Hi people. I use ubuntu 9.10 and I've installed there the LTSP server. The LTSP environment works fine. I have also installed the ltsp-manager-gnome (former student control panel). When I start this manager I see no cients at all, while there are clients active. Anybody an idea what this can be?
05:13
<alkisg>
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=ltsp-manager
05:13
Same version since hardy ==> it's unmaintained
05:15
<BezNalogov>
Ok, I guess it doesn't work then because ubuntu 9.10 uses LTSP5
05:17
Do you know any control panel that works with LTSP?
05:17
LTSP5 I mean
05:18
<alkisg>
ltsp-manager works with LTSP5
05:18
It doesn't work with LTSP 5.2 though
05:18
(or anyway recent LTSP versions)
05:19
So no, I don't know any control panel that works on Karmic.
05:19
<BezNalogov>
ok thanks

Hey all, I'm new to ltsp but been playing with a mythtv ltsp setup. Everything works on the client except the myth frontend and any sort of video playback. Has anyone seen similar issues before
16:53
<alkisg>
Run gstreamer-properties from the console, test the video from there, and see whatever error messages it displays

16:56
<can-o-worms>
gstreamer-properties reports "option parsing failed: Cannot open display: "
16:57
<alkisg>
That from a gnome-terminal?
16:58
<johnny>
can-o-worms, did you try the mythbuntu setup ?
16:59
<can-o-worms>
xfce terminal, it's a xubuntu install with the gnome-media package installed.
17:00
<alkisg>
well, if it can't find the display, that's a good reason for it not to work
17:00
<johnny>
can-o-worms, if you just want mythfrontend, use mythbuntu plugin
17:02
<can-o-worms>
Sorry i ran that on the ltsp client. If I run it on the server I get the 'Multimedia Systems selector' dialog.
17:02
<alkisg>
It should work fine on the client
17:03
If you run gstreamer-properties on a client and it complains that it can't find the display, then you have a problem...
17:03
<can-o-worms>
The client and server have different gfx cards, is that likely to cause problems?
17:03
<alkisg>
Not really
17:03
There are some rare problems with proprietary drivers on the server, but nothing like this.
17:04
<can-o-worms>
The server is running the proprietry nvidia drivers at the moment
17:04
<alkisg>
For example some intel clients display the screen rotated in the vertical direction when the nvidia drivers are installed on the server
17:05
But "no display found" shouldn't have anything to do with the drivers
17:05
echo $DISPLAY is set?
17:05highvolt1ge has quit IRC
17:07
<can-o-worms>
echo $DISPLAY = localhost:11.0

OK my bad. Was trying to run gstreamer-properties from a root terminal. Under my standard account it works.
17:23
Video test in the gstreamer dialog works ok. ~:-/

<jammcq>
hey rjune
21:24
<rjune>
what's new?
21:24
<jammcq>
hmm, not much
21:24
just keeping busy
21:24
what's up with you?
21:25
<rjune>
too busy, not enough billable.
21:26
saved a buddy about $6k on some storage servers.
21:27
he and I are chatting about online backups now.
21:27
he's got 700GB of data he's wanting to backup to a remote server via the net.
21:27
<jammcq>
hmm
21:27
that'll chew up alot of bandwidth
21:28
<rjune>
according to my math, he'll need 25Mbit just to be able to do a full backup every friday
21:28
<jammcq>
heh
21:28
<rjune>
right now he's got 768k up, which should take about 80 days.
21:28
<jammcq>
heh, start that every friday :)
21:29
is it 700GB of NEW data every week?
21:29
<rjune>
I'll round it up to a full three months just to make for easy math
21:29
no
21:29
700GB total
21:29
it'll only get bigger though
21:29
County Govt
21:29
<jammcq>
so can he use rsync to only transfer the changed stuff?
21:29
or is it a database?
21:30
<rjune>
Some db stuff probably.
21:30
mostly files I think
21:30
<jammcq>
hmm, with Postgres, you can push transaction log files across the net, and use them to mirror the data on the remote end
21:31
<rjune>
sql server.
21:31
I'm sure it does some of taht.
21:31
he can use rsync. but to restore incremental backups. you need to restore all of them.
21:31
<jammcq>
oh, so he's used to spending a fortune
21:31
<rjune>
County Govt.
21:31
state decrees X, he uses X
