Hi.
05:43
I've installed an LTSP Server with NX connexion (scripts screen.d found on the net)
05:44
And Iwrote scripts to make local drives work in this case.
05:44
If your interested to publish them somewhere with LTSP documentation, I can send them to you.
05:45
<cyberorg>
eric__, hi, send them over on ltsp-developer mailing list :)
05:45
<eric__>
OK, how can I make that ?

08:07vvinet has joined #ltsp
08:08

nomad uses the ubuntu LTS release structure ?
08:10
<cyberorg>
ogra, SLED 11 is 7 year support, the idea is to virtualize it on SLES and provide experience of using normal desktop remotely
08:11
<maginot>
Good morning. Can anyone explain why is my passwd authentication in the client taking about 15 to 20 seconds to validate? Im testing with a direct cable (no switch) using a gigabit card in both client and server. My ltsp version is 5 and im on ubuntu 8.10
08:12
<ogra>
cyberorg, you dont understand :)
08:17
cyberorg, ubuntu lts means making a *free* os available for a long term period and promising support and updates ... nothing to do with any enterprise crap ... redhat copying that scheme for their free variant (after copying plenty of other stuff for it like the 6month release cycle, community handling etc from ubuntu ...) was the part thats funny here
08:18* ogra waits for suse announcing opensuse LTS now :)
08:18
<cyberorg>
ah ok, opensuse is supported for 2 years only
08:18
<ogra>
*yet* ;)
08:19
<cyberorg>
i dont see opensuse LTS coming anytime soon officially, but via build service community can keep supporting stuff indefinitly

... its now taking 22 seconds to validate the password that the user inputs in the client ldm login screen... im using ubuntu 8.10 ltsp5 (installed using apt-get)
09:01
<Gadi>
maginot: do you have remote logging enabled?
09:03
<maginot>
Gadi, Well .. can you explain me what remote logging are you asking?
09:04
<Gadi>
by default, if you set the server's syslog to accept remote connections, the thin client will flood the network with syslog messages from the client
09:04
this can make other services take longer
09:04
that's one thing to look at
09:04
another would be DNS
09:05
if hostname resolution takes a while on your server, then many services will run slower from machines for which there is no DNS lookup
09:14
<maginot>
Gadi, I'm testing the server without any connecter beyond the client, so its the server connected to the client after a default ubuntu install (I recompiled the kernel to support 32gb of memory) and a default ltsp install .... I think the only thing that you quoted that may causing problems is DNS.. I will take a look

09:44hanthana has quit IRC
09:50
<maginot>
what happened to ltspinfo ? isnt available anymore?
09:51
<Gadi>
maginot: I believe there is a bug in shutdown from LDM where it does not work after a logout
09:51
also, ltspinfo was insecure, so it was not included in LTSP5
09:51mikkel_ has quit IRC
09:51
<maginot>
Gadi, so how do the client must proceed to shutdown the client?
09:51
<Lumiere>
just turn it off?
09:51
<Gadi>
power button
09:51
<maginot>
hMmm
09:52
<Lumiere>
maginot: there's nothing stored on the clients
09:52
so there's nothing to be damaged if you turn it off
09:53
<maginot>
Lumiere, sorry for the ignorance here, is that Im used to ltsp5 on ubuntu 7.10 and there the client usualy shutdown the client... now for what you are tell me this option is broken an then he must power off the box directly ?
09:54
<Gadi>
maginot: correct. Instead of a click of the mouse, its a push of a button
09:54
until the bug is fixed
09:55
if you would like to help fix/test a fix for the bug, I am happy to help you resolve it so we can fix it upstream
09:55
:)
09:56CAN-o-SPAM has joined #ltsp

<maginot>
Gadi, well, here I have already a production ltsp working for 35 clients, what Im doing know is testing and Fixing any problem that could happen with ltsp on 8.10 (I was hoping to test with ubuntu 9.04) so if I can help you anyway test or fix any bug of ltsp I must say that you can count on me anytime
09:57
<Gadi>
excellent!
09:57
usually the little bugs don't get fixed for lack of testers
09:58
<maginot>
Gadi, we are using a HP Proliant ML350 - 2 x Quad Xeon 2.33Ghz with 32GB of memory
09:58
and if helps we have a 1gb network backbone connection
09:59* Lumiere drools on maginot's server
10:00
<maginot>
and Im very interest about working together helping with what I can... and if you need I can garantee you an access user so you can help remotly on the tests
10:01
<evilx>
I have a question, is there away to make it so when ltsp users are going to websites internally it uses their actual machine ip and not the machine of the ltsp server?
10:02
<maginot>
please, if you have interest about using our server for further test call me in pvt so I could tell more about who Im and what our organization do

evilx: run firefox as a local app
10:04
<evilx>
?
10:04
<Gadi>
ltsp-localapps firefox
10:04
<evilx>
huh, I didnt know about that
10:04
<Gadi>
(you need to install firefox and plugins in the chroot first)
10:05
then, firefox will run locally on the thin client
10:05
rather than on the server
10:05
<evilx>
okay, ill check that out thanks
10:05
<Gadi>
np
10:05
requires pretty recent LTSP
10:05
<evilx>
I was wondering if that was possible or not.
10:05
I have 5 installed
10:05
<Gadi>
what distro?
10:06
<evilx>
ubuntu 8.10 i think
10:06
<Gadi>
evilx: ok. should be good then
10:06* Gadi thanks maginot for offer to help
10:08
<evilx>
i just set LTSP-LOCALAPPS in lts.conf?
10:08
<Gadi>
no. LOCAL_APPS=True
10:08
(but that should be default)
10:09
you will need to install firefox in the chroot and reroll the image
10:09
<evilx>
i have firefox installed in the chroot already
10:09
<Gadi>
ah, ok
10:10
there is a script on the server in the doc folder called ltsp-localapps
10:10
that you can copy to /usr/bin
10:10
and use as a way to launch local firefox
10:10
alternatively, if you have a new enough version of LTSP in there, you can set:
10:10
LOCAL_APPS_MENU=True
10:10
and optionally:
10:11
LOCAL_APPS_MENU_ITEMS=firefox
10:12
those should replace the menu items for firefox to the local app firefox

10:55
<evilx>
Gadi, I dont see anything in docs called ltsp-localapps
10:55vagrantc has joined #ltsp
10:56

i found ltsp-localapps executeable though
10:56
<Gadi>
right, thst
10:56
*that
10:57
<evilx>
yeah, but wish I could get the doc on how it used
10:57
<Gadi>
open a terminal and type: ltsp-localapps "<executable>"
10:57
or read the script
10:57
<evilx>
so is that just it, i have ltsp-localapps execute the application
10:57
<Gadi>
its a simple shell script
10:58
<evilx>
ill give it a whirl and see what happens

Does anybody know how to make Digicams accessible plugged in via USB on an LTSP thin client (removable disk protocol).
12:07
It does seem like LTSP does not recognize SD card readers.
12:08
I mean the internal ones the Camera does provide.

<Skarmeth>
hey guy's
12:09
anyone here using ltsp 5 with fedora 9?
12:10
I installed ltsp-server in a F9 system and when the thin client tries to boot up, it fail with a error message
12:10
<Lns>
humbolt: do the cams have *any* special software requirements to see as a removable device? if not, you should be fine afaik. As long as you can plug in a USB thumbdrive, i don't see why it wouldn't work
12:10
<Ryan52>
Skarmeth: and that error message is?
12:10
<Skarmeth>
that says mount was not found
12:10
<humbolt>
Lns: no, they appear as removable disk (not this p-t-p protocol, or whatever it is called)
12:11
<Skarmeth>
I made a copy of initrd to another system, ungzipped it, then un-cpio it and searched for mount and I don't found it
12:11
<Lns>
humbolt: are you able to see "normal" usb thumb drives?
12:11
<humbolt>
yes
12:11
<Lns>
humbolt: hmm
12:11
<humbolt>
yes
12:11
that's what I thought
12:12
<Lns>
humbolt: have you taken the SD out of the cam and put it in a card reader?
12:12
<humbolt>
I guess the daemon on the client is not starting connections to the client on these kinds of devices
12:12
as they clearly come up as sd media
12:12
<Lns>
(my own Nokia camera phone shows up without problems on my ltsp client in ubuntu)
12:13
<humbolt>
really
12:13
hmm
12:13
<Lns>
humbolt: yeah - but the internal memory usually doesn't, but I don't store anything on that so i never worried about it
12:13
<humbolt>
works only with hotplugged media, I guess.
12:14
but good to know already, that it comes up on your client
12:14
<Lns>
humbolt: yeah.. but you know, every device is probably unique.. does it come up on the server?
12:17
<humbolt>
I have to check
12:17
Have not had it in my hands personally yet
12:18
<Lns>
humbolt: I'd do that first to make sure it shows up on a non-TC
12:18
then yo ucan go from there
12:19
<humbolt>
Yes
12:19
Thing is,
12:20
it does not even show up in the clients own SD cardreader. And this one should work under linux as the client is an eee box.
12:21
<Lns>
humbolt: you mean when the eee is booted to local install?
12:21
<humbolt>
with the original linux software on it, it works
12:22
<Lns>
humbolt: well the cam has its own little comm protocol which may or may not be standard
12:22
so i'd first make sure it works in the ltsp server
12:22
from the cam
12:22
<humbolt>
yes, I'll do that
12:23
tnx
12:23
<Lns>
np, good luck =)
12:24
LTSP servers don't have a standard way of knowing what TCs are connected to it, right? I mean, an LTSP specific "These are thin clients, these are TC users logged in", etc? right?
12:26
<humbolt>
I don't know
12:26
actually there must be a way
12:27
as the thin-client-manager does know
12:29
<Lns>
I had an idea the other day that might or might not be a good idea(tm), involving a default ssh tunnel being established from TC to SERVER when it's booted, for command/control purposes from the server console itself
12:29
so admins can log into TCs remotely, start programs, get a VNC connection, shut down, blah blah blah
12:30
without having to use an ssh server on the TC
12:30
<humbolt>
as far as I know ldm does create a tunnel
12:30
but maybe only after login
12:30
or for login
12:30
I have to less insight on that
12:30
<Lns>
that's what i'm not sure about either
12:30
<humbolt>
so, have fun reading the code
12:31
<Lns>
IMHO LTSP is at the point to where we should start thinking about integrating real management tools such as this
12:31
humbolt: ;)
12:32
<humbolt>
check out the ltsp manager, don't know the exact name. Is a package on ubuntu. it does already provide the vnc stuff!
12:33
<Lns>
It seems that iTalc would take care of a lot of this, but i wasn't sure if it was easy/feasable to use it in a not-logged-in workstation or whatnot..i need to go read the docs again
12:33Appiah has joined #ltsp
12:36warren has joined #ltsp
12:36
<Lns>
yeah.. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/iTalc is probably the best bet for this =) what would be really cool is to pair that up with some ltsp/DE specific tweaking functionality such as what sabayon/pessulus tries to do
12:38
<ogra>
Lns, ps ax|grep LTSP_CLIENT :)
12:39
or better ps aux|grep LTSP_CLIENT
12:39
LTSP_CLIENT is set for every user on login and shows up in the ssh command
12:39
<Lns>
ogra: oooo :)
12:40
<ogra>
(unless that changes since i looked last)
12:40
<Lns>
leave it to ogra to point out the obvious to those searching for a cryptic answer!! hehe
12:43
<stgraber>
ogra: didn't change
12:43
<Lns>
ogra: ok, but this doesn't work for non-logged-in users
12:43
<ogra>
indeed
12:43
you asked for: an LTSP specific "These are thin clients, these are TC users logged in"
12:44
for non logged in users you wont get login data indeed :P
12:44
<Lns>
ogra: right.. so can this be accomplished with what's already going on in the chroot/ldm? as in, "this is a booted TC but sitting at ldm" ?

maginot: I don't know about acroread, just curious though, why not use evince?
13:51
<ogra>
didnt maginot run ubuntu ? acroread is in the medibuntu repos for 8.10
13:51
http://packages.medibuntu.org/intrepid/index.html at least indicates so
13:52
<maginot>
Hmmm okay...
13:53
Lns, Im not using evince because we have some pdf files that uses barcode and evince crashs
13:53
but I was able to run acroread localy already
13:53
=)
13:54
the only thing I still not able to do is run parameters like "ltsp-localapps acroread somepdf.pdf"
13:55
<ogra>
stgraber, oh, while i see maginot saying that, a mime overlay for localapps would rock hard :) (so that gnome-open would actually open pdfs with the loaclapp)
13:55
<maginot>
now the most important thing that must work is j2re 1.4.2.06 lets see if works and if works localy
13:56
<ogra>
wow you will need beefy clients for that
13:56
<maginot>
ogra, well, all clients are Core Duo with 512 ~1gb of ram
13:56
<ogra>
though i'm not sure 1.4 even exists anywhere anymore ... i think that was dropped loong ago
13:56
why dont you use suns latest jre ?
13:57
thats properly packaged and in the archive
13:58
<maginot>
ogra, for some strange reason Oracle uses that thing called jinit, and seens not to exist a linux version of that so THEY told us to use this specific version, we already tried other version but only in this version IAS works
13:58
<ogra>
odd
13:58
<maginot>
you have no idea of how much we suffer with this old version
13:59
<ogra>
thats not even supported upstream anymore and surely has security holes
13:59
<maginot>
to work here I have to convert using alien from rpm to deb and then install
13:59
<ogra>
evil that oracle doesnt compile against a newer java
13:59
ugh ... alien
13:59
you might run into unexcpected crashes etc
14:00
<maginot>
yeah, I think thas because they have jinit for windows, so windows can run jre5 and jinit at same time
14:01
<Skarmeth>
there is any easy way to enable NBD boot for Debian?
14:01
I was trying to compare Ubuntu instructions to Debian, but it differ
14:01
<maginot>
ogra, well, I have to admit that our worsty problem is with acrobat and the fact that this j2re version doesnt run most onlinebanks
14:02
but here in our test loading acrobat localy is much much faster
14:03
100% faster for loading (from 4 seconds to 2seconds) and there is no comparison about scrolling and using the pdf files
14:04
if our java version works like it should so I will have a green light for putting this 8.10 at production
14:04
=)
14:05
<stgraber>
ogra: indeed
14:07
<maginot>
stgraber, hey, I talk with Gadi sooner about using our server to make some test and help fixing some bugs on ltsp, he told me that you are one of the responsable for the ubuntu releases and told that was going to talk to you about this idea
14:10
<stgraber>
maginot: I sent an e-mail to edubuntu-users, edubuntu-devel and ubuntu-qa about that a day or two ago
14:10
about the new things in Jaunty and what should be tested
14:10
<maginot>
sorry, but Im not making part of any devel team (yet) today I came here talking about some issues and offered our server to be a test enviorment
14:12
stgraber, he said that was going to talk to you later after his meeting
14:14
<stgraber>
sure, just have a look at that mail, it contains things that should be tested, it isn't targeted to developers specificaly
14:15
<maginot>
stgraber, okay I will
14:15
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: yes, it's possible, but the easiest way is to use the commandline flags to ltsp-build-client: "ltsp-build-client --squashfs-image" will get you something similar to how ubuntu does it.

humm, but I have a full functional chroot (i386) running, I just want to change from NFS to NBD to make a test
14:20
I am experiencing a poor performance for a 1GbE server wirh 2G RAM and one Core 2 Duo processor running Firefox (for one user)
14:23
removing the boot=nfs option from pxelinux.cfg/default don't change the boot behavior
14:24
there is additional steps to change from NFS to NBD
14:24
<Appiah>
that's not LTSP 5 I'd guess?
14:33
<Skarmeth>
Appiah, my one? yes, this is a ltsp 5 (debian lenny)
14:34
<Appiah>
then it should be using NBD
14:34
unless you changed it

stgraber: just started another round of translation updates; i'm guessing you're not on the debian-l10n-french list, but you were the last translator ... i'm guessing they'll want to do review or something.
14:56
<CAN-o-SPAM>
vagrantc: should i send you a copy of rosetta stone? ;)
14:57
<vagrantc>
heh
15:05
<Skarmeth>
there is a https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToSetupLTSPDevelEnvironment
15:05
that show how to change from NFS to NBD
15:06
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: if you look at the plugins in /usr/share/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/Debian/095-squashfs-image it should show you what you need to add to the chroot to get it working
15:06
<Skarmeth>
I was looking there
15:07
but it don't work with just that
15:07
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: basically, you need to have an appropriate aufs-modules and squashfs-modules package installed in the chroot
15:07
<Skarmeth>
the URL above have a script that change the env and it almost worked
15:07
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: then you need to rebuild the initramfs, and then you need to run ltsp-update-image, and then you need to configure a couple server-side scripts
15:08
<Skarmeth>
the nbdrootd are running
15:08
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: you'll also want to set BOOTPROMPT_OPTS in the chroot
15:08
<Skarmeth>
s/are/is
15:08
yep, done
15:08
<vagrantc>
ltsp-update-kernels?
15:08
<Skarmeth>
just updating the image to see if worked
15:09
I created the ${LTSP_ROOT}/etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf file and add the options there
15:10
then I ran initramfs update script, ltsp-update-kernels and ltsp-update-image
15:10maginot has quit IRC
15:12
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: "initramfs update script" ?
15:13
<Skarmeth>
update-initramfs
15:13
<vagrantc>
and it actually updated the initramfs image?
15:13
<Skarmeth>
yep
15:13
<vagrantc>
usually called as "chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 update-initramfs -u"
15:13
<Skarmeth>
yes, this one
15:14
<vagrantc>
or with newer versions, ltsp-chroot update-initramfs -u
15:14
Skarmeth: ok, so what's in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default ?
15:15
<Skarmeth>
it don't changed
15:15
<vagrantc>
it's been a while since i tested any of the NBD related features with debian ... i pretty much got them working, and then just hoped they wouldn't break themselves.
15:15
<Skarmeth>
so I added options manually
15:16
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: ok, so what's in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default ?
15:17
Skarmeth: could you cut-and-paste the contents? if it's longer than a couple of lines, to the pastebot
15:17
<Skarmeth>
DEFAULT vmlinuz ro initrd=initrd.img quiet root=/dev/nfs ip=dhcp boot=nfs
15:17
vagrantc, no it's just one line
15:17
<vagrantc>
right.'
15:17
<Skarmeth>
but this is wrong as of plugins for fs-image and squashfs
15:18
<vagrantc>
"as of" ?
15:18pmatulis has quit IRC

15:19
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: and you configured BOOTPROMPT_OPTS in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf ?
15:19
<Skarmeth>
added to ${LTSP_ROOT}/etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf
15:20
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: so the contents of ${LTSP_ROOT}/etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf is?
15:20
<Skarmeth>
and for 095-squashfs-image: BOOTPROMPT_OPTS=${BOOTPROMPT_OPTS:-"quiet ip=dhcp boot=ltsp_nbd"}
15:21
BOOTPROMPT_OPTS="quiet root=/dev/nbd0 ip=dhcp boot=local nbdroot=192.168.0.83,2000
15:21
manually added by my (following the script)
15:23
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: if you want it like the ubuntu variant, you'll need the one from 095-squashfs-image
15:24
although i guess that method *should* work too.
15:24
presuming the squashfs modules are in the initramfs...
15:25
Skarmeth: ah. need to run the update script in the chroot.
15:25
<Skarmeth>
update-initramfs ?
15:25
<vagrantc>
no, the ltsp-specific parts ...
15:25* vagrantc looks
15:26
<vagrantc>
Skarmeth: chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 /usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels
15:26
normally runs automatically as part of kernel installs ...
15:27
and ltsp-update-kernels *used* to do that, but at some point someone purged it to simplify the code.
15:27
<Skarmeth>
ok, let me check
15:27
<vagrantc>
i should look into update-initramfs to see if there are hooks we could plug into for it
15:27
i recally i looked at one point and couldn't find a good place, but that was a while ago.
15:28
Skarmeth: would be good to document this stuff in wiki.debian.org/LTSP someplace ... converting between NFS/NBD and all the possible permitations
