  1. Are the browser and the unRAID IP in the same subnet. Cheers.
  2. I'm guessing that the USB is in passthrough mode. Cheers.
  3. Try this, with the USB mounted when you boot: Hit whatever key brings up the boot menu, that allows you to override the BIOS order. Is the USB there. If not, are the hard drives listed individually, or grouped. If grouped, then expand that group. That's where I found the USB to boot from, although I never found a way to permanently set that in the BIOS. Cheers.
  4. ::jawdrop:: I almost wouldn't have believed you if I didn't just observe the same behavior. Neither did anyone on the hardware board I posted some questions on. I almost got laughed off it for suggesting that memtest didn't catch the errors. Luckily my memory was all Corsair, so I RMA'd the pair that I think were bad, after using prime95 to determine. Google it. It's the top entry. Cheers.
  5. If the RAM were bad, it would show up in a memtest. Any memory error, ever, is indicative of a module that should be thrown out / RMA'd. I wouldn't be so sure of that. I was getting a lot of single bit errors when calculating checksums using md5deep. I could run the same disk numerous times, and get different files failing each time. memtest+ ran for 48 hours without error, but throwing prime95 onto my system, and running the Blend test blew up within 5 minutes. Cheers.
  6. Sorry I wasn't a clear as I should have been. "Static" is a volume label I have assigned to one of the partitions on that particular drive. Depending on the filesystem used, the commands to set that vary slightly. Google it, based on the filesystem used and "label". So breaking down what I have gives: mkdir /mnt/Static Create a directory to mount a partition. mount -L Static /mnt/Static Mount the partition labelled Static. The beauty here is, that is doesn't care which physical device is being used. hdparm -S 180 <device> Set the spindown time for this device. `blkid -l -o device -t LABEL=Static | head -c 8` Execute these commands which will return the actual device where the partition labelled "Static" resides. *** Update *** I just noticed that you had said: So, to label it use: reiserfstune -l <label> <device> Cheers.
  7. And here's the contents of my go script, which doen't need to know the actual /dev/sdx point: # Assign my static disk mkdir /mnt/Static mount -L Static /mnt/Static # Set it to spin down hdparm -S 180 `blkid -l -o device -t LABEL=Static | head -c 8` The extra disk has a label set of "Static"" Cheers.
  8. I'll assume that you mean 80, and not 81, as that's what the webserver listens on. But are you certain about that: That shows that port 22 is also forwarded. Cheers.
  9. He wouldn't have to, it's there already. Although he never did explain fully if he was using this to publish the IP of his unRAID box, or his router front-ending it, because he does mention he has one. Cheers.
  10. I couldn't find a log posted in any of the earlier posts to verify. But unRAID doesn't have ssh enabled by default. But it does have unsecured telnet access. Cheers.
  11. I recently went from 8GB to 12GB when I found 4 2GB sticks in my spares cupboard. root@The-Vault:~# free -lm total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 11417 10687 729 0 79 10197 Low: 790 441 348 High: 10627 10246 380 -/+ buffers/cache: 410 11006 Swap: 3906 0 3906 root@The-Vault:~# egrep 'High|Low' /proc/meminfo HighTotal: 10882120 kB HighFree: 309136 kB LowTotal: 808972 kB LowFree: 357752 kB root@The-Vault:~# I also have swap space set up, which shows minimal usage: root@The-Vault:~# swapon -s Filename Type Size Used Priority /dev/sdb2 partition 4000180 28 -1 root@The-Vault:~# Cheers.
  12. Unless the application needs a change in the kernel configuration, which none of the ones I use have, thankfully, then I've found this to be the easiest way to add them to unRAID. If you need any normal Slackware packages that are not installed, then just download them, from the Slackware site, and put them in /boot/extra. On the next boot, they will be installed. For other applications check if a Slackware package has been built, either via the applications own website, or one of the other sites that specialise in maintaining Slack packages. Failing that, then use a second Slack installation, I use a virtual one, to build your own Slack package, to put in /boot/extra. There are plenty of sites that will show how this is done, or modify an existing Slack build script. You will also have to make sure that any updates to configuration files are also written back to a directory on the flash, and re-installed at each boot. Note: This only works for 32-bit setups, as that's what unRAID is. Cheers.
  13. No, no parity sync running. Just the pre-clears. Cheers.
  14. I didn't think I was. How would I tell. Are you suggesting that it could have been the reason for the spindown messages. Cheers.
