morning all
05:17
sbalneav: remember we talked about X config on Friday.
05:17
You suggested that I should use xmod.amd.conf file as my linuterm is not booting to X on Edubuntu.
05:18
It's not working for me :( Or I simply have a typo somewhere in lts.conf file.
05:19
<cliebow__>
sbalneav wont be in for a bit i'd wager
05:20
<multik>
oh ok
05:20
I welcome any ideas on now to get my linuterm to see Edubuntu X login screen :)

I can only see text login prompt
05:32
<cliebow__>
yeah so x isnt stating...ogra is round somewhere...might be able to help...you alrwady tried fesa i suppose
05:32
<multik>
nope
05:32
<cliebow__>
heh vesa
05:32
<multik>
I'm quite new to linux world all together, so please do take a minute to describe what you mean :)
05:33
vesa you mean X_SERVER=vesa? in lts.conf? = yes I've tried it, no go
05:33
<cliebow__>
this is feisty or gutsy?
05:33
<multik>
gutsy
05:33
edubuntu, latest pathes everything
05:33
<cliebow__>
can you create AN LTS.CONF AND PLACE IT IN whoops
05:34
can you create AN LTS.CONF AND PLACE IT IN whoops0
05:34
/var/lib/tftpboot/i386 (i think
05:34
<multik>
lts.conf file, umm it has 2 lines only, LTSP version and link to xorg.amd.conf file that I got from sbalneav on Friday
05:34
yes it's there alright
05:35
<cliebow__>
soit should be perhaps [Default]
05:35
xserver=vesa
05:35
<multik>
second line is: X_CONF=/etc/xorg.amd.conf
05:35
I don't know why I had to make it /etc/xorg.amd.conf if there's no file there.
05:35
<cliebow__>
ooh..
05:36
i think that line is wonky..

<cliebow__>
if Scottie didnt suggest xserver==vesa then that is probably a lemon
05:38
<multik>
I copied .conf file to /opt/ltsp/i386/etc folder as per ogras suggestion
05:39
xserver==vesa
05:39
or X_SERVER=vesa?
05:40
I think if I change the path to xorg.conf file it might even work
05:42MagicStorm has quit IRC

ahah, interesting, now I don't see text login scree, instead I see only black screen :)

cliebow__: xserver=vesa? is this row case sensitive?
06:36
cliebow__: no go, vesa made no difference to thin client. Now I see text screen again where I'm asked to type in ltsp logininfo.
06:37
<cliebow__>
multik: i have to defer to other guys..leaving for work ...
06:40Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp

there was a time you could force the client to boot to shell on client..then manually startx x and when it fails read the logfile

anybody here know how I can create a PXE config entry that hands a client off to another tftp server? i.e., if they select "Clonezilla" they'll download pxelinux.0 from another server and start over from there, as it were.
07:29
<ogra>
moquist, proibably with grub2 ...
07:29
PXE has a menu option, but thats only available *after* tftp'ing

07:33
<multik>
ogra: hi
07:34
<moquist>
Right, which is fine. But after I've TFTPed one pxelinux and presented a menu screen, can one of the LABELs configured there tell the client to TFTP another pxelinux.0 from another TFTP server?
07:34
ogra: Sorry, got interrupted here. I was halfway through typing that and just finished; I'll read your URLs now.
07:35* moquist is imagining something like KERNEL pxelinux.0 with APPEND next-server=<ip-of-next-tftp-server>

Hi all, I'm having trouble on making usb drives to mount automatically on ltsp client. What should I do to have ltsp_mount to automatically mount a usb stick and show an icon on user's desktop? I have ltspfs and ltspfsd on Debian Etch box

multik:if you set screen_07=shell you should be dumped to a prompt on the client..lspci -v and lspci -n should give you that
11:08
<multik>
aah, splendid. I would test it tomorrow. Thank you man
11:08effenberg has left #ltsp
11:10
<cliebow_>
i must be mostly right anyway
11:10
screen_0something anyway,,you should have a descri[tion of all recognized commands in your chroot
11:11
<multik>
what is chroot? where can I find it?
11:11
<cliebow_>
well /opt/ltsp/i386
11:11
is the filesysytem used to create the squashfs
11:11
<multik>
ok
11:13
<cliebow_>
so anything you want to happen on the actual client is done with a chroot /opt/ltsp/i386..then ltsp-update-image will create a new squashf
11:13
s
11:13
from it..
11:13
<multik>
I was under impression that if I change lts.conf file in /var/.... then I dont have to redo ltsp image.
11:14
<cliebow_>
right
11:14
lts.conf is downloaded independently
11:14
<multik>
ahah, ok. but i do all those changes in lts.conf, right?
11:14
<cliebow_>
yes
11:15
<multik>
ok, thanks. I've to run now. Thank you very much.
11:15
<cliebow_>
why dont you pastebot your lts.conf using pastebot.ltsp.org
11:15
sometime
11:15
no worries
11:15

Will some of the default Gutsy configurations need to be disabled for LTSP installs manually once upgraded/installed (I.E. fast user switching, desktop effects) ?

hi all, somebody knows if ltsp allow usb redirect? Not for printers only, but others devices, like fingertips in the local workstation.
13:07
<lns>
root, fingertips?
13:08
do you mean fingerprint scanners or usb drives?

root, i'm not sure, I haven't ever tried that... what is the application? I'm pretty sure LDM doesn't have fingerprint scanner support for login ;)
13:27BadMagic has joined #ltsp
13:29
<root>
lns, is for authentication in application, after login...
13:32
<lns>
root, well LTSP5 has support for local devices, beyond that, I think you have to know if you have the right driver installed, etc.
13:32
if you can get it going in a standalone ubuntu install (or on the server), that's a good start
13:37
<root>
lns, great, but LTSP4.2 has support for local devices too?
13:38
<lns>
looks like it actually
13:38
i haven't used 4.2 in a while
