16:36
<japerry>
dose?
16:36

16:36
oh
16:36
LOL does! :-P /me shall read line above
16:36
Lns: LDM theming is pretty much non existant
16:37
Lns: all you can do really is replace the bg.png and logo.png files
16:37
<Lns>
japerry, that'd be enough for me - I don't see much else you can do anyway =)
16:37
I was just curious what you could do because i heard gbolte say he did that yesterday
16:38
<gbolte>
japerry, and I work together he is the one that did the ldm "theme"
16:38
:D
16:38
<Lns>
ahh =) ok thx..where are these 2 pngs located?
16:43
<japerry>
Lns: well we use LTSP on Suse, so our system might be a little different
16:44
but the ltsp chroot files are in /usr/share/ldm/themes/ldm-suse-theme/bg.png and logo.png
16:44
but if you're using suse (KIWI-LTSP), you just drop the bg.png and logo.png into /tftboot/KIWI and add the path to config.default

Can anyone help with ltsp-5 and etherboot?
18:45
hello
18:57
<vagrantc>
i'm amazed at how much energy i've mustered to support tcsh users. :)
18:58
<loathing>
haha, i usually tell them they're on their own :P
18:59
<danl>
hmmm... etherboot anyone?
18:59
<loathing>
what about it?

<danl>
kernel is downloaded and stops with the word 'done' I wait 4 to 5 minutes and the client boots. What can I look at to get rid of the lag time?
19:03
Clients are Pentium MMX, 200MHz, 128M ram using eepro100 cards. I've been using them for 6 years with ltsp 3 and 4

<loathing>
i dunno, did you try gunzipping the kernels before mkelfing them?
19:25
<danl>
I'm using the etherboot kernel from debian;gunzipped and dd to a boot floppy.
19:26
I followed the method given by 'castaway' in his Install document on Agora

<loathing>
maybe its time for newer, shinier terminals that are actually capable of netbooting without the use of a floppy? :)
19:46
<danl>
maybe - but I don't the money it would take to replace 100 clients at our public library
