Ubuntu install checklist

Check list when installing my home server

1. install from dvd

2. enable restricted drivers

3. mount hds on startup

sudo vi /etc/fstab

Add following line for each hd:

UUID=aaabbcc	/media/volume_3 ext4	defaults	0	0

Where aaabbbccc is the uuid from:

sudo blkid

* Ubuntu 10.04 has a bug in the order drives are mounted when using the ‘/dev/sda’ syntax.

4. fix shutdown bug

sudo vi /etc/default/grub

Change this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

to:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi=force"

5. Install ssh

6. Fix network address

7. Install mythtv & mythweb

– Use ivtv for pvr 150

– Pvr 150 cards have recording issues since ivtv has been included since kernel 2.6.26.
To fix this, go to backend setup tool -> local settings -> VBI format = none

8. NoMachine

9. Install vmware server
