ltspuser_43: You mean you want to mount it in read-only mode? Or remount it?
ltspuser_43, also please tell us -why- you want to do that. What goal you are trying to achieve. Because there may be better ways of getting there. Generally speaking, you can't put "a whole filesystem" read-only, because the OS -needs- to write certain things at boot/login in order for things to work.
|10:38||alkisg has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Quit: Leaving.)|
LTSP clients by default, for example, use a read-only filesystem via NBD on Ubuntu, but several other temporary writable filesystems are overlayed in places where the clients - need- to have write access in order to function.
I am using NFS instead of NBD...
and with several terminal they all try to write in the same files
I want to avoid that...
That's why you should use nbd.
theres another way?
but to work withe the scenario that I have I need to use NFS...
I folllowed this how to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPWithoutNFS
the part to revert to NFS...
I have a Debian etch server providing all the filesystems...
if the solution is to use NBD I can install a NBD server and configure
this Debian server have all the users accounts and is the DHCP and DNS server...
Why did you choose for NFS over NBD?
because in my Debian server I only have NFS configured...
you suggest to use NBD??
with NBD I don't have this problem?
with multiple sessions?
muppis, ltspuser_43, if you're going to do NFS with LTSP you should mount your root read-only
This can easily be done by editing /etc/exports on the server.
But isn't then overlay needed anyway?
muppis, yes, but you need overlay with NFS or NBD regardless
So it doesn't matter.
I -think-, even with rw NFS, LTSP does the overlay anyway
Although since ltspuser_43 obviously greatly modified their setup (Debian server, Ubuntu clients, NFS, etc) it is a bit difficult to say what exactly happens and what doesn't
I already changed my /etc/exports...
My advice is to always deploy LTSP with as much of the recommended settings as possible... that way you keep your setup simple, making it easier to transfer to another admin, to upgrade and also easier to get support. When you have a complicated, customized setup, it is more difficult to find people who can support you properly.
but when I change the sysmtem can't mount and not boot...
but I didn't have a choice...
Well, then this is what I mean with making it difficult to support
Because now I can't tell you anything anymore, besides what muppis said... ubuntu uses NBD by default, that works.
And sure you had a choice. :)
I will try with nbd...
I'm running Fedora and I want a Ubuntu LTSP server. I created a virtual machine with Ubuntu (qemu-kvm), and then ran LTSP in there.
but this solution is not a choice for me...
I will try with NBD:..
ltspuser_43, why isn't it?
thank you :)
|10:53||staffencasa has left IRC (email@example.com, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)|
Are you working with fat clients or thin?
because I already have this server virtualized...
I'm confused now
You have thin clients - then why do you have a Ubuntu client chroot?
because I tried with a squeeze filesystem and LDM was not working very well...
Well I have no idea about Debian... but LTSP thin clients don't use filesystems
They use the filesystem of the server, via NBD or NFS... it shouldn't matter what kind of filesystem you have on the server.
|10:56||staffencasa has joined IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
If you have this server virtualized, my advice would be to see if you can un-complicate your setup. LTSP on Debian should work. So make a clone of that virtual server, get rid of your Ubuntu chroot, build a new Debian client, and then see what happens
but the server is a Debian etch and doesn't have support for some things...
And if you have problems, come here and we will try to help you as best as we can. That would be a proper solution.
Well since it's virtualized, what's stopping you from installing a whole new one?
but I have tried...
You can create a new virtual guest, install a brand new Debian there, with the newest LTSP....
but I have here some terminals and they need the driver geode to have a good performance
It will be a lot of work now probably, but will save you lots of headache in the long run.
and in debian etch I couldn't have this driver...
so I tried squeeze
but with squeeze I had themes problems...
What do you think is easier to debug:
a) A problem with themes
b) A problem with filesystems not properly being made read-only in a highly customized LTSP setup with Debian as server and Ubuntu as client
in Unity the icons close, minimize, etc pass to the right corner...
but with Ubuntu it's working...
You have fixed your theme problem, but in such a way that you setup becomes incredibly complicated, to the point where you run into much more complicated problems.
I am going to try with NBD and after this I can try with a new Debian...
I have another bold question for you.
Why are you using Debian, instead of Ubuntu?
because the server is Debian...
I can't change tha
It was virtualized you said
You could easily create another virtual server that is Ubuntu
yes I know...
I will try
thank you for all the support ;)
If you feel lucky, try an installation of Ubuntu 12.04, see if that doesn't fix all your problems in one go.
Good luck... if you need anything, we'll definitely try to help you here. :) But understand that the more complicated you make your system, the less likely it will be that we can help you properly.
thank you very much
|11:07||bauerski has left IRC (email@example.com, Quit: Leaving.)|
"the more complicated you make your system, the less likely it will be that we can help you properly" and "Why are you using Debian, instead of Ubuntu?" contradict to me, btw
Hehe, well, we can distro-war whatever you want.
Fact is, I'm a Fedora man. I don't like Ubuntu very much.
But when it comes to LTSP, it IS the most popular distro out there, and by far the easiest one to get support for.
Me neither do like Ubuntu, but well.. It's easier set up tha Debian and.. that's what I like.

I saw on ubuntu deplyment thar with NBD is provided an i386.img
what is this image?
It's the image what is used over nbd.
yes... but for what?
this image have some info?
It's the system waht clint uses.
|11:25||bobby_C has joined IRC (bobby_Cfirstname.lastname@example.org)|
ltspuser_43, NFS transports a file/directory over network
NBD transports a disk image over network
With NBD, there's a command ltsp-update-image, which builds the i386.img file from the /opt/ltsp/i386/ folder
This is useful so you can do modifications and then "publish" them all at once, plus you can very easily back-up working images and NBD has much better speed than NFS
thank you ;)

hi alkisg :) when scripts under chroot /etc/X11/Xsession.d are executed, home (or fstab_xx) are already been executed?
is there any docs about the ltsp "insights", scripts, and sequence?
markit: Xsession.d does not run for LDM nor for thin clients
It runs for fat clients after /home is mounted, yup
No docs available
Apart from the main .pdf
docs: For the most current documentation, see https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ltsp/index.php?title=Ltsp_LtspDocumentationUpstream
I'm opening 4 terminal, 2 on the server, 2 on the client, and will make a movie with iftop and iotop command
and I've moved startkde to startkde_original
and replaced startkde with
/usr/bin/strace -f -o /tmp/fat_strace_startkde.txt /usr/bin/startkde_vero
do you think will be ok?
nfortunately, rebuild the nbd image takes a lot, so the "try and error" aproach is very time consuming
You can make changes from screen_02=shell in the live image, or just use nfs as well

|13:31||elias_a has joined IRC (email@example.com)|
mmm in fat I'm root, I can see /home, but if I do a cd /home/marco I have a "forbidden", I've no the permission
discouraging... and don't know if .cache is created before I need to use it
markit: su - user
sshfs only exposes the file system for the user
so nfs can't be used for home? I mean, if I see file permissions of my home/.kde are of nobody nogroup
is a problem of my nfs config?
markit: nfs is mounted on system boot
Of course it can be used for home
(unless there's some bug that prevents nfs from being mounted)
it's mounted, but files created there don't belong to the user
or am I wrong?
# LANG=C su - marco
su: Authentication failure
marco@ltsp102:~$ ls -l /home/marco/.kde/
drwx------ 3 nobody nogroup 4096 ott 8 15:32 cache-ltsp102
has the user logged in?
If not, there's no matching user name, that's why the nobody/nogroup change..
Once the user logs in, you'll see the correct owner
I see... the ldm login went on but I have the infamous problem of the lnusertemp failed
$ echo $KDEVARTMP is empty in sudo -s marco
If you put that in the startkde script, then it's logical that it doesn't show up for root
Anyways, time to go, bbl

sigh, it creates a DIR cache-ltsp102 (in normal setup should be a link to /var/tmp/kdecache-marco)
and in /home/.cache, that is where I'm (just for experiment) directing the $KDEVARTMP
it creates an empty kdecache-marco + kdecache-marconux01l + kdecache-marcovgwoio
having "just" 100MB makes me feel a bit more optimistic, but I'm still far away from the solution, hope you will put the final world on this next week or so :)

ltspuser_44: do you have a tftpd running on your ltsp server?
the tftpboot is on the machine with the IP 212
tftp: Here's a page to help you troubleshoot TFTP problems in Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/Troubleshooting/TFTP
ltspuser_44: it's easier if you have a tftp server running on your ltsp server, even if you don't have a dhcp one
This way you don't have to transfer the kernel/initrd on each ltsp image update
the machine 199 has the two services...
You can have 2 tftp servers, one on 199 and one on the ltsp server
and the 212 only has tftp
212 is the ltsp server?
Right, so read the page I linked above ^
and I want to tell the thin client using the DHCP server in 199
...to use the tftp/ltsp server at 212
That's "next-server", correct
but it's not finding...
and if I put the 212 with DHCP server it works...
Read the wiki page above.
That way you'll verify that your ltsp/tftp server is correctly set up

Am using Edubuntu 12.04 and note that Menu Editor and Profile Manager do not appear to work. Can someone advise me further about it ?
Davew: if you don't get any help here about it, could you also try the edubuntu-users mailing list? (it's on http://lists.ubuntu.com)
Sure will, thank you
I want to check if imposing a tcp limit of e.g. 80mbps on the clients helps with the flow control problem (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FlowControl)
I found this in google, but I can't get it to limit the incoming rate when I run it on thin clients: http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.ratelimit.single.html
Could someone check what I'm doing wrong?

ubuntu-2d: To select ubuntu-2d as your default session, put this line in your lts.conf: LDM_SESSION="gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d"
TheProf: you'll also need to install it on your server, sudo apt-get install unity-2d, although I think it's preinstalled in edubuntu
Hmm.. so I just checked lts.conf and I already had that line about LDM_Session in it.
I also have unity-2d already installed.

TheProf: login with such a user, and then put the output of `ps aux|grep username` from the server, to pastebin
(also note it's LDM_SESSION, not LDM_Session)
alkisg: sorry - it is correct in lts.conf ; I typed it incorrectly into IRC
alkisg: I am away from the school now unfortunately so I can't connect remotely (well I can via NX but the problem doesn't appear via NX). So I will pastebin it the next time I am at the school.
|19:33||* alkisg guesses that somehow the clients try to login with unity-3d|
most probably you are correct. I'm suspecting that the changes in lts.conf are not taking.
I've had a problem before where an extra enter at the bottom (or lackthereof) seems to throw everything.
|19:34||Parker955 is now known as Parker955_Away|
So maybe it's not seeing the lts.conf notes.
alkisg: I just called someone at the school and had them manually change their session at the thin client login screen to -2D and they were able to make it work!
So, as you surmised, it is not taking the session setting from lts.conf but is instead using 3d
You can pastebin your lts.conf if you want us to have a quick look there
Or run getltscfg -a from a local client console
Just connecting back in via NX to do that now.
pastebin: the LTSP pastebin is at http://ltsp.pastebin.com. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebin, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. Don't forget to paste the URL of the text here.

The last part of the file with the printer I had to comment out since if I don't comment out, the thin clients refuse to load.
alkisg: I don't have getltscfg installed on my server.
It's installed in the chroot
About the printer, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp/+bug/996533
or right - my mistake. You said from a thin client.
It seems OK, so it might be related to where lts.conf is stored, or to your dhcp settings
Are you using ipappend=3?
lts.conf is in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/
I am not sure if I'm using ipappend=3 to be honest :)
E.g. the client might be trying to find it in ltsp/i386/lts.conf, you could make a symlink there to verify it
it was a clean installation of edubuntu 12.04
alkisg: I understand what you mean. Could I ask why would it look in i386 in some cases and amd64 in others? All the thin clients are identical hardware
The others might also be missing lts.conf
OK. So what I will do when I am at the school is first follow the steps on the launchpad bur report to resolve the printer and then see if the 2D/3D issue is resolved with a symlink.
Or try getltscfg -a from a client
alkisg: Yes I will do that.
Actually follow-up question. Will a regular apt-get update/upgrade automatically update the patch that is mentioned in the launchpad by Stgraber? It says it was pushed to the repositories.
It's not available in precise-updates yet, it'll be in the future

alkisg: some hours ago was thinking I've solved the issue, now seems to me that I'm falling back to the point it does not work. I've the feeling that when startkde is executed, the user does not have ownership of his home
and something like Error: "/home/marco/.cache/kdecache-marco" is owned by uid 65534 instead of uid 1001.
could happen to lnusertemp
