Yey! Teacher screen broadcasting works fine on 64Mb clients too! iTalc, RIP :)
02:12
<Appiah>
which tool?
02:13
<alkisg>
My own, sch-scripts...
02:14
Behind the gui it's just using x11vnc + xvnc4viewer, though, so it's possible to script it even without my tool...
02:14
(works 10 times faster than iTalc too - I'm not using encryption though as I don't want it)

what's sch?
02:24
<alkisg>
short for "school"
02:24
<ogra>
damned, we all need to learn greek now !
02:25
<alkisg>
:P nah just a developer with a little time in his hands is needed, to generalize it
02:25
<ogra>
:)
02:25
<alkisg>
Those reverse shell connections make a very good network backend (the server is in python/twisted)
02:26
There are notifications and reverse shell for every user or client that is connected to the server..
02:27
..with just 1 mb of ram needed on each client, so that the minimum requirements are kept at 64MB ram
02:28
<Appiah>
aah
02:29
did you get your hands on a 64MB client? or did you figure out the kernel parameters?
02:29
<alkisg>
Appiah: what do you mean? I'm currently in a lab of 64mb clients...

<alkisg>
sorry, had to change my ip
02:32
(i lost any answers)
02:32
<Appiah>
well I remeber some days ago you were trying limit a client to 64mb
02:32
with kernel parameters
02:32
but you ended up with crashes?
02:32
<alkisg>
Ah no, these are real clients
02:33
I couldn't make it work with mem=xxx and memmap=xxx
02:33
<Appiah>
oh
02:33
well your solution looks neat, is it something we get to try out soon? :)
02:34
<alkisg>
Nope, I've started my phd so I won't have time to make an upstream project out of it for the next 2 years
02:34
If some developer is interested though, I'm more than willing to help...
02:35
After 2 years, sure, I'll do it myself...
02:36
<Appiah>
Oh ok
02:36
if I only knew how to write code...

hello, know anyone current status of LTSP, and particularly its status in Fedora? I read sometime in february at stgraber.org about 5.2. But on Fedora sites it appears as in past 0.5 year there isnt any progres and month ago released Fedora 13 contain ltsp 5.1.95 (which furthermore isn't buildable on it).
06:06* alkisg has never used Fedora but thinks that Warren stopped working on LTSP for quite some time now... so maybe a new Fedora LTSP maintainer should pick it up.

it sounds likely. I found last Warrens contribution to mailing list last year in august.

<frantah>
But, when www.lstp.org not contain ltsp 5x code, is there some source of actual stable or development code? I should like try it in Fedora 13...
06:38
<alkisg>
!ltsp-source
06:38
<ltspbot>
alkisg: "ltsp-source" :: at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/files
06:40
<alkisg>
If you have bazaar install, you can get the code by: bzr branch lp:ltsp-trunk

<rickogden>
hi, can anyone here explain to me what the nbd-server is doing with the LTSP thin client?
07:22
<frantah>
alkisg: I just install bzr-2.1.1. But cmd "bzr branch lp:ltsp-trunk" return error "bzr: ERROR: Invalid url supplied to transport: "lp:ltsp-trunk": No such project: ltsp-trunk". What i'm doing bad?
07:22
<alkisg>
rickogden: it's providing the network disk from which the client boots
07:22
frantah: I'm not sure, maybe lp: is an ubuntu extension for bzr which isn't included by default on fedora? You'll have to google it a bit.
07:23
<rickogden>
alkisg: I keep on getting the error Failed to connect to NBD server... should there be something running on the Ubuntu TS which I can check?
07:23
<alkisg>
rickogden: either the nbd server isn't running, or your dhcp server is pointing your client to the wrong server
07:24
Is that ubuntu? Which version?
07:24
<rickogden>
10.04
07:24
<alkisg>
Ok, run some checks:
07:24
grep nbd /etc/inetd.conf
07:24
<rickogden>
I've specified it in the pxelinux.cfg/default
07:25
<alkisg>
Let's take all the routine checks, it'll be faster. Give the command above on your server, then paste the output here.
07:25
<rickogden>
9572 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/
07:25

2002 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/nbdrootd
07:25
/ltsp/images/i386.img
07:26
I should tell you at this point, I'm not using standard LTSP setup... I'm using gpxe
07:26
<alkisg>
Ah, 2002. Weird port. OK, next: sudo netstat -nap | grep :2002
07:26
It doesn't matter, gpxe is the same as pxe.

07:27gnunux has joined #ltsp
07:27
<alkisg>
OK, next: grep nbd /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
07:28
<rickogden>
nbdport=2002
07:28
I've also specified the nbdroot as well
07:28
<alkisg>
Wait, is that the whole line?
07:28
nbdport=2002?
07:29
<rickogden>
append ro initrd=initrd.img quiet splash nbdport=2002 nbdroot=146.87.119.32
07:29
<alkisg>
OK. Next, ls -l /ltsp/images/i386.img
07:29
(I guess that's "file not found")
07:30
<rickogden>
correct
07:30
the dir /ltsp doesn't exist
07:30
<alkisg>
Did you paste the line above or did you mistype it? This one:
07:30
(03:30:26 μμ) rickogden: 2002 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/nbdrootd
07:30
(03:30:26 μμ) rickogden: /ltsp/images/i386.img
07:30
There's an "/opt" missing there.
07:31
<rickogden>
yes it's in /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img
07:32
<alkisg>
But is /etc/inetd.conf correct? Or is it pointing to the wrong file?
07:32
<rickogden>
ahh, I see
07:33
yes, it's pointing to the right directory in inetd.conf
07:33
<dobber_>
i think his irc client cuts some letters
07:33
<rickogden>
I just don't think IRC liked the fact the line started with /
07:34* alkisg thinks it was a copy/paste error :)
07:34
<alkisg>
Ah, maybe that too
07:34
OK, moving on. In the client, do you get a busybox shell?
07:34
<rickogden>
alkisg: yes
07:35
<alkisg>
Try this in that shell: nbd-client 146.87.119.32 2002 /dev/nbd0
07:36
<rickogden>
it connects, then comes up with "unknwon partition table"
07:36
<alkisg>
Is your client too fast? E.g. core 2 duo or something?
07:36
<rickogden>
haha... yes
07:36
3ghz core2duo, 4gb RAM
07:36
<alkisg>
Right... ok, a last check. In pxelinux.cfg/default, put a break=mount right next to "quiet splash"
07:36
Reboot the client. You'll get a busybox shell again.
07:37
Wait 5 seconds. Then press ctrl+d (=exit from the shell). If I'm right, the client should boot normally.

ok, np
07:43
thanks for your help anyway
07:43
<frantah>
i found form with slashes: "bzr branch lp:///ltsp-trunk". But it give other error: "bzr: ERROR: Invalid url supplied to transport: "lp:///ltsp-trunk": No such project: ltsp-trunk". And cmd "bzr branch lp:///ltsp" return: "bzr: ERROR: Invalid url supplied to transport: "lp:///ltsp": LTSP has no default branch.". Any idea?
07:43
<alkisg>
rickogden: did you paste that file?
07:44
<rickogden>
alkisg: not yet, just ssh'ing into the server
07:46
http://ltsp.pastebin.com/tFDC51Vu
07:46
oops, nbdport is there twice
07:47
<alkisg>
And also there's something missing 146.87.:255.255.255.0
07:48
Anyway, be back in 2 hours. Bye.
07:48
<rickogden>
that's less messing up, it's there in the file
07:48

Good morning! I know most of you guys idle in ed/ubuntu, but I'm not getting any assistance there. Does anyone know why a user setup with sabayon (User Profile Editor) works as a client, then quits working and returns to the fully default gnome? Seems to happen if I change the session at login, but also does it on its own.
09:09Selveste1 has quit IRC
09:13alkisg has joined #ltsp
09:20
<alkisg>
rickogden: did you fix it?
09:21
<rickogden>
alkisg: unfortunately not, I feel that I'm closer to diagnosing the problem
09:22
<alkisg>
Can you post your current pxelinux.cfg/default?
09:22
<rickogden>
the problem is I have a very non-standard set up
09:22
<alkisg>
Nah, it's what I use every day :)
09:23
<rickogden>
alkisg: I've stopped using the pxelinux.cfg file for now, and I'm trying to load the kermel/ramdisk manually using gpxe
09:23
but it's coming up with the same error
09:23
<alkisg>
OK, that will just take much more typing.
09:24
rickogden: it's probably the error with the recent CPU, so don't waste too much time trying kernel parameters
09:24
<rickogden>
http://demeter.cs.salford.ac.uk/boot/boot.php <-- that's my current boot file
09:24
I do a dhcp net0, then chain to that
09:25
<alkisg>
You can also put dhcp net0 into that script
09:25
Try joining nbdroot and port to: nbdroot=146.87.119.32:2002
09:25
<rickogden>
it needs an IP/default gateway before it can obtain that over HTTP
09:25
<alkisg>
#!gpxe
09:25
dhcp net0
09:25
set next-server 1.2.3.4
09:25
kernel ...
09:26
Anyway, no problem there - try joining the nbdroot/port
09:26
<rickogden>
will do

<alkisg>
(remember that with break=mount, it *won't* boot - it'll give you a busybox shell before trying to mount nbd...)
09:29
(so if you wait 5 seconds there, and then press ctrl+d, then it should boot)
09:30
<rickogden>
alkisg: you're a genius! I can't login for some reason, but I have a gui boot screen
09:30
<alkisg>
Try ltsp-update-sshkeys and ltsp-update-image
09:30cyberorg has joined #ltsp
09:31
<alkisg>
(what fixed it? the ctrl+d or the nbdroot joining?)
09:31
<rickogden>
nbdroot
09:32
<alkisg>
Hrm you should file a bug about that
09:33
<rickogden>
alkisg: good point, also I might respond to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1473451
09:34
<alkisg>
Most developers don't watch the forums, though, so that (even if it helps some people) won't solve the problem upstream.
09:35
Btw tell them that "dpkg-reconfigure nbd-server" is *not needed* :D
09:36
<rickogden>
alkisg: I've already been through
09:36
that
09:36
also, if I take out the break, it stops working again
09:36
is there a way of getting it to wait?
09:36
<alkisg>
That's a second bug you should file :)
09:37
File it in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ltsp: "udhcp is in init-premount while it should be in nfs-premount". For details, see `man initramfs-tools`.
09:38
If you're willing to test some stuff, I may try to come up with some solutions. But I can't test myself because I don't have a client fast enough to reproduce the problem/.
09:39
<rickogden>
alkisg: sure!
09:39* Gadi find himself adding lots of "while foo does not work, try again bec bar is not ready yet" loops these days
09:39
<Gadi>
:)
09:39
<alkisg>
Heh
09:42
<rickogden>
hmm... still can't login
09:42
I presume it should just use the same logins you can locally?
09:42
<alkisg>
Did you update the ssh keys and the image? Yes, use the same usernames/passwords that you use for server logins
09:42
<rickogden>
(I've never gotten this far before)
09:42
I did update the ssh keys and image
09:43
<alkisg>
Is your server on the same subnet?
09:43
<rickogden>
alkisg: no
09:43
<alkisg>
Can you post your current lts.conf, if you have one?
09:44
<rickogden>
if I have one, where will it be? It doesn't seem to be in /etc or /etc/ltsp?
09:44
<alkisg>
/var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
09:44
<rickogden>
I don't seem to have one
09:44
<alkisg>
OK, create one, with the following contents:
09:44
[Default]
09:44
SCREEN_02=shell
09:44
SCREEN_07=ldm
09:45
Reboot the client. Switch to vt2 with alt+ctrl+f2
09:45
Then type the following command: ssh user@server
09:45
Replace "user" with an existing username. *Don't* replace the word "server".
09:45
See if you can login, and if you're prompted for invalid keys or anything.
09:49
<rickogden>
vt2 is a blank screen with a flashing cursor that doesn't move when I type
09:50
<alkisg>
Do you have an i386 chroot?
09:50
<rickogden>
vt1 is there
09:50
<alkisg>
Or an an amd64?
09:50
<rickogden>
but it requires a login (which isn't working)
09:50
I'm using i386
09:50
<alkisg>
On the server too?
09:51
<rickogden>
the server is arch64
09:51
but when I built the image I did --arch i386
09:51
for this reason
09:51
<alkisg>
And you booted with that gpxe script, right?
09:51
<rickogden>
yes
09:52
<alkisg>
Can you paste your lts.conf?
09:52
(maybe some typo...)
09:52
<rickogden>
[Default]
09:52
SCREEN_02=shell
09:52
SCREEN_07=ldm
09:53
I don't need to rebuild the image do I?
09:56
<alkisg>
Νοπε
09:56
<rickogden>
alkisg: any ideas?
09:56
<alkisg>
Nope
09:57
It seems that it isn't reading lts.conf, while it should.
09:57
<rickogden>
do I need to specify in my gpxe script?
09:57
<alkisg>
First, try creating a symlink to lts.conf in /var/lib/tftpboot/lts.conf
09:57
If that doesn't work, unlock the chroot root account to get a shell in vt1
09:58
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/UnlockChrootRootAcct
09:59
<rickogden>
ahh! There is already a symlink called lts.conf in tftpboot
10:00otavio has quit IRC
10:00
<rickogden>
it would probably help if users other than root could read the lts.conf wouldn't it... *woops*
10:02
<alkisg>
Heh - how did that happen?

<rickogden>
alkisg: are you sure it's getting the file, since I've not specified for it to be retrieved
10:08
<alkisg>
rickogden: the clients automatically try to download lts.conf with tftp from that location
10:09
(verify that the client do have tftp access, if you're using any weird tftp setup)
10:09
<rickogden>
even when I'm specifying the kernel and initrd manually
10:09
<alkisg>
Yes, if no "boot filename" dhcp directive is used, then the default path "/ltsp/i386/lts.conf" is used instead.
10:09
*is received..
10:09
<rickogden>
they do as they've already downloaded the vmlinuz and initrd
10:10
<alkisg>
OK, but you could e.g. use a different server for vmlinuz.
10:10
(you do have a weird setup, don't deny it :P :D)
10:10
<rickogden>
I do!
10:10
the problem is I don't run the network, that's run by the central IT department
10:11
and they won't alter their DHCP
10:11
we've just been using thinstation+NX for linux so far
10:12
<alkisg>
You can use a proxydhcp server for that
10:12
That's what I use in my schools
10:12
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
10:12
It works with gpxe, but it even works without it as well.
10:13
<rickogden>
that would require some dhcp servers to be physically on those VLANs won't it?
10:13
<alkisg>
But anyway the problem isn't there, you passed that stage
10:13
Yes, any dhcp server would do though.
10:13
Do all clients there have static ips?
10:13
<rickogden>
there aren't any on the vlan... it's all routed through the switches
10:14
no, the IPs are dynamic
10:14
<alkisg>
I don't get it
10:14
You have dhcp relays?
10:14
Anyway that's not the problem
10:15
<rickogden>
unfortunately, networking isn't my area, so I don't know how they do it exactly

rickogden: is the symlink to lts.conf a relative symlink?
10:21
<rickogden>
Gadi: yes
10:22
<Gadi>
(it should look like: lts.conf -> i386/lts.conf and NOT like: lts.conf -> /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
10:22
<rickogden>
Gadi: it does
10:22
<Gadi>
ok
10:22* Gadi crawls back into corner
10:22
<rickogden>
lts.conf -> ltsp/i386/lts.conf
10:22
hehe, worth checking!
10:26
hmm... when I try to login, it comes up briefly with a black screen before going back to the ldm
10:26dobber_ has quit IRC
10:26
<rickogden>
on that screen it said ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):eth0: link is not ready

Did you manage to login as root on vt1?
10:32
<rickogden>
for some reason, no
10:34
<alkisg>
sudo mount -o loop /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img /mnt
10:34
<rickogden>
still keeps coming up as login incorrect
10:34
<alkisg>
sudo chroot /mnt
10:34
passwd
10:35
See if the existing password there is the one you provided.
10:35
(and then exit and unmount)
10:36
<rickogden>
it doesn't have a password it seems
10:38
<alkisg>
Ah root isn't asked for an existing password... my bad
10:39
`getent shadow root` then
10:39
If you get something like "root:!*:14711:0:99999:7:::", then no password is set
10:40
<rickogden>
got it... I just rebuilt the image (again) and worked this time
10:41komunista has joined #ltsp
10:42* rickogden starts browsing the logs
10:45
<alkisg>
Try that "ssh user@server" line I wrote above...
10:46
<rickogden>
alkisg: that works
10:46
<alkisg>
Without *any* warnings at all?
10:46
<rickogden>
none as far as I noticed
10:46
<alkisg>
OK, switch to vt7 and try from ldm
10:47
With the same user/pass
10:47Selveste1 has joined #ltsp
10:47
<rickogden>
nope
10:48
if I type in a user that doesn't exist it says "No response from server, restarting"
10:48
if I type in something correct, it just restarts the ldm
10:50
<alkisg>
Ah, different matter then
10:50
It might be a compiz problem
10:50
!compiz

10:50
<alkisg>
If it isn't compiz, check that user's ~/.xsession-errors on the server.
10:51
(that compiz disabling line is ran on the server)
10:53
<rickogden>
there are errors in xsession-errors

You do have a DE installed on the server, right?
10:55
<rickogden>
DE?
10:55
oh, desktop environment
10:55
yes
10:55
works perfectly with NX
10:56
<alkisg>
Which one? gnome? kde?
10:57
<rickogden>
gnome
10:57
it's Ubuntu Desktop x64, but using a mixture of /etc/passwd and ldap authentication
11:02
<alkisg>
Mixture? Hmm... I wonder if that could affect the /etc/passwd reading for localapps.
11:07
<rickogden>
hmm... not sure
11:07
not had any problems until now
11:08
<alkisg>
With previous ltsp versions?
11:09
<abeehc_>
channel log page seems behind
11:12
<alkisg>
Yeah nubae's bot is down
11:13
<rickogden>

11:13
and local
11:14
eugh. anyway, my brain has officially given up
11:14
home time me thinks
11:14
<alkisg>
rickogden: did that lts.conf get transferred finally?
11:14
<rickogden>
alkisg: thanks for all your help, and I'll definitely be up for doing testing for you
11:14
I'm not sure, I'll have a look when I boot it up tomorrow
11:14
<alkisg>
OK, bye bye
11:15

I have setup fat clients, and most everything works well, but about 30% of the time, the fat client wont fully boot, it gets to the ubuntu splash screen then just stalls out. Any ideas on where I should start troubleshooting?
13:25vagrantc has joined #ltsp
13:43
<johnny>
LedHed, disable quiet and splash in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
13:44
as in.. remove them from that file
13:44
then you'll be able to see the error messages

have ltsp server and client in Virtualbox 3.2; client starts, get gnome logon screen, but cannot logon with a user that has ssh access. Ideas?
14:18
<johnny>
you're not already logged into that user already are you?
14:20

and check .xsessions
14:24

no -- get message "Verifying password", nothing happens, and then client restarts

of ubuntu server distro?
14:53
or regular ubuntu?

<sharles>
so, for a dedicated ltsp server serving up gnome to clients, it makes sense to install the desktop?
16:38
<alkisg>
It won't work at all without a desktop environment on the server
16:38
That's why the alternate CD is proposed, not the server CD.

<johnny>
alkisg, except in the case of fat clients
16:41
?
16:41
<LedHed>
when doing ltsp-update-kernels do I have to specify the architecture (I have i386 clients and server is amd64)
16:42
<alkisg>
Well one could also use the alternate cd for fat clients, but it won't make any sense to press "f4 - install an ltsp server". He'd better just install normally - either with the desktop iso, or even with the alternate iso
16:42
LedHed, no, all kernels are updated.
16:42
<LedHed>
k thanks
16:43
hopefully disabling nbd-proxy will work.

Anyone have any idea why I cant start a second ltsp client? I used Ubuntu LTSP install and the first client boots fine. However the second client stops at loading vmlinuz. If I shut down the first client the second client boots fine.

that's weird.. never heard of it
