15:05
Console: swithcing to colour frame buffer device 80x30 Error: failed to connect to NBD server.
15:06
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:113.3-1ubuntu11)

15:44
<alkisg>
Some developers offer help for donations etc, but I don't know if ltsp accepts donations as a project... maybe for the ltsp hackfest they organize in the US...
15:45
<TFDL>
can i make a donation to you or your group how?
15:46
alkisg, thanks so much for the help.

We want to have a FOG server and a LTSP server on the same LAN. How do I set up mac address filtering on the LTSP server, so that the fat-clients in our lab are the only clients that can boot to LTSP?

18:38
<gp>
is mdns4 important for LTSP? It appears to be messing up local domain queries
18:40
<slackish>
whatch: instead of mac address filtering on the ltsp server, why not have the windows dhcp service only hand out the next-server and filename options to your fat clients?
18:40
<whatch>
ok, not sure how to do that though.
18:41
<slackish>
unfortunately, neither do i. I suspect google might
18:43
<gp>
Any idea? When I remove mdns4 from my hosts: line in /etc/nsswitch.conf I can ping computers on the *.local domain. Otherwise I can't even though nslookup find them. I don't know if mdns is important to LTSP thought before I uninstall it
