Hello everyone, i need some help with a LTSP setup that i have been troubleshooting
12:27
I am running the LTSP server on a virtual machine configured as explained in the website, when i start the client (in another VM) with bridged connection it doesnt boot and its getting an adress from another ip range
12:28
<markit>
Guest27311: I think you have another dhcp server on the lan, no?
12:29
<Guest27311>
umm yeah that's true the Router is assigning the Ip adress in the network, the LTSP has a static ip address though
12:31
is there any way to by-pass that cause i really just want to test this
12:32
im running this on Ubuntu 12.04

12:37
<Guest27311>
?
12:39
<markit>
but the clients get ip from dhcp
12:39
and if your dhcp gives them a wrong ip and not info about where load the linux kernel and chroot install, you are doomed
12:39
I've to run in a short time
12:40
<Guest27311>
your right
12:40
but thanks for the info markit
12:40
<markit>
the best thing should be have the ltsp server use 2 interfaces
12:40
one going to wan and one dedicated for clients
12:41
then you plug the clients to that interface
12:41
and they will get the dhcp settings of ltsp server, if properly configured
12:41
<lee>
or just temporarily disable dhcp in your router
12:41
<markit>
or try ltsp-pnp (google for that)
12:41
lee: also :)

<Hyperbyte>
Hi!
15:51
<student>
hi hyperbyte ... pls help me
15:52
<Hyperbyte>
!ask
15:52
<ltsp>
ask: Don't ask to ask a question, simply ask it, and if someone knows the answer, they'll respond. Please hang around for at least a full hour after asking a question, as not everybody constantly monitors the channel.
15:52
<Hyperbyte>
:)
15:53
lee, try this:
15:53
!quiet-splash
15:53
<ltsp>
quiet-splash: to disable the splash screen in Ubuntu, in order to see any boot error messages, run sudo gedit /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default and remove quiet splash plymouth:force-splash vt.handoff=7
15:53
<Hyperbyte>
Then you can see -where- it's hanging.

<andygraybeal>
brothas, i'm getting LTSP running in Zentyal!!!
16:27
this is awesome.
16:27
i pushed for this last year, and it is a reality this year!
16:27
that is all.. just a stupid announcement. i just feel very empowered :)
16:35
<lee>
I was going to check out zentyal but I can't remember why...
16:36
<andygraybeal>
aye, for me it's great. i am not very smart at this stuff.. and zentyal helps bridge my gaps (wow lots of innuendo in that statement)
16:36
if your smart, you don't need it.
16:36
<lee>
ahhh yes, aiming to be a linux powered SBS
16:37
if it wasn't sold on a monthly basis I'd've bought maybe 5 copies by now
16:37
<andygraybeal>
i need a group of people that aren't very smart to be able to step into my role and be able to handle my job easily. and so far zentyal is the answer.
16:37
well, it is free
16:37
there is a community version and that is what i use
16:37
<lee>
yeah
16:38
I dunno, I'm just not keen on too much magic
16:38
<andygraybeal>
like for instance, ldap, kerberos, postfix, and bind... that was my nightmare before zentyal.
16:38
<lee>
yeah, that's actually why I was looking at it this time around
16:39
<andygraybeal>
i got ltsp down, i got proxies down, i got samba down.. i understand most of what zentyal does already without needing zentyal... but ldap, kerb, bind, and postfix... wtf kinda mindfuck is this.
16:39
<lee>
but I've just spent a couple of weeks playing with LTSP and relearning how to do all the nifty stuff I used to know how to do in linux and now I have an almost working PXE booting environment, router, web filter, and locked down workstations
16:40
<andygraybeal>
yea, i run a router and firewall with bsd and PF.. bt that even turned into PFSense after no one i worked with would ever understand PF alone.
16:40
<lee>
heh, fortunately for me that's not a situation I am likely to have to deal with as at work users don't have their own logins and we don't need email, just the webapp to run the order system
16:40
<andygraybeal>
that sounds good :)
16:40
<lee>
check out firehol on linux, it is basically a human friendly way to generate iptables rules

16:40
<andygraybeal>
well, now wtih zentyal, i don't have to wrry to much about iptables
16:41
<lee>
yeah, 'til you get some weirdness =)
16:41
<andygraybeal>
hahaha
16:41
yea, pfsense manages most of everything i need
16:41
my vpn's are handled with a HP switch
16:43
i tried to integrate ldap with ltsp and i failed miserably. but last night, because of zentyal, not only do i have ldap and ltsp, i hvae KERBY!!!!! fuck yea, talking 3 headed dawg up in this shit.
16:45
not my vpn's i mean my virtual networks. my vpn is handled with pfsense
16:49
but ltsp didn't exist in zentyal last year! this year it does.
16:49
it's pretty neat to have had a little bit of a voice in that,.
16:49
i was all like. bitches why ain't no ltsp in my zent, yall?
