IRC chat logs for #ltsp on irc.freenode.net (webchat)


Channel log from 29 December 2017   (all times are UTC)

00:00
<vagrantc>
or possibly: ssh $server ltsp-chroot --chroot $myteam apt-get install foo && ssh $server ltsp-update-image /opt/ltsp/$myteam
00:00
if not exactly that, something basically like that
00:02
then reboot their client to get the updated software
00:03
<Tim>
but they remote into the main server itself and install the software, then build the image and reboot back into that instance
00:03
<vagrantc>
yes
00:03
you could give them privledges to install locally to experiment to make sure that's what they need ...
00:04
to me, i'd just build debian packages out of whatever projects you're using and use sbuild with schroot, or pbuilder ...
00:05
then you have to define what the build-dependencies of your project are, and then sbuild or pbuilder installs those build-dependencies in a chroot and builds your project
00:05
and spits out an installable .deb

<Eugene_>
Hello there! I'm trying to use a fresh install of Ubuntu Mate x64 (with updates) with LTSP-manager. But every time on client side I ended with this repeated message: Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... done.
10:07
After 15-20 lines it ended with (initramfs): random: crng init done
10:08
Does anyone know any fix or maybe workaround?
10:23
<alkisg>
Eugene_: that usually means that you didn't apply all of the wiki page
10:24
It has a section there for ipappend and for nbd, which are the 2 most common causes of the error you're mentioning
10:26
<Eugene_>
thanks I also thinks it's about nbd but still didn't find the solution
10:27
<alkisg>
Eugene_: run this:
10:27
!vnc-edide
10:27
<ltsp>
vnc-edide: To share your screen with me, open Epoptes → Help menu → Remote support → Host: srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr, and click the Connect button
10:38
<alkisg>
(anyway bbl, ping me before running it to see if I'm here :))
10:42
<Eugene_>
not sure I'm able to launch that.. feeling me so newbie
10:44
Epopte shows me Permission denied / must be a member of Epoptes group though I'm already there
11:00
<alkisg>
Eugene_: that means you haven't read the ltsp-manager wiki pages
11:00
Eugene_: please run them all again...
11:00
Eugene_: I'll be back and available for help later on, maybe in 40 mins...
11:01
!vnc-dide
11:01
<ltsp>
vnc-dide: To share your screen with me, run this: sudo apt-get --yes install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr - this is a reverse connection, it doesn't need port forwarding etc.
11:01
<alkisg>
At that point, you'll be able to use that to share your screen with me, if you still haven't read the wiki pages then

<Eugene_>
thanks alkisg I seemd to set epoptes correctly and add you to remote support channel
12:28
I did read and install LTSP fix from oficial wiki page, update LTSP image afterwards but nothing changed
12:43forum has joined IRC (forum!~Thunderbi@62-47-178-104.adsl.highway.telekom.at)
12:43
<alkisg>
Eugene_: so, the problem is that you followed the ipappend step afterwards
12:43forum has left IRC (forum!~Thunderbi@62-47-178-104.adsl.highway.telekom.at, Client Quit)
12:44
<alkisg>
I.e. you followed some of the wiki steps but not all of them, and LATER you went and run some of them again, but not in order
12:44
Boot a client now, it should work
12:44
(you had ipappend 2 instead of ipappend 3)
12:47
<Eugene_>
yes you're right.. Instead of doing everything in order, I'm trying now to fix something
12:52
hmmm.. unfortunately nothing changed
12:54
how may I show you the client screen?
12:54
among others, it says /dev/nbd0 does not exist. Dropping to shell. Probably that may be an issue
12:56
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems - Boot args / Check root delay / Check root / missing modules
13:12
<alkisg>
Eugene_: I restarted your nbd-server in case you created the conf file afterwards
13:12
(again not following the steps in order)
13:12
Try to boot a client again
13:13
<Eugene_>
ok, rebooting
13:14
in fact, I've been trying to make it work for a week already, starting with the server version
13:15
<alkisg>
Yeah next time just follow the steps exactly, it takes 1 hour including the os installation :)
13:15
<Eugene_>
but due to lack of knowledge this took time))
13:15
<alkisg>
Nah. People that lack knowledge follow instructions, those that know a bit, think they can ignore them :P
13:16
Veeeery usual here with teachers :D
13:16
*common
13:16* alkisg supports 1000+ schools here
13:16
<Eugene_>
wow
13:17
its really impressive
13:19
ooopss.. it daoesn't work again.. i'm really sorry
13:20
<alkisg>
Eugene_: ok let me see with virtalbox
13:20
because i need to leave asap...
13:25
Eugene_: are you connecting the client to the second nic directly, without a switch?
13:26
never mind
13:26
wrong nic
13:26
!nbd-client
13:26
<ltsp>
nbd-client: To try mounting the NBD image from the client initramfs: nbd-client 192.168.67.1 -N /opt/ltsp/i386 /dev/nbd0
