  1. Well, I'm certainly not a lawyer, although I'm sure there are some around (?) While aiming at becoming the Bill Gates Foundation is a bit high (for now ) I don't necessarily agree that you need a ton of money to start. With some exceptions, everything in life come small and grow from there. Just of the top of my head, do you know/are aware of any means to set-up a bitcoin-based foundation-like thing? This would allow us to start without IRS constraints (and forgive my ignorance on this, I barely know the legislation in my country ) What about Kickstarter? We could create an experts
  2. We have PayPal as a base. This should work once Ironic gives us his paypal address. Giving directly to one person is easy. More challenging, how is the money held and who controls it in a collaborative project like this? Do we set up an unRaid Foundation? Going back to the original topic ;-) I really like the unRAID Foundation idea. However, before proceeding with anything I'd like to have the green light from Tom. Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  3. Finka, while I respect your opinion I don't share it. I'm willing to pay more if that helps to move things forward. It could be licensing, donation-ware, you name it. For the same reason I've donated to CP, SB or Wikipedia, among other. I'm sure there are some people like you, and some like me, no judgment attached, and I don't see a valid reason because you and I can't co-exist. And to be clear, I have no affiliation/relationship with grumpy, badger, or ford Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  4. And final post (for now), promised ! Why keep Slackware and not move the whole thing to CentOS (which is leading the poll at this moment)? I'm still talking about an unRAID OS, but by reading this thread my understanding (and please forgive me as I'm no expert), it that Slackware is kind of dead. Shouldn't we steer or efforts for a 64bit OS for a more active distro?
  5. in this community effort for a unRAID OS with KVM, shouldn't we talk also about: an email/notification system a nicer polished webGUI (ie boxcar or simplefeatures) This would certainly round the product, right? And this brings another question: how are we tracking all the good ideas in this thread, could GitHub be used, maybe not for actual development, but at least for tracking purposes.?
  6. So this doesn't get lost in the noise, and since only Ford and Weebo have confirmed their support (sorry if I missed someone else guys ): I'd would gladly contribute in any way I can, being that funds/time/testing or else. And since at the end of the day, this is all about compromise and money talks louder than anything else, should something like http://www.kickstarter.com/ be considered? This is of course something for Tom to manage. It would certainly give us more exposure, and would allow us to use our 'digital-personal-brand' to promote unRAID (is Tom #2 still around?).
  7. My 2 cents: I mainly follow this forum with tapatalk, and you can't see the surveys there. I believe many people don't really understand the potential of this, and those who do might not care much about the OS as long as this is achieved. Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  8. well, that's quite subjective, unless you actually measure it! For me it's quite good though. I'm using noctua fans (3x 120 in the backplane and 2x 80 in the case), but I'm running out of it 8 drives. I also have a small 1U case running 4x 1TB Seagate drives for an Nas4Free file server. And then you have the UPS, which also make some noise. As this is in a small office, I don't really care about noise level so much, but I can tell it certainly quieter than my desktop case (which I'm trying to get rid off going the KVM route)
  9. You are killing me guys, I decided to learn centos and you go with arch ;-)! LOL JK, this is outstanding work indeed. Looking forward to a release! Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  10. +1 I'd rather prefer a server headless install. No need for a desktop, one pci slot more, one gpu less Sent from my GT-P7500 using Tapatalk 2
  11. 1.yes you can, but array will be unprotected 2.what do you mean? Adding a drive, without parity, it's 2 min. Replacing? How do you replace without a parity drive? Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  12. All right, this is it Top to bottom: blank panel, switch, empty (thinking of a patch panel), norco, blank and the UPS Hope you like them! Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  13. I built my rack using steel profiles and enclosed it in an IKEA Expedit desk, shall you be interested, don't mean to hijack the thread Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  14. As stated above, this works: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=20392.msg234649.msg#234649 Sent from my GT-P7500 using Tapatalk 2
  15. You can make it work with scsi disks (i know because I've done it Beta quasi found out how (with some very small tweaking in ESXi) I don't remember the thread but believe it was something related with pvm drivers. Look for that, if you don't find it drop me a line and I'll try to guide you Sent from my GT-P7500 using Tapatalk 2 Yep I have seen that before, but it would be better to work properly without hack/tweak. It's not really a hack, is it? It's the way ESXi works and not really unraid's. Sent from my GT-P7500 using Tapatalk 2
  16. I found it, this is the post : http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=20392.msg234649.msg#234649 All merits to BetaQuasi! Sent from my GT-P7500 using Tapatalk 2

  18. Ok, the mover worked last night at 3.40am as expected. WebGui still shows Monthly/Sunday… I further investigated this and /etc/cron.d contents are: # Generated mover schedule: 40 3 * * * /usr/local/sbin/mover |& logger Final test was to restart the server (there they go my 3 days uptime ). Settings > Share Settings > Mover Settings now show the correct settings (daily at 3.40am). So I guess this is just a pure cosmetic (although misleading ) issue.
  19. I believe this is a bug. I can reproduce it 100% of the time. in Settings > Share Settings > Mover Settings, I have scheduled a daily mover running at 3.40am (default) if I invoke from there the mover by clicking on 'Move now', settings automatically change to Monthly/Sunday/01/01:00. Reloading the page keeps showing this new settings. I have to save again the default settings (daily at 3.40am) so the page shows this parameters. PS: I've left the settings at Monthly/Sunday/01/01:00 to check whether it actually moves the files and this is just a 'cosmetic' issue. I'll

  21. When I came home my server had a red ball in one of the disks (disk 1). I stopped the array, and it wasn't detected, so it should be dead, right? I then took out the disk (norco 4224 case) and put it back. And then, like magic, it was detected again (maybe something got loose?). I run a short SMART test and it passed, so started the array again. But the dreadful red ball indicating a disable disk was still there. I re-started the server (btw, is a virtual machine in ESXi), but the red ball is still there. So I'm puzzled... What should I do? Is the disk really disabled? I can access
