16:41
<eghie>
hello
16:41
how can I build an nbi.img?
16:41
of a thin client kernel (new one)
16:42
I downloaded and installed the linux 3.0 kernel on ubuntu lucid 64 bits and want to test it on the client, so I installed it inside the client chroot
16:42
and now I copied the files needed to /var/lib/tftpboot/i386
16:42
because the client is i386
16:43
and now I want to link the symlinks to the new kernel
16:43
but it needs a nbi.img (etherboot?), but there isn't any of the current kernel
16:45
because ltsp-update-kernels and ltsp-update-image and update-initramfs won't build that file
16:48adrianorg has joined IRC (adrianorg!~adrianorg@187.58.140.220)
16:49
<eghie>
the etherboot WIKI says I should use wraplinux to build a nbi.img (for 2.6 and newer)
16:49
<alkisg>
eghie: why do you need that? Are you using etherboot? Switch to gpxe.
16:49
<eghie>
actualy just using pxe
16:49
no etherboot
16:49
<alkisg>
OK so you don't need nbi.img, the vmlinuz/initrd.img combination works fine with gpxe
16:50
<eghie>
but don't know (is a remote system) if it will have any effect on current system
16:50
ah ok
16:50
well, then i can try in this combination
16:51
it's an internet cafe in afrika, but i'm not in afrika, so I cannot test it from here ;)
16:51
yeah, I can test it, but via skype
16:52
<alkisg>
You can build a vbox (or other VM) client and test it with that
16:53
<eghie>
yeah, i can, I also have hardware enough here, to test it on real hardware, but i'm a bit on time pressure in my work now, and don't have the time to install a test system
16:53
<alkisg>
I mean directly on the afrikan server
16:53
<eghie>
ah ok, yeah, that I can do as well yes
16:54
didn't thoughed of that one
16:54
thanks, for the info
16:55
have a good day

hi, i needd to use sabayon in edubuntu 11.10 but i get a fatal error when editing a user profile. is there an alternative to sabayon which has any documentation
21:10nubae has left IRC (nubae!~nubae@183.Red-80-39-51.staticIP.rima-tde.net, Read error: Connection reset by peer)
21:10
<stgraber>
yeah, we decided not to ship sabayon by default because of that issue
21:10
I'm not aware of any alternative though
21:10
the big problem is the switch from gconf to gsettings/dconf
21:11
basically most gnome software in 11.10 are using gsettings instead of gconf. Sabayon only works with gconf at the moment so even if it was working, you could only configure a very limited subset of the desktop
21:12
hopefully gnome will release new sabayon and pessulus that will work with gsettings, but we're really just hoping at this point...
21:12nubae has joined IRC (nubae!~nubae@150.Red-2-138-253.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net)
21:14
<irctc347>
so I am stuffed then. Are there any versions of LTS that work and have fully functional utilities that you are aware of .
21:15
<stgraber>
10.04 still had an old gnome desktop so should have working sabayon and pessulus
21:16
and is still supported on the desktop until April 2013

22:47* alkisg just finished a remote ubuntu installation, set up a wireless connection in /target/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections, a reverse x11vnc connection in /target/etc/xdg/autostart, issued `echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger` to reboot while avoiding "press Enter to eject the CD", and continued to have access to the system after the installation! Yey!
22:48
<stgraber>
alkisg: next time, do echo "s", then echo "u", THEN echo "b" :)
22:48
that'll make sure you don't end up missing some data on your disk
22:48
<alkisg>
I manually sync'ed before that
