<nicolasb>
hello i m trying to setup ltsp but currently everything hang when ldm start ( screen displays but no keyboard nor mouse) , i ve tried to update sss keys and kernels but since my setup is not exactly default i m not sure if the connection actually starts
03:10
how can i check if the connection is ok or how can i debug ldm?
03:11
i suspect connection is the prblem because i have the same problem wether i try the ldm / rdesktop or startx
03:21
<ogra>
connection as well as ssh keys only matter *after* you log in
03:21
neither has anything to do with X bringing up input support
03:24bobby_C has joined #ltsp
03:25
<nicolasb>
ok thanks then how can i debug currently as soon as the screen appears i loose the mouse and keyboard
03:26
i ve tried looking at the X.log but theres nothing inside
03:26
or more exactly veryy little
03:29
sorry i was blind i have this (==) ModulePath set to "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
03:29
(II) Cannot locate a core pointer device.
03:29
(II) Cannot locate a core keyboard device.
03:29
(II) The server relies on HAL to provide the list of input devices.
03:29
If no devices become available, reconfigure HAL or disable AllowEmptyInput.

Hi, I have a little problem with my LTSP system and I'm wondering if someone here could help. It's about usb memory sticks - they don't mount properly when inserted to clients' usb ports.
04:38nicolasb has quit IRC
04:38
<traien>
On my server I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 beta 2.
04:39nicolasb has joined #ltsp
04:39nicolasb1 has quit IRC
04:41
<traien>
And I have LOCALDEV=True and LOCAL_STORAGE=True in my lts.conf. I've checked that client machines regognize the stick (I enabled client side root account with chroot) and it's shown in /var/run/drives

<traien>
So there is nobody around who could help me?
05:28
<alkisg>
traien: distro/version?
05:28
<traien>
Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64
05:29
You've read my problem?
05:29
<alkisg>
Yeah I've just seen the logs. What file system is your usb formatted with?
05:29
<traien>
I've also followed this guide: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebugLocalDev but it didn't help.
05:30
Its FAT32...
05:30
But it works when inserted into the servers usb port.
05:30
So the file system souldn't be the problem.
05:30
<alkisg>
Can you try with a different stick? I've seen cases where it's mounted on the server but not on the clients, but if it's reformatted from gparted, then it also works on the client.
05:31
<traien>
Yes I have.
05:32
But there's one thing with the guide... When I type lsmod | grep fuse it seems that fuse is not loaded on the server. The fuse packages are installed and /dev/fuse exists. Could that cause the problem?
05:32
modprobe fuse doesn't do anything either
05:33
<alkisg>
I think that's not a problem, there were some changes in fuse in karmic afaik
05:33
<traien>
Ok
05:35
<alkisg>
traien: I'm not very familiar with ltspfsd so I can't help, but if you don't get an answer, try again in a few hours, more people/ltsp devs are online then.
05:36
<traien>
alkisg: Ok, thanks. I'll ask later when there are more people around.

07:28komunista has joined #ltsp
07:28
<traien>
Or maybe I'll just have to wait a bit longer...
07:29
<Appiah>
maybe you should just ask
07:29
<komunista>
hello all
07:30
<traien>
Ok
07:31
The problem is related to usb memory sticks. They won't mount. I followed the instructions on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebugLocalDev and they weren't much useful.
07:31
I can mount them on the server but the client side doesn't function.
07:31
<Appiah>
Dist? LTSP version?
07:32
<traien>
Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64
07:32
LTSP5
07:33
<Appiah>
and what happend when your tried manually?
07:35
<traien>
Well the client regognizes the plug event and when I'm root@ client I can mount them to the client's local file system...
07:35
But I didn't try the command "ssh -X -S /var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_192.168.0.254 192.168.0.254 "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /tmp add" yet...
07:36
The command ltspfsmounter doesn't exist...
07:36
<ogra>
do you have ltspfs installed on the server ?
07:36
<Appiah>
>_>
07:37
<ogra>
(its a dependency of ltsp-server though it should be there)
07:37
<traien>
Yes, it's installed.
07:37
<Appiah>
dpkg -l ltspfs | grep ^ii
07:37
<traien>
ii ltspfs 0.6-0ubuntu1
07:37
<Appiah>
and in the fuse group
07:37
`?
07:37
<ogra>
you dont need the fuxe group on 10.04
07:37
*fuse
07:38
<Appiah>
I see
07:38* Appiah have yet to try 10.04
07:38
<traien>
Could my problem be a bug related to 10.04 and 64-bit environment?
07:38
<ogra>
fuse is no a module anymore and the permissions for using fuse devices have been loosened, no group boundary anymore
07:39
no
07:39
<traien>
ok
07:39
<ogra>
you use a normal gnome desktop ?
07:39
<traien>
yes
07:40
<ogra>
and there is nothing apprearinf on the server in /media if you plug in the USB key on a client ?
07:42
<traien>
nothing appears
07:43
<ogra>
did you add an lts.conf ?
07:44
<traien>
My lts.conf looks like this:
07:44
[default]
07:44
<ogra>
dont paste if its more than three lines !
07:44
!pastebin
07:44
<ltspbot`>

07:44
<traien>
It's not...
07:45
<ogra>
ok
07:45
<traien>
X_COLOR_DEPTH=16 LDM_DIRECX=True LOCALDEV=True
07:45
<ogra>
apart from LDM_DIRCETX thats all defaults
07:45
*DIRECTX
07:45
<Appiah>
Does dmesg say anything?
07:46
<traien>
and LOCAL_STORAGE=True is not needed? I also tried that but it didn't make difference.
07:46
<ogra>
no
07:46
try without lts.conf first anyway, move it out of place
07:46
is your usb key having proper partitions ?
07:47
<traien>
Yes and it works when inserted into server's usb port.
07:47
<ogra>
that doesnt matter
07:47
but it is partitioned ?
07:47
<traien>
I've also tried several other usb keys. None of them work. And they are partitioned properly.
07:48
<ogra>
(i.e. it shows up in demsg as /dev/sda1 not just /dev/sda)
07:48
<traien>
dmesg on the server says nothing about the usb key... when I log on the client (Alt+F1) using the root password of the ltsp chroot environment, then dmesg shows the information about the usb key and I can also mount it locally
07:53
Now I've moved my lts.conf but it didn't make any difference.
07:53
<ogra>
you rebooted the client after doing that ?
07:53
<traien>
ofcourse
07:53
<ogra>
(lts.conf is read on boot)
07:53
ok
07:53
<traien>
I know
07:54br_ain has quit IRC
07:55
<ogra>
so if you plug in your usb key and issue: ssh -X -S /var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_192.168.0.254 192.168.0.254 "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /dev/sda1 add
07:55
in your clients rootshell, what does that return
07:55
<traien>
there are two of them actually, but the /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf is empty already... I've used the one located in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64
07:56
<ogra>
/opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf is overwritten on boot
07:56
<traien>
ok
07:56
<ogra>
and should be empty all the time
07:57
oh, the command above misses a "
07:57
at the end
07:57
<traien>
Ok, I'll try the command... one moment please
07:58
<ogra>
make sure a user is logged in while you try that
07:58
and indeed that the USB key is plugged into the client
07:58
<traien>
but... the command ltspfsmounter doesn't exist
07:59
there are only ltspfs_mount and ltspfs_umount
07:59
<ogra>
on the server ?
08:00
ssh -X -S /var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_192.168.0.254 192.168.0.254 means "execute this command though the ssh tunnel established for socket /var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_192.168.0.254 on the machine 192.168.0.254"
08:00
<traien>
Oh, sorry... :)
08:00
it does exist
08:00
<ogra>
right
08:00
its part of ltspfs

ERROR connecting

08:05
<alkisg>
Firewalls?
08:05
<ogra>
/tmp/.koe-ltspfs/tmp ?
08:05
did you try my command from above ?
08:05
"/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /dev/sda1 add"
08:05
<traien>
It also asked about RSA key fingerprint and I replied "yes".
08:06
<ogra>
hrm, shouldnt have done that
08:06
since you used an existing socket
08:06
/var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_192.168.0.254 exists i suppose ?
08:09
<traien>
no
08:09mikkel has joined #ltsp
08:10evilx has quit IRC
08:10
<traien>
there was /var/run/ldm_socket_3065_vt7_192.168.0.1
08:10
now I tried that and there was no error messages
08:10
but the usb key still didn't mount
08:11
and now there are no ldm_socket* files on /var/run
08:11
<Appiah>
problem with keys? ltsp-update-image?
08:12
err
08:16nicolasb has joined #ltsp
08:16
<traien>
hmm. stupid me... I didn't notice that after running the ssh command I was logged on the server... and on the server /var/run/ldm_socket didn't exist...
08:16
so the command runs without error messages
08:16
mut the usb stick doesn't mount
08:17wsuetholz has quit IRC

<traien>
on the server dmesg says nothing
08:18
<Appiah>
I thought there was a ltsp PPA or was that stgraber's PPA?
08:19
<traien>
PPA?
08:22
but anyway... in the client's rootshell there is /var/run/ldm_socket_3356_192_168_0_1... And I ran the command: ssh -X -S /var/run/ladm_socket_3356_192_168_0_1 192.168.0.1. "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /dev/sdb1 add" (the memory stick on the client appears on /dev/sdb1)
08:24
and there was no result: the memory stick icon didn't appear on the desktop
08:25
and when I try this command subtituting /dev/sdb1 with /tmp (suggested on the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebugLocalDev) there's also no result
08:26
I'm sorry if my explanation has been a little confusing... But you have also no idea what could be wrong?
08:37
Now I have a new result... Afre updating ltsp-image...
08:38
Wrote 20d etc.etc. size 32, waiting

08:43
I've had this problem before, but for the life of me can't remember what the cause was:
08:44
My thin clients (on 10.04 or 9.10) start to log in, I see the user's background image and the login music starts, but then it cuts off and reverts to the LDM login page
08:44
Does this ring a bell to anyone?
08:45
<traien>
I've had the same problem.
08:45
<shawnp0wers>
Any chance you remember what the problem was? :)
08:45
<traien>
Unfortunately no.
08:45
<shawnp0wers>
lol… me neither. :)
08:46
<traien>
I had it with Ubuntu 8.04..
08:46
<Appiah>
shawnp0wers: I had that
08:46
that was a user profile error
08:46
and/or permission issue
08:46
<shawnp0wers>
permission on what though?
08:46
<Appiah>
gnome should log that into some session log
08:46
<shawnp0wers>
this user (me!) can log on to other servers just fine...
08:46
<Appiah>
shawnp0wers: homedir
08:46
<shawnp0wers>
ok, I'll go look there...
08:47
<Appiah>
check the gnome session log
08:47
<traien>
but nobody has anything to say about my problem and this authentication error I had?
08:48
<shawnp0wers>
traien: I just joined the channel
08:48
what authentication error?
08:48
did you run ltsp-update-sshkeys ?
08:48
and then ltsp-update-image?
08:49
Appiah: Hmm, "unable to open X display x.x.x.x:7.0"
08:49
yet, the desktop appears
08:49
<Appiah>
oh ltsp-update-sshkeys ! :D
08:49
<shawnp0wers>
so X works, at least momentarily
08:50
yes, sadly I tried that...
08:51
<traien>
shawnp0wers: I've been troubleshooting LocalDev... The usb keys inserted into clients' usb ports won't mount. And when I run: ssh -X -S /var/run/ladm_socket_3356_192_168_0_1 192.168.0.1 "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /dev/sdb1 add" I get the error message: Authentication failed. Error: /tmp/.koe-ltspfs/sdb1 is not mountted
08:51
<shawnp0wers>
traien: have you tried ltsp-update-sshkeys ?
08:52
and then you must rebuild the image I believe
08:52
<Appiah>
shawnp0wers: but you did do ltsp-update-image too right?
08:54
<shawnp0wers>
Yep...
08:54
and it's all users
08:54
(just retried to make sure)
08:54
<Appiah>
and the gnome error just says unable to open X display?
08:55
<shawnp0wers>
well, it says a LOT
08:55
lol
08:55
I'm clearing it now to see what is "fresh"
08:55
<Appiah>
pastebin :D
08:56
<traien>
shawnp0wers: Now I've tried ltsp-update-sshkeys and ltsp-update-image and rebooted the client... The problem remains... And that must be also the reason why the usb keys didn't work in the first place.

08:57
traien: There may be issues with users needing to be in the fuse group, but I'm not positive
08:58
<traien>
shawnp0wers: Some one said before that when using Ubuntu 10.04 the fuse group is not needed anymore.
08:59
<shawnp0wers>
They're probably correct — there was a workaround before that I had to do. (Adding 1000 users to a group that didn't exist on my LDAP server wasn't possible...)
08:59
<alkisg>
shawnp0wers: that same behavior also happens with compiz problems...
08:59
!compiz
08:59
<ltspbot`>

09:00
<Appiah>
is your lts.conf up to date shawnp0wers ?
09:00
<shawnp0wers>
Appiah: it should be
09:00
I have tweaked it only slightly
09:00
<Appiah>
do you have nfs homedirs?
09:00
<shawnp0wers>
yes.
09:01
<Appiah>
might be something there..
09:01
<shawnp0wers>
oddly, earlier today I had this problem, but it seemd to magically disappear
09:01
I didn't *do* anything
09:01

nfs is maybe borking

<shawnp0wers>
so it's a bit frustrating. :)
09:01
it could be
09:01
it's a test server
09:01
lemme restart it
09:01
and see if it heals
09:02
BUT, it does read enough to write the error file...
09:02
<traien>
Very irritating... Should I just make an error report or is this problem just a result of misconfiguration... the documentation doesn't help much.

09:02
did you upgrade to 10.04?
09:02
or is it a clean install?
09:03
<traien>
It's a clean install.
09:03
<Appiah>
10.04 is being released tommorow :)
09:03
<traien>
This server had a working 9.04 installation but it was erased.
09:03
So I made a clean install.
09:04
So maybe I should make a clean 10.04 install tomorrow and hope for the best?
09:04
This installation I have now was beta1 and then updated to beta2... And now this should be rc...

But I've had this memory stick problem all the time.
09:05
I've waited that some update would fix that but...
09:05
With 10.04 the memory sticks should work with the default configuration and not cause any problems, if I understood right.
09:06
<Appiah>
I know USB disk/sticks is a bug in Jaunty
09:07
<traien>

Ubuntu 9.04
09:08
there's a workaround on the wiki for that
09:09
<lfaraone>
~douardda linked the ltsp trunk branch to bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp/+bug/415952, but I couldn't find anywhere in the revision history where this was fixed. Have the casts in ltspfsd_functions.c been corrected?
09:10
<traien>
Appiah: Ok, I don't remember these "codenames"... So 10.04 is Lucid...
09:10
<Appiah>
traien: well I dont blame you :)
09:11wsuetholz has joined #ltsp

<traien>
but it's still unclear to me why mounting the usb key gives an authentication error... maybe there's nothing I can do about it... or should I write a bug report?
09:15
<lfaraone>
traien: by the way, you can't directly go to 10.04 (Lucid) from 9.04 (Jaunty), you need to go through 9.10 (Karmic) first or do a clean install.
09:15wsuetholz has quit IRC
09:17
<traien>
lfaraone: Ok but that's not the problem here because the 9.04 installations have been already fully erased. Anyway there was no usb memory stick problems with that installation... The problem came along just after this clean 10.04 installation.
09:17
<lfaraone>
traien: if you're encountering USB issues under 10.04, yes, that should be a bug if it did not exist in previous versions.
09:19
<traien>
Ok. I'll make an error report. But first I'll wait for the final 10.04 version and hope for the best. Who knows if they have already fixed the bug by then.

Fortunately I have two identical servers so I can make a clean installation tomorrow.

While running `sudo rsync -av myhomedir mybackupdir`, rsync creates all hidden (starting with dot) directories with root as the owner, instead of alkisg. Isn't `-a` supposed to preserve dir ownership? What am I doing wrong?

10:00
<komunista>
I am using similar wy, only not by sudo and the file/dirs owner are preserved
10:00
but now I see: the user is preserved by name, but group is preserved by the GID number :-)
10:01
but this can be, because I have the same users on both macines, but not same groups

if your running firefox from the local thin client, is there a way you can set it up to use a certain home directory and proxy server?
11:28
without having to go terminal to terminal
11:30
<johnny>
emence, you can set some things in /etc/firefox
11:30
i forget what filenames they are in there, but it acts the same as the user.js files you would put in your own personal profile
11:30
<alkisg>
Depends on the distro, version, firefox version etc
11:31

hmm? firefox version?
11:31
how so?

what did they go changing..

hello guys. i have a 24 Port 10/100 switch with 2 GBit ports. If i connect the server to the GBit port, does all the clients have about 10MBits rate?
13:02
<johnny>
the clients have the rate of the max of their card speed.. and then the max port speed..
13:03
so.. if the cards are 100..and the ports are max 100.. then it should be 100..
13:04
<gc_domrep>
yes the client cards are 100. But i am wondering if the switch is able to handle e.g 10 x 10Mbit to 100Mbit to the GBit port
13:08
<johnny>
10 x 100 you mean..
13:08
that's up to your switch .. you'll probably be fine

14:39
1. fixed the keymap sed and change the functionname, configure_console from ltsp-init-common is not needed
14:39
2. removed bind_unmounts configure_fstab configure_localdev, they are also in ltsp-init-common
14:39
3. configure_resolver is executed before the one in ltsp-init-common is loaded, now it works

changed tabs to spaces in the rest of the changes

mjk64, then you want to use fat client support
16:08
not sure if there is a fat client support for debian or not tho
16:09
ask vagrantc ..
16:10
<mjk64>
johnny: fat-client support sounds like a good google keyword, thanks =)
16:10
<johnny>
mjk64, but.. the person who would implement such a thing is right here
16:11
mjk64, do this..
16:11
<mjk64>
Wait, I thought that already existed?
16:11
<johnny>
find /usr/share/ltsp -iname '*fatclient*'
16:11highvoltage has joined #ltsp
16:12
<johnny>
mjk64, it exists for ubuntu.. not sure about debian
16:12
altho obviously it wouldn't be too hard to make it sharable
16:13
<alkisg>
It should be there in testing, but probably ...untested :)
16:14
<johnny>
ah.. alkisg
16:15
<mjk64>
johnny: Damn, not in Debian
16:15
I'll surf the web a little for that ...
16:15
<johnny>
mjk64, alkisg says it is in testing
16:15
so.. you would need to install ltsp-srver from testing
16:16highvoltage has quit IRC
16:16
<mjk64>
Hm, that's an idea ... let's see about its dependencies ....
16:16
<johnny>
shouldn't be too bad
16:16
<alkisg>
Check the stable backports too... what ltsp version is there?
16:17
http://packages.debian.org/source/lenny-backports/ltsp
16:18
5.2-1~bpo50+1, yup, it should contain the ubuntu code there, so with a bit of patching you could get it running in debian. It won't work out of the box, though.
16:18
<mjk64>
Ahaaa!
16:19
In the testing version, I have /usr/share/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/Ubuntu/030-fat-client
16:19
alkisg: patching? Patching what?
16:19
<alkisg>
That script, mostly
16:20
E.g. now it tries to autodetect the DE from x|ku|ed|ubuntu
16:20
<mjk64>
Ah okay, will look into that
16:21
<alkisg>
...if you specify a "FAT_CLIENT_DESKTOPS" parameter though, you could get past the autodetection code
16:22
Also you should remove the "ubuntu-standard" reference at the bottom
16:23
And you'd need to symlink it to the debian dir for it to take effect
16:23
If you got something that works, we could probably push it upstream.
16:24
<mjk64>
alkisg: Thanks for all the hints!
16:24

np, feel free to ping me if you get stuck at any point.
