<ahven>
that no keyboard and mouse problem is driving me slowly crazy
05:22
the only real way of finding out the cause might be seeing the xserver startup log...but when it starts it hangs the keyboard&mouse and no way of getting that log from the client
05:25
<cyberorg>
ahven, CONFIGURE_X=true and CONFIGURE_X_COMMAND=/usr/share/ltsp/configure-x.sh
05:25
try that in lts.conf
05:25
<ahven>
I think I've had those 2 lines in my configuration but trying again
05:26
no go
05:27
it happens on a virtual machine and on physical hardware, for me it looks like a installation screwup
05:27
<cyberorg>
ahven, check keyboard and mouse related variables in docs in /topic
05:28
<ahven>
basically I should fire up knoppix for example and look what it detects over there
05:29
any way of forwarding that xserver startup log to the syslog?
06:00Ahmuck has joined #ltsp
06:05
<alkisg>
ahven, you can install sshd on the chroot and ssh to the terminal when they keyb/mouse are stack.
06:19
<ahven>
thought about that, going to try knoppix live-cd LTS as well
06:58
interesting..
06:58
http://pastebin.com/d3de5d932 << this is my log from my IBM T23
06:58
seems that it isn't interested in keyboards and mice whatsoever
06:59
ok, didn't see that in the first place
06:59
(II) Cannot locate a core pointer device.
06:59
(II) Cannot locate a core keyboard device.
07:01
I seem to understand what's going on
07:02
ltsp didn't install any input modules
07:02
that's why it isn't able to find any keyboard/mouse
07:03
The following NEW packages will be installed:
07:03
xserver-xorg-input-all xserver-xorg-input-synaptics{a} xserver-xorg-input-wacom{a}
07:03
I should file a bugreport on this?

07:18
<ahven>
thanks, will keep it in mind
07:18
seems that the debian ltsp isn't installing everything
07:18
(EE) Failed to load module "kbd" (module does not exist, 0)
07:20
those were not installed as well

ok, trying out the xorg generation then as well
07:44
mac-based configuration isn't working at all
07:44
it still tries to load the (nonexisting) xorg.conf
08:40
hmm... I'm missing a point over here.. the thinclients is read-only but the configure-x.sh wants to write the xorg.conf over there?
08:41
thinclients /etc *

almost the same problem, I have /tmp r-w but /var & /etc r-o

<ahven>
heh...even with /etc/X11 nicely with RW permissions the CONFIGURE_X = True doesn't do anything, running configure-x.sh manually creates the xorg.conf
09:16
from my point of view, seems a "bit" broken package

If I run a separate DHCP server should my TFTP server be on my LTSP server and not my DHCP server?
18:57
<Gadi_eeepc>
map7: that is completely up to you, but it would be easiest to keep the tftp server on the ltsp box
18:58
that way, it will be updated correctly with the server-side ltsp scripts
19:00
<map7>
I've setup Ubuntu 904 i386 and installed ltsp-server-standalone openssh-server, built my client using 'ltsp-build-client', but I keep getting the error 'TFTP open timeout' on my clients
19:02
<stgraber>
sbalneav: just found this one: http://video.ubuntu.com/uds/dapper/ltsp-3110.ogg
19:04
<map7>
I can connect to my LTSP server using tftp on another computer, does this mean that there is something wrong with my dhcpd config?
19:48otavio has quit IRC
19:49
<pmatulis>
what's the point of the root-path in dhcpd.conf if the image is stored elsewhere?

Some applications on my client start really slow, is there a simple explanation for this?
21:53
EG: Inkscape on the server starts in 4 secs, on the client it starts in 93 seconds
21:54
But: Openoffice starts in 2 seconds on the server and 3 seconds on the client
21:54
so why does inkscape play up?

<map7>
I notice if I install something on the server I can access it on the client, but is this the correct way to do things, should I instead only install software through chrooting to the LTSP image and then updating the image after I'm done?
22:20
<stgraber>
map7: that's a known bug
22:20
map7: what distribution is that ?
22:20
<map7>
Ubuntu
22:20
<stgraber>
(for the inkscape/gimp/java slowness that's)
22:20
<map7>
904
22:20
<stgraber>
ok, 2s
22:21
I have a pending SRU for that waiting approval
22:21
map7: i386 or amd64 ?
22:22
<map7>
i386
22:22
<stgraber>
ok, do that:
22:22
- edit /etc/apt/sources.list on the server
22:23
- add: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stgraber/ppa/ubuntu main
22:23
- save and close the file
22:23
- sudo apt-get update
22:24
- sudo apt-get install $(dpkg -l | grep libxcb | awk '{print $2}' | tr '\n' ' ')
22:24
- edit /etc/apt/sources.list
22:24
- remove the line you added
22:24
- save and close the file
22:24
that way you only upgrade the library you need and don't get the other backports that are in my PPA
22:25
because if you'd simply upgrade with my PPA turned on, you'd basically get LTSP and some other stuff from 9.10 which I'm pretty sure you don't want :)
22:27
<map7>
When I add that link to my souces.list I get 'Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)'
22:27
do I have to put jaunty before main?
22:35
<stgraber>
indeed, sorry
22:37
<map7>
I'm getting a GPG error now on that addition to sources.list
22:38
<stgraber>
yeah, that's fine, will work even with that
22:39
it's just because you don't have the gpg key for that PPA so it can't check the package list signature but it'll let you install stuff from it anyway (but will show a warning)
22:39
<map7>
no problem
22:39
do I have to rebuild my client image or reboot my LTSP clients?
22:40
<stgraber>
no, that package only goes on the server so no reboot or image rebuilding required
22:40
<map7>
hold on I just managed to load up inkscape really fast on one of my clients
22:40
that's fantastic thanks stgraber
22:40
<stgraber>
np
22:41
<map7>
So is that going into the next release of LTSP for Ubuntu 904?
22:41
<stgraber>
a stable release update is planned for that package in 9.04 and it's already fixed in 9.10 (development release)

Is it worth running a 64bit server to 32bit clients? and is there any major problems?
23:01
When I tried Ubuntu 904 64bit with LTSP my ASUS eee box B202 thin client displayed the screen upside down and back the front when it loaded into the OS.
23:02
the login screen was fine
23:02
this could be because I had nvidia drivers installed on the server and my thin client has an intel driver.
