Re: Shutdown, Suspend and Wake on LAN issues

Current status: PC set up again with RAID, Samba, NFS all working. WOL works but only when the PC is shut down. Something curious - when manually enabling all manner of Wake On LAN with, say sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol pumbg confirming activation with ethtool and suspending, running ethtool after wake ...

Shutdown, Suspend and Wake on LAN issues

Hi all As per my introduction thread a while ago, I wanted to convert my file server (a very strong description for what this PC will actually do) from Windows XP to Linux Mint 17. With information on this and other pages I was able to get my RAID setup sorted, Samba shares working to the 2 Windows ...

Re: File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

Some feedback. After an agonizing weekend of using multiple drives, some freed up from my Windows machine by partition copying, some not working due to BIOS issues in the target PC, trying to install multiple versions of Mint (13xfce, 17.1xfce, 17.2 Cinnamon) I finally got to the root of the problem...

Re: File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

Some feedback. Tried the various other routes suggested. No luck. It appears the hard disk is partially stuffed. Ignoring the one bad sector, I'm not having success mounting, inability to access superblocks pops up regardless of what I set the file system to. Formatted to Ext4 and FAT32 (with suitab...

Re: File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

Needing a walk-in safe to protect from criminals is grim. What a terrible place South Africa has become. To be fair, I don't need it. Very few homes have one, it just makes my gun hobby easier - safes are a requirement for firearm storage in South Africa. Most guys do with simple wall mounted safes...

Re: File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

..."Server" is a bit of a strong word for what this PC is going to do. "Data Vault" may be better - this PC sits in a walk-in safe with network links to the outside. All my photos and critical documentation is on it.... When you get a chance and a few extra $ - get a NAS! They're smaller, faster, a...

Re: File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

Thanks for the suggestions. Makes sense given how sluggish things looked. "Server" is a bit of a strong word for what this PC is going to do. "Data Vault" may be better - this PC sits in a walk-in safe with network links to the outside. All my photos and critical documentation is on it. Also some mu...

File system and other installation woes. Apparently...

Linux Newbie warning applies. :mrgreen: I have a file server that I'm trying to convert from Windows XP. The system is a 2007 vintage Intel Motherboard and processor (I'll look up the specifics if anyone believes it will make a difference), 1GB of RAM, some of it shared to the video adapter. a 160GB...

Re: South African checking in...

Welcome to the family, Tetelestai, and Happy Minting! If you don't mind my asking, why did you choose this particular username? I'm a Christian and a bit of a bookworm, so I recognised it as Greek for "It is Finished!" Seems like an unusual choice as a name. :) At any rate, you piqued my curiosity....

Re: South African checking in...

Mint is baie goed spul.... Dat ga jij zeker merken. :mrgreen: Welkom! Nou hoe het jy geweet ek praat die een amptelike landstaal (van die 11 wat ons het) wat maak dat ek Nederlands kan verstaan? Thanks for the welcome guys (and gals?). I'm trying to install to the troublesome PC again at the moment...

South African checking in...

Hi all. I'm new here (officially) but have been browsing the forum occasionally over the past few years. Started when I installed Linux Mint on two older computers to extend their useful life, an Acer Aspire One netbook and an old IBM Thinkpad, both mainly used to access music stored on my file serv...
