Hello! I am wondering how the /etc/X11/xorg.conf is generated in the LTSP client. I notice that /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, so it must be generated on the fly. But where does it do that? I'm using Edubuntu with LTSP 5. Many thanks!
it does it on boot

foka: X doesn't need a config file.
ltsp might still do something, though...
yes, it does
so you can handle serial devices and whatnot
stuff that can't be detected
we don't support that in gentoo tho
debian/ubuntu do tho
not sure how it's going to change with the hal stuff tho
Hi! Thanks for the response. I see that LTSP 5 would automatically generate a /etc/X11/xorg.conf based on the detected monitor/display card setting, so it is great. However, I want to tweak it because a monitor here is not returning the proper HorizSync/VertRefresh values, turning a 1024x768 monitor into a 640x480 one...
there is a parameter for that
or you could just test
johnny, Is it X_CONF or something like that?
let xorg try..
the default in debian/ubuntu is to build your own xorg.conf based on settings.. but if you set CONFIGURE_X=F
then xorg will try to figure it out
ultimately.. xorg should try to do the figuring out
johnny, Thank you so much! You have led me to the right place! :-)
foka, if that does not work
there are some other lts.conf parameters that would be useful
X_HORIZ or whatever it's called
luckily i've never had to use that with my hardware.. but i know it can be important to override if X cannot detect the proper edid settings
johnny, Thank you so much! You are very helpful indeed. Just exactly the info I need. Thanks! :-)
look at lts-parameters.txt for all the settings
it's in the chroot (in the current hardy version)
in inteprid (and the newest debian stuff) it will be in the server..
i forget where.. but i'm sure you can search for it
johnny, Thank you!
you are welcome
Ryan52, have you ever played with any of the zeroconf support that is entering many common linux apps these days?
rah rah avahi..
avahi has messed up my stuff. I won't install anything related to or depending on it...
that is sad that you had such an experience
see.. i always loved the network browsing for file systems with samba on windows
avahi makes it possible to easily browse for network shares.. and use sftp :)
it makes life much easier
plus.. you you can talk to folks in the same room.. without setting up a server.. with almost all the popular clients
it was awesome..
it's fun to use in a coffeehouse
altho.. sadly.. apple seems to do the wrong thing with that on theirs
the default hostnames used are firstname-lastname-computer
so.. i think it is a bit of a privacy intrusion imo ..
it'll say MacBookPro, iBook, etc
no linux distro defaults to hostname that includes any personally identifying details iirc
|02:32||alkisg has joined #ltsp|
pffft apple is overrated in general :-)
Ryan52, but that doesn't make the functionality uncool tho
Ryan52, cups also supports such discovery as of recently releases..
it meant that my gf just turned on her computer.. and saw my printer and started printing
i see ntp, distcc, and pulseaudio too ..
oh, ya, I use that cups feature on my laptop...
cups also has it's own browsing functionality built in.. so it could have been that
but over zeroconf .. much better
means it works with macs too
and more easily with windows..
not sure if they got it into vista.. but i'm sure apple has an implementation for windows
distcc using zeroconf? that seems like a bad idea. I would not trust any random system on the same network as me to compile my stuff...
sure.. but you would know which ones you setup
or which ones you trust
when you choose to start it
i trust my local LAN

because the tc 5300 has 32MB flash and 56MB RAM and i dont know if it can work
it'll be slow for sure... 128mb should be the minimum
nubae: why the need for 128mb? the X windows need so much ram?

if ure gonna run any apps in xwindows, yeah
can anyone here tell me if debian/ubuntu/gentoo have system GUIDs above 500?
and if gshadow is used in ltsp at all?
|09:49||slidesinger_lt has joined #ltsp|

|09:53||slidesinger_lt has left #ltsp|
ofcourse you can have GUIDS above 500
I know u can have them, but is it common place to find them on those systems
fedora and redhat make all systems users under ID 500
I know ubuntu and debian make it 1000
but I'm asking, is it common to find system user accounts over 500?

i'm using nbd swap but the /tmp dir is geting filled with nbd tmp files about once a week..
what i've seen is that the file is not deleted and remains there even if the thin client is turned off.
how can i resolve that?
|19:32||vagrantc has quit IRC|
|19:34||barbosa has joined #ltsp|
|19:36||cliebow has quit IRC|
maybe this option would do it??
unfortunately, that will also disconnect actively used ones, and crash your thin clients
so the keepalive in the hosts.allow would let the script to remove the swapfile or finish the nbdserver process?
setting the keepalive should cause them to timeout after about 2 hours, in my experience
and then get deleted
ok i'll test that way
ok done.. i'll check later if it worked as expected
