  1. Those following the 6.9-beta releases have been witness to an unfolding schism, entirely of my own making, between myself and certain key Community Developers. To wit: in the last release, I built in some functionality that supplants a feature provided by, and long supported with a great deal of effort by @CHBMB with assistance from @bass_rock and probably others. Not only did I release this functionality without acknowledging those developers previous contributions, I didn't even give them notification such functionality was forthcoming. To top it off, I worked with a

  3. Welcome (again) to 6.9 release development! This release marks hopefully the last beta before moving to -rc phase. The reason we still mark beta is because we'd like to get wider testing of new multiple-pool feature, as well as perhaps sneak in a couple more refinements. With that in mind, the obligatory disclaimer: Important: Beta code is not fully tested and not feature-complete. We recommend running on test servers only! That said, here's what's new in this release... Multiple Pools This features permits you to define up to 35 named po

  5. As always, prior to updating, create a backup of your USB flash device: "Main/Flash/Flash Device Settings" - click "Flash Backup". Besides bug fixing, most of the work in this release is related to upgrading to the Linux 5.9 kernel where, due to kernel API changes, it has become necessary to move device spin-up/down and spin-up group handling out of the md/unraid driver and have it handled entirely in user space. This also let us fix an issue where device spin-up of devices in user-defined pools was executed serially instead of in parallel. We should also now be able

  6. I've have been following this and the other thread with very mixed feelings and I feel the community is unjustly hard towards @limetech. Sure some things could have been handled better, yet I keep the feelings that the bigger injustice is not actually committed by him. In order to understand things better and to see things from a different perspective I personally like to make analogies. Sometimes it gives different insights into situations. And I cam up with the following for this one: We have 3 parties here, The parent (@limetech), the uncle (@CHBMB and the like) and the kid

  7. I come here to see what's new in development and find that there is a big uproar. Hate to say it, but I've been here a long time and community developers come and go and that's just the way it is. This unRAID product opens the door to personalizations, both private and shared. Community developers do leave because they feel that unRAID isn't going in the direction they want it to go or that the unRAID developers aren't listening to them even though there is no obligation to do so. Some leave in a bigger fuss than others. The unRAID developers do the best they can at trying to create a product

  8. I’ve been around a little while. I always follow the boards even though I have very little life time to give to being active in the community anymore. I felt the need to post to say I can completely appreciate how the guys at @linuxserver.io feel. I was lucky enough to be apart of the team @linuxserver.iofor a short while and I can personally attest to how much personal time and effort they put into development, stress testing and supporting their developments. While @limetech has developed a great base product i think it’s right to acknowledge that much of the

  10. I do not use any of these unofficial builds, nor do i know what they are about and what features they provide that are not included in stock unraid. That being said, i still feel that devs that release them have a point. I think the main issue are these statements by @limetech : "Finally, we want to discourage "unofficial" builds of the bz* files." which are corroborated by the account of the 2019 pm exchange: "concern regarding the 'proliferation of non-stock Unraid kernels, in particular people reporting bugs against non-stock builds.'"

  11. New in this release: GPU Driver Integration Unraid OS now includes selected in-tree GPU drivers: ast (Aspeed), i915 (Intel), amdgpu and radeon (AMD). These drivers are blacklisted by default via 'conf' files in /etc/modprobe.d: /etc/modprobe.d/ast.conf /etc/modprobe.d/amdgpu.conf /etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf Each of these files has a single line which blacklists the driver, preventing it from being loaded by the Linux kernel. However it is possible to override the settings in these files by creating the directory 'config/modprobe.d' on

  12. Hey Guys, First of all, I know that you're all very busy on getting version 6.8 out there, something I'm very much waiting on as well. I'm seeing great progress, so thanks so much for that! Furthermore I won't be expecting this to be on top of the priority list, but I'm hoping someone of the developers team is willing to invest (perhaps after the release). Hardware and software involved: 2 x 1TB Samsung EVO 860, setup with LUKS encryption in BTRFS RAID1 pool. ### TLDR (but I'd suggest to read on anyway 😀) The image file mounted as a loop devic

If you only want to use your Nvidia graphics card for a VM then don't install this Plugin! Discussions about modifications and/or patches that violates the EULA of the driver are not supported by me or anyone here, this could also lead to a take down of the plugin itself! Please remember that this also violates the forum rules and will be removed! Installation of the Nvidia Drivers (this

  14. So there is actually a credits page in the Unraid webGui, but right now we only list the people who've directly contributed to code that lives inside the OS itself, not plugins, containers, or other 3rd party modifications. But having a place on either the website or another spot that can showcase our community and the developers that participate here isn't a bad idea!

  16. I know this likely won't matter to anyone but I've been using unraid for just over ten years now and I'm very sad to see how the nvidia driver situation has been handled. While I am very glad that custom builds are no longer needed to add the nvidia driver, I am very disappointed in the apparent lack of communication and appreciation from Limetech to the community members that have provided us with a solution for all the time Limetech would not. If this kind of corporate-esque "we don't care" attitude is going to be adopted then that removes an important differentiating factor betwee

  17. Welcome to 6.9 beta release development! This initial -beta1 release is exactly the same code set of 6.8.3 except that the Linux kernel has been updated to 5.5.8 (latest stable as of this date). We have only done basic testing on this release; normally we would not release 'beta' code but some users require the hardware support offered by the latest kernel along with security updates added into 6.8. Important: Beta code is not fully tested and not feature-complete. We recommend running on test servers only! Unfortunately none of our out-of-tree drivers wil

We (Royal we) bang on (quite rightly) about our community and how supportive, inclusive, helpful and respectful it is. Values really that any organisation in the world would be lucky for its members to behave consistent with. Saying that, this situation has shown that there is an undercurrent of what I can only call bitterness and to some extent entitlement in some community members.

  23. Back in the saddle ... Sorry for the long delay in publishing this release. Aside from including some delicate coding, this release was delayed due to several team members, chiefly myself, having to deal with various non-work-related challenges which greatly slowed the pace of development. That said, there is quite a bit in this release, LimeTech is growing and we have many exciting features in the pipe - more on that in the weeks to come. Thanks to everyone for their help and patience during this time. Cheers, -Tom IMPORTANT: This is Beta software. We recommend runni

The process was smooth and I see no stability or performance issue after 48h, following these steps : - Disable auto-start on "nvidia aware" containers (Plex and F@H for me) - Stop all containers - Disable Docker engine - Stop all VMs (none of them had a GPU passthrough) - Disable VM Manager - Remove Unraid-Nvidia plugin - Upgrade to 6.9.0-beta35 with Tools>Update OS - Reboot - Install Nvidia Drivers plugin from CA (be patient and wait

  27. As a user of Unraid I am very scared about the current trends. Unraid as a base it is a very good server operating system but what makes it special are the community applications. I would be very sad if this breaks apart because of maybe wrong or misunderstandable communication. I hope that everyone will get together again. For us users you would make us all a pleasure. I have 33 docker containers and 8 VM running on my system and I hope that my system will continue to be as usable as before. I have many containers from linuxserver.io. I am grateful for th

  28. SSD support in Linux and associated file systems has been in place quite a while and is quite mature at this point. However don't be so quick to discount advances in spinners - that industry is not going away quietly and probably will be several years before we see the last of them. With 6.9 we have introduced "multiple pools". At present this only supports btrfs pools but much of the underlying work has been done to support other types of pools (that is, formatted with a file system other than btrfs). Along with this, it gives us a path to generalize pools further and let you

  31. At times you will want to "hide" devices from Unraid so that they can be passed through to a VM. Unraid Prior to 6.7 In the past (pre Unraid 6.7) we would stub the device by adding a Vendor:Device code to the vfio-pci.ids parameter in Syslinux, something like this: append vfio-pci.ids=8086:1533 This worked, but had several downsides: If you have multiple devices with the same Vendor:Device code, all of them would be stubbed (hidden) from Unraid It is a fairly technical process to find the right Vendor:Device code and modify the syslinux file.

  32. Hello, long time no see. I am truly sorry to see so many of you have had an issue with this plugin, and it was not my intention to abandon it for as long as I have. Sadly, life had other plans (as it often does). I've recently found myself with time to tinker again, and as such I've released an update that does a few things to try and address some of the issues I am aware of. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to replicate many of the issues others are having, so my ability to test has been limited. I also can see that the operation of some of the advanced functions isn't imme

  35. I'm using Unraid for a while now and collected some experience to boost the SMB transfer speeds: 1.) Choose the right CPU The most important part is to understand that SMB is single-threaded. This means SMB uses only one CPU core to transfer a file. This is valid for the server and the client. Usually this is not a problem as SMB does not fully utilize a CPU core (except of real low powered CPUs). But Unraid adds, because of the ability to split shares across multiple disks, an additional process called SHFS and its load raises proportional to the transfer speed, which could over

  36. This is true. Unfortunately communicating development plans like this (ad hoc, not centralized) is probably not the best way to go about it. Rest assured that Tom's post here was only the first step. Him and I have been having conversations about how we can better engage with the community beyond just this issue. Expect to see another post from me sometime this week with more details on this. At the end of the day we all realize how vital our community is to our continued success. I just hope that everyone can appreciate how big this community really is now, because managing expectations

  37. You know you could have discussed this with me right? Remember me, the original dev, along with @bass_rock! The one you tasked @jonp to discuss how we achieved the Nvidia builds back in December last year? That I never heard anything more about. I'm the one that spend 6 months f**king around with Unraid to get the GPU drivers working in docker containers. The one that's been hosting literally 100s of custom Unraid builds for the community to use for nearly five years. With all due respect to @ich777 he wasn't the one who did the bulk of the work here.

  38. Changes vs. 6.9.0-beta29 include: Added workaround for mpt3sas not recognizing devices with certain LSI chipsets. We created this file: /etc/modprobe.d/mpt3sas-workaround.conf which contains this line: options mpt3sas max_queue_depth=10000 When the mpt3sas module is loaded at boot, that option will be specified. If you add "mpt3sas.max_queue_depth=10000" to syslinux kernel append line, you can remove it. Likewise, if you manually load the module via 'go' file, can also remove it. When/if the mpt3sas maintainer fixes the core issue in the driver we'll get rid of thi

I use the regular Plex docker container for HW transcoding (adding --runtime=nvidia in the extra parameters and setting properly the two container variables NVIDIA_VISIBLE_DEVICES and NVIDIA_DRIVER_CAPABILITIES).

We didn't include the Nvidia vendor driver built-in to the release for several reasons: The package is very large, over 200MB and no need for everyone to download this thing if they don't need it.
