try it, Thanks!

troubleshooting boot problems

I'm having boot problems with LTSP 5 on some old thin clients.  Is there a procedure written down, or a log file
at least, that I should start with for troubleshooting?

I'm using Debian Etch and the etch-ltsp-backports packages.

Nautilus processes gone wild

We have activated gnome-watchdog on our edubuntu 7.10 thin client
server because of many zombied nautilus processes hogging memory and
processor after user logout. It seems to work very well.

We have also noticed that nautilus had been upgraded last week.  Is
the new nautilus working better? Any news on why we get this error or
if there is a better fix than gnome-watchdog?

Tried it. On one machine, I logged in as root
but got the same error. On two other machines,
I could not mount nfs as root because of timeout
errors (although I could mount nfs using sudo -
any ideas here?). On one of those machines,
I mounted with sudo, logged in as root and
executed the pivot_root sequence. Same error
as before (Permission denied) at the exec chroot.

ltsp 4.2 downloadable install image

Over the course of the past few years, I have probably downloaded the ltsp 4.2
packages at least a few of dozen times when setting up various servers.  This
seems rather inefficient to me, but the latest version of the downloadable iso
seems to be 4.2u2 which appears to be more out-of-date.

Having set up another machine last week (this one, in fact -- it replaces one
that literally went "bang" on the previous Friday), and as I'll probably be
setting up yet another one during the course of this week, I am once again
thinking that it would be ever so much more efficient to have a copy of the
ltsp 4.2 install on my fileserver so I could just pull it from there.

I still use 4.2 because all of my servers are either Centos or Fedora.

Re: ltsp 4.2 downloadable install image

Frank,

download the files and put them on a local webserver, then run ltspadmin 
and tell it to pull the files from your local webserver, rather than the 
official repository.

That's all there is to it?

Gosh, thanks!  I wish I had known that a while ago.  Perhaps that would be a
good bit of information to put on the ltsp website.

Is there a way to do the installation from a NFS fileserver or maybe even FTP,
as well as over http for occasions such as this?  Not that it's a really big
issue -- I can always copy this stuff over to my webserver,  but all of my other
"install images" live on my fileserver.

Re: ltsp 4.2 downloadable install image

Frank,

Yes, you can use 'file:///' instead of 'http://' as the location for the 
files.  Notice there are 3 slashes.

As for ftp, I think ltspadmin would support it, but I'm not sure how to 
specify the username/password.  maybe anonymous would work.

pam_mount problem

The installation :
3 machines
   1 ldap server where all the users are stored
   1 samba server where all the users got their personnal (samba share)
   1 server LTSP debian etch

it works :
when a ldap user connect to the server (directly) with gdm
pam_mkhomedir.so create his home directory
pam_mount.so mount his personnal samba directory inside it
when this user disconnect
pam_mount.so umount correctly his personnal samba directory
everything is logged in /var/log/auth.log

when the same ldap user connect to the server from a thin client
pam_mkhomedir.so create his home directory
pam_mount.so mount his personnal samba directory inside it
when this user disconnect
pam_mount.so DOESNT umount correctly his personnal samba directory

everything is logged in /var/log/auth.log
except everything about the disconnection

anybody could help me about this problem ?

thank you by advance

Re: pam_mount problem


Maybe your users are shutting down the clients without disconnection...

Couldn't be?
