<tootai>
hello.
17:22
question: having a notebook with windows and linux installed on it, what is the best way to connect to an ltsp server?
17:23
Also i installed pinet stuff on a test server. How can I add/remove applications? How to get pinet bash config and messages in another language?
17:24
<vagrantc>
tootai: you want the laptop to behave like an LTSP thin/fat client?
17:24
<tootai>
yes
17:25
<vagrantc>
network boot it?
17:25
you could install all the client packages locally, but that's going to take some work
17:25
<tootai>
what do you mean? I would avoid that user have to enter bios to boot pxe or local hdd
17:27
hmm ... so best would be for teacher to connect using eg VNC
17:27
<vagrantc>
tootai: you want windows or the local linux install to continue to work separately?
17:27
<tootai>
no.
17:27
<||cw>
tootai: you could use vnc, or remote X maybe
17:28
<vagrantc>
you want a graphical login to the LTSP server?
17:28
use VNC or NX or RDP or any number of other protocols that aren't really related to LTSP
17:29
<tootai>
I want that a teacher switch his notebook on, and have the choice to start win or linux (as it is at this time) + the ability to connect to LTSP server. Directly at start or from inside one of the 2 OSÅ›
17:29
* OS's
17:29
<vagrantc>
tootai: you could probably use iPXE in the boot menu
17:29
<tootai>
OK, I will do it like this
17:29thedarkener has left IRC (thedarkener!~thedarken@c128.thedarkener.com)
17:30
<vagrantc>
tootai: which then will PXE boot it like any other network boot client
17:30
!ipxe
17:30
<ltsp`>
ipxe: iPXE is the successor to the etherboot/gPXE project, and can be used to netboot clients that don't have a NIC ROM with a PXE stack. To add it to grub, see !grub-ipxe. To add it to the Windows boot loader, see !win32-loader. To download floppy, CD or USB images, visit http://ipxe.org or install the ipxe package.
17:31
<tootai>
OK, I will see. Is installing LTSP client on a USB stick an option too ?
17:32
<vagrantc>
it is technically possible... if you like to tinker and experiment
17:33
<tootai>
Well iPXE will be a problem. Recent notebooks doesn't have Ethernet, only Wireless
17:33
<vagrantc>
LTSP over wireless isn't really viable
17:34
<tootai>
why ?
17:34
<vagrantc>
too much data, too high latency
17:34
<muppis>
Too slow.
17:34
<vagrantc>
that too
17:34
<tootai>
Thanks for the information
17:36
<vagrantc>
tootai: as to installing software with pinet: http://pinet.org.uk/articles/installation/installing-software.html
17:37
tootai: pinet has pretty good documentation, from what i've glanced
17:44
<tootai>
vagrantc, yes, indeed, I saw the option and was thinking it was for specific apps from pinet. Sorry for that
