Installation issues / Making Raid storage the default storage
« on: November 12, 2011, 12:28:36 am »
Hi guys,

Total noob here.

Would you please be so kind to point me out how to start using my raid block as primary storage?

Just installed MCE on drive "a" and added a Raid5  block "b". 

Now when I navigate from the tv screen into media>manage drives I am unable to see the raid storage.

However, from the admin website I am able to see the the block when I go to Advanced>Configuration>raid.

Also do I need to create certain folder structure or can I use my own?

Hi guys,

I would like to ask you if 8.10 is relatively stable these days?

If it is, I would like to give it a go but if it isn't I'd like to wait until an RC is launched as I don't believe I'll have the knowledge to fix something if I run into trouble.

Best regards



Hi guys,

I know this is probably the wrong forum but I will be the right audience.

Which Mobo (trouble free and currently being produced) can you recommend me to build my first hybrid? The ones listed in the newbie hybrid pack are long gone...

I read a post that said that rather than models we should probably concentrate in chipsets, north/south bridge, and graphic capabilities.

Happy to put my time and effort to research if you point me in the right direction. I would probably preferr 7.1 audio and at least 4 sata ports.


Users / Newbie q: does linux mce can work as a file/print server?

Hi guys,

I am a total newbie and I am currently considering building a core.

As I want a minimal number of computers turned on 24/7 I would like to know if MCE can double as a file/print server.

I would like to achieve the following:
+ have my own space on the RAID system to store my files (different fro media) and be able to access them from any computer (e.g the raid system would appear as a drive while at home)
+ be able to access my files while on the road.
+ connect my printer to the core and be able to print wireless from my laptop.

I would also like to know how complicated it is as I am really a newbie. A couple of months ago someone introduced me to Ubuntu and I'm loving it but the learning curve has been steep.

Thanks so much.

Users / MSI K9N2 Diamond

I am trying to build a Hybrid.

As per the hardware section I have tried to find a MSI MS-7329 motherboard but it seems to be out of production.

Has anyone tried the MSI K9N2 Diamond?

This will be my first approach to Linux mce and will like a hassle free journey.

Otherwise could anyone please recommend me a hassle free, full feature, scalable motherboard?

Much appeciated.
