  1. for anyone struggling with the same problem. make sure to  remove the plugins manually from /boot/config/plugins and remove all packages from /boot/packages.  nerdpack and devpack were bugging out for me and removing the plugins did not actually remove them from the plugins folder and removing the packages in the webui did not remove them from the packages folder either. don't forget to give it a reboot afterwards.

  2. i'm a third year computer science student and  am well aware of the usage of most packages of both nerdpack and devpack . but having to go back and install every package when i needed them seemed tedious so i just installed them all . which worked fine for years . you were however right on the money and as soon as i uninstalled nerd pack poweroff worked as intended  . after a reinstall of nerdpack i made a carefull selection of commonly used packages this time.  dev pack however is still bugging out for me. even after a reinstall.


    thx for the second pair of eyes.


  3. this error occurs when shutting down using theither poweroff or powerdown as well as shutting down using the webgui or short pressing the power button.  reboot however works just fine. i'm on the latest stable unraid release. 


    reinstalling the powerdown utility also does not seem to help permanently




    thx for any help in advance


  4. Thx for the second pair of eyes. i'm not sure how the files got on the array without the mover passing them from the cache first but just to verify i synced the cache and the array folder first using rsync which completed in under a second . so i'm sure both cache and array are identical.  then i deleted the Media folder of the cache. clearing up about 500GB.

  5. hello peeps,

    I seem to be having a problem with the mover refusing to move files from cache to the array. i have tried with a schedule, manually through the webgui and using the terminal through the "mover" command. none seem to actually empty the cache.

    I'm pretty sure the usb stick is not the problem since it hasn't been used for very long yet.


    attached are the diagnostics.


    thx for the help,




  6. Hey Josh,


    I seem to be having some trouble with transcoding to hevc using the "Video Encoder H265/HEVC - hevc_qsv (Intel)" plugin . It transcodes the files to hevc perfectly but  when playing them back using either vlc over the network or plex using the media player . there is significant visual corruption present. My cpu is a i5-11400 with 16 GB of ram and i am running the latest stable unraid version with the adde doption of  options i915 force_probe=4c8b in the i915.conf file . when setting the transcode plugin to cpu  the entire pluginflow works flawlessly .so i'm curious as to what the problem is. because i couldn't find anything about this reported anywhere.


    thanks for the input



  7. Shame that there isn't any support for it in Unraid. Waiting for Limetech to include it in Unraid is probably going to take too long. Going to see if iI still can anyway. Might be usefull for other people looking to use the same chip. Going to try and see if I can get a SFP+ to ethernet adapapter on the cheap through ebay.


    The 1.8 Ghz is probably because it's reporting the base clock. Thx for the info going to see if mine is just as fast :)


    Thx for the help

  8. Greetings fellow Unraiders(?),


    I recently bought a server from Bargainhardware in the UK to replace the old one i had. On the back is 1 Ethernet managment port so no ethernet from that. And a SFP+ port. The problem is that SFP+ to ethernet converters are quite expensive. Therefore I decided to go another route, which is ethernet over usb. For this I selected the TP-link UE300 adapter which has linux OS support. (yay linux support)


    So, got home, plugged in the adapter but nothing happened. The ethernet port showed connection, the usb adapter showed connection but Unraid refused to connect.


    Tried a couple of usb ports, different ethernet ports. Still nothing. Decided to install ubuntu on a seperate disk to ensure it was indeed working. Of course the adapter then decided to work like a charm. ubuntu showed it working under the CDC_ethernet driver. Not sure if this driver is available on Unraid.


    Coming back to my question. Is there any way to get this working on Unraid?


    Unraid version: 6.3.4


    cpu: 2* intel xeon e5-2650

    ram: 32 GB

    ethernet chip: 82599 (maybe important?)

    drives: 2*3TB 3*1TB 1*500GB cache

    motherboard: not quite sure
