<muppis>
antilyman, in use. Why so?
05:02
<antilyman>
@muppis when booting the client hangs after "........done"
05:02
seems like it's a kernel panic as numlock stops working
05:03
but the client can be booted with lubuntu live cd
05:04
<muppis>
antilyman, remove quiet splash from /var/lib/tftboot/ltsp/<arch>/pxelinux.cfg/default so you can see reason for hang.
05:06
<antilyman>
muppis, I did it already but still don't have message, it still hangs after ".......................................done"
05:07
do I have to rebuild image after changing this file ?
05:08
<muppis>
No.
05:11litlebuda has quit IRC
05:11
<antilyman>
it seems like the client use the "nbi.img" then decompressing it, then hangs
05:13
<muppis>
Ok, try this: Comment out if -statement from /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf, except line filename " .../pxelinux.0";
05:13
<antilyman>
ok, gonne try
05:19mikkel has joined #ltsp
05:19
<antilyman>
it boots now, thank you, I thought this if statement was important (because it depends on clients card)
05:20
I still have problems with drm, nouveau but I'll try to fix it
05:20
(but if you have any advice to help me start searching...)
05:22
<muppis>
I'm sorry, but I have no idea.
05:25
<antilyman>
no problem, it boots now :) I was stuck at this boot problem, now that it's more X problem, i think I find out :) thanx again
05:27
<muppis>
No problem. :)

Hi muppis. :-) On monday you were helping me with a problem regarding ownership of the /home/<user>/ directory on thin clients... would you mind helping me a little bit more? ;-)
06:19
<muppis>
Sure.
06:19
<Hyperbyte>
This is the output of the 'mount' command on the ltsp client
06:19
http://secondary.recreatie-zorg.nl/jan/ltsp-mount-client.txt
06:20
The /home/jan/ directory shows with ownership nobody.nobody, but the 'jan' user -is- able to write to it without problems
06:21
Only some programs don't run because they complain about the /home/jan/ directory not owned by jan
06:21Zanchey has left #ltsp
06:22alkisg has joined #ltsp
06:22
<Hyperbyte>
Aaaand... the /home/ on the terminal server is mounted with NFSv4 from a file server. I'm also running NIS across the servers, it's all working fine so it seems to me.
06:22
But somehow the LTSP terminal's /home/jan/ dir is nobody.nobody.
06:23
<muppis>
Does server show correct owner and group?
06:27
<Hyperbyte>
Yessir.
06:28
Wait
06:28
It did.
06:28
It doesn't anymore.
06:28
Oh that's embarassing.
06:28
I checked it when I set up NFS and since then I didn't look at it again assuming it was still ok
06:29
Ok so then it's an NFS problem.
06:30pmatulis has joined #ltsp
06:30
<muppis>
If it shows something big number for both, you need idmapd running. Enable it from /etc/default/nfs-common on both.
06:32
<Hyperbyte>
It's running on both
06:32
Last time I had this it was an NFS protocol mismatch... server with NFSv3 and client with NFSv4
06:32
Now both server and client are running the same NFS version though
06:35
<muppis>
What distro you are using?
06:36
<Hyperbyte>
Fedora 13, x86_64
06:37
<muppis>
Sorry, no much experience from that, but try look out place where sshfs parameters are set.
06:38
<Hyperbyte>
Well, you know... since it's not an #ltsp problem I should probably head over to #fedora. :-)
06:38katsuwi has joined #ltsp
06:38
<Hyperbyte>
Lots of thanks though.
06:38
<alkisg>
sshfs over nfs4? cool :D though it makes a lot of roundtrips, why not use just nfs4?
06:39
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, I was actually wondering about that
06:39
alkisg, I thought it might make more sense to mount the entire /home/ directory on the thin clients over NFS
06:39
<alkisg>
You'd need to patch a couple of lines in some initscripts, but it should work otherwise..
06:39
<Hyperbyte>
Which scripts? :-)
06:39
<alkisg>
(don't know about fedora though, but for ubuntu it's exactly 2 lines that need to be changed)
06:40
<Hyperbyte>
Because that's the part where I got stuck with this idea.
06:40katsuwi has quit IRC
06:40
<alkisg>
Hmmm I can't look into the source code right now, if you're around in a couple of hours..
06:40
<Hyperbyte>
Sure, I'll stick around. :-)
06:40
Or if you could give me a hint on what I can search for, I could just do a grep on /etc/
06:41
<alkisg>
on chroot, /usr/share/ltsp, grep for NFS_HOME
06:41
*or /usr/share/initramfs-tools or whatever else (dracut?) fedora uses
06:41
(again in the chroot)
06:43
...and if it doesn't have that part of the ltsp code, you could search for sshfs, i.e. the line where it mounts the user dir
06:43
bbl
06:43
<Hyperbyte>
Thanks!
06:45
Seems to be in /usr/share/ldm/rc.d/X01-localapps on the chroot. :-)
06:46
<pmatulis>
alkisg: so i upgraded my rig to lucid and i'm able to launch a remote app manually but when i plug in '/usr/bin/remoteapps evince' in the (localapp) FF dialog it complains (does not exist essentially)
06:46
<alkisg>
You need that part commented out, and nfs mounted before that in some additional script
06:46
Again bbl :D

alkisg, not really working... I'm probably missing something crucial on the thin client that causes it to mount with 4294967294 permissions... I think I did everything right, started all the rpc stuff... anyway, just gonna stick with sshfs for now. :)

Hi Hyperbyte
07:15
<Hyperbyte>
Read your message on Bugzilla on you maintaining LTSP for Fedora. :)
07:15
How's that going?
07:15
<Uzzi>
http://pastebin.com/uvemme3w this is my config
07:17
what is the problem?
07:18
<Appiah>
ile not found means wrong path
07:18
file*
07:18
<muppis>
Uzzi, path in dhcpd.conf is pointing wrong place, refer to /var/lib/tftboot/
07:20
<Uzzi>
muppis: in /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf option root-path "/var/lib/tftboot/" ?
07:21
<muppis>
Uzzi, no, filename "/ltsp/pxelinux.0"; should be filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
07:23
<Uzzi>
option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386"; filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0"; filename "/ltsp/i386/nbi.img"; invoke-rc.d dhcp3-server restart ---> the same error muppis
07:28
<mgariepy>
good morning everybody
07:30
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: morning. did you say the other day that you have FF as localapp using remoteapps ok?
07:31
<mgariepy>
i managed to make it work correctly with chromium
07:32
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: ok
07:32
<mgariepy>
firefox do a lot of weirdness
07:32
i need to tests with ff4 tho
07:32
<vvinet>
good morning mgariepy
07:32
<mgariepy>
and i'm not sure i'll have time to do so before BTS-2010
07:32
<muppis>
Uzzi, tried to comment out whole if -statement except pxelinux.0 -line?
07:34
<Uzzi>
muppis: in dhcpd.conf?

Uzzi, tricky.
07:45
Uzzi, try locally access to tftp, can you obtain files from it.
07:45
<Uzzi>
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr now works!!!!! next-server was wrong
07:45
now the error is about nfs server
07:45
<muppis>
:D
07:46
<Uzzi>
rootserver and rootpath nfsmount: need a path
07:50alkisg has quit IRC

muppis, just as a conclusion... I fixed the nobody.nobody nfs4 problem... idmapd domains didn't match.
07:50
:)

<muppis>
Hyperbyte, good you got it working. :)
08:01
<alkisg>
pmatulis: there was a bug in the remoteapps launcher and it didn't process parameters correctly, so either manually update the related ltsp script or make a two-lines script named "launch-evince" that contains "ltsp-remoteapps evince" within it.
08:02
<Uzzi>
muppis: now works fine but very low!
08:04
<pmatulis>
alkisg: thanks. is there a bug on that? what change is needed to ltsp-remoteapps?
08:05
<alkisg>
I don't know if there was a bug, but it was fixed, you can search the launchpad tree for the exact lines changed
08:05
I don't use localapps/remoteapps so I didn't note down which commit it was in...
08:05
<muppis>
Uzzi, what you mean with low?
08:06
<Uzzi>
internet navigation not farst, but now i'll testing all

Hrm... have another weird issue.
08:09
In a local terminal, when I run pactl (to adjust the microphone volume of the thin client), it gives me an error "Operation not allowed"
08:09
When making a symlink from my home dir to a file in the temp dir
08:09
When I manually make the symlink it's not a problem though
08:10
http://secondary.recreatie-zorg.nl/jan/ltsp-symlinks.txt
08:11
<muppis>
pactl runs as different uid/gid?
08:12
Hyperbyte, try running with strace
08:12
<Hyperbyte>
Those are from the exact same terminal/session
08:12
<Uzzi>
muppis: authenticated mount request from 172.16.1.165:892 for /opt/ltsp/i386 (/opt/ltsp/i386) but my range is range 172.16.1.132 172.16.1.139; !!!!!!

Uzzi, are you sure there is no other dhcpd nor fixed IP's in network?
08:14

My network administrator tell me NO, but there is atest that i can do it?
08:15
<muppis>
With wireshark atleast.
08:16
But now I need to go. Bye for now.
08:17
<Hyperbyte>
muppis, the strace output is huge... working through it now
08:20
http://secondary.recreatie-zorg.nl/jan/ltsp-strace-pactl.txt
08:21
The error has also changed slightly. :S It now says 'invalid argument' while trying to stat /home/jan/.pulse/....somerandomfile

alkisg: tried your shell script idea for evince. it opens but the document does not load. do i need an argument? (using just '/usr/local/bin/ltsp-remoteapps evince')
09:21
<alkisg>
Yes
09:21
ltsp-remoteapps evince $1
09:21
<pmatulis>
ah right
09:21
<alkisg>
"$1" is better actually
09:25
<pmatulis>
alkisg: just slightly better: "Unable to open document - Error opening file: No such file or directory"
09:26
<alkisg>
Can that file be accessed from the localapp?
09:26
A sorry no, the server app?
09:26
...so ignore that... :)
09:27
You can temporarily replace /usr/bin/evince on the server with a shell script that does: echo "$@" >> /tmp/localapps.output
09:27
So you'll be able to see exactly what is passed to evince
09:28
<Uzzi>
I'm mounting local usb hd but my user cannot umount its, why?
09:29
<alkisg>
Uzzi: ltspfsd doesn't support unmounting, it flushes data every 2 seconds so you just wait 2 secs and then directly unplug any sticks/HDs
09:31
<pmatulis>
well i did a find on the client and the file is stored in /tmp (locally) so i don't see how the server app can access it
09:31
<Uzzi>
alkisg: but if i write 2gb How long i have to wait?
09:31
<alkisg>
2 secs after it finishes. Does your UI display the progress?
09:32
<Uzzi>
ok It's doungerous for usb fs?
09:32
<alkisg>
From what I've heard, nope. But I've never used ltspfs.
09:33
<Uzzi>
ok thanks alkisg
09:33

09:34
<pmatulis>
alkisg: any idea on my last comment?
09:37alkisg has quit IRC
09:38
<mgariepy>
pmatulis, maybe you can write a wrapper that copies the file to $USER home directory then open this file ?
09:39
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: possibly. but i'm giving up for now
09:40
<mgariepy>
you were trying to make firefox launch stuff ?
09:41
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: i did get it launch stuff, just that the target document could not be found/loaded
09:42
<mgariepy>
you made modification to /etc/mailcap or did you do something else?
09:43
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: wrote a one-line script that invokes 'ltsp-remoteapps evince $1'
09:44
<mgariepy>
pmatulis, and the link with firefox is made by ?
09:45
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: i suppose i could put a line before that one that copies the file (known to be stored in local /tmp) to ~user, and then replace $1 with that path
09:45mistik1 has joined #ltsp
09:46
<pmatulis>
mgariepy: would be easier if i could tell FF to put the doc there directly
09:46
mgariepy: that should be doable
09:48
<mgariepy>
yeah probably, taking a quick look into about:config and i didn't see any config for that.

Doesn't work. :(
09:54
I put LANG=nl_NL
09:55
<mgariepy>
fr_CA.UTF-8
09:55
this is working
09:55
nl_NL.UTF-8 perhaps
09:56
if the translation has been made.
09:58

nl_NL.UTF-8 doesn't work, neither does fr_CA.UTF-8

I just tried fi_FI, before fr_CA
10:05
I can make a Dutch translation if that's of interest to anyone by the way.
10:07
<alkisg>
Sure, why not, send it to the ltsp-developers list
10:07

Okay, I will.

Hyperbyte: no idea about fedora, but try cat /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/default/locale
10:11
<Hyperbyte>
Fedora doesn't use /etc/default that much
10:11
<mgariepy>
pmatulis, the firefox configuration is working for you ?
10:11
<Hyperbyte>
I confired the terminal to use Dutch locale though, the terminals on the thin client actually already use Dutch locale
10:11
*configured
10:12
Hm.... maybe the Dutch locale setting I configured in Fedora is overwriting the lts.conf one
10:12
Causing it to fall back to English.
10:14
Are the locale '.mo' files editable by me somehow?
10:15
<alkisg>
You can convert .mo to .po and edit it with poedit, or you can just get the upstream .po files from the source code
10:15
<Hyperbyte>
Okay, cool. :)
10:16
I'll have a look at it tomorrow.

Guys, i've installed LTSP 5 (5.2.4-r1) on Gentoo. After many fixes that i've applied, now i am at LDM login screen. When i login, the ldm restarts. This is the ldm.log: http://pastebin.com/C5V0df9t

good afternoon all....
10:37
got a q....
10:37
can you set up a multi lingual enviribnment with ltsp5.2?
10:37
environment*
10:37
in a way that someone can choose prefered language of the desktop
10:38dobber has quit IRC
10:38
<robb994>
i'd like a french and a dutch desktop because the school the ltsp server is going to be used is bi-lingual
10:39
<[GuS]>
Also tried connecting with sftp from tty console on the terminal and connects well to the server...

10:40
<Gadi>
robb994: I believe (American speaking here) that if you install the language support on the server, you should be able to choose the desktop language from the LDM login screen
10:41
robb994: the only thing is the username/password will be in just one language at the login
10:41Kyle__ has quit IRC

that's not a problem I think... :)

good evening all....
14:09
<Lns>
hi robb_
14:10
<robb_>
anyone can explain why a newly created standar user can't login to ltsp?.... with my own (root priveliges) account I have no problems
14:10
what do I need to change? does a user need certain rights?
14:10
<Lns>
robb_: nope..should "just work". have you been able to log in with that user to the server itself?
14:11
<robb_>
yup
14:11
<alkisg>
!compiz
14:11
<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
14:11
<Lns>
lol alkisg
14:11
<robb_>
I allso updated ssh-keys and image
14:11
<Lns>
would compiz actually prevent the user from logging in?
14:11cliebow has joined #ltsp
14:12
<alkisg>
It would accept the password and then crash X causing ldm to reappear
14:12
<abeehc>
compiz will eat your young
14:12
<alkisg>
It's the most common cause for 1 user logging in and another not
14:12
<cliebow>
jammcq: anything to know before bts?
14:12
<robb_>
I don't think I have compiz active....
14:12
<mgariepy>
i've seen compiz crashing X when the video card doesn't support dual screen with compiz and stuff.
14:13
<robb_>
and on the same terminal.. I can log in with my own account and not with the newly created account
14:14
so I'm a bit puzzled why
14:14
<mgariepy>
robb_, do you uses dual screens ?
14:14
<alkisg>
robb_: it's enabled by default, so if that's the problem, you need to disable it
14:14
<robb_>
no
14:14
no dual screens
14:15salomon_ has joined #ltsp
14:15
<robb_>
is there a console command to disable compiz?
14:15
<alkisg>
Actually I don't think that's exactly compiz but the default window manager, whatever that is... gnomewm? Replacing it with metacity works though
14:15
Yes, see above
14:15
<robb_>
gnome
14:15
<jammcq>
cliebow: HEY !!!!
14:16
<alkisg>
We need to file a bug for that, causes grief to many ltsp users :)
14:17
<robb_>
so I can edit in gconf-editor....??
14:17
<alkisg>
robb_: I wrote a command above, you can try that.
14:17
OK let me write it again
14:17
!compiz
14:17
<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
14:18
<mgariepy>
robb_, yes you can set is as mandatory with gconf-editor if you have root access
14:18
but the commands is quite easy to copy/paste too :)
14:18
<robb_>
done
14:19
I'll retry loggin in with new user
14:19
thnx so far
14:19
might be back later... ;)

Hi alkisg, I read that the LTSP has problem with OpenBox, which is the window manager that LXDE uses, do you think LTSP works fine with XFCE instead of LXDE?
14:21
<alkisg>
No idea, you can ask in the channel though, maybe other people know :)
14:21
<jammcq>
cliebow: yep everything looks good
14:21

Has anyone run into problems with Ubuntu and DBus lately in high user count environments?
14:47
<Appiah>
what kind of problems?
14:49komunista has quit IRC

<atkuepker>
Took months of digging, but we finally figured it out. Dbus was locking up after it hit the 1024 per-process file handle limit at around 50 users. Just wondering how widespread those same symptoms are within the LTSP fold.
14:50komunista has joined #ltsp
14:50
<atkuepker>
Once it locks up, no users can log in and existing application slowly become unusable. Very annoying and tough to diagnose since DBUS creating almost no usable logging.

atkuepker, did you try to boost it in /etc/security/limits.conf ?
15:00
# dbus-daemon --system needs more than the default 1024 open files allowed.

Yes, but /etc/init/dbus.conf is supposedly the correct workaround nowadays due to Upstart

Is there a way to set up 4 or 5 PCs to function as an LTSP server? I've read up on the cluster, and it looks like things are distributed across the cluster, such that if any server died, the whole thing would go down. I'm wondering if it would be possible to setup the ltsp servers sort of like RAID, where if one of machines died, the clients would just boot from another server.
15:09
<mgariepy>
atkuepker, adding the configuration to /etc/security/limits.conf works quite well too.

yes, it was 1) the user didn't have write access to that directory or 2) they weren't putting a file extension on it and OO3.1 was complaing or 3) we never did figure it out and remove and re-installed OO.org completely which fixed it.
