try2free, ^^^ :)
00:38
<try2free>
i try with SMODULE_01 = snd-intel8x0 (in lts.conf) but no luck
00:38
Lns: ubuntu 8.04
00:39
<Lns>
try2free, what are the sound chipsets in the clients that don't get it?
00:41
<try2free>
Lns: intel 82801EB AC'97 audio
00:42
<Lns>
hm
00:42
<try2free>
Lns: i try from this instruction http://www.bootpolish.net/pageloader.pl?page=home_ltsp_ltsp5sound_ltsp5clientsound
00:44
<Lns>
have you updated your chroot since ltsp install?
00:44
<try2free>
yes
00:44
why?
00:45
but before update i never test
00:46
<Lns>
sound module might have needed an upgrade since the beginning of 8.04.. see http://tehpost.blogspot.com/2008/07/ubuntu-no-sound-using-intel-corporation.html
00:46
<try2free>
ok, i'll try again latter thanks. i must go now. bye...

hi... does anyone know how to find out if my clients support pxe/LAN boot?

anyone here?
03:53
<alkisg>
newbie_need_hlp: try to enable it from the bios and see if they try to get an ip address
03:56Faithful has quit IRC
03:57Faithful has joined #ltsp
03:59
<newbie_need_hlp>
disk boot failure, insert system and press enter
03:59
i am not sure how to find out if the hard ware supports it, although in the BIOS i am able to slecect LAN boot
03:59
<alkisg>
newbie_need_hlp: what kind of PCs/NICs do you have?
04:00
<newbie_need_hlp>
it's an old motherboard, topstar 815
04:00
<alkisg>
Is the NIC onboard?
04:00
<newbie_need_hlp>
and some generic NIC with a rlt8139D chip
04:01
<alkisg>
If the nic isn't onboard, then usually it doesn't have a boot rom on it (you can usually see an empty place where one can insert the ROM, if he buys one)
04:01
So in this case you'll need to boot from a floppy/cd/hd/usb, see the gpxe project: http://etherboot.org
04:02
<newbie_need_hlp>
the NIC is an adapter card
04:02
i think the motherboard is made in 2001/2
04:03
oh.. so
04:03
<alkisg>
I'd guess that it doesn't support booting from LAN then, unless you go buy a NIC with a ROM on it. E.g. some intel's that contain a boot rom here have 25 €...
04:03
<newbie_need_hlp>
25 euro for a boot rom?
04:04
<alkisg>
No, for the whole nic. Boot roms are cheaper, but require a little research on what to buy
04:04
<newbie_need_hlp>
oh..
04:05
<alkisg>
Go for gpxe :)
04:05
<newbie_need_hlp>
hmm... what would be the most cost effective...
04:05
what is pgxe?
04:05
<alkisg>
The link I gave you above
04:05
<newbie_need_hlp>
oh
04:05
<alkisg>
It's a software that makes your PC boot from network when it doesn't have a boot rom
04:05
<newbie_need_hlp>
i see...
04:05intelliant has quit IRC
04:05
<alkisg>
But you'll need somewhere to store the software; a floppy, cd, hd, usb stick...
04:06
<newbie_need_hlp>
hmm
04:06
well, the thing is, spent about 200 euros for 10 pieces of computers for this hobby
04:07
i am in china...
04:08
<alkisg>
...and? I also use gpxe in my PCs in my school.
04:08
It's open source, it doesn't require any money
04:08
<newbie_need_hlp>
so, either I go buy a whole bunch of floppy and floppy drives, a whole bunch of USBs or a whole bunch of NIC ROMS
04:08
<alkisg>
AH
04:08
So you don't have any boot media? CDs or something?
04:09
<newbie_need_hlp>
nothing to write on
04:09
i mean, if i do it w/ the CD, i would have to go out and buy a CD-ROM
04:09
and a bunch of blank CDs
04:09
<alkisg>
Then yes, I guess you have to buy something. I don't know if the compact flash / ide converter is cheap enough, that would also be a solution.
04:10
...or you could search for boot roms. You may ask in #etherboot on this, they're more knowledgable about which chipsets support which roms.
04:11
<newbie_need_hlp>
well... there's another solution, i can start going to those expos where they give out free USB drives
04:12
<alkisg>
I don't think your motherboards support booting from usb sticks....
04:13
...they're too old for this.
04:13
Try them, though
04:13
<newbie_need_hlp>
hmm
04:13
welll i booted up fedora with them
04:14
<alkisg>
So they support booting from usb then.
04:14
<newbie_need_hlp>
in theory... with my luck... something else might go wrong
04:15
<alkisg>
Well, if you have one usb stick now handy, you could try putting gpxe on it.
04:15
<newbie_need_hlp>
how do i access my usb drive?
04:15
heh, been a decade since i last used linux
04:17
should i make a new one? or get a prebuilt one
04:18
<alkisg>
You should go here: http://rom-o-matic.net/gpxe/gpxe-git/gpxe.git/contrib/rom-o-matic/
04:18
select the usb stick format, download it and write it to your stick.
04:18
<newbie_need_hlp>
thx. let me try it
04:20
how do i find out what kind of img i need?
04:21
<alkisg>
Select the gpxe:all-drivers image, it contains all of them
04:24
<newbie_need_hlp>
ah,
04:24
thx
04:25
do i just move the imaeg to my stick?
04:25
or is there some programs i need to run
04:27
<alkisg>
There are programs, google for them, I haven't used usb stick images
04:28
<newbie_need_hlp>
oh ok
04:29
thx for ur help
