Re: Questions around going from 18.3 to 19 with MDADM and a few apps

... and things have been running along perfectly fine for quite some time now. Given the above, and given that it's a media server, and given that LM 18.x is supported until sometime in 2021, perhaps another consideration is that the "easiest way" you seek is already deployed. :) Joe Hahaha.... 5 s...

Questions around going from 18.3 to 19 with MDADM and a few apps

My media server sits in a Supermicro 846E16-R1200B case. This case has 24 bays (I'm currently using 18). There is a single SFF-8087 cable that goes from the back plane into an LSI HBA. Right now, I'm running Mint 18.3 and setup MDADM in RAID 6 for all my media (composed of 12, 4TB drives). I have a ...

Go into Internet Connections, see if you have it checked for "connect to this when available" or similar language.
Yes, that option is checked.

Anyone have a memory leak type problem with Emby?

The past several versions of Emby keep giving me the same problem. After I add a library and let my server sit for an hour or so, the Emby service is using crazy amounts of RAM. It just keeps climbing and climbing until I stop it by deleting the library and restarting the service. Once, I let it go ...

Re: Mint won't automatically re-connect to internet if it goes down then comes back

You might try this: temporarily, select the most aggressive update policy (Update Manager - panel: Edit - Update policy) and install all previously withheld level 3 and 4 updates that show up. Then reboot. 3 and 4 were already selected. I'm a bit adventurous so I'm already applying 1,2,3 and 4 leve...

Re: Mint won't automatically re-connect to internet if it goes down then comes back

It should reconnect automatically: this isn't normal. Please generate an overview of your system like this: - Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window) ; - make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines; - copy/paste this command into the terminal: inxi -Fxz (...

Mint won't automatically re-connect to internet if it goes down then comes back

Using 18.3 Cinnamon I have this weird problem. I have multiple computers in my house. Some are wired, some are wireless. A mixture of Linux Mint and Windows. If my internet ever goes out (or I need to reboot my router), when the internet comes back, Mint won't automatically reconnect like my Windows...

Chromium loads mobile version of chase.com

I don't have this problem with Chromium and other distros, just Mint. Every time I log into my bank account on chase.com, it defaults to the mobile version of the site. I don't see anywhere to click 'load desktop version'. Any way to fix this? I'd prefer to keep using Chromium. Chromium Version 64.0...

Moving mdadm array to new case, any concerns?

Getting ready to move my 8 drive mdadm RAID 6 array to a new case. The old case has the 8 drives hooked up to an LSI 9207-8i (HBA) with reverse breakout cables. The new case has a SFF-8087 connector for each back plane and those back planes will feed into an Intel SAS expander and that expander, int...

It will work. Patience :) [/code] Since you can share folders from within your array..... what version of Mint and mdadm are you using? I'm using Cinnamon 18.3 and mdadm v3.3. The versions really do not matter. The problem is not actually there. Just to make sure here - Do you have nfs-common and N...

Re: Can see my NFS share but not the files/folders inside it

Leave your hosts.deny blank. Change your hosts.allow to: ALL:ALL Not that this would solve your problem but in your /etc/hosts file add your computers and their ip addresses. This will make things much easier in the long run for you. Install the program "nmap" which shows open ports on hosts/server...

Re: Can see my NFS share but not the files/folders inside it

So using Antergos, I was able to get this working perfectly. I used the same export file, same everything. Other than the slightly older version of mdadm that comes with Mint 18.3, why would this work in Antergos and fail in Mint?

Do you think upgrading mdadm to 4.x in Mint will fix my problem?
