<very_n00b>
alkisg: Good day, please ignoor my prev posting from Saturday. I have since followed the ltsp-pnp page which you recomended. Under "DNS issues" it says that ltsp-server-dnsmasq.conf does not exist. What process sould have created that file, as far as I know everything is installed.

<very_n00b>
everything seems ok except, now "PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout "
12:59
PXE-01: file /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0 not found
13:02
where is the reference to this file located? please help
13:02
<alkisg>
very_n00b: are you here? let's try a quick vnc
13:02
!vnc-dide
13:02
<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.
13:04
<very_n00b>
hi, thanks I'm just in the middle of what looks to be a final problem with the client not finding the tftp /pxelinux.0 file
13:05
perhaps you could tell me what configuration file that is in?
13:05
<alkisg>
Hi, no sorry I've written the tutorial for that
13:05
It includes all the steps necessary for the file to be created etc
13:06
So the problem is that you didn't follow the wiki exactly
13:06
I can't tell you which part you didn't follow without looking at your system
13:09
<very_n00b>
I think I have it, this file /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf
13:09
I have followed all the steps
13:09
<alkisg>
Nah, this is completely wrong.
13:09
Ping me if you want vnc; otherwise just ask in the channel, maybe someone else can help you the way you want

13:14
<very_n00b>
Thank you - really do appreciate your help so far. If no success, will set up VNC for you.
13:14
<alkisg>
You don't need to "set up vnc", it's the one command I wrote above.
13:15
It takes 10 secs to run the command, and 3 mins to solve the issue; but if you prefer to spend 10 days just searching, sure, go ahead
13:18
<very_n00b>
alkisg: I have run the command
13:18
<alkisg>
For vnc? and, what was the output?
13:18
(I didn't receive any connection, are you running X?)
13:19
<very_n00b>
alkisg: fopen failure
13:20
<alkisg>
Use the pastebin
13:20
!paste
13:20
<ltsp`>
paste: the LTSP pastebin is at http://ltsp.pastebin.com. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebin, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. Don't forget to paste the URL of the text here.

working on two computers here ... one moment please
13:22very_n00b_2 has joined IRC (very_n00b_2!29729dce@gateway/web/freenode/ip.41.114.157.206)
13:27
<very_n00b_2>
alkisg: ok pasted, called x11vnc (first-timer so it's done right)
13:27
<alkisg>
You need to paste the URL here
13:30
<very_n00b_2>
https://pastebin.com/yaxB7KN1
13:30
<alkisg>
This isn't the output
13:30
Also, it's srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr
13:30
There's no "/" there
13:31
fopen failure: srv1-dide/ioa.sch.gr => you misttyped a /
13:33
<very_n00b>
ok done
13:39
<alkisg>
very_noob, ok, boot a client
13:39
<very_n00b_2>
ok
13:39
<alkisg>
The problem was that you didn't follow the wiki page. You followed 10 tutorials and THEN the wiki page
13:39
So you had 2 tftpd servers, two dhcp servers etc
13:40
<very_n00b>
yes you are correct in your assesment re: 10 tutorials
13:41
<alkisg>
Does the client boot? I see it got the kernel, but I didn't see it complete boot yet
13:41
<very_n00b>
flashing on the client screen " ** , 6 printk messages dropped **..."
13:41
<alkisg>
How much RAM does the client have?
13:41
<very_n00b>
2GB
13:42
<alkisg>
Can I install virtualbox on your server and see?
13:42
(for a test client)
13:43
<very_n00b>
yes
13:43
<alkisg>
Linux mint is broken in several ways, one of them being that it doesn't install recommends by default
13:43
So you might be missing some package
13:44
Better avoid completely linux mint, and use ubuntu mate, which is a real distro
13:47
very_n00b, ok, the VM boots fine
13:47
<very_n00b>
wow
13:47
<alkisg>
So if you see a problem with the client, it's specific to that client
13:47
<very_n00b>
what do you think we need to change on the client? its an intel nuc
13:48
<alkisg>
First try with any other client to verify it's a problem with that specific client
13:48
<very_n00b>
ok
13:48
<alkisg>
Because you e.g. might have some firewall blocking some ports, and the VM isn't blocked for some reason etc

13:49
<alkisg>
If some other client boots, then I would suggest trying newer kernel/xorg
13:50
Or you might be missing some default xorg packages; mint is horribly broken
13:51
<very_n00b>
ok, will have to look for another computer to use as a client, Thank you very much for your help!
