05:25* gehidore pokes alkisg for the sake of times gone past
05:25
<alkisg>
Heya there :)
05:25
I guess you haven't used ltsp in a while? :D
05:26
<gehidore>
sadly board of directors forced me to makes us do a full windows server implementation and win10 clients with active directory
05:26
then 9 months later they forced switch to office 365 and basically nullified the whole blasted thing
05:26
how's the project going though?
05:27
still healthy I presume
05:27
<alkisg>
I'm currently rewritting it from scratch
05:27
It's been maintained, but with no new features,
05:27
while in September the new ltsp will come out with a lot of new features, and a lot of old features removed
05:28
<gehidore>
writing it in a more sane language I hope ;)
05:29
overhaul is needed from time to time!
05:29
<alkisg>
Nah, again shell/python; but I did remove C
05:29
<gehidore>

05:29
WUT
05:29
oh tsk tsk
05:29
<alkisg>
Not many interpreted languages available in initramfs :)
05:29
<gehidore>
at least not python 2.7!?
05:29
<alkisg>
Currently I only needed a "merge passwd" script in python3
05:29
All the rest is shell
05:29
<gehidore>
this I accept as much progress then
05:30
good work!
05:30
<alkisg>
The main thing is that thin clients, ldm, ltspfs etc are going away
05:30
And normal methods are used now: pam based authentication, rdp/x2go for thin clients etc
05:31
<gehidore>
impressive
05:31
still doing fat clients or is it all thin?
05:31
<alkisg>
All fat
05:32
<gehidore>
ohh I read that wrong
05:32
nifty

Hello, I m from Brazil and I m trying to install ltsp. I m using Debian 9.9 and i followed the steps of https://wiki.debian.org/LTSP/Howto but I did not understand the step 8, can anyone help me?
12:42
<alkisg>
!install
12:42
<ltsp`>
install: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu for Ubuntu, or http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation for other distributions
12:42
<alkisg>
Hi jvss, as I said, this ^ is the easiest method
12:43
The tutorial you're following is ancient
12:43
Hrm or wait, someone updated it
12:44
resolvconf? oh my
12:44
Who writes this stuff
12:46
jvss: ok, completely ignore steps 8 to 11 there
12:46
And, it has a lot of wrong steps too
12:47
It seems like someone copy/pasted from somewhere else, and didn't care to read what he did
12:48
<jvss>
Ok, thanks I will try continue the instalation on the step 11
12:49Filipe100 has joined IRC (Filipe100!c8118d03@aruana.ufs.br)
12:49
<Filipe100>
Hello
12:49
<alkisg>
jvss: as I said, better follow this one, except for the PPA part ^
12:49
Hello Filipe100
12:55
Filipe100: you can ask here, in the channel, not in personal messages
12:56
<jvss>
What is the best tutorial for installing ltsp on debian?
12:56
<alkisg>
!install
12:56
<ltsp`>
install: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu for Ubuntu, or http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation for other distributions
12:56
<alkisg>
jvss: it's the one for ubuntu, but omit the ppa part
12:57
It says "commands to add the ppa to your sources"; just don't do that add-apt-repository line; do all the others
12:57
<jvss>
Ok, so I'll follow the one for ubuntu, omitting the ppa part, thanks
12:58
<alkisg>
jvss: it has two options, (a)=chrootless, and (b)=chroot, follow the (a) option
12:58
And for dnsmasq below, again follow (a)
13:01
<jvss>
Okay, thanks!
13:05
<Filipe100>
Alkisg, the server ltsp is server dhcp, right?
13:05
<alkisg>
Filipe100: no; the router is the dhcp server
13:06
The ltsp server is "proxydhcp", it doesn't send ip, it only sends "boot filename"
13:06
<Filipe100>
ok, ty!

alkisg I finished this http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu what is the next step?
13:39
<alkisg>
jvss: if you finished it, you boot the clients
13:39
<jvss>
and the configuration? its need?
13:40
<alkisg>
The configuration mentioned in that page is needed
13:40
No OTHER configuration is needed
13:42
<jvss>
ok, ty!
