01:43* vagrantc wonders what bcg's "locale -a" output is like
01:44
<vagrantc>
i've enabled nb_NO.UTF-8 and running ldminfod still fails with both python2 and python3 with LC_ALL=C LANG=C
01:44
"locale -a" doesn't output any localized content, just a list of locales
01:45
any UTF-8 enabled locale it runs fine

Howdy folks — setting up a new server…
19:26
setting up w/directions at http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager/Installation and also unplugged the cable during running the initial setup as I’m using a 2-nic system.
19:28
It boots nicely (once I applied the fix on that installation page) and am able to log in AD users. Problem with internet access:
19:28
on client machines ping 8.8.8.8 shows success, ping google.com fails.
19:28
<vagrantc>
what's in /etc/resolv.conf on the client?
19:29
<dgroos>
Hey vagrantc! I’ll put here…
19:30
nameserver 192.168.67.1
19:31
<vagrantc>
do you have a dns server or caching proxy configured on 192.168.67.1 ?
19:31
e.g. the ltsp server
19:32
dnsmasq can function in that capacity
19:33
<dgroos>
Using the ltsp-manager setup so…? on the server /etc/resolv.conf has: nameserver 127.0.0.1 and search: mpls.k12.mn.us which serves for our district
19:33
pretty sure it uses dnsmasq as I’m doing out-of-the-box ltsp-pnp fat clients via ltsp-manager.
19:34
<vagrantc>
look at /etc/dnsmasq*
19:34
<dgroos>
‘k
19:34
<vagrantc>
also, pgrep -l -a -f dnsmasq
19:35
i vaguely recall some issue about how ubuntu configured dnsmasq that caused issues, but never encountered it directly as i mostly use debian
19:36
<alkisg>
Hey all
19:36
<dgroos>
the latter command shows: 922 /usr/sbin/dnsmasq -x /var/run/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.pid -u dnsmasq -r /var/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf -7 /etc/dnsmasq.d,.dpkg-dist,.dpkg-old,.dpkg-new --local-service --trust-anchor=.,190… a long number. I’ll check the former now
19:36
<alkisg>
dgroos: does internet work on the server itself?
19:36
<dgroos>
Hey alkisg !
19:36
it does
19:36
<alkisg>
Can you vnc to me from a client?
19:36
Or from the server...
19:36
x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr
19:36
...or the corresponding ip
19:36
<vagrantc>
name resolution is broken
19:37
!dnsmasq
19:37
<ltsp>
Error: "dnsmasq" is not a valid command.
19:44
<alkisg>
dgroos: your setup is fine but dnsmasq needed restarting
19:44
Seems like a dnsmasq bug, not a misconfiguration
19:44
<dgroos>
? I wonder why? O
19:45
<alkisg>
I think I've seen it a few times here too, but I didn't get the time to look into it
19:45
<dgroos>
OK
19:45
<alkisg>
So if it happens again, just do service dnsmasq restart, and file a bug report so that we look into it
19:45
<dgroos>
I’m wondering if it happened as I didn’t do the workaround on the installation page right away.
19:45
I waited till it failed to boot, then did it.?
19:45
<alkisg>
Ah, possibly, if dnsmasq was started without the correct configuration, that would happen, yes
19:46
Because the "initial-setup" redirects some broken dnsmasq configuration
19:46
<dgroos>
I suggest adding to the instructions (or if I can edit it) to say “if this fix is run later, restart dnsmasq.
19:47
or something like that
19:47
Thanks so much!
19:47
<alkisg>
Not until we verify that this is indeed an issue
19:47
It may be an unrelated dnsmasq bug
19:47
np
19:47
<dgroos>
OK, I’ll keep my eyes open…
19:48
Have a great evening, and thanks vagrantc , too.
19:49* vagrantc waves
20:06
<dgroos>
As a test, just re-booted the server, and again lost internet on the clients and was able to fix it by running on the server: sudo service network-manager restart
20:06
Where would I file that bug report?
20:12
would that be on: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp probably not?

20:15
<vagrantc>
dgroos: you can file it there, and we can recategorize it if needed
20:16
we, meaning, probably not me :)
20:16
<dgroos>
vagrantc: OK thanks!
20:16
;-)
20:16
<vagrantc>
generally better to file it somewhere than have it get lost because of uncertainty
20:17
<dgroos>
Indeed.
20:17
Any way to get the dnsmasq restart command to automatically run after restart?
20:25
OK, got it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ltsp/+bug/1741336
20:29
<alkisg>
dgroos: does it need a full network-manager restart, or is a dnsmasq restart enough?
20:29
<dgroos>
I’ll test…
20:29
<alkisg>
And, it would be best to file it against dnsmasq too then, because that's where the code that need to be fixed would be...

20:34
<dgroos>
Just re-tested and this time internet worked ??
20:35
Found this: #774970
20:35
dnsmasq doesn't start automatically on boot https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=774970
20:41
hmmm… and on thie re-re test, internet at client doesn’t work…
20:43
…and yes it was enough to run: sudo service dnsmasq restart
20:47
So, maybe it’s #774970? It does include a patch so not sure where to go from there. I’ll wait for more directions before I post there.
21:12
gotta go!
