Guys I try really hard not to just come here when I have a problem but... I have a big one...
00:24
3 of my thin clients' screens are both inverted and reversed
00:24
I can't figure out why
00:24
has anyone seen this before?
00:25
wait, not reversed... They are flipped horizontally, bottom of back ground is at top, and text is reading not only upside down, but is also inverted so applications reads as snoitacilppA

erieslabnx, try putting screen resolution for those clients in lts.conf
00:28
<erieslabnx>
ok
00:28
what format would that go in as for 1024 x 768?
00:28
do you know off hand?
00:30
lol wait bigger question... where is lts.conf?
00:31
<cyberorg>
!docs

cyberorg: "docs" is For the most current documentation, see http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream

erieslabnx, ^^ :)
00:31
<erieslabnx>
thank you :)
00:36
so in theory the screens could be flipped like this because the user accounts were initially setup and configured using my brand new HP monitor, and when they were plugged into these ancient bricks, this is the result?
00:37
or could it be because the monitor they are currently plugged into is not capable of the color/resolution settings as the monitor they were plugged into 3 hours ago?
00:47
hmmm I can not find my lts.conf file, perhaps that is the problem?
00:48
found it ;)

Hello community! I'm playing with LTSP (Ubuntu standalone ltsp server) few days and I've decided to install the server into VirtualBox with bridged networking (physical eth0 is bridged to virtual eth0)...The question is - will I be able to boot ltsp physical clients? Thanks!
09:37MichalPenka1 has joined #ltsp
09:37MichalPenka has quit IRC
09:37
<MichalPenka1>
to be more precise...my virtual eth0 has 192.168.0.1/24, my physical eth0 gets 192.168.0.20/24 from virtualized ltsp server
09:39
I'm not expert in networking
09:39
but I thought bridged network should make the IPs the same

anyone around to answer fl_teacher installation on k12linux? -- I have 64bit OS installed hosting 32 bit clients. Am I required to install it in chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 or is the install done on the x86_64 bit side ?

"vagrantc" pasted "very minor tweak to getltscfg-cluster" (13 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/381
16:48
<vagrantc>
stgraber: does that look ok to you? ^^
16:49
i'm not sure if it should be egrep '/rofs.*nbd' or egrep 'nbd.*/rofs'

vagrantc: got my mail ?
18:21
<vagrantc>
yeah
18:21
stgraber: worth committing?
18:21
<stgraber>
sure
18:22
<vagrantc>
i also made another commit changing the way the ntpdate/hwclock stuff is called
18:23
though it assumes the thin-client hardware clock will be utc, which is maybe flawed.
18:43pmatulis_ has joined #ltsp
18:45
<stgraber>
vagrantc: what's the different in behavior vs not having --utc ?
18:46
<vagrantc>
stgraber: using --noadjfile requires using --utc or --local, as least according to the manpage.
18:47pmatulis has quit IRC
18:47
<vagrantc>
was needed to not have /etc/adjtime tweaked, which doesn't really make sense on a thin client which gets a different /etc/adjtime every boot.
18:47pmatulis has joined #ltsp
18:47
<vagrantc>
but i guess it stores the LOCALTIME vs. UTC in there, too ... guess we could parse it to find the appropriate behavior...
18:52
<stgraber>
well, I don't think we copy it or generate it with ltsp-build-client so whatever is its default should be fine

<ahven>
hello, got a problem that google doesn't answer quite fully - got a very fresh install of LTSP on my debian and both virtualbox and my IBM T23 won't recognize my keyboard and mouse
20:11
the login screen comes up and no input possiblity
20:57
<pmatulis>
how does the thin client know where to download the ltsp image?
20:59
<ahven>
pmatulis, dhcpd tells it
20:59
<pmatulis>
ahven: how?
20:59
<ahven>
covered in the most basic setup manuals
20:59
what distro?
21:00
<pmatulis>
ubuntu
21:02
<ahven>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP
21:02
under debian that file is located in /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf which is included from the main dhcpd configuration
21:04
<pmatulis>
ahven: i know all that
21:04
<ahven>
so...what seems to be the problem then? :)
21:05
<pmatulis>
in dhcpd.conf there is the root-path parameter. but that does not give the image location, it gives the path of the root filesystem from which the image is built
21:05
my image is at /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img
21:07
root-path shows /opt/ltsp/i386
21:07
ahven: do you understand my question?
21:08
<ahven>
yes
21:08
<pmatulis>
ok
21:08
i think that pxelinux.0 must have the intelligence to find the image location from the root-path value
21:13
<vagrantc>
it's handled in initramfs that's downloaded via pxelinux
21:13
oh, no ... it actually is passed on the pxelinux.cfg/default commandline
21:13
nbdserver/nbdport and all that
21:14
<pmatulis>
vagrantc: thanks, will check
21:16
vagrantc: is it possible to have multiple images? like direct image1 for client1 and image2 for client2?
21:17
from the above, that means "can we have different pxelinux configs for different clients
21:17
<vagrantc>
pmatulis: definitely possible.
21:17
not trivial.
21:17
well, sort of trivial.
21:18
<pmatulis>
what's the crux of it?
21:18
<ahven>
etherboot seems a more better solution imho
21:18
when multiple images are involved
21:18
<vagrantc>
yeah, you can specify a different pxelinux.cfg/ ... when it boots, you should see all the files it tries ... tries a mac based on, and then an ip address based one, and then hashed versions of pieces of the ip address.
21:18
and when it doesn't find any of those, it tries pxelinux.cfg/default
21:19
<pmatulis>
vagrantc: gotcha
21:19
<vagrantc>
read up in the syslinux documentation for how it works
21:19
<pmatulis>
it sounds trivial, why you say not trivial?
21:19
<ahven>
vagrantc, can you perhaps shed some light on my problem as well? :)
21:20
<vagrantc>
ahven: i dont' recall having issues with keyboard ever ... so not much.
21:20
<ahven>
textmode works just fine, ldm doesn't spit out any error to remote-syslog neither
21:26
there are people with quite similar problems but no real answer has been given to most of them
22:03
currently seems that ltsp is having a hard time creating a workable xorg.conf
