Hi,
04:49
please help, i have installed ltsp in Ubuntu Lucid. clients can boot from network, but there is no login form in client?
04:51
i ever installed ltsp in hardy and there is setting to remote logi like in server. but i can not find this setting in lucid
04:54
<alkisg>
So, what's that final thing that you see when the cilents boot? A text console? Or X (the login manager, ldm) without a login form?
04:56
<hari__>
after getting ip from dhcp server.. and only ubuntu lucid image
04:57
<alkisg>
Then you have some problem booting - it's not a login form problem
04:57
sudo gedit /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
04:57
Remove "quiet splash" from there, and reboot the client
04:58
<hari__>
thanks, i check it out..
04:59mil132 has quit IRC
05:00
<alkisg>
Notice whatever errors you get there, and post them here
05:01
<hari__>
thanks.. client restarting.. :-)
05:05
client can not boot, there message like trying to load pxelinux.cfg.default
05:05
and at the end like runaway loop modprobe ...
05:06
do i have to update sshkeys and image?
05:06
<alkisg>
Can you paste the last lines exactly? Or, take a photo?
05:06
No, it's not an ssh problem
05:06
<hari__>
please wait..
05:11
there error chroot:can not execute /usr/bin/test : exec format error
05:12
at the end of the line
05:12
[3.902691] request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c
05:12
<alkisg>
Maybe your chroot is amd64, and you're trying to boot an i386 client with it?
05:13
Is your Ubuntu 64bit?
05:13
<hari__>
I think the errors are still in the process and countinue show up..
05:13
:-)
05:13
yes i have installed ltsp in 64 bit
05:14
but
05:14
i installed sudo build client using i386 arch
05:15
previusly i build ltsp client in amd64.. then i rm-rf /opt/ltsp/amd64
05:15
then start build the client again in 1386 arch
05:15
<alkisg>
run this: grep filename /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf
05:15
What do you get?
05:16
<hari__>
:-)
05:16
I remove dhcp server from ltsp because i already have dhcp server..
05:16
may it cause the problem..
05:17
<alkisg>
OK, run this: ls /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64
05:17
If that directory is there, delete it.
05:17
Is it?
05:17
<hari__>
ok
05:17
yes there is amd64 dir
05:18
<alkisg>
OK, delete it and reboot the client. Now it might stop at a different point, saying that it cannot load vmlinuz.
05:18
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64
05:18
<hari__>
yes, i will start the client now.. thanks for your help
05:22
booting stop at the same error and the process still continue..
05:25
<alkisg>
So, the error is: "request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c" ?
05:25
<hari__>
yes.. it stop there..
05:25mil132 has joined #ltsp
05:25
<alkisg>
Hmmm how did you setup your dhcp server?
05:25
<hari__>
but after several minute the erro continue to like kernel..
05:26
i use ipcop as dhcp server
05:26
i set the ltsp's client with reserved/ fixed ip address
05:28
then there is setup for enter optional bootp pxe data : next server (ip's ltsp server)
05:28
then filename : ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0
05:28
<alkisg>
It looks ok then
05:29
<hari__>
then root-path : /opt/ltsp/i386
05:29
that's all..
05:29
<alkisg>
Did you remove dhcp3-server from the ltsp server?
05:29
<hari__>
yes..
05:29
<alkisg>
Or you have 2 dhcp servers now?
05:30
<hari__>
no, i have remove the dhcp-server in ltsp server
05:30
<alkisg>
OK, then I don't know what your problem might be. I think it's getting an 64 bit kernel, but I can't imagine how it gets it, since you just deleted the directory.
05:30
(you didn't just copy the amd64 dir to i386, right?)
05:31
I.e. /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386 was generated by ltsp-update-kernels, correct?
05:31
<hari__>
no, i started it all over again..
05:31
<alkisg>
OK, no idea what your problem might be then. :)
05:31
<hari__>
:-), thanks..
05:32
but /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf still there..
05:32
is it ok? i think i have remove dhcp-server in ltsp server
05:33ogra_cmpc has quit IRC
05:33
<muppis>
There's override in init -script, if it detects ltsp related dhcpd.conf.
05:34
<alkisg>
try: dpkg -S /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
05:34
This will tell you if it's a conffile. If not, just delete it.
05:35
<muppis>
Found in /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server http://ltsp.pastebin.com/tQkaZBTJ
05:36
<hari__>
after dpkg -S /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf there is dhcp3-server: /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
05:37
<muppis>
Sure thing, it belongs to package.
05:37
<hari__>
@muppis : still there is /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server
05:37
<muppis>
hari__, you need in ltsp -server. Or are you talking about client-image?
05:38
Oh, sorry. Missed few lines from you.
05:38
<hari__>
I have installed ltsp server, cliebnt boot well but there is no login form..
05:39
<alkisg>
hari__: then you still have dhcp3-server installed, you didn't remove it
05:39
<muppis>
Runned /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server stop ?
05:39
<alkisg>
So you do have 2 dhcp servers running
05:39
<hari__>
i installed ltsp in 64 bit server, but client in i386 arch
05:39
<muppis>
Builded i386 images ?
05:40
<hari__>
@alkisg : do i have to try again to remove dhcp-server in ltsp server?
05:40
<muppis>
yes
05:40
<alkisg>
hari__: run this: dpkg -l ltsp-server-standalone ltsp-server dhcp3-server
05:40
Paste the answer here
05:40
<hari__>
yes, wait please..

rc dhcp3-server 3.1.3-2ubuntu3 DHCP server for automatic IP address assignment
05:44
ii ltsp-server 5.2.1-0ubuntu9 Basic LTSP server environment
05:44
ii ltsp-server-standalone 5.2.1-0ubuntu9 Complete LTSP server environment
05:44
<alkisg>
OK, try those commands:
05:44
sudo apt-get install ltsp-server
05:44
sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove ltsp-server-standalone
05:44
Those will uninstall dhcp3-server without breaking your system
05:44
<hari__>
ok, try it.. thanks :-)
05:46
done, then booting the clients?
05:47
still have the same error while booting the client..
05:49
<alkisg>
(ah it was "rc", already removed - anyway you also got to remove ltsp-server-standalone which wasn't needed, so no harm dont)
05:49
OK, at this point again I'm out of ideas for you case. :)
05:50
<hari__>
i have purge ltsp-server-standalone, is it any problem with that?
05:51
<alkisg>
No, it's fine
05:51
<hari__>
ok thanks anyway :-)
05:51
<alkisg>
The difference between ltsp-server-standalone and ltsp-server, is that -standalone also has dhcp3-server
05:51
So since you don't need it, you did OK to remove it
05:52
<hari__>
when i used ltsp in hardy, there setting in server to activate remote login like ..
05:53
but i can not find this setting in lucid.. it should in system menu - admnistration- login window menu..
05:54
<alkisg>
That's for XDMCP, it wasn't needed in hardy nor in Lucid.
05:54
But your problem is not about login. The client doesn't boot.
05:54
<hari__>
oh.. :-)
05:54
<alkisg>
It has to boot first to be able to login
05:55
It's a dhcp / tftp / kernel problem or something like that... way before X starts to boot.
05:55
<hari__>
ok, i will try to install it again..
05:56
OK, alkisg. thanks.. see you again next time :-)
05:56
<alkisg>
Good luck
05:56
<hari__>
thanks, good luck too :-)

hi
10:52
I have 35 thin clints on a server, the Server is an i7 CPU, 8 gigs of RAM, Gig NIC and network. the Clients are 100 meg NIC
10:52
when the CLinets login they freeze either during boot up or in an application
10:52
I have looked @ the graphs and Mem CPU and NIC seem very quiet
10:52
Please let me know where I could start looking

re

<highvoltage>
hey Q-FUNK
13:11
<Q-FUNK>
stgraber: would it be possible to make the ubuntu port of LTSP to use debian-stable to build its chroot, so as to circunvent the disappearance of pre-686 support starting with maverick?
13:11
highvoltage: hiya! :)
13:11
oh, JC
13:12
highvoltage: actually, what's your opinion on the above, since you're also on ubuntu?
13:13
<highvoltage>
Q-FUNK: well, there's probably a bunch of dependencies not available in debian, like rootless X for plymouth (or even plymouth itself) so I guess it would take quite some work
13:13
I guess if you'd really want to run a debian chroot you could just do so from debian
13:14
imho it's probably best to just use a lucid chroot on older thin clients
13:14
and backport ldm and other newer, nicer stuff as needed
13:14
but stgraber usually has way better ideas than me :)
13:17
<Q-FUNK>
lucid is also good, but it would only work for as long as lucid remains supported. in 3 years, we'll be back to square one.
13:18
<highvoltage>
in 3 years non-686 hardware will be even more outdated than they are now :)
13:20mil132 has joined #ltsp
13:20
<highvoltage>
well, pre-686, at least
13:21
Q-FUNK: what are you using? some AMD/geode hardware?
13:21
<Q-FUNK>
true, but offering longevity for thin clients deployments remains useful
13:21
yup
13:23
<Lns>
Q-FUNK: what do you mean pre686 support disappearing??
13:23
<leio>
not that you really need something less outdated for 2D thin clients...
13:23
<highvoltage>
Lns: ubuntu is dropping i586 for maverick
13:24
<Q-FUNK>
Lns: starting with maverick, ubuntu no longer ships kernels that support pre-686 hardware, plus their libc6 is compiled with 686 optimization.
13:24
<Lns>
oh man
13:24
<Q-FUNK>
indeed.
13:24
they followed Fedora on that one
13:24The_Code has quit IRC
13:25
<Q-FUNK>
except that Fedora made an exception for Geode and merged a few patches for the kernel and for libc6 that allow 686 to work on geode too.
13:25
<highvoltage>
in 4-6 years or so it will probably be 32 bit that gets dropped then it will be a similar problem
13:25
<leio>
emulating a no-op in CPU exception fallback code must be fun.
13:25
<Lns>
Ubuntu seems to be strongly aimed at stand-alone, modern desktops only.
13:26
Can't get much more opposite from your parent distro, the universal operating system...heh!
13:26
<Q-FUNK>
leio: someone did it, but LKML refused to merge it because it's not a generic fix for more general problems.
13:27
<leio>
Q-FUNK: NOPL emulation? That's like insane. Stuff assumes no-op is very very cheap, and then for geode it's a very very costly CPU exception
13:28
that makes it indeed basically outdated, by making it slower yet again
13:28
anyway, geode is i686
13:28
<Q-FUNK>
IIRC the patch was just a trap for NOPL to exit.

I have install 10.04 64 bit on an I7, 8 gig RAM,250 gig hdd (for OS) and 500 gig hdd( for swap and home dir) on a gig NIC and a gig lan
14:20
my client are 32 arch

there are 35 of them

all the graphs on the server show that there is no real traphic(RAM, CPU,LAN)

but all my thin clints are slow, some freeze on boot up others in apps. and when restarted hang
14:22
where could I start to look?
14:22
Please anyone
14:23
I have till friday to fix this then XP and 2003 will have to return

which would be sad

is there a way to get rid of the ubuntu boot screen so I can see where it is hanging?

dekelev: you create users on the ltsp server.
14:39
ltsp terminals simply connect to the ltsp server for everything (they have a minimal OS that is loaded, just to be able to connect to the server)

hey guys, i need to lock the idle timeout for my terminals screensaver/lock screen to 15 minutes for PCI compliance but it doesn't seem to be using the idle_delay value in gconf under /apps/gnome-screensaver
15:00
<Q-FUNK>
denisesball: compliance to what?
15:00ogra_cmpc has joined #ltsp
15:02
<alkisg>
atomic007za: what are your client specs? cpu, ram, network card speed?
15:02
<denisesball>
Q-FUNK: are you familiar with PCI compliance? they are rules and regulations you have to meet to be able to process credit cards
15:03
<Q-FUNK>
denisesball: ah, no I'm not. is there a URL where I can learn more? am I to assume that you intend on setting up thin clients as PoS?
15:04
<denisesball>
http://www.pcicomplianceguide.org/pcifaqs.php#1
15:04
it's just something i've been asked to make our sales terminals do
15:05
<alkisg>
denisesball: also check X_BLANKING in the lts.conf man page.
15:05
<Q-FUNK>
denisesball: interesting. it might actually be worth pointing to gnome-screensaver to use those default timeouts and why.
15:07
<denisesball>
alkisg: that is good, but i dont just want a blank screen, i need it locked. Q-FUNK: what do you mean use those default timeouts?
15:07Lns has quit IRC
15:07
<denisesball>
seems like the gconf setting i'm editing should be the right one, but it seems like the setting is stored somewhere else
15:08
<alkisg>
denisesball: for locking, check also /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/use_screensaver_settings
15:09
<denisesball>
alkisg: ok that looks closer. although it is honoring the setting i pick in the GUI, just not in gconf
15:09
so it more appears that the GUI isnt using gconf to store the setting
15:09
but maybe this will override that

alkisg: doesnt seem like that helped
15:11
<alkisg>
One easy way to discover which gconf keys are being used is to have sabayon running while using the GUI.
15:11
(another is to use diff, but sabayon is easier)
15:13
<denisesball>
i actually don't use sabayon. here's what i did. ran gnome-screensaver-preferences and dragged the slider to 25 minutes. opened gconf-editor and set /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_delay to one minute and just checked /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/use_screensaver_settings
15:13
<atomic007za>
alkisg: My client specs range from old PC Cel 2.4, 128 RAM to close to new
15:13
<denisesball>
but it doesnt seem to be honoring that 1 minute gconf setting
15:13
<alkisg>
atomic007za: do you have LDM_DIRECTX=false or true?
15:14
<atomic007za>
alkisg: sorry new @ this, where would I find that?
15:14
<alkisg>
!lts.conf
15:14
<ltspbot`>
alkisg: "lts.conf" :: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/lts.conf
15:14
<alkisg>
It's an lts.conf setting, if you didn't change it manually, then the default is false
15:14
<atomic007za>
then it is false
15:15
<alkisg>
If you set it to true, you get much better performance, at a security cost
15:15
<staffencasa>
anyone, is there a list of the TIMEZONE codes anywhere, I'm looking for sytanx
15:15
<atomic007za>
hmm, young kids. not to worried about security
15:15
will do it now
15:16
<alkisg>
staffencasa: TIMEZONE="${TIMEZONE:-Europe/Athens}"
15:16
TIMESERVER="${TIMESERVER:-91.189.94.4}"
15:16
Errr sorry
15:16
Without the ${} stuff
15:16
<atomic007za>
also running sabayon, some PC get conf others not
15:17
<staffencasa>
so pacific time usa would be?
15:17
<alkisg>

is nbd a good to run or is it better to downgrade to nfs
15:23
?
15:24
how would I stop a screen from appearing upside down?
15:25
once logged in
15:25
only on 1 client, all the rest appear normal
15:26
<alkisg>
atomic007za: it's caused by nvidia drivers on the server and intel card on the client
15:26
You can stop it by disabling compiz
15:26
!compiz
15:26
<ltspbot`>
alkisg: "compiz" :: if compiz is giving you problems, one way to disable it for all users is: sudo gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager metacity
15:27
<alkisg>
nbd is faster than nfs. Nfs is better when you need a lot of changes in the chroot - that's not usually the case unless you're developing something...
15:28
<wurzzero>
hi, i got the error: No response from server, restarting... i already run the ltsp-update-sshkeys and ltsp-update-image but the problems persists..and i make more tests.. ssh <user>@server in the client and it give me.... ssh: connect to host server port 22: connection refused
15:28
don't know what to do...any hint?
15:29
<alkisg>
distro/version?
15:29
<wurzzero>
ubuntu 10.04 i386
15:29
<alkisg>
Does "ssh user@localhost" work when you run it on the server?
15:30
<wurzzero>
i did't try it...one minute..
15:30
yes, works
15:30
<atomic007za>
IC, do I edit the lts.conf to fix it?
15:31
<alkisg>
wurzzero: and if you run ssh user@server-ip from another pc?
15:31
<wurzzero>
yes
15:31
works
15:31
<alkisg>
wurzzero: ok, put SCREEN_02=shell and SCREEN_07=ldm in lts.conf to get a local shell - did you already do that?
15:32
Then, if ssh user@server gives you connection refused, check /etc/hosts to see the server ip
15:32
<wurzzero>
yes
15:32
<alkisg>
or try ssh user@server-ip
15:32Kicer86 has quit IRC

atomic007za: if you're talking about the compiz command, that should be given in a terminal, not in lts.conf
15:34
<atomic007za>
alkisg: sorry was scrolling up the sceen, and only saw full reply when I went further down.
15:36
ok, and if I log into a PC and it logs me staight out again? would that be related?
15:37
to the compiz?
15:37
<wurzzero>
all right, i'll try and back in some minutes, tanks...
15:37
<alkisg>
It might be, compiz does have those symptoms but of course it's not the only problem with those symptoms

Iwish I could monitor whats going on in the class while in the chat room, as I have to go in tomorrow to check
15:38
to see if the changes have made any effect
15:39
cool, thanks
15:40
so slow boot ups, could that also be contributed tothe server ip not being in the host.conf
15:40
<alkisg>
You mean in lts.conf? No, not really.
15:40
How much slow?
15:40
<atomic007za>
very slow
15:41
like some freeze on bootup @ random
15:41
and when rebooted dont pick up the server
15:41
<alkisg>
Those sound like networking problems (dhcp, dns, slow network etc etc)
15:42
Are the clients gigabit?
15:42
<atomic007za>
no client are 100 but network is gigabit
15:43
when I had 9.04 pc were very fast
15:43
<alkisg>
Did you disable flow control? If not, then the network is actually 100mbps, not gigabit..
15:43
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FlowControl
15:46
<denisesball>
alkisg: think the answer to my question was to set /desktop/gnome/session/idle_delay and not /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_delay
15:47
<alkisg>
denisesball: nice - sabayon tells you the key so that you don't need to search it manually
15:48
<denisesball>
yeah i dont actually use sabayon, haven't needed to actually adjust the layout, just little things here and there
15:48
<alkisg>
(you can uninstall it afterwards...)
15:48Q-FUNK has left #ltsp
15:59
<atomic007za>
alkisg: Not sure how to get flowcontrol to work, but when looking at the network traffic there is maybe 13 kbits on it
16:00
<alkisg>
That's too low, if you play a video on 4-5 clients and see it over 100mbs (on the server), *then* you'll know it's working correctly
16:00
Otherwise it's 10 times slower than it can be.
16:01
flow control + ldm_directx are the most significant things for performancd
16:01
*e
16:01
<atomic007za>
I did change the NIC IP after I created the thin clients
16:02
you said it could be dns?
16:02
host.conf file only had 127.0.0.1 in
16:02
<alkisg>
Check those 2 first, flow control is probably the biggest problem you have
16:05
<atomic007za>
hmm, well set LDM_DIRECTX=true in the /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf, will try to see what happens in the morning
16:05
hopefully a better result than the last couple of attampts

alkisg: if I run ethtool eth1 i get: Speed: 1000Mb/s Duplex: Full
16:10
??
16:11
<alkisg>
It doesn't matter
16:11
<atomic007za>
damn
16:11
<alkisg>
If flow control is off, the server speed is still 1000 mbps,
16:11
but it can only send 100mbps as the clients tell it "I can't receive data faster, slow down"
16:11
*sorry, if it's on
16:12
If it's off, then the server sends to another client instead of slowing down
16:12
<atomic007za>
ic
16:13
<alkisg>
Put a video on 4-5 clients and run iftop on the server
16:13
If you see about 90mbps, it's on ==> bad performance
16:13
If you see anything over 100mbps, you're ok
16:18
<atomic007za>
cool will look in the morning, have a copy a beach boys video. ;-)

alkisg, one last question, can you run nbd images and nfs on the same box?
17:54alkisg has quit IRC
17:55
<sweetpi>
staffencasa: yes
17:56
i often run a few things nfs when testing, and nbd for production
18:09alkisg has joined #ltsp
18:10* alkisg uses an nbd partition for testing, much faster than switching from/to nfs...
18:11
<alkisg>
mount /dev/sda3 /opt/ltsp/i386 ==> ready to install things in the chroot, unmount ==> ready to be exported with inetd
18:16
<sweetpi>
hmm good idea. though you couldnt work on the chroot while clients are using it via nbd, correct?
18:17
<alkisg>
Correct
