hello all, simple question: how to mute very loud beep? I have rmmod pcspkr and set bell-style none. The beep comes from soundcard, not from speaker and is VERY loud even if the music is set to 10%
computer starts "beeping" randomly and restart of the client helps
beep sounds on every key press

|06:24||* alkisg_debian is reading http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer ... So flash in debian needs a per-user configuration file in order to work with pulseaudio (and thus ltsp)?|
|06:44||vmlintu__ has left IRC (email@example.com, Ping timeout: 256 seconds)|
alkisg_debian, I kinda of doubt that, looking at that page
It looks like you could also put that configuration in the global alsa config
In fact, it's probably already there, since most distros that come with pulse, configure alsa to redirect to pulse, which is exactly what that asoundrc does
See /usr/share/alsa/pulse-alsa.conf on Ubuntu :)
Hyperbyte: so you think it'd work out of the box on debian too, even if the wiki page says otherwise?
Where does it say that?
In the wiki page I linked above
"Remember that if you need the Flash Player to work with pulse, you can ask libasound to do so in your ~/.asoundrc:"
Those are under Troubleshooting
|06:59||vmlintu__ has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
But maybe Debian doesn't use pulseaudio by default, or didn't use pulseaudio by default and that's an old page?
Have you checked if that configuration specified there is already present in your system?
Not yet I'm currently trying to find a way to add "contrib" to my sources _graphically_ :P
(and failing to find it :D)

hi, after upgrading the edubuntu server of our primary school from 10.10 to 12.04LTS, some of the older clients (Pentium2 233MHz) don't boot anymore, they stuck at a kernel panic after loading initrd.img. Tried to install a lucid LTSP client image with --dist=lucid --arch=i386, but LTSP-Client install terminates through an error in ltsp-client-core :/
Fehler traten auf beim Bearbeiten von:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Fehler: Die LTSP-Client-Installation ist fehlgeschlagen
sry, it's german
scytheee: look for earlier errors
Near a line that mentions "installing ltsp-client-core..."
Entpacken von ltsp-client-core (aus .../ltsp-client-core_5.2.16-0ubuntu7_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von /var/cache/apt/archives/ltsp-client-core_5.2.16-0ubuntu7_i386.deb (--unpack):
hm, doesn't tell more :/
same error happened on trying installing an oineric client, so it shouldn't be a problem of that single package
Did you verify that this client can't be booted with any recent kernel, e.g. with a live cd?
|07:17||vmlintu__ has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
alkisg_debian, the 8 Pentium2 machines only have 64 till 128mb ram, don't think they will boot a normal ubuntu cd. but hadn't tried
scytheee: they'll boot the kernel, we don't care about later on
If you see plymouth (the ubuntu logo), that's good enough
scytheee: 64 RAM? 12.04 thin clients need 128
So if you can't upgrade the RAM to 128, do build a 10.04 chroot
some have 128 and got stuck too. they load initrd.img hung up and Caps Lock/Scroll Lock LEDs are blinking
OK, that's probably the kernel problem, but if you also want to work with 64 RAM, then you absolutely need an older chroot, not just a 10.04 kernel
ok, understood. but trying to install 10.04 chroot didn't work as described :D
You could do it in a VM, but first ensure that the kernel is the problem
So, 2 questions that you need to answer at this point: (1) do the clients boot with the 12.04 live cd or not? and (2) can you upgrade your ram to 128?
ok. will try it. if CPU is the problem, I need to install 10.04 in a VM, build 10.04 chroot and copy it to the 12.04 server?
If you answer "no" to (1), then you don't need to answer (2) :D
And if you answer no to (2), then you don't need to answer (1), as you'll need a 10.04 chroot anyway
(or a debian one, if you want your chroot to be supported for a longer time)
scytheee: on second thought, _don't_ use a 10.04 chroot (if it comes to that), use a debian testing one
As that has a recent ltsp version so that you won't need to change the nbd-server configuration etc
alkisg_debian, what do I have to enter in --dist= for latest debian chroot?
Use a VM again :)
alkisg: i've managed to mount home directories with nfs4. i've to use empty /home/ directory on client machine and mount there exported homedir. this helps

alkisg, hi again :) the p2 machines have all 128mb ram. running an ubuntu 12.04 i386 cd lead to a hung up in a stack trace, same as booting through ltsp
scytheee: do you see the ubuntu logo before the crash?
can't say, the monitor sais "no signal" till the stack trace shows up and the keyboard LEDs are blinking
I also see no grub to influence this :D
How long from the moment the kernel is loaded and up to the crash?
|08:10||bobby_C has left IRC (bobby_Cemail@example.com, Ping timeout: 245 seconds)|
a couple of seconds or e.g. 20 seconds?
nothing, from loading grub till stack trace
You can press [tab] in syslinux to remove "quiet splash"
So it's probably right after the kernel loads
OK, so you need a 486 chroot
I'd recommend debian testing for that
can I install that on the 12.04 server through "ltsp-build-client --dist=" ?
I think for that to work you'd need to troubleshoot some ltsp-build-client scripts, so if you're not a programmer, no
Maybe you can use deboostrap and install ltsp-client/ldm manually in the chroot, but that might require fixing things afterwards too
So... a debian VM might be easier
If you don't mind waiting a few weeks, I plan on uploading a debian chroot on some web server, just for your people with your problem
(I'm supporting a few hundred schools here)
would be nice to get it fixed this week, cause some classes count on that :/ but would be nice to have a ready to use solution
Yeah maybe a "apt-get install ltsp-debian-testing-chroot" package
scytheee, you could use your old chroot from 10.04 if you still have it in a backup somewhere
Or at least I think you can
alkisg will smythe me if I'm wrong.
Hyperbyte, thx, but I don't have it anymore :/
alkisg, I booted one of the old machines on an other monitor, now I could see something :D kernel booted, but after loading the initrd.img it hung up
|08:25||dobber has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
scytheee: the kernel and initrd are loaded by syslinux. After loading them, it passes control to them. So the kernel gets to execute _after_ the initrd is loaded.
But if you press [tab] and remove quit splash, and see that the initramfs gets uncompressed by the kernel,
and _then_ it crashes,
then it might be something solveable
A photo might help, if you have a mobile with camera
did one, just uploading
after that, the stack trace shows up
scytheee: can you press [tab] and replace quiet splash with break=top ?
It seems like the kernel loads, which is a good sign
nothing new with break=top :/
So the initramfs doesn't start running
If you want, you might ask in #ubuntu-kernel about the problem
Otherwise, a debian chroot...
You might also try with the non-pae kernel
alkisg, how can I get it?
Ah no scratch that I think that you had the non-pae version already in your TFTP

mmm seems that shows client only once logghed, AFAIR time ago ti showed client icon also when just powered up or something like that

thanx vagrantc, what i want to do is be able to have 2 kind of desktop profile, one for a generic user another for admins
how would you implement that on a non-LTSP environment?
the generic user desktop only will have 2 icons, 1 the firefox icon and 2, the spark client icon
and no more
there's nothing special about how to do this with LTSP ... do you have a way to do this in a non-LTSP environment? the same technique will apply.
no , i don't habe another way ...
i was hopping you will be able to help me :'(
you just want different icons on the different profiles?

|15:45||markit has joined IRC (email@example.com)|
Spriggan: I think you do it via ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession files, but that's going to depend on your distro and if you are using xorg or x11. with ubuntu, I think it will remember whatever your previous choice was at the login screen for each user. I've no idea if there's an easy way to force one
|15:45||dobber has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Remote host closed the connection)|
well, ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession will be used for default sessions- but that just selects what applications to run, doesn't necessarily affect the desktop icons.
also, ldm should respect ~/.dmrc if it's present, although how that actually works varies greatly.
(different display managers read ~/.dmrc differently, and many recent ones ignore it... wheee)

so, debian split out the long package descriptions in the apt repositories into a language-en version ... maybe ltsp-build-client should default to not including long descriptions...
saves around 19MB of installed disk space, some download time, at the cost of no long descriptions for packages in the chroot.
(of course, compressed squashfs images will only be slightly smaller, but it's a little bit less to compress)
speaking of languages
thinking of implementing localepurge in the gentoo thin client install
this removes all language files you don't use
oh yeah, debian should do that too.
i think ubuntu handles locales in a way where it maybe doesn't matter.
although the description for the package in debian includes huge ugly warnings.

hi, after copying the chroot and /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp from edubuntu 11.04 to 12.04, I ran into the busybox on my thin client. what do I have to do that it starts the right way?
|17:57||alkisg has joined IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg)|
hi alkisg, found the problem why my pentium2 clients don't boot with 12.04. Some of them only have 64MB, so the ramdisk is to big. till Ubuntu/Edubuntu 11.04 it works with 64MB ram. but I can't get the old chroot from 11.04 running on 12.04.
Guys, I am installing latest LTSP in gentoo, and fails when compiling the kernel: http://pastebin.com/DyBzAc1v
|18:02||ogra_ has left IRC (email@example.com, Excess Flood)|
|18:04||ogra_ has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
scytheee: if you remove plymouth from the initramfs, the 12.04 kernel will boot with 64 ram, but the clients will be too slow after they boot, so yeah an older chroot would be wise. But I don't have time for the next couple of days to help; too busy, bbl
|18:06||alkisg has left IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg, Quit: Leaving.)|
scytheee, you could always just install 11.04 somewhere, build a chroot and copy it over.
Or at least that should work. You won't have the newest LTSP on the 11.04 chroot, but I think it should still be compatible.
Hyperbyte, thats what I did, but the chroot from 11.04 running on 12.04 lead the thin client to land in busybox
might even be able to build it on the same server, specifying --dist
that generally works on debian
oh, there are a few manual tweaks you'd have to do, since we actually made some more changes there.
vagrantc, tried that already, but didn't work, client building exited with an error on ltsp-client-core package
vagrantc, do you have a link for me? badly, I couldn't find any info about that till now :/
right, you'd need to add an ltsp-build-client plugin that touches /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp_chroot
the bigger problem than ram I've found with older pc's, especially p2 era, is graphics chipset. I've had 128MB with a TNT or geforce2 card do OK, but the intel onboard stuff of that era is just horrid, even for native installs
at least, for web browsing and rdp
and forget about flash
||cw the clients with p2 and 64/128mb ran ok with 10.10. they are at a primary school, just for some textworks, simple learning apps and some basic webbrowsing. no flash/java etc. needed

alkisg: why doesn't ubuntu 12.04 work? unsupported hardware?
vagrantc: the initramfs with plymouth etc is too big and can't be uncompressed in 64mb ram
ah. why not just disable plymouth?
scytheee: you also need to modify /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
vagrantc: it'll boot but it'll be too slow
If scytheee disables everything, localapps, localdevices etc, users might even be able to login :P but then openning firefox etc will use local X ram and will be too wlo
Unfortunately 12.04 requires 128 ram
but debian works fine?
Not sure... I proposed debian when we thought the problem was an uncompatible kernel
(at that point we also thought all clients had >=128 ram :D)
scytheee: or you can just get more ram, maybe that's the way to go ;)
:D jepp, with debian testing and 64mb ram I got a kernel panic too
Really? I had debian booting locally with 48 ram...
what was the error message?
stack trace after loading the initrd.img
do you have any with more ram to test?
vagrantc, yes, with >=128mb no problems
that's too bad.
although realistically, less than 128M was kind of questionable already ...

Actually 12.04 required 256 ram before I cut half of the services from RM_SYSTEM_SERVICES list :P
vagrantc, in the next months these old machines get hopefully replaced, but till then ...
looks like i've been testing with 256M+ for the last several debian ltsp uploads
I still have some machines with dualcore, but 8 old ones are still there
And you can't split the ram? No clients have 256 or more?
probably need to set up an older release alongside the newer LTSP release, then.
and set the old ones to boot to the older setup.
vagrantc, yes, that would be good
they're 686-class machines?
Why not a 10.04 chroot on a 12.04 server?
alkisg, that's what I'm trying at the moment :D
if they don't have pae, you can probably use this: http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php/Ifcpu64.c32
rather than hard-coding them from dhcp
if they are missing some cpu flags that others don't have
hm, netstat says the nbd-server is not listening on port 2000
vagrantc I think the only problem is the ram, cpu flags should be ok (I hope)

scytheee: yes, but you could choose which environment to boot based on processor type
but the default ones may not be fine-grained enough for what you need.

vagrantc: would you have time on the next couple of days to review/help with the ltsp-server-dnsmasq packaging?
alkisg: today, maybe friday
alkisg: and a little bit here and there, but not much
Today is too soon, I'll prepare something tomorrow or the day after that, and if you don't have time to review it sooner, friday it is, thanks! :)

highvoltage: your help with ensuring the debian artwork for LDM would be great :)
alkisg: since debconf is so much farther away this year, think you can make it? :)
vagrantc: ...any parts sponsored? :D

hi ppl, hi alkisg :) I had a lot of troubles installing 12.04 these days, my previous tests were not wide enough
|21:27||* alkisg was already planning to dive deep, so any help welcome :D|
alkisg: is something different in epoptes?
does not show my clients until they are logghed
No, we haven't touched it since the last 12.04/debian testing upload
as far as I remember, I had the thumbail of clients not yet logged
or do I remember wrong?
markit: that probably means that the chroot doesn't have the correct certificate
maybe because I changed the server IP?
No, the IP doesn't matter
I've seen a patch that uses "server" instead of IP to avoid this problem
is a THIN client solution
I've no epoptes client in chroot... am I wrong?
markit: read the installation page, www.epoptes.org/installation
It has a section about installing epoptes-client in chroots
Yup you need it in thin chroots too
Otherwise you get what you saw, i.e. you can only control them after login
alkisg: ok, my bad, probably I made confusion with my scripts
was installed but I "improved" it for this installation since some software that was "fat only" went in thin chroot too
and probably I moved epoptes-client too
last question: ltsp-update-sshkeys no necessary if I change server IP (same subnet)?
seem that is working...
It's necessary, it won't be in the future
mmm I changed from 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.185
It might be working if you have LDM_SSHOPTIONS in lts.conf
With no checking there
no, I've not
|21:32||* markit scratches his head|
btw, bonding config has changed in 12.04
I had 2 interface with no traffic
for apparent no reason... bad hours I spent :(
also resolvconf had forced me to set things different... was lucky to find, at the end, a good post about the issue
as soon as I've time I will update the wiki (for bonding)
alkisg: back to polite questions: how are you? everything ok? not seen you on irc since some days
(you missed me so much ;P)
busy busy, will have more time in a week or so
thanks a lot for your help and ltsp dev, wife is calling, I've to go to sleep asap
