sbalneav: If I logon to a workstation and type $DISPLAY that should give me its name. Correct?
09:31
<sbalneav>
No
09:31
echo $DISPLAY
09:32
<diadicic>
sorry thats what I ment. It would have taken me about 10 tries but I think I would have gotten it.
09:32
<sbalneav>
but that may not be what the workstation thinks it it.
09:32
it is.
09:32sepski has joined #ltsp
09:33
<diadicic>
How does the workstation know what it is?
09:33
<sbalneav>
do a SCREEN_02 = shell, and then do a hostname on the thin client to find out what it really thinks it's hostname is.
09:33
from dhcpd
09:33
<diadicic>
ok
09:35
after I edit the lts.conf. Do I have to reboot the server itself?
09:40
ok. It reports it self at ws240.ltsp

10:42
cdealer__: have you noticed any problem with java jvm ?
10:43
ogra: in our tests we have noticed that sometimes the cpu use of jvm comes to 100% and the machine stops to respond and them we have to kill the session and start all overagain
10:44Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp

ogra: Hmm we use a oracle ias aplication that uses a java applet... now the user are using for 2 hours without problem and no problem, but before we had some freezing problems = very strange
10:45
<ogra>
hmm, weird
10:46
i havent heard about an issues yet
10:46
<rjune>
ogra: howdy
10:46
<ogra>
hey rjune
10:54
<cdealer__>
ogra: is there anyway to force some app to run on the client (using the client resources) ?
10:55
<ogra>
cdealer__, not easily, no currently you would have to set up a local ssh server, make sure the users /home is mounted on teh client (for the keys and apps) and need a network based auth mechanism that authenticates the client in parallel to the server session
10:55tiagovaz_ has joined #ltsp
10:56
<ogra>
sbalneav already works on a really sweet solution for this but that wont be in before ubuntu hardy starts
10:58
<cdealer__>
ogra: you know how to do it ? This java aplication must run smooth with no problems... i said already that we are open to consulting dont i? O.o

11:11DonSilver has quit IRC
11:12

cdealer__, yes
11:13
<cdealer__>
hmm im very open to ideas... but just hope to be something I can do
11:16vagrantc has joined #ltsp
11:18
<sbalneav>
I'd say I'd be at least a month or two away before I'd have something I was comfortable with releasing
11:19
And even then, there's no guarenteeing that the other LTSP developers will like my idea.
11:20* ogra does
11:20
<ogra>
and we'll just corner vagrantc :)
11:20* vagrantc wonders what idea this is
11:20
<sbalneav>
method for handling localapps.
11:21
In a nutshell:
11:21
<ogra>
vagrantc, remenmer Gadi's idea for using getpwent ?
11:21
<sbalneav>
1) install libnss-extrafiles in the chroot
11:21
<ogra>
scott thought that to an end :)
11:22
<sbalneav>
2) ldm has login script that gets user and group data from host
11:22
<ogra>
in a really sexy way imho :)
11:22
(as usual indeed)
11:22
<sbalneav>
3) user and group data added to extra passwd and group file
11:23
4) small (~200 lines so far) daemon sits and watches for an xprop on the root window to change.
11:23
5) when xprop changes, reads the prop, that's a command line, and executes it.
11:23
no sshd, or authentication needed.
11:24
xprop -root -f LTSP_USERNAME 8s -set LTSP_USERNAME "sbalneav"
11:24
<vagrantc>
is it possible for the user to fake the user/group data and get access to someone else's files?
11:25
<ogra>
i have a vague ide about an Xsession.d scritpt that merges xdg dirs to replace the right .desktop files
11:25
<sbalneav>
xprop -root -f LTSP_PROGRAM 8s -set LTSP_PROGRAM "firefox"
11:25Rplata has joined #ltsp
11:25
<sbalneav>
vagrantc: well, here's my check for that:
11:26
on login, you get the user's passwd entry, and add it to the extra passwd file on the chroot, via ldm's rc scripts
11:26
<joebaker>
The id command shows which groups the user is a member of. Your script should also bring across all the group ids the user is a member of. This sounds pretty neat.
11:27
<ogra>
the nice thing is that it works without needing sshd
11:27
<sbalneav>
the xrexec daemon looks at the username, and does a getpwname(LTSP_USERNAME), if that returns "null", then you can't run anything.
11:27
<ogra>
hah ....
11:27
<joebaker>
For instance user joebaker is a member of group nelfc. We user a technique called User Private Groups here with a umask of 002.
11:27
<sbalneav>
so you'd only have the user you're currently running as known as the local terminal.
11:28
<ogra>
any local desktop app we'll install will have a .desktop file installed in the clinet ...
11:28
lets have an ldm script that fills a LOCALAPPS env var with a list of these apps
11:28
then we have it available in the session ...
11:28
<vagrantc>
so ... how is LTSP_PROGRAM actually used ?
11:28
<sbalneav>
On logout, you simply erase those extra files.
11:29Q-FUNK has quit IRC
11:29
<sbalneav>
LTSP_PROGRAM is the X property that you pass the command line of the program you want to run.
11:29
<vagrantc>
and what runs it?
11:29
<joebaker>
Is there a url for the specifications page for this program?
11:29
<sbalneav>
This program I've written.
11:29
<ogra>
vagrantc, an app on the client
11:30Rplata has quit IRC
11:30
<sbalneav>
it sits and listens for X property events, and then exec's the program passed in the property.
11:30
<vagrantc>
this app also handles home dir mounting?
11:30
<sbalneav>
Right now, I just mount /home on the thin client.
11:30
<ogra>
ldm can do that
11:31
<sbalneav>
but yeah, something more fine grained can be worked up.
11:31
right now, it's barely proof of concept.
11:31tux_440volt has quit IRC
11:31
<ogra>
even via sshfs (for apps that work with it at least)
11:31
<vagrantc>
and so, you're basically adding the user's passwd/group info locally
11:31
<sbalneav>
right.
11:31
from the server, at login time.
11:31
<vagrantc>
and then looking for a setting in x properties ... and running it
11:32
<sbalneav>
so you avoid having to set up network authentication on the client.
11:32
<vagrantc>
which would be *slick*

11:33
<vagrantc>
well, it sounds worth exploring, for sure... though doing unusual authentication schemes always makes me a bit nervous.
11:34
<sbalneav>
This little xrexec daemon, right now, is only around 200 lines of code.
11:34
Well, you're not actually authenticating. :)
11:34
You're just using nss to provide user and group data.
11:34
<vagrantc>
well, "working around well-known authentication systems" always makes me a bit nervous :)
11:34
<ogra1>
vagrantc, ubuntu wont add it without libnss-extrafiles being in main which means full security review
11:35
<sbalneav>
the authentication's by dint of the fact that you've already GOT a plumbed X connection :)
11:35
Well, we could just add/remove from /etc/passwd and /etc/group on the thin client, but that's more gross, imho
11:35
with the extrafiles, you can just delete the files on logout.
11:36* vagrantc can't find libnss-extrafiles
11:36* ogra1 could neither :)
11:36
<sbalneav>
p libnss-extrausers - nss module to have an additional passwd, s
11:37
Sorry, I always call it the wrong thing.
11:37
it's written by the same guy as libnss-db, which is in main, I think
11:37
it's small. Only a few hundred lines.
11:38
From my point of view, it means:
11:38
1) We can take advantage of a package that's already there, for the user details
11:39
2) The xrexec daemon is (so far) nice and small, and doesn't have to do much, so it's fairly easily maintained
11:40
3) We avoid the whole "LDAP?! Kerberos??! Active Directory?!? How we gonna support all this in a thin client" mess.
11:40
Server handles authentication. if "getent passwd $USER" runs on the server, this will work(!)
11:41
<ogra1>
!
11:41
<vagrantc>
since ldm is running getent as the user, how do we prevent them from providing false data ?
11:42
<sbalneav>
well, the script that gets the info runs from the croot.
11:42
<vagrantc>
but if the user has some weird LD_PRELOAD environment or something ...
11:42
full paths would mostly handle the issue...
11:43
<sbalneav>
yeah
11:43
It has the potential to be small and well contained.
11:43
<vagrantc>
so, the LTSP_PROGRAM xprop setting ... can you run multiple programs locally ?
11:44
or rather, how do you run multiple programs locally
11:44Daggett has quit IRC
11:45
<vagrantc>
or does the daemon delete the LTSP_PROGRAM xprop thingy once it executes the program ?
11:45gonzaloaf has quit IRC
11:47
<jammcq>
oh jeez, not the old 'LDAP Scares the hell out of us, so lets not use it" thing
11:48
<vagrantc>
if we can find a solid, simpler alternative, i'm all for it.
11:48ogra has quit IRC
11:49
<ogra1>
jammcq, we can still use ldap ... just not twice ;)
11:49
whatever the server has configured will be used for authentication
11:49
<vagrantc>
simply setting LOCAL_APPS=True in lts.conf ... should really be that simple.
11:49
<ogra1>
;)
11:49
vagrantc, not even that
11:50
vagrantc, have a script that checks /usr/share/applications for .desktop files
11:50
if there are any, you have a local app
11:51
<vagrantc>
but the client-side needs to know about weather or not LOCAL_APPS should be enabled.
11:51
and the admin should be able to disable it, if they want to.
11:51
<jammcq>
and whether or not to mount the users homedir
11:51
<ogra1>
well, default to true if we find anything and the user hasnt set "False"
11:52
jammcq, indeed you always mount it by default ...
11:52
<jammcq>
and then, there's a HUGE problem with gconfd
11:52
can't have a gconfd on the client AND on the server, both accessing the same gconf database
11:52* vagrantc would *not* want homedirs mounted by default
11:52
<ogra1>
did you test that ?
11:52
<jammcq>
ogra1: no, others have, like eHarrison
11:53
<ogra1>
afaik gconfd is bound to $DISPLAY
11:53* jammcq wonders what 'bound to $DISPLAY' means in this context
11:53
<vagrantc>
DISPLAY=:0.0 and DISPLAY=localhost:11.0
11:53
<ogra1>
hmm, we'd finally need that dbus x protocol
11:53
<vagrantc>
you've usually got two displays with LDM
11:53
<ogra1>
jammcq, it wont start twice on one i mean
11:53
<jammcq>
you'd still have 2 gconfd daemons running. one on the server, for the server-run applilcations. and one on the client, for the client-run applications
11:54
<ogra1>
depends on the mode you use, not with LDM_DIRECTX for example
11:54
<jammcq>
and BOTH would try updating the gconf database, and THERE is the problem
11:54
<vagrantc>
so, some apps, due to bugs in those apps, can't be supported in LOCAL_APPS until those bugs are fixed
11:54
<jammcq>
ok, ALL GNOME apps would fall under that category
11:55
<vagrantc>
sure, and thus the impetus to get those bugs fixed.
11:55
<ogra1>
yeah, you need a dbus channel ...
11:55
<vagrantc>
jammcq: what do you propose other than fixing those bugs?
11:55
<jammcq>
I agree we need a dbus channel. I'm just not sure how it fixes the gconfd problem
11:55
<ogra1>
then the same gconfd for both can be used
11:55
apps talk to it via dbus
11:56
<jammcq>
vagrantc: certainly bugs need to be fixed. I'm thinking we need a gnome person to help make gconfd network-aware
11:56
<ogra1>
if the app finds a dbus socket and gets a proper reply from gconfd on the bus, it wont attempt to start a local one
11:56* vagrantc hasn't yet started X today
11:56
<jammcq>
ogra1: that's probably the sane approach
11:57
<ogra1>
not gconfd needs network awareness ;) dbus needs it :P
11:57
<jammcq>
well, then gconfd needs dbus-awareness
11:57chris_punches has joined #ltsp
11:57
<ogra1>
gconfd *uses* dbus :)
11:57
<jammcq>
not for actually writing gconf updates, eh?
11:57
<ogra1>
at least in 2.20
11:58
no, to talk to the apps
11:58
you wont get around a database
11:59
so ~/.gconf wont go away
11:59
<jammcq>
but how many processes will actually touch it?
11:59
just one? on the server?
11:59gonzaloaf has joined #ltsp
12:00
<ogra1>
yeah
12:00
the one in the session
12:00
<jammcq>
and all other apps running not-on-the-server would communicate with the gconfd running on the server, via dbus?
12:00
<ogra1>
right
12:00
<jammcq>
make sense
12:00doggkatcha has quit IRC
12:00
<jammcq>
but is any of that there now?
12:00
or is this yet-to-be-written?
12:00
<ogra1>
we wanted hal anyway ... so dbus will come free :)
12:01* jammcq likes-using-hyphens-when-he-talks
12:01
<ogra1>
dbus is missing the networking bits
12:01
<jammcq>
from what I've heard, some of the networking bits are actually there, but not well tested
12:01
<ogra1>
even IPC with netcat handles that better i get
12:01
probably time to take a look
12:02
<jammcq>
and.... what does all this mean to the kubuntu/xubuntu folks?
12:02
<ogra1>
no idea for kubuntu
12:03
xubuntu uses gconfd afaik
12:03
so for gconf apps it would be the same
12:03
<jammcq>
i'm thinking we can't solve all the worlds problems, but it would be nice to have a direction to tell the kde guys
12:04
ok, so lets say that's how we handle the gconfd issue. what about mounting home dirs?
12:04
nfs?
12:04
fuse+reverse-ltspfs ?
12:04
samba? (can't believe I actually said that)
12:05
<vagrantc>
it wouldn't be the first time LTSP used samba ...
12:05* jammcq considers that a part of ltsp's DARK history
12:06
<vagrantc>
ltspfs is sure interesting.
12:06* jammcq thinks so too
12:06
<jammcq>
well, a modified ltspfs
12:06
<vagrantc>
modified ?
12:06
<jammcq>
to work the other way
12:06
client-mounts-server, instead of server-mounts-client
12:07* vagrantc doesn't see a need to modify it, just need to have both client and server bits installed on both the client and the server
12:07
<jammcq>
well, changes would be required. now, you'd have a daemon running on the server that MANY thin clients would be connecting to
12:07
you'd have to manage ports
12:07
and access control
12:07
<vagrantc>
ah. fair enough.
12:08
<jammcq>
dunno how involved that would be, but I seriously doubt the current implementation would work out of the box
12:08
I do know a guy who's an expert on ltspfs tho
12:08
<vagrantc>
it's all black magic to me
12:09
<ogra1>
the binaries should be usable the other way roud
12:10
the scripts wont
12:11
for the daemon side thats easily solved by a ldm rc script ... you can start it with the session
12:11
get the next free port and make sure the client knows about it

<sbalneav>
I fail to see what's the problem with NFS.
13:39
<vagrantc>
sshfs, or at least using the secure channel we already have... seems like a nice idea- using the secure channel we already have
13:40
with NFS, you basically are giving write permission to user's data across an insecure medium ...
13:40
<sbalneav>
We're doing that now.
13:41* vagrantc doesn't have any environment's where the home directories are writeable through insecure filesystems
13:41
<sbalneav>
Then maybe that's an enironment where you don't run localapps.
13:41
ltspfs would be LESS secure than nfs.
13:41
<vagrantc>
sure
13:42
well, sure that ltspfs will be less secure than nfs...
13:43
i would like to be able to use local apps and have a more secure filesystem, and will continue to keep an eye out for how to make that possible.
13:44
<sbalneav>
Well, you'd either have to modify sshfs, but that wouldn't be secure either.
13:44
In fact, until we do someting to store the ssh keys on a local medium on the thin client, none of the ssh stuff we've done is secure either.
13:44
<jammcq>
sshfs ain't the answer. no freespace capability
13:44
<sbalneav>
it's just obfuscation :)
13:45
<vagrantc>
there are layers of security
13:45
<jammcq>
i'd take obfuscation as an intermediate step
13:46
<vagrantc>
security is not boolean ... there's a big difference between sending all your data via unencrypted XDMCP vs. through an ssh in which the ssh binary is coming from an insecure filesystem
13:46
<jammcq>
tru dat
13:46
<sbalneav>
The keys are also going across the network in cleartext.
13:46
like I say, it's obfuscation.
13:47
<jammcq>
but there's a difference between a casual listener, and one who actively tries to grab the keys, and work them into a solution for monitoring all traffic
13:47
<vagrantc>
the client-side key is generated at run-time, and the known_hosts data is cleartext
13:47
<jammcq>
obviously, the most secure thing would be to unplug all devices from the network
13:47
but that's hardly a good choice either
13:48Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp
13:48
<vagrantc>
to compromise it, you would have to consistantly hijack the NFS connection and insert your own known_hosts data, and grab and ensure all ip traffic goes to your stolen ip.
13:48
(or NBD connection)
13:49
<jammcq>
the security issue with NFS isn't the fact that somebody can snoop and see the data. the problem is that ANYBODY with a laptop can connect up and modify YOUR files
13:49
student has laptop, plugs into network and modifies the grades in the teachers home directory
13:49twinprism has joined #ltsp
13:49
<jammcq>
it's an authentication problem, more than an encryption problem. imho
13:50* jammcq notes that's the first time he's ever used "imho"
13:51
<sbalneav>
Well, there's two problems with sshfs:
13:52
1) The freespace issue. This can be handled by stacking a small, custom fuse filesystem on top that passes through most stuff to the sshfs filesystem, execpt the statfs call, which it handles out of band.
13:52
<Q-FUNK>
all portmap-based services suck, anyhow
13:52
<sbalneav>
and 2) Now you're going to have to keep the users password around on the workstation somewhere in cleartext so you can plumb the ssh connection.
13:53
<vagrantc>
regarding point 2, can't we just use the ssh socket, like we do with all the other LDM stuff ?
13:53
<jammcq>
sbalneav: is it possible to use the encrypted channel already created by ldm ?
13:53
<sbalneav>
Not without modifying the source to sshfs, I don't think. Since it spawns off it's own ssh.
13:54
<jammcq>
so maybe sshfs isn't the thing to do that with
13:54
<sbalneav>
It would, one supposes, be a nice feature to use an existing ssh control socket, and Miklos of Fuse/SSHFS would probably accept something like that.
13:55
<jammcq>
seems like it, eh
13:55
<vagrantc>
we can hope
13:55
<sbalneav>
Well, Miklos is pretty reasonable, I've spoken to him via email a couple of times, so that's a possibility there.
13:55
<vagrantc>
"the freespace issue" is a fundamental design issue ?
13:56
<jammcq>
yes
13:56
sshfs relies on sftp, which doesn't have a freespace call
13:56
<sbalneav>
sftp has no call in it to find out the free space on the remote filesystm
13:56
<vagrantc>
got it
13:56
<sbalneav>
but writing a passtrhough filesystem to handle that's an afternoon job.
13:56
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: for you, maybe :)
13:57* jammcq notes that it's only 2pm where scotty is :)
13:57
<sbalneav>
Besides the "ick" factor of stacking two fuse filesystems on top of each other :)

13:58
<sbalneav>
Anywho, I got an appointment. I'm gonna dash off, I'll take a peek at sshfs tonight.
13:58

13:58
it needs a bandaid on top of it to finish the job
13:58
<sbalneav>

13:58
<vagrantc>
jammcq: sure.
13:59
but you can't deny the attractiveness of using an existing secure channel
13:59

oh, I LIKE that idea

hey for my host ws001 in dhcpd.conf what do i need beside the mac address and the ip address i want it to have. i have a chroot called nvidia
14:13
trying to make a certain box boot to a different chroot...
14:13
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: root-path
14:14
joebob777as7_: but does it use the exact same kernel ?
14:14
<joebob777as7_>
so option root-path "/opt/ltsp/nvidia";
14:14
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: otherwise you'd have to also specify a different filename
14:14
<joebob777as7_>
not sure lol they are 64 bit boxes...
14:14
?
14:15
<vagrantc>
i can't tell you what you have :P
14:16
<joebob777as7_>
i just did ltsp build client for nvidia dir and i installed graphics drivers
14:16
...
14:16plamengr has quit IRC
14:16
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: then you probably need to specify something like: filename /ltsp/nvidia/pxelinux.0
14:18
<joebob777as7_>
vagrantc, do i need the else filename as well
14:19
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: so, you've got an /opt/ltsp/nvidia ... and anything else in /opt/ltsp ? you've got a /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/nvidia .... anything else in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp ?
14:20
<joebob777as7_>
in /opt/ltsp i've got amd64 i386 images and nvidia
14:20
and in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp i've got amd64 and i386
14:20
and nvidia
14:20
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: so you need some way in dhcp to distinguish between using i386, amd64 and nvidia ... (though why not just install the nvdidia stuff into the i386 and amd64 dirs?)
14:21Amaranth has quit IRC
14:21
<joebob777as7_>
because ogra told me that by install the graphics drivers i would overwrite xgl in that dir. so i wanted to leave it open for someone to be able to bring in a laptop and plug in...
14:21
<vagrantc>
ok
14:22
<joebob777as7_>
so in dhcpd.conf i put hotst ws001 {
14:22
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: so, you just need to set up appropriate root-path and filename entries for each machine ...
14:22
<joebob777as7_>
hardware ethernet 00:19:db:d2:ac;
14:22
fixed address 10.0.0.5;

group option?
14:24
<vagrantc>
joebob777as7_: well, if you only have one machine for ws001, then no big deal, but if you have say 5 machines that all need the same root-path and filename parameters, you set up a group for them ...
14:25
<joebob777as7_>
yeah i do have 6 machines but i only one for the moment...
14:25
for the others would i just put hardware ethernet multiple times in ws001?

joebob777as7_: i *think* you want to put your host declaration inside the subnet declaration
14:26

14:27

no not really

oh ok awesome vagrantc thanks i'll try it now
14:30

so, theoretically:

16:04
-o ControlPath=/var/run/ldm_socket
16:04
<sbalneav>
sshfs -o ssh_command='ssh -S /var/run/ldm_control_scoket"
16:04
<ogra>
;)
16:04
why the extra ssh call ?
16:05
<sbalneav>
Well, they don't have that option now.
16:05
<ogra>
scp -o ControlPath=/var/run/ldm_socket /tmp/$(echo $DISPLAY| sed s/\\./\-/g|cut -d':' -f1)_small.png server:/tmp/.thin-client-manager/
16:05
works perfect
16:05
i'd expect that to work with sshfs as well
16:05
<sbalneav>
Well, the question was, if we were using sshfs to mount home dirs from the server, could we use the control socket from the existing ssh
16:06
-o SSHOPT=VAL
16:06
<ogra>
yeah, like every other ssh based command
16:06
<sbalneav>
looks like it'll work
16:06
<ogra>
so -o ControlPath=/var/run/ldm_socket should be fine
16:06
<sbalneav>
so, no patches required to sshfs
16:07
just a layer on top of sshfs to implement the statfs call
16:07
<ogra>
do we really need it ?
16:07
<sbalneav>
yeah

21:50
<moquist>
jcastro: just rolled out puppet yesterday & today, for one school.
21:50
jcastro: ltsp party? :(
21:50

moquist: if it's not too much trouble, can you document your puppet stuff and bring it with you? I'm keen on getting it in as server candy for LTS, I'd like some more data on it.
21:52
<moquist>
jcastro: would it be enough to bring a tarball of /etc/puppet? :)
21:52
<jcastro>
I find it a perfect match for people deploying LTSP, I'd like to get that better supported in ubuntu
21:52
moquist: yep yep, it would
21:53
<moquist>
that's easily done, then.

right now I'm just pushing out dhcp configuration (with load balancing), sudoers, /etc/cups/ppd/* and printers.conf
21:53
printers.conf is awkward. I'm not happy with it.
21:53
<jcastro>
yeah
21:53
you have my config right?
21:54
<moquist>
I overwrote a teachers' printers.conf on his laptop, which had a one-off printer configured for it.
21:54
jcastro: er, maybe. haven't been looking at it.
21:54
<jcastro>
k, feel free to holler at me
21:54
<moquist>
jcastro: Oh, and my server got cracked and then 2/3 of my RAID array died in the same day, so I lost a bunch of stuff. Not sure yet whether I'm going to be able to recover my data.
21:55
<jcastro>
I had a raid die my last day at the university
21:55
I feel you man
21:55
<moquist>
Oh, painful. :(
21:55
<jcastro>
luckily never been owned
21:55
<moquist>
I managed to grab ~/docs before it went, which is VERY good.
21:55
I lost ~/projects, but most of that is already somewhere else.
21:55
<jcastro>
the last few months I took a "linus" view on backups, as much shit copied to as many places as possible

moquist: I gotta tell you my new sunray story
21:56
<moquist>
jcastro: I think it was the cracked canonical servers, but I'm not sure. (I logged back into my machine from those.)
21:56
<jcastro>
moquist: ouch.
21:56
<moquist>
jcastro: new sunray story...?
21:56
<jcastro>
so like we've been an ltsp shop for going on a year now, so sun sent down some "experts".
21:57
<moquist>
"Expert Senior Sales", that is.
21:57
<jcastro>
they want to donate $20k of server equipment for a cluster if we'll come back to sunray in our labs.
21:58
pure slime. unfortunately I left the job before I could squash that. Lucky for me the Dean is an ubuntu maniac, so when I tell him "Don't do that, seriously." he listened
21:58
<moquist>
nice
21:58
jcastro: so you left your job...
21:58
<jcastro>
but seriously, how scummy. "Donating" equipment with conditions to move back to their platform.
21:59
moquist: yeah, I work for canonical now
21:59
<moquist>
Sun Scum.
21:59
jcastro: yay! so apparently that worked out. Congratulations!
21:59
<jcastro>
moquist: thanks.

Hmm. Just to clarify -- when I complained about printers.conf, I was actually complaining about handling it in puppet.
22:00
<jcastro>
unfortunately, I was one of their lead dudes in .edu deployment stuff, so now they need a new rockstar who works in .edu, deploys LTSP, and is generally awesome.
22:00
moquist: it's a good thing you're around. :p

I would rather have printer { ppd => <source>, name => "name" } than file { printers.conf...}.
22:00
<jcastro>
split it into classes
22:00
that's what I did for everything
22:01
<moquist>
jcastro: No, I'm saying that I want a printer Puppet Type. (I hope there is one, I haven't been able to check yet.)
22:01
<jcastro>
well, if you need one, let's just ask luke at uds.
22:02
<moquist>
jcastro: well, do you agree?
22:02
jcastro: the point is that I want to be able to add printers without blowing away whatever may have been configured locally.
22:02
<jcastro>
moquist: dude I hated cups so much I ran a windows print server
22:02
that's how much I hated cups.
22:03
<moquist>
Oh, I don't care so much about cups. I'm not using it for print serving; we have JetDirect everywhere.
22:03
...but that means I have to tell every machine about every printer.
22:03
<jcastro>
moquist: document your issues and I'll bring them to luke, I have to take off.
22:03* moquist nods
22:03
<jcastro>
moquist: but I'll see you in boston
22:03
<3
22:03
<moquist>
I've been thinking of piping up in #puppet about it.
22:03
<jcastro>
do so
22:03
<moquist>
yep
22:03
<jcastro>
it's a friendly place
22:04
<moquist>
I've been in there a bit and gotten help.
22:04

you want to talk to lak, that's luke; use my name in vain to get help

who out there experiences random thin-client freezes with LTSP, say, while online w/Firefox?
22:38
I've got a class that was online today for 20 minutes, and 5 machines hard-locked while using Firefox.
22:51
<sbalneav>
lns: There's been a huge discussion on this lately
22:52
Check out the ltsp-discuss, edubuntu-users, and edubuntu-devel mailing lists.
22:53
<lns>
sbalneav, great - thank you
22:53
<sbalneav>
lns: Bottom line: it's firefox grabbing all your ram.
22:54
<lns>
sbalneav, wow...ok i'll check the lists, is there any light at the end of the tunnel?
22:57
<sbalneav>
Strategies:
22:57
1) Wait for firefox to decide to fix it (some work being done, no clue when finished)
22:57
2) Add huge amounts of nbd swap
22:58
3) Add more ram
22:58
4) Use something else, like Konqeror, or Opera.
23:03
<lns>
...wow
23:04
I guess I don't understand the way firefox handles ram, but it sure seems like it should be restricted/recycled somehow instead of just eating it all up and causing the whole session to crash
23:04
<sbalneav>
Read the threads.
23:04
<lns>
in the process
23:04
<sbalneav>
it's a complex issue.
