long Time i search to a distri for a LAMPP Server. I use MINT for my Desktops.
Now, i installed MINT also to my Homebrowed Server, I use a Mainboard from SIEMENS (from the Machine "Primergy-470"). The Board is a Dual
- Pentium II or III , with the Number "System Board 1031". This Board you can buy by EBAY for roundabout 10$
MINT works great with this Board, the Symbios l. SCSI- controller works vy. fine
Well, i install MINT, remove some Applications and add ftp server, apache, mysql, mailserver and some Tools. urgent is, to remove the network applet for network setting. then you can give a fix IP adress.
As next i modificated the system startup, that the system comes up without X. this is better for a server enviroment. Sometimes, when i need a X-enviroment, i take simply "startx".
the "main application" for my Home Server is eGroupware. I need, within install eGroupware, 4-5 hours for running.
