  1. Ok, I solved the issue. Thanks to even more googeling, and a failed drive that "forced" me into moving on with this. What solved it? Installing an experimental version of mdadm, allows the removal of a drive. NOTE: This is an experimental case, so please do not run if you are not willing to risk data. Links: Blog Post with Howto Ubuntu forum post about upgrading Debian Package for mdadm How to Resize RAID (tips only) Here is my "solution": 1. 4 Drives in RAID5, 1 drive failed cat /proc/mdstat Personalities : [linear] [multipath] [raid0] [raid1] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4] [
  2. I need some comments in regars to my NAS. I have a Linux Server running Ubuntu 10.04 (may upgrade) and I have a RAID5 for my storage aray, it consits of 4 x 1.5 TB HDDs. OS is running on a seperate disk and I have a 1 TB USB drive that is currently empty. I am thinking of "destroying" the RAID 5, to gain additional storage space, and start using MHDDFS to mount multiple drives too one mount point for a "large array". Today I loose 1 x 1.5 TB diskspace the the RAID 5. I do not want to run 1 large volume, because if I lose 1 disk, I lose it all. Any comments in regards to using MHDDFS? I
  3. The IPs has been setup, but my question is regarding iptables and how to setup the routing. Because you can not route on virtual devices, I need to route on IP level, and can not find any good information about that anywhere.
  4. I am trying to setup my linux box to act as a gateway for a few systems, with only 1 NIC installed. eth0 - is a DHCP IP and is always in the same range, let us use 111.112.58.* eth0:1 is and is the internal network. All I want is for my internal systems to be able to access internett, and for the linux box's external port 1999 to be routed to port 1999 Anyone got any tips?
  5. I have been able to solve the isue, with a lot of help. I downloaded the test kernel source for 2.6.16 and patched the kernel and recompiled. And now I have sound. There has been a fix for this, in the new ALSA release 1.0.11rc3. RC4 is currently out, but not as a RPM. So I guess the issue will be fixed in the next kernel update with the updated ALSA drivers. In the meantime you can go the this post at Fedora Forum and get the patch and recompile the kernel.
  6. I can confirm that this fix did work on my FC5 using 945 chipset.
  7. hijinks, the fedoraforum post is where I got some of the tests etc. So I have read that one, and no effect. The other post was an older version of ALSA-lib and kernel. My problem is that it does recognize the card and codec, but it does not want to give me audio. I have not been able to find any error messages regarding this issue, so the HW seems to be working, system wise.
  8. Yesterday I installed Fedora Core 5 on a notebook, and there is no sound on the notebook. I am not a Linux expert, and it is the first time doing multumedia on a linux installations. The notebook is based on the Intel 945NG Chipset, and utilises the Sigmatel STAC9200 CODEC for HD sound. When I use headphones I can hear a very very faint noise when I play music. When I am unplugging the headphones, there is no sound at all, not that I can hear. All the volume controls have been tested at max, min etc. No change. # lsmod | grep snd snd_hda_intel 21329 4 snd_hda_codec 116033
  9. It will be installed on a Dimension XPS or an Inspiron 630m. I am somewhat courius on the New Fedora. It looks nice, but I am not sure. I did the Linux Distro. Chooser and I got 100% on Madriva, SuSE and Fedora. So it should suit my needs. FC5 is not released for the next 2.5 weeks, so I need to wait. The good thing here is that all is brand new. In the past I have always used KDE (Back when I used Slackware and RedHat back in the late 90s). What is it that makes you want to use Gnome? Design or functions?
  10. Ok, I will scrap my plans for Madriva then. I am however still leaning against SuSE. I need a simple solution to get all of my requirements met. I do have previous knowlege of running Fedora, Core 4, as a webserver. But none as a "home computer". The most important thing for me is that everything works as easily as possible. To see if I am able to use my computer with linux, without any major hickups. Can I delete Windows forever without getting gray hair within the first month? So then my choice is now, Fedora or SuSE. Do you have any pro(s)/con(s)?
  11. I need some help here. I am to install linux and use it full time for the first time in my life. I have in the past used RedHat/Fedora for web server and when SlackWare was in versions 2 and 3 I had them on my DT. But I am somewhat more lazy now, and just want it all to work. I have had some discussions with my friends, and they say that Linux can never replace Windows completely, for the home users. And I agree. But I am at least going to test it. I am going to install either Mandriva or Open SuSE on a laptop. - Any comments on which distro I am to use of these two? - Which is the easi
