hi all
09:14
we're testing some ltsp configs, and a stupid question comes to me : how to know if my client boots in thin or fat mode ??
09:15
<work_alkisg>
After login, open a terminal, and run `hostname`, and check if it's the server's hostname or the client's
09:16
<fgth>
Ah ok. So I suppose that if this is the server name, we are in thin
09:16
<work_alkisg>
Yes
09:18
<fgth>
Thanx ;)

Mmmh strange. I read here and there that by default a thin client image is generated, if there is no "/etc/ltsp/ltsp-build-client.conf" file. But it seems that I have a fat client (local hostname "ltsp125" in a console). The server is an Ubuntu 12.04. What am I doing wrong ?

fgth: just to clearify, after you login succesfully when you open a gnome-terminal the hostname is "ltsp125"?
12:02
<fgth>
yes it is

could you upload the output of cat /var/cache/ltsp/ltsp_config_env to pastbin and post the link
12:07
<fgth>
I have no /var/cache/ltsp directory...
12:15
<der_baer>
that shut be there if are on an fat client (same is true for a TC but since every thing runs on the Server there would be no way to access it)
12:19
do you have /etc/lts.conf ?

No, I have it in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386, in which I have successfully added some autologin options for a client : it seems that it is this one that is used

<der_baer>
fgth: it sound's like you have an thin client, maybe the hostname of your server is ltsp125?
12:41
check your ip with ifconfig

12:47||cw has joined IRC (||cw!~chris@phpgroupware/cw)
12:49
<fgth>
For the name : no, the server is named "srv1", and 125 seems to be the last number of the IP of the client. I say "it seems" because I have another problem here : I can't sudo in a terminal, the password is rejected, although I have the user on the server AND in the chroot with the same password. But this IP ping when the client is on.
12:49
and, of course, 125 isn't the IP of the server !
12:53
<der_baer>
mm ok
12:57
you could set an root password with passwd within the chroot and then just use "su" that should work, also you could start a shell on one of the other VT with SCREEN_02=shell where you the could login with your root account

Always strange... Go to chroot with ltsp-chroot, changed passwd of root, but not able to login on the client. In the chroot, /etc/shadow has been correctly modified, but in /etc on the client it is not, with a date from this morning (when I build img ? Maybe)
14:27
<der_baer>
fgth: maybe you forgot ltsp-update-image ?
14:33
<||cw>
fgth: unless you're using nfs, you need to rebuild the image

Shame on me ;) updated the image, rebooted the client : it works. Thank you for that. I confirm that the IP is .125, when the server one is .1

Tried that : if I create a test file in the client in home dir, it does'nt appear on the server disk. And if I reboot the client, no more test file....

15:05gbaman has left IRC (gbaman!~gbaman@88.250.255.116, Remote host closed the connection)
15:10
<der_baer>
fgth: there shout be an sshfs connection that mounts the server homedir to the client (if you using a fat client for thin clients there is no need for that). again on your client after booting there shout be the file /var/cache/ltsp/ltsp_config_env where you can checkout you current config search for LTSP_FATCLIENT="True"
15:20
<fgth>
I confirm that point too : no directory /var/cache/ltsp/, no file ltsp_config_env on whole disk. Well. I think that we will try to reinstall the server from scratch.
15:24
<der_baer>
fgth: that file is not on the server disk its generatet in the boot process by ltsp-scripts on the client so you find this just on the running client witch is diskless (normaly since no disk is needed)

Aaaah my bad ! ooookkk ! I have it. And yes, LTSP_FATCLIENT is True. But why ?? Mystery.
15:33
<alkisg>
fgth: what do you see if you run this on the client? ls /usr/share/xsessions/
15:35
<fgth>
@alkisg : there is two files : xfce.desktop and xubuntu.desktop
15:36
<alkisg>
fgth: so, you installed xubuntu in the chroot?
15:36
How did you run ltsp-build-client?
15:36
Did you follow some guide?
15:38
Also, what's the output of this, on the server? ls -lh /opt/ltsp/images

15:54
<fgth>
alkisg : yes xubuntu was installed. I just ran "ltsp-build-client --arch=i386". In fact, I've followed so much guides... Not sure in which order. So don't worry for the moment : we reinstall the server to be sure. For now thanx for all !
