Users / Re: Repeated mounting of internal HDs

It is not, and is considered normal operation of the system.

Is it possible to spin down the disks then, and/or can this behavior be changed?

Wouldn't like the thought of my disks running 24/7 for no apparent reason...


I'm not using the built-in WIFI. Unfortunately there is no way to disable the WIFI card in the BIOS.

You can easily unplug the WIFI card inside. Don't know if the machine will complain though...

I can recommend Proxmox:

Runs KVM and openVZ machines, easily maintained from a web interface.

Bare metal installer. Debian based.

Great. I'm running the new installer now, and am past the point where the old one hang.

Onwards to the next problem... :-)

Same problem.

get the beta2.
I (we) use internet install (
Should this not mean that we get beta2 - or rather simply the latest and greatest?

What are you trying to achieve?
LMCE use enough power so justify it´s own hardware.
But for test/development it´s a good solution.
It's my green consciousness telling me to have only one machine running 24/7. So I will put my LAMP on it as well as a LTSP for the household. I'm planning on 8GB ram / 4x1TB WD GP / 3GHz duo core or the like, maybe a quad. Hopefully a LMCE core won't use that much itself :-)

If I understand you right..
You do.

if you choose a USB tuner I see no reason why it shouldn´t work
That was my believe as well. I'm just looking to save a few bucks (not much left after the above spending ;-)) by reusing my PCI card.

Forget graphics performance.
I take it you're talking about graphics performance on the VMs?
There will be no MDs on this machine. They will all be "normal".

My two cents of knowledge.
Consider it as ideas.

Thanks for the ideas.


Installation issues / Tuners and virtualization
« on: June 21, 2008, 03:12:18 pm »

I'm planning a server that will run a few VMs including possibly a LinucMCE core.
Questions is, how do I get tuner input into the core?

I could just go and by some USB tuner(s), but I would like to wait with new investments until I'm going to shift for digital TV at some point. Until then I hope to be able to reuse my old Hauppauge PVR-500 PCI card.

One option is to go for Xen, which I believe is capable of forwarding a PCI device to a guest OS, but for reasons not 100% clear to me (performance and ease of setup), I have more or less convinced my self to go with KVM! :-)
As far as I know KVM cannot forward a PCI device to a guest. So:

- Can I set the host OS up to stream to the LMCE guest over the internal virtual ethernet? (which is probably not too smart considering stability of the server as a whole!)
- Is putting the card in a MD elsewhere the perfect solution?
