since http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/DownLoads , gives no indication. I want to confirm that ltsp0.99debian11 is indeed the ltsp 5.0? Thx in advance.
11:05
I install it from debian etch (4.0)

Q-FUNK: "g" is Gadi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13:48
<Gadi>
hey there, Q-FUNK
13:48
just thinking about you
13:48
was reading this:
13:48
http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS8339641893.html
13:49
talks about how GSW BIOS can be made to be difficult for certain OS's on purpose ;)
13:49
but, then, you guys roll your own
13:49
:)
13:49
<Q-FUNK>
yup
13:50
however, Jordan already suspects that GSW might have a programming error in their VSA implementation
13:50
<Gadi>
yeah, he helped me a lot yesterday
13:51
we got the gx driver up to where the lx is
13:51
and found out my GeodeROM BIOS lies about the presence of a flatpanel
13:52
you wouldn't want to get Bart under NDA and pay him to fix the bug in the GSW BIOS, would you?
13:53
<Q-FUNK>
that might be complicated
13:53
I'll find out more on tuesday, once everybody is back into office
13:54
<Gadi>
k - worth a shot :)
13:54
<Q-FUNK>
paying him would be the easy part, but getting him under our GSW NDA might be more difficult
13:55
<Gadi>
so, how closely do you think these BIOSes are tied to their boards?
13:55K_O-Gnom has quit IRC
13:56
<Gadi>
Im gonna try swapping a GSW for a GeodeROM
13:56
<rjune_>
Gadi!
13:56
are you working today?
13:56
<Gadi>
juney!
13:56
I just made it in to the office (my wife finally let me go) ;)
13:56
<rjune_>
personally, I would take the wife.
13:57
<Gadi>
yeah, well. I never get such perfect days to get stuff done
13:57
<rjune_>
Isn't hannakuh around now?
13:57
heh
13:57
<Gadi>
2 weeks ago
13:57
<rjune_>
so close, but not that close
13:57
<Gadi>
early this year (its a leap year)
13:58
<rjune_>
I thought next year was the leap year
13:58
<Gadi>
nope - this one - we add an extra month after next month
13:58
March-ish
13:58
passover will be late
13:58
<rjune_>
You have your own calandar just for Jews?
13:59
<Gadi>
you'd expect any less?
13:59
<rjune_>
nope.
13:59
<Gadi>
haven't you heard of Jewish time? ;)
13:59
we're always 20 mins late
13:59
:D
13:59
<rjune_>
I did not know that
13:59
I'm really slacking on learning about Judaism, I'm a piss poor honorary Jew.
14:00
<Q-FUNK>
heh
14:00
<Gadi>
don't be so hard on urself
14:00
<rjune_>
Q-FUNK: I'm even three quarters of a man.
14:00
<Q-FUNK>
Gadi: somewhat closely. IIRC we even build for specific DDRAM
14:01
<rjune_>
hey, at least I know what Hannukah is.
14:01
<Gadi>
Q-FUNK: well, lets hope we don't smell silicon :D
14:01
<Q-FUNK>
hey! I figured that much already.
14:01
I'm not a complete idiot!
14:01
some parts are missing...
14:02
<Gadi>
ok... who stole my baby phillips?
14:03
<rjune_>
I thought your baby was Gideon
14:03
<Q-FUNK>
phillips. screw, drive her.
14:05
Gadi: oddly enough, IIRC, LinuxBIOS is a tad smarter, in that it can be made to test for different DDRAM configurations and to live with that.
14:05
<rjune_>
Gadi: I forget, what is your son's name?
14:05
ben, right?
14:05
<Gadi>
#1: Beni (Benjamin Shimon) #2: Ilan (Ilan Yaacov)
14:06
<rjune_>
That's right, it's been so long, you've got two now.
14:07
<Gadi>
how are all the little juneys?
14:07
lots of presents everywhere?
14:07
<rjune_>
of coures
14:07
Merlin's playing with an RC car at the moment
14:09
<Gadi>
col
14:09
er, cool
14:09
I had one of those
14:09
I think I only recently threw it out
14:09
it had an old-school board
14:09
discretes and everything
14:09
<rjune_>
it's a little matchbox size bumblebee
14:10
I moved up to living in three dimensions
14:10
sounds like you had quite a car
14:11
<Gadi>
well, it wasn't a lot
14:11
ferrari testarosa, iirc
14:11
<rjune_>
nifty
14:11
<Gadi>
but, now that I know what all the circuits do, its a lot more interesting
14:11
electronics have come a long way since then
14:12
speaking of which, swapping BIOses didnt work
14:12
no POST
14:12
:(
14:12
oh well
14:12
just an experiment
14:12
<rjune_>
Get yourself a helicopter.
14:13
<Gadi>
first, I need to get myself some time
14:13
second, energy
14:13
3rd, a helicopter
14:13
:)
14:13* Gadi always wanted one
14:14
<rjune_>
You could always hire somebody to do your work for you
14:14
<Gadi>
heh - once I thought I could just write a script
14:14
that never panned out
14:14
<rjune_>
heh
14:16
I thought you did have an employee now
14:16
<Gadi>
we have several
14:17
and contractors
14:17
problem is, I still have lots of work
14:17
:)
14:17
<rjune_>
heh
14:17
management? or still technical?
14:18
<Gadi>
if you have any fat men invading your home, give him a google map to my house, and tell him to bring a suitcase full of unmarked bills
14:18* Gadi is all of the above - the perfect storm of stress
14:18
<rjune_>
You're fat?
14:19
<Gadi>
heh
14:19
<rjune_>
when did that happen? you were pretty skinny last I saw you
14:19
<Gadi>
I meant the management and techincal
14:19
:)
14:19
<rjune_>
ah
14:22
Lucky you
14:22
I avoid management type stuff whenever I can

15:51
wihoout using a thin client?
15:52lalito has quit IRC
15:52
<Gadi>
there are many ways to bring up a Linux desktop, but none would be LTSP
15:53
too late
15:53

i have a problem with tftpd
23:45
in the client tfpd no loading
23:46
"TFTPD............"
23:47
<ari_stress>
dr_byson: does the client gets IP from dhcp?
23:48
<dr_byson>
yes, gets
23:48
sorry for my english , im from chile
23:49
<ari_stress>
sorry for mine too, i'm from south east asia :D
23:49
well,
23:49
does the client boot from PXE?
23:49
<dr_byson>
yes
23:50dniel has quit IRC
23:50
<ari_stress>
it could mean that the PXE is not supported by ltsp
23:50
i have several clients that behave like that
23:50zodman has joined #ltsp
23:50
<ari_stress>
we need to use a boot floppy instead
23:51
<dr_byson>
mmm , my client boot drom PXE and gets ip
23:51
but TFTP no loagin
23:51
loading*
23:53
this appear " TFTPD .........."
23:53
<ari_stress>
yes, the symptom is like that, get the ip, but failed to load the kernel image in tftp
23:54
<dr_byson>
yes ,
23:55
<ari_stress>
very frustating
23:55
<dr_byson>
maybe , the configuration tftp
23:55
<ari_stress>
oh ok, i remember
23:55
check this:
23:55
<dr_byson>
ok
23:55
<ari_stress>
http://linuxagora.com/vbforum/showthread.php?t=860
23:55
one of the suggestion is to:
23:56
Modify /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default. (This modification is for PXE booting only.) Add the following text to the end of the "option=" line:
23:56
"-r blksize" {do not enter quotation marks}
23:56
Also in /etc/inetd.conf:
23:56
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot -r blksize
23:56
i havent tried that, though
23:59
<dr_byson>
mmmm /etc/inetd.cong this is not created
23:59
i have archlinux
