Hi Peeps, im trying to backup files onto a DVD using my laptop booted via ethernet to the Ubuntu Server but the DVD writer in my laptop wont work
04:41
<Gremble>
that's what one would expect without some setup garymc
04:41
<garymc>
So what do I need to do to get this Laptops DVD burner working?
04:41
<Gremble>
sorry, not sure for LTSP-5
04:41
<garymc>
ok
04:42
<Gremble>
if you are using a standalone bit of burning software, running it as a local app might work
04:42
though there may be addition config
04:44
<garymc>
hmmm
04:46
<johnny>
garymc, you should probably use a full fat client setup if you want it to work the easiest way
04:46
if your laptop has at least 256mb ram
04:47
then everything (except login/auth) is local
04:47
<garymc>
Im trying to save 4gb of data off the server onto DVD
04:47
<johnny>
and no dvd drive in the server?
04:47
<garymc>
i dont understand what you mean johnny
04:47
<johnny>
fat clients
04:47
use em
04:47
simple
04:47
!fat-client
04:47
<ltspbot>
johnny: Error: "fat-client" is not a valid command.
04:47
<johnny>
!fat
04:47
<ltspbot>
johnny: Error: "fat" is not a valid command.
04:47
<johnny>
!fatclient
04:47
<ltspbot>
johnny: Error: "fatclient" is not a valid command.
04:47
<johnny>
ah.. alkisg isn't here
04:48
fat clients are where the entire OS runs locally, but downloaded the same way as normal ltsp
04:48
it's just more
04:48
and then it logs you into a local session instead of on the server
04:48
but that probably won't work if your data is on the server directly
04:48
so.. instead
04:48
google ssh burn cd
04:49
there are some examples to run the command line burner software while pulling the data to be burned from the remote system
05:16daya has quit IRC
05:17
<garymc>
ok
05:21
so theres no way I can use the DVD burner on my laptop. Even though it reads CDs onto my server from the laptop?

i've finally got dual monitors set up on my thin clien, once i log in everything is great, however at the login screen the form is centered between the two monitors. I've read on a mailing list that this was a known issue. has this ever been solved?
08:13
<robehend1>
m4xx: I've never got it working, myself. same issue. Heck, I've had that before with a full install on a laptop using NVidia drivers
08:14
<m4xx>
=[
08:15
i was hoping there was something that i could do with greeter-gtkrc =[
08:16dobber has quit IRC
08:17dlezcano has quit IRC
08:18
<robehend1>
very well may, but not that i know of
08:18
i can barely trust my students with one monitor, let alone 2
08:18
<m4xx>
lol
08:18
i can say the same thing but with grown ass "men"
08:19
<robehend1>
ha
08:19
the worst day i remember is when they discoverd that pencil graphite is conductive
08:19
lost 7 motherboards that day
08:22
<m4xx>
why are there exposed motherboards?
08:28
<robehend1>
there isnt. They shoved it through the ventilation holes in the back of the machine, and then shook it around until it settled
08:28
<m4xx>
lol
08:28
<nubae>
terrorists :-)
08:28
<m4xx>
did you let the magic smoke out? cause once you do it will never work again.
08:28
<robehend1>
which leads me to my 1st law of k-12 computing
08:28
If it is breakable, students will break it
08:29F-GT has joined #ltsp
08:29
<nubae>
yah indeed, thats why thinclients without anything but usb and vga outputs rock
08:29
<robehend1>
which is what we're going to
08:29
slowly but surely
08:30
at least, if the board decides not to overturn their decision now that MS has been talking to them, full of FUD

Say, does anyone know of a version of the oldschool Oregon Trail that runs nicely on linux?
08:32
I'm wanting my students to learn the joys of dying of dysentery while fording the river.
08:33
<m4xx>
nice
08:33
<nubae>
I say sacrifice one student for the benefit of the others :-)
08:33
<robehend1>
i've found the emulator for Apple IIe that runs well, but i was hoping for a native solution
08:36alkisg has joined #ltsp
08:36
<nubae>
greets alkisg
08:37
<robehend1>
alkisg: I'm seeing drastically increased loading times after adding all the IP's to /etc/hosts
08:38
alkisg: er, decreased loading, decreased. note to self: more coffee
08:38Gremble has quit IRC
08:38
<nubae>
sure... no ip lookups = speed
08:38
<robehend1>
:D
08:39
i think with that, and if i can track down Gadi to help me with hooking up my server apps and localapps more in concert, I'll be 100% set to go talk to the board again
08:40
<nubae>
ah... u're running ltsp across several servers?
08:40
<robehend1>
at the moment, no. one big old server
08:40
i'm not having disk problems, yet, however
08:40
<nubae>
oh, I thought u meant u were running apps on a seperate server from users and such
08:41
<robehend1>
no, i was getting delays at login. LDM would pop up, they'd login, it would authenticate, and then gnome would take ages, 30-45 seconds, to come up
08:41
<nubae>
how many clients?
08:41
<robehend1>
50 atm
08:41
<alkisg>
Hi nubae, long time no see, how are you? Hi robehend1, good to hear
08:41
<robehend1>
running a lab and our media center
08:41zz_evil_root is now known as evil_root
08:42
<nubae>
alkisg: yeah it has been a while... I've been studying for CISA (certified information systems auditor)
08:42
trying to get better job opportunities
08:42
<alkisg>
Ah, nice, are those some kind of exams? Did you pass?
08:43
robehend1: just curious, if you have a lot of localapps and stuff, did you try fat clients? They may suit you better if your clients are up to it...
08:43
<nubae>
havent taken the exam yet, but getting most test questions right, so soon... unfortunately, I think I have to wait until May to take the exam, since they only do it 2 times a year
08:43
anyway, its relatively straight forward, and job opportunities are really good in that sector
08:44
how bout you, what u been up to?
08:44
whats new in LTSP?
08:46
<robehend1>
alkisg: Clients arent up to it, sadly. I tried, and performance wasnt comparable.
08:46
<alkisg>
nubae: LDM has been almost rewritten recently, but I'm mostly doing my phd nowadays so I'm not really up to date with LTSP
08:46
<robehend1>
is CISA a CompTIA test as well? Espicially since between them and Pearson, then seem to own the USA testing market
08:47
<alkisg>
robehend1: fat client performance should be about the same as booting the os from a local disk... what are your client specs, cpu/ram, and do you have a gigabit network?
08:47
<nubae>
well, I downloaded the CBT nugget package
08:47
not sure if compTIA does it too, but probably
08:47
<robehend1>
alkisg: 1st gen celeron 1.2ghz, 256 meg ram, and 100 network
08:48
<alkisg>
Ah then no, that's not good enough to boot a recent os locally :)
08:48
The ubuntu minimum requirements nowadays say 1 GB RAM...
08:48
<robehend1>
hehe yep. it worked wonderfully on my Pent D's with 2 gigs of ram and gig network, but sadly, those are the windows boxes
08:48
I'm suprised by that. I've got 10.10 on some Celeron D's with 512 and it runs nicely, as long as I dont screw with compiz
08:48phoenix_ has joined #ltsp
08:49
<alkisg>
512 is the minimum "for advanced users"
08:49
Novice users (the ubuntu site says) might be frustrated with < 1 Gb RAM
08:49
<nubae>
really, 1 gb... that's crazy
08:50
2 years ago, we could get by on 256 without any problems
08:50
<alkisg>
$ ps aux|grep firefox-bin
08:50
alkisg 2003 1.9 3.9 519216 163208 ? Sl 07:29 10:54 /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/firefox-bin
08:50
512 MB just for the browser :)
08:50
<evil_root>
hey the more you move away from command line, the more ram you waist
08:50
<nubae>
bloatware
08:50
indeed, hear hear evil_root
08:51
<robehend1>
well if they werent worried about it looking pretty and running 20 different tabs in firefox with flash running while streaming audio through rythimbox, it wouldnt be a problem
08:51
<nubae>
I always fantasised about a command line based ltsp setting... it would be graphics based, but just ascii and colour terminal based
08:51
would be awsome
08:51
<muppis>
nubae, done that. :)
08:52
<robehend1>
my students are terrified when i boot into command line. they think i'm going to break it
08:52
<nubae>
muppis: well where is it? did u create a plugin for ltsp? :-)
08:52
<robehend1>
or that i'm playing a trick on them, becuase, and I quote, "No one could use that, its stupid!"
08:52
<nubae>
yeah, the 'its stupid' comment I've heard too often from students when using Linux in general
08:53
<muppis>
nubae, no. It's just basic ltsp with X on basic ubuntu-server. Nothing special.
08:53
<robehend1>
just cuz it wont run World of warcraft doesnt mean its bad
08:54
even though i think wine lets you do that too, now
08:54
<nubae>
ah... I just remember back when DOS was at its peak, there were some nice shells that were graphical in nature and that u could choose various options to run programs by typing in a number or letter
08:54
<evil_root>
i will confirm running warcraft threw the ltsp
08:54
warcraft 3 and wow
08:54
<nubae>
it made me think would be nice to do something similar for ltsp
08:54
<evil_root>
it was a fat client though
08:54
<robehend1>
we played a trick on our students last april fools.
08:55
Booted all of the windows machines to a command prompt
08:55
it was chaos.
08:55
<evil_root>
lol
08:55
<muppis>
robehend1, cool.
08:55
<robehend1>
all except for the one kid who knew how to use "net send"
08:55
he was a king, that day
08:59
<muppis>
Sure. We used net send a lot at school. It was fun to fool teacher.
09:02
Specially when done from other classroom and viewing reactions from webcam.

Gadi: Hey, did you ever get that localapps integration thing working that you were talking about? The one that let my server-installed pdf viewer work through a local app firefox downloads window?
11:35
<Gadi>
robehend1: yeah - I think stgraber has a lucid package
11:36
<robehend1>
Gadi: Ooo, happen to have a ppa and package name for me? I'd love to test
11:36
<Gadi>
I need to find out what ppa he has it in

hello
11:38
<robehend1>
well hello
11:38
<Pascal_1>
does somebody could told me where i could find documentation about ltsp and ldap authentication + samba home directory ?
11:39
<robehend1>
lemme see if that wiki link is updated. I just had to do that myself earlier this year
11:39
Pascal_1: Are you wanting the entire home directory off of samba, or just a mounted samba drive.
11:40
<Pascal_1>
i need that each user coul mount there home directory
11:40
<Gadi>
robehend1: it might be here: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/revolution-linux/ppa/ubuntu lucid main
11:40
<robehend1>
their active directory home directory?
11:41
<Pascal_1>
actually each user are authenticated on an ldap server to access to there home directory on samba
11:41
no active directory
11:41
<Gadi>
robehend1: put that in your chroot's sources.list, update, install "ltsp-client" and "ltsp-client-core", update the image
11:41
<robehend1>
Gadi: Hmm, alright. so its included in the client, not a localapp plugin or something?
11:41
<Gadi>
nope - localapps is part of ltsp
11:42
<robehend1>
Pascal_1: Not sure i can help ya then, sorry. I just use libpam_mount to mount folders at login, and likewise to authenticate to an AD
11:42
<m4xx>
might it be possible to use a gdm.conf to fix my login form issue?
11:42
<robehend1>
Gadi: any breaking chance, or is it safe to deploy on live systems. Well, a more than usual breaking chanc,e that is
11:43
<Gadi>
robehend1: you can always reinstall the original :)
11:43
<robehend1>
haha nice
11:43
means I'll be trying over christmas, when i dont have kids ;)
11:43
<Pascal_1>
robehend1: it could interess me
11:43
sorry for my poor english
11:43
<robehend1>
Pascal_1: no problem. try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ActiveDirectoryIntegration
11:43
<Pascal_1>
robehend1: i made a try before and i had a lot of problem with pam
11:44
i think i dont understand everything about pam
11:44
;-)
11:44
<robehend1>
Pascal_1: shows you basic AD integration through likewise, and some basic pam mounts. beyond that, i just had to tweak to fit my setup
11:45
Gadi: say, thought. I've got 2 chroots, one for test, and one for actual usage. can i just put this thing in my test chroot, see what happens, and then apply to the live one if needed?
11:46
<Gadi>
robehend1: what you do with your chroots on your own time... ;)
11:46
<robehend1>
haha
11:47
<m4xx>
Gadi, if i may bother you. I've got dual monitors set up on my thin client, when i login everything is beautiful, but my login screen is centered between the two monitors. I read in the mailing list that this is a known issue. Did you ever come up with a solution?
11:47
<Gadi>
robehend1: make sure you add REMOTE_APPS=True to lts.conf
11:48
<robehend1>
Gadi: will do
11:48
<Gadi>
m4xx: yeah, unfortunately the current greeter has positioning hard coded to center
11:48
m4xx: which, on dual monitor comes out funny
11:49
m4xx: so, the quick and dirty way is to edit the greeter code and make ur own package, say , with the box on the right
11:49
<robehend1>
Gadi: Say, added that ppa to my sources.list and am getting W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 72714DCDB4DBDF00
11:50
<Gadi>
m4xx: the better way would be if we could run the greeter on :7.0 , as opposed to :7
11:50
and have it do the right thing
11:50litlebuda has joined #ltsp
11:50
<Gadi>
haven't looked at the problem in years
11:51
robehend1: yeah, just warning you that you don't have rev linux's key to authenticate the packages
11:51
robehend1: so, it will say, are you sure you trust this?
11:51
<robehend1>
ah, that makes sense then.
11:51
<Gadi>
robehend1: you just say: yes, Gadi gave it to me
11:51
robehend1: and I trust him implicitly
11:51
<robehend1>
i'll add that into my bash scripts
11:52
<Gadi>
there is a flag for apt-get to answer that way automatically
11:52
:)
11:52
<robehend1>
heh, think i'll leave it off, incase i screw something up one day.
11:53
i'm good at that
11:54
<Gadi>
m4xx: what you may not know is that there is a secret lts.conf param, LDM_GREETER that can be set to point to an alternate ldmgtkgreet
11:55
m4xx: so one *could* have a dualhead greeter just for the dualhead

can one copy a currently working chroot, give it a different name, and use it for testing? I.e. take my i386 chroot, copy it as i386v2, and use that as my test chroot?
12:47
<johnny>
mostly yes
12:47
as long as you change your nbd/nfs/dhcp/whatever t point it it
12:48mgariepy has joined #ltsp
12:48
<robehend1>
ah nice.
12:48
<johnny>
i've done that more than a few times in the past
12:48
<robehend1>
johnny: so, basically, copy it with a new name, change my dhcp to point to the new chroot, and boom bang wo?
12:50
<johnny>
and whatever tells it to mount the remote fs
12:50
<robehend1>
ah kk
12:51
<johnny>
like.. on ubuntu, adding another line to the /etc/inetd.conf file to tell it to do the other chroot
12:51
adding another port
12:51
and then editing the kernel command line of the pxeboot
12:52
there are docs for that
12:52
should be able to find it on a search engine
12:52
<robehend1>
coolio. I'm gonna have to look into this more, but now that i have direction, it should be easier. thanks!

has anyone had any *real* kind of luck running PPC machines as thinclients? I keep looking at this stack of g3 imacs..
13:07
<alkisg>
Does this flash video speedup affect linux too? http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2010/12/flash-video-gets-dramatically-more-efficient.html
13:08
<robehend1>
alkisg: 10.2 is still in beta, i think the repository one is still 10.1
13:09
<alkisg>
Sure, but once it's out, will we finally get less cpu usage for flash video on linux?
13:09
Or is it windows-specific?
13:09
<robehend1>
it depends on the gpu drivers, i believe, since the are handing off alot of the encoding to the GPU instead of the CPU
13:11
<johnny>
robehend1, i woudn't bother
13:11
they won't be ableto run modern applications
13:11
<robehend1>
johnny: even if i have about 0 of the things stacked here?
13:11
<johnny>
0? :)
13:11
<robehend1>
johnny: er, 80
13:11
<johnny>
yep
13:12
gonna be more troube than they are worth
13:12
that us.. unless you wanna stick to console applications
13:12
if you do.. then you'll be fine
13:12
<robehend1>
darn. was hoping i could slap Gcompris on them and let em loose in my elementary
13:12
<johnny>
no way
13:12
that would be impossible
13:12
also it's really complicated to set them up

there not bad for what they are. 400 mhz, 256-386 megs ram, but ya
13:13
<johnny>
hhmm.. are they really 256mb ram??
13:13
<robehend1>
yep. i updated em 5 years ago from 128
13:13
<johnny>
all of em?
13:13
<robehend1>
mhmm
13:13
<johnny>
ah.. you might be able to use those
13:13
i didn't know they were upgradable
13:13
<robehend1>
ram was the *only* thing upgradeable about these beasts..
13:13
<johnny>
pretty sure the ones i used to run at my store wee 64 or so
13:14
<robehend1>
well, the g3 imacs went through alot of renditions, remember
13:14
<johnny>
oh.. you'll probaby be just fine
13:14
i must have had the earliest of the early
13:14
i don't actually know, since i only had one
13:14
<robehend1>
your probably thinking of the g3 emacs, which were the first ones i think..OS 8.1 and 64 megs
13:14
<johnny>
but you will have to build the first chroot one one of the boxes themselves
13:14
and all upgrades will have to be built on the boxes too
13:14
so you'll want to install linux one of them, and then install the chroot
13:15
<robehend1>
ah
13:15
<johnny>
and then copy it to the server
13:15
<robehend1>
and then copy the chroot over to the server, change the mounts, and go from there
13:15
<johnny>
yes that'll work
13:15
you sure have plenty of ram
13:15
but.. there's no guarantee of stability of the ppc ubuntu port
13:15
since it's no longer official
13:16
<robehend1>
well, thats good to hear. sounding like a summer project, however
13:16
<johnny>
or availabiliyt of reasonable packages, bu you should be able to find out that rather quickly
13:22
<robehend1>
well stil worth a shot before i junk em
13:22
<alkisg>
Won't a debian chroot work with an ubuntu server?
13:23
<robehend1>
no clue, never tried
13:24
though i am pleased that I was able to pick up some cheap boxes that should make good LTSP servers. woo refurbished units

priyank: Do you have sudoer permission?
15:08
<priyank>
ya i have
15:08
<alkisg>
priyank: if ltsp-build-client failed, you should solve the problem and run it again
15:09
E.g. some packages might not have been downloaded
15:09
<priyank>
alkisg: ok. I am using ubuntu 10.10 so shall i update all the packages
15:09
actually the error groups: cannot find name for group ID 0
15:09
<alkisg>
priyank: do you have the whole output of ltsp-build-client? if so, paste it to pastebin
15:09
!pastebin
15:09
<ltspbot>
alkisg: "pastebin" :: the LTSP pastebin is at http://ltsp.pastebin.com. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebin, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. Don't forget to paste the URL of the text here.
15:10
<alkisg>
Not the `chroot` error afterwards. If the chroot is broken, you can't fix it
15:11
<priyank>
ok i am trying again. I will pastebin it when it completes
15:12
http://www.ltsp.pastebin.com/HzjiQMfK
15:13
<alkisg>
That's not the whole output... check "Unlimited scrollback" in your terminal preferences
15:13
Did the packages before those in the pastebin get downloaded correctly?
15:14
<priyank>
mind remotedesktop?
15:14
<alkisg>
ok, run `sudo apt-get install x11vnc` and `x11vnc -connect alkisg.dyndns.org`
15:20
A connection starts but it closes immediately...
15:21
<robehend1>
i am terrified of the day Alkisg begins to send out invoices for this help ;)
15:21
<alkisg>
Heh... nah I'm already being paid for my involvement with ltsp, I'm not looking for anything more :)
15:21
<robehend1>
nice.
15:21
<priyank>
nice
15:22
<robehend1>
also, woo, Remote_apps works fantastically
15:24
<alkisg>
priyank: this shouldn't matter, but don't use sudo when you're already root
15:24
<priyank>
ok. let this install finish and lets see the error
15:24
<alkisg>
ok
15:26
<priyank>
can you tell me 1 thing. actually currently i am connected to router wirelessly so will the clients be able to connect to me
15:26
<alkisg>
Yes, but of course slowly
15:27
<priyank>
ok. i haven't done related to wireless so please tell me the steps
15:27
let this install finish then we can try in virtualbox
15:28
<evil_root>
if your already connected wireless its the same steps, wireless is just slower then enet but they both use IP
15:28mgariepy has quit IRC
15:28
<alkisg>
Sure... but I'm also doing other stuff so don't worry if sometimes it takes a couple of minutes for me to answer
15:29
<priyank>
no probs i know..
15:32
alkisg: it would take around 30 min for all downloads.
15:33
<alkisg>
priyank: so you only want to use your wireless card? Do you have a router in your dhcp server?
15:34
Heh
15:34
Do you have a dhcp server in your router?
15:34
(it's getting late here :D)
15:34
<priyank>
ok i think you can go. I can try myself or tell u tomorrow
15:35
actually i was confused how can client boot wirelessly
15:35mordocai has quit IRC
15:35Pascal_1 has quit IRC
15:36
<alkisg>
priyank: no I mean it's getting late and I'm doing syntactical errors :D
15:36
If you have a dhcp server running on your router, then you can't use dhcp3-server in your server
15:36
You can use a proxy dhcp server though
15:36
That's why I'm asking...
15:37
<priyank>
ya dnsmaqd
15:37
i will have to use that
15:37
<alkisg>
OK let's get it ready until ltsp-build-client finishes...
15:37
<priyank>
ok
15:37
<robehend1>
whoa, you can pxe boot over wireless now? i thought there was a hard break in the wifi drivers that didnt support that
15:37
<alkisg>
robehend1: that's the server, not the client
15:37
<robehend1>
ah, alright.
15:38
was gonna say, that delay would be horrendous
15:38
<priyank>
please clarify me how to boot client wirelessly with password
15:38
<alkisg>
priyank: errrr you *also* want the client wirelessly?
15:38
Not just the server?
15:39
<robehend1>
priyank: Impossible at the moment, priyank. Wifi drivers dont support pxe boots
15:39
<priyank>
ya.. ok.
15:39
<robehend1>
only thing i could think of would be doing it through a wifi ethernet bridge
15:39
but that would take ages
15:39
<alkisg>
Right... or loading a customized initramfs locally from a usb stick or cd etc
15:40
<robehend1>
yep, not a true pxe setup. and more hassle than its worth, with wifi-s throughput
15:40
<priyank>
ok.. actually currently i am connected wirelessly and the client i would try in the virtualbox How would it boot?
15:40
<alkisg>
priyank: if we setup dnsmasq in proxy mode it will just work :)
15:40
<priyank>
ok
15:41
lets see
15:41
<alkisg>
priyank: do these steps: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
15:41
(not the steps referring to Karmic of course)
15:41
(so ignore the "getting a newer dnsmasq version" paragraph)
15:43
<vagrantc>
there is at least one wireless card supported by gPXE/iPXE
15:44
<alkisg>
It still needs a local medium (unless burned into rom) so it's not much different than the custom initramfs... :-/
15:44
priyank: change the dhcp-proxy=xxx line, put your current ip there
15:45
dhcp-range, sorry
15:46
<priyank>
is it correct?
15:46
<alkisg>
Now run `sudo invoke-rc.d dnsmasq restart`
15:46
Yes, it's ok
15:46
<priyank>
you have the control
15:46
<alkisg>
Then we need to wait for ltsp-build-client to finish
15:46
<priyank>
ok
15:47
<alkisg>
vnc is a little slow because you're also downloading packages...
15:47
<priyank>
okk
15:48
<alkisg>
priyank: which vbox do you have? oracle or the -ose version?
15:48
<priyank>
oracle
15:48
<alkisg>
OK. Create a vbox with no disk and put its nic to "bridged" mode
15:48
*a vm
15:49
<priyank>
in Name? wlan0 or eth0?
15:51evil_root is now known as zz_evil_root
15:51
<alkisg>
wlan
15:53
priyank: check [v] network and put it up, to be first

16:38

See the proxydhcp wiki page

speed should not be bad i think
16:40
but ok
16:40
<alkisg>
it's not good though :(
16:41

That's about it... :)
16:51
<priyank>
thanks a lot
16:52
<alkisg>
You're welcome. Btw, if you need a boot disk (I saw you googling something related), use gpxe
16:52
!gpxe

16:52
<priyank>
ok
16:53
thanks.. but it was just experiment in real life i would try in lan conn only
16:53
<alkisg>
OK. Good night all...
