autogen.sh needs aclocal, should we build-depend on automake too?

hi alkisg :) just one more question... do you arrange students' login in "sets" so is easier to erase them when they are out of chool? i.e. at the beginning you set stu500-600 for first year of school, 601-700 second, 701-800 third, then next year you erase 701-800 and put new students there, next year you erase 601-700...
03:37
<alkisg>
markit: no
03:37
We just use groups for that
03:37
E.g. user01a1 belongs to the group a1
03:37
(==first grade, first class)
03:38
user01a2 to group a2, etc
03:38
So we can do stuff based on their groups (not primary, secondary groups)
03:38
<markit>
so then you navigate the user's that belong to a certain group and erase them... interesting
03:39
well, some will be "not promoted" so need to keep his account
03:39
<alkisg>
Right
03:40
So groups make this easier, while numbers make it harder
03:40
<markit>
thanks for the tips. Would love to have such guidelines online IN ENGLISH ;P
03:40
your experience is very valuable
03:40
<alkisg>
Unfortunately they don't apply to all schools
03:40
<markit>
but most of, probably
03:40
<alkisg>
It seems that ours are very similar, the way they're organized
03:40
No
03:40
<markit>
ah
03:41
<alkisg>
You're the first person that we have similarities :D
03:41
<markit>
lol, call me "brother"

<alkisg>
Yo bro :)

i just tried a newer nic (with etherboot 5.0.10 vs. 4.5.8) and I get the usual dots and "done", but then it goes no further.

<abeehc-_>
i'd forgotten this flash is't native
17:50
i hope it can actually work decently now
17:54
<Lns>
abeehc-_: from my very small testing so far, it's not too bad. ANd sound works, which is a plus from trying to get the 32-bit version working w/ltsp and pulseaudio. ugh. Never did figure that one out.
17:58
<abeehc-_>
i wish it weren't among the reqs for my ltsp deployment
17:59
if i'm not mistaken you were playing with pam-mount; did you get it to a point where you are happy?
17:59
i'm about to try and move over to gvfs-mount...in the gnome environment it seems more elegant
18:01
<Lns>
abeehc-_: i don't think that was me..
18:01
<abeehc-_>
my mistake
18:01
<Lns>
oh wait, yeah from yesterday?
18:02
<abeehc-_>
i was thinking even earlier
18:02
<Lns>
oh probably not me then
18:02
<abeehc-_>
yesterday made me think it was you
18:02
you seemed to be doing more than i need
18:02
pam_mount pisses me off though
18:02
hehe
18:03
<Lns>
yeah i remember it being really difficult to get seamless mounting of network cifs drives with individual user creds..
18:03
<abeehc-_>
yeah seems likewise adds to the challenge a bit, and pam mount doesn't get along with it too well
18:03
in any case gvfs-mount looks so much more elegant
