older PC support?

Postby tardis3 » Thu Nov 24, 2016 5:55 pm

I would like to install Amahi on an older PC. I read a few tutorials online that suggest that (for home use) Amahi would be suitable. However these articles a a year or two old, I now see that Amahi requires a 64 bit processor. I'm not sure if this older PC is 64 bit or not.

I thought about downloading an older version however the warnings were everywhere that it is unsupported. And if I want an older 32 bit version it's not even available.

So what is my best bet to set up a NAS on an older PC?

Your best option would be to finds a distro like Ubuntu that offers 32-bit. There are many tutorials on the internet that will instruct how to build a NAS server from scratch.

OpenMediaVault or FreeNAS might work for you if they still offer 32-bit versions.

Unfortunately Amahi is only for 64-bit machines. All older versions that allowed 32-bit are no longer supported.
