    Ubuntu Home Server

    Am I safe to assume this project is dead?

    It looks like it, unfortunately.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    this project is dead.

    all active developers forked and created a new project "satega the openhomeserver"
    satega.org

    we are currently working hard for our first release.
    All help is welcome.

    With a 'home' server I presume that you want to share files with Windoze machines? In that case, go to the Samba project web site. They have a howto guide specific to Ubuntu.

    Not really, they're doing a clone of Windows Home Server, which does a lot more than just share files.

    Everything is already available in Ubuntu to do everything WHS does and more, it's just a matter of putting it all together in an easily-manageable format.
