Ryan52: there should be a ltsp hackfest at freegeek on the 9th and 10th
|00:48||* johnny wishes he could come|
sounds like there will be gentoo, debian and fedora folks there
altho i doubt i'd be much help yet
I know about Fedora too.
|00:48||* Ryan52 is scared of gentoo|
well, fedora folk have been working hard on getting ltsp5 going... and gentoo just needs to get a little kickstart
fedora people are gonna make it too?
dberkholz: eric harrison said he'll be there
vagrantc: btw, got any interest in joining up with an X hackfest the same day?
i just got an email about one on the 9th
what time is the ltsp hackfest?
dberkholz: i'm more free on sunday than saturday
dberkholz: you know, we didn't really discuss times ... :)
vagrantc: oh, i'll probably leave here around 10, get there in time to kick things off with lunch around noon, and go till late.
dberkholz: ok ... i've got commitments from 11-12 and 1-2 and 3-7 ... but all of those are somewhat flexible
dberkholz: in that i'm largely covering for other folks if they don't show
|00:52||* johnny wants to come to freegeek|
vagrantc: hmm. do you have time to get me set up during those commitments, or should i show up in a free time?
dberkholz: probably won't know for sure till 10:45 or so
vagrantc: ok. so what would you recommend i do?
dberkholz, coffeeshop? :)
if you need me for any sort of testing, lemme know
dberkholz: shouldn't take too much to get you set up ... i'magine we can just manage ...
dberkholz: the 11-12 is just a backup for teaching a basic commandline class :)
vagrantc: yeah. pretty much just point me to wherever the computer is, and the plugins, and i'm good to go.
dberkholz: heh :)
dberkholz: freegeek opens at 11, but if you think you might show up before then, i can get you in ... maybe i'll just show up early and get you a diskless terminal all set up and ready to go
vagrantc: hmm. i could probably manage 10:30 or so.
it's ~1:30 drive time
dberkholz: that'd work pretty good if you don't mind starting a little earlier
should be ok
i'll just have to get to sleep by midnight friday
Ryan52: so, the main C projects ltsp has right now are ... ldm, ltspfs and there's a little utility called jetpipe ... ltspfs is in decent shape... ldm could certainly use some care and feeding
what languages are the other stuff written in?
Ryan52: a bit of python, a fair amount of shell

jammcq: How are you?
jammcq: Are you comming to fisl9?
|13:16||* vagrantc wonders why the pt_BR translation for ltsp is broken|
Guaraldo: yep, I'm definately planning on being there
warren: any objection to my patch for the autologin support? i'm guessing it doesn't really affect you much, since the main issue is that it broke compatibility with previous versions
|13:26||whizzer has left #ltsp|
vagrantc, just go for it
|13:26||* vagrantc was mainly waiting on ogra, since it broke compatibility|
vagrantc, shouldn't we branch for "past stable" with a number and use HEAD for devel, things that WILL break back compat?
vagrantc: saw ur patch wrt autologin - looks good
declare a ldm-VERSIONNUMBER and make it its own branch.
warren: yes. since there hasn't been a real release of ldm yet ...
vagrantc: I have a few more on my list - can I review before spending too much time?
warren: although, really would be better with tags...
vagrantc, wouldn't be too bad with branches
Gadi: a few more patches?
yeah, hacking ldm is next on my list of todos
warren: but tags are more immutable than branches ... someone could come along an muck up a branch.
jammcq: Will you present a talk?
vagrantc, ldm-0.1 branch can maintain compat with the current stuff. Versioned releases from there could be ldm-0.1.Y.
vagrantc, why not use both tags and branches?
warren: maintaining it in two separate places gets us ... ?
warren: or you mean concurrent development branches ...
jammcq: If you want I can put you on invited speakers...
vagrantc, sometimes you want to backport stuff to the ldm-0.1 series
warren: ah, sure. when it comes to that. seeing as we don't have any real releases yet ...
just copy ldm-trunk to ldm-0.1 and then we are unrestricted to do crazy shit in ldm-trunk
ldm-0.1 can be for backports of things that don't break compat
vagrantc, I especially need this because I will be doing compat breaking things in the coming 2 months
warren: i understand what you are saying, however there is no ldm 0.1 release yet.
|13:31||staffencasa has quit IRC|
my list so far includes: 1. not restarting X on failed attempt (but rather return to greeter) 2. add a timeout to the nc call in screen.d/ldm (handles remote servers better) 3. use src/get_ip.c code within greeter for getting IP, so it is not hardcoded to eth0
vagrantc, there doesn't have to be a release to branch it
vagrantc, ldm-0.1 branch is understood to be "changes that don't break compat"
vagrantc, I don't particularly care what happens in that branch personally
vagrantc, I personally will branch ldm-0.2 at some point after I've reached my ldm goals for Fedora 9
warren: i think the topic of releases needs to be discussed... probably best on ltsp-developer
it's already bad enough between ubuntu and debian
warren: I was at Solutions Linux in Paris, this week and bumped into the CEO of Red Hat France. He's looking forward to adding your LTSP port to his portfolio of enterprise solutions.

|13:36||* vagrantc impatiently awaits the mips and mipsel buildd's for ldm builds|
vagrantc: any thoughts on the above?
(while u wait) :)
Gadi: all sounds good to me
Q-FUNK, everyone tells me that, but nobody is giving me resources =)
i have one remaining feature request ... an optional "Guest Login" button. that basically does the same thing as autologin, but gives an opportunity for a specified user to log in.
ah, I know what u mean
i.e. i log in as "vagrant" ... but if someone clicks the "Guest Login" button, it logs them in much like the way autologin works
|13:41||* Gadi nods|
"so may it be written..."
i should also figure out how to have auto/guest logins go to a different server than named logins
and then freegeek can ditch ldm! :)
also, a failed autologin should return to a greeter with the guest login option
but the guest login option should only show a button if the feature is enabled, of course ...
i'll look at the code and see if i can't slip it in easily
the "Guest Login" button feature request is a little more intrusive, i think.
|13:43||* Gadi hopes the whole X restarting thing doesnt require major surgery, as well|
oh, and handling bad passwords better...
warren: after the pep talk I did and showing him how every other distro in the show is going for it, things might change.
|13:44||* Gadi sets /etc/ssh/ssh_config NumberPasswordPrompts 1|
works nicely except all of X restarts if you get it wrong
i've had situations where it doesn't restart, but freezes ...

quick question: with the new upstream branches, what are the steps to making a deb pkg?
Gadi: check out the *-trunk, check out the relevent *-packaging branch as the debian dir
do I need mkdst?
Gadi: oh yeah, if you don't use mkdst ... you'll need to run ./autogen.sh
Gadi: for quick patching, mkdst is maybe overkill
|13:56||Guaraldo has left #ltsp|
hmm... i dont see *-packaging branches
|13:57||* vagrantc knows where the debian ones are|
|13:57||* Gadi must be doing something wrong|
vagrantc, branching ldm-0.1 would be of benefit to me because maybe next week I will be thinking about compat breaking changes.
gotta go for now

stgraber: it is gtk, but it's a good deal over my head at the moment :)

vagrantc: How did you set up the client with you're virtualbox?
Ryan52: i set the server to use two network cards, one using NAT, and one using the internal network ...
Ryan52: and then i connected the thin-client to the internal network
Ryan52: and configured the card with the internal network to do dhcp and such
did you figure out the gtk stuff?
Ryan52: and set it to network boot by default
Ryan52: no, i look at it and my head spins :)
If not I want to do it. (once I get my stuff setup)
I'll do it then.
Ryan52: sounds great :)
Ryan52: i was able to test that my idea for leaving the autologin code where it is can work ...
Ryan52: by splitting the autologin code into a separate if statement, and in the code block where the greeter is handled, setting autologin to True
Ryan52: so just need to figure out how to get the greeter to be able to tell it to set autologin to true
I don't understand what your saying...
to get the "guest login" button working
"vagrantc" pasted "crude autologin test patch" (17 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/434
Ryan52: that patch is against the current ldm-trunk branch

how to enable print on ltsp 5
sickonnet: which linux distro?
sickonnet: so, you have a printer attached to your thin-client and you want to print to it?
it seems port 9100 on that thin client
|22:36||guillaume has joined #ltsp|
is there any configuration i miss?
have you set PRINTER_0_DEVICE=/dev/DEVICENAME where DEVICENAME is the name of your printer device?
yes i try add new lts.conf on /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/
is the chroot apt-get upgrade only broken in edubuntu?
with that setting
guillaume: you also have to run ltsp-update-image after modifying the chroot
that;s why lts.conf was moved outside of the chroot
guillaume: so, how does it break?
but the upgrade whithin the chroot seems to try to update kernels from wich is nonsense
what do you mean?
it's supposed to upgrade whatever is in the chroot
and the chroot is where the kernels are built
well, not built ... installed ... it's where the initramfs image is built
I submitted that earlier today
i got 2 servers here and both do that now
ah, yes. apparently that's a bug that wasn't fixed for gutsy. i fixed it in debian sid a while back.
is there any other options?
for that reason apt-get install is broken too and i cant get git-core installed to install latest amd drivers for my geode lx800
guillaume: to work around it, you just hae to move aside the nbi.img-* files and try to upgrade the chroot again ... maybe an apt-get -f install in the chroot first
btw vagrantc befroe i can chroot to ltsp image then passwd (for debug check ltsp client)
sickonnet: sorry, i'm not very familiar with printer support ... that's about all i know
right now using this version i can't
sickonnet: SCREEN_XX=shell, where XX is an unused tty
when you say move aside , will a rm do the trick?
guillaume: rm or mv should work great
guillaume: but i usually say move aside, i.e. mv ... so that you can revert if something goes terribly wrong
bah i reinstalled from scrached 4 times today
its a dev server
i never like to give advice that puts people in a worse position than they started :)
sorry for my english im very tired here
do i only have to delete the ones in the chroot?
guillaume: yes, you only need to delete the ones in /opt/ltsp/*/boot/nbd-*
i knew again the point
jetpipe is DIED
thx for ur advice for SCREEN
guillaume: i added a couple comments to the bug report... basically the same things i told you
did you meen nbi.img
guillaume: yes, nbi.img ... sorry :)
guillaume: Error: "pastebin" is not a valid command.
hmmm i get the same error so no need for a new pastebin

|23:33||Egyptian[Home] has joined #ltsp|
Ryan52: because of the state of linux-latest-2.6 in sid, ltsp-build-client fails unless you tell it to use a specific kernel, or also give it mirrors pointing to lenny
ya, I figured that out.
I almost have a working ltsp setup.
I just need to figure out why it can't start a window manager...
Ryan52: you have a window manager installed on the server?
originally it was ccomplaining that there was no .Xsession file, so I made it. Now it just restarts X.
Ryan52: does /etc/X11/Xsession exist? is it executable?
Ryan52: do you have ltsp-server-standalone installed, or jsut ltsp-server?
Ryan52: regarding hardware specs... i regularly use virtualbox on my 866MHz with 512MB of ram.
Ryan52: i run my server with 160-256MB of ram, and the thin-client with 64MB ... typically lower the videoram to 1-2MB
clearly, a little more would help, but this is certainly useable.
Guil-T: did you want something?
