Re: Suggestion that we drop the Fedora base, and go with Ubuntu

Agreed, Fedora has a better installer - but why does that matter so much? The installer is used ONCE.

Re: Suggestion that we drop the Fedora base, and go with Ubuntu

In my opinion, basing a server on an OS that's only supported for 24 months is short sighted. That's a more rapid release cycle than even Microsoft uses!

Please, please, change over to Ubuntu.

Cannot install desktop

I tried the instructions here:

I want Cinnamon, so I entered: yum install @cinnamon-desktop

I am getting timeouts from yum trying to contact repositories and mirrors.

Re: New 7.1 installation wants to delete Dell diagnostic partition

Well then - that's a fail. One should be able to configure all partitions as desired during an OS install. This isn't 1995 - or a workstation or a client. Amahi is SERVER software and should be thought of that way. The limitation may be caused by Fedora's Express Install disc but that doesn't matter...

New 7.1 installation wants to delete Dell diagnostic partition

Hi - am currently running Amahi 6 on Ubuntu 12.04 and want to install Amahi 7.1 with Fedora 19 on my Dell PowerEdge 1800 server using an express install disc. Custom partitioning wants to delete the Dell Utility diagnostic partition which is a primary FAT 16 partition of about 40 MB. I can't see any...

Re: Slow network transfer SOLVED

Don't know what fixed it - but it's working properly now. I had to recreate the share to the 1 TB array - it's now named data and is mounted at /media/sdb1 . I also mounted sdb1 using the UUID. For some time I was unable to access my Samba shares over the network from a Windows 7 Professional client...

SOLVED: Slow network transfer-Win7 to Amahi w/ Ubuntu 12.04

Like painfully slow. I've mapped a drive on the Windows box to the 1 TB RAID 1 two disk array I use for storage (the Ubuntu installation is on a different disk). It's controlled by a CERC SATA 6-Channel RAID Controller . Drive X:\ is mapped to /data/media. When I transfer files via the drive mapping...

Re: Ubuntu Updates: servers area, watchdog fixes, installer

My install was trouble free - but I still can't connect to IBM's network when the Amahi server is up. My issue is described here:

Re: Cannot access Lotus Notes server while Amahi server is u

Yes, please give me other things to look at. The attachment to this post (PingD01ML393.txt) is pinging the Notes server after the Amahi server start.
