Hi man. A quick question: Hardy/LTSP with italc 1.0.7, everything works OK with the lo interface (clients declared as 127.0.0.1:11xxx) but DEMO MODE doesn't work, any ideas?
11:23
No error messages whatsoever...
11:23Pascal_1 has quit IRC
11:24
<alkisg>
(didn't look at syslog though)
11:24
<stgraber>
maybe the demo interface is no correctly set
11:24
<alkisg>
Of course demo mode => with the lo interface
11:24
<stgraber>
argh
11:24
would have been too easy :)
11:24
<alkisg>
yeah! :(
11:25
I have 3 NICs on my server and I do load balancing with them, maybe that causes something?
11:25
<stgraber>
shouldn't be the case
11:25
anyway, we are currently working on an improved version of our scripts and iTalc. If you want to give it a try, just add : deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/edubuntu-italc-devel/ubuntu hardy main
11:25
to your sources.list and update
11:26
<alkisg>
3 PCs connect to each NIC... Even when I tried demo mode with eth0, it didn't work
11:26
<stgraber>
that will give you italc 1.0.8 and the new -launcher scripts
11:26
<alkisg>
Is that 1.0.9?
11:26
wow, perfect, I'll try it
11:26
Thanks a lot, I'll test and report in 2 days... :)
11:27
<stgraber>
this repository always contains the latest packaging for hardy, it'll soon be updated with 1.0.9 (once it's out)
11:27
it also adds support for standard Ubuntu computers (not thin client) and uses avahi for auto-detection of both LTSP and standard computers
11:27
<alkisg>
And I was searching the internet for hours to find a repository!!!
11:27
You desperately need a man for documentation! :)
11:28
<stgraber>
I start https://wiki.ubuntu.com/iTalc
11:28
but I'm not a good doc writer :)
11:28
<alkisg>
doesn't matter if you write well, if the facts are there! Hadn't seen that one, thanks

11:35
<gbolte>
has anyone figured out a way for multiple users on a LTSP setup to sync their palm device to evolution simultaneously
11:36
eg I have 5 users all on terminals and they all need to be able to sync their devices
11:37
I found something in a wiki about how to make syncing work but it will only work for 1 user at a time
11:37
kinda lame

I guess the hammering isn't so loud then.
14:22
How are you? I haven't seen you in a couple of years, when you came up to Maine for the conference.
14:23
<mistik1>
Besides some major pain from dental surgury I'm doing ok
14:23
yea, been keeping rather busy outside the ltsp circles
14:24
I've not had any chance to do any ltsp related work in some time
14:25
They have me doing the language dance of late, from shell script to Java to Javascript to C++
14:25
So much for saying i'm no programmer anymore, that went out the door last year

I was just going to ask if anyone has had any luck with palm syncing in a ltsp setting
16:10
still have an issue where our users need to be able to sync their palm device with evolution and the only solution that I have found only lets 1 user do so at a time
16:12
<mhterres>
hey guys
16:12
anybody can help me with kiosk mode in LTSP5 (Ubuntu 8.04) ?
16:13the_code has quit IRC
16:14vagrantc has quit IRC
16:15* sutula can't help gbolte but might have info for mhterres, but doesn't know enough about mhterres's problem from the question
16:16
<gbolte>
heh
16:16
yeah I was going to ask to explain more
16:16
:D
16:16
<mhterres>
sutula: I installed ltsp5 with the --kiosk option
16:16
now how can I configure the kiosk ?
16:16
:-)
16:17
<gbolte>
hmm I wouldnt know any of that anyway
16:17
seems ubuntu specific
16:17
:P
16:17
<mhterres>
I used the ltsp-build-client --kiosk but I don't know what to do now
16:18
<sutula>
mhterres: I've never used that or Ubuntu, but under Debian I have something akin to a kiosk running by adding LDM_AUTOLOGIN = true and some other parms
16:18
<gbolte>
mhterres, that should just build the chroot for the clients
16:18
<mhterres>
gbolte: yes, I imagine that
16:18
<sutula>
I can supply details on that, but sounds like you're looking for someone who knows about the real kiosk mode
16:18
<mhterres>
where can I find some documentation about this ?
16:19
<sutula>
mhterres: Any luck with Google?
16:19
<mhterres>
sutula: not much
16:19
sutula: I'll look better
16:19
sutula: I need to boot the client and then it need to start firefox and just that
16:19
<sutula>
mhterres: Or check back here later (or earlier)...people here are from all over the world
16:19
<mhterres>
yes
16:20
I look for info in wiki
16:20
but I'll look for some info in Edubuntu site
16:22
<gbolte>
http://doc.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/edubuntu/handbook/C/server.html
16:22
may be of some help
16:23
<mhterres>
not muck
16:23
much
16:24
When I boot the client in kiosk mode, it opens the X and the gnome and looks like it is waiting for something
16:24
"this something" that I want to configure :-)
16:24
Maybe ogra could help me, but he's not here now
16:24
I'll try again tomorrow
16:24
thx guys
16:30
<gbolte>
mhterres, so you want to make it so that the client dose not start gnome but instead just starts firefox
16:31
<mhterres>
exactly
16:31
<gbolte>
ah
16:31
ok
16:33
you probably need to make LDM auto login and then make a script that will start just firefox rather than gnome-session

<mhterres>
hmmmmmm
16:35
interesting
16:40
<gbolte>
hmm well that might not be possible actually
16:41
I am not sure that ldm will allow any session other than gnome-session

The X server on my thin clients isn't coming up. There are no significant errors in xorg.1.log or ldm.log . Is there an option I can add to /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf ?
22:00
<vagrantc>
linux distro and release?
22:00
<jblack>
Ubuntu hardy.
22:00
It worked on gutsy, upgrading to hardy results in a black screen and the lcd indicator changing color (like a bad sync)

In xorg.6.log, I get: (EE) CHROME(0): [drm] drmAgpAlloc failed
22:02
some synaptics errors, some wacom errors, and this: (EE) CHROME(0): Out of memory trying to backup DRI offscreen memory.
22:04
I'd say the last one is the problem
22:06
<johnny>
and you regenerated your chroot?
22:09
<jblack>
yeah.
22:10
The first thing I did when having gutsy->hardy upgrade problems was to do a fresh hardy install (it's easy enough w/ lvm and xen... )
22:11rjune_ has quit IRC

<jblack>
the system had 34 megs of main memory left once cache is discounted
22:11
I suppose all I need to do is disable dri
22:25
Yup there's a bug in the via driver. switching to the vesa driver worked
22:28
well, either via, or openchrome. Not sure hich
22:47
Yah. openchrome is broken with this chipset, because of a problem with DRI. Moving to the via driver fixed things right up.
22:48
johnny: Which means it wouldn't have done me any good to install ltsp locally.
22:48
<johnny>
the point was so that you could tell if it was hardware

vs software
