00:04michael__ has joined #ltsp
00:05
<gecko__>
what will be the correct line in my dhcp.conf
00:05
filename "/tcos/pxelinux.0";
00:05
<sweetpi>
gecko__: option routers gatewayip; in your subnet block should take care of the gateway problem
00:05
<gecko__>
filename "/pxelinux.0";
00:06
<vagrantc>
i'm still interested in doing a tcos-like thing for LTSP ... it's definitely a valid use-case.
00:06
<sweetpi>
depends what your trying to boot :)
00:06
<gecko__>
jeje
00:06
<michael__>
ltsp-cluster-accountmanager keeps killing my nxloadbalancer sessions before they even really start... any thoughts?
00:06
<vagrantc>
requires more ram on the thin-clients, but they're much more stable once they're up and running.
00:07
<gecko__>
ok
00:07
I'm trying to boot the pxelinux.0
00:07
that is on my /var/lib/tftpboot
00:07
<sweetpi>
filename "/pxelinux.0"; if tftp is in secure mode
00:07
<gecko__>
but how can I call it from dhcp
00:08
ok
00:08
<sweetpi>
dhcp will send it
00:08
nm.. misread that
00:08
<gecko__>
but I still do not know how to put my tftp in secure mode
00:08
<sweetpi>
it should already be in secure mode
00:10
<gecko__>
now I got PXE-E11 ARP timeout
00:10
<sweetpi>
pastebin your dhcp conf
00:12
<gecko__>
http://pastebin.com/7ags8z3P
00:13
<sweetpi>
your tftp server is 192.168.0.254?
00:15
<gecko__>
mmm I do not know :(
00:16
<sweetpi>
you need to set next-server to the correct ip
00:16
<gecko__>
sorry I got it
00:16
I'm trying again
00:17
it suppose that it's my IP where have my dhcp running
00:17
it's that ok?
00:17
<sweetpi>
if thats the same machine tftp is running
00:18
<gecko__>
how can I get it?
00:18
<sweetpi>
ifconfig
00:20
<gecko__>
I want that 192.168.0.2 server by tftp
00:20
so I change it from next-server in dhcp.conf
00:20
but my client doesn't start
00:21
<sweetpi>
what error?
00:21
<gecko__>
I cannot get the TFTP erro
00:21
nothing
00:21
just TFTP do not appear
00:21
<sweetpi>
ok, tell me the ip of dhcp and tftp server
00:22
are they the same machine?
00:22
<gecko__>
192.168.0.2
00:22
yes
00:22
the same machine
00:22
<sweetpi>
option routers is wrong then
00:22
*sorry maybe
00:22
explain your network
00:23
<gecko__>
ok
00:23
I install tftp and dhcp in the same server and so tcos
00:23
on my laptop
00:24
so I use my eth1 so connect to internet that is my wireless and my eth0 that is my ethernet is where I connect the client
00:24
is that what you asking me?? ;)
00:25
<sweetpi>
yes
00:25
crazy setup :)
00:25
<gecko__>
jeje!! I'm doing probes to install it on my university jeje
00:25
and my "thin-client" is my desktop
00:26
<sweetpi>
gah.. lol you have forwarding setup
00:26
?
00:26
<gecko__>
;) that do not have nothing to thin but that what I use for now
00:27
no that I know I do not any forwarding
00:27
<sweetpi>
ok shouldnt matter anyway
00:27
ifconfig eth1 says 192.168.0.2?
00:31
<vagrantc>
sounds likely that there are more than one dhcp server?
00:31
<gecko__>
I will pastebin
00:31
<vagrantc>
and getting a response from another dhcp server...
00:32
<gecko__>
http://pastebin.com/6bUWucWm
00:32
<sweetpi>
could be
00:33
gecko__: what interface is wired?
00:33
<gecko__>
eth0
00:33
that is .2
00:34
and eth2 is the wireless :)
00:34
<sweetpi>
ok set option routers and next-server to 192.168.0.2
00:35
<gecko__>
ok
00:35
<sweetpi>
it wont be able to route but it should be able to connect
00:36
<gecko__>
it stays on the gateway IP
00:36
do not pass from it to TFTP
00:36
<sweetpi>
what do you mean?
00:37
<sean74>
hi all
00:37
i'm looking for guide for fat client local printer
00:37
usb
00:38
<gecko__>
yeah it never show nothing about TFTP
00:38
<sean74>
i can see the printer in lsusb
00:38
<sweetpi>
gecko__: put authoritative; at the top of your dhcp conf
00:38
<sean74>
do i need to install the driver in chroot
00:39
<sweetpi>
and get rid of shared network part
00:39
and in /etc/default/dhcp3-server put eth0 in INTERFACES
00:40
<gecko__>
so and the gateway? I return to .0.1??
00:40
<sweetpi>
then restart dhcpd
00:41
it should send it after you do that stuff
00:43
<gecko__>
DHCPDARGS=eth0; is this the line that you refers
00:43
or will be just INTERFACES="eth0" ????
00:43
<sweetpi>
hmm.. what distro?
00:43
<gecko__>
debian lenny
00:44
<sweetpi>
using dhcp3-server?
00:44
<gecko__>
yes
00:45
<sweetpi>
hmm i have INTERFACES in my default file, im running squeeze though
00:45
<gecko__>
/etc/default/dhcp3-server
00:45
yeah in this file I have eth0
00:45
<sweetpi>
it was already there?
00:45
<gecko__>
yes
00:45
<sweetpi>
ah ok
00:46
<gecko__>
all the time ;)
00:46
<sweetpi>
you made the changes to the dhcp conf like i said?
00:46
after, restart the dhcp3-server
00:46
<gecko__>
yes
00:47
I put the option routers to .0.2 and nexte-server too
00:47
<sweetpi>
s/nexte/next/
00:48
client should boot now, if not pastebin your dhcp conf again
00:48
<gecko__>
next-server 192.168.0.2;
00:48
ok
00:49
http://pastebin.com/kd80zVm3
00:49
<sweetpi>
what does client say now?
00:49
<gecko__>
the same that the last time and do not show TFTP
00:50
<michael__>
Anyone around who uses nxloadbalancer with ltsp-cluster?
00:50
<gecko__>
the last thing that I see is GATEWAY IP: 192.168.0.2
00:51
and before it I got CLIENT IP:192.168.0.11 MASK: 255.255.255.0 DHCP IP: 192,168.0.2
00:51
<michael__>
what is the IP of your DHCP server?
00:51
<gecko__>
the last is not a coma, it is a point
00:52
it's the same IP that my TFTP
00:52
<sweetpi>
gecko__: http://pastebin.com/vbeQGPpy
00:53
his dhcp and tftp server are 0.2
00:53
after you replace the config with that, restart dhcp3-server and try agai
00:54
<gecko__>
what that I have to ut on my domain-name??
00:54
my hostname? so will be gecko.local?
00:54
<sweetpi>
nothing, use it as is
00:55
i just changed it because it bugged me that you had a .com in there :)
00:55
<gecko__>
:)
00:56
I do the changes and rebooting client
00:56
and dhcp was restarted :)
00:56
of course :)
00:57
nothing yet
00:58
when we change the option routers and next-server IP is when I can get at least the TFTP ERROR
00:58
hmmmm
00:58
<sweetpi>
not working?
00:58
<gecko__>
no :(
00:58
<sweetpi>
pastebin tail -n 20 /var/log/syslog
00:59
<gecko__>
http://pastebin.com/3TaMKGk7
01:00
<sweetpi>
are those times correct?
01:01
(dont want to read old logs)
01:01
<gecko__>
yes
01:01
I'm from Mexico, that is my local hour
01:02
:)
01:02
<sweetpi>
ok so you get an ip and connect to tftp, but it looks like no file is being sent
01:02
<gecko__>
yes it seems
01:02
<sweetpi>
comment out the if blocks for filename
01:03
and just put filename "/pxelinux.0";
01:03
i dont see what that would fix though :p
01:03
im guessing now
01:04
<gecko__>
ok
01:06
now TFPT ERROR got
01:06
file not found
01:06
<sweetpi>
making progress :)
01:06
<gecko__>
at least I see TFTP ERROR jeje
01:07
<sweetpi>
ls -al /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.0
01:07
<gecko__>
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 jun 19 23:54 /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.0
01:08
<sweetpi>
i guess your not running in secure mode
01:08
change to filename "pxelinux.0";
01:09
or double check syslog for path error
01:09
<gecko__>
ok
01:10
<sweetpi>
much easier in the long run to enable secure mode though
01:11
i think just -s in your /etc/default/dhcp3-server options
01:12
sorry tftp not dhcp
01:13
<gecko__>
you are talking about my xinetd.d/tftp configuration?
01:14
http://pastebin.com/9be3xj1E
01:14
<sweetpi>
did you add the -s?
01:15
im running tftpd-hpa
01:15
<gecko__>
me too
01:15
where do I had the -s
01:16
<sweetpi>
you already have it in there
01:17
<gecko__>
any other idea?
01:17
<sweetpi>
just take / off of /pxelinux.0
01:17
restart dhcp3-server
01:18
or like i said, syslog should say why tftp couldnt find the file
01:19
<gecko__>
syslog do not show anything about tftp
01:19
and I already take off the /
01:20
<sweetpi>
grep "File not found" /var/log/syslog | tail
01:21
ah i have -vvv on my tftp options
01:21dobber_ has joined #ltsp
01:21
<sweetpi>
maybe it doesnt show on less verbose
01:22
<gecko__>
so where do I put -vvv ??
01:22
in xinetd.d/tftp?
01:22
<sweetpi>
yes
01:22
then restart xinetd
01:22
<gecko__>
in server or server_args?
01:23
<sweetpi>
you should have all kinds of info you never wanted to see then :)
01:23
server_args
01:24
<gecko__>
:)
01:26
with -vvv it's better :)
01:27
<sweetpi>
now maybe tail -f /var/log/syslog
01:27
and restart your client and watch
01:27
<gecko__>
I think we are close
01:27
I start to see thing more clear
01:28
<sweetpi>
yes, we just have to fix the path problem
01:28
<gecko__>
the file that now is procesing is pxelinux.0
01:28
yes
01:28
<sweetpi>
what errors now?
01:28
<gecko__>
but do not function so we have to try with the other file that is /tcos/linux-2.6.18-4-486.nbi
01:29
but that file does not exists
01:29
<sweetpi>
pxelinux.0 wont work?
01:29
<gecko__>
wich file I have to try instead?
01:29
no
01:29
<sweetpi>
how old is your desktop?
01:29
<gecko__>
is new
01:29
<sweetpi>
should work... look for errors in syslog
01:29
<gecko__>
well relative
01:30
its a phenom three core and the motherboard its a Gigabyte S-series
01:30
<sweetpi>
yes should work no problem
01:31
check what errors, you really want to use pxelinux imo
01:31
do you have pxelinux.cfg/default?
01:32
<gecko__>
yes I have it
01:32
I will try with it
01:32
<sweetpi>
no
01:32
<gecko__>
ok
01:33
:)
01:33
<sweetpi>
thats the menu resource for pxelinux
01:33
pastebin the syslog output from your client connecting
01:34sean74 has quit IRC
01:36
<gecko__>
http://pastebin.com/f1HEc5Pw
01:36
<sweetpi>
hmm... what does the client say?
01:36
<gecko__>
but seems that my machine just do not wanna work with that file
01:37
the last message is the GATEWAY IP: 192.168.0.2
01:38
and I supossed that I do not have to wait a lot of time to see a response
01:38
<sweetpi>
diff /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.0 /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0
01:39
<gecko__>
none difference
01:40
<sweetpi>
hmm..
01:41
so no errors on client or server
01:42
?
01:42
<gecko__>
seems no
01:43
<sweetpi>
just about the only difference between your setup and my home setup is that im not running from inetd
01:43
<gecko__>
so in standalone?
01:43
<sweetpi>
i wouldnt think that would change anything though
01:44
yes
01:44
ya.. i take that back.. i am running from inetd
01:46
<gecko__>
:)
01:46jhutchins_lt has quit IRC
01:47
<sweetpi>
well you could try booting the nbi image
01:48
im not sure why pxelinux wouldnt work with that new of a nic though
01:49
<gecko__>
yeah! that is what I 'm trying now :)
01:50rmcgougan has joined #ltsp
01:50
<sweetpi>
when your nic rom loads do you see anything about PXE?
01:50
<gecko__>
http://pastebin.com/rVNu9XA3
01:50

01:51
<sweetpi>

01:52
<sweetpi>
pastebin ls -la /var/lib/tftpboot/tcos
01:53
actually maybe take the leading / out of your dhcp conf
01:55
<gecko__>
ok
01:56
jeje I got another error with the linux***.nbi
01:56
PXE-E79 NBP is too big to fit in dree base memory
01:56
<sweetpi>
ha
01:57
wow... well.. give gpxe a try
01:58
something is crazy with your nic i think
01:59
have you ever been able to pxe boot anything?
02:00
<gecko__>
no really
02:00
but I had the same error in school
02:00

02:00
<sweetpi>

02:01
<gecko__>

<sweetpi>
cp /usr/lib/syslinux/gpxelinux.0 /var/lib/tftpboot/
02:02
filename "gpxelinux.0";
02:02
in dhcp conf
02:02
other than that i guess i could take a look at your config files again
02:03
<gecko__>
ok
02:03
yesss
02:03
jeje now I see the tcos screen
02:04
<sweetpi>

02:04
<gecko__>

02:04
<sweetpi>
vmlinuz
02:04

02:05
<gecko__>
and what happend if I copy the boot vmlinuz intead to use the Symlink?
02:06
<sweetpi>
oh thats right you have symlinks for it?
02:06
<gecko__>
yeah
02:06
<sweetpi>
you cant symlink outside of your tftpboot dir
02:06
<gecko__>

02:06
<sweetpi>

10:19
anyone can help why my local printer can't get connected?
10:19
i checked that the cups was not started
10:19
when try to run hp-setup, i got PPD error
10:41
<alkisg>
sean74: you need to start cups from a script
10:41
Something goes wrong and it isn't autostarted on the client

Create a file named /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp/start-cups
10:42
Put the following contents into it:
10:42
#!/bin/sh
10:42
/usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d cups start
10:43
Then, make it executable: sudo chmod +x /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp/start-cups
10:43
Finally, make it start automatically from lts.conf:
10:43
RCFILE_01=/etc/ltsp/start-cups
10:43
On the next reboot, the client will see the printer if you point cups to localhost.
10:44
<sean74>
do i need to rebuild the image?
10:44
<alkisg>
Yes
10:44
<sean74>
ok, will try now
10:45
the client cups should be started, right?
10:45
<alkisg>
It should be, but it isn't
10:45
That's what the script solves.
10:46
<sean74>
by the way, when i try to issue /etc/init.d/cups status from client. i have a /var/run/cups permission denied.
10:46
could this be the problem?
10:46
i already assign lpadmin to user group
10:46
<alkisg>
No. You're doing this as a user, not as root
10:46
If you do that as root, it'll work
10:46
<sean74>
oh ok
10:46
i'll try the start-cups now
10:49
which lts.conf? tftpboot? /opt/ltsp/i386/etc?
10:49
<alkisg>
/var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
10:49
[Default]
10:49
SCREEN_02=shell
10:49
SCREEN_07=ldm
10:49
RCFILE_01=/etc/ltsp/start-cups
10:52
<sean74>

alkisg: great, is working now. but when i go to system->administration->printing, it keeps connecting to the ltsp server
11:41
<alkisg>
sean74: but if you put localhost there, it does see the printer, right?
11:41
<sean74>
alkisg: when i try to print a pdf file from firefox, there was no printer. only shows custom
11:41
yup
11:42
<alkisg>
So, you are able to print - you just have to manually select "localhost" first?
11:43
<sean74>
alkisg: i can print the test page from printing, but in the firefox acrobat reader, there was no option in the print name. only shows custom
11:44
<alkisg>
sean74: that *after* changing to localhost? weird...
11:45
<sean74>
alkisg: yup, but when i create the printer under ltsp cups server. it appears but when i try to print it doesn't print. got error
11:45
alkisg: how to default to localhost, printer?
11:45
<alkisg>
I don't know that
11:46
<sean74>
alkisg: could it be user permission? i already add the user into lpadmin and lp
11:46
<alkisg>
No I think it would be a cups configuration problem, but I don't know the details.
11:48
<sean74>
alkisg: hmmm, see if i can find anything. will keep you posted.
11:48
alkisg: thank you. very much
