<vsuojanen>
how can I prevent NBD exiting "Negotiation: .. Error: Server closed connetion" in 14.04. I started with fresh tc.sch.gr trusty ltsp install and it booted nice with 3.13.0-160. but trying to install ubuntu-desktop to the image I get the boot NBD negotiation issue
08:53
it updates the kernel to 3.13.0-162 when I install ubuntu-desktop
08:54
<alkisg>
vsuojanen: "fresh ts.sch.gr trusty" doesn't exist, we never used 14.04 in greek schools
08:55
So I don't know of any developer that tested ltsp for ubuntu 14.04
08:55
We used 12.04 a lot, 16.04 a bit, and now 18.04 a lot
08:57
<vsuojanen>
:)
08:58
ok. what you recommend for old client? this is what I started today with http://ppa.launchpad.net/ts.sch.gr/ppa/ubuntu trusty main
08:59
<alkisg>
vsuojanen: what do you mean "old client"? Which cpu model and how much RAM?
08:59
<vsuojanen>
HP 5740
09:01
Atom N280 1.66 GHz 2MB RAM
09:02
<alkisg>
2GB?
09:02
<vsuojanen>
yes *2GB RAM
09:02
<alkisg>
OK, use Ubuntu MATE 18.04 32 bit
09:02
!install
09:02
<ltsp>
install: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu for Ubuntu, or http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation for other distributions
09:02
<alkisg>
Follow these instructions, the chrootless method, with the 32bit iso
09:04
You have lots of RAM but very weak CPU, so you might want to run it as a thin client with some localapps, or the opposite, as a fat client with some remoteapps. LTSP supports all those cases.
09:04
I.e. you'd only need to change 1-2 lines in lts.conf to change modes
09:08
<vsuojanen>
thanks. I tried some 1-2months ago with the 18.04 ubuntu but it did not work. maybe I check this one more time.
09:10
<alkisg>
vsuojanen: it works, some schools do have N280 and they have no issues
09:10
Try with MATE, not with GNOME. I.e. follow the wiki steps exactly. And if you see an error, come here and mention the exact message.

<bcg>
elias_a: how about another Turku person?
10:25
<elias_a>
bcg: Oh - Hi there! :)
10:27
I joined the channel because on #ubuntu there was this one guy asking if it is possible to run 2 xserver instances on same desktop and switch between them.
10:28
Using same monitor, mouse and keyboard of course...
10:28
He had a solid use case though...

elias_a: you can run multiple X session on different TTYs, that's how the "switch user" functionality works.
16:06
you can also run a vncserver instance have whatever you like running in that
