Re: [Help] Setting up a low power file/media server
My linux box is essentially a glorified NAS. Sharing's accomplished through Samba, nothing special. I also used to have a Win2k machine whose sole purpose was to play and serve media files. Again, sharing through standard Windows shares. (That machine succumbed to a hardware failure, and was replaced by an Asus O!Play pulling media off the aforementioned linux box and another Windows machine)--

I threw Ubuntu on it yesterday and got Samba working pretty well. Man, Samba sucks to set up. But once it IS set up, it works decently.
I also have Subsonic working, but can't get to it outside the house yet. I'm sure it's a minor config issue somewhere.
Tonight I'm hoping to get the 2TB drives hooked up and I'll go from there.
