Finally moving to Linux

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 

For weeks I've been pondering moving my Plex server over to Linux because of the direction M$py are taking as a first step in moving entirely to Linux and a few hours ago I installed Mint 18.1 on the Plex server and it went wonderfully.

 

I am well aware that Mint isn't a server distro, it comes with loads of bloat installed but one important difference between Mint and other distro's is that a lot of distro's need to be rebooted after updating. Mint doesn't need updating and I am so paranoid about stability that I am only allowing the most stable updates so as to ensure 100% uptime. But the most important reason I chose it is because I am familiar with it and my priorities are Samba, VBox and remote control (using TeamViewer right now).

 

I have tried Manjaro, Arch, OpenSuse, CentOS, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu Server and even Puppy. I really like Puppy but package management isn't easy and a lot of the software is outdated so I didn't think it was that useful. If I figure out how to install the latest versions of VBox, TeamViewer and other software I will gladly switch over to Puppy because it's light (80MB RAM on startup, sexy)  and really easy to set up (Samba is hilariously easy).

 

This is still an experiment and nothing will be lost as all of my critical things are isolated in VBox and in fact I didn't even need to install Samba in Mint as it's installed in the VBox VM's I have but I prefer to do it this way than have VBox act as a layer between the server and my system.

 

My goals now:

- migrate everything from NTFS to EXT4 or Btrfs

- learn how to use VNC

- set up SnapRAID

- master Linux and then possibly move to a different OS

 

What does surprise me is how much progress has been made with NTFS. Last year it was still very slow with read/writes at times at sub 50MBps but now it's at a full Gigabit and that is just wonderful.

 

For my desktop I won't use Mint or any Ubuntu distro as I want to get a second GPU and pass my 290 through to Windows just for gaming and use a very low power and cheap GPU for my every day tasks in Linux. So, I want to learn how to use Fedora as Fedora makes passthrough really easy compared with the disaster that is Ubuntu.

 

I do have a lot to learn still but hope, with the help of these forums and you guys, I will master Linux slowly.

The girlfriend.

What didn't you like about Manjaro? I remember you tried it but I can't remember why you moved on from it...

I'm curious what you are using virtual box for on the server. If you are doing linux vms then I would suggest going to Ubuntu lts and try lxd containers. Is how I run my 4 minecraft servers and couldn't be happier. I get full bare metal performance in an isolated container. For Windows vms I would look at qemu kvm. Either way Mint is a good starting point but if you want to switch to linux for a server then my suggestion is to do it right the first time, don't use the gui. Install Ubuntu server, or better yet Debian depending on what packages you want and run it that way. Save all your hardware resources for things you actually need.

Welcome to the party! When I got serious about using Linx I started on Mint and moved to Arch. That will likely stay as my home for now. Sadly I have to keep Windows around for my gaming needs. I just flat can not get Linux to do what windows does with triple screen gaming, plus a fourth display, and SLI. Between xorg and Nvidia there are too many blocks preventing me from getting things to work. But, I do most everything else non gaming on my laptop. I am hoping Wayland or something will eventually solve my multiscreen issues so I can dump Windows 100%.

I have been running my plex server off my FreeNAS box. Since that is FreeBSD based it's sort of in the Linux family. Shares some roots at least. biggrin.gif

So much this. I game on both but wish I could ditch Windows completely.

I actually game with Linux as the host OS, and virtualize Windows in KVM/QEMU. It lets me have WIndows have nothing to spy on - all my web browsing and non-gaming activity practically is in Linux. One has to do PCIe passthrough to have acceptable performance though, and that's a bit tricky to set up at first. Here's the guide I used:

I just block all the IP's in the windows firewall and my router to prevent things from getting out. Between that, antibeacon, and destroy windows 10 spying I have cut network traffic to near zero from the gaming rig. The only service I let through is updates, mainly for security updates. Since it's a purely gaming OS, I am not overly concerned with it. I dual boot into my semi janky Arch desktop. lol But, I rarely use it even. If I am not gaming I am on the laptop. Like right now. And it's running Arch as well. I could do the VM thing, but that still won't solve my particular issues. So, till we get better multi-monitor and multi-GPU support, I will be dual booting. Sadly.

Well, my laptop is a Chromebook (a good one though, ASUS Chromebook Flip - runs Android too and is a 2-in-one), and I prefer to do most of my email and browsing on my desktop. I'm in Linux in it right now, and if I want to run a game, I fire up or switch to (if already running) the virtual Windows machine without dual-booting, reaching for another computer, or interrupting what I'm doing significantly. It's very productive, and very secure and fun. smile.gif

I see though you have two Titan X's, passing through both of those might be very very tricky.... frown.gif

Either you were using some ancient kernel/driver or there was something wrong about the specific NTFS setup. At least with NTFS-3G there has been no major performance improvement in that area for a long time.
