I am trying to boot a client with rom-o-matic image. I get an error on client "No filename or root path specified". How do I fix this ? I am using dnsmaq as proxy dhcp server

a while back I made up a custom kernel image for some laptops we had, they can't etherboot, so it needed to be done
now we are thinking of doing the same for ltsp-5
I haven't much of clue were to start
are there any docs of how this is done for the newer LTSP releases?
|08:12||ogra has joined #ltsp|
|08:18||GodFather has joined #ltsp|
BenG: nothing special, I just needed to patch stock 2.6.33 kernel with aufs2 for ubuntu/karmic ltsp client
but I need the starting process of booting the kernel on the clients
that's the big issue
so you're booting from some limited local storage on each laptop? where is the issue here, i don't see difference if kernel is loaded by etherboot or by syslinux/grub/lilo
BenG: are you talking about an ether boot image (rom-o-matic.net)?
no, I need a kernel image for the laptops themselves, to live on local storage just as bbd said
why can't they etherboot?
I manually compiled one for ltsp-4.2, but as bbd said, I might just need to use the stock LTSP kernel on there
Gadi, oh, it's such a sad story, they are old and will not take to such modern protocols
we use PCMCIA NICs on them
ah, I see
it's the PCMCIA thing
they have no inbuilt network cards
This page from ages ago relates to this suite of laptops: http://www.bristolwireless.net/wiki/index.php/PCMCIABootGPXE
yeah, I would just add the pcmcia drivers to the chroot's /etc/modules and update the initramfs
|09:04||thunsucker has joined #ltsp|
then load the kernel and initramfs on the laptop with your choice of bootloader and pass it nbdroot on the kernel command line
|09:08||vvinet has quit IRC|
|09:11||ogra has quit IRC|
Gadi, I don't understand the last bit sorry
"pass it nbdroot on the kernel command line"
BenG: will you be using Ubunut?
ah, then nevermind that last bit
|09:24||* BenG wishes there was a distro called Ubunut|
Debian still uses NFS by default for the rootfs of the thin client
Ubuntu uses an exported NBD image
sure, I think we will try to use NBD though, for speed
NFS knows where to mount from option root-path in dhcpd.conf
okay, so that might be easier
to start with at least
though it's going to be very tight on memory, they only have 32Mb RAM
NBD knows where to mount either from assuming that the dhcp server is the nbd server (which it may still be in your case) or from a kernel command line argument (nbdroot)
taht certainly is tight
you will want to set up NBD swap, as well
fine for ltsp-4.2
hehe - 4.2 was a different beast
is anyone running 5 with so little RAM?
not sure -and "5" is much more vague
as it takes on the characteristic of the distro
so, you need to ask - is anyone running a debian lenny ltsp5 chroot on such little ram
yeah, will be minimal kernel recompile specific to the laptops
right - but debian lenny has a different memory footprint than redhat or ubuntu or suse
|09:34||alkisg has joined #ltsp|
Gadi, got ya
I'll be cutting down the packages that boot in the guest too
there'll be no sound
but I'm jumping ahead, I'll try to get one booted firest
cheers for the help Gadi, I'll report back

Anyone know why gsynaptics will not work on the karmic fatclient, even though I have xorg and fdi SHMConfig set? Thank you.
"Will not work"
Does it give you a error message?
Yes, it states Gsyn couldn't init.
You have to set SHMConfig true in org.conf or XF85Config to use Gsynaptics.
can you enable some debug info?
or check som gsyn log
maybe it says why it cant init
there is no XF86Config anymore.. gone for ages..
oh, whoops, I renamed xrog.conf when I put the fdi bit in.
also.. there should be no reason to edit xorg.conf these days
pretty sure even synaptics doesn't require it
altho.. perhaps the actual app gsyntapics still does
Also, I have two trackpads, one on a wireles keyboard. I wonder if that is why I don;t believe the settings are working on the wireless k/b.
hmmm, I'll have to look to see how to setup two trackpads.

johnny, I figured out my problem last night. I had sshd configured to only accept ssh key authentication and not password authentication. If i turn that off it works.
ah.. yes.. i was going to ask you about ssh next
mannyv, a near future (hopefully) version of ldm will be using libssh instead of trying to parse the ssh output manually..and we'll be able to show more useful error messages instead of just killing the X server and starting over
which makes it really difficult to figure out why it isn't working without reading /var/log/ldm.log

|14:01||hersonls has joined #ltsp|
johnny, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSP-Cluster/ - "Thin clients need 32-bit chroot. Build that one this way in root server."
i wonder why
probably not really..
i just wonder if the sentence is not worded correctly
that's what i was hoping ;)
i would guess that is the case, unless there are just no binaries built for amd64
(if there are binaries)
could writer want to stress that i386 clients needs i386 chroot ?
yes.. that's my guess
Lns, i would just try it
if so.. fix the wiki page
quote : " We need two x86_64/amd64 servers."
johnny, well i was just reading up on ltsp-cluster and how it worked..i do have a test server i should be playing around with it on thou
mm mm,, test servers are the best :P

anyone able to help me - i install ltsp-server-standalone got everythign working fine. I do a reboot of my machine and now my dhcp3-server and my apache server don't load automatically.....any suggestions?
well apache isn't related to ltsp
so.. that's unrelated
nothing we can help you with here
you should read logs
what happens when you manually try to start it
yeah everything comes up fine
(when i do /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart)
ltsp-standalone is the only package i've installed / changed in past fortnight....
just thought it might be related
|15:10||cliebow has quit IRC|
grspence__, make sure dhcp3-server is calling the right dhcpd.conf file (ltsp-server-standalone replaces it with /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.cof)
also make sure a symlink is in the runlevel you're starting at
lns - checked the dhcpd config - all fine
how do i check the symlink?
isn't there some runlevel editing gui thing you can use
/me doesn't know much about this on debian
gentoo makes it so much easier.. i forgot how to do it otherwise
i just use the gui on fedora
johnny, everything is easier when you're used to it ;)
grspence__, 'ls -l /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf'
you ahve to know what the numberes mean on ubuntu/fedora
on gentoo ti's just default or boot for most people
|15:18||Guerdal82_ has quit IRC|
johnny, /etc/inittab shows it
it's so lame
not sure about upstart and how it changes stuff
gentoo's inittab only has 3 entries or so
it comes with 3 runlevels, boot, default, nonetwork
greg@aspire:~$ ls -l /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 353 2010-05-01 19:45 /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
and nobody i know uses nonetwork..
for 99% of services users add.. it's always default
rc-update add <service> default
or just .. rc-update add <service>
no need to know any number crapola
so i just do rc-update add dhcp3-server default?
grspence__, .. no.. that's gentoo
i don't know how to do it on ubuntu.. because the stupid number thing and silly commands :)
Lns, gentoo's initsystem is superior to most init systems that are used on distros
it's probably even superior to upstart..
not sure if it's superior to systemd tho..
johnny, =p perspective my friend, its all perspective
no.. it's facts
speed, ease of use
gentoo kills it on both
oh.. and writing the scripts.. easy too
ok so quite bitchin about what distro is best... i'm sure they all have their niceties :D
on ubuntu any suggestions?!
grspence__, both fedora and ubuntu use upstart..
google it.. if Lns doesn't know
grspence__, it's basically the same as what johnny said on debian based systems,.. iirc "update-rc.d dhcp3-server defaults"
but i dont' see how it could have gotten removed in the first place
yeah i'm clueless why as well
grspence__, i don't even use gentoo anymore on my desktop machine.. it's just something i miss
i've been using fedora for almost 2 years now, so i do have some decent perspective
update-rc.d: warning: dhcp3-server stop runlevel arguments (0 1 6) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (1)
System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server already exist.
grspence__, what does yoru syslog say after a restart of the machine? There's got to be a clue there somewhere
i'll bbiab.. taco bell time =p
my guess is that you have a problem somewhere else .. perhaps your network isn't available when it needs to be..
