<chrisjrob>
i need some inspiration! i have some Wyse 9235LE thin clients, which are XPe based. i have used these on our existing etch server and they pxe boot reliably. i am now trying to use them on our new lenny server and pxe is failing with "error pxe-e51 no dhcp or proxy dhcp offers were received". it then goes onto boot XPe fine and duly picks up its dhcp assigned ip.
03:30
i feel like i have tried every dhcpd.conf setting to try and get them to work, but without joy, and any thoughts would be appreciated!
03:32
syslog does not show any dhcp request until it has booted XPe.
03:38
other clients are pxe booting fine, so dhcp and pxe are working.
03:39
so the obvious is that for some reason dhcpd is not configured to service the pxe request of this particular client, but i have set it up the same as every other client.
03:39
<sep>
it have link when it tries to pxeboot ?
03:40
and it uses the same interface and configured mac ?
03:40
<chrisjrob>
well when it begins the pxe dhcp if the cable is not connected it fails immediately without reporting its mac address,
03:41
if the cable is connected it initially reports its mac address, and it is that mac address that i have entered into dhcpd.conf
03:41
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: try with gpxe: do `dhcp net0` and see what dhcp info actually reaches the clients
03:41
(best logging tool, client side...)
03:42* chrisjrob googles gpxe
03:42
<alkisg>
(formerly etherboot - can be booted from cd / floppy / hd)
03:42
<ogra>
chrisjrob, i heard that the newer syslinux has probs with some clients that do not respect the standard to 100%
03:42
<chrisjrob>
ah yes the old etherboot site. hmm, have to get that onto a usb stick
03:43
<ogra>
you might need to use the old pxelinux stuff from etch for them
03:43
<alkisg>
ogra, "no offers received" is before pxelinux is loaded, right?
03:44
(goodday all btw)
03:44
<chrisjrob>
alkisg: yes
03:44
<ogra>
yeah, thats the client
03:44
<chrisjrob>
ogra: some of my newer pcs have also struggled, leading me to use gpxe instead
03:45
so i suspect you have hit the nail on the head
03:45
what do i need to copy across from my etch server do you think, just the elements from /var/lib/tftpboot?
03:46
<alkisg>
Ehm, pxelinux is used *after* the client gets a dhcp lease. Isn't the problem before this?
03:46
I.e. client not getting a dhcp lease at all?
03:46
<chrisjrob>
yes alkisg, you're right.
03:47
unless it is getting the lease, but not logging it.
03:47
<alkisg>
So all you can fix at this point is dhcpd.conf (or cabling/switches etc)
03:48
<chrisjrob>
cabling is fine, i am in my office, and i have had countless clients working fine, and indeed this one works in XPe. i am plugged into the same switch as the server.
03:49* chrisjrob looks at his dhcpd.conf for the hundredth time
03:49
<alkisg>
OK, then dhcpd.conf and dhcp3-server...
03:49
E.g. maybe this client doesn't receive a boot filename
03:50
chrisjrob: upload your dhcpd.conf to pastebin if you want so that we can have a look...
03:50
<chrisjrob>
that's kind alkisg, I will, maybe i'm missing something obvious!
03:52
<ogra>
do you see the dhcp request in the logs if you boot the client that doesnt work ?
03:54
<ltsppbot>
"chrisjrob" pasted "dhcpd.conf - the offender is host ws060" (108 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/320
03:55
<chrisjrob>
i have tried commenting out all the if/elsif/else statement to just leave filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
03:56
i've even put that under the host declaration.
03:56
<alkisg>
Ah, another possibility of something going wrong is if you have a router somewhere that also offers dhcp leases
03:57
<chrisjrob>
don't believe so, but i'll try stopping dhcpd and rebooting the client, see if it gets an address from somewhere else.
04:04
no, it hasn't obtained an ip address, so i don't believe there is another dhcp server on the network.
04:08
<alkisg>
Try with gpxe to see what options actually reach the client
04:09
Then compare that with what you get if you connect it to the previous etch server.
04:11
<chrisjrob>
that's going to be tricky, as it doesn't have an optical drive, nor floppy, nor any obvious way of getting into the bios
04:11
<alkisg>
Doesn't it have an hd?
04:11
Put it in boot.ini...
04:12
(I assume Windows XPe are similar to XP?)
04:12
<chrisjrob>
it has a flash drive i suppose, yes XPe is very similar to XP afaik.
04:13
<alkisg>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/grubgpxe#Boot%20from%20a%20Windows%20NT/2000/XP/2003%20partition
04:13
See there for how to put it in boot.ini ^^^
04:15
<chrisjrob>
thanks alkisg.
04:25
<alkisg>
(you may even use this boot.ini/grub4dos/gpxe combination as a permanent solution for this particular pc ;))
04:38try2free has joined #ltsp
04:44
<chrisjrob>
hmm, there isn't a C:\boot.ini file :(
04:45
<alkisg>
Uh, unless it's hidden, I don't know what XPe uses
04:46try2free has left #ltsp
04:53
<chrisjrob>
not only was it hidden, but it was also "protected", so even showing hidden files failed to show it.
05:08
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: that's what this line was for, in the tutorial link I gave you above: attrib -r -s -h C:\boot.ini
05:08
It unhides/unprotect the file...
05:12
<chrisjrob>
alkisg: attrib isn't available in XPe, but it doesn't seem to be stopping me so far
05:13
should the GRUB4DOS line go under the [boot loader] section, or at the end as stated which is in the [operating systems] section?
05:14
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: could you upload your boot.ini contents to pastebin, because it's been a long time since I used XP?
05:15
Usually it's at the end of the file
05:16
chrisjrob: ok, I saw an example boot.ini at google, it's at the end of file, at the [operating systems] stanza
05:17
<ltsppbot>
"chrisjrob" pasted "Win XPe boot.ini" (5 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/321
05:18
"alkisg" pasted "chrisjrob new boot.ini" (7 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/322
05:18
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: try this one ^^^ because I'm not sure if your system partition is C: or D:...
05:19
Ah, and set timeout=10
05:19
Not 0
05:19
<chrisjrob>
thanks alkisg, it's on C and rebooting as we speak.
05:19
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: It's not necessarily on C:
05:20
The boot manager may see different drive letters than windows
05:20
Windows keeps the drive letter mapping in the registry, so it may use different values...
05:21
(I'm worried about "2" in default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS)
05:21
(but if it's also active then you should have a problem...)
05:22
<chrisjrob>
well it didn't work, but I was already rebooting when you pasted the new boot.ini - so i'll make the changes you suggested,
05:24
there seems to only be a C: and a Z: the latter being the ramdrive for working files (lost on reboot) doubt there's anything bootable on that.
05:25
i'll increase the timeout and reboot
05:25
<alkisg>
Don't count on windows drive letters, these are assigned later on at the boot process
05:25
With timeout=0 it'll always boot windows - never grub4dos
05:25runout has joined #ltsp
05:27
<chrisjrob>
any reason why i can't refer to it as: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\grldr ?
05:27
<alkisg>
Try it, I don't remember if arc paths are supported
05:28
<chrisjrob>
well that's how they're referring to the Windows directory...
05:28
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
05:28
<alkisg>
Yes but that's for a different boot method
05:28
<chrisjrob>
Ah.
05:30
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: do you see the entry in the boot manager, and it fails to load, or you don't see it at all?
05:39
<chrisjrob>
alkisg: sorry - every reboot takes a good 5 mins or more. yes i did see the entry in the boot manager, but it failed to boot it, with an error which make it clear that the disk was wrong.
05:39ogra_ has quit IRC
05:39
<chrisjrob>
so i'm now adding the D:\grldr line.
05:42
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: you may try them all at once, i.e. put an entry for C:, one for D:, and one for the arc path all at the same time
05:43
<chrisjrob>
alkisg: too late ;). D fails with missing or corrupt system32\hal.dll
05:44
<alkisg>
Hmmm?
05:44
And what was the error message for C:\grldr?
05:46
<chrisjrob>
can't remember, but it seemed obvious at the time that it was the wrong drive - and i criticise my users for not writing down error messages.
05:46
<alkisg>
(just wondering if it was an ntldr message or a grldr message...)
05:46
<chrisjrob>
i'll let you know in 2 mins
05:46
<alkisg>
So far it looks like grldr was never loaded.
05:47
<chrisjrob>
Error for C: Try (fd0): invalid or null. Error: Cannot find grldr in all drives. Press Ctrl+alt+del to restart.
05:52
Error for D: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll. Please re-install a copy of the above file.
06:00
<alkisg>
chrisjrob: ok, then grldr tries to load but cannot locate itself because of weird drive settings
06:01
Sorry, can't help, I've never seen XPe.
06:01
<ltsppbot>
"chrisjob" pasted "alkisg" (8 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/323
06:01
<alkisg>
If it supports booting from usb you may give it a shot from there
06:02
C:\grldr="GRUB4DOS boot loader (C)" was the correct one, but grldr couldn't take it from there
06:08
<chrisjrob>
alkisg: well thanks anyway for all your time, back to trying to get it to pxe boot. it won't usb boot - tried that first.

runout: think you'll have to configure the power manager
08:05
defaults for me are, turn of screen in 40 mins, turn on screensaver in 10, default is blanking for me
08:06
so you might wanna change the default screensaver :)
08:07treyh has joined #ltsp

<runout>
i don't use any screensaver
08:08
the only app running is opera. it's a real kiosk only for browsing
08:09
<Drakonen>
runout: is it running gnome?
08:10
more info pls what you did :)
08:10
<runout>
gdm,
08:10
in the .xsession script i start
08:10
opera in kiosk mode
08:10
and metacity
08:11
<Drakonen>
ok, so configure your gnome screensaver properly :)
08:11elisboa has joined #ltsp

<runout>
thats not installed
08:13
<Drakonen>
how did you install ubuntu / ltsp?
08:13
<runout>
just as usual, but i uninstalled the screensaver by hand
08:14
<Drakonen>
ok
08:14
then i dont know
08:14
<runout>
also i couldn't find good info about configuring it
08:18
i think the problem is not the screensaver. maybe it's X. lokks like ltsp5 is ignoring the X_DPMS option in the lts.conf

I'm currently writing french tutorials for ltsp and ltsp-cluster (once i'll get ltsp-cluster working ) Its a schoolwork
08:39
I think it will be usefull tu concentrate in one document all the help i got :)
08:40* ogra wonders if the UbuntuLTSP wiki doesnt already have something on the cluster stuff

X-TaZ, why don't you just ask what you want to know? may be stgraber will see that and reply whenever he is online
08:43
<X-TaZ>
I already spoken to him yesterday. He told me to use a file that is no more on the launchpad website
08:43
it is control-center.config
08:44

not in ltsp-cluster bzr tree?

Maybe you could help me on another problem I have. Its in the OpenVZ tutorial for ltsp-cluster. I made this ( on 5 servers ). I can't find what to do in the file when its asked to do : Set the IP address in /etc/ltsp/lbaconfig.xml ("echo 192.168.0.5" instead of using hostname to get it)
08:51
ty for the file :)
08:51
<cyberorg>
my webserver does not like .config http://prime.cyberorg.co.in/control-center.config.txt
08:52
<X-TaZ>
hehe just saw it
08:53
<treyh>
this rpm claims to have a copy of it
08:53
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/6/idpl/12032431
08:53
<X-TaZ>
In the lbaconfig.xml i can't find witch "hostname" occurency i have to modify by 192.168.0.5 :x
08:53
<cyberorg>
treyh, that is what we got on suse, haven't updated them for a while
08:56
X-TaZ, there is only one
08:58
<X-TaZ>
k so i replace <constant name="HOSTNAME"> with <constant name="192.168.0.5"> ? What does he mean with "echo ?
08:59
<cyberorg>
i guess it would be <command>echo 192.168...
09:00
may be you could leave HOSTNAME alone and add 192 line, wild guess
09:00
<treyh>
or maybe he just means to use the ip instead of hostname
09:01
<cyberorg>
add new <constant name ="192... section
09:01
treyh, yup, or just replace <command>hostname</command> with <command>echo yourIP</command>
09:02
<treyh>
yea, thats kinda like me saying yesterday I'm trying to convert my wife to ubuntu
09:02
and Gadi said, convert her to a distribution
09:02
could mean more than one thing

she doesn't like ubuntu, because "it's brown" lol

i am sure she likes green :)
09:15
<treyh>
lol
09:15
i gave up, she's stuck on vista right now
09:16
but when problems come up, I pretend to not know how to fix them because it's vista and no one is using it anymore lol

i've set up sound on my debian lenny ltsp5 server, but the old 4.2 method of adjusting volume by lts.conf doesn't seem to be working, before i spend to long troubleshooting this, i wonder whether anyone could confirm how you would normally set volume in ltsp 5? is it still via lts.conf VOLUME=90 etc?
11:31
<vagrantc>
it is, though it might not be working in lenny. i haven't tested that version in a while.
11:31
<chrisjrob>
thanks vagrantc, i'll investigate, i think i have a script to fix if not.
11:32
<vagrantc>
i hate to say it, with lenny released just 2 months ago, but there's ltsp backports available for lenny :)
11:33
<chrisjrob>
lol, excellent - i'll take a look.
11:33
<vagrantc>
chrisjrob: check out http://wiki.debian.org/LTSP/Howto for info
11:34
<chrisjrob>
vagrantc: is it stable enough for production use would you say?
11:34
<NeonLicht>
I'm running it for a few weeks already and it works wonderfully
11:35
<chrisjrob>
yay, good news indeed. i suppose i ought to know where the change log is...?
11:35
<vagrantc>
chrisjrob: pretty stable, though i update the packages fairly regularly. so the versions change a fair bit, and that may introduce more frequent changes.

well better yet, what is it doing
12:51
booting to the shell everytime?
12:51
<_UsUrPeR_>
I'm using the default as a control in this test to make sure it's booting to the MAC address. My client, with that mac address, is booting to shell
12:51
when it should be booting to ldm
12:51
<treyh>
take out screen_02 = shell
12:52spectra has quit IRC

on the mac specific entry
12:52
then the only option will be ldm
12:52
I think it goes in order on the screens, as to what it chooses first
12:52
I think, but I may be wrong
12:52
<_UsUrPeR_>
in openSUSE, you would be correct

My Jaunty install, after install ltspfs, works with cdroms and usb sticks
13:14
<_UsUrPeR_>
treyh: did you originally install ltsp with the alternate CD, or did you install normal ubuntu and apt-get afterwards?
13:15
<treyh>
apt-get afterwards
13:15
<_UsUrPeR_>
ok
13:16
<treyh>
and i'm putting together a guide that I'm going to put on my site
13:16
<_UsUrPeR_>
speaking of which: where do I put in a bug for the alternate CDs?
13:16
<treyh>
your cdrom/usb stick redirection not working?
13:16
<_UsUrPeR_>
negative.
13:17
if you had used the alternate install, ltspfs would have been installed already
13:17
<treyh>
oh so thats not your problem?
13:22
<_UsUrPeR_>
it has to do with the dhcpd.conf on the alternate install CD
13:22
it's not congruent with the automatically assigned IP address when the system is set up
13:25
<treyh>
fun
13:25
didn't intrepid have the same problem?

Hello
13:59
I have a newly set up ltsp on Ubuntu 9.04. I have booted up a client on a machine for the first time and it is at the console login prompt. Every so often it appears to try to start a graphical login but fails (screen goes blank but then returns to the console). Also, I cannot log in. How can I find what the problem is?
14:00
I am fairly new to this but I have managed to get a client running on a different machine as well as a virtual machine.
14:01
<treyh>
video driver issue
14:01
what kind of video card?
14:01
<alkisg>
treyh: rdesktop -u ''
14:01
<treyh>
tried that
14:02
<alkisg>
Try also with a space, rdesktop -u ' '
14:02
Not sure which of the two did the trick, it's been a while...
14:02
<jhaig|home>
I'm not sure what video card it is. As I cannot log in I will probably need to reboot to find what it is. Hold on.
14:02
<treyh>
when I did -u '' it put '' as the username lol
14:02
<alkisg>
Maybe you double quoted it in lts.conf?
14:03
<treyh>
let me check lts.conf
14:03
yea thats what it was
14:03
doubled quoted it
14:03
cahnged it to RDP_OPTIONS = -u "" -a 16 -r sound:local:alsa -r disk:drives=/media/root
14:03
before it was
14:04
<jhaig|home>
The video card is almost certainly ancient, though.
14:04
<treyh>
RDP_OPTIONS = "-u '' -a 16 -r sound:local:alsa -r disk:drives=/media/root"
14:05
what did the pc have on it before
14:05
windows 2000, xp?
14:10
another thing you could do jhaig is try another client
14:10
that has different hardware
14:11
<alkisg>
jhaig|home: you could also try putting XSERVER=vesa in lts.conf to get you started
14:11
<jhaig|home>
It works on another client (as it happens, one that I don't want to use as a client).
14:11

14:14
XSERVER=vesa
14:14
<jhaig|home>
OK, done that and rebooting (the client)

14:15
<alkisg>
Yes, mac, ip, dns name etc

It looks like it has worked, and it has let me log in. Thanks.

Yes... but... I don't know why the S3 driver would do this. You'll have to see the local xorg logs... if you want to do this now, try removing XSERVER=vesa from lts.conf and adding SCREEN_02=shell to get a real terminal.

OK, it has booted up with a shell on the second console.

The xorg.conf should be generated in /root, and the logs should be in /var/log/Xorg.*.log

I've done that, and then "X -configure /xorg.conf.new" and the screen went blank. Going back to the console, it seems to be OK.

XSERVER=s3virge in lts.conf works, so for some reason it appears that the problem is that it is not probing it properly.

15:53
<wkrasko_>
I've also tried with 192.168.1.168 in resolv.conf
15:54
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: "route -n" from the thin client (if it's longer than two lines, please use the pastebot)
15:54
<wkrasko_>
Yes, .1.3 is eth0 going out to firewall->internet, and eth1 is 0.1 going to switch and then to thin clients. i installed from the 9.04 alternative cd.
15:54

wrasko_: could you post your /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf?
15:59
on the server
16:00
<ltsppbot>
"wkrasko" pasted "/etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf" (16 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/327

wkrasko_: can you ping 192.168.1.168 from the thin client?
16:01
<ltsppbot>
"wkrasko" pasted "/var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf" (7 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/328
16:02
<wkrasko_>
Yep, I can ping 192.168.1.168 as well.
16:03
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: from the xterm run via localapps?
16:04
<wkrasko_>
Yes
16:05
<alkisg>
wkrasko_, try: dig @192.168.0.1 www.google.com
16:05
(that's your dns server, isn't it?)
16:05
(you may have to install dig)
16:05
(temporarily, in the local xterm)
16:05
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: was that just a typo that you pasted /var/lib/tftpboot... but the content looks like /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf ... ?
16:06* vagrantc uses bind9-host and the host command
16:06
<wkrasko_>
No, that was the last thing I tried was 192.168.0.1. Our dns servers are 66.7.224.17 & 15 stored in the firewall/router (192.168.1.168). I've tried using 192.168.1.168 as the dns server as well though. Should I try using one of the actual dns servers?
16:06
<alkisg>
Yes
16:07
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: does the firewall use the 192.168.0.* addresses directly?
16:07
wkrasko_: also try pinging one of those DNS servers...
16:07
<wkrasko_>
No, firewall/router is 192.168.1.168, ltsp server is 192.168.1.3, then the second nic/thin clients are 192.168.0.x
16:08
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: just making sure the firewall/router isn't NATted with the same ip addresses on the other end... is it a DSL or cable modem?
16:08spectra has quit IRC

<wkrasko_>
T1's. The firewall goes into an Adtran Netvanta 4305 from our ISP that has 2 T1's going into it.
16:10
I get no reply when I ping the actual dns (66.7.224.17) from thin client->ltsp-localapps xterm
16:11
<vagrantc>
wkrasko_: do you have any rules on the firewall that would block traffic from unknown ip ranges?
16:11
though if it's NATted... that shouldn't matter.
16:12
<alkisg>
Maybe it doesn't reply to pings at all
16:12
<vagrantc>
that's what i was just guessing...
16:12
<alkisg>
(i.e. wkrasko_ can you ping your dns servers from your ltsp-server?)
16:13
<wkrasko_>
Not sure, we had someone else set up the firewall and as far as I know it's pretty much the defaults for a Cisco ASA. I saw something about having to put a static route in your firewall, but the guy who wrote the NAT how to said you shouldn't need that with NAT just as you say.
16:13
Ok, no. I get no reply when I ping the dns servers from the ltsp server either.
16:14
<vagrantc>
some servers refuse pings to prevent DoS attacks...
16:14
wkrasko_: can you ping 209.85.171.100 from the server and from the thin client?
16:14
<alkisg>
Try using dig/host from a client to see if you can reach the dns server.
16:14
<wkrasko_>
Actually, it looks like my firewall must be blocking pings. I can't get a reply from any address even from the server where I have a connection

<wkrasko_>
Success! I must have been following the guides to closely as they all set DNS_SERVER in lts.conf to the router's ip. I just set it to 66.7.224.17 as guys mentioned, reboote the thin client, and it works!
16:24
Thanks so much everyone, now I can sleep. ;)

wkrasko_: glad to hear it
16:31
wkrasko_: though it might be better to set it to you're firewall, if it's got a DNS proxy running on it, just in case your ISPs DNS changes.
16:32
wkrasko_: or install dnsmasq on your ltsp server and point to it

When running an LTSP setup, does most of the processing occur on the server, or is it possible to move some of that execution overhead to the clients?
21:21
No?
21:26
<epsas>
it is almost all on the server
21:26
there has been talk of ltsp mosix / etc...
21:26
but i don't know about how that is moving
21:41shogunx has quit IRC

<zlirp>
Yeah, I'm reading some "fat-client" tutorials here that look promising.
21:42
<pmatulis>
zlirp: you can set up applications to run on the client. i've done it recently with Ubuntu
21:43
<zlirp>
Do you have to mess around per-client?
21:43
<pmatulis>
zlirp: no, you can set a global option
21:43
<zlirp>
The fat client tutorials are exactly what I'm talking about as I'd like to be able to run high overhead apps (WINE) on the clients.
21:44
<pmatulis>
zlirp: geez, you must have pretty powerful clients to run wine
21:44
<zlirp>
?
21:44
I'm not sure I understand what you mean?
21:44
They're all P4 PCs.
21:44
<pmatulis>
zlirp: there you go
21:44
<zlirp>
The problem is that I want to be able to manage them centrally.
21:45
Or be able to replace them when they fail with little to no effort (reconfigure a MAC ID)
21:45
<pmatulis>
zlirp: what OS are you running?
21:45
<zlirp>
all machines will run ubuntu
21:46twinprism has joined #ltsp

<pmatulis>
zlirp: k, with 9.04 you can set it up easily
21:46
zlirp: i just did it with firefox
21:46
<zlirp>
So is there a process per-application?
21:47
sorry -
21:47
that wording is a bit ambiguous
21:47
<pmatulis>
zlirp: well you need to install it :)
21:47
<zlirp>
Well, yeah :D
21:47
But I really don't want to have to do a song and dance AFTER installing each app.
21:47
I'd like to get it configured per-image, and then laugh my way home.
21:47
which the current tutorial seems to imply
21:47
http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LocalApps
21:48
<pmatulis>
zlirp: you install the app to the chroot. with latest Ubuntu you need to rebuild the image
21:48
zlirp: so install all your apps in one go
21:48
<zlirp>
What does rebuilding the image do? (curious)
21:49
So if I install WINE and run an OpenGL app, provided my thin client has a good 3D card, it'll run nicely?
21:49
"thin"
21:49
;)
21:49
<pmatulis>
zlirp: you build the image that the clients mount over the network
21:50
zlirp: what release of Ubuntu?
21:50
<zlirp>
Latest.
21:50
<pmatulis>
zlirp: good
21:50
zlirp: you'll be fine
21:50
<zlirp>
So clients will just basically be using the server for file-access.
21:50shogunx has joined #ltsp

<zlirp>
centralized OS hosting essentially.
21:50
<pmatulis>
zlirp: not sure about your app in particular but in principle it works
21:50
<zlirp>
Well, I'm willing to try :)
21:51
<pmatulis>
zlirp: go for it!
21:51
<zlirp>
What I want is all machines to have the same applications available. But of course, each machine may differ in hardware.
21:51
I'll be back on tomorrow probably once I'm actually at it.
21:51
Just burning a Jaunty server CD tonight.
21:51
<pmatulis>
zlirp: nice, ping me to let me know if it works for you
21:51
<zlirp>
Yeah, for sure. I'm sure I'll be mucking around.
21:52
<pmatulis>
zlirp: one other thing
21:52
<zlirp>
?
21:53
<pmatulis>
zlirp: if the local app needs to resolve internet names (needs a resolver) there is a bug. a workaround exists however
21:53
zlirp: it's documented on the UbuntuLTSP wiki
21:53
<zlirp>
ah good
21:53
I'm sure I'll catch it ;)
