LaserJockdo you have limited disk space?12:22
=== sbalneav [n=sbalneav@mail.legalaid.mb.ca] has joined #edubuntu
etankLaserJock: we are thinking of doing a oem install of xubuntu on one machine and then ghosting it to the rest12:22
etankthe drive space on some is a little limited12:23
sbalneavandrupal: ok12:23
sbalneavon your server tab:12:23
etank10G or less i think12:23
LaserJocketank: I was just thinking becuase the Edubuntu Addon CD has XFCE4 on it12:23
sbalneavldap Host/uri = localhost12:23
sbalneavBase DN is dc=example,dc=net12:24
LaserJockso you could do an edubuntu install with xfce412:24
sbalneavon the Details tab:12:24
LaserJockit would also have all the Gnome stuff, hence the disk space question12:24
etankLaserJock: where is this addon cd12:24
sbalneavBindDN is cn=admin,dc=example,dc=net12:24
sbalneavbind password = the password12:24
LaserJocketank: www.edubuntu.org/Download12:24
sbalneavbind type = Simple12:24
sbalneavsearch attribute = cd12:25
andrupalcd or cn?12:25
sbalneavAsk password on first connect should be clicked on12:25
LaserJocketank: Classroom Server Add-on CD12:25
LaserJocketank: it's just a CD with the educational stuff and xfce4 .debs12:26
etankLaserJock: so i can use that cd once i have xubuntu installed ?12:26
etankor use it to do the whole install12:26
LaserJockonce you have *buntu installed12:26
LaserJockyou can add the  CD as a repo source12:27
andrupalOk. so this is what I've been trying...and searching for users with this access level yields nothing...is this normal12:27
LaserJocketank: if you pop the CD into a Ubuntu or Edubuntu install it pops up a little Add/Remove window12:27
sbalneavenable TLS should be off12:27
LaserJocketank: I'm really not sure if the add-on cd would be much better for you, but it does have the apps you want12:28
etankbut it will be handy to have for later12:28
etankLaserJock: thanks for pointing it out12:28
etankand we want to be able to give something that allows the new owner to reinstall all of the apps that we placed on the box12:29
sbalneavandrupal: What happens if you go to browse?12:29
andrupalsame deal...asls for password, then nothing12:29
etankso we can give them the xubuntu cd and the addon one as well and the will satisfy it12:29
sbalneavSo, in the left hand pane, you see the localhost host, yes?12:31
sbalneavWhat exactly does the pop up box say?12:32
andrupalthe "password required" popup?12:33
LaserJocketank: you should test it out and see how well it works with xubuntu, but I think so12:34

LaserJockdarn, I really must be from Reno, I spelled it kino05:18
LaserJocksorry, keno rather05:19
andrupal_just to make sure I understand the wiring of a client-server pair...1) I have a client connected to the LDAP server via a crossover, is this right?...2) the IP addr of the LDAP server is the default  but I notice this is also the loopback IP address of the client...this seems problematic.  Should I be doing something like assigning an IP to the LDAP server? OR is this normal?05:20
sbalneavOh, man.05:21
sbalneavDude, stop05:21
sbalneavslow it up one sec.05:22
sbalneavFirst, what do you mean,  I have a client connected to the LDAP server via a crossover05:22
andrupal_have a b**r05:23
jsgotangcoLaserJock: diva05:23
sbalneavwhat client, are you trying to set up a thin client workstation?05:23
andrupal_Well, the server has two NICs...one to a router and the other to the thick client.05:23
LaserJockjsgotangco: hmm?05:23
jsgotangcoLaserJock: you're looking for video editing right?05:24
LaserJockyeah, sorry05:24
LaserJockI moved on ;-)05:25
LaserJockI'm going through Open Source Victoria's educational FLOSS catalog05:25
LaserJocklooking at what I can try to push into gutsy05:25
jsgotangcovictoria canada?05:26
LaserJockI don't think so05:26
LaserJockI think it's Australian05:26
sbalneavandrupal_: Your server's going to have 3 ip addresses.05:26
LaserJockBurgundavia would know05:26
sbalneav127.0.0.1, which is the loopback address (think fake IP address that things on the box can use to talk to themselves about)05:27
sbalneavand the two REAL ip addresses that the nics should have.  On different subnets.05:27
andrupal_Once NIC should be static, right?05:27
andrupal_The other DHCP to take an IP from my ISP..05:28
andrupal_OK so using as the IP of the LDAP server is a problem.05:29
sbalneavIs that the address you assigned to the ethernet card?05:30
sbalneavyes, that's a problem.05:30
andrupal_If every linux client uses this IP as it's localhost IP...05:30
andrupal_OK so I'll change that...but where does the config happen to assign the LDAP server to that IP?05:31
sbalneavIt doesn't05:31
sbalneavthe LDAP server will listen for connection attempts on ANY ip interface05:31
sbalneavWhen you have the client AND the server on the same box, you tell the client to connect to
sbalneavthe loopback address.05:32
andrupal_I see...but calling it ldap://localhost in the network doesn't make any sense.  I should assign it the IP of the NIC.05:32
sbalneavit's a "pretend" ip address than you can bind to, so that two programs that communicate via IP can talk to each other via a "network" without generating any traffic on the network.05:33
sbalneavso if your LDAP server has a static address of, lets say05:33
sbalneavyou want ldap://
andrupal_even in the ldap.conf file on the server?05:33
andrupal_or just on the client.05:34
sbalneavno, the ldap.conf file on the SERVER can reference, since it's on the SAME BOX.05:34
andrupal_got it.05:34
andrupal_Thanks again!05:37
andrupal_Wait!  I need to have DCHP running on the server to assign an IP to the client as well...right?05:41
sbalneavThe client's a client with a hard drive?05:45
sbalneavif so, just asign it a static ip address, different than the server, on the same subnet05:46
andrupal_ok...simpler...long term I'll need DHCP to work, not now.05:57
LaserJockok, so I'm looking through a lot of cool content tools for education06:10
LaserJockand I'm wondering why we don't have them06:10

LaserJockogra: I did some cleanup on gcompris06:29
LaserJockand added rasmol and qcad to our ~edubuntu-bugs list06:29
ograthanks !06:30
ograi saw the bug work :)06:30
LaserJockyes, there were a few bugmails06:31
LaserJockmost of it was just triage kind of things06:31
LaserJocknot a lot of closings, unfortunately06:31
=== ogra was busy playing with hal
sbalneavWhat's the page with bugs?06:32
LaserJockI use http://launchpad.net/~edubuntu-bugs/+packagereport06:33
ograLaserJock, yep http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogra/ltspfs-hal-root.png06:33
LaserJocksorry, that URL should be http://launchpad.net/~edubuntu-bugs/+packagebugs06:33
LaserJockogra: interesting06:33
LaserJockso what are you going to do with that?06:34
ograits only the root device yet06:34
ograall ltspfs volumes will regiseter as children06:34
sbalneavLaserJock: ah, sexy.06:35
sbalneavok, I'll start wandering through some of those.06:35
=== ogra wonders when vagrants talk will show up on http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2007/debconf7/low/
LaserJockoh nifty, I'll want to see that. I didn't know he was talking06:36
LaserJockqcad has a lot more bugs than I expected06:36
LaserJockquite a few crashers06:37
ogra"hiking the trail to LTSP 5.0 and the friends we make along the way"06:37
ograbeautiful title06:37
LaserJockogra: ok, I was going to start building some metapackages06:38
LaserJockI wondered how you wanted them done. Do you want to use seed files?06:38
LaserJockor should I just build it "manually"06:38
ograwell, that would require germinate integration06:39
ograi think manually should be fine06:39
LaserJockok, that's a bit easier for me06:39
ograyou could look at the new control.in/control.Debian/control.Ubuntu architecture we have in ltsp and steal that06:40
LaserJocksince the package lists aren't that big06:40
LaserJockah, ok06:40
ograthat just uses a list attached to a variable06:40
ograbut we could make it a line by line list as well, similar to the seeds06:40
LaserJockwell, I'll just see as I go along06:41
LaserJockI just wondered if you wanted it in the edubuntu seeds or not06:41
ograi want the package in the seeds :)06:50
LaserJockthe package yes ;-)06:52
LaserJockalso, I last night I went through the OSV Educational apps .pdf and filled out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/JordanMantha/EdubuntuMIRCandidates06:52
LaserJockthere were some pretty interesting content management apps in the list that we don't have in Ubuntu06:54
LaserJockperhaps it might be a good project for some budding young MOTU Hopefuls to package some up ;-)06:55

LaserJockbdoin: over the weekend I went through all the gcompris bugs in Ubuntu06:59
bdoinhum, your out of luck, I usually stay there too long ;)06:59
LaserJockI wanted to get your input on a few07:00
LaserJockbug #41172 and bug #6736007:01
ubotuLaunchpad bug 41172 in gcompris "XUBUNTU panels in Gcompris" [Medium,Confirmed]  https://launchpad.net/bugs/4117207:01
ubotuLaunchpad bug 67360 in gcompris "GCompris Fullscreen mode causes gnome-session to end with vesa driver" [Medium,Confirmed]  https://launchpad.net/bugs/6736007:01
bdoinWe have completly changed this code, moved from xrandr to xvidmod07:02
bdoinit has perhaps made the bug disappear07:02
bdoinbut, it's not a GCompris bug, it's the vesa driver which is bugged07:03
LaserJockthat's sort of what I wanted to know07:03
LaserJockif I should close the gcompris part of the bug07:03
LaserJockand leave it as a vesa issue07:03
bdoinwhat GCompris release is this bug for ?07:03
LaserJockoh geeze, probably 7.2 or 7.407:04
LaserJockboth bugs are from 200607:04
LaserJockand we've just got 8.X in Feisty07:05
bdoinat 8.2 we changed to xvidmod IIRC07:05

LaserJockbdoin: I'm also interested in what you think of bug #11561107:07
ubotuLaunchpad bug 115611 in gcompris "gcompris messes up screen" [Undecided,Incomplete]  https://launchpad.net/bugs/11561107:07
LaserJockit's kind of a messy bug report07:07
LaserJockbut the part where people end up with a 800x600 viewport after exiting gcompris fullscreen07:08
bdoinit's kind of funny07:08
bdointhere is 2 problems, the 3 screen support (xinerame) and the tuxpaint crash07:09
bdoinI still have complaints that we crashes when tuxpaint is not installed07:10
LaserJockyes, I tried it and it didn't crash, but it just hung07:10
bdoinand when we crashes, we catch it and do our best to set back the screen resolution07:10
bdoinprobably a regular kill (without -9) would have work regarding the screen resolution07:11
LaserJockwell, I wondered if maybe we should just make tuxpaint a dependency07:11
bdoinat least, it's an easy fix but maybe it will hurt edubuntu one cd packaging07:12
LaserJockwell, we already include tuxpaint07:12
bdointhen it's an easy fix07:13
LaserJockbdoin: ok, I've got to run to work07:13
LaserJockwhat's the best way of forwarding bugs onto you? I don't see any bug tracker on the gcompris site07:14
bdoinfor the xinerama, I don't know07:14
bdoinHow-to report a bug07:15
bdoinI agree, it's not easy to find07:15
LaserJockbdoin: doh07:15
LaserJockok, thanks for your help07:15
LaserJockI'll try to forward on as much as I can there07:16

somepersoni use an ltsp server, and everytime a thin client selects hibernate my server seems to hibernate07:23
somepersonis there some way to disable that07:24
bdoinIt makes sense that the server gets the command and there is probably a way to disable this. what desktop are you using ?07:32
stgraberyou can disable it in gconf, but I don't really know what's the way to do the change systemwide07:32
=== bdoin is developing GCompris, I don't know LTSP at all
stgraberit's in : apps/gnome-power-manager/07:33
stgraberyou should have something like can_suspend and can_hibernate07:33

LaserJockgeorgsvl: I don't believe we have such a list09:04
LaserJockespecially since we have no way of tracking users09:04
georgsvlHmm.. :-(09:04
LaserJockI think it would be nice to do though09:04
georgsvlDoes any one know of Danish Schools running it?09:04
LaserJockit might be something that RichEd might be interested in09:04
georgsvlWe are sitting with 20 computers and a server in Aalborg, Denmark, and practising. So it would be nice to know about som schools ind Denmark.09:05
