vagrantc: ok, but my questions is, of version if /~ogra/ltsp/ltsp-mainline ltsp-YOUR-DISTRO have all update making in ubuntu
|00:01||hersonl1 has joined #ltsp|
BGomes_: no, ogra's ltsp-mainline branch does not contain all updates made in ubuntu
vagrantc: that is not good :(
well, it is not upstream
BGomes_: where did you find that branch?
it probably needs to be updated
vagrantc: I am start integration this script in slackware, but I will woking with upstream
vagrantc: I want working with upstream
well, upstream is, for the moment: http://www.ltsp.org/~sbalneav/ltsp/
BGomes_: that's a bzr branch
there's a separate branch for ldm
|00:07||BGomes has quit IRC|
these branches were just put together in the last week or two
vagrantc: humm tanks, I will see it now
|00:07||BGomes_ is now known as BGomes|
BGomes_: where are you from?
vagrantc: I'm from brazil
vagrantc: and u ?
BGomes: usa ...
BGomes: two of the ltsp developers in debian are also brazillian
|00:09||IRCzito has joined #ltsp|
vagrantc: We meet jim em scoot in FISL6, and like so mutch of ltsp project
BGomes: Who are they?
IRCzito: see this http://www.ltsp.org/~sbalneav/ltsp/
BGomes: otavio and stratus
BGomes: although both of them haven't worked on it in a while ... there's a few other brazilians involved with ltsp in debian too
vagrantc: it's good
BGomes: free software is very strong is brazil
vagrantc: Who make the initrd of ubuntu?
BGomes: what program makes it ... or ?
vagrantc: who wrote initrd script ubuntu?
BGomes: i believe the original author of initramfs-tools was jeff bailey
vagrantc: suse (kiwi-ltsp) have many diffs of ubuntu init scripts
BGomes: i think ogra wrote the ltsp-nbd script
BGomes: yes, the suse stuff is very different
vagrantc: and slackware, we will write more simple init, kiwi-ltsp is strong
vagrantc: the bzr http://www.ltsp.org/~sbalneav/ltsp/ is more specific for debian
vagrantc: ow ok :D
IRCzito: the debian directory is there because sbalneav wants it there
IRCzito: all the code is in the dist directory
sbalneav: i see, sory

What exactly do mean with "client"? A thin client connected to an LTSP-Server?
|11:00||DonSilver has joined #ltsp|
yes, the client connected to my server. When I switch on the client it shows the ubuntu gauge, but drops back to busybox after some seconds
Are there any X-related modifications in the lts.conf?

tuunix: The lts.conf in /opt/i386?
tuunix: the file dioes not contain any uncommented line...
tuunix: can I just copy /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/doc/ltsp-client-core/examples/lts.conf ?
If the options set in this file apply to you, the yes. Otherwise it would be a bad idea.
Does the busybox shell allow you to have a look at the Xorg.log which resides in /var/log?
Uh oh, forget it, if your client presents you a busybox shell, it is most likely a kernel related problem.
if you are getting the busybox shell, it means that the root filesystem couldn't be mounted
|11:18||DonSilver has quit IRC|
to see what's going on, find the pxe config file and remove the 'quiet splash' from the end of the boot line
lts.conf is fetched via tftp. What copies it to /etc/lts.conf on the client? My lts.conf isn't making it to the client.
then reboot the client and watch what happens
the pxe.cponfig file on the client?
upro: no, on the server
look for pxelinux.cfg/default
it's somewhere in /var/lib/tftpboot
jammcq: ok, got it. Should I reve "quiet"?
yes, and splash
jammcq: and now boot the client?
jammcq: hold on
|11:22||DonSilver has joined #ltsp|
jammcq: fu***, it boots and runs like a charm... and I didn't do anything apart from commenting splash and quiet...
|11:26||Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp|
|11:26||edgarin has quit IRC|
Reminds me of an NFS-related problem I once had with a client. Most of the time it failed to fetch its root filesystem and the only error message I got was "short read 0 < 28"...
tuunix jammcq thanks for your help!
I guess it's jammcq's karma ;)
The Edubuntu 7.10 release notes state that LDM now features "mutliple server support"? What does this actually mean?
Is there some kind of load balancing support for multiple LTSP servers?
you can have multiple servers, and the user can choose which one they want to log in to
also, some crude load balancing
How do I configure it?
umm, dunno. I didn't work on that
Well, since I failed to google some information regarding this, I guess I have to inspect LDM's source code...sigh...
Crap. When I net boot my i386 machines it's requesting /lts.conf over tftp, not /ltsp/i386/lts.conf
What tell the server what lts.conf file to fetch?
the cleint, I mena
|11:36||* outofrange needs first cup of coffee|
|11:39||DonSilver has quit IRC|
I don't know the implementation details, but I think the client first tries to fetch its lts.conf via tftp and forgets about the other locations if it finds one.
Hum. Confusing. there's not lts.conf in the root (wireshark shows file not found from the tfpt server). Then it doesn't try any other file.
|11:41||DonSilver has joined #ltsp|
The docs indicate that the lts.conf should be in the root, too. But it's picking up my lts.conf in my powerpc dir.
|11:42||* outofrange scratches his head|
Also, if you like to use the lts.conf within the client chroot, you have to rebuild the SquashFS image every time you make modifications to it.
Yes, I understand that.
Ok sorry, I just tried to help :)
I'm going to book a powerpc client and see what wireshark reports
Know of a way to do a reverse tunnel from a client so I can get a shell on the client from another machine? That is, w/o installing sshd on the client.
why not install sshd?
|11:45||DonSilver has quit IRC|
I could -- and just not have it start by default.
jammcq: do you know the reason for the squashfs instead of just NFS mounting the chroot?
|11:47||DonSilver has joined #ltsp|
It's way faster...
And normally less error prone...normally...
Why faster -- because it's compressed over the wire?
yes, much faster
Yes, and much less overhead.
NFS can't be compressed?
|11:49||tux_440volt has quit IRC|
|11:49||DonSilver has quit IRC|
Interesting. So the powerpc client only requests ltsp/powerpc/lts.conf and my i386 machine only requests /lts.conf
NFS preformance sucks if many clients simultanously request many small files, which is the case if the clients access their init scripts
|11:50||DonSilver has joined #ltsp|
Maybe the two initrd have different paths for that file.
The scripts used in the initrd reside in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/ (in the respective chroot environments), if you want to inspect that further.
There's a script for rebuilding the initrd, I assume? (although I'm just moving my lts.conf now).
|11:58||frownix has joined #ltsp|
Yes, it's called update-initramfs.
It looks for scripts the aforementioned location and integrates them into the final inird image.
That how things like dm-crypt and LVM2 get integrated into the early boot phase.

I move lts.conf to tftp root and then symlinked it into powerpc. tftp reported file not found. rm and then copied it and it works.
Yet, my yaboot.conf is symlinked.
Both are fetched with tftp so you would think symlinks either work or they don't. Odd.

i am searching software for point of sale
well.. this isn't really the right channel for that
we've been using a custom one where i deploy ltsp tho
it's focused on books and food atm
i'd like to know of one that works better and is more reliable tho, if it exists
hmm...that's badly stated
cuz it is reliable, since the original developer still works at the place we use it
but it'd be nice if we had one that already had a strong development team behind it
