<ltsp`>
ubuntu-mate: Ubuntu-mate works very well with LTSP, even with older clients. Download the 64-bit version if *all* your clients have >= 2GB RAM, otherwise download the 32-bit version. http://ubuntu-mate.org/download/

Hi everyone!
09:14
one question, in a 3 NICs setup, in order to benefit from bondig (duplex speed), do I need the switch to have 802.3ad support?

!learn bonding as https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/Trunking
09:23
<ltsp`>
The operation succeeded.
09:23
<alkisg>
laro: not necessarily, there are bonding modes that don't need it

<laro>
thanks alkisg, so if I read it right, any switch and bond mode 0 should work and I get 2x the speed (around 2000mbit/s)

laro: if you have pci-e cards, use 3*nics to get around 3 gbps :)
10:41
Unless you want to enforce that classic "2-nic ltsp setup" for some other reason...
10:42
<laro>
no, I just bought 2 pci-e cards, but I can buy another one
10:42
for some reason one of them is not working, maybe an IRQ problem, I have to try in a different slot
10:43
<alkisg>
laro, do your clients also have gigabit cards?
10:43
<laro>
In a fat client environment, the network is mostly used at boot, right? after that, just internet usage
10:43
<alkisg>
Launching libreoffice results in 120 MB being read from the disk
10:44
<laro>
no, the clients only have 100mbit cards
10:44
<alkisg>
Multiply that with e.g. 10 clients, you get 10 gigabit
10:44
In a gigabit environment, that fully occupies the network for 10 seconds
10:44
<laro>
oh ok, so performance will raise a lot when I set the gigabit switch
10:44
I am in a megabit environment right now xD
10:44
<alkisg>
Only if all 10 of them launch libreoffice simultaneously :)
10:44
Haha, yes, gigabit is required
10:45
<laro>
mostly firefox usage for now
10:45
any recomendations regarding switch brand? I have 12 clients, plus a printer
10:45
I was thinking of buying a 24 port switch so I can add more clients
10:46
<alkisg>
tplink sg1024de
10:46
<laro>
wow I was looking into that one :D
10:46
<alkisg>
Not "d" in the end, which also exists, but "de", which is managed
10:46
<laro>
easy smart right?
10:46
<alkisg>
Right
10:46
<laro>
so I can turn off flow control?
10:46
<alkisg>
It's turned off by default there
10:46
<laro>
oh ok
10:46
<alkisg>
It's the perfect switch, it even reports cable problems :)
10:47
<laro>
that's great
10:47
ordering it right now
10:47
<alkisg>
Completely plug 'n' play
10:47
Nice!
10:47* alkisg waves, later...
10:47
<laro>
another question now that you are here
10:47
what about printing from the clients? is it possible?

Hello everyone
16:56
I would like to know what’s the best approach to edit a config file when an ltsp client boot ?
16:57
I need to comment out one configuration line in the ssh_config file
16:57
is the use of RCFILES the standard approach ?
