<vagrantc>
i've been looking, but haven't found anything solid.
00:08
every one i've found that's close has it's quirks
00:09
<gdi2k>
yeh, it's difficult to find one with the right features and good linux (not just android) support
00:09* vagrantc nods
00:09
<vagrantc>
i'll be taking a look at the cubieboard shortly
00:09
<gdi2k>
I'd be interested to hear how that goes
00:10
Via's cardboard creation also looked interesting, but I have doubts about the Linux support

no audio jacks though
00:17
(sorry, I lie, they do have audio in / out - it's one of those combo jacks like they use on cell phones)

<kev_j>
I have iceweasel installed, on the main system and the ltsp chroot, and the adobe reader plugin only works if using the main one and doesn't seem to work on the localapps one...
20:40Parker955 is now known as Parker955_Away
20:40
<||cw>
do you also have the plugin installed in the chroot?
20:40
<kev_j>
I think so...
20:41
<vagrantc>
kev_j: localapps only execute other localapps... for the most part.
20:41
<kev_j>
I have the mozilla-acroread plugin installed

Hi all, I am trying to boot fat clients for the first time on Ubuntu 12.04 following highvoltages instructions from http://jonathancarter.org/2010/11/24/how-do-ltsp-fat-clients-work/
20:56
the TC dumps to busy box
20:57
doing dmesg shows me blcok nbd) error attempted to send on closed socket and squashfs errors
20:58
I set it up with the xubuntu-desktop switch
20:59
I
20:59
I
20:59
I seem to have a stutter :)
21:00
I've tried this with two different fat client computers
21:00
any pointers would be appreciated
21:01
<kev_j>
vagrantc: I know, you and I went through hell messing with localapps firefox opening acroread from the downloads window (which actually does work in iceweasel), but I have iceweasel and acroread installed on the chroot and can't seem to get it functional
21:01
<vagrantc>
kev_j: hrm.
21:01
<kev_j>
I found something saying that the plugins are in /usr/lib/mozilla/(extensions or plugins)
21:01
<vagrantc>
john_s: most likely the network settings aren't quite right
21:01
<john_s>
hm, so probably my dhcp optionis?
21:02
<vagrantc>
john_s: yeah ... you'll need root-path appropriately configured
21:02
<kev_j>
but I don't know why mozilla-plugin wouldn't install into it
21:02
<vagrantc>
john_s: your DHCP server and LTSP server are on the same machine?
21:02
<john_s>
vagrantc: no, I use windows dhcp with options leftover from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
21:03
<vagrantc>
kev_j: i'm not understanding that last part ... you're saying you tried to install a package and it failed?
21:03
john_s: oh boy ... well... you'll need to find the root-path and next-server options in windows DHCP ...
21:03
john_s: or try using dnsmasq
21:03
!dnsmasq
21:03
<ltsp>
Error: "dnsmasq" is not a valid command.
21:04
<vagrantc>
john_s: i'm a little weak with ubuntu configuration, but ltsp-config dnsmasq should set up proxydhcp
21:04
er, "ltsp-config dnsmasq"
21:04
that way the windows DHCP server supplies the networking settings, and the LTSP server provides the appropriate network booting DHCP options.
21:05
<john_s>
vagrant: I am using a 1 nic setup, is that still appropriate?
21:06
vagrantc: sorry slipped on the nic there
21:06dsugar100 has left IRC (dsugar100!~dsugar@columbia.tresys.com, Quit: dsugar100)
21:06
<vagrantc>
john_s: yeah, proxydhcp is a good way to go with 1-nic server setups.
21:06
it's a lot easier than configuring a full DHCP server
21:09
<john_s>
vagrantc: I don't see a lts-config dnsmasq command
21:09
vagrantc: sorry I don't see ltsp-config dnsmasq
21:10
<kev_j>
vagrantc: no, it installed correctly, but it isn't doing anything... I think it is working on the main one because it uses nswrapperplugin, but I can't install it into the i386 chroot and from my understanding, which admittedly may be wrong, I shouldn't need the nswrapperplugin because it is for i386 stuff to work on 64 bit systems
21:11
<vagrantc>
john_s: on ubuntu 12.04 ?
21:11Parker955 is now known as Parker955_Away
21:13
<john_s>
vagrantc: correct. I see a link that says " Installing ltsp-server does not install tftpd-hpa" so perhaps that's an issues as well I am looking at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
21:13
<vagrantc>
oh wow... ltsp-config isn't in 12.04 ?
21:14
yeah, i guess it wasn't written until a month after 12.04 released...
21:15
<john_s>
vagrantc: doesn't appear to be :-(
21:15
vagrantc: The link I referenced has a howto about dnsmasq configuration. I could try following that
21:16
vagrantc: I am not dead set on Ubuntu, it's just that I've never set up Debian with LTSP so I am generally unaware of how the two compare, any pointers there?
21:17
vagrantc: e.g. so far debian is what I run on our file servers etc, and ubuntu on our student facing side
21:17
<vagrantc>
john_s: yeah, that link looks mostly right ... although i think the tftpd-hpa thing is silly, because dnsmasq can serve tftp too
21:18
though the instructions for adding ipappend are terrible.
21:19
it'll get overwritten every time networking goes up or down on the server...
21:19
john_s: alkisg has some newer packages for ltsp, too, which have the ltsp-config helper script that makes it a lot easier
21:19
!ppa
21:19
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'ppa', but I do know about these similar topics: 'sbalneav-ppa', 'greek-schools-ppa'
21:19
<vagrantc>
!greek-schools-ppa
21:19
<ltsp>
greek-schools-ppa: https://launchpad.net/~ts.sch.gr/+archive/ppa/ supports LTS Ubuntu releases with newer LTSP versions, bug fixes etc
21:20
<vagrantc>
if you wanted to experiment with that
21:20
john_s: or if you wanted to give Debian a go, it's due to release by May 5th, so shouldn't feel too obsolete.
21:21
<john_s>
vagrantc: I would like to give debian a go. Would you say that the latest LTSP changes tend to get to Debian first? Or is this really an artifact of me following LTS releases?
21:22
<vagrantc>
john_s: well, Debian releases are similar to ubuntu LTS releases
21:22komunista has left IRC (komunista!~slavko@87.244.209.121, Quit: Leaving.)
21:23
<vagrantc>
john_s: so it depends on when you start using it
21:24
<john_s>
vagrantc: ok, so additions to ltsp don't necessarily get backported into squeeze for example
21:24
<vagrantc>
john_s: on a when i get around to it basis :)
21:24
john_s: there are some fairly current ltsp packages in backports.debian.org
21:25
john_s: but given wheezy release in a few days, i'd recommend that.
21:25
<john_s>
vagrantc: Ok, what packages do you recommend I look for in the greek-schools-ppa once I 've added it to my repo?
21:26
<vagrantc>
john_s: well, ltsp-server, ldm-server, and then use it to install the relevent ltsp* and ldm* packages in your chroot...
21:27
john_s: but i've never used it, so i can't say for sure
21:27
although if you're doing fatclients, i guess you wouldn't need ldm-server
21:28
<john_s>
vagrantc: I haven'
21:28
vagrantc: I haven't used fat clients before, so fat it's been TC with local apps, but I've had fat clients recommended to me so I want to try it out
21:28
<vagrantc>
kev_j: could you try it as a fatclient instead of a localapp?
21:29
unfortunately, localapps have a lot of issues ... in general i'd recommend fully thin clients or fully fat clients ...
21:30
on a case-by-case basis, localapps can make sense for some applications, as long as you need just that application, and no other applications running locally
21:31
<kev_j>
it is actually working pretty well, and I think I am close to getting it working the way I want, it is just little quarks that are screwing with me
21:32
like I can work around acroread not opening in the browser, but it would make things significantly easier if I could get it to work
21:33
and I am definitely understanding more with the issue, but things like the nswrapperplugin thing are confusing

so I got it... for some reason when I installed mozilla-acroread it didn't make a symbolic link for nppdf.so

so "ln -s /usr/lib/Adobe/Reader9/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/" fixed that
