<MRH2>
hi i am trying out mint 18 with ltsp pnp and am running in to 2 issues
22:09
I can;t seem to login from a locked screen (there is login prompt but password is not accepted)
22:09
after resuming from suspend there is no login prompt
22:10
has anyone else experienced similar?
22:10
<quinox>
it tries to unlock using auth on the client itself
22:10
we use LDAP, screensavers work properly when the clients also authenticate there
22:11
I've never tried resume
22:11
<MRH2>
i figured the users and hashed passes were part of the img
22:11
and it would read those
22:11
?
22:11
<quinox>
when you login on an LTSP client it actually attempts to login on the server
22:11
<MRH2>
yes
22:12
<quinox>
you might be able to copy the hashed passes but it would get out-of-sync as soon as someone changes their password
22:13
might not be a big problem
22:14
<MRH2>
ok so the hashed passes aren;t part of the generated image?
22:14
<quinox>
nope, not by default AFAIK
22:15
<vagrantc>
there is LDM_HASH_PASSWORD feature which works around the problem
22:15
er, LDM_PASSWORD_HASH
22:16
<MRH2>
could i mount the directory via sshfs?
22:16
<vagrantc>
what directory?
22:17
resuming from suspend ... i'm amazed that works at all
22:18
the best workaround we currently have for allowing local authentication is LDM_PASSWORD_HASH, or setting up proper LDAP or other remote authentication
22:18
<MRH2>
i was thinking of a cut down version of /etc
22:19
<vagrantc>
why not use LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=true in lts.conf, rather than committing to write code that doesn't exist
22:19
<MRH2>
i'll have a look at LDM_PASSWORD_HASH
22:19
<vagrantc>
should be supported in ldm 2.2.14
22:19
<MRH2>
ok
22:19
trying it now
22:19
<vagrantc>
no idea how well supported mint is at this point
22:20
<MRH2>
does that mean i need to generate a new img for every new user?
22:20
<vagrantc>
no
22:21
it hashes the password at login time and stores it on the client
22:22
basically, LDM logs into the server with ssh using the password provided by the user, mounts the homedir via sshfs, and starts a local session
22:22
with LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=true, it also hashes the password locally so that local authentication works
22:23
it doesn't allow changing the password from the running session though, as that doesn't propegate to the server.
22:23
(well, technically it allows it, but will not be preserved across reboots

22:56

22:56

22:56
