02:55
<Roasted>
welcome :)
02:55
continuing from #ubuntu fishscene_2, do you have another box to try again as a client?
02:55
because I do have to wonder if the actual thin client box itself is just crapping out due to a hardware issue
02:56
<fishscene_2>
Hi
02:56
Roasted: uhhhh maybe. I'll have to see if I can grab a laptop. brb
02:57
<Roasted>
yeah, any pxe-bootable device should do the trick
03:01
<fishscene_2>
I always love that message "PXE Entry point found! (we hope) at ;asfja;sofa;sjg"
03:01
<Roasted>
hahaha
03:01
I love seeing that too
03:01
I always thought it was a FOG thing, since I use PXE with FOG
03:01
but I saw it too on LTSP
03:02
<fishscene_2>
I hope they never change it. :)
03:02
Anyway. Similar problem! I didn't see any error messages, but I was dumped back out to the login screen. I'm wondering if this is an architecture-communication issue.
03:03
<Roasted>
man I wish I was at work to see my config
03:04
<fishscene_2>
You mentioned something about editing a file... I have not edited any files.
03:04
<Roasted>
I also wish some of the other guys were here
03:04
they know far more than I do
03:04
well lts.conf is kind of a file that controls the way LTSP acts
03:04
<fishscene_2>
Well I appreciate the help
03:04
<Roasted>
the entries I put in LTS.conf were specific to my network
03:04
but my n etwork at work is huge...
03:04
2,000 systems
03:04
I'm not sure if there are any specific lts.conf entries that would help your scenario out
03:05
have you updated the SSH keys?
03:05
<fishscene_2>
heh. I have about 100 workstations. I know there are ways to send specific boot images to MAC addresses and all, but I'm not at that stage yet. :P
03:05
<Roasted>
I have no idea if that's the winning ticket but, it's on my list
03:05
<fishscene_2>
Let me update the keys and see how that turns out
03:05
<Roasted>
sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys
03:05
sudo ltsp-update-image --arch i386
03:05
that's what I have in my notes
03:05
<fishscene_2>
lol yea
03:05
<Roasted>
try updating aftewrards
03:06
can't hurt
03:06
<fishscene_2>
uhhh
03:07
"sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys" spits out "cat: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key.pub: No such file or directory"
03:07
<Roasted>
what the hell?
03:07
<fishscene_2>
...that's what I'm wondering
03:07
<Roasted>
how did you install LTSP?
03:07
<fishscene_2>
Let me manually navigate there
03:08
"sudo apt-get install ltsp-server & openssh-server" (I think) I didn't want the standalone because I had a DHCP server already
03:09
<Roasted>
I see
03:10
<fishscene_2>
Interesting. I have a bunch of files in /etc/ssh/, but not an "ecdsa" key
03:10
The closest thing I have is "ssh_host_dsa_key.pub"
03:10
<Roasted>
I wonder if that's where your issue is.
03:10
The catch is, I'm not entirely sure how to fix it.
03:10
<fishscene_2>
I'm wondering that too.
03:10
<Roasted>
I've always doen the stand alone install, and edited dhcp accordingly.
03:11
and in fact, on the 10.04 livecd for Edubuntu, there's an "Install LTSP" icon on the desktop
03:11
I think I used that recently
03:11
<fishscene_2>
heh. I dont' have this problem with my server at work either, so let me turn to Google and see what pops up there.
03:11
lol
03:12
<Roasted>
good luck with that. I'm a little limited in what else I could help with.
03:12
however, the guys in here are really great and have helped me a lot.
03:12
<fishscene_2>
I'm going to re-install openssh server and see what happens.
03:12
<Roasted>
I owe them so much beer for their time it's unreal.
03:12
<fishscene_2>
LOL
03:18
The stuff to generate the key is even more cryptic than the key itself.
03:19
<Roasted>
lol
03:21
<fishscene_2>
oh cool. a new error "invalid card number" when I log in
03:21
<Roasted>
wait
03:21
I had that before...
03:21
shit...
03:23
hm, google isn't bringing up anything that's jogging my memory
03:23
did you update ssh keys?
03:23
<fishscene_2>
yup
03:23
<Roasted>
did you update the image?
03:23
<fishscene_2>
yup
03:23
<Roasted>
hm
03:24
I don't have that error documented in my guide
03:24
dang, how did I fix that
03:24
I had it on 10.10 for some reason
03:26
is then when you try to log in
03:26
or during boot
03:27
<fishscene_2>
after I log in, The screen goes a terminal-view (all black with white text) and Displays "ok" in the top right corner, one line below, on the left side, it says "invalid card number". Then after about a second, it dumps me back to the login screen
03:27
<Roasted>
I feel like that was an ssh-keys issue....
03:28
honestly I think that's the root of this issue you're having
03:28
<fishscene_2>
When I removed openssh-server, I noticed the /etc/ssh directory was still there, along with all the keys. Should I uninstall again, then delete the directory?
03:29
<Roasted>
you could try it at your own risk. I'm not entirely sure what to do at this point, to be honest.
03:29
but I feel like it's an SSH issue.
03:29
<fishscene_2>
Tell you what. I'm just going to uninstall all the LTSP-stuff and re-install, rebuild and see what happens.
03:42
ok! uninstalled openssh-server, renamed "/etc/ssh" to "/etc/ssh-delme", created "/etc/ssh" and re-installed openssh-server, it generated the key file that was missing earlier. I'm executing "ltsp-build-client --arch i386" now
03:48
<Roasted>
crossing fingers....
03:49
<fishscene_2>
I'm only crossing them at the last minute. Otherwise, they get all bent out of shape. :P
03:58
<Roasted>
still building?

I don't even know what an NBD server is.
04:16
<Roasted>
pretty sure it's referring to LTSP
04:17
<fishscene_2>
I'm about to pull the plug on this project. I'm not willing to completely bork my home computer.
04:17
<Roasted>
I think NBD is some sort of protocol that they use to talk
04:17
ahh, I'm sure you can get it working.
04:17
I'm using LTSP at work with 100 systems
04:17
right now i'm setting up a single server to run with 70 thin clients
04:17
running DHCP and all
04:17
<fishscene_2>
Yea, but it seems I'm having a cascade failure here.

04:29
<fishscene_2>
ok- fixed that problem by modifying "/etc/inetd.conf" I changed "/opt/ltsp/images/amd64.img" to "/opt/ltsp/images/i386.img". This fixed the nbd-server problem.
04:30
But I have the invalid card number problem again.
04:30
<Roasted>
hm
04:30
nice
04:30
ssh keys???
04:30
maybe?
04:30
*shrug*
04:30
grasping for straws
04:30
<fishscene_2>
Already updated.
04:30
lol
04:30
<Roasted>
I'd be tempted to uninstall everything LTSP related with a --purge to get rid of its traces
04:31
I've only ran LTSP from fresh setups
04:31
so it's hard for me to determine what it uses, where, why, how, etc.
04:31
<fishscene_2>
yea

08:34
How many clients?
08:35
<muppis>
Actually, those will serve diskspace with drbd.
08:35
Not LTSP related though.
08:40
People around here is too suspicious what comes to LTSP, they do not want to learn 'new'.

irc seems buggy this morning :-)
09:47
oh ! it works again ;-)
09:47
I've got a strange error while trying to mount my usb key into ltsp server. I use "ltspf client:/media/root mydir" on server and get this message : "Couldn't read LTSPFS_TOKEN atom.". What can i do ?
09:47
is it linked with the fact that i'm not in 'fuse" group on the server ?

<Hyperbyte>
layus, LTSP localdev works out-of-the-box. In a default LTSP installation, when you plug a USB stick in a client, it appears on the desktop of the user logged in to the server
10:08
Not sure what you mean with USB 'key', by the way, but LTSP localdevices (ltspfs) only works with block devices (filesystems)
10:09
<layus>
yes, it should work out of the box, but it doesn't
10:09
on the client, my usb stick is mounted in /media/root/usb...
10:10
but it is not mounted on the server
10:10
seems like a strange bug, or a misconfiguration from me
10:10
<vagrantc>
sounds like you have ltspfs installed in the wrong place
10:10alkisg has left IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg, Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
10:10
<layus>
as i don't use ldm (for now)
10:11alkisg has joined IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg)
10:11
<vagrantc>
the /media/USERNAME mounts happen where ltspfs is installed
10:11
<layus>
vagrantc : where should it be ?
10:11
<vagrantc>
installed on the server
10:11alkisg1 has left IRC (alkisg1!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
10:11
<layus>
it is
10:11
<vagrantc>
you need ltspfs installed on the server, and tthe user in the fuse group
10:12
alkisg: hi!
10:12
<layus>
i cant add user in fuse group, but set setuid bit on fusermount executable, wich should be the same
10:13
<vagrantc>
you also need write access to /dev/fuse
10:13
and half a dozen other things to work around simply adding users to the fuse group
10:13
and you're not using ldm???
10:13
this sounds like an excercise in pain
10:14
localdevices need some ssh plumbing that ldm sets up in order to work.
10:14
<layus>
as it seems...
10:15alkisg has left IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg, Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
10:15
<layus>
but ldm doesnt handle a menu list of servers to connet on
10:15
<vagrantc>
sure it does
10:16
i use it all the time
10:16
<layus>
and is it possible to open the connection in another vt ?
10:16
<vagrantc>
LDM_SERVER=server1 server2
10:16
layus: you can have multiple LDM's running, if that's what you mean?
10:17
but it doesn't spawn a newldm running on a new vt
10:17
<layus>
... Maybe i should give it another look.
10:18
Do you know if it is possible to list windows servers in LDM_SERVER list ?
10:18
<vagrantc>
it's just a list of text
10:18
but you will also have to specify the connection protocol
10:18
and that will require fairly recent versions of ldm
10:19
<layus>
that is no problem, but where to begin ? is there some doc on this fairly recent version ?
10:20
<vagrantc>
you select servers/protocols from the preferences menu in the lower left hand corner of the screen
10:20
the protocol selection was introduced in ldm 2.2x
10:21
<layus>
k, let's gie it a try ;-) thanks

stgraber, highvoltage, mgariepy, ogra_: While completing the uds form, I'm seeing: "Would you be willing to participate as member of the crew?" ==> that means to participate in a session? Should I put "no" there, or there's a chance I could help with something about edubuntu/ltsp?
11:30
...putting no there... :)
11:31
stgraber, ogra_: I've submitted the UDS sponshorship form, I'd much appreciate it if you could vouch for me :)

Thanks highvoltage. Hi Gadi.
13:10
Gadi, did you say xfreerdp had some new fancy features? I've backported the oneiric version, should I be using something from git instead?
13:11
<Gadi>
good morning, alkisg
13:11
well, freerdp is going through some changes at the moment
13:11
<alkisg>
Ouch, hope I didn't start the questions before the morning coffee :D
13:11
<Gadi>
:)
13:12
they have decided to rewrite the entire codebase from scratch
13:12
<alkisg>
!!!!
13:12
<ltsp>
alkisg: Error: "!!!" is not a valid command.
13:12
<Gadi>
because they want to license under Apache
13:12
<alkisg>
I thought only minor code parts were affected by this
13:12
<Gadi>
and they are being blocked by some rdesktop guys who insist that as a fork they remain gpl
13:13
<alkisg>
Ah, I see
13:13
<Gadi>
so, to avoid legal issues down the road, they are spending 2 months to rewrite the code
13:13
<vagrantc>
*sighh*
13:13
<Gadi>
and are asking developers to sign an agreement saying that what they contribute can be licensed under Apache
13:13mgariepy has left IRC (mgariepy!~mgariepy@ubuntu/member/mgariepy, Read error: Connection reset by peer)
13:14
<Gadi>
so, as it stands now,
13:14
<vagrantc>
maybe we should fork freerdp without the licensing craziness
13:14
<Gadi>
there are debs out there from 0.8.2 or so, but a lot of new features were added since then
13:14
git (from the rdesktop fork version) has the latest there
13:14
<vagrantc>
why are they so set on rewriting under apache license?
13:14
<Gadi>
and now, there is another git repo with the brand new from scratch code
13:15
vagrantc: there are several arguments as to why it makes sense
13:15
<alkisg>
Got it. Have you tried their remotefx stuff? Any marked improvements?
13:15
<Gadi>
but, I think the gpl license blocked the acceptence into several main venues that would lead to wider adoption

13:16
<alkisg>
Btw, vagrantc, will you be there at the ltsp bts?
13:16
<Gadi>
alkisg: I have tried the multimedia redirection and it works well in certain cases
13:17
remotefx I have only watched on youtube, and it is supposed to be great
13:17
and looks impressive
13:17
<vagrantc>
alkisg: doubtful... it's always pretty much bad timing and location for me
13:17
<alkisg>
Gadi, is a special graphics card required on the server for this to work?
13:18
<Gadi>
nope
13:18
it basically sends remotefx drawing instructions to the client that renders them either in a hardware chip or in software using opengl
13:18* alkisg would love to see vagrantc there, there's good chance that I will make it to the bts
13:19
<alkisg>
Gadi, and either windows 7 or windows 2008 r2 will do for the server part?
13:20
<Gadi>
I am not sure if remotefx works with terminal servers or only with VDI-type VMs - I haven't played with it
13:21
<alkisg>
OK thanks Gadi, I'll shut up and let you have your coffee now :)
13:22
<Gadi>
am I that incoherent?
13:22
:)
13:22
man, I guess it shines through

hi
14:14
<shogunx>
hows it been? i have one of these hp t5325 clients here... wondering how far you got with it. maybe i can add my hackery to the equation.
14:14
<vagrantc>
i made some good progress wit hit!
14:15
it runs a striaght debian kernel from squeeze, wheezy, sid or experimental
14:15
the console doesn't really work, but X works by specifying some values in lts.conf
14:16
<shogunx>
i was thinking on how to use the factory os with a ltsp setup... maybe via ssh -X we can connect to ldm? or are you saying that you got it sorted fat client style?
14:20
<vagrantc>
i tried using ssh -X, but it was pretty meessed up
14:20
(ldm actually is the program that ruuns ssh -X, so that doesn't work so well with ldm integration)
14:20
shogunx: i got it running as a full thin client ... fat client could work as well

the automated builds of ltsp-docs would be nice.

hey guys - what's the common reasoning behind "invalid card number" happening?
17:59
I was trying to help a user in #ubuntu yesterday who was asking about ltsp.
17:59
<Ghidorah>
Hello everyone, does anyone know what may cause pam_mount to throw CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13 but works when logging in local to the app server?
18:02ltsp` is now known as ltsp
18:03
<alkisg>
Roasted: "invalid card number" is usually not the reason for the client not booting, but an unrelated warning. It had to do with pulseaudio or upstart if I remember well, was fixed in later versions.

alkisg, I see. this user seemed to have some ssh issues as well, and the error went away, but they got a different error after that. I couldn't help him any longer as it was out of my league at that point.
18:09
alkisg, he installed LTSP separately on an existing Ubuntu system and was using a router with DDWRT as his DHCP server.
18:09
<alkisg>
Don't worry if he wants to install LTSP he shouldn't give up on the first try :)
18:09
<Roasted>
Then he tried to remove all traces of LTSP and start over, but never got anywhere. Like I said, I felt like it was SSH related based on the discussion we had.
18:09
Well I assured him it's a pretty bitchin thing once you get it running. I told him I never had any major headaches from installing it and configuring it, besides the learning curve.
18:10
So he might be in here at some point if he hasn't given up. Hopefully he'll give it another shot.
18:10
I just figured I'd ask on my own behalf for the sake of learning. :P

alkisg: have you made any progress on the named nbd stuff?
19:57
<alkisg>
vagrantc: I think stgraber is working on that - I only wanted to test the cow stuff, named or not wouldn't matter afaik
19:58
I.e. for nbd exports, the whole root to be cow, without aufs,
19:58
and for nfs exports, to have a writable cow nbd as overlay (with aufs)
