LTSP Major Problems! XDMCP


Hi! I am having problems with LTSP and getting it to work, My major problem is I seem not to be able to get XDCMP to work, It says its installed but I cannot enable it. A detailed description of the problem is below.

[root@localhost ~]# ltspcfg

ltspcfg - Version 0.10

Checking Runlevel....: 5
Checking Ethernet Interfaces
Checking Dhcpd.....
Checking Tftpd.......
Checking Portmapper...
Checking nfs....
Checking xdmcp...........Found: xdm, gdm, kdm Using: none!
Checking /etc/hosts.
Checking /etc/hosts.allow.
Checking /etc/exports.
Checking lts.conf.

Press <enter> to continue..

(As it shows xdmcp is clearly not using any type of display manager above)

ltspcfg v0.10 The Linux Terminal Server Project (http://www.LTSP.org)
S - Show the status of all services
C - Configure the services manually

Q - Quit

Make a selection:

(I make the selection C to configure services manually and 7 for XDMCP configuration in the next screen, When I am prompted for a login I choose yes, followed by yes for graphcial login)

ltspcfg v0.10 The Linux Terminal Server Project (http://www.LTSP.org)
Xdmcp is the protocol used by a display manager to present
a login dialog box on the workstation.

Do you want to enable (y/n) ? y

Normally, when a display manager is running, it will launch an X server on
the console screen, giving you a graphical login on the console as well as
on the workstations. Some people prefer to keep their server in character
mode.

Do you want to disable the graphical login on the server (y/n) [Y]? y
Can't call method "configure" without a package or object reference at /usr/sbin/ltspcfg line 2426.
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
[root@localhost ~]#

[b}(This is where I believe the problem resides but I don't know what object or reference I should use on this line)[/b]

Here is a copy of my ltspcfg file

Normally, when a display manager is running, it will launch an X server on
the console screen, giving you a graphical login on the console as well as
on the workstations. Some people prefer to keep their server in character
mode.
EOF
$disable_console_x = main::get_yn(
"Do you want to disable the graphical login on the server",
main::get_conf_value( "DISABLE_CONSOLE_X" ) );

main::set_conf_value( "DISABLE_CONSOLE_X", $disable_console_x );

$self->{current_dm}->configure ();
}
}
main::cont();
} # sub configure_screen

sub get_disable_console_x {
return( $disable_console_x );
2433,5 64%

Line 2426 is "$self->{current_dm}->configure ();" My question is should this have a pointer to it and if so what should it be? I have been stuck on this grey screen for a week and a half and don't know what to do, I have followed all tutorials but with no luck. Can some one please pint me in the right direction.

Well, I know that at some point I was running LTSP successfully, probably on an earlier Linux install, Mandrake. However, for whatever reason, I ended up using Thinstation, instead.

To shorten the story, I'm now using FC4, along with Thinstation, but I purposely loaded LTSP because both its docs and configuration tools were of great benefit to my Thinstation setup.

When I run ltspcfg, it, too, tells me that XDMCP isn't running, when, indeed, it is - otherwise I wouldn't be typing this message. I'm in Gnome, and desktop>system settings>login screen shows that xdmcp is enabled.

So, I don't have a solution to your particular issue, other than if you're not having success with LTSP, and running a thinclient is your goal, you may wish to try Thinstation - thinstation.sf.net


cheers,

I am the first who solve this issue
FC-4 Friends. I got the solution. Only comment the last line of your
/etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config file and save+exit. Restart your server and fire the LTSP installer script. you will see this result
Checking xdmcp...........Found: xdm, gdm, kdm Using: kdm

Linux is only for Adroits
