Can anyone help me setup nvidia driver for ubuntu 10.04lts?
01:39Gnoze5 (~Gnoze5@41.58.35.1) joined #ltsp.
01:40
<fossala>
I've done "chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install nvidia-current" and then made an xorg file for the client and called it in lts.conf with X_CONF=/etc/X11/xorg.conf.dolphin.
01:40
<alkisg>
Is that xorg file in the chroot? Or on the server?
01:40
<fossala>
The xorg.conf is placed in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11/xorg.conf
01:41
<alkisg>
OK, sit on the client. Open gnome-terminal. Run: ltsp-localapps xterm
01:41
Did an xterm open?
01:41
(btw I assume you mean /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11/xorg.conf.dolphin, right?)
01:42
<fossala>
yes and yes
01:42
<alkisg>
Now run: getltscfg -a
01:42
Put the output to pstebin
01:42
(from now on run everything inside xterm, not inside gnome-terminal)
01:44
<fossala>
pastebin.com/TH7vj8Ny
01:45
<alkisg>
Now on xterm again, type: cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.dolpin, and put that to pastebin too
01:45
<fossala>
When I try and run nvidia-setting it tells me I'm not using the nvidia driver.
01:46
<alkisg>
To see if you're using the driver, on xterm again, run: lspci -nn -k | grep -A 2 VGA
01:46
Don't use nvidia-settings, as this runs on the server.
01:47
<fossala>
I cannot get xorg.conf from the localapps xterm.
01:47
<alkisg>
Then it's not in the image. Did you run ltsp-update-image?
01:47
<fossala>
yup
01:48
I will do it again I may of just done it after the install and not the xorg file.
01:49
<alkisg>
If you see it on the server on /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11/xorg.conf.dolphin but not on the xterm on /etc/X11/xorg.conf.dolphin, then yes, run ltsp-update-image again and reboot the client
01:51
Btw if you're using X_CONF, you don't need XSERVER

I've just noticed devices 2 times so I have sorted that and rebuilt the image.
01:56
<alkisg>
So now you have xorg.conf there on the local xterm, and you rebooted the client, and it's still not working?
01:57
<fossala>
Yeah but when I rebooted I saw a messege comming up (on shutdown) saying it cannot see the xorg.conf.dolphin
01:58
<alkisg>
Check for typos
01:58
<fossala>
Yup miss splet .conf sorry.

Are you sure this is the correct driver for your card? Maybe you need an older one?
02:02
<fossala>
Yes, I used the same card in xubuntu 11.04.
02:03
Sorry it looks like I may need the 185.
02:04
I hate nvidia cards.
02:11
Still not working
02:12
<alkisg>
Check xorg.0.log on the client

sunscreen: (1) I haven't read any links that say that rdesktop is insecure, and (2) running rdesktop as an applet wouldn't have any difference at all, security-wise
04:49mikkel (~mikkel@80-71-132-15.u.parknet.dk) joined #ltsp.
04:50
<sunscreen>
well it more secure in the sense of it will be not allowing any external access to the terminal server
04:50
except via authenticated web pages
04:51
"free tools exist in assisting hackers to break into remote desktop"
04:52
http://www.mobydisk.com/techres/securing_remote_desktop.html
04:52
they probably mean a cracker jack'er
04:52
<alkisg>
sunscreen: erm, sorry but those don't make sense
04:52
If you're concerned about the *server* security, why change the client?
04:53
Also, the rdesktop applet would be less secure, as the password would have to travel from the client, to the server (php), and then back to the client (rdesktop applet)
04:53
<sunscreen>
by the the travels over 192.168x
04:53
<alkisg>
But other than that password travelling, it would make no difference in security
04:53
So it wouldn't make it any *more* secure in any way. The same ports would be used, the same data would be sent.
04:54
<sunscreen>
the inside world .. its a internal virtualized xp terminal services, linux apache is bound to be more secure then xp's terminal server
04:55
<alkisg>
You'd need to authenticate against XP anyway
04:55
So you're just adding a security risk, without removing anything
04:55
<sunscreen>
yeah true they will have to login with the normal credentials again
04:56
and will be transmitted over the inet i see what your saying
04:56
but then you could do it over https
04:56
<alkisg>
So anyway imho that setup you're describing doesn't have any benefit at all - of course you're the one implementing it, I'm just saying my opinion
04:56
How would you make rdesktop authenticate against XP over https?
04:56
If you can do that, you can *again* skip the applet
04:57
The applet doesn't offer anything, security-wise
04:57
<sunscreen>
you wont but when you submit your passwords you know its encrypted
04:57
to the java applet
04:57
<alkisg>
Do you know of any method to make rdesktop, applet or not, authenticate against XP over https?
04:57
I don't think so
04:57
But what I'm saying is, if someone did it, it would work both in the applet version and in the non-applet version
04:58
The applet part gives you nothing
04:58
It doesn't offer any new networking abilities to rdesktop

alkisg, that gui bug of windows's remote desktop dialogs is mildly humerious
05:00
<alkisg>
The single benefits of applets, are "client doesn't need to install a program". But in this case you install the browser and introduce a big security risk without gaining anything
05:00
I don't know which bug you're refering to
05:00
<sunscreen>
the one where administrator does not show up as an allowed person to login via rdp
05:01Gnoze5 (~Gnoze5@41.58.73.163) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
05:05
<sunscreen>
alkisg, I am just looking at it like, the less exposed windows xp is to the outside world surely the better if we can put something between it and the inet for access .. it cant be all wrong.. yes they will have to login once to the php auth pages (passwords transmitted on inet ) and once to the rdesktop applet (again windows passwds travel over the inet) .. I am sure you can give the embedded html default parameters .. too who knows you might
05:05
even be able to auto login and or populate the applets host/user/passwd fields
05:05* sunscreen fiddling with nxclient
05:07
<sunscreen>
and this all only for mobile/remote use alkisg
05:07
<alkisg>
sunscreen: if you want more protection than the standard rdp authentication, use a vpn
05:07
<sunscreen>
well yea true just give the vpn connection back to the office
05:07
hehehe
05:07
<alkisg>
Anyway, all that isn't ltsp related. bb :)

soon xp won't have updates either
05:12
sunscreen, but i'm sure you already know that
05:12
<sunscreen>
they said that when they release sp3 did they
05:13
heh i was semi relieved
05:13
they wont be able to steel or bork any more features
05:15
it just breaks my kinda of perfect world.. there network has nothing needed for ports to be opened and as i said to alkisg that i would rather open up Apache/https then open directly to there very vulnerable m$ RDP server
05:21
but this race is really defined as: hamchi/ipsec/lt2p vpn tunnel vs https apache applet vs m$ terminal service direct .. *and the only decent applet i have came accross is NX* but yeah that's end of my ot ramblings

Hi all, is this a ltsp discussion/help channel?
05:46
<sunscreen>
yes prod___
05:49
<prod___>
brilliant, as i am having a newbs problem. I have ltsp-server up and running and it works great, im very pleased. My only problem is that i have only got amd64 client set up. this is not great for my various laptops that are around the house. I am using "sudo ltsp-build-client --mirror file:///home/prod/ubuntu-i386" but am getting error "NOTE: Root directory /opt/ltsp/amd64 already exists, this will lead to problems, please
05:49
remove it before trying again. Exiting." Is this normal and can i get i386 client installed?
05:49
<sunscreen>
ah
05:49
i got caught out by this my self
05:50
1) when you ltsp-chroot you being chrooted in to the amd64 ltsp at /opt/ltsp/am64
05:51
2) you need to: lts-update-image -a i386
05:52
then setup /srv/tftp/ltsp/i386 and amd64 respectively
05:52
<knipwim>
doesnt ubuntu have an ltsp-build-client.conf in which to setup the ARCH for the install?
05:54
<sunscreen>
i never saw it in ubuntu
05:54
er
05:54
i never saw it in Debian
05:54
<prod___>
sunscreen: when running point 2. "Error: chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 doesn't exist." I am asuming i need to run my first command with a destination folder?
05:55
<sunscreen>
ab you might need to edit the file knipwim mentions and then ltps-build-client again
05:56
<knipwim>
i was just wondering, cause gentoo has that option
05:56
not sure about ubuntu though
05:58
the options in man ltsp-build-client are supposed to be distro generic
05:59
and i see an --arch option
05:59
<sunscreen>
then pass it i386
05:59
;)
05:59
<prod___>
ok, so i can add arg --arch i386?
06:00
<sunscreen>
yep i guess when i pulled my setup in .. it automatically did ltsp-build-client with both amd64 and i386 i did no have to do that step again for i386
06:02
<prod___>
thats it!! I am now building my i386 client. Thank you so much
06:05
<knipwim>
prod___:you use ltsp in your home setup?
06:05
and also for video playback?
06:06
<prod___>
yes. I have a very powerful server/router. Yes i have tested video playback and only seem to be having problems with mp$ files
06:06
mp4*
06:07
<sunscreen>
LDM_DIRECTX=true ?
06:07
<prod___>
sunscreen: Go easy on me :) as i said im very new to thinclients
06:08
where would i specify this parameter?
06:08
<sunscreen>
/opt/ltsp/${arch}/etc/lts.conf
06:09
<prod___>
are you suggesting i use this param or would you like to know my lts.conf?
06:09
<sunscreen>
add LDM_DIRECTX = true too it
06:09
under [default]
06:10
<prod___>
thank you very much sunscreen, your a gent :)
06:11
<sunscreen>
no worries these chaps in here and google taught me all i know :)
06:13
prod___, that turns off the encryption but is aparently 10x faster
06:13
<prod___>
thats brilliant, encryption is useless in my enviroment so this should work wunders
06:14
<knipwim>
prod___: what kind of thin client are you using?
06:16
<prod___>
Various shapes and sizes. Laptops, desktops, workstations. ranging from glorifyed abacus's to fast workstations. But its more of a backup for the more powerful machines
06:17
My main thinclient that this was intended for is a acer one.
06:17
As i can sit in the garden and do my work :)
06:19
<fossala>
I was wondering in a house is there any reason for logging in over ssh (LDM_DIRECTX=false)?
06:19
I also use the server as a torrent box.
06:20
<sunscreen>
unless you got mr hacker coming round connecting to the switch directly packing a copy of etherrape or some thing then no
06:21
<fossala>
Ahh ok.
06:27
<sunscreen>
prod___, btw every time you change the clients root fs you need to ltsp-update-image if you are using nbd .. if your using nfs your sweet
06:27
<prod___>
next stop, Diskless booting for the workstations :)
06:27
<sunscreen>
no need
06:27
<prod___>
How come?
06:28
<sunscreen>
the changes to the fs wont come through to the client other wise
06:29
<prod___>
oh yes i understand that. The config file states the changes inlts.conf
06:30
<sunscreen>
k
06:31
<prod___>
btw i am on ubuntu. I should have stated that earlier
06:34
<fossala>
prod___, use /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/$ARCH/lts.conf so you don't need to update the image each time you modify lts.conf
06:34
<prod___>
hehe i was just about to, the config file in ubuntu is very informative
06:34
<fossala>
Yup.
06:35
<prod___>
the file is ment to be empty as default right? :D
06:35
<sunscreen>
i dont have that file
06:35
<fossala>
I had to create the file.
06:36
<prod___>
ye its a new file
06:36
<sunscreen>
ah i did not know you could do that
06:36
<fossala>
Is says in the /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf config.

I had to use root permissions to edit make the file. I am curios as to whether i am now going to have permission problems getting the file off tftp
06:39
<fossala>
I didn't. But if you do chmod it.
06:39
<prod___>
off to test one of the desktops. Will report back shortly. Thanx for all the help! most appreciated
06:39

mine just states that its the default file ltsp5 and things like sound and local device support are auto enabled if the packages are installed for them

debian
06:40
sorry dog attacking the Velcro strips on my trainers ;
06:40
<fossala>
Debian use's nfs by default doesn't it?
06:40
If so then you don't need to redo the image as far as I could tell.
06:41
hence no need for the other file in /var/lib/....
06:41
<sunscreen>
yeah nfs is how it came down for me .. but on the net install of debian it used nbd

06:54

How fast is the cpu?

im gonna change the tftpboot dir to 777 and see cpu util.

06:55

Isn't chmoding tftpboot to 777 abit unsafe>#
06:55
?**
06:56
<prod___>
Possibly. But just referring to other guides
06:56
<fossala>
It would mean anyone with access to the system could edit the files.
06:57
<sunscreen>
could try and launch it on 1/2 cpus only
06:57
cpu cores even
06:57
<prod___>
If i was forced down this path then some firewall rules could help out there
06:57
I live in a rural part of wales UK. Im not that worried about security

prod___, another thing that dramatically speeds up is not using 32bits but that might be an un acceptable concession when wanting to watch mp4's :)
07:00
<prod___>
:)
07:00
I would like to have the 64bit machines running 64bit. Makes me feel happier inside :)
07:01
<fossala>
I was thinking earlier today I have a x64 server and my clients can be x64 but only have 512mb ram (T5730). Should I use 64 or 32 for the thin clients?
07:01
<prod___>
If im honest Im not gonna waste much time on it. Id rather make a perl script that will auto convert all my mp4 to less hdd hogging formats :0
07:01
<sunscreen>
no interms of the display bit per pixel depth
07:01
not the arch
07:02
16.7 million vs 32 million
07:04
well now we know .. hd over ltsp == get fiber
07:04
:D
07:04
+ v.fast cpu
07:07
<fossala>
Still, would there be any benifit of running the clients 32/64?
07:07
<prod___>
Im not sure if i am right in saying that 64bit uses slightly more memory?
07:07
<fossala>
prod___, Yeah it does.
07:08
<sunscreen>
i is able to address more memory as i understand it .. not a great feature for a thin client with next to none ;)
07:08
<fossala>
But I'm not using localapps.
07:08
<prod___>
but i would also also say that performance is more server/lan dependant
07:08
<sunscreen>
but yeah your kernel is more specific to the hardware
07:08
<fossala>
64bit binarys run slight quicker.
07:09

this is funny, when i launch chrome on a thin client it loads on the server
07:46
<sunscreen>
thats exactly what its meant to do
07:46
<TheMatrix3000_>
install chrome as a local app
07:46
then it wont
07:46
<sunscreen>
to launch any thing on client you can use ltsp-localapps path/to/app
07:46
<prod___>
I mean the UI loads on the server but not on the client
07:46
<sunscreen>
o
07:46
<prod___>
i see
07:48
<sunscreen>
that is a bit weird...i had the same thing with rdesktop/m$ terminal server and chrome, installed it under and it showed up for every one but when you tried to run it no ui showed
07:48
<prod___>
firefox works correctly but not chrome
07:48
<sunscreen>
untill i installed it for each user
07:48
then it worked
07:48
weirdy
07:49
<prod___>
thats good news then, i dont mind i bit of potching to get things smooth :)
07:51
ok totem runs briliantly
07:51
hasnt even touched my server resources
07:52
I think understanding the ground basics for this is a little more than i originally thought
07:53
If i understand correctly you can utilise both server and client resources as u please?

hi friends, I am trying to make my ubuntu machine as ltsp server
12:33
I have run "ltsp-build-client"
12:34
and also started my dhcp server
12:34
however I am not able to understand why my client is not able to boot through ltsp
12:34
can anyone help me debug it
12:34
?
12:34
<Gnoze5>
Hello friend
12:35
have you configured your client to boot from pxe?
12:35
<viggy_prabhu>
when I boot, I get a option to boot from network
12:35
I selected that
12:35
that should be enough right?
12:35
<Gnoze5>
does it get an ip?
12:35
<viggy_prabhu>
not sure how to check that
12:36
<Gnoze5>
what happens when you boot your client from the network?
12:36
<viggy_prabhu>
it tries to get to boot from it but after sometimes tries to boot for Harddisk which I have removed so throws an error saying not able to find bios
12:37
i guess, some error in my server
12:37
how do I check whether the service for ltsp is running or not
12:37
<Gnoze5>
are you sure dhcp is running?
12:37
<viggy_prabhu>
when I do "ps -ef | grep ltsp" I get only one process which is "isc-dhcp-server"
12:38
thats the dhcp server
12:38
shouldnt there be any other process for ltsp?
12:38
<Gnoze5>
did you configure dhcp?
12:38
<viggy_prabhu>
no I didnt configure, using the default one
12:39
I just started it by running "/etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server start"
12:40
/etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf is the default one
12:40
didnt do any change in it
12:40
one more thing is my server is 64 bit but my client is 32 bit
12:41
thats why while running ltsp-build-client, i used "--arch i386" as suggested in wiki page
12:43
Looks like my PXE boot from LAN was disabled in BIOS
12:43
I have just enabled it and booted the client
12:43
<Gnoze5>
and?
12:44
<viggy_prabhu>
keeping my fingers crossed :)
12:44
<Gnoze5>
btw you might have to change lts.conf to boot from the i386
12:44
<viggy_prabhu>
what exactly should I change in it
12:44
?
12:45
and where is that file?
12:46
<Gnoze5>
run ltsp-info
12:47
<viggy_prabhu>
"found image: /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img" is the last line
12:48
do you want the full output?
12:48
<Gnoze5>
i didnt mean lts.conf
12:49
<viggy_prabhu>
Gnoze5, I didnt get you?
12:50
"found: /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf" was the second last line
12:50
<Gnoze5>
its in the dhcp conf that you specify what image is to be booted
12:51
<viggy_prabhu>
ok, I dont find i386.img mentioned in my dhcpd.conf file
12:51
<Gnoze5>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/Troubleshooting/TFTP
12:52
theres a section on a default dhcpd config
12:53
<viggy_prabhu>
ya so what I could understand was, that I need to change the filename in else block to "/opt/ltsp/images/i386.img"
12:53
right?
12:54
<Gnoze5>
whats in there currently?
12:54
use pastie
12:56
<viggy_prabhu>
http://www.pastie.org/2088595
12:56
<Gnoze5>
its already set for the i386
12:56
what happened when you booted from pxe?
12:56
<viggy_prabhu>
same issue
12:57
<Gnoze5>
what was the issue?
12:57
<viggy_prabhu>
waited for sometime and then looked for HDD
12:58
<Gnoze5>
if the dhcpd is running and the client is on the same network, and theres no ther dhcp server on that network, it should work
12:58
at least getting an ip part
12:59
<viggy_prabhu>
can I check on my server if the client requested for an ip and whether it got it?
13:02
<Gnoze5>
well the client would output that for sure
13:03
you can try to get an ip without it being through pxe boot

Gnoze5, I think I got one issue
13:08
my wireless network which I am using to connect to internet and the dhcp were running on the same network
13:08
same subnet
13:08
<Gnoze5>
well that would mess it up
13:08
just turn off all other dhcp servers
13:08
<viggy_prabhu>
I will change the dhcp ip address range to 10.0.0.0 series
13:09
my client is directly connected to my server's ethernet
13:09
so it should get only my server's dhcp right?

13:39
<Gnoze5>
viggy_prabhu the first thing you want to make sure is that the dhcp is working
13:39
if the client gets the ip and is directed to the tftp server
13:40
<viggy_prabhu>
my client doesnt show any information regardin it
13:41
it justs say that is trying to boot from network and then after some time just tries to boot from HDD
13:42
<Gnoze5>
then its not reaching the dhcp server
13:48
<viggy_prabhu>
Gnoze5, let me try with another laptop(my office laptop :) )

Gnoze5, my tftpd service was also not running
14:37
i stopped it and then started it again
14:37
then it showed up in netstat
14:37
now when I tried to boot my client, it showed ARP timout
14:51
Gnoze5, I was able to boot in my client
14:52
ARP problem was because the domain configured in dhcp configuration was dummy "example.com" which was not getting resolved
14:52
I just commented it
14:52
Gnoze5, there is a new problem now, when the system boots it is asking for username and password and it did not take my normal system username and password
14:53
Gnoze5, any idea where it needs to be configured
