<woernie_>

15:16
<alkisg>
woernie_: https://ltsp.org/man/ltsp.conf/ => CUPS_SERVER
15:49
<woernie_>
is it possible to have both localhost & ltsp as cupsserver? now i only see the local usb printers
15:51
<alkisg>
woernie_: no, only one cups server can be active. Otherwise, you'd need to forward the local printer to the server using p910nd, and then use just the server cups
15:52
Or, you could publish the server printers to the local network, so that the client will autodetect them
15:52
And at that case, you'd use only the local CUPS
15:53
<woernie_>
thanks

Hello
16:50
i have a very silly question but in the case of a vm image used for clients, virtualbox must be installed on the server?
16:50
I ask this because my server is already running on virtualbox so it will force me to install a vm in a vm, can it work?
16:58GodFather has joined IRC (GodFather!~rcc@wsip-66-210-242-210.ph.ph.cox.net)
17:02
<alkisg>
sfrank: you can maintain the image in any way you want, no, virtualbox isn't necessary
17:02
E.g. you may boot it in your hypervisor when you want to maintain it
17:03
It can also reside on the hypervisor itself, and be mounted in /srv/ltsp/x86_64.img via nfs or sshfs
17:08
<sfrank>
I'm not sure I expressed myself well or understood
17:09
<alkisg>
What's your hypervisor, proxmox?
17:09
*sorry, windows?
17:09
Where are you running the "base" virtualbox?
17:10
<sfrank>
my ltsp is installed on a virtualbox vm running on windows 10
17:11
<alkisg>
OK. Let's take it slowly because I guess I wrote too much info in two sentences
17:11
First, are you sure you don't want to use the chrootless method?
17:20
<sfrank>
no pb
17:22
yes the final objective is to use raspberries as a client but also can be old pc
17:22
<alkisg>
Then chrootless is the best method
17:22
How old, are they going to be pentium 4's ?
17:22
32bit cpus?
17:23
<sfrank>
yes crhootless is ok for me but impossible for raspb
17:24
32 bits and 64 bit are ok on chrootless
17:24
<alkisg>
You need these two pages: (1) https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/ => chrootless, and (2) https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/raspios/
17:24
So, chrootless. I just tried it again today with an rpi3 computer lab.
17:25
The chrootless image will be used for PCs, and the raspios chroot for raspberries
17:25
<sfrank>
chrootless run for raspberries ?
17:25
<alkisg>
A chrootless server can also have chroots
17:25
If you follow these pages, you'll have TWO images
17:25
One chrootless for PCs, and one chroot for raspberries
17:25
I don't know how else to say it
17:25
<sfrank>
sorry for my bad english, it's a shame
17:26
<alkisg>
No worries, but note that I understood what you want, so go ahead and follow the advice, it's correct
17:27
<sfrank>
oh yes i undertood this, your documentation it's good for me for the moment
17:28
but I wanted to test with an image on vm
17:28
<alkisg>
Why?
17:28
Is it part of your assignment?
17:28
<sfrank>
no just for testing
17:28
<alkisg>
Your chrootless linux server will be running in virtualbox inside windows; why do you need another vm?
17:29
I think you should start with the easiest stuff before you try the harder ones
17:30
<sfrank>
ok ! :)
17:31
I will try to mount a chroot for the raspberry then
17:33
I told myself that the images on vm would be easier to maintain
17:33
<alkisg>
sfrank: the image will be in a vm
17:33
You will only have one vm, and it will be your image

<alkisg>
While raspberries are maintained by booting a client
17:33
NOT in a vm; because virtualbox can't boot raspberry pi os
17:33
Virtualbox isn't ARM architecture, it's x86
17:33
<sfrank>
yes i know
17:34
<alkisg>
Read the pages, you'll understand
17:36
<sfrank>
thank you for your answer
17:36
<alkisg>
np
17:36
<sfrank>
have a good day
17:36
<alkisg>
You too
17:36
<sfrank>
see you later
