vagrantc, what's your largest deployment to date?
00:12
<vagrantc>

<wcchandler>
the armhf builds are looking interesting -- builds the software to use the hardware gpu as floating point calculator rather than emulation on the cpu
01:04
email sent out... quite the wall of text. Hope vagrant doesn't mind

wcchandler: latest LTSP versions support installing ltsp-client over an existing installation, so you might want to try the backports if you're using squeeze

<sunson>
Please validate my understand: 1. In a thin-client X session, it is just an X-Terminal setup inside the ltsp root.
05:19
(X-Terminal as in http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Remote-X-Apps-9.html )
05:20
2. Epoptes runs a network listener on the client's ltsp root and 'joins' the X session of the client node to launch stuff, like VNC or other custom commands.
05:25
<alkisg>
sunson: no, not exactly
05:25
For 1) yes, a thin client is like an x-terminal
05:25
For 2) no, epoptes does things a bit differently
05:25
There are 2 epoptes-client instances
05:25
One in the LTSP chroot and one in the LTSP server
05:26
When an LTSP client boots, and before any users log in, you can control the thin client using the "system" epoptes-client instance
05:26
After the clients log in, epoptes-client runs again for them from the server-side session, that's the "session" epoptes-client instance
05:26
And you can control the users from that one then

<muppis>
I made my laptop boot from local hdd and use wlan for connection to server. Little slow what comes to screen updates, but more usable tha whole thing over wlan.
05:59
<alkisg>
muppis: thin or fat client?
05:59dhana013 has joined IRC (dhana013!~dhana013@117.193.202.53)
05:59
<muppis>
alkisg, thin.
05:59
<alkisg>
Yeah fat would be much more faster over wlan
05:59
(i.e. just central authentication and /home)

<dhana013>
wcchandler, Hi, good news finally i fix this issue, thank you
06:01
Hi guys am new to ltsp, I finally configured ltsp server and, my client machine booting no problem,
06:01
but i cant login to my client machine.
06:02
i created user from chroot environment but can't login client machine any clues
06:02
<alkisg>
You need to use a user account that you created on the server
06:02
<muppis>
alkisg, well, on that laptop normal local install was almost same as thin in usability, so I don't would fat do any better.
06:02
don't think..
06:02
<alkisg>
muppis: sure if you have slow hardware, I was talking about wlan in general
06:02
<muppis>
alkisg, I know. :)
06:03
<dhana013>
alkisg, yes i created user in chroot environment in server
06:03
<alkisg>
dhana013: not in chroot, create it normally on the server
06:04
dhana013: LTSP basically uses ssh to the server to login.
06:04
<dhana013>
alkisg, you told my server login
06:04
<alkisg>
So you need some server account for ssh to work, not a chroot account
06:06
<dhana013>
alkisg, you told server users login work in client machine. it's correct
06:07
alkisg, but my server ssh is disabled
06:08
<alkisg>
dhana013: you can't use ltsp without ssh
06:23
<dhana013>
alkisg, thanks i try once ssh is successful

<alkisg>
What's a good name for a tool that cleans up stuff from the chroot (like logs, caches, even user accounts)? ltsp-sysprep, ltsp-cleanup, ltsp-prepare ?
06:34
<muppis>
cleanup
06:35
<alkisg>
Ty :)
06:35
<muppis>
Np :)
06:36
<elias_a>
I vote for cleanup, too.
06:36
It even sounds good when spoken :)
06:39
<alkisg>
That's what I started with, but then I wondered if "sysprep" would ring a bell to more users, but ...nah!
06:39
<muppis>
Sysprep sounds too much M$..
06:48
<knipwim>
yeah cleanup

hello
22:14
Is there a way to enable screenlock on thin (fat) clients?
22:14
I see it's possible to do it from epoptes, but I would like the option to enable students to lock their screen if they choose to.
22:15
by the way, LTSP is pretty awesome!
22:25Parker955_Away is now known as Parker955
22:31
<troyt_>
I posted the question to the Epoptes site. I imagine Epoptes might have something to do with restricting the gnome-screensaver-command-l ...command.
22:31
<talntid>
no idea, I have not tried epoptes yet
22:35
<troyt_>
It comes standard with Edubuntu 12.04
22:35
It's quite nice.
22:35
Works well when using ltsp-remoteapps
22:36
I created a shortcut for the instructor so the LTSP server potentially live in a closet.
22:37
er.. I mean.. Teh server would live in the server room.
