<eirikb>
If I use ltsp-update-image -c, --cleanup, how can I log into the client? I don't want ldap or anything like that, one single local user is fine
18:38
<||cw>
eirikb: using the server's users
18:40
<eirikb>
I thought -c removed the users, I'm not able to log in using the servers users
18:42
<vagrantc>
eirikb: how are you trying to log in? from LDM, the console, ssh?
18:43
<eirikb>
console, directly on the client (testing in VBox)
18:43
<vagrantc>
eirikb: there are no local users
18:43
<eirikb>
Could there be local users?
18:44
<vagrantc>
!ltsp-pam
18:44
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'ltsp-pam', but I do know about these similar topics: 'ltsp-pnp'
18:44
<vagrantc>
hrm.
18:44
eirikb: what's your use-case? what are you trying to accomplish?
18:45
the short answer is "of course" but knowing your goal might help understand what to recommend
18:46
<eirikb>
Clients are Jenkins slaves, running diskless debian without desktop (ltsp-client-core). I only need a default user for maintenance (will hardly ever log into them)
18:46
<vagrantc>
and they're stateless? if they reboot everything going away is fine?
18:47
<eirikb>
Yes
18:47
My ultimate goal is to run client from a local VDI image, but I haven't been able to do that yet, but I am able to run from "ltsp-update-image -c /"
18:47
<vagrantc>
you could create the users at boot
18:47
from init-ltsp.d or from an lts.conf option
18:47
<eirikb>
Hmm yes, add a boot script. I need this anyway for my Jenkins slave, thinking about just adding a systemd service at boot

18:48GodFather has joined IRC (GodFather!~rcc@50-200-10-106-static.hfc.comcastbusiness.net)
18:48
<vagrantc>
or sure, do stuff with systemd tricks :)
18:48
<alkisg>
!ROOT
18:48
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'ROOT', but I do know about these similar topics: 'ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH'
18:48
<alkisg>
!ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH
18:48
<ltsp>
ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH: To be able to login as root in vt1, with password "qwer1234", put this in lts.conf: INIT_COMMAND_ROOT_HASH="sed 's!^root:[^:]*:!root:\$6\$p2LdWE6j\$PDd1TUzGvvIkj9SE8wbw1gA/MD66tHHlStqi1.qyv860oK47UnKcafSKqGp7cbgZUPlgyPv6giCVyCSCdJt1b0:!' -i /etc/shadow"
18:48
<alkisg>
...things like that. Hey guys :)
18:48* vagrantc waves to alkisg
18:48
<eirikb>
Hi alkisg. Thanks for the link, I could try that
18:49
<alkisg>
or, this:
18:49
!screen_02
18:49
<ltsp>
screen_02: To get a root shell on an Ubuntu thin client: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ClientTroubleshooting#Using_a_shell_SCREEN
18:49
<alkisg>
I.e. just SCREEN_02=shell, and you get a shell without having to log in
18:49
<vagrantc>
eirikb: what kind of stateless maintenance do you need to do?
18:49
eirikb: or more debugging?
18:50
<eirikb>
Nothing at all, but when setting it up the first time I need to log in to test stuff. After it is set up I plan to never log in to them again
18:50
But I never know. Now I need it initially for testing the setup
18:50
<alkisg>
vagrant, btw, my epoptes progress page: https://github.com/eellak/gsoc2018-epoptes/wiki/Status - it's going well! :)
18:50
<vagrantc>
then SCREEN_02=shell on first boot is probably the easiest way ... or the INIT_COMMAND_ROOT_HASH option
18:51
<eirikb>
Will try it, thanks
18:53
<vagrantc>
alkisg: very busy! exciting!
18:54
<alkisg>
I think we'll also bump the version number to 18.09 when it's out :D
18:54
<vagrantc>
yay
18:54
if there's one thing ubuntu got right...
18:54
i like the date-based versions
