highvoltage: sounds like I tested with an older memtest release that worked, but they then updated it and made it paid-only
10:55
I wonder if I should find that old version, or not bother at all...
10:55
https://www.passmark.com/forum/memtest86/42305-network-booting-possible
11:00
Yeah I just re-tested 6.3.0 and it's working fine over PXE
11:00
While 7+ are paid-only
11:02
highvoltage: try `ltsp ipxe --binaries` now and see if it's fixed
11:05
<highvoltage>
alkisg: thanks! can test on monday

11:57

<douglas_br>
hello
12:24
@alkis please one of client out xrandr max 640x480. So, no chance to change de output to 1024x768 or?
12:25
<alkisg>
douglas_br: can you vnc to me?
12:25
!vnc-edide
12:25
<ltsp>
vnc-edide: To share your screen with me, open Epoptes → Help menu → Remote support → Host: srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr, and click the Connect button
12:26
<alkisg>
That usually means that it doesn't use the correct driver or that it can't read the monitor EDID
12:33
douglas_br: I think this needs the openchrome driver, which is only available without the -hwe stack
12:33
So you'd need to install the normal xorg on the server, and run ltsp image
12:33
Is it only one client?
12:33
<douglas_br>
no there is other too
12:34
<alkisg>
Same graphics card?
12:34
<douglas_br>
i dont know
12:34
wait
12:34
<alkisg>
Boot that other one to se
12:34
*see
12:42
douglas_br: check aluno02
12:43
Is it showing better, 1024x768?
12:43
<douglas_br>
no
12:44
confused screen
12:44
<alkisg>
OK you need the openchrome driver then
12:44
This means that you should put a lower xorg version on the server
12:44
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
12:44
This is the "new xorg", you want the "old xorg"
12:45
<douglas_br>
right
12:45
<alkisg>
I.e. apt install xserver-xorg on the server, then ltsp image.
12:45
If you don't manage to do it, ping me later, need to go now
12:45
Or ask in #ubuntu-x
12:45
As it's a graphics issue, not an ltsp issue

14:08

14:09

douglas_br: write a wiki page :D
14:31
<douglas_br>
if I need do this in other lab, install these pack
14:31
<alkisg>
Yes, apt install xserver-xorg and run ltsp image
14:32
<douglas_br>
and that change in xorg?
14:32
<alkisg>
No need to change anything else
14:32
Ah and apt install xserver-xorg-video-openchrome
14:33
<douglas_br>
ohhhh great
14:33
<meo>
on a side note, if it's a VGA cable, cable damage can impact edid reading, happened on more than one occasion to me
14:34
<douglas_br>
thank you. I belive that new labs not be soooo old clients
14:34
<alkisg>
I thought of that but this specific case was a missing driver, openchrome stopped getting packaged by ubuntu
14:34
So 18.04.1 had it, but 18.04.3 didn't
14:34
(xserver-xorg vs xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04)
14:35
