Copy Media to the CORE
« on: March 28, 2008, 11:14:27 am »
I have a CORE setup, & 120G removeable hard drive fulled with movies/videos/audio...
how can i have the CORE copy all the media off the removeable drive?
i dont want to use the removable drive as storage space on the core (its not mine, its a friends)

another thing... in /home there are 5 users... user_[1..5] why didnt they use my family members names.... i dont know which is my home directory...

thanks

not sure if there is a method inside LMCE or not but what I did was use the KDE desktop to transfer the files from one drive to another.  easy as drag and drop.
Asus M2NSLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2400 2.3GHz
Asus EN6200TC512 Graphic Card
WinTV PVR-150 MCE
(2) Samsung T166 SATA II 500GB
Corsair TwinX 2GB CL5 DDR2-800

i tried that a few times but got permission errors...

eventually i did something like this: sudo cp -V <source> <destination>
but the destination was /home/temp

LMCE has not cataloged any of that media... some of it i want to be only for me...
but most of it i want to be viewed by everyone. ie public...

do i just copy all the videos/movies to /home/public/data/videos? etc... for all the music as well?

thanks

To fix the permission problem, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo adduser linuxmce public
Copy videos to /home/public/data/videos, audio to /home/public/data/audio, and so on.

on my brothers MD... its a diskless MD... everything works great...
except when the starts KDE... he is root...

whats going on here... why is my brother root... that gives him full access to everything on the core...

in the LMCE UI, he is the user "Chris"... which is right...

how can i fix that? thanks
