<jeblesh>
how do i update the image in a chrotless instolation after i updated the kernel, just rerun "ltsp-update-image --cleanup"?
02:21
<vagrantc>
"ltsp-update-image --cleanup /"
02:21
the "/" is important, it tells it where the files you want to update are, otherwise i think it defaults to /opt/ltsp/ARCH

<nehemiah>
I've been writing an app since a while now where a network booted client makes a socket connection to the server while booting. The client then gets the SSH public key from the the server and sets it as authorized key.
15:15
On top of that I've been writing some functionality to manage the clients. Boot them, shut them down, remote control them using VNC and websockets etc.
15:17
It's written in Node. I can share it by the beginning of June as I'm still finishing it up. I'm presenting it next week but I got the 'OK' to share it if there would be any interest.
15:19
I'll very likely still do something with ipxe in the app as that's something I've been hoping to do instead of dynamically generate syslinux config files.

<nehemiah>
alkisg: Yes, it it's very similar. The big difference being that it works in the browser. So you can control your clients from anywhere just using the browser.
16:28
I guess that I can share what I have but I can not maintain it in LTSP form meaning it'll be very specific to how our organization is working.
16:54
<josefig>
nehemiah, that's very nice, monitoring from the browser. Are you releasing the project to open source?
17:04
<nehemiah>
Yes, it will be open source.

<alkisg>
nehemiah: I actually proposed that for last year's gsoc, with the clients connecting to the server via https (not ssh), the server written in node.js, and the gui in javascript; but it was too big a rewrite to be in feature parity within 3 months
18:19
I think it would need something like a year to be as stable
18:23
<nehemiah>
alkisg: Okay, I'm going to take some time this to make what I have a bit more modular. I experience it extremely robust as the sockets reconnect after an outage and commands are just being send using SSH.
18:23
Of course there are always bugs but this is not rocket science so it should be quite stable.
18:25
With modular I mean that I'm going to separate our own logic from what you's typically want for LTSP.

<alkisg>
epoptes works without ltsp as well
18:38
ssh unfortunately is limited to linux
18:38
if you're going for web-based, might as well make it cross platform
18:40
<nehemiah>
I see, yes, that is far removed from our use case although you can send information using the sockets of course.
