Intel NUC
« on: March 17, 2013, 02:56:21 am »
Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone has tried using an intel nuc for an MD?
I was going to look at using one as a core, however it would require a USB Ethernet adapter.
Keen to hear others thoughts on this?

Cheers

i run a usb Adapter as well....
It requires the ASIX driver in most case. I got the apple one.

Thanks,  I might give one a go and see how it fairs.
Should use a lot less power than my current clunker (core2duo)
The only think I was concerned about was the graphics, intel HD 4000.

Hey Guys,

Just  borrowed one of these to give it a shot, firstly I tried to PXE boot it as an MD, it unfortunately kernel panics;

Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempt to kill init!
Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted 2.6.32-44-generic #98-Ubuntu

Any ideas?

Ok with a little assistance from the Unrecognized Nic wiki entry and the latest src for the e1000e from http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/?source=navbar I have managed to create a new MD, the NUC boots, and I am presented with Failed to setup X.

I will now try to compile the modules for the intel graphics card HD 4000 :P
