Re: Amahi or NAS

the NAS is very nice, it's a one-stop solution. The problem with these kinds of solutions is that you don't have a lot of flexibility, and high up-front cost. Lemme explain: NAS solution you buy a 2TB NAS at premium price ($350 for the cheapest good solution?). It's nice and compact and doesn't take...

Re: re-installing amahi on the server

yeah, but why ditch LVM? it's much more flexible than the traditional way of partitioning.

Personally I use a mix of old & new:
/dev/sda
/boot on /dev/sda1
swap on /dev/sda2
/ on /dev/sda3
/home on /dev/sda4
/dev/sdb
/var/hda on /dev/vgdata/lvdata

Re: harddisk control (adding/changing)

fdisk is installed by default on every linux distro. root@localhost # I think running su - doesn't really help here if you're logged on as root, you'll just spawn another bash instance. however, if you're elevating your rights from a normal user to root, you MUST run the command like this: su - this...

Re: harddisk control (adding/changing)

No you don't need to reinstall.
You can extend your lvm with a 4th disk.

As posted in the installation section I'm going to experiment a little bit with it and post a tutorial...
If you can wait a couple of days I'll have the tut posted.

Re: re-installing amahi on the server

I think the diskmounter script will not work on lvm (not sure, but it's not a very complicated script). You can always install (physically) the 4th disk after your install (or with the current install) and extend your lvm. What filesystem you use will have some impact on the tools you need for this....

Re: Vista Home Premium (64 bit) backup problems

This thread here suggests fiddling around with your umask in the mount options (and /etc/fstab). You might wanna check that out.

Re: Gallery2

if you want to remove the .htaccess file (not recommended!) you can find it in /var/www/html (this is the default path, you can do a # locate .htaccess to find it if it resides somewhere else). in /var/www/html you do the following: # ls -la <you should see .htaccess in the resulting list> # mv .hta...

Re: Vista Home Premium (64 bit) backup problems

just to get the info straight:
you're trying to backup an external USB (FAT32) drive (on Vista) to the Amahi server?

Have you tried backing up something from the local Vista disk? If this works, you know for sure it's in the USB part :idea:

Re: Partitioning scheme for Fedora and Amahi

yeah I'd already read a lot about that, which is why I opted for the 750GB disk instead of the 1TB disk, the 1 & 1.5 TB disks seem to be affected most with this. I noticed that there was a pretty old firmware loaded on the drive (SD15, SD19 or SD20 is current) so I wanted to update it but the disk d...

Re: Partitioning scheme for Fedora and Amahi

heh, saw that in the faq or some post already... I did sort it out different though: I moved some stuff in the /var/hda directory around and changed the mount point of the logical volume from /var/hda/files to /var/hda. then I copied some stuff back and it worked. anyway, with everything sorted alri...
