  1. Thanks. I managed to install it. Turns out the podman package was for something else. I am receiving an error when trying to login through the interface, but I think I'll just join the discord from now on to avoid opening topic after topic. Thank you for your time.
  2. Space isn't an issue, since the hard drive has 500 GBs, and this is intented to just run a media server. That leaves me with the second part of the question, though. I don't know if the cockpit-podman needs anything else to work.
  3. This is pretty much a follow-up for this topic, but I'll put some context here as well. I decided to use Linux server as an operating system for a NAS station. I was even given clear instructions on how to install everything. The Linux installation wend down without any issue. However, I got into an issue when trying to install cockpit. This is the advice I was given: The problem was that the cockpit-docker package couldn't be located. After doing a bit of research, I found out that cockpit-docker was discontinued in favor of something called cockpit-podman. I reckon the podman version can work just as well for having a web UI for my server, but does that man I have to remove the docker.io package and install something else? This is the very first time I'm operating with Ubuntu server. I know nothing about it...
  4. OK, then... I'll take this route, and mark this one as solved. If I encounter further issues, I'll be sure to create a topic in the appropriate section. Thank you very much for your time.
  5. Given the extra possibilities, I'm more inclined to just go with Linux. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
  6. the UEFI sees both USB drives (the installer and the destination drive), but none of them seemed to be bootable. Now after I gave it a thought, I can definitely see myself using this unit for other things (small game servers and such), so I'll be looking into Linux. Is there a version that works with no UI, just like FreeNAS, on which you also install cockpit? Sorry, I really know nothing about it. If you have some materials that can get me started, I'd really appreciate it. I just tested the TV app. Unfortunately it seems to behave the same way with those movies. This kind of display goes on and off throughout the movie. Again, loading the movie in the TV's default player works just fine. This only happens with some of the HDR movies. Most of the content can be viewed without issues. Anyway, Emby does seem more responsive and has more user friendly features, so I think I'll stick with it.
  7. It's kinda hard to read, because there are 2 rows of text that keep getting spammed. Before that spam, it does say that the kernel cannot be loaded (or something along those lines) I have zero experience with Linux, to be honest. I only wondered through its UI for a few minutes at some point, but that's it. I can look into this option as well, though. Any further details would be appreciated. I've just read through some FreeNAS tutorials, and I'm kinda bummed, cause i know nothing about jails or how they work. Is Linux easier to set up for PLEX or Emby? As for the software itself, so far, I've tested the windows version of the PLEX server and it seems to work just fine. The TV app, though seems to have issues reading some of the movies I have. Playing the movies through the app sometimes gives rainbow colors on the screen (like In the image I attached). Playing those movies through the TV's default player works just fine. If I can't get that thing to work, I'll give Emby a go as well.
  8. You got that one wrong. It's not 1 GB of RAM for every TB. It's 1 GB of RAM for every hard drive used. You can read the detailed requirements here. Basically, the minimum amount of RAM required is 8 GBs. It will probably need more if you use more hard drives and you plan to install virtual machines or several additional plugins.
  9. Hey there! So I just finished assembling the build you see in the image below. For those curious, it's fitted with a Celeron G4930 3.2 GHz CPU and 8 GBs DDR4 Its purpose is mainly to serve as a PLEX server. I could use some advice regarding the OS. From what I've read FreeNAS (or TrueNAS Core) is popular. I tried installing it using a bootable USB to another USB that would basically serve as hard drive, but the installer kept failing to boot. I'd like to know if it's possible to install FreeNAS on a USB drive using another computer, and just plugging the destination drive to the new rig. If it's not possible, I guess I'll have to borrow an optical drive. Also, are there any better alternatives than FreeNAS? I'm trying to make this rig consume as less power as possible, so I'm open to any suggestions.
  10. After further testing, I came to the conclusion that the switch was being weird. I had to manually set the connection to 100 MF on the switch for TV to negotiate properly, but even after that, the download remained below 10 Mbps, while upload reached around 80 Mbps. Eventually, I decided to reset the switch to its factory settings. After setting it up again, all the devices, including the TV negotiated properly. Now the TV seems to get the intended speeds. Both Plex and Netflix are working fine. And after upgrading its Ethernet drivers, the secondary PC also reaches the desired speeds. So... problems solved, I guess.
  11. There isn't one. But how come it manages to take 100 Mbps with the router directly?
  12. OK, I just brought up my laptop to test its connection. I used the cable that was connecting the TV to the switch, and I had a green led with it. 1000 Mpbs connection rate, no issues. But if I use that same cable for the TV, I get a 10 Mbps connection rate. That's not enough for the intended purposes, cause I get stuck in buffering, on both Netflix and my home Plex server. I have tested 3 different cables and got the same results. You'd think the PC doesn't take more the 10 Mbps, but if I connect it directly to the router, movie streaming works flawlessly. What am I missing here?
  13. Actually the PC is older and its adapter doesn't support more than 100Mbps speed. Still, I don't actually require those speeds for the PC. The duplex was set to auto, and I manually configured it to 100 full. The test results haven't changed, and the monitor panel shows the same connect rates. My TV is connected to the 5 GHz Network. I can't find the actual specs for its network adapter, but I'll assume it's 100Mb, since 4K content doesn't require more than 30 Mbps If you can find more info, my TV is an LG E9 55. The wireless connection runs just fine. It's just that I'd rather avoid putting too much wear on the router's wireless module.
  14. Good question. The apartment wiring actually has CAT5e, since it does support 1Gbps speeds. My bad there, I forgot about this particular differentiation. Already tried multiple cables. The last particular cable is one I previously used between the router and the TV. Works flawlessly. I even took a picture of the switch with that cable plugged in. It's a gigabit speed cable, and the led is still yellow. You'll have to be more specific with that one. My port setting panel looks like this, at the moment: With the cable plugged as they are in the picture above. Edit: I can now confirm clearly that the speed is actually limited to 10. I went to the monitoring page: I got rid of one unused cable and did a cable test: The cables don't seem to have issues.
