Default Some trouble with fresh 7.10/ltsp - now fresh 7.04

Hi,

I have now: fresh 7.04 amd64, no patches, no changes, working clients
(1280x1024), console still unchangable 640x480

Client freeze after 1,5 hour working (no mouse, nothing). Client working
perfect with other servers. No syslog-messages.

One problem (same with 7.10 befor): strange behaviour compiling
vmware-server 1.0.4 (later down).

So this ist the original 7.04 with no changes from my side:
Right now there is no entry about the 16MB-RAM on that mga-Card.

no error. but only 640x480 are available.


I have different vmware-servers (1.0.2-1.0.4 and 2.0beta) running with
32bit-edubuntu and 64bit-SLES10.
On the 64bit-edubuntu (same with now:7.04, before: 7.10) there are some
strange things happening:

During network setup it said:


Do you want this program to probe for an unused private subnet?
(yes/no/help)
[yes]

Probing for an unused private subnet (this can take some time)...

sh: /usr/bin/vmware-ping: not found
...
sh: /usr/bin/vmware-ping: not found
We were unable to locate an unused Class C subnet in the range of private
network numbers. For each subnet that we tried we received a response
to our
ICMP ping packets from a host at the network address intended for
assignment to
this machine. Because no private subnet appears to be unused you will
need to
explicitly specify a network number by hand.

/usr/bin/vmware-ping: no such file...


-r-sr-xr-x 1 root root 10852 2008-01-14 08:11 /usr/bin/vmware-ping
root@g1:/usr/bin# ./vmware-ping

And:
Building the VMware VmPerl Scripting API.

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Unable to compile the VMware VmPerl Scripting API.

********
The VMware VmPerl Scripting API was not installed. Errors encountered
during
compilation and installation of the module can be found here:
/tmp/vmware-config1

You will not be able to use the "vmware-cmd" program.

Errors can be found in the log file:

Thanks for any hints.

Could you please give us the logfile anyway?

Can you attach /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log so we can see how





your video card is configured and what errors it's giving.



no error. but only 640x480 are available.

Sorry, I forgot. Here it is.

Did you try creating the file /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf and
putting in a line to set the colour depth on that machine (by mac address).

[00:11:25:84:CE:BA]
