i guess i'll have to backport all the other fixes ...
00:15open_la1 has quit IRC
00:15open_lad has joined #ltsp
00:22
<vagrantc>
ok, well ... symlinking /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts works around the problem ... might introduce other issues ... but that's good enough for a backport

klausade: well, in sources.list: deb http://llama.freegeek.org/~vagrant/debian etch-backports/
02:28
<klausade>
vagrantc: ok, will test.
02:28
<vagrantc>
klausade: great :)
02:29
klausade: the one thing i've noticed so far not in the previous backports is ltspfs doesn't properly update /etc/mtab, and i have better luck with making /etc/mtab a symlink to /proc/mounts ... don't know if that messes other things up
02:30
klausade: haven't had time to incorporate you're kde patches
02:30
s,you're,your,
02:30
(actually, etch-backports is more updated than sid at the moment ... )

08:26
<Ryudo>
the fix has released in lauchpad
08:26

08:27
you need change one line
08:27
wait
08:27
vim /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/sbin/ldm
08:27
and in this line session_manager = session_manager+' && ltspfsmounter all cleanup'
08:27
you need change to session_manager = session_manager+' || ltspfsmounter all cleanup'
08:28
this fix my probleman
08:28
but my pendrive probleman has no resolved, i'm waiting for your help my friend gadi :D
08:29
did you can help me ?
08:30
<Gadi>
Ryudo: give me 2 minutes to get settled and caffienated
08:30
then, I can try :)
08:30
<Ryudo>
oh gadi thank you

:)

08:34
<Ryudo>
i looking
08:34
<Gadi>
1 is a replacement for: /opt/ltsp/i386/lib/udev/add_fstab_entry
08:34
2 is a replacement for: /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/udev/rules.d/88-ltsp.rules
08:34otavio has joined #ltsp
08:35
<Ryudo>
thank you i test it now
08:35
<Gadi>
You can try replacing those (backing up original) and reroll the image and see if it handles the unpartitioned drives
08:35* Gadi hasn't had a chance to test the code
08:35
<Gadi>
but, it masically should try to mount /dev/sd* if it is not already in ltspfs_fstab (hopefully)
08:36
<Ryudo>
look the fdisk -l , this pendrive is not partitioned ?
08:36
<ltsppbot>
"Ryudo" pasted "pendrive" (35 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/413
08:36
<Gadi>
right
08:37
those are not real partitions
08:37
the drive is mounted: /dev/sda
08:37
<Ryudo>
O_o
08:37
<Gadi>
rather than /dev/sda1
08:38
<Ryudo>
oh i understand
08:38
:D
08:38
But this problem only occurs on terminals only
08:38
<Gadi>
in 88-ltsp.rules, you may have to use "vfat" instead of "auto" on the line that reads:
08:39
ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="sd*", RUN+="add_fstab_entry %k auto"
08:39
(this was something I needed to test)
08:39
I would prefer "auto", if it works
08:39
<Ryudo>
i test for you, and i pass the feedback
08:39
<Gadi>
thanks
08:40
<Ryudo>
ok I am going to the laboratory for the testing
08:40
<Gadi>

i seek advice on what ltsp version is recommended for production use on debian etch.
09:34
this review basically says that LTSP 5 has issues on etch.
09:34
http://linuxagora.com/vbforum/showthread.php?t=749
09:35
although that review was still in June 2007.
09:36
so, anybody can tell me if the LTSP 5 situation has changed since then?
09:37
right now, i am inclined to use LTSP4.2 instead of LTSP 5.

09:45
<linux2>
can anyone help me out with LTSP on fedora 8
09:45
I am trying to use LTSP 4.2 but I can't get DHCPD to start or tftpd to either
09:45
well I can't find tftpd but it claims it is installed
09:47
I have never been able to get ltsp to work on any of my computers and I have been really wanting to try it
09:47
my current setup is a server with 2 nics in it. one has the internet going into it and the other is what i want the dhcp server to run on to host ltsp
09:47
is there some other way I should be doing it?
09:48
<sutula>
estong: If you use ltsp 4.2, you won't get much support
09:49
<linux2>
sutula: well i noticed how ltsp is supported more in debian etch
09:49
<sutula>
estong: I have an LTSP 5 installation working fine on Etch. I do use the current Etch backports to pick up some sound functionality.
09:49
<linux2>
do you think it would work with debian lenny?
09:50
<sutula>
linux2: I'm not sure what you mean by "it" in "it would work"
09:51
<linux2>
oh, sorry i mean ltsp
09:51* sutula was answering a question posed by estong before linux2 joined
09:51
<linux2>
ahh
09:51
just seemed to pertain to my question as well
09:52
sorry for butting in
09:52* linux2 backs away
09:52
<sutula>
linux2: I didn't have much trouble getting it working on Etch...would expect to have less on lenny
09:52
<linux2>
does your setup have two nics in it?
09:52
<sutula>
linux2: No, but lots of folks get that working
09:53
<linux2>
well my 'old' server uses debian etch
09:53
maybe i should just boot it up and give it a try
09:53
<sutula>
linux2: I'd suggest trying it (with ltsp 5) and asking here if you run into trouble
09:53* sutula nods
09:53
<linux2>
sutula: you just apt-get installed ltsp 5 right?
09:53
<sutula>
linux2: ltsp-server
09:54eharrison has quit IRC
09:54
<sutula>
linux2: There's usually some readme stuff in /usr/share/doc/ltsp-server
09:54
...to get you started
09:55
linux2: The Debian and Ubuntu versions are very closely related, so lots of the Ubuntu howto stuff is applicable
09:55
<linux2>
sutula: well i just booted up that system
09:56
and that system is a total mess let me tell you
09:56
it has problems left and right
09:56
so knowing me it is going to take a week to get it working
09:56
<sutula>
:) ...but then you can answer other people's questions here
09:57* sutula is no expert, but has had it running for almost a year
09:57
<linux2>
sutula: well if i can get it working on this system then i can finally get it working on a fresh install of debian lenny (just cause it is more up to date). I think it is finally time to get a new server
09:58
the dual 600MHZ just isn't cutting it anymore
09:59
<sutula>
linux2: Most of the Debian work has been done on lenny...occasionally, Etch-backports gets updated

10:01Guaraldo has joined #ltsp
10:01
<linux2>
it won't let me install anything because of this issue with tzdata
10:01Guaraldo has left #ltsp
10:02
<linux2>
it says /usr/sbin/tzconfig: No such file or directory
10:02Guaraldo has joined #ltsp

<linux2>
I don't know why it deleted it in the first place
10:03
<estong>
step 5 says " Boot a PXE capable machine and enjoy. "
10:03
what about etherboot?
10:04
<sutula>
linux2: Could you put an executable file in it's place (e.g. echo "!# /bin/bash" >/usr/sbin/tzconfig), then reinstall the tz package?
10:05* sutula doesn't know much about etherboot ...others here may
10:06
<estong>
ok. anyhow. thanks a lot.
10:06
gudnite folks.
10:06estong has quit IRC
10:07
<linux2>
sutula: well I am sure I could but i think the real issue is that in order to install tzdata you need tzdata
10:07
so you can never get it to work

Ryudo: did you try with "vfat"?
10:27
<ryudobr>
yes :(
10:27
i try again
10:27
wait a seconds
10:28
<Gadi>
please also log into a shell at the thin client when you plug in the USB device
10:29
you can debug a bit better there
10:30
<ryudobr>
ok
10:30

10:33
using dmesg
10:33
plugin the evil pendrive :D i have the same erro
10:33* vagrantc waves to otavio
10:33
<ryudobr>
sda: unknow partition table
10:34
and floppy no show erros on dmesg
10:34
<Gadi>
you are plugging into the client and running dmesg at the client shell?
10:34

do you see "sda" in /var/run/ltspfs_fstab
10:35
<ryudobr>
wait
10:37
the evil pendrive is in fstab :O
10:37
Gadi i disable gnome-volume-manager hi is the probleman ?
10:37
<Gadi>
maybe
10:38
on the server, is there a directory under: /media/$USER
10:38
<ryudobr>
but wich gnome-volume-manager disable
10:38
using original script all works fine
10:38
no
10:39
i not see the evil pendrive in /media/terminal01
10:39
only cdrom ( test)
10:41
and floppy doesnt work too :O
10:41
<Gadi>
ok, from the shell (ctrl-alt-f1) can you type: ssh -X -S /var/run/ldm<tab><tab> server "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /var/run/drives/usbdisk-sda add"
10:41
<ryudobr>
ok i try it ! wait a second
10:42
/var/run/ldm<tab><tab>
10:42
not exist
10:43

you're supposed to hit the tab key
10:43
not type it

right
10:44
what they said
10:44
:)
10:44* vagrantc knows a thing or two
10:44
<ryudobr>
this file
10:44
not in this directory
10:44
<Gadi>
and usbdisk-sda should be whatever mountpoint got written to /var/run/ltspfs_fstab
10:45
ryudobr: you need to be logged into X on ctrl-alt-f7
10:45
then switch back to screen 1
10:45
<ryudobr>
:O
10:45
i logged
10:46
in this directory have only file
10:46
ltspfs_fstab
10:46
<Gadi>
nah, you should have several files
10:46
in /var/run
10:46
one should start with ldm
10:47
<ryudobr>
i speak to you the files in the directory /var/run (temrinal)
10:48
console drives klogd ltspfs_fstab network syslogd.pid
10:48
not have ldm :(
10:49
<Gadi>
but, you are logged in through ldm on screen 7?
10:49
that is weird
10:50
<ryudobr>
yes
10:50
i'm logged :(
10:50
and speaking with you :O
10:50Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp

ryudobr: what version are you running? it used to be in /tmp
10:51
but that *feels* like a really long time ago ...
10:52
<ryudobr>
i'm running ltsp 5 on ubuntu feisty fawn
10:53
wich all updates :O
10:53
<Gadi>
ryudobr: at the shell, try typing: COLUMNS=500 ps -ef|grep ssh
10:53
<ryudobr>
/tmp/.ltspfs_socket
10:53
<Gadi>
and see if you can see what socket filenmae the session uses
10:53
<ryudobr>
is ?
10:53
<Gadi>
ah, that could be it
10:53
<ryudobr>
wait
10:53
i use that comand
10:54
<vagrantc>
that's it, i think
10:54
<ryudobr>
thats it !
10:55
/tmp/.ltspfs_socket
10:55
<Gadi>
ok, so you need to change the code in add_fstab_entry I sent
10:55
that one will work on gutsy :)
10:55
<ryudobr>
gadi gai
10:55
hehe
10:55
i try wait a second
10:55
<Gadi>
on feisty, you should edit the line that says:
10:55
for LDM_SOCKET in /var/run/ldm_socket_*; do
10:55
to say:
10:56
for LDM_SOCKET in /tmp/.ltspfs_socket; do
10:56
and the line that says:
10:56
SERVER=${LDM_SOCKET##*_}
10:56* vagrantc suspects the chroot might be in an inconsistant state
10:56
<Gadi>
just make it say:
10:57
<vagrantc>
like, some packages updated, some not
10:57
<ryudobr>
ok i try
10:57
<Gadi>
SERVER=server
10:57
<vagrantc>
otherwise, wouldn't all feisty ltsp installs have broken localdev ?
10:58
that's a pretty major breakage
10:58
<Gadi>
vagrantc: I gave him a replacement add_fstab_entry file to handle unpartitoned USB sticks
10:58
he is testing it
10:58
<vagrantc>
Gadi: ah!
10:58
got it
10:58
<ryudobr>
i'm beta tester for my friend gadi :P
10:58
<Gadi>
if it works, we can merge it in
10:58
:)
10:59
<vagrantc>
yay
10:59
Gadi: for handling usb sticks with funky partitioning?
10:59* Gadi nods
10:59
<vagrantc>
nice
10:59
<Gadi>
simple hack
10:59
<ryudobr>
ineed change SERVER=${LDM_SOCKET##*_} for SERVER=server ?
10:59
<vagrantc>
hackish hack?
10:59
<Gadi>
ryudobr: yeah
11:00plamengr has quit IRC
11:00
<ryudobr>
SERVER=server
11:00
if [ -S ${LDM_SOCKET} ]; then
11:00
ok ?
11:00
<Gadi>
vagrantc: well, if it doesnt succeed in the other ways, and is /dev/sd*, it will try to mount the device as the disk
11:01
ryudobr can you pastebot the whole thing?

i need luck
11:01
:P
11:01
<Gadi>
hehe
11:01
good luck
11:02
just make sure LDM_SOCKET is defined in the script
11:02
because I would have just changed the for loop line
11:02
for LDM_SOCKET in /tmp/.ltspfs_socket; do
11:02
if that field is empty, it will still be broken
11:03
<ryudobr>
gadi the correct name is /tmp/.ltspfs-socket

the evil pendrive only mount but dont see any files in

hmm
11:17
<ryudobr>
*empty* but he's is full
11:17
and the floppy dont work too
11:17
the floppy icon dont show on desktop

warren: hrm. it looks like you overwrote my changes to the mkdst-trunk branch ... i mean, you re-merged them, but i think the revision history was re-written...
11:26
<otavio>
vagrantc: but how is going your NM process?
11:26
<vagrantc>
otavio: i've been to busy working on ltsp to put much time into it :)
11:27
<otavio>
vagrantc: ah right. And your main interest is to be able to upload it, right?
11:27
<Gadi>
Ryudo: in 88-ltsp.rules, change sd* with sd?
11:27
<vagrantc>
otavio: main interest ... for debian-maintainer status?
11:28
<otavio>
vagrantc: both uploaded
11:28
vagrantc: yes
11:28
<vagrantc>
otavio: that's part of it... it seems like i'd have more time to actually work on NM if i didn't have to get sponsors for packages. at least, that's what i tell myself :)
11:29
otavio: also with simple-cdd and it would make it a little easier to get involved in some other projects...
11:31
<Ryudo>
no
11:31
i need change that ?
11:31
<Gadi>
yeah instead of "sd*" make it "sd?"
11:32
and try the USB again
11:32
er, reboot terminal
11:33
<otavio>
vagrantc: no problem to me
11:33
vagrantc: feel free to ask for it and then we add the headers on the packages
11:34
<Ryudo>
Gadi, suppose pen drive works ... The floppy no longer work?
11:35
<Gadi>
floppy should work - not sure why not yet
11:36
<Ryudo>
humm
11:48
<Gadi>
Ryudo: can you also pastebot the original add_fstab_entry and 88-ltsp.rulesfrom feisty?
11:48
that might help me figure out why floppies stopped working

you have jabber or msn ?

adadger1999: here is a tarball all of my personal hacks that have not yet been re-factored for the ltsp upstream: http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/devel/ltsp-hacks.tgz
12:03Ryudo has quit IRC
12:03

vagrantc: sent to newmaint ml
12:04
<vagrantc>
otavio: excellent :)
12:08
<otavio>
vagrantc: np
12:08
vagrantc: you're welcome
12:09
<vagrantc>
otavio: i actually released a backport of ldm and ltspfs before they even hit sid :)
12:10
<otavio>
ahaha cool
12:10
<vagrantc>
otavio: much easier to maintain the backport now that it's no longer debian native packages
12:10
otavio: and i know how to use dpatch :)
12:10
<otavio>
vagrantc: hehe yes
12:11
vagrantc: those are suppose to make our life easier, not worse ;-)
12:12
<vagrantc>
otavio: unfortunately the mount command in etch doesn't support "mount --move" properly ... but symlinking /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts is an ok workaround
12:12
<otavio>
vagrantc: ahh, right
12:14
vagrantc: so you're keeping around a etch branch with those minor changes?
12:14
vagrantc: or you've add a patch for it and kept it disabled on sid?
12:14
<vagrantc>
and there's still some issue with ldm on etch where it doesn't display the background image ... well, it will display it for a second, but then the background goes white
12:14
otavio: i've maintained a separate branch for the debian dir
12:14
<otavio>
ah right
12:15
<vagrantc>
otavio: which contains the dpatch patches ... need to make debian/control changes as well, so it probably makes sense to maintain a separate branch
12:15
<otavio>
yes ..
12:16
<vagrantc>
but other than those two bugs, the etch backport works pretty well ... only two patches to ltsp plus some dependency changes, just a rebuild for ldm, and a rebuild for ltspfs
12:16
don't know if symlinking /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts causes other issues...
12:29* sutula would like to see the background image problem fixed, but doesn't know where to start looking
12:37
<vagrantc>
sutula: without really understanding the code, i'm guessing it's some issue with layering ... i.e. when the foreground and background get displayed ... some sort of order issue
12:37
sutula: the really interesting thing is i've taken the same exact ldm binary, run it on lenny or sid, and it works ... so it's actually something outside of ldm itself
12:38
<sutula>
vagrantc: At that point, what exactly is running on the server? Just ldm?
12:38
<vagrantc>
sutula: ldm runs on the thin-client's X server ... :)
12:39
just to be clear about terminology ...
12:39
sutula: it's about the only thing running ... i would guess it's something in one of the depending libraries and how they render images ...
12:40
<sutula>
vagrantc: right...do we know that the X server thinks it has the right background image at that instant?
12:40* sutula wonders whether something in X decides to install the default background
12:40
<vagrantc>
sutula: i don't really know ... when it initially comes up, it appears to load the correct background image ... but then something else overwrites it
12:41
<sutula>
right...that's why I was wondering
12:41
<vagrantc>
and the ordering of which happens when must be different between lenny and sid
12:41BadMagic has quit IRC
12:42
<sutula>
vagrantc: If I get time to look at it tomorrow, what code is running, that installs the right background image?
12:42* sutula will try to trace through it

hi to everybody!!!
12:47
I have an easy question that can have a rtfm for answer... but I can't find where in the fm is it!!!
12:47
how can I allow vnc access to my server???
12:47
is there some howto?
12:48
I remeber to have made it 2 or 3 years ago... but I can't find again the documentation
12:48
<vagrantc>
sutula: yes
12:48
<sutula>
knito: Which distro?
12:48
<PerfDave>
knito: You want your LTSP clients to access the server over VNC instead of XDMCP?
12:48
<knito>
fedora 8
12:50
My server must allow some workstations and I want to access it via vnc from other ones that need to run window$
12:54
<cliebow_>
knito:look at nx
12:54
<sutula>
vagrantc: OK, I see the ldm code that starts the server, etc. If I get the chance tomorrow, I'll play around a little
12:55
<vagrantc>
sutula: that would be great
12:55
<sutula>
vagrantc: Is that code (the ldm source) going to continue forward, or is it getting replaced by something else?
12:55
<vagrantc>
sutula: the ldm code seems to be going forward
12:55* sutula is asking because he thinks that's also where the autologin stuff would need to be added/fixed
12:55
<sutula>
...another of my pet desires
12:55
<vagrantc>
sutula: hasn't had active development for a month or two, but i wouldn't say it's stalled or anything
12:56
sutula: yeah, we need autologin for freegeek as well
12:56
<cliebow_>
Scottie: where are you??
12:56
<vagrantc>
sutula: well, actually, we need mixed autologin/named logins
12:56
sutula: rather than autologin, more like anonymous logins ...
12:56
<johnny>
timed autologin ..
12:57
<vagrantc>
johnny: no, i don't want to have to log out just to log in
12:57
<sutula>
vagrantc: I'll look at both...with any luck, could have a patch or two
12:57
<vagrantc>
sutula: source code is on launchpad ...
12:57
<sutula>
vagrantc: is "apt-get source" close enough?
12:57
<vagrantc>
sutula: https://code.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/
12:57
sutula: for the moment
12:57
<sutula>
k
12:58
<vagrantc>
sutula: though if you could work with bzr branches, it would make it easier to merge changes
12:58
<sutula>
vagrantc: If I put too many impediments in the way, I'll never look at it, so will start with current Debian source
12:59
<vagrantc>
sutula: sounds great :)
12:59* vagrantc forgets that not everyone likes bzr
12:59* sutula doesn't have an opinion...just doesn't know anything about it
13:00
<Gadi>
anyone know how to get the requesting IP out of inetd?
13:00
or is it completely dependent upon the service?

abadger1999, I'm here for a short while

warren: I'm running into anaconda bugs.
13:02
<warren>
abadger1999, like?
13:02
<abadger1999>
it's looking for the wrong release notes file on the server.
13:02
<warren>
abadger1999, oh, the turbogears dependency conflict?
13:02
<vagrantc>
Gadi: that's actually caused you problems? the way we're doing it, it spawns a new connection every time i thought ... so even if the old connection gets disconnected and stays running, it should stary a totally new, unrelated one
13:02
<warren>
abadger1999, and it bombs out because of release notes?
13:02
<abadger1999>
No. That one was documented enough
13:02
Yep.
13:02
<warren>
damn
13:03
<abadger1999>
Eric says he created a symlink to work around it on his server.
13:03
<warren>
abadger1999, well, maybe reusing the livecd kickstart thing might be a good option...
13:03
<abadger1999>
Let me see if I can fix this first.
13:03
<Gadi>
vagrantc: well, I have seen it cause problems with folks in here, but also I would like a way to track which clients are mounted to which images
13:03
that way, I can safely round-robbin them when upgrades happen
13:04
<abadger1999>
warren: It's close to done if we can get around the errors.
13:04
<warren>
abadger1999, eharrison: did you figure out the missing buildreq's of ldm and ltspfs?
13:04
(if not, I'll work on it now)
13:04
<cliebow_>
Howdy Eric by the way!
13:05
<Gadi>
vagrantc: we don't really address the 'upgrade' issue in production (ie making sure that you can replace the image safely and that running thin clients haven't had their rootfs taken out from under them)

Gadi: you should be able to actually remove the file with nbd, and as long as the inode is still open, it should be fine ...
13:06
<Q-FUNK>
hm
13:06
<vagrantc>
Gadi: i've actually done that ...
13:07knito has quit IRC
13:08
<vagrantc>
Gadi: and if nbd-server doesn't actually hold the inode open (which it should, or at least have an option to) we could maybe implement a workaround in nbdrootd/nbdswapd
13:09
<Gadi>
vagrantc: you have actually remove the image and replaced it with another and the client doesnt hiccup?
13:10
<vagrantc>
Gadi: hmmm... only tried it with some tests, not actually running a thin-client
13:10
<Gadi>
heh, hence the use of the word "production" ;)
13:11
<vagrantc>
so you've encountered problems in the real world, i'm guessing :)
13:11
<Gadi>
in fact, as ltsp-update-image deletes first and regenerates second, I cannot imagine running that command in production
13:11* vagrantc still likes nfs
13:12
<Gadi>
well, as we have no way of cycling the power of the thin clients remotely (and it would be rude, anyway to do so)
13:12
I would like a round-robin appraoch
13:12
where we create a second image and as clients reboot they grab the second and release the first
13:12* vagrantc has asked enough questions and will leave Gadi to work magic
13:12
<Gadi>
then the first is deleted when all clients are off of it
13:13
it seems a bit safer
13:13
<vagrantc>
yeah, i always thought it was silly to delete first
13:13
<Gadi>
yeah, NFS didnt have these issues
13:13
but, we seem to have kinda swept them under the rug thus far
13:13
:)
13:13* Gadi wants to start addressing them a bit
13:14
<vagrantc>
make new image, move old image aside, move new image, delete old image
13:14
Gadi: NFS is still the default in debian
13:14
<Gadi>
if what you say wrt inodes is correct
13:15* Gadi is suspect of that assertion
13:15
<vagrantc>
Gadi: the only issue i don't know is if nbd-server actually holds the inode open ...
13:15
<Gadi>
tho would love it to be true
13:15
<vagrantc>
but it *seemed* to in my initial tests
13:15
<Gadi>
but, even if it does, don't you have to consider the inodes of the files within the image?
13:15
they would all change completely, no?
13:16
or does that not matter to the running kernel on the client?
13:16
as nbd handles it??
13:16
<vagrantc>
Gadi: my theory is that if you move an image to another location, the nbd-server will instantaneously be using the new location ... the inodes, from the client's point of view, will not have changed one bit
13:17
<Gadi>
ok - but at what point can you delete the old image?
13:17
you need to know when nobody is using it anymore
13:17
<vagrantc>
well, you can delete an image, and as long as a file is holding the inode open, it won't really go away
13:17
<Gadi>
lovely
13:17
:)
13:17
<vagrantc>
it will just be difficult/impossible to access the inode
13:18
for any new processes
13:18
<Gadi>
and you can have a whole collection of inodes filling up
13:18
<vagrantc>
you can end up with issues of "why is my disk full" because you can't actually see the files
13:18
<Gadi>
I guess we can go on the theory that the kernel has infinite inodes available for use
13:19
right

13:20
<vagrantc>
if you have long-running thin-clients and you regularly update the images, you might run into trouble with running out of inodes ...
13:20
<Gadi>
right
13:20
<vagrantc>
and then you'll probably reboot the computer and everything will be good again :)
13:20

ah, the M$ approach

yes, wretched, isn't it

13:21

i know this isn't an ubuntu chan, but is anyone here on the support team at canonical? I'm looking into a support contract and was just curious

you don't want both running at the same time

dnsmasq and dhcp3-server is listen in port 67

they should - they are both dhcp servers

dont do that

<^Migs^>
is there such a thing as wireless LTSP?
15:05
<PerfDave>
^Migs^: It's quite easy to do wireless LTSP-style things, but it's difficult to do a true diskless solution over wireless, since most BIOSes can't set up the wireless card. I think you might be able to do it with LinuxBIOS though.
15:06
<jammcq>
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/WirelessLTSPClientsUsingAnEthernetBridge
15:06
<^Migs^>
I'm just thinking of how I could connect laptops to an LTSP server
15:06
so basically these devices would already have a hard drive
15:07
<PerfDave>
^Migs^: You can boot an OS off their internal hard drive, and do XDMCP over wireless to a server, but that's not really LTSP.
15:07
<^Migs^>
but not a NIC I can alter
15:08
would it basically act like a thin client, though?
15:08
I guess it kind of wouldn't
15:08
<PerfDave>
Well, the apps would all be running on the server.
15:09
<^Migs^>
actually, that would probably be okay, since I'd want to be able to boot the laptops locally, too.
15:09
<PerfDave>
All you'd be running on the client is the stuff to set up the wireless, X and a display manager.
15:09
<^Migs^>
er, access local apps on the laptop
15:09
<PerfDave>
Well, you couldn't easily do that with XDMCP logins.
15:09
Not at the same time as running stuff remotely anyway.
15:09
Either way, it seems that LTSP is not your solution, though your solution will use some of the technologies that LTSP does.
15:10
<^Migs^>
LTSP is my solution. I have to figure out how to make the laptops work with it.
15:10
even if I can't do it wirelessly.

the two in the server?
15:52
<vagrantc>
mathesis: you can use just dnsmasq if you configure it correctly
15:52
<warren>
vagrantc, it might be that way in the source repo, but the way it is installed into a package will have a hard coded name and not use lsb_release -i
15:52

yes.. it works awesomely

15:53
<warren>
vagrantc, single package you mean?
15:53

15:53
warren: well, single package on a single server
15:53
<johnny>
mathesis, yes, i just ignored that
15:54
and let it install
15:54
<warren>
vagrantc, I understand your desire here, however in our case we have to support arbitrary names that lsb_release might report.
15:54
vagrantc, RHEL, Centos, Oracle, who knows what else.
15:54
vagrantc, we shouldn't have to hard code a bunch of names
15:54
<vagrantc>

16:42
yes
16:42

warren: i also don't like the idea of mkdst having the version in release.conf ...
16:43
we talked about it some in the past
16:43
<warren>
vagrantc, release.conf can parse it from anywhere else
16:43
vagrantc, saw my mess of reading it from configure.ac in ldm?
16:43
<vagrantc>
ah, yes. i saw your commits parsing it from some of the autotools stuff
16:44
<warren>
vagrantc, the idea is mkdst cannot possibly know various arbitrary places different types of source may use
16:44
vagrantc, so release.conf is the standard, and it may parse from elsewhere.
16:44
<vagrantc>
warren: i think we need to figure out who is going to make releases, and figure out how they get done.
16:44alienBOB has left #ltsp
16:45

warren: ok, that makes sense. my main objection was to hard-coding the version in release.conf ...
16:45
<warren>
vagrantc, agreed
16:45
vagrantc, it wasn't hard coded anywhere else at the time.
16:45
vagrantc, (mkdst itself)
16:45
vagrantc, maybe mkdst (the script) should hard code it within itself, so it can report what version it is.
16:45
sigh
16:45
I'll make that change now.
16:46
<vagrantc>
i think some of the earlier versions had it hard-coded in release.conf ... like in ldm ... but you sort of fixed that ... although there is a version string hard-coded somewhere else now ...
16:46
i gotta get these build failures for ltspfs fixed ... stupid mistake on my part.

vagrantc, ok... no more hard coded version in release.conf. It is within mkdst itself, which has the benefit of being able to report its own version when run.

vagrantc, btw, sorry about snapping at you last night. I was extremely exhausted and should have stopped working hours earlier. =)
