<alkisg>
Chakal77: what you say is a bit confusing, an "ubuntu server with gui" is the same as an "ubuntu desktop"
04:59
So, just install a desktop ubuntu, and create a custom session in /usr/share/xsessions, this isn't related to ltsp at all...
05:05
(it also doesn't need anything but one simple script, it should be doable in a few minutes)

But how i can do this script? Do you have any documentation to help me?
11:38spectra has joined IRC (spectra!~spectra@debian/developer/spectra)
11:41
<alkisg>
Chakal77: documentation on how to make a bash script that will call vmware horizon? Eh, no, I don't have documentation for that, but it should be just a couple of commands, so even if you don't know bash, a small google should solve it for you
11:42
<Chakal77>
Ok
11:42
Thanks

<tanjiro>
hello, someone have experience with odroid and ltsp?
12:45
<alkisg>
tanjiro: I think vagrantc has used odroid with ltsp, why?

12:48
<tanjiro>
alkisg: I would like to use odroid as a client ltsp, but the tutorial in the odroid wiki didn't help me to booting odroid from network with ltsp
12:49
<alkisg>
What tutorial?
12:49
<tanjiro>
https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/application_note/software/pxe_boot

<tanjiro>
The tutorial consider that a server is a machine odroid, but my server is a desktop with server ltsp, so i adapted, but this generated somenes problems
12:57
someones*
12:57
Like
12:58
In this part PXE Client Settings
12:59
alkisg have errors in this part: "sudo wget -O /media/boot/boot.ini https://git.io/v5ZNg"
13:00
saying the repository was empty
13:00
<mwalters>
tanjiro: you likely want to follow the LTSP wiki for setting up the server itself, not the odroid tutorial
13:00
Though I'm not totally sure how to handle the arch differences when pulling down kernels for the odroid client
13:01
<alkisg>
tanjiro: the repository was empty? That doesn't make much sense, can you copy/paste both the command and the output?
13:01
In general, ltsp puts things in /opt/ltsp/chroot, not in /media
13:02
Ah never mind that's the sd card there
13:02
So if you have the sd card at /media/boot , it should work fine
13:03
<mwalters>
If he's using the odroid for the server, yes. That doesn't sound liek the case here. From my understanding he's usuing a "regular" PC as the server, and an odroid as the client
13:03
<alkisg>
The sd card can be prepared in any pc, even in windows
13:03
He just needs a boot.ini in the sd card, and then to put it to the odroid client
13:03
<mwalters>
Oh, this is the "pre-ltsp" environment? just to get nbd/nfs up and running
13:04
<alkisg>
Odroid uses u-boot for netbooting, a special boot manager
13:04
<mwalters>
Gotcha
13:04
<alkisg>
Which requires the uboot binary, and a boot.ini
13:04
It's similar to "bootcode.bin" for raspberry pis
13:04
<mwalters>
yeah, I think I'm getting the process flow now
13:05
(now that I remembered that at least the raspi can't netboot "on its own")
13:05
<alkisg>
rpi3 has bootcode.bin burned into it, so that one can; rpi2 cannot without an sd card
13:05
<mwalters>
Oh, that's good to know (I only have a 1 and 2 at home)
13:09
<alkisg>
Anyways, /me waves, later...
13:09
<tanjiro>
mwalters: i'm using the tutorial odroid tutorial because this necessary somenones configuration to boot the clients odroid from network with ltsp
13:10
I am using a regular PC like server on it is also installed ltsp
13:11
alkisg: please a moment, i'm copying this error to send here

<alkisg>
tanjiro-server-l: that just means that you run "git clone" two times, so it can't clone it two times to the same directory
14:24
<tanjiro-server-l>
ok
14:24
thankyou!

I've bought like 10 of these this year: https://www.neweggbusiness.com/product/product.aspx?item=9b-56-164-115 . They're great if your CPU requirements aren't too high.
16:30
They have a fan, but they're super quiet

2634 score, that's fine :)
17:40
No internal disk or dom by default, right?
18:16
<mwalters>
nope
18:17
They're UEFI only, but work great once you get dnsmasq set up correctly
18:17
but yeah, < $200 w/ 8gb of memory
18:18
They make fine "regular" office worker machines too... had one w/ win10 on it for a person who needed speach to text for work...

I have an older brix, been working fine a long time now
18:32
<mwalters>
yeah, we have a number of older i3 ones which are fanless and thinner... they're great too
18:32
(they also support pxe ;) )
18:33
I think I had one DOA with these newer ones out of like 15... it was an easy RMA w/ newegg
