Hello everyone. Is there anyway I can verify the LDM_DIRECTX on a thin client? I've adjusted the lts.conf, and updated the image without any issue as I have before, but the performance seems the same, and I just want to make sure the value was properly updated before investigating anything else.

<[conrad]>
Thank you, those instructions worked. As a quick side note, I placed the LDM_DIRECTX = True directive in the /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf file as well ( in combination with the SCREEN_* items mentioned before, and on reboot, I could tell immediately that the value took effect. Though I verified it with the commands provided. Is it possible that /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf is the only place the values would work? To cla
15:45
rify, on a Ubuntu 12.04 LTS install I had previously modified /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf and updated the image.
15:45
<alkisg>
The file from tftp overwrites the file from the chroot
15:46
The reason for putting the file to tftp is to avoid ltsp-update-image. Otherwise do what you prefer.

15:52
<[conrad]>
Okay, thanks. Just seemed that when I had previously placed the LDM_DIRECTX value in /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf and successfully updated the image, it didn't appear to do anything, but I could quickly see the difference when placing it in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf .

<alkisg>
(06:45:59 μμ) alkisg: The file from tftp overwrites the file from the chroot ==> that means that changes in /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf don't matter if you have /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf
16:11
<[conrad]>
Yes, I understand that. What I am saying is that when the value "LDM_DIRECTX = True" was only in /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf ( I didn't have a /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf yet ) it didn't seem to apply.
16:19mealstrom has joined IRC (mealstrom!~Thunderbi@46.63.63.163)
16:32
<alkisg>
OK, then it might have had a syntax error
16:32
Normally, it should apply without problems

[conrad], would you please put your lts.conf to pastebin?

<[conrad]>
Actually, I think I might already know the problem. http://pastebin.com/jztZ9hS3 is the contents of /opt/ltsp/amd64/etc/lts.conf . The issue is that LDM_DIRECTX is not in [Default], where it is now in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/amd64/lts.conf right?
17:51
<vagrantc>
you need a [default] section, yes.
17:52
but you could create additional sections

18:01
<[conrad]>
Okay, sorry about that. I didn't from the search I had done that the [Default] item was required, and just stuck the value under the others.
18:02
<vagrantc>
i mean, you can put LDM_DIRECTX in other sections, but you need the [default] section to exist.
18:05
<[conrad]>
Okay, thanks. I'll have to read the documentation a bit more I guess. Get a better understanding of the sections.

18:07
<vagrantc>
that's about all there is to it.... [default] needs to exist.
18:08
you can specify mac address, ip address or hostname in other sections.
18:09
i.e. [hostname], [12:34:56:78:90:ab] for mac address, [192.168.67.56] for ip address ... and there's some support for wildcards, although i'm not as clear on that
18:09
i've definitely used [192.168.67.*] ... not sure if they work with other sections

18:27
<[conrad]>
vagrantc: Thanks for that. I suppose maybe that default file was to blame. The file it references for more detail /usr/share/doc/ltsp-client/examples/lts-parameters.txt.gz did not exist on my system, so I poorly just stuck the value under the [example] key=value that were already in the file. But I definitely know now for moving forward. Thanks again.
