Hi, does anyone have any info on how multiseat (4-6 persons on 1 PC with 4-6 monitors, mice, keyboards etc) compares to LTSP? I mean performance-wise... Example: http://netpatia.blogspot.com/2008/02/multiseat-computer-with-ubuntu-804.html

Hi. I have ltsp 5 working fine, but i can't login in thin-clients on local terminal. How can I do that?
08:17
<stgraber>
what do you mean ? tty1 ?
08:18
<f13_>
I already have set the password for root in chroot.
08:18
stgraber: yes
08:18
<stgraber>
and what does it say ? account locked ?
08:18
<f13_>
stgraber: it doenst say nothing, just login incorrect
08:19
<stgraber>
try passwd -u root in the chroot, then rebuild the image
08:20
the account is locked by default so setting a password will have no effect as it's not allowed to login anyway
08:20
<f13_>
stgraber: omg... I forgot this...
08:20
stgraber: thank you... I am going to test this...
08:20
ltsp-update-image
08:20
ok?
08:22
<stgraber>
yeah
08:23
<f13_>
stgraber: thank you. I am rebuilding the image.

stgraber: It works with another user, but with root it doent work. But now the error is: Account expired.
08:31moldy_ has quit IRC
08:33
<stgraber>
weird ...
08:33
looking at the scripts we have in Intrepid, it looks like doing
08:33
passwd -u root
08:33
passwd root
08:34
in the chroot should correctly unlock the account and set the password
08:34
<f13_>
stgraber: yeah... and the /etc/shadow has a password setted for root
08:40gate_keeper_ has joined #ltsp

stgraber: Do you know about slowdown in ltsp 5? I have some thin-clients here and the top on client show me 99% and idle > 5.0
08:43moldy__ has joined #ltsp

<f13_>
and is ssh!
08:43
ssh is using all this...
08:45
I am talking with you from another machine with pxe. And this machine works very fine
08:49kwak has quit IRC
08:55
<stgraber>
f13_: try LDM_DIRECTX=True
08:55
that way X events will go outside SSH, it might help

sbalneav: hey, do you have anything against doing: http://paste.ubuntu.com/51660/ ?
09:30
sbalneav: I haven't tested the patch yet as my test lab is at the office but that should make ldm prompt the password only once, then ask for the login again. Instead of having to enter three times a wrong password before you can login again.
09:31
<f13_>
stgraber: LDM_DIRECTX worked. And ssh is not being used a lot. But the thin-client is very low...
09:31
:(
09:32
stgraber: any idea to gain performance?
09:32
<stgraber>
well, DIRECTX is usually the way to gain performance :)
09:32
other than that, maybe the X driver is wrong
09:32
<f13_>
stgraber: yes.. I have gain.
09:33
stgraber: not.. the X driver is correct, I have checkout that on xorg.conf.
09:33
stgraber: the cpu usage for X11 is too high
09:34
stgraber: Firefox for example is very low to load pages...
09:36cpunches2 has joined #ltsp

does it works with ltsp 5?
09:40
<stgraber>
yeah but it won't be fast :)
09:40
how much ram do you have ?
09:40
<f13_>
128mb
09:40
using 30 on this moment
09:40
:(
09:41
There is some recomendations to use ltsp 5?
09:41

<warren>
petre: any progress on packaging it?
13:35
petre: i'm trying to do the final steps to do a release
13:35
petre: ldm theming, fix the bug where it shows Shutdown/Reboot/Hibernate/etc
13:36
<petre>
yes: I've got a spec file, eharrison helped me with it
13:37
I think I can run rpmbuild with it, gonna try this afternoon
13:37
do I need to make a src rpm?
13:37
since it's all just docs?
13:37
will the ldm theming be configurable?
13:40
<warren>
petre: configurable yes
13:40
<petre>
cool!
13:40
<warren>
petre: we need a .src.rpm and the spec to be properly formed
13:40
petre: the package must be added to fedora proper
13:41
<petre>
Eric gave me one if his spec files that we just doctored up to fit the readme
13:41
so I think the form is probably okay, but I'll let the fedora folks be the deciders
13:45
<warren>
petre: please follow the process to submit the package for review
13:46
petre: we need to go through the process to add it to fedora
13:46
petre: i'll do the review
13:46
<petre>
right, I wrote that all down, will follow what you said
13:46
<Egyptian[Home1>
warren: i have an ssh problem .. it is not ltsp related .. could you spare a few minutes to listen to the problem ??
13:48
<petre>
warren, for the spec file, should the Group be System? or Documentation? or something else?

14:59
i'm not entirely happy with it
14:59
but we have to go with something
15:05
<petre>
right, you go with what you've got
15:05
<warren>
I think I'll choose A1
15:05
<petre>
(my dad was in broadcasting, and that was their mantra for when airtime came)
15:06
oh; I don't care for the 'chalk' letters so much; wish there was a mixed set
15:08
I think I like A3 better, but that's just me
15:08
any of them is fine, I'm sure

how do I get the serverip value to use in a plugins script in ltsp-build-client

Nubae, from ltsp-update-sshkeys: IPS=$(ip -o -f inet addr show | sed -e 's,.* \(.*\)/.*,\1,' | grep -v '^127')
15:26
<Nubae>
ah thanks alkisg, exactly what I needed
15:26
<alkisg>
But do you really need it in ltsp-build-client? IPs may change...
15:27
E.g. ltsp-update-sshkeys is called in if-up.d for this reason...
15:30mikkel has quit IRC

its for a plugin

hey, just a quick notice, all of LTSP-Cluster has now been uploaded to Launchpad. Test packages are at: https://launchpad.net/~ltsp-cluster-team/+archive and the code is on https://code.launchpad.net/ltsp-cluster
19:00
we are now working on bugfixes and documentation, I hope to have an installation guide for Ubuntu using OpenVZ by the hand of the week.
