<garymc>
hi anyone know the command to add a user in the terminal window?
11:16pasmen has quit IRC
11:16
<vagrantc>
garymc: depends on what distro
11:16
<garymc>
ubuntu
11:17
<vagrantc>
garymc: on debian/ubuntu, adduser $username
11:17
<garymc>
I get the error: Only one or two usernames allowed
11:18
whats going on here?
11:19
<vagrantc>
garymc: what's the exact command you use?
11:23tarbo has joined #ltsp
11:23
<garymc>
adduser
11:24
or adduser $dave
11:24
<vagrantc>
what's $dave expand to?
11:27
<garymc>
what you mean?
11:27
i just want to add a LTSP user
11:27
<vagrantc>
well, $dave is a variable name... it could contain anything
11:28
<garymc>
??
11:29
i just want to add another user account in ubuntu LTSP
11:29
<vagrantc>
yes, i understand that, and i'm trying to get useful troubleshooting informationm out of you. i'm not psychic.
11:30tarbo has quit IRC
11:32
<vagrantc>
garymc: in order to understand what's happening, i need to know exactly what you're doing ... and "adduser $dave" doesn't actually tell me what it's doing without knowing what "$dave" actually is. it's a variable.
11:33
$dave could equal "foobar" or "; rm -rf /" or "#@$^%YSdfg%$^"
11:35
though typing "addduser" without any arguments should work, but then i need to know how you're answering the questions it's asking
11:41
<garymc>
it ok i just type : sudo adduser dave
11:41
that worked fine

<alkisg>
vagrantc: would you object to providing the ability to set the hostname from lts.conf? http://ltsp.pastebin.com/m12690d31
12:10
(hi!)
12:11
<vagrantc>
alkisg: no
12:11
<alkisg>
Thanks, pushing... :)
12:11
<vagrantc>
alkisg: though there might be some slight change of getltscfg returning different information than ltsp_config ...
12:11
<alkisg>
Erm... sorry?!
12:12
<vagrantc>
don't worry about it
12:12
but basically calling getltscfg directly rather than using ltsp_config could result in inconsistancies... i.e. if ltsp_config sets a default for which none gets set...
12:13
maybe that was part of the original code...
12:13
<alkisg>
We did call getltscfg at that point, I didn't add the call
12:13
<vagrantc>
right
12:14
<alkisg>
The usecase is [mac-address] HOSTNAME=my-pc
12:14
<vagrantc>
alkisg: it's hard to know what you've changed if you post the whole script :)
12:14
alkisg: yeah.
12:14
<alkisg>
bzr diff: http://paste.ubuntu.com/366333/
12:15
I just indended some lines so it looks like I changed much - but I didn't...
12:16
<vagrantc>
bzr di --diff-options -w
12:16
<alkisg>
http://paste.ubuntu.com/366335/
12:16
(ty)
12:17
<vagrantc>
alkisg: the first parts shouldn't be necessary...
12:17
this code is only run at boot time
12:18
although the code is fine... the comment just doesn't make any sense
12:18
<alkisg>
vagrantc: if I run "chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-generic-XXXX", this code is *executed*
12:18
<vagrantc>
what?!
12:18
<alkisg>
I get an error about cat not reading the /proc.../hostname file
12:18
<vagrantc>
alkisg: that seems like a bug.
12:19
there's *no* reason to run these scripts at that point
12:19
<alkisg>
I wanted to ask you about that, maybe it's a Lucid problem
12:19
<vagrantc>
alkisg: and apart from that... you could have proc mounted anyways.
12:19
<alkisg>
update-initramfs -u doesn't run them...
12:19
Sure, but if it isn't mounted, there's no harm in not setting the hostname
12:19
<vagrantc>
alkisg: my guess is it's some other script
12:20
<alkisg>
No no I verified this, I can reproduce it at any time
12:20
<vagrantc>
bug in initramfs-tools.
12:20
<alkisg>
But if it's a Lucid bug, of course that code shouldn't be included...
12:20
Got it. OK, I'll remove this and report the bug. Thanks!
12:20
<vagrantc>
alkisg: i'd worry about setting the hostname on the server....
12:21
<alkisg>
It'd be nice to have a consistent way to see if we're in a running client, or in the chroot...
12:21
<vagrantc>
yeah.

15:47
