alkisg: this weekend I switched all workplaces here to LTSP
06:10
<alkisg>
Nice, how many PCs?
06:10
<Hyperbyte>
Well, we're not such a big company
06:11
Main reason I switched to LTSP is that the idea of central management and everybody working on one PC attracts me a lot, administration-wise.
06:11
It's 10 workplaces
06:12
<alkisg>
Any trouble/complains so far?
06:12
<Hyperbyte>
Nope
06:12
But that's because we've been testing it for half a year or so, hehehe... I've really fine-tuned the Gnome environment to all our needs
06:12
<alkisg>
:)
06:13
<Hyperbyte>
Custom widgets and stuff, which talk with our CRM so it can give users some basic information about tasks to-do, while not being logged in to the CRM even
06:14shawnp0wers (~Adium@linuxjournal/staff/shawnp0wers) joined #ltsp.
06:14
<Hyperbyte>
Stuff like that... but I've already started to feel that I can accommodate users better than before. Some people have been asking if I could modify certain settings in Thunderbird... since I can just enforce those on the server, for all users, it's really easy to do that now.
06:14
Then it's fixed in one go for all current users and future users. I like that a lot.
06:15
I'm still working with PC hardware now (configured to do a netboot)... have LTSP thin clients on order though. :)
06:16
It's amazing how you can buy a thin client in America, pay shipping and import costs to Europe, and still be cheaper than at your local computer store.
06:17
Anyway, I'm really happy at the moment. :D
06:17
<andygraybeal>
that's awesome Hyperbyte, i need your skills :)
06:18
i'm still trying to get vpn's and ldap working!!!!
06:18
uhg
06:18
<Hyperbyte>
andygraybeal: what kind of VPN's?
06:19
<andygraybeal>
openvpn
06:19
it's working but i need to get it all working together..
06:19
it's one thing or another at this point.. i'm still working on it
06:19
i haven't given up
06:19
<Hyperbyte>
I remember six years ago I spent a week or so configuring a PPTP VPN on Fedora Core 1 or 2, which could interface with Windows clients.
06:19
Recently I tried again, just for fun... did 'yum install pptpd' and that was it... heh
06:20
<andygraybeal>
so you use fedora?
06:20
<Hyperbyte>
Yessir.
06:20
<andygraybeal>
that's cool
06:20
<Hyperbyte>
Well yes and no.
06:20
Fedora is awesome I think.
06:20
<andygraybeal>
i do like the stability aspect of centos ... jus not the slow moving
06:20
<Hyperbyte>
It sucks that LTSP was nicely integrated into it when I started implementing LTSP
06:20
And by now LTSP isn't supported anymore by Fedora
06:21
<andygraybeal>
;(
06:21
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg: which reminds me, you should really change the topic to something more appropriate... like LTSP Fedora packagers desperately needed. :P
06:21
<alkisg>
Hehe ... I don't think I have access to change the /topic
06:22
Dunno who do, at least sbalneav should have that
06:22
<Hyperbyte>
But 'awesome integration' was true on january 30th 2010... now you can't get it working on Fedora 14 without heavily hacking the client build scripts.
06:22shawnp0wers (~Adium@linuxjournal/staff/shawnp0wers) left irc: Quit: Leaving.
06:22
<Hyperbyte>
Same with Fedora 13... and presumably Fedora 15 suffers from it too, but I haven't tried that yet. No reports about anyone fixing LTSP though, so...
06:22
<alkisg>
Wasn't da_geek providing support for fedora?
06:22
<Hyperbyte>
I haven't seen him in a long time here...
06:23
Tried e-mailing him, asked where he's at and if there's anything I can do to help... I mean, I can't help with the packaging, but I am willing to avail this company as a testbed for new technology...
06:23
No reply though.
06:24
So for now he's MIA I think.
06:25
It's really too bad though, for Fedora and for LTSP as well. Fedora really deserves LTSP ready-to-go in it's package base... and for LTSP Fedora might be a nice entrance into RHEL...
06:25
Or at least that's what I always assumed would happen, until Warren quit.

Hyperbyte, =-0
07:02
<Hyperbyte>
I sent you an e-mail last week, to your redhat.com address
07:02
I'm really curious where you stand at the moment with getting a recent (or at least working ;-)) version of LTSP shipped with Fedora
07:03
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, i am really sorry that i missed your mail, it is prop still sitting in my inbox unread.. :-(
07:03
Hyperbyte, mega Busy right now here @ work
07:04
<Hyperbyte>
Hey, don't worry about it. I'm not. :)
07:04
But where do you stand? What's the problem at the moment? And is there anything I can do to help?
07:04
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, I did publish some .rpm's that worked on F13 without issue, and have been told they also work on F14 (all over @ http://www.dageek.co.uk/ltsp/ )
07:05
<Hyperbyte>
I started implementing LTSP here a while ago, when it was still properly supported by Fedora. Now that I've come to a point where I actually have deployed it, it's unsupported. :D
07:05
So if they work, why aren't they in the main repository?
07:05vmlintu (~vmlintu@conference/ubuntudevelopersummit/x-kjeojfuorxivzlrq) joined #ltsp.
07:05
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, I *think* i have commit access to the Fedora LTSP Packages, but Warren said he was going to come back and maintain the project, so i stepped back to allow him to do so..
07:05
<Hyperbyte>
And he didn't
07:06
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, no, as i know know...
07:06
<Hyperbyte>
It's time to contact him one final time, to ask for his permission to take his beautiful work and move ahead with it
07:06
:P
07:06* Da-Geek is already co-maintainer of the project, So i *should* have full access to update it
07:07* Da-Geek just needs to work out how to submit my new .srpm's and get them included...
07:07
<Hyperbyte>
Well, this is good news then.
07:08
<Da-Geek>
LTSP has changed *so* much since i did the F13 Packages, it looks like i need to re-package them again and get them uploaded to the official build servers to be included in the real repos
07:08
<Hyperbyte>
Well, I'd say focus on Fedora 14
07:08
+15
07:08
Fedora 13 has LTSP, if you modify the build script a little.
07:09
Plus, seeing how far preupgrade has come, there's really nothing holding sysadmins back to keep their Fedora up to date.
07:09
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, /me things we have missed the boat on F14 for offical status anyway, we *might* be able to get them in F15 *IF* we hurry up and get it done quick
07:09
*thinks
07:09
<Hyperbyte>
I did a preupgrade on my LTSP server actually, from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14. I was sure it'd break completely, but in fact not a single thing didn't work anymore.
07:10
Hah, that would be awesome. Although if you release an update later it might work just as well, no?
07:10
<Da-Geek>
yay for Fedora++ and Preupgrade++ :-)

07:10
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, if it is already in F14 base, we can update it
07:10
<Hyperbyte>
Anyway, I've got Fedora 14 here, running LTSP, soon with 10 official LTSP thin clients.
07:10ogra_ (~ogra@p5098ed03.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) joined #ltsp.
07:11
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, if it is not already in the base OS, then getting it added mid relase is a mess...
07:11
<Hyperbyte>
It IS a production environment, but if there's anything I can do... let me know.

Hrm
07:12* Hyperbyte checks rawhide
07:13
<Hyperbyte>
Looks like development version of 15 still has it
07:14
So does rawhide
07:14
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, my .rpm's @ http://www.dageek.co.uk/ltsp/ are a newer version of LTSP from upstream
07:14* Hyperbyte bookmarks
07:15
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, but still not updated to the current upstream
07:15
<Hyperbyte>
There's a good chance I'll do a preupgrade to Fedora 15, take your RPM's and rebuild my client chroot sometime soon.

LTSP seems to have found a new life over on Ubuntu, I am surprised that ppl still want it on Fedora
07:20
<Hyperbyte>
http://local.recreatie-zorg.nl/jan/ltsp.png
07:20
:)
07:20
My current system. LTSP still runs only because of the preupgrade I think. I don't think I'd ever get it working on Fedora 14 otherwise.
07:20
Why does that surprise you?
07:22
<Da-Geek>
i had thought that the LTSP community had all but gone, due to commodity small form factor boxes being so cheap, the extra effot of LTSP for most ppl is way over the top
07:22
<Hyperbyte>
I like Fedora. I'm a big fan of Fedora. Naturally, I'd like to have my LTSP environment Fedora.
07:23
<Da-Geek>
lol
07:23
<Hyperbyte>
Well yeah... but have a terminal environment has much more advantages than just the costs man
07:23
<Da-Geek>
Hyperbyte, you are one of a very select few ppl, for Desktop type things most ppl go to Ubuntu
07:23
Hyperbyte, you dont need to preach to the preacher :-D
07:24
<Hyperbyte>
Well, I'm a creature of habit. I've only ever used Fedora. In fact, I started with RedHat Linux... 6 at the time, I think.
07:24
Well, no... I'm just saying you know, the sole reason I chose for LTSP is because of the endless possibilities it gives me as system administrator
07:25
I have limited time, so the less time I have to spend on upgrading individual PC's, solving problems in people's individual settings (etc), the more time I have to solve real problems.
07:26
Money isn't the big issue... although we're a lot cheaper off with LTSP, but that's mainly because we'd have never ever gone for a Linux environment if I couldn't manage it all on one central server.

Hyperbyte, "Give me an hour, i will fix a problem... give me endless time during the day to do my day-2-day job and play with LTSP i will fix everyones (LTSP) problems"...
07:32
Hyperbyte, well, you can see my point.. :-p
07:33
my current work-craptop is F13, I do however have a box @ home i might be able to install F14 or F15 on to try and build the latest upstream
07:34
then get it .rpm'ified and then work out how I can add it to the official build tree for Fedora
07:34
it looks so easy when you type it out like this :-)
07:38
<Hyperbyte>
Could give you root on an F15 installation...
07:38
Not sure if that makes things easy. :P

hey all
07:47
<dead_root>
morning _UsUrPeR_
07:47
<_UsUrPeR_>
does anybody know of a good way to get default LTSP clients to a specific environment?
07:47
Unity insists on telling me that it won't work, and I find that annoying
07:48
<dead_root>
specific environment? you mean like gnome or xfce?
07:49
<_UsUrPeR_>
ubuntu classic would probably be fine
07:49
I just need to have it be a default on the LTSP options
07:49
(hoping there's an lts.conf feature i didnt know about)
07:49
<dead_root>
i thought that ubuntu and gnome was default for ltsp already
07:50
<_UsUrPeR_>
in 11.04, that is apparently not the case
07:50
:/
07:50
<dead_root>
oh

sorry i have yet to play with 11.04

hey all
10:09
has anybody tried out 11.04 ltsp yet?
10:10
specifically, flash as a local application

<Eghie>
_UsUrPeR_: not yet
10:14
<_UsUrPeR_>
k, I am intrigued to see if anyone else has a problem with the flashplugin-nonfree package
10:14
<roasted>
howdy
10:15
<Eghie>
with maverick I had no problems with that plugin though
10:16
<_UsUrPeR_>
Eghie: so that we're clean, I am trying to use firefox and the flash plug as localapps
10:17
if you have not had problems in 11.04, with that specific configuration, I am going to have to give this another shot

<Eghie>
no, i mean 10.10
10:18
but I don't see any problems with 11.04 also
10:18
but there is something called /etc/adobe/mms.conf or something like that
10:19
see for instance: http://blogs.adobe.com/penguinswf/2008/08/secrets_of_the_mmscfg_file_1.html
10:20
you can try that
10:20
install firefox and flashplugin-nonfree and try to enable OverrideGPU.... stuff in mms.conf and check if that works out ok
10:21
and if you don't have audio, there is an extra package with pulseaudio support
10:21
something called "extrasound"
10:22
ah, not anymore i see
10:22
maybe you should install flashplugin-installer as well

13:30
<alkisg>
There are docs in the irc /topic, you can read about ltsp there
13:30
<andygraybeal>
html_inprogress, it's awesome :) -- you got one configuration on the server for all your clients; it's a great way to manage many inexpensive machines
13:31
and a lot less workstation management overhead
13:31
plus you don't need expensive client machines to run it with

i read a lot lik3e a HARRY PORTER BOOk every month, so just give me the over view

i was thinking off showing linux off to my old high school,,, and there computer are slOWWW with all the surceity stuff on it,, like a min of 2.1 p4 /or centro and 256 mb ddr1
13:39
i dont know,, im thinking about getting strated
13:39
is what they got for hardware
13:40
<vagrantc>
should work well as thin clients, if you get a decent server
13:40
would need more ram to use as fat clients
13:40
<alkisg>
You can go there with a laptop and boot them all off of it, to display linux/ltsp to them
13:40
<html_inprogress>
and moneys tight here,, living in the usa
13:42
well they have desktops with wwindows on it,,

whats fat cliens?

You know, html_inprogress, you can find lots of great resources on Google. Most of what I know about LTSP, heck - most of what I know about anything - comes from Google.
13:47
alkisg, well, in BitchX all it does it redraw the screen. :P
13:48
It messes up when I scroll past the bottom of the channel, then I have to /reset. Teaches me for using such an ancient IRC client though.

Does anyone know if, with LTSP-Cluster, the application-servers perform the user authentication (say with AD) or does the root server?
13:53Nick change: html_inprogress -> ltps

13:54
<ltpsnooob>
so whats the purpose of this?
13:56
<alkisg>
You can get to your school with a laptop, and use LTSP to netboot all of your PCs. They can boot in e.g. 40 seconds and then open firefox or openoffice in 2 seconds. All that without touching their hard disks.
13:56
In other words, the purpose of LTSP is to netboot computers
13:56
<Hyperbyte>
You really should start by reading the documentation a little.
13:57
Reading is how you get knowledge. And reading documentation is far from boring, if you're really interested in the subject.
