<vagrantc>
heh
00:01
well, sometimes it's good to publish a branch with major changes for review before committing to trunk, is all.
00:02
it also helps reduce the noise in the commit logs when features are merged (at least, if you default to using "bzr log --short")
00:05
stgraber: ldm 2.0.28 is in http://incoming.debian.org for the next 1-2 hours ... if you care to grab it.
00:06
and then it disappears for a while until it hits the real mirrors.
00:07
that's enough uploading for one night :)

<Ryan52>
vagrantc, why does #485795 still appear open? is it because it hasn't gotten an email to "485795-done@b.d.o"? is that intentional?
00:30
0_o. looks like I have bigger problems to take care of. crap.

00:58
<Ryan52>
daredevilthere, look at /usr/share/doc/ltsp-server/QuickInstall
00:58
not sure if it's up to date, but it's worth a try ;)
00:58
if not, see this:
00:58
!docs
00:58
<ltspbot>
Ryan52: "docs" is For the most current documentation, see http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream
00:59
<Ryan52>

<daredevilthere>
Ryan52: alrite
01:02
It says me to intall some pakages .
01:02
do i have to install something on the other pc to or on just on pc running ltsp
01:03
<Ryan52>
only the main server
01:04
you never have to do anything on the other computer
01:04
<daredevilthere>
Ryan52: alrite
01:04
<Ryan52>
it's hard drive is ignored

Ryan52: i have wimax router through which i connect 2 pc's do i need to chage some router settings too
01:07
<Ryan52>
if it's a router, then you may need to disable the dhcp server on it.
01:07
if it's just a switch/hub, then it will be fine.
01:07
<daredevilthere>
alrite i disable dhcp in it

Hey i need some help
02:42
i installed lstp-server and dhcp3-server
02:42
but dhcp3-server is not starting
02:44
<Ryan52>
what's the error?
02:44
<daredevilthere>
whn i start it it fails
02:45
<Ryan52>
okay, but what's the error?
02:45
fail means nothing to me.
02:45
check /var/log/daemon.log
02:45
or maybe /var/log/syslog
02:46
<daredevilthere>
c this http://paste.ubuntu.com/103065/
02:47
<Ryan52>
in the example, you need to change 192.168.15 to your actual network addr.
02:47
err, change 192.168.0 to your actual
02:48
<daredevilthere>
network address of my pc
02:48
<Ryan52>
well, no.
02:48
the network..
02:49* Ryan52 can't think of the word
02:50
<Ryan52>
okay.
02:50
<daredevilthere>
i did by changing it but at lat i get this Not configured to listen on any interfaces!
02:50
<Ryan52>
change "next-server 192.168.0.1;" to your systems ip.
02:50
change "subnet 192.168.0.0" to "subnet 192.168.15.0"
02:50
change "range 192.168.0.20 192.168.0.250;" to "range 192.168.15.20 192.168.15.250;"
02:51
change the domain-name-servers, broadcast-address, routers to whatever works for your network.
02:51
<daredevilthere>
u mean change in here /etc/ltsp/dhcp.conf
02:55
<Ryan52>
wherever your dhcp config is...
02:55
probably in /etc/dhcp3/
02:55
but it might be in /etc/ltsp/dhcp.conf
02:56* Ryan52 doesn't know about Ubuntu specific stuff
03:03
<daredevilthere>
no problem
03:03
:)
03:04
Ryan52: Its started . thanks
03:04
:)
03:04
<Ryan52>
yay! good job! :)
03:04
<daredevilthere>
but wht does next-server means
03:05
<Ryan52>
thats the server that it tries to talk to get the ltsp stuff from.
03:05
so it would be your ip.
03:05
<daredevilthere>
Oh alrite
03:06
Ryan52: one more question. Do we next to configure etho to static ip before starting dhcp3-server
03:06
<Ryan52>
yeah, you should.
03:07
<daredevilthere>
oh that was the mistake i was making
03:07
i though dhcp would itself configure it
03:15
Ryan52: i m getting some error again
03:23
Its retrieving some pakages

Hey all
05:06
while running sudo ltsp-build-client my pc restart now do i have to remove all pakages and restart all over again
05:10
<Appiah>
you could just remove the client it was building
05:10
and run ltsp-build-client again
05:11
<daredevilthere>
Appiah: will it resume frm where i left or downlaod all pakages again
05:11
<Appiah>
/opt/ltsp/i386
05:11
if it's LTSP5
05:11
no it will start over
05:11
<daredevilthere>
can i resume it coz it was abt to end whn problem account
05:12
accured
05:12
<Appiah>
does it take long to build on your server?
05:12
that long that you can't just restart?
05:13
I have no idea on how to resume , maybe chroot into the client image , run apt-get -f install and see if it resums
05:13
<daredevilthere>
Appiah: no it was downloading linux image whn my pc restarted some electrity problem
05:13
<Appiah>
then run each step that the ltsp-build-client script does by hand or ltsp-update-image
05:13
but that's just a guess
05:13
much more safe if you just restart it
05:14
rm -rf /opt/ltsp/i386 , then ltsp-build-client
05:15
<daredevilthere>
well are all these pakages are installed on my system or just in /opt directory
05:15
<Appiah>
ltsp-build-client only install packages in the client image /opt/ltsp/~arch
05:15
~arch = i386 example
05:16
so they are not in your system
05:16
but in the "client" system
05:17
<daredevilthere>
Oh rite
05:18
<Appiah>
but that client image is proboly corrupted so much safer to just delete and build it again
05:18
<daredevilthere>
wht about if i use sudo ltsp-build-client --extra-help
05:19
<Appiah>
well that probly displays more then I know about the ltsp-build-client script :D
05:19
good luck
05:19
<daredevilthere>
some option so that it installs frm pc all deb files that i alrady have
05:19
<Appiah>
Do you have a really slow connection or a slow computer?
05:19
beacuse if you just did a remove and then build again you would be done now...
05:20
<daredevilthere>
not that slow but still it takes time.512kbps
05:21
<Appiah>
ah ok
05:21
<daredevilthere>
alrite but can i install it frm a cd ?
05:21
<Appiah>
think there's a mirror option
05:21
--mirror
05:22
check the manual/help
05:22
--mirror http://mylocalserver or --mirror file://cdrom
05:22
but check the help I never used it
05:22
<daredevilthere>
oralrite
05:23
alrite let me check

hi
09:13
hi
09:13
oops :)
09:16
i guess there is a public source code repository for ltsp? where?
09:16
<ogra>
https://code.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk
09:17
<moldy>
ogra: thanks
09:17
the ltsp web sites are somewhat confusing... lots of outdated stuff there :-/
09:18
<ogra>
yes, they need an overhaul
09:18
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream is the recent one
09:19
<moldy>
i am looking for the current trunk source of ldm
09:19
<ogra>
and then we have per distro pages on the respective distro helpsites
09:21
<moldy>
which vcs is that? bazaar? how do i checkout the repo?
09:22
<ogra>
its written at the top of the page
09:22
Get this branch: bzr branch lp:~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk
09:22
<moldy>
i don't see that
09:22
<ogra>
on https://code.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk ?
09:23
<moldy>
ahh
09:23
was looking at ./changes
09:23
thanks
09:23
<ogra>
ldm is respective https://code.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ldm-trunk
09:26
<moldy>
ogra: thanks. as i see, the trunk ldm/greeter has i18n support :)
09:27
good, no work for me :)
09:27
<ogra>
its there since a while
09:28
<moldy>
i'm still running ubuntu 8.04
09:29
<ogra>
ah, yeah, it entered ubuntu past 8.04
09:29
<moldy>
i guess i should consider an update
09:29
<ogra>
8.04 was very conservative, we kept most new features out of it and only fixed bugs that were known from 7.10
09:30
8.10 has all the new stuff
09:32
<moldy>
i'll give it a try soon
09:34
<ogra>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ btw, if you dont already know it
09:35
<moldy>
hm, looks interesting
09:35
i am running 8.04 ltsp quite successfully since a few months

::Ryan52:hmm okes, and another problem is that is there is a good tutorial of installation guide for fedora 9 ltsp
19:17
<johnny>
i think they recommend k12linux
19:23
<usman>
johnny, well i see its installation documnet at https://fedorahosted.org/k12linux/wiki/InstallGuide but its very confusing for me
19:23
johnny, do you have any other easy installation link
19:30
<johnny>
sorry i don't know anything about it
19:31
i only know how to do it on ubuntu and gentoo
19:32
<usman>
johnny, i have a ubuntu ver 5.10 cd, can you just give me a good link of installing ltsp on ubuntu because this will be my first try
19:32
<johnny>
5.10.. no
19:32
too old
19:32
waaay too old
19:33
it does mention the K12Linux LiveUSB respin
19:33
you could get that instead
19:33
if you are more familiar with fedora over ubuntu
19:34
<usman>
johnny, :s what i do man, i am really confused which i choose to install fedora or ubuntu for ltsp
19:35
<johnny>
that's up to whatever you are familiar with
19:35
<usman>
johnny, i am only familiar with fedora never touched ubuntu
19:36
<johnny>
sorry i cannot help. i have people coming over
19:36
try back later when more people are about
19:36
<usman>
johnny, ok
19:36
no problem

johnny: got a question on the genkernel modules. I'm not well versed in which cards are what drivers, till i walk through menuconfig. ifi want fairly broad support, what would you add?
