  1. Docker (unRAID bzimage) + Image / Distro (bzroot) = Appliance Platform Let me help you with that. Using Docker Hub (Appliances) as an example: Slackware = 212 Downloads This includes all whopping 5 of the Slackware images and just 1 App. 4 of those images are done by the same guy too. If you want a good laugh go look at his docker images because he has a picture of himself. Aside from looking like 70s porn actor (typical Slacker guy)... I'm sure that dork is quite the ladies man. Debian = 226,298 Downloads Using just 2 of base Debian Images and none of the THOUSAN
  2. As you see, Docker works the way it is now. However, I suspect that in time with certain apps on certain hardware or certain apps crashing... it can / will be a problem that users can experience. If I was Lime Technologies, I would take matters into my own hands and make sure I allocate a bare minimum for CPU, Disk I/O, Memory, etc. for the Server and if they so desire... Allow users to create groups of their own. Similar to some us who went nuts with NFS tweaking and even unRAID tunables settings. I was making you and needo aware that you should take a look at it (along with Lime Te
  3. A 10 Minute crash course in cgroups: PaaS Under the Hood, Episode 2: cgroups and... Arch Wiki - cgroups
  4. You have to also interface and set up some customized cgroups in Slackware. You will probably want to make those persistent too. You can do this all on your own but it would be best if Lime Technologies was also in the loop. That way both of you can best decide how to proceed (in respect to them handling the Slackware side of things and you Docker side). For people running something like Plex, newznab and when SABnzb is unraring a huge file... They are going to want / need more horsepower than your typical docker app (but not take all the horsepower). But... You do not want a normal
  5. I am not trying to hurt LT nor it's users, quite the contrary. I am HUGE fan of unRAID and want it to be the best NAS product out there. My passion for it shows with all the work I have done, my documentation and my posts. I GREATLY appreciate your work and all that do and I hope you continue. What you have done part time in only a few weeks is nothing short of amazing along with very professional and polished looking. unRAID believes I should go create / play in my own sandbox, I happen to agree with them. I totally disagree. Docker is HUGE and mos
  6. Yeah... I am not going to be able to do it. I use to contribute here (KVM, Xen, XenServer, running unRAID in KVM on openSUSE, PXE Server, etc.) but my contributions / input are no longer wanted here. I think I have a lot of to offer but unRAID sees it another way. I finally got around to attacking Docker (Grumpy Style) and I did it A LOT of things differently than how we are doing it here now. I'm sure unRAID thinks I have this wrong too. 1. Using the wrong image. 2. Using the wrong init script. 3. Looking at this from a container level only and not the bigger picture.
  7. Is that so? How else could I show it without showing a bunch of open windows to show all the various features / functions? Are you are saying that Red Hat (CentOS) has no central Management Tools to manage the OS? If you believe that, you need to put down Slackware, download CentOS 7 and install it. Then get back to me. There are also 20+ Linux OS WebGUI control panels available like Webmin, C-panel, OpenPanel, Kloxo, Vesta, WenYAST, C-Panel (only non-free one), etc. Webmin / Virtualmin has over 100+ Server / Management modules for 100+ apps / functions (90+ unRAID doesn't ha
  8. Are we getting dual (or more) parity drives in unRAID 6? Are we getting metadata checks in unRAID 6? Are we getting encryption in unRAID 6? It's great you are catching up with the competition on multiple filesystems but if I have a drive with XFS or EXT4 stuff on it, will I be able to add it to unRAID without having to format it? I'm not dismissing what you have done but this is 5+ years old technology. Many of us were doing this with unRAID as a VM back in 2009 with ESXi 4 (including Video Card Passthrough). Sure there is a lot more support for hardware / vid
  9. oVirt Supported Hosts: Fedora CentOS Red Hat Scientific Linux CentOS and Scientific Linux are 100% clones of Red Hat. Fedora is Red Hats testing Distro. Debian (experimental) Gentoo (experimental) They have been working on a port for Debian for years and some Linux Hacker has it sorta working in Gentoo (I did the same in Arch Linux). I highly doubt oVirt is every going to make a Slackware version. It makes no business sense because nobody uses Slackware.
  10. Great to hear. I have all the respect in the world and you without a doubt know your stuff. I look forward to seeing what the end result is. It sounds like you plan on having a VM Store. Are you going to be housing / maintaining several ISOs / images for us? <facepalm>
  11. If you buy very specific hardware, go through a 40+ hour training course on KVM or Xen, another 40+ hour course on Linux command line, another 40+ hour course on PCI Passthrough, run 2 cables through your house to a few TVs, plus some cat 5 to USB converters (for a remote)... You could put two video cards in your unRAID server and use those instead of buying a cheap Pi or other cheap ARM plex / xbmc device. Or if you want to run things like a router / firewall (like pfSense) or Windows... You could run it on your unRAID machine. Simply put, its not for normal users unless they have t
  12. Do you have Hardware Video Acceleration working in your XBMCbuntu VM? For many, that is going to be a deal breaker unless you have a beefy server / CPU(s). No love, huh? Why do I even bother....
  13. Did you try this: ? I will create a badass PXE Server that uses Tiny Core Linux and a HTTP Server (faster than tftpboot) for Menus and isos / images. I will work on it tomorrow and post it for all of you to test. Perhaps gfjardim wouldn't mind creating a slick WebGUI for adding / removing images and configuring the PXE Menu. I can get it close but he will need to take it the last mile. NOTE: I am not going to support this long term so one of you will have to take it and own it.
  14. Can't speak for that MSI motherboard but if you want to do PCI Passthrough in the past with MSI... It is one of the worst offenders.
  15. If you are already running Ubuntu as your main OS on a laptop... Docker will probably drive you mad unless you manage your own. We are running a Fork of Fork (Ubuntu>Phusion) and then Needo (who is doing a GREAT job) would have make any changes you want. For example, someone wanted ffmpeg added to one of the Apps. He didn't know how to do it himself in docker so he had to request it, wait for Needo to add it and then reinstall the container. Where as in a VM running a full blown Ubuntu, "apt-get install ffmpeg". Done! Docker is great but if you like to tinker / not depen
