BassetFever: ltsp-cluster isn't actively developed anymore, as far as i know
00:04
<BassetFever>
Vagrantc: Thanks for the info
00:06
<vagrantc>
you can do some simple load-balancing using LDM ... especially if it's an environment where users don't need a consistant homedir
00:06
or fatclients, where the load on the server is pretty minimal, then load-balancing becomes less important
00:07
<BassetFever>
Yea, I was looking to repurpouse some 8GB ram twin Xeon servers
00:08
Maybe ill just do the server selection on a per-vlan basis or something I dont know

install LTSP completed
00:21
Error: Socket failed: Connection timed out Exiting.
00:23
<vagrantc>
kiet: what gives that error?
00:26
<BassetFever>
Is the network up? Many distros dont enable eth0 by default.
00:26
<kiet>
error: Socket failed: Connection timed out > Exiting. > mount: mounting /dev/nbd0 on /root failed: Invlai argument > /scripts/init-bottom/ltsp: line 27: panic: not found > chroot can't execute 'usr/bin/test': No such file or directory > mount: mounting /root on rofs failed: Invalid argument > mount: mounting /root/rofs failed: Invalid argument > mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory > mount: mounting /sys on /ro
00:27
<BassetFever>
Perhaps it must be ran with sudo?
00:27
Whats line 27 in "/scripts/init-bottom/ltsp"?

<kiet>
first start a successful login, I tried to log a second time as unsuccessful
00:30
<BassetFever>
So the thin client booted a 2nd time and you got that error message then?
00:30
<vagrantc>
kiet: is it attempting to connect to the correct server?
00:30
kiet: what distro and version are you running? what's the output of ltsp-info (please use pastebin)?
00:30
!pastebin | echo kiet
00:30
<ltsp>
kiet pastebin: the LTSP pastebin is at http://ltsp.pastebin.com. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebin, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. Don't forget to paste the URL of the text here.
00:30
<vagrantc>
kiet: do you have multiple DHCP servers on the network?
00:31
<kiet>
yes
00:31
<vagrantc>
kiet: yes to what?
00:32
<kiet>
So the thin client booted a 2nd time and you got that error message
00:33
<vagrantc>
kiet: my hunch is you have multiple DHCP servers on your network and sometimes your clients get the wrong network information.
00:33
kiet: but it is very difficult to help you without answering all of the asked questions.
00:34
kiet: please run ltsp-info and paste the output to ltsp.pastebin.com and tell us the URL it gives you.
00:35
<BassetFever>
You're good at this vagrantc

<vagrantc>
BassetFever: well, i've been working on LTSP for over a decade now, and developing similar systems for 5 years before that ...
01:10
so hopefully i haven't been wasting my time all these years :)
01:12
<BassetFever>
haha

<gehidore>
alkisg: other than the fact that it's fan cooled http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138426 what's your opinion on this one? https://gehidore.net/ss/1460180290OTIwN.png I've never owned a Biostar
06:28
<alkisg>
gehidore: I'm no expert, you should probably be asking in other forums or irc channels etc
06:28
It looks about the same as the other one...
06:38
<gehidore>
the cpu mark score is 500 points higher and in USD is the same as the one out of stock, thanks for your input - I'll see if I can find some brand "experts"
07:01kjackal has joined IRC (kjackal!~kjackal@2a02:587:3115:700:8055:b3d4:ab0:e34c)
07:25
<alkisg>
Ah, in the second link you have the exact other cpu, that's what confused me...
07:27
<gehidore>
oh it's a comparison of both
07:30
<alkisg>
It doesn't seem available at all in Greece, it's probably too new...
07:32
<gehidore>
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A6-5200+APU it claims it hit the market with the 5000
07:33
<alkisg>
If it doesn't have any issues, it'd make a fine fat client, even an ltsp server for fat clients
07:37
<gehidore>
I might order one payday
07:39
other than open box... this one seems to be the same as the asrock I already bought for POC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138412R again just biostar
07:43
<alkisg>
Yeah...
07:45
BassetFever: what kind of cluster? how many clients, thins or fats, how many servers?

Hi!
11:59
What steps did you take to install LTSP?
12:33
<sebd>
kiet: you should read the error messages that appear above the "BusyBox" line.

<alkisg>
vagrantc: LTSP_HANDLE_DAEMONS=false doesn't appear to work for me in Ubuntu 14.04, do you think anything in start-stop-daemon changed "recently"?
23:31
<vagrantc>
ouch.
23:32
i don't know of any changes off the top of my head
23:33* alkisg sees /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d.ltsp in older chroots, but not in recent ones...
23:35
<alkisg>
Ouch, that's only installed by ltsp-build-client
23:35
It's not there in ltsp-pnp... lame :D
23:36
vagrantc: why aren't we just shipping that in ltsp-client-core?
23:38
<vagrantc>
alkisg: because nobody has ever proposed it till now
23:38
<alkisg>
Haha
23:38
<vagrantc>
additionally, you would actually have to write a more complicated one
23:39
<alkisg>
We can automatically detect if we're in a chroot or not
23:39
We don't even need LTSP_HANDLE_DAEMONS...
23:40
<vagrantc>
but how do you tell all the other packages in the archive that you're in a chroot and please don't start any daemons?
23:41
<alkisg>
I don't get it. If our policy-rc.d detects that we're in a chroot and returns 101, isn't that enough?
