vagrantc: cool, congratulations!
highvoltage: still got some work on my end for debian developer status ...
vagrantc: I hope you get there soon though
sutula: i'm testing the new packages to make sure they didn't totally break ...

getting cdrom icon that won't go away even though it gets unmounted
vagrantc, is there a way to isolate the devices from the server so they clients won't see?
unless wanted that is
johnny: could you be more specific?
i meant storage devices
cds,usb drives, etc
johnny: what is behaving in a way that you don't like, and how would you like it to be improved?
hi,everybody. Who installed ltsp4.2 on Slackware 11 ?
devices plugged into the server
show up on the clients
|00:47||* vagrantc wonders where this is going|
hursand, finding ltsp 4.2 folks in general isn't easy in this chat
and on slackware, less so
vagrantc, don't you see that as a problem?
am i missing something?
johnny: i see that as something people have worked very hard to achieve
well, it could be personal data
johnny: ah, wait.
johnny: i see what you're saying.
i wonder if there's a way to make some stuff show up, but not others
stuff mounted by the main desktop user shouldn't show up
or any desktop user on that machine rather
but i can imagine a big HD perhaps being made available
right. i know bugs have been reported, and newer versions of gnome should be addressing that issue for gnome, at least.
or such things
that sad part about that is...
is that many folks are upset at the way redhat/novell are managing these very important projects
|00:51||hursand has left #ltsp|
i hear folks in other distros always complaining about hal and policykit, and all these rewrites and code drops
sutula: i went ahead and put the updated ltspfs backport in place
vagrantc: OK...I'll give it a whirl (but not tonight)
sutula: thanks for figuring this stuff out :)
vagrantc: np...part of the "community"...we all benefit
sutula: indeed :)

Hi. What command replaces ltspinfo ?
|04:51||hursand has joined #ltsp|
ogra: better to keep the code backward-compatible, as much as possible.
ah, right, i always forget about backports
|04:52||* ogra cries for the time when ubuntu didnt support that|
backports, stable release updates .... life was so easy once ....
|04:55||hursand has left #ltsp|
to change the resolution to all clients I use X_MODE = 1024x768 ?
in the [default] section, yes
ltspinfo doesnt exist anymore?
for what exactly ?
ltspinfo queried many services
info about the user machine
you can qery each separately

autodita1: I'm not the expert in that area, but when others have asked, they've been told that it's safe to just unplug them a few seconds after they're done flashing
IIRC, there isn't currently a way to unmount them

autodita1, gutsys nautilus is patched to not have an unmount option at all for ltsp devices, as sutula said, you can just pull them out, what filemanager do you use there to get an unmount option
if you open the device, right click in the opened device window -> unmount volume ...
how does ltsp insurte filesystem consistency of removable devices?
make shure the umounted filesystem isn't being corrupted by just pulling the plug?
|09:13||rjune_ has quit IRC|
its actually only mounted during rw operations ...
all the other time its unmounted
(even though it appears to be mounted ... thats the magic of ltspfs :) )
(you dont need LOCAL_STORAGE=yes btw sound and localdev are set by default in gutsy)
(actually you shouldne use lts.conf at all unless you have problems or need to override any autodetection)
ah. that's why reading and writing to usb devices is a *aehem* liittle slow, it mounts and unmounts the device when its waiting for data, e.g. a directory listing?
it only unmounts after 2 seconds of inactivity
i'm pretty sure it's 2 seconds
where does ltspfsd log to? can't find any logging info on the client ....
2 seconds. hmmm. in combination with the more than suboptimal copy time estimation of nautilus this is quite dangerous, don't you think?
autodita1: It's been working well for me. What do you see as a problem?
To me, it seems more unsafe to require the user to perform an action before removing it...at least there's more chance of corruption in that model
|09:43||cdealer__ has joined #ltsp|
hey ... to boot the client with X and Shell I must place SCREEN_07 = startx and SCREEN_03 = shell on lts.conf ??
sutula: for example, if i copy 60MB to the sdcard on my mobile, nautilus' progress bar indicates that the copy is finished after 2 secs, i pull the plug of the mobile and the data is corrupt.
|09:47||cliebow2 has joined #ltsp|
cdealer__, with ltsp5 it should be ldm instead of startx but yes
AH, ok, this is why the login window was not showing :D
autodita1: Is there a light on the card? I'd want to wait a few seconds after the light goes out.
sutula: no, there isn't.
Maybe we need a software "light" then
sutula, no, we need the ltspfs-hal integration, so the apps that are already there can care for it :)
if your session sees the device actually instead of a mountpoint it can perform info actions on it which are currently not possible
ogra: you dont know of any megaraid issues with gutsy? googling has brught me nopthing..
we could even have mount/unmount options with that ...
cliebow2, no megaraid anywhere nar me so no,i havent heard anything
of course, this is a bug of nautilus. but if i'd try to umount the device on a fat client, the kernel would correctly prohibit umounting of volumes that have copy processes going on.
k..my ltsp server runs a day then crashes..with megaraid error..no commands will work except init 6
|09:53||* sutula encourages autodita1 to contribute code/patches|
all the logs look great..
sutula: ltspfsd is written in python?
autodita1, where did you read that fat clients are supported yet ? :)
|09:54||* sutula doesn't know that...ogra probably does|
its a feature in nautilus (actually a deliberate patch) to not show the mount option :)
autodita1, its C
ogra: you misunderstood. i was just comparing a fat client gnome with removable devices to the current situation with ltsp.
right and i was saying this isnt supported yet
ah :) i misunderstood. no python interpreter in the chroot?
if we have properly integrated fat clients that will get announced ;)
theer is python
but we try to cut it down as its slower than C
so for the speed critical stuff (login manager for example) we take C
ltspfsd predates ltsp5 we took it over from ltsp 4.x wheer no python was used
apropos ldm. whre do i change ldm's default background. takes a while to load an scale on my 1680x1250 display =-O
megaraid abort: 10857:13[255:128], fw owner..anyone care to comment?
really, works fine on the same size here ....
ogra, what kind of thin client hardwar edo you use?
autodita1, on gutsy replace /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/ubuntu/bg.png and run sudo ltsp-update-image to change it
i use an ltsp term 150 currently ... my favorite thin client :)
sadly jammcq stopped selling them :(
|09:59||cliebow2 has quit IRC|
the 170 is still available
just like the 150 but more powerful
way more expensive though
|10:00||Gadi has joined #ltsp|
oh. i have e140 neowares lying around, if anyone is interesetd :-)
jammcq, i have a 170 standing here but still prefer the 150 :)
|10:02||* ogra likes to listen to music while working and the shielind of the soundcard in the 170 just sucks with german AC power|
the e140 is very similar to the 170.
ogra: wich via graphics driver do you use?
ogra: got a german question for you: do you set special lts.conf vars for your german keyboard or do you build you client with a german locale?
Gadi, if you build on a german server you will have a german keyboard
i usually dont set the layout explicitly
but we dont set nodeadkeys by default which is something most germans use
ogra: I assume Xorg looks at the locale to autoconifg and the locale is set to german when built on a german server, yeah?
...and what is "nodeadkeys"? is that a xorg conf?
has anybody successfully managed to replace ldm with nxclient?

hello. is a ubuntu ltsp developer in here? i'd like to get some changes included and would like to discuss them :) (yes, i have code & patches, not just weird ideas)
laga: the best idea to submit patches would be to file a wishlist bug on launchpad and attach your patches
one wishlist bug per improvement
then give it a couple of days until we have time to look at it
thanks, that sounds good. was hoping i could get some advice on implementation but launchpad works as well :)

Maybe I've just been out of the loop - did XRAMPERC get pushed into LTSP5 (no manual intervention necessary after install) ? I was just testing firefox and Jim K's school art site (before doing anything with XRAMPERC at all) and firefox is crashing out (without locking up the X session) .. ?
|17:58||jammcq has joined #ltsp|
ok nm, openoffice is still having the X lockup issue..but i wonder if firefox2 got an internal fix..
as long as it isn't hurting anything, i don't really need hostnames.
