HI folks

i need to know before i will install this distro is it possible to run NFS server on it ?

I'm asking because i need to share HD movies for my WDTV player over the network and samba seems to be to slow for it, so I'm looking for small distro for my old PC with 2x1TB of HD movies to share it over the network, i want to run this server once and unplug everything from it, mouse, keyboard,monitor only power and LAN will left and i want to forget about it Smile

i try openfiler but it is little tricky to install on it bittorrent client with web based interface, also tried FREENAS but it has only ext2 support (filesize limit to 2gb, and most of my movies has 8gb or 16gb and i dont want to buy another 2TB to backup it and the reformat for UFS Sad )

so here i am trying SMS Smile

maybe you have some additional suggestions for me, so please put it here



maybe you have some additional thoughts

Hi,
If you want NFS server add your share to /etc/exports file e.g.
Code:
# See exports(5) for a description.
# This file contains a list of all directories exported to other computers.
# It is used by rpc.nfsd and rpc.mountd.

/var/smb/samba/ *(async,all_squash,no_subtree_check)

make /etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd and /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc executables with
'chmod +x /etc/rc.d/{rc.nfsd,rc.rpc}"
Restart your server and you should have your nfs server ready to share.

You could try fuppes (DLNA media server), it's still on testing in SMS - mostly for on the fly A/V transcoding- here

i created 3.3GB ext3 and 0.7GB swap

Well it depends what you are installing, if you choose full installation it will install development packages including the source of the kernel which is quite big, since you are not going to compile anything , you probably don't need the devel series, so choose expert mode and add from x series the x-kde-addon.
Swap partition should be equal to twice your RAM, but since the machines now days are having over 2GB of ram, in real installation if your RAM exceeds 2GB you should create a 2GB partition.
Otherwise you could create a bigger partition Wink

it will be running on p3 500mhz with 512mb sdram and sata pci controller with 2x1TB hard disk

the system will be on 8gb old hdd Smile
so i will make 6gb for linux and 2gb for swap

if i don't choose development, later i cannot put new software that i want Smile thats i think, correct me if im wrong,

finally i have full install on virtual pc

dumb question, after reboot i have
server login :

on this state all of the services running ? samba web gui torrent and others ?

Since you have 512MB of RAM, 1GB Swap is good enough, not that 2GB will do any harm.
By the time you got to the login screen (server: login) all services are up and running.
Since 8GB drives are old you should backup your configuration frequently in case of an HDD failure.
Unless you do not want to compile a program from source devel series wouldn't be of any usage.
For installing/uninstalling packages devel series aren't necessary.
What apps you want to install?

Jdownloader don't need installation only extraction, you will need java (jre) package to be installed though, since it's a java app.
You can install jre from SMS.Native.CD-1.4.6-Extra under openbravo, and start jdownloader with "java jdownloader.jar" you can install web gui addon and manage jdownloader from web.
The only disadvantage is that cannot start as a service so you need to login and start the Xserver (startx).
You can enable tightvnc and manage your server through remote connection.

Just edit /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers.conf and /etc/tightvncserver.conf with your data
do a 'chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers' and add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local the line
/etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers start
to start automatically at boot.

i'm really appreciated for your support, i just started real adventure with linux Smile

i installed on my home PC SMS and looks like everything is working (i didnt add those storage drives yet, i will do this after everything will be setup)

i want to connect to my home from work and because i have dynamic ip i wanted to use no-ip.com service but i have this error after SAVE button

Unsupported file or mode >./config.txt at dyndns::../web-lib-funcs.pl line 4213

is because i changed the languge of gui to polish ? is it broken ?

This is an webmin error, long way back now, you should use your router's dynamic dns client it's faster. and port forward the ports,
or else edit /etc/ddclient.conf with your account under the no-ip section make /etc/rc.d/rc.ddclient executable with 'chmod +x" and start the service.
If no-ip gives error setup a dyndns.org account, I believe it's better.

Just do what I describe a couple of messages back, download tightvnc viewer for windows from
http://www.tightvnc.com/download/1.3.10/tightvnc-1.3.10_x86_viewer.zip
and test it.
