hrm, if the only change that I make is that I comment out SCREEN_07=kiosk in lts.conf then I can login to the LTSP, but if it's not commented out I get that error... without log files how can I troubleshoot that?

aha! https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp/+bug/816139 fixes it, but alksig has tagged it as fixed (but the same fixed, deleting ${X_ARGS}, just worked for me)

Hi all. Running ubuntu 12.04. We operate two types of hardware as clients. One type does not switch off when asked to shutdown. It hangs (leaving 32 machines on in our computer suite). I have tried appending acpi=force to /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default

16:09
<alkisg>
hi vmlintu, how's it going?
16:10
<vmlintu>
alkisg: good, doing some ltsp hacking again after a while
16:10
alkisg: I was wondering how I should prepare/send patches for ltsp?
16:11
<alkisg>
vmlintu: attach a patch or a branch merge to a launchpad bug report
16:11
!ltsp-bug

ltsp-bug: To file a bug report for upstream LTSP, go to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp

<ltsp>
ubuntu-bug: To file a bug report for Ubuntu LTSP, go to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ltsp
16:11
<vmlintu>
should it be one feature per branch?
16:12
<alkisg>
That would be better, yeah, unless they're closely related features
16:12
<vmlintu>
ok.. I try to remember again how bzr works
16:13
<alkisg>
You don't need bzr to create patches, but if you've worked with it before, it does make generating the patches/debdiffs/branches easier
16:14
<vmlintu>
I used bzr before, but then we switched to git
16:14dgeary2_ has left IRC (dgeary2_!~david@49.176.98.200, Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
16:14
<vmlintu>
But before I create any patches regarding chroot creation, did you have a look at this: http://marc.info/?l=ltsp-discuss&m=135187945718299&w=2 ?
16:15
Does it sound sensible?
16:16
<alkisg>
I've heard about puppet before but I've never used it, I think some other LTSP devs have though, so it'd be better if you asked them instead of me... even via a bug report
16:17
<vmlintu>
How do you manage the desktop settings in your setups?
16:17
highvoltage said that they use bcfg2 which is similar to puppet. I did some googling and there are some puppet rules for ltsp usage around.
16:18Parker955_Away is now known as Parker955
16:20
<alkisg>
Basically we ship an ubuntu live cd which contains gnome-fallback etc preinstalled + preselected
16:20
Then, sch-scripts takes care of some packages + settings, and can even update them with new versions,
16:21
and lastly, for school-local settings, we propose mandatory gconf/dgconf settings, so that they cannot be overridden by students
16:21
<vmlintu>
ok, so you have your own tools to do the same
16:23
well, I'll prepare a branch with the plugin and examples so people can try it out
16:24
<alkisg>
Btw, I'm not using ltsp-build-client anymore at all... so I'm not active in that part of the code
16:24
<vmlintu>
you are using only ltsp-pnp?
16:24
<alkisg>
Yeah
16:25
<vmlintu>
This would pretty much do the same as the puppet rules can be used to configure the server also
16:25
So one could use the same rules with ltsp-built-client or with ltsp-pnp
16:27
Btw, how do you get nvidia and fglrx to work together with ltsp-pnp?
16:27
<alkisg>
If one needs specialized hardware, he can have a template client where he generates the image
16:28
But generally we don't install proprietary drivers except for smartboards
16:29
Some drivers as so dumb that they won't even get through the installation if they don't see the hardware present... having a template client works around that
16:29
<vmlintu>
ok.. we've been using hacked versions that configure nvidia/fglrx during boot time and they are both installed in the chroot image
16:29
<alkisg>
For nvidia and fglrx, I'm hoping that in 14.04 they'll be able to coexist with all the other xorg drivers without problems
16:30
I've been thinking about that, but don't you also need a different initramfs image?
16:30
AFAIK nvidia puts some stuff in the initramfs for plymouth etc...
16:30
<vmlintu>
no, we have just one image and initramfs
16:31
<alkisg>
So I didn't want to take the time to make wrapper scripts for all that... but if you did, they could probably be accepted upstream, even if in distro-specific subdirs...
16:31
<vmlintu>
the problem with those is that one needs to run ldconfig at boottime so it slows it a bit
16:32dobber has left IRC (dobber!~dobber@213.169.45.222, Remote host closed the connection)
16:32
<vmlintu>
Basically the packages we have work only with traditional ltsp images. I'd guess that they'd break also in ltsp-pnp model
16:32
<alkisg>
Isn't it possible to just mv the nvidia files if they're not used?
16:34
The way I was thinking was to have the nvidia/fglrx glx libraries dpkg-diverted, and then mv or symlink them in the correct place from init-ltsp.d
16:34
<vmlintu>
nvidia replaces some libraries with its own files, so one needs to run ldconfig
16:34
<alkisg>
dpkg-divert won't get past that?
16:35
<vmlintu>
not before at least.. I actually haven't tried that with really new versions, but used the old method
16:36
<alkisg>
Anyways, I think I'll wait until all the proprietary drivers can be installed alongside other drivers, and only activated if the hardware is present
16:36
So then we'll be able to install all nvidia-* versions, not just -current
16:36primeministerp has joined IRC (primeministerp!~ppouliot@71.174.244.26)
16:36
<alkisg>
As many schools need older nvidia-* drivers
16:36Parker955 is now known as Parker955_Away
16:37
<vmlintu>
having them behaving well with others would be really nice
16:37
<alkisg>
I wonder if it can be done from the debian/ubuntu packaging, or if some paths are hardcoded upstream in the blob..
16:40
<vmlintu>
don't really know that..
16:40
I have to get going now, though..
16:40
thanks!

hey alkisg
17:22
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp/+bug/816139 seems to be affecting me (following that workaround allows me into X), should I open a bug?
17:34
<alkisg>
lee: that "no longer affects" just means that it's an upstream bug, not an ltsp bug
17:34
So the bug is still open... I'm guessing no developer had time to test the kiosk mode since it was filed
17:35
*not an ubuntu bug, sorry
17:36
I don't know why the kiosk mode would need a xorg config file, so someone should look into fixing the bug, removing xargs isn't a proper solution
17:37

It is ok to run a different kernel in the client image than the server? i.e. 3.2.0-23 in the client and 3.2.0-32 in the server? If so, do I just (i) chroot into the image and apt-get install the kernel, then (ii) ltsp-update-kernels?
18:37
<vagrantc>
should be no pproblem
18:38
i'd recommend using "ltsp-chroot apt-get install linux-image-FOO" ; ltsp-update-kernels
18:39
<johnsonmlw>
thank you - I'm trying to troubleshoot a pesky poweroff hanging problem on some of the clients. I'll give this a shot tomorrow.
18:39
point noted about ltsp-chroot tool
18:40
do you ltsp-update-image after? or no need?
18:50

depends on what version you're running...

does anybody installed edubuntu 12.04 ltsp in a virtualized environment like proxmox ve?
20:20
i did it but i do not understand why do i get low performance after a while the system function with only one or two users
20:20
is this suppose to happen?
20:21
i reserved 2 sockets each with 2 cores and 3 gb of ram for the ltsp
20:21
but i get no good performance for the users connected to it
20:28
<||cw>
ltspuser_02: how many core on the host?

hey all, I updated to wheezy and had a lot of crap trouble, but I got it all back up, but now ltsp-update-image throws up errors about mksquashfs failed with memory corruption (I found something similar on google that said that proc was still mounted, but that has been fixed and it obviously auto unmounts it)
23:14
<vagrantc>
do you explicitly want NBD support?
23:14
<kev_j>
I think I want it
23:15
<vagrantc>
might want to try with the defaults, get those working, and then work on NBD later.
23:15
<kev_j>
yeah, true
23:15
how do I get it back to defaults?
23:15
<vagrantc>
though that sounds like a pretty serious bug.
23:15
don't bother with ltsp-update-image
23:16
with wheezy, it should be fairly easy to switch back and forth between NFS and NBD
23:17
but the default install is for NFS
23:18
<kev_j>
right, and I had switched it off of NFS
23:18
using ltsp-config
23:18
<vagrantc>
i need to do some final testing of LTSP in wheezy, it's been a while since i've put it through it's paces.
23:19
<kev_j>
well I probably messed a few things up in switching to wheezy, so... yeah
23:20
it will load ltsp but it does the "no server found" or whatever thing after typing the pass
23:23
although I have not had the chance to restart the system because the staff would bitch at me
23:23
more than they are...
23:24
<vagrantc>
ah, you need to update the ssh keys
23:24
<kev_j>
already tried that, but if I can't update the image that won't work will it?
23:25
<vagrantc>
nope
23:26
<kev_j>
so I don't know if this is how, but would this http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=637926 switch it back to nfs? or just ignore it
23:27
this is what the last line says when it fails "/usr/sbin/ltsp-update-image: line 152: 21118 Aborted $nice $ionice mksquashfs "$cu_chroot" "$imgdir/$name.img.tmp" -no-recovery -noappend -wildcards ${EXCLUDE_FILE:+-ef "$EXCLUDE_FILE"} ${EXCLUDE:+-e "$EXCLUDE"} ${NO_COMPRESS:+-noF -noD -noI -no-exports}

kev_j: no, it's changed in recent versions
23:31
kev_j: you don't want to delete that file anymore
23:32
<kev_j>
ok... crap.... so how do I go about it? I couldn't find anything about it in ltsp-config
23:32
<vagrantc>
kev_j: instead, edit it, and configure the BOOT_METHODS="NFS NBD"
23:32
and then: ltsp-chroot /usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels ; ltsp-update-kernels
23:40
<kev_j>
is there somewhere I can get a copy of it if I deleted it before I asked, or do I have to redo the build client thingy
23:46Phantomas has joined IRC (Phantomas!~Phantomas@ubuntu/member/phantomas)
23:49
<vagrantc>
it's shipped as part of the ltsp-client-core package, so you could reinstall just that package to get a clean copy
23:50PhoenixSTF has left IRC (PhoenixSTF!~rudi@78.29.132.86, Quit: Leaving)
23:50
<kev_j>
so apt-get install -reinstall ltsp-client-core?
23:51
<vagrantc>
ltsp-chroot apt-get install --reinstall ltsp-client-core
23:51
<kev_j>
ohhh duh, thanks

<kev_j>
hrm, so I don't know why, but ltsp-client-core didn't seem to get it back, but I accidentally installed it on the base system (probably why I should start using ltsp-chroot more often) and it put it on the base system
