News and Updates / Re: Major news: Announcing NZFS (Not ZFS)

Probably a bit early to ask but will NZFS be free for linux (debian) private use?

RAID-F on Linux / MountManager [for mountpoints]
« on: November 10, 2011, 07:41:51 pm »
If you have many Disks/Partitions MountManager can make creating mount points easier. It gives many details and allows you to specify mount points.

It's available in the Ububtu Software Centre/Synaptic

RAID-F on Linux / Re: Starting and stopping Flexraid
« on: November 10, 2011, 05:18:29 am »
@atiinola Thanks for pointing that out.

@b-earl I'm using ubuntu 64 and I'm a super n00b. AND have brain damage from vaccinations.

I am still testing FlexRAID.

As far as I understand ./FlexRAID &
./ is because FlexRAID is not in the PATH
& is to run in background
so add flexraid to PATH and then it will work.

as to how to stop properly?
-just close window
-type exit then enter
- Ctrl+c   > probably not
 I don't know. I'd like to see how to do this without the start-stop daemon script.

I was looking for a HDD review site and found this. It's nice and simple and thought I'd share

RAID-F on Linux / Re: Help with Ubuntu setup
« on: October 08, 2011, 05:43:02 pm »
Thanks xliv, Brahim
The pdf made things easier.

I think my mistake was trying to use folders as part of the storage pool. You can only use a full partition as part of the storage pool?

It's only with raid that you can use folders.

RAID-F on Linux / Help with Ubuntu setup
« on: October 07, 2011, 11:31:37 pm »
FlexRAID sounds great so I've installed it on Ubuntu
The install was ok. Hoping for a package install one day  :P

I've started an initial test setup starting with storage pool and I need help.
These are the only setting I've added.

Unique Volumes:
/media/72/FR/disk1/
/media/73/FR/disk2/

Mount Point:
/media/raidz

Is this ok?  How do I create the mount point?> create raidz directory and edit fstab?

Thanks for any help.

News and Updates / Re: FlexRAID in Cruise Control
« on: October 04, 2011, 08:43:56 pm »
Thanks Brahim, Cruise control sounds great.
I'm so looking forward to using FlexRAID real time on a dual boot Ubuntu/winpoo7 machine. I have not installed FR... yet. With Cruise control working in linux, I'd install it instantly.

My suggestion is for Linux and that the disks in the storage pool only mount when you use them and you can umount them when you want but also have an option to automount on startup.
 
extra note off topic but.... I've waited years for something like FlexRAID. I've done the CD then DVD with par files. Then later  used DVDisaster which is painfully time consuming. To think with FR all I have to do is buy a new larger HDD every few years is a dream come true. I think people are archiving more and more and done properly, if you can combine it with many different systems, FlexRAID will change the way the average user stores data... and then learns to create a media server.
