Re: Root partition filling up

Those two groups of errors are normal.
That is not true by default, any error is not normal, otherwise it would not be an error.

The point is: how deep do you want to dig (or can you dig) or do you just accept it and do some housekeeping now and then.

Re: Root partition filling up

usually you should be able to keep your machine running for a long time (my max uptime for a linux machine at home was well over a year, at work we have systems that haven't been rebooted since they first came up 5 years ago (very customized systems, no patches etc.)). A reboot should only be needed...

Re: Root partition filling up

you should be able to remove those core files without issue. And you should let one of the devs look at your /var/log/messages and samba log files. It seems that there are some issues with samba seeing that you have that many log files.

Re: Root partition filling up

run the following command as the root user to see which directories are big: du -xkh --max-depth=1 / then drill down (i.e. /var is big): du -xkh --max-depth=1 /var that should help you. Also checking if /etc/logrotate.conf has the option "compress" enabled (there should be no # in front of it) and r...

Re: Confused over hard drive formats...

NTFS should work fine on Linux as well.
Blame Apple for not supporting the Linux ext filesystems properly.

You could take a look at vfs/xfs and such but I'm not sure about the support for that in Mac OS either.

Re: Installation of IBM M1015 (LSI MegaRAID 9240-8i) card

during the boot screens you should see a timer (booting fedora... in X seconds) if you press a key you get to a menu where you can choose a different kernel. if you want a different kernel to be booted as default you should edit /boot/grub/menu.lst change default=0 to default=<the title of the kerne...

Re: SMART HD monitoring?

smartctl -a /dev/<yourdrive>

gives you a full report

smartctl -t short /dev/<yourdrive> for a short 2 or 4 minute test, "long" for a long 30 minute test IIRC.

Re: Whats your HDA Server uptime

My hda was shut down for our holiday away from home, but uptime was somewhere around a year.

At work we decomissioned a server at exactly 1000 days uptime (up to the second!).

Re: Network Settings keep resetting on reboot

DHCP can be turned off through the dashboard IIRC, the rest is put into the amahi database and a few config files. You'll need to modify that by hand. It's somewhere on the forum or the wiki I think.

Re: SMB speed and guest user

dinkmike, most people never had a performance issue with SMB, and those that had have been given a fix which should now be standard in Amahi. Adding a disk is as easy as putting it in and running a script. Greyhole I don't know. I manage my own storage on another level so I don't need it. Amahi is p...
