I'm having a problem loading a thin client network boot with ltsp on ubuntu server 9.10. The client see's pxe and installs vmlinuz and initrm.img, but it hangs with flashing cursoe after 'Ready'. Yesterday, I thoguht it was because I didn't have a desktop environment for it to boot into, but after installing ubuntu-desktop, it still has the same issue

Test
08:35
Good Morning, anybody in the room who has some experience with HP T5510 Thin Clients for LTSP5 on Ubuntu 10.04LTS?
08:37
<alkisg>
ubunt1: ask your question more specifically, it's possible that people here have experience with that, but they won't answer till they see your real question
08:37
E.g. "it won't start X, error message is ..."
08:39
<ubunt1>
problem is that it shows up LDM's background image but the actual input elements like login entry field and the comand button in the lower left corner are invisible. yet they are present because if I click on the place where the button normally is display the "restart, shutdown etc." menu shows up just normal ...
08:40
<alkisg>
!nomodeset
08:40
<ltsp>
alkisg: nomodeset: Unfortunately, Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) doesn't work well with some cards. To disable it, open /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default and replace quiet splash with nomodeset ..
08:40
<alkisg>
Try that, maybe it helps
08:42
<ubunt1>
great, than my ideas after reading through all that doc's were not fully wrong, but just wanted to ask the experts before deciding between playing around with XSERVER settings and the boot options, do I need ltsp-update-image after changing to "nomodeset"
08:43
<alkisg>
ubunt1: I proposed nomodeset because it's the easiest first step, if that doesn't work then yeah you'd need to play with XSERVER etc
08:43
No, ltsp-update-image isn't needed
08:44
<Hyperbyte>
!ltsp-update-image
08:44
<ltsp>
Hyperbyte: ltsp-update-image: If you use NBD (e.g. Ubuntu), every time you change something in your chroot (e.g. /opt/ltsp/i386), you need to run ltsp-update-image and reboot the thin clients for the changes to take effect.

<alkisg>
Hey Neo
08:45
<ubunt1>
okay thank you for that so far ... and sorry for that "dumb" Live-CD user nickname. next time when getting back here I will take time to register a correct nickname. And I'm sure I will get back here soon ... BYE for now
08:45
<Hyperbyte>
Emperor! How are you today, exalted one?
08:45
Bye ubunt1 ;-)

Still trying to avoid delphi programming... :D But I need to dive in :(
09:10* Hyperbyte gives alkisg a push start
09:11* muppis gives a kick start. ;)
09:12* Hyperbyte ties alkisg to a rocket pointed at the Delphi IDE and ignites
09:13
<muppis>
:D
09:33
<alkisg>
Ouch, /me crashes his head over the Delphi IDE and heads for a hospital

highvoltage, yeah, I'm sure if alkisg would crash his head painfully into a piece of software (?) and would have to rush to the hospital to save his life, he'd come on IRC first to tell us all about it. ;-)
