    Xubuntu FTP server help plz

    So i have an old computer that was just lying around, doing nothing and i got bored and wanted to try and make a FTP server with it. I put Xubuntu, because normal ubuntu is too laggy and it just breaks it. I have got it set up so it works with file explorer in windows, but i want it to display the amount of storage it has, and has left, you know, like it does when you plug a USB stick in, or with your internal HDD/SSD, as shown in the picture that is hopefully going to attach if i can remember. As you can see in the image, the server does not show the blue bar thing and or the storage. Issue #2: When i try and view say, a video or picture off the server, it re-downloads it onto the device, is there anyway i can get it to just stream to the device?

  5. I have just got a google home mini today, and i have had my chromecast (I think its gen 1) for quite a while. when i go "Ok google, play ______ on my T.V" it says there is no chromecast linked with my account. When i check on my google home app, it is picking up the chromecast. Now, i have an extender which gives off 2 signals: 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, the chromecast is connected to 2.4 and the home is connected to 5, does this have anything to do with it?

    First Build Plan. Any Suggestions?

    Oh okay, I'd say the motherboard is a bit overkill, you could save some money and maybe get a slightly better GPU or something, not that the GPU isn't good cos it will handle almost all games just fine but might be worth a different motherboard. Also, 32GB RAM is a bit overkill 16 GB will be just fine for all games, I've never really encountered a game that's needed more than 16.

    Turn motherboard on with no processor?

    Oh, okay that's mildly annoying. Do u have any cheap AM3+ CPU's to recommend me buying to test it?

    First Build Plan. Any Suggestions?

    It depends what you want the PC for? gaming, streaming, workstation ect. For anything you should remember is DONT FORGET TO PUT THE IO SHIELD IN haha the amount of times I have done this haha.
  9. I want to see if a motherboard is working, but I don't have a CPU, GPU or ram that fits it, I was wondering if I could turn it on without anything connected, just the 24-pin power. I'm not expecting much to happen, obviously, but would I at least get an error message on the screen or something.
  10. haha hopefully i can i've not soldered in a while haha
  11. I'll probably try that if i cant fix it but theres no places like that near me. I do have the equipment for it I could proabbly do it ive fixed things like this before.
  12. It is a broken motherboard my mate gave me cos I have next to no money so i'm gonna try and fix it.
  13. I might just redo all the damaged connections and then if that doesn't work then i'll try and buy the schematics which is gonna be an absolute pain
  14. Does anyone know if it is possible to get the schematics of a motherboard I want to repair? I think I have found the problem (corroded connection) but I need the schematics so I can tell where the corroded connection goes and what voltage is supposed to be going through it. The motherboard is an Asus M5A78L-M PLUS.
