Morning all
08:28
<Guaraldo>
jammcq: I was thinking about get LTSP-BR Project closer to LTSP... What do you think about creating a subdomain like br.ltsp.org?
08:28
!s
08:28
<ltspbot>
Guaraldo: "s" is Scotty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
08:28
<Guaraldo>
How are you doing, sbalneav?
08:29elisboa has quit IRC
08:30
<jammcq>
Guaraldo: sure, we could try something like that. but what about ltsp.org.br ? or just ltsp.br ?
08:30
Scotty !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morning jammcq!

jammcq: In Brasil, .org.br endings are privative to non-governamental institutes or associations. So there is a sort of documentations needed to register it...
08:34Gadi has joined #ltsp
08:35
<Guaraldo>
jammcq: We wold need to create an Association with non-lucrative intention, register this association, wait the documentation to be ok, after that we could register the domain...
08:35
jammcq: Too mutch burocracy...
08:36nicoAMG has joined #ltsp
08:36
<Guaraldo>
I'll call the voluntairies and if everyone feels ok, we can do that, but the domain wold be with us in a year or more... :-/
08:37
many non-governamental institutes in brasil prefers to use .org domains...
08:47
<jammcq>
so how about ltsp-br.org ?
08:47
just throwing out ideas
08:58
<Guaraldo>
jammcq: Yes... we aready use ltsp-br.org (in renewing process).
09:00
jammcq: If you think it's close enought... It's ok to me...
09:00
<jammcq>
Guaraldo: I'm most interested in what's easy
09:00
no point in spending alot of time on this
09:01
<Guaraldo>
jammcq: Ok...
09:05
<Blinny>
Can you specify a path for ltsp-build-client , for example if you're working with another /opt/ltsp/? directory than i386 ?
09:06
<sbalneav>
BASE=/foo/bar ltsp-build-client
09:09
<ogra>
ltsp-build-client --extra-help

Resara? Never heard of it
09:42
<Blinny>
What did the SECURE flag in lts.conf finally get named?
09:47
<sbalneav>
What secure flag?
09:47
<Blinny>
The one you were working on - SSH encryption of the traffic
09:47
<ogra>
LDM_DIRECTX
09:47
<Blinny>
LDM_SECURE or something?
09:47
Ah. Gotchya.
09:47

09:54

Gadi, for edubuntu the credits go to sbalneav as much as to me this tiem btw :)
09:54
wie geht's
09:54
<Gadi>
ah
09:55
<ogra>
to go -> gehen
09:55
<Gadi>
btw: on a less OT note, I noticed a whole bunch of video bug issues wrt gutsy + AMD LX chipset
09:55
any idea on the progress there?
09:55
<ogra>
how goes it -> wie geht es
09:55
<Gadi>
ah...
09:55
makes sense
09:56
<ogra>
no idea about amd, sbalneav and Q-funk were on that though
09:56
<Gadi>
yeah, it took me a long time before I understood that "veismeer" = "vay es mir" ;)
09:56
<sbalneav>
The org driver is , quite frankly, broken.
09:56muh2000_ has joined #ltsp
09:56
<sbalneav>
It crashes when you do an autoconfig.
09:56
<ogra>
sbalneav, but there was a working driver
09:57
one of them worked fine iirc
09:57
we could probably have some packages in a ppa of these
09:57* Gadi checks the ppa
10:00
<sbalneav>
Not as far as I know.
10:01
<ogra>
i thought it worked in the beginning
10:01
when it was first put nto debian

[ogra]:: Hi. I just downloaded Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition and want to know if after buil the ltsp client if it will automaticly install a graphical user interface or I will have to install by myself ?
11:16
because with 6.10 server there are no gui
11:16
<ogra>
you need to install that manually
11:16
<lns>
apt-get install ubuntu-desktop still, right?
11:16
<ogra>
there is no gui on the 7.10 server either ... only edubuntu has both (desktop and ltsp)
11:16
right
11:17
<cdealer>
Hmm
11:17
[ogra]:: but I must install the gui before build the clients ?
11:17
<ogra>
that doesnt matter
11:17
the gui needs to be in place if you want to log in :) ...
11:17
when you install it is up to you
11:18
<lns>
cdealer, the client chroot is mainly for booting and connecting to the server's X client
11:18Avatara has joined #ltsp
11:18
<cdealer>
Hmmm
11:19
I will install now and any problems I come back =) thanks for now
11:19Avatara has quit IRC

<cdealer>
[ogra]:: just an off question, to install gnome is simples as apt-get install gnome2 ?
11:20
<ogra>
gnome-desktop-environment i think
11:20
but i'd really take ubuntu-desktop
11:20
to get all thebells and whistles :)
11:21
<libmandan>
Hi all. I have a new 4.2 instal on Etch. Everything seems fine except that it takes 45 -60 seconds for firefox to open. I have other servers running 4.1 on sarge and firefox comes up in less thatn 5 sec. Any ideas?
11:21
<cdealer>
[ogra]:: but the server isnt more robust to production enviorements (damn word lol) ?
11:21
<ogra>
i meant the ubuntu-desktop package to install the desktop :)
11:22
<cdealer>
haha
11:22
<ogra>
the basic system is the same on server and desktop installs though
11:22
<cdealer>
sure, what was I thinking lol
11:22
[ogra]:: whats the big deal about the server version them?
11:22
<ogra>
thats why i would always build my ltsp servers on top of a desktop install
11:22
saves a lot of extra work
11:23
the new server CD has additional install variants ... like vserver, webserver. LAMP, db server etc
11:24
and it installs the server kernel flavor which is able to allocate more ram than the -generic one the desktop cd uses
11:24
<sbalneav>
libmandan: If you log in on the console, does it take 45 seconds?
11:24
<ogra>
thats about the only advantage in using the server CD here
11:24
<lns>
I know that when I tried installing the desktop 64-bit version on an HP Proliant ML370G5 it wouldn't recognize the NIC... only the server edition did
11:25
cuz of the server kernel
11:25
<cdealer>
Hmm
11:25
this is interesting point
11:25paul0 has joined #ltsp
11:25
<lns>
ogra, but what's weird is that on all of my installs, it ends up throwing the generic kernel on the server. I had to manually install the server kernel after the install was complete to get my NIC going
11:25
<paul0>
is it possible to use ltsp with wireless cards?
11:26
<cdealer>
I will be deploying in a server box with about 16gb of ram and four quad processor and 2 gb nic
11:26
<ogra>
given that you can just install linux-image-server i'd still use the desktop CD to save me the time for installing ubuntu-desktop
11:26
<sbalneav>
paul0: With an awful lot of work, yes. But you wouldn't be happy with the results.
11:26
<lns>
ogra, hmm....great insight!
11:26
<ogra>
cdealer, there the server kernel makes sense
11:26
<libmandan>
shalneav: It comes up on the console right away
11:26
<paul0>
sbalneav, why? will be slow?
11:27
<lns>
ogra, can you boot the server kernel from the desktop install cd via grub?
11:27
<ogra>
paul0, you need to hack up initramfs
11:27
<sbalneav>
libmandan: Then check the users .xsession-errors, see if there's any errors in there .
11:27
<ogra>
to have the wireless tools and drivers
11:27
<sbalneav>
paul0: slow, yes.
11:27
<lns>
cdealer, I also prefer the server install because it doesn't boot to a livecd environment, although I think you can do the same with a switch
11:27
<sbalneav>
Also, you can't pxe boot from a wireless card
11:28
<ogra>
and wil have to have scripts to set up the encryption and everything
11:28
<paul0>
hum
11:28
<sbalneav>
So you have to store the kernel/initramfs locally.
11:28
<ogra>
right and you need a bootCD or usb key
11:28
(floppy wont suffice for nowadays kernels)
11:28
<cdealer>
[ogra]:: the thing is that for now im testing on a p4 with 2gb of ram box ... Well .. I will install the server version to see what happens... starting get prepared when install on the production server box... and btw it will be a 64bits
11:29
<ogra>
cdealer, really take the desktop CD for installing the production server ...
11:29
it will save a lot of extra work and possible headdache ...
11:29
<cdealer>
yeah, just read the last line
11:29
<sbalneav>
I use the desktop cd for all my server installes.
11:29
<cdealer>
hehe
11:30
[sbalneav]:: you said something about booting pxe wirelless cards?
11:30
<libmandan>
sbalneav: There are a bunch of ALSA lib error. I do no need sound on the clients. Is there a way to disable sound in lts.conf?
11:30
<ogra>
cdealer, he said its not possible
11:30
<cdealer>
its that already possible ?
11:30
<sbalneav>
You can't.
11:30jbrett has joined #ltsp
11:30
<lns>
lol
11:30
<sbalneav>
At least, I've never seen a wireless card that could pxe boot.
11:30
<lns>
that would be so cool
11:30
it'd have to have a pretty hefty bootROM though i bet
11:30
<ogra>
would be a quite compleyx protocol
11:31
<sbalneav>
libmandan: SOUND=False
11:31
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: yeah, we had dreaming about pxe wirelless card.. our solution here are being to install bridges
11:31
<sbalneav>
That's what a lot of people do.
11:32
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: yeah, was the only solution we found
11:32
<lns>
bridging as in...?
11:32
<cdealer>
each bridge is dealing with 4 to 6 thinclients
11:32
<paul0>
ogra, where i can find documentation about wireless cards and ltsp?
11:33
<cdealer>
[lns]:: thinclient --> pxe to bridge
11:33
<paul0>
ogra, there's nothing in the official documentation
11:33
<lns>
cdealer, OH gotcha
11:33
<ogra>
paul0, because it wont work and nobody implemented it yet
11:33
<cdealer>
[lns]:: to the thinclient the bridge is transparent and the bridge is already configured with the network details
11:35
<paul0>
ogra, good point
11:36
<libmandan>
sbalneav: I just set SOUND=N in lts.conf. It eliminated the ALSA errors but still 50sec to start ff.
11:37
<sbalneav>
No idea then
11:37
<libmandan>
Thanks -
11:37
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: I will download and install the 7.10 desktop version, now I think I will have no problem, my test box is a simples desktop box.... but when I go to the server box with scsi, lot of ram, quad processors and stuff what wont work on the desktop version that i will have to fix ???
11:37libmandan has left #ltsp
11:38
<ogra>
libmandan, did you try to log in locally on the server to make sure its really ltsp related ?
11:39
<sbalneav>
cdealer: Don't know. It should probably all work, if not, probably just install the -server kernel.
11:39
The scsi should work anyway
11:39
Worst that may not work is that it may not see all the ram.

<cliebow_>
sbalneav:you ever play with tinyos: and ":motes" which wake up and transmit wirelessly??
11:40
<sbalneav>
I have 5 gigs on my servers, and all I have to do is install the desktop, then install the -server kernel, and everything works fine then.
11:40
cliebow_: No, sorry.
11:40
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: this server kernel you are saying is a pre-compiled one in the ubuntu cd? I cant just recompile the current kernel and activat the more ram option ?
11:42
<sbalneav>
Pre compiled. Package name is linux-image-server
11:42
Why would you EVER want to re-compile a kernel.
11:42
I haven't done that for years :)
11:43
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: hahaha Im from slackware ... Im used with this already LOL
11:43
<cliebow_>
sbalneav: i was just thinking about the pxe/wireless ltsp...
11:44
<cdealer>
[cliebow_]:: if you at any time make it work without bridges please let me know =D
11:44
<sbalneav>
Use the distro supplied ones: much easier to get support, and they've done all the hard work for you.
11:44
<cdealer>
[sbalneav]:: sure
11:45
<Blinny>
cdealer: You'll need to install ubuntu-desktop to do graphical X things on on the clients if you use the server version.
11:45sutula has joined #ltsp

<sbalneav>
I don't see wireless LTSP as ever being aything worth spending any development time on. The amount of effort required is astronomical, and there's such an easy solution for it by just using regular thin clients + wireless bridge. If you can afford to go wireless, you can afford the few extra bridges.

sbalneav:i suppose you are right...sigh...
11:48
<cdealer>
[Blinny]:: wow... i think you have a bit of lag lol
11:48
<Blinny>
cdealer: Yeah. It's called lunch.
11:48
<cdealer>
hehe
11:49
<Blinny>
cdealer: Anyway, unless you install ubuntu-desktop then your clients will only boot to a console and won't be able to log in.
11:49
<ogra>
nope, they will boot to X
11:50
but he wont get a login since /etc/X11/Xsession points nowhere
11:51
<Blinny>
ogra: Huh. Mine never booted to X. Maybe that was a separate issue.
11:51
<ogra>
likely
11:51
the X on the client is totally independent of whats installed in the servers root
11:52
<Blinny>
That's what I thought.
11:52
..until it didn't get to init 5 -- I'm sure my memory is missing a step.

Yikes! Big issue (for me at least :)... please help!! With the help of a friend, I found out that I was running the generic kernel on edubuntu 7.04, thus only seeing 3GB of my 6GB of RAM. So we installed the server kernel, ran updates, etc. On a server that we really weren't crashing on at all, we started crashing like crazy (2-3 times/day). I put the generic kernel back in, and we're back to functioning fine. Any thoughts?! I could really use some he

We have a release! woooooooooohoooooo!
14:15
sbalneav: congratulations! we made a clean Edubuntu install on one machine today and, assides from having to manually configure X, it works like a charm on the ThinCan. :)
14:16
<sbalneav>
Cool!
14:17
I wonder if we can supply a patched version of -video-amd
14:17
with your fix, so at least it'll come up in 800x600
14:17
<Q-FUNK>
bryce said that we could probably get it accepted, if we find and fix the bug.
14:18
but only as a patch, not as the full new upstream released as an update
14:18
yes it will, but that's only eliminating a null pointer.
14:18
<sbalneav>

Your patch that you have of just returning early if the flag's been set seems like a good interim solution to me.
14:20
<Q-FUNK>
indeed so, but Anti was telling me today where the real problem and solution would be. he just doesn't have time to implement it now.

<Q-FUNK>
would you happen to know any X guru with the motivation to try and fix this cleanly and to upgrade -amd up to the latext X core, including RandR 1.2 support?
14:31
<Gadi>
Q-FUNK: hey, there. I ran across this issue testing the thincan the other day, too
14:31
<Q-FUNK>
I mentioned it yesterday at our quarterly team meeitng and the company is willing to pay an outsider to do it, as we're currently short on staff, with one guy having just left us for a too-good-to-turn-down dream job
14:32
<Gadi>
have you posted what needs to be implemented somewhere to fix?
14:32
<Q-FUNK>
Gadi: sbalneav posted a fairly extensive amount of logs to document the bug and one guy at work at least partially figured out the solution
14:33
<Gadi>
does "Anti" have notes as to where the real prob lies?
14:33
and are those the comments on launchpad?
14:33* Gadi saw the bug
14:34
<Q-FUNK>
I pasted verbatim his report on the bug
14:34
<Gadi>
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-amd/+bug/140051
14:34
<Q-FUNK>
he further explained this morning that at least fixing that null pointer would prevent the crash, but not directly fix the real issue, which is failing to DDC the correct max rez.
14:35
ah, btw, we just got the first batch of gigabit-capable boards on Monday :)
14:36
we'r ecurrently updating the LinuxBIOS image with the correct payload to support the VIA Velocity.

<Gadi>
nice
14:37
and do you know when the problem was introduced?
14:37
<Q-FUNK>
we think it's related to the new X core
14:37
<Gadi>
is it because of the new xorg autodetectiong or is it because of new driver code?
14:37
ah
14:37
<Q-FUNK>
the new RandR broke a bunch of drivers that were not updated to support the new X
14:37
<Gadi>
lovely
14:39
<Q-FUNK>
it's the downside of modular X: if the team behind a specific driver is small or only at the random involvement level, their driver can easily fall behind, one API feature at a time, until it plain no longer works at all.
14:40
<Gadi>
let me shake some trees and see what falls out
14:40
<Q-FUNK>
the X team is aware that this new RandR breaks multiple displays and a bunch of other things, but they decide to release it anyhow, promising to get around polishing it before the next release in 6 months.
14:41
of cours,e it also requires people behind each chip driver to pull their own weight and keep their driver in sync with X core ABI/API changes.
14:42
<Gadi>
I see you working closely with Jordan Crouse
14:42
is he able to do anything?
14:42
<Q-FUNK>
he is but his main gig is being paid to code drivers for the OLPC
14:43
he is assigned by AMD on the OLPC project to provide any driver support they need.
14:43
<Gadi>
does olpc use lx?
14:43* Gadi thought they did
14:44
<Q-FUNK>
they do, but in a fixed rez, etc.
14:44
<Gadi>
is it just that they use an older X version?
14:44
ah
14:44
so, your patch helps him
14:44
but developing a proper driver does not
14:44
let me see if I can find someone who can do such things
14:45
<Q-FUNK>
developing a proper driver helps him too
14:45
he's open to merging useful code upgrades and cleanups
14:45
just that the driver already does what he needs for OLPC
14:45
<Gadi>
since we have oneof ur units, we're half-way there
14:45
right
14:48
goota run..

22:20
<Ziroday>
es
22:20
s/es/yes
22:21
<boog>
can you confirm that dhcpd is running on the server
22:21
<Ziroday>
one minute
22:21
btw, im using edubuntu 7.04
22:22
<boog>
are you running the server edition?
22:22
<Ziroday>
yeah
22:22
<boog>

do you have two nics on your server?
22:30
<Ziroday>
yes
22:30
<boog>
do you have a router on your network that is doing dhcp?
22:30
<Ziroday>
o
22:30
*no
22:30
except the server
22:32
<boog>
ok. forgive me for asking, but are you sure the nics are connected properly to the switch?
22:33
what are the addresses of the nics (sudo ifconfig)
22:36
You can test if a server is running by typing this command into the shell:
22:36
ps aux | grep dhc
22:40
you still there Ziroday?
