[K12OSN] K12LTSP Hangs when Loading the Kernel



I was trying to solve a problem about a client which hangs when loading
the kernel. The computer is an Acer PowerSV model with 2.4Ghz RAM,
intel845 chipset, 256 RAM, on-board LAN/SOUND.

I was able to solve the problem and I want to share it in case somebody
encounters this problem too.

The problem is with one of the BIOS settings in the Board. You choose
the "Advance BIOD Features" and in there, there's a "Gate A20 Option"
which has two choices 1. Fast and 2. Normal. The default value is Fast
which will coz the computer to hang. So I changed the value to normal
which made my computer work.

I don't know a specific explanation why it hangs when using the Fast
mode. If anybody out there knows the reason. Please tell me.

Thanks

Hello,
I just tried loading FC1 on my network and got XDM too many 
retransmission errors on my cilents.

  I found this link:
http://204.182.52.180/fom-serve/cache/46.html
on the fix... and this one here:
http://204.182.52.180/fom-serve/cache/3.html

I was just wondering if anyone had encountered same XDM errors with 
K12LTSP 4 and if yes, what did you do to fix it?  I've got a grab bag of

monitors and hardware. I backed out to RH9 and manually loaded LTSP and 
most of my monitors are back but I'm getting other errors which

many thanks
Dennis

Paul, et all:

I grow increasingly worried as my servers are traveling to my 
district...  No one (including Microsoft) seems to be able to give me an

accurate picture of performance with many folks connected to a Microsoft

terminal services machine.

Paul's setup at Riverdale has 100 computers all able to access the 
server -- but I doubt all 100 are usually connected.  I'll mainly have 
folks using Microsoft Office (grumble grumble) and our proprietary 
student management system, which isn't really that big.

Does ANYONE have any idea how many concurrent connections a big server 
can handle?  I just found out today (again, showing my lack of Microsoft

experience) that there is no version of windows that can even try to 
access more than 4GB of RAM in a server.  That worries me.

I have 1 Server, with dual 3.2Ghz/2MB Cache Xeons, and 6GB (only 4 
usable now...) of RAM, all running on a RAID 5 ULTRA320 array, and dual 
Gig ethernet.  I just couldn't think of anything more to throw at it for

performance!

Any advice or experiences would be appreciated.
Thanks,
-Shawn

VNC is nice unless the security program on the Windows machine will not 
allow you to access anything except certain given file types and those 
needed for VNC are not among them.  If I could do it with a browser I 
could probably make that work.  If I knew how.
Thanks

Glen,

I used the samba and ldap that came with WBEL Respin 1

[root littlewhite root]# rpm -qa | grep ldap
nss_ldap-207-10
openldap-servers-2.0.27-11
openldap-devel-2.0.27-11
openldap-clients-2.0.27-11
openldap-2.0.27-11
smbldap-tools-0.8.5-1
[root littlewhite root]# rpm -qa | grep samba
samba-client-3.0.2-6.3E
samba-3.0.2-6.3E
redhat-config-samba-1.0.16-1

I installed:
perl-Convert-ASN1-0.18-0.rhel3.dag.noarch.rpm
perl-Crypt-SmbHash-0.02-2.noarch.rpm
perl-Net-LDAP-0.2701-1.dag.rhel3.noarch.rpm

I installed directory_administrator-1.5.1-1.i386.rpm after building from
the source rpm.

For the most part I followed David's instructions. If you use ver 0.8.5
of the smbldap-tools read the change log. 

I downloaded the documentation at Idealx on smbldap-tools and 
smbldap-how-to. very useful.

I used their perl script /user/share/doc/smbldap-tools/configure.pl It
configured most of the smbldap.conf based on my already working smb.conf
but I still needed to tweak it. 


I also installed perl modules via CPAN as per David's How-to and
installed the gnome-devel packages to satisfy the dependencies when
installing directory_administrator. Verdict still out on this tool. 

John


---------------------------------------------------------------


John,  just bought a copy of Red Hat Enterprise Linux to evaluate for
$50.00 the price is hard to beat.  I am installing it now.  Did you
build your own samba installation or do you use a rpm install with wbel?
Because, I am currently using a RPM from the Samba site version 3.04 for
Red Hat 9.  I will see if Redhat update updates there Samba to that
version.

Thanks
-Glenn

VNC works well.

I used it to remotely control / setup WIN boxes AND connect to my LTSP
server anywher on campus.

I suggest using one of the secure VNC versions like TightVNC.

Check out some of the registry hacks available for VNC on the ORL
website.

Cheers,
Bert

I take it you can't run it from a floppy / USB pen drive?

VNC fits on a 720k floppy.
