is there a way of checking the current connections of the NBD server?
I'm getting the error: nbd0: unknown partition table
|04:04||migue has joined #ltsp|
|04:07||mikkel has joined #ltsp|
I am right in thinking that if I edit something in /opt/ltsp/i386 I just need to run ltsp-update-image -a i386 in order for the client to be altered on next boot?
rickogden: that "unknown partition table" message is just a warning, ignore it
To check the connections, just run netstat -nap | grep 2000
About ltsp-update-image, yes, you're right
alkisg: remember that sleep command you told me to put into ltsp_nbd?
What about it?
it doesn't seem to be working... I rebuilt the image, added that line and it just seems to ignore it
I changed it to 30, and it doesn't wait for 30 seconds
I asked about ltsp-update-image to make sure what I was doing was correct
But it was working before, right?
which is rather strange
OK. I got some work to do now, if you don't manage to solve it I'll be available in some hours...

Hi I just got a PoE netgear switch and plugged it into my Ltsp server
I now need to configure the switch, but I dont know how to find out its IP address on my system.
The Netgear help says type "SHOW NETWORK" but my terminal window says not installed

I think lts.conf is being ignored :(
I also seem to have a problem with lts.conf not reflecting in the client.
I have set up /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
but if I log on to thin client getltscfg -a shows nothing.
On my test system this works fine.
|06:03||DaGeek_ has joined #ltsp|
Guys, paste your lts.conf and your /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf to pastebin

alkisg: what I've done is I've built a new client from scratch, and added the break=mount parameter to the kernel line in the gpxe boot file
|06:15||DaGeek_ has quit IRC|
alkisg : my dhcpd.conf file http://pastebin.com/KrG9MQJ4
garymc: sorry I meant the other 2 guys with the lts.conf problem
biomorph: can you explain line 24?
That's the wrong path (and it's what is used for lts.conf)
oh right. Anyone know how I can find out the IP addy of my netgear managed PoE switch
|06:20||Selveste1___ has quit IRC|
alkisg: No I can't - I didn't set it up. Do you mean the line ## & -
That one usually reads filename "ltsp/i386/nbi.img";
when I try to connect using the command: nbd-client ip 2000 /dev/nbd0 I just get the error immediately "Negotiation: Error: Server closed connection"
biomorph: So someone put the extra "boot" there
rickogden: is the nbd server running? netstat -nap | grep 2000 on the server
|06:27||pmatulis has joined #ltsp|
alkisg: it is, it says: tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 14798/inetd
|06:28||rjune has quit IRC|
if I run the the nbd-client command, for a brief period of time it has another line that says
tcp 0 0 184.108.40.206:2000 220.127.116.11:54310 TIME_WAIT -
so it is in some way connecting to it
alkisg: Mmm - interesting. Also on my working system it is the full path - so it starts with /
I'll look into it.
rickogden: open the logs monitor from the system menu, and try it again, and see if you get any new error messages there
alkisg: ah, for some reason it's looking for ltsp/images/amd64.img (which doesn't exist because I only built the i386 client)
do I need to build an amd64 image as well if the server is 64 bit?
rickogden: no, just change your /etc/inetd.conf
alkisg: on the server or chroot?
sudo gedit /etc/inetd.conf and search for amd
alkisg: OK - so I'm trying to understand the filename in dhcpd.conf . Is that relative to /var/lib/tftpboot? If if I have the leading / ?
alkisg: thanks, lets try this again...
biomorph: yes, it's relative, and the leading / doesn't really matter. Also, that particular line in dhcpd.conf is used as the lts.conf dir.
alkisg: excellent! Problem solved! Thanks

how do i add new network drivers to the client image ?
ok, so now it works with the break=mount option, if I remove that and rebuild the image after adding the sleep after the line "ip link set lo up" it just seems to ignore it and fails to connect to nbd server
hmm, lunch is needed, will persevere with this this after :)

I suppose this wouldn't be the right place to ask about making knoppix use swap space provided by nbd in a stable manner?
xcaliber: here's an example usage: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/annotate/head%3A/client/initramfs/scripts/ltsp_nbd
And another one (ltsp has 2 scripts for nbd swapping) at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/annotate/head%3A/client/initscripts/ltsp-init-common
rickogden: to update ltsp_nbd, you need to chroot update-initramfs -u and ltsp-update-kernels. NOT ltsp-update-image.
alkisg: you're my hero! :D
Heh, looking at the logs (link at the topic) might be easier next time ;)
I did have a look through... but couldn't find anything that helped :(

cool. We're preparing for the annual LTSP hackfest. something we call 'LTSP-By-The-Sea'.
say, I was talking to a guy with a 550 computer high school, thinking about ltsp, and it got me to wondering: why doesn't ltsp rule the world?
it's about 50% technical, 50% social
ah, cool; where is it?
maybe you'd like to join us
ah, maine, right; seems like there's been good ltsp conferences there for years.
we usually get 16-18 people
it's a chance to get together face-to-face and hash out some tech stuff
ah, cool. wineconf is in paris this year, november 13th.
and then enjoy some lobster and beer
we do much the same, without the lobster
yeah, wineconf is my main chance to let what few hairs I have left down
nice. I spent a week in Paris a couple years ago. had an amazing time there
that's right, scotty and I headed there right after leaving Minneapolis
yeah, that's right, that was what, 3 years ago now?
i'm not even sure
I think it was 2006
see, it's so long ago that neither of us remembers, and ltsp still doesn't rule the world. bugs me.
I was sure someone was going to make a killing installing meellions of ltsp desktops by now.

the problem is that the same people who want to install ltsp are usually short on cash, thus ltsp. so they won't want to hire anyone unless we make it too hard to install, but we're going the other way =P

|12:19||alexqwesa has joined #ltsp|
bix0r: usually means the user you are running it as is not in the "fuse" group
or does not have perms to execute fusermount
|12:21||LedHed has joined #ltsp|
|12:21||* Gadi waves to jammcq|
Gadi: the user is actually a ldap user, but gets fuse group from groups.conf and is manually added into /etc/groups, So "id USER" shows the user in the fuse group
|12:35||The_Code has quit IRC|
|12:52||nutron has joined #ltsp|
bix0r: sounds like your LDAP fuse group gid does not match your server's fuse group gid
bix0r: on Ubuntu, keeping server groups in LDAP is asking for trouble
bix0r: you should instead either add the ldap users to the local system group OR setuid the fusermount executable and change perms on /dev/fuse (in udev) to 666

Gadi: does the user have to have the fuse group as primary group ? I think I remember something regarding that ...
|13:25||nutron has joined #ltsp|
but the gid for your ldap group must be the same as the local system group
doing it the way you are doing it
Gadi: I actually don't use the ldap groups, just changed /etc/security/group.conf, so that all users will get fuse and other groups
Gadi: I think this could work: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LocaldevCommonGroupWorkaround

I think the problem where the floppies/cds were showing in all desktops when the users had the same common primary group was fixed some time ago...
So I don't think that page applies to recent ltsp versions

alkisg: yeah, you are right. It just fixes that problem

Hey Gang - I've setup my ltsp server to use firefox as a localapp. It works fine, but I can't print to the printer directly. The printer is available for non-localapps like openoffice. Is there a way to make this work?
Cool - I hadn't seen that.
not sure if you need to install all of cups in the chroot, but it sure won't hurt
you should only need cups-client and cups-bsd
or some such
heck, you may even want to just try doing the last step first
maybe stgraber took care of the chroot for you
Fantastic - I'll give this a shot. In a way, not being to print from the web is attractive to me. if the students really want something useful, they could copy it to an openoffice doc and print from there. That said, folks like to print from the web anyway, so this will help.
