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?
Don't know about that, but why do you want to enable remote access?
LTSP5 uses ssh -X not XDMCP.
THIS IMPLEMENTATION OF LTSP BOOTS MY TROUBLED HP CLIENTS! I shout that
out, because it's a major step forward :-) And it's fast.
That is a good news :)
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.
Provide needed info from here:
Now that you have same question on three different mailing list, it
would be great if you can post on your threads elsewhere that the
client now boots up using Li-f-e DVD so someone else running into the
similar situation know what you did to get it working.
It would be better to continue your thread on ltsp-discuss ML as your
question is more LTSP related than Education.
