<ltspuser_27>
hello! I have a thin client that when he boots using ubuntu 12.04 this message appears: "Exported device is too big for me"
09:15
can I erase something from the chroot image to make it not so heavy?
09:17
<alkisg>
Does that happen with other clients?
09:19
<ltspuser_27>
no because the others are better
09:19
this one only have 128 MB of memory...

is this one...
09:20
<elias_a>
alkisg: We try to get the map into an Open StreetMap layer.
09:21
<alkisg>
elias_a: won't you try to put them as a story in ltsp.org?

hi ppl, hi alkisg. I've put a echo of stderr in /usr/bin/startkde in the lnusetemp part, and I get "Error: "/home/.cache/kdecache-marco" is owned by uid 65534 instead of uid 1001." when it tires to create the cache. Are you sure that at that stage the user should have ownership of his home?
09:40
brb
09:43
<alkisg>
markit: /home/.cache? No "username" there?

09:57
<ltspuser_27>
this guy has the same problem
09:57
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.nbd.general/1629
09:57
in the end he says:
09:57
the problem was fixed. After all it was a problem in Dracut with the nbd-client command which resulted in this error. The line used was: nbd-client 192.168.0.1 '-N ltsp' /dev/nbd0 and removing the quotes fixed it.
09:58
where I can change that?
09:58
<knipwim>
ltspuser_27: that's me :)
09:58
you use dracut as initramfs?
10:00
<ltspuser_27>
no...
10:00
but could be the same problem...
10:01
I have this problem
10:01
and I don't know how to solve it
10:05hays has left IRC (hays!~quassel@unaffiliated/hays, Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
10:05
<alkisg>
ltspuser_27: after the problem, do you get an "initramfs>" shell?
10:18
<markit>
alkisg: correct, I took the wrong line to paste here, was first attempt
10:18
let me find the last one, where I set the cache to be in home/user/.cache
10:18
(or maybe I was too tired and did not noticed the error)
10:18
<alkisg>
markit: also note that you might be seeing problems with symlink targets instead of dirs
10:19
So if you're using symlinks, you also need to tell us where they point to
10:19
<markit>
root@ltsp102:~# cat /tmp/lnuser.log
10:19
Error: "/home/marco/.cache/kdecache-marco" is owned by uid 65534 instead of uid 1001.
10:20
alkisg: it should create /home/marco/.cache/kdecache-marco first, and then create a symling among ~/.kde/cache-hostname and ./.cache/kdecache-marco then

10:22
<alkisg>
markit: can you check that file once you login, to verify that it's not owned by "nobody"?
10:22
markit: also, I'm not sure if you're using NFS or sshfs after all...
10:23
NFS mounts happen on boot, much before login time
10:23
You can verify that with ssh/epoptes/screen_02=shell etc
10:25
<markit>
I could add a "ls -l" before lnusertemp and dump the output to a temp log, so you can check that home files "look" owned by nobody:nogroup at that stage

really my complain is ram.. 256MB.. 512 should have consted only some euros more
10:27
but would have done a big difference
10:28markit_2 is now known as markit
10:28
<Hyperbyte>
markit, I think that's the wrong approach to limited resources. :)
10:28
alkisg can tell you more about it. ;-)
10:28
<markit>
Hyperbyte: I was there when you had 64K but only 32K for data... really is something I don't want to experience again
10:29
expecially now when 256MB more should have costed probably 5 euros
10:29
<Hyperbyte>
markit, hey, I'm planning on ordering a new server for work here with at least 64 GB memory - you don't have to convince me! :)
10:30
<markit>
Hyperbyte: uh, that will cost much more than 5 euros ;P
10:30
<Hyperbyte>
I'm just saying: if you're going to experiment with platforms with limited resources, you shouldn't say 'oh if only I had a little more' ;-)
10:30
<markit>
Hyperbyte: virtualization? have you checked proxmox project?
10:30
<Hyperbyte>
That's the wrong approach to the challenge.
10:30
<markit>
Hyperbyte: correct, but don't worry, the cpu is limited too and I don't complain
10:31
<Hyperbyte>
markit, virtualization, yes.
10:31
Proxmox I haven't heard of. Was planning qemu-kvm.
10:31
<markit>
http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Main_Page
10:31
Hyperbyte: it has openvz + strong support for kvm
10:31
<Hyperbyte>
Ah. Proxmox is just the GUI, right?
10:32
Like virt-manager?

<ltspuser_37>
I'm havng this problem
10:36
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.nbd.general/1629
10:36
any help??
10:36
<knipwim>
you didn't use dracut you said?
10:36
<ltspuser_37>
I'm not using Dracut but I don't know how to see if this resolution works
10:37
<knipwim>
well, it was a problem in dracut resulting in a wrong nbd-client command
10:37
<Hyperbyte>
markit, that doesn't seem too useful, on top of what is already there. The least thing I want is some layer that sits between me and the software I'm using. I'd rather just use qemu-kvm directly... definitely not via a web interface.
10:37
<knipwim>
can you do a nbd-client connect from another client?
10:38
<ltspuser_37>
I have other terminal
10:38
<Hyperbyte>
I mean, it seems like a great idea for people who are new to virtualization or Linux... bit like how FreePBX can be useful for people who want a Linux PBX, but don't know much about it. Or Webmin or Plesk. Useful for lots of people, but if you're already a Linux and virtualization user, it just seems like it'd get in the way.
10:39
<ltspuser_37>
this one is the weakest
10:39
<Hyperbyte>
Unless I understood what I just read completely wrong.
10:39
<ltspuser_37>
only happening with ths one...
10:40
<Hyperbyte>
ltspuser_37, just a random thought here - did you run a ram test on the client?
10:41
<ltspuser_37>
no
10:41
but I know that this one has 128MB
10:41
and the other has 2GB
10:42
:P
10:42
but I need to put working with the one with 128MB
10:42
because is cheaper
10:43
<knipwim>
ltspuser_37: how large is the image on the server?

<epoptes_user0>
can someone here help me with config epoptes ?
10:50
<ltspuser_37>
351M
10:52
<markit>
Hyperbyte: spend some time reading the doc... there is HA, DRDB, live migrations, backup, flexyble storage model and the web interface does not prevent you from doing directly, is the Unix way where interface just sit on top of command lines programs
10:52
Hyperbyte: unless you have plenty of time and really enjoy doing stuff at basic level
10:53
I also when asterisk was 1.1 created the dialplan in extensions.conf with an editor
10:53
but now with Elastix I can setup my home PBX in a snap, compared
10:53
of course knowing what is going "under the hood" helps a lot for troubleshooting
10:54
so you can keep you knowledge and "leverage" with the help of proxmox
10:54
but proxmox is what I use and apreciate, of course different situations/feelings/problems/experience/etc makes not a perfect solution for everybody :)
10:56
<ltspuser_37>
knipwim: any suggestions?
10:58
<Hyperbyte>
ltspuser_37, I didn't ask you to verify how much ram there is in there. I asked if you checked that the ram is still okay.
10:59
<ltspuser_37>
how can I check??
10:59
is booting...
10:59
But it's very slow...
11:00
<Hyperbyte>
markit, meh, I'd still rather keep it as basic as possible... virt-manager is pretty clean when it comes to interface and machine management. All the other features you mentioned I don't plan on using.
11:00
<ltspuser_37>
and if I go to youtube the session freeze
11:01
<Hyperbyte>
ltspuser_37, there are several boot disks that allow you to run a memory test.
11:02
http://www.memtest.org/ for example
11:02
Wouldn't hurt to verify that the memory is still okay.
11:02
<ltspuser_37>
ok
11:02
I will test...

<ltspuser_37>
I have testes in another terminal and it's giving the same error...
11:09
I don't think it's a ram problem...
11:10
I think it's the nbd
11:13
because the error is "exported driver is too big for me. get a 64-bit machine :-("
11:17
<Hyperbyte>
ltspuser_37, wait a second. You said earlier the problem was only with 1 terminal, not with all of them.
11:17
Which is it?
11:21
<knipwim>
ltspuser_37: can you do the nbd-client command from another client, manually?
11:22
so you can test if it's an initramfs problem or not
11:23
<ltspuser_37>
yes
11:23
I can try
11:23
The problem is with this terminals...
11:24
the LT1600
11:24
with terminals from other brand works fine...
11:25
<knipwim>
you don't have another computer?
11:25
like a laptop or something
11:26
you don't have to boot from nbd to see if the command works
11:27
<ltspuser_37>
I ran the command on the same terminal but manually
11:27
must be with other terminal??
11:27
<knipwim>
no
11:27
<ltspuser_37>
when I ran manually gives the same error...
11:27
<knipwim>
to be clear, which command did you ran? on what term? (mem)
11:27
<ltspuser_37>
so I think it's definetly nbd
11:28
I ran on the same LT1600 in tty2 and the command was nbd-client 192.168.69.212 -N ltsp /dev/nbd0
11:29
<knipwim>
that worked?
11:29
<ltspuser_37>
no
11:29
gives me the same error
11:29
and I ran again and the size is different
11:29
but it's giving the same error
11:29
always
11:30
<knipwim>
but it works on a terminal with more memory?
11:30
<ltspuser_37>
let me explain...
11:30
sorry for my english
11:31
<knipwim>
no problem
11:31
<ltspuser_37>
on this terminal it's working... but on boot appears this error...
11:31
with a better terminal this error doesn't appear
11:34
<knipwim>
both with the same image/kernel/initramfs?
11:34
<ltspuser_37>
yes
11:35
<knipwim>
hmm
11:36
than i'm clueless
11:37
<ltspuser_37>
couldn't be the same problem from the page that I post?
11:37
<knipwim>
perhaps put in another 128mb in the client and see what happens
11:37
<ltspuser_37>
with that command?
11:37
<knipwim>
nope
11:37
<ltspuser_37>
where I can see that command??
11:37
<knipwim>
that was a specific dracut problem
11:37mikkel has joined IRC (mikkel!~mikkel@80-71-132-15.u.parknet.dk)
11:38
<knipwim>
the command that dracut issues was different than the one in the terminal
11:38
this one: nbd-client 192.168.69.212 '-N ltsp' /dev/nbd0 (with quotes)
11:38
so the command was wrong, resulting in the error
11:39
the error itself didn't have anything to do with the problem
11:39
now afk for a moment ...
11:40
<Hyperbyte>
Some mailing list threads suggest this may be a problem with name-based exports.
11:41
Oh, that's knipwim's thread again
11:42
Right, nevermind. :/

What is "saned"?
12:16
when my terminal boots doesn't show the login console
12:16
the last message is "saned disabed: edit /etc/default/saned"
12:19
<Hyperbyte>
saned is scanning daemon
12:19
Disabled by default
12:25
<alkisg>
ltspuser_37: if you're seeing the nbd problem AND then the client boots, then the problem is related to NBD swap, not to the nbd root partition
12:26
You can verify this by getting a local xterm on the client and running `free`
12:26
Clients with more RAM don't automatically get swap, that's why you're seeing that only with this client
12:27
So the answer is, create a proper swap.conf:
12:27
$ cat /etc/nbd-server/conf.d/swap.conf
12:27
[swap]
12:27
exportname = /tmp/nbd-swap/%s
12:27
prerun = nbdswapd %s
12:27
postrun = rm -f %s
12:27
Btw, the -N parameter to nbd-client in Ubuntu is :ltsp_i386, not ltsp
12:28
That's why you were seeing problems when you tried it manually

14:23
I have found the solution for this errors...
14:24
but alkisk the swap didn't work
14:24
I just need to create the swap.conf??
14:24
<work_alkisg>
ltspuser_37: you need to restart the nbd-server in order to read any new configuration you've made
14:24work_alkisg is now known as alkisg
14:24
<alkisg>
You don't need NBD_SWAP in lts.conf, no
14:25
It's enabled automatically for low-RAM clients
14:25
ltspuser_37: note that when you restart nbd-server, the clients need to be rebooted
14:25
<ltspuser_37>
ok

ltspuser_37: how did you install ltsp? You were supposed to have swap.conf automatically
14:27

I don't know which one
14:28
but I think I only installed ltsp-server...
14:28
<alkisg>
Instead of ltsp-server-standalone? That might be why...
14:29
<ltspuser_37>

14:29
I have the two installed
14:29
<alkisg>
What's the output of this command? grep -r '' /etc/nbd-server
14:29
<ltspuser_37>
it's working :D
14:30
<alkisg>
Cool
14:30
<ltspuser_37>
but I only don't know why is not showing the login...
14:31
in ctrl-alt-f1 shows the log and the last line is saned disabled;...
14:31
<alkisg>
That's normal
14:32
Did it show the login screen before you created swap.conf?
14:32
<ltspuser_37>
how can I show login instead?
14:33
no
14:33
but with the other terminal it shows...

I use debian+ltsp for 8 clients. amd phenon2 2.6Ghz 4core, 8Gb RAM, 1Tb disk. I use it for 2 years. since software is becaming more "resource demanding", in the last months we noticed considerable slowness. people use openoffice / thunderbird / firefox / chrome daily.
16:49
how can I check which is a good server configuration for "quick user response" for 8 clients with this needs?

<gkiagia>
hi. I've setup ltsp on debian with diskless fat clients and I'm wondering about the proper setup of NBD swap files. All the available documentation mentions nbdswapd, which is apparently not used at all here (client runs nbd-client, which connects to the running nbd-server instance on the server - no nbdswapd anywhere). Is this expected?
16:57
<pzn>
any documentation available for knowing server cpu/ram/etc resources needed?
17:30
<||cw>
ltspuser_37: this would be an issue with ubuntu's saned package. you can report it on the ubuntu bug tracker, ignore it since it's harmless, or edit that file and enable saned
17:30
or a combination of the above
17:32
pzn: it's very workload dependent. resource sharing isn't as good as it used to be, especially with open office, mozilla, and google since they prefer to build using their own versions of libraries instead of the system ones. it's easier for them than trying to convince the system package maintainer to accept a patch or pull a new upstream.
17:34
<pzn>
||cw, ok, thanks... I understood that it is not easy to know. D do you have any "idea" if the configuration that I posted above is adequate for 8 clients?
17:34
<||cw>
gkiagia: I've no idea for fat client specifics, but thin client rarely need swap so it's not setup by default
17:35
pzn: I don't. My workloads are limited to certain custom apps, kiosk style.
17:35
<pzn>
||cw, ok, tks!
17:36
||cw, do you know that if I get a standalone computer (no ltsp), open all apps that I need, check RAM used, then multiply x8 to know how much RAM is perfect. since there are shared libs, I may need less than 8x RAM
17:36
is my way of thinking right?
17:37
<||cw>
as a worst case, yes. what your people are doing with the apps do make a huge difference though, especially with web browsing.
17:39
<pzn>
mmm... interesting... you mean blocking not-needed flash web apps (or other bahaviour like that) would help a lot, right?

alkisg: I've done this and the swap.conf is in place. the whole thing works, with the exception that the swap files are never removed from the server when clients shut down. I've read that nbdswapd is supposed to wrap nbd-server and remove the swap files later, but it doesn't seem to be in use
18:14

gkiagia: the problem is the client shutdown, it closes too fast without first disconnecting nbd, we've worked around it with a client service in ubuntu, not sure what happens in debian,

19:45
What happens if someone enters a username that is already in use?
19:46
<alkisg>
Done

Thanks
19:46
<alkisg>
Not sure, maybe they get a guest* name then
19:46
<Hyperbyte>
Worth some investigating.
19:46
Alkis, this 389 Directory Server on RedHat is so awesome, and so insanely easy to set up

Nope, they get a _ at the end ;)
19:47
<Hyperbyte>
I decided to just use /etc/passwd at the Radio Capelle LTSP setup, but switched to LDAP (389DS) now...
19:47
Even migrating existing systems is a piece of cake.
19:48
<alkisg>
I wonder if ltsp could use the passwd ldap implementation, where the ldap database is /etc/passwd itself
19:48
<Hyperbyte>
Why would you want that?
19:48
<alkisg>
So that users can then continue to use the same user management tools they use now, without having to learn anything about ldap

Ever tried administrating a 389 LDAP server?
19:49* vagrantc has been rethinking LTSP's hacks to avoid using LDPA
19:49
<vagrantc>
LDAP
19:49
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: nope, does it have a fixed schema for ldap users etc?

<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: that was very neat, no wonder the ubuntu folks are looking to integrate it
20:03
Hyperbyte: what about mass user creation? Are there tools for that?
20:03
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, probably.
20:03
You can just import .ldif files
20:04
Which are plain text, easily readable.
20:04
Basically:
20:04
[username]
20:04
attribute: value

20:04
<Hyperbyte>
attribute: value
20:04
etc...
20:04
<alkisg>
Are local users separated from ldap ones? E.g. can I use useradd and then see it in the ldap directory?
20:04redbaritone has joined IRC (redbaritone!~dhall@2607:f808:8600:0:21b:63ff:fea9:ba71)
20:04
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, no, LDAP is completely seperate.
20:05
<alkisg>
So pam first try local login, and then searches for ldap users, makes sense...
20:05
<Hyperbyte>
In fact, you can have local users with the same credentials or ID's as LDAP users... the priority LDAP has over /etc/passwd in nsswitch.conf determines which one has precedence
20:05
<alkisg>
*tries
20:05
<Hyperbyte>
So there are never conflicts.
20:05
<alkisg>
Well, I hope other distros start making it at least easily available, and why not, in the future, maybe even preinstalled..
20:06
It could surely help with ltsp
20:06
<Hyperbyte>
I think it's an awesome way to administrate user accounts
20:06
<alkisg>
The clients don't get any significant overhead, right? No big services running...
20:06
<Hyperbyte>
Traditionally LDAP is a bit tough, but the 389-console which I just showed you, really makes things very user friendly
20:06
No, clients have to run nscd I think for best result, caching server
20:06
But I suppose you could do without, especially in LTSP environment where clients are a goner anyways without the server.
20:07
<alkisg>
Ah, so they can even use some ldap accounts when the server goes offline?

20:07
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, it's so users don't stop existing immediately when the server reboots, and it's also so your server doesn't get queried constantly
20:07redbaritone has joined IRC (redbaritone!~dhall@2607:f808:8600:0:21b:63ff:fea9:ba71)
20:08
<alkisg>
Does it also provide for single sign on?
20:08
<Hyperbyte>
With Fedora it's authconfig --enable-cache to get nscd in between... if you leave that out, there's no daemon running
20:08
What do you mean, 'single sign on'?
20:08
?
20:08
<alkisg>
It's when you enter your credentials once, and they persist across processes or even different machines
20:08
<Hyperbyte>
Does that work with PAM?
20:09
<alkisg>
E.g. I logged in to the LTSP server (with LDAP), why would I have to enter my password again to mount a samba share, etc
20:09
<Hyperbyte>
If so, then it works with LDAP.
20:09
<alkisg>
I think it's a different component but yes it goes through the pam stack
20:09
<Hyperbyte>
Well then it's LDAP compatible. LDAP is very mature.

20:09
<Hyperbyte>
And 389 DS just profits on the existing LDAP maturity to finally add a nice user interface and design people can understand easily. :)
20:10
<alkisg>
Cool, I hope it gets widespread
20:10
<Hyperbyte>
Yeah, I was pretty impressed with it
20:10
I had NIS before, with all kinds of problems left and right
20:11
Figured I'd try my hand at 389 DS, because I saw it recommended somewhere over NIS
20:11
<alkisg>
Btw were you able to connect an ubuntu client to it?
20:11
<Hyperbyte>
Sure
20:11
My terminal server at work runs on the 389-DS
20:11
So will the one at Radio Capelle, once everybody logs out and goes home. ;-)
20:11
<alkisg>
:)
20:11
<Hyperbyte>
At work I also tie in mail accounts on my dedicated server into the 389 LDAP directory

<Hyperbyte>
I have one LDAP domain "recreatie-zorg.nl"
20:12
With two servers below it, "rotterdam" and "germany"
20:12
<vagrantc>
Hyperbyte: recommendations for first pointers on this 389DS?
20:12
<Hyperbyte>
Rotterdam is master server, with all accounts... it replicates to Germany, where the mail/websites are
20:12* alkisg has also read https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ at some point...
20:13
<Hyperbyte>
Replication so that, when Rotterdam goes down (for maintenance or otherwise), the mail accounts are still there
20:13
vagrantc, http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Main_Page
20:13
<vagrantc>
it's a GUI?
20:13
<Hyperbyte>
It's Fedora sponsored project. I think people have ported it to Ubuntu though.
20:13
vagrantc, no. It's most awesome feature is the GUI. But it's a whole directory server.
20:14
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: is it possible to replicate only some part of the users? E.g. we do have an ldap user database for all greek students, could we only extract the users for each specific school and replicate those locally to the school ltsp server?
20:14
<Hyperbyte>
It's slapd, directory server, slapd-admin, administration interface for directory server, and 389-console, GUI console for connecting to the directory administration server
20:14
alkisg, you could create several LDAP domains and replicate them to specific servers I'm sure.
20:15* alkisg wishes the ministry will agree to that at some point... it will make user management ...not a school's work
20:16
<vagrantc>
Hyperbyte: it's not just a frontend to openldap?
20:17
oh, it's already in Debian wheezy
20:18
er, sid only :(
20:20
<Hyperbyte>
vagrantc, no, it's not. :)
20:20
<vagrantc>
it was uploaded shortly before the wheezy freeze :(
20:22
<Hyperbyte>
vagrantc, http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ#How_is_389_different_from_OpenLDAP.3F
20:22
Specifically: http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features
20:23
Multi-master replication would be pretty cool for Alkis's schools... you can set both the local school server as master, as well as your centralized server.... so you can administer accounts on both. People could change passwords locally, you could add/remove accounts centrally
20:24
<vagrantc>
Hyperbyte: i read that, but it doesn't really tell me anything :)
20:25
anyways, we're looking to LDAPify at freegeek, good to have some leads.
20:25
<dead_inside>
Hyperbyte openldap also supports multiple master servers
20:26
<Hyperbyte>
dead_inside, yep. :)
20:28
Pretty awesome stuff all around. Multi-master replication is pretty powerful.
20:28
<dead_inside>
and fun
20:30
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: did you read about http://freeipa.org/page/Main_Page ?
20:30
I think ubuntu wants to integrate that one (along with 389 of course...)
