hi staffencasa..... my clienst have a flashing black screen when trying to first login to a thin client and also my thin clients freeze on shutdown
15:27
the flash black screen only happens on the first login for about 3 seconds then asks for username again
15:28
<staffencasa>
I'm not sure I'm the person you mean to ask
15:28
<ramshank>
I would appreciate for anyone to help!
15:28
thanks though staffencasa
15:29
<staffencasa>
I'm a beginner, you'd probably not get anything substantial from me, sorry
15:29
sbalneav, ^ ?
15:31

ok I'm a beginner too

ramshank: Do you get logged in eventually?
16:05
<ramshank>
yes
16:05
the screen only does it on initial first login after tyhat it doenst do it aymore....
16:05
I have jutc changed SCREEN_07 = gdm in my lts.conf hoping that would fix it but I get authentication failure on that so going to switch back to ldm

16:20gbaman has left IRC (gbaman!~gbaman@81.134.121.245, Remote host closed the connection)
16:21
<ramshank>
any ideas sbalneav ?
16:30
<sbalneav>
Anything in syslog on the server?
16:33
<ramshank>
nope im not using syslog
16:33
ive flicked back over to ldm, still get the black flash on login screen and enter username twice, tried to use GDM but got authentication failure!
16:35
<sbalneav>
gdm won't work unless you do stuff on the server.
16:35
Since you're just getting a flash, seems to me it's an X11 issue.
16:35
What video card is in the clients?
16:36
<ramshank>
onboard Intel HD 1696 MB
16:36
ok is there a simple way to getting gdm to work cause that would be preferable anyway if Im honest ?
16:37
<sbalneav>
Yes, you'll have to enable XDMCP on your server.
16:38
<ramshank>
ok thats done i believe anyway to double check - I'm running CnetOS 6.5
16:38
CentOS 6.5 rather :) yum install xdmcp shows already installed
16:39
<sbalneav>
Just because it's installed doesn't mean it's enabled necessarily.
16:39
<ramshank>
ok so how to enable it ?
16:40
<sbalneav>
No idea on centos.
16:40
Centos channel should be able to help you with that.
16:40
<ramshank>
ok so lets go back to X11 any ideas why I'd get the black flash.. only does it once like I say and once you've logged in and go back to log in screen it doesnt do it
16:41
<sbalneav>
No idea. Can't be anything to do with ssh keys since you're getting logged in eventually.
16:41
Have you tried a different client?
16:41
One with a different video card?
16:42
<ramshank>
yes ive tried different machines they do the same as does a VM
16:42
<sbalneav>
Hm.
16:43
Well, not sure what to tell you, I've never seen that behaviour.
16:43
The black flash usually happens when a login fails.
16:44
Tell me, do you have reverse mappings for the terminals either in DNS, or in the server's /etc/hosts file?
16:44
<ramshank>
ok ... what about shutting down too, if I click shutdown on the log on screen the machines shut down and then they get stuck at shutting down network connections ... ?
16:44
thanks for your help by the way

I don't use the button on the screen myself personally; I just configure the bios' on my machines to power off via the power button.
16:45
<ramshank>
ok thanks for your help.. appreciated!
16:45
<sbalneav>
NP
16:46
Most users tend to prefer to just hit the power button anyway; easier.

my clients were stuck in busybox as in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ltsp/+bug/951526
20:01
i followed http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2173749 to setup the server
20:02
i finally managed to get the clients running by adding server ip in the nbdroot option in pxelinux.cfg
20:02
any hints?

Does anyone know if there is a way to install an LTSP image to a client hard drive?
20:10
<alkisg>
!local-boot | echo derekn:
20:10
<ltsp>
derekn: local-boot: If you want LTSP fat clients on a low-speed network, you can put i386.img on e.g. C:\Boot\LTSP\i386.img and use this command line in pxelinux.cfg: APPEND ro initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img init=/sbin/init-ltsp root=/dev/sda1 rootflags=ro loop=/Boot/LTSP/i386.img; IPAPPEND 3
20:11
<alkisg>
effenberg: the person that writes that forum post doesn't know ltsp well
20:11
effenberg: about your issue, I wouldn't know if I didn't see your setup

<alkisg>
If you're using proxydhcp, then follow the proxydhcp instructions:
20:11
!proxydhcp
20:11
<ltsp>
proxydhcp: A proxy DHCP server is defined by the PXE specification as a server which sends auxiliary boot information to clients, like the boot filename, tftp server or rootpath, but leaves the task of IP leasing to the normal DHCP server. More info: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP

<derekn>
Actually I have clients at two small sites on different subnets with no local ltsp server that connect across vpn. I was hoping to install the image to the HD and configue the options locally so they're not trying to boot across the VPN
20:16
<effenberg>
"nbdroot=:ltsp_i386" will put the clients in busybox
20:38
<alkisg>
derekn: just put those options in grub
20:54
effenberg: read the link I pasted, you're missing ipappend 3
