learn compiz as the default window manager in gnome is gnome-wm, which automatically chooses compiz if it thinks that the card supports it. Compiz is causing login problems to some clients. To disable it, see !disable_compiz. To restore it, see !restore_compiz

!learn quiet-splash as to disable the splash screen in Ubuntu, in order to see any boot error messages, run `sudo gedit /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default` and remove "quiet splash".

salomon_: I'm just doing some bot-database maintainance, not related to your problem
00:36
<salomon_>
Oh, I see, sorry :)
00:36
<alkisg>
salomon_: Your problem might be NFS related, I've seen the message you pasted with networking issues.
00:37
But I don't know enough about NFS to help
00:37
<salomon_>
But the strange thing is that another client works fine
00:37
they are diferent hardware
00:37
<alkisg>
Well, bad cabling or network module could explain it, among others.
00:38
I wish I knew more about NFS troubleshooting, I'd solve some problems of mine with it then :)
00:38
<salomon_>
jeje, I see
00:39
See you later alkisg, thanks for your help, I'll keep trying and look for NFS info to see if that's related
00:39
<alkisg>
Good luck
00:39
<salomon_>
Thanks

Hi alkisg
03:41
I solved the puzzle
03:42
I used the alternative disk for 9.10 to build client on 10.10 ....temp for now.
03:42
<alkisg>
Heh, no fast internet connection to download the 10.10 alternate iso?
03:42
<DraZoro>
ltsp-build-client --dist karmic --mirror file:///media/disk ...and it is building
03:43
alkisg : Yep you got it right ...but I will get from one of my friends later this week that 10.10
03:43
<alkisg>
well done :)
03:44
<DraZoro>
Thanks ...the alternative thing was a big puzzle
03:45
After you mentioned it ...I got a lot of ideas especially after reading man for ltsp-build-client once more.
03:48
<alkisg>
I think one good way is to use --mount-package-cache and to have the .debs copied in /var/cache/apt/archives - this way no cd is needed and it can even be used for fat clients that need more packages
03:48
<DraZoro>
alkisg : I was just sending back a feedback thanks once again....mirror really works

<sbalneav>
I'm hoping it's turning around.
12:02
Yeah. Well, these two weeks will help in my recovery

12:03
alkisg: Hey ho!
12:03
<alkisg>
Hey man, we've been worried :)

<sbalneav>
Yeah, well, between job problems, health problems, and general tiredness, it's been stupid.
12:04
<alkisg>
Hope you charged your batteries - /me needs to do the same...
12:04
<sbalneav>
However, I'm here with jammcq on the LTSP dev conference, so I'm on two weeks of well needed vacation.
12:05
yeah, life seems only to get more complicated :(
12:05
brb, just gotta do a quick reboot....
12:05
<salomon_>
Hi, I'm still having problems with this client, but I have detected more things. For example, the default session always ganhs when loading the desktop (when it reach that step)
12:06
But with the xfcestart session I could go beyond that step, but after a few seconds it hangs
12:06
Tha term session don't work
12:08
And I'm still getting those "task xxx blocked for more than 120 seconds" every two of three starts, then I have to reboot the client and see if the next time reach the login screen

sbalneav: if you could take a look at http://bugs.debian.org/574516 ... i don't know if the proposed patch is a good or bad idea...
13:55
obviously, the changes to fuse related stuff is outside the scope of ltspfs

15:32

15:42

Kicer86: you want 32 bit thin clients with a 64 bit server?

<vagrantc>

15:42
<Kicer86>
tfu
15:42

15:43
<vagrantc>
Kicer86: you just need to build the ltsp environment and specify the arch: i.e. on debian/ubuntu: ltsp-build-client --arch i386

<Kicer86>
