<maldridge>
the network is somewhat simpler though because you don't need to be doing nat/proxydhcp on the ltsp server

Hyperbyte: thanks for the explanation. I've installed the normal standalone package. I'm using fat clients and added a config file from the ubuntu help forums about LTSP support. When the fat client boots with PXE, it always times out.
02:34
Also, the only thing we need for oue setup is a web browser and nothing else. Can I strip everything out of the ltsp-build-client so there's nothing left but firefox or another browser?

<maldridge>
linuxfool: you can do that if you modify the lts config file that the clients read, everything is still technically in the image, but the browser is the only thing running in the foreground
04:49
<alkisg>
There's a KIOSK=xxx lts.conf option that enables a kiosk-like experience, browser only without even logging in

08:08* alkisg waves to vagrantc
08:08
<alkisg>
How's the weather down there?
08:11
<quinox>
Mmm, in my freshly baked 16.04 LTSP clients the timezone was set to UCT instead of Europe/Amsterdam as is used on the server
08:11vmlintu has left IRC (vmlintu!~vmlintu@dsl-jnsbrasgw2-58c07e-86.dhcp.inet.fi, Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
08:13
<alkisg>
quinox: were you using ltsp-build-client?
08:18
<vagrantc>
alkisg: pretty chilly
08:18
alkisg: but i kind of like it ... big heat wake likely to hit back home :)
08:18
heat wave
08:18
<alkisg>
Hmm so I shouldn't bring any T-shirts... I saw 16 degrees and I thought it would be warm :D
08:19
<vagrantc>
alkisg: it really varies greatly
08:19
<quinox>
I was, yes
08:19
IIRC it never failed to copy the timezone info before
08:20
<alkisg>
quinox: not many are using ltsp-build-client anymore, in favor of ltsp-pnp, so bug reports would be needed to fix things, and patches would be welcome...
08:20
systemd uses different schemes now
08:20
!ltsp-bug
08:20
<ltsp>
ltsp-bug: To file a bug report for upstream LTSP, go to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp
08:20
<quinox>
the ltsp-pnp is the one where you don't make separate images anymore right?
08:20
<alkisg>
Yes, the server is used as a template
08:20* vagrantc didn't think systemd used it's own timezone implementation...
08:21
<vagrantc>
that's libc stuff... no?
08:21
<alkisg>
Not timezone implementation
08:21
But for example /etc/default/rcS isn't used anymore
08:24
Also datetimectl has a few issues while reading /etc/adjtime
08:24
<quinox>
if -PNP is the way of the future I guess we can switch over - we simply use ltsp-build-client now because that's what we've always used
08:25
<alkisg>
quinox: no, it's just one of the ways
08:25
But both ways would need users and developers to stay maintained
08:25
<quinox>
ok
08:25
right
08:26* alkisg isn't using ltsp-build-client at all anymore
08:34
<quinox>
bug reported
08:36
I might look into it next weekend (no promises though)
08:36
now back to work

sbalneav: haven't checked in lately about the future of ltsp pam stack... probably be a good time since i'm at debconf now :)
14:05
<sbalneav>
oh, cool
14:05
Both you and alkis?
14:06
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: alkis will be getting here later
14:07* vagrantc is still bootstrapping a working environment
14:07
<vagrantc>
sbalneav: just figured i'd see where things were at :)
14:07
<sbalneav>
ok. I'll spend some time this morning. I think a combo of pam-python and nss-extrafiles will be with what we go with.
