<sbalneav>
LOL emacs too.
00:01
emacs on my iMac
00:02
scott-balneavess-mac-mini:etc sbalneav$ gcc
00:02
-bash: gcc: command not found
00:02
Well, can't win 'em all :)
00:02
<Ryan52>
I know. when I saw that the macs at school had emacs and screen, it just made my day...I was the only one not using word :P
00:03
sadly, I couldn't figure out how to print latex documents on it, so I had to use plain text :(
00:04
<sbalneav>
Well, I've already run into something called "fink" which is a way to install ported GNU/Linux software onto the Mac.
00:04
Ryan52: You like LaTeX?
00:05
That was what I used all through University. Got the Lamport book?
00:05
<Ryan52>
yes, though I make heavy use of google most of the time.
00:05
I use it like 5 times a year.
00:05
I'll look at that book, thanks.
00:06
<sbalneav>
I've already installed OpenOffice.org, so all I need to do is enable printing sharing on my Linux box, and the cups on the mac should pick it up.
00:06
I haven't, as yet, figured out how to mount an NFS volume.
00:06
From the gui, I mean.
00:07
sudo mount server:/home /local should work, but Jobs is already probably cringing at half of what I've done so far here this evening.
00:08
<Ryan52>
hehe
00:08
<sbalneav>
And mirablilis dictu, they at least INCLUDE THE INSTALL CD'S FOR ALL THE SOFTWARE with it. OSX, iLife, the works.
00:08
So SOMEONE down in Cupertino's awake at the switch.
00:10
I've gotten more interoperablility between this little mac mini in the last 2 hours than I EVER got out of windows.
00:11
'Course, I stopped looking at MS products back at Windows98, so maybe they got better after I stopped caring :)
00:13
<petre>
well, it is unix underneath
00:16
<sbalneav>
Exactly
00:16
Which is what makes it awesome.

<Appiah>
Hello , I'm having a problem setting USE_LOCAL_SWAP does not seam to affect my clients at all
06:07
filo1234: filo1234 have you tried localdev?
06:09
<filo1234>
Appiah: localdev?
06:09
Appiah: what is it? :D
06:09
<ogra>
its on by default on all recent ltsp5 implementations
06:09
plugging in a usb key to a client should just work
06:09
<Appiah>
oh
06:10
nevermind then
06:10
<filo1234>
ogra: maybe :)
06:10
ogra: in my client if i plug an usb pen not run
06:10
<ogra>
what distro
06:11
<filo1234>
ogra: ubuntu 8.10
06:11
<ogra>
definately works here
06:11
<Appiah>
I have USE_LOCAL_SWAP=True and NBD_SWAP=False , but I still get a NBD and no local swap
06:11
<filo1234>
fdisk -l doesn't see usb
06:11
<ogra>
no, it wont
06:11
its not a device on the server
06:12
fdisk can only talk to devices on the server
06:12
<filo1234>
ok
06:12
<ogra>
usb keys from clients are forwarded through ltspfs over the net
06:13
tehy should show up mounted under /media on the server (in the users session) after you plugged them in
06:13
<filo1234>
uhm
06:13
<Appiah>
maybe I should try a bigger size on the NBD instead >_>
06:17
nbd0 receive control failed "-32"
06:19
<filo1234>
ogra: uhm i have this problem : user client thin passwd thin if on server i logen in with user thin, usb is recognized on client

06:20cyberorg has joined #ltsp

<ogra>
you are aware that if you log in on the client, your desktop and all apps are runing on the server, right ?
06:21
te only thing that runs on the client is the login window, everything past that is server side
06:22cliebow_ has quit IRC
06:22
<filo1234>
ogra: ok ....
06:22
ogra: but if i plug usb on client he not run
06:22
<ogra>
so if you log in on a client and plug in a usb key after logging in, it should show up in /media if you open a gnome terminal in that session you see on the client
06:23
<filo1234>
there isn't on /media i have look
06:24
<ogra>
from the client ?
06:24
i.e. in the desktop session
06:24
<Appiah>
what does dmesg on the client say after you plugin the USB device filo1234 ?
06:25
<filo1234>
ogra: on client there isn't in /media
06:25
Appiah: now i try to look
06:25
<ogra>
in the *session*
06:25
the desktop session that starts after login on the client
06:25
open a gnome terminal there
06:25
there is no /media directly on the client
06:29
<filo1234>
ogra: on the thinclient i open gnome-termnal and ls /media give only cdrom
06:29
<ogra>
ah
06:29
if you plug the usb key directly on the server, does it show up then ?
06:30
<filo1234>
yes
06:30BrunoXLambert has quit IRC
06:31alkisg has joined #ltsp
06:31
<ogra>
if you look at dmesg on the server after plugging in, does it talk about /dev/sdX1 or only about /dev/sdX ?
06:31
<filo1234>
and if i logged in with thinclient user, on server ltsp, and i plug usb key on thinclient it work right
06:32
<ogra>
you men you are logged in twice with the same user ? dont do that, that breaks
06:32
*mean
06:32
<filo1234>
no
06:33
<ogra>
??
06:33* ogra doesnt understand
06:33
<filo1234>
ogra: so on server i have configured user for thinclient called thin ok?
06:33
<ogra>
you are logged in on the thin client and on the server, then you plug in your usb key on the client and you see it with the user logged in on the server
06:33
?
06:34
<filo1234>
yes
06:34
<Appiah>
I made the /etc/ltsp/nbdswapd.conf with SIZE=128 and SWAPDIR defined, But my client still gets 32
06:34jarias has joined #ltsp
06:34
<Appiah>
Any ideas?
06:36
<ogra>
filo1234, but you use two different users for that ?
06:37
<filo1234>
ogra: I try to login on thinclient, connect the USB key and not see, I try to login on the server with the same user thinclient, connect the USB key and works on thinclient

06:37
<ogra>

06:37
<filo1234>

Morning all, anyone apply the latest login and passwd patches in Ubuntu 8.04 with LTSP-5? We get a little worried about these types of patches borking something up =)

ogra: "ubuntu" is a Debian based GNU/Linux distrubution that includes a Ubuntu specific version of LTSP. It can be found at http://www.ubuntulinux.org. to install ltsp on ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
07:59

ogra: "debian" is is a GNU/Linux based operating system that makes an excellent LTSP server. You can find it at http://www.debian.org. for information about LTSP on debian see http://wiki.debian.org/LTSP
07:59
<cyberorg>
selffik, there is a link in the channel topic too :)
07:59
<ogra>
same for debian
07:59
<cyberorg>
hi ogra :)
08:00
<ogra>
not sure the upstream docs touch the distro specific install instructions
08:00
<cyberorg>
they work on most distros
08:00
<ogra>
!fedora

please, where are session script stored?
08:04
is possible to write a custom one?
08:05
<ogra>
wigwam, depends on your distro
08:05
<wigwam>
ubuntu
08:05
<ogra>
and yes, indeed you can write custom ones
08:05
<rjune_>
ogra: how to teach ltspbot?
08:05six2one has joined #ltsp
08:05
<wigwam>
i supposed there are somewhere in chroot enviroment, but i didn't found
08:05
<ogra>
ubuntu uses the default /etc/X11/Xsession which for example parses ~/.xsession if it exists
08:05
(on the server)
08:06
<selffik>
cyberorg, can you tell me where is a root file system by default in LTSP?
08:06
<rjune_>
I think most distros do that
08:06
<ogra>
there is nothing session related in the chroot
08:06jarias has quit IRC
08:06
<cyberorg>
wigwam, you mean rdesktop session script?
08:06
<rjune_>
right, that's purely part of the login procedure
08:06
<ogra>
selffik, /opt/ltsp/<client arch>
08:06
<wigwam>
cyberorg: yes
08:07
<ogra>
selffik, it gets created by the ltsp-build-client command
08:07
<wigwam>
cyberorg: i need to create a session script which allows user to choose either ldm or rdp session
08:07
<cyberorg>
wigwam, /usr/share/ltsp/screen.d/
08:08
<selffik>
ogra, thx!
08:09
<wigwam>
cyberorg: thanks a lot
08:10
<cyberorg>
wigwam, please post whatever you hack up on ltsp-developer ML, who knows it might end up upstream if useful :)
08:17
<alkisg>
wigwam, if your clients have >= 128 Mb RAM, you may load both of them, screen02 = rdesktop and screen07 = X
08:17
wigwam, and users may switch with Ctrl+Alt+Fx (I've tested that setup, runs OK)
08:18
<wigwam>
alkisg: i work also on this funcionality
08:19
but no all clients want it that way
08:19
<alkisg>
wigwam, you don't have to modify any scripts for this, it works by only modifying lts.conf
08:20
<wigwam>
alkisg: btw. didn't you have problems with win terminal server disconnection of non-logged in sessions?
08:20
<alkisg>
wigwam, and you may disable either rdesktop or X for clients that don't want that by lts.conf entries (per PC)
08:20
<wigwam>
alkisg: i know, solution you've mentioned we deployed once
08:20
<alkisg>
wigwam, like Appiah told you, it's a win server setting, I modified it and didn't have timeouts anymore
08:21
<wigwam>
alkisg: i know this is not win channel, but can you please hint me where to modify this?
08:21
<alkisg>
but I don't remember the exact location, it's been a long time and I no longer use that setup
08:22
wigwam, I think it was in the terminal services management console
08:22
<wigwam>
thanks
08:22
i didn't found nothing there, but i will try one more
08:23
<alkisg>
wigwam, I also found out that I had to use the rdesktop options in lts.conf to not display a login name in the login screen (again, don't remember details)
08:24
wigwam, and pGina for ldap authentication
08:25
<wigwam>
thanks a lot

The only thing I didn't change was the name of the package because I figured that would screw things up with Fedora
08:49
<warren>
the package name is fine
08:50
<pscheie>
long-term, though, I think it would be easier if the package can be renamed at some point, too

no

not going to work work either.
08:53
<brendan0powers>
thats too bad
08:53
<rjune_>
yeah
08:53
<pscheie>
warren, I took out the last step, of removing the package via rpm -e because I regarded that as unnecessary in the context of a Quick Start Guide (QSG)
08:53

been trying to get sick for a week, finally got it

08:55
<pscheie>
warren, but also left in the step about deleting /etc/skel/Desktop/QSG *if* one wishes the file to not appear on the desktop of newly created users
08:55
<warren>
pscheie: one problem with this, is it will reappear if there is a package upgrade
08:56
<pscheie>
warren, if they don't rpm -e the package?

Morning everyone
08:57
<pscheie>
that would only apply to cases where it's been installed to the hard drive
08:57Ahmuck has joined #ltsp
08:58
<pscheie>
so, I'll try to restructure the doc so the rpm -e falls under that
08:58
there's really just one sentence about installing to hard disk, since it's pretty simple
08:58
but to an uninitiated that mightn't be apparent
08:59
IOW, the 'install to hard disk, then follow the LTSP network setup steps below' path could be made more obvious
09:00
That's what I mean when I say it could use a bit more refinement.

brendan0powers: if warran wants to call, chris has my phone number, can still talk later

I'll work more on it during the weekend

Hello! Simply question, I am already read the docs of LTSP, but i dont understand how can i add packages to thin client. For example i need to have access to thin client by SSH...its possible?
09:06
<pscheie>
warren, is my RH Bugzilla login the same as my Fedora login?
09:06
<selffik>
I am sorry, i am new user in it :)
09:07
<warren>
pscheie: no
09:07
pscheie: RH bugzilla is an e-mail address wiht a separate password
09:08
<pscheie>
ah, right, got it
09:09
<johnny>
selffik, you don't need to add packages to thin clients in most cases, just add them to the serve
09:09
server*
09:09
then are then enabled for the thin clients
09:09
<pscheie>
warren, bugzilla updated
09:10

why do you need to access thin client by ssh?

johnny, so if server already has a SSHD than thisclient also will has a SSHD
09:31

Well, so far it's not like it was a big issue: I've got the MP3's on the mac, I just couldn't seem to play 'em from iTunes.
09:32
selffik: No, a thin client normally doesn't have sshd installed.

create separate primary groups, like user1, user2, for the users

i'd like to figure out some way we can track the currently released versions of ltsp, ltspfs, ldm, etc.
11:37
unfortunately, launchpad's web interface doesn't allow us to browse tags ...
11:38
so we'd need to basically have a script that downloads the bzr branch, and runs "bzr tags" and spits it out to a file ...
11:38Ahmuck has quit IRC

<ogra>
use olive :)
11:39
<vagrantc>
i want something that is wget-able.
11:39
ogra: basically, for the debian/watch file
11:39
<ogra>
the xmlrpc interface of LP might have something
11:39Subhodip has joined #ltsp
11:39
<vagrantc>
ogra: i've already filed bugs on launchpad about it
11:40
although i guess those were just for the web interface ...
11:40
buy at any rate, we need a way to publish them, ideally to ltsp.org ...
11:40
s,buy,but,g
11:41
no matter how it gets generated
11:41
<ogra>
python-launchpadlib might have something for it, not sure
11:41
<vagrantc>
i don't think that information is available via launchpad
11:42
there's also no way to "get the latest version of this file from this branch" with launchpad's web ui.
11:42* ogra wonders why he gets locale errors while compiling a kernel ...
11:42
<vagrantc>
as that would be another option.
11:43
<ogra>
did you ask in #launchpad ?
11:43
<vagrantc>
yes.
11:43
and subscribed to the relevent bug reports
11:44
LP#246739, LP#269365, LP#260363
11:44
although i'm beginning to suspect that the latter two are a different issue
11:45
<johnny>
ogra, do you know anything about new kernels for intrepid?
11:46
<ogra>
johnny, nope
11:46
<johnny>
suck
11:46
:(
11:46
people are hating me now :(
11:46
<ogra>
there was a security update, but thats a while ago
11:46
<johnny>
i'd like to find the 2.6.26 kernel that shipped with earlier intrepids
11:46
the alphas
11:46
<ogra>
look at LP
11:46
<johnny>
no luck so far
11:47
but maybe i'm typing in the wrong thing
11:47
<ogra>
it usually has all versions of a package
11:47
<johnny>
basically.. the intrepid kernel is unusable
11:47
breaks my sata controller
11:47
<ogra>
yes, you said so
11:47
<johnny>
in a way different than the hardy kerenls broke it
11:47
at least this time it boots :)
11:47* johnny is using a gutsy kernel
11:47
<ogra>
i assume you filed a bug and brought the kernel teams attention to it
11:48

already filed

not by me tho

sbalneav, it say login incorrect, i am also have question, how can i go back to my root chroot?"
11:54

does the user you try to log in with exist on the server ?
11:55
<sbalneav>
yeah, and what do you mean by: how can i go back to my root chroot?

server.
11:58

hi all, im back with another stupid question
11:58
<vagrantc>
everything pretty much happens on the server
11:58
selffik: unless you're doing something unusual.
11:58
<notasysop>
if i had stuff to the server, do i have to recreate the image before it will go to the client
11:59* ogra pokes https://launchpad.net/+builds .... still more than 8000 packages until i can bootstrap arm :(
11:59wima has left #ltsp
11:59
<rjune_>
ogra: I thought ebox was gonna be pushed in ubuntu
11:59
<notasysop>
like i installed x11vnc on the server, and in thin-client manager, when i click view screen, it says client needs x11vnc installed
11:59
<rjune_>
x11vnc needs to be installed into the thin client root
11:59mattwalston has joined #ltsp

<rjune_>
aka LTSPROOT
12:00
<ogra>
rjune_, there is a community team somewhere and i saw there was a meeting scheduled at UDS
12:00
<selffik>
So i added already some user and now its said Xsession: unable to start X session no /home/user/.xsession file
12:00
<rjune_>
UDS?
12:00
<notasysop>
is that a config file or a directory? LTSPROOT i mean
12:01
<rjune_>
ubuntu Developer Summit?
12:01
notasysop: directory
12:01
<ogra>
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UDSJaunty
12:01
<rjune_>
it's what y our terminals attach to as their root fs
12:01
<mattwalston>
Upgraded from ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10. Now thinclients will boot and black screen hang upon starting X. What should I look at now and anyone got an easy way to see what is going on inside of the client before it freezes?
12:01
!docs
12:01
<ltspbot>
mattwalston: "docs" is For the most current documentation, see http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream
12:02
<notasysop>
ok, what about java runtime? same deal?
12:02
<rjune_>
ogra: would be really fantastic to see an linux stack that included LDAP+smb integration from the getgo
12:02
<ogra>
mattwalston, make sure that you properly wiped and rebuilt the client
12:02warren has joined #ltsp
12:03
<rjune_>
notasysop: no clue there
12:03
<notasysop>
kk, i havent actually tried to run java in a browser on the client yet, just thought i'd ask before i installed
12:03
<johnny>
notasysop, thin-client-manager is umaintained
12:03
and i never got it to work either
12:04
you probably want italc
12:04
<notasysop>
it works as far as showing the processes, letting me kick users and all but just the view screen doesnt work
12:04* ogra will take the time and remove the vnc stuff from it soon
12:04
<johnny>
yeah.. you want italc
12:04
<ogra>
t-c-m works fine for the rest
12:04
<johnny>
if you want view screen
12:04
<ogra>
yeah
12:04
<notasysop>
italc? is it a package in repo?
12:04
<ogra>
yes
12:04
<johnny>
yes
12:05
<notasysop>
ok. just so im clear about this.....
12:05
i dont have to rebuild the client image to get new things on the client if i put the files in LTSPROOT?
12:05
<mattwalston>
ogra: tried that and then did a clean install on server
12:05
<rjune_>
italc only works with terminals, right. not with a group of workstations?
12:05
<ogra>
rjune, works fine with both
12:06
<rjune_>
Oooo
12:06
cool
12:06
<ogra>
and the master interface is also available for windows
12:06
<rjune_>
nifty
12:06
<johnny>
notasysop, yes you do
12:07
<selffik>
ogra, So i added already some user and now its said Xsession: unable to start X session no /home/user/.xsession file
12:07
<notasysop>
ok, so if i have installed a bunch of new stuff i need to rebuild the image?
12:07
sorry im such a noob lol
12:07
<johnny>
notasysop, why would you install a bunch of new stuff in there?
12:08
you normally never need to install anything in there
12:08
<ogra>
notasysop, what did you install in the client chroot ?
12:08
<johnny>
just install it on the server
12:08
not in the chroot
12:08
and then you don't haveto rebuild anything
12:08
<notasysop>
ive never done anything to the chroot
12:08
<johnny>
maybe we need a ! that describes this..
12:08
then you don't have to rebuild anything
12:08
<notasysop>
ok awesome
12:08
<johnny>
only if you modify stuff in the chroot
12:08
<ogra>
you only need to run ltsp-update-image if you add packages to the chroot
12:09
<notasysop>
ok i think im gonna stay away from that for now
12:09
and hope that italc solves the x11vnc problem
12:09
<johnny>
no.. it doesn't
12:09
it's a totally seperate application
12:09
<selffik>
People!! new problem :) Your account has expired; please contact your system administrator

i meant that as use italc instead of tcm
12:10
<johnny>
what the hell are you doing selffik ?
12:10
where did you run that from?
12:11
<notasysop>
if i can get my stupid repos to work omg i get checksum errors all the time from every repo in the list
12:11
<selffik>
johnny, chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 && adduser
12:11
<ogra>
selffik, err, why are yu doing that ?
12:12
<johnny>
don't do that
12:12
selffik, just run adduser
12:12
or use the gui tool
12:12
<ogra>
yeah, use the desktop tool to add users
12:13
it has the advantage of adding the user to all the right groups and gives you the right profiles etc
12:13
<selffik>
On server i dont have desktop
12:13
<ogra>
that doesnt work
12:13
ltsp needs a desktop
12:13
*on the server*
12:13
<johnny>
you don't need a monitor.. but you do need the software..
12:13
<ogra>
sine everything runs on the server after login
12:13
*since
12:14
<selffik>
ok what should i install in server than?
12:14
<ogra>
is that ubuntu ?
12:14
<selffik>
yeah ubuntu
12:14
8.04
12:14
<ogra>
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
12:14
<selffik>
that is all?
12:15
<ogra>
and wait for 20-30 min
12:15
yeah, thats all
12:15
<johnny>
ogra, the ubuntu-kernel people are not very talkative :)
12:15* johnny waits
12:15
<selffik>
ok :) thx i will do that!
12:15
<ogra>
johnny, well, weekend ... evening ...
12:15
<johnny>
i should have done this earlier
12:16
<ogra>
you might get the US people from the kernel team though
12:16
europe might be out already
12:16
<selffik>
ogra, its already more that 1 hour :)
12:16
<johnny>
i wonder if they have a script to build the kernel and package it
12:17
from the latest git sources
12:17
<selffik>
ogra, i need to wait for what :)
12:17
<johnny>
i'd be willing to try using the latest kernel package
12:17
<ogra>
selffik, well you could just have used the alternate CD ... the full install is usually done in 45min and sets up everythig for you :)
12:17
<johnny>
if i could find if they had a ppa or something..
12:18
<ogra>
johnny, rtg has a ppa, but he usualy focuses on wlan fixes
12:18
<notasysop>
why does java suck so bad in linux! so annoying
12:18
<ogra>
just ask in the channel
12:18
<selffik>
ogra, its no problem i will wait, going take supper :) and its will be done! So i will back in an hour :)
12:18
<ogra>
yeah
12:18
<notasysop>
its lame when windows 98 can do something a 2008 linux release CANT
12:19
anyway thanks for your help again guys

if you catch stgrabber he might have some insight on getting your CLI to work ... it's AMD chipset correct?
12:27
<six2one>
my company had some lower end cli units with that crappy geode chipset in it, so i could only do an exchange for the 6500x...
12:27
no
12:27
its via
12:28
im suprised it didnt just fire right up, but x def doesnt run...no issues up till that point...should be seeing login screen, instead nothing
12:29

hmmm what distro? ltsp 5?

yea

DVI or VGA?

re: CAN-o-SPAM_ , My favorite TCs are by far the disklessworkstations.com LTSP Term 1220PXE

I use that for my own TC at work and it's never failed me. Worked perfectly OOTB

im just wondering what is wrong with either these terms from cli or my setup that keeps them from working
12:50
<Lns>
six2one: do you have a URL for those? I can't find anything on google
12:50
<CAN-o-SPAM_>
six2one ... it should work, maybe a re-install (?)
12:50
<six2one>
i have an ltsp install in a vm...ill give that a shot
12:50
<Lns>
six2one: also, what monitor are you using?

Hey Lns, what's up? :)
13:04
Done any bonding? :P
13:04
<Lns>
alkisg: nada mucho =) Just eager to test out this Java workaround at my first school. They're using TypingMaster, which uses Java extensively. they werent' able to upgrade to the new version because of Java - which sucked because the new version has lots of fun games for the students
13:04
<mattwalston>
Lns: yes, but i am trying to get it to work by specifying in lts.conf
13:05
<ogra>
if you ran ltsp-build-client after upgrade you should really move the lts.conf out of the way first
13:05
<Lns>
mattwalston: so it doesn't work with no lts.conf? What's the TC hardware?
13:05
ogra: does the presence/content of lts.conf affect how ltsp-build-client behaves?
13:05
<mattwalston>
DevonIT cheap one... Via chipset
13:06
<ogra>
no, but how the clients behave :)
13:06
<Lns>
ogra: ;)
13:06
<mattwalston>
Lns: i think it has something to do with the detection process
13:07
<Lns>
mattwalston: sounds sane..try moving the lts.conf out of the way so it autodetects everything by itself
13:07
<ogra>
the detection is plainly done by xorg itself now, no more scripts by default
13:07
<mattwalston>
Lns: it doesn't
13:07
<Lns>
that's awesome
13:07* Lns isn't sure then.. Via has always worked ok for me
13:08
<mattwalston>
ogra: I guess I should put an xorg.conf in chroot, rebuild and see if it works... don't really want to do that though, too many diffrent types of hw on this network
13:08* Lns also doesn't use 8.10
13:08
<ogra>
mattwalston, can you creat a three line lts.conf:
13:08
<Lns>
mattwalston: you can probably specify the config in lts.conf for that particular client/class of client
13:08
<ogra>
[default]
13:08
SCREEN_07=ldm
13:08
SCREEN_02=shell
13:08
and check the Xorg.0.log in /var/log after a client boot ?
13:09
<mattwalston>
ogra: will do
13:09gonzaloaf_laptop has joined #ltsp
13:09
<ogra>
make sure there is nothing else in the lts.conf
13:09
and check what the errors are
13:10
i havent seen xorg having problems with a clean chroot from ltsp-build-client in 8.10 yet
13:10
<mattwalston>
also, can I maintain two images for same arch?
13:10
ogra: every thing I tried it on works fine except for these damn devices
13:11
<ogra>
yes, on different nbd ports
13:11
<mattwalston>
ogra: they need to be retired but boss is cheap... via eden 400mhz does not exactly make my users happy
13:11
<ogra>
oh ? it should
13:11
at least if it has a good amount of ram
13:12
i have seen 300MHz devices working fine
13:12
<alkisg>
ogra: in a lab xorg autodetection completely hanged all the clients. Had to do CONFIGURE_X=True to make them boot.
13:12
<ogra>
alkisg, bugs please :)
13:12
<alkisg>
ogra, how can I see the bugs on a dead pc? :)
13:12
<ogra>
not you :)
13:13
*i* want to see them on launchpad
13:13
<alkisg>
I mean, I can't report anything other than lspci etc
13:13
<ogra>
so i can point our X team to them
13:13
<alkisg>
ogra, ok then, will do
13:13
<ogra>
not much i can do anymore for 8.10 i fear though
13:13
<alkisg>
but really they're ancient S3 virge cards, I don't know if it's worth it
13:13
<ogra>
ah
13:13
likely even been dropped upstream
13:14
but they still should fall back to vesa
13:14
<Lns>
ogra: why would some drivers be dropped?
13:14
<alkisg>
They work fine with CONFIGURE_X=True or X_CONF=something though
13:14
No, they load s3virge driver
13:14
<ogra>
Lns, many were
13:14
Lns, ask upstream :)

how can I log in without X?

alkisg, the one i'm currently working with is 4" :)
13:20
on top of an arm board ...
13:20
<Lns>
7" really isn't that bad, as long as you aren't using anything above 800x480
13:21
<alkisg>
Duh... my kids nintento has a bigger screen!
13:21

nintendo should have about the same

however my real server still wont budge....

Lns, -updates is in there by default
13:27

Ryan52: i figured out how to get a bootable gpxe floppy ... select .liso, mount the image, and use boot.img as your floppy image.
13:54
or build from gpxe source using bin/gpxe.pdsk
13:54
as rom-o-matic doesn't seem to generate .pdsk files
13:55

ogra, desktop is starting, its cool :) so how i can add for sshd start at thisclient

wasn't able to get the roms to build, though...
14:04
<alkisg>
Are some of them proprietary?
14:04
<vagrantc>
which people will want for kvm and qemu
14:04
alkisg: no, the bnx2 ones just seem to be too big...
14:05
i haven't really tracked down all the liscensing... that's probably the hardest part about packaging gpxe for debian.
14:05
i wouldn't be surprised if there are binary firmware blobs
14:14
and i haven't figured out how to skip the broken roms
14:14
but i've got a very useful package almost ready
14:16

vagrantc, boot.img inside the .liso image uses syslinux 3.11 from 2005... Something's wrong in their building process! :)
14:16

uh-oh.
14:16
might have to strip out code-copies, too.
14:16
or at least get them to use the ones installed on the system
14:19

right, that's saying that the removable attribute should != 1

Does anyone have an objection to me adding a 'wishlist' bug for replacing and/or adding to the "LDM_GUESTLOGIN" an option to dynamically create temporary guest users, then nuke them & their homedirs after logout? This would aid greatly in large numbers of TCs' guest accounts (no need to add specific accounts for each TC if you don't need to keep files/etc around, also greatly reduces lts.conf file size/clutter with individual TC stanzas for guest login info)
16:09
<johnny>
the last thing you said isn't required
16:09
iirc i already told you this
16:09
i don't have any individual stanzas in lts.conf

16:11
<sbalneav>
Lns: it would pretty much be impossible to implement. Adding a user's a root operation, and we don't have root's passowrd, or even a guarenttee that root can log in via ssh

i know there's a neat oddjob helper option for pam_mkhomedir
16:12
are you guys familiar with oddjob?
16:12
<Lns>
johnny: nope
16:12
<johnny>
i just recently found out about it
16:12
<sbalneav>
selffik: Sure, it sees the hard drive, but Linux can't directly mount an ntfs partition.
16:12dirigeant has quit IRC
16:13
<johnny>
sbalneav, yes it can
16:13
just in ro mode
16:13
<selffik>
sbalneav, when i am installing Ubuntu on this HDD i am see NTFS and make image of the disk with ntfs-3g
16:13* Lns googles... I'd love to see USB key/smartcard auth type stuff put into LDM, that would be SO cool.
16:13
<johnny>
if you want write you need ntfs3g .. which he mentioned mcuh earlier
16:13
<sbalneav>
Thought you needed the fuse ntfs thing to do that
16:13
<johnny>
no.. just for writing
16:13
but he knows about that already
16:13
<selffik>
sbalneav, this i want to do with thin client
16:13
<johnny>
selffik, you have to install ntfs3g into the chroot
16:14
<selffik>
johnny, so if i am install 3g than it will mount?
16:14
<johnny>
perhaps
16:14
<sbalneav>
if he wants to write to the disk, he's also going to need to hack up the add_fstab_entry script
16:14
<johnny>
it might require more magic
16:15
<sbalneav>
Right, so, I'm correct in saying, with LTSP, an ntfs disk isnt going to work out of the box.
16:16
does the disk NEED to be ntfs? Or can it be something else?
16:16
<selffik>
ok guys, why when i am install just ubuntu in this hard drive with NTFS partition...i can see it in Ubuntu and make some image with ntfs-3g? how can i do it by this THIn clien???
16:16dirigeant has joined #ltsp
16:16
<sbalneav>
Short answer: you can't easily
16:17
we haven't done any work to make localdevs work with NTFS
16:17
<selffik>
sbalneav, we dont run for easy, but need to go right way
16:17
<johnny>
selffik, it's harder
16:17
you have to spend time learning tho
16:17
<sbalneav>
You're going to have to modify LTSP to make that work.
16:18
I would either 1) reformat the disk to either Fat32, or ext2
16:18
or 2) not use LTSP as the method to try to do this.
16:18
<selffik>
for example...Thinstation right away see this all partition...why LTSP cannot?
16:18
<johnny>
sbalneav, Lns : oddjob is a D-BUS service which performs particular tasks for clients which connect to it and issue requests using the system-wide message bus
16:19
<selffik>
So LTSP not universal than?
16:19
<johnny>
and then oddjob-mkhomedir : An oddjob helper which creates and populates home directories
16:19
<sbalneav>
Thinstations a commercial product, and they've probably done the work necessary to make ntfs work.
16:19
<alkisg>
johnny, but how are the homedirs going to be deleted after logoff?
16:19
<johnny>
alkisg, create another helper?
16:20Ahmuck has quit IRC
16:20
<alkisg>
well, if it has hooks for logoff, it shouldn't be hard...
16:20
<selffik>
Now almost using NTFS for WIndows for example, i think its very good things
16:20
<Lns>
sbalneav: So it's all GPL code right? Why not get that code from them and at implement it at some point?
16:20BrunoXLambert has joined #ltsp
16:20
<johnny>
selffik, just keep fighting
16:20
but try to learn yourself..
16:20
<sbalneav>
Lns: Be my guest.
16:21
<johnny>
wait.. so.. what are the benefits of thinstation over ltsp? or vice versa?
16:21
<selffik>
thinstation is free
16:21
<sbalneav>
So, then use thinstation if it does what you need it to do.
16:22
<selffik>
Thinstations i dont like....because its only for rdesctop and etc...and many drivers are not suported....
16:22
<sbalneav>
ok, so reformat the disk to be ext2 then
16:22
<selffik>
but i like LTSP at this point and i think its will be good to add some of NTFS supply
16:23
<sbalneav>
It would be fantastic
16:23* sbalneav looks around
16:23
<sbalneav>
any volunteers?
16:24* Lns volunteers the thinstation people ;)
16:24
<sbalneav>
I don't have a windows licence at home, and cant make ntfs volumes, so I've got no way to test/implement.
16:24
Sure, but I've never seen any patches from them.
16:25
If someone wants to have a look at their source code, figure out what changes we need, I'd be happy to apply them.
16:25
<selffik>
THE MAIN MY TASK: I want boot ubuntu by network PXE with windows system on HDD of this client and than do a recovery from image. Until all get know LInux like windows :)
16:25
<Lns>
I'd do it if I knew how. I'd help pay a bounty or something along with others who want to see it implemented though, if any coders would be willing to work for $$...
16:25
<sbalneav>
selffik: Then, as of right now, you can't do that with LTSP.
16:25
<Lns>
selffik: doesn't sysrescuecd/partimage do this?
16:25
<selffik>
my advanteges: is that i can do it remotely! and its will save much time
16:26
<Lns>
selffik: i think there's a project that already does this.
16:26
LTSP doesn't sound like the right fit for that goal IMHO
16:26
<alkisg>
selffik, there are ways to boot gparted etc over the network
16:27
LTSP is not about recovery
16:28
<selffik>
YEAH its not for that i know, but later when i need to use thinclient for thinclient, why it shouldbe universal for that!???
16:28
<sbalneav>
selffik: Well it CAN be universal, but not without some work on yours/somebody elses part.
16:29
You're saying you want something RIGHT NOW.
16:29
It's not there right now.
16:29
<alkisg>
selffik, you may have a pxelinux (remote) menu with (1) remotely load LTSP, (2) remotely load thinstation, (3) remotely load sysrescuecd etc. You don't have to use LTSP for everything
16:30
<sbalneav>
Anywho, I've got to head home for the day.
16:30
<alkisg>
E.g. *I* wouldn't want LTSP to be universal, cause it would be heavier, and need more RAM or something
16:30
<Lns>
bye sbalneav !
16:30
<sbalneav>
I'll be on later tonight.
16:30

see you all later.
16:30
<selffik>
sbalneav, bye
16:31

selffik: what you're saying is simply that you'd like to see NTFS r/w support in LTSP....right?

Hey Gang, - I'm running ltsp edubuntu 8.04.1. I can get about 5 thin clients to work, but if I reboot them, they fail at the point: Waiting for the link-up on net0 ...ok. THey present their mac address address, then a series of dots, and then a boot failure message.

I'm guessing not, which means remote syslog is enabled. Disable it like I told you and you should be fine.
16:43
<johnny>
sbalneav, you sure can make ntfs volumes
16:43
i've done it before
16:44
just install the existing ntfs packages.. -tools or -utils or whatever
16:44
<Mip5>
No - it's one of my thin clients.
16:44
<johnny>
and you get a mkfs.ntfs
16:44

I'm hunting around, but can't recall how I enabled the remote syslog. Any ideas?

Thanks gang - this looks like it's working now.
16:52
<Lns>
Mip5: awesome. =)
16:52
<Mip5>
For the record - the only place I made the change to disable remote syslogd was by commenting out the file that Lns pointed out (and restarting syslogd). I didn't see any reference to it in lts.conf
16:54
<Lns>
Mip5: there are stanzas in lts.conf that help TCs point to a specific SERVER/SYSLOG_SERVER (IIRC) but if you don't have that, it defaults to the LTSP server. The actual enabling/disabling of remote syslog is still in /etc/default/syslogd
16:54
<Mip5>
Cool - that helps. I only have one ltsp server at this time (but we'll be deploying at least 2 others at other sites if this goes well).

16:58

Mip5: if you haven't seen it, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP - community Wiki with tons of great info
16:59
humbly maintained by me and others
16:59
<Mip5>
Neat! I've been using some of these resources. They have been *very* helpful.
17:00
I have a question about building new clients. - should I make a backup of previous clients/chroot environment, incase something goes wrong? Does that link provide a good workflow for the ongoing management of the TC environment?
17:00
<Lns>
Mip5: cool. Well KIT, it's always good to have a community of educational LTSP setups (#edubuntu is a great place for that as well). nubae is also a good contact for that.
17:02
Mip5: Not sure what you mean exactly - but yes, backing up your previous chroot is a good idea when making changes imho
17:04
<Mip5>
LNS - basically, I tried to get think-client-manager going, and got errors about needing to install x11vnc on the client
17:04
Given that I'm fairly new - I'd like a way to go back, if some new change I make breaks something that had been working.
17:05
<Lns>
Mip5: i wouldn't use that, it's better to use iTALC - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/iTalc
17:05
thin-client-manager is defunct
17:06
<Mip5>
That's good to know - I haven't been able to get thin-client-manager to work!
17:06
<Lns>
Mip5: where did yo usee the docs for that? not on the wiki right?
17:07
<Mip5>
I'm sorry - I can't recall where I saw it. I might have just recalled seeing it in a previous version (Gutsy perhaps?)
17:07
<alkisg>
Lns, http://doc.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/handbook/C/ltsp-tcm.html
17:08
The whole edubuntu handbook should be updated, and maybe some parts moved to UbuntuLTSP...
17:09
<Mip5>
Yup - that's where I saw it - the handbook.
17:09
<Lns>
alkisg: agreed. I think the edubuntu handbook has even less regular maintenance than plain old ltsp..
17:09
it's hard because the edubuntu/ltsp split got some people confused, so there's fragmentation there
17:09
lots of scattered docs, etc.
17:10
<johnny>
it's actually not dfunct
17:10
Lns, it works fine..

so why not keep using what works

johnny, I may need some explaining here... how are you going to blank the screens without any service running?
17:12

i only use the blanking and disconnecting and process killing features :)
17:12
however thin-client-manager does it..
17:13
it doesn't run a service on the client
17:13* Lns sees a lot of worth in t-c-m as somewhat of a central ltsp control panel
17:13

X magic, then?

then we should mod the docs, and note the change
18:53
I'll do that now.
18:55
Now, If I was an *sshole and a jerk, I'd point out to vagrant, who's (admittedly very mildly) poked me about backwards compatibilty, I'd point out the relatively small colour different between a certain pot and kettle.

should I still refer to it as version 0.0.2?
18:56

lucky you :)
18:57
<sbalneav>
how should I word it though. Im trying to be "cross platform" so I don't want to mention "intrepid"
18:57
<petre>
or should I increment it since I already posted a 0.0.2 src rpm to the bugzilla?
18:57
<sbalneav>
Well, there's no fun taking a poke at someone if they're not listening... :)

18:58
ok then.
18:59
Would you be interested in my resume?
18:59
<ogra>
sure, though that should go through our HR dept ... what about your ARM knowledge ?
18:59

i spent much of today packaging gPXE for debian ... let's see if it gets anywhere :)

19:00
<sbalneav>
hmmm
19:00
<ogra>
have you done other embedded stuff before ??
19:00
<sbalneav>
So, any super fantastic docbook experts here?
19:00
<rjune_>
I build routers for a living
19:00
<ogra>
and you dont build them on ARM ?
19:00
<rjune_>
I archetected the distribution the company I work for is using
19:00
nope, we use x86
19:00
<ogra>
ah
19:00
<rjune_>
I've done some work with PowerPC though
19:00
<sbalneav>
On the udev line in question, in the HTML, it's fine, but when it's a pdf, the line "runs off the end of the page"
19:01
<rjune_>
and a bit with LTSP
19:01
I do own a zaurus though
19:01

well, ARM is spethial :)
19:01

and I have contributed to busybox. :-)
19:01
<ogra>

19:01
(teh zaurus)
19:01
<sbalneav>
Is there some pragma I need to specify, or do I just "manually break the line"
19:01

ogra: as far as I know linux is all they use on the z
19:01
<ogra>
ah
19:02
sbalneav, buy a widescreen display :P
19:02
<sbalneav>
lol
19:02
That solution is so utterly wrong, and yet, if I implement it, I get a widescreen display out of it.
19:03
I like the cut of your jib, son!
19:04
There's a few other bad tags too. I should fix them up while I'm at it.
19:04
Also, time to merge in djohnstons and clibows doc work.
19:05
Looks like it's a docbook night tonight.

you broke your ankle ?
21:01
<sbalneav>
How much did you pay again for that doctor's visit in Maine?
21:01
<davidj>
sbalneav: heh
21:01
It's a bad sprain, so bad that the ligaments tore the bone.
21:01
I didn't know bone could tear.
21:02
<sbalneav>
davidj: I'm going to have to cherry pick your patches manually.
21:02
<davidj>
lucky me, the tear's not bad.
21:02
sbalneav: That bad? What's wrong?
21:02
<sbalneav>
you spent a huge amount putting 2 spaces after periods. Docbook auto-handles all that for you.
21:02
<davidj>
I'm happy to feed them in in smaller batches.
21:03
<sbalneav>
Also, we had to bugger about with your makefile & stuff, I don't want to merge those changes.
21:03
<davidj>
I spent 10 minutes on that. awk and cut are great tools.
21:03
<sbalneav>
heh
21:03
<davidj>
I didn't think you'd want the makefile chnages.
21:03
<sbalneav>
So, I'm just going through and picking out the good things.
21:04
You and cliebow picked up on a lot of the same issues, so some of it's been handled by clibow.
21:04

Whatever suits you.

I've wondered about the iSCSI, how well would that work?
22:09petre has quit IRC
22:09
<sbalneav>
Dunno. Lots of people use it. I haven't seen any deployments for thin clients, but theoretically, it should work.
22:10
<rjune_>
I don't think you can do rw to multiple clients
22:10
<sbalneav>
It's really no different from a "thick" client.
22:10
<rjune_>
ro should work ok though
22:10
<sbalneav>
Well, no, but a ro /, with each ws getting a (small) /var should work.
22:11
<rjune_>
would it be faster / work better then nfs?
22:11
than
22:11
<sbalneav>
Don't know that much about iSCSI
22:11
<rjune_>
nor I
22:13
still, that and AoE should probably merit some discussion

nfs is just so damn easy to setup though

22:29
<vagrantc>
sbalneav, Ryan52: what's WEXITD | WSTOPPED in C ? where's it come from?
22:29* vagrantc fires up pastebot
22:30
<ltsppbot>
"vagrantc" pasted "WEXITD and company" (32 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/105
22:31
<Ryan52>
that "combines WEXITD and WSTOPPED"
22:31
bitwise or.
22:31
<vagrantc>
i guess i should grep /usr/include ?
22:31
<Ryan52>
that'll give you a random number :)
22:31
seemingly random.
22:31* Ryan52 looks at the context
22:31
<vagrantc>
bits/waitflags.h
22:32
or linux/wait.h
22:33
<Ryan52>
see "man waitpid" for what those each mean.
22:34
and it's WEXITED, not WEXITD.
22:34
<vagrantc>
yeah.
22:37
<sbalneav>
It basically says: return me the status of any processes that either exited normally, or were stopped by a signal
22:38
basically, the ldm_wait function is passed a pid to wait for
22:38
if we see ANOTHER process we weren't expecting return status we log that.
22:39
then we check how the process ended. Either exited normally, or bopped on the head by kill.
22:43
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: was this introduced in your most recent work?
22:44chrisinajar has quit IRC
22:45
<sbalneav>
yes
22:45
Last couple of days.
22:49
vagrantc: It working OK for you? Or you're just reading and learning?
22:50
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: working fine where it matters :)
22:52
<sbalneav>
LOL, that answer leads me to believe it's NOT working fine somewhere :)
22:52
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: Debian GNU/kFreeBSD :)
22:53
sbalneav: 2.0.6 would build on it, though. :)
22:53
<sbalneav>
What's it do/not doing there
22:53
Burping on build?
22:53
<vagrantc>
yeah, WEXITED not defined or some such
22:53
although i also had to remove the load_guestinfo code to get that far
22:55
<sbalneav>
Does it have the waitid function?
22:56
man 2 waitid
22:56
it may be we're just missing a needed header file
22:57
<vagrantc>
i couldn't find anything in /usr/include that had WEXITED
22:57
<sbalneav>
As we port outside of GNU/Linux, we're going to need some #ifdef's to modify things
22:58
man 2 waitid
22:58
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: don't loose any sleep over it :)
22:58
sbalneav: no waitid
22:58
<sbalneav>
ahhhh
22:58
<johnny>
vagrantc, but you got him in his element now
22:58
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: though neither does my linux system
22:58
<sbalneav>
well, THAT's a problem then
22:58
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: my linux system builds it fine without a waitid manpage
22:59
<sbalneav>
so, this is a freebsd kernel?
22:59
<vagrantc>
yeah, with mostly GNU userspace
22:59
<johnny>
gentoo can do that too
22:59
their freebsd project is pretty active
23:00
<vagrantc>
of course, i've also been working on a more true FreeBSD variant as well
23:00
<johnny>
i have yet to try it tho
23:00
<sbalneav>
http://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/manual/html_node/waitid.html
23:00
<vagrantc>
virtualbox is great for that sort of thing :)
23:00
<sbalneav>
waitid's a kernel call, so it's dependent on the kernel.
23:01
<vagrantc>
indeed.
23:01
<johnny>
guess we should be utsp..
23:01
<sbalneav>
So, we'd have to use a simpler function.
23:01
does it have waitpid?
23:01
<johnny>
it should..
23:02
<sbalneav>
Well it SHOULD have waitid, since it's a posix function :)
23:02
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: i wouldn't break what we have if it's working just to get a piece of FreeBSD :)

23:03
<vagrantc>
i guess ifdef's could keep it free from breaking other wackiness
23:03
<sbalneav>
Well, I used waitid simply because it combines 2 or 3 "lower level calls" into one nice bundle.
23:04
<vagrantc>
and that's a good thing, no?
23:04
<johnny>
can't you defined waitid then?
23:04
define*
23:05
sbalneav, we should get you kicking gnome where it hurts (ltsp)
23:05
<sbalneav>
Well, it's a good thing for readability, but if it means you can't compile ldm on a potential target platform, I'm willing to sacrifice some readability. :)

Kick gnome? I like gnome.

Both gnome and kde in general work pretty nicely with LTSP. Me, I'm perfectly happy using twm, so my personal bar's pretty low.
23:09
<johnny>
sbalneav, sure.. in general :)
23:09
<vagrantc>
johnny: for a specific reason?
23:09
<johnny>
that's what i'm trying to come up with :)
23:09
<vagrantc>
twm was a bloated example
23:10
<johnny>
sbalneav, like coding up a secure dbus/tcp bridge
23:10
<sbalneav>
Bad example: dbus isn't gnome's fault. :)
23:38
<johnny>
actually it sorta is :)
23:38
but that was on another train of thought altogether
23:38
i followed the planets since that time ..and gnome developers were definitely involved :)
23:38
cuz corba is evil
23:39ME_nerd has joined #ltsp

just that a proper dbus/tcp bridge would help ltsp
23:39

What's the dbus api like? Wouldn't it be pretty easy to write that bridge....

i've done minimal stuff with dbus...

it's the secure part that is hardest
23:40
<chrisinajar>
tcps....
23:40
<johnny>
it actually needs to be exposed as a socket
23:40
that can only be read by the user
23:40
<chrisinajar>
that's wicked easy to do :-P
23:40
<vagrantc>
on another computer?
23:40
<chrisinajar>
sockets != tcp...
23:41
<johnny>
that's the problem :)
23:41
<chrisinajar>
indeed, but just do a basic authentication...
23:41
<johnny>
dbus/tcp actually exists..
23:41
<chrisinajar>
i assume it just doesn't support auth?
23:41
<johnny>
it's just not good enough
23:42
well.. you can discuss with these fine gentlemen about how to do it best for ltsp
23:42
<chrisinajar>
just write a little proxy tcp protocl for relaying dbus to and from... implement some auth and optional SSL...
23:42
<johnny>
i'm sure they would love something like that :)
23:44
<chrisinajar>
well, i can't really say how something like that would be implemented as i don't really know how dbus works or what you guys want with it...
23:45
<ME_nerd>
hi all. (sorry to break it) Is this the right place to look for a little help resolving an issues during login on LTSP-5?

23:47

I am having a few issues and I can't really sort out what is what. I am booting the PXE image off of one server and then trying to connect to a different X server
23:48
<sbalneav>
If you're trying to connect to a different server, have you added their ssh host keys to the chroot?
23:48
<chrisinajar>
ME_nerd: I don't use LTSP, so don't take what i say to heart...... check out /var/log/auth.log on the server you're trying to get into...
23:48
<ME_nerd>
i can get LDM up, but then I get the "not authorized to connect to this server" message. I tried the sshkey update
23:48
aaaahhh
23:48
that is what i was looking for
23:49
<chrisinajar>
sometimes it has really useful messages in there...
23:49
<ME_nerd>
can i get more info on adding the keys
23:49
<johnny>
adding the keys?
23:49
<ME_nerd>
sorry, adding the ssh host keys to the chroot
23:49

as sbalneav said
23:49

<johnny>
duh
23:50
just copy em :)
23:50
and rebuild your image
23:50
uggh.. sleepy
23:50alkisg has joined #ltsp

<sbalneav>
!doco
23:50
<ltspbot>
sbalneav: "doco" is you can find the link to the latest, and most current upstream documentation at: http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream
23:50
<sbalneav>
Section 17.7
23:51
<ME_nerd>
nice
23:51
<sbalneav>
does the "other" server have ltsp-update-sshkeys installed?
23:51
<ME_nerd>
oh..... yeah, for some reason i was ignoring the upstream docs
23:51
<chrisinajar>
so has anyone done any hard benching on using NBD over NFS? or is it just sort of a common understanding that we
23:51
<ME_nerd>
that was dumn
23:51
dumb
23:51
<chrisinajar>
re pretty sure it's faster
23:51
<ME_nerd>
ok, i also had another non ssh key issue
23:52
<sbalneav>
If so, ltsp-update-sshkeys --export <file> on that one, copy file to chroot server ltsp-update-sshkeys --import <file> and rebuild chroot.
23:52
<ME_nerd>
in order to get around the ssh problem, I turned it all off with ldm_directx = true and screen_07 = startx
23:53
i got the login screen for the x server and could start to log in
23:53
<chrisinajar>
so while i'm in boston i shall get a thin client to boot into xfce.... that is my goal....
23:53
<ME_nerd>
but then halfway through it would send me back to the login screen
23:53
<Ryan52>
sbalneav: does glib have something like chomp? :). or, what would be the most gliby way to do that?
23:54
<sbalneav>
Ryan52: I theeenkso
23:54
hold on
23:54
http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/unstable/glib-String-Utility-Functions.html#g-strchomp
23:54
Why, yes!
23:54
<johnny>
faster..
23:55
<sbalneav>
Yes it does.
23:55
<Ryan52>
ah, thanks. :P
23:55
<johnny>
we didn't start using nbd for no reason
23:55
it was always nfs before.. nbd came about because it was improved.. otherwise nobody would want to put up with the hassle of ltsp-update-image :)
23:55
<sbalneav>
ME_nerd: Not sure on that one.
23:55
how much ram in the client.
23:56
<johnny>
altho somebody in some channel recommended me to apply a patch to ssh to disable encryption except for auth. and that made it faster than nfs
23:56
<ME_nerd>
sbalneav: alright, i will go head on into the other problem and see if it solves itself
23:56
<chrisinajar>
johnny: i just haven't personnaly witnessed it, how significant is the speed increase?
23:56
<johnny>
ask ogra
23:56
i'm sure he probably has real numbers
23:56
<sbalneav>
chrisinajar: Another big plus for nbd: it's not nfs. Lots of sites have internal policy's that ban NFS. Mainly because it's a kernel service and runs in ring 0
23:57
<johnny>
aha.j. there is that :)
23:57
<sbalneav>
nbd's a userspace goober that runs as nobody.
23:57
<chrisinajar>
cooool
23:57
<johnny>
wasn't there a userspace nfs implementation?
23:57
<sbalneav>
yeah
23:57
<chrisinajar>
I think so, i'm pretty sure that's what we use...
23:57* chrisinajar is not positive..
23:57
<johnny>
sbalneav, have you heard of this patch to ssh that allows you to remove encryption except for auth?
23:57
<sbalneav>
They're usually not that fast.
23:58
yeah
23:58
cipher "none"
23:58
-c none
23:58
<johnny>
and the auth is still ?
23:58
<sbalneav>
auth is, yeah
23:58
but after that, it's like passthrough.
23:58
<johnny>
i hear it is uberfast.. not sure
23:58
<sbalneav>
Well, it's faster
23:59
<johnny>
definitely faster than smb i'm sure
23:59
<vagrantc>
the inability to get that patch applied resulted in LDM_DIRECTX ... which mostly addresses that issue for LDM
23:59
<johnny>
perhaps not faster than nbd..
23:59
<sbalneav>
LDM_DIRECTX is fastest, and doesn't require patching your sshd
