Are the davicomm's built-in NICs or are they replacing onboard tlan's? I can't get my onbaord tlan's to boot. :-( Nobody wants to hassle with the drivers for them.

Cool thanks! Maybe we can get that integrated as part of the ltsp-core ebuild. It looks like mostly placement of files and a touch of dhcpd.conf config which already installs changes I think. You can submit the enhancement to bugs.gentoo.org and make Andres Toomsalu <frame [at] pfm. ee> the person you send it to as he's the one that has the entries in the ChangeLog and if memory serves me right is the original ltsp-core ebuild creator or close to it.

I just realized that he's got a 3.0.9 version masked at the moment. The changelog says it's a pointless upgrade though simply because it just adds new distro support on 3.0.7.

lol, we just use a bunch of ne2000 NICs because they were laying around. If I was going to buy I'd get the RTL8139s for something like $8 or less. I'm still amazed how cheap a NIC can be. :-)

Nope, I have almost all ISA NICs and that's PXE stuff right? It wouldn't do anything for me would it, or am I misunderstanding the purpose?

Swift is sponsoring our documentation at:

http://cvs.gentoo.org/~swift/ltsp.html see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20224 for more...

Basically, they are working on building a user-submitted documentation and the bug won't close until it's there.

Heino will have to add it. I don't have access to any public location of it. We should also inform frame of the update.

Here's some more info on PXE if anyone is looking for it:

Phew. I finally got NFS working. All I had to do was to disable protocols 3 and 4 from the kernel config. Thanks for the tip, flickerfly and sorry for bothering you guys with another tech support request.


Hey, I'm having the same problem, and I don't understand what you mean by disabling protocols 3 and 4 from the kernel config?!
My clienten can boot at first attempt, but I have to restart the server (nfs and others probably) beforce the thin client can connect again..

My log file shows the same as yours...
