03:15

Hey, where's the LTSP5 code? My distribution doesn't have a package, and there are a number of us that want to make one.

hello all
13:01
is it possible to create Linux and Windows terminals ?
13:02
<Appiah>
?
13:02
you want to be able to logon to a windows terminal server?
13:02
<wathek>
I'm migrating to Linux and I couldn't do a brutal migration to Linux I need to have Windows as terminal
13:02
Appiah, yep
13:03
<Appiah>
you can set LDM (the login manager) to logon to a windows server with rdesktop (RDP)
13:03
<wathek>
Appiah, I know it's not really the right place to ask a such question but I'm looking to do same thing as LTSP but instead of getting Linux I want to get Windows
13:03
<Appiah>
The only issue I know of is about using USB devices ... dunno if thats solved
13:05alkisg has quit IRC
13:05
<Appiah>
but yes you set some or all clients to connect to a windows terminal server
13:05
<wathek>
Appiah, will that work with a network boot ?
13:05
<Appiah>
yupp
13:06
<wathek>
cool
13:06
Appiah, so I need to set up a Windows Terminal Server and what else ?
13:06
<Appiah>
well I cant really help you with setting up a windows terminal server >_>
13:07
<wathek>
Appiah, lol I've never set up a Windows Server I hate that but I've no other solution as I said I can't make a brutal migration
13:07
<Appiah>
Well install a windows server 2003/2008 and check Terminal server , get the licsenses and all that M$ stuff
13:08
<wathek>
lool
13:08
ok
13:08
<Appiah>
if you dont a have Windows terminal servers today how can that be a migration?
13:08
and why do you need LTSP at all ?
13:09
<wathek>
Appiah, I'm gonna buy a new server and I'm gonna install VMWare ESXi into and then create an LTSP and a Windows Server
13:13
Appiah, I need LTSP coz I'm migrating all the computers to Linux and there are some software that still run on Windows
13:13
Appiah, so until I finish the developpement
13:14
<Appiah>
So what will LTSP server do?
13:14
<wathek>
Appiah, of the softwares for Linux I need Windows
13:14
Appiah, I don't want the client to get a standalone OS
13:15
Appiah, it's easier to centralize everything into one server
13:15
<Appiah>
and you dont wanna buy thin clients with OS to connect to the windows server
13:15
you want to PXE boot them and fat clients with LTSP to connect to windows terminal servers?
13:16
<wathek>
Appiah, no I'll get two types of thin clients some of them will boot on Linux the other on Windows
13:16
<roy_hobbs>
johnny: my distro is Arch
13:17
<johnny>
then you'll want take a look at the various distro plugins
13:17
and use them as a template
13:17
and integrate your installer into them
13:17
it's gonna involve reading the code of ltsp-build-client so you know how to integrate the options
13:17
roy_hobbs, feel free to branch it start start your own plugin branch
13:18
<roy_hobbs>
ok
13:24
Is there a main Distro agnostic branch or should I choose one?
13:25
<johnny>
i did the initial gentoo support
13:25
i mixed and matched between ubuntu/fedora
13:25
for the client setup code
13:26
but if you look at the ltsp-build-client code, i go as quickly as a can to the installer program (quickstarty)
13:26
quickstart*
13:26
but.. i don't know what the arch automated installer code is like
13:26
but if you were to make a basic automated installer thiing.. you could probably get some help as to how to take it farther
13:26
<roy_hobbs>
So this is something that needs to be setup at install time?
13:27
I had trouble finding docs about what ltsp currently is, since the transition to 5
13:27
<johnny>
just look at code the code..
13:27
that's all i did
13:27
<roy_hobbs>
ok
13:28
<johnny>
fedora's code and mine are the closest, as quickstart is modeled after redhat's kickstart
13:28
food time..
13:28
i recommend examining the build client code
13:28
before moving forward
13:28
it's all under server/
13:34
<roy_hobbs>
yeah i'll have to get back to this, i haev some stuff to do today. thanks for getting me started
