Got a small dilemma
|14:29||jhutchins_lt has joined #ltsp|
I've got an ubuntu 10.04 install which I then did a apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone, and I've added some local apps, configured lts.conf... however when it boots up it just launches and xterm on the ltsp server... where should I put a link for autostart
ubuntu 10.04 desktop? or server?
It was a server install....
then you need to install ubuntu-desktop
on the server
It does what I need it to, just trying autolaunch a localapp
then copy a screen scirpt
and modify that
Oh, I don't want the desktop, I'm simply using it as an alternative to my gpxe-iscsi setup
yes, there are ones that load ldm, ones that load rdesktop, etc
see the source
Ah yes, I did see a few references to rdesktop :) Cheers for that I'll go investigate now :)
Which app as a localapp? You don't need a desktop environment?
you won't be using the LOCAL_APPS setup at all JustGav
that's for running them in a desktop environment
just the screen script is enough
I've installed a media player under chroot...
And I can launch it with ltsp-localapps mplayer
might as well just run it directly on the client
Yeah, that's what I'm after....
screen script does that
I know it is a bit of a nasty way to use ltsp, but it is a little slicker than my gpxe-iscsi config
What are your client specs? Maybe fat clients would be a better option, those don't require a desktop on the server...
alkisg, with only a single app or 2 to run, why bother
i don't think he wants an entire desktop environment
alkish, I've installed it without a desktop on the server side, that bit is fine :)
I am using it as a fat client, used using ltsp's diskless setup :)
johnny, I just think it will be more straightforward, than trying to run an app as a user locally
rdesktop and the other screen scripts run as root
sure, but that may or may not matter
and it does too much
there's no fat client setup for a simple window manager
Of course if he wants to run it as root and have some server path mounted with sshfs, that would work too...
|14:41||mistik1 has quit IRC|
I've just spotted the kiosk script in screen.d ...
Can I get away with just copying that and editting it?
Won't you need to access server data from a user account?
How are you planning on logging in / mounting sshfs etc?
No, because all the media is shared via cifs
and the media database is help on a ms-sql server...
And you installed the samba client utilities etc on the chroot?
If you've taken care of that part, then sure, either the kiosk script or even the rdesktop script could be used as a start...
I know it is a slightly clunky way to do it... and it is cleaner just to roll my own setup which I've done perviously, but it had a quirk with having to load each client manually
(the kiosk creates a user, while the rdesktop runs as root)
If you don't mind running stuff on the TC as root, then the rdesktop script would be easier
Okay, script created, now for dumb-ass question, where do put the script or what file to need to edit to tell the local client to launch it?
You put it with the other scripts on /opt/ltsp..., then run ltsp-update-image, and finally edit lts.conf to tell the client to use it
Got it :)
No, there's no 00
vt1, vt2 etc
Starts from 1
But don't use 1, it's used for local logins
Use 07 instead
Ah okay, I'll try that and report back, cheers again :)

Aaarg, I was in the middle of ltsp-update-image and the power went off, now theres an empty images directory and running it again returns nothing and a new prompt. Do I have to do a full reinstall ?
it said something about "chroot: cannot run command `/usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels': No such file or directory "
ls -lha /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels
If you don't have that file, then your chroot is corrupted..
how do you un-corrupt it?
Depends on how corrupted it is. If all the disk is corrupted, then you even need to reinstall the server
If it's just the chroot, just delete it and rerun ltsp-build-client
|16:17||mikkel has quit IRC|
should be easy enough to just delete /opt/ltsp/* and re-run ... if you're whole server is borked, well ... you'll probably notice
Is there somewhere I could find something like a case study or white paper on successful LTSP projects? I'd like something that addresses cost savings
disk seems to be ok, what about just apt-get install --reinstall ltsp-server ?
vagrantc, yeah thought of that but thats a whole download / reinstall of all packages. On the connection its on its about 4 hours :-(
at least /opt/ltsp/i386 seems fully intact, I can chroot into it and run updates. Just ltsp-update-image that doesn't return properly and do its thing.
MornignSon: here's one for thin clients in general by fraunhover, it's the most official i've seen so far: http://it.umsicht.fraunhofer.de/TCecology/docs/TCecology2008_en.pdf
(not ltsp, but it should be about the same)
fluvvell: try chrooting to /opt/ltsp/i386 and running apt-get install --reinstall ltsp-client-core
thank you, i've found a lot from wyse about it but i was hoping for some details about successful ltsp installations. The link you gave me will help a lot though.
alkisg, thanks ... trying now.
|16:45||vagrantc has quit IRC|
alkisg, Yup, that did it! Its away laughing now- building the mksquashfs image. Very cool, thx.
its good to learn these things.
fluvvell: well, watch out for random crashes either on the server or the clients :)
Corrupted disks can be a pain :)
Ah, its locked up 57% of the way through. :-(
%$&^!! Locked up the server.
no! wait, theres hope.
a rerun fixed it.
