<irctc902>
ssh: Could not resolve hostname server: Name or service not known as output of command
00:02
<alkisg>
It still makes no sense
00:02
LTSP puts "server" in your /etc/hosts on the client when it boots
00:04
<irctc902>
Should I be doing this from the client ?
00:04
<alkisg>
Yes
00:04
<irctc902>
Ah !!!!
00:04
<alkisg>
"am looking at root@ltsp20:/# on client" ==> there

<irctc902>
OK I have done the ssh command at the client it says permanantly added the RSA Host key and I am now looking at a dave@ltsp-desktop:~$ prompt
00:11
<alkisg>
irctc902: now, press alt+ctrl+f7 and try to login from ldm
00:12
<irctc902>
I'm IN !
00:12
<alkisg>
So yes it's still a problem with ltsp-update-sshkeys
00:12
!ltsp-update-sshkeys
00:12
<ltsp>
alkisg: ltsp-update-sshkeys: If you changed your server IP, you need to run ltsp-update-sshkeys, and if you're using NBD (Ubuntu) you also need ltsp-update-image afterwards
00:13
<irctc902>
Do I have to do this one time only and should I do it now ?
00:14
<alkisg>
Run this on your server: sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys; sudo ltsp-update-image
00:14
Then reboot your client, you should be able to login without problems
00:14
And you only need to do that every time your server IP changes
00:15
<irctc902>
Error: chroot /opt/ltsp/amd64 doesn't exist. is the result
00:15
<alkisg>
Then put --arch i386 there
00:19
<irctc902>
I completed it and have tried it and its fine
00:20
<alkisg>
Nice
00:22
<irctc902>
I need to do something for you now. I cannot thank you enough --- this is the culmination of several weeks works , various distros and whatever and I would not have been able to do it without you. I apologise for typing commands into the server when it should have been the client.
00:22
Is there a book you wish you had that I can get for you ?

<irctc902>
How about getting Greece out of the eurozone ?
00:31
Alkisg - Please feel free to contact me via nenenaiad@yahoo.co.uk so that I can arrange to send you something. I thank you for your knowledge and patience ....Regards Dave

<stgraber>
I just pushed a change to ltsp-trunk switching from aufs to overlayfs. I "think" Ubuntu is the only distro that was using that, so it should be fine, except for anyone backporting LTSP to < Oneiric
04:28
if I'm wrong, then we probably want to make the code choose overlayfs, aufs or unionfs depending on what's available in the initramfs
04:28
(ideally trying them in that order)
04:32
would also be great if someone (Alkis?) could test fat clients with overlayfs as I know there are some weird kernel limitations with that fs and inotify
04:32
it's a bug that will be fixed but might be worth checking what's broken and putting a bit more pressure on the kernel guys to fix it if that affects us too

<priyank>
Hi I am not able to boot thin client locally(virtual box)
20:29
<alkisg>
Did you also try with a real client?
20:30
<priyank>
no I dont have one. I just completed installing ltsp in ubuntu 11.10
20:31
<alkisg>
Did you download the vbox extensions?
20:31
That contain the PXE code?
20:31
<priyank>
I just downloaded VBox from oracle site
20:31
<alkisg>
Download the extensions from the same site too
20:32
<priyank>
ok..
20:32
<alkisg>
Either that, or gpxe
20:32
!gpxe
20:32
<ltsp>
alkisg: gpxe: the successor to etherboot (http://etherboot.org). To download bootable floppy, cd, usb, kernel etc images, visit http://rom-o-matic.net/

<priyank>
Its not able to recieve boot filename
20:51
Can you please tell the dhcpd.conf settings?
20:52
I have installed extension
21:02
<alkisg>
priyank: do you have the vbox client in bridged mode?
21:03
<priyank>
yes
21:03
I am now trying for dnsmasq
21:03
<alkisg>
OK, paste your /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf
21:04
and the output of: ip -oneline -family inet addr show
21:04
<priyank>
I am trying for dnsmasq
21:04
1: lo inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo
21:04
2: eth0 inet 192.168.1.7/24 brd 192.168.1.255 scope global eth0
21:05
do you mind remote desktop for a min?
21:06
<alkisg>
Yeah ok that'd be faster... run: x11vnc -connect alkisg.dyndns.org
21:07
<priyank>
sorry a bit slow connection
21:09
<alkisg>
priyank: which one do you want to use, dhcp3-server or dnsmasq?
21:10
<priyank>
dnsmasq
21:10
<alkisg>
OK, so you need to remove dhcp3-server
21:10
<priyank>
ok
21:17
<alkisg>
priyank: do you want normal dhcp, or proxydhcp?
21:17
<priyank>
I think normal
21:19
<alkisg>
No
21:19
You have a dhcp server in your network
21:19
It might be your router
21:19
<priyank>
yes
21:19
<alkisg>
You don't want 2 dhcp servers on your network
21:19
<priyank>
no..
21:19
<alkisg>
Usually ltsp uses 2 network cards for that
21:20
<priyank>
yes.. but I dont want now
21:20
<alkisg>
Right
21:20
So, that's what proxydhcp is for
21:20
!proxydhcp
21:20
<ltsp>
alkisg: I do not know about 'proxydhcp', but I do know about these similar topics: 'proxy-dhcp'
21:20
<alkisg>
!proxy-dhcp
21:20
<ltsp>
alkisg: proxy-dhcp: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
21:20
<alkisg>
Read that later
21:20
<priyank>
okk
21:29
thanks.. :)
21:29
<alkisg>
priyank: I didn't need to change the network properties, it took a lot time and I thought it hanged :)
21:30
(left vnc)
21:30
<priyank>
okk.. its now in initramfs
21:30
<alkisg>
Ah it didn't continue after that? Another problem?
21:31
<priyank>
let me check again
21:32
no it didnt
21:32
can you see that again?
21:33
<alkisg>
ok run `x11vnc -connect alkisg.dyndns.org` again
21:38* alkisg left vnc again
21:38
<alkisg>
!ltsp-update-sshkeys
21:38
<ltsp>
alkisg: ltsp-update-sshkeys: If you changed your server IP, you need to run ltsp-update-sshkeys, and if you're using NBD (Ubuntu) you also need ltsp-update-image afterwards
21:38
<alkisg>
Also check that ^ if you use a dynamic IP on your server
21:39
<priyank>
ok..
21:39
sure
21:39
thanks a lot... now If I add new thinclient to this network it should also boot
21:39
<alkisg>
It should, yes
21:39
<priyank>
ok let me try
