Re: [K12OSN] HELP NEEDED NOW: Need Documentation Testing and Feedback

Hah yeah, it started working 5 minutes after I sent this. No idea what the issue was.

Here are my test notes:

From these instructions:

CentOS 6 minimal install.  x86_64, netinstall.
Target clients are Thin clients in kiosk mode (firefox only). (old hardware, slow video, no fuse etc)

Not really related to LTSP steps before starting:
yum update
yum install libssh2.x86_64 openssh openssh-askpass openssh-clients openssh-server wget bind-utils
disable selinux
setup ssh keys

Using instructions now:
yum groupinstall Desktop (gnome)
rpm -Uhv http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm
yum update -- nothing to update
rpm -Uhv http://mplug.org/~k12linux/rpm/el6/x86_64/k12linux-release-5.2.16-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
yum install ltsp-server
echo "/opt/ltsp *(ro,async,no_root_squash)" >> /etc/exports
chkconfig network on
for service in xinetd ltsp-dhcpd rpcbind nfs sshd; do chkconfig $service on; service $service restart; done
for server in ldminfod nbdrootd nbdswapd tftp; do chkconfig $server on; done
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 (ltsp interface)
add BRIDGE=ltspbr0, change onboot to yes
edited /etc/sysconfig/iptables and allowed all from eth1 interface
mkdir /opt/ltsp/kiosk-home
useradd -d /opt/ltsp/kiosk-home/ws504 ws504
groupadd kiosk
usermod -a -G kiosk ws504
usermod -a -G fuse ws504
edit /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf
	add in group for thin clients, mac addy and static ip
/etc/init.d/ltsp-dhcpd restart

Client will PXE boot and hit TFTP properly but my old thin clients don't like the kernel so I need to work on building a custom one for the chroot.

I have a mini-lab setup and can also test with a PXE booted PC if anyone needs something specific tested etc.

Must be a temporary thing. I can hit it just fine from a firefox browser on F15.

     I am working on a fresh install for feedback following the instructions here:

     But I can't connect to the mplug.org<http://mplug.org>  repo from any of my
     centos hosts (old or new)?  I just get a time out trying to hit port 80.
       Browser, wget, telnet port 80 all behave the same.

     Works fine from a mac?!

         Hey folks,

         I just spent a few hours reorganizing the K12Linux site, hiding most of
         the old and obsolete pages and putting the important stuff up front.  I
         still plan on doing more reorganizing and writing.

         I have strong confidence in the code itself, but the documentation is
         probably too confusing and requires improvement.

         For now I really need people who are already familiar with LTSP to test
         the instructions AS WRITTEN with a fresh install and to provide feedback
         here on K12OSN list.  After some verification and tweaking of the
         documentation, we will be ready for the formal announcement where we
         invite the wider community to K12Linux EL6.
