Re: HOW TO Software RAID(mdadm) with easy sSMTP Gmail allert

Thank you Underpants. I know I'm not giving my RAID install or thread the attention they deserves. I learned a lot from implementing RAID at home and still draw on that experience. It took me weeks to gather all the information, equipment and assimilate it all into a working result. Its still workin...

Re: HOW TO Software RAID(mdadm) with easy sSMTP Gmail allert

I thought it relevant to mention that upgrading the OS and keeping the RAID 5 array was not as hard as I thought. This RAID 5 setup was originally on Mint 7. Its now on Mint 9. All I did was: Backed up the installed software with mint backup to a CD. Took a manual copy of any files I could remember ...

@Rooper3546
take a "0" out so it reads metadata=0.90
There is a Note in the How To pointing this out.

Re: Linux Mint 9 "Isadora" RC released!

Mint 9 RC. I use a "Dell Wireless 1450 Dual-band USB adapter" and it has always worked perfect with Mint 8 and I think with Mint 7 too but in Mint 9 RC its not even saying hello! Have a bunch of drivers been removed.. Is there a "big driver pile" in a repository or someplace that we can get easy. Ot...

Mint joining domain with Likewise open (to eBox or Windows)

Has anyone got any info about getting Likewise Open to join Mint onto a domain?
Particularly an eBox domain :-)

Its often mentioned that there is a problem but I cant find the fix yet.

Thanks,
Treefrog.

Re: HOW TO Software RAID(mdadm) with easy sSMTP Gmail allert

Perhaps a little ego "testicle" of me to say it but I'm glad my How To is still working away for people. I have since found an answer to the use of partitions to make the RAID out of and what LVM is all about. I got back into this when looking at eBox from eBox Platform. It has a RAID config tool an...

Re: Windows domain logon

@ normanp. That original post was back in 2008. Though I agree its still a current topic and would be nice if there was an easy way to get Mint to join a domain either from eBox, SME, clearOS or a MS windows domain. Has anyone got any info about getting Likewise Open to join Mint onto a domain? Part...

Re: How do you write a How To or Tutorial?

Thanks for the comments and extra links DrHu. Personally I like the forum as a place for tutorials. What tools do you use though? And any tips? For example: If Tomboy Notes is used then normally its necessary to reformat everything as its copied up for posting. This is fiddly!! It is possible to wri...

How do you write a How To or Tutorial?

Hi all, How do you write your How To documents? The way a How To or Tutorial is written is one thing. For example: http://www.copyblogger.com/how-to-write-a-killer-how-post-that-gets-attention/ http://www.knowledgehound.com/khhow2s/write_how_to.htm http://forrest.apache.org/docs_0_70/howto/howto-how...

Re: Mint brainstorm/ Better way to make suggestions

Yes the brainstorm, would be great. The resources would be focus in the more popular projects . I completely agree I can see this is something that has been looked at a little already. However here is another take on it, and it leads nicely from the previous post. Money. Donations, contributions or...
