Hybrid to Core Alone
« on: May 23, 2009, 10:55:01 pm »
After using LMCE for over a year now on a single hybrid machine, I have recently purchased two machines I wish to use as Media Directors. I intend to continue to use my old hybrid machine as my home's core server, but would like to maximize its efficiency by removing the overhead introduced by the hybrid elements. Short of reinstalling, is it possible to convert a Hybrid system to a basic Core server?

Thank you posde. Interesting info in that link. I guess I was remembering an old pluto installation option for a "headless" Core that just ran off the command line and didn't realize that an LMCE Core required X.

Cheers,
Mark

Mark,

I *think* you get around X. Do some search in the wiki with keyword core and see what comes up. I know there is an article by Zaerc detailing a lot about how things interact.
