<danboid>
alkisg, Looks like I might've found a solution to the Windows UEFI LTSP boot prob https://sourceforge.net/projects/grub2win/
09:29
We're testing it so I'll let you know if it works for us
09:31* alkisg reads its web page...
09:33
<alkisg>
danboid: it sounds like it loads *before* the windows boot manager
09:33
I.e. it replaces wbm
09:34
I.e. plain grub2, just with a windows ui for the grub configuration
09:34
<danboid>
alkisg, Yes, I think that might fly with our ops guys
09:34
<alkisg>
I thought that's exactly what you wanted to avoid...
09:34
<danboid>
Its 'more windowsy'
09:34
<alkisg>
Haha, ok, whatever works for you
09:35
<danboid>
I'm not sure it will work yet, I've passed the link over to the relevant guy and he's checking it out soon
09:35
I don't deal with any of the Windows stuff
09:37
I did say to him that I think it would replace wbm. Its all how well it can be integrated with our deployment tools and that might be easier for them to swallow than regular grub2
09:38
We may end up having to stick with wbm and use something else
09:48
<alkisg>
In any case, it looks like it can help some people that want to easily install grub from within windows
09:49
In general, when there's local storage available, it's best to put the kernel/initrd there, rather than use pxe/ipxe, as the kernel supports more network cards than ipxe
09:51
!learn grub2win as grub2win might be a good alternative to !win32-loader, as it seems to support UEFI as well. Do test it and report back. :)
09:51
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.

16:31
now I'm having problems with domain user login
16:32
if I try: ssh DOMAIN\\user@server it works, but in LDM it does not, the X restarts
16:48
<alkisg>
Faith: great
16:50
Search launchpad, there was a solved bug report about that
16:50
Also try with / instead of \
17:00
<Faith>
alkisg, with / not work. Do you remember a keyword to search about this at launchpad? I'm not finding.
17:11
<alkisg>
active directory ltsp site:launchpad.net
17:11
or something
17:13
Also try with // and with single \
17:13
<mwalters>
are we making mountains?

hi...I add new client into /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf ...should I update image?
17:39
<alkisg>

17:40
<ZAJDAN>
so just reboot the client?
17:43
<alkisg>
yup
17:45
<ZAJDAN>
when the client boot correctly, but doesn't load the system from server...exist some log where I could see what happened?
17:47
https://termbin.com/o8ts
17:48
other previous clients works properly
18:01
<alkisg>
Take a screenshot of the client
18:01
When does it stop, at which messages?
18:01
<ZAJDAN>
black screen
18:01
<alkisg>
Take video
18:01
It helps if we know which point it reached
18:03
a b c d <blank> is different from a b <blank>
18:09
<ZAJDAN>
https://pasteboard.co/HZb8Vnw.jpg
18:19

18:20
<ZAJDAN>

18:20
<alkisg>
try X_SMART_COLOR_DEPTH=False in lts.conf

18:21
<alkisg>

Did it work after client reboot?
18:45
If not, remove quiet splash from pxelinux so that the messages show
18:49
!quiet
18:49
<ltsp>
quiet: to enable the Debian kernel and initramfs to show up more messages, in order to better troubleshoot the boot process, remove "quiet" from /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
18:49
<alkisg>
!quiet-splash
18:49
<ltsp>
quiet-splash: to disable the splash screen in Ubuntu, in order to see any boot error messages, run sudo gedit /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default and remove quiet splash plymouth:force-splash vt.handoff=7
