Hi list and gurus
- I'm new with this list and LI-F-E, but not new to LTSP and KIWI/LTSP.
- over the last 7 days I've struggled to setup a plain vanilla
KIWI/LTSP5 server - the problem being that ALL HP clients, but not any
other type of client, causes a kernel panic at initrd stage. The network
module in use is tg3.
I've received lots of kind help from the people over at KIWI/LTSP. One
of the suggestions (as we're all pretty desperate now) was to download
and install LI-F-E.
This is now installed on a standard HP ProLiant serverbox (32bit). A
part from a slight confusion on my part setting up the network - you use
something called br (bridged) and you don't use eth0 directly - once I
got that configured correctly, the server itself works fine. I browses
the net and all.
Then I run into problems.
a) I enable 'remote access to X' in the sysconfig. I run SuSEconfig,
switch down to runlevel 3 and back up to 5 again. No remote X. Nada. And
I kill the firewall as well. I reboot. Nada. Eh...that's the first thing
I don't understand, I give (on my laptop) X :1 -query <IP-of-server>.
Any hints to what I'm doing wrong here?
THIS IMPLEMENTATION OF LTSP BOOTS MY TROUBLED HP CLIENTS! I shout that
out, because it's a major step forward :-) And it's fast.
but alas, it will not let me login. I setup a virginal new user, type
the username and password, it then takes a long time verifying and
finally states that there is no contact to server. Restarts and over we
What could be that culprit here? The logs are empty.
184.108.40.206-0.1-default is the kernel version that came with the LI-F-E iso.
All and any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot.
