nubae, "AOE is used for fatclient implementation" partially true, AOE can be used in place of NBD for normal LTSP image
04:31alkisg has joined #ltsp
04:33
<cyberorg>
nubae, nice writeup, i am impressed :)
04:35
nubae, as you are now using openSUSE, get into habit of writing it as openSUSE instead of Opensuse ;)
04:42
dugg: http://digg.com/d1oaY8
04:56
<nubae>
ok
04:57
yeah, about AOE, I figured the 'special' thing about it is its used for fatclient, is that because its read/write?
04:57
<alkisg>
Hmm? nubae switched to openSUSE? Aaaah - good article...
04:58
<nubae>
well swich is a strong word... I am using both
04:58
<cyberorg>
nubae, no, we use ro /, mount /home as nfs rw
04:58
that make sense?
04:58
<nubae>
yeah, thats what I did with mine too
04:59
<cyberorg>
NBD can also be used for fat client, just that we have three options, nfs/nbd/aoe for /
04:59
<nubae>
for now, OPENsuse seems really impressive, bug free and much easier than it used to be to install/use
04:59
<cyberorg>
all in ro mode
04:59
<alkisg>
what's the openSUSE default? gnome or KDE?
04:59
<nubae>
oh... ok, then it is missleading
04:59
gnome
05:00
I wouldn't use kde... I tried that last time, and it was a big fiasco
05:00
<cyberorg>
alkisg, anything that pleases you, i can make one :)
05:00
nubae, it is turning out to be really good 4.2 onwards
05:00
<nubae>
I'll give it another half year :-)
05:01
<alkisg>
cyberorg: is customization easy for the live dvd? E.g. could I use it to add full greek language support (if it doesn't already include language-pack-gnome-el, that is...) ?
05:02
<cyberorg>
alkisg, yeah quite easy
05:02
alkisg, register for susestudio if you want real easy way
05:03
<nubae>
so whats the benefits of using AOE?
05:04
<cyberorg>
nubae, i didn't notice any, it is quite transparent whichever you use, AOE is supposed to be less resource intensive as it does away with extra TCP/IP layer or something like that
05:05
some market speak about it here http://en.opensuse.org/LTSP/AoE
05:13zer0c00l has joined #ltsp
05:15
<zer0c00l>
how could i take screenshots of ltsp booting process?
05:15
the pxe,tftp and etc
05:15
any software tools available?
05:17
<cyberorg>
zer0c00l, boot up client in a VM
05:17
<zer0c00l>
cyberorg, i tired it with virtual box it reported, cannot detect network interface card
05:18
any inbuilt VM available?
05:18
<cyberorg>
use newer virtualbox, networking is quite simple on that
05:23
<zer0c00l>
cyberorg, ok
05:23
cyberorg, it seems to be there is no driver in ramdisk for the emulated network cards of virtualbox :(
05:23
i use pxegrub
05:24
applied some patches to the grub
05:24
no grub says "No ethernet cards found"
05:24
may be grub is not supporting the emulated network card
05:24
<alkisg>
zer0c00l: have you tried all vbox nics? PCNET II, III, Intel etc?
05:25
<zer0c00l>
yes
05:25
PCNET
05:25
the grub loads only with PCNET II and III
05:25
<alkisg>
What grub? boot from lan...
05:27
<zer0c00l>
yeah
05:27
<alkisg>
In vbox, you press F12, select "boot from LAN" and then pxelinux.0 is loaded, right?
05:27
<zer0c00l>
alkisg, i use pxegrub
05:27
not pxelinux.0
05:27
i am not using it
05:28
may be the problem is with the grub which is not able to detect the emulated nic
05:29
alkisg, i did that "boot from lan"
05:29
<alkisg>
Why are you using pxegrub? I thought grub had an ancient version of etherboot in it..
05:30
<zer0c00l>
alkisg, i patched the grub
05:30
the patch is given by a person called adam
05:31
so that we dont need to compile the grub for each noc
05:31
*nic
05:31
<alkisg>
Ah. So you use the existing pxe network stack, or use network drivers?
05:31
<zer0c00l>
network drivers
05:31
<alkisg>
Because pxe is supposed to eliminate the need for drivers...
05:32
E.g. if I buy a brand new laptop and linux doesn't yet have drivers for it, pxe should still succeed...
05:32
(until the initramfs stage, that is...)
05:32
<zer0c00l>
alkisg, it says something like "No Pnp bios found; aborting"
05:32
and gives me the grub prompt
05:33
<alkisg>
zer0c00l: yeah, I think that's from a 2005 etherboot version :)
05:33
Very-very old code
05:33
<zer0c00l>
oh
05:33
what should i do?
05:33
<alkisg>
Use pxelinux?
05:33
<zer0c00l>
i still want to use pxegrub
05:33
:(
05:33
let me try
05:33
<alkisg>
pxelinux uses the pxe network stack, so it doens't need drivers
05:33
What is it that you want to do with pxegrub, that you can't do with pxelinux?
05:34
<zer0c00l>
showing the menu to the user..adding boot from local hardisk option
05:34
can we do that with pxelinux ?
05:34
<alkisg>
All that's possible with pxelinux
05:34
Yeah, e.g. see the debian netboot.tar.gz
05:34
<zer0c00l>
oh
05:34
<alkisg>
Or the ubuntu one (=a patched debian)
05:34
<zer0c00l>
ok
05:35
<alkisg>
Graphic menus, submenus, F1/F2 etc keys, localboot...
05:36
<zer0c00l>
alkisg, thanks for the help
05:36
i will use pxelinux then
05:36
<alkisg>
yw, good luck
05:38
zer0c00l: you may get netboot.tar.gz from here: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/
05:38
And here's how to declare the localboot menu: http://tjworld.net/wiki/Linux/Ubuntu/NetbootPxeLiveCDMultipleReleases
05:38
(LOCALBOOT 0 )
05:39
<zer0c00l>
alkisg, thanks

cyberorg: openSUSE needs a twitter client
05:44
I suggest gwibber, which does identi.ca too
05:44
<cyberorg>
nubae, there are tons :)
05:44
<nubae>
not on the edu dvd
05:44
<cyberorg>
use http://p.opensu.se to find one
05:44
ah, i'll add gwibber
05:46
<nubae>
I do like the web based install system, I know we have that on ubuntu too, but not to update repos
05:54
<cyberorg>
nubae, anything else?
05:54
<nubae>
I would add jclic and salasaga too
05:55
<cyberorg>
they are not packaged yet
05:55
<nubae>
can u make subcategories under education?
05:56
would be nice for teachers to know whats in their subject
05:57
<cyberorg>
that would required a lot of patching of .desktop files
05:57
they are now under "Edutainment"
05:58
<nubae>
how about putting another line under the apps, to show the subcat, or what subject they are for
05:59
under the description I mean
06:00
I guess there aren't too many apps, its still quite usable, but I always get the complaint from teachers that they dont know what something is for, so never bother trying it out
06:01
and weirdly missing are gimp and inkscape
06:06
<cyberorg>
i have included them in -unstable iso, as kernel update screwed up aufs haven't got around to adding to main image
06:07
i am contaminating -unstable with moonshine too so teachers can now watch "educational videos" http://abock.org/moonshine/
06:09

jrock2004, what distro/version are you using ? are you using lts.conf inside /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/ ?
09:35alexbodn has joined #ltsp
09:37
<alexbodn>
hello friends.
09:37
should the gnome suite be installed on the server, or rather on the client?
09:37
i presently need it for the clients only
09:37
<maginot>
alexbodn, what distro ?
09:38
<alexbodn>
maginot: debian testing/unstable/experimental
09:38
why would you think it matters?
09:38
<maginot>
Hmm okay, no experience with debian only ubuntu
09:38
=)
09:38
its a quite diferent
09:39
<alexbodn>
maginot: ubuntu is debian
09:39
<maginot>
for ubuntu you should install desktop version it comes with gnome ready to use and all you will need is ltsp-build-client
09:39
but its a different build
09:39
the install process its not equal for what I saw
09:40
<alexbodn>
so i suspect that build-client would copy packages from the server?
09:40
*packages contents
09:40
<gate_keeper_>
hey guys,
09:41
<maginot>
alexbodn, take a look http://www.ltsp.org/~sbalneav/LTSPManual.html
09:41
<gate_keeper_>
what can be an issue, when thin cilent hangs on "Starting kernel log daemon..."
09:41
?
09:41
ubuntu 8.04
09:42
<alexbodn>
maginot: np, just for the concept: the xserver (that dispays the info) is on each client (no matter in what ram it runs)
09:44
however the gnome packages are xclients, but should be invoked within the client process.
09:44
<maginot>
alexbodn, ltsp uses ldm to connect remotly using ssh ...
09:45
<alexbodn>
but is that kind of xdmcp?
09:46
<maginot>
kind of
09:46
<alexbodn>
so programs run on the ltsp server
09:47
<maginot>
alexbodn, well not exactly
09:47
alexbodn, and its possible with ltsp-local-apps to permit some application to load in the client using local process
09:47
<alexbodn>
i'd have an idea: i'll install a package on the server only, and see if i can use it
09:48
<maginot>
alexbodn, if you install something like skype in the server you can then use in the client, but modules and files that must run in the client only have effect after building the client image
09:49
<alexbodn>
that was your first think you said about ubuntu, isn't it?

<maginot>
jrock2004, are you following the right sintax ? take a look at the examples at http://www.ltsp.org/~sbalneav/LTSPManual.html
09:52
alexbodn, well, I have only experience with ubuntu here...
09:52

right. thanks a lot :)

you're welcome

<maginot>
jrock2004, ... and what is exactly you are trying to do thats not working ?
09:58
<jrock2004_>
maginot: well I can boot and i get the ubuntu splash but then after it loads and I would get to X all I get is a black screen
09:58
<maginot>
jrock2004, probably a video problem
09:58
<jrock2004_>
That is what I was thinking
09:58
<maginot>
try this
09:59
you can use on [default] or in the client configuration
09:59
CONFIGURE_X = true
09:59
XSERVER = auto

Does the ltsp server have to run its own dhcp server or can another server be configured to give out the necessary information? I ask because I am in the process of setting one up on a network that already has a dhcp server.
10:03
<maginot>
jhaig|home, you can use other dhcp server, but isnt so simple you will have to prepare the image so the client could boot using the image
10:03
<jrock2004__>
maginot: that did it

I assume, though, I can take the information from the dhcp setup on the ltsp server and just copy it onto the other dhcp server. I am installing ltsp via the Ubuntu 'alternative' disk which (I hope) sets everything up properly for you.

10:30alkisg has joined #ltsp
10:31
<richard_parker_v>
jhaig|home: your other/current dhcp server needs to have the ability to point to tftp server, root path, etc. If it is not a sophisticated dhcp server, it may be best to make the ltsp server your main dhcp server and shut off the other one
10:33
<jhaig|home>
richard_parker_v: Perhaps. I am going to set up another dhcp server anyway, but ltsp will be running in vmware, and I thought it would probably make more sense to have the dhcp server on the vmware host.
10:34
It will be running CentOS 5.3, which I would imagine would be sophisticated enough.
10:36
<alkisg>
It's also possible to use a proxydhcp server, to provide the boot filename but not the ip leases. This way it won't interfere with the current dhcp setup.
10:36
The latest dnsmasq test version supports that.

"alkisg" pasted "for stgraber" (32 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/300
11:07
<alkisg>
Started to reply in the bug report, but since you're here... :)
11:07
I don't know why this regression occured, but it's definately a regression.
11:09
stgraber, it could also cause data loss if localapps are used... it's not only about seeing greek in ldm, it affects the codepage of the chroot file system.
11:09
<stgraber>
alkisg: what's the content of /etc/environment in your chroot ?
11:09
<alkisg>
PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games"
11:10
<stgraber>
alkisg: because at the office I don't have a /etc/default/locale but I have the system translated
11:10
<alkisg>
It's the same in the server
11:10
<stgraber>
alkisg: ok, so that's wrong
11:10
<alkisg>
stgraber: it's the same in the server /etc/environment
11:10
What was I supposed to have there?
11:11
<stgraber>
hmm, ok, looks like something changed there.
11:11
root@ltsp180:~# cat /etc/environment
11:11
PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games"

Wow, let me look what it had in an intrepid server - it'll take me 2 minutes to boot it...
11:12
<stgraber>
and with that you'd get your system correctly translated ... that's what 025-locales in Ubuntu is generating but it's assuming that the server also has the locale defined there which doesn't seem to be the case anymore
11:12
<alkisg>
Ouch, so where should this be reported?
11:13
<stgraber>
I can prepare a fix for that but I have serious doubts it'll be included as it's not critical ...
11:13
<alkisg>
stgraber: well, if I install firefox as a localapp, I'll lose file system data. Isn't that critical?
11:14
I'll get a corrupted home directory in the server...
11:14
<stgraber>
except firefox isn't installed by default as a localapp so not critical because the default installation won't be a problem
11:15
<alkisg>
In Intrepid I do have the environment settings you said.
11:15
So it's definately a regression...
11:16
<stgraber>
and in intrepid you have /etc/default/locale in the chroot ?
11:16
<maginot>
alkisg, talking about installing firefox as a localapp... Im noticing that some files are being created under clients /tmp with 400 mode ... I had some problems to overide files and had to delete manualy to propery open them
11:16* vagrantc noticed that the localapps assume the same language that LDM is running as, *not* the same language that the user selected
11:17
<alkisg>
stgraber, no, I don't have default/locale, but the /etc/environment has the correct language settings.
11:17
<maginot>
vagrantc, LDM and Localapps only changed language after changing at /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/default/locale
11:18
at least was what happened here, but it 8.10, not intrepid
11:18
<stgraber>
alkisg: and on the server (intrepid) do you have the locale in /etc/environment ?
11:18
<vagrantc>
maginot: correct. but when you select a language from the menu, the started session will appear in the appropriate language for non-localapps
11:18
<alkisg>
Yes
11:18
<stgraber>
alkisg: ok, so that's what changed in jaunty
11:18
<alkisg>
So I guess the alternate cd installer now in Jaunty doesn't create the correct settings in /etc/environment
11:19
<maginot>
vagrantc, yeas, non localapps doesnt care with default/locale
11:19
<alkisg>
Yup... but it doesn't really affect the server, it only affects the ltsp clients...
11:19
<stgraber>
nothing to do with LTSP (last change to the locale code in ltsp was in february 2008)

<maginot>
and Im seeing this since 7.10
11:19
<stgraber>
will work on a quick fix now
11:19
<alkisg>
stgraber, thanks :)
11:22
<stgraber>
hmm, actually locale support will still be broken, just diferently
11:23
<maginot>
stgraber, what issue are you having ?
11:23
<stgraber>
copying the default/locale file will work if your chroot is using the same locale as the server
11:23
but the locale plugin is actually used to set a different language
11:24
<maginot>
hmmm
11:25
here Im using both equal I got nothing wrong ...
11:25
<alkisg>
stgraber: I think if you copy the logic from Debian/025-locales, it'll work ok..
11:26
<stgraber>
alkisg: yeah but that's way too much for a bugfix

alkisg: http://paste.ubuntu.com/150262/
11:27
alkisg: can you try building a new chroot with this one ?
11:28
<vagrantc>
stgraber: shouldn't you still check if /etc/environment exists before trying to copy it?
11:29
<stgraber>
vagrantc: hmm, indeed ... just in case someone removed it :) (AFAIK it comes with the base system on Ubuntu)
11:30
http://paste.ubuntu.com/150264/
11:30
(in this case we can end up with LANG=C in /etc/environment ... not good but no regression either)
11:31
<maginot>
seens redundant
11:31
<alkisg>
stgraber: what is the value of $LOCALE when the alternate cd runs ltsp-build-client?
11:31
Isn't it $LOCALE="C" ?
11:32
Ah, no, it should be en_GR, ok...
11:32
el_GR
11:36
stgraber: it won't copy the path, though
11:36
<stgraber>
it should be el_GR unless something cleared the environment
11:36
alkisg: I'm appending the locale the path should already be there
11:37
<alkisg>
Ah, ok. Well... let me see if I can call ltsp-build-client and tell it to use the alternate cd as a source...
11:38
I will report here later, or if you're not here, in the bug report. Thanks stgraber!
11:42
<stgraber>
np, just tell me soon enough, I don't think I can get anything in after today :)
11:42
<_UsUrPeR_>
stgraber: I am going to give ltsp-cluster a shot, and will be following the documentation for openVZ that you have on your wiki.
11:42
stgraber: which version of ubuntu server were you using when you made this? 8.10 or 8.04?
11:42
<stgraber>
tuesday-thursday will be RC, then we hope not to have any difference with final
11:42
_UsUrPeR_: only LTS releases have OpenVZ support (at least for now), so server will be 8.04
11:43
<alkisg>
stgraber: doing it right now... if anyone remember the exact parameter to pass to ltsp-build-client to use the alternate cd as a source, I'd be grateful...
11:44
<_UsUrPeR_>
stgraber: I noticed you were using server install specifically instead of desktop version. what was the reason behind that?
11:44
<stgraber>
--mirror file:///cdrom --security-mirror none
11:44
<alkisg>
ty
11:56
Erm... Somewhere near the end of ltsp-build-client, I got an error "Failed to retrieve file:/cdrom/dists/jaunty/Release Unable to find expected entry universe/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?) - I don't know, maybe my cd is bad.
11:56
Other than that, chroot/etc/environment now looks OK:
11:56
PATH="..."
11:56
LANG=el_GR.UTF-8
11:56
Without quotes in the LANG, but I think it'll work just fine.
11:57
stgraber ^^^ seems ok, please get it in :)
11:57
<stgraber>
alkisg: the error is quite easy, universe doesn't exist on the alternate cd :)
11:57
<alkisg>
Ah, ok :)
11:58
I installed some codecs on the server, so universe got in without me remembering it...
11:59johnny has left #ltsp
12:07
<stgraber>
alkisg: uploaded and poked the release managers, let's hope it'll be accepted
12:07
<alkisg>
stgraber: just a note for maybe a later release: on the server I do have a correct /etc/default/locale, so if it gets copied to the chroot, it would work...
12:07
Thanks :)
12:08
<stgraber>
alkisg: yeah but copying won't be enough, if I build with --locale fr_CH.UTF-8 on a el_GR.UTF-8 I expect my chroot to be fr_CH.UTF-8 not el_GR.UTF-8
12:09
<alkisg>
Right.
12:09* stgraber just uploaded a backport to its PPA

how does pulseaudio get launched on the client with "SOUND=Y"
13:26
im trying to change its configuration, it seems to ignore /etc/pulse/default.pa in the chroot
13:27
<stgraber>
cinch: it's done in ltsp-init-common (/usr/share/ltsp)
13:27
<cinch>
thanks ill have a look
13:27
oh there we go :D

i must be hallucinating, sound works over the network
13:41
thanks for the tip, was wondering how pulse got started, i needed to delete "-L module-detect" and replace it with "-L module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,1"
13:50
<stgraber>
hmm, that'll work in your case but will work in almost all others :) selection a specific channel of a specific sound card doesn't seem to be a good idea

Hello, can someone help with a 4.2 on Ubuntu 8.10 question? We need 4.2 because we have older Wyse S50 terms. If I set SCREEN_01 to shell, I get a shell. If I set it to startx, I get a flashing gray screen and Ubuntu spinning cursor and many TIME_WAIT connections on the host at 6000. Sorry if this is an RTFM; I've tried and I'm sure it's obvious. Any tips?

16:04
bchapman: if you set to shell and type "startx" at the shell, you should be able to see the error

thank
16:11

well, the folder should be in here: /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/

you can find the default used with: ls -l /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/alternatives/ldm-theme

dmarkey: loopback?
18:31
<dmarkey>
well ltsp local mount
18:32
<vagrantc>
well, gadi and stgraber and myself have put some time into it...
18:32
mostly, i've just struggled with it and had little sucess
18:33
<dmarkey>
oh really, i'll probably look at it in more detail when i'm back at work
18:34
anyway the feature request is virus scanning on the client side
18:34
if a virus is found on the usb key it doesnt become available in /media/root
18:35
it probably isnt important for linux terminal servers but it moreso for windows ones
18:36
it is moreso*
18:36
<vagrantc>
shouldn't be too hard to incorporate a test hook functionality into the existing code, but it will probably require some changes.
18:36
so you could write custom hooks that require it to pass in order for it to mount.
18:37
<dmarkey>
yup
18:37
it will if course prolong the amount of time before the usb key is available
18:38
and increase network traffic(for definitions and stuff)
18:43
suppose we should work on getting device ejection working properly first
