<garymc>
how do I undo this command :gconftool-2 -s --type bool /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager true
08:11
<Hyperbyte>
Nothing has internet?
08:11
What does that mean?
08:12
<garymc>
thin clients have no internet and dhcp isnt starting automaticly
08:12
*fat clients
08:13
<Hyperbyte>
Sounds like a network manager problem.
08:13
Type service network-manager status
08:14
<garymc>
network-manager start/running, process 739
08:15
I just installed Google Chrome and docky
08:15
now ive uninstalled them
08:15
:S
08:15
no one got internet in work
08:15
<Hyperbyte>
Not a solution.
08:15
<garymc>
no
08:15
<Hyperbyte>
I told you before, if something breaks - fix it, don't reinstall/revert.
08:16

08:17

Okay
08:17
That's good
08:17
<garymc>
:(
08:17
<Hyperbyte>
Type 'ifconfig'... everything look normal?
08:17
<garymc>
yes
08:17
<Hyperbyte>
Interface names are correct?
08:18
<garymc>
yes
08:18

eth0, eth1?
08:18
Okay...
08:18
<garymc>
yes

<Hyperbyte>
Type iptables -L
08:18

08:18
Also

that returns a 1
08:19

My mistake. :)
08:20
<garymc>
what mistake?
08:20
<Hyperbyte>
Needs to be 'sudo'
08:20
<garymc>
what bit
08:21
<Hyperbyte>
10:19 <Hyperbyte> sudo iptables -L
08:21
<garymc>
yes i done that
08:21
<Hyperbyte>
gary@ubuntu64bit:~$ iptables -L
08:21
<garymc>
oh ok
08:22
http://pastebin.com/YfvhBdCr
08:24
i dont understand why they have all lost internet connection
08:24
and dhcp failed to start on reboot
08:26
<alkisg>
How did your fat clients boot without a dhcp server?!
08:27
<garymc>
they never, i restarted it when i saw they would not boot
08:27markit has joined IRC (markit!~marco@88-149-177-66.staticnet.ngi.it)
08:27
<alkisg>
And now the problem is that the server has internet, and the clients no?
08:27
<garymc>
exactly
08:27
im having a panick attack right now, calls coming in and Ive broke the server
08:27
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, the script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ we created doesn't execute.
08:27
<alkisg>
Maybe your broke your NAT/Masquerading on the server? How did you do that?
08:27map7_ has left IRC (map7_!~map7@ppp118-209-183-61.lns20.mel6.internode.on.net, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
08:28
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, ls -al /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/
08:28
<garymc>
i just installed chormium and docky
08:28
I have since removed both
08:29
<Hyperbyte>
Paste line with the dhcpfix file we made.
08:29
And stop panicking.
08:29
<garymc>
http://pastebin.com/BeB0QdLA
08:29
ok
08:29
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 186 2011-09-09 14:04 02dhcpfix
08:30
<Hyperbyte>
Okay, cat the 02dhcpfix file
08:30
<garymc>
god, how
08:30
<Hyperbyte>
How? cat 02dhcpfix ?
08:30
<garymc>
cat /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/02dhcpfix
08:30
?
08:31
<Hyperbyte>
Yes please.
08:31
<garymc>
http://pastebin.com/QKwBqH8Q
08:32
<Hyperbyte>
Run /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat
08:32
Internet will work.
08:32
This doesn't actually solve your problems I think.
08:32
But at least you can stop panicking and look at this problem at a more suitable time.
08:32
<garymc>
so type: Run /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat
08:33
<Hyperbyte>
sudo as well please
08:33
sudo /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat
08:33
<garymc>
ok
08:33
ill test now
08:33
cool internet is back on
08:33
phew
08:34
I need to look at this, why would chromium or docky break my whole system?
08:34
<Hyperbyte>
Okay. Now what happened, is that there went something wrong with NetworkManager... the script didn't start.
08:35
<garymc>
ok , ill tell you what I done
08:35
<Hyperbyte>
We made a script, the 02dhcpfix, which starts dhcpd and sets up internet connection sharing
08:35
<garymc>
I come into office 30 mins early
08:35
I installed DOCKY and CHROMIUM
08:35
<Hyperbyte>
So something you did, has made it so the NetworkManager script doesn't start.
08:35
It didn't 'break your whole system', just the NetworkManager bit.
08:36
<garymc>
Docky didnt work correctly so I googled a fix, I found this code into terminal: gconftool-2 -s --type bool /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager true
08:36
<Hyperbyte>
Keep in mind, if you reboot, it'll probably be back to the basics, and require manual dhcpd start and execution of the iptables command I just gave you.
08:36
<garymc>
then docky appeared ok
08:36
damn
08:37
<Hyperbyte>
First things first.
08:37
How did you install Chromium?
08:38
<garymc>
i went into server room and logged in. and went to software center in menu
08:38
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
08:38
<garymc>
i have sinced removed both though
08:38
:(
08:38
<Hyperbyte>
This, you are never gonna do again.
08:38
<garymc>
no
08:38
<Hyperbyte>
From now you will use 'apt-get' from the command line.
08:38
<garymc>
ok
08:39
why am i so stupid
08:39
<Hyperbyte>
If you want to install something, 'apt-get install <programname>'
08:39
However!
08:39
<garymc>
ok
08:39
<Hyperbyte>
Keep in mind, when running thin/fat clients, the software for the clients is in /opt/ltsp/
08:39
<garymc>
ok
08:39
<Hyperbyte>
With thin clients, everything runs on the server, so if you install something on the server, it'll be available on the clients
08:40
With fat clients, everything runs on the clients. So if you want Chrome on the fat clients, you need to install it in /opt/ltsp/ - not on the server.
08:40
<garymc>
ok, that I dont know how to
08:40map7_ has joined IRC (map7_!~map7@ppp118-209-183-61.lns20.mel6.internode.on.net)
08:41
<garymc>
So I need to fix my problem with dhcp and nat? then look at installing programs in opt/ltsp
08:41
<Hyperbyte>
Yessir.
08:41
Also, you need to learn to do these things via command line, not via the GUI on the server. This will make things a lot easier for you.
08:42ogra_ has left IRC (ogra_!~ogra@p5098ed03.dip0.t-ipconnect.de, Excess Flood)
08:42
<Hyperbyte>
Navigate to /opt/ltsp/amd64/ and type 'ls'
08:42
Don't pastebin it by the way, I know what it says
08:42
<garymc>
ok i will never use gui on server again
08:42
<Hyperbyte>
I just want you to see the whole filesystem there, the copy of Ubuntu inside your server's Ubuntu, which the fat clients use
08:43
<garymc>
ok
08:43
i see
08:44ogra_ has joined IRC (ogra_!~ogra@p5098ed03.dip0.t-ipconnect.de)
08:45
<Hyperbyte>
The /opt/ltsp/amd64/ OS, is made into a network image. This image is stored in /opt/ltsp/images/. Have a look there as well, see the image file.
08:45
<garymc>
so thats what the fAT clients use
08:45
amd64.img
08:45
<Hyperbyte>
If you modify or install anything in /opt/ltsp/amd64/, you need to run ltsp-update-image to update the image in /opt/ltsp/images/
08:45
<garymc>
ok
08:46
<Hyperbyte>
So that's how the client OS works.
08:46
<alkisg>
And to get "into" that fat os to install things, you run: sudo ltsp-chroot
08:46
<Hyperbyte>
Now about actually installing something in the client
08:47
<alkisg>
Or better yet, sudo ltsp-chroot -c -p
08:47ddave7 has left IRC (ddave7!~Miranda@109-183-1-25.tmcz.cz, Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier. http://miranda-im.org)
08:47
<garymc>
ok
08:47
<Hyperbyte>
You can use something called "chroot" to change the /opt/ltsp/amd64/ into your primary OS for your terminal. Basically, it logs you in to the client.
08:47
The ltsp-chroot script sets it up for you automagically.
08:48
<garymc>
then when in there : sudo apt-get chromium
08:48
etc
08:48
then when donw : sudo ltsp-update-image
08:48
<Hyperbyte>
:)
08:48
You are learning fast, grasshopper. :)
08:48
<garymc>
:)
08:49
<Hyperbyte>
It's apt-get install chromium though, but those are details.
08:49
<garymc>
ok but do I need to be in the /opt/ltsp/amd64/ folder?
08:49
before apt-get install chromium
08:49
?
08:49
<Hyperbyte>
Type just 'apt-get' for more info on the terminal application manager.
08:49
<NeonLicht>
apt-get install chromium-browser
08:49
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, the 'ltsp-chroot' commands does that.
08:49
<NeonLicht>
chromium only is a game.
08:49
<garymc>
ok
08:50
so what about my reboot stuff
08:50
eg, dhcp and nat
08:50
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, ltsp-chroot makes /opt/ltsp/amd64/ into /
08:50
<garymc>
is it an easy fix, or is this gonna be a ball ache
08:50
<Hyperbyte>
Try this:
08:50
ls /opt/
08:50
ltsp-chroot
08:50
ls /opt/
08:50
exit
08:51
Second time there's no /opt/ folder, because you're inside /opt/. :)
08:51
<garymc>
ltsp-chroot : no command found
08:51
<Hyperbyte>
whereis ltsp-chroot
08:51

08:52
<Hyperbyte>
That's not a lot.
08:52
<garymc>
thats all it says
08:52
<alkisg>
That's 11.04, right?
08:52
<garymc>
no 10.4.3
08:52
I think
08:52
<alkisg>
Ah, I thought you had 11.04
08:52
<garymc>
11.04 is BETA ?
08:52
<alkisg>
It might be in /usr/share/ltsp/scripts/ltsp-chroot in your case, but it's a little old
08:52
Of course it's NOT beta
08:52
<garymc>
ok
08:53
<Hyperbyte>
ls /usr/share/ltsp/scripts/ltsp-chroot
08:53
<alkisg>
Put it in pastebin if you find it
08:53
So that we see how old it is
08:53
<garymc>
http://pastebin.com/GTuRRDQF
08:54

08:55

Nah, ignore that, it's rather old

You can download a new one as the wiki here says: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FatClients#Further_chroot_customizations

09:22
Copy paste the 'download file' link into your terminal
09:22
And put 'wget' in front of it
09:22
So wget http://
09:22
etc
09:23
<garymc>
in the terminal i suppose
09:23
<Hyperbyte>
That's what I just said, yes. :P
09:24
<alkisg>
Remember to put quotes around it
09:24
wget 'url'
09:25
<garymc>
i never
09:25
:(
09:25
<alkisg>
Not wget url, because it may contain special shell characters
09:25
<garymc>
shugger
09:25
i already did it
09:25
how to undo?
09:25
<alkisg>
Fortunately the link you downloaded doesn't have special characters
09:25
So ok go on :)
09:26
<garymc>
phew
09:26
<alkisg>
(previously launchpad used special characters and people downloading with wget got "not found" pages :))
09:32
<garymc>
hmm I cant do this: chmod +x /usr/sbin/ltsp-chroot
09:33
<alkisg>
sudo
09:33
<garymc>
done that
09:33
<alkisg>
You did: sudo chmod + x /usr/sbin/ltsp-chroot
09:33
?
09:34
what was the output?

10:16
<Hyperbyte>
You must be.
10:16
What's the URL you're using?
10:16
<garymc>
here is the URL and WGET im using : wget http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/view/head:/server/scripts/debian/ltsp-chroot
10:16
<Hyperbyte>
That's the view page...
10:17
<garymc>
right, i cant find the url your tlaking about
10:17
:S
10:17
<Hyperbyte>
You need the url behind the "download file" link on that page.
10:17
<garymc>
this one: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/view/head:/server/scripts/debian/ltsp-chroot

so am i goona break if I sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
10:22
<Hyperbyte>
You shouldn't.
10:22
<garymc>
Ok well I have chroot now.
10:22
<Hyperbyte>
Not sure if the apt-get command works immediately.
10:22
<garymc>
ok
10:22
but I need to fix my first probs... yes?
10:23
<Hyperbyte>
Also, yes - but those you can't do while people are working.
10:24
I think if you reboot it will all be fine. So test that at first possibility, and if it doesn't, manually execute the commands in the 02dhcpfix script
10:24
<garymc>
So you think If I reboot now, the system shoudl work fine?
10:24
if not I need to run
10:24
sudo service dhcp3-server restart
10:24
then
10:25
sudo /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat
10:25
<Hyperbyte>
Yes.
10:25

then we are done

10:29
and I cant install any software like chrome
10:30
<Hyperbyte>
You can't?
10:32
<garymc>
no, you said leave my workers be :s
10:32
work without inceident
10:33
<Hyperbyte>
Yeah, for restarting server.
10:33
As for modifying things inside the ltsp chroot, those will only become permanent once your run ltsp-update-image... and even then people can continue working in the old image, until they reboot their clients.
10:33
<garymc>
coolo
10:33
<Hyperbyte>
You could also create a copy of the chroot before you start messing around, a backup
10:33
<garymc>
lets install
10:34
i have a free fat client to test with
10:34
<Hyperbyte>
cp -a amd64 amd64.backup
10:34
<garymc>
do i have to be in the folder before running that command?
10:34

this one/opt/ltsp/
10:34

10:35
<garymc>
how do I get out of chroot
10:36
<Hyperbyte>
exit
10:38
<garymc>
ok made a backup
10:38
so shoud; I apt-get now?

<garymc>
does that take a while?
10:49

10:49

yes it does
10:49
I should have installed more. What about Docky for LTSP is it worth the hassle

It should take a whole of 20 seconds or so.
10:51

no its still riunning

ltsp-update-image

You can set it once, for all users.

where do I set it?
11:54
<Hyperbyte>
Gnome uses a system called "gconf" to store all settings. It has per-user settings, global default settings and global mandatory settings.
11:54
You set it using gconftool-2, but you need to read up on it a lot before you start messing around with it.
11:54

ok, i wont use it

i'm having a problem with the initramfs, reporting an other MAC adress for the NIC. this leads to not getting a lease since the dhcp offers are static

in the dhcp servers log i can see the first dhcp lease for the PXE client, and after loading the kernel and startint the initramfs i can see the 2nd dhcp request from a different MAC adress, but i know it's the same PC
11:59
<alkisg>
You see a different mac address there?
11:59
<junkY_San>
yes
11:59
<alkisg>
Or are you talking about the client identifier?
11:59
<junkY_San>
mac
12:00
<alkisg>
Which dhcp server are you using?
12:00
<junkY_San>
it seems like random generated by the initramfs, because everytime i reset the client it's a different adress
12:01
dhcpd3, but i don't think it's a server related problem
12:01
<alkisg>
The older udhcp version did indeed create a random XID, but that's a client identifier, not a mac address
12:01
Seeing a different mac address... is very weird to be client related
12:01
<junkY_San>
i have manually updated to the latest busybox and udhcpc
12:01
<alkisg>
Also, which distro/version?
12:02

12:02ddave7 has joined IRC (ddave7!~Miranda@171-49-13-46.tmcz.cz)

Hyperbyte, the first one is the address of the NIC, and the 2nd one changes everytime

Which distro/version are you using? And, which udhcpc version?

alkisg, ubuntu 10.04.3 on the ltsp server

8.04.4 LTS on the dhcp/bootp server

alkisg, i'm afraid the configfile you mentioned has no effect in this boot-environment
12:13
<alkisg>
When the client doesn't boot, does it give you an initramfs prompt?
12:13
<junkY_San>
no
12:13
udhcpc blocks the boot process
12:13
<Hyperbyte>
The second mac address is made up. It doesn't belong to any vendor.
12:14
That's very interesting.
12:14
<alkisg>
The second mac address is probably a dhcpd bug
12:14
<junkY_San>
i have two types of client here
12:14
<alkisg>
Not a client bug, the udhcp on the client sends a random xid, and the old dhcpd in 8.04 gets mixed up and reports it as a mac address
12:14
But anyway that's not important
12:14
The udhcpc problem is a known problem, but 2 things are needed to get around it
12:15
A newer udhcpc or busybox version, and a newer ltsp_nbd
12:15
Either those, or just "ipappend 3" in pxelinux.cfg/default
12:16
(03:12:27 μμ) junkY_San: alkisg, i'm afraid the configfile you mentioned has no effect in this boot-environment ==> it should have effect if you configure your 8.04 server to point to your ltsp server as "next-server", the tftp server.
12:16
Or if you change the pxelinux.cfg/default file on 8.04

Can you pastebin your modified 8.04 pxelinux.cfg/default file?
12:37
<junkY_San>
i'll tell you a little bit more about the boot process
12:38
the client displays grub, where i have added an entry for the new ltsp system i installed
12:38
grub.cfg is also on 8.04
12:40
so i can't see any config file or command line which tells the client to use that 'default' file

udhcpc --version isn't an option

The problem is that you upgraded udhcpc without updating ltsp

And ltsp still uses the old code, which makes your new udhcpc break

I think stale sessions are being left on my Lucid servers, post-logout. I had removed gnome-watchdog in favor of the LDM_LIMIT_ONE_SESSION{PROMPT} =true settings. I may want to return to -watchdog because with multiple servers and filesystem synchronization scripts, it's important that the users not be logged into more than one server at once. Is there anything that would prevent gnome-watchdog from working on 10.04?
13:06

Blinny, you're asking if gnome-watchdog actually works on Ubuntu 10.04?

and exactly that was the problem. thanks again alkisg
14:00
can i change the location of the lts.conf file?
14:02
<alkisg>
It's deduced from the location of the "boot filename", sent by the dhcp server in reply to the second dhcp request
14:02
Where do you want to put it?
14:02
I.e. a symlink doesn't suffice/
14:02
?
14:02
<junkY_San>
first of all i want it to be found
14:03
it has no effect
14:03
it's in the same dir als the kernel and initrd
14:03
*as
14:03
<alkisg>
On your 8.04 server?
14:03
<junkY_San>
yes
14:04
<alkisg>
Can you paste your /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf ?
14:04
<junkY_San>
it's really huge
14:04
<alkisg>

filename "/boot/grub/grub2pxe";
14:05
ah i see
14:05
<alkisg>
So put it there
14:05
/boot/grub/lts.conf
14:05
Which grub version are you using?
14:05
<junkY_San>
in the previous setup it was possible to give the path via parameter LTSFILE
14:05
1.96
14:06
<alkisg>
Did you follow some how-to to make it for netbooting?
14:06
<junkY_San>
i have not configured this network
14:07
<alkisg>
ok
14:07
There's no "LTSFILE" in the ltsp upstream code whatsoever
14:08
<junkY_San>
seems like it got removed
14:08
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, what are you booting via grub anyways?
14:08
Just LTSP, or several things?
14:09
<junkY_San>
ltsp. the different entrys point to different lts.conf files for different rdp-servers
14:09
<Hyperbyte>
I would get rid of it completely, if it were my system.
14:09
As well as the static dhcp IP addresses
14:10
lts.conf supports per-mac-address settings.
14:10
<alkisg>
Why have a boot time menu for rdp servers, instead of a connection-time menu (later on, just before connecting)
14:10
<Hyperbyte>
You can get rid of grub and static IP's, and still have per-client settings.
14:10
<junkY_San>
it's not for different clients, but for different purpose
14:11
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, you said the only difference is in RDP server settings.
14:11
<junkY_San>
i'm in a university, and the we/students are supposed to connect to different server's from every lab
14:11
<Hyperbyte>
If that's the case, then you can do that via the RDP* settings in lts.conf. And those settings you can configure per-client.
14:11
<junkY_San>
Hyperbyte, one entry connects to a real ltsp server, not rdesktop
14:12
<alkisg>
Sure, but why reboot just to connect to a different rdp server? Put a connection-time menu for that.
14:12
Logoff + directly connect to the other server you want without rebooting
14:12
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, no problem. You can configure LDM (LTSP's display/login manager) to either use RDP or LTSP, based on MAC address of clients.
14:12
<junkY_San>
alkisg, would be much better in my opinion too. this is just how i found it.
14:13
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, you could even configure them all with hotkeys. Like press ALT+F7 for lab1, ALT+F8 for lab 2...
14:13
<alkisg>
ok
14:13
<junkY_San>
Hyperbyte, it has to be possible to connect to every server from every client
14:14
Hyperbyte, the hotkey thing was also the first thing i thought of, this is why i'm trying to use the lts.conf ;)
14:15
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, there's also a "menu" script for LTSP... I believe it can handle all your requirements.
14:15
Graphical selection menu for different sessions
14:15Blinny has left IRC (Blinny!~Blinny@www.peopleplaces.org, Quit: Leaving.)
14:15
<Hyperbyte>
Well not really 'graphical', but more graphical than hotkeys. :P
14:15
<junkY_San>
that would be great
14:15
alkisg, putting lts.conf to /boot/grub/ on the server doesn't work either
14:16
<alkisg>
junkY_San: if you enable tftp logging, you'll see the path that the client asks for
14:16
Or, paste your dhcpd.conf so that we can see the structure
14:16
Because if that "filename" that you pasted was inside some "if", it would mean different things.
14:17
<junkY_San>
it's the filename defined for the group the client is in the dhcp conf
14:17
i'll paste some lines
14:17
<alkisg>
The group of clients is defined by what? vendor id? mac address?
14:18
<junkY_San>
manually by MAC-addresses
14:18
<alkisg>
Because at the second dhcp request, the vendor identifier is no longer "PXEClient"
14:19
<junkY_San>
there are a lot of commented line in that config file. someone had fun there..
14:20
you mentioned tftp-logging. server sided?
14:20
<alkisg>
One other guess is to try to put it in the tftp root
14:20
E.g. /var/lib/tftpboot/lts.conf
14:20
And a final one is to put it in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf, even if your kernel isn't there
14:20
Tftp logging is done at 8.04, yeah
14:21
But reading dhcpd.conf is the correct method
14:21
<Hyperbyte>
junkY_San, you need to get rid of GRUB and static IP addresses. Trust me on this one. Even if you get this working, and I have no doubt you will, you still need to get with the program a bit. There's much better ways of doing what you're doing now, which much less configuration and maintenance required.
14:21
*which -> with
14:22
<junkY_San>
i agree on that
14:26
this is the relevant part of the script
14:26
http://pastebin.com/PsmKKgf7

alkisg, is thie $filename the one you mentioned before?

14:28
<alkisg>
junkY_San: yes, that's the part of the code that I was referring to
14:29
The client gets that from /tmp/net-eth0.conf, which is written by udhcpc
14:29
Why? The code shouldn't matter, your configuration does though, and we haven't seen it yet...

I can imagine after seeing that file!
14:35
<alkisg>
Haha :D
14:36
How are the clients groupped into group "PXE - BOOT clients"? By just mentioning their mac address inside host declarations?
14:37
<Hyperbyte>
It'd be quicker to just make everything dynamic and get rid of GRUB than to even debug this I think.
14:37* Hyperbyte will shut up now...
14:39
<junkY_San>
i'd like to clean up this mess, but i don't know how many stations actually use this
14:40
but i think it's safe to disable grub

You could just set one client with boot options directly into the LTSP server, passing by GRUB alltogether... if you get that working as expected, you can slowly move the clients one by one. :)

Test along the way.

Those two you want in dhcpd.conf for booting directly from the LTSP server
15:06
Where 192.168.100.2 is your LTSP server address, naturally.
15:06
<junkY_San>
yes i got that for one client so far ;)
15:07
mh well not exactly, the files are still on the dhcp server..
15:07

If you put next-server <your LTSP server IP> it should fetch them from the ftpd on the LTSP server

If I have a fat client I will need to install sabayon on the fat client too right?
18:16
and have a sudo user in the chroot
18:16
to make changes?
18:16
<alkisg>
You almost never need sudo users on fat clients
18:16
You'd need to transfer the sabayon settings to the chroot

alkisg, we didn't modify any init scripts

Be careful, network manager's dispatcher sets up iptables and dhcpd
21:40
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: sure I was just joking... did you run update-rc.d for anything?
21:41
<Hyperbyte>
All you need to do is get network-manager to run... if you rely on /etc/network/interfaces networking you'll need to make iptables and dhcpd part of init scripts properly, which have bugs on his system...

21:44
<alkisg>
But what part of ubuntu is asking for that address?
21:44
<garymc>
router gives out DHCP
21:44
<alkisg>
You don't have an /etc/network/interfaces entry, and no network manager connection for eth0
21:44
<garymc>
I dont know to be honest
21:44
<alkisg>
So, your server doesn't ask for an address for eth0

21:44
<alkisg>
You need to create a system connection for eth0, within network manager
21:45
<garymc>
before I assigned the Static IP, it had a DHCP address of 192.168.1.81
21:45
<alkisg>
garymc: do you login graphically on the server?
21:45
With a GUI and all?
21:45
<garymc>
graphicly?
21:45
<alkisg>
In gnome
21:45
<garymc>
I have done yes
21:45
<alkisg>
Did you configure network manager from there?
21:45
<garymc>
EG monitor and keyboard plugge dinto the actual server?
21:46
<alkisg>
sorry phone...
21:46
<garymc>
As far as I remeber yes I did
21:48
<alkisg>
garymc: what user account did you use? I need to peek in his connections directory
21:48
To see if you made a user connection instead of a system connection
21:48
(and move it to system connections)
21:48
<garymc>
gary
21:48
<alkisg>
ok, looking...

garymc: how do you know that network manager doesn't start on boot?
21:54
<garymc>
Hyperbyte told me
21:55
<alkisg>
I'm thinking that you can boot ltsp clients, but you cannot access the internet, right?
21:55
Hyperbyte: ^
21:55
<garymc>
no i can access internet
21:55
also I can boot DHCP clients, but I have to start DHCP manualy after a reboot
21:56
<alkisg>
So network manager is started on boot...
21:56
Let's start from the beginning
21:56
<garymc>
ok
21:56
<alkisg>
What problems do you need to solve?
21:56
1) DHCP server to autostart on boot
21:56bobby_C has left IRC (bobby_C!~bobby@85-124-22-227.teleworker.xdsl-line.inode.at, Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
21:56
<alkisg>
2) Set chrome as default browser for fat clients
21:56
Anything else?
21:56
<garymc>
DHCP doesnt start on boot, so FAT cleitnst dont boot
21:57
<alkisg>
Is that all? Any other problems?
21:57
<garymc>
and after I messed up installing stuff today, I had to run : a Nat Ip command to get internet working again on the Clients
21:57
I can find that command if you give me a min
21:57
<alkisg>
No need
21:57
<garymc>
ok
21:57
<alkisg>
Just tell me which problems you have
21:58
Are they just the 2 above?
21:58
<garymc>
DHCP starting Automaticly after reboot
21:58
and Goggle Chrome as Defaut browser on all clients
21:58
*Google
21:58
*Default :P
21:58
<alkisg>
OK, good. Can we restart the server if needed?
21:58
<garymc>
yes
21:58
<alkisg>
Are you near the server if network breaks and we cannot ssh to it?
21:59
<garymc>
but I have no one to test a client as the office is now closed
21:59
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, I fixed dhcpd to start after interfaces using /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/02dhcpfix... have a look there.
21:59
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: why were you saying that network manager doesn't start on boot?
21:59
<Hyperbyte>
After server boot, he did service network-manager restart
21:59
And it failed stopping, succeeded starting.
21:59
<garymc>
no Iam 10 miles from office and since I have a new baby, missus would leave me if I went there to sort something out now
22:00
Shit
22:00
Hyperbyte
22:00
I did something else
22:00
i done sudo service dhcp3-server restart
22:00
I think
22:00
<alkisg>
garymc: OK. But, you say that you have internet after reboot, right?
22:01
<garymc>
yes
22:01
<alkisg>
So, if we restart the server now, will you have ssh access after it boots?
22:01
<garymc>
yes , i rebooted 2 hours ago
22:01
and we are in now
22:01
so I presume so
22:01
<alkisg>
I'd like to see the logs after a clean reboot
22:01
And we didn't touch anything
22:01
So, if you will, do a reboot and connect to me with screen again
22:02
Then I want to look at the logs and see why dhcpd didn't start
22:03
<garymc>
ok
22:03
are you gonna reboot it or shall I?
22:03
<alkisg>
Please do
22:03
(I left the screen sharing)
22:04
<garymc>
ok rebooting
22:04
Do I use same commands as ealrier for screen share?
22:05
<alkisg>
Just the second one
22:05
socat SYSTEM:"sleep 1 && exec screen -x",pty,stderr tcp:alkisg.dyndns.org:5500 & exec screen -l
22:06
<garymc>
done , you in?
22:06
<alkisg>
Yup
22:07
<garymc>
ok so network manager starts on boot
22:09
<alkisg>
yes
22:09
Hyperbyte, garymc: did you run update-rc.d for dhcp3-server ?
22:10
<garymc>
cant remeber , but it rings a bell in my head
22:10
but im cooking on gas
22:10
:P
22:10
<alkisg>
It looks like it... :)
22:11
<garymc>
methane
22:11
not butane
22:11
<alkisg>
garymc: can we restart again, to see if dhcp is running now?
22:12
<garymc>
yep
22:12
shall I?
22:12
<alkisg>
Yup
22:12
<garymc>
Ill let you in as soon as it reboots
22:12
can you check that my FAT Clients will have internet access in the morning?
22:13
can that be checked?
22:13TheMatrix3000 has left IRC (TheMatrix3000!~Matrix@rrcs-70-61-255-226.central.biz.rr.com)
22:13
<garymc>
or is it a test and see type thing
22:13* alkisg is using a vbox fat client for testing ;)
22:14
<alkisg>
But yeah I'm sure Hyperbyte can explain the output of iptables for you
22:14
<garymc>
ok cool, so your using a Virtual FAT client to see if it boots on my server?
22:15
you in?
22:15
<alkisg>
No, i'm using a vm fat client on MY servers ;)
22:16
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, you should look at iptables -L
22:16
<garymc>
how o I know its working though?
22:17
<Hyperbyte>
See if there are rules
22:17
<garymc>
there are 3
22:17
<Hyperbyte>
But you know what do if it isn't working, right?
22:17
The commands in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/02dhcpfix
22:17
If it isn't working tomorrow, just execute the commands there and it will.
22:18
But I'm sure alkisg will get it fixed.
22:18
<garymc>
alkisg : that line in the fix is commented out. did you do that?
22:18
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, count on it.
22:18
:P
22:18
<alkisg>
garymc: yes
22:18
<Hyperbyte>
See. :)
22:18
<garymc>
oh ok, thought I might have done it by accident and caused all this
22:18
<Hyperbyte>
I'm off to bed by the way
22:18
Have a good night!
22:18
<alkisg>
BB Hyperbyte
22:18
<Hyperbyte>
BB?
22:18
<garymc>
ok hyperbyte thanks for the help again today
22:18
<alkisg>
Bye Bye
22:18
<Hyperbyte>
Oh
22:18
<alkisg>
:)
22:19
garymc: what I don't like is that you have a network manager connection for eth1, but none for eth0
22:19
<Hyperbyte>
garymc, you're welcome.
22:19
<garymc>
I dont know why that is
22:19
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, he should have for both of them. I asked him to set them both up, and they both worked after reboot.
22:19
<alkisg>
So, eth0 starts too late
22:19
<Hyperbyte>
I'm really off now... later.
22:19
<alkisg>
That's why dhcpd doesn't start
22:19
<garymc>
bye
22:19
<alkisg>
Good night Hyperbyte
22:19
<Hyperbyte>
(dhcpd only runs on eth1, not eth0)
22:20
I can't help myself!
22:20
<garymc>
so I need to go into the GUI and set it up
22:20
<alkisg>
Haha
22:20
<Hyperbyte>
dhcpd will start without eth0, not without eth1 though.
22:20
<alkisg>
garymc: do you have access to the GUI?
22:20
<garymc>
tommorow morning i will have
22:20
<Hyperbyte>
Now I'm really really off. In fact I'll close the window immediately, that should prevent me from saying something again.
22:20
<alkisg>
OK, let's leave it for then, it'll be better
22:20
Haha
22:20* Hyperbyte hugs you both
22:20
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: booo
22:20
<Hyperbyte>
Bye!
22:20
<alkisg>
Bye!
22:20
<garymc>
bye bye
22:21
Ok Alkisg : we leave this till tommorow
22:21
?
22:21
<alkisg>
Yes but wait for 1 min...
22:21
<garymc>
ok
22:23
<alkisg>
OK, I put it back as it was
22:23
(removed the comments)
22:23
<garymc>
ok
22:23
so we leave now
22:24
<alkisg>
Good night, we try this tomorrow
22:24
