mnemoc: you can make a screen script that doesn't start X and instead just launches dosemu
00:20
But it might be more efficient to just serve a real DOS image with PXE :)

how do I run nvidia-xconfig from ubuntu fatclient?
07:47NeonLicht has joined #ltsp
07:53
<hahlo>
must be run as a root

<alkisg>
hahlo: why would you run it?
08:32
To create a xorg.conf? It wouldn't be saved, the fat client disk is read-only
08:33
(I mean it wouldn't persist across boots)

alkisg: hi, at school things seem to run smootly, except some "minor" issues, like sometime the user gets abruptly disconnected (black screen and then login), or LibreOffice crashes, but a zombie process prevents it to restart

anyone ever used openmeeting?
18:52
i'm going to play around with it a little. it would be helpful in our meetings.
18:53
but i obviously use ltsp in our setup.. so i wonder if someone here has used openmeeting and has any tips
18:53
i'm also asking in #moodle
19:00
also, has anyone played around with that gtkwiiwhiteboard with ltsp?
19:01
i should just try these things out instead of trying to talk about it.

how to make thin client choose a different image build when I have two or more image build in ltsp ubuntu 10.10?

<bcwatch>
Does thin clients automatically choose the right architecture when booting? or does ltsp maintain only one client so it defaults to the last ltsp-build-client i execute?
23:27
<alkisg_web>
It doesn't
23:27
You can have multiple images, but the current pxe "menu" (i.e. there's no menu) only supports one
23:28
So you can provide a pxe menu yourself, or send different images based on the client mac address
23:28
Or you can use the latest pxelinux which has support for detecting the client arch
23:39
<bcwatch>
How to use the 2nd option -- send images based on client mac address --- does this goes to lts.conf?
23:39
<alkisg_web>
No, that's before ltsp is involved
23:40
You can do that with dhcpd.conf or with pxelinux.cfg/01-mac-address configuration files
23:40
I.e. for dhcpd.conf, you'd need to send a different boot "filename" option depending on the client mac
23:41
If the client is i386, send boot filename=/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0. If it's amd64, send filename=/ltsp/amd64/pxelinux.0
23:41
What architectures are your clients?
23:42
<bcwatch>
i386 and amd64
23:42
<alkisg_web>
Why would you need 2 different architectures?
23:42
i386 will do for both of them
23:42
<bcwatch>
no I don't --
23:42
I have a 64bit server....
23:43
<alkisg_web>
You can create 1 single i386 chroot
23:43
Even if your server is 64bit, it doens't matter
23:43
<bcwatch>
which build the amd64 because I didn't place the option --arch i386 when I did the ltsp-build-client command
23:43
<alkisg_web>
sudo rm -rf /opt/ltsp; sudo ltsp-build-client --arch i386
23:43
:)
23:45
<bcwatch>
now you tell me :) -- thanks -- but I'll note the choosing arch though, might come in handy later
