Hi everyone! xubuntu 15.10 come on raid0 and encryption make me re-think ubuntu-base responsive. I have few small ssds around and I need a bigger storage on the boot drive that why I pick raid0 to combine for storage, I am no really looking for speed on this set-up. about the encryption is for security reason in-case of lost or stolen computer make me not worry for un-authorize access data. so we start like this: In case if you just want on a single disk you can get xubuntu iso from http://xubuntu.org/getxubuntu/#regularand install. now, you want raid0, get the iso on from ubuntu server 15.10 at http://releases.ubuntu.com/15.10/ubuntu-15.10-server-amd64.iso.torrentand make iso boot-able to install server first. on the server install first drive, partition a /boot for 500MB as ext4, the rest of drive for a partition for hardware raid. the second drive and third drive is 1 partition for hardware raid. configure those raid as raid0 or whatever level you like, then make its to encryption ( chose a 20 to 30 characters pharepass for high security) configure that encryption to LVM then make 1 group that could contain root, swap, and home. then format and mount its according to its set-up. now install as regular server, may chose its as ssh server, create user... done, reboot then to add xubuntu GUI to its. update sudo apt-get update sudo systemctl enable ufw ( for firewall auto start) sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ( it may take a-while for 500MB download and extract plus install) done and reboot, login and install following as optional sudo apt-get install vlc sshguard fail2ban sudo systemctl disable sshd ( to stop ssh to your server) turn out I can't disable sshd so I remove it it instead sudo apt-get purge openssh-server you may want to install compton to reduce screen-tearing. sudo apt-get install comtpon ( use it with file I attach) Xubuntu 15.10 have a great performment, fast cut and paste file to samba as 50 MB/s. have fun and enjoy. Edit: somehow the compton setting, it is best with radeon graphics card, mine is radeon 7950 and 8750, its provide no tearing at all. On the nvidia GTX-660ti, still has tearing and cpu process goes much higher on the same application. compton.zip
