<Eric4>
hi guys, do you know if debian 9 strech works with ltsp for now ?
16:44
<vagrantc>
it *should*
16:45
Eric4: are you having any particular issues?
16:46
major change since debian jessie was the switch to NBD
16:46
NFS may not really work anymore
16:52
<Eric4>
few weird things : i had to install and configure manually tftpd-hpa, booting is strange it says no /etc/rc.local and it gets stuck on pxelinux ... few seconds and then displays a session manager. I found i weird and thought as debian 9 was recent maybe ltsp was not fully operationnal
16:52
sorry for my english
16:58
i forgot to put back my lts.conf. Now it's the same but the display manager is gdm. I guess i booted in a thin client mode ?
16:59
<alkisg>
Eric4: did you run `ltsp-config dnsmasq` to configure dnsmasq as the tftpd server before installing tftpd-hpa?
16:59
Also, you installed gdm into the chroot?!
16:59gvy has left IRC (gvy!~mike@altlinux/developer/mike, Quit: Leaving)
16:59
<Eric4>
no i am in pnp mode. And i don't use dnsmasq as i already have a pxe server on my network
17:00
<alkisg>
dnsmasq works as tftp too
17:00
So you can use it even if you don't use it for dhcp
17:01
I.e. you just needed `ltsp-config dnsmasq --no-proxydhcp`
17:01
<Eric4>
so what's the point using dnsmasq ? i already have a dhcp and and a pxe server on my network. Sorry i'm a bit slow to understand
17:01
:+-)
17:01
<alkisg>
dnsmasq can do dhcp, dns, tftpd
17:02
You only need tftpd
17:02
So if you use dnsmasq, you're using the same as other ltsp users so we can help you more easily
17:02
<Eric4>
you mean dnsmasq replaces tftpd hpa ?
17:02
<alkisg>
Yes
17:02
While tftpd-hpa for example doesn't start on boots some times, and noone cares to fix it because we don't use it
17:03
Anyways, so your current issue is that you see gdm instead of ldm?
17:03
<Eric4>
i didn't know as my previous ubuntu setup ran without configuring dnsmasq or tftpd
17:04
<alkisg>
You were transferring the tftp dir to your pxe server after each ltsp server update?
17:04
That sounds like too much trouble...
17:04
<Eric4>
I just add a pxe entry to my existing pxe to chain to LTSP pxe server
17:05
it allows me to keep my wds stuff, and to have several ltsp server on my network
17:05
<alkisg>
(08:03:29 μμ) Eric4: i didn't know as my previous ubuntu setup ran without configuring dnsmasq or tftpd
17:05
That means that your ltsp server didn't have any tftp server
17:05
Which can't work if you don't put your tftp files elsewhere
17:05
Which you say you didn't do
17:06
So, you're clearly not mentioning something...
17:06
<Eric4>
yes it had one but i didn't even configure it or apt-get install it
17:06
<alkisg>
Then it had tftpd-hpa
17:06
That's what ltsp used to default to in the past
17:06
<Eric4>
it was configured automatically, i guess by apt-get install ltsp-server
17:06
<alkisg>
Anyways, those are history
17:06
What's your current issue?
17:07
<Eric4>
i just have a weird message on boot about /etc/rc.local missing
17:07
<alkisg>
And is it there?
17:08
<Eric4>
so i was starting to wonder if ltsp was fully working on debian 9 as it was released few days ago
17:09
and the behavior of the boot is different than ubuntu as the screen is stuck on "pxelinux ...... " for 10 seconds before displaying gdm
17:10
how can i know if i'm booting thin or fat client
17:10
<alkisg>
You asked one question
17:10
I asked for clarification, you didn't answer
17:10
<Eric4>
yes sorry
17:10
<alkisg>
Then you asked 4 other questions
17:11
Can we take those one by one?
17:11
<Eric4>
yes :-)
17:12
i have no current issue. But the fact that it tells me rc.local missing and that tftp hpa didn't work out of the box made me wonder if ltsp worked fine with debian stretch
17:13
you answered my question. No problem if the rc.local is missing
17:13
<alkisg>
(08:07:41 μμ) alkisg: And is it there?
17:13
ls -l /etc/rc.local on a client.
17:13
<Eric4>
oh sorry i misunderstood. I though you meant is that all ..
17:13
i don't have any /etc/rc.local
17:14
so the message is normal
17:14
<alkisg>
And unrelated to ltsp then
17:14
<Eric4>
it might come from debian obiously
17:14
yes
17:14
<alkisg>
(08:10:32 μμ) Eric4: how can i know if i'm booting thin or fat client
17:14
Login, open a terminal
17:14
<Eric4>
yes :-)
17:14
<alkisg>
If it says "user@server", you are on the server
17:14
If it says "user@ltsp123", you are on a fat client
17:14
(so, user@server is thin client)
17:15
<Eric4>
Ok thanks ! And how can i prevent thin client mode (as i don't want to use or configure it )?
17:15
<alkisg>
If you have more than 400 mb ram, the clients are automatically fat
17:15
So you don't need to prevent anything
17:16
<Eric4>
cool
17:16
Thank you for your help. No more question :-) My collegue is waiting for me to go and have a beer
17:16
<alkisg>
Nice
17:16
Have fun!
17:16
<vagrantc>
you mentioned you had an old lts.conf, which you might need to make sure to check against current defaults
17:17
<Eric4>
Yes i will boss :-) Gonna check. Have fun to ;-)
17:17* vagrantc waves
17:17
<Eric4>
thank you vagrantc
