Good morning! How can I debug one client that remains (reproducably) 9 minutes on "Trying to load pxelinux..." and then continues loading the root fs image and nbd swap device from the nbd server? I don't see anything supiscious in the dhcpd or tftp/nbd logs.

<alkisg>
vlt: you mean that eventually the client works fine, it just goes extremely slow in tftp?

11:22
<vlt>
alkisg: Yes. And for now it seems to be only that one client.
11:22
<alkisg>
vlt: is that with ipxe, or with pxe stack?
11:23
<vlt>
alkisg: PXE booting set in the client's BIOS
11:23
(if that answers the question)
11:26
<alkisg>
vlt: right, so, it might be an issue with the bios, can you try with ipxe?
11:45
<vlt>
alkisg: Meanwhile the problem is gone :hm:
11:46
The client boots just fine. Four times in a row now.
11:46
alkisg: Thanks for listening :D
11:46
<alkisg>
:D

alkisg: is it possible for ldm to execute a script when a user logs out, or is that something we should rely on our desktop environment to do?
17:24
<vagrantc>
it's possible, but it's very unreliable
17:25
<mwalters>
looks like lightdm allows you to specify a "clean up" script
17:25
<vagrantc>
the problem is the ssh connection may be broken by the time the script runs
17:25
<mwalters>
gotcha
17:25
<vagrantc>
or if the client gets abruptly disconnected
17:25
and you're relying on the cleanup process...
17:25
<mwalters>
yeah, what I'm looking to do could easily be done via cron
17:25
<vagrantc>
better to do at (pre) login
17:26
<mwalters>
on the server, vs the client
17:26
<vagrantc>
or something like that...
17:26
<mwalters>
basically, I just want to clean up ~/Download
17:26
we also have users that NEVER *&#^$*&# LOG OUT ;)
17:27
<vagrantc>
consider them satisfied customers? :)
17:28
<mwalters>
until I need to update the client image
17:33
<vagrantc>
i used to have some kiosks that ran the session using "timeout N /path/to/real/session"
17:33
well, not exactly kiosks ... guest session type things
17:34
and then a popup near the deadline that would warn them of impending session timeout
17:34
could just log back in again, of course, but it was usually enough to convince them to give up the spot for someone else
17:35
and if there wasn't anyone else, it would be fine to log back in again
17:54
<mwalters>
gotcha
