    a2j, I know what you mean. But isn't that exactly the reason behind a server? To have a machine that is more capable then any single client could be, thus having multiple network interfaces (even a...

    [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 vs 10.04 lts

    You could be right with that one. I just thought the pictures are a nice addition if one is not familiar with headless servers. That's really the only reason why I pulled that up.

    [other] Re: building a NAS / streaming server

    I see. I wasn't really aware that there is/was a change in sector size.

    Of course, different size wouldn't make sense in a RAID, as the smallest drive set the max space per drive used. I wouldn't...

    Helpful how-to for server setup, might not all apply to you, but maybe at least partially helpful:

    [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 vs 10.04 lts

    I also would say that 10.04 would be the better choice, you can get the next LTS going after it has been out for a while and is tried and tested and stable.
    Ubuntu is based on Debian. Unlike...

    I wouldn't have thought that different drives in an array would cause trouble. Actually I was thinking about getting e.g. 4-5 Seagate and 4-5 Hitachi. Exactly for the reason rubylaser mentioned.

    It's pretty much as I thought. Laptop drives usually are 5400RPM but for the love of me I don't recognise any speed difference to a desktop with similar specs.

    Found a Hitachi Deskstar 2TB for AU$191.
    A Samsung I saw for AU$152, but this is a slow spinning (5400RPM) drive. Not sure if that matters so much in a RAID 10.

    RAID 0 will kinda be the last option. Unless the storage space is really needed I'd prefer something like RAID 10 or 5. My problem, though, seems to be that I have trouble finding affordable...

    From my understanding a lot of those issues are due to Unity. That would not be the case with Xubuntu or Kubuntu. Also, as I understand it, if one switches from Unity to good ol' Gnome, most of said...
