<blondie>
Is there something I need to know about fat clients + a server that has LVM?
08:59
<alkisg>
Are you using ltsp-pnp or a classic chroot?
08:59
Hmmm sorry it doesn't matter, in any case the answer would be "no, there's nothing special about lvm + ltsp"
08:59
<blondie>
oh yes its pnp
09:00
<alkisg>
Have you seen any issues related to lvm?
09:00
<blondie>
ok :D
09:01
yes the client won't boot with the default configuration
09:01
wait
09:01
or yes it boots but then
09:02
mounting root file system
09:03
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: Connect failed: No such file or directory
09:05
I'm googlin on this right now
09:08
<alkisg>
blondie: can you upload a screenshot of the client showing that error? E.g. taken from your mobile phone?

alkisg here you go: https://lut.im/uym7vlnqUT/rSLAWybDvNLYZ1N6.jpg
09:40
<alkisg>
blondie: which ubuntu version is that?
09:40
<blondie>
XX
09:40
<alkisg>
??
09:41
<blondie>
xenial xerus :D
09:41
<alkisg>
Aaaah :)
09:42
So it seems that lvm is trying to do something in the initramfs even though it's not instructed to
09:42
I'd need to see it with vnc to know what that is
09:42
!vnc-edide
09:42
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'vnc-edide', but I do know about these similar topics: 'vnc-dide'
09:42
<alkisg>
!vnc-dide
09:42
<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.
09:55
<blondie>
mkay
09:55
<alkisg>
blondie: from the first glance I don't know which of those initramfs scripts is to blame
09:56
And I'm thinking to remove them temporarily, and then you'd try to boot a client and see if it succeeds
09:56
OK?
09:56
<blondie>
ok
09:59
<alkisg>
blondie: ok, boot a client
09:59
And see if it now passes the lvm bits
10:02
blondie: so yup the lvm initramfs scripts are a bit broken and they don't work when you're not using lvm
10:02
<blondie>
i see
10:03
<alkisg>
You could file a bug in lvm to fix it, or in ltsp to workaround the lvm bug
10:03
(or both)
10:03
<blondie>
ok
10:04
Im not sure if I can properly describe the problem
10:04
but lets see
10:04
<alkisg>
Tell them that you have the lvm package installed, but you're not using lvm, and it breaks booting
10:05
You could probably reproduce it by installing the lvm package to a xenial pc that is not using lvm
10:05
(without involving ltsp at all in the description, in this case)
10:05
<blondie>
ok
10:06
<alkisg>
OK I'm closing vnc...
10:07
<blondie>
the client boots up pretty slow, that normal
10:07
<alkisg>
It should boot to LDM in less than 1 minute
10:07
And login should be less than 10 seconds

<blondie>
If I installed chroot instead of pnp I could use_lvmetad = 0 in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf ?
11:28
but there is no lvm in the first place right...
