<gordo>
Hello! Guys, I'd like some advise... I have to configure a LTSP server to 20 users, that they use in the same time. What configuration of hardware do you recommend me? What OS and GUI do you think that will have the best performance?
13:35
Do think that it's a bad idea virtualize the LTSP server?
14:33
<alkisg>
gordo: the most important thing are the client specs. Which cpu exactly and how much ram?
15:39
<gordo>
Really? I thought that the server specs was the most important thing, because the programs run on server, right?
15:39
The client specs: Dual core, 2G RAM.
15:40
Dual Core 2.25ghzm 2GB DDR3
15:40
What do you think?

<alkisg>
gordo: your clients are good enough to work as diskless ltsp fat clients
15:46
Which means they load the os from the server but they run it with their own cpu
15:46
Which in turn means you don't need a good server. Even one of them can be the server.

<ltsp>
ltsp-manager: LTSP Manager is a GUI tool that makes LTSP maintenance easy. It's the recommended way to install LTSP in common setups. More info: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager

<alkisg>
Follow this tutorial to the letter and you'll be fine ^
15:56
<gordo>
Ok, thank you very much! :)

vagrantc: now my ltsp-tree should merge. there's even one new common fix.
18:50
I'm running that version already.

19:15
<vagrantc>
bcg: cool!
19:15
bcg: did you rebase it?
19:26
<bcg>
no, merge.
19:28
<highvoltage>
gehidore: haha
19:32
<vagrantc>
bcg: pushed!
19:32
bcg: in the future, it would be nice to have the features, bugfixes, etc. in separate branches
19:32
bcg: so we're not merging the merge of a merged merge
19:33
bcg: nice to see the redhat family back in the folds :)
19:34
bcg: not familiar with the release processes ... will this actually get merged into rhel7 ?
19:45
<bcg>
sure, but this one had 6 months of work, and rebase gave too much errors.
19:46
I do not work for Redhat, so this will not be merged to rhel7 (base os). epel7 maybe someday.
19:47
vagrantc: in the future, it would be nice to have direct commit access... :-)
19:48
<vagrantc>
well, at least it gives an updated foundation for someone to start on it
19:48
<bcg>
I can provide pre-compiled rpms for rhel7.
19:51
or the .spec file to compile it yourself, no modifications needed.
19:52
<vagrantc>
bcg: if ltsp was more active, i'd propose that nobody really push directly, but we've only got 1-3 active committers now
19:55
<bcg>
I can work with my own clone, it just bit more work for me and you. So it's up to you.
19:56
Although I don't work for Redhat, I'm paid to keep ltsp running on rhel7.

<bcg>
...and I've been doing that for years with old ltsp version and rhel6.
19:59
Anyway, thanks for upstream merge. It's again so late (22:00), time to go.
20:11
<vagrantc>
bcg: well, at least point we can't be too picky about redhat support, so as long as everything keeps working, it seems worth giving commit access

Now that my setup is almost done, I have tried to enable quiet splash
21:46
it works well for fat clients but for thin, the system boots and does not goto ldm, i have to hit alt-f7 to do so
21:46
would anyone encountered this issue before ? thanks
21:46
<vagrantc>
that's usually a sign that something else is broken ... e.g. the overlay isn't writeable
21:47
well, maybe not... if it's actually running
21:50
<onixx>
vagrantc: it works if i alt f7 I can login no problem
21:51
this is the only change I made in update-kernel.conf: CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="init=/sbin/init-ltsp forcepae quiet splash".. if I remove the quiet splash option, then no more issue
21:52
<vagrantc>
what about if you just remove splash ?
21:52
leave quiet
