I am a complte newbie
when it comes to linux, and even more with the LTSP
So I am sorry for the stupid question I am about to ask
but I really have not been able to find a straight answer anywahere
so here it goes...
once you have installed the LTSP server, and have setup your client evriroment onyour server
how to do I set up the thin clients... Do i just load any linux distro
in the client
no, the clients boot their operating system over the network
you need to enable the PXE bootrom in the bios
ok.... So what do I do...
tell me about your client, what is it?
I have not one yet... I am doing all this just to build some lunix server skills
I was thinking to use a netbook
I have laying around the house
well... you need to see if the netbook has PXE in the bios
ok... so that's it... just go to the bios look into the boot options
for PXE set it up as my first boot up option
yes, if you are lucky
|02:58||* ball thinks about cellos.|
Thanks a lot!... Sorry for the retard question!! ;) Thanks
What do you mean If I am lucky?
well... it's not so much luck.
which distro did you install on your server?
ltspuser_95: Let us know how you get on.
I installed ubuntu server 12.04.2
you'll probably be just fine
then I went to DOCs here and followed the command intructions
then i was a like ok... what Now? Here I am
Out of interest, does your server have two network interfaces?
it has one 1g NIC
do i need to buy another one?
Does your network have a DHCP server on it that isn't the Linux host?
the router itself is the DHCP server
jammcq: Is that likely to cause him or her issues?
I just booted up my laptop in to the BIOS
I am under boot options... and it shows the GB Ethernet Controller
so in theory all I should do is to set that up as my first boot options
well yeah, you'll need to configure extra things in the dhcp server and you may not be able to with that router
and it should wor
so I need to buy a new NIC
ltspuser_95: You may want to consider adding another network interface to your Linux host.
ltspuser_95: in your router, you'll need to configure 'next-server' and 'root-path' and possible a few other things
I see... I don't know what are those but I am sure I will find out
cool thanks for the info

Hi vagrantc, hi all
alkisg: so, i committed two patches to the ltsp-debian-packaging branch that i think should hit wheezy.
alkisg: including the one you just submitted
I just saw the mail notification, cool!
alkisg: but i won't have time to really test till march 5th at the earliest
|04:01||* alkisg hopes vagrantc won't tell him to test, as he doesn't have a debian ltsp installation handy...|
I think jammcq has one though
Hey, it's Spring! Good month to all too....
getting it tested sooner than later would definitely be good! :)
indeed, I have a wheezy ltsp server
alkisg: i'm still behind the times in last monthh
jammcq: do you think you could test: http://bugs.debian.org/701916 ?
jammcq: reproduce the problem with what's currently in wheezy, and then patch the file and test again?
|04:05||* vagrantc really wants to move forward on this, but is busy this weekend|
best i can do is try it sometime tomorrow.
my ltsp server is a bit of a mess. I've got it configured in kiosk mode with no user login
it just goes directly into Icewm
if i get some "patch works for me" comments, at least, that'll help me when i can get back to it tuesday
well... tomorrow afternoon should be good
proably want to try on a more conventional chroot
I can build a new one
I'll start that building now
alkisg: do you have specific apps that tend to stay running?
is there an arg to ltsp-build-client for fat clients?
i.e. this bug is pretty much a non-issue with, say, xterm.
|04:09||* vagrantc always makes fatclients by hand|
vagrantc: I think the most common local dirs after logout are .pulse and .gconf
but there may be an arg...
--extra-help says to use '--fat-client-desktop'
yup, --fat-client-desktop gnome
but... that doesn't work
or --fat-client-desktop icewm
thats' the ticket
I can test it tomorrow
i never thought to test if, by some magic, wheezy just wasn't even affected :)
I'll test it out before the patch, see if I can make nasty things happen
and then patch it
should be able to apply the patch in place, i think.

I need to find some thin client boxes soon.
Need more disk drives first though and a switch.
...and some pie.

hey, i'm using debian 7 64-bit as ltsp-server and also for the client rootfs. i want to use an xfreerdp session with the rdpdr plugin. i can see "usbdisks on thinclient" in the windows session, but there's nothing in it.
when i manually mount the plugged in usbstick on the thinclient to a folder in /media/root (which i have passed as an argument to the plugin), i can also access it on the windows session
so the question is: how do i get the thin-client to automacially mount it?

hi ppl :) hi alkisg :) Today I've updated and returned a ltsp server to a primary school... and I've discovered a problem only when I was there (and I've solved). After 15 min the screen locks and (fat client) you can't unlock with the password. Is there a list of settings you usually do in gnome for all these stuff?
ops, alkisg is not here anymore
anyone else? :)
What is "all these stuff"?
Settings in Gnome for disabling screen locking, you mean?
But didn't you just say you already solved this? :)
Hyperbyte: kde has global config features, even if you have to do by hand
so I configured double click instead of single, num lock, etc.
but wondered if there are other that would be a good idea set
|14:39||designbybeck has joined IRC (email@example.com)|
markit, ah, you mean if there's global configuration available for Gnome
|14:45||mikkel has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Quit: Leaving)|
Check out gconf, and, since Gnome 3, dconf
Hyperbyte: yes, so I can "steal" some further good ideas
Hyperbyte: ok, but for LTSP, what are standard settings that is good do?
With gconf/dconf you can set three types of settings really: per-used settings, default settings, mandatory settings
I've created ruby scripts to install and configure with kde, would love to "extend" them for gnome as well
With gconf/dconf you don't need scripts. You just set the mandatory configuration in the files/database and you're done.
For example, over here I have a custom widget for the company, I've configured that as mandatory for -all- users
Same with other things, like desktop background and things...
Hyperbyte: you misunderstood me
with kde you don't need scripts either
but instead of do a setup manually (and do a lot of mistakes), I've automated the settings with a ruby script
that does the job for me
so wondering if you can call gconf from command line and give it the settings you want as a parameter
You only do this once per server though, you understand that right?
Anyway, gconftool-2 or dconf commands.
yes, once per server

Can anyone point me to a good tool or way to manage users .bashrc or .cshrc files/environment and also customize their desktops? I'm running LTSP cluster, and I would like for their home directories to be within our existing AFS file system, not on the specific application server they're on. I feel like someone has to have done this before. Obviously I need a way to modify /etc/passwd or something to get the home directories to be on the network. Sin
I'm using AFS, its all kerberos/ticket based stuff and pam sessions. Maybe its not doable unless I use ldap? thanks for any advice
mikec: you can't just mount /home as AFS?
mikec: or you want individuals homedirs mounted on login?
individuals. for example, in AFS, my home directory is located in /u/m/i/mikec, so the path is different for each user
you might be able to use libpam-mount
maybe there's a way I can modify /etc/passwd on each application server to read in the /etc/passwd information from an AFS server, that would have the correct paths
libpam-mount sounds intriguing
but probably the simplest way to not need to edit /etc/passwd and /etc/group and whatnot is usind LDAP or a SQL backend to pam/nss
currently users log in with their AFS username/password and the pam session module will successfully check against the krb realm, get them a ticket granting ticket, as well as an AFS token. works beautifully, but it puts the user in /home on the server they're running their session off of.
because it creates a mirrored local user
for the home directory
thats the one thing i would like to change
since i already have everything set up in their AFS user directories appropriately, it would solve a lot of other issues
libpam-mount probably sounds like the ticket, then.
alright - cool. i will look into that and see
thanks for the tip
|17:59||* vagrantc should really explore AFS and kerberos|
