james_I am having an issue where after several students log in the server slows down and the other network card shuts down so no ssh access during this condition.  the only way I have been able to fix this is to power off / reset the server and everything is fine for a while..  opteron / 2gb ram edubuntu 8.04 / pxeboot02:36
james_has anyone seen anything like this before?  btw. it's edubuntu amd6402:36
cilkayjames_: I don't understand the "pxe boot" and server part. Please explain.02:48
cilkayI've had strange things happening with LTSP, such as the first netboot is very fast, faster than a local hard disk boot actually, and each subsequent one gets slower to the point where by the third or fourth, it may never boot.02:50
cilkayThe server certainly isn't underpowered with a P4 2.8GHz and 2GB of RAM.02:50
cilkayToday, when I changed a GDM theme and logged out to see the new theme, all I saw was a black screen. The keyboard wasn't responsive. I couldn't ssh into the machine to see what was going on. "No route to host." When I power cycled the machine, it was fine. There is something funny going on.02:52
james_That behavior is very similar to what I am seeing.  pxe boot is the same as netboot and the server is the main computer.03:33
cilkayjames_: I thought you were pxe/netbooting the server, which didn't make sense.03:54
wimaSince the last upgrade, i have the problem that local devices from one user show up for all users.12:55
wimaso i'm having about 20 floppys on my desktop12:55
wimadoes anyone know what's causing this?12:55
carwashIn skolelinux/debian-edu there is an install option for workstations automatically authenticating against the debian-edu server and mounting home directories. Is there a similar option in edubuntu? If not, how would one achieve a similar goal in ubuntu?13:47
wimadoes anyone know how i can avoid the floppy icons to show up on the desktop?14:25

McLinuxHi - Can anyone tell me why I ended up with edubuntu when I installed ubuntu?  I haven't noticed any difference but the name, but I'm a bit curious is all!21:08
HedgeMageMcLinux:  Perhaps you used and Edubuntu CD by accident, or perhaps you installed the package "Edubuntu-desktop"21:10
HedgeMageMcLinux:  the only differences between edubuntu and ubuntu are the art and packages included by default -- you can actually turn one into the other and back again with ease21:11
McLinuxcould it have been from one of the updates I downloaded?21:13
HedgeMageno, updates just bring your existing stuff up to current versions.21:17
McLinuxhmm, how do you change desktop packages (I've had ubuntu a few months but I'm just starting  to play with it!)?21:18
HedgeMageMcLinux:  just install ubuntu-desktop and remove any edubuntu stuff you don't want21:21
LaserJocksbalneav: around?23:45
