<peanutbutterandc>
alkisg, Hey there! Just pinging to let you know that you were right on all counts. I remade that image from scratch. Had everything go into a single partition and didn't use any encryption and it worked. I managed to get through the entire installation process as documented here: https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/
15:28
<alkisg>
Great :)
15:28
<peanutbutterandc>
I still have a few.... confusions
15:29
I tried to boot a client VM off of the network.... and it just stopped saying "no such file found". Now, I have done net-boots before... and... I couldn't `echo ${filename}` from ipxe shell.....
15:29
what should I be doing after the installation anyways?
15:30
<alkisg>
Nothing, if you run the installation steps, then the clients boot
15:30
<peanutbutterandc>
Please excuse me, as this is my first time playing around with ltsp so I have no idea what to expect.
15:30
<alkisg>
If you skipped e.g. ltsp nfs or ltsp initrd, they won't boot
15:30
<peanutbutterandc>
I haven't skipped any of them....
15:30
so... they're supposed to pxe boot, right?
15:30
<alkisg>
Yesx
15:30
<peanutbutterandc>
ipxe is supposed to load....
15:30
<alkisg>
What do you mean you couldn't echo filename?
15:30
<peanutbutterandc>
just a second please
15:31
<alkisg>
You tried it and it didn't echo anything, or you didn't get an ipxe shell, or what?
15:31
<peanutbutterandc>
i'll sshare a screenshot
15:31
i got an ipxe shell
15:31
it didn't echo anything
15:33
alkisg, I get this: https://imgur.com/a/ebKMOGO
15:33
and then in the ipxe shell I don't get an echo for ${filename}
15:34
<alkisg>
peanutbutterandc: run this on the ltsp server: ls -ls /srv/tftp | nc termbin.com 9999
15:34
This will tell us your tftp contents
15:34
ls -lR, sorry
15:36
<peanutbutterandc>
http://termbin.com/xws1z
15:36
There
15:36
<alkisg>
That seems right
15:36
Is the client in bridged mode?
15:36
<peanutbutterandc>
Yes, sir
15:36
<alkisg>
Can I see over VNC, to speed things up?
15:36
!vnc-dide
15:36
<ltspbot>
vnc-dide: To share your screen with me, run this: sudo apt-get --yes install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr - this is a reverse connection, it doesn't need port forwarding etc.
15:36
<peanutbutterandc>
most certainly!

15:38
<alkisg>
peanutbutterandc: boot the client
15:39
<peanutbutterandc>
just a moment please
15:39
did that
15:39
<alkisg>
The server didn't realize the client does a dhcp request
15:39
<peanutbutterandc>
ah i see... no DHCP requess made
15:39
<alkisg>
There should be a message in the logs there
15:39
<peanutbutterandc>
*requests
15:39
true
15:39
<alkisg>
So,it's not in the same "network"
15:39
<peanutbutterandc>
it's a joy to see a master at work, btw
15:39
<alkisg>
:)
15:40
<peanutbutterandc>
it was. but let me check again just to be sure, again
15:40
.........and.....................
15:40
i'm an idiot
15:40
sorry
15:40
sorry to bother you. I got confused
15:40
<alkisg>
np, there are many things in netbooting that can go wrong, and people are mislead some times
15:40
no worries
15:40
Close vnc if you don't need me anymore
15:41
<peanutbutterandc>
thank you very much. let me fix that up and try rebooting it.
15:41
certainly
15:41
i might ask a few questions here though
15:41
<alkisg>
Sure, if I'm not around, try pinging me again with "alkisg"
15:41
<peanutbutterandc>
you sure do debug fast. you seem to have a grasp of what things might be wrong. and that is great.
15:42
wish i could have my screenrecorder ready though. next time perhaps
15:42
<alkisg>
You can run `script` to record a session; I just use `history` though...
15:43
<peanutbutterandc>
again, there goes a veteran again. always preferring the efficient route.
15:43
script, it should be then
15:44
I've got netboot servers running. but they are all just to install an OS. never to run it. ltsp is my first taste of disk-less booting and all.... so i'm quite excited!

15:52
<peanutbutterandc>
alkisg, sorry to bother you again... but it appears that the server is still not getting any DHCP requests from the client. vnc is running and waiting for you. please do create a script file (with timings too)
15:54
<alkisg>
peanutbutterandc: `ltsp dnsmasq` is needed after you change subnets
15:54
It should be OK now
15:54
<peanutbutterandc>
oooh.... I see
15:54
thanks it seems to work!
15:54
<alkisg>
Ctrl+C, then Ctrl+D to stop script
15:54
<peanutbutterandc>
neat!
15:55
<alkisg>
peanutbutterandc: there's a "replay" option, check `man script`
15:55
<peanutbutterandc>
I will. Thank you very much!
15:55
<alkisg>
np
15:55
<peanutbutterandc>
I will explore the client first! this is my first ltsp boot!
