mnemoc: you can make a screen script that doesn't start X and instead just launches dosemu
But it might be more efficient to just serve a real DOS image with PXE :)

how do I run nvidia-xconfig from ubuntu fatclient?
07:47NeonLicht has joined #ltsp
must be run as a root
08:27shawnp0wers has joined #ltsp
hahlo: why would you run it?
To create a xorg.conf? It wouldn't be saved, the fat client disk is read-only
(I mean it wouldn't persist across boots)

alkisg: hi, at school things seem to run smootly, except some "minor" issues, like sometime the user gets abruptly disconnected (black screen and then login), or LibreOffice crashes, but a zombie process prevents it to restart

anyone ever used openmeeting?
i'm going to play around with it a little. it would be helpful in our meetings.
but i obviously use ltsp in our setup.. so i wonder if someone here has used openmeeting and has any tips
i'm also asking in #moodle
also, has anyone played around with that gtkwiiwhiteboard with ltsp?
i should just try these things out instead of trying to talk about it.

Does thin clients automatically choose the right architecture when booting? or does ltsp maintain only one client so it defaults to the last ltsp-build-client i execute?
It doesn't
You can have multiple images, but the current pxe "menu" (i.e. there's no menu) only supports one
So you can provide a pxe menu yourself, or send different images based on the client mac address
Or you can use the latest pxelinux which has support for detecting the client arch
How to use the 2nd option -- send images based on client mac address --- does this goes to lts.conf?
No, that's before ltsp is involved
You can do that with dhcpd.conf or with pxelinux.cfg/01-mac-address configuration files
I.e. for dhcpd.conf, you'd need to send a different boot "filename" option depending on the client mac
If the client is i386, send boot filename=/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0. If it's amd64, send filename=/ltsp/amd64/pxelinux.0
What architectures are your clients?
i386 and amd64
Why would you need 2 different architectures?
i386 will do for both of them
no I don't --
I have a 64bit server....
You can create 1 single i386 chroot
Even if your server is 64bit, it doens't matter
which build the amd64 because I didn't place the option --arch i386 when I did the ltsp-build-client command
sudo rm -rf /opt/ltsp; sudo ltsp-build-client --arch i386
now you tell me :) -- thanks -- but I'll note the choosing arch though, might come in handy later
