lll, you should provide some more information.
08:46
A complete log of the ltsp-build-client output would be a useful place to start, for example.

What can i do more with my current setup(LTSP Server with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit) Fat Clients with ubuntu 12.04. I have only samba and dhcp running on ltsp server.
10:00
<Hyperbyte>
vnc786, what exactly are you asking?
10:03
<vnc786>
I want to have something like Active Directory(which to opt OpenLDAP / FreeIPA)
10:03
<Hyperbyte>
So what's holding you back? :)
10:05
<vnc786>
where to start :( and do i have to install on different Hardware or i Can install on LTSP server is it a good rule of thumb..
10:06
<Hyperbyte>
Depends on what you want. Do you want the LDAP server to be available if the LTSP server goes down, or vice versa?
10:07
My guess is that without LTSP, the LDAP server won't have anyone authenticating, and without LDAP, LTSP will not work... so it shouldn't matter one bit having them on two servers, except more maintenance.
10:07
But where to start - easy... you're running Ubuntu 12.04
10:08
Go to Google, type Ubuntu 12.04 OpenLDAP server
10:08
Lots of howto's. :-)

Hyperbyte: i am on OpenLDAP site and reading Admin guide but it seems it will take more time to install and understand and also i have 3 - 4 XP users right now i dont want to mess with my ltsp server so i will be installing on my local machine and will try will that easy..

<sbalneav>
Morning all.
14:01
So, this week, I plan on digging into why consolekit doesn't think you've got an authenticated session with libpam-sshauth.
14:02
once I solve that, then getting proper localdev support should be much easier.
14:19
<ogra_>
consolekit is dead
14:19* ogra_ hopes you are aware
14:20
<ogra_>
(i dont think there are any distros shipping it anymore)
14:20
(in upcoming reelases that is)

14:23
<sbalneav>
ogra_: I know, but the current releases ARE using it.
14:24
<ogra_>
sbalneav, right, but do you develop for already released distros ?
14:25
<sbalneav>
I'll add systemd support, as well.
14:25
We'll make the relevant bits #define'able, HAVE_CONSOLEKIT and HAVE_SYSTEMD
14:25
<ogra_>
ah, for the stripped logind only thing that debian and ubuntu use too ?
14:25
<sbalneav>
right.
14:25
off to a meeting.
14:25
bbian
14:26
bit
14:26

(not sure how much that differs from plain systemd but i imagine it does)

<michaem>
hello all... hope someone can help me
15:46
I have a HP thin client connected to a LG CS41 TV
15:47
after I get to the purple UBUNTU screen it flashes and I get no signal
15:47
I am connecting HDMI (from TV) to DVI (Thin Client)
15:47
<vagrantc>
is this the boot splash, or after login?
15:48adrianorg_ has left IRC (adrianorg_!~adrianorg@177.156.228.15, Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
15:49
<michaem>
boot splash
15:49
<vagrantc>
!splash
15:49
<ltsp`>
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 .
15:49
<michaem>
on the server?
15:49
<vagrantc>
yes
15:50
<michaem>
and then comment out the splash line?
15:51
<vagrantc>
just remove "quiet splash" from the line(s)
15:52
<michaem>
how do i restart the service rather than rebooting the server
15:52
very new to this
15:52
<vagrantc>
restart what service?
15:52
<michaem>
or can i just boot the thin client back up
15:52
<vagrantc>
yeah
15:52
<michaem>
k
15:53
<vagrantc>
it's read at thin client boot
15:53
<michaem>
the purple screen is still there
15:53
<vagrantc>
hm
15:54
did you save your changes to the file?
15:54
<michaem>
i am wondering if the client is not reading the conf file
15:54
yes
15:54
let me look again
15:54
<vagrantc>
is the client 64-bit?
15:54
<michaem>
dont know... i didnt set it up
15:55
i am trying to help someone who set it up and cant figure out the issue
15:55
label ltsp kernel vmlinuz append ro initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/nbd0 init=/sbin/init-ltsp quiet splash plymouth:force-splash vt.handoff=7 nbdroot=:ltsp_i386
15:55
<vagrantc>
do you have both i386 and amd64 in /opt/ltsp or /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp ?
15:55
<michaem>
let me look
15:55mikkel_ has left IRC (mikkel_!~mikkel@109.202.158.84, Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
15:56
<vagrantc>
try removing "quiet splash plymout:force-splash"
15:56
this is on 12.04 ?
15:56
<michaem>
yes i have both i386 and amd64
15:56
yes... 12.04
15:57
<vagrantc>
maybe the client is booting from amd64...
15:57
<michaem>
ok... how do i change that?
15:57
<vagrantc>
try editing the pxelinux.cfg/default in the amd64 dir
15:58
!splash
15:58
<ltsp`>
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 .
15:58
<vagrantc>
but use amd64 instead of i386
15:59
<michaem>
ok
15:59
made the change in the file and am booting now
16:00
i get the same outcome
16:00
i see some more info on the screen after removing the splash quiet
16:01
but then the purple screen that says ubuntu 12.04 shows up
16:01
then i get a cursor at the end of the 4 dots thats flashes and tv goes to no signal
16:02
can i build a simple i386 client? to see if its the 64bit thats the prob?
16:04yalu has left IRC (yalu!~yalu@91.180.124.9, Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
16:04
<vagrantc>
you could get rid of both and start over...
16:05
but that probabl wouldn't solve your problem
16:05
<michaem>
ok... i just removed th eplymouth:force splash and got some info
16:05
gonna see if i can snap a pic of it
16:05
<vagrantc>
ah, good
16:06yalu has joined IRC (yalu!~yalu@91.180.68.6)

<michaem>
k
16:07
i have a video of whats happening
16:07
can i email it to u?
16:07
or give u a link?
16:08
<vagrantc>
a link would be better
16:08
<michaem>
ok... give me a few mins
16:15
<vagrantc>
wonder ifit is X.org that is failing
16:16
<michaem>
there is something failing
16:16slops17 has joined IRC (slops17!~Slops@unaffiliated/slops17)
16:21
<michaem>
ply-terminal.c:630: ply_terminal_set_mode: Assertion 'terminal != ( .d *)0)' failed'
16:22
then it says Error: unexpectedly disconnected from boot status daemon
16:22
<vagrantc>
no idea if that's normal
16:22
my guess is some issue with plymouth
16:23
<michaem>
yeah
16:23
<vagrantc>
i'm only somewhat familiar with ubuntu
16:23
<michaem>
its (void *)0)
16:24
wonder if i rebuild the client if that would solve the issue with plymouth?
16:24
<vagrantc>
doubt it, unless it was customized
16:25
do you have other machines to test with?
16:25
<michaem>
not with me
16:25
<vagrantc>
boot a laptop or some other computer as a thin client
16:25
dvi to hdmi might cause some unexpected comlications
16:25
<michaem>
not sure how to do that
16:26
ok...
16:26
<vagrantc>
most laptops should be able to select an alternate bot device at startup
16:27
usually by hitting a specific key, like F12 or something
16:27
<michaem>
ok... let me go get my laptop
16:28
<vagrantc>
you might have to enable PXE boot in bios
16:28Phantomas has left IRC (Phantomas!~Phantomas@ubuntu/member/phantomas, Quit: Leaving.)
16:29
<vagrantc>
just would be good to make sure it's not something unusual about your client hardware
16:29
<michaem>
ok cool
16:30
<vagrantc>
brb
16:30
<michaem>
how do i tell the client to boot i386 rather than amd64? maybe that could be the issue
16:30
kk
16:35
my laptop would not boot the image
16:36andygraybeal_ has left IRC (andygraybeal_!~andy@50.41.105.255, Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
16:47
<vagrantc>
michaem: in the same way, or something different?
16:48
michaem: do you know which dhcp server you're using? dnsmasq or isc-dhcp-server?
16:48
<michaem>
it doesnt book... it attempts but then gets to a black screen
16:48
how can i find that out
16:48
<vagrantc>
the dhcp server is what tells it which image to boot
16:49
pgrep -l -f dhcpd
16:49
pgrep -l -f dnsmasq
16:49
that'll tell you which is running
16:50
<michaem>
pgrep -l -f dnsmasq 1226 dnsmasq -u lxc-dnsmasq --strict-order --bind-interfaces --pid-file=/var/run/lxc/dnsmasq.pid --conf-file= --listen-address 10.0.3.1 --dhcp-range 10.0.3.2,10.0.3.254 --dhcp-lease-max=253 --dhcp-no-override --except-interface=lo --interface=lxcbr0 3764 /usr/sbin/dnsmasq --no-resolv --keep-in-foreground --no-hosts --bind-interfaces --pid-file=/var/run/sendsigs.omit.d/network-manager.dnsmasq.pid --listen-address=127
16:51
there is more
16:51
the first command didnt do anything
16:51
looks like dnsmasq
16:54andygraybeal_ has joined IRC (andygraybeal_!~andy@obsidian.casanueva.com)
16:54
<vagrantc>
might just be the default dnsmasq running on ubuntu
16:54
<michaem>
ok
16:55
as i said before, i didnt set up this server
16:55
<vagrantc>
michaem: is there anything in /etc/dnsmasq.conf or /etc/dnsmasq.d/ltsp
16:55
sure
16:55
<michaem>
ok let me check
16:55
<vagrantc>
in fact, first look at the .d stuff
16:56
<michaem>
not sure i understand that
16:56
very basic linux user here lol
16:56
<vagrantc>
was this server upgraded from an older version?
16:56
<michaem>
no... fresh install

nothing in /etc/dnsmasq.conf
16:57
<vagrantc>
michaem: look for files in /etc/dnsmasq.d that mention ltsp
16:58
<michaem>
browsed to /etc/dnsmasq.d/ and the only file in there is lxc
16:59
i can make u connect via teamviewer if u would like?
17:01
@vagrantc wanna go private?
