Ubuntu Media Server

The story of converting an old Sparc Classic server into a mini-ITX ATOM processor NAS.

Progress so far.

A long bout of headscratching. The Samsung disks were giving Kernel errors, I first thought duff disk/leads etc, but it turns out there are some low-level SATA disk issues with the Ubuntu 8.4.1 (and earlier) builds. (A lot of Google ...)

Happy to report that this seems to have been fixed with the imminent 8.10 release (the Beta version is working fine at the moment).

Mediatomp & Samba left to install & configure and she'll be ready for service.
