Hi. I'm installing LTSP using the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS alternate install method. Does anyone know if I need any additional pacakges to have pulseaudio start working?
Also, can I chroot to the /var/lib/tftpboot and do an adduser to gain access to the local terminal to see how it is doing on a vt?
you can do so, but doing the chroot into /opt/ltsp/i386/ or wherever Ubuntu places the LTSP root tree (I doubt it does in /var/lib/tftpboot)
/opt/ltsp/i386 is the correct place. Thank you.

It is complaining about "Your account has expired...PAM authentication failed"
It appears that I can su to the new user, so I'm going to pretend I didn't see the error :) Do I need to ltsp-update-image after each of these type of changes (because my system uses nbd)?

Does sound just work if the right driver can be found for the client machine?
If I had an evil sound card, like the ESS audiodrive, would audio default back to coming though the server's sound card?

Hi, does anyone have experience enabling sound on PC based thin clients? I have a lot of different machines to pick from (some good old ISA SB16's in the lot) and I was wondering if anyone might be willing to share some tips on how to get them going.
I'd really like to get some minor multimedia going so I can have my kids use thin clients.
Otherwise these PII-400's are going to have to go.
SB16? Hmmm that would be really good for freedos & http://www.abandonia.com for the kids :P
I've done this for one of mine, but with an opti - no sound for all games :D
sound usually work with PCI sound cards, for ISA you'll probably need to modprobe the right module manually, you can use a screen-session.d script for that if you're using a recent LTSP (Jaunty's or Intrepid's with my PPA)
screen-session.d script? Do I need to add that to lts.conf or is that something I can start from within a session?
Can I change the root password if I chroot to /opt and then passwd?
you can do so, but doing the chroot into /opt/ltsp/i386/
mmmhhhh... I think it was you who asked the same question half an hour ago...
|14:33||sepski has quit IRC|
NeonLicht -- Yes, thank you again -- It worked for adding a user.
ah, ok, it wasn't exactly the same question, but since my answer was about the same I though the question was also the same, hahaha
screen-session.d scripts are scripts executed right before X is started on the thin client, you can find some in /usr/share/ltsp/screen-session.d in the thin client chroot (if you're using a recent ltsp)
Does the current ltsp look in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf or /opt/ltsp/i386/lts.conf ?
anyone know how to change kiwi logo on opensuse kiwi-ltsp ldm screen
i am going to accept the defaults for the aptitude?
or did you do something to munge interactivity?

Can I use ltsp wih the same user on many clients?
Basically, I want to use a single "student" account on 30 different machines at the same time.
How would you do it?
do what? use separate users. what are you trying to accomplish?
you might want to use the guest login.
Currently, they use a horrible system too horrible to mention here. I want to replace it and make it a lot easier to manage, but having to manage 30 users indiviudally is hard for a normal teacher.
To be honest, its too much of a hassle, even then. All I want is an account that looks the same everywhere and that provides new students who login with a new clean interface that will be reset on every login.
|19:04||synchris_odium is now known as synchris|
Can this be accomplished by forcing guest login for every thin client?
not the automatic reset.
Will kiosk mode accomplish my goals?
|19:08||* Ryan52 doesn't know what that is..|
maybe the ltsp cluster account manager thing can.
That thing soudns very promising
Never mind that, I just checked it out and it's kind of immature.
It looks like I need a custom solution, what a shame.
I might as well create my own distribution for this.
I checked out Edubuntu, Skolelinux, K12Linux and some very small attempts and so far none of those seems to get it right, or maybe I'm just twisted in my demands.
Svenstaro: what don't they "get right"?
Edubuntu is very, very scattered and inconsistent on the documentation side but it offers the most options in my use case. The others imply that you are using a per-student user which is too much administrative overhead in my case.
edubuntu doesn't imply that?
you can have a per-student user or a per-workstation user...and they all have support for both of those.
Err well Edubuntu implies that I use one account per workstation at least.
Would you recommend per workstation use?
then you can also use guest login.
(which does basically that..)
you still have to set up the users yourself, tho.
The idea was this: If a new computer gets added or another gets replaced, no administration is required to make the machine work. As it stands now, I need to assign the MAC address after it is added.
why mac address?
For autologin to work, the machine needs to know which user auto-logins on which workstation.
And it is based on their MAC addresses.
or it'll fall back to the hostname.
so...set up dhcp.
if you have 50 computers, set up 255 users/dhcp ip addresses.
How does a new workstation know its own hostname?
Oh I see.
Didn't think about user per IP.
add a script to set it based on the ip address.
(it == the hostname)
Even then, how do I automatically restore the users' default desktop and settings?
nightly cron job?
Okay, I can override all the directories all the time, but there has to be a more elegant..
Basically, I want to make the user directories behave exactly like the system were a LiveCD
Mh.. A user logout script?
actually, that might be easy to do.
But what if the student just "shuts down" the PC? What would happen?
what do you mean by shut down? ie, unplug?
tell them not to do that :)
For example, yes. I have to account for such scenarios.
do it on login then?
it'll make things slower, but then you know for sure that it's clean.
Now thats a good idea.
This solves most problems.
So I have: [x] fat clients, [x] clean user dirs, [x] user-per-workstation
Now I only need to make the tftpd thing work using an alternative dhcp server
Edubuntu documentation is an utter headache :(

i would like to know if i can have two ltsp servers on the same network
what are you intending on doing?
load balancing? or choosing between them?
(both of which are possible)
thanks for answering Ryan52. i am asked to boot users on one server or another depending on which user it is
one server will belong to one company and the other to another company
"which user it is"
do you mean which workstation they're sitting at?
or do you mean what they enter into the login box?
again, both are possible. (maybe)
it doesn't depend on the workstation because a person may have two usernames to enter one server or the other
well, you can have multiple servers that they choose from.
each username would belong to one server
i was asked not to do that
but you can't say "if they are bob, they go on server1. if they are sally, they go on server2."
that's what they're asking me...can it be done?
can one server be the one to make the decision?
that what you say is exactly what they need
give me a second to look at the code before I answer..
I'm pretty certain that it's not possible.
so you want to be able to have a file somewhere that says Ryan52 gets logged into this server, Quiliro gets logged into this server, and they never know the difference?
