    [ubuntu] Re: Web-Based Media Center

    Coincidentally, I just came across MediaTomb in my searches. It looks like a good way to stream the media to computers, XBMC, or other devices on the network.

    [ubuntu] Re: Web-Based Media Center

    Thanks. Vortexbox sounds closest to what I need, but it looks like it's designed to handle music only?

    Just to clarify, the purpose of this server is to allow other network computers to download...

    GParted should be able to do that with no problems. Just delete the Ubuntu and swap partions and extend/grow the NTFS partition to fill the free space. It may take a while, but it should work.

    You...

    [all variants] Re: HandBrakeCLI Script

    Thanks. That seems logical. I know how to make a shell script and such, but I'm not familiar with anything aside from running a simple command.

    Looks like this is just what I needed.

    Thanks.

    [ubuntu] Resizing NTFS with bad sectors

    I'm trying to resize a Windows XP NTFS partition on my brother's laptop; I eagerly started up the Ubuntu LiveCD and ran GParted. However, I was discouraged to find out that GParted simply would not...

    The reason why Vista won't let you do more than a small percentage is because there are those immovable files. I would strongly suggest defragging first; when I first tried to install ubuntu on an...

    What you're going to do is boot from the live cd, and assuming you can connect to the internet, go to the page I linked you to, and follow the instructions to reinstall grub. I can't think of any...

  15. [ubuntu] Re: I just installed ubuntu to my 1 tb Seagate FreeAgent Desk but can't get to run

    Did you make sure that GRUB installed okay? It should ask you which thing you want to boot into. If somehow the grub installation got messed up, then you can try reinstalling it from the cd.
