<Enslaver>
low all, anyone seen vagrant?
00:17
!seen vagrantc
00:17
<ltsp`>
vagrantc was last seen in #ltsp 5 hours, 50 minutes, and 40 seconds ago: <vagrantc> bennabiy: --arch just basically sts the chroot name
00:18
<swan>
hello to all
00:19
just i have configured my ubuntu 12.04 with LTSP and the port is Wlan0
00:20
<Enslaver>
You are serving ltsp-clients via wifi?
00:20
<swan>
but when my client i.e. virtual box booting it got ip address but saying no file name
00:21
i tried to boot with ipxe.iso also
00:22
<Enslaver>
whats the filename set to in your dhcpd.conf
00:23
<swan>
pxelinux.0 and root path is /opt/ltsp/i386
00:24
<Enslaver>
the filename needs to contain a path relevant to your tftpboot directory
00:24
i.e. /ltsp/x86_64/pxelinux.0
00:25
<swan>
actually in the /opt/ltsp/i386 there is no such file instead it got all the root directories like boot opt etc usr var dev
00:26
why x86_64 mine is not 64 bit os
00:26
<Enslaver>
then put i386 there, mine is 64 bit
00:26
<swan>
ok
00:27
but in /opt/ltsp/i386/ as i said i dont find any pxelinux.0 instead i got all the linux structure directories like boot var dev etc opt .... blah blah
00:28
<Enslaver>
pxelinux.0 is in /var/lib/tftpboot not your chroot
00:28
<swan>
ok
00:28
<Enslaver>
or whatever tftpboot directory is specified by default in ubuntu
00:28
some are /tftpboot
00:30
<swan>
i got this file here /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/....
00:31
<Enslaver>
yeah so your filename line in dhcpd should read: filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
00:31
<swan>
i dont know why it is saying No filename
00:32
how do i troubleshoot one by one step
00:32
i think my dhcp is working fine because it is giving ipaddress
00:32
<Enslaver>
this should help you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/TroubleShooting
00:33
for more resources, check the ltsp wiki
00:34
<swan>
ok
00:34
<Enslaver>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Troubleshooting
00:36
<swan>
i have checked the same but this not helped me
00:36
i have checked the tftpd
00:36
it is running fine
00:36
if this gives the pxelinux.0 to client my problem solved
00:38
<Enslaver>
did you change the line in your dhcp?
00:40
<swan>
what line i have configured my dhcpd.conf according to my ipaddress
00:41
how do i freshly reinstall ltsp5

anyone have any experience getting plymouth to work with the proprietary nvidia driver?
18:16
even the 'no framebuffer, text progress bar'
18:17
after I install it ldm doesn't seem to want to start
18:27alkisg has joined IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg)
18:32
<other_other_joe>
ldm starts as usual after I pull plymouth out
18:33
if anyone has any suggestions I'd welcome the input. It'd be nice to have a nicer looking boot process

Hey, how can i set a default wallpaper for my fat client
19:53
<alkisg>
A default wallpaper for all users? It depends on the desktop environment...
19:56
<other_other_joe>
generally /etc/alternatives/desktop-background is a symlink to you default new user background
19:57
<matthias_android>
Im using ubuntu 12.04. Still unity is default but i want to set gnome fallback and set for both the wallpaper
19:58
<alkisg>
!gnome-fallback
19:58
<ltsp`>
gnome-fallback: Unity, compiz etc are sometimes slow or buggy. To select gnome-fallback as your default session, install the gnome-session-fallback package, and put this in your lts.conf: LDM_SESSION="gnome-session --session=gnome-fallback"
19:58
<alkisg>
...and you'd have to look at default or mandatory gsettings for the wallpaper
20:00
<matthias_android>
Ok thanks i will test it tomorrow.
20:00
One question keft
20:01
What would be the best way to setup a transfer/share folder for all users? And maybe with a limited size.
20:03
<alkisg>
LOCALAPPS_EXTRA_MOUNTS, and if you're also looking for static permissions, bindfs
20:03
!lts.conf
20:03
<ltsp`>
lts.conf: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/lts.conf
20:05
<matthias_android>
Ok thank you very much, good night!
