Hi all. I have simple question. When LTSP thin-client mounts NFS root FS, how is it done, that changes are not written into this NFS root FS, but only temporary/static only for this client? I use unionfs. Do you have some other/better solution? Thank you for answer.

ubuntu uses unionfs ... and no nfs
05:09
we found that using an nbd blockdevice that exports a squashfs which during boot gets merged with a tmpfs in a union is a lot faster than using plain nfs
05:10
the old nfs mounting had a method to copy single files and dirs into a tmpfs and link them to get writability
05:10
debian still uses that

hey does anyone use ltsp with rhel 5?
19:31
I really need to get that working
19:33
<gbolte>
husimon, I am sure someone here knows something
19:33
:)
19:33
<husimon>
ya if they are awake :)
19:33
<gbolte>
thats the key
19:33
<husimon>
seems like you should be able to use it with whatever distro by using the tar
19:33
<gbolte>
4.2?
19:33
<husimon>
4.2 ?
19:33
ltsp 4.2?
19:33
<gbolte>
yeah
19:34
<husimon>
that works with rhel 5?
19:34
<gbolte>
what version are you trying to use
19:34
lol
19:34
<husimon>
i haven't tried any version yet
19:34
<gbolte>
oh
19:34
lol
19:34
<husimon>
but I saw that ltsp 5 is the latest version and so far only debian and ubuntu are integrated
19:34* gbolte is on opensuse with ltsp5
19:34
<gbolte>
:)
19:35
<husimon>
so how did you do that? started from scratch?
19:35
<gbolte>
no the distro has to support ltsp5
19:35
ltsp 4.2 was its own distro
19:35
so anything "should" support it
19:36
5 changed a lot of things
19:36
<husimon>
i've seen a few hacks with ltsp5
19:36
to get it working with other distros
19:36
<johnny>
gentoo integration is almost done
19:36
<gbolte>
husimon, what is the reasoning for having to use RHEL
19:36
<johnny>
and fedora works too
19:36
<husimon>
gbolte, because we pay for support and everyone here is used to it
19:36
<johnny>
ask warren about rhel
19:36
<gbolte>
warren, would be the man
19:36
:)
19:37
husimon, the reason I ask is because we pay for SLED and SLES but ended up using opensuse because it works
19:37
:P
19:37
<husimon>
gbolte, hehe
19:37
<gbolte>
we still use sles though
19:37
<husimon>
gbolte, well if it worked on centos i'd use it
19:38
gbolte, fedora is a little different though.
19:38
<johnny>
sure.. it perhaps does not work on rhel yet, but will i imagine

husimon, what kinda setup are you planning to run ltsp on?
19:44
<husimon>
wanted to run it on a rhel 5 box with buncha ram/cpu
19:44
then take my old shitty desktop computers and use them as clients for our library
19:44
really don't want to need to manage all those shitty computers
19:44
<gbolte>
yeah
19:44
sounds like a plan
19:44
<husimon>
the other plan I had was us sunray servers
19:44
<gbolte>
are they already running rhel
19:44
?
19:45
<irule>
how may I in CLI quickly see what users ip address are using ares or any other p2p program?
19:45
<husimon>
we just added more so some are and some aren't
19:45
<gbolte>
ah
19:45
<husimon>
I wonder if it's possible ltsp to a jewdows box
19:45
<gbolte>
husimon, sure ltsp to rdesktop
19:45
:)
19:46
<husimon>
probably need terminal services lic seats and stuff though
19:46
<gbolte>
yes
19:46
you would
19:46
<husimon>
I might just fool around with vms
19:46
<gbolte>
irule, netstat -npt might show you something
19:46
<irule>
thanks gbolte
19:54
<husimon>
gbolte, i dunno ubuntu looks tempting
19:54
quick, easy, and it will work
19:54
hehe
19:55
<gbolte>
husimon, yeah
19:55
and if you have no ties other than its what you used before to RHEL I wouldnt bother
20:01
<husimon>
might have to rebuild a few pieces of software
20:03
<gbolte>
like what

Hey I just setup ltsp and the client hangs
21:26
when I put the user/pass in
21:26
just says authenticating password, and then hangs.
21:27
any ideas?
21:27
tried updating the ssh keys
21:27
then the client image
21:27
no luck
21:28
<sh00p>
i can't even get that far lol
21:37
<johnny>
husimon, try sshing to that server from another box with the right account
21:37
<husimon>
johnny, kk
21:37
I can ssh from the server to itself on that account
21:38
maybe it's listening on the wrong interface
21:38
i'll check that
21:40
<johnny>
well.. another way to try
21:40
set SCREEN_02=shell
21:40
in lts.conf and then ctrl+alt+f2 on the client and try to ssh to the server from there
21:40
then you'll see exactly what the client is seeing
21:40
plus you can check /var/log/ldm.log there

man I hate how debian based distros don't kill the dhclient after you change the network settings to static
21:50
that was the problem.....
21:50
johnny, thanks for the screen option, I like the idea of having that available.
