what ltsp thin client hardware do people use? there's no hints at ltsp.org, is there?
09:37
<der_baer`>
tarzeau: http://www.zotacusa.com/products/mini-pcs/zbox but it is more fatclient hardware :D
09:43
<Hyperbyte>
tarzeau, you can use any hardware that is supported by Linx
09:43
*Linux
09:43
<workingcats>
we used old PCs
09:44
but even tho they only cost like 20 bucks each we went for fat clients in the end because they had plenty of power for that
09:50vmlintu has joined IRC (vmlintu!~vmlintu@cs181214103.pp.htv.fi)
10:07
<tarzeau>
we prefer gbit thin clients, like the zotac
10:07
workingcats: we have fat workstations that run independent of ltsp
10:09
<workingcats>
tarzeau, well it turns out we actually only have 1 fat client which is my main work machine, to be switched to gentoo when i have time ;)

we run the old itx a and b models as well as the id41 with nvidia ion graphics cards. works all nicely

Intel GMA craphics can sometimes give problems, but those are usually fixable by disabling LVDS
11:26
<tarzeau>
http://communities.intel.com/thread/36342 and that one looks unfixable
11:32
<Hyperbyte>
Hardware limitations are generally not fixable by Linux, no...

Hello
12:25
LTSP client booted into Ubuntu
12:25
I can see a folder I created on the desktop but no dash menus or bars at the top of the screen, desktop background is appearing.

Hi everybody
12:37
Does anyone have experiences with Fujitsu Desktop PCs?
12:38
<der_baer`>
jbassett: sounds like unity does not start. Nautillus does this folder and backround think. Maybe you will find some usefulll errors in /home/user/.xsession-errors
12:39gbaman has joined IRC (gbaman!~gbaman@host81-130-91-171.in-addr.btopenworld.com)
12:39
<svenM>
The LTSP network boot seems not to work with our Fujitsus that use Intel Boot Agent v1.3.72
12:40
The server runs correctly, cause every other Computer we have can boot via network
12:42
<der_baer`>
svenM: if it does not support booting over network (check the bios boot settings)LTSP wont work
12:42
<svenM>
I did an upgrade of the server this morning, before we ran edubuntu 10.something and now 12.04.3 LTS
12:43
In the old version, everything went fine
12:43
<jbassett>
thanks der_baer, will take a look

<der_baer`>
svenM: so the PCs was booting over network before?
12:45
<svenM>
yes
12:45
after the upgrade, not every PC started over the network anymore
12:45
Common feature: Fujitsus with Intel Boot Agent GE v1.3.72
12:48
<der_baer`>
svenM: mm I dont this Intel Boot Agent but if it supports PXE everything shut be fine, what does the bios say if you try to boot the PC?
12:49
<svenM>
Last line before it got stuck is "Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/default OK"
12:49
And then I see this flashing dash...
12:53
BTW: the PCs are no legacy devices, they are pretty new with i7 and so on
12:54
<der_baer`>
mmm ok so pxe is working, maybe you find somethings in the logsfiles of the server (could be an nbd-server fail) but since it is working for the other PCs I'm not so shure about that. did you get the busybox if you hit crtl-c?
12:56
<svenM>
I will check
12:57
Then it aborts and I will get a "boot: " prompt

It offers ltsp as an input for boot
13:06
After some time there is one short flash
13:11
<der_baer`>
svenM:mm the thing that confused me is that your other PCs are booting. Did you maybe have some spezial configuration for this maschiene (check dhcpd.conf and your ltsp configuration /var/lib/tftpd/default/)
13:13
<svenM>
thanks, I will check that

The kernel seems to be fucked up
14:04
(in the way of compatibility)
14:04
An older kernel brought us further, but after the nfs-premount we get "connection refused"
14:14
<alkisg>
svenM: nfs? didn't you say you use ubuntu?
14:14
Ubuntu uses NBD by default...
14:15
Maybe your machine doesn't have the "cmov" instruction, or doesn't support "pae"?
14:15
Which CPU does your client have?
14:18
<svenM>
i7

14:19
<alkisg>
Are you sure this isn't a graphics error?
14:19
What kernel are you using, and what is the last message you see on the client?
14:19
(don't try nfs at all)
14:20
ls -l /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386 => pastebin
14:20
Finally, did you rebuild your chroot? (not upgrade, but rebuild with ltsp-build-client)
14:27staffencasa has joined IRC (staffencasa!~staffenca@8-220.ptpg.oregonstate.edu)
14:30
<svenM>
we tried the kernel 3.2.0.52 and 3.0.?? and 2.6.??
14:30
Always rebuilt as you mentioned
14:31
<alkisg>
I think we're not communicating very well
14:31
How did you try 2.6 in 12.04?
14:32
Maybe you're just copying older kernels from older ubuntu versions, with older and incompatible initramfs's...
14:32
<svenM>
That is true
14:32
<alkisg>
That doesn't have any chance to work at all
14:32
<svenM>
I guess, the new (currently installed) kernel is incompatible with the machine
14:33
One of the last steps in booting before it got stuck was nouveau_init ...
14:33
That seems to have something todo with the nvidia graphics
14:33
<alkisg>
What's the output of this command? grep '' /opt/ltsp/*/etc/issue

Good morning,
15:51
I have got ubuntu-12.04.3-alternate-i386 install, thinserver, and thinclietns working very nicely at our University TFDL library, we are very happy. However, we still need to rotate/set orientation of the thinclients desktop to portrait or vertical.
15:52
I have carefully followed the instruction here to rotate/set orientation but the thinclients do not seem to apply any of the configuration (I see no changes on thinclients) - http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/man5/lts.conf.5.html#contenttoc10
15:52gbaman has joined IRC (gbaman!~gbaman@host81-130-91-171.in-addr.btopenworld.com)

Here is the configuration I tried in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf ############## [default] # I tried both of these but not sure what is the difference. Thanks in adva #XRANDR_ORIENTATION_0=right XRANDR_ROTATE_0=right
15:55
here is the configuration again:
15:55
in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf
15:55
[default]
15:55
# I tried both of these but not sure what is the difference. Thanks in advance

<slackish>
you know, after reading the man page, i still dont know the difference between orientation and rotate
16:11
it appears after running "xrandr --output LVDS-0 --orientation right", there was no effect
16:11
but "xrandr ... --rotate right", there was one

tfdl: open a gnome-terminal and run xrandr manually until you make it work
16:14
Once you make it work, THEN try with lts.conf
16:14
What graphics card do the clients have? Does it support xrandr and orientation?
16:15
<tfdl>
hi
16:15
<alkisg>
Try e.g. xrandr -o left
16:15
<tfdl>
ok
16:15
trying
16:17
i typed: xrandr -o left
16:17
i got error: X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invlid parameter attirbutes)
16:18
<alkisg>
So your driver doesn't support rotation. Which graphics card?
16:18
<tfdl>
Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)
16:18
<alkisg>
If you have a client with an intel-based graphics card, try there instead
16:19
!localxterm
16:19
<ltsp>
localxterm: Any applications that you launch on a thin client actually runs on the server, not on the client itself. If you want to open a program on the client locally, you can type 'ltsp-localapps <program>' in a run dialog or in a terminal. For example, 'ltsp-localapps xterm' to open a terminal running on the client.

To see the client graphics card, run this command in a localxterm: lspci -nn -k | grep -A 2 VGA
16:20
<tfdl>
i can not find graphic card spec yet on this virtual box
16:20
<alkisg>
VirtualBox doesn't support xrandr rotation
16:20
<tfdl>
i understand your isntruction
16:20
<alkisg>
Try with a real client
16:20
<tfdl>
i will try with intel-base graphics card
16:22
ok, i will set up a real environment. thanks so much
16:22
have a great day!

<Zaphoid>
Having an odd issue. I need my ltsp thick clients to have different DNS settings then the ltsp host. I thought changing it in /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/resolv.conf and rebuilding the image would be enough, but it doesn't seem to be taking.
19:56
Using ubuntu 12.04
19:59
<vagrantc>
it probably uses resolvconf?
19:59
Zaphoid: you should be able to configure it with DNS_SERVER* in lts.conf
20:00
<Zaphoid>
Ah, nifty. OK
20:00
<vagrantc>
Zaphoid: it's also documented in the lts.conf manpage
20:01
<Zaphoid>
Related to lts.conf, it seems the tftp lts.conf is ignored and only the local is read. Is this supposed to be?
20:02
<alkisg>
Nope. Pastebin your /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/*/lts.conf to pastebin, and mention if * is amd64 or i386
20:02
<vagrantc>
is it attempting to download lts.conf from the right server? i.e. your LTSP server vs. a router on the network?
20:02
<Zaphoid>
vagrantc: That is possible. I don't know how to tell that.
20:03
<vagrantc>
and what alkisg said
20:03
<Zaphoid>
alkisg: amd64 http://pastebin.com/RxFqGZA1
20:05
<alkisg>
Zaphoid: can you describe your dhcpd setup?
20:05
E.g. 2 nic, isc-dhcp on the ltsp server...
20:05
<Zaphoid>
dhcpd is running on a separate server.
20:05
ltsp server is a virtual guest running tftp/ltsp/etc
20:06
1 nic
20:06
I have to add IPAPPEND 3 to the pxelinux.cfg/default for it to fully boot
20:07
<alkisg>
OK, symlink $TFTP/ltsp/amd64 to $TFTP/ltsp/i386
20:08
er, the other way around
20:08
...because in your case it's searching i386 for lts.conf
20:08
<Zaphoid>
I wondered if that was the case. For some reason just symlinking didn't enter my mind.
20:09
<alkisg>
Note that symlinks must be relative due to tftpd-hpa
20:09
cd /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp; sudo ln -s amd64 i386
20:09
<Zaphoid>
Thanks for the reminder.
20:10
I'll let you know in a second if it worked.
20:11
Assuming several things
20:13
Yes on both accounts. That fixed the lts.conf (wish I had tried that earlier, would have saved me a CRAPTON of rebuilding client time)
20:13
And I know it fixed the lts.conf since the DNS changes I made were in that lts.conf, and they were implemented
20:13
So sweet

win32-loader: win32-loader.exe can be used to add a "PXE - Network boot" option to the Windows boot manager. It's developed for Debian and it uses gPXE/iPXE for the network booting. You can download a binary from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/tools/win32-loader/unstable/ (if someone could write a wiki page for that it'd be great, a Greek page you can translate as a starting point is available at (1 more message)
