vagrantc: Hey! I'm working on python bindings for libvncserver/client, is there any chance it could make it to debian repos when it's done?
00:55
not asking for promises of course, just your thoughts :)
00:57
<vagrantc>
Phantomas: as long as the licensing is appropriate and it works, probably not a problem
01:00
<Phantomas>
the original libvncserver license is gpl2, the bindings will probably be glp2 too. I plan on using the bindings in epoptes, so yeah, it's essential they work! :P

Phantomas: i'd be happy to review package uploads and provide advice ... let me know when it's further along

<lbssousa>
work_alkisg, Phantomas, about my proposed workaround for x11vnc "-grab{kbd,ptr}" issues, I've tested setting "Device Enabled" to 0, as you suggested. It works fine for my USB keyboard, but not for USB mouse. For some reason, my USB mouse is automatically re-enabled a few seconds after I tried to use it. I'll have to revert to my previous implementation for mouse (setting "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" to a huge factor).

Thanks - I thought the same initially, however, the user is able to print to the new queue. If the queue info was specific to the prior server, it wouldn't make any sense that it would be visible after the cutover.

well it is detected as ubuntu by default. I'll try with VENDOR=Debian
16:24
it Works better with vendo + distrib + mirror options
16:49
<work_alkisg>
yopla: the mint packaging is heavily broken... it doesn't know if it wants to be a distro or a flavor, so many of its release configuration files don't make sense
16:50
...and get overwriten when a new version of base-files gets installed...
16:55
<||cw>
I'm still not sure what the point of mint is, cinnamon and mate have ubuntu packages and i really don't see any other difference beside how they mess up version dependencies
16:56

hi guys, is anyone using ubuntu 14.04 for thin clients?
17:11andygraybeal has joined IRC (andygraybeal!~andy@h67.60.188.173.dynamic.ip.windstream.net)
17:15
<Tex>
yes gax
17:15
just rolled out a migration from 10.04 to 14.04
17:17
<gax>
how many users do you have in each server?
17:17
<Tex>
1 server, just 30 users
17:18
<gax>
what's the specs of your server?
17:19
i'm having trouble with high load
17:21
<Tex>
SuperMicro 2U 3.xGHz(2) 16 core 22GB RAM with SSD OS and RAID5 10K platters for home dirs. We had to switch sessions from the GNOME 3 to GNOME Flashback (Metacity) in order for things to work for clients.
17:23
<gax>
yeah, I have GNOME Flashback too
17:23
<Tex>
server wasn't the issue in this case - the GNOME 3 was too much for tc hardware to handle alkisg noted 3D acceleration required - and no place for it in LTSP.
17:24
our prior server just couldn't handle FF sessions when upgrading to 40.x version of FF. Used ltsp-localapps before the new unit could be deployed, but even then the TCs ran out of memory/CPU cycles.
17:27
I use htop to i.d. high CPU consumers - there might be other tools, but this one works for me.
17:28
<gax>
it's always chrome/firefox in the top list
17:30
I have 3 virtual servers with 20GB RAM, 8 core 2.5GHz, around 20 users per server

Isn't it cheaper to buy moderate fat clients instead of a monster server and thin clients?
17:42
Fat clients surely behave better wrt load, compositing DEs etc...

18:00
<Tex>
the supermicro only cost $450 on the secondary market
18:04
I've never run an LTSP setup on VMs though - not sure the benefit short of load balancing.
18:16
<gax>
Tex, what's the load average in the server?
18:26
<Tex>
CPU?
18:27
<gax>
yes
18:27
<alkisg>
Btw, "3D... and no place for it in LTSP" ==> 3D runs fine in diskless ltsp fat clients, it's 3D over the network (thins) that have the problem
18:29
and secondary market fat clients only cost e.g. $20 more than thins... :P
18:29* gehidore wishes thins and thicks could be mixed
18:29
<alkisg>
OK, enough fat client advertising :)
18:29
gehidore: most of the schools here mix them
18:29
LTSP takes care of that automatically
18:30
You can adjust it with FAT_RAM_THRESHOLD
18:30
It defaults to 400 MB RAM if I remember well
18:31
<gehidore>
I must be losing my mind then
18:31
I'll have to revisit this later when I don't feel like my head could fall off at any second
18:31
<Tex>
Low usage currently - under 1%. I'd be surprised if it spiked over 15% when everyone is on it but can check in about 30 min when it gets hit again.
18:33
alkisg - what settings are needed on the fatty side to offload GP to the thin clients?
18:34
<alkisg>
!ltsp-pnp
18:34
<ltsp`>
ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is an alternative (upstream) method to maintain LTSP installations for thin and fat clients that doesn't involve chroots: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
18:34
<alkisg>
Tex: you just follow that wiki page, and it's done automatically then... it normally takes less than 1h to set up an ltsp-pnp lab
18:35
The client RAM is tested, and if it's large enough, the client automatically becomes a fat client
18:35
If not, it automatically becomes thin
18:42
<Tex>
ppa? is this going to make its way into the main repo?
18:43
<alkisg>
ltsp-pnp has been in ubuntu since 12.10
18:43
But ubuntu's LTSP is usually very buggy and rarely up to date
18:44
So I'm maintaining that PPA to patch things, as we're using Ubuntu...
18:44
For example, LTSP in 15.10 doesn't work at all without the PPA
18:44
<Tex>
that's not great news. Which distro is best maintained?
18:44
<alkisg>
Ubuntu :D
18:44
<Tex>
|o|
18:44
<alkisg>
But I maintain it in the PPA because I don't have access to push it to the main repo
18:45
<Tex>
understand
18:46
<alkisg>
Debian also has a nicely maintained LTSP, although they had to switch to NBD because NFS wasn't working with the latest upstream overlayfs
18:46
That's a good thing, now debian and ubuntu are more closely together and it's easier for us to maintain it
18:47
<Tex>
but of course!
18:55
I'm willing to check it out. Was under some tight time frames to getting this new system out as the old server performance was so poor.

Nice, any Greeks in your family tree?
19:28

nope - just German, but my brother is dating a Greek girl from his H.S. days and they may get married. That's about as close as it gets for us.

<Tex>
Pretty amazed at the sheer numbers of LTSP installations in Greece. I suspect there are many more here in Texas that just haven't made it to the map.
19:31
<alkisg>
I think about half of the greek installations made it to the map, maybe even less
19:32
<Tex>
wow -
19:32
<alkisg>
The amazing part about the greek ltsp installations is that they're done on a voluntary basis
19:33
Teachers praise it to other teachers and they decide to try it, and then they stick to it
19:33
Then they move to other schools and install it there, and spread it to other teachers...
19:34
It helped a lot that I had a forum with millions of page hits before pushing ltsp to them.. :)
19:34
(forum for IT teachers)
19:34
<Tex>
can't argue with the price. The teachers here complain about it - but they have the means to buy Microsoft based products themselves and are very reticent to anything different.
19:36
but the past year for them has been horrible - filled with frequent crashes while we attempted to keep an outdated server running. I can understand their position - it should change with this new server install.

i added i now need the command to start epoptes
20:06
<alkisg>
It's called "epoptes"... don't you have a menu?
20:06
<Phantomas>
logout and back in first, and then just open epoptes from the applications menu
20:06
<epoptes_user9>
ok
20:07
<Phantomas>
All these are described here btw: http://www.epoptes.org/installation
20:10
<epoptes_user9>
not sure why it still does not work, if i can restart the server then i know i can start epoptes again but i can not restart the server at this time. It is a production server.
20:11
<alkisg>
epoptes_user9: newgrp epoptes; epoptes
20:11
<epoptes_user9>
i loggedout and loggedin
20:11
<alkisg>
epoptes_user9: run this:
20:11
!vnc-dide
20:11
<ltsp`>
vnc-dide: To share your screen with me, run this: sudo apt-get --yes install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr - this is a reverse connection, it doesn't need port forwarding etc.
20:11
<alkisg>
You already have x11vnc
20:11
(it's install with epoptes)
20:13
<epoptes_user9>
not sure what you mean
20:13
<alkisg>
This will allow me to see your screen so that I see what is wrong in a few seconds instead of minutes in the chat
20:14
E.g. see what the output of `ps aux|grep twistd` is, to see why epoptes is not running etc
20:14
So, you can do that by running from your server: x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr
20:14
It's like teamviewer
20:14
<epoptes_user9>
ok
20:14
wait
20:14
i am doing it
20:16
now i logged back in
20:16
what command you want me to share scrren with you
20:16
alkisg
20:16
<alkisg>
x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr
20:17
<epoptes_user9>
i did
20:17
<alkisg>
I didn't get a connection
20:17
Did you see an error message?
20:18
<epoptes_user9>
let me try again
20:21
<alkisg>
epoptes_user9: can you type this symbol? |
20:22
<epoptes_user9>
ok
20:24
yes
20:24
<alkisg>
epoptes_user9: for some reason your epoptes.socket was in use
20:25
epoptes_user9: you can press ctrl+c to close the vnc window now
20:25
<epoptes_user9>
i killed -9 epoptes process id
20:25
<alkisg>
Ah, that's why
20:25
<epoptes_user9>
can you tell why i can not see my 60 ltsp clients?
20:25
since you are just right at it
20:25
<alkisg>
They need to re-connect
20:25
<epoptes_user9>
how
20:26gax has left IRC (gax!b12cf0f4@gateway/web/freenode/ip.177.44.240.244, Quit: Page closed)
20:26
<alkisg>
By manually running /usr/sbin/epoptes-client...
20:26
<epoptes_user9>
can you reconnect for me, agian i can not restart server
20:26
<alkisg>
You can't access the clients now
20:26
They need to do that in their PCs manually
20:26
<epoptes_user9>
ok i see
20:26
<alkisg>
Or, you will see them when they logoff/logon
20:27
<epoptes_user9>
ok i understand, our ltsp clients are instead pannels in front of meeting rooms
20:28
the computers are under the floor they are hard to get access to
20:28
so ok, no other way to access them remotely
20:28
<alkisg>
Well...
20:28
are they thin clients?
20:28
<epoptes_user9>
i will have to get to 60 of them the hard way
20:28
yes
20:28
thin clients
20:28
<alkisg>
!x11
20:28
<ltsp`>
I do not know about 'x11', but I do know about these similar topics: 'x11vnc'
20:28
<alkisg>
!client
20:28
<ltsp`>
I do not know about 'client', but I do know about these similar topics: 'fatclients', 'fatclient-printers', 'epoptes-fat-clients', 'nbd-client', 'client-list'
20:28
<epoptes_user9>
under floating floor tiles
20:29
<alkisg>
There's a way to access the displays of the thin clients if you are root
20:29
<epoptes_user9>
to reboot we have to craw under the floating floor and reach to the power button
20:29
yes
20:30
i do have root access
20:30
<alkisg>
I had noted the command somewhere but it will take me some time to locate it...
20:30
...and it's quite late here... maybe tomorrow?
20:30
:)
20:30
<epoptes_user9>
can you give it to email or dule@ucalgary.ca
20:30
<alkisg>
Or, search the irclogs.ltsp.org, I think I posted it here a few times
20:30
<epoptes_user9>
ok
20:30
i will thanks
20:30
<alkisg>
bb
20:30alkisg is now known as work_alkisg
20:48
<epoptes_user9>
thanks alkisg - i remote login via ssh to clients/ips using root account of the clients and reboot the clients remotely when they come back they connect to epoptes server again. i know understand. good day!
