<Guest97060>

04:13
<work_alkisg>
!lan-benchmark

<ltsp>
lan-benchmark: If you have a mixed-speed network (gigabit server<=>switch connection, and 100 Mbits/sec clients<=>switch connections), then you might suffer from the !flow-control issue. To benchmark your LAN with epoptes, see http://www.epoptes.org/documentation/lan-benchmark
04:13
<work_alkisg>
Guest97060: see this ^

<helper_>
Can the Epoptes program be installed on a vanilla Ubuntu system?
04:29
<Guest97060>
ok thanks
04:35
<work_alkisg>
helper_: yes
04:36
<vagrantc>
work_alkisg: is your nick some sneaky way to minimize tab-completion hits or something? :{
04:36
er, :P
04:36
<work_alkisg>
vagrantc: haha
04:36
It means "it's the pc at work without me there" :)
04:36work_alkisg is now known as alkisg
04:36
<alkisg>
...and that one means "ok I'm there" :D
04:36
<vagrantc>
heh
04:37
so the computer does all the talking while you're away... i get it.
04:37
<alkisg>
But about autocompletion, it was Phantomas complaining that "alkisg_away" was breaking his tab autocompletion of alkisg:
04:38
<helper_>
hey guys! Quick question!
04:38
is the Epoptes software on the default Ubuntu software repos, or would I have to hunt somewhere else for it?
04:39
<alkisg>
helper_: quick answer, (07:35:52 πμ) alkisg: helper_: yes
04:39
http://www.epoptes.org/installation
04:39
<helper_>
Thank you kindly!
04:39
<alkisg>
np
04:39* alkisg should probably remove the "ppa" parts in the installation page nowadays...
04:40
<helper_>
lol
04:40
<vagrantc>
most distros are current enough?
04:41
<helper_>
add a tiny page for "Legacy Installation" for the distros that aren't up to date
04:41
<alkisg>
The ppa is for debian and ubuntu, and epoptes is there since wheezy/12.04, so yup
04:41
<vagrantc>
heh. i pretty much only use bzr now for tagging releases.
04:41helper_ has left IRC (helper_!ae34055e@gateway/web/freenode/ip.174.52.5.94, Quit: Page closed)
04:42
<alkisg>
And move the "ppa" page to another place, just for people that need the latest version
04:42
<vagrantc>
running a mixed server/client environment with different epoptes versions?
04:43
<alkisg>
No, e.g. people needing 0.5.7 in wheezy or 12.04
04:44
<vagrantc>
alkisg: so, sticking with epoptes 0.5.7 for jessie? the freeze is fast approaching...
04:44
<alkisg>
I think phantomas was planning on a new release... so we should definately ask him to ping you for tagging etc
04:44
Bug fixes can still land after the freeze, right?
04:45
<vagrantc>
alkisg: yes, though new upstream versions are pretty strongly discouraged
04:45
<alkisg>
Sure, no, no new versions, just 0.5.8 before freeze and bug fixes afterwards
04:46
<vagrantc>
alkisg: since there's a 10 day delay, and with timezone differences and all, i'd recommend getting it uploaded in the next 4-5 days
04:50
alkisg: doesn't look like anything too major in epoptes trunk, but not sure if there are other branches to pull from.
04:51* alkisg will ping phantomas probably tomorrow...
04:51
<alkisg>
There's a network benchmark menu now
04:52* vagrantc was hoping to tag and upload ltsp today...

Hi, I have LTSP running, I can PXE into it and boot Ubuntu. I also have a Windows7 image, how do I configure so I boot that one from PXE?

I have LTSP running, I can PXE into it and boot Ubuntu. I also have a Windows7 image, how do I configure so I boot into the Windows 7 image via PXE?
20:02
<vagrantc>
you might want to find a more appropriate channel for that
20:02
i mean, you can configure LTSP to connect to a windows server via RDP, but network booting windows is a bit off topic
20:03
<Joe___>
Really? I was able to create the windows image using Virt-manager
20:03
now I want to PXE to it.
20:03
what other channel would you suggest?

Joe___: maybe a channel related to windows?
20:20
or searching windows pxe boot on a search engine?
20:26mealstrom has left IRC (mealstrom!~Thunderbi@46.63.63.163, Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
20:40
<Joe___>
Yeah, never thought of googling it. You think I'd be in IRC if I haven't googled everything I could think of? OK, thanks anyway. I appreciate the input.
20:44
Why does LTSP allow you to create windows images, and allows you to PXE into ubuntu, but not into the images that you create?

oh yeah, i wanted to get network booting on arm working
21:50
so many choices
21:50
stgraber: you don't mind if i gut your arm code do you?
21:53
stgraber: it looks to be hardcoded for a single board.
