    [ubuntu] Re: Home Server Software Ideas

    I'd agree totally with rubylaser. Spending money on a backup client is a waste.

    Read the rsync man pages, get familiar with it's options and facilities, and you'll find that it'll do all you'll...

    Re: What's with the #Ubuntu IRC channel?

    The IRC channel can be tricky at times. I used to spend ages there helping who I could. At times it feels like you and maybe one other person are the only people actually helping, and not asking...

    Re: Show Us Your Server

    You know, I'd post up pics of my servers, but my "main" :rolleyes: server has been down for weeks. I'm changing the mobo to one out of a collection that I came across. It'll have a 2.2Ghz Celeron now...

    Re: Cannot load.Not enough RAM

    Try PuppyLinx, Slitaz, DamnSmallLinux, TinyCore etc, all distros which are designed specifically for old/under-powered machines.

    I'm not at my Ubuntu computer at the moment, but as far as I recall, the mail is stored at /var/log/mail. You can read it just with a text editor.

    It's probably some sort of automatic report...

    Remastersys is what you're looking for, but I'm unsure whether it's GUI only tbh. It'll do exactly what you're looking for though.

    So far, no luck. Natty hasn't been able to use the card, as has Arch.

    I've yet to try it under Windows, and have created a some sort of a solution, by transplanting the drive into another system. ...

    Wow, that's a brilliantly comprehensive report o.O

    I'm also suffering from the same problem, with two slightly different VT6421a cards.

    So far, I've had no success with Debian 5, and have had...

    If you're in Ireland, memoryc.ie generally have decent deals on new RAM, though older types can be more expensive.

    Ebay is great, seeing as used ram is often cheap as buttons :)
