Damn, this is so strange. Something else must be getting in the way here.

Thanks! I've reviewed the logs. They look very normal to me.

I'm a bit lost here. Something is subtly wrong somewhere. Either in
the procedure you're following or in the software. We need to find out
what it is...

Re: [Server-devel] XS 0.5.1-dev03 with ejabberd goodness, kernel bling, Access Point workingness... looking for xmas testers

2009-01-01 Thread David Leeming
Hi Rueben,

 

Hope you had a nice time over Christmas and new Year! Sorry to bring this
down to earth again...but life goes on.. J 

 

I have reinstalled a fresh install. On starting, the server now shows

OLPC School Server release 9-0.5

Kernel 2.6.27.7-53.fc9.i686 on an i686 (tty1)

 

Everything done exactly as below. The XS has been configured and Online
roster created, server restarted. eJabberd running. The XOs have been
de-registered and rebooted, and then registered, and rebooted. This is what
happens when they have started up: 

 

(1)All four XOs are connected

(2)All have been registered - i.e. it told me registration successful

(3)olpc-netstatus shows that all are running Telepathy type gabble, but
the numbers of XOs shown varies from 3 to 5 on the XOs and the corresponding
incomplete population on the neighbourhood screen. The school server is
correctly shown, and config is shown as school mesh on all four. 

(4)Check - ejabberd running OK

(5)After a period of 30 mins, no change. I shut down 3 XOs and check Web
admin - it shows all four XOs registered. 

(6)I reboot everything inc server. After allowing a few minutes, I
check: ejabberd is running, all four XOs are connected, olpc-netstatus shows
them all running Telepathy gabble, school mesh, but XO = 2 (i.e. server and
XO). Neighbourhood screen remains unpopulated, even after 10 minutes. 

(7)Video chat starts up OK but you don't see any other XOs initially.
However, after 5 minutes some of the other XOs do start to appear on Video
Chat - even though they are not shown in the network view, and it is not
reliable or symmetric - i.e. XO-1 might see XO-2 but not vice versa. This
might be an important clue or symptom of what is happening

 

 

The work around is as before:

(1)Shut down all but one XO, log on to ejabberd Web Admin and delete all
users, reboot everything.

(2)Start everything up and it works fine (as you can see on Youtube),
but only for that session - I have to do this procedure each time to get it
working.. and even then you can't be sure of 100% collaboration between the
four XOs

 

The identical equipment all works fine with XS-0.4

 I want to do a new install but can you let me know if I can install Samba
 and how to set up access to a shared folder on a Windows PC on the LAN as I
 have a large content collection and it takes ages to copy it all again by
 flash drive. Or maybe there is a better way to do it.

I was curious about that, too, so I looked into other alternatives as Samba
can sometimes be a pain to configure.  It's also yet another service to run
on the XS.

I found an sshfs utility for Windows called Dokan.  And it's free for
non-commercial purposes!  This might make more sense than fooling with
Samba, especially if you only have one Windows machine to deal with.

The Dokan library and Doken SSHFS packages are at
http://dokan-dev.net/en/download/.  I also had to install the Microsoft
Visual C++ package mentioned on that site, the .NET Framework (which was 55
MB), and Windows Installer 3.1.

There's a nice GUI to enter in your ssh login info and mount points.  I
connected and now /home/anna on the XS is mounted read/write on N: on an XP
machine.

2008-12-30 Thread David Leeming
Hi Rueben,

 

. I did all that you mention in my previous install (I forgot to
tell you about editing /etc/sysconfig/network

. All the XOs were registered (from 8.2) and were repeatedly
deregistered and re-registered, I even deleted all the ejabberd data and
started again but still observe this issue

. I tried upgrading to 5.1 (the image dated Dec 24th) and that was
achieved successfully but then discovered that ejabberd is no longer running
(status reports : Node ejabbe...@schoolserver1 is started. Status: started.
ejabbered is not running (sic). The 4 laptops are all showing as connected
to school mesh, and can see each other, but are using Telepathy type
salut. This happened before - I got it going again by deleting all the
ejabberd data.

. Ejabberd data deleted, all XO s deregistered and reregistered and
still no joy

 

I want to do a new install but can you let me know if I can install Samba
and how to set up access to a shared folder on a Windows PC on the LAN as I
have a large content collection and it takes ages to copy it all again by
flash drive. Or maybe there is a better way to do it. 

 

BTW downloading each new 500MB+ image is extremely difficult or impossible
in most of the 26 countries in the Pacific Islands. When I work in PNG you
have to stay in hotels in Port Moresby where there is no generally available
DSL and wireless access is only available at the hotels at USD 30 for 100MB.

After you register, you _must_ restart the laptops.  But not the

registration to become effective you must restart).

Reuben has been testing it, and it seems to work for him (restrating
the laptops). Perhaps you could retest with this in mind...?

 However, it is almost there - Great work Martin and XS devel team - it's a

there's something misconfigured with the domain name. Maybe you

One way is to remove all the ejabberd data.

 - service ejabberd stop
 - rm /var/lib/ejabberd/spool/*
 - service ejabberd start

and then re-do the steps of creating the 'admin' acct for ejabberd,

Despite the update (which is definitely installed - if I repeat the command
it tells be it's already done and fully updated) I still had to do the work
around of removing all four users from the ejabberd webadmin and restarting
everything before I could see them in the neighbourhood views. This happens
each time a laptop is restarted. I tried shutting everything down then
starting up again - and the users have reappeared in Webadmin and I have to
delete them all again and restart before it works.


However, once all started up as above, it is fine: 

- All four show up in the eJabberd control panel as users
- All have the same correct results for olpc-netstatus 
- I tried sharing Memorize - all four OK
- Video chat is OK between any two
- Server access and Internet browsing all OK (updated them each online)


However, it is almost there - Great work Martin and XS devel team - it's a
brilliant project, and have a great Christmas!

 Hi Martin, well done I installed that and restarted but still get

thanks!

 Service ejabberd status
 Node ejabb...@schoolserver is started. Status: started.
 ejabberd is not running


 force reload does not help

there's something misconfigured with the domain name. Maybe you
changed domain name?

One way is to remove all the ejabberd data.

 - service ejabberd stop
 - rm /var/lib/ejabberd/spool/*
 - service ejabberd start

and then re-do the steps of creating the 'admin' acct for ejabberd,
and creating the 'Online' roster...

I've re-added the CC to the server-devel list so that the solution is
findable in case someone else hits this... hope that's ok!

cheers,
