hello
03:27
I am using kiwi-ltsp and trying to get password-less ssh-access to the clients
03:27
http://en.opensuse.org/LTSP/Tips_and_Tricks#Passwordless_ssh_to_the_client
03:27
this one describes it how to do that
03:27
but the file authorized_keys is never uploaded to the client
03:28
in /var/log/boot.kiwi one can see the system atftp'ing the file, but times out several times
03:28
is that intended or what?
03:32
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyone?
03:43
<alkisg>
Mathis: I think you should better try in #kiwi-ltsp
03:43
<Mathis>
I already did
03:52
solved it

cyberorg: ping?
05:12
<cyberorg>
alkisg, hi there :)
05:12
<alkisg>
Hi man :)
05:12
The more I think about it, the more I believe that it should be network manager's responsibility to provide an IP in the link-local subnet, if the interface is connected and no static IP is declared and no dhcp servers are around.
05:12
Seems that Network Manager had this capability (like zeroconf in apple and windows PCs) but was dropped, here's a recent thread of someone asking for its re-inclusion: http://www.nabble.com/DHCP-fall-back-to-link-local--(IPv4)-td23040326.html (maybe we ought to ask, too!)
05:12
So if Network Manager provides the LTSP server with an IP in the 169.254.x.x range, then dnsmasq will work as a normal DHCP server assigning leases and everything should work out of the box.
05:12
I don't think that automatically assigning an IP to the LTSP server (e.g. 192.168.0.254) would be a viable alternative, as it could conflict with other static IPs in that range.
05:13
<cyberorg>
alkisg, we have dhcp+autoip available, see /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg.template
05:14
we disable nm, on ltsp server
05:14
<alkisg>
Wow, then it should work out of the box for you :)
05:14
<cyberorg>
yes it should, it works out of box even now, matttttt seem to have tripped somewhere :)
05:15
<alkisg>
(I meant about ltsp-server-pnp)
05:16
<cyberorg>
yes, i need to dump dhcpd and start using dnsmasq adapting your change, will do it later this week

Alkis: hello
05:38
<alkisg>
asmok: hi man
05:38
<asmok>
there is something i mailed them to ltsp-discuss
05:39
<alkisg>
I'm trying to improve the ltsp-server-pnp algorithm, and I think I got it better now. What's your network configuration?
05:39
Oh, let me see
05:39
<asmok>
very basic, fresh jaunty i386 and everything, nothing weird ;-)
05:40
<alkisg>
Ah asmok you have an older version
05:40
<asmok>
how i update?
05:40
<alkisg>
Let me see if I had uploaded the modifications...
05:42
<asmok>
i got this one now:
05:42
admin-ltsp5@ubuntu-ltsp5:~$ apt-cache showpkg ltsp-server-pnp
05:42
Package: ltsp-server-pnp
05:42
Versions:
05:42
0.1.4
05:44
<alkisg>
asmok: thanks, that's a bug, let me fix that.
05:44
How did you install it? Did you put the PPA to your sources?
05:45
<asmok>
yes i do use your ppa
05:45
<alkisg>
OK, then when I upload the changes you should be able to update automatically
05:45
asmok: If I used the default LTSP range, (.20 to .250, I think) would that be OK for you?
05:46
<asmok>
this testing machine, everything goes here
05:46bobby_C has quit IRC

ijust one thin clietn - HP Mini 2133 ;-)
05:46
<alkisg>
No, I mean in general, for later or if it's stable and you want to install it on your production site
05:47
Like, when you install LTSP with the alternate CD and it defines the range 192.168.0.20 192.168.0.250 to dhcpd.conf, maybe ltsp-server-pnp should also use <server-ip>.20 to <server-ip>.250...
05:48
<asmok>
yes, that sounds very good
05:49
<alkisg>
OK, I'll upload a newer version later on today. asmok, thanks for the testing! :)
05:49
<asmok>
Thank you very much to you Alkis, this dnsmasq is very good replacment for dhcpd
05:50
send me email when you have done (asmo.koskinen at arkki.info)
05:52
<alkisg>
OK, I will.
05:52
<asmok>
bye

hi
08:29
sbalneav: i already try http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Feisty/HOWTO:_PulseAudio and not successfull :(
08:29
anyone can help with using ubuntu 8.04 with skype?
08:35
<pmatulis>
what filesystems are compatible with ltsp local devices (Ubuntu 9.04)?
08:39
<sbalneav>
pmatulis: dos, ext2/3, cdrom file systems, etc.
08:40
try2free: As I said before, I don't think pulse on ubuntu hardy can handle sound sources.
08:42
<try2free>
sbalneav: do you what application to block some web, internet sharing from ltsp client?
08:43
sbalneav: yes, i think you right about sound pulse
08:43strattog has joined #ltsp

<sbalneav>
try2free: If you're looking to control people's internet from an ltsp server, google for "transparent proxy"
08:44
you can set one up with squid
08:45
as for skype, if you move to Jaunty, you can set skype up as a local app, several people have reported success with that.
08:47
<try2free>
sbalneav: i'll try, many thanks
08:49

didnt we already tell you last time to move to a more recent ubuntu last time? ;)

sbalneav: yesterday you said that ltspfsmounter 'initiates the ltspfs mount from the server to the client'. from what i see, ltspfs is the server-side program that does this. does the 'mounter command initiate the mount *on the server* ?
09:49
<sbalneav>
Well, we have to be somewhat pedantic about which *server* we're talking about :)
09:50
the LTSP server, is the *client* for the ltspfs mount.
09:50
the ltspfsd server runs on the ltsp thin client :)
09:50
So
09:50
ltsp client detects plug event
09:51
uses ssh -S control_socket server "ltspfsmounter ..."
09:51
ltspfsmounter calls ltspfs
09:51
ltspfs calls back to the thin client
09:51
mounts the device.
09:57
<pmatulis>
sbalneav: and what mounts the thing on the server (machine)?
09:58
<sbalneav>
*WHICH* server?
09:58
The LTSP server? Or the thin client (ltspfsd)?

<pmatulis>
LTSP server, the device is mounted there
10:01Patina has quit IRC
10:03
<pmatulis>
sbalneav: ^
10:08
<sbalneav>
pmatulis: As I said, the binary ltspfs
10:09
there are two pieces. ltspfs (bit that runs on server) and ltspfsd (which runs on thin client)
10:09
<pmatulis>
sbalneav: ok, so that binary does both, maybe they're really one thing but i'm not seeing it
10:09
<sbalneav>
No, they're two completely separate things
10:10
<pmatulis>
so ltspfs mounts on the server and then on the client?
10:11
ltspfs mounts on the client by contacting ltspfsd
10:12
<sbalneav>
ltspfs runs on the ltsp server, and mounts media on the thin client. ltspfsd runs on the thin client, and talks to ltspfs on the ltsp server
10:12Patina has joined #ltsp
10:12
<sbalneav>
ltspfsd on the thin client actually handles physically mounting and unmounting the media, either disk, memory stick, or cdrom.
10:13
There are two reasons why we created our own network filesysem.
10:15
1) Most network filesystems didn't handle "connection" issues correctly. I.e. If the person, say, just hits the power button rather than logging out, we'd have hung mounts on the server that were difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of.
10:15
2) thin clients have less memory, usually, and we needed something that was very lightweight on the thin client. Running a full samba or NFS file server was overkill.
10:17
Performance issues weren't considered. ltspfs isn't very fast. However, the expectation was that people were simply using it as a method to access things like docs on cdrom, floppy, or memory disk, all of which are slower media.
10:17
Clear now?
10:17
<pmatulis>
better but i still have questions
10:17
:)
10:18
<stgraber>
ogra: http://paste.ubuntu.com/191721/ does it look good ? I'd have preferred to have everything done in the loop but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to guess the name of the usplash package as it's different between ubuntu and the other derivatives :(

sbalneav: do you still recommend using sabayon for configuring the desktop that all users will see?
11:10
<sbalneav>
bieb: sabayon's currently broken.
11:10
<bieb>
ahhh
11:10
<sbalneav>
Once I get it fixed, yes I do.
11:10
<bieb>
is there a good way to configure the primary desktop image in the mean time?
11:11
I should say.. what is the best way
11:12
<vagrantc>
there is no "best" way
11:13
<sbalneav>
Probably handling things with mandatory gconf keys, etc, per the gnome configuration guide would be the preferred way to go, at the moment.
11:14
<bieb>
ok
11:18
<alkisg>
bieb: (1) set the background you want (2) run gconf-editor and navigate to /desktop/gnome/background (3) right click on the picture_filename key and select to set it as mandatory or as a default key
11:19
<bieb>
alkisg: thanks
11:19
<alkisg>
yw
11:20
sbalneav: I saw that system-tools-backends has an IfacesConfig module, do you think I could use that to detect what network interfaces are on the system and how they were brought up (dhcp, static ip...)? I can't find much info on the net...
11:22
<sbalneav>
alkisg: Possibly. However, from what I understand, s-t-b's is "dead upstream", and people are looking for a way to get rid of it.
11:22
<alkisg>
Ooops. Not the way to go, then. Thanks a lot! :)
11:22
<sbalneav>
I suspect NetworkMangler would be the new "proper" way to do that.
11:22
<alkisg>
OK, I'll try to find how to talk to it. dbus, probably...
11:23
<sbalneav>
I bumped into something a little while back that may help:
11:23
http://vidner.net/martin/software/cnetworkmanager
11:23
A command line interface to network manager.
11:24
I actually found a bug in it, so I'd try grabbing the git source, and I know the author fixed it in there.
11:24
<alkisg>
Woot! Thanks, sbalneav!
11:26
<sbalneav>
You'd think, after 15+ years of Linux and 40+ years of Unix, there'd be a "standard" api to get info on interfaces
11:30
<alkisg>
Yeah, and I was complaining about the windows api changing all the time :P :D I wonder if it's proper to make ltsp-server-pnp depend on network manager though, maybe I should only use it if it's available.

I'm using ubuntu to setup LTSP. My client machines boots fine, changes to graphic mode and displays the Ubuntu load screen. Then the monitor goes blank. Trying to change to another screen (with Ctrl-Alt-Fx) doesn't work. Seems like the client is dead. I edited the lts.conf file changing the xserver to ati, vesa and auto, but none work. Any tipos on how can I debug this?
11:38
<sbalneav>
lal00: I'd start by removing "quiet splash" from /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
11:39
that will allow you to see kernel messages, and boot messages.
11:39
<lal00>
sbalneav: ahh great
11:43
that helped, i can see everything is fine up until the x server(?) is about to start
11:57Lns has joined #ltsp
12:00
<lal00>
could it be that there isn't a suitable driver for the client?
12:05
<alkisg>
lal00: try with XSERVER=vesa in lts.conf
12:05
<lal00>
alkisg: I already did :-/
12:06
<alkisg>
So what are the contents of /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/<arch>/lts.conf now?
12:08
<lal00>
[192.168.1.20]
12:08
XSERVER=vesa
12:08
LDM_DIRECTX=True
12:08
SERVER=192.168.1.100
12:09
<alkisg>
That's the IP that the client gets? Is that fixed in dhcpd.conf?
12:09
<lal00>
its not fixed, but it always gets the same
12:10
I can tell that it works because if I add SCREEN_O7=shell it works
12:10
<Lns>
lal00: have you tried using the MAC addy instead?
12:11
<alkisg>
Hey Lns! lal00, what does xorg.log tell you?
12:11
<lal00>
yes, I have used the mac address, it correctly reads the configuration as with the ip
12:11
xorg.log in the server? I can't access the client
12:12
<alkisg>
lal00: try with SCREEN_02=shell SCREEN_07=ldm to access the client logs
12:12
<Lns>
hey alkisg =)\
12:15
<lal00>
alkisg: as soon as ldm kicks in, the client becomes unresponsive
12:15
I can't switcht to the shell
12:15
<Lns>
lal00: what do you see in regards to ldm? gfx, no gfx,... ?
12:16
<lal00>
no gfx, basically the monitor turns off because it receives "No Signal"
12:16
<Lns>
ah
12:17
yeah you wanna look at the logs :)
12:17
<lal00>
haha but I can't :P
12:17
<Lns>
lal00: how many clients on your net?
12:17
<lal00>
just one, but I could add another one if needed
12:17
<Lns>
lal00: nah that's fine, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/TCSyslogToLTSPServer
12:18
that might get you logs you need sent to the server side
12:18
(sorry don't know if your'e using ubuntu or not)
12:18
(but should be similar steps to get it going)
12:19

I can see the syslog now on the server; if only I could see the X server log

<Lns>
heh..you're the best one to ask about that ;p
12:36
mr. "MY computer battery lasts 10 days!" =p
12:37
lal00: so the Xserver log from the client doesn't get pushed to the server??

12:37chupacabra has joined #ltsp
12:38
<lal00>
Lns: I don't see it. If by that you mean that Xserver.0.log will show whatever is happening in the client, then it's not.
12:39
<Lns>
lal00: hrm. i'd think all the logs would get sent, but maybe xserver logs don't use syslog facilities..
12:45
<stgraber>
ogra: why ?
12:46
<ogra>
stgraber, because you call the update-alternatives to point to ubuntu at the end of the code
12:46
<stgraber>
ogra: did you see the "return" ?
12:46
<ogra>
so the alternative will pont there
12:46
does that work without ltsp-build-client erroring out ?
12:46
did you test ?
12:48
<stgraber>
the return should work, I was actually going to test it now
12:48
<ogra>
good
12:48
if that works i'm fine
12:48
though it indeed leaves you with the last metapackage catched by default if people have multiple installed
12:49
but that should be fine for now
12:49
did you add the unionfs-fuse stuff to a distro patch so we have something to test with A2 ?
12:49
it will likely go away with the .31 kernel anyway so a patch should be fine
12:49
<stgraber>
not yet, I have bookmarked your patch, will make it so it works for both karmic and jaunty and push it to trunk
12:50
ok, so in the package then :)
12:50
<ogra>
yeah, dont push it upstream
12:50
its not worth it ... with the .31 kernel mount --union should just work
12:51* ogra needs to take care of the call now ...

pastes forthcoming. Quick info on the problem: my third party dhcp server is giving my tc an ip and managing to tell it about the next-server to get the kernel/initrd from, that boots, but when the kernel tries to dhcp/configure the network again later in the boot process i see: found server type in kernel cmdline, found server in cmdline, checking servername: my.server, server: my.server not found, as if it can't resolve it. when I replace the fqdn valu
14:41
it doesn't even get that far, as if it doesn't know what to do with an ip
14:41
tries tftp.domain or something
14:42
<cliebow>
but you are sure the card is initialized by the kernel?
14:42
<matttttt>
yes, because when i use my ltsp server as the dhcp server this all works flawlessly
14:42
<cliebow>
right

cliebow: you authenticating against AD also?
14:46
<matttttt>
so, after the network card is initialized and tries to dhcp/tftp again, is the tftp server to use provided by next-server/dhcp or the parameters passed to the kernel via pxelinux/default?
14:46
<cliebow>
no..ldap

matttttt: do you actually have the "=10.16.200.55 kiwiservertype=tftp " in a seperate line, as it shows on pastebot?
14:51
<matttttt>
nah, that's just wrapping from my small putty session
14:51
it's one line
14:51
<cliebow>
bieb: al lthat is required is a little elbow practice begore you come

<matttttt>
alk, ok. break=init seems useful.
14:54
can someone answer (seems not suse specific) how ltsp knows which tftp server to use after the kernel boots? I.e, is it getting it as a kernel parameter or looking for next-server= from dhcp again?
14:54
how do other distros do it?
14:55
seems like if it works when booting initially (with my thin client's bios based dhcp client to get the kernel/initrd), the second one should work too.
14:57

If I can do anything to help make it happen, I'll have lots of time in the summer, I'll probably be able to do whatever it takes (just don't know what is that)

it would work in all cases, its just ugly

dont put it into jaunty

keep the whole thing as a karmic-only-one-shot-distro patch

only for A2

hopefully the .31 kernel will have proper unionfs support
