John, buddy! :-)
08:09
<johnkershaw>
hi :)
08:09
<Hyperbyte>
How are you?
08:10
<johnkershaw>
good.
08:10
I'm planning to go into school in an hour or so - would you be 'around' to talk me through fixing the network?
08:10
<Hyperbyte>
I will!
08:11
I am at work though, will have things to do left and right.
08:11
<johnkershaw>
I understand :)
08:11
<Hyperbyte>
So don't panic if I'm not here immediately. :)
08:11
<johnkershaw>
at least I'll hear your responses now :)
08:11
<Hyperbyte>
Heh!
08:11
<johnkershaw>
does edubuntu have a text-to-speech IM client?
08:12
<Hyperbyte>
Google is your friend. :)
08:12
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1029385
08:12
First result
08:12
(I searched for 'Pidgin text to speech')
08:13
<johnkershaw>
so… 'no' then? without a bunch of work :(
08:13
I meant 'out of the box'
08:13
<Hyperbyte>
Pidgin is the default IM client nowadays I think, but not sure about Ubuntu.
08:13
<johnkershaw>
ubuntu has a shiny front end, but still too much end-user config methinks :(
08:14
<Hyperbyte>
I don't think what's there on the forum is difficult.
08:14
<johnkershaw>
hahahaha
08:14
<Hyperbyte>
But let's be realistic for a second.
08:14
<johnkershaw>
that's a bit like a brain surgeon commenting on a 'simple procedure'
08:14
<Hyperbyte>
Pidgin makes a sound when a message is received. That should be enough for the average end-user.
08:14
<johnkershaw>
not at all!
08:15
<Hyperbyte>
And the ones that are visually impaired and -need- text-to-speech, will never use a GUI over a terminal program.
08:15
<johnkershaw>
nothing to do with visual impairment
08:15
no more than having a conversation in real life is about hearing a 'ping' when the person has spoken, and you having to stop what you're doing, turn to them and 'read' what they've said
08:16
I'm currently writing an email about something else… but each time you 'speak' I hear in 'in the background', much like I would if you were in the room
08:16
it's a different paradigm
08:16
once you have it, going back to 'ping' feels like madness
08:16
<Hyperbyte>
You don't know me, I hate computerized voices. =D
08:17
But who says it's not possible man. How long have you been Googling on the subject? ;)
08:17
<johnkershaw>
not at all
08:17
<Hyperbyte>
Seems like there's a handy plugin for Pidgin too
08:17
<johnkershaw>
still requires a plugin
08:18
on my adium client I open preferences and tick a checkbox for 'Speak text of messages'
08:18
there is no step 3
08:18
<Hyperbyte>
gspeaker has plugins for telepathy, pidgin, kopete, amsn....
08:18
<johnkershaw>
no plugin, no script
08:18
tick the box
08:18
I'm just saying that, coming from the 'other' end of the world (Mac vs Linux)
08:19
the ubuntu guys are going round in circles trying to decide whether unity is good or bad
08:19
regards user experience
08:20
but they don't 'see' that what's 'normal' to them, in terms of setting up and configuring a machine, app, convo
08:20
is utter complicated madness to mac users (and probably win, for all I know)
08:21
a bit like an old car enthusiast who blithely waves his hand at the 'simple' startup routine he employs to get his 1907 BMW running
08:22
apple work ridiculously hard to make sure things 'seem' very simple
08:22
<Hyperbyte>
Calm down for a second.
08:22
<johnkershaw>
making complicated things straightforward is hard
08:22
lol - s'okay, I'm not ranting
08:22
<Hyperbyte>
There are different OS'es and different flavors of OS'es for this very reason.
08:22
One person prefers 'it just works', the other person prefers having lots of tools available for customization.
08:23
Did you play with LEGO when you were young? ;-)
08:23
<johnkershaw>
indeed - Linux always *was* the purview of gurus
08:23
and that's fine
08:23
but
08:23
linux is now *trying* to be a consumer OS
08:23
<Hyperbyte>
Well "Linux" is a quite general term.
08:23
<johnkershaw>
I'm just saying that their idea of 'consumer-friendly' is not what consumers might assume
08:24
<Hyperbyte>
You mean certain distributions are trying. There lots of Linux variants out there that don't aim for a consumer market at all.
08:24
<johnkershaw>
I'm happy that both ends of the spectrum exist
08:24
<Hyperbyte>
Me too. :)
08:24
<johnkershaw>
there *should* be tiny micro-linuxes that run on a peanut
08:24
;)
08:24
but at the 'consumer' end, it really does have to be no-brain-required
08:25
with the ability to 'open the hood' if you want to go complex
08:25
like, on my mac, I can open Terminal and 'fiddle about'
08:25
in the old Mac OS, that wasn't possible - the gui *was* the OS
08:25
but Mac OS is a monstrously friendly Unix
08:26
<Hyperbyte>
As interesting as I find it to discuss this with you
08:26
<johnkershaw>
sorry - you're busy
08:26
my bad :(
08:26
<Hyperbyte>
No
08:26
<johnkershaw>
signing off til I get to school :)
08:26
<Hyperbyte>
I meant more like... let's not do this in the channel. :-)
08:26
<johnkershaw>
aargh! reverse mistake from earlier!
08:27
<Hyperbyte>
You thought you were /msg'ing? :-D Well at least you didn't say something embarrassing.

due to not being able to get online with the LTSP machine handling DHCP, I've turned the mac server's DHCP service back on. Can I leave the mac in charge of dhcp and set up proxyDHCP on the LTSP machine to handle letting the clients know where to boot from? (NB I don't know anything about proxyDHCP other than the name!)
11:10
<Hyperbyte>
Heya.
11:11
You could use ProxyDHCP, but you could also just configure the Mac DHCP server to point to the LTSP server for netbooting
11:12
This page should help a little: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPWindowsDHCP
11:17
<johnkershaw>
yeah, that was my original intention, but the Mac OS 10.4 server's DHCP management panel doesn't expose those kinds of settings:
11:17
http://web.me.com/jelockwood/MyUtilities/dhcp.html
11:17
apparently 10.5 does... but that's £400 I'm not likely to spend any time soon
11:18
can the settings be changed in terminal?
11:18
presumably the DHCP front-end is literally just a front-end?
11:18
I'll google 'dhcp mac server 10.4 option codes'
11:20
<Hyperbyte>
I know -nothing- about Mac. :)

11:26pmatulis has joined IRC (pmatulis!~peter@64.34.151.178)
11:29
<johnkershaw>
hmm - seems that 10.4 server won't apply/use the DHCP options even if I can write them into the config file.
11:29
<Hyperbyte>
This is Mac you're talking about now, right?
11:29
<johnkershaw>
so... proxyDHCP on the master? if I've got edubuntu 11.04, do I have this dnsmasq thing?
11:30
<Hyperbyte>
Read the wiki page please. :)
11:30
It's all there.
11:30
<johnkershaw>
(I have a Mac server giving out IP addresses to everyone, including the linux machines. I'd like (I think) the LTSP server to THEN handle the DHCP options side of things)
11:31
I read the wiki page, as much as I could understand. what's a karmic?
11:31
<Hyperbyte>
To be super helpful and answer your question anyways, even though it's written down on the Wiki, yes, Ubuntu 11.04 comes with dnsmasq
11:31
Google for 'Ubuntu Karmic' brings this
11:31
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases
11:31
:)
11:32
(I'm trying to get you a bit into the 'do it yourself'-Linux spirit here ;))
11:35Parker955_Away is now known as Parker955
11:38
<johnkershaw>
okay, I'll do my best. on the ltsp machine I've opened a terminal (ctrl-alt-T) and typed
11:38
gksudo gedit /etc/dnsmasq.d/ltsp.conf
11:39
<Hyperbyte>
You could do it the other way around as well by the way... brainwave I just had
11:39
<johnkershaw>
then pasted from the wiki page into the file. anything I need to change in there before I save?
11:39
<Hyperbyte>
Ditch the Mac DHCP server and run it on Linux.
11:40
Doesn't look like it
11:40
<johnkershaw>
I thought about that too, but the mac server is safe and sound in a wall-mounted rack in my room, whilst the ltsp server will be at the mercy of a room of 7/8 year olds (shudder)

folder /etc/dnsmasq.d doesn't exist - create it?
11:45
<markit>
hi johnkershaw
11:46
is not needed for dnsmasq, /etc/dnsmasq.conf is the only one needed
11:46
the dir is for additional config files, AFAIK

In the Connections/Ethernet menu item, what does 'Device not managed' mean? I've got 2 NIC ports on the back of this machine, the built-in port was taped up when I got it, and there's a second 3com card but that's the one that says 'Not managed'. If I connect the built-in port I get internet, but it's flaky & slow. If I connect the 'Not managed' port I get nothing.
12:05
<Hyperbyte>
johnkershaw, 'Not managed' means the port isn't managed by network-manager.
12:05
Basically, there are two ways of configuring network... basic is via /etc/network/interfaces (do a gedit on that file to see)
12:05
But you can also remove the eth0/eth1 lines from there, and restart your system... that disables the basic configuration, and NetworkManager will take the interface under it's management.
12:06
If you then go to Connections/Ethernet you can manage it there.
12:06
It's either one of those though, one or the other. 'Not managed' simply means it's not network manager's interface.
12:06
<johnkershaw>
ah! so if I remove all that stuff we put in the other day (auto eth0... & auto eth0:1... we might be back in business?
12:06
<Hyperbyte>
Dunno.
12:07
Start by commenting it
12:07
<johnkershaw>
can I comment the lines out with #'s ?
12:07
<Hyperbyte>
Put a # in frotn
12:07
*front
12:07
And then reboot, then you can configure all interfaces via NetworkManager... might be easiest for you.

I learned all this only yesterday by the way, thanks to the benevolent alkisg. :)
12:09Parker955_Away is now known as Parker955
12:14
<johnkershaw>
okay - we're getting further! now the clients EITHER drop into the busybox shell or stick at the edubuntu splash screen
12:15
<Hyperbyte>
So you got DHCP proxy working and your network as well? :)
12:15
<johnkershaw>
I *think* so - I have 3 machines sporting correct IP addresses
12:16
how do I know if the proxydhcp options have 'taken' ?
12:16
<Hyperbyte>
If it does a network boot they have taken, trust me.
12:16
<johnkershaw>
(other than they'd boot up!)
12:16
<Hyperbyte>
And the server? Can it access the internet and such?
12:17
<johnkershaw>
righto - how do I check whether the 'master' is listening for clients?
12:18
since they all say "failed to connect to 192.168.0.132' (which ifconfig tells me IS the ltsp machine)
12:18
* 192.168.0.132:2000
12:18
<Hyperbyte>
Your LTSP machine gets it's IP via DHCP?
12:19
You have two options.
12:19
<johnkershaw>
yes
12:19
<Hyperbyte>
1. Set the LTSP server address statically on the server
12:19
<johnkershaw>
(is it important that 2 have the splash screen and 3 have gone into busybox?)
12:19
<Hyperbyte>
2. Configure the Mac DHCP server to give the same IP to the server everytime.
12:19
It's IP must -never- change.
12:19
<johnkershaw>
I can do 1 or 2 no problem
12:20
<Hyperbyte>
Not yet, we'll get to that later.
12:20
:)
12:20
Stick with DHCP then, it'll configure stuff automatically
12:20
Like nameservers and such. Set a static IP for the server in your Mac DHCP server.
12:25
<johnkershaw>
kk - I've set the LTSP's MAC address to get 192.168.0.130 and ifconfig reports it's worked
12:27
<Hyperbyte>
Did you already build a client chroot?
12:27
<johnkershaw>
the clients pick up the server, but can't get an NBD from it?
12:27
I don't recall doing that ;)
12:28
chroot is something to do with chmod, right?
12:28
<Hyperbyte>
Do ls /opt/ltsp/i386/
12:28
Is there a filesystem there?
12:28
<johnkershaw>
on client or server?
12:28
<Hyperbyte>
No - chroot has nothing to do with chmod.
12:28
Server.
12:29
<johnkershaw>
ls /opt/ltsp/i386 returns a bunch of directories (bin, dev, home, media, opt, root, sleinux, sys, usr, boot, etc, lib, mnt, proc, sbin, , srv, tmp, var)
12:29
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
12:29
!sshkeys | echo johnkershaw
12:29
<ltsp>
johnkershaw sshkeys: If you changed your LTSP server IP on Ubuntu, your clients will be unable to login. To fix this, you need to run: sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys && sudo ltsp-update-image.

12:33
<Hyperbyte>
Probably didn't solve your current problem, but yes, reboot a client.
12:33
<johnkershaw>
failed to connect to ...0.130:2000
12:33
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
12:33
<johnkershaw>
(I'm saving this convo for later, btw)
12:34
<Hyperbyte>
johnkershaw, so does http://irclogs.ltsp.org/
12:34
Port 2000 is what NBD runs on (network block device)... it's the networked filesystem for the clients, which you just saw in /opt/ltsp/i386/
12:34
<johnkershaw>
awesome! I'm saving that link then ;)
12:35
<Hyperbyte>
See if you can connect to NBD locally on the server, type 'telnet localhost 2000'. If it doesn't timeout, use ctrl+] and 'quit' to leave telnet
12:35
<johnkershaw>
so the server HAS it, but it's not giving it to the clients?
12:35
refused
12:35
<Hyperbyte>
Okay, then the problem lies in NBD.
12:36

johnkershaw 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..
12:36
<Hyperbyte>
Put your /etc/inetd.conf there.
12:40
If you need help doing this, say so.
12:41
<johnkershaw>
I've lost internet on the server again :(
12:41
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
12:42
Do you have a USB stick?
12:42
<johnkershaw>
I can ping the mac server and the gateway, but not google.com
12:42
<Hyperbyte>
Oh
12:42
So you could send the file via network to some computer and put it on pastebin?
12:43
Because apart from 'cat /etc/inetd.conf', I'll want the output of 'ifconfig' and 'ip route show'
12:43
You can put all these in one paste.
12:43
Run those commands in a terminal, select what you wanna copy, and then press middle mouse button in a text editor
12:43
<johnkershaw>
I'll try usb
12:44
<Hyperbyte>
It'll paste them. From there you can save the file on your network or USB stick, and upload it.
12:45
<johnkershaw>
what's the filepath to my usb stick from terminal?
12:45
got it
12:46
/ media
12:46
<Hyperbyte>
:)
12:47
By the way, you are aware of the current LTSP support conditions, right?
12:48
They should've handed you a copy of those to sign when you joined this channel.
12:49
<johnkershaw>
erm, no?
12:50
<Hyperbyte>
No?
12:50
It's a very long and tedious legal document, but basically says that you're only elligible for LTSP support if you stick around in the channel afterwards and help others.
12:50* Hyperbyte coughs. :)
12:52
<johnkershaw>
http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=KReg6EwL
12:53
<Hyperbyte>
Did you modify anything inside /opt/ltsp/i386/?
12:53
<johnkershaw>
I'm pretty good with helping ppl - but it'd be nice to know something!
12:54
don't think so
12:54
<Hyperbyte>
Well that's what we're working on here! ;-) Plus I've found that sticking around here is a great way to pick up lots of useful knowledge. :)
12:54
Okay...
12:55
2000 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/nbdrootd /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img
12:55
Add that line to /etc/inetd.conf
12:55
Dunno why it isn't there.
12:55
Maybe run
12:55
ltsp-build-client --arch i386 first
12:55
That rebuilds the entire LTSP clients
12:55
-s
12:55
Might be a good idea, it should automatically do the inetd.conf stuff for you
12:56
You'll have to rm -rf /opt/ltsp/i386/ first, by the way
12:56
(that deletes the entire directory)
12:57
<johnkershaw>
maybe enough for today - wife and child have arrived and they want lunch :(
12:57
I'll pick up when I get back from holiday
12:58
<Hyperbyte>
When is that? :)
12:58
<johnkershaw>
17th
12:58

okay - trying the rebuild!

will I still need to add the 2000 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/nbdrootd /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img
13:15
or will the rebuild take care of that?

<johnkershaw>
does the line start at '2000...' ?
13:21
<Hyperbyte>
Yes. There should be a 2001 line as well
13:22
There isn't... weird... I wonder what makes the inetd.conf file
13:22
Either way.
13:22
No, wait - now I'm confused. You don't need a 2001 line. Just put the 2000 line there on the bottom, if it isn't there yet... that should be it.

the client boots to a default ltsp login screen, not edubuntu

but presumably that's no big deal to sort (when I get back from hols, if I'm not divorced!)
13:26
thanks for everything :)
13:27
<Hyperbyte>
No!
13:27
LTSP login screen is what you want, not Ubuntu login screen.
13:27
<johnkershaw>
oh. then I have what I want!
13:27
<Hyperbyte>
By the way, the ltsp-build-client --i386 only built a thin client now, not a fat client. I forgot you were running fat clients. But we can sort that out later.
13:28
<johnkershaw>
it's booted into 'ladybird' screen now, using my 'tech' login
13:28
right - better go.
13:28

Go! :)

<pedronveloso>
does LTSP support playing music cds ?
15:26
normal cds mount well, music cds do appear in gnome, but no application seems to be able to recognize them as music cds
15:27
<Hyperbyte>
pedronveloso, LTSP uses ltspfs for mounting filesystems on the client (such as USB disks, CD-ROMs etc)
15:28
Basically it translates local filesystems over network. I think there's a good chance it's not compatible with music CD's, but someone will smythe me down and correct me if that's the case.
15:29
I *think* (and I emphasize *think* here because I'm just theorizing, never tried any of this)... but I think it might work with localapps.
15:29
<pedronveloso>
humm.. localapps.. hate setting them :P
15:29
hehe
15:29
<Hyperbyte>
If you install a CD player as localapp in the chroot, and then run it with ltsp-localapps <program> it might work.
15:29
pedronveloso, why?
15:29
<pedronveloso>
burning cds doesnt seem to work either :\
15:30
well, localapps seem to fail to load sometimes. at least Firefox does, don't know the cause exactly as the problem seems arbitrary
15:31
well, thanks for the info. I've search on google and came across the same information on an old post, I came here because I wondered if it was solved already or if a workaround existed
15:31
I'll try localapps as a soltution
15:31
thanks for help Hyperbyte

hi alkisg :) not ltsp related, but I'm so depressed... kubuntu 11.04, dvi-vga adapter, after grub menu screeb becomes black and never comes back. Ssh in it shows is alive, not got useful info from X.log. If I use dvi directly works. Of course, ActiveBoard has only VGA
16:35
<Hyperbyte>
DVI-VGA adapters are nothing but trouble.
16:35
<markit>
any idea? Just a shot in the dark is fine too... Intel Intel GMA X4500
16:36
Hyperbyte: kubuntu 10.10 on same hardware and adapter worked fine
16:36
but I have to use 11.04 since some packages are only for that version
16:37
if I boot from livecd it works, even if at 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024
16:37
<alkisg>
And when did it stop working? Right after the initial installation?
16:38
Or you tried changing stuff, e.g. putting vga=xx in grub or other experiments?
16:39
<markit>
alkisg: well, is 2 days I'm fighting, I don't even remember... probably never, I installed with "get updated package" flag
16:39cyberorg has left IRC (cyberorg!~cyberorg@opensuse/member/Cyberorg, Ping timeout: 240 seconds)

<markit>
but since it does not have openssh-server, probably worked until I did a "full-upgrade"
16:40
I have not modified grub, I tried to remove -video-intel package but does not use framebuffer
16:40
ksm disturbs vesa drivers
16:41
and I'm not an expert of X, ksm, etc stuff

If the live cd worked, I wonder why it broke on upgrade

wondering if a hdmi to vga adapter exists
16:42
<Hyperbyte>
I think so
16:42
I think it'll give the same problem.
16:43
I'm no expert, least of all with this, but I think the DVI adapter confuses Linux with the modes it can set for the monitor.
16:46
<markit>
so I could put a xorg.conf with the right settings?
16:46
well, I've no idea of the parameters I could put there
16:47
would be nice being able to boot with dvi, have a command that dumps the current config and use it with vga
16:48
to be sincere is not completery black
16:48
I've a 3 cm line of blue pixels on the topper left

16:49

hdmi to vga is not a passive adapter and in my experience can't do widescreen res
16:51
it's not ideal
16:51
hdmi to dvi is good, i think you need dual link dvi though
16:56
<Hyperbyte>
Personally, I think you're better off buying a screen with the right connectors. :)
16:56
But that might be rubbing salt in it, sorry.

<Damianos>
just out of curiosity, when manually installing LTSP onto a system, how does ltsp know where to get the OS files from when using the --dist option?
17:32
<dave429>
when running ltsp-build-client I get that libpopt0 is corrupted on one server. The other servers do not get this error. Very confused. I am behind a proxy.
17:45
<knipwim>
Damianos: is --dist only used in Ubuntu and Debian?
17:46
<Damianos>
Might be - I saw it on the ubuntuLTSP wiki
17:47
I'm checking out a new ubuntu variant called elementaryOS. nice UI and really light weight. Thought it might be perfect for thin clients
17:48
so I'm testing it out on a VM right now and I can't log in. Had some hiccups with the ltsp-build-client phase
17:49
<knipwim>
Damianos: i see the $DIST option being called in the Ubuntu 010-debootstrap plugin
17:49
used as an argument for the debootstrap command
17:50
so probably the debootstrap command figures it out
17:50
<Damianos>
ok great

it appears to be distro specific

and moved there in a time when Debian and Ubuntu were the only distros
