alkisg: first time you told me about http boot support, you told me to modify only "dhcp-boot=tag:iPXE,http://192.168.67.1/ltsp/ltsp.ipxe", 2 days ago you modified also "pxe-service=tag:proxy,tag:iPXE,X86PC,"ltsp.ipxe",http://192.168.67.1/ltsp/ltsp.ipxe" and "pxe-service=tag:proxy,tag:iPXE,X86-64_EFI,"ltsp.ipxe",http://192.168.67.1/ltsp/ltsp.ipxe", was just a mistake since you used "sed" or all 3 lines have to be changed?
09:20
<alkisg>
markit: did you see the irclogs about http?
09:20
You had an additional "tftp" dir
09:20
It's best to change all 3 lines, yes
09:20
<markit>
let me check the irc log log
09:21
<alkisg>
(07:17:22 AM) alkisg: markit, the configuration should be "<VirtualHost *:80> Alias /ltsp"..., without tftp there
09:22
<markit>
ok, I see, maybe I will try again later
09:23
but I used ln -s /srv/tftp/ltsp/ /var/www/html while you suggested "ln -s /srv/tftp /var/www/html", your "mistake" or do I have something wrong in my setup?
09:26
<alkisg>
My mistake there, I didn't actually check the command
09:30
<markit>
with VM's I was unable to reproduce the broadcast vnc problem, probably the system is too slow to show it :( I have to wait to go to school lab
09:30
<alkisg>
Is there any firewall involved?
09:30
<markit>
no
09:31
also the "video adapter" is a virtual one, maybe is a "amd" bug on the server driver
09:31
of the "real" ltsp server
09:31
<alkisg>
Maybe
09:36
<markit>
wondering also if I'd better create a systemd service to run "python3 -m http.server 80 --directory /srv/tftp" and avoid the apache installation and "ln" stuff if I don't plan to use the server as web server too.
09:36
<alkisg>
You can put it under [server] POST_SERVICE_RUN_PYTHON="..." in ltsp.conf
09:37
Not sure how stable python3 -m http.server is, though, if it can serve multiple clients without hanging etc
09:37
<markit>
I'm not able to change ltsp.ipxe as suggested (generically) in issue 75, and in any case the modification will be lost after an upgrade I guess
09:38
oh, great!
09:41
<alkisg>
Changes in ltsp.ipxe can be preserved by many methods, either POST_IPXE_x="sed. ..." or even with an ltsp.ipxe.it (italian) template

<markit>
are you planning to implement the http - tftp fallback in the official ltsp.ipxe? Should be no harm if http server is not available or used, or will introduce a big delay for tftp setup?
09:49
<alkisg>
No; I will only work on http support for ltsp in the far future, see https://github.com/ltsp/ltsp/issues/147
09:50
<markit>
I'm confused... al PXE nic are able to http boot? I thought only new uefi enabled ones...
09:53
<alkisg>
Only new uefi ones can boot without tftp.But after loading ipxe, they can all load the kernel via http.

09:58woernie has joined IRC (woernie!~werner@87.139.183.182)
09:59
<markit>
ah, so tftp -> load a small ipxe from LTSP server -> load kernel with http, a 2 stage boot. New uefi ones will jump directly to load kernel through http. So http server will be mandatory, ok
09:59
<alkisg>
...it will be mandatory in the future, but not for the kernel / initrd
10:00
But because the ltsp architecture will need it to send ltsp.conf etc
