01:21* vagrantc realizes that qemu and virtualbox both support vmware disk formats
01:21
<vagrantc>
probably should have just used that
01:54
<johnny>
virtualbox is great
01:54
altho i've just ran into wanting more than 2GB ram ;)
01:54
when i run eclipse, vmware, and then bunch of normal apps..
01:54

we've set up a debian tftp... let's say "server"... that enables clients to boot from network (for example clonezilla). Is it possible to provide a suse/(ed)ubuntu boot option?

Hello, folks... I've been lurking here for a while the past month or so. May I ask a quick (I hope) question?
10:25
I work for an organization that tries to help out non-profits with their IT. So I have been installing servers running LTSP on Ubuntu Feisty.
10:26
I've been running into problems with modern machines- laptops, mostly. And my question is about getting LTSP to work with these machines.

Case in point- A Dell Inspiron 6400 Laptop with ATI Radeon X1300- it seems to choke as X comes up.
10:31
I did a sudo chroot on the server and installed the ATI proprietary driver. My question is, do I need to do anything else after this step?
10:32
Like ltsp-update-kernel, etc? Or is installing the driver in the chroot environment sufficient?
10:33
or should I have waited until people were awake to ask this question? :)

Hi. I recently upgraded my church's LTSP server from Debian Sarge to Debian Etch. When I did, all the machines that were netbooting using floppies from rom-o-matic quit net booting
11:20
I made new floppy images (the ones I had been using before were a couple years old) but that did not fix it.

Can anyone point me at what might be going wrong?

npman: Good call
11:30
<vagrantc>
warren: so, i've got a debian lenny image that works in both virtualbox and boots to qemu ...
11:30
warren: and it boots with a virtualbox thin client, at least
11:31
warren: seems like the common disk format is vmware's vmdk format...

Do I need to do an ltsp-update-kernel or something like that after adding modules...?

<ltspbot>
jammcq: sbalneav was last seen in #ltsp 4 weeks, 1 day, 12 hours, 21 minutes, and 40 seconds ago: <sbalneav> I guess the idea is: ship it in the safe, encrypted mode, and then if people decide they can be less safe, in exchange for speed, then they can, easily.
22:28
<vagrantc>
wow
22:29
warren: i'm guess you don't need that disk image anymore
22:30
i haven't compressed it, but uncompressed, it came out to about 1.5GB

<mathesis>
vagrantc: http://pastebin.ca/85288 <<<---- steps for install ltsp 5?
22:44

22:45
<vagrantc>
mathesis: i have NO IDEA what is at the URL you posted.
22:46
certainly not installing ltsp5 on debian
22:46
