=== Kamping_Kaiser has to get that 'dual boot using ltsp' thing happening
Sleepy_CoderActually, it just installed it that way...:<  I made the partitions, installed Windows on one, then installed Ubuntu and it set up my menu.lst.04:33
Sleepy_CoderI just modified it to look pretty. :p04:33

Sleepy_CoderIt's in /boot/grub/menu.lst04:34
Kamping_Kaiseri thought it was pxelinux.conf/*04:34

ubotupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)04:41
Sleepy_CoderOh, zeyr we go. :D04:41
Sleepy_CoderHere we go:  http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/18752/04:42
Sleepy_CoderI only pasted the lines that were relevant.04:42
Sleepy_CoderYou can sort of see how the syntax works.  I think every "title" must have a "root" underneath or else grub will just ignore what's in the "title" and it won't show.04:43
Sleepy_CoderUmm...don't copy and paste that into your menu.lst if anyone cares....it'd be kind of bad since you guys don't have my configuration on the MBR. :p04:44

cliebow yes12:34
cliebowcrazy_bus, sure..i have found one laptop cranaky enough it wouldnt12:35
mattfletcherclie, was that yes to me?12:44
mattfletcheri've looked in /etc/skel/ on an ubuntu 7.04 server (the only machine i have handy) and it's empty. where can i predefine things like desktop backgrounds and themes for new users?12:51
cliebow no dot files?01:12
cliebowif you want special settings for openoffice for instance..use an account to create the perfect .openoffice2.org file and drop it un /etc/skel01:13

cliebowSiCk--, most of the wizaeds are enroute to spain..01:37
mattfletcherit's specifically the theme and background i will want to set, where are they stored? there are only a couple of files like .bashrc in /etc/skel/, no big directories of stuff01:38
mattfletcherah, is that why the meeting is silent?01:38
cliebowi dont know exactly where they are..01:38
mattfletcheri'll try #ubuntu01:40
cliebowbut you can experiment with all thos e.g* files...take two users..get just what you want with one user..then drop the .files into second users folder..chown to the new user..see what happens..(and let me know what you find 8`)01:40

mattfletcherhello from my new edubuntu installation!09:43
HedgeMagehi mattfletcher09:44
mattfletcheri'm wondering now how to use ltsp - i tell my laptop to boot from "network" but it just shows me my normal grub09:44
HedgeMagemattfletcher: sorry, I've not worked with ltsp09:46
mattfletcherno worries, i'll wait till after the weekend09:46
mattfletcherbut just to say - it looks stunning! i've just turned compiz on and woo! i just need to remember to turn it off once i have 10 thin clients connecting to it09:48
cliebow_mattfletcher:is dhcp running?09:48
mattfletcherhi cliebow, not on this machine - we also have a smoothwall which is providing that. does dhcp tell the tc's where to boot from?09:49
mattfletchercan i make smoothwall's dhcp do it?09:50
cliebow_there is a smopothwall mod which will let smoothwall pass the right info09:50
mattfletcheru don't have a link do u?09:50
mattfletcheror a keyword to look for?09:50
cliebow_that mod also includes an arp table shown within dhcp09:50
cliebow_lemme look..it was some work to do but i should have a copy down in Surry09:51

mattfletcherif i remove the smoothwall, put dhcp back on and run the edubuntu server straight into the adsl router should that work? i only have 1 nic09:52
cliebow_mattfletcher, just shut off dhcp on the sm,oothwall and let you linux box do it 8~)09:56
mattfletcheri can't, it loses net access when i do that. i don't know how to configure the dhcp with the correct gateway etc09:58
cliebow_what is address of the smoothwall10:02
mattfletcher192.168.0.10 (internal side)10:03
cliebow_that is your gateway address on the inside..you smoothwall is set to get info from dhcp for external interface?10:04
cliebow_ltsp direct to theinternet is not good10:04
mattfletcheri think the smoothwall is statically configured with the ip of the router and the remote dns servers. it's been that long tho that i'm not sure10:04
cliebow_here is the little piece to add a place for pxe info in smoothwall..10:06
cliebow_so network is adslrouter--->smoothwall-->ltspbox10:07
cliebow_i have to fly for home..ill look you up by and by10:07
