I am looking to put together a media server. The plan is to use it as a NAS with enough power to actually transcode HD content. It won't be used for anything else really. Just storing a ton of crap, accessing files through my desktop, and streaming through my ps3, roku, & laptop.
I tried updating my machine, to Ubuntu 13.10.
After update, when I restarted my machine, there was no GUI (no login screen), but I could access terminal, and see my files and folders.
Tried various online advice, but to no avail.
It looks like its only Desktop Environment problem. Can I install any (light weight) desktop environment, via offline method.
I'm not finding a lot of direction on this subject.
I have a standard ubuntu 14.04 machine. I use it daily under the user mh00h. Now lets say I'm interested in using this machine as a production server. How do I manage file permissions for Django and Nginx?
Nginx is currently configured to run under the www:data:www:data user and group.
I plan on getting an acer c7 chromebook and installing Ubuntu on it. I don't plan on using a desktop environment much, expect for playing games. My plan is to setup a server with Ubuntu, virtualgl, wine, and some games. Then I want to use turbovnc to remotely connect to play games.
Do I need a specific desktop environment, like gnome, kde, xfce, etc. to do this?
