hope someone can help me with a dhcp offer issue. When booting clients up one at a time....I can get a a system to PXE boot, and the next system does not receive an offer.....but after waiting 3 mins..and rebooting...it does..in other words the offers are very slow..any ideas?
|04:18||Q-FUNK has joined #ltsp|

sep: which logs did you need the /var/log/syslog stuff?
ltspadmin, if you dont see errors there i dont need it. you might consider increasing verbosity to get more output. you can also consider running tcpdump on the dhcp server to see what happen when the clients request a lease. and make sure you have free leases
okay in the logs..what are we specifically looking for..then id be happy to post up
and also what is the dhcp lease suppose to be set to
|04:57||tux_440volt has quit IRC|

I'm writing an article today on LinuxJournal.com about LTSP 5. Are there any specifics any of you might want me to mention?
Shawn_Powers, http://en.opensuse.org/Easy-LTSP GUI project for LTSP, part of openSUSE Google Summer of Code 2008 :)
Shawn_Powers, you might also know Fedora9, AltLinux, openSUSE-Edu, Debian and Ubuntu all have LTSP5 integrated
wow, the gui looks great...
I've been an LTSP administrator for a long time, and have just been editing the lts.conf file
I remember wishing there was a gui a long time back
Shawn_Powers, they are dummies, the actual one would be something that ogra's mom can use ;)
http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Easy-LTSP here is the development white board
I just started preparing for my summer upgrade to LTSP5 (probably with Ubuntu), and I was excited to see some great enhancements
student would start coding at the end of this month
very very awesome.
by september we should have something usable by everyone
I'm curious about "ldm" -- is this an LTSP thing, or an Ubuntu thing?
And is it difficult to tweak?
ie, if I want to force my users to use IceWM or some such thing?
(I haven't used LTSP in anything other than K12LTSP, so my understanding is a bit narrow)
LDM is a ltsp display manager, nothing there to tweak, it offers login screen with options of locales and desktop sessions to log in
I guess by "tweak" I meant can you specify sessions, or do they pull the info from the distro?
LDM provides X over ssh
it pulls all available sessions and languages automatically from the server
That's always been a pain in my side. ;)
(not LTSP's fault of course)
i advise you to give it a try before writing, a lot has changed since ltsp4.2 days, in fact it is a whole new approach to ltsp
Well, it's not an article for the print magazine, but the website. And I intend for it to be a "first impressions" type thing.
I played with the Edubuntu version yesterday, and really liked what I experienced.
Especially with multimedia
LTSP5 implementation on openSUSE won FOSS India award 2008 http://en.opensuse.org/LTSP
Shawn_Powers, cool, we can do with all the attention the project can get
Well, if it turns out well, be sure to Digg the thing as well
upstream needs more distribution contributing and integrating LTSP5 in their distros
Also needs some folks to document
sure link it here and post of ltsp-discuss mailing list
(says the professional writer that doesn't contribute any code... sigh)
code is not the only contribution, blogging, writing, making people aware of it is a big contribution too
:) I'll also mention this IRC channel too -- would this be the "proper" place to send people with more questions?

I'm looking for some help specifying refresh rate for my 1440x900 terminals
|08:28||Guaraldo has joined #ltsp|
If I specify 1440x900 for X_MODE_0, everything works great except for a flicker when I move the mouse. Changing the refresh rate from '60 Hz' to '75 Hz' in Preferences->Screen Resolution solves the problem. Unfortunately, this is a per-user fix instead of a machine-dependent fix. How can I accomplish the same thing from lts.conf ?

hello all. I have a quick question. Getting ready to set up an ubuntu ltsp server. I have 900 GB of space on 3 drives. In the partition schem where should I allocate most of the HD space? /home? /root?
|09:17||tux_440volt is now known as Subhodip|
cjsstables: Definitely /home - Consider that each of your users' entire environments will be now aggregated under one /home partition.
and by environments I mean their files, pictures, videos, etc

hello. Im fighting with an 8.04 setup....I have two nics..and one has been set to a 192.168.1..254 the other to dhcp. I even set the /etc/default/dhcp-server3 LISTEN to the proper interface. Here is the issue - when clients boot..it takes 2 -3 minutes to receive any kind of bootp/dhcp info. however, after 3 mins after loading each system...the next one will come up. Can some one help me debug/fix the issue?
woops that 192.168.1.254
|11:03||gentgeen__ has joined #ltsp|
I just rebooted 4 machines..they come up fine. then aster the fifth...things hang again...weird...
ltspadmin: DHCP in 8.04 is configured in /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf - that's what you're fiddling with, right?
And the _clients_ have two NICs in them?
two nics on server...and one nic per client
|11:05||D_Eagle has joined #ltsp|
i know its a config mistake of some sort...but im pulling my hair out thinking about what it is.
So the client boots, DHCPREQUESTs an IP and then, on the screen you just see the little spinnyspinny ?
|11:06||mistik1_ has joined #ltsp|
What's in /var/log/messages on the server during this transaction? How much time between the REQUEST, ACK and OFFER?

|11:06||mistik1_ is now known as mistik1|
Blinny: what will happen is it "tries" to request for dhcp and times out...doesnt even make that far
Blinny: and if i wait..2 or 3 mins...bamn its back again.
And /var/log/messages ?
id be happy to give you snippet in pastebin..will that suffice?
Yes, the parts during a failed boot and a successful boot are what I'm after.
Blinny: here you are - http://paste.ubuntu.com/12250/

I've been using my ssh DSA key to get into launchpad
|11:12||Pascal_1 has quit IRC|
so even I can't escape needing to regenerate the key
ltspadmin: It looks like your server is still booting during the request process. Has the server finished booting?
Or is that 192.168.1.250 stuff from specifying the log server?
that is actually capturing the log info from the clients...192.168.1.250 is one of the clients.
I find it strange that it is exactly five seconds between every log message - one from the client, one from the server.
I'll brb - gotta make a quick trip downstairs.

|11:25||vagrantc has quit IRC|
ltspadmin: What happens if you remove the log-servers option?
from /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf, restart dhcp-server and then reboot the client
ltspadmin: When you're done please pastebin your dhcpd.conf - and verify that you absolutely have no other dhcp servers on this switch/subnet
Blinny: that is a brilliant idea as well..i will actually connect a second laptop and see if there is any type of dhcp server on the network--that somehow magically appeared..
Blinny: Ill post that dhcpd.conf up now.
there you are
Right on. You also don't need the 'allow booting' and 'allow bootp' for ltsp.
And, unless you're sending some NFS or kernel options that I don't see you don't need the option 128 and 129.

Pawn_Showers, nice write, you didnt mention debian edu / skolelinux, but that's ok it's practicaly a part of debian anyway
Pawn_Showers: one thing i love about LTSP 5 is the plugin-based build system. i've added a custom plugin to create diskless fat clients - it was very easy and works well.
laga did you put it on the wiki ?
sepski: there is a plugin for (low)-fat clients on the wiki. my plugin ships with the ubuntu package because it's ubuntu specific.
it'll actually build a diskless mythtv frontend
If you have anything you'd like highlighted -- please, drop a comment. My artitcles have gotten lots of comment traffic lately...
