hi alkisg, a little note.. in /etc/udev/rulses.d/70-persistent-net-rules or something like that, I renamed interfaces to have eth0 the MB nic, and eth1 and eth2 the additional ones to bound. I've noticed that with kernel 3.5, and it's the second time it happens, this does not work anymore, and you end with an "unamed2" interface. I've found no workaround just had to surrender to the automatic assignment. Also only eth1 is "frozen" with a mac-address, other are
12:38
not listed in that file with 3.5 (I deleted the file). Just to make you aware of this
12:38
(BTW I'm at work now)
12:40
<alkisg>
markit: I haven't noticed any issues with 3.5 and persistent udev rules
12:40
I'll keep that in mind though
12:42shawnp0w1rs is now known as shawnp0wers
12:42shawnp0wers has joined IRC (shawnp0wers!~spowers@linuxjournal/staff/shawnp0wers)
12:46
<markit>
alkisg: do you rename ethx also there? I mean if you have line 1 with eth1 and line2 with eth0, you swap the "eth1" string with "eth0"? Also try to move the file to /root and reboot to see how many items are generated, in my fist server I had a lot of troubles and I had to remove the additional nics and re-install one by one, but was a simple old PC used as "server" so maybe not well designed for that
12:48
<alkisg>
markit: yes that's the place to edit eth* names
12:49
Although I once saw that they were planning to name interfaces based on their bus position etc
12:49
Maybe they're doing that on the server edition, dunno
12:50
<markit>
dmesg and googling, but don't recall the detail, seems that the answer is a name clash among kernel and udev
12:50
so the "collided" ethX is renamed "unamed2"
12:50
and left so
12:51
I thought was just a hw problem of that pc until yesterday when I had the same after 3.5 upgrade, but no time to investigate further

i'm around
13:52
the whole day today, and in the evenings the rest of the week
13:52

<sbalneav>
I'm committed to being here all this week, 8:30 am CST to 8:30 PM cst.
13:56
But I forgot my phone at home today, but I have my tablet, so if we want to get a google hangout underway...
13:56
<mgariepy>
sorry i can't hang around.
13:57
<sbalneav>
I am at work. I might have to leave here and there for a bit, but they understand I'm mostly working on LTSP this week.
13:58
Be back in a few, I have one bit of business to take care of.

14:19
<jammcq>
should we be meeting in #ltsp-meeting? or just hang out here?
14:22
also, can we talk about our goals for this hack-a-thon?
14:23
<sbalneav>
Sure can.
14:23
But alkisg has left, and the others aren't here. :)

<vmlintu>
Is the plan to use libnss-sshsock or libnss-extrausers?
15:05
In my testing libnss-extrausers has been working nicely
15:10
<sbalneav>
vmlintu: probably extrausers. sshsock was a nice idea, but it has one flaw.
15:10
when you need the groups is when you're shutting down the root-owned socket, and starting the user owned socket.
15:10
that's exactly when you need the user info, and that's exactly when the socket isn't available :)
15:11
I didn't think that through enough, obviously :)
15:11
<vmlintu>
yep.. :) I thought that you'd come up with some magic for that
15:11
But after using extrausers for that I'd say that it works nicely
15:13
I'm using this script now to create the files for nss-extrausers: https://github.com/opinsys/puavo-ltsp/blob/master/client/puavo-ltsp-login
15:13
It fetches the information from LDAP using GSSAPI authentication, so it's probably not good for normal ltsp..
15:14
<sbalneav>
The one thing I *don't* like about extrausers is that there's only one file.
15:14
ideally, what I'd like is for there to be:
15:15
A directory where you can place passwd, group, and shadow files of any name.
15:15
an environment variable that points to the PARTICULAR file(s) you're supposed to use.
15:15
that way, you could support multiple logins on multiple screens.
15:16
I may fork extrausers and add this functionality.
15:16
but for now, it'll do to get things going.

<ltspuser_55>
hello everyone
15:20
I wanted to know what happens when i run out if space on my server
15:21
i mean for example if i run out of space on my server ad i add another hardrive will ltsp automatically use that drive or would i have to run a command to tell it to do so
15:22
Sorry for the trouble i am for the first time will be using a server
15:22
<vmlintu>
sbalneav: yes, that'd be a cleaner solution than just writing multiple users to the extrausers files
15:23
<ltspuser_55>
sorry but can u tell me how to do that
15:23
or could you refer me to any kind of documentation
15:25
your help is really appreciated
15:25
<vmlintu>
ltspuser_55: That doesn't have anything to do with ltsp. You need to add the harddrive to the system like you would without ltsp. Depending on how your system is setup.
15:26
<ltspuser_55>
so u are saying if i would add a hardrive then everything would be back to normal and it would be automatically used?
15:26
<hateIE10>
probably you need to add the new space to your samba server then your thin clients can access it over the network
15:27
<ltspuser_55>
thank you really
15:27
<vmlintu>
ltspuser_55: normally systems do not use automatically new drives. What kind of setup do you have?
15:28
<ltspuser_55>
i have a ubuntu 12.04 lts with the ;tsp server
15:28
running on a desktop
15:28
with intel core i7 2600k and asus p8z68 v-pro
15:28
i just used my desktop and made it a server

we'll be watching you desktop computer abuser
15:29
<ltspuser_55>
Can i just fuse all the hardrives together into one big harddrive?
15:30
<vmlintu>
ltspuser_55: if you set it up using LVM, yes
15:31
<ltspuser_55>
can u please refer me any links which tells me how to do so
15:31
?
15:32
<knipwim>
google ubuntu lvm
15:32
<alkisg>
sbalneav: we can have /var/run/ltsp/screenXX.passwd and group files, and have a script to merge all of them into a single file for extrausers
15:33
<vmlintu>
ltspuser_55: I usually use this myself: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/
15:33
<jammcq>
ltspuser_55: you need a good Linux System Administration book
15:33
<ltspuser_55>
yes
15:33
all help is really appreciated
15:36
<alkisg>
vmlintu: you're using pam_krb5 with ldap, right? Any downsides there?
15:37
<vmlintu>
alkisg: yes, pam_krb5 for login, then a script to fetch data from ldap using the user kerberos credentials and writing them to extrausers
15:37
alkisg: so far it's been working perfectly
15:38
No need to write any authentication code or use ssh sockets
15:38
Our fat clients do not open ssh socket at all
15:38
<alkisg>
vmlintu: why do you need extrausers? Can you have the ltsp clients be ldap clients themselves?
15:38
*can't
15:40
<vmlintu>
alkisg: We could, but some systems have some 10k users in ldap. We used nss-ldapd before, but it makes a lot of unnecessary calls, so we made this as a speed optimization.

15:41
<alkisg>
vmlintu: I see... so, if sbalneav implements the ssh authentication, will you have any reasons to use kerberos then?
15:41
Also, fats now can't use remoteapps, right?
15:41
<sbalneav>
Working on getting a chroot setup now.
15:41
<vmlintu>
alkisg: sssd works much better in that way, but I couldn't figure out how it could be configured securely in this case
15:42
<ltspuser_55>
Thank You guys for all thehelp and i have decided to use the lvm to mange disk space
15:42
<vmlintu>
alkisg: nfs4 needs the kerberos ticket, so we need to use pam_krb5
15:42
alkisg: we are not using remoteapps now, but we can open applications on the server with ssh using the kerberos credentials
15:43
<sbalneav>
alkisg: well, the problem with that is that you may not want one user to "see" group permissions from another user on the same terminal. That seems rather silly, but a second problem could be where you have two logins, both with the same uid, but called different thinngs
15:43
like say: fred:x:1000 and on a different machine bob:x:1000
15:44
<alkisg>
sbalneav: but even if extrausers supported that, linux wouldn't, right?
15:44
So each user could then see the other user's processes...
15:44
Linux doesn't support having 2 different users with the same UID, does it?
15:45
vmlintu: Gotcha... but then if all these can be done with existing tools, why do we need libpam_sshauth at all? Maybe sbalneav could help with selecting + finding appropriate configurations for these tools instead?

15:46
<sbalneav>
alkisg: Well, it would, since they're two different machines.
15:46
<alkisg>
sbalneav: aren't we talking about localapps and fats for that?
15:46
I.e. extrausers would run on the client, no?
15:47
<sbalneav>
extrausers will run all the time, now.
15:47
even in a pure thin setup.
15:47
<alkisg>
But on the client, not on the server, correct?
15:47
<sbalneav>
since any display manager wants to fork/exec as the user.
15:48
<alkisg>
So if screen05 pointed to server1 with bob:1000, and screen06 pointed to server2 with fred:1000, then both bob and fred would have to exist locally on the client with id=1000, which is something that linux wouldn't support anyway
15:48
<sbalneav>
right, but if you've got two ltsp screens, one logging into server a, and another to server b, and they're not configured "well", then they may run into an issue.
15:48
<alkisg>
That's where our merging script should step in and say "you can't login a second time due to conflicts in users"
15:48
<vmlintu>
alkisg: if one has kerberos+ldap setup (samba4 should be fine too), then libpam-sshauth should not be needed
15:49
<alkisg>
vmlintu: I'm very interested in samba4 and kerberos... it would be very nice if you wrote a wiki page for it on ltsp.org or somewhere else
15:50
<vmlintu>
alkisg: I have never used samba4 myself, so I cannot say much about that. I've been reading about it lately to understand what it does..
15:51
<alkisg>
As I understand it, if we used it in ltsp, we could have windows clients authenticating against the ltsp server too, both physical and LTSP VMs
15:52
<vmlintu>
yes, that should be possible
15:53
We are now using samba3 for that, but without AD domain, of course
15:54
<sbalneav>
Woot. OK, got a booting chroot. Now to see if I can get lightdm going.

16:02
<alkisg>
vmlintu: a PPA with the fixes would be nice!!!
16:02
We could copy stuff from your PPA and you could copy from ours this way
16:03
<vmlintu>
alkisg: right now the patches are on nbd-general mailing list, we don't have a package with those ourselves either
16:03
There's also now a patch that adds some reconfiguration support for nbd-server without a restart: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=20130310202558.GA19331%40lakka.kapsi.fi&forum_name=nbd-general
16:04
<alkisg>
vmlintu: anything that wouter found acceptable for upstream?
16:05
<vmlintu>
alkisg: Some patches are still being worked on. The goal is to move initialization parts after forking so that the main process won't die if something goes wrong.
16:06
alkisg: We'll do some changes to our package builders so that it produces a public apt repo for public packages. We'll start working on that once nbd is fixed.
16:07
<alkisg>
public apt repo != launchpad... /me loves the "copy from/to PPA" launchpad feature :)

16:08
mgariepy: do you have a little time to talk about the client parts of ltsp-cluster?
16:08
<vmlintu>
alkisg: how fast are the ppa builders now? Last time we tried using them it took days even for simple packages to get built..
16:09
<alkisg>
We're implementing a new configuration system for LTSP and I think it'll also be able to cover the ltsp-cluster-client needs... it's using wget to send variables to the server and receive configuration at different boot phases
16:09
initramfs, init, screen-script, login, logout, shutdown
16:09
Are those enough to cover the cluster needs? Can we remove all other cluster references from the ltsp sources?
16:10
(the idea for ltsp6 is to start with a clean tree, and devs will slowly import parts from ltsp5 over... not all the old code will be copied)
16:11
<sbalneav>
Anyone up for a goooooooooooooooooogle hangout?
16:11
<alkisg>
vmlintu: it depends on how busy launchpad is, e.g. on a release it might take 20+ hours, while when the ubuntu-devs aren't that busy with uploads, it may take 10 minutes...

sbalneav: now that I remember, if you use the lightdm-gtk-greeter in ubuntu, it has a bug that the configuration file needs to be in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and sessions in /usr/share/xsessions. I tried changing those using the -c switch for lightdm, but it doesn't work.
16:32
I don't know if unity-greeter has the same bug

I just switched back to using the default file + xsessions dir

16:37

Hi!
18:33

Lo!
18:33
<Hyperbyte>
So, today is the LTSP hackathon kickoff? :-)
18:39
<vagrantc>
so i hear
18:42
<mgariepy>
alkisg, the client part of ltsp-cluster is almost the same as ltsp-not-cluster. the only difference is where the lts.conf file come from plus the ""logging""
18:47
<sbalneav>
Hyperbyte: I been hacking since I got in :)
18:49
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: what's the best way to help you out, then? dunno what you're working on exactly.
18:49
today is pretty much my only day, more or less
18:50
<Hyperbyte>
sbalneav, yeah, what are you hacking? ;-)
18:51
<vagrantc>
i guess i could set up a CentOS server or something and test out what Enslaver's been working on...
18:52* vagrantc takes a look at http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Dev:Hackathon_2013.03
18:52
<sbalneav>
vagrantc, Hyperbyte: So, what I'm working on at the moment is hacking up a chroot to the point where I can get a log in using lightdm.
18:53
I can handle the C stuff and the hacking stuff, but once I identify the changes, I'm clueless as to how to integrate them into the ltsp-build-client, and how to package all of it.
18:54
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: we'd probably want to integrate it into init-ltsp.d rather than ltsp-build-client
18:54
i.e. make the tweaks at runtime
18:55
<sbalneav>
So what I'm hoping for, out of this week, is that I can do this initial work, I tell you what I had to change to make it work, you package it up however, then I rebuild the client. Once that works flawlessly for a "plain old" login (i.e. no localdevs, no sound, no localapps, no fat client) then we start adding back the functionality a layer at a time.
18:55
sound, then devs, then localapps, then phat.
18:55
Does that seem reasonable?
18:56
<vagrantc>
sounds reasonable... though i might want to try fatclients first :)
18:56
since it's should be relatively easy, no?
18:56* vagrantc would really like to be able to select fat or thin client at login time
18:58
<vagrantc>
Enslaver: where would i start to test your code, short of not knowing much of anything about RHEL, CentOS or Fedora? My hunch is I'd like to set up a CentOS server to test it out... recommendations?
19:00
<sbalneav>
So, here's something I don't understand.
19:00
Debian wheezy server, debian wheezy chroot, both amd64
19:00
I've installed lightdm.
19:01
On the server, I can look at /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/init.d, and there's a lightdm there
19:01
when I boot the thin client, it's not there.
19:01
Is something removing it?
19:01
ls
19:01
<vagrantc>
probably something from /opt/ltsp/amd64/usr/share/ltsp/init-ltsp.d/*
19:01
remove-services or some such
19:02
sbalneav: in lts.conf: KEEP_SYSTEM_SERVICES=lightdm
19:03
<sbalneav>
found it.
19:03
<vagrantc>
specifically, /opt/ltsp/amd64/usr/share/ltsp/init-ltsp.d/50-rm-system-services
19:04
sbalneav: basically, in order to support ltsp-pnp, we do (nearly) all filesystem mangling at boot, rather than during ltsp-build-client
19:05
that way installing LTSP related packages doesn't "break" a normal install ... so ltsp features are enabled at boot only if asked for.
19:07
makes it really easy to set up fatclient installs ... but is a little confusing when the booted filesystem doesn't look quite like the filesystem on the server.
19:10
<sbalneav>
Got it. Hacking things up now.

Workin' on it. :) I'm going to try to get it all into the ltsp-init.d format here.
20:13
gimme an hour or so. I'll probably end up blowing away the chroot and starting fresh, so as to make sure I got my p's and q's right.
20:14* vagrantc struggles with getting virt-manager to select a CD to boot from

20:22* sbalneav is so happy to be back to an nfs chroot :)
20:22
<jammcq>
it's kinda refreshing, eh?
20:22
it's nice to work with, but then when I get everything all settled, I like to make a nbd image cuz it boots faster

glad i stuck with making sure NFS doesn't get abandoned all these years
20:37* vagrantc wonders how to make the centos installer use a 640x480 resolution ...
20:38
<jammcq>
vagrantc: please, let's see if we can keep making sure NFS doesn't get eliminated
20:39
I'll gladly help in that battle

21:00* vagrantc is not having much luck with centos
21:01
<vagrantc>
failed at partitioning 3 of 4 times... the one time it successfully partitioned, it didn't boot...
21:01
<jammcq>
hmm
21:01
where's Enslaver ?
21:02
<||cw>
bad disk?
21:02
<vagrantc>
figured i'd at least be able to get a base install working
21:02
it's a virtual machine ... the host OS hasn't detected any errors
21:05
well, the host OS is detecting some sort of error: [3430551.476621] Buffer I/O error on device dm-9, logical block 10239999
21:06
hmm... my virtual machine looks weird.
21:09
it seems to have make lvm snapshots for some reason ...

So, in ltsp-update-sshkeys, it seems to add the userid on the end of the key: i.e. servername keytype <keydata> root@server
22:34
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: it's essentially a comment field
22:34
sbalneav: you could put whatever you want in there...
22:34
sbalneav: all that matters is fields 1 2 and 3.
22:34
<sbalneav>
Hmm, well, it seems to break libssh. it doesn't want anything there.
22:34
I'm trying to see if there's a way I can code around it.
22:34
<vagrantc>
sounds like a pretty ugly bug in libssh...
22:35
<sbalneav>
You think? :)
22:35
<vagrantc>
it's really common practice for various things to include the userid or other random data there
22:36
<sbalneav>

sbalneav: and http://bugs.debian.org/src:libssh in general
22:41
<sbalneav>
Faaaaaaaaaaa.
22:41
Cripes. Enslaver was saying that libssh2 is the better way to go, but I *really* don't want to have to re-write the entire damned pam module at this point :(
22:42
criminy.

libssh shouldnt crap itself over a comment in a file and if it did one would think it would be fairly trvial to make it refrain from that behavior
