Thanks for the info. It does sound like a fun project. I'm leaving for Germany tomorrow. I'll be back as soon as I get internet set up in my apartment.

I agree. Setting up the X Window display setting has always been a PITA. In the early days when you had to manipulate the config file directly with a text editor was very painful. Added to that, you could fry your display if the settings were wrong. That is just one of the boon and/or bane issues of having so many third party graphics cards and displays available for the PC environment.

Apple solved that issue by only allowing and supporting their own hardware. I like Apple's hardware but it does have its limitations and problems, one of which is significantly higher prices.

An experience Linux guru can get just about anything out of a piece of hardware but a newbie may just throw up his hands and go back to WinXX :(

Hi RapidEye,

It looks like an interesting project.

I do have a few initial questions.

1. It has two drive bays. What type and size drives do you have installed? is. Brand and model

2. How old are the drives and how much time do they have on them.

3. Are you going to configure them as Raid 1 or 0?

That is a start. I will download the install software and see what I can figure out in that direction.

I will be traveling to Germany in a day or two. I may be off the net for as much as two weeks. The last time I was over there it took forever to get connected.


In Topic: does anyone like gnome shell/ eg gnome 3

I just read the SolusOS 1 is now released. It uses Gnome for its desktop and is based on Debian Stable.

When I find some time, I'll give Solus a try and let you know what I think.

Here is a link to a procedure using fdisk. A solution like that has worked for me between Win XX and Linux. It might be worth consideration if you are still having problems.
