Morning.
10:31
Some of our thin HP clients abort with "longhaul: Option 'enable' not set. Aborting."
10:32
I understand that I need to add longhaul.disable=1 to GRUB bootline.
10:33
I thought I could do it through pxelinux.cfg, but that file tells me that it is auto generated, and to use /etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf instead
10:34
Unfortunately that file doesn't exist on my server. Is there a way to create it, or how else would I add the longhaul line?
10:34
<alkisg>
It is in the chroot
10:34
First try adding it to pxelinux.cfg even if it will get overwritten in the future
10:34
If it indeed solves the issue, ask again
10:46
<larryni>
Darn. That didn't work.

<alkisg>
larryni: note that "aborting" might mean "one of the modules refused to load", and be completely unrelated to why the clients don't boot
11:06
Did you check graphics card issues?
11:07
Try with SCREEN_02=shell (no ldm at all) in lts.conf
11:11
<larryni>
alkisg: I can't really do that at the moment as we have people logging in on other clients. Probably will have to try that over the weekend when no-one's around.
11:12
<alkisg>
larryni: you can create a pxelinux.cfg/01-mac-address file and affect only that one client

<larryni>
alkisg: so the filename would be 01-00-00-00-00-00-00 (using the actual MAC address)? Do I need to create a section in that file or just add the one line SCREEN_02=shell?
11:25
<alkisg>
larryni: yes for the filename, no for its usage, sorry, let me clarify,
11:25
pxelinux.cfg/01-mac-address is client-specific options instead of pxelinux.cfg/default
11:25
I.e. for kernel parameters
11:25
lts.conf supports per-client options in [mac-address] sections, that override the [Default] section
11:25
That's for SCREEN_02=shell etc
11:28
<larryni>
So I could just add a [mac-adress] section in lts.conf without upsetting my other users?
11:29
<alkisg>
Yes
11:39alkisg is now known as work_alkisg
11:40
<larryni>
OK, I just added a [mac-address] section to lts.conf with the SCREEN_02=shell line
11:41
I still got the Abort message, but it then dropped my into a shell as root. Was that the intended behaviour?

12:59
<alkisg>
larryni: yes, that was the intended behaviour, and it means that the message you see doesn't cause any issues
12:59
The problem is after that in the boot process. You might try XSERVER=vesa or nomodeset (google for how to apply those), I think it's related to graphics issues.

<fede2>
Hi, I'm trying to get an ltsp-cluster running under ubuntu 14.04. Following this howto I have the root and appsrv up and running.
22:12
When I boot the stations I get dhcp, then tftp and then a blank screen on the stations.
22:12
On the logs I get ltsp-directory[1211]: ,ip=10.42.24.22,mac=6C:0B:84:09:FF:76,display=0.0,code=2, - cannot_set_status: This message is not set in text-en.phpThis is not a valid IP address : appServIp=0.0.0.0
22:13
The load balancer config seems ok, as when I boot the stations or change any config on the web interface (cluster-control) I can see that the root is posting correctly to the appsrv.
22:14
appsrv$ tail -f /var/log/ltsp-cluster-lbagent.log | grep --color=auto -v Reload
22:14
10.42.24.20 - - [29/Oct/2015 16:09:26] "POST /RPC2 HTTP/1.1" 200 -
22:14
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Nevermind... read on irclogs that when other people have asked the same, they have been steared away from ltsp-cluster.
22:47
Trying to loadbalance using DNS with stock ltsp.
23:21
<maldridge>
yeah, ltsp cluster is massive, complicated, and mostly disliked afaik
23:27
<fede2>
Yeap. Got a stock ltsp running in minutes.
23:28
Aldo I think a but in nbd in the allow file is bitting me right now...
