What's a "zero client"?
02:38
<stgraber>
essentially a graphic card, sound card and USB ports connected to some kind of wire (usually ethernet) but without any CPU or memory
02:38
(though I don't think the term has been standardized, so it may differ from vendor to vendor)
02:39
some call displayLink devices zero-client, some have fancier IP based units (thinking of some of the new HP products)
02:39
<ball>
Hmm... strange.
02:39
<stgraber>
if your next question is whether LTSP works with those things, then the answer is no ;)
02:40
the USB based displayLink units can work with recent Linux kernels, though they don't "boot", they just show up as extra seats on a machine, so LTSP isn't usually used for those (unless you want to LTSP boot the host for those seats, but that's making things pretty complicated)
02:41
<ball>
stgraber: That wasn't going to be my next question.
02:41
<stgraber>
AFAIK the fancy new IP based zeroclient stuff is all proprietary, though some solutions are probably based on Linux I doubt there's much open code for those yet
02:42* ball nods
02:43
<ball>
I think I'd rather have an X terminal anyway.

<dievel>
Hi. I have a problem booting a thin client (Acer Extensa). The boot stops at "Begin Setting up nbd-client..." The Acer has a SiS Ethernet Card. Other Acer model boot fine. I really need help here, any suggestion?
11:08
Nobody? :)

11:17
<alkisg>
dievel: distro/version?
11:19
<dievel>
Edubuntu 12.04LTS.
11:20
I suspect I should change some nbd-client parameter but I can't find where.
11:20
<alkisg>
OK I just saw your message in the mailing list
11:21
!quiet-splash
11:21
<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
11:21
<alkisg>
It's possible that the problem isn't in nbd but later on
11:21
Remove quiet splash like it says above to see more messages
11:23
<dievel>
Yep. I did it :) And the last line is "Begin Setting up nbd-client...Negotiation: ..size=280MB bs=1024, sz=293883904"
11:24
<alkisg>
That means that the nbd mounting was successful
11:24
<dievel>
That's good then :)
11:24
<alkisg>
In the same file, try putting `break=bottom` at the place where `quiet splash` were
11:25
If that works, you'll get an initramfs shell at the client
11:25
<dievel>
Ok. Doing...
11:26
Nice...booting the client
11:27
Nope. Same as before. Well...the last line is "nbd0: unknown partition table" but I see this message on others Clients that boot without problems.
11:31
<muppis>
Uknown partition table -warning is legit (because image doesnt't have it), but meaningless because you do not need it in one partition disk.
11:31
<dievel>
the default file now has "append ro initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/nbd0 init=/sbin/init-ltsp break=bottom nbdroot0=:ltsp_i386
11:32
Ok...good.
11:34
As I read from the documentation the next step is the reading of /etc/event.d dir?
11:35
<alkisg>
dievel: if you don't get a shell with break=bottom, that's a bad thing
11:35
Try with: break=mount
11:35
Do you get a shell that way?
11:36
<dievel>
Right now no. Now I try break=mount.
11:37
Yeah. Now I have the initramfs shell!
11:38
<alkisg>
!nbd-client
11:38
<ltsp>
nbd-client: To try mounting the NBD image from the client initramfs: nbd-client 192.168.67.1 -N /opt/ltsp/i386 /dev/nbd0
11:38
<alkisg>
...put your server IP there
11:38
Ah, and :ltsp_i386 in the name part
11:38
<dievel>
Ok...
11:39
Hu? Sorry, where :ltsp_i386?
11:40
<alkisg>
nbd-client 1.2.3.4 -N ltsp_i386 /dev/nbd0
11:40
I think something like this is needed in the 12.04 ltsp...
11:41
<dievel>
Ok...
11:42
Seems it worked, there was no error.
11:42
Now I still have the shell and I can see the /dev/nbd0 device.
11:44
<alkisg>
dievel: mount /dev/nbd0 /mnt
11:44
ls -l /mnt
11:45dobber has left IRC (dobber!~dobber@213.169.45.222, Read error: Connection reset by peer)
11:46dobber has joined IRC (dobber!~dobber@213.169.45.222)
11:46
<dievel>
In /mnt I cans see the image content, dev...root...and so on. Seems the mount is ok like you said :)
11:46
<alkisg>
So it seems like the problem is between the `break=mount` and the `break=bottom`
11:47
One way to debug this would be to run `set -x` from init, so that there's debug shell output
11:47
Unfortunately the instructions to do that would be rather long... :-/
11:48
<dievel>
Can you tell what's in between the break=bottom and break=mount? Or give me an hint on where to read the set -x activation?
11:49
<alkisg>
cd /tmp
11:49
zcat /boot/initrd.img* | cpio -i
11:49
(those are on the server)
11:49
ah
11:49
again
11:49
cd /tmp
11:49
mkdir init
11:49
cd init
11:49
zcat /boot/initrd.img* | cpio -i
11:50
gedit init
11:50
Search for "maybe_break"
11:51
Ah, there's also "mountroot" there
11:51
dievel: try again with: break=mountroot
11:51
Do you get a shell with that?
11:51
<dievel>
Ok...doing...
11:53
there is a maybe_break mountroot before the maybe_break bottom
11:54
I try to reload with break=mountroot in default file...
11:54
<alkisg>
That's what I proposed, yeah... :)
11:56
<dievel>
Yes, I have the shell again now.
11:57
<alkisg>
That means that the problem is in "mountroot"
11:59
<dievel>
I see...between break=mountroot and break=bottom in the init file I have the "mountroot" and "log_end_msg". Not sure what this does mean.
12:00
<alkisg>
dievel: the "mountroot" is a function call.
12:00
The function is inside the scripts/local file
12:00
dievel: do you see "Running /scripts/local-premount" in the client?
12:00
<dievel>
Checking... :)
12:01
the /scritps/init-premount is run, just before the DHCP request.
12:02
<alkisg>
Nope, check for "local-premount"
12:02
<dievel>
I don't have a local-premount :(
12:02
<alkisg>
Running /scripts/local-top ?
12:03
<dievel>
From shell?
12:03
<alkisg>
No, I mean, do you see that message?
12:04
<dievel>
Nope.
12:04
<alkisg>
"Mounting root file system" ?
12:05
<dievel>
Yes, that one yes.
12:05
<alkisg>
Please type what you see after that one
12:06
<dievel>
"Spawing shell within the initramfs" and then the Busybox shell.
12:07
<alkisg>
dievel: remove the "break=xxx" and check again
12:07
...or type "exit"
12:07
so that the boot process continues
12:08
<dievel>
I tried to run the ORDER script inside local-top and the client hung like before.
12:08
Ok
12:08
<alkisg>
dievel: ah, so it's possible that there's another script that crashes it
12:09
Put the contents of "ORDER", from your server, to pastebin
12:09
!pastebin
12:09
<ltsp>
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.
12:11
<dievel>
Ok, did it.
12:11
Called "dievel ORDER".
12:13
<alkisg>
dievel: no now you paste the http://pastebin.com/xxx url here
12:13
So that we click on it and see what you pasted
12:14
<dievel>
Sorry pastebin.com/9mvGDvRH
12:14
I don't use pastebin very often as you can see. Shame on me.
12:14
<alkisg>
OK, only the nbd and nbd_ltsp entries there
12:14
Nothing else to blame
12:14
<dievel>
Yep
12:15
<alkisg>
(02:04:51 μμ) alkisg: "Mounting root file system" ?
12:15
(02:05:34 μμ) alkisg: Please type what you see after that one
12:15
(02:07:24 μμ) alkisg: dievel: remove the "break=xxx" and check again
12:15
<dievel>
Ok.
12:17
Ok. Stopped like before, no shell.
12:18
<alkisg>
So, what do you see after "mounting root file system"?
12:19
<dievel>
"Begin: Running /scripts/local-top Begin: Setting up nbd-client...Negotiation: ..size=280MB bs=1024 sz=29388883904".
12:20
Same as running ORDER script.
12:20
I could put in the nbd scritp the "set -x". Could it help?
12:22
<alkisg>
Yup
12:22
That will echo the commands that the shell executes, so that you'll see exactly where it hangs
12:23
Also, just a hunch, check if you have some local file system on that client, e.g. usb stick or internal disk, that you can remove
12:23
<dievel>
Ok.
12:24Phantomas has joined IRC (Phantomas!~Phantomas@ubuntu/member/phantomas)
12:29
<otwieracz>
Hm.
12:29
<dievel>
alkisg:Here I am.
12:29
<otwieracz>
Any ideas, why I do not see „rio” and „Xsession” in LDM sessions while they are in /usr/share/xsessions/?
12:31
<dievel>
alkisg: The script end with "echo deadline"
12:32
alkisg: before that "grep -q \[cfg\] /sys/block/nbd0/queue/sheduler" if this can suggesto something.
12:32
<alkisg>
dievel: that means that the script has ended successfully
12:32
Try putting `set -x` in the next script, nbd_ltsp
12:33
<dievel>
Ok
12:35
<alkisg>
dievel: or at the top of the "local" script
12:35
Try that one first
12:37
<dievel>
I just tried at top of nbd_ltsp. It stops at "blkid -s TYPE -o value /dev/nbd0" Trying the local.
12:39
<otwieracz>
Ideas?
12:40
<alkisg>
otwieracz: on your server? with ldminfod?
12:40
<otwieracz>
When LDM is starting i see only „Default” and „Failsafe xterm”.
12:41
in /usr/share/xsessions/ there are Xsession.desktop and rio.desktop (on server)
12:41
(in chroot also)
12:42
<alkisg>
And is ldminfod running on the server?
12:45
<dievel>
alkisg: With the set -x in the local script I see the export of many variables the last line is the launch of /scripts/local-top/nbd_ltsp. This seems to be the script that hang.
12:46
<alkisg>
dievel: put again break=mountroot
12:46
<dievel>
Ok
12:46
<alkisg>
then run the nbd-client xx command manually again
12:47
<otwieracz>
alkisg: Yes, running.
12:47
<alkisg>
And after all that, try: blkid -s TYPE -o value /dev/nbd0
12:47
<dievel>
Ok :)
12:47
<alkisg>
dievel: if it hangs when you manually try that... then yup that's what hangs - and no idea why, but a bug should be filed
12:47
<otwieracz>
Or no.
12:47
Wait.
12:48
alkisg: FIXED.
12:48
12:48
<alkisg>
What was it?
12:48
<otwieracz>
Not running xinetd.
12:48
== not running ldminfod
12:48
<alkisg>
OK
12:49
<otwieracz>
Hm.
12:49
But my .xsession still isnt being run.
12:50
Due to .xsession-errors it is trying to start twm by some reason.
12:51alkisg is now known as work_alkisg
12:52
<dievel>
alkisg: Yes. It hangs even manually. The blkid command. I'll try to understand why. Thanks for the help and for the patient and to teach me some new debug stuff :))

alkisg: Just ad information. I tried to skip the blkid command setting FSTYPE variable at squashfs but after that it hangs on the init-bottom script doing a "test -w /". So there is something wrong with those thin clients hardware. I bet on the network card. BTW, I saw you were the one giving the workaround to the bug described in nbd_ltsp script. My compliments :):)

14:00
I've added all the extra fields.
14:00
Now all that's left is an import.
14:01
Anything you'd like to change in the ods? You said before that all clients running 12.04 were using ltsp-pnp, for example?
14:03
<dievel>
I'd like to add our own ltsp story when It will be working.
14:05
Right now I have a problem with Epoptes. Don't know If I can ask about Epoptes here. I already wrote in edubuntu mailing list :)
14:08
<Hyperbyte>
dievel, not sure. You could try. The LTSP Gods are usually very forgiving if you angry them.
14:13
<dievel>
Hyperbyte: :)) I bet someone already know the solution. If I run Epoptes, I can see the Clients and work with them. But I can't group them because they have the same name but different username. For example I can see "ltsp22 (utente2)" and "ltsp22 (utente3)".
14:14
Going on Screen_0 I can see that the thing client name is the one assigned by the dhcp, like "ltsp20, ltsp21, ltsp22".
14:14
But In Epoptes they look all the same.
14:14
<Hyperbyte>
Actually, thin client is "ltsp" + host part of the IP address
14:15
<dievel>
Yep. I see. I'd like to know how Epoptes detect the name of the client.
14:16
As for the users, I just created them and assigned the epoptes group as in the documentation.

Let me check what other fields you have for filling...
14:35
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, what was the link again to Greek schools thing?
14:36
(see, this is why you should e-mail me those things :P)
14:36

wiki: http://ts.sch.gr/wiki/Linux/LTSP
14:36
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
14:36
I'll fill that in for the "why" part
14:36
Is there an English version of that page?
14:36
<alkisg>
As a story: http://www.ltsp.org/stories/viewstory/?story_id=8&secret=ed1d48
14:36
<Hyperbyte>
Oh, right
14:36
<alkisg>
No, no english version
14:37
Hyperbyte: can one change his story email afterwards?
14:37
E.g. suppose I have that story on my alkisg@gmail account, can I "transfer" the story to some ts.sch.gr mail?
14:38
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, hmm
14:38
Yes, if you still have access to the original e-mail.
14:38
Or if you have the link.
14:38
<alkisg>
Got both - ok
14:39
<Hyperbyte>
They're all running Ubuntu I assume?
14:40
<dievel>
About Epoptes, I see that clients have the same MAC address in the client information tab. And it's the one of the edubuntu server.
14:42
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, Ubuntu version is not stored.
14:42
What LTSP version is Ubuntu 10.04?
14:43
<alkisg>
dievel: I can try helping with that in 5'
14:43
Hyperbyte: moment...
14:43
<dievel>
alksig:Sure... ;)
14:44
Sorry, "alkisg".
14:46
<Hyperbyte>
dievel, hah, if you have problems with his first name, you should try his last name. I've known him for years and still couldn't spell it if my life depended on it probably.
14:47
Georgopoulus I think
14:47
<dievel>
:))))
14:47
<Hyperbyte>
Awe! Almost!
14:47
It should be Georgopoulos, not Georgopoulus
14:48
So close. :(
14:48
<ogra_>
and now in proper greek UTF-8 please :)
14:48
<Hyperbyte>
Hahahah
14:48
<alkisg>
Hahaa
14:48
<Hyperbyte>
My terminal doesn't even support UTF-8. And for good reasons!
14:48* alkisg could never remember Jan's last name properly either
14:48
<alkisg>
I'm sure I'll write 1-2 consonants wrong there
14:48
<Hyperbyte>
Oh, I'm sure.
14:48
At least my first name is easy. :P
14:49
<alkisg>
:)
14:49
And ogra_'s last name is difficult too!!
14:49
<ogra_>
nah, Hyperbyte's neither :P
14:49
<alkisg>
Although I think it's easy typing it in the keyboard... 4 continuous letters at least :D
14:50
<ogra_>
hehe, yeah, only fails on french keyboards
14:50
<alkisg>
dievel: there's a "remote support" option in epoptes, would you like to use that with me?
14:50

AHEM.
14:51
15:42 <Hyperbyte> What LTSP version is Ubuntu 10.04?

Haha
14:54
<alkisg>
dievel: are you working directly on the server, or on a thin client?
14:54
If on a thin client, you also need -noshm
14:54
<dievel>
Now a thin client.
14:54
<alkisg>
Ah sorry
14:54
You'll be using the dialog
14:54
Ignore what I just said :)
14:55
<dievel>
alkisg: which method? VNC or Console?
14:55* Hyperbyte ignores everybody!
14:55
<alkisg>
vnc
14:56
<dievel>
Ok :)
14:56
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, any information on since when those schools have been running LTSP?
14:56
Guess not huh, you haven't deployed them all at once?
14:56
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: hmm no, since some of them might have updated to 12.04
14:57
No, each school does its own installation, so I don't know when they do it
14:57
<Hyperbyte>
Okay
14:57
<dievel>
alkisg: connection failed :(
14:57
<Hyperbyte>
I *think* that if I import this, it should be done.
14:57
Shall I make a database backup first?
14:57* Hyperbyte ponders
14:58
<Hyperbyte>
I'm a "living on the edge"-kinda guy you know.
14:58
<alkisg>
dievel: try from console: x11vnc -noshm -connect 5.54.107.97
14:58
<Hyperbyte>
Nah, I'll make a backup. :P
14:58
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: nah backups are for noobs
14:58
<Hyperbyte>
hehehe
14:58

It's on another room. Moving there ;)
14:58
<alkisg>
dievel: no
14:58
I meant for you to open a gnome-terminal on that thin client
14:58

Oh I can just copy the database in MySQL and run a test import. Duh. :)

One minor detail
15:08
<knipwim>
wow
15:08
<Hyperbyte>
UTF-8 doesn't seem to work somehow. :-D
15:08
???????? ????????? ????????? is using LTSP!
15:09
<alkisg>
Ouch
15:09
<Hyperbyte>
Hahaha
15:09
<knipwim>
almost 60%
15:09
<Hyperbyte>
phpMyAdmin seems to screw up UTF-8 when importing from ODS
15:09
I missed this in my test... that sucks.
15:10
<alkisg>
(05:09:25 μμ) knipwim: almost 60% ==> ouch #2... this doesn't look good in the pie
15:10
<Hyperbyte>
MySQL collation is latin1_swedish_ci
15:10
This doesn't kill UTF-8, does it?
15:11
alkisg, I agree it doesn't -look- good, but it IS reality, isn't it? :P
15:11
<alkisg>
dievel: the problem is that you don't have epoptes-client installed in the chroot,
15:11
and your ltsp version is a bit old, it doesn't expose the ltsp client mac address
15:11
<dievel>
Aaaagh!
15:11
<alkisg>
If you put epoptes-client in the chroot, you'll also be able to control the clients before login
15:12
So while what you say is a valid bug, it's a rare one and one easily solved with proper installation...
15:12
Thanks for the vnc :)
15:12
(closed vnc)
15:12
<Hyperbyte>
Hrm, no, collation is only for sorting. MySQL supports UTF-8
15:12
So the import is going wrong.
15:12
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: no, I'm not sure that it is reality... it's just that we greeks keep better track of our ltsp installations :D
15:13
Hyperbyte: I think e.g. in brazil they have thousands of ltsp installations
15:13
dievel: http://epoptes.org/installation
15:13
<dievel>
Thanks to you.
15:14
<Hyperbyte>
Well, too bad for Brazil then. Maybe they'll be inspired by you!
15:14
<dievel>
alkisg: it's still a default installation. Do you suggest to upgrade ltsp packets?
15:15
<alkisg>
dievel: no - just install epoptes-client in the chroot
15:15
I'll see if I can request an ltsp backport for precise that would fix the mac address thing...
15:17
<dievel>
Yeah... :) That would be great.
15:18
<alkisg>
It's much better if you install epoptes-client in the chroot
15:21
<dievel>
Yeah...now works! I'm the bug then :)

JuJuBee: for one app, I figured out where it installed files to normally and manually copied them into the chroot
17:10
I've not tried netbeans though
17:11
one way to do that is pipe "tree /" to a file, then install and pipe it to another file, then diff the 2 files
17:11
or it might be obvious, like installing to /opt
17:12
<alkisg>

20:14
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: to delete a location, I dropped its ltsplocation table row... is that OK? Any better ways to do that?
20:14
<Hyperbyte>
You should drop both LTSP location and LTSP story
20:14
But it doesn't matter much
20:14
<alkisg>
I wanted to keep the story
20:14
<Hyperbyte>
Without a location, a story isn't counted towards... well... anything... it's just a story sitting in the database, nowhere to be found.
20:14
Although, when I send my mails, the person responsible for it will get an e-mail.
20:15
<alkisg>
2 locations, I wanted to delete 1 of them
20:15
<jammcq>
Hyperbyte: do you have a constraint with 'On DELETE CASCADE' on the location/story so if you drop the location, it removes the stories?
20:15
<Hyperbyte>
jammcq, no... you can technically have stories without a location.
20:15
<jammcq>
hmmm, ok
20:15
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: also, will you send any mails to those greek schools with their "edit story" links? Or should I do it?
20:15
<Hyperbyte>
I don't even think you can delete a location... you could however, not add it.
20:15
alkisg, I can do it en-masse.
20:15
<alkisg>
Cool
20:16
<Hyperbyte>
Although if you want to do it, sure
20:16
<alkisg>
Nah, I just want them to have the "edit location" link
20:16
<Hyperbyte>
Not sure how good your PHP is?

20:42
<Hyperbyte>
In the 169 e-mails I just sent out. :P
20:42
They'll be alright in the 169 next e-mails I will send out though.
20:43
E-mail link was made based on $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] which is only sent during http requests
20:43
Since I'm doing this from console
20:43* alkisg checks a mailbox...
20:43

20:43

www.ltsp.org missing

I'll resent. :-)
20:46
Nah, they went out.
20:46
The mailserver probably isn't done sending them all...
20:46
Oh wow
20:47
Something else was broken
20:47
The script just told me it sent out e-mails to EVERY story in the database, not just the Greek ones
